Howell did not reach tho house today
until 1:15, hut ho nt once got busy An
soon ns the session hegnn, however, 'ho
came to tho rolling nnd called forth his
"listeners" nnd giving them slips of paper
sent them forth to get a poll of members
on his bill which perpetuates every mem
ber ot tho Omaha Water board as well
as himself In office After tho poll Is
made, and It It shows that he has suttl
cicnt votes to pass tho bill, ho will at
onco fdrco It out ot the committee and
hnvp It passed.
If tho poll shows tho reverse he will
havo a list or names to wor kon. Just
how he will work cannot, of course, bo
told, yet when he wanted tho bill rushed
through the senate engrossing room tho
rlorks wero paid $25 by n representative
of tho board. If It was worth $25 to get
tho bill hustled through the engrossing
room of tho senate, one can figure very
easily It would bo worth . several times
that to get It passed In the houso and
out of all danger.
Should tho bill become a law the Water
board will have authority., to call Its own
elections and appoint trie Judges of that
election. Should a member resign or there
becomes a vacancy tho board has author
ity to appoint hlH suvessor for a full
term. Thus If ono shnitd loslgne ten days
beforo election ho could be reappointed
and thcro would be no election. It usu
ally takes considerable persuuslon of va
ilous kinds to get log.shitors to vote for
such a hill. And tlin ' Valor board repre
sentatives havo already .sorted tn vari
ous methods to get voU. Those who are
favoring tho bill the most are those who
have at times drawn pay from tho Wnter
