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 this fall. 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 legislature. 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 special interests. 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 ure at the last session and point out to them the importance of the special secsion. o Hughes Is Appreciative. In reply to its telegram of congrat ulations over his appointment as a member of the United States su preme court, the State Railway com mission has received the following message from Governor Hughes: Albany. N. Y.. April 27. Nebraska State Railway Commission. Lincoln, Neb.: "I cordially appreciate your telegram. "CHARLES E. HUGHES." Ruling on Bleached Flour. State Food Commissioner S. I.

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 Schools. 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 statement: The Nebraska Fire commission, whose business it Is to do everything possible for the prevention of fire waste desires to direct public atten tion to the necessity of a general cleanup during the spring time. De bris that has accumulated during the winter months should be thoroughly cleared away. The reasons for this are obvious, one which might be men tioned is that this debris is often re sponsible for spontaneous combustion, which, more prevalent during the hot summer months than during the cold er period. Is generally regarded by ex perienced fire fighters as one of the chief causes of what are called "un known fires." Too often houses are built without giving proper consideration to attic ventilation; the hot summer sun beats on the roof, the heat in the -attic be comes intense and with the attic filled with rubbish, dust, oily rags, highly varnished pieces of furniture or other accumulations spontaneous combus tion is a natural result Closets are often used for storing away greasy overalls, old clothes and oily rags, such closets should be thor oughly cleaned and this is particularly true of the closet under the stairway. which is too often permitted to be come a fire trap immediately under the only way of escape from the upper stories of the building. This Is the season for varnishing and painting, hence old rags used for wiping greasy wood and varnished sur faces should be burned; If they must be saved for future use they should be kept in an Iron receptacle substan tially covered and set away from the wood buildings. Paint and oily rags, varnish and waste, used to wipe machinery are particularly liable to spontaneous com bustion. We desire to suggest that when peo ple are removing thair stoves for the summer months. If they would be care ful to see that the hole in the chim ney was stopped with a metal thimble and not with paper or rags it would prevent a great many fires. New Fraternal Organization. The Clansmen of America, of Omaha, a new fraternal organization, has been licensed to do business in this state. The rates of the new com pany are not up to the fraternal con gress standard and consequently did not meet with the approval of the au ditor. Nevertheless, under the insur ance law a license must be issued when 250 applications have been signed, no matter what the rates may be. Money for Soldiers' Homes. Governor Sha'.lenberger received from the government warrants for $9, 175 for the use of the two soldiers' homes. The money is apportioned at the rate of $100 for each member of the home. At Grand Island there are 255 members and at Milford 112. Missouri Pacific Loses. Maggie Wollenburg. who won a damage suit against the Missouri Pa cific in the district court of Douglas county, after having been tossed some sixty-five feet by an engine, won out also in the supreme court Cost of Life Insurance. Figured on the basis of the vote cast in 1908. every man in Nebraska who has attained his majority spent $13.70 for life insurance last year. This rep resents an Increase over the preceding year. New Lieutenant The adjutant general's office has au thorized the election of a second lieu tenant in the Gatling gun section at Beatrice, that section having recently increased its strength to thirty men. Go to Fort Riley. There will be no state camp for the Nebraska national guard this year, ex cepting the rifle teams. All the rest of the guard will be taken to Fort Riley. Adjutant General Hartlgan has refigured the expense of taking the guard, amounting In all to about 1.100 men, and believes that he can send all of the boys to Fort Riley on the $30. 000 that Is available for the purpose. Some of the companies may, however, be left behind unless they are able to show a strength of at least forty three men. Net Like Sample. Superintendent Percival of the Nor folk asylam has notified the state board of public lands and buildings that the coffee delivered to his institu tion by-the H.P.

Model Submitted in Fall. Daniel C. French, who has a con tract to construct the Lincoln monu ment, to be located on the grounds of the state house, has written to F. M. Hall that he will not submit the model mtil next fall. Mr. French said in :1s letter that the model bad been completed, but that he is shortly leav ng for Europe and therefore he de--vires to look over it again before send ng It to Nebraska.

Mr. Smoot came to the assistance of Mr. Bristow in contending for the adoption of the long and short haul amendment, whereupon Mr. Elkins charged that the effect would be to raise rather than decrease local non competitive rates.

Believes Congress Should Grant Re quest for National Ch.ter Would Change Only One Small Detail. 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 philanthropy. "But Mr. Rockefeller has conceived a vast scheme of philanthropy, for the benefit of his fellow citizens and man kind. His character, ability and or, ganlzing skill are adequate guarantees that he will carry out his scheme wisely and successfully, with incal culable benefit and blessing to man Lind. It is in the interest of the na tion that he be given a free band in the exTcise of his colossal benefi cence. So long as he is active or his Influence remains It would be wise 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 civilization. "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, governmental agencies that may fairly be regar-Ied as representing the peo ple of the United States, whose wel fare is the primary object of the im mense and glorious benefaction."

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 since. "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." W. J. FORD. Saving His Life.
