Governor Deitrich vetoed the supreme
court commission appropriation bill , but
subsequently changed his mind and signed
without the vetoing provision. He also
changed his mind In regard to some of
the appropriations for help in the office
of the clerk of the supreme court and
the library and court reporter's office.
In the general expense bill a number of
items were vetoed , including the follow
ing : For the purpose of purchasing forty
acres of land to be used for garden and
farm purposes in connection with the hos
pital for the insane at Norfolk , Nebraska.
J4.000 ; stand-pipe soldiers and sailors
home at Milford , Nebraska , $3,500 ; engine

The governor withheld his approval of
bouse roll 117 , being a joint resolution
proposing to amend section 1 of article
lo of the constitution of the state of Ne
braska , relative to the manner of sub-
miting and adopting amendments to the
constitution of the state of Nebraska.
_ A number of Items in house roll No.
478 , miscellaneous claims bill , were vetoed ,
the reason being that they did not repre
sent lawful claims against the state of
Nebraska. Among the items cut out was
the claim of Miss Taylor , which was
compromised after a bitter fight in both
branches at $1.000. Miss Taylor originally
asked for $7.400.
The veto of the $90.000 item in connec
tion with the state university was given
as the governor says in his veto message
because he believed the revenue of the
institution under the one-mill levy would
not be sufficient to meet the entire appro
Among the bills vetoed by the governor
are two that have attracted little atten
tion. One is house roll No. 129 by Ander
son , designating the Institute for the blind
as the Nebraska school for the blind and
the institute for deaf and dumb as the
Nebraska school for the deaf. The rea
son for this veto was that the change
would make much confusion.
House roll No. 23 , by Hathorn of Red
Willow was vetoed. It was for the relief
of Russel F. Loomis of Red Willow coun
ty , and authorizing the governor to deed
certain land which Mr. Loomis had taken
as a homestead , and which afterward
proved to be school land. The governor
held that it was bad policy to approve
claims of this character.
The veto of house jxill No. 117 , by Few
ler , was" given because the governor
thought it inadvisable to spend money to
submit one amendment , when re regard
ed It Imperative to submit other amend
ments soon. His idea of calling an extra
session was given expression through the
veto . of this measure. It was a bill to
provide that in the vote on constitutional
amendments a majority of the electors
voting on the amendments shall be suf
ficient to pass the amendments. The con-
stitutinon now requires a majority of all
votes cast at the election.
Governor Dietrich said in regard to his
action on bills that he paid no attention
to the introducer and in fact did not
know who the Introducers of the great
majority of bills signed were. One or two
members came to see him about their
measures but this was not the rule. The
enrolled measures bore no name and gave
no intimation to him whose bills they
were. He said his vetoes of appropria
tions were made necessary by the fact
that the resources of the state were too
small to meet what the legislature had
planned to make them pay.

THE BEST HE EVER SAW.
A Mlsourlan Pronounces on the FarmIng -
Ing : Possibilities of Western Canadu.
Just at present considerable interest
is being aroused in the fact that a few
new districts ( of limited acreage ) are
being opened out by the Canadian gov
ernment in Saskatchewan and Assini-
boia ( western Canada ) , and any information
mation concerning this country is
eagerly sought. Mr. W. R. Corser , of
Higginsville , Lafayette Co. , Mo. , was a
delegate there during last summer , and
writing of his impressions he says :
"I found surprising yields of grain
of all descriptions. One farmer I vis
ited threshed of 175 acres :
" 600 bushels of wheat from fifteen
acres , 40 bushels to acre.
" 600 bushels of barley from ten
acres , 60 bushels to acre.
" 15,000 bushels of oats from 150
acres , 100 bushels to acre.
"The samples were all No. 1.
"I also saw a considerable number of
stock. Swine do well and there is no
disease amongst thorn. They are a
good source of income to the farmer.
The cattle on the range beat anything
I ever saw. Fat and ready for beef ,
fully matured and ripened on the nu
tritious grasses of the prairie. I am
firmly convinced that this country of
fers better facilities for a poor man
than any I have ever seen. "
Information concerning these lands
can be had from any agent of the gov
ernment whose advertisement appears
elsewhere in this paper.
