SIX MEMBERS WERE ABSENT Some of the Provisions of the Meas ureOther Matters Being Con sidered in Both Houses. Without a dissecting vote the initi ative and referendum bill, S. F. No. 1, introduced by Skiles of Butler, was passed by the senate and has now gone to the house for the approval of that branch of the legislature. Ev ery one of the twenty-six senators present voted for the measure. Six members of the senate, Albert of Platte, Hoagland of Lincoln, Kemp of Dawes and Tibbets of Adams were absent on committee work in Omaha. Placek of Saunders county was the seventh senator absent. The bill as amended in the senate provides for a 10 per cent petition to initiate and a 5 per cent petition to refer. The same provisions in the bill as to the initiative and referen dum applies to the constitution and to laws. Straight party votes are not to be counted 'for or against propositions submitted under the terms of the bill. A majority of the votes cast at an election is all that is necessary to carry a proposition submitted under the bill, provided a proposition receives 35 per cent of the total vote cast at the election. While no senator voted against the bill, Jansen of Gage and Varner of Johnson, said the measure did not meet their approval. Mr. Jansen said: While this measure does not meet with my full approval, opening In my opinion, the floodgates for obnoxious and unnecessary law-making, still obeying the demand of my constitu ents and the platform of the grand old republican party, I vote aye. Mr. Varner said that, while the bill has been much improved by the last amendment by its author, be was still opposed to some of the provisions of the bill and believed that Its enact ment as a part of the constitution, in Its present form, will prove of great er burden than benefit to the great masses of the people of the state.

Permission to do this was granted by the house. Indians on the reservation are possessors of consid erable property, and the proper ad- ministration or it in tne case oi aeaa i 1 Indians is in something of a tangle, j THE SENATE TO ACT. Reciprocity Resolution Soon to Be Considered. The Nebraska senate will take its turn at giving; an opinion upon Ca nadian reciprocity and will consider a resolution in favor of the treatyy offered by Jansen of Gage. The reso lution of Colton against the treaty was defeated in the house last week, and the republicans in the senate will try to get through an affirmative measure in support of President Taft. Senator Jansen said that he believes that the resolution will go through without much opposition. It was not taken up when offered because it was objected to by Reagan of Douglas, and, under the rules, goes over for one day. It reads as fol lows. "Whereas, There Is now pending for ratification by our national con gress a trade agreement between Can ada and the United States, establish ing reciprocity between these coun tries, and, "Whereas, We firmly believe that such reciprocity will result in great benefts to both of these countries, whose interests and people are so closely allied; therefore, be it "Resolved, That the state senate of Nebraska, in regular session assem bled, most emphatically indorses the ratification of said trade agreement. and that we ask our senators and representatives in the national con gress to work and vote for this treaty, and be it further "Resolved, That copies of this reso lution be forwarded to our senators and representatives at Washington." The house refused to begin its work upon the initiative and refer endum bill Monday, although it came up in regular order. Hatfield of Ian caster, the author, tried to get it brought to a settlement in the com mittee of the whole, but were unsuc cessful. Prince of Hall and Harring ton of Brown, members of the Omaha investigating committee, had asked that it be put off until they returned, and others thought it ought not to come up until a longer time has been given for consideration. It went back to its place on general file, and it was decided to make it a special order for next Monday afternoon. Is Big Surpjrise. Opposition to the tax ferret bill framed by Representative Quacken bush defeated the measure in the house by 45 to 25.

Legislative Notes. A resolution for the appointment of a rural life commission by the gov ernor was passed in the senate. The soldiers' home committee ex amined the institutions at Milford and Grand Island. The stockyards bills promise much activity for and against. Taylor's bill to prohibit coursing meets in Nebraska brought out vigor ous debate and a rather close vote in committee of the whole. It was rec ommended for passage. Representative Bassett went home t to Buffalo county to tell the people' why he voted against the Capital re moval bill. Hoagland's bill providing submis sion of an amendment attaching the recall proposition to the constitution was recommitted in Hoagland's ab sence attending the Omaha investiga tion. Senator Ollis will introduce a pub lic warehouse and grain inspection bill. It is a copy of the bill he had before the senate two years ago, one which met with opposition from old line elevator companies. Twenty-one new bills in the senate and fifteen in the house were added on Monday. South Dakota Has Request. A resolution, adopted by the legis lature of South Dakota, was read be fore the house and senate, in which this state is asked to provide funds for the preservation and decoration of the battlefield of White Stone Hill, where, on September 3. 1863, a part of the Second Nebraska cavalry was engaged.

This amendment was beaten, 11 to 7, in committee of the whole. Prisoners May Go Free. It Is not impossible that those men who are now in the penitentiary for burglary who were convicted under the law known as senate file No. 150, during the 1905 session of the legisla ture, will go free. The law appears to be unconstitutional, because only one house acted on a material amend ment to it. The bill was introduced in the senate by B. F. Thomas. It passed the senate and was sent to the house. There it was amended. It now ap pears that the senate never con curred in house amendments. Ruling on Lobbyists. In reply to an inquiry from Senator F. W. Bartos, the attorney general's department has filed an opinion in which it is held that any person who appears before the committee or at tempts in any way to influence legis lation and who is paid Cor such work must register as a lobbyist. Under this ruling it appears that every one must register if he is paid for his ser vices as lobbyist, unless he is a duly accredited agent of a county, city, town. villaee. nubile board or nubile institution. HALT IN THE HE CONGRESSMAN MANN ENGINEER? A FILIBUSTER. PREVENTS ACTION DLL DM Long Session Held But Nothing Don by Reason of Parliamentary Tactics. Washington With only eleven leg islative days remaining, the house o! representatives was held at a stand still Friday by a filibuster planned and conducted by Representative Mann of Illinois. It was private calendar under the rules and business in order was the the consideration of the omnibus wax claims bill, which already had been passeil by the senate. The bill large ly affects southern claimants and the democrats with the assistance oi many republicans, endeavored tc pass it. At times the maioritv in favor of 'the bill was as high as 140. but Rep resentative Mann was opposed to the bill and by dilatory tactics succeed ed In preventing action, although the house was in session from 10 o'clock Friday morning until 9:25 o'clock at night. At that hour the advocates of the measure secured a recess until 11 o'clock Saturday under the as sumption that the legislative sitting of Friday would be resumed. It de veloped after this action, however, that they probably defeated their own purpose for 11 o'clock now is the regular hour for meeting, and it is be lieved Speaker Cannon will hold tnat Saturday's sitting is a new legislative day. If he is successful in maintain ing this ruling the omnibus bill is dead for this session of congress. The filibuster, largely a one-man affair, was one of the most remark able in the history of the house. At one time, in order to secure a quo rum, the sergeant-at-arms was direct ed to arrest all absentees. With as. sistants that official started in pursuit of the missing members but before any arrests were made enough drift ed into the chamber to make a quo rum and further proceedings under the order were dispensed with. While waiting for a quorum the house was in much disorder. It was good natured, however, and there was continued laughter. Representative Mann during the day had resorted to every known parliamentary subter fuge to prevent action and the mem bers at times were much confused as to just where they stood. While waiting for a quorum Repre sentative Rucker of Missouri wanted to make a speech. Mr. Mann made the point of order that speeches were out of order in the absence of a quorum. The chair sustained the point. The fight over the omnibus claims bill probably will be renewed Satur day and if its advocates can hold the majority they mastered Friday there is likely either to be an overruling of the speaker or another fillibuster.

Ont The continued talk of J annexation, kept alive by the opposi tion journals, is causing resentment in Canada, and. according to some of the leading supporters of the govern ment, may jeopardize the reciprocity measure now before Parliament While the liberals have accepted the message of President Taft to Rep resentative McCall as the true senti ment of the Washington administra tion, the wave of feeding that has been felt in the dominion cannot be ignored and it is understood that Sir Wilfrid Laurier early next week will make a statement that will set at rest forever the idea that the annexation of Canada by the United Is possible.

The influence of heredity cannot, of course, be successfully disputed, but it can be minimized or entirely over come in some cases by correct food and drink. A Conn. lady says: "For years while I was a coffee drinker I suffered from bilious at tacks of great severity, from which I used to emerge as white as a ghost and very weak. Our family physi cian gave me various prescriptions for improving the digestion and stimulat ing the liver, which I tried faithfully but without perceptible result. "He was acquainted with my fam ily history for several generations 'lack, and once when I visited him he said: If you have inherited one of those torpid livers you may always suffer more or less from its inaction. We can't dodge our Inheritance, you know.' "I was not so strong a believer la heredity as he was, however, and, be ginning to think for myself, I conclud ed to stop drinking coffee, and see what effect that would have. I feared it would be a severe trial to give it up, but when I took Postum and had It well made, it completely filled my need for a hot beverage and I grew very fond of it "I have used Postum for three years, using no medicine.
