Changes Necessary to Expedite Pro-
cecdlngo Other Matters at
the State Capital.
"I am thinking strongly , " said Gov
ernor Slmllonberger , "of incorporat
ing Into my message to the legislature
a suggestion for an amendment to thu
Sackott law. AH It now stands my ex
perience Is that It Is practically Im
possible to get good results from act-
tlons under it. l-'or instance , last July
1 caused ouster proceedinga to be
started against Chief Donahue of
Omaha. With the slow methods
of court procedure It will be Im
possible to get any results
from that milt until long after 1 am
out of ofllce. I am persuaded that If
a governor , soon after coming into
oliice , should begin ouster proceed
ings against some otllclul under tlio
Sackett law , ho would be unable oven
with the best of proof , to secure re
sults until near the close of Illsterm , ,
and , possibly , not until the onicial's
term of olllce were out.
"I am thinking of recommending In
my message that the Sackett law bo
amended so that a governor after a
[ nibllc hearing on any charge- pre
ferred against an official of the state
for dereliction of duty , might oust
lilin without any process of court , the
individual affected having the right
to appeal against th& governor's
action , but to do so from the outside.
This Is a lot of power to give a gov
ernor , but in my opinion it is the way
to make the Sackett law effective.
"We talked the matter over at the
convention of governors and it was
generally agreed that a governor
would bo so hedged about by pro
ceedings taking place in public , with
Ills record and good name at stake ,
that ho would be mighty sure of his
ground before ho would exercise such
n power invested In him. "
Water Sites In "Cold Storage. "
State Engineer E. C. Simmons , who
Is also secretary of the state board of
Irrigation , states in his report to the
governor that methods have been
used In this state to monopolize water
power sites and to put them "into
cold storage. " These methods are
strangely like those charged against
the so-called "water power trust , "
and indicate the existence of condi
tions In this state that have generally
been ascribed to the far western and
far soastern states. Mr. Simmons re
ports the following :
"Attempts to put power plants into
cold storage by means of overlapping
filings , and the use of other dilatory
tactics , and applications to segregate
large areas on the pretense of waterIng -
Ing the land from some dry gulch
have been mado. A filing fee of from
$10 to $100 , according to the magni
tude of the application , should bo
llxed and a guaranty required to In
sure good faith of the applicant. The
state should receive a reasonable
rental on all power sites. " .
Arsenal for the Guard.
The coming legislature will bo
asked to provide for a warehouse or
arsenal for the national guard in Lin
coln. At least the quartermaster's of
llce should bo housed there , If the
building should bo built , and possibly
the entire adjutant general's office
would bo moved. Members of the
present board of public lands and
buildings and the governor are in fa
Mall Clerks "Up In Arms. "
From one-fourth to one-half of the
railway mail clerks of the country
threaten to throw up their jobs and
quit the service if present plans to
lengthen the working hours of the
men are carried out after the holi
days as has been proposed at Wash
ington. If the men make good their
throats , the result , it Is said , would
bo to embarrass the service worse
than a strike. Until trained substi
tutes could bo found for the dlssatis-
lied men the effect would be to delay
malls and generally hamper service. *
Mullen Has Returned.
Attorney General Arthur .Mullen re
turned Irom Washington , whither ho
wont in company with L. L. Albert
and C. O. Whcdon arguing In behalf
of the state the bank guaranty case
where the state appealed from the
llnmngs of unconstltutlonallty of the
federal circuit court. Mr. Mullen says
that while ho would not presume to
predicate what the court will do , ho
feels very hopeful of a reversal of the
lower court's decision In the matter.
The court listened to the argument
with much attention.
Requisition Issued.
Governor Shallcnberger has Issued
a requisition for the person of Roy
Gardner , alias William Gardner , of
Lincoln , charged with grand larceny ,
and now under arrest In Georgia. It
Is charged that Gardner on or about
December 21 , 1909 , stole from a
smokehouse In University Place two
dressed hogs and a dressed beef , all
worth about $100. After tlila Incident
Gardner enlisted in the regular army
and has boon for the last ninety days
conluunl in the federal prison at Fort
Oslothorro for desertion ,
Secretary Royce Reports on Bank
The abstract of the condition of Ne
braska state bank * on November 10 ,
when the last call was issued , shows ,
acordlng to the statement given out
by Secretary S , S. Royso of the bank
ing board , that deposits have mater
ially fallen off as compared with one
year ago and loans have advanced
almost as much. This conditions Mr.
Iloyso does not consider alarming , as
ho points out that crops have not
been moving , farmers waiting for bet
tor prices , and this circumstance
would alone , In his estimation , ac
count for the decreased deposits and
the Increased loans.
The compilation of the reports indi
cates that In GCO state banks there
tire unO.OfiT depositors , and' that the
average reserve Is 21 per cent. This
lust Is an Important Item. The state
banking law requires that the cash
reserve bo maintained at 1G per cent
Ht least. Of the total cash reserve
In the banks , more than three-fourths
of it is in the hands of eastern cor
respondents so that the actual cash
on hand in the state bank valuts Is
only a little more than 0 per cent.
Tills is not an unusual condition.
Secretary Hoyse's summary of his
analysis of the conditions In the
banks of the state is as follows :
"This icport compared with the
one of a year ago shows that loans
have increased $1,98-1,216.26 and de
posits have decreased $1,5 : ' > 2,011.91 ,
and compared with the report of Aug-
ijst 25 , 1910 , loans have increased
SJ2.115.483.7G and deposits have de
creased ? 3,487,401.7G. While the in
crease of loans and decllno in de
posits are a little more pronounced
than usual at this season of the year ,
on the whole , under existing condi
tions , the report is all that could bo
"It is a known fact that very little
of tills year's crop has been placed
on the market and advices from the
banks indicate that no inconsiderable
portion of the 1909 crop still remains
unsold. I am of the opinion that this
fully 'explains the increase of loans
and decrease of deposits shown.
"Another factor that has materially
Increased the loans and which also
has an effect upon the deposits is an
unusual amount of stock feeding that
Is being done in this stato. All those
Influences operating easily explains
the heavy demand apparent. "
Best Acre of Corn.
The first prize of $50 offered by the
state board of agriculture for the

