H. R. 244, by McMullen of Gage, appro
priating H 00.000 from the general fund of
the state for the erection of a woman's
building, a horticultural building and other
structures at the agricultural farm, was
placed on general file. Inasmuch aa the
committee Is not favorable to the appropri
ation of 1100,000 for the erection of a wing
at the Kearney normal school, there Is
liable to be a big fight on the appropriation
for the university. It Is said there will be
less than K0 pupils enrolled at, the agricul
tural farm next year, while there Is llablo
to be 1,300 at the Kearney normal school.
Inasmuch as there Is over 11.000,000 to be
appropriated '. tot , the Lincoln Institution,
there is some feellag that an even distri
bution la not being made. Some oontend
that no appropriation for the university
should be made out of the general fund, as
tb one-mill levy will be. sufficient - under
proper management to meet all the require
ments of the Institution, -
The senate today killed S. F. til. one
of the Insurance bills recommended by the
state Insurance department, after the meas

this, bill that a . powerful Insurance? lobby
has been at work in Lincoln for the last
two or three weeks. All of the local com
panies in the state except one was against
It and the opponent of the measure as
serted that the big Insurance companies
of, the east sent lobbyists here to help push
It. This Is denied, however, by the friends
of the bill. The measure would have more
Influence on the life Insurance business In
the state than any othet of the fifteen or
twenty Insurance measures that have been

payment policies to make an annual dis
tribution of the divisible surplus Instead
of waiting Until the policy matures to di

It would prevent the building up of Im
mense surplus funds which are alleged to
have been used for corrupt purposes by the
Insurance companies of the east. The op
ponents declared if the bill became a law
the local companies would be badly handi
capped In competitlpq with the eastern
companies, which have already built up
large surplus funds. Venator Sackett, who
led the right for the bill In committee of
the whole, waa sick In bed and unable to
be present, ' .

The senate In committee of -the, whole

bill offered by Senator Aldrlch some tlm
ago aa a companion to 8. F. B, the mea
ure which : permit street railway com
panies to buy and sell securities of Inter
urban railway companies and own, lease
and operate tnterurban line. The street
railway bill was opposed In the senate
by Aldrlch and several others, but they
withdrew' their opposition on the ground
Aldrlch's bill would core the evils they
feared would arise under the street rail
way bill. The Aldrlch measure require
c6mmon curriers before Issuing bond or
other ecu rltles or before buying or selling
the securities of other common carrier
to 'secure the authority of the state rail
way commission. The bill ' is Intended to
prevent the watering of stock or the using
pi srrsei rauway companies a noiaing oom
panle for competing Interurban companies.
The bill was recommended for ' passage
without debate. The house Is said to be
holding up the street railway bill until the
Aldrlch bill reaches It. '

The bill Is S. F. by Patrtek. , and, is

building In the different counties. In some
ways It follows th plan Indorsed by the
Agricultural department at. .Washington.

tW provision was cut out,, owing to the
expense it would involve, and the mem

of road building In their districts and the
old overseer system I abolished. The rood

GOSSIP AMONG THE LEGISLATORS
laelaaa Dealslesi la Ssavt ef Ter
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, March l.ri Special. ) Repre
rontative Clarke today dug up a supreme
court decision which certainly knocks the
props from under oae of the ergurneulg be
ing put up by the railroad lobby In Its ef
fort to defeat th bill providing for the
taxation of railroad Urmlnala The argu
ment which la so effectually knocked, out.
and which ha been so Industriously cir
culated by the railroad lobby, la la effeot
that to ts the rallriMd' property locally In
a town located In a township where rail
road property is already faxed for township
purpneea ta double taxation n would wot
stand the teat of the eourta. The opinion
dug up by Mr. Clarke Is frrrh the supreme
court of Indiana and I directly In Un
with the terminal taxstlon Mil. The cause
I entitled The Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chi
cago St. IjouI Railway company against
the town of Weynetown rt al. It' wa a
suit brought to restrain by Injunction, the
sale of property for the payment of taxes.
In the. syllabus of the opinion th court
said:" ' ' !
The fact that a railroad company paid
taxes to the township epon Its property
lorAted within the corporate limits of a
town will not entitle It to an Inlunctlon
to prevent the town from collecting the
taxes due It.
In the body of the opinion this state
ment Is made:
If the amount of the assessment and com
putation of taxes thereon were correct,
which must be taken as admitted IrS the
absence, of a denial, we cannot perceive
how the appellant Is Injured by the irrea-u-lr1ty
as to say that payment of taxes to
Wayne township on all of it railroad In
that townshln. Including that pert in the
corporate limits of Waynetown, la equally
berren of eoultv. ..
A well-defined rumor Is ' In circulation
that Governor George U Sheldon I re
sponsible for the action ' of the railroads
In accepting the,J-cent fare law without
appenl to the court. . it being taken for
granted all of the road will follow th
example et by the Burlington. It I told
on rellnble authority that Governor Shel
don, who during the' session ha had little
to say., but who ba been sawing some
wSod, wielded the big stick on the giant
corporations Snd forced 'them to come ib
time, and thus saved the state the ex
pense and annoyance or going through th
courts the first thing with the -cent bill.
The big railroad offlcrals appeared before
the governor and asked for a hearing on
the question. It Is told oft goo-1 authority
that the executive waa perfectly willing
to allow the roads to " make any showing
they might desire - but it is said he also
told them their showing 'Would do no rood,
as he himself had studied the matter
pretty thoroughly. The officials wanted th
governor to veto the bill, and he em
phatically refused to grafat this request
Then, it Is said, and there is every reason
to believe the tory Is trtie, the railroad
men offered to put In a 2V4-cent rate If
the governor would refuse to sign the
measure, "but would veto It. Again the
executive showed hi backbone and re
fused, and then he began to do the talk
ing. He demanded that the railroads ac
cept the"?-cent rate without a contest. It
Is the general impression that by giving
the railroad men five day In which to
prepare for the change Governor Sheldon
forced them to consent to take the 1-cent
rate without a court trial. Whether It la
hi due or not, Governor Sheldon I being
congratulated for the outcome of the fight.
The . State Board of Public Lands and
Building ha been organized with Gover
nor Sheldon chairman and Land Commis
sioner Eaton secretary -and the manner of
doing business has been completely revo
lutionised. Heretofore It ha been custo
mary for a state superintendent needing
supplies to buy the same and later get a
permit from" some' member of the board.
The heads of .these Institution have been
Informed that, heceafter they will get the
permit first and ,th .permit will . be la
sued only by the -beard and net by a, par

vogue for so long. ''Jferetofor it ha been

him: ... . -
St. Paul. Minn., March t, 1907 Dear Sen
ator McKesson: The Incloeed clipping from
the Minneapolis Journal attracted my at
tention as It deal with a subject that I
know is of the greatest Importance to the
grain producers of the country. Here In
Minnesota we have the matter of grading
well regulated, but, In-the matter of prices
things are not what they ought to be.
Wherever the line companies prevail there
has been a tendency to underpay, and 1
have thought of Just such a law Ss you
propose. Publicity will do more to check
the evil than anything else. If I am not
asking too much kindly favor me with a
copy of your bill;, our legislature I now
In session and they may take up this mat
ter. I observe that you will require re
ports to the- labor commissioner. Here In
Minnesota we would have these reports sent
to the Railroad and "Warehouse commis
sion who are the supervisor ff the grain
