lone and painstaking consideration f.v
months, will It was stated today In ml I- ,
tary circles, be an accomplished fact In
.the near future through a general order
putting Into effect the reorgatilratt.vi '
plans of Qeueral Leonard Wood, chief of
staff, nnd his advisers, that will be is- .
sued tomorrow. . !
"The contemplated leorganlzatlnn eon- ,

railroad centers for speedy movement In

Omaha's advantage," said S-eualor Brown, j

terest In the camnalgn that proposes that
justice be done his home city nnd that
both Koit O in nh n and Fort Ciook be
made von nioie Important centeis of mil
itary activity than at present.
General WSod when seen today cor
roborated Senator Brown's assertions
that Omaha would be very greatly fa
vored In the scheme of reorganization,
but tefused to particularize 41s to the
number of troops to be stationed at
Fort Omaha and Fort Ciook. General
Wood, however, does not lpok with favor
upon continuing Fort Ouuha as a signal
corps post, characterizing It as the home
of a "busted balloon," nnd an 'expensive

fn view, however, of his general state
ment that Forts Croo kand Omaha nre to
garrison more troops. It Is 'believed that
Fort Omaha will bo converted Into an In
fantry post, as Its original purjKise ln -
tended, and that Fort Crook will be
"i bcl'eve It In the. plan of General Wood
to make Omaha a brigade city," said
Senator Brown, "and to do that the en

LINCOLN. Neb.. Feb. 2. -(Spcclul )
Hodge of Dougtns will Introduce bills for
important legislation In tho senate the
first of the week. Ho Is going after the
lt doctor who gets his patients from
the country by splitting the fee with ,th
country practitioner. He Is also going
to try to put a stop to the Jail feeding
contract In Douglas county.
There Is crying need all over the coun
try to 7brce physicians to cease the
practice of maintaining a staff of coun
try doctors, whore, main tmslnrss Is to
send patients to the city doctor for opera
tions, receiving a portion of tho fee for
his interest In tho matter. That this
custom prevail there Is no doubt and to
such an extent that the slate Is very
much Interested in the legislation, It
Is said to prevail not only In Nebraska,
but lu other states and If Nebraska
tnkes the lead In protecting its sick frm
such methods, It Is tho belief that the
wave of reform will sweep over the
Ilctlrr Food In .lulls.
Senator Dodge Is also after better food
for tho Douglas county prisoners. He
Is satisfied that at 0 conts h day the
prisoners cannot get good, wholesome food
and there, bo enough money left over to
net the contractor good pay as at present.
Mr. Dodgo would have the county soni
mlssloncrs hire a steward nnd have the
counly do the feeding nnd thus prevent
any contract making money nt the ex-
pnnso of the prisoners. Kx-Wurden
Codtltng of the Knnsax penitentiary says
the quickest way to build up the diseased
mind of a prisoner Is to feed him good,
wholesonle food ami that cannot bn done
at less than 2 cents per day.
Senator N. 1'. Dodge will also Introduce

laturr will be asked to appropriate funds
for additional buildings and equipment
nt the soldier homes nt Mllford and Grand
Island. It has been said that opposition
to tho same will be made because It will
b hut a short time berore the member
ship nt these Institutions will begin to
decrease Iroui natural causes and that
no more expense to the -stnto should bo
made. According to statistical com
parison furnished by Genoral Culver, tlf
membership of these homes will Increase
for the next five years and that the de
mand will Increase for more room by
reason of thu fact that as the sick In
crease It will bo necessary to give each
a room by himself. The commanda.it
of the Grand Island home reports tint
thfiu 11 10 many applications on hand fir
admittance and no place for them to go,
About sixty of the veterans at tho latter
homes are roomed In an unsanitary top
floor of thr building, where lu case if
fire tho loss of life might be conside
able. Tho state architect has advised
that this itory bo renioved and another
built of a more modern type on top of
the second story.
At Mllford about the same conditions
exlrt, about thirty of the Inmates sleep
ing on cots In thn nttlc which makes it
dangerous In case ot lire. It Is said that
the health conditions at the Mllford home
sra considerably better than nt thu
'Grand Island home.
The government pays Into tho state
fund' for tho support of all veterans In
the homes JIM per annum, which con
tribute considerably tu the expense of
running tho Jnstltut'ons.
