BIO RAID ON POSTAGE STAMPS
Secretary of Senate to Forward All
Mall of Members.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jan. 7. (Special.) An un
limited mailing privilege was granted the
secretary of the senate by a vote of the
members ' today when on motion of Sena
tor Buck of Otoe county, a banker, the
secretary was authorised to send all letters
of the members and officers of the senato
through the malls that these gentlemen
may place upon the secretary's desk. The
motion carried with It no limitation as
to the number and specified that the cost
of the postage thus applied bo paid out
of the Incidental fund tha legislature will
nrovlde. Heretofore the senate has been
rather chary about paying postage for
members, the Idea being In thla allowance
that only those letters which are necessi-
tated through the office the member holds
shall be transmitted at the expense of tha
state. The resolution passed on Mr. Buck's
motion will permit the mailing . of any
number of letters at public expense.
After a long discussion over tha proposi
tion to adjourn until Monday a decision
was reached to make the adjournment
continue only until tomorrow afternoon,
but ' the house desired to adjourn until
Monday, following the joint session and
the senate reconsidered Its action and
concurred In the action of the house. Thla
was done In order to permit the commit-
teeo on standing committees to confer, a
meeting for this purpose having been called
The expected action of the committee on
rules was taken during the morning, when
Senator Ransom, chairman of thla body,
sent to the desk a resolution providing for
tha Increase of the membership of the com
mittee on banks and currency from five
members, which Is the usual number, to
seven. Yesterday Dlers of York moved
that the committee be increased to nine
members and the motion was referred, the
committee on rules thought seven was a
sufficiency and the farmer members agreed,
imiiHing mey migm De able to secure a
majority on It. As constituted In the pre
llmlnary arrangements, however, with the
commute standing at fire, tha delayed pay
inent banking members had an apparent
majority. A strong contest will result yet
over the makeup of this body In the effort
to depose the bunking Interests, and In case
this Is not done, the bill will be drafted by
special joint committees, should the farmer
members be enabled to take such action.
