for the state.
The committee sandwiched In a session
during the noon feeeia t the house. Mr.
Btuefer was again on the stand. He stated
that" after the Burt county bond deal h
never ' bought bond -..from counties, de
taching coupons not where he dealt di
rectly wltA tt county, gomeofher trans
actions were gone overan then Mr.-Bttoe-fer
stated tbat- 'Nenge hever figured In
any buOthe Cuming and "Burt county1 bond
deals. He stated that while treasurer
most bond transactions were made through
brokers. Many times he' bought through
Kelly Kelly -of topeka, '.Kan., v he said.
This was known by the Board of. Educa
tional Lands nd. Funds, under which he
operated. He d4' not regard It wrong then
nor now and aald- he never- derived a cent
of profit front any suoh transaction., Btue
fer said It waa. not his custom to keep tab
on when counties were going to Issue bonds
or go to county s4ts and to-bid on bonds.
The custom waa,' he said for' s0m member
of the : board of.' county' commissioners' to
call and see him. The-only man 'who ever
came to see him. from Burt county- Jjef' jiald,
was J, R. Sutherland, and It developed that
his vlslUwas saty incidental and not for
the specific -object of getting Btuefer to
agree to take the bonds. ,
Letters Bent . to Btaefer.
John F. Piper, ex-county , treasurer of
Burt county, was on the stand and testified
that .he wrote a letter to Btuefer as state
treasurer' for' Franklin Everett, who was
chairman "of the Burt County board, asking
Btuefer at what rate of Interest he would
buy the bonds. A letter purporting to be a
carbon copy of this on and which wss so
Identified by Piper and later Identified as
to substance by Mr. Everett was Introduced
In evidence. It was brought" out that
two such letters had been written and
Piper and Everett both, testified that nei
ther were answered by Btuefer. Btuefer
had testified that bs never received any
such letters. The testimony brought out
the point that Piper, at the time of the
writing of these letters, .was cashier of the
Farmers' hank at Lyons, Burt county, in
which Mr.. Everett's ten
ested and where the elder Everett got all
nis man wpicn went through ths hand of
PlpeK Mr;. .Everett. In hi testimony, stated
however," that he was pleased with the
sale of the bonds at the time and at present
and further, stated thai h had not author
ised Mr. Bears to make the Investigation
of this', case, which was begun about a
year ago. He said the county realized
about 800 In premiums off the deal and he
considered it a good bargain. As to Mr.
Sutherland; Mr. Everett stated that Suther
land did not tell him, as chairman of the
board, that Btuefer had promised to tak
the bonds at 14. He said no one ever
sppeared befor( the board and , mad any
such statement. - The point "wa.,bro.ught out
In thla ' testimony that ' these bonds were
advertised In the Lyon and Tekamah
J. K. Hancock of Burt county then took
the stand and testified to having talked
with Mr. Btuefer about these bonds In the
latter'a office In Lincoln In January, 1901
and that .Stuefer M t.f ki '.
hwhen the bonds were to be sold and he
wiuusm oe wouia take them at i per
cent. Hancock aald. thar wnu.rf. xv.
was with him at the time.
E. D. Beck, member of the Burt County
Board of County Commissioners, swore
that no one ever appeared before the boand
as a representative of State Treasurer Btue
fer and said that Mr. Btuefer would take
thes bond. He Said ke wa once ap
proached by Sutherland,' personally, and
was told that the county could not get the
bond refunded for 8. Beck testified as
to the two letters that- were said to have
been written to . Mr, Btuefer nc aald that
Mr. Everett told hlm- that he had a clerk
writ the letter.- j.

erett of the Board of Ceunty Comnflssloners
told him he bad had letters written to
Btuefer asking at what rat be would buy
tlw bonds and had never received aa an
swer. Beck said Nellgh had offered to buy
the bonds at i per cent and 1800 premium,
but that he preferred to accept an offer
which J. R. Sutherland said Stuefer made
to take them at . He was In the minor
ity on the board, he said, and did not have
his way. He said he nor any member of
th board communicated with Mr. Btuefer,
notwithstanding the latter reported offer.
The witness said he had never ques
tioned the legality of the Nellgh. transac
tion or asked .Scars to Investigate It. He
said he never heard this question discussed
by the board.
