BILL FOR REVISION
OF COHSTITDTIOH DP
lleamre FroTidLng; for Voting in
1916 on Calling Conrention to
Amend Organio Law.
SHOKT BALLOT IS THING SOUGHT
(Frof a SUff Correspondent)
UNCOLN. Jan. M.-Spectal.) The
coming week of the Nebraska legislature
will ee .hills Introduced and considered
of Importance to the state at lane,
probably the most Important being- the
consideration i nth house of a bill' to
call a constitutional convention.
This bill will provide that at the elec
tion m 1918 the matter of calling a con
stitutional convention will be submitted.
The. purpose of the convention I not fo
snake an entire revision of the constitu
tion, but to submit to the voters certain
sections, which will be revised and af
terwards submitted to the voters.
Wk Art Baeklac Bill,
The bill Is the work of Norton of Folk
and Btebbina ef Dawson,, democrat and
republican, respectively, and proposes,
among other things, to make a majority
of alt votes cast for and against a con
stitutional amendment carry tbe propo
sition Instead , of a majority of votes
east at the election. The promoters I
Here that the man who goes to the polls
and votes neither way on a proposition
should not be counted against it any
more than the man who doe not go to
the polls at all. -
The short- ballot Idea la on of the
(hlnga which will be reached, If the bill
. becomes a law, the objective point be
ing .to cut out the election of most of
- the state officer. .The recall la made
a part of the measure.
Lam Title Measaro.
' The Torrens system of land titles will
' 1e a bill Introduced In the house this
. week probably by : several members
jointly. This, or a similar bill, has a!
ready be nintroduced. In the senate by
Ehumway ot Dixon, so It appears that
the economy program of the house,' which
. was Intended to do away with the dupll
cation of bills I none branch Introduced
In the other, will not be put In effect.
The, bill Is a very long one, covering
"many pages, and the cost of duplication
'. will be considerable. ,
Another matter Which will b decided
will be the Kelley-Fultt contest from Ne
maha county. Much will depend upon
' the result of the recount of the vote by
the committee, which will start Monday
night Fults, republican, ha a major-
- ity over Kelley, democrat, of five vote
to start with.
Bone af Contention, ""1
The bone of contention was the bull
- moose votes cast for Fults, which the
committee, at Its meeting last week, de
cided by a vote of 4 to J he had a right
to. Therefore, thre decision of the elec
tions committee to recount the votes Is
In Kellcy's favor, for, as be 1 sthe 'de
feated candidate, he ha nothing to lose
and something to gain by the counting.
' An error In the count of only three votes
would put, Fults out of It and Kelley
Jri. , But there Is 'an even chance, how
ever, that an error the other way night
give Fults a stronger bold. .
Over in the senate It Is expected that
the. appointment of a successor to Judge
"Holcomb as a member of the board of
control, will come up. It Is expected
that the governor will send in the name
- of Judge Holcomb and It will be up to
the "senate to. reject or confirm, as they
may see fit, the law requiring that ap
pointments to the board of control shall
be made by the governor and confirmed
by the senate.
Matter' of Conflraaattoa.
At the last session Governor Morehead
pent In the names of three men for con
firmation, nd in executive session hy
were all turned down. Later be sent In
the names of the present members and
. they were' confirmed. 'There is a rumor
that a similar condition may exlat when
the . name of Holcomb is proposed. but
. no one at this time cares to take the
lead in any movement against the con
firmation of the judge to succeed him
self . .
.Another matteer which. will have to be
adjusted is the one of appropriations to
pay the members and employes. So far
the senatel has failed to conform to the
Idea o fthe house and; when the changed
appropriation bill goe back to the house
It may meet with .some opposition.

Simple Way To
fhere Is on sure way. that ha never
' failed to remove dandruff at once, and
that la to dissolve It, then you destroy It
entirely.' To do this, just get about four
ounces of plain, common liquid arvoa
from any drug store (this Is all you will
need), apply It at night when retiring,
use enough to molstea the scalp and rub
It in gently with the finger tips.
By morning, most if not aJI, of your
dandruff will bo gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dis
solve, and entirely destroy, every single
sign and trace ef it no matter bow much
dandruff you may have. ,
Yon will find all lulling and, digging

hair will be fluffy, lustrous, glossy,' silky
and toft, and look and feel a hundred

to submit to the people at the 11 election
a Initiative measure In the form of an
amendment to the Slocumb law to pro
hlblt the licensing of ny saloon within
wo miles of any building of the Univer
sity of Nebraska or any of Its affiliated
schools or any state Institution under the
supervision of the Board of Control, ac
cording to A. O. Wolfenbarger, one of the
leading prohibition workers of the state.
A, state-wide vote on prohibition will also
b taken, be says. He Issued thl state
"There Is a welt defined movement un
der way which will have the backing ef
tbe temperano people ot this state with
out regard to party, sect or creed. It wllW
not depend upon legislation, but will come
from the people and go direct to the peo
ple a an Initiative measure In th form
of an amendment to the present Slocumb
law. and it will strictly prohibit the li

1.000.000 years to come, and will put a

will be taken on state-wide prohibition,

No Risk Taken.
"It will not be forgotten that we had
several thousand signatures on this two
mile proposition last year, but the event
was postponed and the names laid away
In great rick In order that the suffrage
campaign might pass by. It ha been
suggested that the old signatures, which
ran up into the thousands over . night
might still be Used, out this will not bo
done; no risks will be taken, but new
petitions will be put forth, and it 1
confidently ' believed that the necessary
number of signatures can be obtained
In six week without the expenditure of
more than 1600 for printing and circula
tion and without tho payment of a dollar
for worker. Alert politician and' short
