LINCOLN. Feb. 1. ( Special.) The
State Railway commission has not yet
Issued a formal answer to the creamery
men who some time ago asked for a re
hearing on Its recent order In the service
case and a modification of that order.
The creameries desire the commission to
compel the railroads to give receipts for
empty cans returned. When the commis
sion Issued Its orders regarding the rate
for shipping cream nothing wes said
about receipts for cans. Commissioner
Clarke, however, filed an opinion agree
ing to the majority opinion insofar as
It related to rates, but he decided that
the shippers were entitled to receipts for
the empty cans shipped. He held that
the fact that In the past these cans had
been shipped at the risk of the owners
was no reason why the shipments should
not be made In a businesslike way now,
and that the owners of the cans were en
titled to the receipts In order to be able
to piace responsibility when cans were
mlssent or lost. The other two commis
sioners, however, refused to agree to this
opinion and so far they have not changed

the prosecution of merchants at Gordon
