Mr. But !-r mailn an earn out and effective
plea for the farmers of Nchraftfca to Join
force In a determined effort to secure ade
quate protection and preservation of their
Interests against the encroachments of the
elevatcr trust, the grain tnn's enrnblnatlon
and the railroads. He Impressed the Im
perative necessity of cheaper rates, better
shipping facilities and last, elevators
owned and operated by the farmer himself.
Let the farmer be the" producer and aeller
ef his own grain id then he can reap the
profit, was the burden of his plna.
Discussing the Farmers' Co-operative
Shipping association, Mr. Hoffman said:
Jt will be Incorporated jnder the laws of
Knnms with an authorised capital of
tW.f. divided Into 2n,(i shares of 110
eRch. It will build or buy elevators In
Kansaa and adjoining states and territories
to buy grain directly from the farmers
and aell to the best markets, I dividing
profits among the stockholders In the way
of dividends: upon the stock and premiums
upon the grain bought from or sold to
stockholders. Stocks will receive t per
cent dividends from the net earnings after
pnlng such amounts as a wise and con
servative, policy may dictate into the re
serve und betterment fund. The balance
of the net earnings will be divided among
the patrons of the association who are
stockholders. The man who ships 6,ti)
t.tif-hrls of grain through the aoclation
will receive five times as much premiums
on grain aa the shipper of I,"' bushels,
provided he holds a proportionate amount
of stock. The exact method of making
these divisions cannot now be given. Those
detnll will be arranged by the. board of
directors. '
He Endorsement of Lease Dill.
Had the legislature remained In session
this afternoon Governor' Mickey would
bave transmitted to It a communication
on the Dietrich land-leasing; bill, now
pending before the national congress. He
will transmit the document tomorrow. This
comes from the governor's own office.
It Is pretty well understood that the gov
ernor will not any favorable- recom
mendations' for this bill. He will nof. It is
understood, ask the lcflslature to memori
alize, congress to pass the bill, as he has
been "petitioned to do by the Nebraska del
egation In the national -botrse and senate.
His action, therefore,-" It Is safe to predict,
will be satisfactory to the stockmen of
this state who have exerted their energies
to defeat this bill.
Here Is a little siHVoquy which took place
thla morning In Wwi -cloakroom 'adjoining
representative ball .'between two members
of the house,- which may be taken aa a
fair Index of the sentiment' In that body
on this bill as near aa It baa been possi
ble to ootain It;
"Well. I see bv the morning papers that
Secretary Htlchoock has recommended the
passage -by congress of the Dietrich bill.'
"Why, certainly: why shouldn't ha want
his own treasure to pass? But the secre
tary of the Interior must not think that hla
ideas or wishes' constitute any criterion for
tha people or the Iegisltauro. of the state
of Nebraska, where the working out bt the
bill, should if ba enacted Into law, would
take place." ,'.", ,-
Look Into Printing. ''
8wcety of Adams raised quite a, little
stir when be Introduced a resolution in
the bouse this morning authorising the
committer on publio printing to ascertain
tha particulars of the contract for printing
the bouse Journals.
"It seems that no one : knows anything
about, this Important 'matter,'! sa,Ld Mr.
Sweety, "anil sltu'uly took. thlB'tte'ans;.of,
finding uV. ,i- , . .
Mr. Swerzy. thought ' the" llnes-vwere
printed too far apart and that poney Vould
be saved by economising roix rspaeA. Vd

Anderson of .Knox, chairman pf thla 'com
mittee, had thla to say of the matter : -
"I - understand the 'contract .ra.4'. let 'to
the State Journal company by the State
Printing board and that It called for twenty-live
lines to a page at $1.34 a page, with
600 copies of each bill.- I have-not fully
satisfied' myself on this point, but that Is
my understanding at present."
Mr. Sweozy and other members of the
bouse are of the opinion that the bouse
should bare bad the right to make its
own printing contract and proposes to go
Into tbe matter fully. i

McCtay of Lancaster then- moved the
adoption of his resolution of .yesterday,
published In The Dee today, seeking to
place the bouse en record aa favorteg the
assessment of all property at Its full value.
He spoke la support of the. resolution, say
ing the house should adopt it aa a formal
and official criterion to the committee ap
pointed to revise tho revenue laws. In
the course of his remarks Colonel McClay
quoted the state auditor's report to ahow
that the assessment folia of Nebraska bad
undergone a reduction in amount . of
815,000,000 and urged the necessity of
prompt action.
Jonea of Otoe was opposed to adopting '
the resolution as he considered It nntiece-
eary, the houee already being on record
as favoring revenue revision.
This brought to his feet Sweezy of Adams,
who forcibly declared that the. boose was
confronted by this Imperative - duty and
should meet It honestly and fearlessly.
Thompson agreed 'with thla, but saw no
occasion for adopting McClay'e resolution,

