COLUMBUS. O., Jan. l.-Th eventy
seventh general assembly of .. Ohio con
vened today, th house being organized by
the republicans, who hav alxty.two votes
against fifty-nine for the democrats, and
the senate being organised by the demo
crats, who have nineteen votes, counting

ounty. who voted with them, against eigh

ernor Harding presided In the senate. He
will be succeeded on January 8 aa president
"f the senate, hy Andrew U Harris, the
republican lieutenant governor-elect. All
tile democratic caucus nominations In the
senate and all the republican nominations
In the house were ratified without opposi
tion. Several attempts were made to organ
ize bolts, but all failed.
Carmal A. Thompson of Lawrence county
was elected speaker of the house, and in
accepting the honor declared that economy
wa the watchword.
In the afternoon the farewell message
of (Governor Derrick wus read. It I a
voluminous document and notable for Its
strong declaration against graft In nil Ita
forms. It says In part:
I moxt earnestly recommend the abolish
ment of the lobby In OIUo. It Is neither
imsslble nor desirable to Isolate members
f the general assembly from the people.
It Is right and proper that executive and
administrative officers of the state, who
oe the servants of the people, should keep
In close touch with the members ot the
legislature. In order to ascertuln and carry
nut their wishes. It Is necessary and de
sirable that the public at large, or any
cltixcna who are specially Interested In some
subject of legislation, should have full op
portunity to appear before the proper com
mltteea In either house to be publicly heard
In any manner affecting the welfare of the
atate or the Interests of any business or
class if people. But beyond these limita
tions all contact between legislators and
outsiders In the work of legislation should
be stopped and all menus of soliciting.
Importuning or demanding the enactment
or repeal of Inws or the allowance of ap
propriations should be prevented by the
most rigid measures at the command of
the general assembly.
Milking Bills" Condemned.
There Is a creature, however, who more
richly deserves the scorn and contempt
of men than the lobbyist. It is he who
Is responsible for the so-called "milking
bills" Introduced for the purpose of ex
torting money from special Interests. He
It is who often brings the lobbyists In
self-defense to the legislature. Acting
very naturally upon the law of self
preservation and desiring to protect them
selves from threatened ruin, the owners
of legitimate industries or the proprietors
of proper and lawful businesses are often
compelled to send representatives to the
legislature to watch the progress of
threatened attacks upon their private In
terests bv those whose sole motive is to
arouse this anxiety. No legislation will
reach this situation. The sole remedy for
It lies In the wholesome contempt which
all members of the legislature should feel
and show towards those who dare to en
gage In this pernicious practice. I spcuk
of this evil because It Is urged as an ex
cuse for the lobby, and there 'ought nni
to be any excuse for the lobby.
Inst System of Taxation.
The people of Ohio have come to re
gard as their state policy a system of
taxation .which relieves real and personal
property from the entire burden of state
expenditures other than for educational
purposes. This policy to relieve the homes
and farms of the pcot ,e from taxation
for state purposes and to place the bur
den upon those who enjoy seclal privi
leges from the state Is both wise and
.lunt and should not be disturbed. It
should he carried still farther, so that
ultimately no tax whatever la Imposed
upon real or personal - property for any
I am earnestly In favor of the nomina
tion of all county, municipal and other
local i officers by a primary election. I
believe that conventions for such purposes
hIiouIiI be abolished and thst all aspirants
for oftlce Kliould have an equal opportunity
uv b nnminnted by a direct vote of the
lieople. ' ...
Tuere is no subject In which the people
are more vitally Interested than the good
government of their municipal corpora
tions. That there should be a healthy
IKilUtcal advancement and reform In our
cities and vlllugea Is a mutter of genertil
Interest nnd Insistent demand. The num
ber of officers provided for the smaller
municipalities should he reduced. The
merit system should be extended to all
departments of the city government. The
business of a municipal corpora Hon should
he managed like that of a private cor
poration. There Is no reason why a man
Hhould be employed In the waterworks de
triment or the health department or In
any other place In the city service be
cause he la a democrat or republican. He
ought to be chosen simply because he Is
bniiest, sober, Industrious and capable, and
he ought not to be discharged unless he
ceases to be one of these things. He ought
not to be required to support any political
organisation and he ought not to be per
mitted to contribute to any. Nothing
would make bnssUm so unpopular and un
attractive In our municipalities aa the re
moval of the spoils of office.
AGREE TO STOP REBATING
lasuranre- 4 ompoale Doing Wnslnes
In Missouri Promise to Quit
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.. Jan. l.-Super-Ir.trndent
V. D. Vandlver of the .iate In
surance department tonight gave ut a
statement concerning Insurance matters, In
which he declared that he will hold Insur
ance companlea to their promises to stop
the practice of rebating, and that it la
gratifying to him to know that the Mis
souri companlea have decided to stop the
practice of writing special contracts.
The statement follows:
The new year opens with the prospect of
a number of practical linprovomunla In
the method of Insurance business outside
of the reforms that should come foni the
New York investigation. Fur Instance,
several of the large companies have as
sured me that they will co-operate with
our dtfHrtment In the effort to stop the
practice of rebating. In fact, they assure
m that they will discharge any agent
found guilty of this practice, and I ixpect
to bold them to It on the first case that is
brought to my attention after thle date
'and before tbe companies get their II
ceusea renewed March I. It I also gratify.
Ing to be able to stale that the Missouri
companlea have decided to stop the prac
tice of writing board contracts or outside
special contracts which, though they have
not boen considered Illegal, are not ap
proved by the best Insurance authorities.
This will make It easier to stop the prac
tice of outside companies.
Honest business is to be the motto In
Missouri this year.

