NEW CAPITOL TALK
Number of Last Session Known
as "Economists," Have
WT.LL THEY SPEND COIN?
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Nov. 28. (Special.)
Whether the coming session of the
Nebraska legislature will undertake
to carry out the ideas of the last ses-(
sion on economy is worrying the
heads of -several departments, which
arc now already pressed for money
to carry on their work without creat
ing a deficiency.
Forty-six of the old members of
the lower house two years ago have
been returned this year and of this
number eight were members of the
finance ways and means committee
which reported 'to the house big cuts
in appropriations of the last session.
These "are Norton, chairman; Green
wait, Ostermann, Keischick, HofT
meistcr, Fuller, democrats, and
Steams and Mosaley, republicans.
Whether Mr. Norton will care to take
unon himself the duties of chairman
of this committee again is not known,
but it is understood that he is not
anxious to tackle the job again.
In the senate fifteen old members
are returning, while those coming
back who belonged to the finance
committee, which was instrumental in
stopping the wholesale decapitation
of appropriations, are Kohl, Wallace
Wilson, E. E. Howell and Bushee.
Appropriations to Be High.
Because of the probable necessary
appropriation for repairs to the state
house, or the building of a new one,
it is pretty well known that the ap
propriations OI lite turning SCS3IUII Will
be high and all effortsto make a rec
ord of economy mav go glimmering,
although if the sentiment in favor of
sacrificing efficiency tor the saKe ot
economy eoes through, not only the
state may suffer because of such feel
ing, but Nebraska may be humiliated
by having to build a state house which
will not only be a discredit to the
state but insufficient to meet its de
mands in years to come.
' How to Pay Bill.
Some members favor a building to
cost not less than $3,000,000. Some
believe the building started as a his
torical society tuiilding several years
ago should be fmtshed at once. When
finished move the offices of the state
house to that building and then en
tirely pull down the present capitol
building and build new at one time.
By doing this they insist tnat a special
lew cnulrl be made and collected each
year as the demandsof the building
required, as .is now peing done for
university extension. When the capi
tol building is completed the supreme
court and state library could remain
in the historical society building, with
that society, away from the hustle and
bustle of public affairs, while the regu
lar offices could be returned to the
Another plan is to make an appro-
priation sufficient to erect a new east
wing after plans have been made for
an entirely new building. Some op
pose this plan unless such action is
taKen wnicn win insure tne completion
of the new building entire as soon
as the east wing has been completed.
They insist that it would be folly to
begin a new building and leave it to
future legislatures to appropriate
sufficient funds to complete the same.
No State Aid for
Bridge Over Blue
' Lincoln, Nov. 28. The State Board
of Irrigation today refused the re
quest of citizens of Fairbury for state
aid in the construction of a bridge
across the Blue river. The law re
quires that a stream shall be 175 feet
wide before state aid can be given,
and the Board of Irrigation said it
found that the Blue river came within
the law only through the artificial
widening of the stream by a dam.

. Matron Waggenori In charge of the West
hospital, Saturday morning reported that
there was no cause for alarm concerning
any of her patients. Mrs. 9tone's condition
was reported to bo about the same.
A talk with the farm superintendent re

under good headway, and the work for this
time of the year is progressing nicely.
Saturday a large number from here took
advantage of the nice weather and went to

an entertainment or two given at the chapel

Mindcn, Neb., Nov. 28. (Special
Telegram.) A complaint has been
filed against D. R. Landes of Lincoln
by Hans Hansen, Hastings, charging
Landes with the embezzlement of
moneys handled by him during his
service as agent-for the Axtell Lum
ber company in Axtell, Neb.
Landes was local manager of the
lumber company a number of years,
and during that time, .it is charged,
embezzled money belonging to the
company. The discovery was made
three years ago, and nothing has been
done toward a prosecution until now,
althoueh he has been in Lincoln with
in reach of the officers during all the
It is presumed trie prosecution is
an outgrowth of- a suit pending in
Gage county for the recovery on
some notes against the son-in-law.
Grant Butman, who signed them and
which were to take up the deficiency,
caused by the alleged embezzlement
and which notes the son-in-law is re
sisting, on the . ground of having
signed them under duress and rorce.
Burman is a prominent business
man of Wyrrtore and stands high with
all parties. Mr. and Mrs. Landes were
highly respected at Axtell and public
sentiment there is aroused over the
apparent effort to prosecute, in order
to collect the debts of the father, from
the son-in-law and daughter. Several
of the substantial citizens offered to
go on Landes' bond, four appearing
this morning voluntarily for that
purpose. M. D. King,, L. W. Hague
and C. P. Aflderbery appear for the
defendant and L. C. Paulson, county
attorney, tor the county.
