Diversity of Oplaloaa.
Although the writ was most explicit and
concrete In Its Instructions, there was a
treat variety of opinion among the mem
bers of the council as to how they should
proceed. Never before has ther been so
much concern manifested for keeping a
"straight record."
A majority of the council was on band at
' 10 o'clock, the time set for the meeting,
but an hour elapsed before the tap of the
gavel called them to order. Meanwhile a
caucus waa held In the private office of the
city clerk. These were present: Has
rail, Karr, Whltehorn, Zimman. Trostler,
Hoye and Lobeck. It was announced that
Burkley and Mount were out of the city.

Whltehorn stretched himself at length
upon the eoui h. pulled his cap ever b i
eyes and tried to go to sleep. In his
hands were written notices sddressed to all

Railroad rompary. Informing them that

Mount, have a right to be notified, and the
corporations have a right to aay when

can't take snap Judgment on them."
Hoye (alls Hasrsll.
"Yes, I'm on to your curves," retorted
Hoye. "You're trying to do something
that will Invalidate the tax."
Hascall was studying up a saury retort
when Whltehorn woke up and wanted to
know whether he should notify the In Ion
Pacific to be on hand Monday afternoon.
"Because If we're going to meet Monday
as a board of equallxatlon." he added, "we
can't give them a hearing."
Nobody paid any attention to htm and the
discussion was resumed.
Mcintosh wanted the council to meet at
once as a - board of equalisation, set the
time for hearing the complaints of Relators
Shriver and Morton, instruct the clerk to
Issue notice and subpoenaea and then ad-
ourn to that time, and this program, over
the protest of City Clerk Eibourn, waa
finally carried out.
The following notice was prepared and
signed by all of the councilmen present:
In pursuance of the mandate of the su
preme court ordering the city council to
reconvene ce a board of equalisation, a
meeting is hereby called for Friday. April

The caucus then broke up and the coun
cilmen an 3 others adjourned to the city
council chamber, where the councilmen
were called to order by the city clerk aa a
Board of Equalisation. The business here
transacted waa brief and to the point. A
motion waa made that the clerk be directed
to issue subpoenas to each of the five pub
lic service corporations, and thla carried
by a vote of 1 to a. Trostler voted nay.
Another motion provided tor the notifica

The third day of the state gun rlub tour
nament was undoubtedly the beet si far.
The day was at no time as pleasant as
Wednesday afternoon and the targets were
not as easy on account of the strong wind
which blew them down and many of them
were broken below the fence line. At the
aame time the men were In better shape,
as is shown by the scores. The high score
wss little higher than that of Wednesday,
but the average was ftu h higher and the
number of men tied for first place waa
aomething unusual. In the third event,
one for twenty targets, there were ten men
tied for first place, and this number was
rcpested In the ninth event, for fifteen
birds. In th fourth event there were
fourteen of the shooters who had clean
scores, and an even doxen tied for first
place in the aixth event. In the
first event there were six tied for first
place, and tn the second the numb-r
reached seventeen. There were seven men
with clear acores in the fifth and tenth
events, eight men at the same point In the
eighth race and five men tied far first tn j
the seventh.
Fifty-one men shot through all events
and sixty-seven were at the traps during
the day. Fred Gilbert was the high man
for the day, his score 'being lf5. He was
followed by William Crosby, whose score
was 163. Spencer and White were tied for
third place on the score for the day, with
162 targets to their credit, and Burns! le
was fourth with 160. J. A. R. Elliott, who
today will defend the castlron medal chal
lenged by Crosby, made a fair showing, but
was behind his rival five targets when the
day's program closed.

The feature of the day, however, was net
the shooting of the men In the regular
program of events, but the state amateur
championship, in which twenty members of
the Nebraska association took part. The
shoot began at about 3:30 o'clock and waa
finished about Of the twenty entries five
men were left to shoot off the tie. that
cumber having acored twenty-four targets
out of twenty-five. These men were Illion.

was the first one to miss a target. He
missed his secend and fourth, but with that
exception the men shot perfectly until tho
tenth target wss thrown, when Illion. Domi
nie and Bray esch missed a tsrget. leaving
Morrill the only man with a clear score.
He kept this score clean until the twenty
second target, which he missed. In the
meantime others had missed more, leaving

