r.;maiked a member of the legislature In
discussing the. bill which, If passed, will
permit tae teachers In the state university
to participate In the Carnegie pension fund.
"So far as I am concerned," he continued,
"1 aee no reason for refusing tho teachers
a share in this pension fund. Other states
have permitted their educators to become
eligible to receive this assistance when they
shall have met the requirements of the

The more the members investigate the

to It.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 28. (Special.) Like a
blighting disease, jealousy has broken
out among the various committees of
the house, due to the fact that no one
is responsible for their selection, the
speaker having no authority to straighten
out tangles or offer suggestions, thanks
to Mr. Bryan's Interference. By reason
of this Intense Jealousy at least an hour
was used this morning In a discussion
ss to whether It waa right and proper tor
the finance committee to make a report
on an appropriation bill for a state in
stitution previous to a report on the
needs of the Institution from the com
mittee on public lands and buildings.
Tha bill which caused the waste of
time was that by Begole of Gage county
appropriating $100,000 for three buildings
at the Institute for Feeble Minded at
Beatrice. The finance committee re
ported the bill back ' to the house
amended so that only two buildings
should be erected and tha appropriation
cut down to $70,000.
It developed that the finanee commit
tee in order to get specific Information
regarding the needs of the Institution
sent a special committee to Beatrice to
Invebtlgate and as a result the commit
tee recommended cutting $ JO, 000 out of
the appropriation.
This started Kelley of Furnas on the
warpath. Ha Insisted that his commit
tee on publio lands and buildings should
be wiped off the msp If ths other com
mittees were to do its work. Then Mc-
Coll of Gage made a long speech about
It being due the fathers snd mothers of
feeble-minded children to keep the In
stttutlon In good shape. Ktllen thought
the finance committee had done very
well, though he regretted the lopping off
of tho $80,000. Then a half dosen others
took a shot at the finance committee
white both Clark of Richardson, Its
chairman, and Begole of Gage, the In
troducer of tha bill, were trying to get
In a word.
e All of the criticism was aimed at Clark
because Clark ha demonstrated that ha

MoColl, "your governor vetoed It."'
"I rise to question of personal privi
lege." said McColl. "George L. Sheldon
was no more my governor than he waa
yours, and he was defeated for a second
term, too."
Bowmsn of Nuckolls tried to clip off a
section of the constitution by a resolution
providing that no bills should be Intro
duced after the thirtieth day of the ses
sion. He lost, but not before he had given
the house some good argument In favor of

LINCOLN, Jan. 28. (Special.) For years
the financial condition of tha state has not
been In as good condition as at ths present
time, when the first . appropriation bill
reached the office of the state auditor.
State Treasurer Brian has on deposit at
the close of business tohay $600,000 and there
Is outstanding against the state a debt of
$591,000. To offset this there Is In the gen
eral fund 1106,000 and In the redemption
fund $67,000, which will cut the debt down
to 416,0u0 Just as soon as the Interest on
the warrants has been figured. In the
permanent school fund there Is now $163,000.
The treasurer Is JuBt now having his an
nual settlement with county treasurers,
which accounts for the immense amount of
money he has on deposit and each day for
a time will Increase the amount. Out of
this, however, hs has to taks care of all
outstanding warrants, pay for school bonds
purchased under the new constitutional
amendment and be in readiness to take up
university warrants should the supreme
court decide adversely to tha treasurer in
the friendly suit now. pending.
This Is tha splendid condition of affairs
at the time the democratic legislature
makes Its first rap against the door' of the

INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. Jan. .-After a
ten years struggle the socialists among
the membership ol ths United Mine Work
ers of Amercla have at last obtained the
balance of power In the annual national
convention, now In session here. It Is
estlmsted that 300 of the 1.400 delegates
are either active socialists or have engaged
to support measures of socialistic tendency
In the convention.
A resolution fqr the "public ownership
of public utilities," wss adopted by the
convention without a dissenting vote. In
the past the lesders have been able to
prevent the national organisation from
committing Itself to socialiatlc doctrines,
but that time is past, and President Iewls
finds a rival for his office In John Walker
of Illinois. . who Is a professed socialist.
Mr. Lewis and his supporters, the conserv
ative party In the convention, on the eve
of factional strife that threatens their re
gime, seem to have' decided that It now
would be "bad politics" to antaganlse so
strong an Influence as the socialists now
wield. -
. Demand Release of Pooren.
A resolution was adopted demanding re
lease of Jan Pouren, in addition to Chris
tian Rudowics, Russian refugees in this
country, whose cases have been considered
lately, on extradition proceedings on the
part of the Russian government. The
miners demand the release of such prison
ers "because political refugees of all other
countries cast their eyes upon this as an
as))um for the oppressed."
TI.e resolutions further "demand the
abrogation of the treaty which provides
for the extradition of persona charged with
offenses against a nation where persons
so charged are not to be tried by a Jury
of their peers."
While care fs" taken by the miners'
leaders that the organisation shall not taks
definitely a socialistic course, and a reso
lution for government ownership of coal
mlnea has been defeated, nevertheless the
socialists have been successful In putting
through a resolution recommending pub
lio ownership of the "wealth producing
agencies" of the country, "which are now
In control of the predatory rich," and
that there should be a social reorganisa
tion totfie effect that each man should
receive the equivalent of the labor that
he gives to the community. This reso
lution was adopted without a dissenting
It Is authoritatively announced bv friends
of Thomas L. Lewis, president of the
United Mine Workers of America, that
the count of the ballots has proceeded far
enough to show that he has been ' re

