Nebryska ORATORS DEVOTE TIME TO SPEECHES IN LOWER HOUSE Kesoiution sent to uesk in Spirit of Fun Brings Ava ; (anche; Tracewell Makes Patriotic Address. 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.

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.

THE BEE: TANNER BROUGHT 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 vote. 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, Hager, Lahners. McMullen, Mofiarity, $ DX.ELDWDCE I4V V 1 1 YUA V I V V '' "" '" : ....

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.

"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.
