LINCOLN. Neb.. Feb. 28 (Special. -The
Btate 1'ress association this morning refused
to adopt a resolution endorsing the U-burn
rate bill and the stand of the Nebraska
delegation In congress on that measure.
The resolution was Introduced by 11. M.
Wells of Crete and at once A. L. Gale of
the Lincoln Star rose to a point of order
that the resolution had not been reported
to the resolutions committee and there
fore the motion was out of order. Presi
dent Donovan promptly ruled with Mr.
Gala and no discussion followed.
Mr. Wells' resolution was as follows:
Whereas, President Roosevelt. In his
Inaugural address, ably advocated the
passage of a bill enlarging the acope and
powers of the Interstate Commerce com
mission, and.
Whereas. In accordance with his recom
mendation the bill known as the Hepburn
rate bill has been framed, introduced and
passed the lower house of congress. Is now
pending In the I'nted States senate, and Is
a measure which. If enacted Into law, will
be of great and lasting benefit to the
agrtcutural, stock-raining and shipping In
terests of this country, as well as to the
general public. It requires publicity: It
practically makes Impossible the pernicious

At the morning session addresses were de
tlvered by Richard L. Metcalfe and J. C.
geacrest. These two talked about the rail
road advertising quritlon. the former tak
ing the "business office view" and the
latter the "editorial room view." Mr. Met

. to take a few pokes at broken down poli
ticians who allow the newspapers to do
the things which are for the benefit of the
people and then claim the credit for It and
run for office on what the newspaper has
lone, while the editor couldn't get any
office, no matter what it is.
At the afternoon session La.fe Young of
JDes Moines lectured on "Newspapers of

"I believe It Is not a concerted action to
oppose anyone," he said, "but merely a

(Irasd Island Bonds Legal.
The etfO.OtO bond issue voted by the city of
Grand Island for the erection of a high
school has been declared legal by Attorney
General Brown, who has recommended to
the auditor that he register the bonds. By
those who opposed the issue it was as
serted the board had authorised the elec
tion without waiting for a petition signed
by one-third of the voters. The other side
asserted the law specified the election could
be called by a vote of two-thirds of the
board. One section of the statutes so pro
vides and the legal department held ths
law was good.
State Vital Statistics.
Vital statistics compiled by Dr. Sward
of the board of secretaries of the State
Board of Health under the provisions of
the law enacted by the late legislature

Of the sixty-one causes of death the
largest number succumbed to infant dis
abilities, there being 889 deaths of children
under 6 years of age. The next highest

E. C. Calkins, regent of the University
of Nebraska, spoke as follows:
To us who are his neighbors th.r. m-m
be in his election a double satisiactlon
satisfaction in the fact that he is our
friend and neighbor and a greater and more
abundant satisfaction in the knowledge that
is especially equipped for an efficient
discharge of the responsible duties of that
nonoreq omce.
Ever since he met and held with even
hand the cleverest and most effective stunm
speaker that ever canvassed Nebraska for
votes tnere nas oeen no doubt of his foren
sic ability and power to meet in debate
and on equal terms the ablest public speak
ers. In the art of seeing what his hearers
saw, of feeling what they felt, and giving
voice to their emotion William L. Greene
was unsurpassed. He spun the thread of
fallacy around their wavering thought and
touched with master hand the chords of
hope and fear, of love and hate, of sym
pathy and passion, and swept them off their
intellectual feet with a torrent of eloquence
and emotion. When Norris Brown went out
to meet this Goliath of debate there were
some who feared for his success, but the
Sixth district well knows and will long re

the web of sophistry and with what quick
resource and ready art he constructed with

But it is not aione as a debater and a
lawyer that Norris Brown has distinguished
himself. Probably no man could meet suc

hensive knowledge of political questions
and the affairs of state, and he has shown
in his public addresses an extended crann
of political history and an insight Into
public questions which rounds out 'and
completes his qualifications fur the office
rot which we support him. .
Prof. C. A. Murch of the State Normal
school addressed tha meeting as follows:

Hon. Samuel E. Bassett, former state
bend commissioner, said:
It Is not alone enough that the man
chosen to represent the people is willi:nr
to serve the people, is anxious to serve
the people. In order to properly serve the
people he must know the people, their
wishes, their desires, their ways of living
and mode of thought, their resources, thi
difficulties that hedge them about, in order
to be helpful In lessening those difficulties
or entirely removing them.
It goes without saying that he should be
a man of honesty and integrity, having
the full confidence of the people; but he
should also be a growing man. a prCgrer
sive man, for Nebraska Is a growing and
progressive state, a stste with untold re
sources yet undevelopxi, and only such a
man ca.n keep step with, can keep
of the rapid march of ever ts which affect
our Interests both as a state and a na
tion. Such a man is Norris Brown, in
whose interests we have this day assem
bled. Less than six years ago he was ap
pointed deputy attorney general, and so
well and faithfully did he perform the
duties Incumbent upon him that he was
the unanimous choice of his party as candi
date for attorney general, to which office
he was elected at the last general election.
As attorney general he became not only
the legal adviser of the people of the
state, but the defender of their tights as
well. Questions arose involving not only
large financial interests, but principles of
vitsl importance to all the people of the
state, questions which involved the rights
of the people as against the organized
greed and graft of a few individuals. In
all forms of government, whether It be
local, state or national, there is no more
important principle involved than the right
to leyy and collect taxes for the support
of the government, for the revenues thus
collected are the life-blood of the govern
ment. The attorney general was called
upon to defend the revenue laws of the
state, tn determine that In the valuation
snd assessment of property and the collec
tion of taxes the corporations had the same
rights, the same privileges, no more, no

Dr. E. C. Scott won the support of intelligent women when he originated his famous
prescriptions, because they are pure medicines and are free from all elements that produce
drug habits and leave bad after effects.
E-LIM-I-NO overcomes Weakness and Depression without using alcohol, whik y,
wine, or strichnine stimulants. E-llm-i-no acts by cleaning poisonous waste products from
the blood and thus restores the circulation.
E-LIM-I-NETS Cure Chronio Constipation without the continued use of physic
They are a delight to all thus afflicted.
E-LIM-I-NA-TUM Stops Pain and Relieves Soreness without the use of opium,
morphine, cocaine, or other narcotics. E-lim-l-na-tum acts by dissolving the poisons that
are settling in the joint and tissues and causing pain.
