LINCOLN. Asrll . (Special.) A gen
eral shake-up of passenger rates In Ne
braska la promised as one result of the
Inauguration of the l-cent fsre law. LAst
week the Northwestern railroad applied to
the State Railway commission and wae
given permission to Install the short line
rate between Lincoln and Omaha, In order
that It might compete for business with the
Burlington, which haa tha ahort haul and
has been capturing practically all of the
business. The Burlington fare between the
metropolis and the capital city Is $1.10. It
la now stated that the Rock Island Is to go
before the commission tomorrow with no
tice that It will meet the Burlington rata.
The Rock Island mileage between the two
points la sixty miles, compared with fifty
five on the Burlington, while that of the
Northwestern Is ninety miles. With the
Rock Island and Northwestern collecting
only tl.lo for the Omaha-Lincoln Journey,
the fare for that trip will be cut consider
ably below the t-cent basis.

Rptnonntranpea Withdrawn After Sa
loon Mem Make Concession
WEST POINT. Neb.. April 2. (Special.)
Remonst:nnce8 were filed against each of
the nine applicants for saloon license in
West Flint. The principal grounds for the
remonstrances are that the liquor notices
were not published In the paper ha,vlnT
the largest circulation within the county;
that the petitions for licenses were not on
file during the period of publication; .'that
the applicants, with two exceptions, hud
violated the section of the Slocumb law
which fcrblds the une of blinds, screens,
etc. Thla action of the remonstratora
caused quite a little excltmert In the city
for a time, it being almost unprecedented
In West Point, where the saloon and brew
ery InterestB are strong. However, an
agreement was finally reached by the op
posing parties, who made mutual conces
sions, with the result that the remon
strances were withdrawn and the licenses
will be granted, as prayed for. The net re
sult of the movement Is the total abolition
of blinds and screens In the snloons, every
one of them having removed these obstruc
tions, allowing an uninterrupted view of
the interior from the street.
