EVADES RECEIVERSHIP BY SO DOING
City AMrny Wright Determine to

tate, to Make Fall
The Missouri ' Pacific Railway company
has decided that It does not care to have
It. Omaha Belt line operated by the mu
nicipality and has paid $2,4W Into the city
treasury as a result of thi. decision. The
line owed the city 11,60 taxes for the
present year, but declined to pay more than
$1, 100 of them, on the grounds that Its
trackage was assessed at a higher rate
than the other railroads In the county.
It was held that the valuation tlxed by
the county was fatr and Just and that the
city'. Increase worked a discrlm. nation. In
asmuch at the Belt line i. wholly within
the county, the contention of the larger
transportation companies that the local
taxing authorities should conform to the
figure, of the State Board of Equalization
had nothing to do with the case.
The tax commissioner of the Missouri
Pacific came to Omaha with authority ti
pay the full amount of city taxes. After
some Investigation, however, he decided
that he saw a chance to save the road sev
eral thousand dollars, and hence paid only
a part of the full amount.
Aron.es City Attorney.
This process aroused the indignation of
City Attorney Wright and he secured au
thority from the council to bring suit
against the line for the appointment of a
receiver to collect the tax. Inasmuch a.
the road had no personal property within
the city limit, none could be seised and
tills was the only mode of procedure that
the city legal department could devise. It
wa. proposed to have the receiver operate
the p.elt Utn and collect tolls for traffic
until the indebtedness to the city was
Information of the plan reached the gen
eral office, of the Missouri Pacific through
the newspaper, and the next day Attor
ney Wright received three telegram beg
ging him to delay filing pnpers In the suit
until further consideration could be given

II attributes his failure to Mr. Thompson
and his friends, and he waa heard to Bay
at Lincoln that he would yet get even with
Mr. Thompson and jab a knifa into him
politically. Just how tha Beatrice postoffl.ee

cannot eee. Colonel W. H. Edgar, formet

Thompson and antl-Tliompson U.ues were
