IN THE LEGISLATURE
STILL ON THE FILE.
CARNEGIE BILL FINALLY DEAD
NO HOPE OF RECONSIDERATION
OF PEN8ION PROPOSITION.
Mill Levy Bill and Bill Creating De-
parements Approved by Governor.
Citizenship 8chool and Special
Excepting the bill providing for
Carnegie pensions for tho University
of Nebraska professors, all measures
Introduced in tho state legislature
touching affairs of tho state school
are progressing favorably, Tho mill
levy bill and the JCotouc measure di
viding tho university into soven col
leges have been passed by both
houses and slgnod by the governor.
The bill creating a school of citizen
ship is awaiting action by tho house,
and the special university appropria
tion is in the same fix as regards tho
senate. Tho anti'frat bill -hnB been
reported for passago by tho house,
where it is now on 'general file.
The provision of tho mill levy
proposition and of tho Kotpuc bill
have already been staged at length in
the columns of tho Nebrnskan. Tho
one formally turns over to tho uni
versity treasury tho proceeds of tho
one mill tax assessed on all property
of the state. Tho second measure es
tablishes seven co-ordinate colleges in
the . university, abolishes tho indus
trial college, raises tho Bchools of agri
culture and of engineering to tho rank
of colleges, and legalizes tho teach-
era college and tho graduate college.
Pension Bill Out.
The CaVnegio pension bill is out of
the race beyond rosustlcatlon. Tho
vote of tho house of representatives
which was unfavorable by a vote of
51 to 47 has stood impregnablo and
the supporters of tho measure havo
not been able to re-allgn the votes
so as to justify a further effort to
pass the bill. It had been hoped that
a couple of votes could bo swung to
tho support of tho bill and that on
vote of reconsideration a majority o'
the house would support "the meas
ure. This action wa3 first expected
early last week, just after the bill was
first defeated. Various delays were
occasioned,, bqwover, and when tho
supporters of the bill camo to count
noses late last week t'aey decided that
it Would be vain to try to urge a re
consideration. Tho bill is, therefore,
dead and nothing further can be done
in the way 'of putting Nebraska on
the pension llstt until a, now legisla
ture assembles, two years' from now.'
Tho biU introduced ;by Senator Mil
ler -requesting the university regents
to establish V school of citizenship 1b
still, awaiting the action of the1 hoUse,
Tho rsenate: passed;jthe hill hy a good
margin and-it was sent to thejower
house several, weeks ngo.- Tio're it
has iold-ever since. - There is now
some "doubt whether' or not the meas
ure will i survive tho ruslu incident'
to tup last few. days of tho session;.''
Tne sifting committee of the ,'houge
is 'slashing things right and left in an
effort to present -only the essentially
important bills to tho house for con
sideration by all members. , There- is
some "dlnhger that the citizenship bill
'may bo lost in the shuffle.
'When. the citizenship measure first
came up in, the senate therq' was con
siderable opposition manifest on " tlio
ypar(t of 'certain, newspapers' 'on. tho , re
publican side qt stlie political fence.
These " publications declared' that the
bill was a disguise for a supposedly
vllo and dangerous "Bryan political
factory," which would cducato tho
youth of the state in all sorts of cheap
political intrlcacloB. The supporters
of the bill claim on the other hand
that its boIo purpose is a combination
nnd re-arrangement of courses in the
departments of political science, po
litical economy and American history
to the end that a more symmetrical
Bystom or study may bo offered in
'Soro at Fraternities.
Tho anti-fraternity bill, which pro
vides for tho complete annihilation of
all secret societies in the universi
ties, savo those honorary in their
nature, has been recommended back
to the houso for passago by tho com
mittee to whom it was referred. It-
Is now with the rest of tho bills on
general file in the hands of tho Sifting
committee. "Whether or not it will
be passed back to the house for con
sideration is a matter of doubt.
In caso the sifting committee should
allow the antl-frat measuro to be ar
gued .by tho houso members there
would undoubtedly be a strong anti
fraternity sentiment dcvoloped. Thero
are many members of tho lower houso
of lawmakers Avho aro absolutely op
posed to tho fraternity system. Thero
aro others who have been led to
oppose fraternities at Nebraska on ac
count ot samplo Incidents of foolish
ness and senselessness on tho part
of a few fraternity mon. With this
combination working together in favor
of tho bill, it is certain that it would
receive a good many voles In the
house. Whether or not it would pass
or not Is much in doubt. In any caso
the senate would still have a yoice in

' Strong objections aro being raised
to holding tho annual cadet encamp
ment in Lincoln. That it Was to bo'
held in Lincoln this year was decreed
by the , university senate, 'and at
tho time tho plan was though to bo
perfectly' leasable. But objections
seem to bo arising everywhere. -Not
only do all thomen object to a plan
which would enforce their attendance
at ' classes as well- as camp ' duty,
but all tho officers to a man object' to

Put to a Vote.
Affalrsreached.a crisis last evening
when the projeqt of camping at Lin

homo encampment were requested to
como to right shoulder 'arms. Not a
gun was lifted. AH those in faVor of
camping elBewhero wero requested to
come to right shoulder arms.r - Every
gun was' brought to the shoulder.
Thus the unanimous "vote, of the bat
talion has gone in favor ot locating
this, spring's camp at some point, dis
tant from Lincoln. Whtlb a few points,
have, beon discussed, nothing khas
been done with any authority in looat

probably be pitched. In the light of
tho objections,' however, it is pretty
certain that, It wljl not b looate4 at,
