Demos Almost Solid Against
Request Made by the House
for Improvement.
(From a Staff Corrupon4at.)
Lincoln, March 23. (Special.)
The present unbusinesslike and de
plorable methods used by the postal
department of the United States,
which are' rapidly disorganizing the
mail conditions of the country, are
perfectly satisfactory to the demo
crats of the Nebraska senate, judg
ing by the action of the senate to
day when it tabled by a strict party
vote of 23 to 10 a resolution passed
by the house calling upon President
Wilson to do something to keep the
system from deteriorating.
The resolution passed by the house
met with little or no opposition. The
members in that end of the legisla
ture forgot all about politics and in
an effort to stop what appears to be
utter demoralization of the mail sys
tem of Nebraska sent to the presi
dent a resolution which would give
him an idea what his postmaster gen
eral is doing.
But the senate could see nothing
but the political end. It would not
do for a democratic senate to crit
icize a democratic department of the
national government, even if it was
plain that this department was get
ting itself into a hole just about as
rapidly as is possible.
Senator Beal in opposition to the
resolution offered the excuse that the
president had enough trouble on his
hands without bothering him with
little things like this.
This brought out the retort from
Senator Bushee, republican fl.oor
leader, that he "admired the nerve of
a man who roasts another for tak
ing up time on a resolution after he
had killed a half day in the senate
on one of his own no more import
ant. He reterred to the fight that
Beal put up early in the week for
his government ownership of rail
roads. On the motion to table, Albert,
democrat, voted with the republicans,
while Spirk, republican, voted with
the democrats.

cial Telegram.) Mrs. William Ham
mond of Nebraska City, widow of
the young man who was killed two
miles northeast of here October 2.
1914, was given a judgment of $3,500

buggy, were struck and instantly
killed by the Jersey passenger train.
Matt Gering of Plattsmouth ap
peared as head counsel for Mrs.

damages. The company 'alleged that
Engineer McLean sounded the whis
tle and that the young -men did not
observe the proper precaution in ap
proaching the road crossing.
Counsel for the prosecution main
tained the company had maintained a
dangerous crossing thirty years and
that it was negligent in allowing a
dense thicket of weeds to obstruct
the view of bassers by.

Employs Paid Secretary
Gering, Neb., March 23. (Special.)
The Community club of Gering
has employed N. R. Reasoner of
Hastings as its secretary to devote
his entire time to the civic work. It
is believed that this city is the only
one of its population in the state
which has a paid secretary on the job
devoting his full time to community

conditions of progress fully warrant
the expenditure. A budget has been
prepared sufficient to finance the
needs for the coming year.
