IJXCOUN, Neb.. Nov. JO. ( Special.
Member of the State Tax commission
held a session with the attorney general
today to consider providing ways and
means for the creation of a tax commis
sion under the present restrictive laws.
The special commission says it does not
want to perpetuate Itself in office as all
of the members are engaged In work
which they will not rive up, but they
are anxious to see a commission created
which will administer state revenue laws
from a more centralised point than is
The way apparently lies open, they con
cluded after their visit to the attorney
general, through reposing the duties In
some of the executive officers as named
by the constitution and then through the
creation of an under board of secre
taries. It would make for efficiency, the com
mission says, to have members of this
board chosen in a nonpartisan way and
to have one of the three members ap
pointed every two years, to hold six-year
terms. Were that plan followed the first
appointment of three members would be
for two, four and six years, respectively.
Twelve Vacant Chain.
Twelve chairs remain unselected In the
house and six in the senate. The late
comers w-Ul have a chance either to sit
on the front row or roost out on the end
seats, for nothing else Is left.
I,e Work oa Brooms.
The work of making the complete
brooms at the state penitentiary will not
be continued any more. The Lee com
pany, which has had the broom' con
tract for several years, will only use the
convicts for making certain parts of the
broom, the finished product being com
pleted at their Lincoln factory. Only
about fifty men can be used from now
on. What prisoners are UBed will be in
the chair factory and In the necessary
work outside and Inside the prison. The
work of pulling down the old b'lildtng
will be begun as soon as the broom ma
chinery is out, and the other building
used as a broom factory will be remod
Rate Case Pat Ovex.
The hearing in the oil cases, which were
to have coma up before the railway com
mission tomorrow, has been postponed
until January 6. The complaint was
inade by the National Petroleum associa
tion against the Santa Fe Railway com
pany and involved changes in rates.

LINCOLN, Nov. 30. (Special.) ftate
Insurance Commissioner L. O. Ttrlan has
prepared a brief statement of the con
tents of the workman's compensation
law In simplified form, so that when the
law goes into effect ten days after the
official canvass by the board, the public
may have some conception of what It
means. Mr. Brian's statement Is as fol
lows: "The workman's compensation law,
passed in the 1913 legislature, having been
suspended from operation owing to a
referendum petition being filed with the
secretary of state, asking that the law
be referred to the voters at the general
election in November, 1914, and as the un
official tabulation evidences the adoption
of said law, I believe it of Interest to
the public to givo a digest of the most
Important features of the act.
"The law. will be In force and effect
within ten days from the 23d day of
November, at which time the vote Is of
ficially canvassed by the state election
The law will apply to every employer
In this state employing five or more em
ployes, except those employing household
domestic servants, farm laborers and
railroad companies doing interstate com
merce, who ire subject to congress and
not within the provisions of this law.
"Part I Is so framed as to penal y re
both the employer and the employe If
they do not elect to come within the
provisions of Part IL
Application of Law.
"Part II Tvery employer (other than
those exempted) automatically comes
within the provisions of the workman's
compensation law and will bo governed
by its provisions unless the employer
posts, and thereafter keeps posted, In a
conspicuous place or places where his
workmen are employed, a written or
printed notice of his election not to be
bound by Part II, and he must file a
duplicate of such posted notice with the
Insurance commissioner, and unless every
employe gives a written or printed notice
to his employer of his refusal to be bound
by Part II and files a duplicate proof
of the service of such notice with the In
surance commissioner, he will automatic
ally come within the provisions of the
law, and be governed by its provisions.
"If an employer has given notice not to
accept the provisions of part II he may
later waive such notice by posting In a
conspicuous place a written or printed
notice of withdrawal and file a dupl'cato
notice with the insurance commissioner.
"If an employe has given notice not to
accept the provisions of part II, he mttyJ
later waive suoh' notice by a notice In
writing directed to the employer and
serve same upon his employer or his
agent, and file a duplicate with the in
surance commissioner. The waiver will
not be effective until noon of the fifth
day after filing the required notice with
the insurance commissioner.'
Contractors and Sotooatractap-s.

more employers, the benefits will be pay
able In proportion to the wages paid by
each employer, unless a contract is maJe
between themselves of the burden of the
compensation to be paid.
"No other Insurance held by an em
ploye will detract from the compensation
