"We want this legislature to consider the fact that we have in South Omaha a total assessed valuation of prop erty Of 130.000,000. This bill, If passed, would greatly reduce this. Were this bill to pass we would haVe'two conflicting ele ments brought together and this would result In great Injury to both cities. We know there would be no chance whatever under this bill for annexation, for the people of South Omaha would never vote for It, but the Injury would be done by placing the law on the statute books. Kill the Lee bill, amend the Omaha charter bill so as to leave no chance for annexa tion, gentlemen, and you will enshrine yourselves In the hearts and affections of the people of this fair city." ' Lee Hakes Retreat. Lee at this Juncturo arose and said that while consolidation was In harmony with the trend of the times and for the good of the Interests involved, perhaps the time for the consolidation of the two cities was not opportune and that he would be the lost to try to force on South Omaha what Its people did not want. "Indeed," he declared, "I will be the first to bow to the will of my friends and neigh bors and will not push the bill." This remark was greeted with" loud and enthuslastlo applause. "I think, however," continued Lee, "that some of the statements about the Injury to property interests are exaggerated, but be that a It moy I see that It Is not the time to try to enact such a law. No mat ter when we have this consolidation we want it only at the bidding of the people of both cities. Friction from either side would be fatal to the objects sought and so I see this Is not the time for it. When South Omaha and Omaha are married we want a gay honevmoon and we have seen enough today to convince us that we would not. have such a festival now." Again was Lee greeted with 'great cheers when be gave utterance to this speech. Lee stated after the meeting that his commit tee, cities and towns would report back this bill , for indefinite postponement. Firemen's ' Bill Killed. Tho bill to divide the hours of labor for the Omaha fir omen Into twelve-hour shifts, Introduced by Barnes, was killed in the house today by a vote of 42 to 34. End of Terminal Tax Bill. The house put a final end to the terminal taxation bill which Omaha would like to have seen passed this morning. With the death of this Important measure Omaha ' members who. have had little they asked at the hands of the legislature are convinced that Omaha will have to begin a systematic campaign of education out In the state If It la ever to secure the passage of such a law as this. The fact Is something will need to be done if Omaha ever gets any law through the legislature which it really wants. Lee came very near hitting the head of the nail today when in reference to the terminal taxation bill he said: "Whenever the rural members of this house tlnd out that Omaha wants anything they line up against that proposition as if their lives depended upon it. The rural members are always very Impatient when it comes to a matter affecting Omaha or union labor, both of which they Invariably oppose." Actios on Railroad Bills. The house railroad committee tonight agreed to recommend H. R. 371, by Bed ford, and H. R. 306. by Caldwell, maximum freight rate bills, to go on general file to gether. It will now rest with the house whether they are to be advanced and con sidered with the Foster-Junkin-Davl com modity bill. Representative Caldwell ap peared before -ahe committee In defense of his bill. The committee recommended for postponement H. R. 800, by Jones, the fusion antl-paas bill, also Representative Harmon's nntl-pass bill, together with Har. mon's maximum passenger rate bill. The committee als decided to postpone the Berge-Harmou anti-pass bill which Mr. Harmon first Introduced and In defense of which Mr. Berge appeared before the com mittee three weeks ago. KOI TINE BE SATIS PROCEEDINGS Bill Introduced at Bequest of the Governor. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, March 0. (Special.) Upon the personal request of Governor Mickey this morning the senate allowed the Introduc tion of the county engineer bill, which the governor vetoed because of defects. In the bill recently passed which Invalidated it Accompanying the bill were these two let ters from the governor giving his reasons for vetoing the measure and for asking for the introduction of a similar bill: A careful study , of 8. F. 8. entitled "A bill for an act to amend section chap ter xll, Cobbey's Annotated Statutes of Ne braska for the year l&H," Impels me to the belief that It Is unconstitutional, for the following reasons: 1. It Is an amendatory act and does not contain a provision for the repeal of the original section. 