Messhers Change Their Totes. '
The roll call on the bill had not pro
ceeded far before it was apparent that
the bll would pass and that If necessary
enough vote would b secured by
changes 'to Insure Its passage with the
emergency clause. The wot showed fifty-
four for the bill In Its amended form and
forty-two against
Cronln of Holt started the changing
with a speech that Indicated that other
would follow. He aald that while opnoeed
to the bill, still a It appeared that an
nexation would oome anyway, he believed
that the only thing to do waa to place
the emergency clause on and give the
people of the entire territory a chance to
participate In the election. . ,
Changes came thick and faat and In a
short time .enough shifts were reported
to make the vote seventy-two for tbe bill
to twenty-five against with three mem
bers mlsalng. "
Several explanation were made, one
by Hynek of Saline bringing down the
house. It was) a follow:

of Turkev sees a nice woman ha slmnly
annexes her Into his fsmtly. That Is Just
what Omaha la doing with Pouth Omnha,
and says, "Come en, you nice little
things. I wsnt you. What do you little
thlnics think about It? I know you are
verv much opposed to It as It Is undemo
cratic snd against home rule; tnererore
I vote "no."
Meara of Wayne said that he had al
ways been In favor of forcible annexa
tion and a this amendment meant the
tame thing he would azote "yet."
' ' tiraaln Marriages,
. Cronln referred to th epsstage ot the
bill a "a maniag that has been per
formed without th bride' consent," and
said that Inasmuch as th ceremony had
been performed over hi protest ha would
help to make the emergency clause so
that th bride might have om voloa In
(ha management of th household.
Jersy Howard, who live at South
Omaha, voted for th bill and aald he did
so "for th ' benefit' -of th .oppressed
laboring class. In South Omaha, who are
treated Ilka aarfg."- V v " -
Meara, In easting his vote for th bill,
said h did not ' pretend, that he was
voting for horn rule, but ha wanted
everybody-!t now that he understood
he was voting for forcible annexation.
Wood hurst asserted that "he was for a
Greater Omaha aad he ant)dj to see the
lime "when Lincoln will be a suburb of
Omaha." :
Among the Douglas county delegation
eleven of the twelve member. voted for-
annxatlon. and- Barrett, the only on
holding -out against it changed his vote
In order. to add the emergency clause,
saying: .
'Believing that each city or village
hould by a majority vote ot such city
o village affected determine sunk local
and domestic duestlon as this, 'and as
title bill a amended does' not contain
this provision, I therefor,: vera no.v ' .'
' tieta lata, Bead Wacroa.
. TVhen1 the changes were madu Barrett
ent up th efollowing:
Inasmuch as this bill has received fifty
five votes and that consolidation must
take place. 1 feel that It is my duty to
give the people of the annexed territory
the. rtuht to participate In the comiug
municipal election of the greater city, I
therefore change my vote from no to aye,
so that the bill may pas with the
emergency cleuse.
Palmer of Iouga county who opposed
the bill In commute of the whole, said
he had had a hard time to deride what
he should do. Living In Dundee, but
representing the whole Douglas county
and believing that a majority of the
house wa committed to annexation, he
said be would make the beat of a bad
situation by voting "ay."

Palmer aot the amendment Ther was
no reply to this question.
Mr. Trumble denounced Palmer
amendment a a subterfuge. IJe said It
would not hind the water board to pur
chase the plant If the appraisers had fixed
the price.
Power Now Vested.
II railed attention to the fact that the
Omaha city commission now haa power
to regulate th crates of the electric light
Company.-. If a bill were brought In to
cut th rates square In the middle Trum-
blo said h would support It, but he did
not favor auch bill a this one, which
give the company no protection what
ever. He asserted that the electric light
plant at Omaha paid lea than 10 per cent
on Its aesesaed valuation last year.
"t hv served two term In the legisla
ture and I never took the floor In behalf
of the corporation," said Mr. Trumble.
f'l never met any representative' of the
Omaha Ulectrlo Light company until It
attorney appeared before my committee.
I have not received any telegrams asking
m to aupport or oppos this bill.
Opposes Coaf IscaUloa.
i "I. am her to protect man' property
against confiscation, t ara not la favor
of a law giving lh Omaha Water board
control over. thle. matter, because nobody
regulate th .Water board, fwould favor
a bill to condemn and take over the light
ing il ant "but tbls Is not a municipal
ownership proposition. It I simply munic
ipal confiscation by the Water board."
Mr. Druesedow, supporting th bill, said
th Water board members were subject
to recall and In view of the faot that
Howell was beaten by 4,008 ovtes In
Douglas county- last tall lit his rac for
governor,' Druesedow did not think there
wa much foroa In th talk about build
ing up a political - machln to control
Douglas countv eleotions. '
' ' Mockett. tor the Dill.
A speech for, the bill was made by Mr.
Mockett, who aald that Lincoln' experi
ence In operating a light plant In connec
tion with its water system had been suc
cessful. It charged that the corporation
run Omaha and goutti Omaha by working
together. Mockett admitted that he did
not believe tn municipal competition with
a private utility, except a a last resort
He thought auch ft business ss furnishing
electrlo light In ft community should be ft
monopoly. " ( '

board were auoted bv Mockett to show

It would be tn Lincoln, but Mr. Trumbl
of th Town
called attention to the fact that this was
at the home of Senator Saunders, the in
troducer of senate file , who had eighty
lights In his house, necessitating extra
alirng to carry the load.
Haater Opposes.
Mr. Hunter took the floor against th
bill and showed that the city of Omaha
now haa full power to fix rates for eleo-
trio light, to puritfiase the plant or ' to
build a competing one, as It may see fit
If th crtjr commission refuses to act
said Hunter, the people themselves can
Initiate an ordinance for any of these
things. He did not believe In extending
the power of the Water board, claiming
that this simply contributed to building
up a political machine.
"Isn't the power la the hands of tbe
people of the water district?" asked
IJlmer. ,
'City Caanatlaaloa gheald Rale.
"No, It hasn't been by any mean," re
I lied Hunter. "All th people do I to
elect th board members for six year.
The Water board is continually on bad
terms with the Omaha city official. If
you'll take the control away from the
Water board and vest it In the city com
mission. I'll support the bill."
Mr. Chamber while speaking for the
bill wa Interrupted by Mr. Trumbl with
this queatlon:
