LOOK FOR LONG
Determination of Bryan to
Force Prohibition Issue Be
fore Lawmakers Looked on
as Start of Big Fight.
I Horn a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, March 21 .(Special.)
Some persons predict that the coming
extra session of the legislature will
be in session for at least four weeks.
Failure of Governor Neville to in
corporate in his call a ratification of
nation-wide prohibition and the Veiled
j attack upon the executive by Mr.
Bryan in his speech Tuesday night
with the passage of resolutions at that
meeting and the appointment of a
committee to watch the legislature
and see that action is taken on the
amendment is held as evidence that
a scrap is coining over prohibition
which may have its effect upon legis
lation for which the session was
Did Not Want Fight.
It is understood the reason the gov
ernor 'did not incorporate the prohi
bition matter in his call was because
he did not want to see the legislature
get into a fight when other important
matters were to be taken up which
he thought should be considered with
out factional strife. It is said that the
executive has not forgotten the bitter
fight of the last session, when many
good pieces of legislation were either
hampered or killed because of the wet
and dry fight and 'that he would rather
the matter be seetled later after the
people at the election had practically
ettlcd it themselves.
'J he attempt of Mr. Bryan to force
the issue, coming all the way from the
south to inject the subject into the
session, is not seting well on the po
litical stomachs of - many of tMe
friends of Governor Neville. They
appear to believe if Mr. Bryan has no
other interest in Nebraska, but to
come here for a day or two once a
year and force upon the democratic
siate administration an issue which
'ihe administration has so far han
dled with a great deal of credit to
itclf, th'at he might better stay away.
Governor Neville will not? discuss
the situation. It has been known for
some time, the governor has put m
inich thought over the wisdom of
njectiiig the wet and dry fight into
he suecial session, and as nothing
;ould be gained by early action and a
whole lot might be lost by doing
iv hat the coming regular session
might do just as well, he has been
loath to take any chances. It is said
I hat he had hoped to have the legis
lators meet, consider the legislation
in the call and adjourn, at least in
10 days, but all hopes now of a short
session appear to have gone glim
mering. Depend on Howard. '
k It is said that the" Bryans are de
T ending upon Lieutenant Governor
i Toward, as presiding officer of tfre-
senate to be the Czar Ree'd of the
session. He will be expected to force
the issue and force it hard. They arc
expecting that the lieutenant gover
nor will not again be compelled to say
that "the" senate has crucified the
democratic party on a beer keg," as
V lie did the last session. As the fight
over the matter will be in the senate,
if there is a fight, Mr. Howard will
be expected to calm the turbulant
political waters by persuasive ability
, or calm them otherwise, even if ht
has to use the mailed fist or the
Republicans are calling attention to
the apparent effort of Mr. Bryan to
give all credit for prohibition legis
lation to the democrates, but the
history of the big fight in the
Nebraska senate at the last session
disclose that eight of the ten re
publican senators -were for the pro
hibition bill in the fight on the am-
L Jments and that 17 of the 23 derrfo
crates were opposed to it. Of the dry
votes of the last session one will be
missing. Senator Douthett, having
resigned. The wets will have their
full strength, unless some of them
have"seen the error of their ways,"
as Mr. Bryan would put it.

TO MARKET WHEAT
Council s of Defen3-j Says
Patriotic Reasons Should
Prompt Every One to Take
Cereal to Market.
(Frort a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, March 21. (Special.)
The State Council of Defense for sev
eral weeks past has been making vig
orous inquiry as to stocksof milling
wheat held by the farmers of the
State and urging that it should be
marketed a; soon as possible so that
the government can be assisted by
a contribution representing Nebras
ka's maximum ability of wheat sup
plies. During this inquiry a number of
cases, which show a flagrant disre
gard of patriotic duty, have been
found. Willful withholding of large
quantities of wheat from the market,
which is spoiling in the bins where
it is stortd, have been discovered.
Such a gross lack of appreciation of
the duties of citizenship cannot and
will not b tolerated by the govern
ment. The state council is assist
ing in bringing those offenders to ac
count before the United States courts
to answer for their behavior.
Patriotic farmers of the state who
have wheat on hand are earnestly
urged to market it during the next
few weeks so that the government
can be given all the support possi
ble in providing the necessary food
supplies so badly needed. Every
bushel of wheat on hand that can be
spared, should and must be placed
at the disposal o the government as
soon as possible.

: "There's a Reason''
Sends to All Exemption Boaords
Statement of Meaning of Bill
for Relief of Fighting
(Prom a Staff Oorrspdondcr.t.
Lincoln, March 21. (Special.)
Governor .'evillesent out today tu
all local exemption boards an expla1
nation of the bill enacted by congress
giving relief to soldiers and sailors
serving in the army or navy of the
United States. Ttie matter covers
liability of men in the service to meet
obligations ."nd is as follows: V
"A soldier or sailor may owe
money on a note. Or he may have
bought or leased land or tools or fur
niture on which an installment is yet
due.; Or he may have mortgaged his
home, and be liable to foreclosure
for nonpayment. Or he may have
started a homestead or mining claim
and be unahie to continue the neces
sary occupation in the required period
of time. Or he may have carried life
insurance for several years and now
be unable to keep up the premium
payments. Or he may have a money
claim against someone and during his
absence the lapse of time may raise
a legal bar r.painst suing for it when
he returns. Or he may be sued on
some claim in his absence and may
be unable to defend the suit effec
tively while absent.
"In these and other ways he may
suffer undue hardship. The object of
this act is to give relief from such
, How to Proceed.
"The provisions of the act are too
numerous to set forth accurately here.
Enough to point out that its main
principle is as follows:
"A) Let someone, on behalf of the
soldier or saiior, notify the court that
the party concerned is a soldier or
sailor. Then the court will make
prompt inquiries into the merits ot
the case; if the case merits it, the
court has power to stay the other
party from further proceedings, or to
give other remedy that may be ap
propriate. The court may also appoint
an attorney to represent the soldier
or sailor in the lawsuit.
"(2) If a iawsuit has been begun
already in some court against the
soldier or sailor, go to that samec
court and give the notice, above men
tioned. If no lawsuit has yet been
begun, but some landlord or other
person is preparing to sell out or to
take possession of property in which
ithe soldier or sailor is interested, go
to the court :n whose iurisdiction the
property is,! notify the court as above,
and ask the court to summon the
other party. All such persons are for
bidden by law to take property in
that way without first applying to
court for an crder; but some persons
may attempt to take possession with
out doing so, in ignorance of the new
Was Risk Service.
"(3) If the soldier or sailor had an
insurance policy or a fraternal bene
fit membership, before September 1,
1917, and fe-rs that he may not be
able to keep up his payments, he
should write to the war risk insurance
bureau at Washington and ask them
for a form of application (or ask his
post adjutant at the camp.) The gov
ernment, on certain conditions, will
guarantee the payment of the prem
iums, so that the policy or member
ship will not be forfeited during the
soldier's or sailor's absence; hce will
then have a year after his return in
which to pay up and save his policy
or membership. This relief does not
apply to all policies or memberships,
and details cannot be given here; but
on filling out the application and
sending it to the war risk insurance
bureau it wil! be duly taken care of,
if it is the hind of insurance that is
protected by this act."
