( Sen Superintendent's Report , page -IDS. ) I would respectfully sug gest that a Biilllclent appropriation bo made to Imlia a new holler house outside of this iinlldlnir. for In Us present condition it Is - criminal negligence on the part ot the state to endanger the lives of so many chll- < ii-e.n. As 1 have not gone Into detail , there are other necessities not mentioned herein. In reference to the Insane asylum In the suburban part of Lincoln , I llnd it In n very crowded condition. There should he a mifll- cient appropriation rr..ido to enable the en largement und furnishing of the building to suoh n capacity us will meet the demands of the present and Increasing population of the state. Under date of Mnrch 7 a committee con sisting of members from the house and seu- nto paid n visit to the state penitentiary. While much can bo said In reference to the low land and the locality in which these buildings are located , there Is nothing that ' an be nald that would In nny way reflect ttnon the management of that Institution. TK ! ono thing that Impressed me more than any other was the sanitary condition and the poor system i > t ventilation , which can and should bo remedied. In looking through the rolls , where 2S ! or more convicts are confined , I failed to find any closets. I'uor VeiKIliillon nl Penitentiary. The ventilation system now In use con sists of small branch pipes leading from the cages to the main shaft , which extends to the roof. If the current ot nlr is strong enough to create u suction It will partially draw the foul air from the cells through these air shafts ; if not , the impurities re main within the building , thus rendering It injurious to the health of those within Its walls. Under date of March 7 the joint commit tee of public lands and buildings of the senate and house-made n careful Inspection nf the State Capitol building and surround ings. I would respectfully call the attention of the members of this house to the neg lected nnpearance of the grounds and the dilapidated condition of the stone walks and Rtens leading to and from all parts of the building. Referring to the Interior of the- building , I would , first call.yoiir attention jtD'tho stone work. You will find In many places large noonings , imd gaps whqro heavy , rains and snow findready , access to the Interior , thus cousins Uio walls In many places to bo furred out of line , anil the same will apply to the dome. There are places In the stone capping nnd ornamental work above the ga bles where the mortar has fallen out and some nf the pillars or blocks are in a loose and unsafe condition , liable at any time to e.omo crashing down and causing much de struction In their course. The tin guttering that surrounds the roof proper to carry nway the water has rusted out , permitting the rilnago to enter the building Immediately over the upper oillco floors nnd hallways , enuslnc the plaster to fall , and the destruc tion of carpets and furniture within its reach. The senate chamber is not exempt from criticism. If my fellow members will cast their eyes to thu ceiling of this cham ber they will see without leaving their seats the truth of my statement. Tim woodwork of the outside doors lead- intr Into the building ; also the window frames and sashes , are greatly In need of attention , as appearances Indicate want of paint and filling. Upon entering the build ing from nny side , elUior from want of suffi cient help or neglect of those In charge , the tiling nnd steps -present anything but an In viting appearance , as Nebraska soil IB well represented in the corners and on the door mats. Permit mo to say that the ventilation and pnnitary condition of this building can bo greatly Improved. Artificial light would I'reatlv Improve the dark recesses ot the main halls where the sun's rays cannot pen- olrate. Your committee is of the opinion , and would respectfully recommend , that a suffi cient appropriation bo made for the neces- K.irv repairs which may bo deemed expedi ent , as nothing contributes BO largely to a rltv. or state , as Its well kept public build ings. _ _ VAX nusux JJIJXIHSrun CIIAURK.

" The senator from Douglas-then sent to the secretary's desk a copy of this morn- Ing's Ileo , with the following editorial marked : "If Senator Van Duson wants to represent the corporation lobby in trying to sidetrack revenue legislation , let him do so openly and above board. " At the conclusion of the reading of the editorial by the secretary Senator Van Uusen made the following statement : Mr. President , I brand the Innuendo con- [ lined In that editorial an absolutely falsa. Kvory senator on the door knows that 1 have neither talked to him about , or attempted , to inllncnrn him In reference lo his vote on the revenue bill luioun as II. H. 137. Kvory member of thu senate revenue committee knows that I havu earnestly sought to liavo S. F.

My vote hero U nolthor controlled by , the corporations nor the newspapers , but only by what I believe to bo right or wrong. He called upon Chairman Prout of the revenue committee , also Senators Canaday and lleynolds , who are members of the com- | mlttPc , to substantiate his HUitemciu. Senator Prout Mated that Senator Van Onsen had repeatedly urged the considera tion of S. F. 2JO , and had been very dill- , ggnt In cnauuvorliiB to tsecura favorable aotii.il upon it. Ho mid that owing to many pressing matters.especially the Investigat ing committee , the committee had found It dlltlcult to gut together far the purpose of considering ihcse , bills , but throe meetings had 'been ' given over to considering S.

In concluding , ho said that so far ns Mr. Van Iitwen Is concerned - corned , there was no ground for the In nuendo contained In the newspaper cnll- tnrlnl , Senators Reynolds nnd CannJay snld Mr. Van Dusen had been diligent , honest nnd hardworking In Ijehnlf of S.
