HAS LATTER ON RACK IN TAX HEARING thief EaeetlTa DUpaaalanataly Ki- plalna How State Board Ar ' rived at the Valaatloa . ef the Rallreada, Tpon your oath as governor had you not sworn In 1908 to return the propeny of the railroads at Its full value and have you not already testified that the property was assessed at from ons-flfteenth to one fourth of Its valuer' His massive form towering above that ft the chief executive of the state, who was seated, shaking his ringer menacingly In the fare of John H. Mickey. John N. Bald win, attorney for the Union Pacific Rail- ' road company, thundered this question at the governor Friday morning In the hear- i Ing before Special Examiner Pearsall at I the federal building, where the Cnlon Fa clflc la trying to evade the payment of state taxes levied under ths assessment ' fixed by the State Board of Equalisation and Assessment. Mr. Baldwin again became demonstrative In his attitude toward the governor when i the latter hesitated to answer certain ques tions put by the railroad's attorney. Bald win characterised 'he governor's action as "highly Improper" and threatened to bring him to submission If necessary, later In a court trial. fieveroor Rlcldly Examined. The governor was subjected to a most rigid examination by the Union Pacific at torney. John N. Baldwin. He aald "We took into consideration the stock and bond Issues of the Union Pacific roid In arriving at the valuation. I made my own estimates, and the valuation, as I re member, was fixed at btween tSO.IU) and t!,000 per mile, but the board returned the assessable valuation at SS5.000 per milt after making what was deemed fair deduc tion. This estimate was made up from the annual report of the Union Pacific for li. and we made our computations from that report and Poor's manual and Clews' manual, which were corroborative of the railroad's report. The finding was made on the basis of the tangible property of the road by the different members of the beard and in accord with the Weston resolution. I know of no other statement aside from that of Sttt.S74. filed by the railroad as Its estimate of the value of the property of the road. The board In creased this amount to STQMT1.59. and It was based upon the Insurable value of the property, as stated to the hoard by 'iax Commissioner Scrlbner. Thonaht Valaatloa Low. "It looked to me as If the road had made a low valuation on ita property. This latu r amount la what the boatd agreed to. It was arbitrary In the aense that we did not do what the railroad wanted us to, as regards Its tangible and Intangible property. Mr. Scribned a statement to the board was Ui4 U.s tangible fttcperty as Insured to about three-fourths of Its value and we had nothing but his statement and report to work upon. "I did not say that the tools of the road were Insured, and do not know that they were. The Increase made by the board was. In Its opinion. Justifiable. The rolling stock was Increased from t3,028,0G9 to S3.785. 086.25. We had evidence sufficient to war rant us tn making this advance." The governor was then shown an exhibit marked 74. which purported to be a memor anda agreement of the aggregate assess ments fy the board and he was asked to Quote from the figures therein. The gover nor was somewhat reticent as to quoting from these figures and Mr. Baldwin pro tefted against the "apparent evasion" and characterized the witness' conduct as "highly improper." and that "if he did not answer here he would be required to answer before the court." The governor finally read from the ex hibit, but fortified his reading with frequent references to the record. Denies Mahlna Threat. Tn reference to the grand assessment roll. Governor Mickey said: "I did not say thst 1 1 would see to It that the grand asses- men t roll would be Increased to M,0u0,0i1 on all property in the state. Nor did I have any such conversation with Mr. Kelly In the Millard hotel. The Increase of valua tions or aasesments In the stats In 14 was made by different assessors and the state board has nothing to do with It. All we did wss to assess the rsilroads We as sessed no other property. The law did not require us to take other property Into consideration. " The matter of the assessment of the buMd Ings of the railroads was gone Into at length. A valuation of ?S per cent was made to that submitted by Tax Commis sioner Fi-rlhner. making an Increase of $J 4 - ' 5'. rWI on the main llnrs and corresponding I Increases on the Omaha & Republican Val- ley branch and the Kearney and Rla.