COMING WEEK TO
TELL WHEN STATE
Next Few Dayi at Lincoln to Deter
mine Time This Session of
APRIL TENTH MAY BE THE DAY
Fanners Are Already Becoming
Anxious to Return to Land And
Get Their Grain In. , .
IMPORTANT BILLS TO COKE UP
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March 21. (Special.)
The coming week of the legislature
will determine at what time the. mem
bers will be likely to pack up and go
home. The end of the week will
bring the session to that point where
the members will begin to get anx
ious. Thursday night will complete
the constitutional sixty days for the
house, while the senate will have
three days longer in which to com
plete its constitutional limit.
April Tenth May
According to some of the leaders . of
the houae April 10 may be the day when
the clock will be stopped and the longest
day ot the session observed. Usually the
clock Is atopped Just before the ex
piration of the day and the bodies work
on finishing up the work and waiting fpr
the Inst bills to be engrossed and slimed.
Then the final drop of the gavel la hearS
and the thing Is oer. Should the legis
lature run until the tenth, which Is two
weeks from next Saturday, It may be
Monday beforethe' real end comes.
X Dnr Cam Tell About It.
However, no one' can tell very much
about It, for on account of the order of
Speaker Jackson Issued that no vouchers
will be made out until the end Is reached,
there may be enough of the members form
a combination to hustle things up a
Already the lure of th"e oat field is
drawing the farmer members, one farmer
member being heard to say lat Thurs
day that he ought to be home getting
his 'oats in. When the call of the farm
begins to be felt It generally spreads
rapidly and should warm weather start
in this week thore is no telling what
may happen by Saturday night.
Important Bills to Come I' p.
There are some Important bills yet to
be disposed of, the Omaha annexation
bill has to go back to the senate for
approval ot the Parrlott amendment at
tached ' - the house, while the v Omaha
water board lighting bill has yet to go
up against final passage in the house and
then go back to the senate.
Then will come the anti-dlscrimlnatlon
insurance bill. On top of these the ap
propriation bills have got to run the
gauntlet of the senate, and some of the
appropriations will be changed. This will
mean a return to the house and the prob
able appointment of a conference com
mittee by each body, and that will mean
mure delay, so it the lure of the farm
strikes the members they may be com
pelled to forget It and stay to the end. I

Mayor Dahlman, the city commis

A determined effort will be made to
block ' the proposed amendment to the
Omaha charter whereby the May 4 elec
tion will be postponed so that In the
event that annexation goes through at
a special election, candidates of the an
nexed territory may file for the elec
tion ' " '
"I do not believe that our election
should be postponed on account of the
annexation watter. Let annexation stand
on Its own merits and arrange so that
the voters of .the annexed towns may
participate In the election May 1 4, even
If they cannot participate; In the filing
of candidates," asserted tha mayor.
The mayor contends the stage has been
set for the primaries April t and the elec
tion. May 4 and to upset those plans
would' be unfair. He asserts that various
candidates have spent money for cards
and other advertising and have started
their campaigns. '
