wh'.lo they were assessed at 15 per cent of
the total assessment of the state, as shown
by the auditor's report for W&, and prac
tically paid 15 per cent of all the state

Example of I'afalraeas.
"A splendid example of the Iniquity and
unfairness of the old system has just oc
curred. Recently the Northwestern system
purchased three blocks of ground In
Omaha at a coat approximating $3:0.(00.
Prior to this time this entire property. In
addition to its state, county and school
district taxes, paid a municipal tax Ilka
other - local property on Its entire valua

of Equalisation will Increase the total Val-
uatlon of that port of the Northwestern ,
system which purchased this property by
the price paid for It, the amount of taxes
contributed by this property for. the state,
county and school district purposes will
probably approximate the amount hereto
fore contributed, but the amount of taxes
contributed for municipal purposes will ba

Into the senate a' bill of far-reaching In
fluence upon the saloon business In Omaha,
South Omaha and Lincoln. It prohibits
the taking out of suloon licenses by brew
ers, breweries, distilleries or any manu
facturers of liquor In the name of any one
else and prevents manufacturers from In
teresting themselves In any way In the se
curing of licenses by any. person. The
bill will prevent running saloons by brew
eries In the name of agents and will make
only bona fide owners and operators of sa
loons eligible to secure licenses.
Another feature of the bill which will
affect Omaha and South Omaha la a pro
vision that In cities of over 26,000 Inhab
itants no mors than one saloon to '1,000
population shall be licensed. The bill pro
vldes for the numbering of each license
consecutively In the order of Issuance and
declares all licenses Issued after the pro
portlonate number has. Issued null and void.
It Is provided any taxpayer may go Into
the district court to enforce this law. The
penalty for violation Is a fins of from
$tt0 to $1,000.
That the fight of two years ago to pre
vent legislation hostile to the practice of
healing by Christian Scientists wllUbe re
peated this year Is assured by the Intro
duction of a bill by Senator ' Wilson of
Pawnee, the effect of which will be to re
quire Christian Science healers to ' be li

