KILLS COUNTY OPTION BILL Legislative Reference Bureau May Be Permanently Established Kill a Liquor Bill Total Appropria tion Bill Now Over a Million. The legislative week beginning Monday promises to be as lively as any that have passed. The senate has put out of the way the two big events of the session, initiative and referendum and county option, and has acted favorably on a Sunday baseball bill. The house has dis posed of none of these measures, but will get into the game this week. Two measures which stand near the top of the list are the initiative and ref erendum and county option. As far as the house is concerned there seems to be no doubt that the house initiative and referendum hjll will go through with but few votes against it. It will then be in order that a conference committee be ap pointed to get together with a like committee of the senate to patch up JOHN A. MOREHEAD. Senator First District and President Pro Tern of Senate. the differences in the bills on this subject in the respective houses. The senate initiative and referendum bill is still in the hands of the house com mittee. It has not been reported out because it would thus complicate the situation. The house has gone on record as to the kind of a bill it will vote for and it is not the senate meas ure. If the house committee recom mends the senate bill it means a complication. If it recommends that the senate bill be killed there will be nothing to compromise on. Thus the reason for holding it up temporarily. County option will be defeated in the house in all probability. It will lack one or two votes of passing, just as the same bill lacked in the senate. The vote is to be had merely to put the members en record, and it is un likely that it will be brought up un less practically a full attendance is on hand. After a two hours' deadlock in the house Tuesday morning the support ers of the amended Hatfield initiative and referendum bill won a complete victory over the opposition and passed their measure by a vote of 75 to 23. This result was not accomplished without the most tense situation seen in the house during the session. Men were corralled in every part of the house by groups of other members, who were pulling them this way and pushing them that way in an effort to persuade them to change their votes. The result was that the supporters of the bill were1 the only ones who se cured changes, the opposition failing signally. The fight is not yet over. After the bill was passed the house, on motion of Gerdes of Richardson, asked the committee on constitutional amend ments to report the senate bill at once and made the consideration of that measure the special order for Wed nesday. Although the house bill has gone to the senate, and although the senate bill was passed in that body with only two amendments of conse quence, the opponents to the bills as they stand, who had strength enough yesterday in the house to block the passage of the Hatfield bill for two hours, will attempt to insert their amendments into the senate bill. The Oklahoma senate defeated a bill authorizing the corjioration com mission to suspend the operation of the "jim crow" law. The insurgents, or as some call them, the wet democrats in the state senate were joined for a time by Ban ning of Cass and Skilcs of Butler, both democrats, who voted against county option, and by a union of dem ocrats and republicans a sifting com mittee was appointed. The standpat and wet democrats, including three senators from Douglas, who were not consulted in regard to the slate, were taken completely by surprise. The committee appointed gavo Ollis of Valley the balance of power. It com prised seven members. The Old Ones Won Out. A proposition to extend the age llirt for eligibility for jury service to men of seventy, occasioned a lot of good natured badinage in the house be tween the gray whiskered patriachs on the one side and the youngsters on the other. Age finally wen out. A Pure Seed Bill. A pure seed bill, house roll 219, has been recommended for passage in the house after a rather beligerent pre sentation of the case by the sponsors of the bill.

