LINCOLN, Ally K.-(Spec!aI.) This was
Burlington day before the State Board of
k-rtasesstnent and during. most of -the after
J noon Tax Commissioner R. D. Pollard
JtacuiMd tbavaja oi ,bl road wlln. the
r trie-fibers. After he concluded Tax Com
r piJealbner Bcribner of tbe fnlon Pacific
apded . tew words to .his arguments of
yesterday. Tbe board has decided to stop
the hearings next Wednesday. It will
bold no more meetings until Tuesday
morning, and that day and Wednesday the
Great Weatern, the Omaha Bridge A
Terminal .companies and some others will
he given a chance.
In beginning hta talk Mr. Pollard said
in VMS the board bad found tbe tangible
property of the Burlington to be worth
$18,211 per mile and the Intangible prop
erty I19.5J8; that 1. the board had kidded
(or franchise value 101 per cent, making

so that Nebraska got one and a quarter
mile, for every mile, thus adding about
20 per cent tq the income of the stats to
which it Is not entitled." Tbe freight
earnings, be said, amounted to about 71.57
per cent of the total earnings, or J,717,
862 73 in Nebraska, of which 20 per cent
equals 12,742,472.55, so that allowing the
arbitrary of four-tenths of one mile the
road earned in Nebraska f4.836.M4.t2 or
Il.SSJ per mile, which, capitalized at
per cent, would make the property worth
a little more than $30,000 a mile for 1907.
He opposed as unfair placing a mileage
value on the road In Nebraska based on
the value of the stocks and bonds. The
bonds, he ' said, were Issued on specific
portions of the road and the bonded In
debtedness In . Nebraska Is tV.06L4S
mile. The ' bonded Indebtedness . of
the entire ' system. leas ths sink
ing fund, , Is fl4S,114.S8T.7. The bonded
Indebtedness In Nebraska after deducting
the sinking fund. Is 2,2T2,91.U or 17 f-10
per cent of the total.' The came proportion
of the stock, he argued, , should be ac
credited to tbe Nebraska line. The . total
stock, tllO.S39.100. at (145 a share equals
1160.716,636. Less property which haa not
and will not : be assessed by any state
board. $32.6C2,4S0.22. leaves a balance of
1128,054,215. Nebraska's portion would be
122.666. 596.50 or $8,680 a mile. This added
to the bonds would make the stocks and
bonds value In -Nebraska $18,741.43 per mile.
Ul on Vat formttr.
Mr. Pollard made numerous comparisons
of the assessment of the Burlington with
other property In the state to show that the
rule of uniformity does not apply in the
matter of taxation. To show that his road
paid the greater portloa of all the taxes
In the western portion of the state took
from the auditor's report a table of coun
ties through which only the Burlington
runs. la the counties the percentage of
taxes paid by the road la as follows:
Thomas. 64; nooker, 70; Grant. 41: Dundy,
; Perkins, 40; Box Butte, 2S; Hltchoock.
SI. In showing the number of head of live
stock which he alleged escaped taxation In
several counties of the state, Mr, Pollard
took the census report for 1900 and com
pared It with the assessment of 1904. Tak
ing up the - assessment of real estate, Mr.
Pollard filed a table with the. board show
ing the transfers compared with the as
sessment, showing that the full assessment
was the following per cent of the land
transferred: Red Willow, 9 per cent; Rich
ardson, U per cent; Johnson. 71 per cent;
Harlan, 41 per cent Kearney, M per cent;
Clay, 60 per cent; Phelpe, 45 per cent;
Dundy, SO per cent; Cuur. & per cent;
Furnas, S8 per cent; FranViT. X per cent;
Adams, 54 per cent; BaimOk 71 ' per cent;
Pawnee, 71 per cent.
"Supposing you find on a nMck and bond
basis that our road Is worJJ $18,741 a mils
and that you find the tangible property to
be worth $19,212 a mile, and on an earning
basis $30,000 a mile, would not an assessed
Valuation of $22,651 per mile meet the re
quirements of the statute. Instead of fix
ing an assessment of $28,745 per mile, aa was

Serttkaer Qaotes the Law.
Tax Commissioner A. W. Bcribner of tbe
Cnlon Pacific, who remained over from
yesterday, talked for a few minutes to the
board this afternoon and called attention
to a decision by Justice Brewer of ths
United States suprems court, which said
among other things: "If railroad companies
Insist that their property Is of a certain
value for the purpose of determining what
are reasonable maximum charges for ths
transportstlon of paasengers and carrying
of freight, they have no ground ef com
plaint If the same property Is assessed
at the same value for taxation purposes.
The same property cannot Hrhtfully be val
ued at one sum for one of the purposes
mentioned and at a different amount for
the other. Tbe state Is too just in the ad
ministration of Its laws to Insist that rail
rxd property shojld for tsxatlon be con
sidered as of very great value, and for the
, purpose of regulating rates to be charged
by such corporations as common carriers.

court, authorising his trial by Jury for In
sanity, granted him a respite for two years.
The time will be up June 15, and so far as
known no step has yet been taken to bring
about the hearing.
