THE BEE: OMAHA. WEDNESDAY, APKtii l, m.
Nebraska EXPECT DRY BILL TO BE PASSEDTHURSDAY Action of Senator Robertson Is Said to Insure Favorable Report FORSEE FIGHT IN HOUSE (From a Staff Correspondnit.) Lincoln, Neb., April 17.-r-(Specia1.) It is apparent that a prohibition bill will be passed by tomorrow at least. The action of Senator Robertson in cning over to the house committee this morning is said to insure a favor able report, while the two other mem bers of the senate committee have united on a minority report, though it is probable that 'the bill will be fa vorably considered by the upper botlv. The maiority report cuts out the words "all other liquor," the main bone of contention covered in section 1 of the bill, which the house com mittee contended would permit of the manufacture of near beer and leaves that section just as the house want ed it. . The only raw of sunligh for those who wanted a partially dry bill comes in that section which provides Hie amount a man may have in his own home. This is made a reasonable quantity, but it permits any free holder to cause a search of the prem ises of any individual -whom be may suspect of having liquor in his pos session for illfRal purposes, and if that liquor is discovered it is prima facia evidence that it is kept for ille gal use. The wto members of the senatorial conference committee, Mattes and Moriarty, criticise the action of the majority committee and its report and declare that the action of the house committee in trying to change the bill on a matter that was not in controversy was not in keeping with custom of the senate. They finally recommend that the senate recede in all its amendments to the house bill, which practically makes the bill as it was in its original form when it came to the senate.