Fodrea was the next witness. He identi
fied the two checks, 170.000 on the First
isatlonal and 110,000 on the Merchant Na
tlonal bank of Omaha, which Btuefer paid
Nellgh for the bopds, and the entry la the
bond book, ke corroborated the former's
statements explaining that the delivery of
tne Dotrts on July S was dated July 6 be
cause they were delivered after office hours
and the 4th was a holiday. Ha also identi
fied certain records of Interest received by
State Treasurer Stuefer from the First Na
tional bank. He said the exact number of
coupons detached to pay Nellgh was 184 at
$18.75, making $3,450, the present worth of
$4,000, the value of the coupons for ten
years. This explained why the $550 In cou
pons was left attached to the boads. Fodrea
said he'thought the atats'-got all the money
uuo 11 on tne two- check.
Attorney General Prout testified to having
advised Mr. Btuefer as stated above and
having heard Sutherland tell of the pending
issue or me Hurt county bonds. H tiPTt
heard of these honds from Btuefer, who
enowea mm a letter regarding thorn from
Nellgh. He told Stuefer If he bought them

FIGHT OVER PURE FOOD BILL
Hard Smra;le Made Aoralnst Some of
Its ProTislosi y city
(From a Staff, Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March 24.-(Speclal.)-After
a fight continuing nearly an day the senate
finally went on record In favor of a pure
food law. Hall and. .Howell of Douglas.
O'Neill of Lancaster, Brady of Boone and
others fought the bill as prepared by the
deputy food commissioner, and all th tac
tic that could be employed were brought
Into -use to defeat the. measure. The
fight waa made bn 'S. P. 8 and after that
had been ordered eflgrosed Its companion
bill, S. F. 8S, was ordered engrossed with
out any trouble. 3 - -
8. T. 82 makes ttafood law much broader
snd gives the 'deputy1 "food commissioner
much morsf antidrll'y; He is' authorised
under it to employ ehemlst at a salary of
not less than 11.000 per year and a trav
eling food Inspector- at a sa'lary of not
less than $60 per month, and If neces
sary he Is allowed to employ a clerk. The
commissioner 1 empowered to enforce th
law in regard to the adulteratldn of but
ter, cheese and their Imitations, milk,
cream, vinegar and other food products
used by man. The companion bill provides
that no person or company shall manufac
ture er sell within th state any article
of food which Is adulterated and not
branded such. Hall argued that it would
seriously Injure the manufacturers of th
state by forcing them to manufacture pure
goods while their foreign competitors were
shipping in and selling the Impure goods
labeled pure. He believed that ft would
give to the deputy food commissioner too
much authority. Howeir argued against th
bill and did it from a sclentiflo -standpoint
Wall of Sherman. Sloan of Fillmore, Way
of Piatt and Harrison of Hall each made
talks for th bill. . Harrison argued that the
Women's clubs pf th stats had asked for
the passage of such a bill and he believed
that th women knew about what was
needed along the food line.
, When the question wa finally, put. to
have th bill Indefinitely postponed, and
was lost by a standing vote of 13 to 15.
Hall of Douglas attempted to kill It by
proposing aevtral amendments that would
vitally affect Its operations. Th first
one was to strike out th salary of the
chemist' and clerk. This was lost by a
standing vote of 12 to 15. He then of
fered an amendment to that section pro
viding that the commissioner would have
power to analyse milk or cream, etc., wher
ever bought and told, by striking out th
word "bought or sold." This wa lost
by a vot of 8 to 15. He then offered hi
last amendment, striking out th line that
the analysis of th chemist should be taken
aa prima facie evidence. It wa at thi
Juncture that Sheldon rose to a point of
order and objected to Hall offering amend
ment,' th object of which were plainly to
kill the bill. '
Chairman Harrison then stated that' It
seemed thi wa the object of the Douglas
senator and that any further amendments
along that Una would be. declared out of
order. Thla led to a retort from Hall that
b wa not making th amendment to kill
tha bill, and he added that he wa not
satisfied with the last count. Harrison at
once bristled up and said he would not
permit sny Imputation on th count of
th clerk, and the Incident closed with
both men apparently much ruffled. The
bill was then ordered engrossed for a third
reading by a standing vot of 15 to 14. 8.
V. it then'went through without a fight.
Tt. following bill wer passed:
H. R. 100, for the establishment of junior
