Members of House Hold
Heated Discussion on Meth
ods Employed to Figfjt Boot
legging Over Nebraska.
(By Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Feb. 10. Bootlegging in
N'ebraska is growing to an appalling
extent and in the eastern part of
the state, especially in Nemaha
rounty, it amounts to open violation
of the law.
This was the .statement made on
the floor of the house by Represea
lative Good of Nemaha, chairman of
the finance committee, in a debate
precipitated by Anderson of Hamil
ton, who asked that H. R. No. 205,
appropriating $25,000 for use of the
state booze agents as an emergency
fund, be reconsidered for a specific
amendment after it had been rec
ommended for passage by the com
mittee of the whole.
Anderson was asked to explain
his motion. He said that he had
been asleep at the switch when the
bill had been submitted to the com
mittee of the whole and had just
woke tip. He wanted the bill
amended so as to make the appro
priation $5,000 instead of $23,000
asked by the governor.
How Money Was Spent.
Snow and Good insisted at this
moment that the rul.s of the house
be enforced and that the bill in
question be up for third reading and
.that there could be no reconsidera
tion except for specific correction.
Despite this, discussion of the
bill was continued and Jacobson said
he was opposed to it or the reason
that with the $16,000 left on hand,
unexpended by the Neville regime,
and with the $25,000 added there
would be available for the use of
the governor and his booze agents
$42,000 to be expended at the rate
of. $14,000 per month, or $500 per
(lay lor the period ending March
31 of the present year.
Jajpobson also contended that Gus
Hycrs, at the head of the prohibi
tory enforcement machinery, was
not the proper man to expend the
money. "On January 1, it was
shown, he was short $2,091 to Lan
caster county for the term in which
he served as sheriff."
"Point of orderl Point of order!"
yelled several members of the house
at once.
Jeary Has Answer.
"Let him go," said Jeary of Lan
caster. "I want to answer him."
"Part of this money is to be used
for the paying of rewards by the
state agents," continued Jacobson,
after the interruption. "You all
know what happened when the head
of the penitentiary was murdered
some years ago. Gus Hyers went
"Point of order," yelled Rodman
of Kimball, and Jacobson was
choked off at this point.
Fults of Furnas county insisted
that the rules permitted the bill to
be reconsidered and he asked ihat
Chairman Good of the finance com
mittee explain the nature of the ap
propriation and the purposes for.
which the money was to be used.
"On November 1, 1918. there re
mained in the prohibitory enforce
ment fund $16,000. With this ad
ditional appropriation of $25,000,
which Governor McKelvie ask for
the purpose of enforcing -the pro
hibitory law between ' now and
March 31, there will be about $41,
000 which he can expend in that
period.- He wants to continue his
policy of running down the boot
leggers and putting them out of
business. Their business is increas
ing day by day. In my county and
in the eastern part of the State it

Just As Much iBooze. Iri the
State Now, As at the Time
Saloons Were Wide Open
Governor Reads Special
Legislature Advocating
Special Fund for Appointment of Efficient Booze
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Feb. 10. (Special.) In
a special message to the lower
house of the state legislature today,
Gov. S. R. McKelvie stated that
there was as much booze in the
state when he took office as there
was when the state had open sa
loons. He said that the illegal traf
fic in liquor has become thoroughly
established and booze runners are
now covering the state in a systema
tized and businesslike manner. He
charged that the heads of the illegal
traffic were making more 'money
than was made by legalized saloon
More Dangerous Than Saloon.
The bootleggers are more daneer-
ous than the open saloon, he said
and the commercialized illegal traf
fic in the small towns is demoraliz
ing the young men of small com
munities. He asserted that drinking
was encouraged for young men by
dealers in the contraband in order
to increase their business.
i he statement was issued when
opponents to the bill asking for an
additional $25,000 for. the enforce
ment of the prohibition amendment
became active. A fierce fight was
waged on the floor of the house
over the passage of the measure.
Ihe governor explained, in asking
for the added appropriation, that he
at any time and it now amounts to
open violation of the law.
Guard Every Bridge.
"We want to appropriate enough
money to enable the- governor to
1-lace a guard at every bridge and
on every puoiic nignway, to quad
ruple the force of state agents, if
necessary, to put a stop to this bust
ness. He must have all the money
we can give mm. vve must put a
stop to bootlegging.
Jeary. in defense of Hvers
charged on the floor with hot having
straightened his accounts with Lan
caster county, as sheriff, said:
A democratic county attorney
and clerk were elected in Lancaster
county and they "decided to audit the
books or all the republican office
holders. . They found that Hvers
had not accounted for over $2,000
worth ot tees, which he felt belong
ed to him under the law, and for
which he was, not called on the ac
count. The audit failed to make
public, however, the fact that he had
turned into the county treasury fees
of a nature that it was not neces
sary to report.
; Bill Still in Air. :
A ruling was demanded from the
chair by. Snow ,and the chair held
that the bill could be-' recommitted
for special correction, i
Reynolds of Douglas, moved' that
the house-amend the rules so that
"special correction," should be "spe
cific amendment." Sndw made a
substitute motion that the motion of
Reynolds be, submitted to the house
committee on rules for consideration
and this carried.
The governor's special appropria
tion bill to fight bootlegging for the
next tew rnonths is still up in the
air. . . , ; ;

