will' be liberally used. Benator Epperson,
In a-statement made to the senate today,
read from a compilation of appropriation
bills now before the legislature and those
which have been parsed, showing the total
to be S4.2SS.Z84. The finance committee has
rohghly estimated the income of the state
for the blennlum will be about $3,000,000.
In other words, If the expenditures of the
stats ' are to be kept within bounds the
senate will hive to reduce the appropria
tions about $1,260,000.
The finance committee Is working hard
on the problem and la holding sessions
morning, noon and night. The senate ad
journed early this afternoon until 10:10
tomorrow morning In order the give the
committee a chance to get out some more
appropriation bills. The salary bill will
come up before the committee of the whole
tomorrow and will occupy most of the dny.
The senate has already killed one of the
appropriation bills carrying $50,000 for a
dipsomaniac building at the Lincoln asy
lum, and today refused to revise It, though
both McKesson and Burns of Lancaster
made a fight to have the vote reconsidered.
Beveral other Institutions are slated to have
their requests scaled down In similar man

Through the effort of Senator Saunders
H. R. 66, ty Lee, providing that members
of the Fire and Police commission In
Omaha shall not run for office while they
are member bf the board was unceremon
iously slaughtered In the senate this morn
ing. The bill was Intended to prevent a
repetition of the conditions that prevailed
last spring when W. J. Broatch, a roam-
ber of the board, wa a candidate for the
republican nomination for mayor and, it
I asserted, used the police department to
further hi political ambitions. When the
bm was brought up Gibson moved It be
for passage and Saunders
moved It Indefinite postponement He also
maris a snaech arnJnst It declaring It' was

word and killed It. Senator Thomaa was

Wilcox ies Ltgkt.
An Incident of th. senate which should
not be allowed to be forgotten or to dl.
Ithout being made a matter of record
happened some time ago wjth th senate
and Wilcox or Thayer a th. shining fig
ures. One of the numerous Insurance bill
wa up and wa about to go through th.
committee of th. whole without trouble.
Th. gentleman from Thayer secured rec
ognition. "Mr. Chairman," h. (aid. "I would Ilk
for some on to explain thl MIL"
Aldrlch, Epperson, King and a few other
took turn at explaining. Alt sat down
and again qul.t reigned.
"Mr. Chairman." again said Wilcox. "I
till insist that th bill ha not been
explained." . .
Again the senators explained and an hour
or 'more was devoted to th bill. At th
Conclusion, Senator WHcox said:
"Mr. Chairman. I withdraw my request."

Another Incident which ought to be of
record occurred when Joe Burns went under
the limelight In a spread eagle speech about
the old soldiers. The senate was dis
cussing the game bills when Burns switched
at the sight of a comrade In the gallery
and began to talk about the old soldiers.
"How often have I seen these grand old
defenders of our glorious flag, the saviors
of our country, walking homeward with
their empty sleeves and empty pants legs
flapping In the breere." The gentleman
from Lancaster' got a round of applause
from a one-armed soldier In the gallery.
Beside signing ' the commission bill.
Governor Sheldon tonight signed H. R.
$50, making the state treasurer ex-offlclo
treasurer of the State university, and H.
R. 366,' providing a schedule of fees for the
secretary of stnte.
The railroad men tonight are worried
over the Aldrlch commodity freight rate
bill and are Importuning members to allow
the matter to go to the commission. Inas
much as the bill will not become effective
for ninety days, thsy argue there la no
necessity for its passage.
At the session tonight. Cone of Saunders,
kicked on the sifting committee report and
later Harrison, who I chairman of the
committee, took Cone to task. Both men
were willing for a scrap and started out
for that purpose, but were prevented from
getting together by a few members who
overheard their conversation.

