entries to Lincoln to find the committee
cannot meet at tha time set, so he waits
over until the nest day. The same thing
happens again. Then the second bill comes
up and again he Is sent for and again the
first performance la repeated, so the su
perintendent has to spend much of his.
time tier when he should be at his Insti
tution looking after tha work he Is paid
to look after. '
"I would suggest that the house and sen
ate committee hold Joint sessions when a
tats superintendent Is sent for to explain
the reason for certain approprlatlone, have
the time of the meeting fixed and, hold
the meeting at that time. One trip could
do all the work. This could ba done very
easily and when tha senate committee
came to act on the measure It would have
the advantage of the explanation made to
the Joint committee. .
"Of course. It is not necessary rliat the
superintendent be sent for at all. If he
makes It clear In his written ststement to
the legislature what he wants, but II al
ways happens some members of the com
mittee wsnts the superintendent to noine
and explain personally the reasons for
Kettletoa at Work on Committees.
"I shall begin work on the committees
tonljrht," said Speaker Nettleton today.
"Most of the members have filed their pref
erences with me and they are being tabu
lated. No announcement of any committee
appointment will be made until It Is rend
to the legislature, and Just when that will
be 1 do not know."
Senator Millard's manipulating commit
tee has about faded away and the hotel
corridors remember It as a has-been. The
effect of the boosters has been to Inspire
tho legislators to call at the office of Nor
rls Brown and again assure him that he
was the choice of the republican state con
vention and the choice of the electors at
the Wist election for the seat used by Sen
ator Millard, and they Intend to abide by
that decision, in fact, the office of the at
torney general was crowded at times dur
ing the day by legislators.
Superintendent Hayward of the Indus
trial school at Kearney Is one superintend
ent who does not believe It Is necessary to
lobby In order to get an appropriation at
the hands of the legislature.
"I have never had any trouble getting
what the Institution needs," said Mr.
Hayward. "In times past I have filed my
report and my statement of what Is needed.
The committee to whom the matter is re
ferred has notified me If It desires any
further explanation and I have come be
fore the committee. I have never been
turned down and I have ' never had to
lobby for an appropriation. I have found
the legislators fair and generous In their
treatment of the institution at Kearney.
I ask for only what Is needed and that Is
what I get."
Flora. t for County Option.
It la generally conceded a strong fight
will be made to secure tha; enactment of
the county option law, which Is backed by
a number of temperance societies over the
state. Thomas Darnall, who acts as lob
byist for the Anti-Saloon league, Is al
ready busily engaged In Interviewing mem
bers of the legislature. Beside the county
option measure . legislation is proposed to
prevent as far as possible the Infraction
of tha spirit of the law by : tha express
companies In communities where no license
has been voted. In these prohibition com
munities tha express companies ship large
quantities of liquor consigned. "C. O. D."
The practice Is . said to ba to deliver the
packages to anyone who would sign for
tbem and pay the charges. The express
offices, it Is asserted,, in some communities,
at least, bava become drinking places and
nniih.ftnru.thi. nnn ejklrMkn wnulii twi. I
It la practically certain that soma measure
covering the matter will be Introduced.
.At the request of- the legislative commit
tee of the Order of Railway Conductors In
this state. Senator Gibson will Introduce a
bill which will carry out one of the planks
of tha republican platform. It relates tha
liability of common carriers for the In
Jury of their employes by accident. It
provides that contributory negligence shall
not ba a bar to action, but shall be left to
tha Jury to decide; that insurance or bene
fits received by the Injured employ shall
not affect his claim against the company,
but relief benefits or other aid received
from the company may be deducted from
the amount recovered. Railroad men In
all branches of the service are Interested
In the bill and It Is said will make a fight
to have It enacted.

ever, 'becausi as head of tha committee on
employes for the senate he has to act as
reception committee for a horde of office
seekers Who are trying to get on the senate
pay roll. All day Wednesday he was sur
rounded by a crowd whenever he .appeared
In public, and his only chance to di
SO work was to . lock himself In some
other senator's room. The committee
on employes announced today It would
pot fl'l any positions until the work
of tha senat demanded. This is In ac
cordance with the party'a pledge for econ
omy . of administration. The places not
provided for now will ba filled as necessity
requires In order that the pay roll may be
k'pl.dowu as small -ss possible.
. fcheldon's bill, passed by tba last legis
lature), will do a great deal toward shut
ttitg oft many of the sinecures which bave
psdilad tha pay rolls heretofore. Under
th Sheldon law tha number of employes
who. nay placed on tha senatorial pay
roll la limited to forty-eight, and the of
fices are designated In tha bill. At previous
osslona the pay roll contained tha names
of about sixty-five persons, t'nder tha old
rule the senate could employ aa many
helpers aa tha political aituatlon In th va
rious senatorial districts required.' While
this bill will effect a saving to tha tas
payors. It la not helping to lighten the
burden .- resting ou tha shoulders of the

tha fact that now every office seeker, as
well aa every legislator, walks or pays
gool, hard cash for his transportation.
Naturally, If au applicant for a petty posi
tion hod to face the expenditure of money
for tickets both ways to and from Lin
coln, he would be sure of his ground be
fore coming to Lincoln. The reduction In
the number of placo seekers . Is ths one
ray of light In the pass situation for the
legislator. And. as Mike Lee expressed It,
"Just think of the crowds that are waiting
down there In Omaha, for a telegram or a
telephone message from tha front."
The senat caucus Monday voted that
the majority members, who .had an elective
officer credited to them would not ba en
titled to any appointive officers, but the
members who had no elective officer would
ba entitled to two appointive officers. It

Hun. Jehn L. Kennedy, defeated for re
election to congress from the Second dis
trict by Gilbert M. Hitchcock, was counted
in by th speaker of the house of repre
sentative today and for a second and a
half was a congress-nan for another term.
And In correcting tb mistake Mike Lee
again sad-4ia a hui.iorwt. ItT happened
tbU way. fepcakc;' Nettleton was calling
oft th names of the successful candidates
previous to declaring' them elected and In
reading so many republicans called the
name of Kennedy. When he had con
cluded, his attention was called to th mat
ter by Senator Wllaey.
"I hardly think It right, Mr. Speaker."
he said, "even though wa have a big ma
jority to count In Mr. Kennedy when It Is
a matter of history Mr. Hitchcock was
"Yes, yes," said the speaker, "I hope the
members won't think I was trying to count
In a republican just becaus w have a
majority here. Mr. Hitchcock was elected
congreasman of the Second district. It wss
all a mistake."
"Tea, sir, the biggest mistake the people
of th Second district ever made." chimed
In Mike Lee, and th house expressed th
same sentiment by Its loud applause.
"I understand Governor Mickey went
down today and bought eight beds prepara
tory to going to housekeeping," said a
member of the upper hous today,
"He's feolish If he doesn't apply to Pres
ident Roosevelt .for a federal appointment,"
chimed In a half dosen hous members st
once, and each aeeroed to know why the
governor should stand a good c nance of ap
pointment. Speaker Nettleton la good natured and
genial; h appreciates a good jok. If these
things wer not true this incident would
never be made a matter of record. A su
preme court commissioner In commenting
on the picture of the speaker published In
The Bee this morning remarked:
"That's a good picture of th speaker, all
right, but I beliav It flatters him a little."
Th legislators have certainly Impressed
some of the keepers of rooming houses In
Lincoln with their importance. A young
man called at a rooming houae to gat quar
ters for the winter.
"If you had come earlier I . could hav
given you a room," the landlady said, "but
just this morning I rented my last room
to a couple of the congressmen. You
know congress meets here this winter.
