Their Klnnnrlnl Report and Also

rrronl a 8ta(T Correspondent.) '
LINCOLN, Dec. 17. (Special.) While re
publican members of the stite legislature
re figuring out a program and discussing
the selection of officials to serve during
the session, the report come to Lincoln
that the democrat are not Idle, but are
lino getting very busy on a program, and
their program Is being arranged with an
) to the future. The report is that the
democrats Intend to offer bills as soon as
possible after the session begins covering
practically every plank In the republican
platform. Ily this plan they hope to either
force., the majority to vote for minority
Mils or for the majority to kill the bills.
n the tnlxup, however, they hope to get
the republicans to fighting among them
selves and thus prevent any Important
legislation now demanded by the people.
Bhould the republican majority pass a
minority measure, the democrats two years
from now, would claim the credit of any
(rood measure passed, or should the ma
jority kill a democratic measure that is
ound, and then fall to pass a bill equally
as good, the democrats again would have
good campaign thunder.
It has been suggested the only way to
head off this contemplated action of the
democrats is for the republicans to stand
together and select a Joint committee to
ret up the bills desired and then to kill the
democratic measures should the two parties
Introduce measures of the same character
Inasmuch aa the people have voted con
fidence In the republicans and have selected
republicans to carry out the reforms de
manded, a well known republican has
Suggested that sincere democrats will work
with the republicans, appearing before the
Committees and making suggestions, but
that they will not try to formulate any
legislation which the republicans have been
elected to enact.

Talk of Inaugural Hall.

Tho famous Nebraska railroad tax cases

date was agreed upon between Attorney
General Norris Brown, representing the
state, and Charles J. Greene, special at

with written credentials authorizing him
to act for John N. 1'u.ldwln, for the Union
Pacific, as well. The agreement was
reached yesterday when Mr. Brown was In

date on which the legislature will ballot for
United States senator, an election In which
Norris Brown, as the candidate endorsed
by the republicans for that office, will be
very much Interested. Mr. Brown will be
no longer attorney general at that time, but
it Is all fixed for him to argue the caso in
conjunction with Attorney General Thomp
son and carry through as a volunteer the
litigation tie has begun as attorney gen
eral, rather than give the railroads excuse
for another delay. Mr. Brown agreed to
be In Washington Instead of at Lincoln on
January 22, relying on the republican mem

for him in his abxeuce according to the
This agreement came up incidentally in
connection with Jhe call of the case involv

Mr. Greene and Mr. Brown these cases will

preme court on the appeal of the 1904 tax
cases. Mr. Greene, for the railroads, also
stipulated that If the railroads lost In the
supreme court on the 1904 taxes they would
abide by that decision also for the 1905 and
Wii taxes. The state, however, Is not
bound to be governed by that decision so
far as It is concerned In the 1905 anil 190(i
tax cases, because some other elements
enter Into those tax levies which did not
enter into the f.H levies.
Attorney General Brown returned to Lin
