Proves to Be Good
User of Mileage
Ai Traveler at Expense of State
Present Executive Bids Pair to
Take the Palm.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Dec. 1 (Special.) Governor
Shallenherger Is still going some. Today the
secretary of state passed favorably on
another bill for i'sO for mileage books on
the Burlington. This makes a total of $7S0
that has been spent for the executive de
partment for mileage books since January
21. To this there should be added $185, the
governor's expenses to the Seattle exposi
tion, to complete his travel expenses for
lleduclng the $7S0 to miles of travel. W.
Governor would have to travel 89,000 miles
to use up that much money. Reducing
still further, It has been Just 312 days since
the governor made his first purchase of a
mileage book. To use up all that he has
paid for he would have had to travel at
the rate of 125 miles a day for every day
since January 21. For either the senate or
the governorship that would be going some.
Governor Sheldon, who was defeated for
re-eleatlon, spent JS4S.65 for travel "ex

Polk County's Republican Senator
Thinks Democrats Acted in
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Dec. 2. (Special.) Senator
King of Polk county was here on legal
business this morning and stopped long
enough to say he was surprised that the
word "or" had been changed to "and" In
the anti-pass law.
"I am satisfied that amendment was
never printed," said Senator King. "I
watched that bill particularly anij was
assured by Senator Ollls of Valley jfiat the
only change contemplated was to permit
a railroad company to give a pass to the
widow or orphans of railroad employes who
died in the service. In the printed bill the
word "or" was there. Of course I never
went to the engrossed bill to see If It had
been changed In that.
"1 should think Mr. Taylor of York
county, whom the papers said had Intro
duced one of the amendments to the bill
changing "or" to "and," should be com
municated with so he could have a chance
to say something."
When the governorship was mentioned to
him, Senator King said: I
"I am not a candidate for governor and
do not intend to be. I enjoy the work as a
member of the legislature, but I am not
seeking 'he nomination for governor. It la
pleasing to me for my friends even to think
I have the nUllty to fill that high office.
but I am not and will not be a candidate."

BEATRICK, Neb., Dec. 2. (Special.)
The case of Attorney E. O. Kretslnger
against S. D. KUlen, wherein the defendant
appealed the claim of Mr. Kretslnger for
$S18, allowed by the county board as fee
In the Sparks case, was won by the plain
tiff, the Jury bringing In a verdict for the
full amount with Interest from January
About three years ago Mr. Kretslnger
was engaged by the county board to as
alst S. D. KUlen In the prosecution of J.
H. Sparks, the bridge contractor. After
the case was disposed of Judges Pember
ton and Raper awarded him as his fee the
sum of $S16. The claim was allowed by the
county board, but Mr. KUlen appealed from
their action, claiming that Mr. Kretslnper
did not earn tne fee allowed, for the rea
son that he persisted In prosecuting the
case after KUlen had cited authorities,
showing that there was no chance for the
county to win the oase. This Mr. Kret
slnger strenuously denied, alleging that at
no time during the suit, which was heard
In federal court, did Mr. KUlen show a dis
position to cease prosecution and make a
settlement with Sparks. About $9,000 was
involved In the suit.

Historical Society Bests Money.
Notwithstanding the State Historical so
clety gets an appropriation of $15,000 blen
nially. It has its solicitors out now begging
money from the people. One solicitor, was
at the state house this morning begging
money with which to print some report
the society Is to make and for which the
solicitor said there was no money available
to pay the bill. As an Inducement to get
funds, the solicitor said the same would not
be collected before the middle of January.
It Is presumed the solicitor draws a salary
from the state during the time she la at

Rock Island Loses Money.
The testimony given by the witnesses of
the Rock Island railroad, which Is trying
to make the court believe the 2-cent fare
law and the reduced freight rale law are
uniust. Is peculiar If nothing else. Some
weeks ago, when the attorney general exam
ined the witnesses of this company, it was
brought out that for six months of the
financial year the net earnings of the roaa
for purely Nebraska business was $1,431.13.
A few days ago ths testimony Introduced
by this same road shows that the earnings
for ths year. Including that first six
months, was only $1,011.67, showing that
evidently the road must have lost money
during the .last six months of its business
In this state. These figures referred only
to the freight business and did not Include
the passenger earnings. '

Congressman from Fourth Dlstrtet
Will Leave for Washlasrtoa
FAIRBURT, Neb., Dec. 1. (Special.)
Congressman E. H. Hlnshaw, who will
leave tonight with Mrs. Hlnshaw for Wash
ington to be present at the opening of
congress. Is very decided In his opinion
that Cannon can never be elected speaker
of ths house agal.
"The present republican majority Is not
large," said the congressman, "and it Is
not likely that it will be much larger at
the next session. tA present there are
about fifty republicans who can ' be de
pended upon to vote and work against the
re-election of the speaker, and this num
ber will be augmented by a number who
have heretofore been allied with the ma
jority and 'who are today counted as
friendly to the speaker, so that I am con
fident the so-called Insurgents will have
power enough to frustrate any effort that
may beTnade to re-elect the speaker.
'My opinion Is based on Interviews whloh
I have had with congressmen from all
parts of the country within the last
month. During my trip with the presiden
tial party down the Mississippi river re
cently, a representative from Kansas said
to me that he was going to find out on
that trip whether Cannon would be a can
didate for the speakership again, and that
if he Intends to be, he (the Kansas con
gressman) wlU not ask his people for a re
election, because, he said, no man could
be elected in his district unless he pledges
himself to vote against Cannon, and the
speaker bad faVored him so many times
that he would rather retire to private Ufa
than to make such a pledge."
