II SPECIAL SESSION
MR. BRYAN SEES WORK FOR NE
INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM
Letter to Democratic Members Ask
ing Their Views in Reference
to the Proposed Extra Session.
Hon. W. J. Bryan has mailed a let
ter to all democratic members of the
last legislature asking them if they
will support an initiative and refer
endum resolution for the submission
of a constitutional amendment to
that effect at the general election
He has also asked J. H. Msckett,
Jr.. president of the Nebraska Direct
Legislation league to get a poll of the
republican members. The letter fdr
most part follows:
My Dear Sir: The failure of the
legislature to rbmlt the initiative
and referendum at its regular session
has brought county option which is
direct legislation into the present
campaign, and this question Is draw
ing attention from national issues. It
is unfortunate that this should be the
case at this time when six congress
men are to be elected, and when a
senator is to be chosen by the next
Unless the mistake made by the
legislature can be remedied, our par
ty will be confronted by a very seri
ous situation. It might promise in Its
platform to submit the initiative and
referendum at the next session, but it
could hardly expect to be trusted to
submit the measure next ime if with
a democratic governor, senate and
house it is unable to do so. now, un
less it declares its Independence of
In my opinion the best way to meet
the situation is by the submission of
ths initiative and referendum by a
called session of the legislature and
I have no doubt that Governor Shal
lenberger will call such a special ses
sion if assured that a majority of
both houses will support the initia
tive and referendum resolution,
which will give to the people the
legislative machinery through which
they could legislate upon any ques
tion In which they are Interested. A
called session would also doubtless
ratify the income tax amendment
If it is not possible to submit the
Initiative and referendum for ratifica
tion as a constitutional amendment
at the election this fall, nothing is
left for our party to do but to de
clare for the initiative and referen
dum and county option in its state
platform this summer. In order to
ascertain whether an initiative and
referendum resolution would pass In
case of a special session being called,
I take the liberty of submitting the
question to you and to the other dem
ocratic members of the senate and
house. Please wire me at once, at
my expense, whether you would be
willing to support such a resolution
at a special session.
In a written statement regarding
his letter to democratic members, Mr.
Bryan says: "I hope that the dem
ocratic and republican papers that fa
vor the initiative and referendum
will take the matter up and urge the
passage of the initiative and referen
dum resolution. It might be well for
the committeemen and all others,
both democrats and republicans, who
are Interested in the present cam
paign, to see these senators and mem
bers who didn't support the meas

to them the importance of the special

Vannees Writes Again
C. C. Vanness, a member of the
Soldiers' home at Grand Island, who,
for complaining of the meat betas;
served to the old veterans, was
charged by the democrats with trying
to stir up trouble for poUtlcal rea
sons, has denied the charge In a let
ter to Secretary of State Junkln.
Vanness said he would show to any
person who visited the home that the
soldiers were not fed good meat and
that those who could not come there
could be convinced by calling upon
the governor and asking for reports.
STATE FIRE WARDEN
'Seeks to Have Instruction in tht
A. V. Johnson, state fire warden,
has written a letter to State Superin
tendent Bishop suggesting that a day
or an hour of some day each month be
set aside for the teachers to instruct
their pupils about how to prevent fires
and what to do In some emergencies.
It is Mr. Johnson's idea that if the
children are taught the dangerous use
of gasoline and kerosene and what to
do In case of explosion, as well as how
to prevent fires by keeping refuse
burned and the danger of permitting
old papers to be stac-ned in an attic
or closet that the lessons now learned
will remain with them always.
Mr. Johnson gave out the following

New Fraternal Organization.
The Clansmen of America, of
Omaha, a new fraternal organization,
has been licensed to do business in

Cornell President Sees Good in

Believes Congress Should Grant Re

Would Change Only One
Ithaca, N. T. In an address
before the Council congress on
Friday night President Jacob Gould
Schurman of Cornell commended the
scheme for the Rockefeller foundation
for which congress has been asked
for a national charter. President
Schurman devoted his entire speech
of several thousand words to this sub
ject and In summing up he said:
"I recognize that section No. 2 of the
bill, which defines the object of the
Rockefeller foundation, authorizes and
empowers that foundation to do any
thing and everything which may pro
mote and advance human civilization,
that is to say, morals and religion, art
and science, manners snd social Inter
course, and aU that concerns the po
litical, economic, and material well
being of Individuals snd communities.
This is a vast field for the exercise of

a vast scheme of philanthropy, for the

culable benefit and blessing to man

and safe to give the foundation the
sort of organization he desires. Neith
er now nor hereafter does it seem nec
essary to limit the scope of his benefi
cence, which Is coextensive with the
efforts of mankind to attain a higher
"The only change I would desire to
see In the proposed bill is the total or
partial elimination of the method cf
selecting trustees by co-operation. The
organization might well be left a close
corporation, if Mr. Rockefeller so de
sires, for a generation. But after that
time I am confident that it would inure
both to the efficiency of the foundation
and to the public welfare to say noth
ing of the satisfaction of the sentiment
of a democracy If the majority of the
trustees were appointed by the presi
dent of the United States, with the
advice and consent of the senate, or
selected by some other high abiding,

tors, those master medical specialists,
who have their Omaha Institute at
232 Neville block, corner Sixteenth
and Harney streets.
Omaha. Neb.. March 9. 1910.
"For ten weeks I lay flat on my back
with Sciatic rheumatism and kidney
trouble and could not move myself in
the bed and when I was moved, could
scarcely bear tho excruciating pain.
I had three physicians and tried threo
or four different kinds of patent med
icine in the hope of finding something
that would relieve the terrible agony
for I could not move hand or foot
without suffering more than It seemed
possible for one to suffer and live,
but nothing seemed to help me.
One day a friend whose wife was
under treatment by the United Doc
tors, came to see me. He told me
how quickly she had been helped
from the first by these wonderful
specialists and how well she had been
ever since, and urged me to make a
great effort to get to their offices oa
the second floor of the Neville block,
corner Sixteenth and Harney streets.
I hired a man to help me and he had
to almost carry me Into their office.
That was four weeks' ago and today I
walked Into their effice without even
the use of a cane. In two days after
beginning the treatment I could notice
an improvement and it has been a
steady and gradual Improvement ever
"I feel that I cannot speak too
highly of your wonderful new system
of treatment and would like to urge
all who are sick and suffering to go
to the United Doctors."
