Gates Bill to Go to Governor.
Another liquor question was decided
In the senate Thursday morning, when
by a jmajority of; one., .vote the upper
house"decided that Fort Crook should
be permitted to have a saloot. The
measure that was voted on was the
Gates bill from the house, and the
measure will now go to the governor.
The' enactment is to repeal the pres
ent law, which was j.assed two "years
ago, to the effect that no. saloon
should be placed within two miles of
a military post. The vote for the bill
was:, Banning. Bartos, Besse, Buhr
man, Diers, Douohue, Fuller, Henry,
Howell, Klein, Laverty. flyers. Ran

Volpp Those opposed: Bodinson,.

grant the same and providing that
the license fee shall not be less than

more than that number of people.

The Lincoln charter bill was re
ported Friday morning in the house
from the committee en cities and
towns, and went to the general file
to be reached in order. The file is al-,
ready well laden.
As reported the charter bears an
amendment providing that "it be sub
mitted as a whole to the people of
the city for ratification. No minority
report was made by the Lancaster
county and other members of the
committee who oppose this action, as
had been talked of. It was thought
that this matter could be more ap
propriately and properly fought out
on the floor of the house when the
bill comes up for consideration in
the committee of the whole. It is
argued that no other charter for Lin
coln at any previous session nor any
charter for any other city at this or
any other session has been so sub
mitted. It is also contended that there
is no legal provision lor such submis
sion, and that such an amendment
would be invalid.

Governor Shallenberger's bill, intra,
duced by Snjjder of Harlan, providing
some amendments to the law' on seek
ing pardons from the executive was
recommended for passage without dis
cussion. This bill is aimed partly as
a relief for the executive from the
flood of applications he receives at
all times from criminals under sen
tence asking for hearing with a view
of securing a pardon and partly to al
low the governor to use his discretion
in pardoning a criminal, under death
sentence when afflicted with an incur
able and contagious disease without
having absolutely to pardon them.
These two points only are added to
the present lav,, and beyond asking a
few questions the house made no ob
jection to recommending it
For District Referendum Bill.
One form of the initiative, restrict
ed to a small unit, a legislative dis
trict, was recommended for passage
by the committee on privileges and

the fact that the senate turned down

plied to a larger unit, the state.

made an enviable record as z humor

H. R. 493 Dan Killen's measure de
fining trespass upon a railroad track
and subjecting trespassers to penal
ties -was recommended for passage.
This Is a bill primarily for the bene
fit of the railroads and incidentally
for the benefit of the public. Railroads
are frequently made defendants in
damage suits where persons have been
injured who have trespassed on rail
road property and who have been
run down while on the track. The
trespass is frequently unintentional
but the railroad attorneys are forced
to sweat and lose sleep nevertheless.
To this they object. The bill pro

The bill is intended to cut out appeals
direct to federal court and to a va
riety of district courts. The objec
tion to the federal court is alleged
improper jurisdiction. The objection.
to the district court review is that
the attorney general is compelled to
maintain suits in so many localities

Measure. - -
Washington, D. C Both houses of
congress will meet in extraordinary
session at noon Monday, with Vice
President Sherman presiding' In the
senate, and. for the time Clerk Mc
Dowell officiating in the house. This
will be the beginning of the Sixty
first congress and the first act of im
portance in the house will be the or
ganization of that body for business.
The senate Is already organized, sot
mat outside of tne mere routine the
business of the first day will he con
fined to the presentation of the cre
dentials of Senator Stephenson of
Wisconsin. The certificate of the
governor of Wisconsin will be handed
In by Senator Burrows, chairman of
the, senate committee on privileges
and elections. It has been suggested
that Mr. Stephenson's colleague, Sea
ator LaFolIette, would oppose the
seating of Mr. Stephenson, but if
there was ever such intention on his
part it apparently has been aban
doned, and there is little doubt that
Mr. Stephenson -will be permitted to
resume his seat. Later in the week
the senate will begin the reorganiza
tion of its standing committees, and
until this work is accomplished little
business will be undertaken.
The house may be expected to more
than make up for the. senate deficien
cies in activities. With a fight on
the rules in prospect, in addition to
the election of speaker and other of
ficers, to say nothing of the usual bi
ennial lottery for seats, Monday bids
fair to be a much crowded day at the
southern end of the capitol.
The action of -the "republican cau
cus makes certain the re-election of
Speaker Cannon and of the other
house officers, but there is still doubt
in the minds of some as to just what
may be done with reference to the
rules, if the "insurgents" and their
democratic allies should win, the
program for the introduction -and
committee consideration of the tariff
may be -different from what it should
be if the "standpatters" should pre
vail. 7 Speaker Cannon's friends are
victorious in the matter of rules, the
president's message on the tariff will
be received Tuesday and immediately
followink its- reading the republican
members of the committee on ways,
and means will introduce their bill'
for the revision of the tariff
schedules. The speaker will then
appoint a committee on ways and
means and the bill will be referred
to that committee. ,
It is understood that if the selec
tion of the committee is left to the
speaker he will designate all the old
members of the committee who were
re-elected to congress. This would
leave but one vacancy, that caused
by the retirement of Mr. Bonyn-;e of
Colorado, and it is intimated that
Representative Mondell of Wyoming
will be chosen for that position. Tho
democratic members of the commit
tee would be- appointed at the same
time, and the present purpose is to
have the committee report the bill
back to the house after one or two