-k Hills branch 1 Continuing the governor said: "We did not assess the franchise of the rullmnr car company, because e could nrt say It had a franchise. However, we ;d assess It on the tolls charged by It In !:e state. The statute did not require us to .ssesa the franchise of the Pullman com pany or other private car lines. We did not insider he probability of these private car lines as being declared operated under franchises We relied upon the reports of these private car lines as fixing a basis for csessmr.t ar.d followed the statutes to the letter. The matter of the uniformity of the ".ssessment of the Pullman company with that of the Union Picific was not considered by the board Nr tiling was done In this matter until the time came.f"r equalisation. Rose Hammond Ges Aasloas. "I did have a conversation with Ross L. Hammond on the day of the state conven tion. May It. 14. and rfnld hint that the railroad assessment had not yet been mad, but that it would be about Stf. '.): that the work of the board had not yet been completed, aa we were still seeking further Information relative to the stock and bonds preposition, reports of which were not la yet. I think he named to know as well as the railroads Just what was being done. The board was bet wees to fires and was being pcinded by the railroads. The Bee and the World-Herajd the Lincoln News and iLe Fremonl Tribune 1 Unafe 'Jjit were all demanding a great deal. The pub lic was not Informed of what the assess, ment would be until In June, I believe, or some time after the state convention. I bad no conversation with Mr. Bennett (secre tary of the board) and I do not at this time recall what The Bee or Mr. Rosewater said. "The value of railroad property was fixed by the board In 1903 at 16.000.000 In round numbers and In 1904 at $10,676,609 . We were sworn to fix the actual value In 1902. but merely followed the long established precedent. In 1904 we followed the strict letter of the law. The l'n(on Pacific said that ths assessment- of 1908 was fair." The governor's statement as given here was not made continuously, but mostly In reply to Baldwin's questions, as, for , In stance, when the governor said he did not recall what The Bee or Mr. Rosewater had said. Then Tlaldwla Warmi I p. Mr. Baldwin then approached the gov ernor with his warning finger raised and asked him In thundering tones: "Upon your oath as governor had you I not sworn In 19a to return the property of the railroads at ita full value and have you not already testified that the property was assessed at but from one-fifteenth to one-fourth of Its value?" The governor replied: "I suppose that we did violate the law then because of ths long established prece dent In fixing railroad valuations. I had a talk with Mr. Kelly of your road and he favored the revised valuation of ths road and said he would do his part. In 19M we sssessed ths property at Its full value un dr the law. It Is true there was a slight Increase in the valuation of the property over 1908. - But the assessment of 1S4 had nothing whatever to do with the assessment of lva When we came to the assessment of I'M we did not pay any attention to the t.uesticn of uniformity." Attorney General Begins. This concluded the direct examination of Governor Mickey and Attorney Genersl Brown then proceeded to the cross-examination He asked him In reference to his understand. ng of the meaning of tangible and Intangible property In order to correct a misunderstanding of a question put to him Thursday morning. The governor slated that the board was In seasion six weeks in 1904 on the railroad assessment and there were present Messrs. Kelly and Si rlbner of the Union Pacific road and representatives of other roads. The matter Of railroad asseasment was discussed and argued thoroughly by the representatives of the railroads He said: "There was no effort to separate the franchise value from the tangible value. , I figured that the net earnings were over 15.500 per mils, and we left the general valuation at 65,0OO per mila Each of the three propositions, tangible. Intangible and stocks and bonds property were considered as factora In the making up of ths general estimate. We did not aaseas any property outside the suite and nons which was lo cally attached." ' The cross-examination of she governor was to show that the road was actually undervalued and that the action of the state board was fair, legitimate and equi tably The governor did not conclude his testimony until 1 o clock Friday afternoon. No other witnesses being present the hearing was continued over until next i wtaa Secj-tuxr at C'.aie Margb, ax- Land Commissioner Follmer and Secretary Bennett will be called upon to testify. Governor Mickey returned to Lincoln Fri day afternoon. Attorney General Norrls Brown also returned to Lincoln Friday afternoon.

