Daring the coming week the temperance forces will Introduce In the legislature, probably In the senate, a Joint resolution for an amendment to the constitution for state-wide prohibition. The supporters of county option are not satisfied with the progress being made on this matter and have determined to put the more radical measure before the legislature merely for the sake of putting the members on record, for there is no hope of securing a three fifths vote In Its favor. The county option bill by Representa tive Brown of Sherman was placed on gen eral tile from the standing committee In the house today without objection. Edgar Howard Howls. In the current number of Edgar Howard's paper, the Columbus Telegram, there is a dissertation on the manners of the demo cratic majority In the legislature that Indi cates the people outside the legislature are becoming aware of the goings on at the state house. Qoples have been mailed to members of the legislature. In closing up a roast of the members ot his own party Mr. Howard, In a signed editorial, refers to the action of the house In postponing a bill by Kelley of Furnas county to make an appropriation for an experimental station In western Nebraska, which was a part of the democratic plat form pledge, aa follows: Perhaps It was right to decide against locating that promised srliool at the town of Cambridge, but you killed the bill as a whole, and thus went on record against your platform pledges. I hope it la not too late for the square members of the house to take other steps to redeem our plcUge fur an agrtculturai school In the western part of the state. For God's sake, gentlemen of the legis lature. If you have no respect fur your own platform ptedgi-s. pluase have and show sympathy for (he common democrats uf the state who told the people that our platform pledges would be redeemed. Te Regulate Meter Cars. Senator Ollla will Introduce a bill next week to regulate the gasoline motor cars now being used on many branch lines in Nebraska. He will provide that two men instead of on shall be In the inotorman's eompirtittent to guard against accidents and that a smoking compartment shall be provided aod auarala toilet rooms for the sexes. On of Senator (Mill's Mils this week relates to the demand for money from per sons receiving an appointive office. It makes It a felony for any person In au thority to take such action and if enforced would prohibit heads of state Institutions from ta any manner collecting campaign contributions or would prevent an agree mnnt between deputies In aa office and the principal aa to a distribution of salaries after the office was salted dowq. The bill ta drastic In the extreme aa to Its penalties. Insurance Fleet Warms V. Monde night will mark the opening of the lnsurancerigh( In the senate, which has been held off by the chairman of the sea ate committee, Senator F. W. Bartos of Saline county, because he has not been ready to have the hearing begin and be cause of the press of other business la the upper bouse.

We Sell McCall's Patterns. with Insurance men of the state who have been seeking for haste In the matter, it Is certain that when the committee begins Its work the smoke will ascend. It Is by fto means certain the committee will stand by the senator from Saline county. In fact. It has been Intimated the committee may be against aome of his measures. His particular line of bills Is di rected toward a more thorough outlining of the rights and duties of mutual companies and policyholders, and since their Introduc tion there has been a determined set of mu tual lobbyists about the lobbies laying a foundation for what Is to come when' the hearings begin. A number of these men have been registered as lobbyists and others have not. The meeting of the senate committee has been postponed probably half a dosen times, but It Is announced that the first session will be held Monday night at the Llndell hotel. ROUTINE!

WRIGHT IS DEAD Former Commissioner of Loor Dies . at Worcester, Mass., After lest Illness. WORCE8TER, Mass.. Feb. .-Carroll V. Wright, .president of Clarke college and former commissioner of labor, died tonight, aged. (9. president -Wright had been a sufferer from diabetes for more than two years, but that disease dkJ not give him serious trobule until after his return from Washington on December 7. His last public appearance was at the dinner of the trus tees of the Carnegie Institute, with which Institution he had been connected for some years. He was obliged to take to h bed four days after his return, but rallied within a week. Still he did not leave his room and conducted the administration of Clark college through his secretary. This continued for nearly two months, but ten days ago complications set In aud he was forced to relinquish all business and since that time has failed gradually. Ills phy. slclans for several days have held out no hope for his recovery and It was realised that death might be expected almost hourly. The condition of coma Into which the pa tient had sunk In the last hours remained unbroken to the time of his rleath. FIRE AT ST. JOHN'S COLLEGE Bollalnsr Dating- Back to 1T34 Badly Damaged at Aununolls Institution. ANNAPOLIS, Md.. Feb. M. A fire broke out In McDowell hall, the main academy building of St. .John's college, this after noon, and despite the efforts of the fire men of Annapolis the fine building was soon ablate. ' The Interior of the building was com pletely destroyed, but the outer walls re mained Intact. The brigade of midshipmen rendered material assistance with the Navy academy apparatus, and two companies of United States marines were sent to the scene to preserve order. , The blase ' waa confined to McDowell hall, which was the main tnilldlng, around which the others clustered, but some dis tance off. No estimate of the loss can be obtained. McDowell hall waa one of the oldest buildings In Annapolis, having been at one time the main building of Old William and Mary college. It was built In 1734 of English brick and was of very heavy construction. One of the things that Is most regretted Is the loss of the many class shields which decorated the college chapel, and have been accumulated since 19. The fire had gained considerable headway before It was discovered. . This was due to the" fact that most of the St. John's cadets, are :away on leave of absence on account of , the approach of Washington's birthday holiday. Just how the fire orig inated is not known. STATUE TAKEN' fROM PLAZA Likeness of Washington Removed from Capitol Grounds to Pro tect It from Weather.

