after four days of tempestuous de

original sum, and Includes the $25,000
traveling expenses for the president.
The session began calm enough, but
as the day wore on the members got
Into a more or less surly mood, and
this led to a succession of objections
to amendments and to almost every
one of the remaining paragraphs,
some of which were sustained.
After denying the usual extra
month's pay to officers and employes
of the capltol, the house threw out
of the bill the allowance for extra
work to committee stenographers and
then turned In and refused to carry
out a mandate of the United States
supreme court for the payment to J.
M. Ceballos & Co. of New York of
$205,014. Finally tho democrats, led
by Mr. Rowers (Miss.), sought to de

BRIEF8 RECEIVED FROM, JUDGE
ALBERT AND C. O. WHEEOON.
TWO QUESTIONS DISCUSSED
Primary Object of the New Law li
Not to Protect Depositors, But
to Prevent Panics.
The legal department of the state
has received briefs from Judge I. L.
Albert, who, with C. O. Whedon, is de
fending the recently enacted banking
law, which temporarily baa been en
loined by the federal court.
Judge Albert discusses two que
tlons only In his brief the right of
the state to limit the banking busi
ness to corporations, and the right of
the state to cause the payment of a
levy for the creation of a fund to pay
obligations of the banks to their de
positors. In discussing the latter point, Judge
Albert says the primary object of the
law is not to protect depositors, but
to avert panics, by some guaranty to
depositors that their money Is safe.
The fact that depositors are Incident
ally benefited by the act does not. ren
der it void, the brief says. The pas
sage of tho banking act, he says, was
the result of the financial disturb
ances some months ago, and it has
for Its object the welfare of the pub
lic. The brief calls attention to the
enactment of a gunranty act In New
York In 1829 and in Vermont In 1831.
A search of the records fails to dis
close, tho brief says, an attack on the
constitutionality of these laws. !
In discussing the right of the state
to limit the banking business to cor
porations, Judge Albert said the issue
of notes and bills was a part of the
banking business under the common
law, and yet this had been regarded
as a franchise. This, he said, shows
that what Is called a common lav or
natural right may pass to a right that
may be enjoyed only by virtue .of a
A private bank, the brief says, goes
out of existence with the death of the
owner, while the corporation bank Is
exempt from the accidents of dlserse
In his conclusion Judge Albert said:
"Legislative acts are presumably
alld. They are not to be set aside
on light or trivial grounds. The act
may not have been conceived In wis
dom, but It Is easily traceable to a
desire to serve the public good. Its
wisdom or Its lack of It does not con
cern the court, so long as the legisla
ture acted within the limits of its
constitutional powers. It was de
signed to allay distrust of the banking
system at times when such distrust
spells panic and commercial disaster.
While It may not bo the best means
of serving the end, It cannot bo fairly
eald that It will not serve It In some
measure. It la the will of the people,
expressed by the supreme legislative
body of the state, and as such, comes
before the court attended by the pre
Bumptlon of validity."
Questions Railway Board's Power.
The Union Pacific Railroad company
has answered a complaint under the
Bartos telephono act by challenging
the Jurisdiction of the Btate railway
commission to act under paragraph 5
of the complaint of Representative
George Barrett, who complains that
the railroad company has failed to
provide telephone service In its de
pots at Gibbon and Shelton. Para
graph 5 of the complaint alleges that
the railroad company has failed to pay
the bill presented by the telephone
company for a phone at the station of
Shelton and that If the bill is not
paid the telephone company will dis
connect Its phone In the depot, and
thus deprive all of Its subscribers of
service, to the depot. The company
admits most of the allegations In the
Pardoned Convict a Guard.
Jacob Frahm, who was pardoned by
Gov. Shallenberger on July 4, after
having served fourteen years of a life
sentence, will not leave the prison.

and he now walks the east wall.
Fralyn did not care to leave the place
which had been his home for so long.
Will Ask for Rehearing.
Arthur Mullen, state oil Inspector,
who defended tho nonpartisan Judi
ciary act before the supreme court,
will file a motion for a rehearing of
the ense. Mr. Mullen Is not satisfied
with the decision of the court and is
anxiously looking for the opinion In

