SLOAN IN THE NEGATIVE
. IKrAn a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington. Feb. 21. (Special
Telegram.) "Bone dry, bone dry,"
cclioed lliroughout the house of rep
resentatives today and "bone dry" it
is, so far as prohibition states are
concerned, for by a vote of 321 to 72
the house voted to concur in the Reed
amendment to the postofticc appro
priation bill making it a crime to im
port liquor into "dry" states.
W ith the exception of Representa
tive Sloan every member from Ne
braska voted to concur in Senator
Reed's amendment, the result being
regarded as a triumph for the "wets"
un the theory that al rigid enforce
ment of prohibition laws and the ex
clusion of liquor for personal use will
bring a revulsion of sentiment in
favor of a larger personal liberty.
It is counted as one of the most
far-reaching prohibition measures ill
yean because it will make absolutely
dry states which now permit ship
ments in limited quantities.
Every effort to change the amend
ment was defeated overwhelmingly
Cfies of "bone dry" rang throughout
the house and the sentiment swept
the house until the last vote for con
currence' was cast. Members who at
tempted to explain that they were
prohibitionists at heart, but stood for
state's rights, were greeted with
The amendment, incomparably the
most far-reaching prohibition legisla
tion ever approved by either house of
congress, would raiser an absolute bar
rier against the shipment of liquor
into fifteen states where it can be im
ported legally now and where millions
of dollars worth is consumed an
nually. It would add to the "bone
dry" territory about one-third of con
tinental United Mates.
Affects Twenty-two States.
Of the twenty-two states which will
be prohibition territory on July 1
when the amendment would be effec
tive, only eight have forbidden im
portation of intoxicants lor personal
use. The fourteen around which the
provision would erect a non-importa
tion barrier arc Alabama, Colorado,
Georgia. Iowa. Maine. Mississippi,
-Nebraska, North Dakota. North Caro
lina. Oklahoma. South Carolina, South
Dakota. Virginia and West Virginia.
Most of these have set no limitation
on the amount that can be brought
in f,-r individual use. but in several
cases the amendment would nullify
directly state statutes expressly per
mitting importation of stipulated
amounts per capita.
In addition, Michigan. Montana
and Indiana have enacted prohibition
laws which will put them into the
prohibition column, subject to the
provisions of the Reed amendment.
The amendment marks virtually
I lie only step ever taken by the fed
eral government, aside trom the in
ternal revenue laws, to extend its con
trol over the liquor traffic through
the s-tp.tes. It is the only important
lederal legislation affecting liquor
shipments excepting th Wcbb-Ken-
yon law, which merely gave federal
force to state regulations by provid
ing that no liquor shall be imported
into states which forbid its importa
tion. ' Text of Amendment.
"Whoever shall order, purchase or
cause intoxicating liquors to be trans
ported in interstate commerce, the
amendment stipulates, "except for
scientific, medicinal or mechanical
purposes into any state or territory
prohibiting the manufacture or sale
therein of intoxicating liquors for
beverage purposes, shall be punished

Dealers Against Fake Adver

Old Cut Price Sales.
ARE TO STAND BY WILSON
Community interests and good
roads were among tle movements en
dorsed Wednesday afternoon by the
Xebraska . Retail Clothiers' associa--tion
at the closing session.
They endorsed 1-ccnt postage, con
demned fake advertising, recom
mend that the clothiers co-operate
in their respective towns to elminate
cut-price sales out of season, agree
upon a clearance sale period, favored
the passage of the Stephcns-Ashurst
bill, favored the establishment in the
University of Xebraska of an exten
sion department, covering matters
beneficial to the retailers; vowed to
stand behind the president of the j
United States in his policy of up- j
holding the honor and dignity of the'
country at home and abroad; declared!
themselves in harmony with the na-j

Change of Officers.
F. H. Barclay, Pawnee City, was
re-elected president, P. C. Perryman.
Ord, re-elected vice president; C. C.
Wescott, re-elected secretary -treasurer.
A change was made in the makeup
of the directdrate. Instead of having
but two directors to act with the of
ficers, a directorate-of six men was
made up, one from each congressional
district. They are as follows:
First district, O. N. Mag-ee. Lincoln. '
Second district, Ed Matthtesen. lilalr.
Third district, F. E. Gamble, Wayne.
Fourth district, W. G. Uhley. Fairbury.
Fifth district, Al Oalusha. McCook.
Sixth district, L. J. Fox, Scotts Bluff.
Omaha was again chosen as the
meeting place for next year, over
Lincoln, which city came into the
field as a stiff competitor. The vote
was 45 to 12, though for a time before
the vote was taken it looked as though
Lincoln had a good chance.
"Intensified Retail Advertising" was
discussed by Charles C. Percy, di
rector of sales promotion. Joseph &
Keiss company of Cleveland. He held
that a merchant must know the mes
sage he wants to convey in his ad
vertising, but held that is not all that
is necessary. "The ad is no good wis
less it has the proper attraction value.
If your ad don't get hold of the read
era," he said, "the copy is lost. Con
vincing sincerity is also necessary.
Xot only must you convince your
readers that you are telling the truth
yourself, but you must overcome a
certain prejudice which still exists,
because in the past advertising has
not always been wholly truthful.
Thanks to the Associated Ad clubs,
however, they are' doing a great work
in the way of promoting truthful ad
vertising.' Wilson Decides

