LINCOLN , Sept. 7. 1
As soon n < nil preliminary questions wore
nettled yesterday afternoon Judge Thuraton
took tlio floor n nil dc II tied the position ot tlio
Union I'uelllc. Tlili properly commencoJ the
buttlo on tno freight reduction question. Ho
Biild that it was n clear proposition of Inw
ttmt no board could mnko an order reducing
freight rates unless u complulnt had llrst
been ( lied us prescribed by law. To do this
& finding oT facts becomes necessary , necoi-
Diluting Investigation and the taking of testi
mony. "When this,1' snld the Jtfdgo , "lidono
in ix proper manner , and If the conditions
warrant it , an order may bo made , but not
without. " Continuing , ho nald : "Tho notice
of the order shall bo served on the roads by a
slicrilT or constable , after which ten days Is
given them by the statutes of thu Htiitc to
show cause why the order ought not to bo
enforced. Tlio code of the stuto fur
nishes complete. Instructions as to thu duties
of the board and roads. " Ho said that the
scrvlco was imperfect and not according to
luw , and that tlio Jurisdiction of the board in
tlio premises was very questionable. In con
nection with the paint raised on the iiniwr-
feet Horvlco the judge said that the present
order could not be enforced , and that oun of
the grc.it reasons for his attendance at the
bearing was to prevent si now order upon a
perfect service. Ho insisted upon the ab
surdity of the move because tlio state was
not ready for it. Hut he urged the pomtthat
too "fliidinit" had been made. "Tho records , "
eald he , "kept for that purpose us ro.juircd
by law , do not show that tlio railroads have
been unjust , unreasonable , or discriminative.
No complaints are Hied of which legal notlco
) ms been served. The order in question
was not servea upon the Union Pa-
clilc until the llth of July , the
return of which was ordered for the 20th.
To comply with such nn order would bo to
disregard the law creating the bomd The
roads have always been willing to meet tlio
Jieonlo half way , and the history of the board
will show this to bo ti fact. In almost every
instance where complaints have been made
the rouds huvo promptly rectified mistakes
and adjusted matters to the satisfaction of
the people. To enforce the present order
will bo to postpone the settlement of the rate
problem fully live years. It will ralso rates
on Homo classes of goods , while it lowers on
At the close of Thurston's speech Ilurrows
Of Gage , representing the farmers' alliance.
Was heard. Ills speech was to the point and
clear of varnish. Ho represented a class that
the railroads of Nebraska tire bound to ro-
Bpcct , and ho handled cold facts In a manner
that greatly annoyed Mr. Kagan of Hastings ,
who constantly interrupted him. ThOHpcaker
bollcvcd that the state would bo benclited
by tlio establishment of rates that would
build up manufacturing and Jobbing centers.
Discriminating charges in the shipment of
buggies from Columbus , O. , to Hontrico and
from Omaha to Beatrice are cited as an in
justice , and as a trite Illustration of the fact
that local tariff rates are needed and ilo-
tnundca In Nebraska. By the long distance
tariffs ho showed conclusively thut in u
ecnse , conditions and circumstances consid
ered , buggy making In Columbus was en
couraged , while at homo the opposite Is the
case. Ho contended for equal advantages
for homo industries. Ho handled figures
and facts connected with railroad work that
showed that he had mastered the situation ,
nnd his ready answers to the questions of the
attorneys was conclusive that they could not
purry his truths. The speaker frankly ad
mitted that the railroads might not bo mak
ing any money at present , hut ho was
equally sure that the farmers of the state
bud the roads at no disadvantage in
this respect. Aside from the advancing
values of the farms of Nebraska the farmers
wcro not making 1 per cent on their Invest
ments. Ho was quite sure the railroad com
panies doing business in the state could not
truthfully show the same unfortunate con
ditions. Hut exceptions might bo poiutcd
out.Sharp questions wcro injected into Bur
row's speech from time to time. Hut he hold
bis own , and spectators not warped by preju
dices must acknowledge the supremacy of
At the conclusion of his remarks the board
adjourned until0 o'clock this morning , when
Ficd Heddo , of the Grand Island Independ
ent , took occasion to push the wadding out of
the remonstrance filed with the board from
the board of trades of the city ho repre
sented. Mr. Hcduo proved no novlco in pro-
pcntlng tbo claims of the people of the stato.
Ho , too , bad looked Into the situation. Ho
could see no earthly reason why Iowa , Min
nesota , Wisconsin or Illinois should bo built
up at the expense of Nebraska. He
hurled the fact at the attorneys that
discrimination had been made In and out of
the state , and that complaints had been made
to the board , and that tno railroads , and not
the board or the people , were responsible for
the war being waged against oppression. "It
Is time , " snU } the bpc.iker , "for bulldozing
nnd binning to stop. If the railroads can not
muke a living in Nebraska at rates more than
t > 0 per cent higher than in Iowa , they had
better go Into bankruptcy and lot the state
lift them up and opcmto It. " The speaker
Illustrated his points by facts and figures and
Was frequently Interrupted.
Hugiin hero got the floor and stated that
the reduction order was not understood. It
Is simple u schedule formula and does not
uniformly reduce rates , or necessarily mean
reduction. Hut the absurdity of the position
wim shown by Secretary Agcr , who stated
that white frcighVclasses D and E wcro each
raised n small per cent , otherwise- uni
formly , n reduction of nearly or
fluito 15 per cent would follow the onforce-
luent of the order.
Hut Hagaii declined to down the ghost and
Insisted on his point , and was helped out by
& suggestion from "Union Pacific John" that
reduction would still remain wholly In the
bands of the magnanimity or discretion ol
the railroads. "Long distance tariffs can bo
BO raised as to destroy a reduction of local
tariffs. " It was a wonderful piece of inge
nuity to suggest that the railroads would
"cut off their own noses" to spite themselves.
Ragun continued nnd said that Iowa hail
acted wisely. She got all the roads she
wanted nnd then proceeded to regulate. Ac
tion of the kind In Nebraska would keep out
capital , stop railroad building nnd retard the
development of the staui fifteen years. Ho
produced statistics showing the number of
miles of railroad Iowa , Minnesota , Wiscon
sin nnd Illinois had In 1BS5 and the popula
tion of each state as well. Hut ho got bo-
bind the present three years , when the
conditions wcra so vastly different , that his
$ points lost their forco.
Jt Uurrows warmed him up occasionally by
r injecting pertinent questions. Ho did no1
llko Kagan'u implication that the farmers of
the htato were acting upon theories built bj
demagogues and agitators. Ho gave him to
understand that the farmers thought for
themselves. The records furnished the
knowledge upon which the class ho rcpre
Bonted were acting. Demagogues might bo
i found In the railroad camp.
C5. S. Hall , candidate for the house fron
i this county , suggested that the attorneys for
the roads had repeatedly stated tha
, I their remedy would lie. In the courts If the
t board sustained the order ; that If the boori
were reasonably satisfied with Its legality
they could do nothing clso thnn stay by it.
Ho Insisted that the board could not go back
ward. "If the railroads huvo a remedy ii
the courts that is tbo place to
Bettla this controversy. It cannot hoi ]
but land thcro. The dignity of tbo board
demanded u linn stand for the pcoplo unde
the circumstances. The railroads cannot bo
liurt If they are right and the courts furnish
them a remedy. "
\ L. H , Lawton nnd S. M. Frlnk , two Intelll
cent farmers , addressed the board and asked
them to stand linn for what they believed to
bo Just und rjght. They said that a move
bad been made In the Interests of the forme
nnd that they hoped the order would stam
Judge Hawley then reviewed the order a
ervat length. Ho assailed the legality o
tno order , the Jurisdiction of the board am
tbo questionable service. Ho cited author !
ties to sustain his ( totnU and compared th
action of-tlio borfrd. with the requirements of
Ho attacked Attorney General Lccso for
flaying that the bonrd would sustain Its
orders. Ho did not llko to discuss a question
bearing premeditated decision.
Lccsc corrected him by staling that his
language Implied that the board would sus
tain nil its legal orders. Thut ho was open
to conviction. Hut Hawley vould not have
it that wav because It would deprive him of
the free use of Invective. Hut ills argument
was n repetition of the jiolnts raised In the
nimwcr framed by the load ho represents ,
and of which Tin ; Hr.r. gave u full text some
weeks ago , nnd a repetition Is unnecessary.
Mr. Hawley's argument closed the hearing
on the reduction nrdcr.
Thu action of the board came up this after
noon. The session was a stormy one , but
concluded at (5 ( o'clock this evening. Secreta
ries MIIKOII and Mungcr filed their opinion
that the roads had waived nil
rlgh t to any error that might have
existed In the. service. Mason submitted his
opinion In writing that "findings of
facts" wcro necessary other than what the
record offered. To this , however , Mungor
was not clear , but both concurred In the
opinion that the order wai legal and that
the board had u right to inako the rcduc-
Attorney General Lceso made a splendid
ight for the pcoplo and urged thu Immediate
ssuanco of a peremptory order for

