tion company hearing which was started
yesterday, at which time statements from
the attorney were heard, will be resumed
Tburada. at which time testimony will be
taken. This morning; County Attorney
Tyrrell asked for the continuance so that '
his witness, Mr. E. P. Bcmls of Cleveland,
would have more time In which to look
into the reports and valuation of the com
pany. Mr. Tyrrell contends that the people are
Interested In the Amount of stork and
bonds th company issut, notwithstanding
Mr. Allen argued that the people were in
terested merely . In adequate service at a
Srocks and bonds lssud In excess of the
value of the property. Air. t Tyrrell Insisted
meant Orat -some time and some how the
people would have to pay. If the abnor
mal lsstle Is permitted TioW posterity will
have to pay the bill, and he quoted at
some length ;the statement 'of Commissioner
i Clarke along these lines In his findings In
the rase of the.Clttaena' company, which
ia now a part .of the traction company.
Mr. Clarke argued then as does Mr. Tyrrell
J In dlscusslngvthe question as to whethet
W (ha merger had profited anyone save those
' who sold stock Mr. Tyrrell Insisted that
the two lines covered practically the same
territory and. the citlrens' line was now a
burden to the traction company, Inasmuch
as tha franchise forced the company to run
cars on It which doublet) the expense, and
not havlna sufficient power had resulted In
poor service.. It was his opinion that pos
sibly tha traction company was worth less
now than before the merger.

Governor Holds Back.
"I have not yet decided what to do about
calling the legislature together In special
session," said Governor Shallenberger to
day. "I am still considering the matter."
It Is the belief of many who have talked
to the governor that the -proposed Income
tax amendment will be bitterly fought
whenever it is brought before the legisla
tures and for that reason they are urging
hint to get busy now and carry out the
orders of the late democratic slate conven
tion. While he is saying little, the governor
gives out the impression that, he personally
sees no reason for the extra Session at this

At the regular meeting of the Lincoln

as decided that the best time In the day
to hold the Sunday school was before the

Suit Bejrun in Pierce County Against
Nye-Schneider-Fowler Co. Under
PIERCE, Nb.. Deo. 21 (Special.) A case
of state-wide Interest was filed In the
county court of Pierce county last Monday
by Charles H. Stewart, county attorney of
this county. The suit Is brought against
the Nye-Schneider-Fowler company of Fre
mont, that corporation being charged in
the Information with violating the anti
trust law of this state. It la alleged that
this corporation, which has a branch grain
and lumber office and yards at Hadar, In
this county, has discriminated In prices of
grain at that town when compared with
the prices paid at other places where they
have yards located, when 'the.' quality of
grain Is the same -a jnrrrtiased on the
market at ther plaqrS' afi Cu allowance
has been made for the difference In actual
cost of transportation.
WALTHILL. Neb.. Dec. tL (Special.)
At a special council of Omaha Indians held
Monday the tribe voted unanimously
against the proposed consolidation of the
Omaha and Winnebago agencies and for
the retention of their present agent. A. G.
Pollock. There were more than 100 repre
sentative Indians present. The feeling ex
hibited was noticeable for its Intensity and
bitterness, mingled with sadness at times
on the part of the older Omaha. Har
mony marked the meeting throughout.
The agent. A. Q. Pollock, probably re
ceived the highest honor ever paid an agent
by the Indians when he received a solid
vote of confidence from the tribe, the hope
being expressed that he would remain with
them. Mr. Pollock departed for Washing
The tribe elected four delegates to repre
sent them in Washington, the delegates
being Dr. Susan La Flesche Plootte. Hiram
Chase. Daniel Webster and Simeon Hallo-
well. Dr. Picotte was the first and unani
mous choice of the meeting, but would only
accept the honor with the understanding
that she would pay her own expenses. Tbe
other delegates go at tribal expense.
About a year ago, the. Farmers Elevator
company was organized at Hadar and that
Institution ereoled a fine elevator building

season. A nearly every farmer surround
ing that town took stock In the new con
cern, they naturally delivered their grai.
to the new elevator, and the Institution diu
a thriving business from, the start. It was
then. It Is alleged, that the Nye-Schneider-Fowler
people began to discriminate, and
put up the prices of grain from S to 8
cents per busbel over the regular market
price paid by the dealers In surrounding
towns. The Independent elevator was
forced to meet prices and tip to the present
time a merry war has been going on.
Lately the stockholders became tired of
doing business at a loss and last week de
cided to close down the elevator, or at least
accept grain only when It could be bought
at a fair shipping margin. The Ny-Schneider-Fowler
company, however, still
keep up the high prices, and as a conse
quence the Independents are doing no busi
ness to speak of. ' ' 1 v
In their effort to put the Independents
out of business, it Is said, that th Nye-Schneider-Fowler
folks have boosted the
price of grain so that they have been forced
to pay In many . Instances a higher price
than that paid on the Omaha market. The
state law says that a corporation owning a
line of elevators In this state must pay the
same prices at each elevator on each day,
after making a reasonable allowance for
actual cost of transportation. Upon . con
viction of violating this law the corporation
will lose its charter and cannot transact
business In the state thereafter. This Is
the first case to be tried under this statute
