" Bryan Has' Statement.
'"'(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, March 25. (Specials
Should the special session of the leg
islature ratify the prohibition amend
ment to the ccnsttiution of the United
, States, it would have to be done all
over again al the next regular ses
sion, in the opinion of Governor Nev
ille, who has spent much time looking
over the constitution of other states
, in an effort to discover if other states
give authority to a special session. to
enact legislation not specified in the
The governor ha9 discovered that
btit a few states giie that freedom to

the first call has been made, while
another state gives its legislature au
thority upon a two-thirds vote of the
, members. s
What Constitution Says.
' The state cf Nebraska expresses it
self in its constitution) along about
the same fine as the most of the
states, section 8 of article 5 of the
"The governor may on extraqrdi
' nary occasions convene the lcgisla
' ture by proclamation, stating therein
the purpose for which they arc con
; vened and the; legislature shall enter
upon no business except that for
which thev were called together."
ThisV in the mind of the governor,
clearly, established the rights ot tne
legislature and that no legislation can
be enacted -but that. specified in the
' Mr! Bryan, in his address in Lin
coln, said that the legislature could
; take action on a ratification of 'the
prohibition amendment, , basing his
; claim on th. fact that some state at
t some time had elected a United
States senator at a special session,
' ',: when the election had not been speci
' fied in the call. What state he re-
ferred to is not known,
i The contention is made that Mr.
i Bryan is wrong for the reason that
I the, ratification of an amendment to
the national constitution and the elcc
' tien of a United States senato are
, , two distinct and separate matters, and
that the election of a senator to fill a
vacancy is provided for in the federal
I constitution and that when a vacancy
t o.cccurs, the governor of the state ap
; points until the next session of the
. legislature convenes and if that ses
J sibn happens to be a special, session
if is its dutv to elect someone to fill
i ttje vacancy in states where the Kg is-'
Uture elects1 the senator. , "'
: " ' Federal Consltutlon.
The constitution of the United
', States reads: " Article 1, Section 3:
"iVIf.vvacancie!" happen by resignation
, or otherwise, during the recess of the
legislature, any state, the executive
thereof may make temporary appoint
7 ments until the next meeting of the
legislature, . which shall then fill such
" vacancies. ; :,' "
Members of the legislature so far
who i have arrived appear to be in the
t ' air tin the proposition whether the
' ratification ot the amendment can be
' legally taken up. Many of those who
5 favor its ratification are fearful that
if an attempt is made to override the
governor's call it will bring on a fight
' - which will have the same effect as in
that of the last session tfiat real leg-
' islation twill have to suffer" because
of feelings existing between mem-
bers brought on by such a fight.
i Not After Squabble.
' -v One of the most prominent mem-
bers of the last session, James Auten
of Boone, said today he has come to
v Lincoln to do business and not to
' " squabble over differences of opinion.
If the members want to get busy and
, enact the legislation called for he will
stay and help, but if they are going
to go to scrapping, he will simply tell
: them what he thinks of their action,
,: pack is grip and go home, where he
...has much more important work than
talking.1 He -says talking won't get
V his wheat and oats sowed or plow his
land for corn, if it could he would
have done his talking into a phono
. graph anc left it to put in his crop.
f The only thing to be gained by
' ratifying the change in the consti
tution would be that as Mr. Bryan
h said, "Nebraska would thus be one of
.. the first states to recognize the pro
.'inhibition amendment ' by legislative
- action." This in the mind of many is
not of sufficient importance to cause
- he members who favor such action
. :o take a slap at Governor Neville,
when the next regular session can
.. lust as well 'take care of the matter.
' W. J. Bryan tonight issued" i
signed statement containing an argu

"major portion of the statement to

Boy's Death an Accident,
Not Suicide, Says Father
Amherst, Ne6., March 23. (Spe
cial.) H. T. McDaniel, father of the
boy reported a suicide March 15,
says: JLloya dia not mean to kui
himself. He only wanted to scare
us. for the shell he used was one
from which the shot had "been removed.
We think the gun must have slipped
in some way, bringing the muzzle
closer to his head than he had in
tended. It was the force of the blast
from the powder that killed him.
His mother had sent the other child
ren to scool in a buggy, and Lloyd
was to do the chores and walk across
the field. We are positive the act
was committed simply to scare us."
