HOUSE WORK IS DRAGGING
Lack of Sufficient Number of Em
ployes Puts Members Behind in
SENATE IS "UP AND COMING"
(From a Staff Oorresponilent.)
IJNCOl,N. Jan, IS. tfpeclal.) Elgtity
four bills have been lntruoeil In the
hounn end of the Nebraska legislature,
bill up to this morning not a Mil had
reached the bill room for distribution.
JMxty-four bills have been Introduced In
the nBte and this morning the clerks In
I the senate bill room hsd them nicely dis
tributed. Ths first bUls have been in
their places two or three dsys.
Here ia shoan the difference In the poli
cies of the two houses. Notwithstanding
tlw hose adopted thn new method of
legislative procedure several days before
the senste, the tatter body bas been a bio
to put In effect the order far ahead 'of
the house, dua to the policy of the lower
body In cutting down the numlier of em
ployes to such an extent that the effi
ciency of that body is fun oh Impaired as
compared with the senate. .
'While the senate has cut down its em
ploye list to about forty-flv, it has seen
fer -enough ahead that these employee
are essential and doubly so, inasmuch as
the bouse members rannot get their work
done over there and have been compelled
to borrow the senate employes to relieve
the distress, keeping these latter jumping
all hours of the day. .

Brlfon ton rede (iermna Victory.
The British press, with unusual candor,
concedes that the Germans1 were victors
In the recent fighting near Holssons, re
marking that it is a relief from the cus
tomary Contradictions to find tho official
communications in agreement on so many
Important points. Military writers, specu
lating as to the reason for Emperor Will
lam's presence at tho front during the
fighting near Bolssons. augest that Gen
eral Von Kluck "either requested the em
peror to come and ln.plrn enthusiasm
among the wean' troops, or clan -folt so
sure of his ability to force back the
French over tho Hrer, that he desired
to bav the emperor witness the victory."
A. third theory Is that Ktnpcror William

a view to selecting the most likely spot
for an. attempt to break - through, in the

"I got the Impression," said the witness,
"that the secretary did not want the
matter on the records of the State depart

that Timothy J. Sullivan had said there
would be no trouble In carrying the con
tracts through, as the Banco Naclonal,
"the concern which worked up this
scheme and was to finance it was solid
with Secretary Bryan."
Sullivan also told the witness, accord
ing to the affidavit, that Minister Sulli
van has used his influence to obtain a
11,000 loan for him "from the National
bank of Santo Domingo and that It vrould

eventually a rort of th ministers' rake
off. "I told all these things In substance
as set forth In this affidavit to Secretary
Bryan," the affidavit continued. "I know
all the officials of the State department
