Washington.—The United States government has sent a warning to General Venustiano Carranza point ing out that “serious consequences may follow'’ his threatened confisca tion of foreign-owned oil plants in Tampico. This announcement was made by Secretary Bryan, after the latter had conferred with Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British ambassador, and representatives of American oil concerns. Already the Carranza officials have practically enforced an embargo on the exportation of oil by a big Eng lish company. The British ambassa dor, at the suggestion of Mr. Bryan, sent an urgent telegram to the Brit ish consul at Vera Cruz, which he was instructed to show to General Carranza. As the British fleet ob tains much of its fuel from the Tam pico oil fields, the probability of ser ious complications over the Carranza government's attitude is fully realized by the American government. Mr. Bryan said that the foreign owned oil companies "feared confis cation of their wells” by Carranza, and that the urgent representations had been made to forestall such ac tion. A decree issued by the Car ranza government makes it impossi ble for some of the foreign oil com panies to operate without the consent of the Mexican authorities, and some of the American concerns, it is said, have been forced to pay so heavy a tax that they have been practically compelled to shut down their plants. Dry and Wet Statistics. Washington, D. C.—As a result of the presentation of figures in the sen ate by Senator Martine of New Jer sey, tending to show that high li cense operates more beneficially in Nebraska than prohibition in Kan sas. The senator read statistics showing that there were 1.990 insane persons confined in institutions in Nebraska and 2,912 in Kansas. Of prisoners and juvenile delinquents there were 7S9 in Nebraska and 1.537 in Kansas and of paupers in almshouses in Kan sas, 735, and in Nebraska, 551. The above figures were brought out in a debate in which Senators Mar tine of New Jersey. Hitchcock of Ne braska and Bristow of Kansas had over the question whether there was less literacy, more insanity and more physcopathic patients in state insti tutions in a “wet” state than in a "dry” state. Students Narrow Minded. Manhattan. Kas.—College students as a rule are narrow minded, accord ing to David F. Houston, secretary of agriculture, who spoke before the students of the Kansas State Agri cultural college here recently. He urged them to broaded their outlook on life. “Lay a broad foundation in your school work,” he said. “Do not de spise subjects out of your chosen lines; lay a foundation on which you can stand firmly and which will allow you some latitude.” Secretary Houston asserted that no student could get the full worth of his college course by studying less than eight hours a day. Earthquake Caused Avalanche. Geneva.—The' International St. Goth ard railroad line has been cut by a huge avalanche and traffic between Germany and Italy through Switzer land is interrupted. The line is cov ered with packed snow twenty-four feet deep for a distance of 270 feet.

WOULD BENEFIT SMALL TOWNS Crinklaw’a Amendment to Female La bor Law May Settle Difficulties. The female labor law. in so far as It applies to the villages and towns and cities under 5,000 population, will be a dead letter if the bill introduced by Crinklaw of Antelope runs the leg islative gauntlet. The measure would settle the difficulties the Ne braska Telephone Co. and the Lincoln Telephone and Telegraph Co. have been having for the past, two years In the employment of female operators in the one-person exchanges of the state. Restaurants and laundries in a number of the smaller towns and cit ies would also be benefited by the bill. This has been a source of much trouble during the past two years. Although defeated two years ago. another sterilization bill has bobbed up in both houses of the legislature. In the senate the measure was intro duced by Senator ’ Shumwav, while in the house it is fathered by Represen tative Stebbins. The bill in the sen ate provides for a board of physi cians to have charge of administra tion of the law. Sterilization is to be practiced upon state wards only upon consent of relatives of the inmate. An innovation for the legislature will be a record of the votes of mem bers on measures before the commit tee, as well as in the main bodies. This will enable the public to keep pretty close tab on their members. When a bill is reported from a com mittee it will show how each member voted on it in the committee. Omaha senators want a new state house. They say the present struc ture is a disgrace to such a prosper ous state as Nebraska, and that we should feel ashamed of it.

The measure gives the power of rate regulation over to the state insurance commission and arms that body with sufficient authority to carry out its provisions. It is reported that the railroad com panies of Nebraska will not hire coun sel to represent them at this legisla ture, as they did two years ago, but will depend upon themselves and their paid advertisements to bring results when bills for railroad legislation come before the lawmakers.

Anderson of Phelps has introduced a bill changing the closing time of saloons to six o'clock instead of 8 o’clock. Representative Hostetler of Buffalo county does not believe in the giwing of tips. He has submitted a bill to the house providing a penalty of $10 to $100 fine for giving or accepting a tip. On the first day for introducing bills the house established a record.

Howell of Douglas has introduced a bill to consolidate South Omaha and other small cities around Omaha, with the latter. The bill provides for consolidation under act of the legis lature without a vote on the propo sition. The 500-pound dunnage exemption hitherto allowed shippers by Nebras ka railroads is done away with in or ders that have been issued by the State Railway commission. "Dunnage” covers braces and stays used in bulk carloads to secure the freight. In the past the railroads have carried 500 pounds actual weight of this dunnage free. The commission has cancelled the rule on the grounds that it puts a premium on careless packing In bulk and puts at a disadvantage those shippers who crate or box their goods (.Vrefully. IS PURPOSE OF MEASURE INTRO DUCED IN SENATE. DETAILS OF PRINTING BILL Bates Would Provide Hundred Thou sand Dollars for Erection of Plant Near Capitol.
