" "That was a good campaign talk before election last fall , " replied Allen ( if Pumas , . "and wo all used it moro or less , but it don't work on this body now. " The Tacts are that the adjournment will not delay the business of the session , as the only business transacted had the legis lature remained in session would have been a fruitless vote on senator. Senator Prout of Gage was of the opinion that the senators needed a few home-made pUU to give them * new stimulus for next week. Talbol of Lancaster suggested that there were ilm- claes physicians in Lincoln If any of the senators were sick , but Allen of 1'urnas thought the senators ought to have a chance occasionally to visit their constituents and lecure advice from them , to which Senator I'rout added that republican members were never afraid to face their constituents. Busi ness matters nt home needing attention was the real reason of the desire ot several sena tors for an adjournment and they finally succeeded In securing the favor of the ma jority. They did not want to leave with the session going on , an their votes are needed to keep the fuslonlsts In n minority. Miller of Buffalo is fast making a record as one ot the humorous members ot the body. He hurls popullstlc stump speeches at the republicans on the south side of tha senate with a vehemence that affords consid erable diversion for the majority. Ho op posed adjournment Friday bccaube he was not a "light" enough statesman to ride on tt pass nnd furthermore when ho reached the end of the railroad he was like Sheridan on his long ride , "still twenty miles from home. " So ho has gone on record as a legislator later without a pass. 1'roiit'n lliillot 11111.

U has been termed by the fuslonlsts as a bill to beat fusion. They have gone on rec ord solVJly as opposed to nny bill that would remove their present advantage of getting on the ballot three times. It Is true that the Prout bill Is not satis factory entirely to all the majority. There Is a feeling that the best ballot law legisla tion wpuld be to return to the law repealed two years ago.
