Eager Wins Charter Fight.
The troubles of the Lancaster county -

iore the house in discussion over the
Xaucoln charter bill , introduced by
Eager. It was a case of Eager against
"the rest of the delegation and he won

committee called , but could not get

To Adjourn April 4.
Members of the legislature awoke
to the fact that they must do a prodi
gious amount of work in a short time
-or remain In session for a consider
ably longer period than is agreeable
uo most of them. This realization
came with the report of the joint com-
anittee on adjournment.
The committee agreed to an ad

two more weeks of work. This would

Judicial Bills Recommended.
Bojth pending judicial bills were
recommended to pass by the house
committee of the whole. These are
the Lee non-partisan , judiciary bill and
the Quackenbush bill providing for
election of supreme court judges by
districts and for an Intermediary court
The vote on both bills was almost a
straight party line up. Onthe Lee
non-partisan judiciary bill the vote
stood 50 to 42 with eight absent.
Hardin was the only republican voting
for the bill , while Busee , Fries and
Shoemaker were the only democrats
voting against it.
On the Quackenbush bill Allen ,
Hardin and Hasik , republicans , voted
for it , and Fries , Riha and Shoemaker
voted against it. The former bill may
squeeze through with just enough
votes to pass it , but the latter has lit
tle show of passing. It is a constitu
tional amendment and requires sixty
votes. There are but fifty-four demo
Cordeal's Primary Bill.
While the house was passing a.
closed primary bill the senate was voting
ing on Cordeal's primary bill , S. F.
261. The bill passed by a vote of J,7
to 12. Kohl , Placek , Reagan and Tan
ner , were the four democrats who ,
with thirteen republicans , passed the
bill. Varner , republican , and Horton
and Volpp were absent and not voting.
The Cordeal bill provides two ways of
placing candidates , first by political
committees which are selected at pri
mary elections , and petition of regis
tered party voters.
A final effort will be made to get
through the house the Matrau nonpartisan
tisan board of control bill , a measure
which , it is believed , answers more
specifically the platform pledges of
both -democratic and republican par
ties than any of the others now -pend
ing. As a step toward this effort , the
vote , defeating the bill , was reconsid
ered and the bill was amended in com
mittee of the whole to remove an ob
jectionable feature. It has been again
placed on the third reading calendar.
Last Pay Day For Legislators.
Members of the senate drew their
last month's salary from the state on
Tuesday. Either the $100 checks must
be stretched over the remaining days

pockets and pay for the privilege of
serving the people of the state. Wed
nesday is the sixtieth day , the last day
of the session for which pay is pro
vided. Employes of the senate are
more fortunate and will continue to be
paid as long as the session lasts.

So Says Prof. Otto Klotz of Do
Globe Went Spinning Through Heav
ens as Gigantic Tetrahedron Life
Pushed Here From Some Part
of Universe by Pressure.
Ottawa , Ont. The earth once was
the shape of a three-sided , flat-headed
top and went spinning through the
heavens as a gigantic tetrahedron , ac
cording to Prof. Otto Klotz of the Do
minion Observatory , writing in the
Journal of the Royal Astronomical So
ciety of Canada.
The shape was assumed just after
the globe had taken on a more solid
form. Under the tendency of contrac
tion the stresses and strains followed
the lines of least resistance. The
tetrahedron is one of the regular geometrical
metrical solids which has the least
volume for a given surface. As a
tetrahedron the planet had four cor
ners , six edges and four surfaces , the
edges manifesting themselves as moun
tains and the surfaces as depressions ,
and hence oceans.
"We know , " says Professor Klotz ,
"that the South Pole is surrounded fry
land , which corresponds to an apex
of the tetrahedron , while opposite to
it is a surface equivalent to a depres
sion , or ocean. In the tetrahedron
every corner has a surface opposite it ,
so that for the earth this would mean
that land and watei are antipodal ,
which is fairly well represented in the
actual conditions. Another result
would be that the land masses would
be broad in the northern hemisphere
and taper toward the south , which also
agrees with our geography.
"Inversely , the oceans should con
tract toward 'the south , a condition
fairly well borne out. The north polar
sea being represented by a surface of
the tetrahoidal figure and the south
polar one by a corner , it would follow
that the flattening of the earth in the
southern hemisphere would be less
than in the northern , and furthermore
that the force of gravity would In
crease less rapidly toward the South
Pole than toward the North Pole.
Both these considerations have been
confirmed by geodetic and pendulum
Answering the question as to how
life first got on earth. Professor Klotz
asserts it probably was pushed here
from some other part of the universe
by light pressure.
"A force , though very small in mag
nitude , has been discovered In light ,
known as light pressure , which oper
ates in opposition to gravity , " he says.
"When particles of a spherical form
are reduced to a diameter of a sixth of
a micron , which is equivalent to 1-150-
000 of an inch , light pressure will push
such a particle into space. ' The spores
