THE STATE CAPfTAL
MATTERS OF INTEREST 'TO ALL
" CITIZENS. .
LETS HOUSE ROLL NO. 427
A Blunder Seems to Have Been Com
mitted When Legislature Passed
Blunder of Legislature.
The last legislature blundered when
it passed Representative Lee's house
roll No. 427, according to information
now before Attorney General Thomp
son. The act, which is now a law, re-
peals that portion of section 37, chap
ter 18, compiled statutes of 1905,
which provides that any one desiring
to appeal from the disallowance of a
claim before a county board must give
notice to the county clerk within
twenty days of such decision. A coun
ty attorney called the attention of the
attorney general to the new law and
its change in the former statute. If
the act remains in force all limitations
will be removed and a claim dis
allowed by a county board can be ap
pealed from years after the decision
of the board. The act, however,
leaves another provision in force in
section 33, chapter 18; compiled sta
tutes of 1905, which says upon the al
lowance of a claim against a county
the warrant shall not be delivered to
the party until the time for taking an
appeal has expired, and if the appeal
be taken then, not until the same shall
have been determined.
House roll No. 472 was Introduced
by Representative Lee of Douglas
county. It was intended, evidently to
re-enact sections 33, 37 and 74 of
chapter 18. compiled statutes of 1905,
with the addition of a proviso permit
ting the filing of claims with the
county comptroller and not with the
county clerk in counties having a
county comptroller. The act was in
tended to apply only to Douglas

The idea of the board is that many
farms of Nebraska have been worked
for about twenty-five and thirty years;
that the soil has been taken from and
very little given back. The virgin
prairie will be analyzed and then the
farm which has been worked will be
investigated. That which the latter
soil lacks, which was in the virgin
soil, will be given to it. Farmers will
be instructed in the use of the prop
er treatment of the soil, and in the
opinion of the Board of Regents the
result will be so beneficial as to be
At least four experts will be start

Sibley Confers on Grain Case.
Senator Sibley was in consultation
with the Railway commission over the
hearing In the matter of grain rates
over the Burlington, against which
the Lincoln county man protested.
This hearing is set for April 28. In
discussing the case Senator Sibley
said he was not a shipper of grain,
though he would have no trouble in
establishing the fact that he is inter
ested in grain rates.
"I raise grain, and cattle and hogs,"
he said, 'and the Burlington railroad
fixes the prices for which I must sell
what I raise. We pay higher rates
on grain than is paid in Iowa or ad
joining states and we are entitled to
a lower rate." Senator Sibley said
he was not ready to announce his can
didacy for congress in the Sixth dis
trict, though it is generally under
stood he will be a candidate for the
Hearing for Railroad Employes.
The railway commission received a
request from employes of the North
western railroad for a hearing in the
matter of a proposed reduction in rail
road rates. The commission received
a similar request or rather a protest
from emploj-es of the Burlington road
and at that time told the men they
would be given an opportunity to be
heard before the commission acted
upon rates. No definite date was set
The request from a Northwestern
employe came from Omaha.
