Little Chance for the Allies
To Get Jobs in the House
(Krom a Buff Correspondent.)
i Lincoln,, .Jan. 3. (Special.) From
the looks of the committee on em
ployes .representing the house, , it
would appear that the allies will have
little chance to get in on the jobs and
that the Irish, English and French
might, as; well considered themselves
submarined and flee to their homes.
The chairman of the committee is
Hoffmeister of Chase, while his as
sociates are Dau, another German,
and Reishiclc, who wilt not be able
to prove an alibi because of his name.
icH-only tram-this standpoint, but
from the one of landing a place, this
committee is an interesting one.
Every , man is for - the i strictest
economy along the job line and ft
would not be a surprise if 'they re-,
quired, every member, to look after
his own cuspidor and waste basket.

in order to be sure that Nebraska
had gone democratic, was the princi
pal business transacted by the two
houses this afternoon. The joint
committee pronounced the election a
success and adjourned.
In the senate it appeared at first.
from occasional side remarks, that an
attempt mieht be made to have the
explanation of the vote of Senator
Howell on tne election ot president
pro tern expunged from the record.
The other four Douglas county mem
ber did not like the remark made
by Howell, which they claimed re
flected npon their integrity as mem
bers, but the members thought it
would be a good thing to let the
record stand as it might be of use
later in the session, so when the time
came for such a motion absolute quiet
A communication from A. E. Shel
don of the reference bureau notified
the senate that the Nebraska army
had abdicated from its quarters on
the third floor and that the bureau
would be doing business at the old
stand by tomorrow. It is the plan of
the new procedure scheme to have
all the bills possible censored by the
legislative reference bureau in order
to prevent duplications.
Both branches adjourned after can
vassing the vote, until 10 o'clock to
morrow morning. 1

France during the year more than
doubled its purchase here, but still
fell a bit short of a billion dollars.
Canada was third with $600,000,000.
Beside the central powers, the three
neutrals of northern Europe alone of
