vorably reported by their committees
and placed on general file.
SENATE. The senate was in ses
sion but a little over two nours on
the 5th, but succeded in passing four
curative acts and two bills, one pro
v.ding for the sale of unclaimed goods
b railroad companies, and the other
for cutting of weeds by irrigation

referred to the committee on agricul
ture: "We, the members of the. state
board of agriculture; seeing the need
of more general knowldge of agricul
ture among the boys and girls of Ne
braska, and believing that all teach--ng
should be in the order, first ccn- J
crete, then abstract, and that nature
studies should be introduced into our
county and village schools, respect
fully ask the legislature to make such
additional requirements for first, sec
oa(j and hjni grade and state certifi-
cates as will show the holder's fitness
for teaching one or more studies in
pure agriculture. Resolved, That it
is the sense of the Nebraska state
board of agriculture, in annual meet- i
ing assembled at Lincoln, January,
1901, that there should be made by the
state legislature such appropriations
for an exhibit of the agriculture and
horticulture resources of Nebraska at

was thereupon placed on general file.
SENATE The senate was In ses
sion Ipss than two hours On the 1st.
an adjournment being taken after the
joint conference until next Tuesday
at 11 o'clock. The reason for adjourn
ing from Friday over until Tuesday is
for the purpose of giving the vari
ous committees an opportunity of ac
complishing some of the work which
has been accumulating because of
their inability to get together often
enough to keep the work up to elate.
The work of the senate proper Jo well

posal of a few bills up for second

erinarian, and who shall receive $2

officers are also set forth. The com
mittee will sit again. But one bill
was introduced. The senate adjourn
ed until Tuesday.

a halt Martin, Ransom, Currie, Mil
ler, Oleson, Lyman, Harlan and
O'Neill all expressed themselves on
:he subject of repealing the state bar
kers' law. The measure was placed on
third reading and Senator Currie
moved that it be recomm.tted. This
was done by a vote of 18 to, 12 after
lengthy discussion. Senate file No. 29.
empowering county beards to decide
whether or not county fairs shall be
held, was recommended for passage.
Senate files Nos. 6, 8 and 9 were also
recommended for passage in commit
tee of the whole. They are curative
acts introduced by Senator Young,
benate file No. 13, another oy Young,
was tabled to be considered at some
future time. It is an amendment to
the game laws of the slate. The extent
of the demand for a constitutional I
convention was a subject oh which
senators possessed a wide divergence
of opinions this mornings Senator
Oleson's bill to provide a method for
electors to express themselves at the
next general election for members of
the legislature was considered in com

Senator Zeigler of Cedar county has
prepared a bill which has for its ob
ject the repeal of that section of the
road law which allows 75 per cent
of the land road tax to be paid in
labor, the law being amended so that
the land tax wiu all be paid in cash,
leaving taxpayers the privilege of
working out their poll tax only. Un
der the present law the taxpayer is
allowed to work out his poll tax and
75 per cent of his land tax, which
leaves the amountofroad tax paid in
cash so small that there is never
any money to sepak of In the road
An act creating a landlord's lien and
providing for its enforcement is the
object of a bill which will soon be
introduced by Senator Ransom of
Douglas. The bill provides that a
landlord shall have a lien for his rent
upon all crops growing upon the leas
ed premises and upon any other per
sonal property of the tenant which

88, relating to the method of draw
ing juries, goes on the statute book,
and as it has an emergency clause it
becomes of immediate effect To all
intents and purposes, and probably so
far as the legislators who passed it
know, the act Is simply curative, cor
recting the wording so as to .make
it apply to Lancaster county undfer the
new census, which has reduced its
population below the limit of 70,000.
The really important part of. the
measure, however, is that It works a
complete change in the system of
drawing grand juries, not only in
Lancaster, but in Douglas county as
well, by putting them on the same
footing with petit juries.
Senator. Baldrige's bill providing
for the appointment of nine commis

LONDON. Feb. 9. Public atfeniiori
has again turned to South' Africa by
t6 dispatch of reinforcements and
the publication of Lord Roberts' mail
Rumors have, been la circulation
that Mr. Chamberlain has reconsid
ered his South African policy and was
contemplating a round-table confer
ence with Mr. John. Morley-and Sir
William Harcourt and the recall of
Sif Alfred Milner. The Daily Mail
says It is able to assert, on Mr. Cham
berlain's authority, that the story is
a fabrication and that the government
retains tne most absolute confidence
in Sir Alfred Milner. "Mr. Chamber
lain flatly denies," says the . Mail,
"that he has had any communication
with any member of the opposition
on the subject of the war."
Lord Roberts' dispatches are not
regarded as giving any further elu
cidation of the conduct of the war,
but they are interesting, as proving
that throughout the campaign he nev
er had sufficient men, horses or sup
plies to cover such a vast field of op
eration. Lord Roberts asserts deliberately
that the permanent tranquillity of the
republic "depends on the complete
disarmament of the inhabitants, a task
difficult, I admit, but attainable with
time and patience."
Looking at all the circumstances.'
Lord Roberts says the campaign is
"unique in the annals of war" and he
pays the highest tribute to the gal
lantry and worth of the troops, de
claring that "no finer farce ever took
the fleld under the British flag."
There is a general idea that the
dispatches have suffered considerable
excision at the hands of the war office.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 8. It is said
at the war office that no more general
officers of the army will be appointed
until the senate has acted on those
sent in on Tuesday. One reason is
that there will be no vacancy in the
list of generals unless General Miles
is confirmed in the higher rank. Un
less a vacancy occurs in that manner,
it is predicted that it- will be filled
by the appointment of Colonel C.
Bates, who was yesterday nominated
a brieadier eeneral. Such an ap

Under the present plan Brigadier

The railroads have ben greatly
bused as soulless corporations that
were grinding the life blood out of the
people. The great Galveston disaster
has, however, revealed the fact that
the managers of these corporations
have hearts which are susceptible of
being touched by the cries of distress.
Their trains were piaced at the dis
posal of all those engaged hi relief
work on the coast. Provisions and
supplies were carried forward free of
charge, committees from every sec
tion of the state were furnished trans
portation, and when the refugees from
Galveston began to pour into Houston
and it became a serious question what
was to be done with them the railroads
solved the problem by furnishing
transportation without charge to all
who wished to leave and to any point
they wished to go. Grand Master An
derson informs us that but for this
fact Houston would have been overrun
with people who had to be cared for,
and that suffering and distress would
,have been largely increased as well as
the cost of meeting conditions which
would have prevailed. Bro. Anderson
desires us, through these columns, to
thank the different roads for the great
service rendered his committee at
Houston. If it were possible we would
be glad to see parallel columns, in one
of which should appear the acts of
these railroad corporations in a time
of great calamity and distress, and in
the other the amount contributed by
the little two-by-four demagogues who
are always trying to array the preju
dices of the masses against any and
every kind of enterprise. From the