TO REPAIR THE CAPIT0Jsf
Item Included Oivingfjll
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 21. (Special.)
Counting in the general salaries bill
prepared by the committees last week
and the general maintenance bill rec
ommended 'by the committee of the
house today, a total of more than
$4,000,000 will be required to meet re
quirements of the two measures.
The regular appropriation called
for in the maintenance bill is $367,540
more than the bill of the last session,
but no comparisons can be made be
cause of special boards and commis
sions this session, which did not have
to be provided for the last session.
The universiay, normal school and
state aid bridge fund arc omitted
from the bill because they derive
their maintenance from a special tax
levied for their respective purposes.
The university levy is supplemented
by some direct appropriations to be
provided for m some other bills.
Repairs for Capitol.
The committee proposes to put the
matter ot a new state capitol directly
up, to the legislature and has incor
porated in the bill $50,000 for rcRairs
on the building. It is understood
that six of the eleven members voted
to put this in, but two more opposed
to the appropriation because it would
be a waste of the state's money to put
any more repairs upon the building.
Of the six who voted for the item,
two stated that they would oppose
the expenditures on the floor. They
voted that way merely in order that
the question might be presented to
the house at an early date. The full
committee, includes eleven members,
and it is believed a majority ofsthem
are favorable to a new capitol.
It is the general understanding
among the members of the finance
committee. Chairman Rieschick stated,
that if the capitol repairs item should
be rejecte4 by the house the commit
tee will then report out the Richmond
bill. Rouse RoJI No. I, for a new
building, to be i&1en up in committee
of the whole. Those who favor a
new capitol will 'try to have the
$50,000 for repairs stricken out.
Mileage Books Under Ban.
A radical departure from former
years is the inclusion of otic section
which forbids the use of railroad
mileage books by any state officer
or employe. Every person traveling
on business for the slate must buy
a ticket and take a receipt on each
trip. The receipt must show between
what points he travels. Moreover,
no money must be used at all for
traveling outside the state, except
upon a full and satisfactory showing
that it was necessary for the trans
action of public business. The bill
forbids the drawing of any warrant
for traveling expenses, other than as
The culting out of mileage books
and the restrictions placed on travel
ing outside the state are intended to
slop abuses which have been prac
ticed to a considerable extent in the
past. Some departments have volun
tarily ceased using mileage already.
License Money to Treasurer.
The food commission, fire commis
sion and all beards of secretaries and
examiners that live on fees collected
by themselves are placed on a basis
of specific appropriations, and all
fees collected in excess of the
amounts fixed will go into the state
general fund. A separate bill is
being prepared which will contain an

Upon the whole, he continued, the

Chicago Board of Trade to
Demand Government Step
in Unless Relief Comes.
1.0.0. AND ROADS HELPLESS
Chicago, Feb. 21. It was authorita
tively stated this afternoon that unless
action adequate to solve the. car
shortage situation has been taken by
Friday next, the administration of the
Chicago Board of Trade will appeal
to President Wilson and congress to
take the situation out of the hands of
Ihe railroads and of the Interstate
Commerce commission as might be
done in time elf war, and place it in
the hands of a body with dictatorial
powers for the lime being.
In a public statement this afternoon
J. P. Griffin, president of the Chicago
Board of Trade, asserted that in addi
tion to 40,000,000 bushels of grain in
Chicago awaiting shipment, there are
from 50,000,000 to 75,000.000 more in
country elevators held up because of
the congestion here.
"I have tin hesitancy in declaring
that both the commission and the rail
roads are completely overwhelmed
and liave lost grasp of the situation."
said Mr. Griffin. "As a mailer of fact
the intervention of the Interstate
Commerce commission has been
harmful rather than otherwise and the
method of relief insisted upon, or of
fered by them has been fanciful and
without any substantial results."
The statement asserts that unless a
remedy is found the demoralization
will extend to all commodities. It
"I am willing to predict that within
less than thirty days the commerce
of Ibis country will be prostrated un
less some laTgc and more influential
power than the railroads and the In
terstate Commerce commission is
placed in control of the matter."
' Cheapest Food Commodity.
Mr. Griffin said that grain is today
the cheapest food commodity in the
world. lie said that prices here at
present are but 20 per cent above the
level which has ruled during the war,
while "potatoes and produce gen
erally arc selling from 200 to 1,000 per
cent higher than the level of a year
"The distress at consuming points,"
he continued, "is clearly demon
strated by the prices prevailing for
spot grain. While the value at Chi

moderate, grain for immediate de