2. The bill purports to amend a particular section of the statutes, but the new pro visions are not germane to the original sec tion. The original section relates alone to boundaries and monuments, while the new matter In the amendment relates to the re pairing and construction of bridges. On account of these vital detects I re turn the bill to you without my approval. In view of the fact that the objections to 8. F. 8. which I have this day returned to your honorable body without my approval, are purely technical, and In view of the further fact that the subiect matter of said bill represents much labor on the part of the legislature and Is of great Interest to many citizens of the state, It seems to me fitting that whatever merit the bill may carry should not be lost to the people whom It afTects because of said technical defects, occasioned by careless prepara tion. At the urgent request, therefore, of senate members I feel It my duty to ask for the Introduction and consideration of the accompanying bill, which Is In sub stance a reproduction of 8. F. 8, but which Is so drawn. I believe, as to obviate the mistakes in Its predecessor. The salary bill Introduced by Good of Nemaha to make the pay of all deputy state officers $1,800 a year was killed, the vote being 15 to 13, not a constitutional number having voted in the affirmative. This bill was Introduced in order to place all the deputies on the same salary, at present the deputy secretary of state being limited to $1,600 by statute. Wllsey made an effort to get his railroad bill, providing that freight trains shall run at a speed of ten miles an hour, from the hands of the committee to which it was recommitted yesterday, but was unsuccess ful. Wllsey's motion was td have the com mittee report back the bill without amend ment. A number of the senators explained their vote by saying they would be In favor of a motion to have the bill reported back, but they were not in favor ef Instructing the committee not . to amend -the bill. The committee had previously amended the measure so the speed rate should be seven miles an hour and the matter came up for consideration In the committee of the whole and was recommitted to the standing com mittee. S. F. 87, providing for :the payment Of costs in misdemeanor cases, was passed at the morning session. 8. F. 176 and S, F. 184 were recommended for passage. The former fixes the length' of a school term according to the number of pupils, making the shortest term five months. 8. F. 184 provides that when a district falls to levy a tax for school pur poses the same may be done by the county clerk upon the recommendation of the county superintendent. Most of the morning was spent by the senate In the committee of the whole, with Shreck in the chair, In a discussion of 8. F. 112, which was finally recommended for passage. The bill reduces the salary of bank examiners from $1,800 to $1,600. An amendment by Ollltgan was adopted to cause the discharge of examiners when a bank falls within six months after having been reported solvent by the examiner. Gibson started the debate by moving an amendment to make the salary $1,800. Most of the senators took a shot at tho bill one way or the other; GUllgan, however, was tho most earnest In denouncing the pres ent manner In which the bank examiners attend to their duties. He cared little for the amount of the salary, he said, but he wanted bank examiners to protect the de positors as well as the banks. He recited that in his community there had been five bank failures, one for $100,000, which had paid 10 cents on the dollar. He had learned from bankers that In nine cases out 'of ten a bank examiner never spent more than three hours In checking up the books. He recited that when the reports of banks were received by the State Banking Board they were locked In a vault and It Was Impossible to get any information from the board. Only yesterday he said he had asked to see some records from which to get some facts and the officer Jn charge of the office of the board refused him the privilege. On motion of Gibson of Douglas the senate took a recesa for ' thirty minutes this afternoon, marched to the house and listened to the protests of citlsena of South Omaha against the so-called annexation bill. After recess the senate resolved Itself Into a committee of the whole, with Gibson Ce wish you would feel perfectly free to write the Doctor at any time. Ask him anything you with to know about your hair. You will ob tain the best medical advice free, and no one will see your letter but the Doctor. Address, Dr. J. C. Ayer, Lowell, Mass. Testimonials?

