.Auditor Barton baa started out to make
every insurance, company doing business
In Nebraska rlther conform to the law and
tho requirements of his office or quit husl
Tc a number of companies Mr. Barton
has written letters calling attention to
their weak points and giving Instrurtlon
for theae matters to be. corrected or lis
will at once proceed to put the companies
cut of business.
The action of the auditor has stirred tip
quite a rumpus among; aeveraj of the com
panies and one company wrote) tha auditor
a lengthy letter telling what It Intended
to do In the way of reform. This was
arswered by Mr. Barton with the state
ment that promises did not go and that
the evils must be corrected by May 1 or
proceedings would be Instituted.
Between now and July the auditor will
Issue his order prohibiting any company
from printing on ts policies the statement
that the same Is guaranteed by the atate.
A bill which was Introduced In the legis
lature attempted to prevent this, but Jt
failet of passage. The bill gave the com
panies until January 1, 1910, to conform
to the ne wrule and get rid of their present
literature. The auditor will make his rul
ing In conformity with that bill, which was
killed by the Insurance lobby.
Promises to Keep It I p.
On several occasions Insurance commis
sioners have started out to correct the
evils of the Insurance business, but each
time the matter had been allowed to drop.
Auditor Burton Intends to keep after the
companies until every unsafe and unreliable
company Is either forced out of business
or made safe and reliable.
The Insurance business got considerable
airing during the late session of the legis
lature and so many charges were made
against certain of the companies that sev
eral com ponies are anxious for an Investi
gation, while other, of course, are Just as
anxious that there be no Investigation.
One Insurance man remarked this morn
ing that he believed a grand Jury should be
called to Investigate some of the eompanles.
The fact that the insurance lobby this
winter was more numerous probably than
any other lobby has attracted attention to
the buidness of Insurance and Is one of
the causes for a demand for an Investiga
tion. Mr. Barton has hia examiners at
work and It Is very likely that before the
summer is over Nebraska will be treated to
some real live Juicy news regarding Insur

Politicians Oat of Job.
Tht only business the platform convention
will have to do when called the second
Tuesday In July will be to select a state

regents of the State university, make It
unnecessary for n state convention this
.year except for the purpose of selecting
the state committee. There will be no need
ff a platform bcause nvlther party will
make a state campaign because the can

Which the platform convention can transact
Is the promulgation of a platform and the

Q Warraaio Halt Argued.
The quo warranto suit brought by the
slate on the relation of W. V. Oldham
against J. R. Dean was argued In supreme
court Saturday morning. The case Is one
In which the court must decide whether
the Judges appointed by ex-Governor Shel
don to the supreme bench under the con
stltutlonal amendment enlarging the judi
clary will bo allowed to retain their seats
or whether those appointed by Governor
Shallenbcrger will sit. Judges Root and
Fawcett were appointed by both governors
and will keep their places In any event.
Judges Rose and Dean were appointed by
Governor Sheldon and in their places Gov
ernor Shallenberger appointed Judges Old
nam and Sullivan. Judge Dean was the
only democrat appointed by the republican
governor, while Governor Sliallenberger
appointed two men from each party.
The argument of the Hhallenberger sup
porters lies along the Una that the act of
1877 is still la force, that all subsequent
amendatory acts are void and that rt con
sequence the power to canvass votes re
maina with the legislature. In opposition
to this the attorneys who are supporting
the validity of the Sheldon appointments
urge that the amendments were carried
