LINCOLN. April SO. (Special.) The Btate
Railway, 'commission will makt a schedule
of rates for all railroads In Nebraska on
May T. A circular was sent out bj the
commission today to all the railroads noti
fying them of this fact and calling their
attention to the' law which requires the
roads to file their schedules of rates with
the commission. This has not been done,
but the circular calls attention to the pen
alty provided for a failure to do this. Tho
circular Is as follows:
Whereas, Section five of the railway
cnmmlnaton act makes It the duty of this
commission to fix a schedule and classifi
cation of rates and charges for the trans
portation of freight, etc., between the dif
ferent polqtn wltnln this state; and
Whereas, The said law requires the 'com
mon carrier doing business In this stnte
to rile with this commission on or before
April J7, 1907, all freight and passenger
approve an appropriation for liO.noo. Oould
of Greeley, who was a member of the
senate finance committee, suggested cutting
the appropriation to fS.onfi, and he suc
ceeded In grttlr.g the committee to rec
ommend this amount. Again the governor
sent -word-to the Kearney lobbyists that
they could not get more than IVi.ooO. Luther
P. Luddcn, a member of the State Normal
board. Insisted that the Kearney member
accept liAflno. A meeting of the Normal
board was held and the appropriation was
discussed. At this meeting Ludden rec
ommended ths $.v,oo, but' Oregg and
Thomas would not stand for It. but ar
gued thnt If they could get the bill through
not for what we have used, but lor what
we )Hve wasted.
For the nation as for ths man or womsn
snd the boy or girl, the road to success is
the right ue of what we have and the
Improvement of present opportunities. If
you neglect to prepare youisell now tor
the dunes and renponslbllitles which will
tall upon you later; II you do not learn
the tnmgs which you will need to know
when your school days are over, you will
sulier the consequences. So any nation
which In Its youth lives only for the day,
reaps without sowing, and consumes with
out, husbanding, must expect the penalty
of the prodigal, whose labor could with
difficulty find him the hare means of life.
A people without children would face a
hopeless future; a country without trees
Is almost as helpless; forests which are
so used that they cannot renew themselves
will soon vanish, and with them all their
benefits. A true forest la not merely a

to cut out ISrt.OOO. and he did. the normal

How Board Members Feel.
As to whether the Normal school needed
the 1100.000 or not. the members of the State
Normal School boarr" are the best
j Judges. Member McBrlen, state su
j perlniendent. was for ' a bill carrying

ber of the board,, was In favor of
the appropriation for fBO.ooo and urged
Oregg and Thomns to accept thnt amount.
schedules, classification, rates, ' tariffs and i other member of the board, so far as
the records show, waji here looking after
the larger appropriation. Gregg was ths
only one who made a flght for It Hon.
Peter Mortensen. for four years n member
of the board, was opposed to the $100,000
and publicly said $15,000 would be sufficient
for the needs of the school. Members of
thethouse understood the governor would
veto the appropriation if It were over 160,030.
and It Is the general belief that It could
never have passed the house, and senate
except for the public Information that the
governor would not approve the measure.
It was eeml-publlc property that the Kear
ney member of the board expected Norris

Whereas, It is Impossible to make a re

' For the purpose of, complying with the
law and 'n order to establish a basis for

Notice Is hereby given to all common
carriers and shippers doing business within

Commission of Nebraska will, on the 7th

Nebraska, ' consider the question of fixing
rates, schedules, classifications, tariffs and
charges for the transportation of merchan

, Attention .Is also tailed to sub-section
C) of section li of the said act, which
provides that It shall be unlawful for any
railway company or common carrier to
charge any rate, schedule, or classification
' until application has been made to the
railway commission and permission' had
for that purpose. Any railway company
or common carrier violating this provision
shall be deemed gallty of a misdemeanor,
and on , conviction thereof shall be fined
In any sum not exceeding ten thousand