CAUSE OF DEATH UNCERTAIN
Special Policeman mt Kansas
May Have Shot Man front
CHICAGO, March 17. The police are In
vestigating the circumstances surrounding
the death of Frank Fetten, 23 years of age,
who died today In a Chicago hospital.
They believe Fetten waa shot in Kansas
City by a special policeman employed by
Swift and Company.
Fetten left hl home here three week
ago and March IS his father received a
message from the Kansas City police say
ing that young Fetten had shot himself
with suicidal Intent. The young man was
In St. Francis" hospital, but In such a con
dition that he was unable to state the
circumstances under which he was In
jured. It was asserted by the Kansas
City officers that Fetten and the special
officer exchanged several shots and that
Fetten then turned his weapon upon him
self and Ared a bullet Into his head. Th
wound which caused the young man's death
la so situated, above the left ear, that It
la declared by the doctors and by the po
lice to be out ot the question for the young
man to have shot himself.
The coroner', physlclsn, after examining
the body of Fetten, announced no powder
burn were discovered near the wound, nor
were there any Indications that the revol
ver had been fired at close range. He as
serted that the bullet that struck Fatten
must hav, com from a distance.
KANSAS CITY, March n.-Frank Fetten
was employed by Bwlft and Company of
this city on March 13 last as a machinist.
On March IS Fetten went outside tbe com
pany' plant for dinner and remained out
after th gates of th plant had been
closed. Returning h. demanded admit
tance. The watchman, C. C. Hedrtek, after
telling him that he could not get In, aay
he fired several shots In the air In an
effort to frighten Fetten away. Fetten be
lieved the watchman was shooting at hlin
and returned the fir. Th. watchman than
began to pursue Otter, who. Hading hlia-
self unable to escape, shot himself In the
head. At the hospital Fetten said he be
lieved the police were looking for hint and
that h. armed himself for protection.
SALVADOR WANTS PEACE
leslea Aiken re fo4 ofiees la
Btopplnat Central Ameri
ca n War.
WASHINGTON. March f7.-Mr. Creel,
th Mexican ambassador, today confirmed
the press dispatches of this morning that
Salvador has expressed a desire for pesce
In Central America and Is anxious to hsve
Mexico exert Its good Influence In ending
th war Involving Salvador, Honduras and
This desire of Bslvador Is regarded by
diplomatists aa an Indication that rhe war
Is practically ended, because Honduras Is
not strong enough to continue It single
handed. This action of Salvador will
doubtles prevent Guatemala or Costa Rir
from taking any part In the support of
Honduras. Mr. Creel had a conference
with Mr. Cores, the Ntcaraguan minister,
today and probably will confer tomororw
with Secretary Root as to how Mexico and
the United States can best exert their
efforts to restore peace.
MOBILE, Ala., March 27 A report was
brought to Mobile from Trukillo, Spanish
Honduras, by way of Puerto Cortes, that
an attempt had been made by the Hnn
duran army to seise the Norwegian steamer
Buldal and an American schooner at th.
first named plnce for the purpose of using
them as troop ships, but that the presence
of the American warships prevented It.
WASHINGTON, March 27. -The State
department today received the following
cablegram from Philip R. Brown, secretary
of the American legation at Tegucigalpa,
the capital of Honduras:
Tegucigalpa was abandoned early yes
terday precipitately. It was occuplod last
night by Nlcaraguans and Honduran rev
olutionary forces. I assumed charge in the
Interval, with the aid of the consuls, and
preserved order. The Bonillan government
no longer exists.
COAL RATES ARE TO STAND
After Conferring; with Interstate
Commerce Commission Presi
dent Change Their Mind.
WASHINGTON, March 27.-Prompt ac
tion by the Interstate Commerce commis
sion has averted what might have devel
oped Into a serious clash between the coal
shippers and the railroads of Indiana and
Illinois. March 16 the Indiana Railroad
commission, the United Mine Workers and
representative coal operators of Illinois and
Indiana complained to the commissioners
that the carriers bod glyen notice of an
advance of 2 cent a ton on coal from In
diana and Illinois points to Chicago. Such
an advance, they pointed out, would se
riously afreet both operators and miners.
The question of filing a formal complaint
agains the railroads was considered by the
delegates with the commission.
An Intimation also was made that pro-
