'Thomas J. Majors was a member of
the state senate of Nebraska in 1887 ,
and while a member numerous bills
I were introduced which were of par ticu-
l Y lar benefit and interest to all mechanics
( and laborers of the state of Nebraska.
It has been charged that Governor
Majors is not the friend of labor. For
the purpose of refuting this charge his
legislative official record should be presumed -
sumed to be the very best record to
show what the political history of the
" individual was and is , and it certainly
is better evidence than the mere idle
street or newspaper gossip which is
generally circulated against a candidate
, before the election.
Read for yourselves. Judge of Governor -

you can readily verify yourselves by

But you can go further and by an examination -
amination of the senate journal of 1887 ,

WARRANTS DECLARED "STATE SECURI
When the legislature of 1890 conven
ed it was ascertained that a large sum
of money had accumulated in the state
treasury to the credit of the permanent -
nent "school fund.l It amounted to
several hundred thousand dollars , sand
because of the failure of the "Board of
Educational Lands and Funds" ( consisting -
sisting of the Governor , Secretary of ,
State , Treasurer , Attorney General ,
and Commissioner of Public Lands and
Buildings ) to find suitable investment
for this money , it was remaining idle
in the state treasury , and of no use to
any one except the state treasurer.
The constitution of the state provides
"that the school fund should not be invested -
vested in anything , except in United
States securities , or registered county
bonds of this state. " The board had a
short time previous decided' that state
warrants drawing interest were not
"State securities" within the meaning
of the state constitution. At this time
there was a very large number of state
warrants held in New York and Philadelphia -
delphia , which had been endorsed by
the state treasurer. "presented and not
paid for want of funds. " and these
were under the law drawing seven per
cent interest. To save this interest to
the school fund Governor Majors , then
a member of the house of representatives -
tives , on January 10 , 1859 , introduced
the following resolution , House Roll
"Whereas a question has been raised
as to the proper interpretation of the
constitution of the state of Nebraska.
"Therefore , be it resolved , That
state warrants , when endorsed by the
state treasurer , 'presented and not paid
for the want of funds , ' are state securities -
ties under the meaning of article 8 , section -
tion J , of the constitution of the state
of Nebraska. "
On January 12 , ISS9 , Mr. Majors offered -
fered the following resolution :
"Resolved by the house of representatives -
tatives of the State of Nebraska. That
the supreme court of the state are
hereby requested to furnish this body
with an opinion setting forth whether
or not state warrants drawing interest
are state securities under article 8 , section -
tion 9 , of the state constitution. "
The resolution prevailed , and the
supreme court rendered an affirmative
decision , by reason of which thousands
of dollars was saved to the permanent
WORLD-IIERALD COMMENDS MAJORS.
The Omaha World says Majors saved
the state 532.500 a year interest alone
by the introduction of the foregoing
From Omaha World , January 21,18S9 :
"Tom Majors introduced a joint resolution -
tion the other day which seems to have
attracted slight attention considering
the importance of the subject. There
is an idle school fund in the state aggregating -
gregating about three-quarters of a
million dollars. There are also unpaid
state warrants aggregating a similar
amount drawing interest at 7 per cent.
The constitution says that the fund
may be used in the purchase of United
States government bonds , of county
bonds registered , or in the purchase of
state securities The question is , Is a
state warrant a state security ? If so ,
Mr. Majors and his followers are in
favor of applying the idle school fund
to the defrayrnent of the warranted indebtedness -
debtedness , and thus saving to tile'
state in interest an annuity of $52:100.
The resolution aimed to declare the
state warrant a state security , but as
the matter , after investigation. seemed
to rest with the interpretation of the
constitution , and as it appeared that
the legislature possessed no jurisdiction
the resolution was withdrawn. and an
opinion solicited from the supreme
court. If that tribunal shall decide
that a state warrant is a state security
and the money of the school fund shall
be used to call in the warrants. the
banks of Nebraska will lose a pretty
penny , and the state treasurer , who re-
ceieves from the banks the interest on
state deposits , will have to curtail his
personal expenses for a few thousands
a year. "
AGAINST A PRISON CONTRACT.
Majors was in favor of the repeal of
the act extending the -'prison coutraet'
from Stout to Mosher. 'rife Omaha
World of January 23 , 18S9 , says : "Rep-
resentative Majors of Neinaha introduced -
duced a very innocent looking bill. It
simply provided for the repeal of chapter -
ter S6 of the session lawsot IS87. Turning -
ing to this chapter a little surprise
party is presented. Chapter SG is the
bill passed by the last legislature cx-
tending the 1Y. H. B. Stout "prison
contract" to C. W. Mosher. Mr. Majors
said to your correspondent that he
thought this act would cancel the contact -
tact ; that the measure was a most iniquitous -
iquitous and corrupt measure , and the
state could not too quickly endeavor to
right the great wrong. He thought
something could be done.
The Herald , Omaha , Friday. March
22 , 18S9 , says : "House Roll 244 is
Majors' bill repealing chapter 86 of the
session laws of 1887. This affects see-
tion 48 of the law as it stands in the
compiled statutes , which provides for
the extension of the contract of C. W.
Mosher for the care and labor of the
convicts in the state penitentiary. By
this contract 40 cents per day is paid by
the state for the care of each convict.
The contract was originally made to
W. H. B. Stout , and was by him transferred -
ferred and assigned to Mosher.
lfajors' bill seeks to destroy the act extending -
tending this contract ten years beyond i
the time it was originally to runwhich
was to October , 1889"
This bill was indefinitely postponed
by the house upon report of the committee -
mittee on March 22 , 1889.

A Temple of Health
Where vigor , good digestion , appetite and
sound repose minister to physical comfort , is
the bodily structure which , however much its
foundations have been sapped by ill health , has
been restored-rebuilt , as it were-by the great
renovating tonic , Hostetter's Stomach Bitters.
Nothing infuses strength into a debilitated
frame like this saving medicine , which , in the
vigor and regularity it imparts to the system ,
endows it with the surest defense against disk
ease , and the best guaranty of a long life and
hale old ago. Worn out men of business , tired
mechanics , overworked mill hands , miners
broken down by hardship and exposure to malaria -
laria , mariners and tourists , all declare that it
is the best safeguard against the influences of
fatigue , bodily or mental , and of climate and
temperature. Incomparable for bilious , rileu-
matte , kidney and nervous troubles.

The Rochester Post-Express tells of
a clergyman whose sermons were of

asylum The next Sunday the pastor
stalked across the room , and grasping
the first hand lie came to , which happened -
pened to belong to one of the smallest
orphans , cried out loudly : "Good morning -
ing , my dear sir. How are your father
and mother ? "

A recent story in the Youth's Companion -

other instance in which a tiresome
march was relieved by a bit of drollery.
Major B. was a severe officer. us
command was marching along a hot
and dusty road in southern Pennsylva-
nia. Orders were very strict against
foraging , but in spite of them a soldier
suddenly sprang out of the ranks in
pursuit of a fat gobler standing among
the sumac bushes on the roadside.
The turkey started off in a hurry ,
with the man after him. Major B.
called out angrily : "Halt ! What do
you mean ? Halt ! "
A few hurried steps and the soldier
laid the turkey low with a blow from
his rifle barreL
"There , dum ye ! " he exclaimed as he
picked it up. "I reckon you'll understand -
stand that when the major says halt he
means halt ! "
