With county seat relocation fights
at various stages of progress in sev
eral counties, four bills have been in
troduced in the house of representa
tives looking to the settling of these
affairs under different laws than those
existing at the present time.
Nine counties have prospective re
moval fights on, each of them varying
from the others only in the degree of
intensity and activity with which the
present county seats are being as
sailed. The warmest fight is probably in
Franklin county, where the city of
Franklin is seeking to take the hon
ors bodily from Bloomington. The
matter was voted upon at the last
election in a test vote proposition on
the advisability of building a new
court house. Litle was gained there
from, however, and the matter is in
practically the same condition as be
fore election, the bond proposition be
ing decisively defeated at that f s.
Governor's Maintenance.
The v house started to play a little J
politics when the general maintenance
bill was up for consideration and the
item for the board of governor's ser
vants and immediate family was being
discussed. Ten democrats voted with
the republicans to retain the item in
the bill, although this is the first time
such an item has ever api cared in u
general maintenance bill.
Plenty of Work Left.
Just what will be done about a sift
ing committee in the bouse is a matter
of conjecture. Most of the members
who have been heard to express them
selves about it believe it is still too
early to begin operation under the con
trol of this committee. In fact, a sift
ing committee will not be appointed
until it is absolutely necessary, or un
til a majority of members give up
hopes of reaching their bills -in the
general order of business.
Protects Poo Drinkers.
Bodison of Kearney made his ini
tial speech by moving that S. F. 2S5
be ordered engrossed for third read
ing. He introduced the bill, and it
speaks for itself. It declares it to be
a misdemeanor for any manufacturer
to sell pop or other non-alccholic
drinks containing saccharine or coal
tar sweeteners.
Talcott explained that the bill
would hit some manufacturers who are
underselling others by usinr a Hirnn
er sweetener. It was c:Jc:d en
grossed for third reading.
Warden Salary
S. F. 29C. by Brown, a bill to In-
'crease the salary of the warden of
the penitentiary from $1,500 to $2,000
for the purpose of making up the loss
of $4S0 salary as postmaster, had a
close call. It failed to pass with the
emeigency clause and was placed up
on its passage without the emergency
clause. Talcott and Volpp changed
from nay to aye and Horton who had
been out cf the room returned and
voted for the bill, making a total of IS
ayes and 11 nays.

