tlons and for other purposes shall be made
In specific sums lusleud of by levy, with
the exception of those Institutions which
now receive their' appropriations by levy,
ha been mads a special .order for next
Tuesday morning at 10:30 o'clock. When
Tucker palled the matte. up this morning
there was a division on the question, and
v while none of those who opiwsed the
adoption of the resolution offered any rea
sonable . argument against tt, Tucker ac
cepted the suggestion of EUer of Washing,
ton to make it a special order. Walsh ex
plained to the house the purpose of the
solution was. not to handicap any insti
tution by a lack of funds, but to compel
all Institutions to say exactly In dollars
and tents what was necessary for main
tenance. Ned Brown and Elmer Brown of
Lancaster, of course, objected to the adap
tion of the measure, while Barnes and
Tucker of Douglas spoke for It. These
men believed that to let down the bars
for the allowance of Vk-inlll levy for the
state fair will result In a general rush for
a levy by the state normal schools and
later, by other Institutions, and that the
only way to put the state on a business
bails Is to have each Institution superin
tendent and each board of managers say
exactly how much money is needed and
have It specifically appropriated'.
On the other hand. Secretary Mellor of
the State Board of Agriculture Is arguing
that Inasmuch as the estimated expendi
tures will exceed the estimated receipts
during the blennlum the only way the state
fair ran be md- a pernnnent fixture In
Nebraska la by a special levy.
Among the bills" Introduced this morning
was a measure in both the house and
senate which provided that insurance com
panies appealing claims to the federal
court should forfeit their right to do busi
ness In this state.
The revenue committee of the house
cleaned up Its slate this morning by re
ferring Clarke's terminal taxation bill to

Employers' Liability
The judiciary committee of
the house
listened to Frank S. Howell of Omaha talk
on the Cone employer liability hill this
afternoon and accepted a substitute .bill
from him endorsed by Mr. Cone, removing
the $5,CC0 limit to the liability of a cor
poration. The bill Is practically, the same
now as the bill introduced in the senate
and endorsed by the Brotherhood of Hail
road Conductors and the three measures
will be considered together. .
Following is, the bill which Mr. Howell
drew at the request of Representative Cone:

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jan. 17. (Special.) The senate
today spent considerable time discussing
Junketing trips, rules relutlng to em
ployes and listening to the reports of stand
ing committees. The session began at 10
o'clock and wes opened by prayer by the
chaplain President Pro Tern Saunders was
in the chair.. The judiciary committee re
ported favorable to these bills and they
were placed on the general hie:
B. F. 21 Permitting the construction of

employer, the acceptance of which would
affect his employer's business or his rela
tion to his employer's popularity, known
as the anti-tlpping bill.
The committee recommended for indefinite
postponement two other bills on the subject
of adultery.
I.atta of Burt started some oratory when
the" committee recommended his bill pro
viding for a lucent passenger fare be re
committed to the railroad committee. He
charged this waa "horse play" due to the
fact he was a member of the minority.
This charge brought hot shot from Aldrlch
and King, members of the committee. They
declared partisanship had nothing to do
with the report. Several other bills of the
Fame nature had been introduced and It
was the opinion of the committee all of
jhem should be considered at once. After
the explanation I-atta rose and said he had
been laboring under a mlsspprehenslon and
be consented his bill should go to the rail
road committee.
The committee on Iruane hospitals re
ported favorably on Root's bill giving the
governor authority to appoint and dis
charge the superintendent of the hospital
for the insane at his discretion. At present
the governor's action may be reviewed by
the Board pf Public Lands and Buildings.
It required almost an hour to discuss
junketing trips and at the end of that
time It was decided to refer the matter to
the committee on public lands and build
ings, which Is to report bark to the senate
a piaa for making the trips and the num
ber of each committer to go on each trip.
This waa followed by a long and com
plicated discussion on a method of con
trolling the employes. Wllsey of Fron
tier called up his motion placing them In
charge of the secretary of the ec:Uo.
Thomas proposed to allow ths committed
on employes to have charge of them, but
this was voted down and Wtlsey's motion
Anally prevailed. Wilcox of Thayer ae-
cured the pimeaareVf' " resolntlfln to de
duct pay from the salaries of employes,
for every d:iy- they are absent without
leave. -' " f

vent his hearing cases under the statutes.

Wastes of Men In Mills Advanced and
Other Espect Bliullar
PITTSBCRO, Jan. 17.-The American
Sheet and Tin Plate company announces an
Increase of 2 per cent in wages to all hot
mill tonnage employes' In tin mills. The
Increase went Into effect January 1. Al
though flat wage scales are signed with
its nonunion sheet and tin plate workers,
the company has decided to grant these
employes an advance in wages on a eliding
basis, as justlliad by the present selling
price of tin plate and sheets.
It is probable that sheet mill tonnage
men will receive an advance of I per cent
about March 1, dependent on the average
selling price at that time. The number of
employes affected will be about 7.0UU tin
mill and6,0u sheet mill men.
LINCOLN. Jan. 17.-Sreelal Telegram.)
In the presence of only relatives of the
two families Miss Florence Putnsm of
Lincoln and Mr. Gould C. Diets of Omaha
were married at 8 o'clock at the home of
Mrs. A. M. Putnam, the bride's mother,
521 South Twelfth street.
While the guests were confined strictly
to relatives and the ceremony was simple,
tho function was one of the most elaborate
ever held In Lincoln. The decorations were
on a very lavish scale and tho prominence
of both Mr. Diets and Miss Putnam and
their wide acquaintance over the slate
made it an affair of ttnustial Interest. No
reception was held after the wedding. The
relatives present numbered between fifty
and sixty. Prominent in the decorations
were southern smilax, palms and cut
In the parlor where the wedding service'
was pronounced ropes of smilax hung from
the celling on three sides of the room,
Uko Turkish portieres, and were massed
heavily over the arches and chandeliers.
On the third side between the windows waa
a heavy mass of green entirely covering
the background. At the base of this muss
there was a profusion of lilies. A bower
of green extended to the second floor and
through this the brltle and groom descended
attended only by two little ribbon bearers.
Master Earl porter of Lincoln,' cousin
of the bride, and Master Howard Diets Nel
son of .Omaha, nephew of the groom, both
dressed In tuxedo suits. ' Rev. J. W. Jones
of Grace Methodist church stood: In front
