CODE BILL BIG
Lines From Kipling 1 Head
Annual Statement on
' Activities of His
Lincoln. Neb., Jan. 3. Governor
MdKelvie has submitted a report of
the activities of the state during
1919, included in which he states
that the code bill has saved the state
the sum of $50,000. These lines
from Kipling head the report. ,
"If you can, keep your hes4 while all
"Are losing theirs and blamlny- It en you."
- Concerning appointments the re
port states: - '
"The success of an executive de
pends upon the character of those
chosen to aid in carrying out his
policies. This is as true of public
businesses it is o private business.
So. in the beginning, I sought to
gather about me the type of public
employe who would render faithful
ajid honest service.
Honesty of Officials.,
"Unwavering honesty has been
the initial qualification of those re
ceiving appointments. Capacity for
the particular Jjranch of service to
which the appointment was made
came next, and I can honestly say
that no one has -been appointed to
serve the state who would not have
been appointed to a similar position
in my own business.
"The appropriations of the legis
lature amounted to $15,929,492.48.
Minus deficietices from 'the last pre
ceding biennium, this amounts to an
increase of $5,955,806.75. This in
crease is accounted for principally in

''Under the civil administrative
code, six administrative departments
were established. After having been
in effect for five months it is pos
sible to show the figures through
which a definite saving of $50,428.48
has been effected in operating ex
pense. Upon this basis the saving
for the biennium will amount to
$201,713.92. .. '
. Social Welfare Work.
"Under the head of social welfare,
the subject of pardons, paroles, com
mutations, : furloughs,, etc., is of
largest importance, and attention to
it is especially directed now because
of the agitation that has been cre
ated regarding the release of prison
ers through varying applications of
the principles of prison reform.
"During the first seven months of
this year, this subject of paroles was
handled by the hoard of pardons and
paroles. Its members were appoint
ed by a former administration, and
its acts were subject entirely to the
legislation bearing upon this subject.
Accprding to the records, it appears
that this board granted 120 paroles
during the first seven months of the
year. Under the code, the board
was relieved of its duties, and during
the past five months 36 paroles have
been granted. Of the 120 who were
paroled by the 'hoard, 36 violated the
trust placed in them. Of the 36 later
released, three have violated the prol"
visions of their parole. .
12 Furloughs Granted.
"Twelve furloughs have been
granted during the present admin
istration, eigljt by the governor,
three by Lieutenant Governor Bar
rows, and one by Acting Governor
Bushee. Qf this number it appears
that only two have violated the pro
visions of the furlough. Also seven
pardons and commutations have
been granted, six by the governor
and one by Lieutenant Governor
Barrows. - -
"The welfare of the children
throughout the state is now receiv
ing very careful attention through
this newly created branch of social
welfare activity, and itis expected
that through this bureau, together
with the recommendations of the
children's code commission, the chil
dren of the state will receive the at
tention to which they are entitled
from the state. , ' , '
"The division of law enforcement
is given original jurisdiction , with
reference-to viojatiojis of the laws
that relate to prohibition and auto
mobile stealing. Earlier in" the year
an extensive force was maintained
for the enforcement of the prohibi
tory laws. The work then was made
especially difficult because of the wet
ferritory surrounding Nebraska. The
amount of fines recovered and. turned
into the school fund of the state as a
result of the activities of this depart
ment is over $10,000 and the value of
automobiles taken in the transpor
tation of liquor amounts to $105,000.
During he year 683 convictions were
obtained for the violation of the pro
hibitory law. V
Plan .New Capitol.
"Though' Nebraska is an interior
state, and its industrial activities are
fairly limited, it became . none the
less apparent that the radical ele
ments, particularly the I. W. "W.,
were gaining a foothold here. There
fore instructions were sent ,out- to
county attorneys to enlist the serv
ices of -local peace officers in appre
hending Jhese radicals and taking
them into custody.
"The last legislature passed quite
a comprehensive act, bearing upon
this subject, and it is our purpose to
see that it is enforced to ihe letter.
If relief cannot be obtained through
this channel, then these radicals will
be turned over to the federal gov
