"Why, said the .Custer county
statesman. "Billv" Sunday, the man
who reformed Omaha, quit the base
ball business and .went to preaching
because there was more money in it.
When I look upon some of the mem
bers here I wonder if you have
enough red blood in you to fight for
the Stars and Stripes if the nation
should call for you. Not on your life!
Let's give Nebraska a. clean sport.
Let's be live ones."

"When I go down town to the Young

OPOH OLD CAPITOL
Structure Is Gradually railing
Down, Say Engineering
LOW LIBRAY HAZZAKD
(From a Staff Corrponlent)
Lincoln; Feb. 9. (Special.) What
the lower house of the legislature will
do to secure a new state house did
not develop last night. After a speech
by Richmond, introducer of the bill
for a new building, Greenwalt, Charles
Wooster and one or two others op
posed the building of a new state
house at this time, Wooster being op
posed to any new state house on the
Wooster said that he had not ex
amined the walls, but he was sure that
the state engineer, architect and state
officers who had examined them were
mistaken. He thought the old shell
was good enough for anybody and
of the present state officers did not
want to stay in it there were plenty
of people who would. He said the
capital ought to be moved anyway.
Walls Have Bulged.
Representative Craddock told of the
investigation which had been made
by the committee appointed by the
governor and the condition in which
they had found the walls. He showed
how the walls had bulged nntil the
floor sills of the house chamber in
some instances only rested two or
three inches on the walls. The out
side wall and the inside wall of the
structure had drawn away from each
other until there was a large space
between, he said. .
Assistant State Engineer Steckle
burg went into the matter I na scien
tific way, telling of the masnrements
which had been made and the effect
the water which was continually leak
ing through and running down be
tween . the walls was having. The
freezing and thawing was causing an
expansion which was getting more
dangerous every winter. Asked what
amount it would take to put in a new
foundation ad fix the wall and the
roof he gAve figures aggregating
State Risk on Library.
Chief Clerk Harry Lindsay of the
supreme court and custodian of the
library was called for. Mr. Lindsay
said that he was urging the building
of a new Capitol building from the
standpoint of just having a new build
ing. But he wanted the committee
to know that Nebraska had a law li
brary and that it had the reputation
of being next to the best and most
complete library in the United States.
"This library," said Mr. Lindsay, "is
absolutely at the mercy of the ele
ments. Every time there is a rain
we are compelled to use cuspidors and
buckets to catch the water to keep
it from eoinir throueh onto the books.
There is absolutely no protection from
fire. Conditions are such that it a
fire should get a start in this building
the whole place would be burned and
this library, estimated to be worth
more than half a million dollars,
would be destroyed.
"I am not advocating the building
of a new state house especially. I am
just telling you committeemen the
conditions that contain here and it is
up to you to do as you deem best.
Regarding the risk in case of fire I
desire to call your attention to a pri
vate law library which one of the
supreme court judges has in his office.
The rate on that library here in the
state house is about $16 a year per
thousand. The same library when he
had it at his home in a frame building
with a twenty-foot building on each
side, cost him only about $2 per thou
sand. Therefore you can see how the
fire. insurance men look upon the state
capitol building as a risk. This library
is absolutely the only property in the
state house carrying insurance. The
matter speaks for itself."

GISL STRANGLED TO DEATH
Ord, Neb., Feb. 9. Bloodhounds,
brought from Albion, were last night
set on the trail of a young man sus
pected of the murder of Alice Par

They traced him from his home to

the Parkot home they led directly to
the place where the car had been left
standing. Again put en the scent
where the antomobile was abandoned

home. The young man is Louis
Kamerad, aged 21. He is now in
custody in the county jail, and, while
there are some muttering of summary
punishment without due process of
law, no disorder is feared.
