NEBRASKA CITY. May I (Special.)
From a scholastic standpoint Nebraska
City Is excited as It never was before. In
May, 1902. Prof. Sinclair was elected prin
cipal of the high school and the year fol
lowing was elected superintendent. Since
then there hss been a fight, but Mr. Sin
clair has always succeeded In alighting on
his feet and havtmr a majority of the
board In his favor. In the elections It has
been a contest between the Sinclair and
anti-Sinclair factiona. Monday night the
Board of Education met and the result
was that Dr. Watson, wbo hss been pres
ident for the past eleven years, was de
feated and W. W. Mets elected In his
stesd. D. W. Schmlnke was chosen vice
president and Duncan Maccualg secretary.
Superintendent Sinclair was re-elected and
this so exasperated the students of the
high school that they were not slow In
showing their anger. The vote stood. 4
for Princlpat George E. Martin and f for
Mr. Sinclair.
The announcement of the vote .was
greeted wtth'a school yell of derision: To
show how the students felt eighty-seven
petitioned for the retention of Mr. Martin.
As soon as the board adjourned mock
sessipn of the boaraVwaa held Jn the reg
ular meeting place- of "the board-and then
a large black flag was placed at half mart
over the high school, -the keyholes of the
doors plugged, crapo put on Prof. Martin's
desk, while on Superintendent Sinclair's
desk white crape was used, "On the doors
and on the outside of the building black
crape was used and many of the students
when they entered school this morning
wore crspe on their arms. Nothing haa
stirred the city so much as this affair and
the result is that the schools are "all shot
to pieces." One of the local paper ad
vocate that the auperintendent, the prin
cipal and the entire board resign, call a
special election and attempt to settle the

furious, and yesterday morning the newly
appointed city marshal of the city faction
tempted to make sn arrcat for disturbance
of the peace, but waa quickly given to un

county attorney and sheriff were hastily
summoned and the many threats of whole
sale arrests did not materialise. The county
attorney does not seem to be In harmony
with the so-called law and order faction,
as he has not authorised the arrest they
desire, although It la asserted that they will

The state charge that Pearson planned
and deliberately committed the murder.
Testimony was presented by the defense
this afternoon showing that McCulla had
been Intimate wit It Mrs. Pearson, not
withstanding frequent warnlnga from her
husband. Three times Pearson and Mc
Culla had personal altercations because of
the letter's persistent attentions to Mrs.

LINCOLN, May 8. (Special.) Another
strenuous day waa spent by the State Board
of Assessment listening to arguments from
railroad tax agent who were here to ex
plain their reports, answer questions and
put la a good word for a reduction or
against an Increase this year. T. A. Pol
lev of the Omsha road delivered the prin
cipal address; 8. I Hlghleyman repre
sented the Missouri Pacific, and Frank P.
Crandon and Carl C. Wright Spoke for
the Northwestern.
While spesking particularly In the Inter
est of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis
A Omaha road, Mr. Polleya dug deep Into
the assessment of railroad rroperty In gen
eral, considering as he went along the
value of other property In Nebraska. He
quoted extensively from Prof. Davlsson, the
"eminent statistician" of the stste uni
versity and head of the Nebraska Agri
cultural college, who. though his figures
hsd been criticised by The Omaha Bee.
Mr. Pollers said had been sustained by
the census report. In conclusion Mr. Pol
leys said he believed be had established the

000.000, and yet the aggregate value nt which
such railroad property wss assessed by
this board In 1906 was nearly r40.noo,ow.

whole shall be placed by the board thla
vear Into proper relation with general
nronertv. other than railroads, bv a sun

road assessment of the state. It will Mill
be possible for the board to so spportlon
the aggregate railroad assessment amon

shall bear Its proper portion and no more
than Its proper portion of such aggregate
. If the es-sTcaate railroad assessment
In Nebraska for 1!07 shall be properly

eral railroads of the state, the assessed
value per mile of the Nebraska lines of the
Omaha company win not sunsrantinuy ex
reed DO ier cent of the averare assessed
value per mile fixed for ail railroads of
the stste considered as a unit.
Mr. Polley worked out the value of the
Omaha road on the stock and bond theory;
combined gross and net earnings and the
capitalisation of the net earning with
the following result:
Stock and bond value. 882.690.851 or 848.JRB
per mile.
Combined gross and net earnings value,
8X0 530.3.W or U7.0T per mile.
Capitalised actual net earning value,

