HUMBOLDT, Neb.,' April 3 (Special.)
Considerable attention is being paid, in this'
part of tfca district ' to tho reyort tUt 4u
certain quarters a sj;tcmatic effoyt la be
ing made to stir up opposition to Congress
man' Pollard "and prevent his securing- a 're
nomination at the hands of the republicans
this fall. O. A. Cooper of this city, who
is congressional committeeman from this
county and a politician of long standing,
has been studying the situation carefully
and expreases the belief that Mr. Tollard
will win out in .spite of all opposition,
which he considers is not widespread t all.
When asked what ho -thought about the
conditions In Lancaster county, where the
most stir Is bqlng made, Mr. Cooper said:
"Incaster County should be set off in a
dlatrlct by heriwlf, then she could always
have a representative In congress from
Lincoln, one who would have nothing to
do but look after their Individual Interests,
appropriations, etc. They are making the
fight of their Uvea against Pollard be
cause he is representing the whole district
and not putting in his whole time work
ing for the Interests of Lincoln and cater
ing to the dictation of a few railroad poli
ticians at Lincoln.
"The coming congressional convention will
determine whether Lancaster county shall
continue dictating to ull cne rest of the
district In the future the same as she has
.n the post. But this time they will have
a harder fight than" they ever' went up
against before, for the farmers realize that
they have a truo friend In ou congress
man. Mr. Pollard,' who in looking after
their interests as thry have never been
looked after before. It is a fact that we
have never had a congressman who is bet
ter posted: on farming and fruit raising,
and I doubt if we have a . man in the
First district who Is better fitted to look
after th Interest!" of the farmer In con
gress thun Mv. Pollnrd. He' has proven this
by the work he has already done In get
ting appropriations for experimental tests
of spraying at least one ..r chard in each
county in tho district, providing for a test
seeding of at least live acres of alfalfa,
wheat, oats and corn, all of which experi
ments are to be under the supervision of
experts In the employ of the government. I
know of nothing our representative in con
grtf could do that will eventually work
mora good to the district and eaiK-clully
to the farmers and fruit raisers. And as
far as old Richanlaon Is concerned I know
tlutt her fanners re up iu arms for Pol
lard like they never were for a congress
man "before, and they are going to see
that ilc l K ites an sent to the congressional

MICHIGAIfCASE AND RATE BILL
'Tonsen alive" Senators See Hope for
Their Position In Recent De
rision of Svpreme Coart.
WASHINGTON, April 3. -Conservative
republican senators, who have contended
that the house railroad bill will be uncon
stitutional If pasaod without an amend
ment frlvlns; to common carriers their "day
In court," have accepted yesterday's de
cision of the supreme court in the Michi
gan railroad tax case as positive affirma
tion of their position. Several of these
senators met today In the committee room
of Senator Aldrich and after a conference
Senafor Knox was requested to plve his
attention to an examination of the decision
with a view to informing them Just what
biaring it will have on the pending rate
Senator Knox 'promised to give the de
cision his closest attehtion.
From a hasty examination lie declared
that It seemed to be In accord with the
opinion he has held since the house bill was
passed by the senate committee without
adoption. Justice Brewer in the Michigan
cases said: '
"In tho nation no one of the three graat
departments assume to be given the func
tions of another, for the constitution dis
tinctly grants to the president, congress
and the Judiciary, separately, the execu
tive, legislative and Judicial powers of the
nation. It.muy, therefore, be conceded that
at tempted legislation by congress to the
presldent. or any ministerial officer or
bourdK" of power to fix a rnte oi taxation
or axerciHC other legislative functions
would be Judged unconstitutional."
Opponents of the railroad rate Ull In Its
present form believe that the decision is
applicable to an attempt by congress to
delegate rate making power to a com
mission unless the courts are given full
power of review of such power. They await
with more than ordinary ifTTerest the opin
ion of the leading lawyers of the senate.
Supporters of the house bill arc not dis
turbed by the Michigan cases, contending
that the opinion of Justice Brewer is dic
tum so far aa It concerns pending- legisla
tion. Senators Doltlver and Nelson declare
unhesitatingly that the opinion is not ap
plicable to the present case. Senator Long
who addressed the senate today In support
of the bill, tiuoted from the opinion of
Justice Brewer in the maximum rate case,
as to whether congress in fact conferred
the rate making power upon the Interstate
Commerce commission, the following:
"There were three obvious and dissim
ilar courses open for consideration. Con
gress might 1 tself prescribe the rates, or
it might commit to some subordinate trib
unal this duty, or It might leave with the
lompanlea the right to maks rates, aub
Ject to regulations and restrictions as well
as to that rule which Is as old as the ex
istence of common carriers, to wit, that
rales must be reasonable."

