DISCUSS TIIE REVENUE LAW
General Opinion Its Success Depends Upon
POLICE BOARD OUT OF LICENSE QUESTION
Doctors Have a Warm Dlscnsslon
Over l'e of Manor by Mem
bers of the Pro
fesslon. (From a Staff Correpondent.)
LINCOLN. April 29. (Special.) Various
taxpayers from out In the state who have
been at the capital lately are very much
Interested In the workings of the new rev
enue law. It Is the genersl Impression
that If the State Board of Equalization
does Its duty the revenue measure will
meet all the requirements that are ex-
ptcLd ci li. Nearly an 01 mem nave put
the proposition up to the stste board.
And this has caused considerable specu
lation as to whf t the present state board
wilt do when It meets. This present board
is composed of Governor Mickey, Treasurer
Mortensen and Auditor Weston. In an in
terview during the week the revenue com
mittee was framing the new bill. Treas
urer Mor'ensen stated that he was for tax
ing railroads just the same as any other
property, for city purposes and everything
else. Auditor Weston was on the board
last year that allowed the railroads to es
cape the payment of so much taxes. This
will leave the matter up to Governor
Mickey as to whether or not Omaha will be
allowed to tax the railroad terminals for
city purposes and as to whether the rail
roads will be allowed to escape tbelr taxes.
Recently Governor Mickey said he was In
favor of the passage of a revenue bill In
accordance with the constitution. He was
In favor, he said, of taxing railroads and
corporations and everything along the lines
of the constitution. On the taxation ques
tion the constitution says: "The legisla
ture shall provide such revenue as may be
needful by levying a tax by valuation, ao
that every person and corporation shall pay
a tax In proportion to the value of his, her
or Its property and franchises, the value to
be ascertained In such a manner as the leg
islature shall direct." 1
It is the Impression of those visiting the
capital that If Governor Mickey follows
out the plan of the constitution the taxes
of the railroads will be materially Increased
at the next meeting of the State Board of
Coaaell Passes on Llceaaes.
The governor-appointed police board of
South Omaha will not grant liquor licenses
this May. The city council, which has
heretofore attended to thU little detail
of the city's business, will continue to do
It at least this one time more. Tbe new
board will have power to appoint policemen
and firemen, but It will have nothing to do
with the saloonmen's license. This by
reason of the fact that bouse roll 386, the
bill that creates the board and gives It
the power to grant liquor licenses, did not
pass the legislature with the emergency
clause attached. Therefore the bill will
not become operative until July, or ninety
days after its passage, and in the mean
time, on May 1. the city council will have
acted on the liquor license applications.
The fact that the bill failed to pass with
the emergency clause Is plainly shown by
the records of the house, notwithstanding
the enrolled bill now in the office of th-j
secretary of state has the emergency clause.
Whether intentional or not, a blunder was
made In the houss engrossing room and
the emergency clause was added." On the
engrossed bill notations are made to the
effect that the emergency clause had been
stricken off, and to make It more plain
the emergency clause at the end of tbe bill
is scratched off with red Ink. Assistant
Chief Clerk Barnard said that the .mistake
was absolutely Inexcusable and could not
have been other than the result of any
thing but the grossest carelessness.
House roll 267, the South Omaha charter
bill, provided for the governor-appointed
police commission, but It did not delegate
to the board tbe authority to grant liquor
licenses. To remedy this bouse roll 386,
creating tEe board and giving It the author
ity to regulate the liquor licenses, was
introduced. The original bill had attached
to It the emergency clause. The vote was
taken April 4 and It stood 67 to 25 against.
The notations on the bill show that as It
had failed to receive the required two
thirds constitutional majority, it had failed
to pass with the emergency clause. Gil
bert of Douglas then moved that the emer
gency clause be stricken oft and tbe bill
was passed by the house by a vote of 56
to 19. To pass with the emergency clause
It would have been necessary for sixty-six
members of tbe bouse to Lave voted In the
City Attorney Mwrdock of South Omaha
was here todsy and secured a copy of the
records In the case. He la representing
the city council of South Omaha and this
body expects to prevent the police board
from having a hand In the liquor license
question this year. ,
Doetora Disease Llsjaor.
At the nesting of the State Medical so
ciety this morning it wasn't the startling
discovery that baby elephants weigh a ton
that created the consternation; no one re
ported that a section hand had the perityph
lic; It wasn't a new way to collect bills;
but It waa just plain, every-day "red-eye,"
and the doctor s Indulgence therein that
did the business, and for many mlnutee
the debate waxed warm and to the point.
It all came about over the declaration of
Dr. Incs G. Phllbrlck. from Omaha of
course. The doctor waa delivering a paper
on "The Social Side of Pediatrics," which
to the uninitiated Is that branch of med
ical science which treats of the hygiene
and the dlseaaes of children that Is
"pediatrics" means that. Tbe speaker had
told that the school teachers throughout
the country were doing noble work in teach
ing the children the evil effects of alcohol.
"But." she said, "the Influence of these
teachers, while considerable. Is certainly
offset by tbe notorious example aet by a
large number of tbe profession in their
private and public uae of intoxicants."
This brought to his feet Dr. Von Msns-
felde of Ashland, who probably has his
wife with him, and he vehemently denied
the statement. He denied emphatically
that phytlcluDs get drunk; he denied that
they used Intoxicants publicly or prlvstely
to excesa. He wanted that part of the
speech stricken from the records.
Drs. Moore, Johnson, Towne, Smith and
Banders then got la the game, aa tbe cause
of the trouble sat unmoved and. Impassive,
they fought it out. One of them. In the
excitement, stated that he had seen a phy
slcian ao full at one of the state meetings
that he couldn't navigate, or worda to that
effect, and he ao far forgot himself that
he named tbe man. The gentleman from
Ashland again got tbe floor and he ahouted
long and lustlW that no names be spoken.
Things were getting exciting at this time,
because It was not known where the list
would end If names were used. To pre
vent this calamity someone called for 1
vote and Dr. Ines C. Phllbrlck of Omaha
won out and all she said went In the rec

