Democratic Watchmen Unable
to Stop Vandals with
(Prom a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, . Aug. 14. (Special.)
Some day the state board which has
tlie qare of the state house in charge
will wake np to find that some indi
vidual has hitched to the old state
house and carried it off while the
democratic watchman is slumbering.
Five times within the last few
months the cigar stand and candy
counter has been raided and the con
tents carted away. Last night some
one entered tne Dunning, unscrewed
the brass- plates which hold the glass
over the cigar case and carted away
about half of the cigars therein
They took about all the candy'inside
and decamped after replacing the
glass and screwing back the clasps
ihe'method ot getting at the cigars
d candy was the same as used once
before, and while it must have taken
considerable time to unscew the
clasps, remove the glass and replace
it, nobody appears to know mucn
' abou,t it and the board not seem to
be very much interested.
For some time department heads
and their c erks have been complain
ine that electric light bulbs have
disanneared from their places and to
day one department discovered an
electric fan missing. The board, how
ever, takes little notice of the depre
dations and appears to care less.

Doc Millener Says Electricity
Is the Real Cause of Hay Fever
Comes now Dr. F. H. (Millener,
sage, experimenter and erstwhile cus
todian at Union Pacific headquarters,
with the theory that electricity is to
blame for hay fever.
Lest the region of hay fever vic
tims read only this far and then rush
out to order their homes installed
with gas and Ben Franklin's invention
cast into the discard, let it be said that
it's the electricity in the air and not
in the wires.
A hay fever victim, a clerk in an ad
joining office, came blub-blubbing
through Dr. Millener's stronchold
just as a tall, hungry-looking reporter
and a newspaper man sauntered in on
their quest for items of the day.
Lamping the hay fever sufferer, the
late Union Pacific wireless shark re
marked: "Electricity is indirectly the
cause of that man's malady."
"Zasso. How'szat." chorused the
lo make a short story a little
shorter, and translated from the sci
entific and technical to the parlance
of the layman. Dr. Millener's theory
is that pollen, which the doc says is
the stuff from flowers and plants that
floats through the air and puts the
"works" on hay fever sufferers, be
comes charged with electricity in its
passage through the ozone, creeps
into the victim's head and then gives
him a shock.
A few years ago, according to Dr.
Millener, bis duties included those of
cleaning motors, and he always no
ticed that hay fever attacked him
after the task was done.
It now seems that the only way out
of the matter for the hay fevr colony
is for the members to equip them
selves with specialty constructed hel
mets, like the gas masks the Euro
pean soldiers wear in the trenches, so
as to ward off the electrically
charged, deadly pollen, whatever

TO FIND REVENUE
Senators Trying to Agree on
Measure That Will Meet
PREPAREDNESS COST HIGH
Washington, Aug 14. The impor
tance of the $200,000,000 revenue bill
to which senators today devoted many
hours of deliberation in caucus is be
ing impressed upon leaders by the fact
that appropriations of the session now
nearing completion have broken all
With passage this week of the
$50,000.00(1 ship purchase bill and
probable aproval by the house of the
senate's gigantic naval bill, the appro
priations of the Sixty-fourth congress
will have exceeded the previous high
record by at least a half billion dollars.
While exact figures cannot be com
puted until the gavel has fallen on the
last supply bill of the session, the ag
gregate appropriation by congress for
all purposes probably will aproxi
mate $1,700,000,000 as against $1,114,
000,000 for the Sixty-third congress.
Besides regular supply bills which
total as they now stand $1,387,206,580,
congress will have added when the
shipping hill is approved more than
$90,000,000 for special purposes. There
also have been contract authorizations
amounting to about $207,000,000, all of
which would bring the grand aggre
gate to $1,685,000,000 with the uncer
tain general deficiency appropriation
bill still in the making to be added at
the end of the session. '
Special appropriations include $20,-
000,000 for a government nitrate
nlant: $6,000,000 for good roads: $15.-
000.000 for rural credits, and $50,100,

To Extend Life of
London, Aug. 14. Premier Asquith
introduced in the House of Commons
today a bill to extend the life of the
present parliament for eight months
or until the end of next May.
Mr. Asquith said if was not the

Parliament at this time to take up

Dealing wtih a suggestion that the
franchise should be extended to all
soldiers and munitions workers, Mr.
Asquith said there were the gravest
difficulties in the way, and that there
was serious objection from a military
viewpoint to holding a general elec
tion among the troops ii the field. He
"General enfranchisement has been
brought fate to face with another
problem. What are we going to do
with the women?"
He was bound to say, the premier
went on, that representatives of the
women had presented to him a per
fectly unanswerable case. They were
content to abide by the present fran
chise, but would urge their, claims if

That the decision of the cabinet
that the undertaking of .lew fran
chise and registration reform in the
midst of a great war was too com
, lex and Controversial a problem,'
was announced by Premier Asquith
in the House of Commons. At a
time, said the premier, when the
war has reached a happy, promising
stage, and when it more than ever
required the absolute concentration
of the government, it was impossible
to consider the large questions in
volved in a revision of the franchise.
He further implied that any new bill
for franchise reforms in the future
must oi necessity include women.
After a brief criticism by Sir Ed
ward Carson, who urged that eery
combatant, irrespective of age, was
there was no, reason why the wo-
man's claim should stand in the way
of giving all combatants, a vote, the
house passed the first reading of the

Parliament. A separate bill bringing
into force a new register on the basis
of present qualifications on May 31
next, would be introduced in the
There is no doubt that one of the
main reasons for the government's
avoidance of the franchise problem ,
was the threat of the women that
they would refuse to recognize any
change in the franchise in favor of
fighting men which failed at the
same time to recognize women's
rights to the franchise.