Walcott,' secretary of the Institute, spoke about the statue when he appeared before the house appropriations coti.mlttee. He described Its recent trans fer to a place of protection from the fierce ness of the elements. 'When they came to examine the statue," said Mr. Walcott, "they found It cracked all the way through. It was a very diffi cult Job to get the statue down there with out breaking It, but It is there now and It ia on It base." PROCEEDINGS OF THE , HOUSE Diplomatic and Military Academy Appropriation Bills Are Passed. WASHINGTON. Feb. 20. Two more of the annual supply bills, the diplomatic and consular and the military academy meas ures, were passed by the house of renrn. sentatlvcs today In a comparatively brief lime.

To make It Possible for Senator Knox to accept that office they have agreed to recommend that the compensation be re duced from $12,000 to $8,000 a year. They are still, however. In disagreement on the senate provision creating the office of ttnder-secretary of state and adding another assistant secretary. The house conferees object to the title of under-secretary on the ground that it follows too closely the English style of designation.

The list of delinquent counties is almost Identical for both of the leading parties, but what significance this fact may have Is hard to fathom. From Keith, Keya Paha and Pawnee counties, left blank in tna table below, no word has been - received one way or the other. Prohibition treasurers Jiave filed reports called for by the law lnNmt two counties. In Red Willow county the prohibition treas urer' admits an expense of $18.21, and In Saline county the report filed on behalf of this party shows an expenditure of $30. The anti-saloon group, the county option group and other bunches of "two or more" political pltchforkers, are clearly concerned with obedience to the Nebraska law against corrupt practices. Tet In no Instance, ap parently, have they rendered an account. thrnus-h their treasurers, of the money collected, received and disbursed during the primary campaign or during the following contest for the state offices and the legis lature. These groups were certainly very alert and continually busy during both the primary and the general campaigns. They have also been . claiming a large measure of ctedlt for the results. The fake Thomas letter against Governor Sheldon and the alleged forgery committed on the near-like stationery of the Lincoln Civic federation cost money for printing and postage, but r.either the Douglas county reformer nor the Lincoln democratic masquerader paid this money out of their own pockets. And the most active of the Lancaster county option advocates who claimed credit for electing a spilt ticket In. that county com mitted to local option has admitted In nrint that money was raised among a few perple and spent lwhere it would do the Tko Returns In Detail. Following Is a complete list of the coun ties of the state, with the amounte re nin rend, aa received and expended by the treasurers, who have reported according to law for the republican and democratic parties: Adams 1.61 Antelope " Banner ' .1.1....... ... ...... ... iJTn- J44.W 107.71 Box Butte -( Browit-;:-":"".. .

WASHINGTON, Feb. 30,-The postal sav Inga bank bill, after having been opposed for many weeks, although It has been the unfinished business or the senate, may yet be passed at the present session. The unexpected progress which was made with the appropriation bills yesterday, it is said, will give Senator Carter an oppor tunity te again press the postal savings bank measure, and It Is thought with a number of amendments It can be put In sr&pe where It would be acceptable to the senate. In the abort time that remains ot the rresent session It Is not thought possible to get the bill toward tbe house, but It Is argued that passage by the senate would bo an Important step toward redeeming the promise made by the republican na tional committee to enact the legislation.
