LINCOUff. Neb.. June r. 8pec1al Tele
gram) White attorney general haa not yet
gtren an opinion to the state board re
garding the legality of a division of the
franchise and rolling- stock of rallroada.
according to the mile of the various
Hnee, It Issafe to say he will approve the
proposed, plan, basing hla orlnion on the
decision of the supreme court which held
legal thfe plan of distributing the physical
value over the lines Instead of accord
ing to the mileage of the system.
Secretary of State Junkln, acting In ac
cordance with hla resolution haa figured
out the valuee In some of the towns and
cltlea on the main line of the Union Pacific.
While the ftgurea of the secretary may not
be taken by the board It la hla belief they
are approximately correct und will stand.
He has figured the franchise and rolling
stock of the Union Pacific to be worth
V3.cno a mile. He secured this valuation
by deducting the physical value of tin
main line as found by the assessors from
the valuation of thla line by the state
board. This I6S.00O Is to be apportioned
to the several towns according to mileage.
On this basis Omaha will receive an
increase In- actual value of the Union
Pacific of ' W.700,000: South Omaha, $308.
OflOi Paplllion. $13,000; Elkhorn. I3S.000;

ney. $30,000; Lodge Pole will lose, $21,000;
Chappell will lose, fl.SOO; Overton will lose,
$66,000; Gothenburg will lose, $39,000. The
loss or gain to these towns In the assessed
value Is one fifth of the figures mentioned
or the actual value.