That the membres of the house should not become so degenerated as to repeal the anti-smoking clause of their rules cards were being circulated among the representatives giving the result of tests'made by a former physi cal director on smokers and non- a smokers and their respective mental and physical qualifications as shown by the investigation. Although there were few of the lov ers of the weed in the lower house who paid attention to the cards, there were two or three nevertheless who considered that they were a distinct insult on the intelligence of the house. They contended that there was an in timation therein that those who per sisted in the pernicious habit of tak ing occasional drags of pipes and puffs at Havanas did not possess the necessary mental qualifications to either initiate or pass good laws for the commonwealth. To this they ex cepted, and declared that, in their opinions, really bright mentality could not become so smoke befogged as to be incapable of legislative discern ment. The senate has not condescend ed to admit weakness because smok ing i now allowed in its august cham bers. i i Bridge Bill Passed. Cronin of Holt carried to a suc cessful termination his effort to se cure state aid in the construction and maintenance of bridges over streams more than 175 feet in width. It had been anticipated by many members that the bill would never get through on third reading but Cronin was able to count fifty-six votes. The bill pro vides for a state levy of one-fifth of a mill, or approximately $100,000, for the biennium for aid in construction and maintenance of these bridges. Schol for Dependents. IT. R. S4. by Hatfield, a bill to abandon the present state schiol for dependent children, formerly known as the home for the friendless, and to place the children now in the home and those who in the future are com mitted to its care by order of juven ile courts into the care of a board of control to be appointed by the gover nor was committed to the committee on public charities for amendment. Pure Food Legislation. The senate committee on medical societies was surrounded Monday by a crowd of able lawyers and lobbyists who represent manufacturers through out the country. The lobbyists direct ed their talents against II. R. 270. a bill that requires goods in package form to bear the net weight, measure or numerical amount. The committee listened to argument and took the bill under consideration. University Medical College. The senate followed the example o the house and instructed its special committee on university removal to go a little further and dig into the question of the separation or union of the medical college of the university. The instructions to the committee were given by a motion offered by Dr. Talcott of Cedar county, who is a member of the state senate. Legislative Reference Bureau. The legislative reference bureau will be a permanently established state institution if a bill which was recommended for passage by the house committee of the whole be comes a law. The bill creates this bureau and places it under a partial jurisdiction of the board of regents of the university and affiliating the bureau with the department of law and sociology. Salary Appropriation Bill. The house has completed considera tion of the salary appropriation bill and ordered it engrossed for third reading. Another 3,000 increase was added to it, making in all a total raise of ?44,100 over the bill as originally introduced which was larger by more than $100,000 than the bill two years ago. The total of the bill has nor reached $1,176,040. Defeat of County Option. Every member of the house who voted on the county option bill when it came up for third reading stayed by his pre-election pledge, without a single exception. But two members were absent. Regan of Platte and San born of Sarpy, both of whom were pledged against the enactment of county option legislation. The house passed bills all Monday afternoon with ninety members pres ent. It killed the Moody pool hall bill and the Grcssmann wage exemption bill, and saved the life of the initiative and referendum bill only through a hasty adjournment. An agreement was made by forty-one members to vote against the house bill, and to try to amend the senate bill when it comes up in the same manner that the same men had failed on the house bill two weeks ago. Lien for Attorneys. The senate passed S. F. 143. by Tibbets. a bill to give attorneys a lien upon documents, money or property of clients coming into their hands or in the hands of an adverse party for services performed on con tract, cither express r implied. Two bills restricting the liquor traffic more than is done now under the Slocumb law came up before the house Friday. One was killed, the other was rushed on to third read ing.

CONCEDES SPLENDID RECORD Chief Executive Says the Sixty-First Gathering Done More Than Any Assembly Since Civil War. Atlanta. Ga. President Taft in a speech before the closing session of the Southern Commercial congress made a plea to the young men of the new south to take up the political is sues of the day from a broad and liberal standpoint and to eliminate from consideration all narrow parti sanship and sectionalism. The president reviewed the accomp lishments of the Sixty-first congress declaring that in its three sessions it had enacted more helpful legislation than any congress since the civil war. Mr. Taft asserted that the greatest accomplishment of the short session, which ended March 4, was the ratification of the Japanese treaty. The greatest disappointment, he said, was the failure of congress to ratify the reciprocity agreement with Canada. In this connection he referred to his action in calling an extra session of congress to convene on April 4. "My opinion is," said Mr. Taft. "that a majority of both houses dis regarding party lines, will seize a great national opportunity and promptly ratify the agreement before proceeding to other busjness." Here the president paused for a moment. Evidently he turned over in his mind the democratic statement that several of the schedules would be considered at the extra session. "ir." he added significantly, "it be deemed wise or necessary to proceed to other business." In the hope, perhaps, that tariff leg islation may be avoided at the extra session, the president pledged him self to furnish to the democratic house at its regular meeting in De cember a report from the tariff com mission on schedule "IC" of the Payne-Aldrich act the wool and wol lens schedule. The president contin ued: development of this country in the last twenty years has been so great that the statistics startle us. An examination shows that proportion ately the commercial and business growth of the south is greater than that of any other part of the country. "With the coming of prosperity, with the resumption of comfort in f J their lives, with a growing sympathy on the part or the north in their working out of the serious problems confronting them, and with the sense of triumph in their success in ofer coming their great difficulties, the southern people have mellowed. The northern people have met them half way and never in the history of the country have the two sections been so fondly and so near, in such com plete union as they are today." FOR COMMISSION PLAN. Colonel Roosevelt Speaks in Favor of Same. Birmingham. Ala. Approval of the commission form of government in municipal affairs characterized Col. Theodore Roosevelt's address Friday to the citizens of Birmingham, who are about to experiment with the commission system. "You are the first city of the size," he said, that has introduced the com- j mission system in your municipal af fairs. Now I believe in the commis sion system and I am glad you arc going to try the experiment. You are going to try an experiment, which 1 think is fraught with infinite promise for good."

