(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, May 1. (Special.) The Bute
Railway commiaslon haa written to the
Interstate Commerce commission regarding
the right of railroads to charge a higher
rate for through traffic than the total of
the rates In the several states. Though the
letter waa written eeveral daye ago no an
awer haa yet been received, but a decision
from the higher body Is expected any time.
Should the national commission hold as the
state commission hopea It will, hereafter
railroads in Nebraska cannot charge 3
cents a mile for interstate travel, when
the local rates In the statea traversed ia
less than I cents. In tha meantime the
commiaslon haa.. written to the Union Pa
cific passenger department asking If the
Union Pacific intends to keep on selling
tickets for 3 cents a mile between Ne
braska points when the train mna over
Into an adjoining state In going from one
Nebraska point to another. Should the
Union Pacific Insist on charging the $ cent
rate, this matter also will be referred to the
national commission and the local commis
sion believes the result will be an order
from the former that no through rate caA
exceed the total of the local rates.
From the letters being exchanged by the
commission and the passenger department
of the Union Pacific it Is very evident the
two bodies have not started off on the
same footing. Some time ago the commission
sent a letter to the railroad calling its at
tention to the 3 cent rate It was charging
between North Platte and Sidney. The
opinion of the attorney general was cited
by the commission that the railroad had no
right to do this. Very shortly the answer
enme back that the company, when In need
of legal advice, would consult John N. Bald
win, the head of the legal department, and
not the attorney general of the state. Sev
eral such pleasantries have been exchanged,
but so far no overt act haa been committed
The big day frix the commission will be
May 7. when a schedule of rates will be
adopted and put Into effeot. The railroad
men have been notified of this meeting and
are expected to be on hand and offer objne
tions or suggestions and to look after their
own Interests. On the other hand the com
mission haa on file numerous complaints,
more or less serious, which will be shown
to the railroad men and which they will be
asked to correct.

Milwaukee Protests Assessment.
A. S. Dudley, tax commissioner of tho
Milwaukee railroad, has raised the ques
tion of the right of the Slate Board of As
sessment to assess railroads which come
lno Nebraska over leased lines and have
no local property in the state except the
right to use the tracks of some other rail
road. With his report filed with the board
today Mr. Dudley sent a statement, as fpl
lows: The law for the assessment of railroads
provides that the situs of the valuation
of any company shall be fixed by a refer
ence to the KcatlOD of its mnln track
mileage. This company neither owns,
operad's nor controls any mileage In your
state, but under a contract with the Union
Pucirio railroad has "trackage rights" on
the line of that company across the river
into Omaha. As we have no mileage, the
alius of our valuation has been fixed by
a referenced to our "trackage rights," ap
parently, and the valuation has been al
lotted to the city of Omaha. Yet the Rock
Island Railroad company, which has ex
actly the same trackage rights into the
city of Omaha on the Union Pacific com
pany's tracks. Is not taxed at all In. the
city of Omaha, In other words, "track
ago rights" has been used In the ease of
this company and has not been used in
the case of any company owning mileage
also as a method of distributing the valu
ation. My position has been that the assessment
of the Union Pacific company should cover
any "trackage rights" that another com
pany might have in its mileage; and this
view seems to nie to be strengthened by the
fact that where a comany has only "track
age rights" the statute does not provide
a method of locating a valuation for such
company. The L'Won Pacific company in
allowing the use of Its terminals at Omaha
by other companies stipulates for a division
of the taxes, which presumably ore greater
than if the use of the terminals were re
stricted to the Union Pacific company.
i am hoi uursuonuiK tna validity of an
assessment to this company. Vet the Rock
Island company and the Bt. Paul com
pany both enter the city of Omaha over
the tracks of the Union Pacific company,
both companies having merely- "trackage
rights." and the Uoek Island company Is
not taxed In Omaha and the St. Paul com
The Bt. Paul company does not wish to
be technical; there may be some property
of the company subject to taxation in your
state, possibly rolling stock, though this
is used exclusively In interstate traffic, and
we have paid the taxes levied on the as
sessments of the last two years, though
ss I have suggested, there Is a question
aa tq whether the atatute provldea a situs
for any valuation.
Mr. Dudley closed his letter with the re
quest that his road be assessed less this
year than last year. If the board still held
that It had jurisdiction.
Tho net earnings of this road for the
last year amounted to S20,G64,699.23, and It
spent In operation, maintenance and Im
provements, $37,324,7W.6S. making a total
gross earning of $57,079,3.8. The oompany
was assessed at 310,000 last year.
Despaln Labor Commissioner.
Don C. Dee pain was appointed labor com
missioner this afternoon and J. C. Derby
of Lincoln was appointed Janitor at the
executive mansion. Despain's commission
reads from May 1 to December 31, 1907, and
his appointment,' it is understood, was at
the urgent request of Senator Norris
Brown, and It was limited to eight months
because In that time, it Is understood. Sen
ator Brown will be able to find a place
for Despaln In Washington or somewhere
else. For four years Despaln has been
chief clerk In the office of the labor commis
sioner, but the recent legislature abolished
this ofilce by cutting out the salary for
a chief clerk. Senator Brown Is under ob
ligations to Despaln for assistance In run
ning a press bureau for him previous to
the state convention, but the senator Just
at this time was unable to take care of
Despaln, and ao prevailed upon Governor
Sheldon to do ao, and lnaamuch as the gov
ernor had already handed Senator Brown
a package on the Kearney Normal veto, the
Deepaln appointment Is suppoaed to be a
aort of consolation.

NEBRASKA CITY PEOPLE ANGRY

I'nless New Depot la Bnllt.
NEBRASKA CITY, May 1. (Special.)
For marry years the people of this city
have been demanding of the Burlington
a new station building at this point. Last
year plans were drawn for a new depot,
which did not meet the approval of the
citizens and through the efforts of the
Commercial club new plans were made and
the promise g'en that during the coming
summer the UtDot would be erected. This
was very satisfactory to the people and
all were patting the Burlington on the
back. But' now comes a letter to John V.
Btelnhart, president of the Commercial
club, in which Mr. Hoidrege says:
I doubt the possibility of obtaining an
appropriation for the proposed passenger
station in your city. Investors are so dis
inclined, under present circumstancps. to
fiut money Into railroad securities, that It
h Important that nil of the railroads should
know more definitely what. If any, not
revenue can be secured under the new
laws, before making lr vestments that are
not sbsolutely necessary. I am sorry that
it aeema to be necesHary to postpone the
construction of this building.
This letter Is far from meeting the ap
proval of citlxens and many of the business
men favor adopting the plan of York
shutting off all patronage until the com
pany grants the favor promised. The Com
mercial club will take up the matter at its
next meeting. As this is the best com
mercial point on the line outside of Omaha
and Lincoln, a little heroic treatment would
cost the company more than two depots.
