County Commissioner A. O. Harte, chair
man of the finance committee of the board,
favors declining to longer pay S per cent
Interest on the refunding bonds Issued in
1887. He would offer the holders thereof
the choice between exchanging them for
new ones to run twenty years from this
laat June at 8 per cent or going Into the
federal courts to sue the county on the
old bonds. In the Utter event Harte be
lieves the county could win because Attor
ney Oenetal Prout haa declared the lesue of
1887 to be Illegal by reason of Ita having
been made under the act of v!88B, which
was void because, he holds. It sought to
amend the act of 1877, which had been re
pealed by Implication by the broader act
Bond dealers hold that this attitude ot
Harte's Is practically one of repudiation
and Insist that If adopted by tho board
officially It will work to the extreme detri
ment of the county's standing In financial
circles, which has always been high, they
say, because of the fact that never haa
the county defaulted or repudiated. So far
a the Prout opinion la concerned, they say
that It cannot offset, the fact that for fif
teen yeara the county haa acknowledged
the validity of these bonds by paying the
interest on them twice a year.
Board Laeka Iaforatatloa.
Member of the board say that something
will be agreed upon In time tor formal
action by the board at Ita Saturday meet
ing, but there seems some reason to be
lieve that conclusions will be difficult ot
attainment, because of the absence of
knowledge of the present status In the
process of exchanging the new bonds for
the old. Kelly d Kelly, with whom the
agreement was made, stated that they had
all but about $40,000 of the $268,000 ot the
Issue ot 1877, and consequently that firm
was expected to corral the rest and make
the complete exchange by July 1, yet up to
this time the county treasurer haa received
enly $84,000 of the old bonds, cancelled.
These came with three lettera from the
bond clerk In the office of the auditor of
publlo accounts at Lincoln. The letter
stated that forty-seven were exchanged on
July 1, twelve on July 9 and twenty-five on
July 11. Where the other 184 bonds of
$1,000 each are held neither the board nor
the county treasurer know.
They assume that they are generally
scattered and will be coming In later and
on the accuracy of this assumption appears
to rest the county's Immunity from a law
suit. If some of the holders thereof de
cide that It 1 more desirable for them to
get 6 per cent for five yeara than 84 per
cent for twenty rers, and If the board'
takes Harte's attitude, declaring It a case
ot "exchange or get nothing at all," there
will be no other way out than through
the courta. Harte seems In no way
alarmed by thla prospect , and Connolly
aeems rather to relish the Idea of fighting
Farson Leach again la court, but a local
financial man makes the prediction that
In such a suit the county will be "whipped
outN of Its boots and suffer heavily In
Boad Dealers' Views.
"The board membera,"r he said, "are be
ing Influenced too largely, by their dislike
for Farson Leach and the previous victory
over his company. , Thla Isn't a parallel
ease and a great many people-beside Far
aon Leach are probably concerned."
The latter part ot thla statement Is veri
fied to some extent perhaps by information
In the poesesslon of the county treasurer,
who has observed on some of the coupons
paid In the past the atamp of a bank in
Barnesvllle, O., and others who seemed to
be negotiating wholly through Kountze
Bros, of New York, which firm la the fiscal
agency tor Nebraska and some other west
And here again la trouble and confusion.
The agency la reported to have declined to
pay interest on the old bonda due July 1
and nobody about the court house knows
why. The attorney for Farson Leach re
ported to the board that when hla clients
sent In their coupons the agency sent them
back accompanied by the board's formal
declaration that the issue had been Illegal
and by Attorney General Prout' opinion
to the same effect. George W. Hoobler of
Omaha had a client who owned $9,000 of
the bonda and who wa treated in like
manner by the agency.
Beard Haaa't Inoatred.
The board doesn't know and hasn't writ
ten to learn why thla occurred, but con
siders that It la free from responsblllty
because the county treasurer haa aent the
money with which to make the payment
If the fiscal agency la so disposed. At the
end of every six months the county pre
pares to pay $38,427.50 Interest on bonda.
Ot this, $11,000 Is aent to tho state treas
urer and $1,875 to the Merchants National

