The text, of the committee's report Is: '"
J What' the Bills Are.
Tour eommlttee on account and expendi
tures has been handed the following bill
for legislative supplies:
Omaha Printing company, twelve
bills, aggregating J1.6S1 3
Hardy Furniture company, carpet
and carpet lining..-. f9t 15
Harley Drug company 40 00
Theae bills are all certified to by Secre
tary of 8tate Marsh as being correct and
as having been . purchased by him for ac
count of . the legislature. Your., committee
was unable to find any authority vested In
the secretary of state for making such pur
chases, other than that found In section '4
of article It. chapter' Ixxxlil, of the Com
piled' -Statutes, which provides that "he
shall furnish tbe legislature and the officers
thereof all necessary fuel and .stationery
whan so directed by resolution of the leg
islature,' or eilher branch thereof." Tour
committee called on" the secretary of state
and Informed him that It was unable to
find .other authority, and as no resolutions
had "been directed to hlra authorising the
purchases, he was requested to cite his
authority for contracting the bills above
named. In' reply he stated that there' was
no authority. of law that he., had simply
followed the custom of his predecessors.

Your committee was unable to find any
new Wilton carpet" In the building: When
asked as t thlsitem the secretary of. state,'
notwithstanding the fact that ha had certi
fied this bill as being correct, a Id that no
such carpet had been purchased or was In
the buUdfng; that he had not agreed to
pay "more' than 1.30 per yard for any car
pet. ' As to the other carpets designated
as r'velvet," yonr committee has examined
them and finds them to be of tbe poorest
quality of velvet and plush carpets. Sam
ples were taken and sent by different par
ties to three firms handling carpets In thi
cty of Lincoln, one of them being the
Hardy Furniture ' company. Each of the
firms stated that the samples were ot, the
poorest . quality, being poorer than they
usually, carried In atock. Being aaked to
name a price at which they would flurnlsh
same for a residence, a price of 90 cents per
yard waa made by each of the three firms.
Terry waa quoted at 30 cents to 65 cents,
and carpet lining at 3 cents to 6 centa. ,
, The prices .charged by the Omaha Print,
log company are without doubt excessive.
In tbe varloua bills are found rubber bands,,
typewriter ribbons, library paste, shears,
040,0118, wire letter trays, typewriter car
bon paper, pens and one typewriter desk,
ao marked that It has been possible to get
prices on the same articles from othe.
flms. Articles so mentioned are charged
In. the. bills at $709.74. Prices mads by
another firm, to your committee on theae
same tems would make 'them cost but
$404.67. and this If bought In smalt quan
tities. It the earn rate of overcharge holds
good for the entire amount of the bills, the
charge of $1,181.69 'would acale down to

Stats .Journal Company, which corporation,
whes, I west into office, was enjoying an
eaelnsive 'craft'- which It had had to long
.years. I have cqmpared the JoUls of my
exyendljures wtiit the bills Incurred by
former ... Incumbents ..ot this office and And
that-1, have actually saved the stats. money
and It 'is very huml'llating. In face of these
circumstances, to .have this thing sprung
In this pianner caJoulated to reflect upon
me. In buying supplies for the. state I
have done what I thought was' my duty In
following precedent et'by my predeces
sors. I am more than anxious to have an
Investigation Instituted and I promise to
give the committee all the assistance and
Information I can. Aa to the velvet car
pets, I ordered a certain number or amount
of carpet frcm the Hardy Furniture com
pany and eupposed the bill filled aa given.
If not, then I don't see that I am to blame."
After the velvet carpet had . been found
this afternoon In the third story of the cap
ltol building, W. L. Nauslor, 4 janitor ap
pointed by Secretary Marsh, made this
"I knew th carpet was there and have
frequently told Mr. Marsh. He had said It
was not needed and that It should be re.'
turned to the fins from which it wss pur
chased. But it was never returned."
W. H. Clark, storekeeper during this and
the legislature of 1901, by MrMareh'a ap
pointment. Is said to have charge of re
serve property such as this carpet. When
the carpet waa bought It la said" to . have
been very much needed and the, bill for It
waa O. Kd. by the secretary 6 state. ' '
In tbe presence of Mr. Marsh, William
Hardy of the Hardy, Furniture company
made this statement:-
"Wa have delivered to the state every
Item In our bill and tor each lttnj the reg
ular. Lincoln , retail price was charged. It
such is found not to be the case we will
donate all . this . property to the state. 1
have beea given no opportunity of going
before this committee, although the. com
mlttee Informed me that I would be given
such opportunity. I was anxious, and km
yet, to testify, to what I know to be facta."
Opponents of the alleged printing trust
make the bald assertion that this resolution
and the propose lnrvatlgatton Is the work
of that combination, which is endeavoring
to get even with Secretary Marsh, whom
they accuse of going outside the so-called
trust in making hla purchases.
. With tbe expiration of the forty-day limit
for introducing bills, a comparison of tho
number Introduced at the ' present session
and In Its predecessors. shows that this has
not been a prolific one' In this respect. In
the senate there hare, been Introduced a
total ot 294 blllfr as against 309 two years
ago. S5S four years ago 'and 409 in tbe '95
session, a less number than any ot ita Im
mediate predecessors. In the house the
number Is not the smallest ot recent 'ses
sions, but only one makes a more econom
ical showing In this regard, and that was
the session of two years ago, with a total of
481, against 487 the present session. In
1899 there were 623 bills Introduced In the
house, 650 in 1897 and 641 In 1895.

