Lincoln, Neb., March 19. In a let ter to Governor Neville, Senator Norris of Nebraska, who was one of the twelve senators to stand out against the proposed law, permitting the president to establish armed neu trality, requests a special recall elec tion, to determine whether the people approve his attitude. If the majority so wills, he says he will resign. Senator Norris' letter is in part as follows: "On account of my opposition in the senate to some of the legislation de manded by the president, which in substance, abdicated the constitutional prerogative of congress to declare war, and gave this power to the presi dent, I have been severely denounced and criticized not only in Nebraska, but all over the country. These charges have been published and re published by the newspapers of the country with a venom and a unanimity which show a gigantic combination to conceal from the people of the United States the real issue involved, and to push our country into the vortex of the terrible and senseless war now be ing waged in Europe. It is charged not only that I am a traitor to my country, but that I do not represent the people of Nebraska, from whom I hold my commission as a member of the United States senate. Asks Special Election. "I have no desire to represent the people of Nebraska ' either in the United States senate or elsewhere if my official conduct is contrary to their wishes, and if I am misrepresenting them, the remedy is a recall. Under the constitution of the United States, the legislature of Nebraska is pow erless to enact a law that would en able the people of the state to recall a united states senator, i am, nowever, willing to waive this technicality and whatever rights I may possess in this respect under the constitution. I suggest, therefore, that you ask the legislature of Nebraska, now in ses sion, to pass a law providing for a special election at which the question of my recall can be submitted to the people of the state. If such an elec tion ii held, not later than May 1, 1917, under a law that will properly provide for the punishment of illegal voting. I agree to abide by the result and if the verdict is against me, I will at once place in your hands my restg' nation as a member of the United States senate from the state of Nebraska." Governor Neville said tonight that he did not think such a special elec tion would be advisable. Not only was there no demand for such an election. he said, but it would be a needless expense of money. Washington. March 19. Senator Norris of Nebraska made public to night a letter he wrote yesterday to Governor Neville of Nebraska asking that the state legislature pass a law providing for a referendum on whether the senator should be re called. He promised, if the verdict went against him in such an election held before May 1 under a law to punish illegal voting, to hand the gov ernor Mis resignation. In a statement the senator indicated within a few days, he expected to go to Nebraska to accept some of the numerous invitations that have reach ed him to discuss the subject before Nebraska audiences.
