Nebraska NO DRY ACTION BYSESS10ISAYS THE GOVERNOR Neville After Study of Situa tion Declares Lawmakers' Vote Would Be Useless; 1 " Bryan Has' Statement. '"'(From a Staff Correspondent.) Lincoln, March 25. (Specials Should the special session of the leg islature ratify the prohibition amend ment to the ccnsttiution of the United , States, it would have to be done all over again al the next regular ses sion, in the opinion of Governor Nev ille, who has spent much time looking over the constitution of other states , in an effort to discover if other states give authority to a special session. to enact legislation not specified in the ; call. The governor ha9 discovered that btit a few states giie that freedom to a special seiMon. One state gives the l governor power to incorporate needed 5 legislation i:i an after call issued after the first call has been made, while another state gives its legislature au thority upon a two-thirds vote of the , members. s What Constitution Says. ' The state cf Nebraska expresses it self in its constitution) along about the same fine as the most of the states, section 8 of article 5 of the constitution reading: "The governor may on extraqrdi ' nary occasions convene the lcgisla ' ture by proclamation, stating therein the purpose for which they arc con ; vened and the; legislature shall enter upon no business except that for which thev were called together." ThisV in the mind of the governor, clearly, established the rights ot tne legislature and that no legislation can be enacted -but that. specified in the Bryan's Position. ' Mr! Bryan, in his address in Lin coln, said that the legislature could ; take action on a ratification of 'the prohibition amendment, , basing his ; claim on th. fact that some state at t some time had elected a United States senator at a special session, ' ',: when the election had not been speci ' fied in the call. What state he re- ferred to is not known, i The contention is made that Mr. i Bryan is wrong for the reason that I the, ratification of an amendment to the national constitution and the elcc ' tien of a United States senato are , , two distinct and separate matters, and that the election of a senator to fill a vacancy is provided for in the federal I constitution and that when a vacancy t o.cccurs, the governor of the state ap ; points until the next session of the . legislature convenes and if that ses J sibn happens to be a special, session if is its dutv to elect someone to fill i ttje vacancy in states where the Kg is-' Uture elects1 the senator. , "' : " ' Federal Consltutlon. The constitution of the United ', States reads: " Article 1, Section 3: "iVIf.vvacancie!" happen by resignation , or otherwise, during the recess of the legislature, any state, the executive thereof may make temporary appoint 7 ments until the next meeting of the legislature, . which shall then fill such " vacancies. ; :,' " Members of the legislature so far who i have arrived appear to be in the t ' air tin the proposition whether the ' ratification ot the amendment can be ' legally taken up. Many of those who 5 favor its ratification are fearful that if an attempt is made to override the governor's call it will bring on a fight ' - which will have the same effect as in that of the last session tfiat real leg- ' islation twill have to suffer" because of feelings existing between mem- bers brought on by such a fight. i Not After Squabble. ' -v One of the most prominent mem- bers of the last session, James Auten of Boone, said today he has come to v Lincoln to do business and not to ' " squabble over differences of opinion. If the members want to get busy and , enact the legislation called for he will stay and help, but if they are going to go to scrapping, he will simply tell : them what he thinks of their action, ,: pack is grip and go home, where he ...has much more important work than talking.1 He -says talking won't get V his wheat and oats sowed or plow his land for corn, if it could he would have done his talking into a phono . graph anc left it to put in his crop. f The only thing to be gained by ' ratifying the change in the consti tution would be that as Mr. Bryan h said, "Nebraska would thus be one of .. the first states to recognize the pro .'inhibition amendment ' by legislative - action." This in the mind of many is not of sufficient importance to cause - he members who favor such action . :o take a slap at Governor Neville, when the next regular session can .. lust as well 'take care of the matter. Bryan's Statement ' W. J. Bryan tonight issued" i signed statement containing an argu ! ment for the ratification of the proni bition amendment. He devotes the "major portion of the statement to ? irgumerits why prohibition is bene . 'ficial. Then he devotes a few para t zraphs to an argument why the demo :? . cratic party should take a stand for fit Arr lata, 14 lui. u.jr ...... .v "In the ratification of the amend ment democratic leadership has been 5 'even more pronounced.

Third ens Superior Newly Says Acid Stomach Causes Indigestion Excess of hydrochloric cid sours the food and forms gases. Undigested food delayed in the stomach decays, or rather, ferments the same as food left in the open air, says a noted authority. He also tells us that indigestion is caused by Hyper-acidity, meaning, there is an excess of hydrochloric acid in the stomach which prevents complete di gestion and starts food fermentation. Thus everything eaten- sours in the stomach much like garbage sours in a can, forming acrid fluids and gases which inflate the stomach like a toy balloon. Then we feel a heavy, lumpy misery in the chest, we belch un gas, we eructate sour food or have heart burn, flatulence, water brash or nausea. He tells us to lay aside all diges tive aids and instead get from any pharmacy four ounces of Jad Salts and take a tablespoonful in a glass of water before breakfast and drink while it is effervescing, and further more, to continue this for a week. While relief follows the" first dose, it is important to neutralize the acid ity, remove the gas-making mass, start the liver, stimulate the kidneys and thus promote a free flow of pure digestive juices. Jad Salts is inexpensive and is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined w-ith lithia and sodium phosphate. This harmless salts is used by thousands of pec -le for stomach trouble with excellent results. Advertisement.
