Hop kins introduced in the house a reso lution, which, under the rules, will lie over for two days before it is voted upon.

Board of Agriculture To Re-Elect Old Officers (Prom Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln. Jan. 16. (Special.) There will probably be little or no change in the personnel of the official roster of the State Board of Agriculture at the election tomorrow. It is said there appears to be a senti ment very strongly in favor of Presi dent J. A. Ollis holding for another term and it also appears that the other officials will be continued without "op position. Secretary Mellor, with his record for doing things, appears to be strongly entrenched in the office and there appears to be little or no senti ment this year to deny him an elec tion, although the names of E. R. Pur cell of Broken Bow and E. R. Daniel son of Osceola have been mentioned. Neither of these apepars to aspire for the job.

The land should have been held for posterity. Which is beat? Land that people can own, Improve, build homes on and pay taxes on, and thus help all others who pay taxes, or land held non productive and nontaxpaying7 Victor Wilson Files Bond; Only Commissioner to Do So (From a Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln, Jan. 16. (Special.) -It At torney General Reed's contention is right, that a railway commissioner is not a railway commissioner unless he has filed bond of $50,000, as required of other state officers if this conten tion is right, then Nebraska has only one railway commissioner. He is Victor E. Wilson of Stroms burg, whose $50,000 bond has been filed With Secretary of State Pool. Neither Commissioner Hall nor Com missioner Taylor has given bond, and as far as that matters, no railway com missioner has done so since the com mission was established by constitu tional amendment in 1906. The commissioner, however, con tend that they arc not endowed with the executive powers of state officers, and they are consequently relieved from the bond.
