High Death Rate of House Bills.
The death rate in bills reported
from committees was exceedingly
high Friday morning. The spirit of
what's-the-use has entered into many
of the legislators and after glancing
at the huge general bills of less than
amazing importance are frequently
Thomas bill to create an armory
commission for the national guard
was derailed. Nettleton's bill appro
priating $5,000 to repay old soldiers
for pensions taken from they by the
state .board of public lands and build
ings was buried and Snyder's bill for
$15,000 for test gas and oil borings
was put under the daisies. Hector's
bill appropriating $4,000 for coal re
wards was also killed. Xo attempt
was made to resurrect any of these
bills except the Thomas armory bill
and this attempt was futile.
-Even the Snyder appropriation for
the elevator at the Grand Island sol
diers and sailors home was indefinite
ly postponed. Clark's bill for $50,000
for a new institution for the blind was
put out of business. Buck's bill for
the repeal of the Sheldon one-mill
levy was also ditched. The last of
the victims was H. R. 459, which in
tended to reduce the state board of
assessment to include only the gover
nor, secretary of state and the treasurer.

Several of the congregation pressed
about Mr. Roosevelt at the close of
the church service and wished him a
fine journey and good luck.
Mr. Roosevelt and his wife made
the long trip back to Sagamore Hill
on foot and seemed not to mind the

as an experience that might likely
be met on the dry veldt outside of
Nairobi, where he will make his
headquarters in British East Africa.
After luncheon Mr. Roosevelt, with
two officials of the steamship com

the baggage in order to see that
everything was right and tight for

baggage was checked for Naples and

Jury Fixes Penalty at Twenty Years
Nashville, Tenn. After filing a bond
totaling nearly $l,50o,000. Colonel D. B.
Cooper "and Robin J. Cooper, convict
ed of murder in the second degree and
sentenced to twenty years in the peni
tentiary for the killing of former
United States Senator Carniack, re
tired to the home of Judge J. C. Brad
ford and discussed the next move in
the case. Although Judge Hart fixed
,the bond at $25,000 for. each defend
ant, there was a rush to sign it on the
part of the wealthy citizens of Nash
ville, which fairly swamped the clerk
in the criminal court. If a new trial is
granted it will probably not take place
before next winter.