Apportionment Biluu
The apportionment bills which are
to be reported as now prepared in tho
senate will probably be reported in
the house also, although the members
of the house committee are much mys
tified at the situation. The senate
bill was Axed up by the aid of demo
cratic house members, but the republi
can members have been frequently
consulted. The efforts to hold meet
ings of the house committee have not
been successful. Chairman Regan
claims to know nothing concerning
the bills, and says that the house
must still do its work. He is not
calling meetings, and it now looks as
if the house would be asked to accept
the senate bills on senatorial appor
tionment as well as the senate bills
on judicial and congressional appor
tionment. The house bills did not
cover the latter two redisricting
Is It a Railroad Commission?
' eagic eye oi aecrcuiry oi suue
i ait discovered that H. R. 33, signed
by the governor and sent to the office
of the secretary of state refers to the
state "railroad commission." The of
ficial name of the commission intended
to be mentioned by the framers of the
bill is the "railway commission." The
bill in question requires railroads to
I use standard sized cabooses. It is not
believed the incorrect name of the
! commission mentioned in the bill will
have any effect on the validity of the
measure. For seme reason the mem
bers of the commission object to being
called a Vail road commission. To some
this term conveys a different idea than
the term railway commission.
All for Stockyards Bill.
The house passed the Taylor stock-
vnrilR lii II nc nmonftail jiml n nff-rantofl
by the house several days ago. One
j vote only, McKelvie or Lancaster, was
' cast against the measure. There is
' openly voiced suspicion against the
' bill in the house because the Douglas
I county delegation volcd for it. It is
even said that a motion will soon be
made to set a day for the considera
tion of the Ollis bill and that this bill
will also be passed through the house.
The fear is that with the sifting com
mittee appointed in the senate the
Taylor bill will be allowed to die in the
committee arid no stockyards legisla
tion be secured.
The White Slave Bill.
Without indulging in debate and
without the slightest opposition the
senate recommended for third read
ing Senator 1 1 or ton's bill prohibiting
and providing severe penalties for en
gaging in the "white slave" traffic. A
procurer, under this bill is liable on
a first conviction for a county jail sen
tence from six months to a year or a
fine up to $1,000, and on a second of
fense a penitentiary sentence of from
three to ten years is provided.
Only Bill Recommended.
The Smith bill, the one that so far
has met with the approval of the
standing committee of the house, elim
inates entirely the ten year provisions
of the present county seat law. Other
wise there is no change between it
and the present statute. It meets the
exigencies of the occasion by leaving
the relocation open to all the towns
in a county without favoring county
seats which now have the advantage
of the ten year clause.
Democratic Joint Caucus.
A short joint caucus of the house
and senate democrats was held at the
Lincoln hotel. Reapportionment was
the main subject under discussion al
though other party pledges were
talked over informally. The possibili
ty of instilling more harmony into the
rest of the legislative session was
touched upon in a casual way. none of
the speakers however evincing a de
sire to go at the matter.
Capital Removalists Cautious.
The failure of the capital removal
promoters, Bailey of Buffalo and Sink
of Hall, to make any move for the ad
vancement of their bill. H. R. No. 3S2.
is responsible for the impression that
they are afraid to have it reach a vote
at this time. Bailey and Sink could
have the solid support of the Lancas
ter delegation if they would ask to
have the bill advanced for consider
ation. Talcott's Ventilation Bill.
Chief in importance among the bills
so far passed by the senate was .Tal
cott's bill providing for the proper san
itation and ventilation of factories
The bill also provides for guarding
dangerous machinery.
The Skiles initiative and referendum
bill as amended by the house, went
through without a negative vote, ex
cept that of Lawrence of Dodge, whe
later changed his vote to the affirma
tive. The bridge bill introduced by Ban
ning and Skiles. S. F. 272. as amend
ed by the bridge committee, was en
dorsed by the committee of the
whole. The introducers of the bill ex
plained that it was intended to break
the back of the bridge combine.
Governor Sends Message.
In a message to the house Thurs
day afternoon Governor Aldrich called
the attention of the representatives
to the fact that there were defects in
several of the measure which had
reached his desk for approval.
The senate In committee of the
whole indefinitely postponed S. F. 1SS.
by Tanner and then when the commit
tee arose the action was overturned
by a vote of seventeen to thirteen and
t'-o bill was ordered engrosed for a
third reading.
Newspaper Spoils.
S. F. 297, by Tibbets. relating to the
j publication of 'proceedings of county
i boards, was indefinitely postponed to
make way for S. F. 32.., by Tanner, a
. bill to authorize county boards to des-
' ignite two newspapers of two differ-
( cnt political parties, having the
' largest circulation of any such bipar-
tisan papers in the county, to publish
the proceedings of county boards, each
paper to tak half the legal rate for

