Thursday III final" erics, "or whether to
vote on each system again and make a
record of. each vote. This latter plan
was adopted and the vote' in every In
stance was the same as lust Thursday.
The next step will be to draw up the
resolution containing the final action of
the board1. This will be voted upon at
the next meeting and will be adopted
Ccunty Assessor Miller of Lancaster
'county came before the board and asked
for Instructions regarding the assessment
of the Interurban line, but was referred
ta his county attorney.
Mr. Miller said the returns made by
Miller ft Payne of this city would make
the Omaha assessment of merchandise
look sick and he wants the board to see
that Omaha merchantlle property comes
up a notch. In order to keep the Lincoln
merchants off his back. The board mem
bers told Mr. Miller he had been a faith
ful, painstaking official and for him to J
go right ahead and bring In good assess

Pr. J. L. Greene, superintendent of thr
Lincoln Insane asylum, filed a request
with the Board of Public Lands and Build
ings this morning for an investigation of
- the -matter of the death of W. S. Mc
Cartney of Nebraska City, who was
killed In the asylum during the first week
In November, 1904. The request probably
will be granted.
"Every time anything comes up and
there la an opportunity for a hostile
press te say something reflecting upon
me, the opportunity Is taken advantage
of. I want that 'death thoroughly In
vestigated and If I waa in any way re
sponsible for It, then I am ready and
. willing to resign any position as superin
tendent of the asylum. I have been a
quarter of a century building up a repu
tation and as long aa the newspapers
continue to refer to that murder, my
l. nutation is damaged to that extent.
If t. board Investigates and finds I was
not responsible then It will forever stop
this talk. I think, much more of my
' reputation than I do of any (2,600 Job

I want this thing settled once and for all.

RATE BILL TO CONFERENCE
House Committee Recommends that All
Amendments Ee Disagreed To.
ALLISON COMPROMISE IS ACCEPTABLE
Pipe Line Proposition Is Generally
Regarded aa Inconsistent with
Section Prohibiting Deal,
ins; In Commodities.
WASHINGTON, May 21.-The railroad
rate bill was considered for three hours
tonight by the house committee on foreign
and interstate commerce and the decision
reached to recommend disagreement to all
of the senate amendments and to send the
measure to conference. The committee will
not ask that instructions of any character
be given to the house conferees.
There was no disposition to criticise the
amendment conferring Jurisdiction upon the
courts to review orders made by the Inter
state Commerce commission, for in the
hcuse committee as well as in the senate
many members contended that the bill, as It
was passed by the house, gave that au
thority to the courts. This amendment and
others, which collectively are known aa the
Allison compromise, undoubtedly will be
agreed to by the house conferees.
The amendment which gave the house
committee the greatest concern tonight was
that making pipe lines common carriers,
which the committee thought Inconsistent
with the amendment prohibiting, common
carriers from producing commodlf.es car
ried by it. Formal action was not had on
any of the amendments and thertfore the
house conferees likely will be left free to
exercise their best Judgment.