F. 174, allowing cities of the second class to make a ley for the purpose of Improving the roads leading into me towns, upon the petition of a majority of the tree holders aiong the road, and to make the poll tax W nen paid In cash. B. F. loi, to compel ruiirottds to carry stock at a rate of eighteen miles an hour on the main line and fifteen miles an hour on branch lines and to allow the roads to designate three days in the week as stock snipping days for the branch lines; the law not to apply on branch roads other than on these three days. This designation of shipping days was sn amendment put on by Gould the introducer of the measure. When the committee arose Harsh moved that the senate not concur In the amend ment, for the reason, he said, persons living on the branch lines would be seri ously handicapped. He said the commis sion men would know Just what days stock was to arrive In bulk and could more easily manipulate the markets. For that reason, and the further reason thnt he believed the railroads would only rui stock trains three days In the week he wanted the amendment killed. Gould said he had talked to many Cattle shippers about the amendment and they were for It. The amendment was adopted. 8. F. 213, providing for county courts to settle up estates when deceased had left no debts, with the concent of the heirs and without an administrator, was recom mended for passage. 8. F. 206. providing that the State Bosrd of Public Lands and Buildings shall have the authority to rent or lease buildings owned but not used by the state, was recommended for passage. 8.

F. 258, by Thomas, for a constitutional amendment to allow all cities of 6.000 and over to make their own charters, was placed; on general file. TERMINAL TAX KILLED I HOISB Douglas Members Ask to Have Bill Go on File. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. March (Special Telegram.) A lively but one-sided fight on the subject of terminal taxation was precipitated In the house this morning soon after that body convened. The revenue and taxation committee's adverse report on H. R. 295, by Clarke of Douglas, the terminal taxa tion bill, came In with other committee re ports. Immediately Clarke moved that the report on the bill be not adopted now, but laid over until next Tuesday, or as soon thereafter as could properly be taken up. His object was to give time for further discussion on the bill end enable the Doug las county members to assemble their argu ment for the bill. In speaking to his mo tion Clarke took occasion to urge the need for such a law as this bill contemplated, He pointed out that while the railroads owned 15 per cent of all property In cities and towns they paid but $.2 per cent of the taxes, that they derived greater protec tion from city Improvements than most other taxpayers and yet failed to pay their Just share of these public burdens. After expatiating for some length on the merits of the bill he pleaded with the house to give those who favored It a fair chance to be heard. But the die was cast, for no sooner had Clarke taken his seat than half a dozen members from rural districts Jumped to the floor demanding recognition. McElhln ney got the floor and the Burt county man launched Into an attack on everything per taining to the subject of terminal taxation. He wanted the committee report adopted without delay. And then came Cunning ham from Hamilton, who also could see no reason why the friends of this bill should be given a chance to be heard. Following Cunningham came Douglas, chalrmnn of the committee that had killed the bill, refusing It a hearing on the floor of the house. He thought there was no reason why the matter should be con tinued. Hoare of Platte came then with his bit of talk against Clarke's motion, asking the very unique question. "Whence comes the demand for this bill? Does It not come from Omaha, and Omaha alone?" Assuming that the rest of the cities and towns over Nebraska having rallrpads had not awakened to their own Interests. Lee of Douglas then made a very forcible and logical argument for the adoption of the Clarke motion, urging the importance not only to Omaha but every Incorporated city and village In the state of this law. He said It was a shame for the house to refuse to let so Important a matter go before It for a full and free discussion. But argument was like water on a duck's ?fi,ni When the ro was coed on McEIh nney's motion as an amendment to Clarke s to adopt the committee report the vote stood 65 to 24. Lee had told the house which had Just witnessed the on slaught of the country members that "Our rural friends are very Impatient whenever the Interests of a city or a union labor organization are at stake." The detail vote stood: Yeas Andaraoo (H'jn'o)01lcnl, ' Atwood, Hill, Baaon, Hoars, Bartoo, Hoarrra. Bowman, Holllet. BurieM. Horton, Caaabaar. Hon, Caaaal, Jarkaon, Chrmanscn, Jahual. Coata, Johnaon.

DOISGS OP TUB LEGISLATORS Blame Is Laid to Members of the WroatT Committee. (From a feltaff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, March l.-(3peclal.)-Members of the senate committee on public printing have been taken to task by a Llnocln labor paper and their names printed as men to be remembered by laboring men, for in definitely postponing the allied printing trades bill.

Dlmery, who is also a member of the committee on public printing, is a mem ber of the committee on public lands and buildings which killed the bill.

The house committee on cities and towns will hold a special meeting next- Tuesday afternoon to hear discussion on the bill and Invites all from Omaha who desire to at tend to be present. Haste in getting the bill through is necessary now that but thirteen days in the house and fourteen In the senate remain of the session. The dele gation from Omaha professes to be har monized at last on the bill and no fights are anticipated. - BUTTER AGAIN IN EASY REACH The High Class Creamery Product Can Be Bought Today for 28 Cents Per Pound. Butter, -which was once esteemed a de sirable tablo accessory, Is again permissi ble In the homes of well regulated families. This morning the, creamery product may be obtained for 28 cents a pound, or Just 10 cents less than was possible two week ago. The price fell off 7 cents In the last four days. Th'ls is why butter promises again to appear1 on Veek days as well as Sundays. "' The warm weather is accredited with forcing dovtfn-trie 'cost, for It has enabled the production'' trt more cream. The farmer who was getting tfi cents a pound for but ter fat In February has io accept 33 cents today, but the -urban population will not worry any about tbaU The ereamery man doesn't care, so much, either, for he figure; It out that the drop In prlee will mean an Increased consumption of butter. There fore, there Is rejoicing pretty nearly all the way around the ring,' but the plain citizen with the trained' palate will be the gladdest. A few , weeks back the retail price charged for the beet grades of cream ery butter was the highest since 1893. Now the cost Is about normal again, and prob ably as low as it will get, at least for a while. the enemy's obstinate resistance, we have i occupied Slaochltun, five miles northweet VI MUnui'il) I til lilt isu, inu i,i,,i c iiunn- east of Kiaochltun, and Biintaitzc, live miles north of Mukden.