first with Ma h ton and later with Boat, the
Judeans; but Dorothy of New York could
not say to Hoangutaha of "out west,"
"Whither thon guest, there I will go." for
the low of race and convention Is stronger
than love, stronger than' friendship, and
stronger than anything cave a strong man's
sense of honor. And, happily, the two
run together. Sympathy rushes to the
rescue and says, "Let the girl wed with
the Indian: she loves him and he love her,
and love' Is the first and ureatest law," aud
retires weeping when- eomnon sense drags
them 'apart, and sets them on their separate
roads, alone. And we left the theater after
the play. Just a little bit saddened to think
that this must be so, yet r-allslng fully that
duty is above all In life, and that all heroes
and heroines are not happy.
A word of thanks Is due here to Mr.
DeMllle. for that lie lias had the courage
to write a drama of genuine Interest, and
to furnish It with a rational terminal and
not the mushy "happy ending" other
writers have deemed absolutely essential
for American audiences. Let us hope that,
now the way has been pioneered, the
dramatists will credit us with being sen
sible men and women, and cease to treat
us as children, who must always end the
meal with sweetmeats, no mutter what
precedes. "Strongheart" Is an excellently
conceived drama, prepared from material
easily at hand, and without exhausting
the aubjoct. not by several long Jumps. It
ought to be a forerunner of a lot of mighty
good pluys, dealing all with purely Ameri
can topics. Our life Is not so crystallxed.
maylK., as that of Europe, but surely It Is
as complex, and In the varying degrees of
democracy material as Interesting exists
as ever was secured from the somewhat
monotonous stratum or European aristoc
racy. Mr. Edeaon showed more than ever last
night his grasp on dramatic potentialities
He evinces in the character of the Indian a
sure understanding of the many minor ele
ments that combine In the correct rf..ii..
Hon. of a given character, and by properly
directing bis efforts gives us an Indian we
can understand. And we know Injun pretty
well at that. The childlike simplicity and
trust of the red man Is a -most pronounced
characteristic of Strongheart; his fearless
manner and his Implicit faith are all parts
of the same undeveloped nature thut Is
not versed In the subtleties of white man's
wayg and does not draw -distinctions with
the nicety that prevails -among the civil
ized peoples pf the world.. It la a -savage
he wives us; veneered With civilisation,
clothed In the garb of culture, and sur
rounded by the atmosphere of ultra refine
ment, but moving-to his object with sav
age directness. He makes It clear why the
girl could pot' marry the Indian, and he
comes to understand It himself. It may be
that In some aspects It Is the Indian of
the. legend rather than the Indian of the
reservation he gives -us; this is the fault
of the author. In detail, Mr. Edesons
Indian, is remarkably correct, too. His
method of speech, his bearing, hia manner
In all regards, Is accurate to a degree that
la moat comforting to one who hag beoomo
accustomed to see the red man misrepre
sented on the stage. All In all. Mr. Ede

