CORPORATION TAX NOT ISSUE
Lincoln's Traction Line' Hew Owners
Not Anxious to Pay.
LIQU0B QUESTION IN CAPITAL
RirUfmfa Begin to Dlaenaa Form
Propoaltton to Submit to Vetera
Next Spring High
(From s Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. Nov. 23.-Speclal.)-Vhlls the
city council and the Lincoln Traction com
pany are still figuring on some kind of a
compromise of the taxes due the city from
the company and also for a profit-sharing
agreement which will be equitable to both
parties, a lot of taxpayers are wondering
why the city officials do not force the
traction company to pay Its past due occu
pation tax before talking of any agree
ment. When Francis W. Brown was mayor the
traction company owed some $54,000 In
taxes. When the case was taken Into court
It was held that liens prior to the tax
liens were on the property to the amount
of $1,100,000. and because of this holding
the mayor and council were forced to do
the btst they could and compromised these
taxes for S cents on the dollar.
Then at once the traction company
opened negotiations with the city to stare
off any ordinance providing six faros for
5 cents. It was first proposed to fevy an
occupation tax based on earnings of $100,000,
to be gradually Increased with the Increase
In the earnings until the maximum of 8 per
cent was reached.
It was finally setCed by the levy of an
occupation tax of 6 per cent and the pas
sage of an ordinance providing six tickets
for 25 cents. The traction company claimed
this was confiscatory, but the citizens' line,
which was then managed by the same per
sons that now control the traction com
pany, W. E. Sharp and others, Insisted that
It was all tight and the ordinance was en
dorsed. Since that ordinance was passed the trac
tion company haa paid nothing of that 5
per cent occupation tax. The occupation
tax was taken Into the courts and was up
held by the highest tribunal In the state,
but that Is all that has come of It. In
view of this fact and of the fact that the
same pernors who advocated It first as
owners of the citizens' line now oppose It
as owners of the merged lines, the tax
payers are getting In a mood to demand
the collection of the back tax and also for
the council to go ahead and levy an occu
pation tax it thinks Is right and not waste
time over talking compromise.
Joint Pasaenarer Ratea Filed.
The State Railway commission has re
ceived a copy of the publication containing
the passenger rates from and to all parts
of the country served by the railroads
doing business In Nebraska. In this pub
lication the I-cent fare law Is recognized.
It Is also set out that should a person buy
a ticket to some point In Iowa by way of
Omaha over the Northwestern, If the fare
la equal to the fare to Omaha on that road,
the purchaser will be required to pay only
the short line rate to Omaha, or the 2-cent
rate over the short line.
Commission Slow to Act.
Because of the failure of the State Rail
way commission to report the name of
Adna Dobson to the attorney general for
Investigation as to hla right to receive a
pass, as reported by the Burlington rail
road, Mr. Dobson haa been placed In a'
very embarrassing position. The report of
the Burlington showed that he had received
a pass to Madrid. Mr. Dobson said he has
never received any pass from the Burling
ton or any other road since the anti-pass
law became effective. The Burlington has
not yt asked permission to correct Its re
port, so It still stands. Had the commission
reported the matter to the attorney gen
eral, Mr. Dobson would have had an oppor
tunity to get an official clean bill.
Slay Submit Liquor Proposition.
While In theory Lincoln is a dry town,
in fact the Excise board knows it la not,
and for that reason some proposition may
come from the Excise board next spring
to change conditions Exciseman Powell
has always favored shutting off everyone
from getting a drink or shut off no one.
That every one is not shut off the Excise
board knows. So an effort will be made
by the three members to get together on
a proposition to submit to the voters. It Is
talked now that the dispensary system
may be submitted. That Is, permit an
agent to have an office here and receive
orders for liquor to be sent to the homes
of those ordering It. The proposition as
now being discussed would not Include a re
tall place for serving drinks, bu simply
permit a person to order liquor and have
It delivered to his house, without having
to go to the station and cart It out him
self. However, the matter has not yet
been discussed by the Excise board In ses
sion, though It has been talked over In
formally. x Free High Srhol Case.
Thomas Wilkinson has asked the su
preme court for a rehearing In the case
wherein the free high school law was de
clared valid. The case came up from
Richardson county In his brief in sup
port of the motion for a rehearing Wil
kinson's lawyer raises a question which
he did not raise In his former brief. He
alleges that the law la Invalid because it
prohibits the right of contract between
parties. The law fixes the rate to be paid
by the school district for the education of
a pupil In a high school in another district
at 75 cents. I'nder the constitution, the
attorney holds, that It Is the right of a
school disrlct to make a bargain with
another school district to which a pupil
Is sent to high school.
