H. R. 284, the bill appropriating $190,000 for
buildings at the state farm. The bill was
Indefinitely postponed several days ago
and In order that this action might be re
versed an attempt Was made by the friends
of the bill to bring it back for further
consideration. King of Polk led in the
fight for a reconsideration of the bill and
made the motion to recall It.
Senator King argued the question of ap
propriations for buildings at the university
at some length. He said there were more
students In the mechanic arts department
at the university than there were at the
state farm and he thought If there were
any way to do It some provision should
be made for their accommodation at the J
university. He praised the management of t
the university and declared the per capita
cost of running the Institution was smaller
than that of any similar Institution In the
Epperson and Root made the principal
arguments against reversing the former
action. Epperson declared the appropria
tions this year were sure to exceed the
Income of the state, and while he was In
favor of liberal appropriations for the State
university, he thought the state should pay
off some of Its debts during prosperous
times. Root also protested against bringing
the bill back at this time." If l Is found
an, additional appropriation can be made
without exceeding the Income for the next
blennlum, he said, he would be In favor
of doing it at some time.

Bond Aid BUI Saved.
The senate by a large majority refused
this morning to Indefinitely postpone H. R.
628, by Hamer, providing that cities, vil
lages and precincts may Issue bonds In
aid of the construction of steam railroads.
When the bill waa reported back from the
railroad committee Phillips of Holt county
asked that It go to the sifting committee
file. As a substitute Epperson of Clay
moved that It be Indefinitely postponed.
After a long discussion on tbe question of
voting bonds for railroads the Epperson
motion Was lost by the vote of S to 17.
The bill Is Intended to cure a '"Joker"
in a bill passed early in the session which
cut out from the present statute the pro
vision allowing precincts to vote bonds in
aid of railroads. The bill was ostensibly
one to allow the voting St bonds to aid
telephone companies. Epperson of Clay
was Interested in the psssage of that bill
In, order to head off some elections In aid
of an Interurban railroad running through
Hamilton county. The measure had been
algned by the governor before Its real im
port was known. ' Some of the senators
from the sparsely settled districts imme
diately got to work to undo what tbey had
unwittingly done. The Hamer bill allows
bonds to be voted by a two-thirds vote in
aid bf steam railroads, but cuts out electric
roads. The action takes today Indicates
the bill will pass the senate.

The Jenlson bill to appropriate JRo.Ono for
the purpose of establishing norma! 'rein
ing courses In four-year high schools of
the state was recommended for paasage
by the senate this morning after a long
debate. Under tbe terms of the bill high
schools providing normal courses are to
be allowed 1360 a ar by the state. Ep
person of Clay, who favored the bill, de
clared he purpose Is to make up for ths
devastation in the ranks of country school
teachers caused by matrimony. The normal
schools, he said, were able to supply only
enough teachers to fill the high school
faculties, leaving the country schools with
out trained teachers. Goodrich of Fillmore
also made an argument In favor of It.
King of Polk and Hoot opposed It, declaring
It was Intended as a sop thrown out to the
different high schools of' the state, the
amount being too small to accomplish any
practical good. - s
The senate this afternoon went through a
number of appropriation bills and In all
cases but two upheld the action of the
committee on finance, ways and means.
One of the exceptions was as to H. R.
X,d appropriating 0,000 to aid small school
districts which are unable without state
aid to hold seven months school each year.
The amount appropriated was cut from
$0,000 to tffi.000.
Walsh's bill appropriating money for per
manent buildings on the state fair grounds
was Indefinitely postponed.
Ths senate committee hod reduced the
amount of money appropriated from $711,000
to $20,000, but it wss reported on the floor
of the senate that members of the State
Board of Agriculture had said they wanted
the whole amount or none and the senate
took the board at its word and killed the
The senate this afternoon indicated it is
getting ready to adjourn finally by voting
to appoint a conference committee to meet
with the house committee appointed a week
ago to decide on the day for final adjourn

different times, but when King renewed it
this afternoon It was p.jsed unanimously.

