The house passed the Omaha char
ter bill without spending any time in

The house made short work of the
anti-cigarct bill last Thursday even
ing. The intention was to dispose of
k in short order but a few supporters
of the bill wanted to air their views
and two or three made short talks
against it. The bill was killed by a
vote of about 2 to 1. If there was
any public sentiment in favor of such
a bill a different story might be 'old
but most of the members were con
vinced that the enactment of such a
law would bo adding only so much
dead timber to Mio statutes.
The senate child welfare committee
killed the sennte movie bill and re
ported the house bill for considera
tion. Senator Bcebc has a substi
tute bill which he is going to try to
get passed in place of tho house bill.
Senator Bcebe's bill gives a list of
pictures that may not be shown and
requires each exhibitor and distribu
tor to deposit 51,000 with the state
treasurer. If he is convicted of vio
lating the law he forfeits the money.
If not, he may get his money back
in thirty days after he sells out or
quits business but it must remain on
deposit ns long as he in business.
After spending almost an entire
day talking about the movie bill the
sennte finally decided to lay it over
until 2 o'clock Monday before taking
further nction. Tho committee report
ed out the house bill for discussion.
Senator Bcebc proposed amendments
which, practically, amounted to a new
bill. Tho substitute bill does not pro
vide for a board of censorship. It
specifies what pictures may not bo
shown and intends that it shall be en
forced tho same as other laws are
enforced. It also provides for a
81,000 deposit which will be forfeited
in case of violation of the law. The
big dispute was over tho adoption of
the substitute. J ho voto was a lie.
At the time this is written it is said
that two pr moro senators who voted
for the house bill are about to chango
their minds and that it will bo killed.

millions of his dollars to develop the perfect
realism of trie New Edison. He has proved
this perfect realism by comparing the New
Edison with living artists 5,000 times before
more than 5 million people. The New Edison
is positively the only phonograph which can
sustain this test.
