DESERT LEGISLATIVE HALLS Some of HIISpiuitoiN on n Tqnr Olln-rN mill lloiiNc .Ml-inlHTM Neck ' IlauiltN. ' LINCOLN , March 10. ( Special. ) Sevcra members of the senate committees on pub lie lands and buildings , reform sqhools unt asylums started last night upon a tour o Inspection of the various state Institutions They will- visit the blind asylum nt Nebraski City this morning and later go to Peru tt visit the Normal. The party consists o about ten senators , the house having rcfusei to authorize Us committees to take sucl a trip. The legislative halls wcro practically de serted today. In the senate Secretary Mor gan nnd one stenographer were on duty while the rest of the employes were tak ing a vacation at full pay , except the scnatt postmaster , who was on hand to distribute the mall. Likewise In the house , the clerk's olllco was the only ono open. A few of tht members who will not go homo came ant j went during the day. I The matter of grain liens for threahliiE I the same has been given considerable at- ! tcntlon during this session , several bills hav ing been Introduced along this line. Tester- , day the senate succeeded In rccoinmonilln ; , a bill for passage that gives the threshet and cornsheller n Hen upon grain threshed nnd corn shelled. The provisions of the bill are as follows : . Section 1. Any owner or lessees of a threshing machine , or corn shelter , who threshes grain or shells corn for another therewith by virtue of a contract , expressed or Implied , with the owner thereof , shall , upon filing the statement provided for In the next section , have a Hen upon sush grain for thu value of his services In thresh ing or shelling the same from the date of the commencement of such services. Soc. 2. Any person entitled to a lien under this chapter shall , within thirty days after the threshing or shelling Is completed , Illo In the olllco of the county clerk of the county In which the grain Is grown a state ment In writing , verified by onth , showing the amount and quantity of grain threshed or shelled , the price agreed upon for thresh ing or shelling and a description of the land upon which the grain was grown or Htorcd , Unless the person entitled to a Hen fllo such a statement within the time nforuHald ho shall bo deemed to have waived his right thereto. Sec. 3. Such n lien shall have priority over all other llcna and encumbrances on such grain. Sec. 4. Upon default being made In the payment of a debt secured by such' lien the eame may bo foreclosed upon the no- tlco and In the manner provided for the foreclosure of mortgages upon personal property nml the holder of such lien shall be entitled to the possession of the prop erty covered thereby for the purpose of foreclosing the same. Sec. 5. It shall bo the duty of the county clerk to fllo and Index such statement or lien upon the personal property required by law to bo filed In his olllco the same ns a mortgage upon personal property nnd for such bo shall bo entitled to a like fee. H is doubtful , however , whether the bill , If passed , will give grain threshers the pro- tectlon they are demanding. As has been eald before , the only farmers who refuse to pay their threshing bills as n rule nra tlio renters , who have no financial responsibility. That IH the class of farmers that usually have their crop mortgaged in ndvanco or are compelled to sell at once upon harvest ing , In nine cases out of ten they haul their grain directly from tbo thresher to the cluvntor , nnd the minute It Is unloaded Into the elovutor It loses Us Identity , Consequently quently no lien could attach to It. It would bo Impossible for the thresher to Illo a Hen upon each load as fast ns threshed , hence ho will find the proposed protection no protection nt all from the class of farmers who are In the habit of heating him. Farm ers who are able to atoro their grain pay their threshing bllla , ns they are financially responsible and can be for.-ed to do go. It would Germ that the bill If passed will sim ply encumber the statutes without ever beIng - Ing of much value as n law. .1 ml KIII i- ntKiilnnl $ iurliln. THCUMSEll. Neb. , March 10.

The members ol the board were Captain Vnrnum , Seventh cavalry ; Lieutenant Stockel , Tenth cavalry , and P. S. 'Hoyt of this city. Hoyt resigned early and the charges applied only to the army ofilcerp. . . The paper assorted they "stood In" with middlemen and dealers ; that they rejected horses offered by ranchmen nnd owners and afterward 'bought ' them from middlemen at excessive prices. The general tenor of the articles was an Insinuation that the officers received a "rake-off" from the middlemen. Colonel Hathaway states that his investi gation dlscloscfl that the charges of dls- lionesty are entirely unfounded. Horses re jected because unruly or vicious wore afterward accepted when broken and trained , which was proper. The only cause for adverse - verso criticism disclosed by Investigation Is that ono member of the board was at times unreasonable In his treatment of : iorse owners on account of his Indulgence In intoxicants.
