lloldrege Case.
"I think Judges W. H. and T. C. Munger
will reverse the decision of Judge T. C.
Munger in granting the temporary re
straining order which preventa the com
mission's Tate schedule from going Into ef
fect," said Henry T. Clarke, Jr., state
railroad commissioner, who Is up from
Lincoln. "We feel confident ef this and
that when the hearing comes up Ht-ptem-ber
23 the court will see that the commis
sion is right and the railroads are wrong
and the. reduced freight rates will go Into
effect. ,
"I want to say this: The railroads ran
for cover before they were stung In apply
ing for this Injunction. I see an Inter
view in The Boo by one railroad attorney,
Mr. Kelby of the Burlington, In which he
aeeks to lay all the blame on the commis
sion to make it appear the commission
foroed the railroads Into court. That is
all wrpng. The commission's purpose and
determination has been, from the first,
and It la yet, to be considerate wltn the
railroads; that Is, not to take any unfair
advantage-of them In the matter of the
enforcement of new rates or regulations.
We realise tha railroads will require time
to adjust themselves and their affairs to
new conditions and we have never given
them any license to draw a different in
ference. They Jumped at conclusions and
hastened to seek refuge In the courts be
fore they had any just cause. They have
not yet been hit by the force they are
dodging. They have plenty of time to
wait before running to cover."
Mr. Clarke said he did not care to make
a statement regarding the case of Gen
eral Manager Holdrege and the filing of
the pasa list by the Burlington, over
which some talk of Irregularity has sprung
up. That Is a matter, he said, which the
commissioners cannot discuss now.
Connell at Fremont Adopt Resolution
Condemning Overland' Policy
FREMONT, Neb., Sept. 12.-(8peclal.)-It
was the Union Paclflo against the United
Commercial Travelers represented In the
local council last night.
Tha meeting was largely attendul and
the following resolutions passed by a unan
imous vote:
Whereas, The Chicago A. Northwestern
and the I!. A M. railroads In Nebraska
have manifested the proper appreciation of
the greatness and prosperity of the terri
tory from which they draw their financial
support, and have evinced a desire and a
readiness to increase their passenger and
freight facilities to keep pace with the
rapid growth of the towns and country
tributary to their lines; therefore, be It
Resolved, That we express our hearty
appreciation of their efforts to accommo
date the people of Nebraska, and that wo
show this appreciation by diverting to
these lines at competing points all freight
shipments that we can control, wherever
possible; and, further.
Whereas. The Union Pacific railroad Is
showing an Increasing disregard dally for
the convenience or welfare of the million
Seople who live along that line from
maha to Cheyenne, and have lately man
ifested their contempt for the traveling
public by making arbitrary rules without
the sanction of law or common sense, ex
cluding travelera from Council Hlnir la
and all Nebraska points from five of tbelr
beat trains, and have refused and 'neg
lected to substitute other trains for those
withdrawn from public service, and have
so arranged their train schedules that the
trains which do carry passengers follow
one another so closely that they have the
force and effect of one train onlv run in
sections, which do not connect with the
branch lines of the system at Junction
polnta; therefore, bo It further
Resolved. That we deplore thla utter dis
regard of the rlahts of the people aa shown
by said I'nlon Pacific railroad, and Its ef.
feet upon the people so outraged Is stirring
up strife and embittering them to the ex
tent of still further widening the breach
created when the I'nlon Pacific refused to
pay taxes In Nebraska and committed
other nets hostile to the Interests of the
people whose patronage haa made said road
the bvst pRvlng piece of railroad property
In the world.
Resolved. Thst a copy of these resolu
tions be furnished the public press and

"This thing of swesring oft ton smoking
for a month isn't as easy aa it's crackad
up to be," said the young man who stood
on a Far nam street corner. "I'm lust
rounding out my third week and I've got
ten days to go yet. Don't, know whether
I'll hold out or not. . ,
"You see. It's this way. The follows that
keep tho smoke houses have become so
diabolically clever the ge.t up all kinds of
things to assail a poor man that's trying
to be virtuous In this special line. There's
a fellow down here a block or so who gets
the most tempting things Into his window
to ruin Just such a -man as me. For a
week he'a had a sort of -a new kind of
pipe In there. It has glass at the stem
so that you can see Uie mok circulating
around and getting purged. of all the nico
tine before It gets Into your mouth.' He
has signs there explaining that the smoke
out of that pipe couldn't harm a newborn
bnbe and ttat It was actually a benefit to
the health killed the germs that were
floating In the air.
"Well, sir. I stood by t1vt window and
got enchanted. I looked at the pipes and
read the alvePllaemnt and then my eye
wandered up to a fine colored picture
showing a man smoking one of them. His
wife was sitting on the other side of the
table doing some fancy work or something
and the man was reading his paper and
smoking one of those pipes. Well, sir. It
all looked so hartnless that I walked right
Into the smoke house and before I knew It
I had bought one of them. It wasn't till I
came otit that I remembered I had sworn
It's Ortalnlr Awful.
"It was awful.-' There I was with the life
preserving pipe in my hand and my smoke
time two weeks off yet. I tried to reason
myself out of my' pledge, but I had prom
ised several people not to- smoke and had
made a bet about it, .so what could I do?
And I wouldn't smoke eir the sly. Well, I
finally took the package back and left It
there, saving I was going out of town snd
would call for It In a few' days.
"Well, today I passed, that same shop
and they've put some new pipes In the
window. They're' some of, these clay ones
with stems about two feet long. The stems
cool the smoke and make It so It doesn't
bite the tongue. That's what the adver
tisement says:
"When I caught eight, of the chlbooks I
Just had to stop. I didn't want to go, but
my feet Just carried me up to the window.
They have a new picture In. the. window.
It shows n Jolly old bald-headed geezer sit

room with his feet sfretched out to the

buy one of the pipes, but I lert It there to

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12.-Practleal agrre-
ments on the main polnta and general
good will marked the preliminary meeting
today of the five Central American repub-
l'cs to carry out the suggestion of the
L'nlted States and Mexico for a permanent
peace understanding. After a session of
several hours the conference was ad
journed until Monday next. The govern
ments represented were Costa Rica, Nicar
agua, Guatemala, Salvador and Honduras.
Assistant Secretary of State Adee of the I
I'nlted States and Senor Godoy of Mexico
were present. The only point on which
any hitch occurred was that ' relating to
the protocol to be signed. Two of the
Central American representatives were
without authority to sign the' document
without first submitting It to their gov
ernments. One of these said It was pos
sible that this might Involve some trouble
und perhaps the changing of the protocol
In some important particulars. Some delay
therefore is expected to be caused by rea
son of this fact. It Is not doubted, however.
that a permanent peace pact will be en
tered Into.
"Everything was exceedingly encour
aging," said Mr. Adee tonight, "and the
utmost good nature prevailed."

sist In Ianorlnar Two-Cent
Fare Order.
TOPEKA, Kan., Sept. 12. Kansas poli
ticians are strongly of tha opinion that
Governor Hoch will call a special session
of tha legislature if the railroads persist
In their determination to Ignore the 3-cnnt
fare order. The governor has not been
notified of the action of the roads except
through the newspapers. He doclsres that
Kansas will have a 2-cent fare or It will
be cancelled In states around it. A confer
ence was held between Oovernor Hoch,
Attorney General Jackson and G. F. Orat

missioners, this afternoon. It Is understood
thst if the railroads fight along lines of the
resolution adopted In Chicago In court It
will be the signal for the special session
