RATE QUESTION UP IN SENATE.
Fulton of Oregon Precipitates Dis
cussion In Explanatory Speech.
Washington, Jan. 17. Unexpectedly
the senule found itself considering the
railroad rate question, which was pre
cipitated by Pulton's taking tho lloor
to mnko a brief speech In explanation
of an amendment offered by him to
tho Dollivcr bill, giving to courts of
justice authority to modify orders of
tho interstate commerce commission
imposing an unreasonable! rate. He
had not proceeded far when ho was
switched from a general explanation
of the terms of the provision to a de
fense of tho principle which It seeks
to establish, and a general debate
followed. Fulton held the floor
thrmitilmnt. lint lhon wim-h mnnv In.
torruptlons, and other senators fully
shared the time, among them being
Forakor, Spooucr, Bailey and Clay.
Tho discussion was listened to most
attentively by all the senators, show
ing the great interest that Is felt In
the subject. The trend of the con
trovorsy was all toward tho point as
to wlu'ther congress has tho right to
delegate Its authority to fix rates and
whr-lhor tho courts may determine
what Is a reasonable rato. Fulton con
tended that the courts may legitimate
ly exorcise this right.

STATE WINS BURLINGTON CASE.
Nebraska Can Collect Railroad Taxea
on State Board's Valuation.
Omaha, Jan. 15. Judge Muuger of
tho federal court decides tho railroads
of Nebraska must puy their taxes.
Such is the essence of his decision in
tho Burlington case, which has been
iought for'tho state by Attorney Gen
oral Brown. This decision will apply
also to tho Union Pacific and to the
collection of taxes for 1905, as well as
1904, of both roads.
This suit was for an Injunction
against tho collection of taxes for the
year 1904 on the basis of valuation
fixed by the stato board of equaliza
tion and assessment. Another suit,
identical in character, had been
brought with relation to tho taxes for
1905, and tho Union Pacific, as woll
as tho Burlington, had Instituted the
Tho total assessment for the Bur
lington and Union Pacific for the two
years amounts to $2,056,482. Togeth
er they have tendered $1,440,680. Tho
Union Pacific tendered or paid $256,

$348,000, and $275,000when its assess-

ment amounted to $385,000.
General Mandcreon, general solic
itor for tho Burlington, said hla road
had paid in 1904 $444,710.78 in taxes
to the stato and $472,970.24 in 1905,
and that the amounts in dispute were,
1904, $21(5,802, and 1905 $215,000. The
penalty on this is 10 per cent; that Is
if tho railroads finally loso they must
pay 10 per cent.
"Inasmuch as tho county warrants
draw 7 per cent, tho counties will
clear 3 por cent, which is pretty good
interest on their money these days,"
remarked General Mandersou. "Of
courso tho decision as to tho 1904
taxes wlllnpply to the taxes of 1905,
henco It means a decision for both
cases. We have not yet seen the full
text of tho decision and cannot say
what we shall do as to further litiga
tion. The fact that tho case is one in
equity Will not prevent us from appealing."
