THINKS ATTITUDE OF COURT FAVOR ABlt saa4 Abandon Their Contention thai Other Property In State la Assessed Too LoiMKra Ftarea aa , Valaatloa. (From a Staff CorresDondent.l UNCOLJM. Jan. 2ft. (Special.) Attorney wenenu THirniMon returned last nleht from Washington, where he, with Senator-Elect Horrlg Brown, represented the state In the taaea brought by the Union Pacific and BurUngton railroads to make perpetual a temporary Injunction to prevent the collec tion or their taxes In Nebraska, In excess of 80 per cent of the amount levied. 'Mr. Thompson la Well satisfied with the treat tnent accorded the Nebraska lawyers by the United States supreme court and feels safe In predicting a verdict against the railroads, II bases thta on the way the eourt treated the corporation lawyers and the many embarrassing questions asked them by members of the court. The fact that Justice Moody did not sit with the court during; the hearing operated to defeat the contention of the railroad for full court to hear the case. It was upon this ground the railroads secured de lays In the hearing. .. When the- case was ealled Justice Moody remarked that as he owned some stock In the Union Pacific he would not take part In the case and ex cused himself. . In discussing the case Mr. Thompson said: "Mr. Baldwin, for the Union Pacific, fetid the court the .late Edward Rosewater wae responsible for the . Increase In tho assessment of railroad property and that ha had created a public clamor for the Increase, and the State Board of Assess ment had - acted In accordance with the demands of the public and Edward Rose water, rather than upon the actual value of railroad property in the state." A Justice Interrupted to ask Mr. Baldwin tf Mr. Rosewater was a party to the suit. When Informed he was not the court re quested the railroad attorney not to "waste any time discussing public clamor." Mr. Thompson said the attorneys for the two railroads abandoned their contention that other property In Nebraska had been assessed too low.., 6ne of the lawyers was asked what ths Union Pacific was worth a mile In Nebraska and he replied S4S.000. Mr. Baldwin contended the state board 1 bad Included In Its calculations bonds and ! stocks of auxiliary roads, while Mr Greene contended the value of the Illinois and I' Iowa terminals had been imported to Ne braska to make up the board's assessment of the Burlington. Both lawyers dwelt at ! length upon the fact that the board had made an "arbitrary" reduction of $10,000 a mile to cover certain deductions, and they were Informed by the eourt that the arbi trary" reduction would cut no figure.
