SD DECIOES SUPREME COURT
Railroads Cannot Exchange Advertis
ing for Transportation Other
Matters at the State Capital.
It has been held Illegal by the su
preme court for a ralroad to issue
mileage to newspapers in exchange
for advertising. The court gave this
decision in the case where the at
torney general brought an original
action to restrain the Union Pacific
railroad from carrying out certain
contracts it had with newspapers to
exchange advertising space for
mileare. The court had heretofore is
sued a temporary injunction and this
has been made permanent.
The opinion was written by Judge
Letton ::nd was concurred in by the
court except Judge Rose, who did
Judge Letton In his syllabus says
the railway commission act, anti-pass
and l-cent fare acts must be con
strued together. He said: "Under the
law, in this state a ralroad company
or other common carrier may not ex
change transportation for services or
property by way of barter, uniformity
of charge being required. To procure
uniformity there must be a standard
measurement. The only standard
measure possible in order to insure
absolute uniformity in the charge is
"A contract which provides for
transportation to be issued in ex
change for newspaper advertising or
for services the value of which is in
determinate and which permits the
amount to be paid for such services
to be fixed by agreement of the
parties, leaves the rate charged for
the transportation a variable quantity.
"A contract by a railroad company
to furnish to the proprietors of a
newspaper, as requested, transporta
tion at the statutory rate under cer
tain limitations, restrictions not re
quired in ordinary tickets in payment
for advertising to be furnshed at
agreed rates, which agreed rates are
not specified In the contract, but
which are to be selected by the
parties themselves, by another agree
ment, is in violation of section 14 of
the Railway Commission act. Section
30CC2. amended statue 1901. which
prohibits common carriers from
charging one person a greater or less
compensation than another, and
which prohibits charging "other than
the rate fixed and established."
"If the proprietor of another news
paper may be selected by defendant
to receive transportation In return for
such services while the proprietor of
another cannot avail himself at his
option of the privilege of such con
tract, then, equality and uniformity of
charge do not exist.
"Such a contract contravenes the
intent and purpose of the statutes,
which prohibits unjust discrimination
and which seek to preserve to every
Individual an equal right to the trans
portation service of every common
carrier within the state upon equal ,
terms with every other individual."
Damages Against a Newspaper.
The case of Thomas Dennison
ngainst the Daily News Publishing
company of Omaha for libelous publi
cation, in which the district court
found for the plaintiff, has been
affirmed by the supreme court.

