LINCOLN, April I. -(Special Telegram.)
House and senate conference committees
have been unable t agree on the bill to
extend the terms of county officers two
years, so that all officers may be elected
tn 1918 for a four-year term.
Juat what the bill will face tomorrow
is difficult to aurmlse. There appears to
be a strong feeling that officers who
want their terms extended two years
should go before the Voters in the regular
ay nnd get the extension by means of
the ballot and rwit try to have the leg

LINCOLN. Anrll 8. (Special.)
Today . was- the last day of . the Ne

ruse of stopping the clock was re
sorted to tala-evenlnff. .. -
The big appropriation bills are
still unpassed by the senate, and
other Important bills are before both
bodies, bo It is probable that even
Saturday night -will find the work
still unfinished and a portion of next
wee,k will have to be used in closing
up. The time for the real adjourn
mept, is so far ' away that already
some of the members feel that If the
time for adjournment can be legally
postponed It would be - better to
Working yoa Own Capital.
This wss the eleventh day that house
members have been working without pay1,
and the' ninth that the senators have
had to pay their own expenses. This
equals the number of days In the house
latt session, and is one short In the sen
ate. At that .session, the legislature ran
a week after it had stopped legally.
Members who recently signed an agree
ment to hang on until adjournment, are
now saying that they-meant tha official
adjournment and that It does not hold
them to an Indefinite period, so It Is
likely that, Saturday night, many will
leave. , .
Some Bills Saved.
. The Impatience of the members to get
home waa reflected in a motion offered
In the house by Mesre Iteuter and Tib
bett Juat before noon, that all bills not
reported out by, tha sifting committee
by 2 o'clock in the afternoon .should bo
indefinitely postponed. Several members
interested in bills, however, objected to
this, and "the motion was amended to
apply only to bills left In the hands of
standing committees at the time speci
fied. In that form lt was adopted.

WASHINGTON, April 8. The

the claim of the State department
for compensation for the sinking by

suming liability not only for he de
struction of the vessel, but of the

concerning ownership of the ship
