(From a Staff Correspondent.)
1 LINCOLN, June 1 (Special.) A stir was
created at the state House today by the
report that the antl-pasa regulations and
the rule requiring state officers to present
receipts for railroad fare had been rudely
battered by the Board of Public Lands
and Buildings and Bute Auditor Searle. It
was reported 'that Warder Beemer of the
penitentiary had been allowed a claim for
taking a prisoner to Wayne county with
out the formality of a receipt showing
that he had paid cash for railroad fare.
AS Auditor Bearle had formerly ruled that
railroad fare would not be allowed unless
receipts were forthcoming, everybody
pricked up their ears In expectation of a
throwing down of the bara.
"It la true the claim has been allowed."
said Auditor 8arle. ""but the warden pre
sented a receipt for his fare to Wayne
-county and explained that on the way
bark he rode on a freight train and It was
hot convenient to get a receipt. He made
ath that he had expended the money on
the, return trip. I believed that, he could
be placed on his honor for $4.20 and al
lowed the full claim. The old rule requlr
Ing receipts Is still In force, but whenever
a proper showing has been made that rail
road fare has been paid on official trips I
will allow such claims. I allowed a similar
claim for the sheriff of Dawes county."
The auditor said the receipt showed that
the warden had paid the fare of himself
and prisoner to Wayne county and had
paid his own far back to Lincoln.
to assess or how to assess It. tie must
use his own Judgment under the advice
of the county attorney.
Mr. Funkhouser and Mr. Llndley con
tended that It would be a gross Injustice
to tsx them upon their capital stock and
surplus, but thought that the best way to
settle the matter pnd dispose of It for all
time would be to allow the assessor to go
shead snd after the assessment had bean
made attack It In the courts.

Insurance Deputy John I Pierce has dls
covered bogus Insurance contracts In ex-
Istene In Nebraska. They are Issued by
men who erect lightning rods and purport
to guarantee the owners of property

mouth and purport to Indemnify them In

A close examination of the printed con-
, tracts has csused Mr. Pierce to make this
"An examination f the document showed
that It not only was 'not an Insurance

being a guaranty agreement Is concerned,
snd that It was not a valid, binding con
tract which can be enforced at law.
Treasarer Xot Robbed.
The report that Treasurer Mortensen had

position to the plan of not expressing a
choice for United States senator went to
the floor of the convention, though no
oppoattlon was attempted by the repub

gram. Ex-Supervisor Gsllsgher Insisted
on a motion that the convention express
Its preference for fnlted States senator,
snd attempts to avoid a vote by moving
to lay on the table snd moving to ad
journ were, after considerable discussion,
withdrawn, and the motion to take prefer
ence was defeated by a vote of about 1 to 1.
Ths resolutions demanded, however, that
the republican candidate for senator be
settled by the state convention and so In
structed Its delegation. They also demand
a strict sntl-pass lsw, endorse the Stste
Railway commission, demand powera to
the commission to flx. adjust and regulate

regulation of the Hepburn bill on Inter
state traffic, endorse the sdmlnlstratlon of
President Roosevelt and the state admin
istration, approve the action of the at
torney general of the state In enforcing

passage of a law prohibiting any corpora
