BILL OPENS HOT
IVfeasure Providing for Selec
tion of Demonstrators by
Special Election Referred
Back to Committee.
By a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Jan. 31. Representative
Fries of Howard today spoke in
favor of hist bill. House Roll No. 99,
providing for the election of farm
agents or demonstrators.
His bill provides that a petition
consisting of 10 per cent of the elec
tors of a county, distributed among
two-thirds of the precincts, must be
presented 60 days before calling a
special election at which the matter
of the flection of a farm demon
strator or agent be put to a vote of
the people. He said considerable
opposition Uas developed to the
present law because farmers felt
something v.-as being forced on
them they did not want.
He said that he favored farm
demonstrators or agents, but that
th -j matter of their choice should be
left to the people in the interest of
Moves for Postponement.
Dalny-of Gage moved that the
bill be indefinitely postponed, for it
was a clever camouflage of a move
ment to kill entirely the opportunity
of having farm demonstrators or
county agents at all. He said there
never was a meritorious thing but
would find opposition, and a bill of

and destructive. He said Gage

Attempts of Omaha
Democrats to Block
By a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Jan. 31. Attfirhpts of
Omaha democrats to make it appear
that the Nebraska senate is balking
on the confirmation of A. E. Allyn of
Hastings, nominated by Gov. S. R.
McKelvie for a. place on the board
of control, were denied by members
of the upper branch today.
Asserting that there was no oppo
sition to the confirmation of Mr.
Allyn, same of the senators said
that the procedure followed in this
case is the same as has always been
adopted. Confirmation has always
been made a special order of busi
ness, and a committee appointed to
make a report to the upper branch
for the benefit of the other mem
bers who may not happen to be
personally acquainted with the ap
pointee. lhe confirmation of the board of
control appointment, which is one
of the most important plums at the
disposal of the new administration,
has , been made a special order of
business for next Thursday. The
senate committee named to confer
with Allyn includes Senator Johnson
of Adams county, Allyn's home, as
chairmen: Cooper of Douglas, Brad-
street of Hall, Cronin of Holt and
Harriss of Jefferson.
Union Pacific Stops
Action on Deductions
of Class in Shipments
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Jan. 31. The Union Pa
cific has dismissed its own action in
the joint appeal with the Rock Is
land and the M. & O. in the Ne
braska -supreme court from the or
der of the Nebraska Railway com
mission stopping arbitrary deduc
tions from claims for grain losses
While this action may indicate a
similar stand to be taken by the oth
er roads, it is not interpreted to
mean that the roads have given up
their fight in favor of the deductions.
It is considered possible that they
are relying on the federal railway
administration to look after their
cause, since the interstate commerce
commission approves of such deduc
tions, wihch has always been oermis
sible in interstate traffic.
Dr. Newell Resigns.
Lincoln, Jan. 31. (Special.) Dr.
H. A. Newell, since last June assist

for resigning that he expects to take

"But you see, they tell me that

Several press notices give glimpses
that Baron de Orgler is impressed
favorably with American girls, but
when accused of this he, with many
gestures and shrugs, remarked that
the girls were enthusiastic over his
title and that his ideal was not an
heiress but a blonde American girl.
Baron de Orgler expects to be in
Omaha for two weeks.
