RIESCHICK WATCHES CASH
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 8. (Special.) Pro
hibiting the advertising of goods of
any kind in newspapers was the freak
amendment sent up to the desk of the
chief clerk of the house today, when
House Roll No. 88, backed by the Ne
braska Federation of Retailers, was
up for consideration in committee of
the whole. The bill was intended to
do away with trading stamps, but be
fore it had run the gauntlet of amend
ments nearly everything imaginable
had been attempted in the way of
loading it up.
Peterson would allow a merchant
to give coupons with his goods, re
deemable at his own store. This
amendment was supported by Reis-
ner, Leidigh and others, because thev
believed a merchant had a right to
give his cash customers a discount in
any way he desiretf. Mr. Hostetler
was afraid the amendment would
make the bill unconstitutional. The
amendment was defeated. Waite then
sent up his anti-advertisine amend
ment, but that. too. was defeated
Other amendments were offered, but
all ot them went to the scrap heap,
I he hill was then indefinitely post
poned, 48 to 30.
The Stearns bill establishing a
school of irrigation at Scottsbluff was
ordered engrossed for third reading
Hut Kieschick had heard someone sa
something about an appropriation and
it had such a jarring effect on his
;inti-appropriation system that it
aroused him from his otherwise more
or less peaceful sleep and he had the
bill sent back for more consideration.
The bill to consolidate Benson and
other towns with Omaha was ad
vanced to third reading. Mr. Rich

Senators Live Up to Tradition
When They Discuss Telegram
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 8. (Special.) The
Nebraska state senate descended from
its lofty position as the "dignified"
body of the legislature and killed a
lot of perfectly good and valuable
time and otherwise lived up to tra
ditions today, just because Senator
h.d Howell had received a tele
gram of which the following is a true
Osceola. Neb.: Woman's organization of
Polk county urges you to promote suffering.
After the senators had joked and
"lolled" over the matter, they finally
got sore and everybody sent up all
the communications they had receievd
and one senator sent up his letter
file, all because the lieutenant gover
nor had ruled that all communications
coming to the senators ' were privi
leged to be read before the honorable
The message was finally disposed
of by a substitute to the substitute
motion srnt up by Adams of Dawes,
placing consideration of the communi
cation for May 1, although McAllis
ter protested that proper considera
tion could not be given the matter
because the first of May would be
the morning after the night before.
Senator Tanner remarked that a
day should be set aside for the read

(FYoin a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 8. (Special.) Rea
sons why Nebraska should have a
new state house and the cost It
would entail upon each taxpayer,
were given in an arugmcnt in favor
of the passage of House Roll No. 1
by its author, Representative Henry
C. Richmond, before a joint commit
tee of the house and senate this evening.
There were other speakers, but the
remarks of Mr. Richmond covered
the proposition in such an instructive
way that they met with a great deal
of attention. Mr. Richmond said in
f Ilre fs the capltol nituatton tn a nut
shell. First, no we need a nw bulminr?
is I hero a demand for It? Second, is the
state able and amply able to pay for tt ?
Thin question must be answered tn the affir
mative and the proof Is overwhelming-.
It In a matter now of almost public
rommiHeratlon that the capltol building in
unsafe, unsightly and unsanitary. That It
In vastly inadequate for the accommoda
tion of the irrowlnff demands, and that at
lenat the east section of the structure must
be supplanted with a new 'building soon.
House Roll No. I provides for the con
struction of a capltol build ins: to cost 13,
600,000. to bo raised by an annual mill levy.
It Is Intended that the levy shall run over
a termr of years and It Is comparatively
easy to pay for a now build Ins; In this way.
i:ndnr the terms of this bill a new capltol
building might he commenced' before the
next session of the legislature and within
si, eight or ten years, section by section,
it would romo to completion and the tax
pares would scarcely miss the money they
An annual mill levy would produce, oc
enrding to the 1916 valuation, the sum of
$f00,27 a year.
It would not he a great burden to the
taxpayers. Take York county as an exam
ple. The average appraised valuo Is about
180 an acre for land there. Thus it would
coat the average owner of a quarter section
of land In York counly exactly 2.57. Of
course, (he tax on land In western Nebraska
would be considerably less.
According to the valuation tn 116 the
building of a new state house under the
terms proposed in this bill would cost the
average farmer in Adams county. $1.80; in
Boone county, $1.40; in ltox Butte county,
20c; In Buffalo county, Jl.Ofi: In Jlutler
county. $2.44; In Cuming county, $2.63; In
Jodgo county, $.60; In Furnae county, 80c:
in Hamilton county, $2.62; in Howard
county, $1.28; in Jefferson county, $1.98; in
Kimball county, 20c; in Madison county,
$1.90; in Seward county, $3.46; in Thurs
