LINCOLN, Jan. 17. (Special .) Lincoln
It a deserted city today, io far aa legla
latora are concerned. Nearly all the mem
bara have hod home, bo'th houses having
adjourned Friday until Monday, the week
Just closed, which la the seconc" of the eva
sion, waa an extremely busy one and the
Indlcatlona are that next wecK will be still
mora to. A great deal of real work al
ready baa been done and the foundation
laid for a long, ateady grind. In the house
145 bllla hare been Introduced and In the
eenste flff.y-slx. Those meaturea. many of
tham, have been given their aecond reading
and art being placed In the hands of th?
committees, which will get doan to work
Immediately and by next week have some
of the bllla back In the houses whero they
originated, (or further dlapoHltlon.
Old members of the legislature and vet
erans cf the lobbies whj have watched the
workings of many Nebraska legislatures
ay none ever showed greater business
ymptomt at the outset than the present
one. Apparently there la no disposition on
the part of any to prolong and put off what
can be done "now," but the prevailing sen
tlment evidently Is to facllltato the ma
chinery of lawmaking to every possible de
Thla waa manifest In both house and sen
ate Friday when the matter of adjourning
waa taken up. It required several different
motions and a lot of parliamentary spar
ring to fix the time, there being such a de
termined spirit of industry prevalent In
each body. A large contingent In each
noune wanted to hold a session Saturday
and then meet Monday morning, and In the
lower body especially this movement camo
very near carrying, but It wne finally shown
that the stage of proceedings did not war
rant that aa. the most feasible plan, and
adjournment until Monday, with no sessions
Saturday, waa taken
Speaker Mockett aald today that he
looked for a tireless week beginning Mon
- day and thought the house would be l:i
session every day.
"The preliminary work hie been so facil
itated." he aald. "that the committees will
be enabled to handle the bllla with great
dispatch. I look for a business session to
Kiprrti Revenue Legislation.
Speaking of the all-Important, matter of
revenue legislation, Speaker Mockett to
day said: s
"I have no doubt that the "necessary
legislation will be enacted along this line.
I think there is no dlspcaltlcn'or desire to
shirk thla or any other duly. But I am of
the opinion that our greatest need In the
line of amendhig our revenue laws, lie!
In the matter of providing adequate means
cf enforcing our preaent statutes. I do
not know why that would not meet the
demands fully and satisfactorily. I am of
the Impression that our revenue laws at
present are not so bad aa some might
Imagine and I believe the greater number
of those people who are familiar with these
laws will agree with me when I say that
we need a better enforcing clause and not a
f.nmpletely new sot of revenue atatutea.
'.'hero may be some revisions that could
with profit be made. I do not care to speak
t'nally as to that." s '
There has been more or less talk since
the adoption ofvthe Sear resolution slilo
(lacking building appropriation measures
fi r the revenue bill of the futility of such
a move. The position has been taken that
when the matter Comes to a "showdown"
the Bears resolution could not be mac"e
binding on the house, even (hough It was
I ('.opted. In an amended form, by an over'
whelming majority. Tet what the reault
will be remalna to be seen. It certainly Is
a fact, plain enough for anyone to see, that
bucking the Sears resolution Is not going to
be a coveted Job, because of the possible
Mnrkett Expresses Opinion.
Aa Speaker Mockett pointed out Frldav,
his Scars resolution has the effect of
changing the rules of the house. It pro
vides that bIMs carrying appropriations for
new state Inrtltutlnns shall net come to
their th rd reading and be placed upon
their passage until a revenue law shall
have been enacted This Is n plain amend
ment of th! rules. As the resolution was
amended allor.icg a right of way for bills
which provided appropriation for repair
ing or rebuilding state structures. It will
devolve on the speaker to announce each
time, when the order of third reading of
blllj Is reached, 'except bills carrying ap
propriations for new state Institutions."
"And there is where some fun will come
lu," remarked Speaker Morkett today when
being questioned about thla matter.
"It Is not for me to express an opinion
as to the binding effect of this resolution,"
he said, "and elncs It waa adopted by such
a prcnounced majcrlty. and therefore
seemed to meet the utmrst approval of the
members. I would not care to question Its
binding effect in the matter of- changing
the house rules, but I can easily see where
the Issue will arise."

for concolldctlon with the Fairmont cream

assert that the South Platte creamery has
paid out in the past fourteen years to 1L
patrons snd employes over $2, 000,000. A
conservative estimate by dairymen is that
farmers of York county arc not selling over
