OMAHA. Oct. 4.-TO the Editor of The
Bee: I have taken your papT over twenty
years, but until recently nave not seen nn
rtlole on tainted monev received from the
sale of tonrage to trsnspqrtatlon lines at
less than published tariff rates, or what is
called rebates. At present the arrentln of
rebate Is prohibited by law and the pen-
aity is a fine or Imprisonment, or both.
Only recently four employes of a packing
nrm were lined ISWO for selling tonnage
the nrm to transportation lines below
le published tariff rates. While thru em.
ployes may have violated a law, they did
so believing such law was unjust, unlaw
ful and unconstitutional, also against the
we of trade and Drohlbltlna- all rnmiw.
The sale of tonnsa-e has alwava been
considered honest, even when the commerce
of the world was carried on the backs of
animals. ' For centuries the water wava
carried the bulk of the world's tonnage
which was a source of much nrnflt. Our
merchants bought their merchandise In the
various markets of the world and sold
their tonnage at a Droflt under tariff rates.
Our people also Sol their products In the
""'' vi me worm ana realized proiits.
This large commerce between the markets
of the world built up large citlee on the
ocean and gulf ciasts, the water routes
Iso controlled Interior ahlnnlna- until the
coming of the railroad, but before Its ar
rival large distributing points had been
DUIIt on the lakes and rivers controlling
Interior business. The railroads oommenced
to build from the coast and neglected to
build i their lines to Isolated places or to
what was known aa the great American
desert, but pointed directly to the cities
and distributing centers having tonnagu
to offer which was readlly-Tflten by the.
railroads at a profit to the seller, mil the
selling of tonnage to transportation lines
was considered honest until a few venra
ago congress passed a law maktna- the sale
of tonnage to transportation lines (at less
man published tariff rates) a crime mm.
I.ihnble by a fine or Imprisonment, or
If the Belling of tonnage Is a crime the
selling of all merchandise at a profit Is a
crime, if the courts have auatalpft the
law prohibiting the sale of tonnage under
regular larllT rates. 1 do not. believe the
facts were pronerlv nresented anil holiava
If properly presented this obnoxious law
wouia ne repealed. I believe the people
need a maximum rate law based, on present
rates, to alt sections aa these rate.
In the main satisfactory, and their adop
tion wouia not disturb the trade relations
existing between the sections Maim if
missable for transportation lines t lower
me rates nut not to raise them, appoint a
commission of five to "make nsmuni
change grhen absolutely needed, and that
transportation lines be compelled to place
changes In effect as soon as ordered. A law
or this kind would make honest and
healthycompetltlon and stability of rates
snd give mor confidence to the business in
terests of the entire eountrv it v
present tlm ther Is no competition In
rates, as tne government tells you to pay
tariff rates and If you accept less a flne
and prison are possible. It does not seem
a good law to put a stop to all competi
tion, but our present law does and further
ha had a tendency to make criminals of
many honest men.
How many man and firms having ton
nage to offer sine th present law be-"
came effective are entirely Innocent? I dp
not believe that t percent of ; all hav
ing tonnage for sale ,can prove that
they have not violated the law, and I do
not believe a single line of railroad can
prove It has not violated the law In some
manner. 8J If the government 1ntn.
do justice It must proceed against all busi
ness nrms without respect as to their busi
ness and very few will be found entirely
Nebraska needs the lowering of freights
and passenger rates. The Iowa distance
tariff would be about right for Nebraska.
Thi local Iowa rate are from BO to 100 per
Cent less than rates In Nebraska. Iowa
had about the sam population when It
distance tariff wa passed and the various
roads paid out a world of money to de
feat the pasage of the law. claiming It
would bankrupt all roads within the state.
But the roads have prospered and the law
has proved a great success to the people
and alo to th railroad. -
All business firms throughout the United
State understands the value of tonnage.
When the government will permit whole
some and legitimate competition In pas
senger and freight rates and permit ton
nage to be sold at the best price obtainable.
Our people some day will eleot a congress
that will pass mor law favorable to
them and less to railroads, but Just to all.
For the United State we need a maxi
mum rate taw that will permit of rate
being lowered but not raised, giving
all our people and the railroads honest and
Just competition which are barred by bad
law, choking all competition. Th people
have It In their power to elect to congress
those that will pass laws favorable to
them and also do Justice to all. Tours

