house of the legislature, in com

house roll No. 299, the first of the
series of good roads bills, passed

The secretary of state, through
Representative Sturtevant of Cherry
county proposed the amendment in
opposition to the provision of the
bill which decreed that the state
board of irrigation, highways and
drainage should be custodian of the
McLaughlin of Hall county, father
of the bill, showed that by making
the irrigation and highway board
custodian of the fund a large sum
could be saved the highway fund
that is now debected to the general
fund. He said that field men in the
employ of the highway department
could be used for this work during
bad weather and the winter months
and it was the only logical place
the money should go and be ac
counted for. He estimated that the
office cost would be decreased to
$5,000 per annum where it now in
volves an annual expenditure of

This was the only hitch that oc
curred in the consideration of the.
bill. All .of the proposed amend
ments were adopted as follows: No

legal unless certified to; motor
cycles will pay a license of $5 per
year, all other vehicles $10 per year,
except cars weighing in excess of
2,000 pounds when there shall be an
additional license of 50 cents per 100

the carrying of passengers in excess
of 7 per car, and trucks shall be
taxed at capacity weight.
Twenty-five per cent of all regis

An attempt was made by Rod
man of Kimball to have the age
limit of boys permitted to drive
motor vehicles .reduced from 16
years to 12. He explained that in

shortage of help made it imperative
that the younger boys be impressed

Nebraska Not Ready to
Quit the Primary System
Lincoln, March 10. According to
the temper of the house of represen
tatives of the legislature it is not
yet time to depart from the primary
system of making nominations and
return to the old time convention
In debate ' on the Hardin-Byrum
bill it was admitted t'..a the pri
mary system of nominating candi
dates for public office had its faults,
but despite this, the members of the
house love it still.
The amended bill up for final
' passage, received only 37 votes with
36 against it. In order to pass the
bill a vote of 51 members would
have to be registered for it.
I There is still a likelihood that the
' primary law may be amended and
this may be done in the senate
where a bill forbidding candidates
to do newspaper advertising, and
providing for state wide registration
of voters will come up tomorrow.

BILL TO STOP
Effort of Members From
Smaller Counties to Alter
Slightly Succeeds and .
It Is Recommended.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, March 10. Despite the
efforts of Representatives Osterman
and Jacobson, democratic leaders,
to defeat the bill in committee of
the whole of the house today,
House Roll 260, Foster's anti-nepotism
bill, was ordered for engross
ment and third reading by a de
Osterman and Jacombson both
contended that the bill was purely
a Douglas county measure and that
there was np demand for it out in
the state, and that its passage
would work a hardship in some of
the smaller counties and would
work against efficiency.
Foster denied that the bill was a
Douglas county measure and de
clared that it was a progressive
piece of legislation evolved by the
opportunities of the republican par
ty to make good where the demo
crats had failed, and that it was the
work of the committee on privi
leges and elections made up of men
from all over the state.
Carroll sought to kill the bill by
indefinite postponment, but his mo
tion lost, 23 for and 41 against.
The bill as it came from the com
mittee prohibited any state, county
or municipal officer from appointing
any relative tovoffice where the sal
ary of such office was over $600 per
annum. Osterman tried to amend
this by increasing the exemption to
$1,000, but this was defeated. The
compromise amendment of Wilman
of York that the exemption be made
on offices drawing less than $800 per
annum carried almost unanimously.
