Few Candidates,
Have Cinches on
; 'Assembly Jobs
Several Aspirants in Sight for
President Pro-tem of Ne
braska Senate and Speaker
Of the House, v
Lincoln, , DcT 27. (Special.)
AVith the session of the. legislature
only a week away, there appears to
be very few candidates for legisla
tive jobs who have a "lead-pipe
cinch" on the offices. ' In the senate
the present secretary, Clyde Barn
ard, appears to have no oppostrloin.
That body will have back 14 of
i the old members who are -so well
ackut'nted .with the work of Mr.
Binard that they are tullyatisfied
thai lie should rema n in office. On
rofr of this there are a half dozen
or mora former members of the
home or the constiiutonal conven
tion who are also well acquainted
with, his .work and have no desire to
i ml&ny change.
. This may also be said of Jerry
-Wilhelm, who represented Postmaster-General
Burleson in she senate
the last session Tind handed out the
mail with efficiency. It is under
stood also that James Howell of
Albion,- who was assistant sergeant-at-arms
of the schate last 'sessiQn,
will probably be retained, as every
one was, satisfied with hs work. Out
side of these three - places, senate
positions are still in doubt.
President Pro-tem.
There are several candidates for
president pro-tem of the senate. The
lieutenant governor by constitutional
provision is the presiding officer of
that body, but a president pro-tem
is elected to take the place .of the
ltcutenant-gcWernor in his absence.
During the last session the lieutenant-governor
told the senate caucus
that the man selected by his associ
ates as the:'r temporary (presiding of
ficer would be called 'to the chair
frequently. This vear it is nrnhahle

. That the office of president pro

honor and service was. shown in the
last session, when the lieutenant

regular session and once in the

mentioned among the possiblities for
that nosition from among the old
rne nbers, while Walter Anderson of
Lincoln is also a candidate;
Candidates for Chief Clerk.
For chief clerk, Will Hitchcock,
clerk of the last session, is again a
candidate, as is Frank P. Corrick of
Linco'n. Hitchcock appears to have
considerable opposition from many
of the o!d members with' whom he
had trouble during the last session
because of certain acts of the chief
clerk, but Hitchcock row says that
he has profited by his experience.

Legislature of
Nebfaska Faces
Laws Must Be Revised to
Agree With New Constitu-,
tion Change in CodeBill
Thought Likely.
" T.ineoln. Dee. 27. (Sneeial.V
Vith Christmas out of the way, peo
ple are beginning te look next to
New Year and what it will bring.
The thing, which w41 mean most to
the stitj is the coming legislature.
Not for years has a session of the
state governing body faced , such
great problems a it wifl have to
meet during the next four months.
The new constitution, endorsed and
pttt in fofce by. the voters of the
state at the November election, wilt
go into force with the coming ot the
new year and one of the problems
which tne legislature will have to
meet is to change all existing, laws
which may, conflict with the new
documents ? "
May Revise Code Law.
Another problem" may be an at
tempt to change, the existing code
law. It is understood that Gover
nor McKelvie will suggest amend
ments to the law in his message to
the legislature. In the conference
which he has held with the repre
sentatives of different activities of
the state during the past few weeks
he has endeavored to discover 'their
needs and will without doubt be in
fluenced somewhat by thehTTnThis
message to the 4egislature
The. "blue ?ky" law will certainly
meet with some changes if the feel
ing among people on the outside is
taken into considerations-Some peo
ple areinot at all backward in say
ing that they bel;eve the present law
is of more damage to the people of
the state than when there was no
law covering the sate of stock.
Buyer oa Guard.
. Heretofore when a stock salesman
approached a prospective buyer it
was up to .the buyer to make an
investigation of the proposition if he
did not have faith in the agent. Un
der the present law many salesmen,
so it is said, are not at all back
ward in representing that "this
proposition has been fully investi
gated by the state and r$ has given
ire endorsement and backing." It
has even been hinted that some I
salesman have left, the impression
that because the state, has put its
endorsement on thel Sale of certain
stock, that it guarantees against any
loss, as PTdoes in the bank guar
r.nty law.
It -is ;.also understood that the J
banking interests of the state will
demand that thebanking bureau be
made a department .apart front the
department of trade and commerce
They point to the fact that it is of
sufficient importance that the man
at the head should be forced to give
his whole time to1 the bankingNle
partment and not be handicapped by ,
having under his care the "blue sky,"
insurance, fire preventidn and dther
bureaus. ' .
Secretary Overworked.
They insist that if the present sec
retary of trade and commerce had
not been compelled to divide his
time among other activities that he
might have discovered sooner "the
condition of certain banks which are
now in the hands of receivers. They
do not blame the secretary so much
as they da the fact that he is over
worked and cannot give sufficient
time to the banking interests.
It rs also understood that the dairy
interests of the state feel that they,
too, are entitled to a 'ike considera
tion. They do not like the idea of
being madje secondary to other in
terests. Just what they will demand
is not known but it is understood
that in the c conferences with the gov
ernor the dairy men have fyrt been
at all backward in giving the execu
tive of the state a few ideas to con
sider. Lutherans to Establish

traded the men stock in the Banker?
Fire company for liberty , bonds,
