Electric Interurban to .Put

Omaha, Neb., Oct. ' (Special)—
An unusual experiment In inter
urban transportation is to be tried
out here for the next six months.
The Omaha St Lincoln company op
erates a line from Omaha to Pap
ilion through the village of Ralston.
The more frequent service has been
between Omaha and Ralston. A
little while ago two enterprising
Omahans put two busses in operation
between the city and the village, and
by running them Just ahead of the
street ear schedule, took most of
its passengers away. The railway

Nebraska Rail Commission
Orders “Feed in Transit”
Walthlll, Neb., Oct. - (Special)—
The stock men of normeast Nebraska
along the C. St. P. M. & O. railroad
have been trying for a long time to
get a feed in transit rate privilege
and freight rates accordingly. A
feed in transit privilege gives the
farmer the advantage of buying
feeder cattle on the range and have
them shipped to his local station and
fed on his farm for a period of
months and then shipped to the mar
ket for one freight rate the same ac
though they had been shipped from
the range to the terminal market.
In most instances this is a saving
of the entire freight from the feed
ing point to the terminal market
and means the saving of thousands
of dollars in freight rates for the far
mers of Thurston county alone.
In August the Thurston County
Farm Bureau began working on
this problem and Mr. Winter, the
county agent, filed a complaint
before the railways to show cause
on or before October 3, why a
feed in transit rate" should not
be put in force. The hearing was
held and Mr. Winter attended and
with the help of C. B. Steward, sec
retary of the Nebraska Farm Bureau
Federation, the case was presented.
The railway company was repre
sented by its attorneys and Mr. Win
ter and Mr. Steward fought the case
for the farmers alone.
The Nebraska Railway Commission
made it findings and sent out its
order Saturday, deciding the case in
favor of the farm bureau and against
the railroad companies. The rail
roads are now being compelled to
furnish ‘‘feed in transit” rates at all
points along the C. St. P. M. & O.
in northeastern Nebraska. Any stock
men wishing to take advantage of
these rates should immediately make
application to the railway company
through their local agent and if rates
are not granted, apply to the farm

Interstate Commerce Commission
Would Go Slow on Merging Railroads
From the New York Times
T^ie merging of all the railway systems at once, according to
the tentative plans of the Interstate Commerce Commission, is.
theoretically desirable but economically and practically difficult
There are many clashing interests to be reconciled. More pro
gress can be made taking shorter steps at the beginning, when- .
ever the commission holds any proposed consolidation to be in>
the public interest. For that purpose the Transportation act can
cels all “State or Federal” prohibitions in the nature of anti
trust laws or otherwise. Sfate laws are more favorable than
Federal. In several states minorities cannot indefinitely oppose
consolidations approved by majority interests. In New York and
New Jersey the majority required to bring the minority into
agreement is two-thirds.
Probably the Interstate Commission would welcome private
agreement for consolidation in the public interest. The recep
tion of the Erie-Nickel Plate merger was so cordial that it has.
been followed by a proposal of the consolidation of the Eastern
trunk lines into four systems instead of the nine suggested by the
Interstate Commission. If these rivals can compromise, they
might either divide up the New England roads or the latter
might be erected into a sort of universal terminal acceptable to
all, and facilitating access to coal consuming territory from coal
producing territory. The special interests of this city would be
cared for by the proposal that the Baltimore & Ohio should have
j the New Jersey Central, but that the New York Central should
have compensatory trackage rights. That would also meet the
port Authority’s objection to the development of individual
terminal properties instead of a terminal available to all. Con
solidation by agreement is the best solution of the dilemma cre
ated by the law substituting consolidation by force for the laws
making consolidation conspiracy in restraint of trade.

We scatter seeds with careless hand,
And dream we ne'er shall see them
But for a thousand years

We count them ever past;
But they shall last—

From the Wichita Eagle.
Among the pieces of heavy artil
lery recently unlimbered on the big
front, which is the north central
states, was Secretary of State Hughes
who hadn’t figured very much in
the previous fighting. He made a
big speech at Indianapolis. There
was an interesting twist to this
speech. He began by saying that
the campaign had reduced itself to
a battle between Coolidge and La
Follette and that the real issue wai
Coolidge or Brvan. That was strict
ly according to the rules and reguia- I
tions laid down for republican
speakers at headquarters. Hughes
lasted on this tack about one-third
of the way. At least two-thirds of
his address was devoted entirely to
Davis. He went after Davis very
thoroughly. He forgot about the real
issue, as emphasized in the begin
ning, until the final paragraph when
he wound up by saying that after ad
it was Coolidge vs. La Foliette. Or
rather he didn’t forget at all. Hughes
is no amateur campaigner. Hughes
knew very well that the democratic
drive in the north central states
couldn’t be dismissed with a non
chalant wave of tfe'i hand. Hughe*
knew that every sign points to a
terrific battle in Indiana. He is al
together too smalt a campaigner and
too ab.i a speaker to think ho could
cut any ice by simply ignoring the
Davis bid for votes. It can’t he done
there. It will take a lot of real
bounding to beat Davis in this region,
if it can be done at all, and Hughes
knew it when he spent two-thirds of
his time talking about Davis, not
Coolidge vs. La Follette.

there is Hie question of dress. It ap

man governor to wear undertaker
clothes and a half-gallon hat. But
how about a lady governor? Here is
something for Poiret to put his mincl
on. He should design a nifty model

else the demand may seriously de