Kennedy of Douglas, author of the bouse
resolution . providing for the enforcement
of the maximum freight rate law. today In
troduced a bill constituting tbe. governor,
commissioner of public lands and the state
treasurer a board to have charge of these
ratea. They shall raise and lower them
aa provided by law. At present this func
tion is vested In no living body. The taw
vests tbe duty In the Board of Transporta
tion, which is A misnomer, since this board
has ceased to exist. Mr. Kennedy's object
is to secure every .mesne and facility of
atrengthening his movement to Insure th
enforcement of the .maximum freight rates,
which he contends have pot. been enforced.

Governor Geerof Oregon arrived In the
city this afternoon.' He Is here In behalf
of the Lewis and ' Clark exposition. He
ia anxious to secure a reasonable appro
prlation from the legislature' to give Ne
braska a repreaentation In the fair. He
talked (with thirty or forty membera to
night, and. expressed satisfaction later at
the sentiment represented by these mem
bers. ? -: .i :,
"We appropriated $20,000 for one of the
Omaha expositions,' said Governor Geer,
"and we think Nebraska might reciprocate
in appropriating; $10,000 or $16,000 for our
Tbe governor goea to Missouri from here.
He' expects to secure a liberal donation
from that state. Oregon has appropriated
$50,000 for the 8U Louis world's fair. Tbe
state of Oregon; the governor says, has
set aside $500,000 for the Lewis and Clark

WHISKEY VS. COFFEE.
A Woman's Kxperlmeata.
Some families have sad experiences with
whiskey. Probably twice aa many fami
lies have alckness and distress caused by
coffee and the cause not suspected half the
A woman from Tacoma, Wash., fays:
"One of our family had become ao ill that
the doctor finally pronounced him incurable
from enlarged liver. He recommended a
sea voyage, which might prolong his life,
but said it waa only a question ot time
when he would die from the disease.
"He was -dreadfully nervous, , thin, could
not sleep at night, lost flesh and strength
dally snd everything he ate or drank soured
on his stomach. He was so weak and
faint he could hardly walk about. ,
"I finally came to the conclusion that
coffee' made the mischief, so tsok coffee
away from him altogether and next morn
ing gave him Postum Food Coffee. He
ateadily began to get better and has. sever
had a sour stomach from that time. He
now sleeps all night, where he used to
suffer the agonies of death. He haa gained
over 20 pounds and is well and strong.
"My little boy was given coffee at an early
age and be began to have spells of sick
ness at times. I did not suspect the
trouble until my expedience with Postum
opened my eyes; then I took coffee away
from him and gave him Poatum ateadily.
If you should see him now and sea how
well and strong he Is, you would not be
lieve It was the same puny boy he was
when he was drinking coffee. .
"An acquaintance of ours csrrted Postum
with him to the gold fields of Alaska. He
aays he met, aome men up there who had
run out of Postum and could not drink cof
fee. They offered him aa high aa twenty
dollars a pound for the Postum. He said
It was worth forty do Iters a pound to him,
for it gave him strength to endure the
hardships snd. that he would not part with
It at any price until he could get more.
"Now about my own case. I was a alck.
nervous woman and did not suspect it was
coffee, but from the experience I had
gained about two years ago I quit coffee
and took up Postum Food Coffee. My ap
petite Improved. I can eat 'anything,
have no Indigestion and have gained about
forty pounds In the two years.
"I know of a man whose eyes were ao af
fected by coffee drinking that he was going
blind. The doctor suspected coffee to be
the trouble and ordered him to quit and
take on Postum Fo. d Coffee. Tbe change
produced a great rhaop.e In his eyea. He
gradually got better and haa now left off
h'.s glasses altogether. Ho would have
been atone blind if he had not quit eoffao

Back After Coafereaee.'
PHILADELPHIA. March $, A general
strike against the American Bridge com
pany has been called by the International
Association of Bridge and Structural Iron
Workers, This order includes all construe
tlon work In the.handr of the company
throughout the United States and Canada
and Involves thousands of .men in. all sec
tions. ,,, .
When the order was received by House -smith
and Bridges union No. $ of this city
strikes were called on all operations where
American. Bridge, company Iron was used
In construction, though . the ereotlng con
tracts were In. the habda of general .ocn-
tractors, who purchased the Iron from the
American Bridge company.--'
Mea Are Ordered Oat.
Frank Buchanan, president of the Inter
national union, .and analher member of- tbe
executive. board, came to this city. Aa the
result of a conference between representa
tives of seversl contractors and the busi
ness agents ot the local union, the men
were ordered back to work today on. the
operations In this city pot being erected
by the American Bridge, oompan.,
The American Bridge company Is said to
have large, construction contracts at many
points. It Is ststed h?re that In New York
1,600 men are Idle, while Pittsburg, Albany,
Buffalo and St. Louis are said to be seri
The union has taken steps to prevent. Tf
possible tbe subletting jf construction con
tracts. ': ."-'- - -
An officer of the union, said today:
In NewTfork the companjT locked out the
Hoisting - Engineers' union. That action
forced between 400 and NO of oar -men Into
Idleness. It waa therefore thought that If
the tight between us was. to be forced by
them It might aa well come now. The Nev
York union demands $450 per day after
May 1. and that Is below the acale de
manded by the bricklayers' union.
Other causes for the strike are said to ba
the effort ef the American Bridge company
to reduce! tbe number in gangs of riveters
who operate pneumatic hammers gnd the
employment of laborers in wo.k which the
brldgemea claim they should perform.
Calls 'strike Sympathy , Dlspate.
NEW YORK. March $. An amdal ot tps
American Bridge company said today:'
The strike has been called without our
receiving any prior notice of trouble, no
far as we know the strike Is In sympathy
with the hoisting engineers, and-, reports
from, our foremen tnroush the country
show that everything Is tied up. every
where in tne country.
Wa have always lived ud to our agree
ments with the men tn regard to the em
ployment of union men, but the unions
have failed to supply us wl'h union men.
The uut-silon for us to decide now Is
whether to employ nonunion men Ot stojj