Governing State Institutions.
Governor-elect Aldrlch is credited
with adopting a centralized system In
the state Institutions that will bo In
directly under his care. It is said
that under appointments in each In
stitution have been made at the sug
gestion of the head of the institution
and , having given him the selection
of his subordinates , expects the chief
to deliver the goods. Subordinates
who ca-nnot got along with the chief
will bo dropped.

bo presented to the next legislature

mission form of government although
a few phases have been taken from
the experience of the cities in which

Number of State Institutions Is
Double During the Past
Two Years.
Sixteen state sanatoria , 28 county
hospitals and 21 municipal hospitals
for tuberculosis have been erected
and provided for since January 1 ,
1909 , says a recent bulletin of the Na
tional Association for the Study and
Prevention of Tuberculosis.
Within the last two years the num
ber of state institutions for tubercu
losis has doubled , and the number of
county and municipal institutions has
increased from about 30 to 80. The
expenditures of public money for the
treatment of tuberculosis also has
more than doubled. Not less than
$3,000,000 of state money was appro
prlated for tuberculosis Institutions in
1909 , when 43 legislatures met , and
, over $600,000 in 1910 , when only 11
.legislatures were In session. The ap
propriations of counties and cities for
tuberculosis hospitals and sanatoria
In the last two years will aggregate
'fully $2,500,000 , bringing tfio total
.of . official appropriations for tuaercu-
'losls ' hospitals up to over $6,000,000
in the past two years.
In spite , however , of this good show
ing , the National Association for the
Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis
states that not one-tenth of the pub
lic provision for tuberculosis that is
needed has been made. More than
250,000 tuberculosis patients are con
stantly without proper institutional

and drank it every day. I never had
