If promises are violated, it plighted word

they who made the one and are responslbl
for the other are entitled of Just right

who serve tho nation well. This credit

LONDON. April 7. William Haye Fisher,
M. P., flnsnclal secretary of the treaaury
nnounced hla resignation In the House of
Commons today, aa a reault of hla connec
tion aa a director with a financial syndl
cato and of hla acceptance of a bonua of
shares in the concern.
Mr. Fisher said the syndicate, whose at
fairs were now before the courts, had never
Issued any shares to the public. The whole
difficulty arose from the vendor pledging
harea to a banker who sold them. Though
e, Mr. Fisher, was not rich, he and Sir
Joseph Lawrence, another member of this
private ayndicate, bad arranged that every
creditor and ' every shareholder should be
paid In full. He had handed over hla check
for $25,000 for this purpose.
While conscious of bis own Integrity, Mr.
Fisher recognized that the strlcturea of
Justice Buckley rendered htm liable to at'
tacka In hla official capacity, and that he
had, therefore, become a source of weak
neea to the government.
Mr. Fisher showed considerable emotion
while explaining the cause of hla reslgna

TROUBLE OVER PARTY RATES

CHICAGO, April 7. (Special Telegrams
Trouble which haa existed for aome time
over the application of party rates haa led
to the calling of a mass meeting of weatern
lines tomorrow In the office of the chair
man of the Western Passenger association.
An effort will be msde by several of the
strong lines to. secure a castlron agree
ment to confine party ratea to theatrical
companlea. The snarl over the matter haa
become so bad however, that there la little
hope of reaching an agreement which will
hold after the first party presents itself
for transportation. Chairman MacLeod and
some of the general passenger agenta are
making strenuous efforts to have party
rates corftned to theatrical people, be
cause If made general the government can
demand party rates tor the transportation
of troops and marines. Railroads both
east and west have united in the deter-
mlnatlon to fight the Interstate Commerce
commission's order compelling thorn to re
duce the ratea on hay. The case, which
will probably be hoard by the conrta In

LINCOLN. April 7. (Special.) The
governor this afternoon aent a communi
cation to the legislature regarding the Joint
resolution calling for a constitutional con
vention. The communication might bo
called veto of the resolution, while on
the other hand he appeala In the communi
cation to the members of the legislature to
reconsider Ita action and a.tbrolt Inatead
aome needed amendments to the present
constitution. The message takea up at aome
length the question whether the governor
haa the power to veto the Joint resolu
tion. Inclining to the opinion thst the con
stitution gives him such power. He plainly
points 'out his disapproval of the submis
sion of the call for a constitutional con
vention. It is ao worded that in case it
should be held the governor has the veto
power the communication would operate aa
No action waa takn on It In the aenata,
but when It waa read in the house a motion
waa made to reconsider the action of the
house on the convention matter. . A point
of order waa made against the motion that
aa the resolution originated tn the aenate,
that body had custody of It and the house
could not act until after the aenate had
acted. The speaker sustiined the point of
order and the whole matter went over.
Veto la Overridden.
The first time this session tho legislature
haa passed a bill over tha governor's veto.,
The measure Is 8. F. 81, which the aenata
acted upon laat 'i night. The house took
it up thla morning and amid acenee of ex
citement., overrode 'tha ' veto or the chief
; ftHuutlve. A -two-ihlrdq vet being ffeoaa-
,., - the homo hd to muster elxty-seven
TOtes. which It dld after the most atren-
uous skirmish or the kind this session. It
even surpassed that of yesterday when the
constitutional convention bill was rail
roaded through agalnat the Judgment and
wlahea of Governor Mickey and the pro
posed amendments to the constitution, for
which he stood, were burled In the legis
lative grave yard. '
S. F. 31. the bill authorizing J. E. Cohbey
to publish 600 aets of the compiled stat
utes of Nebraska at $9 a aet, came back
from the aenate this morning with an of
ficial notification that it had passed over
the governor's veto and the request that
the bouse concur In the aenate'a action.
Douglas of Rock and McClay of Lancaster
mado vtgoroua speeches In an endeavor to
stem the tide, support the governor and
leave the aenate alone at sea. But Sears
of Burt, Perry of Furnas and Thompson of
Merrick (all theae being republican lead
ers) spoke In advocacy of the bill and de
cried what they termed an appeal to aentl
ment by those who had urged non-concurrence
in the aenate'a action.
Finally the matter came to a roll call.
But the roll call waa barren of results and
had to bo repeated. Indeed it waa repeated
at toast half a dozen tlmea and the namea
of somo members were called a dozen tlmee
before they would vote. It waa evident
that many preferred not to go on record.
Scarcely a member kept his seat during the
proceedings which were fraught with great
excitement. Such lively lobbying haa not
! been aeen alnce January 6. Presently a
round-up was mado and the roll waa sev
eral members "shy." Then tho call of the
house was demanded. It proceeded a little
way and was raised. Again It waa de
manded, ralaed ond demanded again, be
fore It waa evident that the bill bad passed
with the necessary two-thirds majority.
The final vote was sixty-seven to twenty
four. Twenty-ono of the minority were re
publlcsns and three fusloniets, Loomls and
Kennedy the fusion leadera and Qlshwlller.
Several other fuslontsts originally . voted
to non-concur, but were, dragged over be
fore the vote was announced.
Object a Raalneaa Oar.
Governor Mickey in explaining hla veto
of thla measure, says:
I herewith return to you 8. V. 31 without
m v approval. This is "a bill for an act
authorizing the preparation of an official
statute making It admissible in evidence
nnl suthorlzlng the purchase of a supply
thereof by the ntute."
For economical easone It si-eras to me
proper that thin bill rhnuld be vetoed. It
provides that too sets of two vohnres each
of the ststutes thus compiled eiiwil lie pur
chased by tho state for .llxtr:utlon at a
,...t nf in ucr ret. Involvlna n total ex-

!r the one volume. Ho far aa 1 have been
iihle t' determine the romplled statutes
have been very satisfactory and have an
swered eery purpose. It does not appeur
to bo u rational proposition to obligate
the state to pay 19 for a cer-'ke whlt-h can

l Tno majority or lawyers in ma legisla
ture supported the bill, but leading at-
(ornl.yg (rou, the outside threw ihclr com
bined influence agaiust it.
The governor probably will cut out of
the appropriation bill the amount Included
to pay for theae books. Prominent bouae
members declare bla veto will be over
ridden If he does. He could, by holding the
bill until after tha legislature, adjourns,
circumvent Its action.
