LINCOLN. April 27 Special.) "Will the
State university be compelled to struggle
along until the latter part of thla year or
the flmt of next on the few thousand of
dollars which In the meantime come In from
the levies of 1906 and 19U6?" Thla la the
question confronting the university authori
ties, the state auditor and tha attorney
In looking over the bill appropriating the
university 1-mtll levy Auditor fV-arle dis
covered a peculiar wording, entirely dif
ferent from any bill of similar character
previously passed. The exact wording of
the essential paragraph Is:
The proceeds of the university tax for
the years 1907 and 1S" and so much of the
proceeds of the 1-mlll levy tax for the
years 1!JS and 1901 as was not appropriated
at the lust session of the legislature are
hereby appropriated for the blennlum end
ing March 31, 1io9, to the use of the Btate
university for current expenses, buildings
and permanent Improvements, aa directed
in section 11. chapter Ixxxvil. compiled
Btatutcs uf Nebraska for the year V.f.
Auditor Bearle Is Impressed with the Idea,
that there could be no "ptocoeds" of" a tax
until at leant some portion of that tax
was collected. In the past these bills have
Appropriated specific sums, but this one
appropriates the proceeds of the tax and
those proceeds will not have been received
until late In the year. Th matter waa
laid before Attorney General Thompson
who said the deal was an entirely new
one, without precedent upon which to act.
The uudltor atates that the sum which
will be available from the university taxes
of Wo and 190 will be Insignificant and If
nothing can be used from the 190T levy
until It Is collected, it will work a great
hardKhlp to the university.
The university has, however, the Morrill
fund, the cash fund collected for various
purpose and aoma other funds on which
to draw. -
The Burlington railroad and the Omaha
Btreet Railway company, by their failure
to file tariff achedules with the Btate
Railway commission todny are In default
of the law and may. If the commission so
elects, be subjected to a fine of 126.000 In
accordance to the provisions of the statute.
The law enacted by the last legislature
fixes April 27 of each year as the last day
of grace for the filing of all rate schedules
by public service corporations. The sched
ules have been coming In during the week
at a lively rate, most of the big corpora
tions delaying until the last minute. When
the office of the commission was closed
tonight ft was announced that the Bur
lington and the Omaha Btreet Railway
were In default. The commissioners stated
tonight, however, that officials of the
Burlington had aent word that their ached
ules aro on the way and drastic steps by
the commission are not considered likely
in case the delinquent road has Its
schedules on Hie early next week.
The 'Omaha Btreet Railway, however, waa
given due advice of the requirements of
the law, but it has no deemed the mat
ter of sufficient Importance to even reply
to the commission's notlcet and unless a
natlsfactory explanation Is forthcoming
the; penalty may be enacted.
