TECUM SEH, Neb., Dec. 11 (Special.)
The proposed transcontinental automo
bile road to pass through Otoe, Nemaha,
Johnson and Gage counties, sems to be
a th'ng of the past as far as these four
counties are concerned.
William Conway of Washington, field
superintendent of the transcontinental
route, recently visited these counties and
stated that arrangements could be made
for much of the ocean -to-ooean automo
bile travel to leave the Lincoln Highway
In Iowa, cross the river at Nebraska City,
go west through these four counties and
make a direct westward route front
Beatrice to Denver. Clubs to boost for
the proposed line were organised in
nearly all the towns along the route In
the four counties.
The matter of the method of financing
the proposed road, paying the expenses
of marking the same, charts, eto., as pro
posed by Mr. Conway, evidently did not
meet the approcal of the clubs, for the
project has been given up, and the Lin
coln Highway will, in all probability, b
the only east and west automobile road
through Nebraska of Importance.
Talk of Establishing
a State Printery
(From a Btaff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Dec, U.-(9peclal.)-There
Is much talk heard around the state
bouse these days regarding a proposition
made that the next legislature set the
state up in the printing business and
equip a plant to do all the state printing.
Secretary Ludl of the stats printing
board has compiled figures showing
that during the present biennium the
tate has paid out something like 1105.000
for printing, not including that done for
the state university. The suggestion has
been mado in the past that ap lant could
be put in at the state penitentiary, but
the history of that Institution In the past
, has been that there has been a scarcity
of printers In the institution.
Some of the state Institutions, notably
the Boys' Industrial School of Kearney,
has had a printing plant In connection
with the 'nstitutlon, but the plant was
far. from up-to-date.
It has been urged that the thing to do
would be to develop printers out of some
of the best of the life prisoners' and In
that way permanent printers would al
ways bo found at the penitentiary.
a penalty for their failure to serve and
prescribing their duties." Is the title of
a bill which will be introduced in the
lower house of the Nebraska legislature
by Representatives-elect Ralph A. Moae
ley and C, Petrua Peterson of Lancaster
county In an attempt to correct tho un
satisfactory system of registration prac
ticed in Lincoln and other cities of. the
class mentioned In the title.
Msrlag Cooeels Registration.
The bill Is patterned something along
the same lines at the election law of
Omaha, but has no election commissioner,
the city clerk being given the duties of
that office. The correction which the in
troducers desire to make more than any
thing else is along registration lines, and
Instead of having certain registration
days, they make every day registration
day at the office of the city clerk up to
ten aays oerore tne election .When . a

Ed Ixsey, one time editor of the Cody
Cow Hoy, was taken to Lincoln penlten
tlaryalaat night by Sheriff New, where he
will serve two years for violating tho
gambling laws. He operated largely with
the base ball team here during the sum
mer, and put in his spare time gambling.
He waa indicted before the grand Jury
last month and later arrested at the home
of a young woman to whom he Was pay
ing court. Tho girl was so Infatuated
with him. It Is said, she went to the
county Jail with SlOO with the Intention of
paying his fine and afterward marrying
him. Inquiries at Omaha brought out the
fact that he was already married and his
wife had not and would not divorce hltn.

LINCOLN, Dec. 13. (Kpeclal.)-The

that registration shall stand until he
moves . to some other voting precinct,
which act of moving from the prerlnct
cancels his registration, and he will be
required to register the same aa a new
voter In his new location.
Ten. days before the election the de
partment in the office of the city clerk
shall. be closed for the purpose of veri
fying the registration in each district
through Inspectors appointed for that
purpose and for general registration.
When any doubt exists in the mind of
the Inspector as to the light of a "oter
to register he shall mark the word - chal
lenged" after his name and the city clerk
shall at once notify such voter through
the mall to appear and show cause why
the registration should not be cancelled
and verify his registration under oath.
The system of havln gthree registration
days each year and opening up each
election voting place in the city for reg
istration has been unsatisfactory in Lin
coln, and expensive also, without giving
adequate returns for all the trouble
taken. It Is believed by Mr. Moseley
and Mr. Peterson that the bill prepared
will correct the weakness of the present
lsw and make registration not so much of
a hardship upon to many voters.
