House Members Talk Over
Measure to Reimburse
, Liquidating Banks.
HALL'S MEASURE CHANGED
(From a Staff Correapondent.)
' Lincoln, March , 30. (Special.)
Whether the state should return a
bank's guaranty fund assessments to
it when it goes -out of business, or
should retain a part or all of the
money for the protection, of depositors
in the banks which continue to op
erate, was the subject of an animated
discussion on the floor of the house
today. . . .. . 1
More than an hour's time was con
sumed in discussing various proposals,
but none of them had been voted on
when' the committee of the whole
arose at noon and the house took its
Hall's BiU Clipped.
State Treasurer George Hall had a
bill, bearing the number of H. R. 614,
providing that all moneys collected by
state departments, institutions and
other agencies should be receipted for
in triplicate, and that one copy of each
receipt should be filed with the treas
urer. This part of the measure en
countered no objection, but other fea
On motion by Mr. Peterson, a sen
tence authorizing the state treasurer
to supervise the collection of all funds
Lby every department, institution and
bureau, was stricken out. it was
claimed that this provisions would
have given Treasurer Hall authority
to appoint someone in every state of
fice as his own deputy and thus dictate
how moneys taken in should be
handled. Other state officers were
much opposed to it;
Another amendment added to the
bill gives 'the auditor and treasurer
jointly the right to specify what the
form of receipts shall be, instead of
leaving it to the treasurer alone.
Sale of Historical Tract.
The bill authorizing the sale of the
half block of ground, with buildings,
just east of the state capitol square,
which is owned by the State Historical
society, and the use of the proceeds
in helping to pay the. cost of a com
bined historical society and library
building on the state university
campus, was partly considered. The
plan is to house half a dozen libraries
in this building, including those of
the hostorical society, the university,
the library commission and all others
under the control or semi-control of
the state, except the law and reference
library at the capjtol, which is to re
Mr. Reisner . thought the state
should keep' the ground east of the
capitol square, as a basement has
already been installed there for a
projected building which would house
the supreme court. To' this, Mr.
Peterson responded that the state
does not have title to the property.
"Then the state thoulc condemn
and take it over," Reisner said.
The bill was finally laid over to be
taken up at some future sitting.
