(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.

West Point Woman's Clab Endorses
Proposed Leatalatlon.
WEST POINT, Neb., Jan. S.-(gpeclal.)
The Woman's club met at the "home of
Mrs. J. F. Losch. The subject for the
evening was the works of Oliver Wendell
Holmes. f The following resolution was
adopted;
Behaving that the child labor law af.
fords Insufficient protection for children,
and that Nebraska should adopt measures
similar to those enforced In Illinois and
other states, which have recently con
sidered this question, we endorse H. R. 9.
And also believing the most effective
means of preventing child labor Is a xtrong
cornnulHory education law, we endorse
8. F. 60, and earnestly request your sup
port of these two measures.
And also believing that there is great
need of a law In our state which shall
prevent the sale of adulterated, deleterious
and polaonnus foods, drugs and medicines,
we do petition you to use your best efforts
to secure the passage of a state pure food
law In conformity with the national law,
and that sufficient appropriation be made
to enforce the same.
