It FINANCE REPORT
SPECIAL COMMITTEE APPOINTED
TO MAKE INVESTIGATION.
GOVERNOR ON THE RIGHT TRACK
Frauds Not so Rank as Reported, But
Evils Exist Stock Yards Bill
on General File Students
Must Vote at Horra-
One of the most important matters
undertaken by this session of the
legislature is embodied in a report
made to the house by a special com
mittee appointed to investigate the
subject of the expenditure of state
money. The report of this committee
was accompanied by a set of bills, de
signed to put the financial affairs of
Nebraska upon something like a busi
The bills drafted by the committee
will be pushed to the front and are ex
pected to pass without any serious op
position. In the investigation it
made, in the preparation of its re
port and' in the drafting of the bills
the committee has had the valuable
assistance of State Auditor Barton,
many of the ideas included in the
bills being those which have been in
cubating in his head since he was first
elected two years ago.
Bills approved by governor 10
Bills ready for approval (passed
by both houses) 4
Bills passed by senate (exclusive
of house bills) 57
Bills passed by house (still tinder

Thirty-seven days of the sixty in
which the legislature is supposed to
sit had passed Saturday. Three days
yet remain in which bills may be in
troduced. The house has received
542 bills, the senate 330. In the three
days which still remain it is quite
likely that 150 additional bills will be
turned into the hopper. This will
place the combined number in house
HON. FRED VOLPP
State Senator from Tenth District
and senate well above 1,000. Some of
these are duplications, but the num
ber is inconsiderable.
Out of the S72 bills which have been
introduced only S7 have passed either
house and only 14 have passed both
houses. In the house probably 250
bills have been acted upon by stand
ing committees. Most of them have
gone to general file. The house has
about fifty bills ready for passage,
having been approved in committee of
the whole. The senate is similarly
situated except that its third read
ing list is not overflowing.
On the Right Track.
That Governor Aldrich was misin
formed on the main points in the
charges of election frauds in Omaha;
that he was right in only one or two
minor instances; and that a new reg
istration law should be enacted for
Omaha, are the main findings of the
house committee which investigated
the governor's charges of wholesale
frauds in Omaha at the last election.
The committee made its report to the
house late Tuesday afternoon.
To Increase Officers Salaries.
The senate has placed on third
reading Volpp's bill increasing the
salary of state officers and Tanner's
bill providing for a bipartisan publi
cation of constitutional amendments.
The Voliyi bill, as amended, provides
that the governor shall receive $7,500
a year, the auditor, treasurer and at
torney general. $l."00. and the other
state officers, 3.500 per annum.
"Jim Crow" Bill Dead.
The "Jim Crow" bill introduced by
McKissick of Gage is considered a
dead one before it even starts out of
a standing committee. The bill pro
vides that negroes shall not ride xm
street cars or trains or sit in places of
public entertainment, except in separ
ate compartments, the line of separa
tion to be marked by a sign posted in
a conspicuous place.
"There was never any need of such
a law in Nebraska." said Governor Al
drich. "and there is no danger of it
becoming a law."
State senators' are figuratively
sleeping on their arms, having ac
ceded to the demands of Senator Ollis
for the recommitment of h's disfig
ured stock yards bill, only on condi
tion that the bill be put to a vole
early Friday morning. The cause of
the complex condition was the call of
the house. Jansen and Placek were
absent and conld not return until
Friday. Under this call the senate
was threatened with the unailuring
prospect of eating supper and break
fast in the senate or going without,
and of sleeping on the uninviting red
rarnpt. or in the cramned chairs.

Students Must Vote at Home.
After spirited discussion the senate
has placed Volpp's bill on the list for
third reading which provides for the
disfranchisement of students in the
school town if they receive any or all
of their support from home. The bill
is aimed especially at the university
students who, according to Senator
Tibbetts, are able to control the pol
icy of Lincoln. It was pointed out
that the bill was making demands on
students which are not made on
"bums" and that by inference the sen
ate was declaring the students less in
telligent and less able to wield the
ballot than the veriest rag-picker on
the streets. The friends of the bill
denied this. Those voting for the bill
were Albert, Banning. Bartling, Buhr
mnn, Horton. Jansen, Kohl, Morehead.
Pickens, Placek, Reagan, Smith of
Boone, Talcott. Tanner. Tibbets,
Volpp, Wilcox. Those voting against
the bill were: Bodinson. Brown. Cod

