SO BONUS GIVEN
TO SOLDIER BOYS
Democratic House Votes Down
Bill to Give Each Guards
NO OTHER RECOGNITION
(From Staff Correapondent.)
Lincoln, Marcli 23. (Special.)
The democratic house went on record
this afternoon in entire sympathy
with the song, "I Didn't Raise My
Boy To Be a Soldier," and voted not
only to refuse to release the boys
who went to the border from paying
a poll tax, but refused to recognize
them in any other way.
Hopkins, Shannon and one or two
other democrats made a strong fight
for recognition of the Guardsmen
' and when both the amendment and
u. kill killed HnnWinl said he
i thought it was about time to take
the flag down from over the house.
Peterson wanted the "insult" to the
flag stricken from the ' records, but
Richmond, who was presiding, in
formed the house that he believed
the remarks of his colleague from
Douglas should not be taken in that
light, but rather that they were in
tended as a joke and given in a
spirit of levity.
Cronin Flings Sarcasm.
"A fine, patriotic bunch, you are
gentlemen, I must say," shouted
Shannon called attention to the fact
that hundreds of the members of the
National Guard, who had left their
' civilian clothes in their lockers when
they went to the border, had returned
to find them ruined and moth eaten.
He thought the state ought at least
to make good to the boys in some
WiJreenwalt ridiculed the men of the
house who were willing to send their
. sons to the war, but made no pre
tense of offering to do anything them
"We are on the verge of war," he
asserted, "but I don't see anybody
here who is witling to die for the
flag. We lit here in this chamber
clothed in the robes of office and
look wise, but talk foolish. Let us
show that we appreciate what these
boys have done by voting them the
small amount proposed."
Others who talked for the bill weret
Heal, Bates, Hopkins, Miller, Dau,
Thomas, Keegan, Conley and Shaf
fer. Those who expressed themselves
at against it were: Flansburg, Trace
well, and one or two others. ,

Prince Suit Against
Shanks Is on Trial
Grand Island, Neb., March 23.

attorney, against the Southern Surety

upon Prince in September, last, by
Shanks, while the former was on a
business mission in that town, is be
ing heard in the district court here,

picked up on the streets unconscious.