Dope Treatment Successful.
Warden Smith of the state peniten
tiary Is still treating his-dope patients
and he has had such success that one
batch which he has confined, taking
the treatment, has quit asking for the
poison. Every prisoner taking the
treatment, the warden said, seemed
anxious to quit the habit. The dope
fiends were separated from the other
convicts and gradually they are losing
their desire for morphine. When he
started treatment the warden found
one prisoner was using a dram of
morphine a dav.
CHANGE GRAIN RATE.
Becomes Effective On and After
On and after August 10 the Missouri
Pacific, Bjjrllngton, Union Pacific and
Northwestern railroads are authorized
by the state railway commission to
apply the wheat rate on all flour ship
ments in the state and the corn rates
on all shipments of mill stuff.
This order Is supplementary to a
recent order allowing the roads to
raise the rates on flour to a parity
with the wheat rate between about 10
per cent of tho mill stations in the
state and Omaha. These stations had
enjoyed for many years a low flour
rate, rates which were put in many
years ago to encourage local Industry.
This order followed on a complaint of
the Updike Milling company. As soon
as this order was filed it was found
that the Missouri Pacific had been left
out of the complaint. The commission
thereafter avoided a discrimination
by pulling the Crete-Omaha rate on
the Missouri Pacific up to the wheat
rate. The railroads then filed a peti
tion asking that other mill products
besides wheat flour be put on the
same basis ns corn, the general con
tentions being that the stations which
had the lower rates were not entitled
to discrimination as against 90 per
cent of the stations in the state and
that the finished product should, as a
general thing, take as high a freight
rate as the raw material from which
It Is made.
Several hearings have been held In
the cases. After referring In detail
to the reasons justifying the order on
flour rates the commission In the order
Issued says: "Mill stuff, which con
sists of bran and shorts, bears the
snme relation to corn as flour to
wheat. Both are more valuable than
corn and. If anything, more bulky, and
do not move In the same quantities.
The commission, for the reasons fully
set forth in the caso of the Updiko
Milling company vs. Union Pacific
Railroad company (formal No. CI), no
special reasons being developed to the
contrary, finds that the rates on flour
should not be less than the rates on
wheat, and that the rates on mill
stuff should not bo less than the rates
on corn between the stations herein
Senator T. J. Majors, appointed by
Gov. Shallcnberger to a place on tho
new state normal board, has filed a
demurrer to the petition of the attor
ney general challenging the right of
Majors to accept the appointment be;
cause he is a member of the legisla
ture. The demurrer alleges that the
amended petition of the attorney gen
eral does not Btato sufficient facts to
constitute a cause of nction and that
the two causes of nction are Improp
erly Joined in the lnforsiatior. The
validity of the new nw nuthorlzlnp,
the governor to appoint a new normal
board Is Involved In the' suit.
Old Sotdiers Are Safe.
Members of the Soldiers' Home nt
Grand Island, who have exposed the
management of that Institution, are
now getting fearful that they will be
removed from the home and not per
mitted to come back. A letter to this
effect was received by a member of
the Board of Public Lands and Build
ings. The board has assured tho old
soldiers that none of them will bo let
out for telling what la going on. The
board has supervision over admission
and discharges from the home, and
the superintendent Is powerless to act
In the matter.
For Historical Society.
The state historical society has re
celved a large framed portrait of Wil
Ham H. Russel of the old freighting
firm of Russel, Majors and Waddell
who were the most prominent freight
ers on the plains In the early pioneer
days. The portrait was the gift of
Charles R. Moorhead of El Paso, Tex.,
who was on the plains as a young man
and knew and worked for Mr. RusBel.
The Nebraska state historical society
has never had a portrait of Mr. Russel
and has been anxious to get one.
Prize Packages Under Ban.
Food Commissioner Mains will test
the pure food law, which provides that
there shall be no prizes In food pack
ages, by arresting .1. R. Burley. e

packages in which are library slips
which entitle the holder to books for
a certain number of slips.