It IwTolves Board of Trade Cerarr
aad tlrs Railroad Mea Three
Stories Are A dost.
Commotion existed In the city railroad i
offices yesteraay because of a widely
disseminated report that some road would
move its uptown office Into the Board of
Trade building, first floor corner front, at
Sixteenth and Farnam streets, as soon as
improvements now in progress there art
It was said that no lease was yet signed
for the place, but that three local railroad
offices were vleing with each other for the
corner. These were the Chicago, Milwau
kee at St. Taul, the Chicago, Rock Island
A Pacific and the Wabash. Offlciala In
charge at each office named, however, flatly
deny that any change on their part ia con
templated. The fact remains that George t Co., who
handle this building, are apparently fixing
the room designated for occupation by a
railroad office. Every special arrangement
necessary for such a purpose is being made.
The firm, however, gays that tt has com
pleted no arrangements for occupancy with
Which road will move there is a puzzle.
All admit that it Is a most desirable loca
tion, with advantages of floor space and
square room and two fronts aa well. But
the Milwaukee people Insist that they are
still after the Mandelberg corner in the
Paxton block acroaa the street; the Rock
Islsnd officials say they have a two years'
lease yet on their present location, and
have apent much money on permanent fix
tures, while they will shortly spend more
on Improvements, so it Is preposterous to
think they will move; lastly, the Wabash
men say they would like the place, but thai
the price ia entirely too steep, and they
will not go there. George t Co. have
recently approached the Wabafh on the
matter. They ask 110,000 for the lease be
sides the rent. Four years are yet to run
on the lease.
As a last stab It waa suggested that the
Burlington waa going up there. This
caused the facea of Milwaukee officials to
light up, aa they aald they would then knock
out the wall between their office and the
Burlington and occupy the whole corner at
Fifteenth and Farnam. The Milwaukee la
worse pinched for room than any of them.
Lake Shore to MoTe West,
Another great step In the progress the
western country toward greater lnl ncc
In national railroad affairs la mar:..d by
the removal of all the general offices c th
Lake Shore ft Michigan Southern railway
company from Cleveland to Chicago, which
has Just been announced, to take place as
soon as the new. Lake Shore-Rock Island
passenger station at Chicago is completed.
This will be the first road having Chicago
aa ita western terminal te have . general
offlciala located 11 the Windy City. A few
others, such as the Baltimore ft Ohio and
the Michigan Central, have general passen
ger agents there, but the operstlng, audit
ing and traffic headquartera remain In the
east. The projected move by the Lake
Shore will bring every official aave Presi
dent Newman and Vice President Brown,
who will remain in New Tork City. They
have advocated the move since their first
connection with the Lake Shore. They were
formerly Chicago men.
Four new stories will be added to the sta
tion to be used for the general offlcea. The
change Involves the moving of about 500
officials and employes from Cleveland. The
ststlon will now be thirteen stories high
and Is to be completed by January 1 next.
The offlciala to be moved, together with all
their respective department help, are:

Secretary D. H. Goodrich of the street
railway company waa surprised when, at
2 yeaterday afternoon, a reporter for The
Bee notified him that the supreme court
had granted a writ of mandamus, the effect
of which would be the summoning of the
officers of hla company to appear with their
books and records for a re-assessment.
"I had beard nothing of it," aald he.
"Certainly, we will bring our books and
records If the court orders us to do ao. We
were all ready to do that the other time,
but the referee aaid he didn't want to see
the books. However, it will surprise most
people to see how little the street railway
company Is making."
E. M. Morsman, secretary of the Ne
braska Telephone company, had heard of
the Issuance of the writ, but "wasn't cross
ing any bridges until he came to them."
He aald: "We are waiting to aee what
shape the order will come to us In. and
then, if everything is regular, we shall, of
course, obey the order of the court. We
are already aasessed at our full valuation.
I don't aee what the city hopes to gain by
bringing our books Into court. Then
there a another aide of the question: If
the five public service corporations are as
sessed too low, how about a hundred other
concerns, public and private, of which the
aame may be aaid with equal truth?
Where ia It going to stop? This is a
broader question than appears at first
E. M. Fairfield, general manager for the
water company, aaid: "There will be no
attempt on onr part to evade the order of
court, and when we receive notice to ap
pear before the board with our books and
recorda we'll be there."
