LINCOLN , Jan. 12.-Speclal.-There ( ) ap-
, pears to be some mysterious Influence at work ,
In favor ot delaying all measures for relief
of western Nebraskans who have suffered 1
from drouth. TOday several members nd-
mlttct on the floor , In committee ot the whole ,
that they were densely ignorant : ; as to the
matter under consideration , but each of them
IJrollllJtly voted to adjourn till Monday , In-
1steld ; of remaining In session this afternoon
, and informing themselves ot the exact status
of conditions. It , has , however , been pretty
effectively shown to members thaI the crying
necessity for legislative action Is upon the
subject of voting bonds for the purpose of
eupplyingtho destitute with seed grain. This
. Is a process that takes time , and If by the
' ' let ot March the election has been held allll
" bonds floated good time will have been made
! , The bills which seem to meet the most favor
$
at the hands ot the house 'aro these authoriz-
, ' . lug counties to use their own money In SUII-
plying their nccts. There seems to be no
violent disposition on the part ot any one to
move the wheels ot legislation In the direction
ot donating state asslstancc. The members
of the house seem lllsposell to allow the
destitute farmers all the relief which they
feel able to pay for In the future. Inter-
viewed on this point members say they 110 not
wish to encourage any direct charity , but
rather to enable those who wish to help
, , a tllelllheh'cs to do so. Consequently the bills
favoring a direct state appropriation ot $ \00- \
000 110 not excite much favorable comment
I.amborn's bill , house roll No.1 , which
was before the conllnltleo of the whole ,
authorizes county boards to issue bonds ot
their respective counties for the purpose ot
purchasing seed grain and feed for teams
used In cult lvnting the land upon which the
t seed ( Is plante(1. Counties are permitted to
Issue an amount not to exeeell 10 per cent
of j assessed ' valuation ot mho county ' for the
preceding year The bends must be sold
for the highest ohtulnable price not less tlllln
their taco value. No party shall be permitted
i to purchase any ot said grain until he shull
Ilave first made and lIIelt with the county
cleric an affidavit that he Is actually engaged :
i s , In farming , that he has no grain or feed for
r Ills team , the number of acres he has under
cultivation antI the number ot acres he In-
tends to put In crop for the season. This
must be supported by the allldavits of two
I crelllble residents of the county. All conditions ! -
tlons having been complied with , the cOllllty
clerk shall turnlsh each alllllleant grain for
seeding not to exceNt In value 75 cents an
, acre. Renters of land must also secure nih -
davits from owners to the same etreet.
Parties who obtain seW grain fraudulently
i shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor , and
sa ou conviction be punished by line not exceed-
s t , tag $100 or imprisonment not exceeding three
I months Parties entrusted with the selling
oC bonds who fall to make a satisfactory
accounting shall be deemed guilty of em-
beulcment. Persons swearing falsely to
allldavits provided In the act shall' bo deemed
guilty ot perjury and subjected to legal
penalties thereof. An emergency clause Is
attached to the bill

sions than as follows : For selling cattle , 40

Chairman Conaway salt that the committee
Oft relief would be ready to report In a few
minutes , and mho motion was lust.
Thomas sent up a resolution that Rev L. P.
Sudden bo requested to appear at 3 o'clock
p. m. and give Information , apprJxlmaUon
of amount ot relief on hand , and facilities
for transportation. On objection of Rleltetts
the resolution was laid over.
Conaway salt that his committee ! was now
ready to report. He presented house roll
No. 113 , by Conaway , and a substitute by
Brady. Horst wonted to knave what hall be-
come of house roll No.1 , which was II
measure for relief and bat been before the
house for nearly two weeks 'fhe speaker informed -
formed him that aIL relict bills were In charge
of the committee and had been reportetI.
Rhodes moved , to go into committee of the
whole to consIder house roll No. 1. Harrison (
object on the ground that he , for one , had
not hat time to consider the measure.
Higgins called attention to the fact tI'at
Immediate measures for procuring seed were
more Important than steps for forwarding
foot and clothing 'ihere would have to be
a special election called , with twenty days
notice , and then the bonds would have to be
oated. There was nb time to be lost.
Howard was of the same mind , He explained
that by the time all arrangements were mode
the state would be "In the bowels" of seed
time. Hhodes' motion was carried and the
house went Into committee of the whole on
house roll No. 1 , by Lamborn of Ret Willow ,
with Howard In the chair.
Munger pointed out that the bill authorIzed
counties to issue bonds for seed In any year
after limo passage of the bill , thus making It
a permanent measure and In force at any ,
time. The relief bill' ' of 1890 hall limited the
time ot voting bonds to that year alonc' The
present measure threw 'the matter wide open.
McNitt moved an amelllhnent 10 agree with
Munger's suggestion The first section ot the
bill provides "that the board of any county ot
this state shall have the authorily to Issue
the bonds of their respective counties to an
amount not to exceed 10 per cent of the
assessed valuation of the county for the preceding -
ceding year for the purpose { ot raising money
to purchase grain , etc. "
rtcNltt's : amendment was to strike out the
words "Cor the preceding year" and Insert
"for the year 1894. Debate on this motion
revealed that there was a large contingent ,
In the house In favor of passing a bill for I
permanent relief , or something whIch should
authorize counties to' protect themsel\'efJ at
allY time McNitt filially withdrew his
amendment , and on mo'ion of Sutton ot
Douglas the commltttee ot the whole rose
and reported progress A motion to take a
recess till 2 o'cloek was fo'lowed by a motion
to adjourn till Monday , 3 p , m. , which was
carried by a vote of 42 to 38 , twenty members
chancing their vote after the motion had
