Btate Journal company to Recover forfeits free postage stamps to the senators voted
for the failure of the Company to deliver
back to the senate printed bills three days
after receiving the copy was rescinded. ;
The original resolution called forth a state
ment from the Btate Journal, calling at
tention to the fact that it had had - the
qpntract most of the time for thirty years
and bad no been required to live up to Its
terms. It declared under present circum
stances It was Impossible to carry out the
terms of the contract.
In his resolution today Senator Epperson
says the senate has other remedies to pro
tect the state so far as the present session
Is concerned. The receipts showing when
copy was delivered and when the bills
were returned at former sessions, which
would be material evidence for the state,
have been destroyed, according to the res
olution, and It would be difficult to main
tain a suit tn court.
Just what method will be taken. If any.
Is not Indicated In the resolution. It has
been suggested the amount due could be
withheld from the payments made to the
Journal company for printing done during
ths session. As the state could not be
sued, the action of the legislature would
be final.
Jto Stamp Craft
The senate, by action taken today, has
declared, while It la willing the house of
representatives should Indulge In the so-
down. The only serious ODnoeitlon to any
bill was to the one Introduced by Burns
making county, district and supreme judges
ineligible to any except judicial offices.
At the beginning of the session Burns
of Lancaster Introduced a resolution re
questing the Nebraska delegation In con
gress to oppose the ship subsidy bill on
the ground it favors certain Interests and
is not In the Interests of the people. The
resolution went over a day.
Epperson of Clay offered a memorial from
10 of his constituents favoring his bill to
place telephone companies under the control
of the Railway commission. The attempt
of the judiciary committee to ' have In
deftntely postponed S. F. 140, by Ald
rlch, providing for a commission to pro
pose amendments to the constitution, failed
at leaet for the present, and the senate at
the request of Aldri'ch recommitted the bill
tor further action.
Epperson's motion to rescind the former
action directing the attorney general to be
gin suit against the State Journal to re
cover penalties for the late delivery of
printed bills carried without opposition.
Ths senate then went into the considera
tion of bills on final passage. The follow
ing bills were passed:
H. R. 52 Providing for the appropriation
of $20,000 to pay the expenses ol the legislature.

follows: v -
Gentlemen: You are doubtless aware that
within recent years the federal government
has given much attention to the conserva
tion of natural forests and also has sought
to stimulate tree growth In prairlo regions
bv the establishments of forest reset ves.
Three of these reserves have been .located
In Nebraska and are known as the Dismal
river, the Niobrara and the Nrth Platte
reserves, respectively. My Information Is
that they are situated in the counties of
Jilalne, Grant, Cherry, Thomas and Mc
pherson. The act making appropriations for the na
tional Department of Agriculture, approved
June 40, liMi. (34 U. S. Statutes, 884) contains
the following provision:
"That 10 per centum of all money received
from each forest reserve within any fiscal
year, including the- year ending June 3,
lWti, shall be paid at the end thereof by the
secretary of the treasury to the estate or
territory in which rld reserve Is situated,
to be expended as the state or terrltortil
legislature may prescribe for the benefit of
the nubile schools and roads or the county
or counties In which the forest reserve Is
situated; Provided, That when any forest
resorve is In more., than one state or terri
tory tho distributive share to eich from the
proceeds of said reFerve shall be propor
tional to Its area therein: And. prcvlded
further. That there shall not be paid to
any state or territory for any county an
amount equal to more than per centum or
the total Income of such county from all
other sources,".
in harmony with tha provisions quoted
I have received frOm thexn'udltor of the
Treasury department Warrant for $790.37.
being Nebraska's proportionate share - of
the Income from the, forest reserves within
the state for the fiscal year.. 1906, which I
have paid Into the state treasury to the
credit of the forest- reserve fund. The
federal statute referred to makes It plain
that this money is to be expended for tho
"benefit of the public schools and public
roads of the eounty .or counties rn which
the forest reserve. Is situated," to be dis
bursed as the legislature may prescribe.
Refore these funds ' can be available for
the several counties participating It will be
necessary for your honorable body to pre
scribe the details of expenditure, and It Is
for that purpose thav I call your attention
to the matter.' 'understand that the state's

LOS ANGELES, Cal., ' Jan. 28. -In at
tempting to aecure the quushlns of two
Indictments containing- alxty-elg-ht counts
against tha Santa Fe Railway company,
recently returned by the federal grand
Jury, attorneys for the railroad company
today set up a claim, which, if it should
be sustained by the court, would . prove
of far-reaching- consequence. They as
serted that for sixty days lasf year, be
tween June Wand August SO, the country
was without any Interstate commerce law
whatever. They argued that by the pass
age of the Hepburn law all existing laws
were annulled, and by the suspension of
the operation of the former act for sixty
days the country was deprived of any
Interstate 'commerce law for that period.
Judge Welborn took the matter under ad
visement for one week.