In an opinion given to the county attor
ney of Cass county Attorney General
Thompson today held that It Is unlawful
Under the nntl-pasa law for an attorney
employed less than half of his time by a
railroad to receive free transportation, even
though he Is subject to call at any time
by the corporation and It has first call on
Ms services. He holds that the Intent of
the legislature was to prevent anyone not
exempted Yrom the provisions of the law
from receiving transportation at less than
tho rates charged the general public.
Kearney Mea to Blame.
' Inasmuch bs some people at Kearney be
came 1 so Incensed at the action of Gov
ernor Sheldon In vetoing the normal school
appropriation of $85,000 that they hanged
the editor of the Kearney Democrat In
effigy because he upheld the chief execu
tive of the state In his action, It Is be
lleved here that the people of Kearney are
not acquainted with the facts In the case
and , they are venting their anger on the
wrong person, and therefore the (acts
should be published and ths blame placed
on C. H. Oregg and A. O. Thomas, who
were In reality the men who kept Kearney
from getting an appropriation. One who
was here during the entire legislature and
kept close tab on this particular measure
gave the following history of the Kearney
"The bill as Introduced carried an appro
priation of $100,000 and t passed the house.
All of this time Gregg and Thomas were
in Lincoln working for the bill. When It
reached the senate Governor Sheldon pub
licly stated he would not permit any ap
propriation to go through In excess of the
estimated revenue of the state and that he
would not sign a bill carrying $100,000 for
the Kearney normal. He did say publicly,
however, and be said It to Gregg and

board ffels about the veto, the following
statement from Superintendent McBrlen is
"It mle-M not be out of place here to call
attention to what the state has done for
the State Normal school at Kearney as
compared with what It has done for the
Btate Normal at Peru. The legislature of
1003 appropriated $60,000 for a normal achool
building at Kearney; In 1906 $15,000 for a
heating plant there, making a total .of
$fio,0OO. The propoaal of the citlsens of
Kearney to the Board of Education of the
State Normal schools to locate the new
State Normal school there contained the
following subsidy: (a) Twenty-acre site,
$10,000; (b) Green Terrace building, $50,000;
(c) Repairing Green Terrace buUding.
$1,000; (d)Water right from Lake Kearney,
$10,000; (e) Saving to state for sewer system
and water mains, $20,000, total $91,000. Tho
members of the -executive committee, speak
lng fof the citlsens of Kearney, IrV. their
proposal said: , 'This amount i$!l,00Cl being
a conservative estimate of the coit to the
state for providing these necessary essen
tials.' This $01,000, plus $66,000. makes $15,
000, amount of the state's property in the
State Normal school at Kearney."
"In the beginning of Peru, Mount Vernon
hall, built In 1866 by subscriptions amount
ing to $8,000, and a site valued at about
$1,000,- were given to the stat when tne
normal" school waa established there a year
later. The appropriations by the state have
been as follows: (a) In 18C, for completion
of dormitory already started by subscrip
tion. $10,CO0; (b) In 1872, north wing main
hiiii.iinr 128.000: ic . In. 1873. power house.
$3,000; (d) In 1877, library building, frame,
$1&,000; (e) In 1885, south wing main build
ing, $20,000; (f) in 1897, dormitory to replaoe
old one destroyed by fire, $20,000; (g) in 1903,
new chapel, $42,500; (h) in lu6. new library.
$32,000; (I) In 1905, remodeling old library
for science hall, $2,800; (J) In 1907. heating
plant. $26,000; total. Including site and Origi
nal Mount Vernon hall. $207,300.
Comparison of Two Schools.
"In four years the state has made a per
manent Investment of $150,000 at Kearney.
In forty, years It has made a permanent
Investment of $207,300 at Peru. Peru has
had to turn away mf.i students than Kear
ney during the laaC year. Under the in
creased entrance requirements at the State
Normal schools, Kearney will be no more
crowded than Peru during the current bien
nlum. In the light of the facts set forth
herein, it Is safe to say that the real
danger to the success of the Btate Normal
school at Kearney lies not In the veto of
Governor Sheldon, but In the attitude of ths
Kearney Hub and the Fremont Herald.
We want the State Normal schools, both
at Kearney and at Peru, to prosper and
to grow greater In, their Influence and
power for good from year to year. In my
opinion the -next leglalature should make
an appropriation of $50,000 for new build
ings at each of these schools. But no eau-
cattonal Institution, public or private, must
be promoted at the expense of the common
schools. The common schools have waited
long and patiently for their hearing, and
the people of the state, regardless' of po
litical affiliations, will approve the action
of the last legislature and Governor Shel
don In their attitude toward the common
schools, which are of, by and for the peo

they had run away with some young men.
About 11 o'clock one of the parties who
drove out discovered them In the hills