Farmers' State bank, were the vic
Some $800 worth of silk in the bolt
was taken from the Morrison store
and $1,000 worth of the same class
of goods from the Golden Rule; $6
or $8 in the cash register at the
Kemper store is all that has been
missed. At the bank the burglars
unsuccessfully endeavored to enter
the vault through the breaking off of
the knob of the vault door and so
contented themselves with taking
$10 worth of revenue stamps, an
automatic pistol that belonged to a
bank employe, and two other pistols
that were the preporty of the home
guards. Entrance to all of the
places was effected through the
breaking in of the windows opening
on the alley. Bloodhounds were se
cured from Alliance, but the dogs
failed to take trail and there is so
for absolutely no clue to the robbers.
Hartington Man Addresses
Senate on Randall Bill
Lincoln, Feb. 10. (Special.)
Fred W. Barnhart of Hartington,
appearing before the senate commit
tee on education this afternoon in
support of Senator Randall's bill,
S. F. No. 33, prohibiting any teacher
in any public school from wearing
any insignia designating their mem
bership in any church or religious
sect, stirred up considerable interest.
Barnhart charged that the Catho
lics in Cedar county have been using
state money for schools, which,
Protestant children are not allowed
to attend. Barnhar't further claimed
that practically all instruction was
given in the German language.
He was asked where he received
his information on the subject and
said that he picked it tip by travcl
ing.over the county while engaged in
Red Cross work.
The committee took no action on
the bill.