through the play last night, and aurely
showed their enthusiasm by tbe demon
stration at the close of the second act,
when the stirring Incidents In connection
with the foot ball game were unrolled.
The earnest profanity of Buckley aa ha ex
horted his men In the dressing room, the
sterling honesty of Farley, the coach for
the other fellows, and the Intensely dra
matic scene that followed the denunciation
of Strongheart by the real culprit, were
so typical of college life that folks seemed
to be far away from tha theater, and back
at "alma mater" once more. Then a very

not stilled until Mr. Bdeson, breathless,
came before the curtain and spoke a few
words of appreciation and thanks.
"Btronghoait" will be offered again this
evening and on Wednesday evening, and
also at a Wednesday matinee. It should
not be missed by any who love a fine play

WOMAN U CLUB ANO CHARITY
Now that the holldsys are over the club
work will be resumed. Practically all of
the d'lwrtments of the Omaha Woman's
club and the other organisations will hold
their meetings on tho next regular meet
ing days, beginning this week. It has
been more than a month since some of
the clubs bate met, an with their minds
cleared of holiday preparation the club
women will take up thetr work again with

Miis Magee is going to have sufficient
funds to carry on clas work at the City
mission that had been dropped through
want of funds to kep It up. Through the
efforts of these friend a sum has been
deposited In one of the banks, from which
Miss Magee may draw 825 a month for
her work. Resides this the Women's
Christian Temperance union Is contribut
ing support to temperance and sonic of
the Industrial classes, and this additional
help will enable the city missionary to do
more effective work than ever.
The Woman's Federation of Elmlra,
N. Y.. Is soon to have a fine new club
buildlrg. Ground valued at tio.onn has been
donated by Congressman Fassett and his
wife has given 835.000 toward the build
ing. The building will include, among
other departments, a kindergarten where
mothers who work may leave their chil
dren during the day. and a completely
equipped laundry where- women having no
facilities for working at home may do
their washing easily and at small expense.
Besides these the building will house sev
eral other charities.
One of the most Interesting and hotly
waged campaigns n the history of woman's
struggle for the ballot Is now In progress
In Oregon. Not only the "radicals." as
the woman suffragists are often called,
but the club women, regardless of the
purpose for which their clubs were or
ganised and practically every organisation
of women iti the state, has joined in the
truggle. It Is under the provisions of the
Initiative and referendum law that the
women hope to gain their end. and tho sec
retary of atate of Oregon has accepted
the petition for the submission of the
equal suffragist amendment and pro
nounced It one of the best prepared peti
tions that, has ever come to his attention.
It . took the combined skill of Miss Gall
Laughlln and some of the best legal au
thorities of the state, however, to pre- j