Water Works BUI Waa Legally
.. ' Enacted.
(From a Staff Correspondent.) - -LINCOLN.
Jan. 22. (Special.) A ' ques
tion waa raised this morning aa to whether
S. F. 1, passed by tb' senate Tuesday
afternoon, had been invalidated, by tbe
manner in which It waa passed. The bill
waa introduced by. Howell of .Douglas and
Ita intent la to compel the city council
of Omaha to purchase the Omabwater
works. When the bill came up for a third read
ing and final passage Tueaday afternoon
the secretary did not have. the. last page
of the blll.-whlcb oontalned ' three lines.
A recesa of teven minute was, token while
the secretary Jooked up the page.
One member thla morning at a ted that a
receaa taken during tbe third reading of
a bill would invalidate the measure, while
Other hold that It would make' no filffer
ence." The records do not show, that a re
cesa 'waa taken.'' Senator Harrison, who la
an oldtlme legislator, said the recess made
no difference and would not invalidate tbe
bill. "We were slnsply at ease," he said.
"while tbe secretary got the bill togetber,
and the records wlll not show that there
was a recesa taken."
In an opinion of Attorney General Prout,
published in bis report of 1901-1302, he
laid down the aame opinion aa expressed
by Senator Harrison by quoting from tbe
supreme court of Nebraska In the caae of
tbe State against Moore, 37 Neb., 13. The
court said: '.
Where a bill "hfci'been attested by the
signature of the presiding officers of both
branches 01 tne legislature, ana signea oy
the Kovernor. it will not be declared in
valid becaiute of Irregularities In the pro-.
ceedlngs of the legUUtvre 'where no ex-
preaa provision ol the cuuautuuoo Has
been violated. .
Courts will not Inquire -whether the leg
islature, In enacting a law, violated Its
own rules. (McDonald against State, SO
Wle., 407.) . :
While it la possible a-rale of ' the senate
has been violated, the provisions of the
constitution bave been carried. Jout and it
would aeem that ths (car; expressed by
some senators as to the. safety of the mea-
aure, should it become a law and then get
into mo courts, is btowhuicbs..

It was not. Intended to make the newa

arently too good, fox some to keep.
The principal, obstacle for some time
to tbe conclusion of the treaty has been
the price that tne United States was to
pay in tbe shape f of. a cash payment and
by. way of anaus.l, rental for the territory
along each side, of the right-of-way. It
ould not be learned tonight what waa tbe
price finally agreed on.. Some time ago

vorable Report n tllll Passed
by the Hosts,
WASHINGTON. Jan. 22.rrlhe senate
committee on the Philippines today au
thorised a favorable report on the Philip
pines tariff bill, which recently passed th
house, but with Important gmendments.
The house bill carried uniform reduction
ot the tariff on Philippine goods Imported
into the United State, making tbe rate
only 25 per cent of tha rates .Imposed by
the Dlngley law. The senate commute
amended the bill so as to .provide for the
admission of all Philippine-produced
articles free Of duty except sugar and to
bacco,' and on these two commodities fixed
the tariff at CO per cent of the 'Dlngley
schedules. This change was made to meet
the objections of the sugar and tobacco
producers of this country, who have claimed
that, a duty rate of only 25 per cent on
those articles would result in lulnotis com
petition. ' ' ' " '.
The committee also decided to recom
mend an amendment to the hill admitting
Into the Philippines all material used In
the construction and equipment of steam
and electric railroads duty free for the
next five yeara, ' at the discretion of the

A. - B. Btlckney, president of the Great

making la' seven-year contract with the big

Mr. Stlckney'e dc-fense was coupled with
ah' attack' upon the Chicago Live Stock ex
change and MS competitors, classing the
former 'as barnacles and the latter as Ori
ental savages. . '
In bis criticism of tbe Chicago Live Stock
association he declared ' that company;
whose j assets were tew chairs and an
office -desk, collected commissions during
1901 amounting to 13,151,000 against an In
come of 22,451, 256 received by the Union
Stock Yards company: Tbeso commissions
amounted to over 40 per cent of the total
freight charges upon the stock brought
into ' Chicago.
Mr. Tomlinson of the exchange showed
that the commissions collected amounted
to 22.154.286, - while the freight charges
were $14,263,400, about IS per cent Instead
ot 40. In speaking of the 20 per cent con
tract packing house rate made by the Great
Western, Mr. Btlckney declared that aa
soon aa It became known three of his com
petitors, in order to wreck a sort ot Ori
ental vengeance, made a 12-cent rate on
livestock between tbe Missouri river and
Chicago, which left -them a net rate ot between-
7 and 8 oents per 100 pounds for
hauling. the .traffic 600 miles, and which In
jured no one but themselves.
He followed the lead of other ra'.lroad
officials, in asserting that the rates as at
present adjusted favored Chicago, and went
further, by giving figures to prove that the
Missouri river points and St. Paul were
enticed to slaughter about 40 per cent of
al) tbe hogs and : cattle raised In the country,-,,.

A..C. Bird, third, vloe president of the

Railroad Man's Opinion of Live Stock
Charges from Missouri River
to Chicago.
CHICAGO, Jan. 22. Vice President Bird
of the St. Paul road today answered com
plaints of the Chjcago Live Stock exchange
aa to ratea, by declaring that the present
rates tor carrying live animals from Mis
souri, river, points to Chicago are too low
rather than, , too high. "Under present
rates," he said, "live atock does, not bear
Ita share of the general charges."
Mr., Bird's testimony waa given before
tba Interstate Commerce commission. He
thought that without reference to present
competitive, conditions, rales on finished
products should be higher than on live
stock, and he admitted that the. contrary
rule Is In force on the St. Paul road, prlnr
clpally because of the example, set by tbe
Chicago Great Western line last August.
This , example i was followed by moat ot
th western roads and was tbe cause of
