Lancaster Lawmaker Says
Four-Footed Hog Has Been
: Froip a Staff Corraapondent)
Lincoln, March 30. (Special.)
.During the last week I have been
studying hogs and men, comparing
their, babiti, code of ethics and con'
duct under fire and I find that the hog
has been somewhat maligned and the
epithets-which have been hurled" at
him in some measure have been mis
directed. Believing that the four-foot
ed hog is gaining on his adversary and
should be encouraged. I vote yes."
' This is the way Senator Oberlies of
Lancaster explained his vote today
wnen the ssu.uuu appropriation tor a
hog -barn at the state fair gruunds
came up tor hnai passage. I he senator
had tried to get the appropriation cut
down to. $50,000, which was going
some for a Lancaster county senator,
and with the marks of the steam roller
which flattened out himself and more
than a dozen other senators when
they went up against the wet machine
on the dry bill yesterday, it is figured
that his explanation might have had
a personal application.
7 However, the hog barn bill was
passed, with Hammond, Strehlow
and Tanner not voting.
.. The senate refused to take an ad
journment over Saturday, on motion
of Albert. ; .
. Other bills which went through on
final passage were:

Caucus Also Renominates All
Officers of Last House and
Ways and Means Body.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, March 30. (Special
Telegram.) At the democratic cau
cus today it was decided to vote for
speaker, clerk of the house, sergeant
at-arms and doorkeeper en bloc, pre
senting the names of these four om
eials who held positions in the Sixty-
fourth congress; Speaker, Champ
Clark; clerk, South Trimble; ser-
geant-at-arms, Kobcrt B. Cordon;
doorkeeper, Joseph J. Sinnott.
The question of committee chair
manships was left open, except that it
was decided by the caucus to fill the
vacancies on the ways and means
committee by a resolution similar to
the one which will be offered on Mon
day ss to the officers, present mem'
bers being re-elected to that body.

AMERICAN AIRMEN RETURN
Blank Date, March 30. The fact
that the Cunard liner Orduna was
stopped off the Irish coast by a Brit

riedly ordered into the nearest port
while North Channel was cleared of a
great flock of mines suddenly discov

officers as the reason the vesSi.'Vas

its American destination today.
Upon arrival in the Irish port of
retuge its officers said they tound
twenty-seven other ships had already
escaped the mines peril by putting in
there, including one American ship.
Two other vessels had fallen victim
of the mines, they learned, and had
gone down. ,
The mine sweepers worked two
days clearing the sea of the menace,
destroying more than 100 mines. Then
all the ships were ordered out at once,
making their way through a lane 01

and patrol boats until they reached
On board the Orduna were five

Sinking of Glynymel Confirmed.
Sinking of British freight steamer
Glynymel, reported by Berlin March

London from a French port, the sail
ors said, and was torpedoed without
warning on March 9. The chief mate
of the steamer was killed and one of
the assistant engineers injured. The
Glynymel was a -vessel of 1,342 tons

Men Who Called r
General Strike in
Washington, March 30. A revolu
tionary movement',, which resulted in
the calling of a general strike, was
directly responsible for the suspen
sion yesterday by Spain of constitu
tional guarantees, according to an
official dispatch received today by
Ambassador Riano from Madrid.
The government having arrested
the signers of the strike manifesto, is
said in the dispatch now to be relying
upon the "common sense" of work
men and the effectiveness of the
measure taken to preserve public or
der. The country was quiet at the
time the dispatch was sent.
The text follows:
"A manifesto having been pub
lished by the representatives of the
workmen's union proclaiming s gen
eral strike without fixing a date and
clearly with revolutionary purpose,
and with the idea of disturbing public
order, which was very marked last
night at a public meeting, the govern
ment has suspended constitutional
guarantees, after having arrested by
judicial order the signers of the man
ifesto. Absolute tranquility reigns
over Spain and the government trusts
to common sense of the workmen and
the effectiveness of the measures
adopted to preserve public order."