Kxteat of lefeat l aknown. 8T. PETERSBURG, March 10.-3:06 a. m. St. Petersburg this morning knows, little more of the outcome of the battle of Muk den than it knew Wednesday night, and little more of the fate of General Kouro patkin's beaten army. It Is not even known whether the railroad has been cut and connections destroyed, though It is be lieved that the reported destruction of the lino by General Oku's army refers to the damage Indicted on Wednesday, which was not serious, though traffic was twice inter rupted. It is evident, however, that the Japanese are pressing closer to this Indis pensable line of retreat. Their shells oc casionally cut the wires of the telegraph lines paralleling the railroad and civilian line men are displaying no less bravery than their soldier associates by climbing the poles and replacing the wires under fire. Russians Ask Armistice. LONDON. March 10. In the lobby of the House of Commons last, night it was ru mored that General Kouropatkln had asked for an armistice, but the report could not be traced to any reliable source. In the opinion of English military critics General Kouropatkin's forces are doomed to complete disaster. Careful study of all the avenues of possible escape and the disposition of the victorious Japanese armies leads to the conclusion that the best he can hope Is to save a mere rem nant of his army after devoting whole divisions to slaughter. Much Importance Is attached to General Kawamura's myste rious unlocated army, which is momentarily expected to complete the closing of the net around the defeated host by appearing somewhere In the extreme east in the neigh borhood of KIngfan, thus blocking the sole remaining route, Ylngfan, to Tie Pass, through Wanklako Pass. The Dally Telegraph, in an editorial ar ticle well reflecting the general opinion here Sflis: The greatest battle In the world's history promises to end In the world's greatest military disaster. Even If Kouropatkifl succeeds In snatching half his host from the terrible ring of fire, how can Russia hope to send out another army to replenish his ranks. The sword Is being wrested from Russia's fumbling hands. Kouropat kin's disastrous defeat ought to mean the end of the war unless the czar's blindness Is Incurable and he waits for a further sledgehammer blow to fall, Inevitable as those of fate. The correspondent at Toklo of the Dally Telegraph says on official authority that fully 200,000 Russians are enveloped and he hears that Russia's central army Is almost annihilated. DEATH RECORD.

D., March 9. (Specials Leslie Dan Blerwugen of the Blerwagen Cattle company reports the loss on cattle last winter In that section at less than 1 per cent, and that the cattle are in the best of condition, unlike last spring, when they were barely able to move around when the snow disappeared. Foreman Ed Delahan at the Ash ranch, on the Moreau river, reports thut every thing in that section of the state has pulled through the winter In fine shape and that winter losses are not worth considering. Henry Ecovllle, In from Stearns, on White river, says the loss In that section will not be 1 per cent, as the cattle had good feed on the "prairie, all winter, and start the spring In good flesh. This ' condition, he reports, to be the prevailing one all the way In from his place. He reports, though, considerable loss on lower White river, where a number of cattle were started Into the winter In poor flesh, and in a section where feed was short; but that so far as he has learned that Is the only section of the whole range In which there has been any loss worth considering ss such.

The first sign of returning health Is increase of flesh, strength and vigor. This weakness, emaciation and lack of vitality simply means that certain substances, which go to make up the blood and nerves, have become ex hausted; and to renew flesh, musclo and strength, these substances must be restored. Dr. Chare's Blood and Nerve Food is composed of the same kind of substances that are lacking in the impoverished blood and nerves when in poor health, and abundant In the rich juices that flow through the system when in perfect health. If peo ple would take this food occasionally when in health to keep jthelr blood and nerves in good condition, many spells of sickness and wasting disease would be prevented. It makes sick people rail, puts solid flesh and mus cle on thin people, gives strength to weak people, restores the lost vitality to nervous people, imparts the tint of health to pale and sallow people. It adds years to life and puts life into years. Price 50 cents. Book free. Sold and guaranteed by Myers-Dll Ion Drng Co., Omaha, Neb. r at' a Cruiser Goes for present.

The all Important thing is to keep the stomach right, and to do this it Is not necessary to diet or to follow a set rule or bill of fare. Such, pampering simply makes a capricious appetite and a feeling that certain fuvorlte articles of food must be avoided. Prof. Welchold gives pretty good advice on this subjoct; he says: "I am 8 years old and have never had a serious illness, and at tho same time my life has been largely an indoor one, but I early discov ered that the way to keep healthy was to keep a healthy stomach, not by eating bran crackers or dieting of any sort; on the con trary I always eat what my appetite craves, but dally for the post eight years I have made it a practice to take one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after each meal and I attribute my robust health for a man of my age to the regular daily use of Stuart's Tablets. My physician first advised me to use them because he said they were perfectly harmless and wtre not a secret patent medlolne, but contained only the natural digestive, peptones and diastase, and after using them a lew weens i nave never ceased to thank him for his advice. 1 honestly believe the habit of taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals is the real health habit, because their use brings health to the sick and ailing and preserves health to the well nnd strong." Men and women past fifty years of age need a safe digestive after meals to In sure a perfect digestion and to ward off disease, and the safest, best known and most widely used lsx Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. They are found In every well regulated household from Maine to California and In Great lirttaln and Australia are rapidly pushing their way Into popular favor. All druggists soil Stuart's Dyspeimia Tab. lets, full s!ks packages at 50 cents, and for a weak stomach a fifty cent package will often do fifty dollars' worth of good.
