..Sweezy of Adams said tonight he would
introduce resolution in the bouse pro
viding for night sessions for the re-,
tnaloder of the term.
1 Affects Entire Bill.
. The revenue committee, through Its chair
man.. Mr. Warner of Lancaster has given
U out, as was published In The Bee, that
only minor changes would be made in the
revenue bill by that set of individuals. And
to this connection he mentioned that the
committee thought it would be wise to
amend , that provision of the bill naming
February, and March as the mopths for
assessing property, substituting April and
Ma,- .,, .. .,.
. A member of the Joint revenue committee
that framed the bill-points out that such an
amendment. Instead of being minor or triv
ial, would practically tear the bill to
pieces or at least make it necessary for the
measure to go back to its authors for re-adjustment.
He says this provision, is ao in
terwoven with -others that it cannot be
changed (without affecting' the whole fabric.
And even if it la changed and the rest of
the bill made to conform, he saya It would
be a fatal mistake.
"By fixing February and March as the
months for1 assessment the county assessor
wilt have a whole mopth In which 'to com
plete his work After hi deputies have com
pleted theirs and before the county Board
of equalisation - meets. This board meets
the first of May; thus the assessor could
have all of April and the state board meets
the first of June, so that all the work could
be well attended to by that time. But It
the assessing must be done In April and
May, When will the county assessor hare
any time to go ever the work of his deputies
unless you change the time of the meeting
of the county and state boards of equali
sation? 1 think the revenue eommlttee had
better think seriously before making any
such change as this."
The Omaha delegation will hold an Im
portant meeting Tuesday night In room S
of the Llndell hotel for the consideration
of H. R. 320, the Omaha charter bill. The
committee is anxious that all Omaha citl
sens who have any, suggestions to offer
or any changes to propose appear at this
meeting and make known their wishes. A
good sized delegation from Omaha is ex
pected on this occasion.

of narrows la ' t on.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. March 2. (Special Tele
gram.) Under special rule brought in this
morning by the co-Dmlttee on. rules, tho
omnibus public building bill was taken up
and the conference asked for by. the sen
ate was granted by the house. The tug
f war now comes between the conferees
of the two houses over what shall remain
and what shall go out of the, bill, the differ
ence In appropriations between the senate
and house - measure being upwards of
$2,000,000. Under the house bill York and
Grand Island are given $10,000 each tor the
purchase of a site, while Lincoln n given
$350,000 for the erection of a new building
back of the present old structure, and the
Treasury department is empowered to sell
the present postoffice building for a sum
of not less than $50,000 to the city of Lin
coln. This particular Item was also car
ried by the senate .bill and Is not In con
ference. The Hems regarding York and
Grand Island, however, are subject to con
ference and It will be Interesting to watch
the outcome. In Iowa, Mason City and
Webster City are favored by the house bill,
but omitted from tbe senate bill, and are
therefore subject to conference. , In appro
priations for South Dakota, - Yankton and
Pierre have been cut .In both senate and
house bills, but it Is understood that tbe
bouse conferees have been Instructed by
the committee on public buildings and
grounds to Increase the amounts appro
priated so that they will conform to the
recommendatloa Made by the secretary of
the treasury--While thVre are a great many
Items In conference on the omnibus bill,
it Is confidently believed that the conferees
of the two -bodies will be able to reach a
conclusion within- a very short time, the
senate In a number of cases having already
Intimated a desire to meet the house
wherever possible. -

Colonel C. W. Hepburn, chairman of the

bill, reform In revenue cutter service, pure
food bill, safety appliance bill, which an
army ot railroad men throughout the coun
try demanded, department of commerce bill
and antl-dJsorlmlnatlon and rebate Mil.
These he said were among some of the very
important meaaures which , the committee
had acted favorably upon and which were
now laws. "There is no committee in con

Another marked and positive victory for
Paine's Celory Compound! Another marvel
ous example of life-saving! -
Mrs. Kate Orinnett, a popular and well
known lady residing In Uormanla, Sabine
Co., Ark., who expected to die, I made well
and strong by nature' health restorer af
ter the best efforts of a faithful physician
had failed. This victory, and the scores
of wonderful cures wrought trotn week to

a confidence in th- great spring medicine
that Is enduring and far reaching. At this
season Talne' Celery Compound rescues
and permanently cure young and old who
are wenkem-d and broken dowa by dis
ease; It never falls; Its virtues are all
powerful even at the eleventh hour. Mrs.
Grlnnett, thankful for renewed health ed
strength, writes thus:- .
"Last September I was very - 111 and
thought I was going to die. . I was cold
and lifeless and my heart would flutter
and shake like a leaf. I had cold sweats,
so profuse that my garments would he wet.
I had pains in my shoulders and arms,- at
times so severe thst I was obliged to use
morphine. The doctor said my liver was
In bad condition. He treated me for quite
a long time, but I only got temporary re
lief. I heard of Talne's Celery Compound
and bought a bottle of It, used it, but tho
only chauge I experienced was an Improved
appetite. I had decided not to use the
medicine any longer, but my husband
persuaded me to try anolhct bottle, which
soon gave me happy reaults, and I con
tinued with Paine's Celery Compound un
til I had taken six bottles. Now I am
physically a new woman; I feel well, work
my garden, do all my own house -work and
am gaining in strength and vigor every
day. I recommend Paine's Celery Compound
to my friends and neighbors. This is the
first time I have ever indorsed a medicine."
