Journal sent In his son-in-law,
Mr. II. J. Livingston, at Weeping
Lincoln, Dec. 16. One ot the im
portant recommendations which will
be brought to the notice of the com
ing session of the legislature Is a
imposition to soli the state school
lands now under lease. The recom
mendation has been incorporated in
the reports of two state officers, State
Treasurer George and Uuul Commis
Both official contend that a sale, of
the school lands of the state will bring
Into the tuto more money than is re
celved at the present time from the
lease of the lands. Umd Com mis-
siontv Cow'f? contends that the larger
portion-; of the school lands unsold
are of a poor class, many of the sec
tions not being worth 50 cents per
acre, and consequently the rental is
so small as hardly to pay for the trou
ble of Keeping track of it.
Treasurer George sets out the plea
that if the lands are sold the state
will derive n revenue from two
?ouice? One of these is by taxation.
The ether reason and the one which
to Mr. George seems the more import
ant Is that if the hind is sold and the
money derived from the sale is In
vested In county, school district or
municipal bonds that the interest on
these bends will bring into the state
revenue more satisfactory' than is
gained by the state holding the lands
and leasing them.
-The Pacific Coast Tour-
. Grandest Railroad Journey in the World
There are more than one hundred different ways to go or to come, but the
all-year way to California, the way in one direction at least, is through the Den
ver gateway, with Scenic Colorado and Salt Lake along the way.
If you desire a more southerly route in Winter, go via Denver and the Santa
Fe Grand Canyon Route, through New Mexico the way of sunshine. If this
is not far enough south, go through Kansas City and Texas, returning through
Salt Lake and Scenic Colorado. But to realize the maximum possibilities as to
scenerVt cities, agricultural landscape and "travel education" of this compre
hensive tour, you should include the Shasta Route and the Pacific Northwest
the Portland, Puget Sound and Spokane regions.

He Oppose Giving It Authority to Fix
Prices, and Says Frequent Reports
Should Be Required 838,172 Immi
grants Admitted During Year.
Washington. Dec. 16. Charles
Nagel, secretary of commerce and la
bor, would sharply define and restrict
the powers and discretion of the pro
posed federal commission to regulate
Industrial corporations. In his annual
report submitted to President Taft
the secretary opposes the endowment
of such a commission, If finally creat
ed by congress, with far-reaching pow
er equal to those exercised by the In
terstate commerce commission over
railroads. He disapproves the sug
geFtion that the commission have au
thority to fix prices of commodities.
Epitomizing his doctrine for govern
mental supervision of business, Mo,
"Instead of pressing federal regula
tion as far ns possible, the real desid
eratum in legislation affecting the
country's business should be to pre-
wve, to the greatest extent consist
ent with the public welfare, the ele
ment of self regulation. The effort
should be to lay down principles of
conduct sufficiently specific to Im
pose desired restraints, at the same
time leaving a wide field for individ
If such a trade commission is well
defined," the secretary says, "It may
serve the general purpose of giving
largo industrial ami commercial con
cerns much needed federal authority
and control. It Is possible by lodging
Id t,he commission well defined dis
cretion an Intelligent purpose may be
served. Put the obvious danger is
that such a commission, once created,
will soon be vested with further pow
ers. The disposition will undoubtedly
be to give It authority to fix prices
nd conditions of operation similar to
that which the interstate commerce
commission now exercises with re
spet to rallro.lds nnd their rates. In
other words, there Is a strong tend
ency to disregard the fundamental dis
tinction between a public carrier and
a private enterprise."

Nagel s report are:
