LINCOLN, Jan. I ?peclal Telegram.)
A vital issue in the fight the state Is mak
ing against the express companies to se
cure a reduction of rates is the huge salary
list the companies carry and the heavy
charges they pay the railroad companlea
for transportation. Attorney General W.
T. Thompson today received a memoran
dum ruling from Judge Munger of the
federal court to this effect. A motion of
the Adams Express company in the suit
brought to prevent the railroad commii
slon from enforcing the SlWey act, bring
ing about a 25 per cent reduction In ex
press rates, was overruled. The motion
was to eliminate the mater of ealarlee and
high charges from the case.
In hla answer to the petition the attorney
general said the Adam! company paid ex
cessive sums In salaries to official! and
paid In tramportation charge! for goods
carried to railroads what practically j
amounted to 50 per cent of the sum, re-
celved from lta own customers. He was
striking at the system which would r'rmlt
the railroads, through control of express
companies, receiving dividends on two
classes of stock for prictlcally one aervice.
Judge Munger holds the matter la ex
tremely pertinent and he refuse! to Itrlke
it out of the pleadings. The attorney gen
eral filed a demurrer to the company's
petition, but the court decline! to rule on
thii now, as he say! a case is pending In
the United States supreme court in which
a decision may be exrected soon which will
decide questions practically the same as
are raised through the demurrer.
The ruling of tha court Is favorable to
the stats contentions and was extremely
gratifying to the legal department.
Followh-g the ruling of Federal Judge
W. H. Munger at Omaha. In which he
dismissed the exceptions of express com
panies to tho suit begun by the state,
papers were prepared In the attorney gen
eral's office tday. and tomorrow a suit
will be filed In the district court of this
county against the Adams. American and
United States Express companies to com
pel them to make a report on salaries paid
and other data. The action will eek both
to enforce compliance with the order and
to collect penalties for violations.

from Attorney Frank Ransom of the Union j
Stock Tards company that the 50-cent

The commission today was informed the

Pecaliar Laundry Bill.
Deputy Auditor Cook thought the limit
had been reached when he received a
voucher from the state university for a
hill for $25 for gas for one month, when
the institution has a lighting plant, but
when he received the laundry bill for the
month of November he was floored. One
bill from the Evana Laundry company
against the home economics department
was for 11.40. The items enumerated in
the bill were as follow! : Spreads, sheets,
slips, towels, bath towels, roller towels,
tablecloth, rags, napkins. side towels,
aprons, !hirtwaisti. corset coven, night
drehses, hose, saques. sleeves, skirts, dress.
There were six corset covers, seven shirt
waist!, five night dresses, three skirts, one
dress, thirteen sleeve!. This bill waa for
a period from October 31 to November ST.
A second bill on the Incidental fund ac
companylng the same voucher waa for
Kl.'S) for the month of November. This
bill was for towels only. Of the towels
there were 5..HS bath towels. 9"2 roller
oi. . n.i ?i hand towels. The deputy
or has not v t figured out why thel
state should pay for the laundering of
corset covers and hose and night dresses,
though he can see why the state might
be responsible for the balance of the bill.
Incidentally, though the Itemized bill aa
shown above Is filed with the voucher. C.
J. Ernst, president of the Board of Regent!,
and J. S. Dales, secretary, sertlfy on the
certificate that the bill ia for "washing"
towels and table linen."

Judge Munger! opinion state! In effeot
that the bill was filed in thia case to enjoin,
the State Railway commission and Attorney
General Thompson from enforcing the a at
of the legislature of Nebraska, April 5. 1M,
known as Senate File 355, requiring all 1 1
press companies within the state to f;la
certain schedule! of ratea charged by them
for the transportation of merchandi
within the state and prohibiting them front
charging to exceed 75 per cent of their
charges in force on January 1, 1007. until
after the 8tate Railway commission should
provide for a greater rate, and providing
certain penalties for the violation of the
act. upon the ground that the enforcement
of the law would deprive the express com
panies of their property without due proceaa
of law. In that it would require them to
do business at a loss.
To this bill the members of the Board of
State Railway Commissioners have filed
their answer, and to this answer the Adams
Express company has filed certain excep
tions. The first, second and third exceptions
are baaed on the ground that certain alle
gations in the bill are not sufficiently an
swered. To these three exception!, Judge
Munger says:
"We do not regard them as such material
allegations in the bill as to require specific
answers thereto, respondents are not re
quired to specifically answer, and we re
gard these respective allegations aa imma
terial. The fourth exception ia to certain
averments in the answer to the effect that
the capital and funds necessarily invested
and employed by .the express companies In
conducting their business within the itate
are small and of nominal amount, and that
it payi to the railroad companlea for the
purpose of conducting Its business ovar
their lines, excessive compensation, and ex
cessive compensation to certain of Its agents
gnd servants. This is excepted to as not
being an answer to any specific averment
of the bill, and as Insufficient, Irrelevant
and impertinent. We think It pertinent to
the allegations of the bill to ahow that the
complainant ! expenses In conducting Its
business within the state are extravagant
and unnecessary, if such be the fact."

his losing control of tha steering gear of
