Belief for Shippers.
Gradually, but surely. tft relations
of shippers and the carriers and the
rights of each are being: erolred under
the rulings of the Interstate Commerce
commission and the courts. One of
the moat perplexing hat been that of
the recourse the shipper had when
rates were found to be unjust. The
elapsed time between the making of a
rate and the determination of Its Just
ness Is necessarily considerable and In
the meantime, If the contention of
the Shipper Is sustained, large sums
hare been extorted from him. The
commission has decided that when a
rate Is determined to be excessive all
amounts orer and above a fair rate
must be refunded whether paid under
protest or not.
This decision does not cure the dis
turbance to business as between points
where there may have been discrim
ination, but It goes a long way toward
meeting the equities of the situation.
States, by legislation, have sought to
go farther by preventing the Ignoring
of commission and statutory rates
pending a court decision on their rea
sonableness, but with no success. The
. . . , . ,v i.
ruling 01 me coranneeiun w... mi
stance rests on a different proposition
of law, recognizing that the shipper
has no choice about accepting the rate
temporarily, and that, therefore, he Is
entitled to be reimbursed when It Is
found excessive, whereas the roads
would have no recourse so far as It
related to goods already carried In
case a rate was subsequently held non
remunerative, It being impracticable
to bring action against a multitude of
Honest differences of opinion will
always exist between shippers and
railroad officials regarding what co-r
stitutes Just and reasonable rates, but
In the past the reasonableness of a
charge has not always been Its meas
ure, but rather the question has been
determined en what the traffic would
bear. The certainty of having to re
fund excess charges will cause railroad
traffic men to be chary of putting this
class of rates into effect. A refund
order on any considerable amount of
traffic after the earnings had been dis
tributed in dividends and otherwise
would be an embarrassing feature,
which the msnagers of roads are not
likely to court by establishing rates
about which there is genuine doubt,
or, as sometimes occurs, absolute cer
tainty of their holdup character.
This decision, while In line with
others previously rendered, goes much
farther than Its predecessors and is
likely to prove a landmark In, railroad
Boosting 'South Dakota.
An unsuccessful effort was made at
the last session of the legislature of
South Dakota to induce that body to
make an appropriation for the purpose
of presenting .the advantages of . the
state to prospective settlers. Organ
ized commercial bodies-of South Da
kota, .however,""' are raising-? a
fund to carry on the work. The build
ing of new railroad lines into unde
veloped portions of the state has
opened up large tracts hitherto given
over to the cattle ranges and even in
the older settled sections there Is
much unimproved land which Is soon
to be made productive.
Omaha as a neighbor and bene
ficiary in large measure of the trade
of that aection has an Interest in the
success of the enterprise and will re
joice at the arrival of the day whea
every tillable tract of South Dakota
land will be under the plow. In the
rush to newer and better advertised
sections the opportunities of Bouth Da
kota have been overlooked In (recent
years by. settlers, but the advertising
given to the opening of Indian lands
has directed attention that way, and
now is an opportune time for our
nelchbors to the north to push the
good work along and settle up the va
Nebraska Mortgage Statistics.
The statistics of - Nebraska niort
gages present some Interesting fea
turea. As compared with the previous
year, so far as the fsrms are con
cerned. the record shows an Increaae
of t4,84S.27 In the reduction of the
mortgage debt and also a decrease of
sbout ft, 000, 000 in the amount filed
As during both of these years the
farmers were prosperous and had no
reason for going in debt to meet ex
penses, the mortgsges, with compara
lively few exceptions, represented the
unpaid portion of the purchase price
ef landa. The decreaae in the amount
of mortgages filed would indicate
therefore, that the high price of Ne
braska lands had in a measure
checked the buying for the sake of in
creasing the holdings of landholders
while the payments demonstrate th
soil has been doing Its part to lift th
debts existing. The figures also indl
cate the Third and 8lxth congressioaal
districts are at present the scenes of
greatest activity in real estate.
City property snows Just the re
verse condition to fsrm realty. All
of the six congressional districts of the
state- show aa excess of mortgages
filed over those released, which is a
reflection, not only of the activity of
urban real estate, but of the greet
amount of building which Is now being
done not only in Omaha, but In every
city and village of the state. From
practically every city comes the report
there has never before been so much
building as in the past year and In
prospect for the present. ' As in. all
comparatively young communities, this
la In a large measure being done on
borrowed cspital, but with the record
of profitable Investment in the past
there la every ground for believing
the Income will extinguish the debt.
Unfortunately the statistics of chat
tel mortgages filed and released do not
In any way reflect the conditions of the
state. It Is and always hss been noto
rious that only a small portion of the
rhattel mortgages filed are ever re
leased when paid, and particularly is
this true of the vest number which In
dividually represent small amounts,
but in the aggregate mount up to an
immense sum. They are given ss a
rule by people lacking in business ex
perience, who, when the debt Is csn
celled, mske no effortto clear the title
to their property by hsving it relessed
of record. Good Judges have often ex
pressed the opinion that the paid sad
nrelessed chattel mortgages of the
state in the aggregate would amount
to a greater sum thsn the entire value
f the personal property of the stste
if all the old records were compiled.
That such a condition of affairs Is a
great drawback to the state is
acknowledged, but neither penalties
nor any other means yet tried have
been able to correct the evil of fall-
res to release chattel mortgages
Helgren for City Comptroller.
The republicans present to the ve.t-
rs of Omaha as their candidate for
the responsible office of city comptrol
ler John 8. Helgren, an expert ' ac
countant of tried experience, fully
qualified to perform the duties.
Mr. Helgren is a steady, reliable
man, who by reason of his previous
employment in the city treasurer's
office and in the office of the county
comptroller, hss had an insight into
the- methods of bookkeeping and ac
counting for public institutions and
the checking of public offices that
would make him perfectly familiar
with what is required of the city comp
troller. Mr. Helgren is also representative
of that class of our citizenship of
Swedish birth or descent who consti
tute an important and substantial ele
ment of the community , and should
ave recognition in the management
f our municipal affairs.
The comptroller's office, In particu
lar, is one In which an occasional new
hand at the helm is most desirable. It
Is time for a change and no mistake
will be made by electing Mr. Helgren
The whole procedure for acquiring
the water works by compulsory pur
chase, as engineered by the marooned
mariner, has been built up on a suc
cession of false expectations.
When the compulsory purchase act
was passed in 1903 the people of
Omaha were led to believe that they
would get title to and possession of
the water plant within six months.
Needless to say that six years have
elapsed, while the Water board, In
stead of fighting to get possession of
the plant, Is now In court trying to
avoid getting possession of It.
When the compulsory purchase act
was passed the pe6ple were led to be
lieve that the water works could be
bought within the $3,000,000, for
which bonds had already been voted,
and that at the worst a few hundred
thousand dollars more might be
needed to take In the outlying areas.
But when the appraisers' award came
In it was for $6,263,295.49.
The people were led to believe that
the courts would reject the appraise
ment without giving it the slightest
consideration, but instead the federal
court of appeals approved it, leaving
our only hope In' the United States su
nreme court, where the case Is now
The people were led to believe that
the water rates could be reduced at
once without waiting to complete the
purchase and the Water bosrd at two
different times issued schedules of re
duced rates, but the courts refused to
uphold them and water consumers are
paying now the same rates they did
The people were led to believe that
the city could evade payment of Its
hydrant rental bills and that we could
have our fire protection without pay
ing for it, but the courts, likewise,
knocked this expectation In the head.
The people were led to believe that
the Water board was In earnest when
It hired experts to make plana for the
construction of a new water plant and
insisted that a better water works than
what we now have could be built for
less than $4,000,000, but nothing
whatever haa come of it.
The people were led to believe that
the Water board would never give
countenance or consent to the $6,263,
295.49 appraisement, denounced as
fraudulent and excessive, until a court
order from the highest Judicial tribu
nal should require it to do so. But
now the Water board is asking the
people to vote a bond Issue of $6,500,
000 to pay the company all the ap
praisers awarded without waiting for
the court decision and knowing that
paying that price will prevent any re
lief to the people in either taxes or

