Action of Commercial Clnb Handicaps
LINCOLN, Feb. 19. (Special.) Members
of the Douglas delegation to the legislature
are still waiting for the Commercial club
of Omaha to rescind the action of the ex
ecutive committee which protested against
tho p age of a 2-cent rate bill. Net a day
has l fid since that action was taken and
ptiblhtticd but It has riven up to embarrass
and handicap members of the legislative
delegation and to a man they have denied
responsibility for the actlm of the execu-
tlvo committee of that club, Hnd have ex
pressed themselves In no uncertain terms
as being absolutely opposed to that action
and not In sympathy with It A member
of the delegation said today:
-"It is an outrage on the people of Omaha
that the executive committee of the Com

Peter MortenBen. former state treasurer,
who knows probably as much as any man
in the state about the value of railroad
property and the assessment of that prop

not take from any taxing district fn the
state any- railroad property, but he be
lieves It will Increase the taxable property
In very town and the bill a introduced la
a Just measure, both to the railroads and
to the people. He said:
"I have not studied the bill carefully
which has been introduced, but I think I
am familiar with its general terms. I
think the railroad.! should by all means
pay a tax for city and village purposes.
The bill should be scrutinised very closely
to see that It conforms to the state con
stitution, but I have no doubt able men
have studied it carefully and there la no

C. K. Burnham of Norfolk Is here to look
after the appropriation for the Jamestown
exposition, he being chairman of the com
mission, and also to Impress upon the legis
lators that the Insane hospital there needs
buildings which wilt coot in the aggregate
tlOi.Kio. The railroad company which
hsndl s the freight Into Norfolk has told
the State Board of Public Lands and
Bull. lings that It will construct a side track
to the anylum if .the board will secure the
right-of-way. At this time the board has
an option on the right-of-way for 500 and
the appropriation will be asked for to pay
the Cost. Mr. Burnham said the asylum
authorities are now paying 60 cents a ton
for hauling coal to the asylum and all of
the freight used there has to be hauled two
and one-quarter miles. Since January it
has cost $760 for hauling coal alone to the
asylum. Mr. Burnham believes the state
should lose no time In buying this right-of-way
as It will soon pay for Itself to say
nothing of the convenience.
An Interesting sptctator at the 2-cent rate
hearing In the senate this morning . was
Burlington Lobbyist Frank Young. He
heard It all, but whether he got any satis
faction out of It of course is not known,
except to himself and his corporation em
ployers. It is passing strange, however,
that thlsr jnan ht'lped to put that .plank
through the democratic state convention.
Among others who are on railroad pay rolls
who listened' a part of the time to the
debate were Kdson Rich of the 1'nlon Pa
clflo and Carl Wright of the Northwestern.
Straws point to a "btow off" in Lincoln
before long and when It comes there Is
liable to be a lot less people hanging around
the legislature who have no apparent busi
ness here, but who from appearances have
been sent for to Influence legislation. Mr.
Dodge, In his talk last night. Indicated that
he had something to say about conditions
here and other members are getting dis
gusted at the frequent appearance of
"prominent" citlxens who come "Just to
visit and look around," A move was
started the first part of the session to com
pel lobbyists to register and tell what they
were here for. They were to be permitted
to remain Just so long. That move wan
stifled at Its Inception. Time has shown It
would have been the best course to have
adopted. The hotel lobbies and the corri
dors' of the state house are overrun with
people who have no business here and noth
ing is being done to prevent them from (Set
ting In their work. The way things are
moving nlong now the pledges made by
the republican legislators to the people
will have hard sledding, because these
visitors have been suggesting to members
amendments to, nearly all Joint committee
bills. The object of the lobbyists Is to
create dissatisfaction and JealoURles among
thc members. It Is going to take good
common sense to prevent a wrangle among
the majority members, so some of the legis
lators believe. Only one pledge has so far
been kept, the election of Norrls Brown to
the senate and thirty-three days of the ses
sion has gone by.
Clark Perkins and Ross Hammond, the
former secretary to the republican state
committee, were In Lincoln last night. Mr.
Perkins went to Omaha to attend the, meet
ing of Nebraska editors and It is presumed
Mr. Hammond went too, as he said he had
no special business in Lincoln.
Former State Treasurer Peter Mortensen,
who came here at the personal Invitation
of Chairman Thomson of the senate com
mittee on university and normal schools,
who wrote at the request of the commit
tee, to tell what he knows about the needs
and the finances of these schools, will
leave town tomorrow morning without hav
ing appeared before the committee. He
has been here two. nights and one day,
He reported to Senator Thomson this
morning and to other members of the
committee. No meeting was held and tho
Inference . drawn is that Mr. Mortensen's
appearance .before the committee would
have been very objectionable to the normal
! choI ,ooby and the university lobby.
hence there was no meeting,
Mr. Mortensen would have told the com
mittee that the bill now pending In the
house to make the state treasurer ex-officln
treasurer of the state university Is a most
vicious measure and it should be killed.
The constitution, he would have told them,
provides that all state accounts must be
! audited and Investigated by the state ad-
I dltor. 1 nis mil proviaes ror an evasion

would haMe told tnem, in nis opinion, tne
present statute permitting the auditor to

have Illustrated his remarks by citing that
on one occasion which he recalled a pro
fessor in the state university and his wife
made a trip out In the state and a war
rant was Issued on a certificate to pay the
expenses of both. The expenses, he said,
may have been legitimate, but If the au
ditor had followed the constitution he
would have Investigated the clnlm. Had he
been given the opportunity, Mr. Mortensen
would have told the committee the Peru
Normal did not need a new $36,000 heating
plant, but that by the purchase of one
new boiler It could get along nicely for
the next two years. He would have said
the normal school at Kearney could easily
get along with an additional wing at a
cost of $35,000 Instead of the $100,CC' addi
tion asked for. He would have said, had
he been given the opportunity, that the
Norfolk asylum really needs a new cot
tage, but that would not cost more than
$35,CO0. But Mr. Mortensen was not given
an opportunity He wasted his time in
the interest of the taxpayers and good man
agement of state institutions.
.1 Th. inlmri committee' tonight took UD
the bewhiskered claim of Mrs. Hoxle for
something over $3,000 and trimmed It down
to some $700. This Is paying her at the
rata of $26 a month for the time she is
alleged to have worked at the Kearney
Industrial school. Poatmaater Ed Siser has
been pushing the claim.
The appropriations committee has about
decided there will not be enough money
to give Kearney the $100,000 for the addi
tion to the normal school and it may not
get a cent for new buildings.
William Coryell, who was not given the
seat he fought Carlln for. has filed a
claim for expenses incurred in coming to