AN IRISHMAN'S OBJEC
An Irishman once stopped at a
hotel for dinner. The principal
food was hash. Pat surveyed it
for a few moments ruefully, and
then exclaimed, " Bedad, the man
that chawed it can ate it."
Pat's objection to the food was
based upon the general antipathy
against eating anything that has
been handled by others.
In the early days of the race,
each man procured his own pro
vision, and was his own cook.
With the dawn of civilization, one
prepares the food for others to eat.
More now than ever prepared foods
are used and relished. Yet there
is no doubt that with the careful
inspection of all food required by
the State, people now live on purer
food than did their forefathers.
This is especially true when one
eats MALT-TOO FLAKES, which
is almost wholly prepared by ma
chinery. Human hands scarcely
come in contact with it. In pre
paring this food, choice wheat is
selected. It is first scoured until
the outer husk and all dirt are
removed. Then' it is thoroughly
cooked, crushed into flakes, and
browned to a crisp. This gives it
the delicious, natural taste of the
grain which one notices.
No deleterious substance is used.

milk, cream, or fruit juice, makes

Sends a Special Message to the Lea-ls-tatarey
Which la Regarded as
aa Exhaustive Treatise
n the Subject.
MADISON. Wis., April 29. Governor La
follette sent a special message to the leg
islature today on the freight commission
bill. It is tbe most exhaustive treatise
upon the subject , of railroad rate charges
ever compiled, comprising 118 pages, and Is
Intended to refute the statements and argu
ments that were made by railroad men and
agents before the general sssembly com
mittee. The message says:
If the legislatures of Illinois or Iowa
have given to the people of those states
laws which enable them to secure ratea
lower than the Wisconsin rates for like
ervlcea, then the people of VI.junbln are
wronged, and It Is the duty of the legisla
ture to remedy that wrong. .These consid
erations furnlnh the strongest reasons for
critical examination and compurlaun of
transportation charges In and between Wis
consin, Iowa and Illinois.
A comparison of rates on cattle to Chi
cago and Milwaukee from points In Wis
consin, distances In both cases being about
the same, shows Milwaukee to pay an ex
cess of 26.9 per cent.
Comparison of Rates.
A comparlaon of rates on grain from
points In Wisconsin to Milwaukee with
ratea from polnta III Iowa to the Missis
sippi river, distances being similar, shows
the percentage of exi-ess for Wisconsin,
wheat 17.8; coarse grains 34. 2.
The average rate for ten claases of gen
eral merchandise in a comparison of rates
prevailing In Iowa and Wisconsin ahowa
Wisconsin's rate to be 18 centa per 1
pounds, as sgalnst 1410 for Iowa, or an
excess for Wisconsin of 82.34.
Figured on what Is known as the ton
mile basis, the average rate on general
merchandise Is 2.921 centa for Wisconsin
and 2.162 per ton mile for Iowa, showing
an excess or overcharge for Wisconsin
amounting to 85.11 per cent.
For agricultural Implements there are
fourteen comparisons, and the average for
these shows that the ratea in Wisconsin
were (.39 per cent higher than In Iowa.