as every possible effort was made to de
feat It through some technical Irregularity.
If the Hi. Paul cluh women make good
all of the promises of their press commit
tee, the delegates and visitors to the next
biennial of the General Federation of
Women's Clubs will have a glorious time.
All of the wonderful natural attractions
of that vicinity are to be called Into requi
sition for the entertainment and pleasure
of the convention's guests in addition to
all the'oliier usual accomplishments of
the biennial. A trip to 'Yellowstone park
Is also being arranged at greatly reduced
rats to follow the convention. Mrs.
Decker recently spent several days in St.
Paul conferring with the local board, and
the new; armory lias, been decided upon
as the place of meeting. Entertainment,
lodging and board promise to be much
more reasonable thun they were at St.
Louis and It Is estimated that delegates
will be able to cover the meeting at half
the expanse of that occasion. - -.,
SUP. LETTER BOX.
On the Cnttleman'a Hide.
OMAHA, Dec. SO. To, the Editor of The
Bee: I read the Interview with C. F. Stew
art of Cody, Neb., on the land fencing
proposition a printed In your paper Fri
day and us a cattleman I want to thunk
The Bee for allowing this side of the ques
tion to be go fairly and fully stated throilgh
Its columns. I speak In behalf of every
cattleman In the western part of the atate,
I think, when I aay that the statements as
presented In that Interview are correct and
afford a public exposition of our side of
the case, which has hitherto been unavail
able. We reallxe that The Bee has its
own views on thla question and we are
willing to concede to The Bee Ita way of
thinking, but nevertheless we Insist theie
are two sides to the question and we be
lieve The Bee will concede to us our right
of opinion. This It has Indicated by allow
ing Mr. Stewart, with whom I am well
acquainted, to state our case.
It la not my desire to Impose on your
kindness by taking up much of -:ur valu
able space, but I want to ask. the privi
lege of merely saying a few words. I
want to preface my remarks by this as
sertion: Let It be understood at the outset
that th cattlemen of Nebraska moan to
be a law abiding set of men and did not
think they were violating the law In fen.
ting this land for the reason that years'
of practice has made this a common law
of th west. They also want to build up
Nebraska and Nebraska interests and not
tear them down. They believe they hav
don a great deal toward the upbuilding of
Nebraska's Interests; have been the means
Of establishing in the metropolis of this
state a packing Industry which makes
Omaha never lea than third and part of
th year second greatest packing center In
th world. This industry Is no dearer to
Omaha than to the rangers of the western
nd of the state through whose efforts,
largely. It waa mad possible. People may
say others would hav seised our oppor
tunity and built up th same Industry.
Perhaps so. And people may aay the cat
tlemen hav grown rich themselves while
building up Omaha and Nebraska. Some
have, that la true; other hav not. But
vert If all had that would not destroy tho
force of the fact that In building up public
and private fortunes these cattlemen have
suffered privation and hardship and have
risked life and fortune such as time has
proven others were not willing to risk.
When this state begun to settle up why
didn't Immigrants go on this land which
cattleman hav fenced? Why didn't they
tak their families and make those places
thlr homea? Now to then questions there
Is Just on answer as everyone familiar
with th facts knows, and that is this
Those Immigrants knew th land wasn't fit
for homesteads, that they couldn't live on
It. that In som instances they couldn't
get water within twenty miles distance.
Therefor they passed by this land and
nt farther west. What was th result?
Why th cattlemen took hold of th land,
faced all these hardships which th Im
migrants refused to faoo, endured all the
sacrifices and privation of personal com
fort and often safety and planted an In
dustry on those bleak and ba'rren plains
which made Nebraska a great state and
has don mora than can be estimated n
bringing settlers Into such portions of it
as ar habitable. And for this do you say
ths cattlemen shall be charged and con
victed of crime? Of what crime, helping to
build up a commonwealth by braving diffi
culties which fainter hearts shunned, by
risking what little money they had in a
oountry so barren of vegetable life that
thi 9opl looking for weslsiu uuuie re-
fused to accept? Is It of such crimes that
these men are to be convicted?
It is not my Intention to attempt to pass
upon the Justice of any law or the alleged
violation of any law, but I do urge the peo
ple of Nebraska and the country at large
to believe that there Is merit to our ca.e,
that becatiKe of the popular demand for
dei-ent government, for rig'd enforcement
of law. in all of which I most heartily con
cur, they ought not to be caught in th
whirl of excitement ' and judge the cases
of the cattlemen without tlte tnont Impartial
consideration of all the facts at their com
mand. We have faith in the integrity and
loftv desires of the president and the I'c
partment of Justice and we 1. I eve that be
fore a ju-jt tribunal a fnlr and Impartial
presentation of all the facts in the esses
will not fall to etshllh the freedom from
culpability of the cattlemen who have, In
pursuing their business, refrained from In
timidation or other forms of violence.
As a public organ and the mouthpleie of
the people of Nebraska, as well aa the me
dium of news, we ask Th- Ree pleiife to
give space to this letter. Yours very truly.

