Whllo the new law was passed in
In03 , It Illd not hecome operative until
1J04 ! , and it hns had no appreclahle effect -
fect upon the state's financIal contll-
tlnn , With refereu'o to the sufficiency
of the state's Income urlng the comIng -
Ing blpl1nlum , I quote from the cUlTent
biennial report of Stale Auditor Weston -
ton :
"To the estimated' Income Crom the
levies of 1905-6 have been added a COll-
servnttve estimate of Income from bacl ,
taxes and a "er ) ' conslderablo amount
derived from 111lscellaneolls sources ,
malting the total estlmato of Income
for the genernl fund $2,81J,2H,71. ! As
agnlr , t this estlmatoll' general fund Income -
come , the eBtlmated requirements for
the 1Ilpnnlal porlod commonclng April
1 , 1905 , and chargenble to the general
fund , amount to $2,5.10,316 , "
I'rom ; the aboyo It Is apparent that
it the present legislature holds Its al1-
proprlntlons within reasouable bounds
the receIpts of the comIng biennIum
will exceed the exr-endltures by $278.-
928 , a condition which has not existed
In Nl'braslm for many years ,
'Vlth such n. state debt as no\v confronts -
fronts us It requires no argument to i
malte clear that the strictest economy I
consistent with the public weal sheuld
dl"tll1gulsh all your rplnllons with the
pUbllc treasUlT. The opportunity Is
most auspicIous , The state instltu- ,
tlons were never In better condition.
'I11e two precedIng legislatures made
appropriations for permanent Improvements -
ments nmountlng to n llttlo more than
$ GOOOOO. The result Is that needed
buildings and equlpments ha"o been
generously proYlded and the present
Il'glslntlvc body wll1 bo expected to debut
but IIttlo in the way of expenditures ,
'rhe hane of every legslath'o [ bed ) '
Is the subsldlz'lI lobb ) ' . Vicious legislation -
lation is 1I0t the result of Ignorance ,
but Is rather the result of prejudicIal
infiuences which ought not to exist
nnd which' certaInly ought not to be
tolerated within the halls , cloalt rooms
or otJIces of any deliberative body
which has power over the destinies of
n. people. I recommend' that such ac-
Uon be talten as will protect ) 'our
membership from the onslaught at
privnte and corporation lobbyists who
seel , to accompllsh pernicious ends by
the exerclso of undue Intluence.
The legislature of two years ago appropriated -
propriated $35,000 for a Nebrasltu exhibit -
hibit at St. Louis and Inld upon the
chler execuU"o the dut ) ' of nppolntlng
a non-partisan commission of three
members upon which should devolve
nll responsllllllt ) ' pertaining thereto , I
am informed that , after paying all ob-
1Igatlons , there will remain unexpended -
ed about $16,000 of the ol'lglnal nllpro-
prlatlon. This Is certaInly a most
F-ratlfylng condition , one whIch spenlts
eloquently or the wIsdom and dlscro-
tlon which the commlsBlon oxerclsed
In the discharge of Its utles.
'rho people of the PacIfic coast in

dent Jefferson durIng the year tollow-
Ing the purcha.e ! or J oulHlnna and
whIch succeeded In penetrating to the
mouth of the Columbia rlvor in 1805.
'rho wOI'I of the food commission Is
necessarJly curl:1lled by reason of the
fact that the law restricts Inspection
to dairy products , cIder and vinegar ,
As a conEequence the grcat mass of
food products containIng InjurIous
adutternnts es"apo the jurIsdiction of
the commission and ar. : ! amenable only
to the general statutel ! . The ! : ! ubject
Is an ImpOltant onc. It seems desirable -
able tbat the present law bo broadened
In its scope and made to Include aU
food products , and that provision bo

the enlarged duties may make ncces-
Tbo preceding legislature mlsed the
