LINCOLN. Sept. 15. Special. ) In con
formity with the declaration of the re
publican state convention yesterday that
free transportation was detrimental to the
best Interests of the people, a number of
state officers today returned their 'an
nuals" which they accepted as "courtesies'"
at the beginning of their terms of office.
Governor Mickey and Attorney General
Brown first mailed out all of theirs before
noon, with each sending a nice note of
thanks for the favors, but giving no rea
sons why they were returned. Superin
tendent McBrlen will return the passes held
by him and his deputy. Mr. Bishop, before
the end of the week. Land Commissioner
Eaton will follow suit, he states, while
Treasurer Mortenen has already lost his
through the Intervention of a burglar.
Auditor Searle Is out of the city and Sec
retary of State Oalusha said there had
been no appropriation for traveling ex
penses In his office and that he did not
think It wise to create a deficiency. Until
the next legislature makes an appropria
tion to pay traveling expenses he wilt use
his pass when traveling on state business.
"A republican convention has declared
against the pass and I have returned mine
to the railroads," said Governor Mickey.
"I shall In the future pay my own railroad
fare. I think It my duty to act In accord
ance with the wishes of the republican
party In this matter. The democrats re-
solved and did nothing. We will carry on
Attorney General Brown said: "The sin
cerity of the republican party In this mat
ter will be Judged by the action of the re
publican officials, so I have returned to the
railroads the passes which they sent me."
The action of the convention will seri
ously cripple the office of the state super
intendent, as the superintendent and his
deputy do more traveling than any other
state officers In visiting county Institutes
"When our appropriation was made last
winter," said Mr. McBrlen. "It was done
under the Impression that we would not
have to pay railroad fare, so I cut down
the appropriation $1,000 from the year be
fore. In fact, our appropriation Is less
than It was twenty-five years ago. It will
be necessary now for any school or Insti
tution that asks for one of us to visit it to
pay our actual expenses, including railroad
fare, for I do not Intend to have a de
ficiency. During the last five years had we
paid our railroad fare it would have cost
the state at least $3,000 a year. However,
the republican state convention has spoken;
I have heard the voice and I shall hearken
unto It. My passes and the passes held
by Mr. Bishop will be returned today or
May Call LeaUlntore.

may be that Governor Mickey will put the

strike while the Iron Is hot and get some

from there to Glasgow by a good per cent.
Among the men who called upon the gov

people and the question Is being seriously
considered by the governor. As the mem

same men who made uch a farce of rail

that Governor Mickey hesitates to call
them together again for fear of a repe