McKelvie to Lower House.
Message to Lower House of

planned to control the traffic by
raving ?u capable and honest men
ptarol the places of entry into the
state. He stated that this plan was
impossilbe without the additional
appropriation of $25,000.
The governor explains that his
plan for blocking bootlegging at its
source is to employ a force of 40 to
l) honest, capable men to patrol
points of entry to the state, with the
$25,000 appropriation.
. In a recent statement. by the gov
ernor, ; he suggested a state con
stabulary of 60 men actively patrol
ing the state for bootleggers and
auto thieves, which would be a sub
stitute for the national guard, and
adequate, he said, to quell any civil
His statement follows:
The question has been raised regarding
the jieed for additional funda to enforce
prohibition, - and without .attempting to
define the stimulus back of thla campaign,
or referring specif icalljr t the origin of
such agitation, I am pleased to assume
the entire responsibility for. the recom
mendation to the finance committee that
125,000 additional money be appropriated
to be used for law enforcement relative
to prohibition before April 1.
' In the light ot the amount of money
that was used by the former administra
tion In connection with the enforcement
ot prohibition thla recommendation ap
pears exceptional, but in the matter of
law enforcement It Is an absolute necea
slir. H Is not my desire to reflect unfavor
ably upon the past administration, and I
am frank to say that I would have made
no auch references had K not been for
the agitation above referred to.
Sek Prevention. v
First, let 1t be understood, that the law
enforcement division under the present
administration la not a publicity depart
ment. I have repeatedly said to Chief
Agent Hyers that It la not our purpose
to obtain arrests, and convictions for pub
licity purposes alone nor to. anticipate 4he
things that will be done In this . depart
ment. 'After we have obtained convic
tions, It is then quite proper that the facta
should be given not only with emphasis
upon such activities, but with emphasis
upon the fact that we are seeking to pre
vent bootlegging by apprehending boot
leggers principally Instead of the small of
fenders principally. Of course, it la our
purpose to get All offenders but we are
opposed to the practice which contem
plates publicity for law . enforcement
throjigb confining the efforts of the de
partment principally to apprehending
small offenders. Attention haa been call
ed to the amount ot tildes that were ob
tained under the former, administration,
and, without desiring ,to"1nlnlmlze the Im
portance of that Item, it should at once
appear to anyone that fine for violations
of the law are In proportion to the amount
or booze there - Is In the state. If the
booze Is kept out of the atate quite
naturally there will be no fines, ftirther
more. It should be kept In mind that a
fine of S10O, which may be assessed
against the offender who imparts a qnart.
looks quite as Important In a ncvlpaper
headline as a fine of 1100 for 16fl ooarts.
Thus may It be understood how easy It Is
to camouflage law enforcement It the
mere amount of flnea Is to be used aa a
determining- factor.
.-. I Much Unuor Found. s
I.'tU not hesitate to say that In my
oplnhw there iwas, at the time, when I
took office, almost as much booze In Ne
braska as there was Vhen we had open
saloons. The Illegal traffic In It had be
come thoroughly established and .the run
ner -were coverings the state m a very
methodical, and businesslike manner, Cer
tain ones who. have .been most active In
organizing the work have mad more
money, out of . the traffic than wer ever
made by any legalized effort by saloon
keepers. It Is quite easy to understand
how this condition came about. Hereto
fore, law enforcement we attempted
through the employment of a very few
men . working under the .chief- agent. It
was. utterly impossible for them to patrol i
the "points of entry to the atate, even bad
there been the most sincere deslr to do
so, and it must be evident to anyone that
the way to prevent bootlegging Is to stop
It at the borders of the state. After the
booze haa come Into the etate and has been
distributed in small quantities among the i
people, It is then practically Impossible to
prohibit the sale or use of It.
- Dangerous Practice.
Bootleggleg is more dangerous than the
open saloon. Many communities in Ne
braska already appreciate thla fact. From
the number of cdmplainta I have received,
I am convinced that through Illegal traf
fic In liquor, some small communities In
Nebraska have been almost demoralized
Young men who formerly were not accus
tomed to the use of booze, were encour
aged to do so through clandestine ban
dllng ot It.
We propose to enforce prohibition by
prohibiting bootlegging and to do this, we
expect to stop the booze runners at tbe
borders of the state. Thla means that we
must have a force of no less than 40 or to
honest, capable men who will patrol the
points ot entry to the state. If we are
to maintain such a force, it will require
money to do It, and that la why I have
recommended the additional appropriation
of 125.000.

Local Coal Men Protest
Against Cancellation
of Reconsignment Use
Washington Bureau, Omaha Bee.
Washington, Feb. 10. Ne
braska coal dealers are up in arms
against the cancellation of the re
consignment privilege at the hands
of the fuel administration and in
sist that reconsignment must be re
stored to them, otherwise they will
be at the mercy of other sections
more highly favored. "Without th
reconsignment privilege a whole
saler could not own or control any
coal in transit from the mines. The
only time this coal would become
the property of the wholesaler
would be when .a shipment was re:
fused on account of quality or prep
aration, says the Updike Grain
company of Omaha in a letter to
Senator Hitchcock.
Further, fhey say, "the retail deal
ers of Nebraska have only limited
storage capacity and most of the
coal that they handle is purchased
through wholesale dealers, who have
numerous sources of supply in
many different coal fields.
The Carbon Coal and Supply com
pany join the Updike company in
urging the senator to get busy and
have the discrimination against Ne
Draska coal dealers removed. Jt is
stated that Fuel Administrator John
L. Kennedy has threatened to re
sign if the reconsignment privilege
is not granted the Nebraska deal
ers, as has been the practice until
recent date.
