COMMITTEE WAY DRAFT PARTY MEASURES
Proposition to Appoint Joist Com
mittee to Draw Bllla Carrying
Oat Fledges of Repub
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
IJNTOLN, Dee. . (gpeclal.)-Nearly all
the members of the legislature have se
lected their seats and have secured quartor
In Lincoln for the -winter. It la believed
that the members will meet Saturday or
the following- Monday preceding Tuesday,
January I, the day of the opening- session.
The preliminary meeting- la customary for
the purpose of giving- the majority nwmbrj
ample opportunity to agree on officer. The
late la usually adopted at this meeting-, so
that no misunderstanding may take place
on the floor of the two houses. The caucus
agreement la Invariably carried out and
thus friction or delay In organization Is
avoided. There Is considerable talk among
the members of delegating to a committee !
comprising ' liiemtn-ra of IxiLli lamsca ' the I
work of drafting the Important measures
that are pledged by the republican plat-
form. This plan worked well In 1P03. when
the pew revenue law was formulated by a
Joint committee. The comm'ttee was quite
large and It found trouble In agreeing on
the tsrms of the bill, and finally the most
Important part of the bill was redrafted
by a subcommittee. It was adopted by
the republican caucus and thereafter no
Important changes were made in committee
of the whole.
Judge E. P. Holmes of Lincoln has spent
considerable time on a bill providing for
Indeterminate sentences. The bill Is now
complete and will be Introduced In the
legislature. Judge Holmes has been on the
district bench for many years and has
taken a deep Interest In criminal proceed
ings. Plans to Print Senate Journal.
Several members of the senate have ex
pressed a desire to have the senate Journal
printed each day, to be laid on the desks
cf members. Instead of following the recent
custom of making mimeograph copies. The
printed copies can be bound at the end of
the session and thus the senate Journal can
be printed as the session proceeds and will
be complete at the end of the session with
the exception of the Index. This custom
la followed in -many states, hut It Is feared
the expense or. printing- a- rush order, the
work being done at nlKht. may be found
too high to please the members. The plan
will save the usual appropriation at the end
of the session of about Jl.JoO to the secre
tary for compiling the Journal. It Is well
known, that the secretary mukes copies of
the dally Journal as the session proceeds
and has a complete copy ready for the
printer at the end of the-session. Once,
when the copy was destroyed by Are In the
hands of a printing house; the state board
called for new bids for making a copy from
the secretary of state's oopy to take the
place of the one destroyed, the secretary
and others bid on the work. The competi
tion was fierce among the" bidders, and
finally the secretary quietly handed one
of the prospective bidders a carbon copy
that he had up his sleeve and told the
prospective bidder to beat the others at all
hazards. ' His advice was followed, and the
hidden copy kept by the secretary after the
session closed wai utilised. The successful
bidder put In a few days in the office of
the secretary of state copying from ths
omcl-il -record and soon thereafter an
nounced that the desired copy, for the
printer was ready. . ,
Nebraska's Prise- Itecrs.
The representatives of ttn State Unl
- versity Agrlcullurul col. eg who attended
the International Live Slock alio at
Chicago havs returned and feel satisfied
with the prices won by the university. The
Nebraska people who were there were
Dean E. A. Bur-.iett. Prof. H. R. Smith,
Instructor A. F. Msgdanx, Dr. A. F. Peters
and Dr. J. H. Gain. Of ' the nine steers
exhlbltei by Nebraska university, six
were winners. The total prize money was
1450, which added to totat of previous years,
makes the sum won by Nebraska tl.&OO.
At the recent show Nebraska won the
college championship of all breeds and
ages on Ruby, the steer from which most
was expected by those Interested in the
exhibit. It was said by many that had the
Chicago Judg-t been more careful Ruby
would have won the grand championship-
prize. The Chicago Judge's opinion was not
that of the English' Judge, Turner, who
, placed Ruby above many others that were
.. adjudged superior to him. On the first
; day he was debarred by the decision of thu
man from Chicago "from competing for the
grand championship. Ruby sold at
higher price than any of the others ex
hibited, bringing 15 cents a pound, live
. weight, a total of K7S.
Dictator, a 10-months-old grade calf, won
the championship over the grade Angus of
all agrs. Valet, a Shorthorn yearling, won
. second prise In his class. Nebraska also
won the first and second prizes In the
carcass contest. In carcass Judging, firm
ness of flesh and marbling are the points
considered. Steers arc scientifically fed
so that the Ideal In thla respect may be
Only two of the steers exhibited will
be returned ' to Nebraska. Seven young
steers were bought by the bureal of ant

SMOOTHEST NTHE WORLD
Pickpockets In Guatemala Accounted
the Slickest Touchers In the
"I once thought the New York pickpocket
about the slickest In the world," said a
detective sergeant Just back from Central
America with a prisoner; "but the Guate
mala operators have our local artists
beaten to an omelette.
"I was standing at the corner of one of
the main streets of a Guatemala city about
noon one afternoon, watching the handful
of people abroad. A prosptrous looking
man passed me. I took particular notice to
him, because he appeared to lie well deco
rated with Jewelry. He had heavy finger
rings, a massive raw gold watch chain and
ear-rings of a curious pattern. I was think
ing how he would delight a New Tork pick
pocket as he halted a few yards away to
look into his wallet, a fat, bulky affair.
"Just then a young man about six yards
distant gave a shout and ran toward the
man with the wallet and ;ewfry. The lat
ter started and stood perplexed for Just
about two seconds. In that time I saw the
young man run Into Jilm, knock him down
by the force of the collision and race to
ward ma. A he came I saw him stow away
the man's watch, several rings and the
"I shouted and made a spring for him.
He ran Into me, dodged a swing I made at
him and was across the street in an ln-
j conceivably short time. I started after
him and saw him run Into a third man.
The third man tried to hold him but he
might as well have tried to catch a bunch
of forked lightning. The man was away
and up an alley In two minutes after he
had run into, the first of us.
"When we compared notes It was found
that he had skinned the first man's fingers
of rings, got one of the ear-rings, the wallet
and the watch and chain. The third man
had lost a handsome pin from his tie and
his watch and chain.
" "What did you lose?" they asked me.
" '1 haven't lost anything,' I said. Then
one of them pointed at my tie, which had
"I found that I, too, had lost a wallet, a
stick pin, my watch and chatn, I got my
property back through the chief of police.
He sent for the chief of the gang and made
him hold up the young operator for the
goods. The operator was very obliging
when he heard I was a detective from New
York. He wanted to know if I could assist
him In working In New York, and how the
pickpockets operated In this city. If he
ever comes here it is all day with many a
