TIME TO SPEECHES
IN LOWER HOUSE
Kesoiution sent to uesk in
Spirit of Fun Brings Ava
; (anche; Tracewell Makes
From a Staff Correrpondent.) , ' .
JJntolnv, April 5. Special.) Ai
little Jojte resolution sent to the clerk
of 'the house today in a spirit of fun
was the innocent .-cause" for turning
loose of several 'brands'' of J oratory
lasting an hour'and a' half., The house
did not have much to do anyway and
it gave an opportunity for' the ex
change of idaes.ancj finally, developed
into a patriotic, discussion in which
the nonpartisan league was the: sub
ject. v- ' ' . .. .:',
The resolution : was sent tip after
an invitation had been received by the
hoyse froiu J3r. George ; E.( Condra
of the Nebraska .conservation - de
partment inviting ' nemhers to the
Commercial club this evening to, see
motion pictures of interesting scenes.
The joke 'resolution recited that
Whereas Dr.; Condra had .invited
the house to. view motion picture of
the legislature, the invitation-be ac
cepted providing he would, showa
picture of. Taylor and Fries escaping
irom trie uame ot YVanoo,;
Taylor Defends League.
After ' Lampert of Wahoo and
: Lamar of the same town had spoken
on the resolution in which they
called attention" to the recent trouble
in their city when representatives of
the nonpartisan league had been
denied the right to speak, Represen
tative Taylor of Custer replied In a
defense of the leajrue and Its loyalty.
He said ihat just, because certain
members of the league had been
charged with uttering disloyal ut
terances it was no sign the whole
organization was disloyal.
He deplored the seeming right of
the state Council of Defense to pro
nounce judgment upon any man as
to his loyalty. , He deplored the fact
that in the name of patriotism so
many things were being done which
he believed unjust to men who were
just as patriotic as any in the legis
lature and he believed a great mis
take was' being made ' when ' men
charged the nonpartisan league with
being a disloyal organization.
Tracewell's Fine Talk.
Tatriotic speeches were made by
Neff, McAllister, Trumble and other's.
Tracewell of Cherry, repeatedly
brought the house into applause in a
five minute address. Mr. Tracewell
is probably one - of the few real
orators fa the house. Whenever he
speaks, every member listens.
"It is a good time for" everyone to
be an American," said Mr. (Tracewell.
"Only two propositions are involved
in. .the present crisis, Americanism
and Prussian ism. v Both cannot live
at the same time fn free America.
"Which one are you going to call
your own?. There . is no half way
place, no dividing line, no camping
place between the two. We must go
back to the old motto United we
stand divided we fall.' . . . .. ..
"I have given of my means to the
very besl of my ability. If this war
continues two more- years I will
probably be a financial wreck, but I
nave a boy in the trepches in France,
and if , I can only live long' enough
to hear that old Liberty bell once
again proclaim peace on earth I care
not what my sacrifice, just so long
as Old Glory shall once more waive
unsullied over the land of the free
and the home of the brave-r-our own
loved Amerfca.,'; v ,;: ! - , ,
Flag tb Broken fow.
On a 'resolution'', signed . by shout
two dozen members of-the house the
flag which hangs back of the speaker
was given .into the keeping ot Rep
resentative George W. Greenwalt as
a present to. Washburn Post No. 96
of the Grand Army of the Republic
at his home city of Broken -Bow.
This' post is the largest in the
Nebraska department and Mr. Green
Walt received the flag in a powerful
patriotic address in which he paid a
tribute tc the men who with his own
father had fought the bloody battles
of the civil war side by side.
A voteof thanks was given Assis
tant Clerk Horace M. Davis who had
used his vacation as postmaster at
Ord, to come to the legislature and
assist in : the work.
Mr. Davis responded, thanking the
members for the expression given and
said that having been fourth time
assistant clerk of the house and once
in the senate, he did not believe he
ever could stand it to miss a session
and the oportunity of meeting those
of his legislative acquaintance. He

TO SENATE OUT OF
SICK BED TO VOTE
Douglas Member, III After
Three Operations Forced to
Come to State House to
Pass Salary Bill.
(From Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, April 5. (Special.) Sena
torial courtesy and senatorial good
fellowship were sadly forgotten today
when members of the senate voting
no on the salaries and mileage bill
compelled Senator "Doc" Tanner of
Douglas county, who was ill in bed at
his hotel, having undergone three
operations in the last 15 days, to get
out of bed and come to the senate
chamber under a call of the house.
Only one vote was needed to pass
the bill, which was nothing more than
an effort to have the constitutionality
of the matter of paying salaries put
up to the supreme court so that the
controversy could be settled for good.
Feebly Casts Vote.
But IS of Tanner's, colleagues,
knowing that the bill would pass any
way, if he came, refused to change
their votes and thus compelled the
senator to painfully come to the sen
ate, even at the risk of a collapse, and
He came, escorted in a taxi by four
men and feebly made his way to his
chair. His vote for the bill was given
so emphatically that it was evident
that he felt deeply "man's inhumanity
to man." After voting he was com
pelled to return to his bed.
The bill up for consideration was
one to pay mileage of the members,
amounting to $3,1 10.20. This bill car
ried the emergency clause and it was
necessary to have a call of the house
to get the required two members, Beal
and Tanner being absent.
Bcal was found.
,Kohl Changes Vote.
In order that the bill might be put
up to the courts immediately, Kohl
changed from no to yes on the under
standing that if the courts decided in
favor of the bill that the money com
ing to him should go to the Red
Cross. Adams, Albert and Oberlies
changed their votes to yes, believing
the matter should go to the courts
if the bill passed, and as it would
probably get enough, the emergency
clause should' be attached.
The bill went through by a vote of
22, to 9, those voting no beingTIaase,

How They Voted.
When it came to the salaries bill,
which called for an appropriation of
$12,800, the vote stood 16 to 15, one
less than the required majority. Kohl
and Adams, who had changed on the
mileage bill, voted yes on the salaries
bill, Kohl giving the same explanation
as on the other bill. With one vote
lacking Tanner was sent for and when
he voted the required constitutional
majority was secured. It will still be

Fairbury Candidate Gives
First Talk of Campaign
Fairmont, Neb., April 5. (Spe
cial.) C. H. Denney republican
candidate for congress fourth dis
trict, in his speech delivered tonight,
made a forceful plea in behalf of the
oncoming Liberty loan drive. His
speech in part follows: "It is not a
question any more whether we
believe that the war is right or
proper between the United States
and Germany, it is a question of our
lives, our property, our freedom.
"It is not now a question of
diplomacy; it is not now a question
whether a man is for or against the
war. The time has now come that
unless a man or woman is whole
souledly in favor of doing everything
that is possible to win this war, un
less he or she is willing to do his or
her duty, then, he or she is a traitor.
' "If you should borrow $100 for one
year and buy a liberty bond with it
all it would cost you would be the
diflerence in 4A per cent and 6 or 7
per cent, or whatever your bank
would loan it to you at. If it is 6
per cent it costs you $1.75 to loan
your government $100, $17.50 to loan
your government $1,000.
