Presidential Preference Plan As Now

To Need Altering.
(From a 8tff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. SI. (Special)-Attempt
to gain politlral prestlje by fil

republican nomination for the presidency
have again brought up the question of
a change In the primary law.
That It ts a huge Joke, so far aa the
prealdentlar primary la concerned, most
of Ita friends are willing to admit, but
there appear to be a feeling that any
Individual or any party which would
advocate changing or amending It l.i
any form would encounter vigorous op
The latest and what looks to be the
most feasible plan was suggested yes
terday by a politician from out in the
state, who said that It would be hard
work to make any changes of conse
Quence unless there was a concerted ef
fort made by both of the leading poli
tical parties, and he suggests that the
republican and democratic state com
mittee get together and either select
half a dozen good men to prepare the
change needed or prepare them them
selves, and have both conventions en
dorse the changes.
In that way It would he taking the
matter out of politics, and numbers of
the legislature would have something to

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Nov. 14. (SDecial.) That
collections made from county treasurers
have been steadily Increasing during the
past three years Is evident by a state
ment given out by State Treasurer Hall.
The attempt by the state treasurer to
have county treasurers remit monthly
has had the effect of bringing In a more
steady stream.
Soon after taking hla office. Stato
Treasurer George E. Hall serrved notice
on the various county treasurers that
ho would require monthly remittances of
their collections of state funds. Most of
the counties have compiled with this
substantially, except those named below.
During the Sl day of Mr. Hall' In
cumbency, up to the lth of November,
he has written 74 4recelpts for county
treasurer. This make an average of
(9.6 days between remittances, or 8 per
county. In less than a year. This average
rf days would be considerably reduced
If -Douglas, Nemaha, Otoe, Richardson,
Sarpy, Valley Washington, Wayne and
York counties had not been negligent
-bout making remittance.
In the year 1913 and 1914, the present
3 counties made 84S remittances, an aver
age of 80. J days between remittances, or
little better than t per county. In
this two years six counties only have
a. credit of twenty-four remittances aaeh,
and five have a credit of twenty or
Monthly-remittances are by no means
ran Innovation. In 1897, John B. Meserve,
democrat-populist state treasurer, re-
Quired monthly remittances of all the
larger and richer counties and In the two
years, twenty-four remittances were made
by each of thirty-one counties, twenty
or more by ten counties, and the total
number made by the then ninety counties
was 1599. This Is an average of 11.1
days between remittances, or seventeen
per county.
A comparative statement shows that
from December 1, 1912 to December 1,
1913, the collections were 32,702,42; from
December 1. 1913 to December 4, 1914,
33,761,667 and from December 1, 1914 to
November 23, 1915, I4.C1.084.

LAXATIVES and cathartics cause more constipation

N constipation. It conforms in all essentials to the require

Nujol is odorless and tasteless, absolutely neutral, and is
not digested or absorbed into the system. It acts merely
as a mechanical lubricant.
Nujol is not a drug. Its use will not give quick, tempor

the lining of the intestines, softening the intestinal con
