    THE BEE: OMAHA, Friday, akkil. o,
Adopts Numerous Amendments
to Busbee-Adams Measure
on State Deposits.
Frora a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, April 5. (Special.) The
house today got into another of its
celebrated arguments in the commit
tee of the whole, the bill under con
sideration being Senate File 79, an
other of the Bush'ee-Adams bills, cov
ering dispostition of state funds.
The bill provided that state funds
deposited in banks should be let to
the. highest bidder.
The first thing done was the
adoption of an amendment proposed
by Murtey, under which every bank
receiving state funds must file a de
pository mond with the state treas
urer, to be approved by the state
banking board. At present, national
banks give such dons, but state banks
do not. owing to the fact that all their
deposits are protected by the guar
anty fund.
An amendment offered by Mr.
Swanson, limiting an "inactive" de
posit by the slate in any bank to
20 per cent of its capital, and an
"active" deposit, on which checks
may be drawn, for current purposes,
to 50 per cent, was adopted. Then
came one by Mr. Leidigh, putting a
maximum limit of 5 per cent on the
imprest to be paid to the state. This
was intended to prevent national
banks getting the bulk of state funds
by offering to pay a trifle over 5 per
cent, which is the limit allowed by
the' Nebraska banking laws for the
state banks to pay on deposits. It
was also adopted. Deposits are to
be made on competitive basis.
In this form the bill was advanced
o third' reading. The alterations do
not altogether please its chief sup
porters, who are western Nebraska
members. The purpose of the bill, as
commonly understood, was to give
western and northern banks, which
are willing to pay S per cent inter
est, a chance to feet more state funds
than they do now.
Ko bank,, under the terms of the
bill as amended, can have more than
$100,000 of state funds on deposit, and
in order to have that amout it must
have $300,000 capital. A bank with
' $100,000 capital is limited to $20,000 of
state money on deposit; and one with
$25,000 caiptal cannot have in excess
of $5,000 of state funds at one time.
At the present time, the interest
rate collected by the state on its funds
deposited in banks is 3 per cent, ex
cept in a few instances, where money
is left on time deposit at a higher

House Member Says Session
Laughing Stock of State
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, April 5. (Special.) "This
legislature has been the laughing
stock of the whole state and it is time
we began cutting out the monkey
business and made up our minds
where we are going to head in," were
the remarks of Mr. Greenwalt, Custer
county member, when a motion was
made in the house today to kill all
bills remaining in the hands of the
sifting committee and the standing
committees when adjournment is
taken Saturday.
Mr. Ollis joined with Mr. Green
wait in opposition to the motion, say
ing that the house should proceed
with caution "We have a large num
ber of house bills still in standing
committees of the senate and that
body would be sure to retaliate if we
should" make a wholesale killing of
their bills over here."
"It's a shame and a disgrace the
way we have been carrying on," re
marked Mr. Tracewell.
After the motion had passed, Mr.
Thomas served notice that he would
call down all members who persisted
in talking.
Workman's Compensation
Bill Made Special order
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, April 5. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator Walter R. Hager of
Adams has "something" on House
Roll, No. 525, the new workmen's
compensation bill, which he is con
vinced will kill the measure in a hurry
if it were known, he says. This is
the bill endorsed by the Nebraska
Manuafcturcrs' association and by
labor leaders of the state.
Senator Hager, in the course of
one of his talks, said the bill had no
finger and toe schedule and that it
did the wrong thinb in compelling
full payment when the injury oc
curred. Senator Beal, the introducer,
pointed to the schedule. Hager would
not argue his point.
"If this comes to a head I'll bring
out the viciousness of this act," de
clared Senator Hager threateningly.
Senator Hager moved the measure
for indefinite postponement. Senator
McMullen moved as a substitute that
it be made a special order of busi
ness at 10:30 Friday morning. The
substitute carried.
