ANOTHER CHAPTER IN AUTOMOBILE STORY
l. Bnrlelsh Wow as Machine
Which Mas Franked from Wash
laa-tea Was the Property
of His Son.
i From a Staff Cot rcj-pondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. 19. (Special.) J. A. Wil
liams, the man who bctrnyfd the repub
licans of Plt-rce county In order to secure
the nomination of railway commissioner nt
the hands of Hie republican Ftato conven
tion, and who Is now preaching honesty
and morality In politics, and who is talk
ing of the "square dral." has again been
branded ss a fal-lfler and this time by a
man who lives neighbor to him.
Representative Oscar Thompson of Wis
her, who s-rved in the last legislature, and
who was a delegate to the late state con
vention, said Williams had solicited bis
support for railway commissioner ten days
previous to the convention. Williams de
nied recently that he waa a candidate pre
vious to the convention and that he had
not solicited support from anyone. Hera
la what Representative Thompson said at
the Llndell hotel last night:
"I see Williams hss denied that he ever
solicited support for his candidacy for
railway commissioner and that he did not
betray the republicans of Pierce county In
order to secure his nomination. Williams
did solicit support and he tells an untruth
when he denies it. About ten days before
the state convention I wss on the train
going to Omaha when Williams was
brought back to my seat and introduced to
me. He then asked me to vote for him In
the state convention for railway commis
sioner. He sold out the republicans of
Pierce county to get his nomination and
he violated his Instructions. To his treach
ery he now adds falsehood.
"The railway commission Is an Important
body and should be composed of men of
Integrity and men who cannot be swerved
from the path of duty by offer of political
favor or by any Inducement. If he would
sell out his home county, he certainly can
not be trusted to look after the Interests
of the state."
Burleigh on Automobile Frank.
The following statement by D. Burleigh,
superintendent of the Rock Island at Fair
bury, regarding the ownership of the auto
mobile franked on Thomas C. Piatt's frank
from Washington to Falrbury. and the
attached letter on file In the office of the
secretary of state and signed by H. R.
Htnshaw, son of the congressman, may
be of Interest to the people of the Fourth
district. Mr. D. Burleigh claims the auto
mobile waa the property of his son, wh!l
the letter on file gives out the Impression
that It was the property of young Hlnshaw.
Mr. Burleigh's statement is being circu
lated over the Fourth district in the Inter
est of the congressman and a request wns
made that it be published In this column
by a friend of Mr. Hlnshaw:
The Incident happened two and a half
years ago. My son Will was working ct
that time in the Rock Island shops here
as a machinist. He cot the automobile
fever and decided that he wanted to get a
second-hand machine which he could fix up
and run. So he wrote to his chum, Ray
Hins aw who was with his fa h -r In Wash
ington then, and asked him to look around
and see what he could find for him. It
seems that a man named Pescliel was
found who had a small Olds runabout
which he was willing to sell cheap. I
think It was a 1302 model Will liked the
proposition, und. not having quite enough
money, he borrowed $75 from his mother
to apply on the purchase. The bovs were
going to send the machine bv freight, but
I told them I could arrange to have it sent
I am trainmaster on the Rock Island,
over which the Cnited States Express com
pany operates. It is customary for them
to give express passes over the company's
lines to officers of the railroads over which
they operate and consequently I was able
to arrunra to have the machine shipped
free on my account, and did so. Congress
man Hlnshaw did not have anything to do
with it. In a little over a year the ma
chine was sold to a young fellow named
Wolfe In August, 1906, the sale was who
Is employed by the Falrbury Telephone
Mr. Burleigh's attention was called to
the statement In the Omaha papers that
the machine was registered In the name
of R. 1L Hlnshaw. He said:
I did not know anything of this at the
t iin. but I have since Inquired and find
t hat at the time the automobile registra
tion law went Into effect my son was in
Valley Junction. la., working in the Rock
Island shops there. Desiring to get the
machine registered, before he left he askd
Ray Hlnshaw to send In a description of
the nun-nine at the proia-r time for entry,
which was done. He intended to register
it in my son's name, but through some mla.
chance or mistake It seems that it was not
so registered. The boys did not know until
the publication of these articles how the
machine was registered, aa nothing but a
small tag with the number was sent bock
from the office. The machine was assessed
hers on Will's account and he paid the
taxes on It. The boys are about the same
age. Will being 21 and Hay 24. They have
been very Intimate friends for thirteen or
fourteen yeurs and they are accustomed to
attend to minor matters of this kind for
each other when necessary.

Pullman Seeds Attention.
While legislative candidates ure pledging
themselves on mutters pertaining to rail
road taxation, very little is being suld of
the Pullman Car company, which is as
sessed In Nebraska now at Just one-half of
what Treasurer Mortensen and Governor
Mitkey believe it thould be assessed. Its
right to do business here is nul assessed
at all, the value of the physical property,
without regard to the businesa done, con
stituting the amount of the assessment.
Governor Mickey and Treasurer Mortensen
worked hard to secure an increase In this
assessment, but Attorney General Brown
held under the present statute this Increase
could not be made. Both Mickey and Mor
tensen opposed the interpretation of . the
law aa mado by Mr. Brown, but. failing to
get the support of the other three mem
bers of the board, they could not carry
their point. This leaves it necessary, said
Mr. Mortemsen, for the next legislature to
amend the law so the Pullman company
can be assessed as are other corporations.
It la not unlikely a bill will be Intro
duced to rut In half the present high rate
