DEMOS TO JJAUCUS TODAY
Will Try to Get Together on Some
of the Pledget Made Last
m PLAN FOR KNIFING YET
From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Feb. 21. 'Special.) Demo
crats of the house have found It advisable
to call ft caucus to get together on some
of the platform pledge made the. people
last fall. One of these la the bill to elect
supreme court judged by districts.
There la much opposition to the bill
nnd It may take a lot of r.mendlng before
It meets with the approval of the mem
ber. The Lantgan hill, which IK the on
nndcr controversk. divide the atate Into
.nine districts. This, In the minds of some
of the members; Is too radical a change,
and thrv want, to leave the membership
on the bench as it Is with seven Judges
and then elect the six associates from
each of the six congressional districts,
with the chief Justice elected by the en
tire state. This may meet the approval
of the majority, provided that Lantgan
Is willing to accept the amendment
The Main Thin DImims.
This will be the main thing which wi'l
be taken up by the caucus, although other
things will be discussed, among them the
appropriation bills, which, It la aeported.
w ill be ready some time during the week.
It Is understood that the finance, ways
and means committee Is not yet clear as
to Just how much the departments will
he cut. It Is said that It Is not pleased
with the system of charging up expenses
In the case of examiners of the different
departments. One member of the com
mitttce, so It Is said, favors a plan to
discover Just how much the average ex
aminer needs for his work and. then pay
him a salary sufficient to cover thosfl
needs, and then It is up to him to spend
what he likes.
Make Many Trips.
It Is hsM that some examiners have
been In the habit of making examina
tions in some town a short distance out
In the state, and. instead of staying there
until the examinations are complete, run
Into Lincoln every night, and the state
pays the expense. One round trip Is 'all
the committee thinks an examiner Is en
titled to and if a plan can be arranged it
Is probable that something will be fixed
up which will prevent an examiner from
spending his whole appropriation Just be
i mine he Is afraid that if he does not he
won't get the same amount for the next
ft care Into Departments.
The scare that was put Into the state
liouso departments that clerks would be
cut out promiscuously has to some extent
died out, although there la enough uncer
tainty hanging about -to keep the cold
shivers traveling , up and down the
spinal column whenever the matter is
Another matter which may be discussed
Is the difficulty which the university
committee Is having over the Investiga
tion of ' the methods used In spending
money appropriated by the etat?. How
ever, the war clouds have begun to disap
pear since the battle of last Thursday,
una, as the regents have decided to make
nn Itemized statement of their needs, di
viding up the departments about the way
Chairman Taylor contended, there may be
no more" controveray over the matter.
It is understood that tha caucus may
be called some time Monday and an
tigrcement a to future action on legisla

Little Anna Leaf to Get Her
Chance to Develop Talent
Here Is little Anna l.eaf. 11-year-old
daught.-r of Mrs. ('. It. Leaf, who has
been charming a'idlcnces of the musical
elite of Omaha for the last several Sun
days at the studio of her Instructor, Slg
mund Landshet-g. Airangcmenta are be
ing made for Anna to give a piano recital
for the April meeting of the Tuesday
Morning- Musical dub, since she was "dis
covered" loo late for arrangements to be
consummated for the March meeting,
which will be held at the new Fontenelle
A number of prominent Omahans have
evinced det-Hed Intrtest In Anna's .career.
Frank 8. Cow gill, president of the Omaha
Grain exchange and a liberal nation of
the arts, Is especially interested In the
child, as is Mrs. Cowgl.l. Mr. Cowglll,
who Is an amateur violinist of no mean
abl.ltly. Is of the opinion tr.at Anna should
devote herself to this Instrument as well.
"The violin hns so much more soul." he
said. He bases his assumption of Anna's
success on the fsct that she can. with
her back turned to the piano, name any
note that is struck on the Instrument, so
true is her sense of tor,e.
Mr. Cowglll contemplates a brilliant fu
ture for this child wonder. "With her
ability and temperament, there Is no
reason why she cannot become a second
Fannie Bloomfield-Zelsler." he exclaimed
enthusiastically. His Interest In Annas
ability was first aroused when he heard
her play by chance one morning when he
dropped In to call at the studio. He be
came ro enthused that he arranged for
an opportunity fof Mrs. Cowglll to hear
the child play. Mrs. Cowglll In turn be
came so enraptured of the child's playing
that a further recital, it which a goodly
number of Omaha's musical coterie were
represented, Was arranged.
