Hiawatha Woman Killed Instantly
While Mrs. J. B. Hinphorrn of ilia

When one legislator says to an
other, "You vote for my bill and I'll j
vote for yours." you have a situation
of log rolling When it becomes rain
pant, ns it sometimes does in legls
lathe bodies. It is well night Im
possible to n il what will come nut
of tile string of trades anti barters,
ruder sue It conditions merit has,
little to do with the enactment of
measures into law. and men are fre
quently found voting for bills they
do not sit heart favor at all Grati
fication of sectional selfishness is ■
often swapped for gratification of
corporation greed, and the people's j
money Is squandered to defeat the
very laws the pi ople demand.
in the present Nebraska legislature
log rolling Is being prrnctind to a
dangerous and vicious degree. The
hi 11 for capital removal and the one
for the establishment of an agricul j
turnl school in southwestern Nebras-,
ka would have no show at all except (
for ttie support given them by legis
lators who hope to gain in return
vote., to kill important pending leg
Isialion. It is mighty near bribery J
when a group of legislators form a I
i onib't’ntlon to vote $100,000 of the I
people's money to satisfy a sectional j
demand solely for the purpose of]
geti ng return votes for or against
more important bills. Worst of,all
it is bribery with the people's mon
ey us the bribe.
Kvery measure should s tand or
fall on its own merits; and every
legislator should ubsolutt ly refuse
to vote for any bill that ho ho
lier* s to I e wrong, or against any
hill that ho believes to be right. But
legislators are nol always perfect.
They ijeod a little bolstering up by it
public opinion that is aisle to ex
press Itself tangibly. This bolstering
may best he supplied through the
Initiative and referendum. If the
people csf Nebraska today had the ini
tlatlve, the legislators would he a
great deal more concerned about
passing measures Use people want,
for they would know that the peo
ple had the power to get those meas
ures in another way. And if the
people had the power 1o get those
measures in another way. And if
the people had the right of the ref
erendum our legislators would be a
great deal more concerned about
passing bills that the people do isot
waist, for the people would hold the
power of veto. Verily, the present
situation gives an intense longing for
these weapons of People's Power.

WM. TAFT FORCES SILENCE ON
President Helped ’Frisco to Land
Exposition, But Insists Hector,
ing of Japs Shall Cease
Washington, Feb. 24—One explana
tion of President Taft’s eager sup-!
port of San Francisco as the site for |
tiie • xposition celebrating the open
ing of tlie Panama canal was found
today in the elimination of the immi
gration restriction clause and in
tiie other concessions made to the
Japanese in the new proposed treaty
with Japan made public today.
Taft believes that lie and congress
have put San Francisco and Califor
nia "under bond to keep the peace
until after 3915, the year of the ex
position.” That the anti-Japanese ele
ment in California would raise great
objection to any concessions to Japan
was considered certain until the ex
“California intends to hold a
great internaional exposition in 1915
and more than all other states, she
must endeavor to keep all of our inter
national relations as cordial as pos
sible,” explained a prominent diplo
“Especially is it important that Cal
ifornia should do nothing to cause a
break witli Japan.”
That Taft put forth his most pow
erful efforts to win the fair for San
Francisco is a known fact. He urged
liis friends in congress to vote for
tlie coast city and used every means
within ids power to aid in bringing
about the signal victory which Cali
fornians won in congress.

One of the things the city council
might well undertake to remedy, to
lie grmt advantage and security of
the trawling public, and at little or
no cost to the town, is the condition
of the lighting about the stations.
With the growth ot the town and es
pecially with the development as a
railroad center, a coarse element will
make this their rendezvous. These
charm era naturally congregate about
the stations. Not loss than eight
passenger trains stop at the two sta
tions every night. The light at eith
er station is anything but what it
should be. The safeyt of the tavel
ing public demands it, and steps
should be. The safety of the travel

improvements. It will not only add
much to the comfort and security of
[those who have occasion to come and
