Upper House of Legislature on
Record in Favor of Five-Million-Dollar
ture at Lincoln.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Feb. 14. The Nebraska
state senate this afternoon rejected
repeated attempts to amend the pro
visions of House Roll No. 3, the
Tracewell-Mears bill, providing for
a new $5,000,000 capitol, After
voting down several amendments,
the original house bill was ad
vanced for final passage.
From the sentiment shown in the
senate this afternoon it appears that
the upper branch is anxious to have
the capitol question out of the way
immediately and at the same time
make immediate provision for a
capitol to provide work for return
Present Building Disgrace.
Senator Houston of Burt county
led the fight against any amend
ments in the house bill. "This capi
tol is a disgrace," Houston said,
"and I for one want to see imme
diate steps to provide a new one."
Senator Bradstreet of Grand Is
land submitted the first amendment,
providing that the old building
should not be torn down until the
new one is completed. It was de
feated, 24 to 9. Bradstreet said it
would cost $2,000,000 to provide of
fices during the construction of the
Oppose Cut in Levy.
Cronin then offered an amendment
to cut the-lev.y-irom-4.5 mill -to- .7$
of a mill. He said the people of the
stat were not wanting a capitol.
His amendment lost 25 to 5. Senator
Reed wanted to extend the time a
year before letting contracts, but
his amendment dropped by the road
side, 23 to 7.
Senator Taylor, who In previous
sessions fought the capitol bill, then
submitted an amendment that none
of its provisions should be final un
til submitted to a vote of the peo
ple. This lost, 22 to 11.
Hoagland proposed an amendment
for an appropriation of $50,000 so
the commission could make plans for
the new capitol and submit them
to the legislature at the next session
for approval of the people.' It. lost
26 to 6.
Greeted With Cheers.
The bill was then ordered en
grossed and advanced to third read
ing. When news of the action of the
senate reached the house finance
committee, which was in session, it
decided on a holiday, called the
meet'ng off, and went over to the
upper branch to voice its apprecia
tion with cheers.
Then senate adjourned until 2
o'clock Monday afternoon.
