sion bill, H. R. 90S, which the house began
In the committee of the whole as soon as
the session opened, it developed there Is a
serious difference ot opinion regarding the
mode of prooedure to be taken by the coiy
mlselon In fixing rates. The bill s now
drawn provides the commission shall make
a "complete" schedule of rates as soon as
practicable and put the same Into effect.
The railroads then. If they choose, may
appeal from those rates. Ned Brown Is of
tne opinion the hearing should come nrt.
He therefore offered an amendment to the
effect that the commission shall prepare. a
scneauie ' (not complete necessarily) and
then before putting the rates Into effect
give me railroads an opportunity to be
heard on (he matter. His argument was
In effect that the present section as drawn
Is not legal. Inasmuch as he holds the
rates filed by the railroads' are property
and property cannot be taken without due
process of law. He believes the committee
puts the horse before the cart, Speaker
Nettleton agreed with him, as did Quacken
bush of Nemaha. Walsh, who helped draft
the bill, objected strenuously to any such
change and his position was endorsed by
augias. ii was suggested that a
committee be appointed to look Into the
legality of the section and the committee
merely reported progress and without fur
ther action took up the anti-pass bill.
Annexationists Are Heard.
A delegaUon from South Omaha cone
posed qf W. W. Plaher, a merchant, and
Bruce McCulloch, a newspaper man. and
John P. Breeji from Omaha, addressed the
bouse In open session this afternoon from
1:30 to o'clock In favor of the consoli
dation of Omaha and South Omaha. The
men were not accompanied by a brass
band and neither were they flanked On all
sides by schoolma'ams or school children,
yet they were given good, attention and a
respectful hearing. Mr. McCulloch and Mr.
Flaner talked along the same lines they
had dlsouased when before the committee
on cities and town Mr. McCulloch told
of the floating population In South Omaha
which made It doubtful whether annexation
would carry If left to a vote of that-4.owh,
because, be said. It would be a question
of who could secure the floating vote of
from 1,600 to t.OOO. At the start he said
tbe friends of legislative annexation would
be handicapped by at least 1.500 votes. lu
describing some of the Conditions In the
packing dty, Mr.. McCulloch said .one brew
ery owned thirty-eight saloons and at least
two members of the city council owned
'1 am sorry I have not a picture of that
council to show you." he said.
Mr. Fisher told of tbe line between
Omaha and South Omaha being only im
aginary and described again that It Is a
vcity of 16,000 people absolutely dependent
en Omaha for everything In the way of
llaHjt, water and street oar aervioe.' i
MY Breca discussed tbe legality' of leg
islative annexation and cited numerous de-
dalonsto support His contention that the
bill nope ruling la a legal document and
will stand the tests of the courts, tie be
lieved the greatest good would be done
to the greataat number by the passage of
May Set kjn Two-Cent Rill.
Oovernor Bheldan In all probability will
not alga tbe 1-cent rate bill and neither will
be veto it. but It la understood he has de
rided to allow the Mil to become a lew
without any action n his part. This It
will do within five daya in his speecliee
during the campaign. In which he bore the
brunt of the fight,, the governor srent on
record as being opposed to a flat I-cent
rate, at the same time saying he was In
favor of this matter being left to the rail,
way commlMlon. He has not channel his
position on the question. Inasmuch, how
ever, as the legislature has so unanimously
gone on record In favor of the flat 2-rent
rate, the governor believes he should not
Veto the bill, but at the same time he does
not want to endorse the measure. The
fact that the railroads agreed to sell mile
age books at a flat 1-cent rate leads the
governor to believe they could not sustain
an action in the courts. His idea In leav
ing the matter to the railway commission
was to get the best results. He believed
some of the roads could afford to sell tick
ets at less than 1 cents a mile, while others'
probably could not sell for I cents.
Bill May Be Recalled.
The house, will attempt to g't back from
the governor H. R. Ill by Quackenbush,
the bill to Increase the fees of court re
porters. If the house doesn't get the bill
back tha governor will veto It. . It has
been discovered the bill Increases the sal
aries of the court reporters of Douglas and
Lancaster counties out of all proportion to
the work done and therefore It Is Con
sidered a bad measure. The bill went
through both bouses with very little trouble
under the guidance of Henry Waring and
Myron Wheeler, but It will have hard sled'
ding' If It Is started through again. Some
of the members who voted for It aro now
of the opinion a salary of II, B00 for about
eleven months work, regardless of fees. Is
a pretty good salary for a court reporter.
The governor likes some portions of the
bill, but Is opposed to others and unless
It Is amended to conform ,to his Ideas he
will veto It. The bill can be recalled by a
Oaaaha Cttarter Amendments.
Senator Thomas today Introduced a blU
Into the senate making some Important
changes In the Omaha charter, one of
which relates to the annexation of adjoin
ing cities and villages. Tbe bill makes the

Slftln Cfontaalttee In Senate.
The senate this afternoon Just before ad
journment voted by a large majority to
have a sifting committee to be elected
next week to go over the general file to
select the measures of general Importance
The committee Is to be recommended by
the standing committee on oommlttees and
a report was ordered by .next Wednesday.
A number of senators, Including McKesson
and Burns of Lancaster, opposed a sifting
committee at all and a few others urged
It was too early, for one,' but the majority
favored early action In order that the im
portant measures may be got out of the
way before the rush of closing' days. I
The revised county option bill, was Intro
duced in the senate today by McKesson of
Lancaster. The measure Is somewhat dif
ferent from the .one killed In both houses
several weeks ago, but Is backed- by the
same people as that one. It provides for
a special election to be held the last Tues
day in July, 18, where 20 per cent ot the
voters petition tor It If the county goes
dry no saloons may be licensed, except In
cities of t.OOO or over, which may vote li
cense If they wish. If the county goes wet
licensing boards still have the power to
refuse licenses If they desire to. Eleotlon
under the act may not be held oftensr
than once In four years.
McKesson also has a plan for the estab
lishment of a new normal school at Lin
coln. Hs Introduced a resolution today au
thoring the acceptance of the old Western
Ntfrmal scjiool building by the 'state and the
establishment of a normal school therein.
Oraln men will be Interested In a bill In
troduced by McKesson which provides all
grain corporations must mall to the labor
commissioner every day a list of the prices
paid by them on that day. The labor com
missioner may publish these prices ss he
may see fit It Is claimed the bill will
prevent discriminatory prices In- different
parts of the state. .
Senator Sackett wants an Investigation
of Nebraska Insurance companies and to
day Introduced a bill providing, for an In
vestigation to be held beginning nest May.
His resolution provides for an Investigation
committee of nine members, four from the
senate and Bye from the house.
pmprlate resolutions next Monday St
convening ot the senate. .
A bill Introduced Into the senste by
Burns of Lancaster provide a change In
the methods of granting street railway
franrhlses and places all street railways
under the Jurisdiction of the state railway
commission. Franchises are to be grantoH
for certain definite lines which mustv bo
described specifically. The railway com
mission le given power p regulate street
car rates and fares snd other matters per
taining to the companies.
The house turned down a motion by
Clarke to make his terminal taxation bill
a special order for Thursday. The prl
mery bill had already been made a specUl
order for Wednesday, which is also the
date the Wilson resolution on the unit
system of assessing railroads Is to be
discussed. When Clarke made his motion
the house was in no mood for further
special orders and on a rising vote the
motion waa lost.
