to the increasing number of trees and

more soil and planting trees should con

FoTkfwing i the fuU text of the pro
test filed by Attorney General Leese of
Nebraska against the recent action of t he
state board of transportation whereby
the time of enforcing the ordered reduc
tion in local freight rates was postjxmed
for more complete and thorough un
derstanding of the situation:
In the matter of adjourning the case
now pending concerning
the order of
UV. 1 " o , .
the state board of transportation to tnf
railroad companies, I wish to file my
protest mrainst any further continuance
of this question, and will hereby sUte
m v MoannR!
The board has msde sn order after due
deliberation, snd served it upon the
roads in this state requiring them to so
arrange their schedule of rates that the
rates in this state may be fixed in the
am nmnortion as in the states of aim
r.oanta Illinois. low and Lakota, al-
Imn.'h our rates would be much higher
than in those states.
This case has been adjourned a num
i...n;mo. All the railroad compa
nies have been before the board, and on
the different occasions set lor Hearing
l. n r,,o,lu Inno ar"iimenU each time,
...t i,oxto introduced no evidence. And
now afk-r the rouds have refused to in
troduce any testimony to rihow cause
why they don't obey the order of the
state board, and have interposed every
technicality kuonn to the law, a majori
ty of the state board presents a pocket
resolution to again adjourn .he case un
til November 12. 1W.
There is no reoncst by ti e railroad com-
nanies for an adjournment. The lUaJOr-
iti? nf tli ItnflTI 1 voting on the adjourn
ment ore not dissatisfied with the order
made by the board, although two of them
voted against it when it was introduced
July 5: but the motjon to adjourn is for
the allegetl purpose oi nnuwg om mo
cost of roads, and this is the only reason
assigned on the part of the majority of
the board. What have these members
been doing for the past two years? Why
have they not made these inquiries be
fore? Why do thej not read the report of
the railroad commissioners where the
costs of all the roads are given under
oath, and have been printed and signed
by these same members? Why is it that
our three secretaries have not gained
this information during the last two
years? What consideration has the
state received for the $23,000 appropri
ated to the board, if at this late day
neither of the secretaries nor the major
ity of the board knows whet it costs to
build a railroad? The cost of the vari
ous roads has been given to the board,
and has been sworn to by the officers of
the roads, and they will swear to the
same facts and figures again. The res
olution does not ask for any in forma
tion relating to the operating exix-usea,
which is very necessary if the design is
to fix rates, and if every question con
tained in the resolution Bliouhl be prop
erly answered, the hoard would be in no
better condition to make rat es than they
are to-day. And if fur any reason the
statements are not the identical lan
guage used in the report, as in the reso
lution, it would onlv have been necessa
ry to ask a few additional questions, and
tiiey would have been cheerfully an
swered by every road in the state, but
for the board itself to adjourn this case
at this time until the 12th of November
is beyond my comprehension.
If the majority of the board thought
they had made a mistake in making the
original order, and desired t recede
from tlie position they had taken, it
would have been their dntv to hava
stated that fact, and dismissed the case
and commenced anew, but to adjoura
the ease for the reason designated leads
me to believe that it is a subterfuge and
for some other object than the one
The fact is apparent that the pending
case is one that is absorbing the minds
of the people of the state and they have
the right to know whether the state has
the authority to fix rates on these rail
roads, and especially so as the Union
Pacitie railway claims exomtia from
the jurisdiction of our state law be
cause it has been incorporated by an act
To adjourn this case until Nevember
12, without knowing how the state board
will hold on this question, is in itself a
gross violation of public duty and I can
only say that while I must submit to
the vote of the majority, I do so pro
testing with my own voice and vote, in
the name of justice to the people of this

in this state, realizing the fact that we

! corporations, and an utter disregard of
"S"" . people shown, 1 raise
voice against the same. I am willing
u0wi 'l!ay8 ,mve been, and always will
be, to allow every road such rates as will
yield a fair per cent on the value of the
property, under the same rule of econ
omy as to operating expenses, as should
be used in the private affairs of the in
dividual stockholders. Every fair
minded man should be willing te con
cede this, and I do not believe that there
is a man in this state that would object
to snch rates. I do now and alway will
object to snch rate as will yield a divi

known as watered tock, and make this

I consider it a misfortune at this time
for the board to delay so vital a ques

taken until evening.
Upon reassembling in the evening V.
Cadv Herrick, of Albany, was made per
manent chairman. Following a speech
from Herrick the committee on resolu
tion presented the platform. In the
first plank the St I-oui. candidates and
the platform are endorsed. The presi
dent letter of acceptance is commended
ms an elaboration of what the New ork
democracy believe and feel. The second
plank haU "with triotie satisfaction
the bold, aggressive and statesmanlike
message of President Cleveland n,xn
the fisheries question, vindicating the
ri-hts and prochtimins anew the dignity
of American citizenship. W e congratu
late our country in that it has a presi
dent who, know in-the right, dares to
maintain it." The third phiink com
mends the efforts of the president to en
force the laws relative to contract hilor,
and resommends a the rough revi
sion of the laws, so as to exclude
..;,.! and imiieni from abroad.
The Chinese bill in endorsed and it
approval by the senate demanded.
"We condemn the republican ma
jority of the United States senate, run
the language of the pUtfcnn, "for its
hostility to the labor im-nsnre which
were passed by the house of represent
atives in Mao-hand April of Wft and
which failed to r.-c ive even considera
tion by the republican branch of the
legislature." Fourth, "We maintain
that the combination of capital, com
monly called trusts, are eon-piracies
which limit production, fix tho price of
commodities regardless of the cost of
production and reduce tho jirice of la
bor, crush out smaller independent
dealers and strangle competition. These
conspiracies are not privaUi affairs.
They are matters of governmental con
cern. We demand of tho legislature to
prevent such combinations, mid we con
demn the last republican legislature
for defeating all legislation for the sup
pression of these trusts and monopolies
alike contrary to common law and dan
gerous to the proserity of a free peo
ple." The fifth plank bears upon the
liquor question in this state. The high
license legislation of recent sessions is
characterized and denounced as tho
"variable, defective and hyiiooritical
legislation of republican legislatures
upon the liquor question, most of which
was clearly inconsinU'ut and not hon
estly designed or calculated to
nid the cause of tmiMtrance
bnt intended only to mislead the people
and for Kilitind effect" Phink six nt
the outset favors purity of elections, and
nt the close condemns the haxtoii elec

the state is demanded, a constitutional
convention is urged, homo rule for cities
is advocated, legislation to prevent food
from adulteration is asked, and all labor