Oilis, Reynolds, Selleck. Skiles. Smith
of Filmore, Varner.
For a Hotel Commission.
The committee on miscellaneous
subjects of the house, at a meeting
Monday night, discussed the compro
mise hotel bill agreed upon by repre
sentatives of the Nebraska travelers'
association and the hotel keepers'
association, and it was reported after
the meeting that the report thereon
would be favorable to its passage. The
new measure embodies changes in
the law agreed upon at a conference
held by hotel men and travelers at
Omaha on January 30.
The bill provides for the establish
ment of a hotel commission in this
state, making the governor the hotel
commissioner and placing upon him
the duty of seeing that the law is en
forced. He is required to appoint a
deputy hotel commissioner, who shall
be paid $l,S0O a year, and the deputy
may employ one stenographer at a
salary of $70 a month. The deputy
will hold office at the pleasure of the
The Governor's Staff.
The military committee of the house
has introduced II. R. i03. an act pro
viding that "colonels" on the gover
nor's staff shall be chosen from the ac
tive list of the officers of the Nebras
ka national guard. The staff officers
shall be detailed for staff duty for
i such periods of service as the gover
nor may on orders designate.
officers so detailed are to be given the
rank of colonel by reason of such ap
pointment. They shall be given no
greater rank than that to which they
are entitled by virtue of their commis
sions in the guard and while on duty
as aides-de-camp shall serve without
pay in times cf peace. The same bill
provides that no one under eighteen
i years shall be enlisted in the guard,
and in time of peace no one under
twenty-one years shall be enlisted
without the written consent of parents
Some Free Gifts Excepted.
S. F. 51. by Bartling. to prohibit free
gift enterprises with the exception of
free gifts by manufacturers who place
their gifts in sealed packages, also ex
cepting retail merchants who sell or
iginal packages containing free gifts
offered by newspapers in subscription
contests, was reported back by a com
mittee for the purjiose of having it
' stricken out. Senator Bartling. intro
ducer of the bill, said the amendment
by Horton making the exceptions is
still in the bill. The retail dealers'
association of Nebraska does not want
the exceptions in the bill. The meas
ure was introduced for the purpose
of striking at all free gift enterprises,
including trading stamps.
Stock Yards Bill on General File.
In spite of an adverse report from
the committee on live stock and graz
ing, the house placed the stock yards
regulation bill on general file. The
committee has held several hearings
on the bill and sent a sub-committee
to South Omaha to investigate stock
yards conditions. It reported the bill
to be indefinitely postponed.
Senators May Smoke.
By a standing vote, in which there
were only four negative votes, the
senate has suspended rule ."4. which
prohibited smoking except during com
mittee of the whole. Now senators
may smoke all the time if they wish.
Must Vote at Home.
The senate passed Senator Volpp's
bill prohibiting students from voting
in the city to which they have come
for an education if they are supported
in whole or in part by funds from the
parental home. The vote was IS tc

Pains of the Postoffice department
for the establishment of a parcels
post as an experiment were defeated

to put into effect the proposed systerr

There will be no congressional re
apportionment by the Sixty-first con
gress. This was decided at 2 o'clock
The reapportionment bill fixing the
number of representatives at 433
which passed the house earlier in the
session, had for various reasons beer
allowed to remain in the senate com
mittee on census until Friday, when
in the absence of Chairman La Fol
lette. Senator Hale sought to have it
reported for action before the final
adjournment of congress. According
ly the committee was polled and the
measure placed in the hands of Sen
ator Hale for presentation to the sen
ate. At 2 o'clock Mr. Hale was busily
engaged in conferences pertaining to
appropriation bills and up to that
time had not made his report.
In the meantime opposition to the
house basis of apportionment had
arisen in the senate and several sen
ators privately expressed themselves
as opposed to action during the pres
ent session. Among them was Sena
tor Root, who took the position that
the house membership should not be
increased, me opposition was so ae
cided as to render it impossible for
the bill to get through.
Among important business transact
ed by expiring congress is the follow
ing: Senate refuses to seat Lori
mer. Direct election of senators de
feated. Between ::.",n00 and 45,000

Testing Seed Corn.
The majority of wide-awake corn
growers realize the advantage of
testing the germination of their seed
corn before planting. The "ear to
row" method ot improving corn has
emphasized the need of selecting
seed corn on the ear. Although the
apparatus required for testing the
germination of ear corn need not he
expensive, still -it is believed that
there are many who hestiate to un
dertake this work through fear that
it will involve the expenditure of
much time and labor. To satisfy this
demand and to arouse a greater in
terest in corn improvement, the Ne
braska Seed Laboratory has arrang
ed to make single car germination
tests of seed corn for Nebraska
farmers. Not more than 50 such
tests, however, can be made for one
person. If you wish your seed corn
tested write us to that effect and we
will send you 50 small envelopes in
which the samples can be sent to this
laboratory. Let us know at once if
you wish us to make this test Ad
