Despite tb art that tnere waa no no
and not a great deal of wind la the middle
treat Bud flay and Sunday night, all train
about thia part of the country were delayed
by the cold. The low temperature alone
wa sufficient to make service late in all
directions, regardless of tb course of the
wind. Sunday night u tbe coldest of the
year ao far, and though there were no ac
tual obstructions to renin stock, the fi
treme frlglty a crippled the motive power
that th result waa quite aa aenoua in mak
ing trains late aa waa the blirtsrd and
snowstorm of tea day ago.
Boiler were cooled to an alarming ex
tent, despite tb moat heroic efforta to
keep them up to tbe beat required for
cbedu)e speed. Tbe temperature proved
itself maater of tbe firebox and engine
crew simply had to give tip and art over
the road tba beat tbey could. Tbe rails
were fronted worse than any previous time
thia winter, and that waa another great
drawback to traffic. Had there been a bad
wind or enow with tbe unusual cold tbe de
lays would have been far more extensive.

LINCOLN. Feb. If i Special. ) At last
the reveriu? bill is completed. At least Jt
la completed by tbe suhcottittiiitee that waa
appoitted by tbe )oict committee for the
purpose of rmrplllng the measure. The
subcommittee turned tbe bill over to tb
large committee tonight and tomorrow all
tbe ypi leroen those of the stih and mala
committees meet to discuss the work that
has been done. It is not believed the bill
win undergo many if any material change
at tbe hand of tbe mam committee. Vet
it does not look as if the measure would
be introduced for some day, as some of
the members say tbey vast ample ilme la
whirb to study the product or tbrir labors
before finally launching it on tb uncer
tain vcyace of tbr legislature. Douglas of
Rock today remarked tbat be would Ifks
to spend three or four daya In reviesing

operator of grain elevators, asked, "What
Senator Brady, Boone county, replied:
"I will answer thBt question by relating
a personal experience. 1 happened to be
in the emce of the Omaha Elevator com-
pany at Aimon one day when s larmer

Tun be could not buy. After the
farmer drove away 1 asked tbe manager if
bla elevator really waa full.
" Oh, no. he replied, 'but thia not trur

Tbe opjKislte to that would, in ay judg
ment, be competition."
This colloquy look place tonight before
tbe Joint house and senate railroad com
mittee in a hearing on th bllla te enable
farmers te engage in tbe elevator business
on a co-operative basis.
Ramsey of Gage la author of H. R. 79,
tbe otner bill. The purpose of Mr. Schnei
der's question waa te show that tb ecnsaoa '
oould only result In Destroying om peti
tion snd the pungent reply kad' taa de
aired effect of indicating that there was
something of s combine atnontr tb elevator
men. This dialogue, therefore, fairly art
forth tbe main Ibsuos to tbe controversy.
Mr. Schneider, with T. D. Warrell of
Lincoln. Mayor Mile and W. H. Fergu
son of Hastings, represented th elevator
men' side of tbe case,
Tbe Brady bill i very brief. It simply
provide that farmers Toe allowed to erect
grain elevator on railroad rights-of-way
st s cost of not less than trt.OOO and that
tbe railroad construct a suitable side
track to esch elevator after tb latter 1
built. It contains a clause Imposing a
forfeit of 11,00(1 upon railroads falling to
comply with the provision of tbe Mil
witting sixty days after ft enactment. Tbe .
Ramsey bill asks that railroads furnish toot
only sidetrack, but terminal tarflttiM at
all large point te th farmer for elevators -of
TM'OO bushel capacity a dsy, oostlng '
Indications are thai tbe Brady bfll will
be given precedence by the committee over
tb Ramsey bill. Senator Brady hss as
surances of substantial support for till
measure from member ot tbe senste.
Representative Ramsey, In his statement,
said: "Tb elevator combine makes from
I to 7 cents a busbel profit on the grain it
handles. Th railroad discriminate tn )
favor of tbem. The Idea of my bill ts to
adjust matter so the farmer who rets
tbe grain may sell It- I think an elevator
of 8,(100 bushela a day capacity, oosiftnx '
t;,2D0, would meet our tie da. Budh aa
elevator projierly conducted ought to
handle I',. Mm bushel of grain a day It :
necessary. I believe tbat If auy bin pass, I
Jt will never be necessary ta bullfl an-
other farmers' elevator, because of the re- i
straining influence tbe bill will base oa I
tbe elevator combine,"
nesasvaaa JEaa1 Blatkta.
Senator Brady said: "My bin aimpty Aa- ,
mands th same right te tbe farmar tbat
other enjoy. It seek to imulM rather
ttllLB OfHroj competition. It Is not tn
resuK ot . political movement, aa bss been
charged, but tbe rcsjionae te a general fte
mand among farmer." '
Messrs. Schneider, Warrall and Fsrg-u- i
ana argued that multiplying the number of '
elevators, as tbeac bills contemplated,

! there were now all tbe elevator neeeaaary

"Tbr farmer want te sell hi own grain

In business against such a combdna aa

"A strong elevator combine ought ta be
