MATTER DISCUSSED BY
TEN MILLIONS FOR THE WORK
National Chief Executive Will Ask for
This Sum to Complete the
Spokane, Wash. President Taft
delivered here Tuesday his long-anticipated
speech on tho conservation of
natural resources and outlined the
policy of his administration on this
subject of supreme Importance to all
Ho broadly took the stand that
while the present administration Is
pledged to follow out the policies of
Mr. Roosevelt, such a pledge does not
Involve him In any obligation to carry
out those policies without congres
sional authorization. Tho president
added, however, that ho would take
every step and exert every Influence
upon congress to enact legislation
which shall best subserve tho pur
poses and requirements of the situa
tion. President Taft created much enthu
siasm when ho announced that ho
would urge upon congress tho neces
sity of authorizing the secretary of
the interior to Issue $10,000,000 bonds
for tho completion of Irrigation pro
jects in the west upon which work
lias been suspended because of lack
of funds and the discovery thnt the
projectors, in their enthusiasm, did
not closely observe tho limitations of
tho reclamation act. Hardships have
been, worked upon many settlers
through the suspension of work and
Senator Borah of Idaho and other
western senators and representatives
have urged upon the president that

of the sales of public lands, but added
that ho has been Impressed during his

It was here in Spokane a little while
ago that the National Irrigation con
gress met and the Ilalllnger-Pinchot
controversy arose. This controversy
was fostered by the friends and ad
herents of the two officials, but not by
the officials themselves.
Secretary Balltnger was criticized
by Former Governor Pardee of Cali
fornia nnd others In the congress for
having recommended and secured the
reopening for entry of lands contain
ing water power sites which havo been
withdrawn by Mr. Roosevelt. It was
asserted that a "water power trust"
had been formed to take up all of
these lands and that the strong con
servation policy begun by Mr. Plnchot.
with the support of Mr. Roosevelt,
had practically been abandoned.
President Taft gave credit both to
Mr. Plnchot nnd Mr. Pallinger. He
referred to the wonderful work of Mr.
Pinchot, and said that whilo that work
had brought denunciation at first, it
was now generally realized that tho
reforms inaugurated by Mr. Pinchot
were not only necessary, but should
have been begun ten years ago.

LAW IS HELD VALID
Decision in Sibley Case by the Su
ACT REDUCES EXPRESS RATES
Defendant Companies May Apply to
State Railway Commission If
The supreme court upheld the fon
stitutlonality of tho Sibley law, which
reduces rates on express business 25
per cent below the rates in force
prior to January 1, 1907, the year the
act was passed. The litigation was
commenced by Attorney Thompson,
who obtained a temporary restraining
order to prevent the express compa
nies from Tiolatlng the law. This
order Is now made permanent by the
opinion of the supreme court, written
by Judge J. D. Barnes. Chief Justice
Reese and Judge W. B. Rose did not
sit In tho case. By the order of the
supremo court the defendant com
panies may apply to the state railway
commission If they are still dissatis
fied with tho rates prescribed by the
Tho defendant express companies
fought the case from the start and
once transferred it to the federal
court, but the Judges of the federal
court In Nebraska remanded It to the
supremo court. Testimony was taken
in New York city and at other places
before a referee, Judge John J. Sul
livan. Tho syllabus of the opinion is
Holding of the Court.
"Statutes fixing maximum rates
which corporations, Joint stock com
panies or persons whose property Is
devoted to public use, may charge
and receive as compensation for their
services, are presumed to be constitu
tional; and the burden of proof Is on
him who challenges their validity to
show by a preponderance of the evi
dence that the legislation complained
of clearly contravenes some provision
of the constitution.
"When an attempt Is made to
strike down a rate statute it is In
cumbent on the attacking party to
make full, fair and complete disclos
ure of all of the revenue derived from
the business and the disbursement of
the same for all purposes, including
salaries paid to all of its officers,
agents and employes, so that it may
be determined whether such salaries
and expenditures aro necessary as
well as reasonable in amount.
"When the courts are called upon
to adjudgo an act for the legislature
fixing rates for express companies un
constitutional on the ground that they
aro unreasonable and confiscatory,
they should be fully advised as to
what is done with the receipts and
earnings of the company, for If so
advised it might clearly appear that a
prudent and honest management
within the rates prescribed would se
cure to the company a reasonable
compensation for the use of its prop
erty and for conducting Its business.
"A court of equity ought not to in
terfere with and strike down an act
nf tho legislature fixing maximum ex
press rates before a fair trial has
been made of continuing the business
thereunder and in advances of any
actual experience of the practical re
sult of such rates.
"Where It reasonably appears from
a consideration of all the evidence
that tho rates complained of are not
confiscatory, but afford the express
company at least some measure of
profit for carrying on its business, the
courts will not Interfere with the
operation of the statute, but will re
quire the party complaining to apply
for relief to the rate-making power,
or the tribunal provided by the
statute with power to increaso such
rates if they are alleged to be un
reasonable. "A rate statute will not be declared
unconstitutional on the ground that
It provides drastic penalties for iU
violation, unless it appears that the
penalty clause was the Inducement
for its passage, and with that clause
eliminated the remainder of the a t

