Nebraska Nebraska L Nebraska Nebraska BRYAN AND TIME IN RACE JVonititutional Amendment Mnst Be Advertised Three Weeki. OUTLOOK BRIGHTER EVERY DAY Mar D Necrrsaary to Do As la Done la Oregon nnd lame m "First AM to Volr," (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, June 13. (Special.) Only forty-six day remain In which Mr. Bryan ha to line up his democratic members of ' the legislature In extra session and secure the submJsHlon of the Initiative and referendum. Ho the groat democratic marathon has developed Into a raco be tween Bryan and time. In order for the proposed constitutional amendment to be submitted to the people at the election this fall, It Is necessary that It be ad vertised for three calendar months before election, consequently the amendment . lmist ba published by August 1. But there Is no feeling of discourage ment around the Commoner office over the ' evident backwardness of the legislators In Coming forward and signing up. Mr. Bryan Is said to feel very much pleased with the situation at this time and he has been quoted as saying the "outlook gets . brighter every day." When he was told this yesterday Mr. Hitchcock expressed great surprise that the matter was even being considered and lie remarked: "Doesn't the Matute of limitation ever run against that extra session?" But even If Mr. Bryan should whip the legislators In line and force the extra session there Is no guaranty that the bill would be passed by August 1. Oovernor Ehallenberger Is not In favor of sub mitting tq tha voters In one election thirty or forty proposed laws such as It has been reported to him Is the case In Oregon. The governor Is In favor of the Initiative and referendum, but he desires the subjects which can ba submitted under the law limited. The governor probably will say something on this subject at the Central City banquet tomorrow night. OregonInltla.tlve Law Unlimited. Lieutenant Governor Fitzgerald of Colo rado la not very favorably impressed with tne Oregon Initiative tnd referendum law as the one great remedy,' for the salvation of the nation. Mr. Fitzgerald said while In Lincoln yesterday that at this time there Is being referred to the people forty pro posed statutes that will be voted on at the next election. According to the Colorado rran the proposed laws are so complicated and so numerous that It hos been found necsaiy to issue a ilttle pocket edition of a book known as the "First Aid to Voters." In this book the various laws are explained so that voters may study up on what they are to vote on. These are be ing distributed ,he said, over the state and it is the general belief that 75 per cent of them are thrown in the waste basket without the person receiving it giving It a thought. The Initiative and referendum law In Oregon, he said. Is not limited, but any ordinary question can be submitted to the voters. A Real Pioneer.

Hey burn Makes Target of Late Chief Forester Idaho Senator defers to Former Of ficial as Apostle of Fallacy, Theory and Ignorance. WASHINGTON, June 15.-When the sen ate today resumed consideration of the public land withdrawal bill Mr. Heyburn declared the proposition to withdraw the public lands for so-called conservation to be "a political Impertinence on the part of the people of the east." He said that In the great falls of the Potomac there was "enough water power to move every wheel In tho District of Columbia." Conservation should begin at home, he said, and he advised the national govern ment to give its attention to the water power possibilities nearer tha centers of population where they would ba made available, "And now comes this apostle of fallacy, theory and Ignorance, the ex-forester of the United States, who is reported to be opposing this exception," he added. Senator Hughes of Colorado declared that the present tendency was towards a feudal system, "like that which had disgraced Ireland and made progress in Germany impossible."

Magnificent because few of them have not been used to any extent. They were received in exchange from people who purchased pianos and piano players from our great Smith & Nixon, Richmond and. Piano Player stock. Quite a number of these pianos came in exchange for players because of their inability to play a piano, therefore some of them are almost new. We also have a large number of pianos that came in from rent, little used. These pianos have gone through our factory and are almost new, and now on our floor and we must have the room. THEY MUST AND WILL BE SOLD AT ONCE. The usual low price made, marked plain on each one, removes all doubt on that score. This is no BIG SALE. It lasts only the time necessary to dispose of these pianos for semi-annual inventory, but shrewd and economical buyers will find this the real piano opportunity of the season. Don't fail to call and investigate at least. yz A Partial List of Our Low Prices: $350 Vose & Son . cjqq $150 Guild Christ Co 3n $450 J. & 0.
