J OVER LOBBYISTS
House Members Grow Personal
Over Resolution to Investi
rUf-ALLY IS VOTED DOWN
(from StatI Corraapondent.) -
Lincoln, March (Special.) As it
looks now, the lobbyist will cost the
state o Nebraska more, this session
than any other piece of legislation
, which will come under consideration.
This is opt the fault ot tne loDDyist,
exceot perhaps that he i sa lobbyist.
Twice already during the session
has the lower house talked ana re
solved against these lobbyists, and
again today the entire morning ses
sion up to the time of the convening
of the joint .session, was spent in an
attempt to keep the lobbyist out of
the legislative game.
A resolution was introduced by
Osterman providing for a method of
investigation. He wanted tne toDuyisi
uruuglll uciyit au nutans".";,
Trumble Gets Angry.
This brought out a debate that at
times became almost personal. Trum-
h e was distrusted.
''You fellews are howling all the
time for fear of the lobbyist," he
shouted. "I have not been bothered
bv aiiv Inhhvist. In fact. I like to
meet people wno nave lacas on urns
betore us. 1 am willing to learn some
thing even from a lobbyist, but I am
not afreaid that I will 'become con
taminated if I talk with them. I want
my people to come here and talk to
me. We have been hearing about the
. majority in the house and the minor
;iv hut the worst bar to Brood legisla
tion in this house -is neither me of
these. It is the machine which runs
this house. I can name them if you
. want me to.
Cries of "name 'em; name 'em," were
shouted, but Trumble refused to do so
imply shouting back that he couH do
rand the members Knew it.
Could "Spit on lobbyists."
Declaring that it all depends on
"whose ox is gored," Mr. Richmond
ridiculed Mr. Taylor's professed dis
like of lobbyists. He referred to "Tay
lors' brainstorm" of last week, when
the gentleman from Custer broke out
with a denunciation of a former house
.nember whom he accused of being a
lobbyist for the Omaha Commercial
"And while he was delivering his
tirade against this gentleman," con
tinued Richmond, "I could have
turned around in my s&t and spit
on no fewer than three men who
were at the time on the floor of the
house lobbying for his own bill. There
were half a dozen others of the same
kind close at hand."
Taylor called on Richmond to
name them, but the latter said he
preferred not to indulge in personal
ities unless the house should call for
"I may say, however," remarked the
Douglas county representative, "that
some of them were former state of
ficials who are interested in legisla
tion Jiere. Right at this moment I
could turn around and spit on a man
who is lobbying here on matters he
is interested in."' (
Find the Man. '
Every member craned his neck to
discover the identity of the man re
ferred to. It was Railway Commis
sioner Tom Hall, sitting inside the
railing. Mr. Hall laughed with the
whole house, but stayed where he
was. A few minutes later he got up
and went out.
A substitute motion was offered,
but not voted upon, to have Speaker
Jackson act as inquisitor instead of
the committee on employes. The Os
terman resolution was voted down,
59 to 30.
'Ollis School Bill Passed.
' Two bills were read the tihrd time
and passed while the house was wait
ing for the joint session. One of these
was the Ollis bill to authorize the
reuistrictuig of counties for the es
tablishment of consolidated rural
schools and the levying of a county
school tax, ranging from 10 to IS
mills, for the support of such schools.
A bill to prohibit county judges
from either recommending or "knock
ing" on any attorney to a person hav
ing business in county court was the
other measure passed. .

TJlyde Sundblad, clerk of the county
court, has returned from Red Oak, la.,
where he testified in the suit brought
by the Red Oak Trust & Savings com
pany to have, the marriage of Daniel
1 Reifel, 67 years old, a wealthy citizen
of the town, and Ida Blanche Doctor,
S3 years old, annulled.
The couple obtained a marriage li
cense in Omaha on October 2, 1916,
and Rev. Oliver V. Baltzlcy, pastor
of the Kountze Memorial church, per
formed the ceremony. Reifel's son,
when the father returned to Red Oak
with his bride, had the trust company
appointed guardian in place cf his
mother, who had died just six weeks
previous to the time the. Red Oal; man
remarried. It was alleged that the
older Reifel was in- ompetent.
Mr. Sundblad said that the case was
settled out of court, the Red Oak
man s latest wife consenting to an an
nullment of the marriage for a mone
tary consideration. Reifel is now in a
private sanitorium at Des Moines.
Rev. Mr. Baltzley was subpoenaed
as a witness,' but Rev. C Franklin
Koch, his assistant, who had acted as
a witness at the marriage here, went
in his place. On account of the prom
inence of the elder Reifel the case at
tracted wide attention at Red Oak and

Lobeck Only Nebraskan to
Vote for Washington Wet
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, March 1. (Special
Telegram.) In the midst of confis
cating property "without due pro
cess," all but Lobeck of Nebraska's
members voting to put; the capitol
of the nation on the "dry" list, Judge
Kinkaid created the one bright spot
in an otherwise dreary round of roll
calls by demanding to Have his vote
for the bill counted "by unanimous
consent." Xhe judge1 stood before
the rostrum and..asked Speaker Clark
to allow him to vote on the propo
sition affecting the interests of the
When he claimed the right to vote
by unanimous consent, Congressman
Stafford of Wisconsin objected on the
ground that it would create a very
bad precedent. The speaker sus
tained the objection, but Kinkaid gets
into the record.
During the several votes taken on
the bill to make Washington "dry,"
W. J. Bryan came into the press gal
lery. He watched the procedure for
a while, followed the filibuster on the
Shepherd bill and then told this story
to The Bee representative: '
"There was an ancient individual
whose name was Moses, a man of
learning and great wisdom. And they
buried him in a tomb, in a lone moun
tain. Now there is another Moses
(Kinkaid) and the people have buriedj
mm Dy sending nini 10 congress lite
people know what vthey want."
When it was suggested to Mr.
Bryan that Judge Kinkaid was a hard
working raernWr of the house, he
said: "Yes, he's a good republican."
