Mr. Lawrence Bruner
Early in January the executive committee of the Omaha Audubon Society drafted a bill providing against trap-shooting in our state and placed it in the hands of Mr. Warner of Lincoln. Hearing of a similar measure being presented by Mr. Loomis of Fremont we have withdrawn our bill and wish to aid Mr. Loomis in any way possible. The Omaha Human
[illegible] as well is interested and all feel that now is the time to act. We will send a delegation of strong men from Omaha to meet the committee to which the bill has been refferred. Dr. Geo. L. Miller, Alfred Millard, Rev. John Williams, Rev. N. M. Meier Dr. S. R. Towne and others are willing to go and do what they can. The Omaha Gun Club is very active against the bill and is working strenuously. It would be very agreeable to the Omaha people if
the meeting of the committee could be arranged for the week of Febr. 23rd Please let me know your and Mr. Loomis’ wishes and if you have any suggestions I shall be more than pleased to act upon them.
