(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. Mar 8 (Special.) William
B. Price of this city, lawyer, prominent
fusion worker, part owner of an oil claim
In Texas and formerly a clerk in the audi
tor's office under John F. Cornell, haa
been appointed by Governor Savage to suc
ceed J. Sterling Morton as member of the
Nebraska commission tor the Louisiana
Purchase exposition. The position carries
with it no compensation. Mr. Price this
afternoon received his commission, which
Is gorgeously adorned with colored ribbon
and great aeals, and is now a full-fledged
commissioner, entitled to all the rights
and privileges of the other members.
Mr. Price was one of the leading men
In the free sliver republican fiarty, and
while still a member of that organization
began an active campaign for the fusion
nomination for state auditor. When the
party disbanded Price sought refuge with
the democrats and haa since been allied
with that party.
Aaaeaaora Meat Collect Statistics.
The supreme court this afternoon gave a
decision sustaining the law which requires
county assessors to gather information for
the State Bureau of Labor and Industrial
Statistics. The act was attacked on two
grounds, one allegation being that It waa
unconstitutional, because it Imposed addi
tional dutiea on the assessors without pro
viding for additional compensation, and the
other being that there were errora in the
title of the bill. The suit waa In the nature
of mandamus proceedings, directed against
Lawrence Ekew of Lancaster county, an
assessor, to compel him to comply with the
law. The opinion was written by Judge
Hastings, who said:
"It is no objection to the 'validity of a
statute Imposing an additional duty on
assessors that no special provision for
their compensation is made.
"The act of 1887." imposing the duties of
labor commissioner on the governor of the
state and providing for the appointment
of a special deputy to assist In discharging
them, Is not in violation of section 26,
article v of the state constitution.
"The amendatory act of 1897 to eectlons
2066 and 2068 of Cobbey'e consolidated
statutes, requiring assessors to procure cer
tain labor statistics, is germane to the pro
visions of the original act and to the re
quirement of the original section."
According to thla decision of the court, it
will be necessary for the assessors through
out the state to gather statistical Informa
tion regarding agriculture, labor and in
dustry in general. The county may employ
1 additional men to do the extra work, but
the work in some way must be done.
