FINAL STRUGGLE ON
House and Senate Entrenched and
Ready to ire Their Heavy Artil
lery Over Thi Queition.
SENATE LIBERAL, HOUSE IS NOT
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, April 11, (Special.) -While
It may be considered that the
thirty-fourth session of the Nebraska
legislature is practically closed, ap
propriation bills still remain to be
passed and enrolled.
The two branches of the legislature
are so far apart on what they 'con
sider the proper amounts to be ap
propriated and appear to be so
strongly entrenched In their own
Ideas that It la useless to figure what
the result will be. It simply remains
to see which end of the legislature
will give way to the other or whether
both will recede somewhat from the
positions they have taken throughout
flffrnr (ram the Start. '
The trouble started riaht at the begin
ning over the proposition of adopting: the
nw methods of. running the legislature,
most of the trouble being on' the matter
of the number of employes. The house
took the stand that the number should
be out fully one-halt of that formerly
used while the senate contended that to
tut off about one-third the number was
sufficient to start on.
Both branches holding strictly-to that
.program the house got In Its first blow
on the senate by refusing to appropriate
sufficient funds In the maintenance bill
passed at the opening, of the session for
the payment of the amount of employes
the senate doomed It needed. This called
for a conference committee with the re
sult that the house receded somewhat and
the senate got the amount It thought
necessary; "' .
Hoasr Renins ratting;.
Then when It came to the general ap
propriation bllliy the house unds the
leadership of Representative Norton as
chairman of the finance, ways and means
committee proceeded to cut the general
maintenance bill In nearly every' depart
ment 'from the university to the - very
smallest department In the stats house,
still farther cutting expenses by the con
solidation of. several of the departments
of the state. . . ..
This was resented by the senate with
the result that In nearly every case tho
amounts which were cut by the house
were reinstated by the senate and the
consolidation scheme unconsolidated. '' It
has been a frequent remark by members
of the house as an -excuse for voting
for a cut in an appropriation to say "Oh
well let's cut It, the senate will put It
hack." and so it has been generally
understood that the economy' plan of the
house has been carried out with tha Idea
In- the .'nlnds of many of the members
that the senate would reinstate the suras
needed. . . . , , ; "' . ' '
Mr. Norton says be has Bo designs
i 'jf?P8r -yx2 the -j girberuatofial
position. . Ills motives for advocating the
economy -plan are the very purest , and
b white, a the. driven snow and that
a scat in Washington or In the big arrji
chdlr of tho executive 6ffices has nq
charms foe him. He is content to serve
tin? people of Polk county for-the next
lifty years if they want li1m.
, So .with the big appropriation bills In
the hands of a conference committee of
rach branch, composed of Norton, Korff
' and Reynolds of Red Willow In the house
tnd'R committee to be appointed In the
Hcnate nobody can predict' the outcome.

Th Easiest Way
To End Dandruff.
Thers Is one sura way that never falls
to remove dandruff completely and that
Is to dissolve It. This destroys it en
tirely. To do this, just get about four
ounces of plain, ordinary liqhtd arvon;
apply It ' at night when retiring; use
enough to moisten the scalp, and rub it
In gently with the finger tips
By morning, most If not all, of your
dandruff will ba gone, - and three or
four more applications will completely
dissolve and entirely destroy every sin
gle sign and trace of It, no matter how
much dandruff you may have
You will find, too, that all Itching
and digging of the scalp will stop In
stantly, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look axid feel a hundred times better.
Yau can get liquid arvon at any drug
store. it is Inexpensive," and four
ounces Is all you will nee. . This simple
remedy has nsver been known to fail.