Hlghleysaen Dodares Questions.
8. L. Highleymen took a ' seat and dis
cussed the Missouri Pacific in that St. Louis
fatherly way of his and sidestepped grace
fully a number of questions asked him by
Governor Sheldon and other members of
the board. Especially was thl true when
the governor asked him what constituted
operating expenses and he said an expert
should .be called In to discuss that ques
tion and again when he waa asked If It
were -wot true that hi -freight rate were
higher In Nebraska than in the other states
through which his road ran.
"Really, now," he exclaimed, throwing
up both hands, "don't ask me about freight
rates. That Is really out of my line and I
have all the trouble I can look after."
Mr. Hlghleyman. however, assured the
board - he had no grievance against Ne
braska or the board, for hi road had been
fairly treated, "except, of course. It as
sessment wa really too high." But he
said his road had the confidence of the peo
ple, for with all the talk against railroads
not a word had been said against his road.
"I trust the people every time," he said,
"and you politicians will find that the best
plan, too," he advised with a smile.
The speaker assured the board steel was no
higher now than five years ago, though he
was not sure what the Missouri Pacific
could be reconstructed for, when it was
suggested such a thing would be appreci
ated In some parts of the state. The tax
agent told the board his road waa merely
a neighborhood affair, especially from Su
perior to Prosser, and was run only to ac
commodate the neighbor out there and It
had never paid. ,
C. C. Wright, although on the Omaha
city payroll a a city official, wa here as
a railroad attorney to get the aasesament
of the Northwestern road reduced. He
devoted a great deal of hie time to dis
cussing proper distributive value. By any
method employed to find the value of a
railroad system he said Nebraska should
bentltled to not more than 827,000 to
(MO and at the outside at 830.ono a mile.
The Northwestern Is now valued at 832,500
a mile. For the system Mr. Wright said
It was over 8t0,fl00 a mile. Mr. Crandon
will talk to the board tomorrow, at which
time the Vnion Pacific will be on hand for
a hearing.
Passle for Railway CesBsalaslow.
The State Railway commission will
shortly ssk Attorney General Thompson
for an opinion as to whether a rate put In
now by the commission will operate In
any way to prevent the reduction pro
vided for by the maximum freight rate
law enacted by the legislature and the 25
per cent reduction in express charges pro
vided for by the legislative body. The
commission haa an Idea that the rate it
puts Into effect will prevent the operation
of the two laws. This matter was brought
to the attention of the rate making body
yesterday afternoon, when representatives
of the express companies demanded that a
rate be fixed at that session of the com
mission. One of the men said he had
corns all the way from New York to attend
the meeting because the notification he
had received specified that rates were
made on that day. The eommlaalon, how
ever was not ready to act and postponed
making the schedule of rates, with the
result that probably a second hearing will
have to be given the express men as well
as railroad men. In the meantime the
oommlaslon wanta to know Just where It
stands when It comes to making a rate
before the maximum freight rate law goes
Into effect The trouble all arises over the
fact the maximum freight rate law did not
carry the emergency clause arid i not
operative until July A

Kearney people. Attorney General Thomp- i
aon wanted Governor Sheldon to testify,
and when the latter was notified by Deputy
Cierk Seymour, the governor said he was
busy on the assessment board and would
not testify unless served with a summons
from the court. When this was announced
In the court room, It riled up Judge Sin
clair of Kearney.
"Well, he can go to hell then." said the
Judge, but seeing the young woman steno
grapher sitting at the table, he put the
soft pedal on the last word. Just at that
time Attorney General Thompson came
back Into the room.
"The governor sent word that he would
not come unless a bailiff was sent for
him," said Judge Sinclair, "and I said he
could go to hell, but I do not want to use
uch a word before a young woman, so
he doesn't have to go unless he wants to.
The suggestion Is by no means mandatory."
And so every one laughed. Thoma Hamer
said the remark would be endorsed by ,dX
people In Kearney, but he amlled when he
said It

he had received the bill with the gover
nor' veto April 11, though the governor
had telephoned him the night previous
that he had vetoed it A B. Allen,
secretary to the governor said the
bill had been received in nis
office at 2:45 o'clock on the afternoon of
April 4. When asked If he had not signed
a receipt showing the bill had . been re
ceived at 11:45 on April 4, Mr. Allen ald
he did not know. He aald he and the gov
ernor had discussed the time of receipt
ing bills and acting on the theory that
the legislature wa to adjourn on the aft
ernoon of April 4. some of the bills were
receipted as though they reached the ex
ecutive pi lor to th hour of recorded ad
inurnment, thoush their own records
showed the actual time of the receipt of
measures. After the assessment board ad- :
Journed Governor Sheldon went to the j
court room and testified that the leglsla- j
ture actually adjourned on Saturday after- j
noon, April 6, and that he had received
Mils and communications from that body
after April 4, the official adjournment day.
T. F. Hamer, Judge Oldham and Judge
Sinclair, acting for some one In Kearney. ;
are trying to show that the governor had
the bill for more than five days prior to
taking action on It and therefore his veto j
is of no effect. The case will be submitted ;