Imprisonment of Samuel Gompers, John
Mitchell and Frank Morrison, offlcera of
the American Federation of Labor. ,
Tha action of Justice Wright In these
cases can never be regarded as giving any
degree of Justice by the mine workers of
America. We maintain that there watt
no violation of the law of the land
by our fellow workmen, and that all their
acts complained of were directly within
the rights as guaranteed to every cltlsen
of this country by our constitution and
other laws We hold that the anti-trust
law waa never intended by congress to
apply to labor unions, snd the construc
tion placed thereon by' the federal courts
Is destructive of the usefulness snd only
power of organised labor for Ha protec
tion and advancement
We further protest against the uncalled
for and extreme- bitterness of the ar
raignment of the defendants by Justice
Wright aa unparalleled In Judicial pro
ceedings in the courts of our land. We
regard hie action as a direct blow against
our individual liberties as workmen and
against our labor unions. ffe condemn
the penalties Imposed as unjust, unreason
able and shockingly excessive.
Notwithstanding juadcu Wright's denun
ciatory opinion, we maintain that the trade
unions have been,- and are. based on loy
alty to the laws of our courts, and we are
now, as ws have been In the paat, determ
ined to reseat any encroachments on our
rights as guaranteed by the constitution
Of our republic. We denounce government
by Injunction, ss sought to be enforced by
some courts, an unamorlcsn, unconstitu
tional and void. We deny the right of
courts to Issue Injunction agalnat offlcera
or members of labor organizations while
contending for their rights for alleged of
fenses not committed In the presence of
the court, without notice to the partlea
concerned. In Seeking to bring about a
condition In the Injunction law aa Inter
preted by the courts, we hsve no desire to
attack property rlghta. They must be safe
(iiarded, but there are other rights that
Should be regarded the rights of man.
We can never agree that labor organisa
tions are trusts. They are voluntary In
character and formed for the protection,
advancement and general welfare of the
land. We concede the righta of Judges to
punish for contempt offenses committed In
the presence of the court. But we most
emphatically deny the right of any court
to punish for offenses committed not in
the presence or hearing of the court, unless
the a or used la afforded a trial by a Jury of
his peers. This right of trisl by Jury Is
guaranteed to the humblest cl"ren by the
constitution of our fathers and we Insist
on our full rlghta thereunder at all times
and place.
We demsnd of congress a speedy enact
ment of a law commanding federal courts
to change their procedure In contempt and
Injunction Vases so that notice shall be
aerved on defendants In labor dlaputea and
a Jury trial afforded befors punishment is

We slso demand that all cases of con
tempt shall be heard and determined by a
Judge other than the one Issuing the writ
except when committed In the presence or

labor organisations are for the betterment
of workers, snd that men have a constitu

from Womii He Had
KANSAS CITT, Jan. 28. -Charles EL Nord,
arrested in Omaha and brought here today
on a charge of passing a fraudulent check,
and whose trunk was found filled with good
clothes and love letters, denied tonight that
sny woman whatever hsd sny claim on
him and Jnslsted he was heart-whole and
fancy free.
Two of the letters were from Chicago,
where Nord says he was In the real estate
business at 115 Dearborn street four years
When queatloned regarding the letters
somoe of which were signed "Miss Anna
Heerhold, 24S8 North Forty-fourth street,
Chlcsgo," and "Mrs. Ida M. Stern, 6ol
Madison avenue, Chicago," Nord refused lo
say anything except that they were per
sonal letters and money matters mentioned
in them were simply business transactions.
Asked regarding the letters from a woman
in Sweden, who addressed him as her hus
band and aHuded to their marriage, he re
plied a mistake had been made In the trans
mission. Nord Is about 10 years old and is
not of prepossessing appearance.
Following his return to Kansas City the
police seized Nord's trunk and In It found
several hundred letters from women In va-
J rious parts of the country. These letters,
which were made public last night. In
variably refer to Nord In terms of endear
ment, generally speak of a coming marriage
and in each case mention loans of money
alleged to have been made by the writers
to Nord.
The letters disclosed bear the following
signatures, among others:
"Jean Ida Bell, Haileybury, Or.t.;" "Jane,
1223 Irwin street, Pittsburg, Pa.;" "Mrs.
Ida M. Stem, 6619 Madison avenue, Chi
cago;" "Miss Anna Heerhold, 2488 North
Forty-fourth street, Irving Park, Chicago,"
and "Mary L. Berry, Savannah, 111."
One writer pleaded with the man to sell
his office furniture In Buffalo and come' to
her and marry her. Another letter read:
"We will be happy when we are married,
but, Charles, If you expect to keep my
Confidence you must square yourself In
regard to that check." The same writer In
another letter said: "I just received a
notice from the First National bank saying
that the note for $1,000 was due April 13,
and raut be paid."
SHU another writer says:
"Fortunately, dear boy, I have the loan
at hand that you ask. Of course, you hate
to ask me for It, but I am only too glad to
do you the favor." "My own dear C,"
writes another, "I was so sorry that my
brokers told me that money was so hard
to get they could not accommodate me
with the $200 you asked me for. We could
live," she added, "on the $100 a month of
mine until you get on your feet." Lter the
same writer penned this: "You will please
send the $10 at once or I shall be obliged
to bring suit."