Creel, minister of foreign affairs, authorized Francisco de la Barra. Mexican ambassador at Washington, to make. Railroad Loses Money. Ios Algnees. Cal. That the Atchi son. Topeka & Santa Fe railway loses an average of $10.08 on every car of lemons it hauls east at the rate of $1 a hundred, the rate fixed by the in terstate commerce commission, was the assertion of railroad witnesses be fore the new commerce court. Col. Bolton Believes. Omaha. Colonel Edwin B. Bolton of the Fourth infantry, now stationed at Fort Crook, retired from active service at his own request Friday. He has been on leave for some time. He is to be succeeded by Lieutenant Colonel McClure. WILL RESENT INTERVENTION. Senor La Barra Makes Mexico's Posi tion Clear. Washington.

HEAD SOLID MASS OF HUMOR "I think the Cutlcura Remedies are the best remedies for eczema I have ever heard of. My mother had a child who had a rash on Its head when it was real young. Doctor called it baby rash. He gave us medicine, but It did no good. In a few days the head was a solid mass; a running sore. It was awful, the child cried continually. Wo had to hold him and watch him to keep him from scratching- the sore. His suffering was dreadful. At last we remembered Cutlcura Reme dies. We got a dollar bottle of Cutl cura Resolvent, a box of Cutlcura Ointment, and a bar of Cutlcura Soap. We gave tho Resolvent as directed, washed tho head with the Cutlcura Soap, and applied the Cutlcura Oint ment. We had not used half before the child's head was clear and free from eczema, and it has never come back again. His head was healthy and he had a beautiful head of hair. I think the Cutlcura Ointment very good for the hair. It makes the hair grow and prevents falling hair." (Signed) Mrs. Francis Lund. Plain City. Utah, Sept. 19, 1910.

In the New York courts recently a girl, aged 17, on being told by her mother that she was old enough to go to work, replied: "Work. I will not; I prefer to marry." Whereupon she was married before night to a young man earning $8 per week. That is of a piece with the reasoning of another girl who, being interro gated by a friend. "Where are you working now. Mamie?" answered promptly, "I ain't working; I'm mar ried." Boston Herald. THE YOUNG BRIDE'S FIRST DISCOVERY Tlieir wctMing tour had ended, and they entered their new home to eettlr down to what they hoped to be one lonk uninterrupted blissful honeymoon. But. alas! the youni bride's troubles eoon begin, when she tried to reduce the cost of living with cheap big can baking powders. She soon discovered that all she got was a lot for her money, and it was not all bakinjr powder, for the bulk of it was cheap materials which had no leavening power. Such powders will not make light, wholesome food. And because of the ab sence of leavening gns, it requires from two or three time- as much to raise cakes or biscuits as it does of Calumet Baking Powder. Thu. eventually. the actual cost to you, of cheap liakincc powders, is mora th.in Calumet would be. Cheap Iwkinp powders often leav the bread bleached and acid, sometimes yel low and alkaline, and often unpalatable. They are not always of uniform strength and quality. Now the bride buvs Calumet the per fectly wholesome baking powder, moder ate in price, and always uniform and re liable. Calumet keeps indefinitely, makes cookinjr easy, and is certainly the most economical after all. Take This to Heart.
