ItNCOLN, May 20. (Special.) A. con
dition of things has been found 'to exist
by reason of the passage or two bills
covering the commission form of govern
ment which may result In trouble for
the city of Lincoln.
It has been discovered that S. P. 4W),
creating an exlso board for the city n(
Lincoln and defining Its dutlos, conflicts
with H. It. 142, which also paused and
was approved by tho governor three
weeks later, providing that any city with
a population of 1,500 and over might
adopt the commission form of govern
ment aa lta special object.
Each of the bills passed with the emer
gency clause, but the house bill, which
passed last and was signed last, wipes
out the provision for an excise board,
giving the duties to the regular com
mission. What effect this may have on Lincoln
overybody hero Is fighting shy of pass
ing an opinion, though Mr. Uroady of
the code commission, after looking the
matter up hurriedly ,ti 0f tho opinion
that the house bill Is the bill which will
govern In the case. If so, there may be
another dry spell In the capital city, for
the present saloon licenses would not
