in circulation affecting the moral
character of the naval officer.

nounced that on instructions from the

Admiral Barry, asking that he submit
his resignation. The resignation,
severing the officer's connection with
the American navy after forty-five
years of active service, was received
and his name was at once stricken
from the list of naval officers. This
act naturally terminated his salary
from the government.
In response to a telegraphic request
Admiral Barry was placed on the re
tired list of the navy on January 14,
several months in advance of the
date on which, he would have retired
by operation of law. His right to seek
voluntary retirement was his privi

action after forty years' active
The secretary of the navy took up
the request with the president and he

ment was forced by a demand that he
retire on account of alleged scan
dalous conduct It was added that
the officers of the cruiser West Vir
ginia, Admiral Barry's flagship, were
not satisfied with the retirement, but
insisted on his resignation.

for a formal statement, meanwhile or

INITIATIVE, AND REFERENDUM
OUTCLASSES ALL ELSE.
AMENDMENTS ARE IN ORDER
Attempts on Measure' Will Not Be Di
rect, but Efforts Will Be
Made to Warp It Out
The fate of the initiative and ref
erendum amendment to the state con
stitution Is fast assuming more im
portance in legislative circles than
any other measure which has yet put
in an appearance or which is likely to
appear. This 'includes even the county
option bill, on the support of which
the last campaign was almost wholly
fought out Fully three-fourths of the
members of both houses are pledged
to the initiative and referendum, per
sonally as well as by their platforms.
The question arises as to just what
kind of a bill they are pledged, and
It is believed that many members who
pledged because of popular pressure
will seek to amend the bills sponsored
by the direct legislation league of Ne
braska in such a way that it friends
will- hardly recognize it. By seeking
to amend the bill no member will con
sider that he is going back on his
pledge to support a constitutional
County option was the chief issue in
the last campaign. No bill has yet ap
peared embodying that principle, al
though at a conference held last week
It was decided that two bills only, one
In the senate and one in the house,
should be introduced, and the form it
shall take was decided upon. These
bills will probably appear this week.
The reason that the initiative and
referendum is rather supplanting
county option in Importance is that
many supporters of the former meas
ure have grave doubts as to whether
they will be able to muster votes
enough to pass it In case of defeat of
this measure it is expected that the
next test of strength will be made
through the initiative and referendum.
Glanders In. Horses.
Dolezal of Saunders has a measure
which seeks to provide payment for
horses afflicted with glanders which
the state veterinarian puts to death as
a preventive of sprcod of the disease,
conceded to be one of the worst which
afflicts domestic animals. He explains
that the people in that part of his dis
trict surrounding Cedar Bluffs are par
ticularly anxious for the passage of
this law because they have felt the
effect of the loss of animals by gland
ers. As explained by Mr. Dolezal, the
disease is just as apt to attack the
horses of poor men as those of wealthy
farmers, and when they are shot by
the deputy veterinarian it leaves tho
owner in deplorable condition. The
author of the bill argues that to ap
propriate $25,000 for the payment of
these horses and mules would work
towards stamping out the dread dls.
ease, as it would be an incentive to
the owner to have his animals exam
ined when he has an ysuspicion that
they are afflicted. He declares that
now there is a tendency to hide the
fact as long as possible.
University Removal Bill.
Practically the first debate of the
session in the house occurred over the
Kirk resolution to appoint a commit
tee from the house to meet a like com
mittee from the senate to investigate
jointly the merits of the minority and
majority reports of the board of re
gents to move the state university to
the state farm. Kirk's resolution has
been awaiting a favorable opportunity
for several days. It was brought up by
its author, and at once Gerdes of
Richardson moved an amendment
His amendment was primarily to pro
test ot the richt of the speaker to apr
point special committees, and second
to separate the investigating commit
tee from the standing committees of
finance and of universities which must
later act on the question of appropria
tions. After considerable debate the
Favors Constitutional Convention.
The judiciary committee of the sen
ate met for the first time Tuesday
afternoon to consider bills. The com
mittee decided to report for passage
S. F. No. 18. by Kemp of Nance, a bill
providing for a convention to revise
the constitution and to submit a new
constitution to a vote of the people
The committee, while favoring this
bill, proposes to favor the submission
of several constitutional amendments.
The constitutional convention is a
proposition that must be submitted
to a vote of the people and if a con
vention Is called its proposed constt
tution must again be submitted to a
vote of the people.
Determined opposition even to In
vestigating the advisability of relocat
ing the state university on the state
farm campus has developed in the
house. When the Kirk resolution
was brought up in the house it was
put over for another day at the re
quest of Gerdes of Richardson, who in
timated that he will have some oppo

IT IS A MISTAKE
Many have the Idea that anything
will sell if advertised strong enough.
This is a great mistake. True, a
few sales might be made by advertis-,
tag an absolutely worthless article
but It is only the article that la;
bought again and again that pays..
An example of the big success of ;
worthy article is the enormous sale!
(that has grown up for Cascarets!
Candy Cathartic. This wonderful ree
ord is the result of great merit sue,
cessfully made known through perV
sistent advertising and the mouth-to!
mouth recommendation given Cas-.
carets by Its friends and users.
Like all great successes, trade pi
rates prey on the unsuspecting pub-
lie, by marketing fake tablets similar
In appearance to Cascarets. Care.
should always be exercised in pur
chasing well advertised goods, espe
cially an article that has a national
sale like Cascarets. Do not allow a
substitute to be palmed off on you.
