Nebraska FEE SPLITTING HAS SHAVE IN SENATE Effort to Make Law Affecting Doctors More Stringent Endangers Act. ALBERT EXPRESSES VIEWS (From staff Correspondent.) Lincoln, March 9. (Special.) For not being satisfied with the present law imposing penaltica on doctors who split fees with those whom they call into consultation, Representative Stuhr came near losing not only his amendment but the entire statute gov erning this situation, in. the senate todav. At it was, the original statute was saved by a olose vote against an amendment by Senator (Dr.) Joty of Seward, changing House Roll No. 69 into a law repealing the old statute. The house roll so changed tne statute that it put the fine on the doctor who paid the fee, relieving the one who received it Under this ar rangement tt was argued that it would be impossible to secure evidence, now out of the question to get, when both doctors are made guilty parties. Speaking for Senator Doty's amend ment, Senator Albert of Platte de clared that he saw no harm in doc tors splitting fees if they so desired. He declared that lawyers did it, and . it was not dishonorable. To the merriment of the upper chamber, Robertson of Holt forth with tent up a substitute amendment replacing the word "doctors" in the bill with the word "lawyers." Senator Chappell of Minden, chair man of the committee of the whole, ruled the substitute out of order. Doty's amendment lost by a nar row margin, and the vote to indefi nitely postpone carried, with the ex pression of fear that the present law would tufler if any more tampering was attempted.

ATTACKING JURY PANEL Lincoln, Neb., March 9. Followers of legal history displayed unusual in terest here today in the hearing of Arthur J. Koenigstein, former county attorney of Madison county, who was convicted on bribery charges and is making an appeal for a new trial. Koenigstein, who is now on bond, was found guilty by a jury in Norfolk October 3, 1915, of having, for four successive months, beginning Septem ber 30, 1914, while county attorney, accepted $75 from Nannie Myers, an alleged resort keeper. The total was alleged in this case to be $300. In addition to the penitentiary sen tence, the court found that he should pay the costs of the criminal suit, which amounted to $396.65. The defense in the appeal is vigor ously attacking a special jury panel which was drawn expressly for the trial of Koenigstein on the charge of which he was convicted. A regular panel had acquitted the former county attorney on a similar charge, involving Fern McDonald, an other alleger resort keeper. The same witnesses and the same evidence had been used in the Myers' prosecution, following immediately afterward, which resulted in a conviction. The defense is seeking to establish error for the reason that the judge sitting in the case, .vhich admitted the same evidence as in the trial on the McDonald charge, refused to ad mit as evidence the jury acquittal. Assistant Attorney General C. S. Roe is handling the appeal for the state.