CLAIMS STATE HAS NO SUCH RIGHTS
Morsman Bays Only New York.
Home of Company. Has Power
to Levy on Franchise
The Interjection of technicalities based
on legal points delayed the hearing of
Western Union officers by the city council
In the attempt made by the city legal de
partment and council to reassess the fran
chise of the telegraph company for 1904
and 19 Saturday morning. No evidence
had been taken up to 12 o'clock.
Attorney W. M. Morsman for the com
pany Insisted upon going Into the legal
phases of the esse first. After he and City
Attorney Breen had discussed the matter
from this standpoint for more than 'an
honr. Superintendent C. B. Horton of the
Western Union wis put on the stand. Be
fore he had contributed any Information
Attorney Morsman Interrupted with num
erous technical objections, which President
Zlmman of the council overruled on th
advice of the city attorney after they had
Heanlt of Conrt Decision.
The attempt to reassess 'the Western
Union's local franchise grow out of the
supreme court decision which declared un
constitutional the statutory provision fix
ing the value of local telegraph franchises
as the gross state receipt feurtng the year
preceding. By carrying the case up th
company saved paying taxes on an assess
ment of 116,000, amounting to about 1171
taxes for the year 1904. The 19 tax case
Is pending In the district court, but a the
same questions sre Involved there Is no
chance for anything but a like decision.
"We propose to show," said City Attorney
Breen, "that the Western Union has a
franchise In Omaha greatly In excess of
116,000 value. That the real value of all the
company property, tangible and Intangi
ble, li this city is not anything like $3.0no,
which the company returned for tanglMo
property, but nearer $50,000 or 175.000. We
hold that the value of the Omaha franchise,
based upon the proportion In relation to
the' value of the entire plant, I worth at
No Taxable Franchise Hero.
Mr. Morsman said the company's position
was that It had no franchise In Omaha or
Nebraska subject to taxation; that the cor
porate rights of the company were derived
In New York, which Is the only state that
has a right to tax It on franchises and th
right to occupy the streets, highways and
alleys derived from the post roads act by
congress. In this connection he" said the
city has no right to bar out or permit the
company to place pole lines on the -atreets
or alleys, and for this reason no grants are
conferred by the city and no compensation
can be asked In return.
In the afternoon Superintendent Horton
was examined aa to the earnings Tf th
company, tangible property In Omaha Jn
detail and along lines tending to show the
actual Investment here artd the returns
produced by business of all kinds. As the
corporation lawyers wanted to make ex
tended arguments the hearing went over

OMAHA HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
The Prtscllla Alden society held a meet
ing Friday "afternoon. The program cen
tered about the life and works of Thomas
Nelson Page, an American novelist bf some
note. vera Hayes opened the program
with a reading -of "No Hatd Pawn." This
was criticised by Ruth Best In an able
manner. The author was the subject of a
well written esuay by Irene McKnighl.
after which Jessie Harris read entertain
ingly "Unc Edinburgh Drowndlng. ' A
slight deviation from the central theme
was made when Dorothy Phillips recited
'Flshln'," by John Whltcomb KUey. On
the whole, the program proved to be a
source of much enjoyment.
The Margaret Fuller society rendered a
quaint and amusing program Friday after
noon, -rne original manner in which the
new members were initiated proved to be
a source of much merriment. In the man
ner of presentation it suggested the witch
scene in "Macbeth" to such 'as were fa
miliar with it. The program was closed
with a violin and Dlano solo by Caroline
Conklln and Edith Carson respectively, and
two recitations, one by Warua Bcott and
another by Grace Kohrbough.
The Llnlnger Travel club postponed one
wet-k the program which It had Intended
to present Friday afternoon. The post
ponement was caused by the demands
made upon the members during th fall
festival, which prevented their giving th
prograti) much consideration.
The Demosth.nian Debating society spent
a profitable afternoon Friday. Mr. Brace
len, former Instructor in debating, but now
mantger of debating, aside from his duties
aa instructor of history, gave some very
valuable and practical thoughta upon the
art of debating. He dwelt at some length
upon the necessity of careful preparation
of the debatable question, the logical ar
rangements of all the points to be consid
ered, the necessity of proving all fact and
statements that are not patent to every
one, and the requirement o aa good a de
livery as possible to be obtained by hard
practice. Gilbert Barnes followed with an
essay on "The Growth of Socialism," after
which the president, Harold Thorn,- deliv
ered an oration on the theme, "Public
Schools and Education," At the cqnoluslon
of the program, the society Indulged In
the usual competitive parliamentary drill,
with George VVeidenfeld In the chair.
James Whltcomb . Riley, the popular
American poet, was the 'central them
around which the program of the Haw
thorne society waa woven Friday after
noon. Sarah Shearer recited "That Old
Sweetheart of Mine." Richie Clark de
lighted her audience by a well rendered
piano soio. ' uun to OKI Aunt Mary s
was entertainingly recited by Lavlna
Shorter. Lucy Dietrlrk rendered In an ex
cellent manner "Air Varle" on the violin,
"Pa's, Romance" was well read by Helen
Monroe. Marlon Cochran recited ably
"GriKjsby's Station." "There, Little Girl.
Don'tf fry." was the title of a sweet little
song by Ixra Fuller. Alfreda Powell re
cited in an enjoyable manner "Our Hired
lrl." "The Bear Story" wa entertain
ingly read by Miss Peterson. Miss Towne,
in closing, delighted her audience with a
selection from "Chopin Eludes," on the
The Browning society had a program
Friday afternoon which was decidedly local
In interest and novel In its nature. The
fall festivities of Ak-Sar-Bcn wa th

dlscusnlon was made by Margaret Phllllppl
and Huth Byers on the question, "street
Fairs or Not Street Fairs" In closing.
The Pleiades society met practically for
