Lincoln, Jan. 5. An effort to pro
vent Peter Mortenseu from making
a claim for the office of state railway
commissioner, for which he was the
only candidate, was Instituted In the
Joint session of the legislature when
both houses conferred together upon
the canvass of votes for state offices
Debate and parliamentary Jockeying
look up considerable time before any
thing could be done and a motion was
presented ly Seuator Tibbets provid

offices with the exception of railway
Furse, the present Incumbent, was
appointed by Governor Shallenberger
on the death of Commissioner Cowgill
twenty-five days before election, and
Mortcnsen wa3 the only candidate to
Mo for the place. He received 79,088
votes and no other candidate re
Furse holds on to the office, how
over, as an appointee, and the Repub
licans want to oust him.
Mortcnson'8 vote was finally read by
Speaker Kuhl when he read tho votes
of the other candidates. But he speci
fied that Mortenseu had merely re
ceived the highest number of votes
and was not for that reason elected.
Mortonsen Is considering a mandamus
against the speaker and will probably
fllo it to compel the legislature to de
clare him elected.
The canvass of votes on Wait and

confirming the election of Wait with
a margin of ninety-two over his Demo

The govemmeut was the prosecutor.
the charge being that the railroad
remitted damage charges on freight
cars used by the steel company. Tht
defendants say they will appeal.
The defendant companies were tried
on a large number of .lndietmenu
charging offenses against the Inter
state commerce laws and had the max
iuium penalty been imposed the Beth
lehom Steel company would have been
obliged to pay a fine of $3,200,000, th(
Lehigh Valley Railroad company $2,
500,000 and the Reading railroad $1,
740.000. The Jury in rendering its ver
diet, however, made a recommenda

In their defense the companies
claimed that because of congestion at
the works of the Bethlehem Steel com
pany, where Improvements were being
made, they were unable to move
freight cars and that no crime had
been committed when demurrage
charges had been remitted.