Effect of Bnrkett Bill.
The first assistant postmaster general
has written a letter to Senator Burkett rel
ative to the effect oiv the poftal service of
his bill, recently Introduced, to extend first
class city free delivery to all cities of the
country having a , population of 4n,ou) or
more. Mr. Hitchcock, in his letter, says
that the hill would, not cause an increase
In the number of .carriers employed. It
would, however, . add thirty-seven offices to
the present number of first class free de
livery offices, making a total of nlnety-Qve
instead of fifty-eight. -.It would raise the
salaries of 1,132 letter carriers by $150 per
annum each, anJ for the time being reduce
the pay f, a few other carriers by about
to0 per annum each,. The passage of the
Burkett bill ' would . Increase by approxi
mately $l"6.0no the cost of city delivery dur
ing the coming fiscal year.

ing declared in today's election against
Mayor W. W. Rose's policy of licencing
liquor Joints, the mayor sent In his resig
nation to the city council tonight.
The resignation wns unanimously ac
cepted. Mayor Rose ever since his elec
tion on the democratic ticket a year ago
has been at war with the Kansas stnle
administration and temperance people of
his city over enforce'ment of the prohibi
tion law. He has favored licensing the
Joints and the state administration has
been unable to convict a Joint keeper ar
rested for selling liquor. Mayor Rose
made his policy an Issue In today's elec
tion for aldermen . and was defeated. An
unusually large number of women voted.
E. E. Venard, president of the council
and a republican, who has bitterly op
posed Mayor Roses policy, will be the
acting mayor for ten days, at the expira
tion of which a special election will be
held to elect a successor to Rose. Mayor
Rose announced tonight that he would en
ter the race for re-election, and his re
publican opponent will probably be Police

Vernon J. Rose, chief. of police, an ardent
supporter of Mayor Rose, also tendered his

KANSAS CITY. April 3-The republican
city ticket, headed by Henry M. Beards
ley for mayor, was elected today, Mr.
Bearduley's majority over Robert L.
Gregory, democrat, being estimated at
1,200. The Issue of the csmpalgn was re
stricting of public service franchises, both
platforms endorsing the principle of mu
nicipal ownership. The gas company and
the street railway company are both seek
ing axtensims of franchises, and the In
coming administration is pledged to insist
upon adequate return for extension and
to establish a municipal gas plant unless
a reduction of the price of gas is made.
The new administration has a large ma
jority ln each house of the city council.
A feature of the election was the scrutiny
of the voting by Governor Folk, who ln
an automobile visited nearly every poll
ing place In the city. In previous elec
tions there have been many complaints of
police interference with voters, and Gov
ernor Folk, beside instructing the police
Commissioners to see that fraud was pre
vented, derided to n.ake a personal in

Man Hapuoaed to Hare Been Hilled
Writes a Letter from
SIOCX FAIjLS. 8. D.. April 3. (Special.)
The mystery surrounding the disappear
ance of Chris Sven. a farmer, has been
at least partially solved. Reliable Informa
tion has been received here to the effect
that recently. Immediately prior to the de
parture of Mrs. Sven for Larch wood, Is.,
to take up her permanent home with rela
tives at that place, she received a let'er
from her missing husband, who is alive
and well. Sven wrote and mailed tha let
ter at Bergen, Norway, and its receipt
confirms the belief of many that he hnd
not been murdered, as waa supposed, but
would eventually turn out al his old home
In Nora-ay. There Is now little doubt that
because of domestic difficulties Sven quietly
left Sioux Palls and Minnehaha county
for his old home In Europe. It was In
connection with his disappearance that
twenty-four persons were recently arrested

acres, or nearly three townships. Seventy
eight contests were filed during the month,
and among some of them a new point has
been raised. No question of sufficiency of
Improvements or residence is brought up.
but the entry is attacked on the question
of good faith of the entryman. This In
clude his faith in holding the claim s a
home for himself, and If the department
should hold that to be ground for contest
it would open up a Urge number of claims
which are held by business men In towns,
where they' spend most of the time, making
trips to the claim.
The atate land .department has also been
doing a large business for the month, hav
ing disposed of several hundred acres, of
state budding land and about 5.000 acres of
common school land, the state building land
going at $10 an acre and the common school
at better prices, some of It selling aa high
as $40 an acre." For the month sixty-three
patents were issued by the state to parties
who made final payments on such tracts,
the largest number In any one county being
Clay, which took twenty-two, the rest be
ing scattered generally in counties in which
sales have been made.