From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. ' W.-l8pecll. Immedi
ately after th house opened. Speaker Net
tleton brought up the stamp act and threw
the membtrs Into a fit of laughter by
telling them that a requisition had been
made for stamps and the answer had been,
there wss no appropriation with which to
buy them. "You will have- to pass a bill
before we can get them," he concluded.
The resolutions Introduced yesterday
providing; that the speaker appoint four
committees of seven members each to1 act
with like committees from the senate In
making up bills, covering the main points
In the platform, were adopted. Over one
only was there any fighting, the motion to
appoint a committee to get up a statewide
primary bill. McMullen had, In a resolu
tion to have the standing committee on
elections of the house act with ths senate
committee, and Farley of Hamilton moved
the speaker name the committee of seven.
The latter motion prevailed after McMullen.
had made several talks on his resolution.
In one of his speeches 'McMullen said:
"It Is my position that we follow the plat
form generally but not specifically In mat
ters of this kind." McMullen Is opposed
to a statewide primary, but desires a
primary which will not Include the nomina
tion of state officers. He said: "I think
I am consistent with ths platform and
there Is no reason to. think my position is
influenced by any corporation, Inasmuch as
I Introduced . the same .measure two years
ago, at which .time the railroads were In
control in the house. If a majority of the
committee reports for a statewide primary
I will support the measure In the main.''
. In his talk for the Farley resolution Ned
Brown of Lancaster made the statement he
was for following the pledges In the plat
form and he said he would not be satisfied
with any primary bill which is not state
wide In Its scope.
The first discussion of the morning came
on a motion by Hansen of Merrick to havo
the movers of the motions providing for
the appointment of Joint committees waive
the courtesy of being named as chair
men of the committees, which Is usually
the custom. McMullen of Oage at once
requested an explanation of tho motion.
Hansen explained It had practically been
put up to the speaker to name either the
men who made the motion for the commit
tee orthe chairman of the standing com
mittees as chairman of the Joint commit
tee, therefore his motion was to relieve
the speaker of any embarrassment. Clarke
of Douglas seconded the motion and waived
his right to be named a chairman of any
McMullen was thoroughly aroused over
the resolution and said it was an unusual
resolution, to say the least. He believed
the man who had studied a question- suf
ficiently and had become sufficiently Inter
ested In It to offer a resolution regarding
it should have the courtesy of being either
chairman or a member of the committee.
Barnes of Douglas thought the resolution
unusual and out of place. Marsh was for
the resolution and Ned Brown was for It.
The debate was getting warm when the
speaker called Van Housen to the chair
and. talked. ' He informed the house that
he had no authority to name the chairman
of any of the Joint committees Inasmuch
as the committees would organize them
selves after they met. Ths resolution was
then laid on the table,
A motion by telnauei''6f pawnee requrr-
lng cdmmlttees to "notify the Introducer of
a measure when he measure Is to ba die-,
cussed, was ccrleJ, -.
Cono of Saundors introduced the follow
ing resolution: ' ,j : .
Be it resolved. - That,' the committee on
mines and minerals-be' requested to draft
and Introduce a bill prohibiting the citi
zens of this stata from Inventing In m.ncs
and mining stock outside of Nebraska.
The speaker ruled the resolution Ouf of
order because he said such a thing was Im
possible. It made the house laugh any
Cone's motion to have the dilly Journal
printed as It is to appear In the published
Journal at the end of the session was re
ferred to the commttte on printing. ' -Hawer's
resolution to have all - bills
amendltng the statutes refer to Cobbey s
statutes was amended by Fries of Howard
to Include Wheeler's statutes and adopted.
On motion of Ned Brown of Lancaster it
was ordered that two ventilators be in
stalled in the house st not to exceed a
cost of $7$. On roll call Marlay only voted
against It.
At the afternoon session a motion to. ad
journ from Friday until Monday at t p. m.
was voted down. It was decided to adjourn
Saturday noon until 2 p. m. Monday. Con.
sent was given the senate to adjourn today
until Monday.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan 10. (Special.) The morn
ing session of the senate was taken up
largely In unraveling tangles Into which
the senators wound themselves In two mat
ters. When the Journal was read King of
Polk called attention to the resolution of
fered the day before by Thomas of Doug
las providing all citations In bills should be
to the Cobbey statutes. The resolution em
powered the secretary to change the cita
tions where the compiled statutes had been
referred to. Senator King said hs thought
any change made by the secretary or his
force would Invalidate the bill, and under
the proper head he moved to reconsider the
Thomas resolution. The motion carried,
and Thomas then offered to strike out the
objectionable passage. McKesson of Lan
caster thought both statutes should be re
ferred to and offored ah amendment 'Jo
that effect, and Epperson moved a substi
tute to allow' the Committees to change the
citations). King called attention to the
fact tho matter was covered by a rule" and
ho thought It should be referred to the
rules committee. The subject wss becom
ing complicated, and Wilson of Pawnee
came to the rescue with a motion to lay
the whole matter on the table, which was
The second, entanglement came about
through a confusion of two requests from
the house, one for a Jptnt committee to
consider the printing of the messages of
the-outgolng and the Incoming governors,
and the other for a Joint committee, to
take up Senator Thomas' proposal to print
the Journal dally. Both requests were
compiled with. I
The disposition of a number of the sen
ators to. economise was brought out by a
resolution offered by Aldrich ' of Butlar
directing the committee on public. lands
and buildings and the other committees
having to do with state institutions to
make, their visits to these Institutions
within the next ten days. He explained
bis purpose was to have all of ths Jun
keting: trips pver with by the time the
busy part of the session was reached.
King of Polk asked the resolution go
over. one day. He said he was In doubt
as to the advisability of sendlng"all cf the
committees around t the public buildings
at' the expense of the stats when . tho
work might all be done by a Joint com
mittee of both houses at a much smaller
expense. Sackett of Oage also spoko In
favor of a Jptnt committee. At the re
quest of Senator King the resolution went

motion was made to adjourn for three
days, but this was ruled but. Finally a
committee Was appointed -to confer with
the house, but before It could get Into
action a committee from the house ap
peared report the house had decided
not to adjourn until Baturday noon. .Finally
It wab decided to request permission of
the house for the senate to adjourn until
Monday, but before the request could be

and announced the house had already given
Its 'consent Hs was received with' cheers.
The senate also got Into complications
when It came to considering the communi
cations from the. house, reporting that body
had appointed the Joint- committees on pri
mary, railway commission, terminal taxa
tion, free pass legislation' and one covering
the several planks of the republican plat
form. The -last mentioned was taken up
first and Aldrich -moved to refer It to the
committee on Standing committees. The
complications became so - Intricate that
Aldrich suggested It go over until Monday.
Ths discussion of another of the communi
cations was cut off "by the motion of Wil
cox to adjourn until Monday at I o'clock.

of Lancaster got considerable pleasure out
of the entanglements some of the so-called
progressive senators got Into during ths
proceedings. "Tbeae fellows have got tb;
closest organisation they bave ver had In
tho senate and still they can't run things
tight," bs said gleefully, after listening to
in Popularity and Esteem, and is ACCEPTED
some of the senator's attempts to extricate
themselves from one of the parliamentary
entanglements that marked Thursday's
session. Sens tor McKesson of Lancaster
nl' declares, "the other fellows," refer
ring to those who opposed his motion
Wednesday to appoint certain senators
members of tho Joint committee on railroad
legislation, "had an organisation." He
said they already had a "slate" picked out

In Dodson's substitute motion.
A test vote to determine accurately who
belong to the "progressive" and who to

to fight the report of the commit tee. This
is taken by the "progressives'' as nn indi
cation the "conservatives" are not anxious
for a test Just now. 1
