Measure Relaxing Provisions with
Reipect to Issuing Stocks and
KOTICE IS GIVEN TO INVESTORS
(Tram a Ptaff Corrr-spondnnt)
LIXCOLN. April 1 (PpcrlaU-Whether
H tm Intended as an April fool Joke of
not, Nebraska not a rolar plus blow
thla morning; when the senate Indefinitely
postponed annate flic No. ISO, a bill to
promote Interurban railway bulMing- In
Nebraska. The bill hn teen opposed by
Commissioner Thomas hall of the railway
commission, ad it was npslnst his Idea of
Issues of Storks and bonds In cennectlon
,wlth the building of interurhan roads and
Is notice to eastern capital that Invest
ments m Nebraska are not to be enoour
aiced. The bill waa killed by the senate com
mittee of the whole after Dodge of Dohb
las , had moved Its recommendation for
Hpeclflc amendmnt. Tt had, previously
been advanced to third reading by a nar
row margin. .
The bill waa made the subject of bitter
attack by reason of lta liberality' In
amending- the stocks and bonda act.
Dodge sought to amend It. but evidently
his amendment cune too late. Eighteen
voted to kill the bill, aa against fourteen
Barked In DnnvlM.
ThS ,blll had strong Douulas county
backing. Including the Omaha Commer
cial club. It provided that bonds up to
130,030 a mile could b elssued. Tho only
restriction was that the company must
realise 79 per cent on the sale of bonds,
allowing SO per cent -for discounts and
Beal and Shumway led the attack on
the Wit Dodge and Qulnby were Its de
fenders. Dodge explained that a reason
able amount was absolute necessary for
development purposes. Twenty per cent
would have to be struck off as discount
in order to find a market. That would
allow only 6 per cent for what some peo
ple termed "promotion" purposes. Ha
made a strong' plea for the people that
took the hazards of such interurban de
Holding It . for Nebraskmna.
Bhumway and Beal argued that the peo
ple of Nebraska would In good time build
their own Interurbans and that there was
no particular necessity for giving eastern
capttal any concessions. "
The vots was as follows: .
Down With the Jail Feeding Graft
Rrsolwtlans Adopted by the Xertaeest Improve meat flab at Omaba,
WHEREAS, We believe that in the provision for paying" the sher
iff 40 cents per day for feeding- county prisoners in Douglas county,
s proposed before the legislature in House Roll No. S32, there is an
enormous graft and unnecessary expenditure of county funds an un
necessary waste of money and an increase in the taxes of the prop
erty owner, and
WHEREAS, The sheriff is paid $4,000 per year for his services,
besides having all mileage and his deputies paid, and that we believe
that plenty of competent men can be secured, any one of whom
would be glad to feed the county prisoners without compensation,
providing the county furnish the food, provisions and supplies, and
would do so for the regular salary, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, By the Northeast Improvement club that we stand
vigorously opposed to such legislation as would pive the sheriff of
this county such a graft, in addition to his already overpaid salary,,
and we ask the legislature to either defeat said bill and proposed
act or to so amend it as to make the feeding of prisoners in counties
of the population of Douglas countythc duty of the sheriff with
