Kelley made a great speech In favor of
his measure and called upon the democrats
to stand by him, but it was Jio use, for
as Clark of Richardson said, while they all
loved hlrp' and he had a great big heart,
the state could not afford at thla time to

Wtau Make S4 Plea;
The finance committee of the house was
knocked off Its feet this afternoon and
aa a result the bureau of labor la liable
to aecure a 120.000 appropriation rather
than the ll.SOO appropriation agreed upon
by the committee. Mlnj Cora Bchlesaln
S'r. clerk of the bureau, in her arcument
before the committee for a larger appro

but o well did she do the work that rep

Howard declined to talk when she had

ttchlesslnger went over In detail Just
what work had been done by former La

mapped out for the future. She spoke
Immediately following Treasurer Brian,
who wanted an Increase appropriation
In order to hire someone to clip the
coupons off bonds. Mr. Brian said the
state flow had $7,000,000 worth of bonds.
This was the cue for Mlas Schlesslnger
and she showed the legislature could give
the bureau of labor Its $20,000 and never
misa the money, A motion waa made to
vote the larger appropriation while Miss
Bchlesslnger waa present, but Chairman

'Almost an hpen rupture has resulted be
tween Senator Bartos and Senator Tibbets
because of the delay in setting a meeting
of the Insurance committee of the aenate.
A hoet of bills regarded of vital Importance
to the Insurance men of Nebraska have
been Introduced and no meeting haa yet
been held. Several times Senator Bartos,
chairman of the committee, haa fixed a
time for a meeting, but something haa al
ways come up to prevent the aession. He
announced tonight that a meeting would
be held at 7 o'clock, but there was a meet
ing of tha committee on municipal affairs
at that time, on . which a number of the
members of tha committee on insurance
have membership. Senator Tibbets rose
to declare, that the Insurance matters wore
of such importance that persons living out
In the state ought to- have an opportunity
to attend. Senator Bartos thereupon an
nounced the committee would hold a ses
sion Friday night without fail and this
waa the agreement
"' Not long ago Senator Bartos announced
a meeting of the committee and when' It
was given out Senator ' Tibbets shouted,
"That's getting stale."
At the opening of the session Senator
Tibbets demanded tha chairmanship of the
Insurance committee and Senator Bartos
demanded the head of the railroad com
mittee. -I To . oompromlse, Senator Bartos
waa given: his: choice and. picked tha in

base ball In any form legalised by law was
given another setback today when the
senate In committee of the whole indet
inately postponed two bills to this end. The
senate on 'roll call afterward went on record
against the fclunday amusemvnt by a vote
of 14 to "18.". ...
The three Douglas County senators mado
a determined effort to. secure support for
the bill and an extended si each was made
by Senator Ransom. .Senator king of Polk
opposed tha bills and waa the only senator
who spoke, against then., the others being
content merely to vote.,.,
S. K..46, hy. Ransom,, permitting base ball
and theaters on Sunday and providing that
Sunday amusements should not be con
ducted to the disturbance of any religious
meeting, was .considered with 8. F. 74, by
Fuller of Seward, permitting base, ball out
side tha corporate limits--of any city or
town. . r . :
Speaking on the -general proposition of
Sunday amusements and the repeal of the
blua laws. Senator Ransom argued that th
attempt of the church; people to dominate
tha Sabbath was but following the plan
that the church, used Jn the middle ages
when the oppression of the church was the
cause .of more human, misery than any
other agency. He argued, the blue laws did
nothing tq prevent the rich from enjoying
their Sundays, but that the poor were af
fected and would be hpused up on the. only
day they have for. enjoy mentv
Senator Howell declared, as a. member of
the Omaha club, which he designated aa.
"the rich man's club." ha could enjoy the
liberties on Sunday, which were denied the
poor people. He (aid members pf the Coun
try club coul4 do. likewise, but ,the poor
people were denied yie. right. , , .
Senator Fuller. rea4 petitions, from many
persons demanding .Sunday, amusements,
and. quoted tropi legal pplnlona In other,
states where Sunday ball had been allowed.
He sgldJUidlaruVhad recently repealed the
law prohibiting Bnajtay .balL . .......
Senator King declared the bill, waa against
the homeland1 iTaf'k he people. of the state
demanded on 'day when they could gather
their families about them and take life
easy, and he declared the rhnrrh nnWu
were to be commended for ' trying to en

SIOUJ FAIaLS, 8. P., Feb. 17.-fSpaclal.)
Goldeq eagles sre vfry rare birds In
South Dakota, yet two fine specimens have
within the last fw days been captured In
Lawrence county.. It is believed that both
of them were driven from their homea In
tha rocks by tha extreme cold of the last
week and by hunger. . ...
The Time to Change
Is when ou feel interested

much better, sturdier, and
cleaner one feels by drinking
construction work has so much been done
for employes In the way of furnishing
nesessltles, comforts and luxuries of life
at the cost of the work as has been done
at this work. This Is one reason for the
high cost of the canal."
In their opinion "the work Is well organ
ised, and Is being conducted energetically
and well." They commen.1 the . m1l-l
and sanitary department "tfir Its success in
exterminating yellow fever and controlling
May Complete by IBIS.
N"We see no reason." thov add. "hv tha
canal should not be completed, as estimated
by the chief engineer, by January 1, 1S16;
in raet it seems that a somewhat earlier
completion Is probable if all goea well."
Considering the cost and time of con
struction of a sea level canal as compared
with the lock type, they hold that "most
of ths factor which have operated to
Increase the costs of the lock canal would
operate with almillar effect to increase ths
cost of th sea level canal, and at the
present time there are additional factors
of even greater tnportanca to be considered
as affecting the time of completion and
cost of a sea level canal."' One of these
they find In the Gamboa dam. if work nn
Which Was to be Started aa annn aa nnii(hl.
they declare1 It "could not be completed until
atter we time requited for the completion
of the lock canal." Further than this they
say that "a chaste ' In the tvn

a targe expenditure."
They claim that by the chanae tha irie
Chagres and the livers on the Isthmus
tributary thereto, "Instead of being allies

In them' would greatly Interfere with the

' Reply ing to the 'criticisms "that the canaj
region "is liable to earthquake shocks and
that a sea level canal would be less sub
ject to injury by earthquakes than a lock
canal," they assert that "dams and locks
are structures of great stability and little
subject to damage by earthquake shocks."
but 'that even If they could regard earth
quakes aa a source of serious damage to
any type of canal on the Isthmus, "the ef
fect upon the dams, locks and regulating
work of the proposed sea level canal would
be much the same as upon similar struc
tures of the lock canal."
As to the question of water supply they
say "It Is so much areater than anv rmI
that can be reasonably anticipated that the
best method of securing more water when
the time is needed does not reoulra t m
considered now." They report that they
can find no reason to apprehend Important
loss of water by seepage through the rlda-ea
surrounding the Gatun dam, "while In our
juesment," they add, "the bed cf the lake
will be practically Impervious to water."