vent th.it the roads refuse lo comply with

very possible way , notwithstanding
ho clear legal opinion of one
f the secretaries that the order was legal
i ml that the board had a right to make it.
vcuio urged the vote on behalf of the peo-
lc. Ho said that JiW.OUU of the people's
noney had been squandered and nothing had
> ccn done , und Insisted that it was time to
act.Laws cnme In with a sickly resolution In-
ended to Indefinitely postpone action. Thereto

The President Snld Damn.
The , president Is n , religious man in
tendency and in training , but. like most
strung natures ho sometimes docs llncl
relief in a good round expletive , says
tlio Now York World. Some time ugo
n cadet at West Point was courtmar-
tialcd and dismissed for lying. The
circumstances were peculiar. Ho had
n good standing in his class and as "an
olllcor and a gentleman'but on o day ,
while in class , ho prompted a fellow
cadet anil was caught at it by the pro
fessor , who instantly asked him if ho
had prompted. Tlio young follow , taken
by surpribo , probably , answered "No. "
Thou the professor turned to the other
and asked if it were not true that ho
had boon prompted by the cadet who
had denied it. The second young
man admitted that ho had boon
prompted. When the llnding of the
court-martial was laid before the presi
dent the facts nbovo noted arrested his ,
attention. Ho laid the papers aside.
After some months botli tno secretary
of war and the superintendent ot the
academy urged that ho should pass
upon the case. The president was still
reluctant and there was a further delay/
Finally the superintendent represented
to him tlio necessity of action , saying :
"If you do not sign this verdict it will
bo very subversive of discipline in the
academy. " The president again sent
for all the papers , looked over Jhcm for
awhile and then said : "I cuunejt think
it right to send a young followrout into
the world with such a stigma upoo him
for an offense confanUed uKder s.uch
circumstances. " Ho looked , at. th pa
pers again for n moment , and then Bald :
"I'll bo d - d If I'll sign thin verdict ! "
And ho didn't. Across the face of the
finding of the court martial Is written ,
in his hand , "Disapproved. "
Had n bilious attack and one ot those
indescribable cases of constant weari
