School Children Cat Off.
Because of the Missouri river's meander
Ings, fifteen children In Nebraska have been
denied the opportunity to secure an edu
cation. All of them- live on less than a
square mile of ground, and eleven of the
number belong to one family. - There Is no
little white achoolhouse for them, and they
do not know what a teacher la. Superln- I
tendent W. A. Yoder of Douglaa county.
Whose attention was called to this be
nighted locality some time ago, has writ
ten to 8tate Superintendent McErlen asking
him what steps should be taken to provide
arhpol privileges for the children. The
situation haa proven ao knotty to the state
' superintendent and the attorney general
alike, that they cannot outline or advise
' a course of action until they get further
Information regarding the atatua of thlnga
In the achoolless area.'
On the Initial submission, the attorney
general'a office could not ascertain a
sufficient bast of fact to arrive At an In-;
, telltgent legal view of the case. A request
has therefore been sent to the . Douglas
county superintendent, asking, foe all the
JlMa'Tie haa relative to the situation. The
nuestlrns particularly asked of him are:
Wns a school ever maintained In the dis
trict? and, when did It cease to be main
tained? When the answera are received,
the attorney general will take another
whirl at the matter.
Republican Cooatf Committee.
At the meeting of the republican county
central committee this afternoon, the legis
lative candidates present, J. C. F. Mc
Kesson, E. W. Brown and Ned Brown,
made It very plain that they stand upon,
the republican platform, and will earn
out ita mandates conscientiously If elected.
The question under debate was whether
the campaign should be a speaking one or
whether the candldatea ahould remain at
home and let the people do the work.
The committee waa called to order by
retiring Chairman Walton O. Roberta. He
announced that tha candldatea had selected
J. 8. Baer aa chairman. Howard Schlegal
aa aecretary and Bemen C. Fox aa treas
urer. The aelectlona were confirmed.
Mast Bary Aatmals.
When horses, cows, hogs or other do
mestic animals are condemned by the atate
veterinarian because of disease, they must
be killed and disposition made of their
bodies by the owner a. There la no pro
vision In the statutes which requires the
veterinarian himself to slaughter the beasts
or destroy their carcasses. Furthermore,
the atate will not compensate the ownera
for tha loss of their propeity, and If the
sheriffs or other, local officials are called
upon to help get rid .of the bodies they
must looavto the countiea for their pay.

DECISION; ON COTTON RATES
Carrisri Will Be Allowed to Make Keduo"

NO CONCESSION IN ADVANCING RATES
Fall Thirty Days' Notice aa BpeclfUel
by Law Req aired for Rales-. !
Modlflcatloa of Expor
WA8HINOTON. Bept. 16. The Inter
state Commerce commission today ren
dered its decision on the petition of the
Southern Railroad Co. and other carriers
operating east of the Mississippi river
and south of the Ohio and Potomac rivers
for permission to equalise export rates on
cotton, 'cotton seed and Ita products, and
lumber and thereby make changes In their
export rates without the thirty days'
notice required by the new rate law.
The commission holds that carriers may
legally lasue through bills of lading from
the Interior point of shipment to a for
eign destination, which apeetfy the Inland
rate to the port pf export and the ocean
rate from the port of export, even though
no joint through (ate Is published. .
Ne Coaeessloas oa Advsiaees. .
The commission orders that "no pub
lished rates on cotton shall be advanced
except upon thirty days notice; that from
and after thla date and until March 1,
107, carrlera may reduce their published
export ratea on cotton to the various ports
of export upon three daya' notice and that
until November 1. ISO, carriers may con
tinue to equalise cotton export rates
through the various ports by apply
ing the lowest combination through all
the ports, thereby making said rates with
out publication and filing as required by
law, provided that they post In two con
splcuoua placea In the station where cot
ton la received for ahlpment, notices of
the ratea ao made and mall copies of the
same to the commission, said notices to
specify the rate and time during which
the rate will continue In effect.''
He Chaasjes ea Laaaber.
As to cottonaeed and pits products and
lumber the petition la denied.
Scores of applications for permission to
ehaiige freight rates have been received
by the commission during the past few
daya and In every Instance the changes
which the carriers desire to make are re
ductions. The applications have been en
tirely voluntary. Commissioner Franklin
"It would seem from the number' and
Importance of these productions that many
carriers recognise that their rates are too
high at the time of the enactment of tha
Hepburn law. It also seems that they are
preparing for .the operation of the new
law under which freight rates cannot be
changed with the facility that formvrly
was the rule."
