Accepts Norton Substitute and
x Defeats Efforts of Douglas
(From a 8taff Correspondent.)
Jiincoln, March 13. (Special
fTelegram.) After a hot discussion
lasting nearly all of yesterday and
part of this forenoon, the house ac
cepted the Norton substitute, senate
' File No. 213, of the compensation
bills, and sent to the scrap heap
House Roll No. 525 and House Roll
No. 44.
Douglas county members succeeded
only in one thing, namely, raising the
maximum compensation for perma
nent disability or loss of members
from 60 to 75 per cent of wages dur
ing a specified period of time.
Similar to Senat. Bill.
Norton's substitute measure is the
aame as the one which the senate
committee has agreed upon. It has
been amended in the house, on mo
tion by Mr. Peterson, so that an in
jured employe may sue his employer
for damages where the latter fails to
comply with the laws governing
safety appliances and other precau
tionary regulations. In all other cases
compensation is to be according to
the scale fixed in the bill.
Another amendment, proposed by
Mr. Ainley, making the act inapplica
ble unless five or more persons are
employed, was incorporated in the
i Mr. Keegan wanted to insert a pro
viso allowing 50 per cent of wages for
:life in case of facial disfigurement, but
it was voted down, 26 to 48. He later
proposed to pay 100 per cent of wages
-for life for the loss of both ears or
(two-thirds of the nose, but this was
'changed to 50 per cent. An amend-
Iment by Mr. Shannon raising the
maximum compensation from $12 to
$15 per week and the minimum from
$ 6to $8 lost by the vote of 30 to 46.
It was on Shannon's suggestion
that thescale of benefits was raised
from 60 per cent to 75-per cent of
.wages. The vote o nthis was, 46 to 34.
j Shannon Accuses T rumble'.
A spicy exchange of words took
place between Messrs. Shannon and
;iTrumble, the former accusing the lat
ter of working for the packing house
corporations, because he. owns stock
in the Packers' National bank of
South Omaha. Trumble retorted with
the statement that members "had bet
ter keep your eye on a man who tells
you to watch somebody else." .Trum
ble claimed that the bill which Shan
non and his Douglas county col
leagues favored would, if enacted,
have the effect of repealing the pres
ent workmen's compensation law.
The statement was made by Shan
non that he was rcpreseting the labor
ing men, and that the State Federa
tion of Labor had voted unanimously
in is convention at Fremont in iavor
of repealing the present law.

House Increases Amount for

Forty Thousand.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, March (Special.)
One indication that the republicans
are alive, though not appearing to be
very much in the limelight, was shown
in the discussion on the federal good
roads appropriation bill when the
Stearns amendment raising the levy
was carried and the bill sent to third
reading. The vote was U to 27.
Whether the republican house cau
cus took any action on the Stearns
amendment, minority members (lis
agree. Sonic o( them sav that an in
formal expression was taken in the
caucus, but nothing was done to bind
the members. On the roll call in the
house adopting the Stearns amend
ment six republicans voted in the
negative. They were Messrs. Axtell,
Behrens, Conley, Lambert, Parkinson
and Keisner.
Goes to Third Reading.
The federal aid bill, which was un
der discussion at the tune of the mix
up between Reisncr and Ainlay, was
advanced to third reading, after the
tax levy it carries had been increased
from .4 mill to .65 mill, and the appro
priation tor the next biennium trom
$320,000 to $640,000. The amendment
was opposed by the following demo

Another amendment, nrefbosed by
Mr. Auten, providing that no part of
the state appropriation to match fed-
erad aid tunds should be used on
paved or hard surface roads, was de
feated. 36 to 60.
Under the terms of the bill a county
which desires to supplement the funds
received from the state and federal
government to aid in road construc

