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
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
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

them, the wet democrats in the state
senate were joined for a time by Ban

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

house after a rather beligerent pre
sentation of the case by the sponsors
of the bill.

Smoking in tha House.
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-
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.

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."
Colonel Roosevelt Speaks in Favor of
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."
No Concession to Japan.
Mexico City. That Mexico has
granted to Japan no concession for

"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."

Work and Marriage.
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.
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
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
Thu. eventually. the actual cost to
you, of cheap liakincc powders, is mora 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.
