Plattsrnoiith mowed t a .substitute motion
"not to endorse''' ..
Whereupon the flieworks exploded. A
doren or morn addi:ass were made for
Mnd against the general proposition. When
loud cries of "u,msUonl question!" shut
off fifty or more attorneys who too would
, have talked, there anaued a pretty little
parliamentary wrangle. .
. Things happened this way:
A rising vote was demanded on the sub
., stltute motion. .
Mr. Iturhank Instated on a roll call.
Five men sustained . hlrn. and the chair
rgled the demand valid.
Then It was moved to suspend the rules
and take a rising vote,..
Mr. Hurbank rose to. n point of order
and declared the motion invalid.
President ftyan said the point was well
taken. An appeal followed, Mr. Burhank
asserting thin last appeal was out of
order. The chair now overruled him and
was sustained, 60 to J 4.
Then the roll call was- tak?n on the sub
Htltute to the original ' resolution. The
subi-titute was defeated. 63 to 40.
When ehout to vote again by roll call
on the original resolution to endorse, K.
V. Simrral slipped In a motion to adjourn
to 2 o'clock. On the ayes and noes the
result seemed extreme! close, 'resident
l;an declared the ayes' had Ii.

John Q- Yelser came forth Into promi
nence In a fairly sensational way at the
close of tho convention yesterday of the
Nebraska State Bar association, the rejec
tion of his candidacy for membership, , be
ing the theme of two hours' parliamentary
debate and wrangle. The convention itself
did not act on his application. It was the
executive councjl, which Is composed of the
offlctrs. which acted, and whose '.ejection
under the constitution as it now stands,, la
Matthew Gering started the ruction by
rising to Inquire w hat ' had become 'of Mr.
Yeieer's application. Mr. Gering under

acted adversely and he wanted to know
why ft did not report on the matter at

Ryan, or a point of order from -the floor,
put a kibosh on every one of haif a dozen
ingenious attemps made by James K.- Halt,
Tom .Holllster. S. Ai Bearle and several
others. Finally, Mr. Searle started In to
amend the constitution and found, once
more an impanse. The amendment had to
go to the executive council and be reported
back at the next annual meeting.

the committee, said he would sav that the
committee had found adversely, but so
far as giving reasons, which A. V. Shot
well demanded, he "wouM alt tip.ht till the

Finally Mr. Yelser himself withdrew his
application. "This action -Is spite: work."
he said. "It comes about because of my

A. G. Klllck. the secretary-treasurer of

foss I.. Hammond, collector for this ills
trlet. Is now making arrangements for the
collection of the federal excise tax from
corporations In Nebraska The blanks for
ninklng corporation return-, showing the
net profits upon hleh tax Is to be paid
for l!Mn, have Just been Isued to the cor
poratlolis In the state from the collector s
office n Omaha.
"These blanks are a little different from
those issued last year." said Mr. Ham
mond, "but it Is not expected that there
will be aa much confusion on the part of
corporations in making proper returns this
year as last.
"The objection to publicity urged by
many corporations against making these
returns has ben largely eliminated for this
year by a ruling of the Treasury, depart
ment made only a month ago.
"W"hen the law providing for payment
of this tax Was first enacted It waa sup
posed that the returns made by corpora
tions would be open for the Inspection of
tho publio generally, when filed In the de
partment at Washington, but congress
failed to make an appropriation for prop
erly filing and indexing the returns, so
that that portion of the law was prac
tically nullified. The new ruling of the
department more definitely fixes the limita
tions under which publicity may be made,
and these returns will be open to the In
spection of the proper officers and em
ployes of the Treasury department, but
where access la desired by an officer or
employe of any other department, applica
tion for permission to inspect such returns
must be made by the executive of the de
partment desiring it, and transmitted to
the secretary of tha treasury.
"Also, the secretary of the treasury may,
upon showing of proper cause, permit In
spection of a return by a bona fide stock
holder, but, since this la a personal mat
ter, this privilege cannot be delegated to
anyone else. A little more freedom will be
granted with respect to returns of com
panies whose stock la listed upon any
recognised stock exchange for the purpose
of having the shares dealt In by the pub
lio; also as to returns of corporations
whose stock Is advertised In the press, or
offered for sale to the public by the cor
The first collection of this tax was made
last year. The work was done so thor
oughly that nearlv tha last dollar .e..,H
