'LINCOLN, May 8. iSpfulal. ) Tlie
county memor of Otoe county wants to
Kef'rn tha wttt half of the Burlington
bridge arroM tho Missouri river at Ne
braska City, on the ground that la Is op
erated as both a railroad and a wagon
bridge and collects toll, lie hss asked
lng on the matter and tt has been re
ferred to the legal department of tha
The sssessor banes his opinion on sec
tion 10442. Cobbey s statutes 103. which
rends ss follows:
All toll bridges shall be listed In tho
county, township, prprlncl, city, village
and school district where located, and If
lixafd In two counties, townships, pre
cincts, elites, villages or school district,
then one-half In each.
The assessor wrote the board that the
assessor in Fremont county, Iowa, across
the river from Nebraska, has assessed his
half of the bridge locally, but the rail
road refused to pay the taxes and the
same now stand delinquent.
The railroad has returned this bridge
to the State Board of Assessment of No
braska as a part of Its right-of-way to
be assessed by the board. This Is tho
first time this question has been called
to the attention of the board. Hecently
In a case before the supreme court from
Richardson county the court held the
local assessing authorities had no right
to assess the railroad bridge at Ruin.
This bridge, however, Is used exclusively
by the railroad company, while at Ne
braska City the bridge la used as a rail
road and wagon bridge combined and
tolls are chargeu for the transportation
of wagons, animals and people.
Because Governor Mickey was busy wel
coming the Knights of Pythias to Lincoln
the board was half an hour late In meer
lng. The three members present, Guluslin,
Mortensen and Eaton, organised by the
selection of Eaton as chairman lro tern.
The governor reached his office after Sec
retary Bennett had read the communica
tion from the assessor of Otoe county and
li had been referred to the attorney gen
eral. Moil)lni Railroad Values. ,
The board spent the day studying the
mocks and bonds of the I'nlon Pacific and
preparing Itself for the onslaught of R.
J. Clancy next Tuesday. Air. Mortensen
has already figured out what he considers
a fair valuation of all the roads and he
has submitted his figures to the other mem
ber r( the board and they may play qnlte
a part In the final conclusions of the board.
The board lu.s finally discovered the law
which sovern the making of reports by
the rallrouds contains much that Is not
only necessary, hut which is calculated to
contuse. That which could easily be dis
carded with prcflt 'is the section calling
r-r a teporl or the nurntier or ties, me
weight of ihe rails and the location of
every tool house and outbuilding on the
various lines in the state. This causes
much work In tabulating and assists the
board very little. If any. It Is believed by
at least or.e member of the board this part
of the law was put In the original bill by
the ralltonds merely to confuse the board
ineirctxra with a lot of statistics on physi
cal property in order to keep their minds
off of the stocks and bonds and the earn
ings i f the system.
Whl e the lsrd members have not dug
r.cep enough into the returns to give any
lilra of whit they will do. It would not
much surprise If the I'nlon Pacific
ar.d tl:e Northwestern should get a ma
terial U,csl. whl there Is a little deposi
tion, on IV p jrt of -some members to cither

The removal of the two officers at Nor
folk Is tho nd of a long quarrel between
the employes at the Institution, which has
been golcg on ever since the hospital was

o-operatlve Ice Company.
The Ice lruit of Lincoln, which has placed
tile price of ice higher by 100 per cent than
lit any of the surrounding cities and towns,
Is going to have competition In a co-operative
Ice company, which is now being or
ganised. E. G. Mnggi started out this
morning with a paper to get people to
subscribe stock for a new company to
operate on the co-operative busts and In
less than a few hours he had sold over
M.60O worth, of slock, every man he called
upon taking a few shores at 110 each. It
la the Intention of those Interested to sell
about 115.000 worth of stock and get an
Ice plant In running order along in the
first part of July. When the Ice companies
announced a 100 per cent Increase In Ice a
mighty howl went up all over town, but
the wall failed to touch the Icy hearts of
the dealers and the people began to get
ready to pay the price. Now comes the
"Ice trust buster."' with prospects of doing
a good business.
