CTrsr Reloses to Psrsss O'Keara.
Governor Mickey has definitely refused
to commute the death sentence of Jay
O'Hearn. tha Omaha boy murderer, to life
Imprisonment. O llearn a mother. In com
pany with Vr. F. M. Blsson. MethoJifl
clergyman from Omaha, called upon the
xeoatlve this forenoon to press the request
top clemency, but Governor MU'key told
them that he would do nothing In the case
until the courla are through with it. As
O'Hearn's appeal Is now pending In th
supreme court and cannot be reached b
sr tUe preMnt governor's term expires.
this attitude Is equivalent to a refusal on
Mr. Mickey's part to grant the commutation.
After calling upon the governor, Mr
O'Hearn and fhe clernynian wont to the
penitentiary, where an aifectlng interview
between the condemned murderer and lib
mother took place.

W. It. Price, an old populist war horse,

L1NCOL.N; Neb Hon. W. B. Rose,
Chairman Republican State Committee
My Dear Mr. Rose: 1 read your letter di

tieth sexsion of the Nebraska legislature
add wlxh to congratulate you tor the
poignant statements It eonlalns and fur the
understanding which you display relative
to difficulty to be overoume by them In
enacting into law all of the measures prem
ised. The letter also Impressed nie With
ynur uppurcnt honesty and personal anx
iety In having your party redeem every
pledge. The anti-pass law, the direct pri
mary law and laws to tax the railway
terminals, while new to your party are not
ho to a large numlx-r of our clllseiw, fo.'
the ivasin that tney have been discussed
and udvuiMtnl for a miiuber of years by
your politlciU opponenis, theiefoie nil
parties Im'Ihk now aKeed uix.n the neces
sity for their enactment, little or no discus
sion will be required lor their (mhs.ikc.
But (he great battle will eome upon (he
laws Uxliirf maximum frelKht anil a
senscer rates to be paid railroad compauks
In this state. As to the Imperative need
of such laws, I take It ail parties are
agreHl, this being true, then the vitil point
la how can It be done with the least Irk
. (ion and certainty of accompll'liing the de
I sired lenulls? 'i he plan pruH).-d by you
and your party Is to confer upon the rail
way commission the power to tlx, determine
and enforce reasonable freight and pas
i senger rates. This plan, in my Judgment,
! is fraught with two doubtful and (herefore
dangerous contingencies. first, and mo. I
rcmoLe, the declaring of the constitutional
amendment ci eating the coiiini:al n n:l for
various reasons, and dlscuscd during tne
recent caiiiiMiiKn. Second, and the one
which I consider most serlmis. can tne lg-
Islature confer this pi wer upn a cjmm s
slon? 1 have svrlous douot uix.n litis
point, and It is at least ui such Importance
as to require caret ui attenticn friMii evtry
iik-mber-elect, and of all who ar slncieiy
working for relief from the too hlali. in-
rijuitahli- and discriminating rates now In
force In Nebraska,
The constltntlikii (Section 4, Article xl, en
titled corpoiailonsl provides:
"And the iegtelature may from time t-
lime pass laws esiabiishir.g maximum ralej
of charges for (he tranHpor(at ion pas
wniieia and freight on the different rail
roads In this siute,"
Kiom (he wording of (his po tion of oi.r
constitution it Is v ry clear to my under
standing that the legislature ai-ne has the
power to lix, make and determine wtiut
ates shull be charged for the transp. .na
tion of freight and pass, nans In this state,
and It haa no Inherent power to c.mfer or
delegate this vesti d duty upon iiuothei
bod or upon any executive officer or offi
cers. Th cerelltutlon must be strictly cori
t trued, and It is very mar to me that the
court would have to give (he above mn
struitlon to our constitution. 1 think thU
was known (o at least a few of the manip
ulators if your state convention. You will,
no d ubt, reo ill that (he platform dratted
by the sike-ial committee called for legis
lative enactment upon this subject, but
when the committee selected by the conven
tion met it changed It so as to clothe the
promised commission with the rate-making
power. This appears to be Just a Utile the
mo .t!. si pleee of political work ever per
petrated by the "power behind the throne."
The loiilcntion (hat (he constitutional
amendment adopted by the people at the
November election covers any Uoubt upon
this umiior is not well taken. In n.y j.'dg
.uruU The language of the joint resolution
submitting the proposed amendment to the I
people is as rollows:
The powers and duties of such
.ommtmlon shall include the regulation of
ites, service and general control of corn-
icon curriers as the legislature may provide
There U nothing In this language which
would amend, abrogate or moillly the lan
4UUKe used in Sccti'Hi 4. Article xl of the
constitution above quoted. I do not think,
iherefoie, that any one win seriously con
tend that the Joint resolution confers the
power to make or fix rates. Now. (hen. If
your party does all upon this subject Hint
it has promised, you can see that the peo
ple will not get the relief they are de .mind
ing. In fact, yen c ould not render a greater
service to the "Interests'' that ore oppos
ing the reduction of rates In this state than
to cairy out your proposed plan.
Having pointed out what I consider fatal
defects In your plun, pardon me now for
offering a remedy which will obviate all
trouble and give tho people Immediate re
lief. The legislature of ISM passed a maxi
mum freight rate law which provided for
an averiiKe reduction of approximately 19
per cent from the then prevailing rates and
a greater per cent from the rates now In
force. Just as soon as the railroad commissioners-elect
take the oath of office let
them put this law In force and If any of
the schedules are too high the legislature
can lower them. Hy thus doing we cer
tainly will have lower rates at once nnd
will avoid the dangers of a new law being
The dingers Incident to passing of now
laws Is always very great and especially Is
this (rue wi(h niatlera relative lo rate
making. Very few persona are competent
to undertake so difficult a task, and an the
legislature Is limited to a ulxty-d.iy session,
I think It Improbable, f not impossible, for
them lo piss a satisfactory law. und even
If they did. It will require several years
to determine its validity, as the New York
Interests iliat are reaping the bcneilta from
the excessive rates charged In this stale
will not submit without a long nnd drawn
out legal battle. i
This subject should be considered and
discussed from a nonpartisan viewpoint
and by so doing the iieople may expect
speedy relief. Rcsiiectfullv,