A good deal of attention baa been at
tracted recently by a new decoration upon
tha walla of the Young Womens Christian
association parlor In the shape of a huge
thermometer painted on canvas. "What
doea It meant" la the general question..
The decoration la a unique scheme adopted
by tbe membership committee to call at
tention to the fact that they havs deter
mined to raise tbe membership of the asso
ciation to 1,000. The number of members
nsw and renewals that have come In since
tbe annual .meeting In April la Indicated
by the belghth of the mercury and aa the
number lacreaaea the mercury la being
raised. Tbe scheme has created general
Intereat and many renewals are coming la
to help raise It to ths 1,000 mark.
In making up ths membership list for
the manual ot 1901-1 It la found that tbe
membership of tbe Omaha Womans club
haa decreased by about fifty from Its num
ber at thla time laat year. Thla fact haa
acltea no apprehension on tbs part el
bank cf Omaha and the rest to the fiscal
genry In New Tork. Direct payment
to the state treasurer and to the
local bank . is madj In order to
save the one-eighth of 1 per cent
that the agency at New York charges for
transacting tbe business. The county
treasurer baa the agency's acknowledgment
of the receipt on June 26 last, of $11,466.82,
all but a few dollars of which were to pay
ths Interest on the bonda. Apparently tbat
money now lies Idle In a Gotham vault,
waiting for the commissioners and the
county's creditors to settle their differences.

In the advertisements which have Imme

details of taxea paid by the railroads ot
Nebraska, and the amounta tbey have paid

Other statea have done In regard to tbe
taxation of railroads which run through
their commonwealths. In the matter of
taxation, aa In any other business matter,
tbe people of Nebraska desire to, and nat
urally ahould keep In line with what is
done In other states. No greater disaster
could occur to the State of Nebraska, than
if, by Ill-advised action. It should throw

It may be a taking proposition for a
demagogue to advocate the over taxing of
railroad compantea and thereby work a
hardship against them that would not ac
crue to other lines of property within the
Btate', but It would be an advertisement
that would pass through the whole United
States, proclaiming that the people of Ne
braska did not Intend to be aa fair with
capital as other states of the Union. It
would reproduce here In Nebraska that
prejudice which took Kansas a term ot at
least ten yeara to dispel.
The comparlsona which we have made In
these foregoing statementa include every
state In the Union, with the exception ot
Massachusetts. In Massachusetts, New
York and several other atates lawa have
been passed which work a hardship against
railroad corporations. In New York
tbe onerous tax paid by the New
York Central railroad Is being tested In
the courts; Its 111-ad vised law la working
a hardship agalst that road, while not In
juring the others in the State to any ex
tent. In Massachusetts, through a con
tract made in tbe early daya between the
corporations and the State, and their ex
cise laws, tbe taxes are out ot Una with
what la done In other atates, and there ia
a general movement among the business
people ot that 8tate looking to the correc
tion of thla abuse.
In Harper's Weekly of February 15, 1M2,
ths following Is an extract from an 'edi
torial In regard to this matter:
"There la a very strong movement In the
State of Massachusetts for rational corpo
ration lawa. Tbe commonwealth la wak
ing up to the fact that, under Ita present
laws, large modern corporations cannot be
organised In tbe State, and Massachusetts
capital la aeeklng Inveatment elsewhere.
Not only tbe corporation law Is restrictive
and narrow, but the tax lawa
are aa unreasonable aa those of
New York. . Both States taxea all
the property of a corporation wherever It
la situated, and thla la double taxation.
. An effort la being made In New
York and will be made up in Massachusetts
to put an end to thla aystem of double taxa
tion. There Is a feeling abroad that New
Jersey should not remain the refuge of all

combinations which want liberal treat
ment." In Wisconsin It appears that they have
an entirely different form ot taxation for
railroad corporations from other states,
as the taxes are collected In the form ot
an excise tax, being collected on the gross
earnings ot the compantea In auch a way
that while tha tax Is heavy on those roads
which have a large earning capacity. It la
very light on those which are operating at
a loss. Thla form of taxation looks fair,
but it would not be popular in Nebraska,
because all ot the taxes charged against
railroad . corporations in Wlsconain are
turned into the State Treasury and they
are relieved from, paying taxea locally
along their lines. Ia the poorer counties
of Nebraska, thla would mean practically
bankruptcy. In Wisconsin there ia a gen
eral movement looking towards a change
In the form of taxation. After having tried
a law aomethlng of the same character as
that of Wisconsin, Michigan haa returned
to the direct form of taxation.
Thla whole subject ot tbe payment et
taxea on tbe part of the railroad corpora
tions resolves Itself Into a question as to
how much of their revenue ahould be di
verted to thla purpose.
If the taxes were out of reason, It would
place Nebraska in an unsvlable light be
