NO SENATE JOURNAL
IN SIGHT THIS YEAR
Secretary Walrath Declares
Money All Used Up Faying:
Employes; Nothing for
(From Surf Correspondent.)
Lincoln, June 22. (Special.) The
jtite of Nebraska has many things
by which to remember the last legis
lature, but it looks now as if the
usual souvenir of the session, the pro
ceedines of the senate, will not be on
the desks of the members at the next
session nor will the people at large
ever have a chance to know what the
upper body really did.
Secretary Gene Walrath of the sen
ate has refused to have the proceed'
ing printed, because there are no
funds. Mr. Walrath was here few
day ago and lo several persons at
the state house said he did not intend
to have the proceedings printed. He
said I ieutenant Governor Howard
had inade a raid on the funds and
forced the payment of employes of
the senate over and above the consti
tutional requirement and there was
not enough money Jeft to pay for
printing the journal.
Looks Out for Walrath.
The senate before adjournment
voted $1,400 to the secretary to get
out the proceedings. According to
the records Mr. Walrath has already
drawn $900 of the amount and this
I.ivm S50O vet to be Daid.
Arrnrdins to the records in the
office of the state auditor only $400
remains of the total amount voted in
the appropriation bill for expenses of
the senate and claims more man
enough are out against this amount
to use it up besides the $500 due Sec
retary Walrath for preparation of the
proceedings ot tne senate.
The law allowed S3 a dav for pay
ment of help in most instances. This
was raised to S4 by tne senate, out
when the claims were made out they
were made for only $3 by the secre
tary, he claiming that $3 was the con
stitutional pay and the senate had
no right to allow any more, especially
when there were not sufficient funds
voted to pay it.
Howard Dips In.
Lieutenant Governor Howard came
to Lincoln personally to see that the
old soldiers affected got their money.
It was understood he was able to
fix things so they could draw the
full tmount voted, but it appears his
.action has depleted the treasury or
rather the appropriation, according to
Mr, Walrath, and he refuses to have
the proceedings printed with no
prospect of money forthcoming until
the next legislature meets and a de
ficiency claim is allowed.
According to Commissioner Web
ster of the state printing board proofs
of the pages already set up by the
firm having the contract for printing
the journal, were sent to Secretary
Walrath ten days ago, but have never
baen sent back.

Juneau, Alaska, June 22. Alaska
possesses practically untouched re
sources in crustacean or shell fish
products, according to Ernest P.
Walker, inspector of the fisheries bu
reau, now here in the interest of
the early development of all food
sources in the territory. He has re
cently been engaged in investigating

shrimp and other members of the
family existing in northern waters.
"This country will, unquestionably,
some day be a big producer of shell
fish," said he. "Special attention is
being paid to the development of scal
lops. We often find theiii in nets and
fishing gear, which indicates that they
abound, for in order to get scallops

"Proof of the great clam resources
is seen in results obtained from recent
development of the beds near the
mouth of the Copper river by packers
located at Cordova. A recent ship-

ment of canned clams ever received
at the Puget sound port."

(From a Starr correaponaent.)
Lincoln, June 22. (Special.) Mer

the continuation of what they call the

Norfolk so early that people along
the line are enabled to make connec

Omaha and go there to do their trad

cattle in Furnas and Madison counties,

Stop Corn Pain In Two Minutes
By the Clock Easy and Simple
The magic of Ice-Mint dou it. Soreneaa stops quickly and gradually
the corn loosens and comes out. Try it.
Your faat will feel cool and fine.
Thanks to a new discovery made
from a Japanese product, your
foot troubles can be quickly ended.
Ice-Mint, as this new prepara
tion is called, is said to shrivel up
hard corns, soft corns or corns be
tween the toes so that they can be
lifted out easily with the fingers.
Rub a little on any tender corn
or callous. Instantly the soreness
is relieved and shortly the corn or
callous will loosen so that it can
be lifted right out with the fin
gen root and all, No foolishness.

Persistent Advertising is the Road
Ice-Mint is a clean, creamy,
snow white, nonpoisonous sub
stance and does not inflame or
even irritate the most tender skin.
There is no pain, smarting, or even
a bit of soreness while applying
Ice-Mint or afterwards. It acts so
gently, so magically that yon will
never want to run the risk of bbod

You'll like it immensely.
