OUR LINCOLN LETTER.
Lincoln , Xeb. , Feb. 23.
( Special Correspondence )
Witli remarkable unanimity
the republican organs are
seeking to make it appear
that the present legislature
is the most extravagant in
the history of Nebraska.
The opposite is true. In
order to make it appear that
the present democratic legis
lature is extravagant the re
publican organs hail as an
appropriation every bill in
troduced with an appropria
tion clause. And with the
same unanimity these re
publican organs forget testate
state what is an absolute
fact that the appropria
tions made by the "econom
ical session1' two years ago
were utterly inadequate in
many instances , and the
present legislature has been
compelled to allow defic
iency appropriations in order
to keep state institutions
running. Funds that should
have lasted until April 1.
1909 , were exhausted two ,
three and four months ago.
In the very nature of
things it will cost Nebraska
more money to transact its
business during the next two
years than it did during any
two previous years. Any
growing business demands
There are more inmates
in the asylums to provide
for : there arc more convicts
in the penitentiary to pro
vide for ; there are more in
mates of the reformatories ;
state buildings must receive
more repairs as they grow
older. New buildings are
demanded and must be pro
vided. It is true that some
large appropriations com
paratively speaking may
be provided. But as a rule
the increase will consist in
appropriations for experi
mental farms and stations ,
buildings imparatively de-
imandecl at the Normal
school , and for a better en
forcement of laws safe
guarding the public health.
The finance , ways and
means committee is besieged
with petitions for heavy ap
propriations. Wore it to
accede to every req uest made
it would not have half
enough money to meet them.
But the committee is care
fully scrutinizing every bill ,
is cutting down here and
there , and getting down to
the real needs instead of
acting hastily upon the de
sires of the prompters. The
general appropriations bill
will be before the legislature
by the time this paper is in
the hands of its readers ,
and then the" public will
know exactly how much
truth there is in"the charge
of ' "undue extravagance"
made by the republican org
The bank guarantee bill
prepared by -
mittee of the joint house and
senate committees on bank
ing , and endorsed by the full
committee , has been pre
sented to the legislature. Jt
Fulfills every promise made
in the platform , meets with
the approval of both deposi
tors and bankers , and has
the endorsement of Gov.
Shalienberger , who advised
with the committee in its
preparations , it strength
ens the provisions for the
proper inspection of the
banks , and is an acknow
ledged improvement upon
rhe Oklahoma kny. In a
short address before the
joint session on Wednesday
of last -veek Gov. Shallen-
berger gave the bill as
drawn his approval.
"Hoggingpatronage" is ,
another favorite cry of the
; republican organs. Jtisin-
'teresting ' to note that these
same organs are bewailing
the fact that the democratic
( majority is merely undoing
'what ' a republican majority
did when the conditions as
they exist today were ex
actly reversed. Amongoth-
jer bills introduced , and
j which is the special bete noir
of the g. o. p. managers , is
one providing that Railway
Commissioner Cowgill shall
have something to say about
the management of the rail
way commission. As it now
stands the two republican
members , being a majority ,
can so frame up things as to
control every appointment ,
issue every order and prac
tically and effectually nullify
any effort put forth by Mr.
( 'owgil 1. The proposed bill
merely makes it possible for
Mr. Towgill to have a.voice
in the management of the
commission. And this is all
the foundation there is to
the charge of "hogging the
patronage" in the railway
The time limit for the in
troduction of bills will be
up by the last of the week ,
and then will begin the work
ruthlessly r slaughtering
legislation asked for "by
request" and calculated to
confer special benefits.
The "physical valuation"
bill has been introduced ,
and it makes provision for
carrying out in every way
the platform pledges. Mr.
Bryan's address before the
joint session dwelt especial
ly upon this platform pledge
and the applause that greet
ed his remarks was evidence
of the popularity of the
One of the most import
ant and far-reaching reve
nue bills introduced- the
one framed by Ollis of Val
ley , and Miller of Lancast
er , and known as Senate
File 268. It provides for
the submission of an amend
ment to Sec. 1 , Art. 9 , of the
constitution , the amend
ment being as follows : "All
property , except as herein
after provided , shall be
taxed ; all tax , whether state ,
local 'or municipal , shall be
uniform upon * all classes of
subjects within the territor
ial limits of the authorities
levying the tax , and shall
be levied and collected un
der general laws. " This
simply means that a legisla
ture may enact a law that
will raise all the state reve
nue from corporations and
leave each county and mu
nicipality to raise the neces
sary revenue as it sees fit.
This course will remove
many obstacles now in the
way of raising revenue , and
will permit the taxpayers of
any specified territory to fix
their own tax tax rate for
the maintenance of their in
stitutions , no part of it go
ing to the support of the
Among the senate files
that have run the senate

Because Gov. Shalien
berger has denied himself to
callers during the forenoon
while the legislature is in
session it is sought to be
shown by the opposition that
he is undemocratic. Gov.
Shalienberger. being a busi
ness man , has merely adopt
ed a business rule. lie
wants the morning hours to
himself so he can scan bills
look after the business of
his department and read his
mail. The rule works bene
ficially to all whose concern
ror the welfare of the state
outweighs their concern in
social or selfish ends.