License Year in Omaha.
The supreme court has held that
the board of fire and police commis
sioners of Omaha may issue a liquor
license to run from January 1. 1910,
to January 1, 1911. The case came up
on the application of Peter Johnson
of Omaha for a liquor license to run
for the period mentioned.
Bert Taylor Must Hang.
Bert Taylor is to be banged Oct.
28. The death sentence was affirmed
by the supreme court. Taylor mur
dered his seventeen year old sister-in-law.
Pearl Taylor, of Minden.andis
supposed to have tried to kill her
younger sister. Judge J. B. Barnes
wrote the opinion of the supreme
court which affirms the death sen
tence. Chief Justice M. B. Reese who
is known to disapprove of capital
punishment wrote a dissenting opinion
and Judge S. 11. Sedgwick concurred
in the dissent.
Money for Public Schools.
State Superintendent Bishop has
certified to State Auditor Barton the
amount of the semi-annual school ap
portionment and the amount due each
county In the Htate. The county of
Garden is not included in the list, be
cause the state superintendent has
no official knowledge of the school
census in that county. So the amount
due the school districts in the new
county has been accredited to Deuel
county and when the school census is
taken for Garden, the amount due
will be paid it by Deuel county.
No Power to Fine.
Because the police judge of Lincoln
had no authority to fine Gus A.
Jugenheimer $200 for violating a rule
of the Lincoln Excise board the
supreme court has dismissed the
petition in error. The district court
had affirmed the judgment of the
police judge and none of the lawyers
called atention of the supreme court
to the fact that the police court had
no jurisdiction and that the affir
mance by the district court was a
nullity, but an examination of the re
cord disclosed that condition.
STORING THE WATER.
Werk Done at the North Platte Sub
Station. The Nebraska Experiment Station
Aas issued Bullet! No. 114, on Stor
ing Moisture In the Soil. This bulle
tin is a report of work done at the
Experimental Substation located at
This bulletin takes up the necessity
of storing water in the soil during
periods of wet weather to be used
during periods of drouth. A short de
scription is given of the type of soil
found on the Substation farm, the
manner of sampling, and the depth of
sampling. Some sample were taken
to a depth of 15 feet in order to reach
a point below which the crops could
not obtain water.
A map is given showing the divi
sion of the farm into fields and also
one showing the soil areas of the
state. A brief discussion of the move
ments cf the water found in the soil
is also given.
The charts show that water is con
served in the soil through cultivation
and that It is necessary to keep the
surface of the soil loose and in a re
ceptive condition to get the water
into the soil. Almost as much water
is gotten into the soil during the
early part of the season where a cul
tivated crop is being grown as is con
nerved by summer tillage. This is due
to the fact that the surface soil is
kept loose enough to-.hold the water
that falls" until it can get down into
the soil, and the loose soil on the
surface prevents evaporation; it is
also due to the fact that comparative
ly few plants are being grown in a
cultivated field and these do not draw-
very heavily on the water supply dur
ing the early part of their growth.
In a small grain field more plants
are grown, with the result that the
water Is used more rapidly and less
water is gotten into the soil. In fields
growing alfalfa or bromo grass where
the number of growing plants are
large and the surface of the soil Is
smooth and hard. It Is seldom that
enough water gets Into the soil to
moisten the soil below two or three
feet. By the method of summer till
ing practiced, from 40 to 50 per cent
of the season's rainfall has been
stored for the use of the subsequent
crop. On this type of soil the water
is available for the crop.
Several charts and tables are given
in the bulletin, to show the amount
of precipitation at North Platte. One
table given shows the daily precipita
tion during the period that this work
was being done. Charts showing the
annual precipitation and the average
precipitation by raonth3 are also

Walter Whltten, secretary of the i

The Bostwick State bank of the
town of Bostwick, Nuckolls county,

banking board. The new bank will
have a paid up capital stock of $10,

Grew, C. H. Waldo and J. V. Kirk
bride. Consolidation Approved.
State Auditor Barton has approved
the plan of consolidation of the High
land Nobles of Waterloo, la., and the
American Order of Protection of Lin
coln. Before the consolidation may be
effected it Is necessary that two
thirds of the membership in both
lodges vote in the affirmative. The
first protest has come from Cheyenne,
Wyo., where a member of the latter
company entered a protest and insist
ed that if the order would change its
headquarters to Cheyenne there
would be little trouble about enlarg
ing its membership.
Petition Being Circulated.
Petitions are being circulated
among buttermakers and dairymen In
Nebraska protesting against the
passage of the proposed federal law
to lay a tax of two cents on colored
and uncolored oleomargarine. At
present uncolored oleomargarine,
which is easily detected and which
does not compete seriously with the
butter trade, pays a tax of a quarter
of one cent per pound. Colored oleo
margarine, which is readily mistaken
for butter, if it3 appearance alone is
judged, pays an almost prohibitive
tax of ten cents a pound.
School Money Distribution.
W. D. Redmon, statistician in the
office of the state superintendent, will
be able in a day or two to certify to
the auditor the amount of money
each county in the state is entitled
under the semi-annual distribution ot
the temporary school fund. The
amount to be apportioned this May
is $324,266.89. This will be 87 cents
for each pupil, there being 371,452
children of school age in the state at
this time. Douglas county will re
ceive of the fund 134,484.93. A year
ago the amount was 1293.182.49.