Howard Votes With
Republicans, to
Break Senate Tie
(From a Staff Correspondents
Lincoln, Neb., March 13. (Special
Telegram.) It was up to Lieutenant
Governor Howard to break a tie this
morning and on a motion to post
pone appointment of a senate sifting
committee, which stood 15 to 15, he
voted with the republicans and m
surgent democrats to postpone ao
tion until tomorrow. The insurgent
democrats were Albert, Beal, Crap
pell, Gates, Howe.ll, Oberlies and
Sawyer. Bushee and Spirk, republi
cans, voted with the democratic ma
chine. .
Consideration of the personnel of
the sifting (committees of both houses
will probably go over until tomor
row, or perhaps later, because of dif
ferences which have arisen in both
houses and which the majority wishes
to iron out before taking any chances.
The action of the eight democrats
who went over to the republicans in
the senate and carried the day with
the assistance of Lieutenant Governor
Howard, lias aroused the house ma
jority' to a realization that the credit
for what real legislation may be ac
complished, is likely to go to the re
publican minority, who can rule
things if the independent anti-machine
democrats join with the min overrid
ing the heavily lade nhouse machine.
In a desperate appeal to the in
surgents, Chairman Taylor of the
democratic caucus with the assistance
of Chairman Reischick of the finance
committee, today secured the names
of thirt-yone democrats to a call for
a caucans this afternoon after the
house adjourns. It is expected i that
then- some political sop will be handed
to the insurgents, hoping thereby to
keep them in line.
Democratic Caucus Chairman Hen
ry of Colfax proposed as the senate
sifting committee Mattes of Otoe,
chairman; Bennett, Kohl, Samuelson,
Adams, Spirk and Bushee. The last
two are republicans.
As a substitute motion Senator Mc
Mullen of Gage, speaking for the re
publican minority, proposed as the
committee Beal of Custer, chairman;
Oberlies, Howell, Gates, Soost, Spirk
and Bushee.
The fortunes of the bone dry bill
are said to hinge on tne outcome of
this contest.

Wrestling Bout. (
(From a staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Neb., March 1.1. (Special
Telegram.) The house was thrown
into confusion just before the noon
recess when Reisncr of Thomas and
Ainlay of Nance came together after
a personal discussion, in which it is
saiil that Ainlay called Keisner a
quitter and Reisner seized the Nance
county man and attempted to throw
him over the lobby rail, but was pre
vented by the interference of others.
Representative Dorscy was the
only individual hurt in the melee.
I'lavitiR the part of the innocent by

railing. Dorsey was struck by one of
Ainlay's feet as they swung around
in the atmosphere and a slight
scratch made on bis hitherto good
looking prohosis.

against an amendment offered by Mr.

Reisner denied that he was bound
by any caucus action and after a
short dispute he said to Ainlay:
"You get back over there on your
side of the house."
"I don't have to go back there,"
was Ainlay's response.

New Method of "Feeding" the Skin
With a Rolling Massage Cream
Made From Sweet Milk
Whole sweet milk is s good wrinkle chaser,
an many women have come to learn. Further
more, it la considered to be unusually ef
fective in ma kin or a
rough, blotchy, "muddy"
skin smooth, clear and
exceedingly delightful to
look upon.
Only a few minutes
spent each evening, us
ing this new method of
beauty-culture, will pro
duce almost astonishing
results in a remarkably
short time. The best
and most effective way
to use the milk is in
the form of a rolling
masnaffe cream.
V Any woman can easily
prepare her own beauty
cream by dissolving
about two o u n o e a of
plain powdered bryol in
one-half pint of sweet, unskimmed milk.
This should then be heated to near the boil
ing point, and when cool will make a full
half pound of the very finest rolling massage
Laugh -wrinkles, end fine lines are easily
rubbed out, and even deep furrows gradually
disappear when this milk mattsage cream is
employed. While it is easy and inexpensive
to prepare, care should be taken to see that
the milk is perfectly sweet and unskimmed.
The powdered bryol should be purchased
from your druggist in an original, unbroken
two-ounce package. Advertisement.
