APRIL TENTH MAY BE THE DAY Fanners Are Already Becoming Anxious to Return to Land And Get Their Grain In. , . IMPORTANT BILLS TO COKE UP (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. March 21. (Special.) The coming week of the legislature will determine at what time the. mem bers will be likely to pack up and go home. The end of the week will bring the session to that point where the members will begin to get anx ious. Thursday night will complete the constitutional sixty days for the house, while the senate will have three days longer in which to com plete its constitutional limit. April Tenth May According to some of the leaders . of the houae April 10 may be the day when the clock will be stopped and the longest day ot the session observed. Usually the clock Is atopped Just before the ex piration of the day and the bodies work on finishing up the work and waiting fpr the Inst bills to be engrossed and slimed. Then the final drop of the gavel la hearS and the thing Is oer. Should the legis lature run until the tenth, which Is two weeks from next Saturday, It may be Monday beforethe' real end comes. X Dnr Cam Tell About It. However, no one' can tell very much about It, for on account of the order of Speaker Jackson Issued that no vouchers will be made out until the end Is reached, there may be enough of the members form a combination to hustle things up a little. Already the lure of th"e oat field is drawing the farmer members, one farmer member being heard to say lat Thurs day that he ought to be home getting his 'oats in. When the call of the farm begins to be felt It generally spreads rapidly and should warm weather start in this week thore is no telling what may happen by Saturday night. Important Bills to Come I' p. There are some Important bills yet to be disposed of, the Omaha annexation bill has to go back to the senate for approval ot the Parrlott amendment at tached ' - the house, while the v Omaha water board lighting bill has yet to go up against final passage in the house and then go back to the senate. Then will come the anti-dlscrimlnatlon insurance bill. On top of these the ap propriation bills have got to run the gauntlet of the senate, and some of the appropriations will be changed. This will mean a return to the house and the prob able appointment of a conference com mittee by each body, and that will mean mure delay, so it the lure of the farm strikes the members they may be com pelled to forget It and stay to the end.
