(From a fltaft Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept. IB. (Special.) Though
the attorneys for the central creameries In
the hearing before the State Hallway com
. mission In th matter of cream ratea re
fA peatedly said the .would b satisfied with
' s rata baaed on mileage which did not dls
ctlmlnata agalnat r any town. Attorney
Halner la now objecting to the ratea pro
mulgated. Thla morning he made verbal
objection! to the commission, after first
breaking Into print with hla proteata. Aa
a matter of fact, according to one who haa
looked Into the matter, an analyst of the
ratea will ahow that only in very few In
stance have the, ratea been Increased, and
that the objections of the creamery men are
due to the fact that they have no advantage
now over the local creamerlea. Mr. Halner
ta quoted In a local paper with saying that
the new ratea will Increase the coat to the
creamerlea about $22,000 a year. A little fig
uring ahowa how absurd thla etatement la;
Halner clalma the rat pa have been increased
1 cents a can. Dividing the 122.060 by I.
gives 733.31) cana. Multiplied by 30, the av
erage amount of pounds of butter fat to the
can, glvea 21,to9,no0 pounds of butter fat,
which would have j to be shipped at an In
crease of 3 cents 'a'pound to make up that
extra expense claimed by the central cream
erlea. The testimony shows the amount of
pounds of butter at shipped waa only 18.
000,000. . I (
Aa an example of how the rates have
Tibt been Increased by the commission, the
old and new ratea from Holdrege are cited.
Allowing three cans to the 100 pounds, a
creamery at Holdrege would be able to lay
down butter at Omaha for $1.07. Previous
to the new rate It would have cost the
creamery at Holdrege $1.28. The Omaha
creamery, yundat: the new rate, can get
oream Into Omaha from Holdrege for $1.08.
Under the old rate it costs W cents to get
butter fat fronts .Litchfield to Ravenna, a
distance of twenty-six miles; from Ravenna
to Omaha It cost 68 cents, or a total cost of
tl.tl, while It eo"st the Omaha creamery
under tha old rate only $1.02 for butter fat.
Under the new rate Ravenna can get but
ter Into Omaha for 98 cents. Rut the cen
trallsers are n6t discriminated against, be
cause after the butter fat gets to Omaha
the creameries add the water and salt
which makes up easily the difference.
Following are a. few comparisons taken
at 'random of the old and the new rate:

STOCK SHOW DRAWS CROWDS
Display of Thoronghbred A at mala at
Nebraska City Larger than
la Former Years.
NEBRASKA CITT, Neb., Sept. 18. (Spe
cial.) Today was the opening day of the
second annual stock show and sale held In
Nebraska City and It was a success In
every particular and the promoters are
congratulating themselves upon what they
have accomplished. Last year the first
show was held and It proved such a suc
cess that It was decided to cut out all
Fourth of July celebrations and devote ail
their attention to the stock show. . The
first day has proven tho wisdom of their
decision. At the Union stock yards tho
exhibition Is being held and a better place
could not have been selected, as th yards
are all under cover, paved with brick, with
the best of sanitary conditions, so there Is
no danger of rain. The parade thla morn
ing was on tha streets paved with brick
and It was an Immense procession. The
Nebraska City and the Merchants' bands
furnished the music, and the merchants,
the manufacturers and the retail dealers
were represented by floats and the prlte
winning horses and cattle wound up the
procession. There were also a number of
farmers wh had displays. The number of
animate on display is double thoe expected.
Tomorrow la the gala day. In the morning
there will be a parade of decorated Vehicles,
of which some fifty or mora will be In
llhe, and there will be In line all the prlzeN
winning animals. The sales have been
beyond expectation, as the animals have
brought what might be considered ex
orbitant prices. One self-evident faot, and
that la that the counties adjoining Otoe
can produce as good animals aa can be
raised In the United States. Every busi
ness house here has displayed the colors
gold and purple and It has been a general
holiday for this section of the state.

Promising; Condition. ,
KEARNEY, Neb., Sept. . 18 -(Speclal.)-Todoy
registration began at the state
normal school here. Tomorrow Instructors
will meet their classes. Members of the
faculty have all returned from their sum
mer vacations well rested for the work of
th coming year. Students are coming In
on every train and upward of a hundred
are already In the city . finding boarding
places. Th representation promise to be

are already here from McCook 'and west
and from Franklin, Albion and from the
northwest part of the state.
Th first faculty meeting of the year was
held at the home of President Thomas to
night, at which the president gave his
opening address. '
Improvements have been made at the
normal building during tho year, the most
notable of which Is the beautiful tinting
of the walls and pillars of the corridors
and the president's offices. This relieves
the bare appearance of the halls and the
effect Is pleasing to the eye. The floors
have been dressed with oil and wax.. New
metal lockers have been put In. . Almost
every department haa been supplied with
new and more extensive equipment. Ten
new microscopes have been added to the
biological department and $1,600 worth uf
new equipment has been added to the physi
cal science department. Maps, globes,
charts, etc., have been added to the lan
guage and history departments. A good
assortment of supplies have been added to
th model school. A large flag pole has
been ordered for the grounds, which will
be placed at an early date.
A few changes In the teaching arrange
ment are noted. Wayne Chapman, on of
last year's graduates, will assist In the
library.' Miss Lora ' Huntley, also a last
year's graduate, will have an assistant
position In the kindergarten. Bert Danley,
a senior graduate, will give a portion of his
time as assistant In tha physical science
The plumbing haa been changed In the
dormitory and connected with a large tank
which will aupply hot water to the baths
In the building.
As th students com In they are met by
committees from the Young Men's and
Young Women's societies and assisted In
finding . boarding placea In suitable homes,
and th president finds that this relieves
him of much of this work.

waa declared transferred from the special

and there la $1,757.88 In this fund. The
amendment to the charter went Into effect
In April and at that time the comptroller
was supposed to transfer this money to
the public works fund. In place of this
transfer being made the city council
passed a resolution ordering the return
of the money to the unappropriated gen
eral fund. This resolution was vetoed
by the mayor and the veto was sustained.
Th majority of the finance committee
then secured from Assistant City Attor
ney Rlne an opinion to the effect that th
money should not be transferred to- the
public works fund as It waa set aside In
February and not In January. Under this
opinion the comptroller has ' refused to
make the transfer,' but on tho other hand
has not' transferred the money to the
general fund, holding It for special treat
ment at some' future time.
The city engineer has now written to
the city comptroller telling him that be
cause of the condition of his fund this
money Is necessary for the administration
of his office and that unless It Is trans

be compelled to bring suit to have tha
