It Is probable the committee which makes the greatest record In Its work will be continued to' discover from the legal department of the state what has become of the suits brought by the rail roads to knock out the 2-cent fare law, the Aldrich 15 per cent freight reduction law and other laws of a similar kind enacted In 1907 'before the progressive bull moosers were on earth. According to the legal department the cases referred to are aln the federal court at this time. All the testimony has been taken in tho case of the Rock Island and part of the testimony has beet? taken in the Burlington-case.' The cases have not been submitted for the renaon there are similar coses . Rending in the United States supremo court from Missouri and Minnesota. The decision In these cases is being looked for every day. tinira Already In Force. According to the legal department Ne braska is not In a position to ask that the cases be hurried along, because, thanks j cases uo iuu tcu uiuuki ucvwojt vimimD to a legal department created before the bull moosers infested the country, the laws mentioned are all In effect In this state.

Wilson's Anti-Trust Bills Are Now Ready for His Signature TRENTON, N. J., Feb. lS.-Governor Wilson's seven antl-trnst bills this nftor noon passed the house In exactly the snine form as they passed the senate last week. Tho bills now go back to the sen ate, the body In which they originate.!, for formal transmission to the governor. Objections to the seven anti-trust bills fathered by Governot Wilson came to him from an unlooked for quarter today when a group of state labor leaders sug gested the possibility that the bills might be construed as affecting labor unions. They called tho governor's attention to the provision In one of tho bills which would prohibit "any combination or agreement between two or more cor porations, firms or persons to create re strictions in trade, to limit the produc tion or increase prices." Secretary .Henry F. J Hirers of the New Jersey Federation of Labor showed the governor a letter he had received froni President Gompers of the American Fed eration of Labor, advising an emphatic protest against the bills unless the fol. lowing amendment was Incorporated In ; the act In question: , i Nothing shall be SO COnntrnpri nr hnM ti . , &t$Zg'?0tStnk jcKMmie wages, nourn or moor, sanitary " umcr uunumuns 01 moor- The governor pointed out that tho a;t restricts "persons dealing In commodi ties." He said that the courts of New Jersey have consistently held that labor was not a commodity, tut there could be no application to labor questions. The governor told the labor leaders that the amendment suggested by Mr. Gompers wouhT invalidate all the seven anti-trust acts and would be held as class legislation.

Tho Hurnett Dillingham Immigration bill, vetoed by President Taft because It Imposed a liter acy test upon Immigrants, was passed over the president's veto In tho senato to day, 62 to 18. The overwhelming mnjorlty given at the end of n short debate In which President Taft's attitude was criti cised vigorously has strengthened the probability that the bill will be passed over the veto In the house when It is called up tomorrow. Support of the president's position was voiced In tho debato by but few speakers. Senators Lodge und Dillingham, leading the fight to override tho president, de clared the measure outlined so many im portant provisions for the exclusion of criminal, diseased nnd Insane aliens that 'grqnt harm would result to the United Stntds If It did not become law. "I fall to understand why It Is that the United States alone among nations Is not thought to have the right that all nations have to say who shall come within Its borders," said Senator Lodge. "It is tho only country In the world whero It Is argued that people born In other rountrles who never hnvc seen tho United Ktutes are entitled to certnln rights therein. Would Exercise IMkIiL "It Im for Iha rltlrona flf the United states to say who shnii come into their i country. That Is a primary right. Still less do I understand this extreme oppo sition to requiring that an Immigrant shall be able to read before he enters the United States. We do not allow a man to become n part of our body politic unless hn can rend and write his name. "We do not hesitate to apply a literary test to our own people. Why Is It we should .hesitate to apply It to a foreigner? "The opposition "to this test at bottom; Is, tUn mtitm opposition that !: made to every offort to Improve our Immigration laws or restrict In any degree the num ber of Immigrants. It comes from tha steamship companies. For twenty-five years wo have met that opposition at every turn, It .is here todny." "My reason for supporting the bill," said Senator Williams, "Is that I nm afraid of Ignorance. I am afraid of tho man who strikes oufbllndly to overcome the wrongs he thinks exist." Machine Gun is Stolen from the - American Troops EL PASO, Tex., Feb. 18. A machine gun of the Thirteenth cavalry, platoon nt Hachtta, N.