Mr. Speaker This, the thirtieth session

We will all soon go to our several homes

been of Improper discrimination in railroad
But I am convinced that there must be
an increased regulatory and Supervisory
power exercised by the government over
the railways. Indeed. I would like it ex
ercised tp a much greater extent than I
have any Idea of pressing at the moment.
For Instance, I would greatly like to have
It exercised In the matter of overcapital
ization. I am convinced that the "wages
fund" would be larger If there was no
fictitious capital upon which dividends had
to be paid. I need hsrdly say that this
does not mean hostility to wealth. -All t
want, in any rate legislation Is to give
the government an efficient supervisory
ower, which shall be exercised as scrupu
ously to prevent injustice to the railroads
as to prevent their doing injustice to the
public. Our endeavor is to see that those
big railroad men and big shippers who are
not responsive to the demands of Justice
are required to who what their fellows who
are responsive to the demands of justice
would be glad to do of their own accord.
From the Messages.
In his message to congress at the be
ginning of the first session of the Fifty
ninth congress, December S, 1906, the presi
dent said: -
In order to insure a healthy social and
Industrial life every big corporation should
be held responsible by and be accountable
to some sovereign power strong enough to
control Its conduct. I am In no sense" hos
tile to corporations. Thli Is an age of com
binations and any effort to prevent all com
binations will be not only useless, but In
the end vicious, because of the contempt
for law which the failure to enforce law
Inevitably produces. H'e should, more
over, recognise In cordial and ample fashion
the Immense good elTect by corporate
agencies In a country sui-h as ours, and the
wealth of Intellect, enemy and fidelity de
voted to their service, mid therefore nor
mally to the service of ihe public by their
officers and directors. Tte corporation has
come to stay. Just as the trade union has
come to stay. Each enn do and baa done
frre.at good. Each shorld bo favored so
ong s It does good. But each should be
sharply checked where it acts against law
Until the national government obtains, In
some manner which the wisdom of con
gress may suggest, proper control over the
big corporations engaged In Interstate com
mercethat is, over the great majority of
the big corporations It will be Impossible
to deal adequately with those evils.
This power to regulate rates, like all simi
lar powers over the business world, should
be exercised with moderation, caution and
self-restraint, but it should exist so that
It can be effectively exercised when the
need arises. I do not believe In the
government undertaking any work whlcu
can with propriety be left in private hands.
But neither do I Dellve In the government
flinching from overseeing any work when
It becomes evident that abusea are sure to
obtain therein unless there Is governmental
It is because, in my Judgment, public
ownership of railroads Is highly undesir
able and would pro! ably In this country
entail far-reaching disaster that I wish to
see such supervision and regulation of them
In the Interest of the public as will make it
evident that there is no need for public

In his message to congress at the begin

Tbe Interstate commerce law has rather

railroads and of tboue who asserted that
It did not go far enough and would ao
compllsh nothing, liur.ng ths last five
months the railroads have shown Increased
earnings and some of them unusual.
We hold that the governmeut snould not
conduct the business of the nation, but
that It should exercise such supervision
as will inture its being conducted In tha
Interest ot the nation. Our aim la. so far!

President Koosevelt yesterday broke nla re

of ' Chicago that he heartily desires Uio
election of Postmaster Busse.
Tbe president's position is clearly and
emphatically set forth In the following dis
patch from the Tribune's Washington cor
respondent: WASHINGTON, March SI. I can wish
Chicago no better fortune than to have
ilr. Uusse as mayor, because he has shown
by what he has uone as pouiinaster that he
would make one of the beat and moat effi
cient executives any city euul- possibly
The Tribune Is authorised to state that
President Roosevelt Included ths above seu

The Tribune ia further authorised to say
that the president baa taken the deepest
Interest In Mr. Busse' candidacy. Ke has
followed the career of the republican can
didate for mayor with closeaattentloU and
was highly gratified at the reocrd he
made as postmaster at Chicago.
Repablleaa Leaders Elated.
The republican leaders In tna municipal
campaign ending today express themselves
aa delighted with the letter printed la the
Tribune of today, la which the statement
la made "by authority" that President
Roosevelt Is in favor of the election ot
Frederick A. Busse, the republican candi
date for mayor. ,
Democratic leaders assert that the tele
gram, emanating as it does from a news
paper which la strongly in favor of Busse,
is discredited In advance, and that even
though it did come from the president
himself it la too late to stop the progress
of the vote, which has set In strongly for
Dunne. Chairman O'Connell, the demo
cratic campaign manager, said today that
the election of Dunne la absolutely cer
tain and nothing can now prevent it.

With th expiration of Mayor Wavr's
term the republican 'organisation, which
was in September, successful in municipal
affairs until two year ago, when it was
defeated in a memorable fight on th leas
ing of the gas works, again comes Into full
power. Mayor Reyburn was elected on a
straight party ticket and the members of
his cabinet are strict party men, Buth
branches of th city council reorganised by
electing as their presiding officers and other
employe men who are prominently Identi
fied with the republican organization. ' The
minority represented by the City party, th
reform organization, which fought th reg
ular republicans, la stronger, however, than
It ha been in year, but not enough so to
control or dlrsot legislation.
Former Mayor . Weaver will retlr from
politics and return to th practice ot law.