CATTI.K There was the usual Insfciiitl
cant SsLurdiiy's run. of cattle today and
not enough of any consequence to make a
market. Suppllea for the week have also
been light evcy day, the total reaching
l.uU) head, as against 19.232 head last week.
The run was also a tritle smaller for the
Same week one year ago. Tuere hus been
considerable warincd-up or short-fed and
common catllH on the market, with only
a few loads of really good to choice long
The market for cattle has been in de
cidedly unsatisfactory Miape ull week and
the trend of prices has oaen lower from
start to finish. Monday was a holiday and
no trading was dune on that day, and this,
combined with the holiday season, has
cut the supply down. The mild wealhei
conditions, coupled with the gonerous sup
ply ot game and poultry to be had, has
cut down the demand for fresh meat, with
the result thai packers hjvo not been
wanting much of a supply of beef cattle.
Then, too. the quality of the offerings has
been quite common all through the week.
Fortunately, while the demand has been
small, the supply has also been miner
lignt. Willi the result that prices have not
slumped as much as they might have, hud
there been a liberal run. Packers have
been decidedly bearish at all times, so
that tho week closes with prices on beef
steers I61j2ftc lower fur the week.
The market on cows and heifers has beep
in Just about the mine condition as the
beef steer trade. The run has been light,
slso the demand. The quality of the offer
ings consisted largely of warmed-up and
common Cattle moat of the time. Packers
appeared to have about all tills kind of
stock that they cared for and forced prices
down some, but not to the same extent
as on beeves. Truding has been dull and
dragffy at a decline of l'f16o.
The market on Blockers and feeders ha
been in a little better condition. There has
he-n a moderate supply and the qtiallitr
of the offering has been pretty fair. There
has been a good demand for any cfood to
choice stockers and feeders and the week
closes with an advance shown. The mar
ket on this kind of cattle has really been
In a good healthy condition all week sud
the close today Indicates that this Kind of
stuff Is strong to a dime higher than lust
HOGS Tner was a moderate tun ot
hogs on the market tills morning, iui cars,
about 7,0io head being reported In up to
noon. The receipts for the week total
about 89,036 head, which Is smaller than
last week by about 22,tf73 head, w hlle on
the other hand this week's run Is larger
than for the corresponding week lat year
by about 9,941 head. The receipts today
arc smaller than last Saturday by l.JuO head
and also smaller than for the same day
one year ago by about 8.U00 head. Trading
this 'morning opened brisk and active with
prices generally a dime higher. Later the
market eased off a little and imdlng was
somewhat dull. Oood choice heavyweight
hogs, however, were given the preference
over light stuff. Some light weight hugs
sold at prices that were hardly more than
steady with yesterday. Generally speaking
the market waa 6&10c higher than yester
day. The bulk of the stock brought In
the neighberhood of 5.07yri6.UH The top
price paid for prime heavyweights was
85.174. The average price of the lost today
Is the highest for any day this month. Th
market has been In a good healthy condi
tion all this week and there has been an
advance of about 10c over last week's close,
Monday was a holiday aud Tuesday saw
an advance while there waa a decline tho
next two days followed with another ad
vance on Friday and Saturday. Prlcea here
compare favorably with those at Chicago.
