Sherman County Member Said

PASS ANNEXATION BILL
(From a Staff Correspondsnt.)
Lincoln, Feb. 13. (Special.) As
tht outcome of the altercation which
took place in the lobby of the Lincoln
hotel last niftht between Neilscn of
Douglas and Trumble of Sherman, in
which the latter slapped the Omaha
man on the eye, Shannon of Douglas
and Trumble staged another turn this
afternoon on the floor of the house in
which the former made charges re
flecting upon Trumble as chairman of
the corporations committee and the
latter retorted by using the small and
Ir developed in the colloquy be
tween Shannon and Trumble that the
bill, II. R. 128 requiring enclosure of
entrances and exists of street cars,
was voted upon by the committee last
I hursriay and instructions given the
chairman to report it out for the gen
eral tile, with an amendment allow
ing the companies until January 1,
WS, to make the required change in
their cars. Chairman 1 rumble, how
ever, did not report the bill, but held
it because the amendment had not
Bill is Postponed.
In the committee session Monday,
.Mr. Dafoe moved to reconsider, and
a motion was then adopted to recom
mend it for indefinite postponement,
the vote being 6 to 3.
Mr. Shannon moved in the house
this afternoon that the bill be placed
on the general file, notwithstanding
this reconsideration and reversal. He
charged Trumble with bad faith and
playing into the hands of the corpor
ations, in not reporting the bill after
last week's meeting. He claimed to
have had several talks with Trumble,
and each time, he declared, the latter
told him the bill would be reported
out, when the amendment was ready.
"I took him at his word as a gentle
man," said Shannon, "and trusted him
to do as he said he would. I was
amazed when 1 heard of what hap
pened yesterday. Is that a fair deal.
Is that the kind of men we have for
chairmen of our committee, and are
we going to let them throttle bills by
carrying them around in their
All sorts of charges were bandied
about, including one that the bill was
not introduced in good faith.
Instructions to Committee.
The whole controversy "was ended
when the house adopted a motion by
Peterson to refer the bill back fo the
corporations committee. Chairman
Trumble then announced a special
meeting, immediately after adjourn
ment, for the purpose of considering
it again. '
To guard against such, occurrences
hereafter, a motion was made by Mr.
Richmond, and adopted by the house,
requairing the chairman to take a rec
ord of the roll call whenever a vote is
had in a committee on indefinite post
ponement of a bill.
School of Irrigation.
For once the protest of Chairman
Reischick of the finance committee
availed little, for the house in com
mittee of the whole advanced to third
reading the Stearns bill, establishing
a school of irrigation at Scottsbluff,
and another, the La Bounty bill, ap
propriating $5,000 for a district fair
at Maywood. Mr. Reischick and oth
ers were afraid that it was setting a
bad example and that other parts of
the state would want appropriations
for fairs, but by a tight margin the
latter went through by a vote of 46
Mr. Good descovered that the Bates
hill, legalizing boxing, still occupied
1 he head of the general file and want
ed to know why this was thus. "That
bill was sent back for redrafting," said
he. "and has no place where it is."
Bates promptly announced that he
was willing the bill should go to the
foot of the last, and to the foot it