Another court controversy may be re quired to settle it. No democratic candidates for members of the Board of Education filed their names for ths primary ballot and as a result only a republican school board ticket was chosen at the primary. In order not to let the matter go by default and thus admit the Impossibility of electing democrats to the board leaders of that party who will have control of the machinery In the fall cam paign propose to have the county com mittee fill the vacancies on the ticket, not only for the school board, but for justices of the peace and constables; also placea on the county committee for which there were no candidates at the primary. Elbonrn Tone Liown. When the city clerk was approached re garding the school board nominees he flatly declined to entertain a notion of putting the names of five democrats on the general election ballot. After consid erable argument, however, he changed his assertion to "he did not think" he would accept the nominations of the committee. He announced that he proposed to go Into the subet thoroughly tefore finally de ciding. "The Podge law makes no provision for nomination s other than those made in tha primaries," said the clerk. "I take it that the intent of the law Is to bar out any man who did not present his .andldacy to the people st the primary election. If a candidate did not file in the prescribed way he lost his chances of getting on the bal lot, that's all. If the democrats ran do1 this why can't the socialists, or any other party that casts 1 per cent or more of the total vote? Why Is It necessary for the socialists to carry the case Into court and to try to get the Dodge law knocked out on constitutional grounds? Aa I un derstand It. their aole complaint la that the filing fees for the primaries are pro hibitive to poor men who have to bear their own political expenses. I do not see where any authority exists for allowing nominations by county committees or In any other way except by primaries." What Heramaa Says. Deputy Comptroller Tosgrove aays: "I have gone over this matter with As sistant City Attorney Herdman and other lawyers and they have assured me there is nothing to prevent vacancies on the ticket to be filled by nomination of the county committees, provided that the places have not beeu contested for at the primaries. If they have been contested for the winner has a cinch on the nomination. There Is no gainsaying that. The democrats did not Uvis aseol jKr4 Welti la tUt field, a4 only one out of six Justices and no con stables. It Is our Intention of going ahead and filling all these vacancies Just as soon aa the new county committee Is organized. The organization will not take place until after the votes have been officially can vassed." There is little doubt but that Cosgrove will be selected as chairman of the demo cratic county committee. He has not sought the place, but his name Is most fre quently mentioned in connection. He man aged the successful Hitchcock congres sional campaign and that which landed so many democrats In county offices two years ago. Personally he Is willing to take up the work If a majority of the committee wants him to do so. H. S. Daniel will be the new committee's secre tary, having vanquished the opposition that manifested Itself toward him. Dave O'Brien Kays Kay. The democrats sppear to fce all at sea over the vacancies on the ticket. -( Chair man A. A. Arter of the last democratic county committee Is at present out of town. He is expected to be home within a day or two, and then probably will rail a meeting of the committee for organiza tion. More Important than the organiza tion, however, will be the selection of can didates to go on the ticket to fill vacancies. Principal among the positions that are talked of among the rank and file of the democracy Is that of county commissioner for the Fifth district, at present repre sented by Henry McDonald. In the pri maries William G. Ure. the republican candidate, received such a large vote that the democats are at their wits' ends to find an opponent who will have any chance. Dave O'Brien has been approached, but he will not l.sten Neither will City Comp t roller lyibeck. who hss been picked by a certain element on the theory of nationality. Mr Lobeck. so his friends say. is not at all anxious to be one of a forlorn hope, and it is understood he has declared that he mill not undertake a canvass against Mr. Ure Everything in this line, however, de pends upon th action to be taken by the democratic county committee. The old war horses of the party who went away to Lincoln and failed John Poser after they had persuaded him to run for a fourth term, are now park from Lincoln and use less platform making, and they will most likely get very busy within the next few daya It Is expected that by Monday the county committee will be called In session to act on the divers and sundrv perplexing questions that are now faclr.g them festivities. For the big parade of Thurs day night the Burlington will run special trains, one leaving Lincoln about 6.3u and leaving Omaha about 10:15, after the parades are finished.