gram this morning a Her nee to employ a
bit of slang, we ahould Inatantly sugseet
tff the Omaha World-Herald the advice:
We gTant that the emotional and hysteri
cal official organ of the brewery, atock
yards and atraet railway syndicatea In
Omaha baa made gallant fight In recent
daya In behalf of the Intereata which It
represents. We grant that the able editor
of the Stockyarda aupplement displayed
marveloua Ingenuity In the work of hiding
from the public eye that clause which the
stock yard and street railway people did
not want the public eye to behold In the
Donahoe bill. We grant that the hysterical
editorials of our metropolitan friend were
enough to scare any ordinary governor
Into a veto of the daylight saloon bill, aa
demanded by the brewery combine. But
granting all thin, we still feet Impelled to
urge our editorial mentor .to "forget It."
These, remarks are made neceseary hy

Stockyards' newepaper upon Governor

ernor had referred allghtlngly to those
people who were transported down to Lin
coln on the brewery combine special train
transported there to make the governor
afraid to sign the daylight saloon bill. All
ha grief now displayed bv the brewery
combine newapaper Is due to the fact that
primary filings had gone by. If the
charter remains unchanged three years
hence candldatea for these positions
will all be nominated at the regular
party primaries and go on the ticket
under the party label as a matter of
course. There Is no more reason for
petition candidates for these offices
this year than there will be three years

They are thronging the walks of the tltlo

Our young girls, fresh, and fair,
With their girlhood bright and their trust
And free from sverv csr.
The tsrnlsh which lies on titles old
They sue in it no snare, .
For they look for love and happiness
When they put on their gold's repair.
Then comes the quick awakening.
In the lands across the sea.
Of the gold that's all and th. heart's that
naught. , ' . .
And the glided misery.
The highborn contempt for' plebtan wives, ;
Till the blood In the veins born fre.
Grows hot with the sordid title sals
And rebels at indignity.
But still they come and th. ranks are
Spite of lesson and woe and ban.
The easer wish for titled name .
They aeem but to Spread and fan:
But some day our gtrle wlH wiser grow,
And American bounds will scan,
For a husband, learning the beat of mat
I not a name but a MAN,

colors, such chc-ice oil paint
ings by famous artists, such
rare artist proof etchings,
as well as multitudes of the
very best in reproduced prints
and such a complete line of, tho
choicest framed pictures.
