with som of th legislator, for there ar
aome republicans who art ao narrow po
litically that anything that looke good to
a city that voted against even on of the
republican candidate! la a bad, bad meas
ur. Even tha fact that tha republican!
are in such a majority in both houses and
tha fact that good legislation or bad leg
(pint I on will he laid at tbe door of tha
publican party will not, It la not a bad
prediction, offset tha railroad argument.
Tb railroad lobby baa not only been
busy in Lincoln during tha week, but
from tha report being brought in tt haa
don much work out in the atat dlssstn
inatir.g atorlea of reduction of tax collec
tion should the railroad have "to pay city
taxea. The fear of a reduction In tax col
lection la a mighty club and It haa been
wleldef morning noon and night,- and
though the facta agatnat the rallroada are
conclusive, they hare Dvt been driven bom
with the aam vigor and the aam smooth
ness that ha characterlied the Work of

From the stock yarda of South Omaha
cornea mighty waiL It I a fear that th
legislature will reduce th charge mad
by the company. Tha fear 'cam about
thla way. Some time ago William Fax'.on
was in Lincoln seeing what h could e
and hearine- what he could hear, and Sen
ator Umstead Incidentally remarked that
be Intended to Introduce a bill to cut down
tb stock yard rat. Yesterday Mr. Um
stead waa at th stock yarda on private
business. Member of the company
learned of hi presence and In a short
time the senator was th most Bought after
man In that neck of th woods. Sine Mr.
Umstend's return to Lincoln, however,
tb remark mad by him to Mr. Paxton
may become a reality. "I had ' forgotten
It," said Senator Umstead," but since I
have been there and saw how much in
terested and how badly frightened th. men
were.. I em of tb opinion bow that a bill
of that kind would b tb proper thing for
th legislature to pass. Th company's
charges ar entirely too hign ana it is
probable that I will Introduce such a, bljl."

sftcret alliance between Gertnaat and Italy
constituted th most important development
In th Veneiuelaa situation tonight. This
tact ha betn mad known to the British
ambassador and It will put all ' th nego

drafting Of the protocols which ther hope
to submit to Mr. Bowen during th next
The German-Italian alliance waa old
news to Mr. Bowen, he having1 learned ot
it In Caracas befor he left there. Gen
erally speaking, It Is Intended to secure
to Italy the sam treatment In th allies'
settlement with Veneiuela aa that received
by Germany and Great Britain.
Protocols Hast Bo Similar,
Mr.. Bowen has made it plain to both the
British ambassador and tbe German min
ister that he cannot affix hla signature to
any protocola they may present which, ar
not aubstantially of tha same character
aa (hat submitted by the Italian ambassa
dor. All three of th first aet of protocola
have been received at th Italian, Brit
ish and German embassies, but their con
tents ar not known to Mr. Bowen, neither
have the .allies' reprcsentativea been ao-1
qualnted as yet with th .details of each
Several Important conferencea took place
throughout tha day at th British em
bassy in an effort to reach an agreement
upon th protocol.
Regarding reference to The. Hague, Mr.
Bowen baa informed th allies that h
would not consent that one man be se
lected from th personnel of Th. Hague
tribunal to sit as arbiter in th question
ot preferential treatment. U wishes that
the court shs)l consist ot three and pref
erably of 0v members. ' " .
Kxalala Row with Bootobw
'Several' more or less sensational atories
hav been in circulation during the last few
days, which hav caused considerable an
noyance to tha British ambassador and to
th other negotiator regarding th not
Mr. Bowen- addressed to tha former laat
Monday. That these report msy be cor
rected th negotiators ar desirous that
tha facts b stated.
On Tuesday, after receiving tb not,
Sir .Michael Herbert called on Mr. Bowen
and aaked that ha withdraw tha entire
Dots, a It wa not diplomatic In char
acter and Mr. Bowen refused. .
Th ambassador then asked that th sen
tence beginning "on this side ot the water
w want peace and not alliances" with
drawn. Again Mr. Boa in regretted that be could
not grant tbe request!
Finally the ambassador represented that
th latter part ot tbe aenteaca regarding
the continuance of th allianc of Oreat
Britain with Germany and Italy would
cause him embarrassment when submitted
to the Italian ambassador and tha Qsrmsn
minister. Mr. Bowen replied that he would
be only too glad to do anything that would
further th negotlationa and at one struck
out the objectionable clause, which road:
And it will occasion great aurprlso and
regret when it becomes known that Oreat
Britain has even proposed continuing its
present aJllance with Germany and Italy
one moment longer than it must.
With this on ehang the not wak. finally
transmitted by the French ambassador to
tha Italian and German embassies.
Many exchanges ar going on between
Washington and European eapltele a th
result o fth effort of th allied repre
sentative to prepare satisfactory protocols.
Tha task ot drawing up the document la
very complicated, owing to tb necessity
for providing against all eontlngenciea and
framing a sot of agreements for that set
tlement of th claWna thit will resist tbe
attacka of astute Internationa) lawyers.
Meanwhile, measages are passing be
tween Mr. Bowen and the allies' represent
atlvea ia an amicable manner and unUss
som nsw element is injected Into tbe
situation by tb allies (for Mr. Bowen
Y & 'DliwYI IT
regard hi cue as mad up) It Is ho
llered that the negotiations will proceed
to a successful conclusion.