Preparation for the Meeting In
The Stato Teachers' Association
meets in Lincoln on the 3rd, 4th and
5th of November 1909.
Last year's splendid attendance
demonstrated the wisdom of fixing an
earlier date than the winter holidays
ind a date when all teachers, school
officers, and patrons are most inter
ested in education. The Association
Is not a holiday celebration it is a
meeting of earnest men and women
for mutual help and Inspiration In the
work of making Nebraska's public
schools the most sffective In the
Tho executive committee, the local
committee, and the Lincoln Commer
:Ial Club have given the most careful
attention to every detail of program
and local entertainment required for
ten thousand people.
A splendid program cannot benefit
those schools whose officers and teach
ers are not in attendance.
Where school boards have not al
ready granted their teachers the three
days on regular pay, the superintend
ent of the town and city school, and
the teacher of the country school,
should place the matter before the
board and give positive assurance that
the time asked will bo devoted to im
proving the work of the school.
If necessary dismiss school and
make up the time later.

The Case of Thos. Majors.
The right of Thomas Majors to hold
position on the new state normal
board was argued before the supremo
ourt. C. S. Allen appeared for Ma-
ors and in defense of the act, while
Attorney General Thompson attacked
he new law.
The argument was not different
than that previously presented in
briefs. Mr. Allen defended the valid
ity of the act as passed by tho last
legislature and upheld Majors' right
to a position on the board on the
grounds that he was not a beneficiary
under the act directly, Inasmuch as
the appointment of the normal board
was changed only, the governor being
given the appointment and no other
material change being made. The
legal side of the matter was taken up
especially In connection with the man
ner In which the attack on the law
was made. It is alleged that the act
was unconstitutional and that Majors
was holding an office in violation of
the law. It was argued that If the
law was unconstitutional that there
would be no second cause of the ac
tion. The attorney general attacked Mr.
Majors' appointment on the ground
that be was a beneficiary of the legis
lature which passed the act - Other
wise he followed the line of attack
previously laid down in his brief.

before placing the name on the offi

in Saunders county.

The Union Pacific has again ap

After finding his caso carried away
to the federal court the first time

THE MIDWEST LIFE.
It costs for life insurance just as
It does for other things, for groceries
or clothing. Because a man is not
dead at the end of the first, third o
tenth year does not signify that the
company is ahead the premiums paid
It. Some have died during these years
and it has taken a part of the pre
miums paid by those still living to
pay the death claims. No one who
dies in the first few years his policy
is in force has paid the company any
thing like the amount it pays his
beneficiaries. That will be apparent
to all on reflection. Life insurance
companies are great equalizers. They
collect small sums from many and pay
large sums to the beneficiaries of th
dead, or to tho policyholders them
selves In case of endowment policies.
