LINCOLN. Feb. l.-(8pecial.)-Judgt W.
H. Bboemaker taught the house of repre
sentatives a lesson this afternoon, a loaaon
the house will be alow to forget. The Judi
ciary -committee actually reported for In-
grnnue poatponement the Judge s bill to
ri peal the Sackett law providing for the
removal of derelict officials by the gov
ernor. Of course, the house sustained the
Judiciary committee, but not until Judge i
Shoemaker had raised hla voice In solemn
warning: not until his oratory had stirred
the breeies Into waving the flags; not until
the raftera croaked and rattled; not until
Connolly 1n a stage whlaper said that he
was'seaslck; not until Connolly actually
iiked the Judge tq desist; and then the
Judiciary committee carried its point only
fcr 'the very close vote of 75 to 14. But
Judge Shoemaker only lost four of the
ouglas members by his speech-Connolly,
Kraus. Howard and Holmes. Thomas was
not present during the splendid effort of
the Judge.
Shoemaker inaisted that the constitution
provided for the removal of officers who
failed to do their duty, He loudly pro
claimed that .the Sackett law "hi a sad
commentary on our boasted civilization."
He was Joined by Scheele of Seward, who
asked that the bill be recommended for pas
sage In the name of "home rule" and "per
sonal liberty."
When Shoemaker had become finally ex
hausted Wilson of Polk told the house to
repeal the Sackett law would be a hack-
ward atep and Taylor of Custer suggested
that It would be expedient to kill the bill
now rather than to go through another
auin experience in the committee of the
whole. And so the statesman from Doug
las county was shot to pieces, but he died
game. x
One of Wide Srope to Re Introduced
br4 Taylor of Caster.
tl-'rom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Feb. l.-tSpeclal.)-Several
bllla for the Initiative and referendum ap
plicable to state laws aa well aa cities and
school districts are ready for Introduction
according to Representative Taylor of
Custer county, the house leader. At
present there la a law on the statutes pro
viding for both the Initiative and refer
endum In municipalise and school dis
trict with definite provisions for the sub
mission to a special election of all ordi
nances on a petition of 20 per cent o the
voters or the Initiating of ordinances on
the same plan. Under thia law tho people
of Lincoln several years ago voted on the
question of closing- saloons and lost by a
narrow margin. The act was Introduced
in the le gislature of lt97 by A. E. .Sheldon,
then representative from Custer county,
and now head of the legislative reference
library at the capltol. The populist plat-
lorro rana lor an act of thla aort, but
doe? not specify that It shall affect all
hranchea of the state government. Mr.
Taylor has been utudytng the Oklahoma
law with a view of bringing It duplicate
before the present legislature.
The Oklahoma law la of the widest pos
sible scope, taking in state, county, muni
cipal and school district divisions of the
government and making It possible for the
people to originate any law or ordinance
or to act upon them In the last Instance
if they so desire. The scope of the law
on me rweorasaa hooks at present Is not
appreciated by the members and many of
them do not even know that It exlsta In
the breadth It doea.
There ia a provision In . the Omaha
charter for the reference of franchise
granta to a popular vote' requiring
majority vote to carry.

Miss Mary Kcanlad, a dressmaker whose

$2,500 damage. It Is not known Just how It
John Scanlan, a brother of Miss Sranlan.
happened to be in her room when the fire
started, end. she says that his presence
was all that saved her from being burned
to death. Both were cut off from the door
by tho flames, which originated . near a
coal box and another door leading to the
next room. Miss Scanlan started to rescue
some of her more precious belongings, but
her brother saw the danger she was in
and dragged Iter past the fire and through
the door Into the hall.
The room was a furnace of flame within
a minute, and everything In the place was
practically destroyed before the firemen
arrived. Their prompt work limited the
blase to the room of Miss Scanlan. Pas
quode Maasel and Jacob Rlngle, tailors oc
cupying the rooms on each side of Miss
Scanian's shop; a printing shop, and the
private apartments of 8. B. Stewart,, es
caped with only slight damage from smoke
and water, or else were left entirely with
out damage.
Assistant Fire Chief Simpson says that
the fire had its origin in Miss Scanian's
apartments, although It was thought at
first that It started In Massei's room near
the door between his shop and Miss Scan
ian's. A bucket of water put out all the
fire that was in Massei's room.
According to Miss Scanian's estimate of
her loss, It will reach $2,000 and may ex
ceed that sum, aa everything she possessed
was burned up. She did not carry any In
surance. A fine organ, valued at $175,
handsome furniture, rugs and dresses, her
sewing machine, a $.V)0 stock of dress
goods and several hundred dollars worth
of dresses already made up and belonging
to Omaha women,' were included In the
list of property that was burned.
The building Is owned by Sir Horace
riunkett, for whom Conrad Young is agent.
The latter says that $200 or $300 will cover
the damage to the building, which is fully