Carter's Division to Be Ready in Two
Hours if Word Comes from
National Capital.
San Antonio. Tex. Orders have
been recehed here from Washington
that General Carter's maneuver divi
sion shall hold itself in readiness to
break camp and take the field as if
for actual warfare within two hours.
The order caused much comment, for
the particular reason that it did not
ccme iu the general maneuvers orders
issued by General Carter but from the
seat of the government.
Such an order means a blanket, teu
days rations, shelter tents. 200 rounds
of ammunition, etc.
The order to be in readiness for
operations in the field, while it might
be a legitimate feature of maneuvers,
is not taken in that sense.
Excepting the generals, to whom
long years have taught conservatism,
every one rejected the maneuver
theory, but could not explain where
war was to be expected. One officer
of prominence said he hoped Mexico
and the United States would not be
come embroiled.
"We would defeat Mexico and there
would be no lesson learned. The un
thinking in congress would have an
other object to point to, to show that
we can depend on the volunteers in
an emergency. We can after we have
lost To per cent to teach the remain
ing 25 per cent how to fight.
"A strong lesson is needed. Japan
or Germany would serve preferably
the former, because of her geographic
al 'situation. They are quite capable
of attacking us. with their perfect pre
paredness, whenever ready. We hae
spent ten days in turmoil gathering a
handful of men in Texas. Ultimately
we should triumph, but the ultimate
cost would be appalling. It would be
much cheaper, even in money, let
alone lives, to treble our force, than
to take such a lesson, considering the
resultant pension rolls alone."
Officers cannot be quoted for publi
cation where criticism of superiors is
involved, or to be inferred, but the
man who made the foregoing state
ment has a reputation which extends
beyond the army.
Mrs. Davis Convicted of Killing Her
Hartington. Neb. A verdict of
murder in the first degree with im
prisonment for life was returned by
the jury in the case of Mrs. Maggie
Davis, accused slayer of Ira Church
ill. Mrs. Davis Killed Ira Churchill
while he was milking a cow on his
farm home near Coleridge. Neb..
Nov. 21 last. Her defense was in
sanity. It was alleged that Church

had "turned her down" and married
another woman.
Indications Are That They Will Not
Be Accepted.
Mexico City. The intention of Fi

to him, in dispatches from New York
of coming to the capital to induce
President Diaz to listen to terms pro

less. Only recently General Diaz an
nounced a plan which was not one
of conciliation but one of relentless

To Report April 1st.
Washington. None of thu officers
of the state militias who are to join
the army in Texas to receive instruc
tions in military maneuvers, are to re
port to the instruction camps before
April 1. Each officer from the militia
will be attached to an officer of corre
sponding grade and from the same
arm of the survice. The War depart

Carter before deciding how many of
ficers from the militia will be allowed
to attend the instruction work at oao
Coal Claims Affected.
Washington. Out of the thousand
odd coal locations in Alaska, which
the government through the general
land office is investigating for fraud.
040, covering more than 102.000 acres
are in volved directly or indirectly in
the indictments returned by grand
juries in Spokane, Tacoaia. Detroit
and Chicago. Although the Ball'nger
pinchot controversy halted th' work
on these claims, the in instigations
were resumed last June. The result
has been the indictment of many participants.
Suicide Deliberately Planned.
Morrill County. A most remarka
ble suicide occurred on the north
side of the river when Georgo C.
Bowman pressed a revolver to the
back of his head and blew his brains
out. The deceased, who was about
CO years of age. lived with his fam
ily on a homestead about six miles
from Bridgeport. He had been suf
fering from trouble which the doc
tors told him was incurable. Some
days before the suicide he told his
wife what he intended to do and how
he proposed to do it. On the day
mentioned he told his wife to leave
the house am! informed her that
she did not it would be worse for
her. Later he ordered his brother
and son out of the room and warned
tneni not to interfere with him. They,
supposing he even then had his re
volver under the bed clothing, obey
ed his commands. After they left
the room he shaved and dressed,
folded the bed clothes and piled
them and the pillows on the floor,
and lying across the bed with his
head over the side, placed the re
volver to the base of his skull and
fired. He had said before this he
would do this so as not to mar his
face. Death resulted instantly.

harness were stolen from the barn
of Percy Jones, who lives about five
and a half miles northeast of Neilgh.

ly destroying it and the contents, in
cluding four other horses. The barn

thief were traced several miles be
fore the traces were mingled with
other tracks and lost.

E. Condra and a number of univer
sity men under the direction of the
state conservation congress. Dr. Con
dra believes that gas of commercial

To Form Poultry Association.
Adams County. As the result of
the agitation for the organization of
a poultry association, a call has been
issued for a meeting of poultry rais
ers in Hastings to perfect such an
organization. Written invitations
were sent to all poultry men in that
portion of Nebraska who had entries
in last year's state poultry show, as
well as the poultry exhibit in connec
