(From a Stuff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March J. (Special.) A brief
was filed this afternoon In oenair or ine
Tloyal Highlanders to prevent the taxation
of their reserve fund. The, lower court of
Hamilton county decided against the order.
The ordpr claim exemption from taxation
on the following grounds:
1. The entire property sought to be here
taxed Is "used exclusively for charitable
Z. The legislative and executive neparr-
mente continuously and without question
for thirty years since the adoption of our
constitution, and und-r the Identical statute
now In force, construed that constitution
and statute to exempt from taxation the
property or rralernal riencnciary associa
tions used exclusively for the purpose of
said association, and such construction and
exposition Is conclusively binding both upon
tha stare and trie courts.
. The anoellsnt. in arriving at tne
amount of the credits. If any. which It wsa
required to return for taxation, nan me
right to take an account of Its business
and deduct Its outstanding liability from
the amount of the Item listed in ciaasea
3 and 4.
In the argument In aupport of their con
tention the attorney for the lodge aay
among other thing:
The question here presented to the court
Is a,, new one. Never, so fr as we are able
to ascertain, has any slate prior to the
year lf6 made any attempt to tax tha
mortuary funds of a fraternal beneflclary
association. Nebraska enjoy the unique
distinction of being the pioneer In thla
movement. No other state hna thua far
seen fit to follow It lead. On the con
trary, our sister states have proceeded on
the rational theory that the provision made
by these societies Is the best possible pro
tection for the dependent a provident safe
guard against a day of certain disaster;
that It Is the greatest aid to the state yet
devised to reduce to a minimum poverty,
dependence and crime, and for these reasons
merits ana should receive all possioie en
couragement from the state.
. Xebrnslcn Waits on Ordnance,
Oovernor Mickey this morning received a
letter from Moran Brother, builder of
the battleship Nebraska, stating the con
tractors could not tell when the hlp would
be ready for commission. The governor
some time ago wrote to the firm asking
when the ship would be ready for commls.
slon and the letter received this, morning
waa In reply to that. The reason no data
can be fixed, the letter stated, was be
cause the government ha to furnish the
ordnance material, and there is no telling
when thla will be ready for the vessel.
Were the material on the ground now, the
letter stated, the vessel could be finished
within six months.
Good Times for Treasury
Based on the amount of money Invested
the last three month have been the beat
for the state treasury In the history of the
state. During that time Treasurer- Mor
tenson ha Invested 1704,000. against (232.000
invested for the same period "Inat year.
Today $50,000 In warrant was taken up by
the treasurer. ITnder the provisions of the
Sheldon Mil enacted Into law by the late
legislature there ha been collected $115,000,
and thla sum represents a portion of the
big Investments. .
Notwithstanding this enormous amount
of money Invested, which seems to indi
cate a large amount of prosperity, tha
state debt still hovers around the $2,000,000
mark, with little Indication of any material
reduction during the year... About tho-time
the bills contracted by the last legislature
are all paid up then another legislature
will begin, and thus there will be more
bill to pay. - ' .

HARRY COHN LIKES , ALASKA
Omaha Mas Retara to Kebraaka with
Body of Edaaaad V. Harlaa
Assistant United States Attorney Harry
L. Colin, formerly of Omaha, but now
stationed at Fairbanks, Alaska, arrived
In Omaha Wednesday morning. Mr. Cohn
made the trip across the snow. and lea from
Fairbanks to Valdes, Alaska, starting
February 23- Arriving in Vades he found
Edmund V. Harlan, son of Judge N. V.
Harlan seriously 111, later dying. Mr. Cohn
accompanied Judge Harlan and the body
to York, Neb.
Mr. Cohn Is Quite enthusiastic over
Alaska. To a reporter for The Bee he said:
"People In the middle and eastern state
do not know what a wonderful country
we have up in Alaska. Almost every In
dustry tf any part of the world Is to be
found some place within the territory: Of
course the principal Industry Is that of
mining, but all forms of vegetation are
being produced. Right now those In the
Interior, such as at Fairbanks, whera I am
stationed, are greatly Interested over the
prospect of a railroad penetrating the In
terior. You see, during the winter months,
when the Tukon river I frosen, it Is a
terrible hardship to attempt to go to the
outside. I crossed 40fff miles of snow and
Ice to reach here. The railroad will obviate
all this trouble. . :
There Is more or less excitement there
now over the possibility of the territory
dr district' having a voice In congress.
Heretofore, you know, we have been unrep
resented in Washington. The delegate bill
will greatly aid tha district.
Candidate for this place are looming
up already. However, queer as it may seem
to you here where politics Is quite bitter
at times, in all probability the contest for
the place will not be along political lines.
More probable it 1 that the different lo
calities will place in the field a candidate.
and the locality having the largest popu
lation will succeed in having Its man
elected. In this way the people there are
quite partisan, taking great pride in their
separate localities. I
Fairbanks Is the leading town of Alaska
now. its output of gold for lu6 waa the
largest tn the history of Alaska, with tha
exception of tha early years of Dawson.
Dawson, however, is not the great camp
it was, its people having flocked to Fair
'I often meet Nebraska and even Omaha
people up there. Some of them have grown
quite prosperous. In fact, I have never
seen a more prosperous country. ;
'I will return to Alaska In about thirty
day. By the time I reach Ekagway the
river will have opened and I will not be
compelled to experience the great hard
ship, as well a the dangers of crossing
over the inside trail."
