LINCOLN. Jan. 28. (Special. )-Oovernor
Shallenbergor today slpned a supplemental
contract for the use of the prison labor by
Max Cohen, which provides that the con
tractor shall furnish the Inmates of all
state Institutions shirts and clothing at the
cost of 'the material.' It Is also provldod
ftl the supplemental contract that all Hoods
manufactured In the state prison shall he
Shipped out of the state.
. There Is nothing In the supplemental con
tract, however, which provides that the
gcods may not be shipped rack Into the
Ihe supplemental contract wrs signed by
Governor Shallenbersrer and Warden Smith
of tho stnte penitentiary, representing the
state, and Max Cohen, representing ,the
contractors.' Members of the Hoard of
Public panels and Building are out of the
city, so It will be presented to them for
their signatures later.
.fnclr-r this supplemental contract It will
ni longer be necessary for the Board of
Illii chase and Supplies to advertise for bids
for shirts and trousers for the state wards,
but they may be manufactured by' prison
labor at the cost of tho material. Under
the governor's supplemental contract It will
be possible to clothe the members of the
noldlcrs' homes and other wards of the
state with convict made clothing regardless
of the feelings of those who have to wear
them. The contract simply cuts out firms
employing free labor which manufacture
clothing usually bought by the state for Its
wards. How much money this will save
the taxpayers has not yet been figured.

' "Why, we are Just laughing at the In
surgent meeting held In Lincoln," said
Marshall Harrison of Otoe county, member
sixth 1907 legislature.1 "We republicans of
Otoe county do not belong to that brand
of insurgents, and we are not liable to get
excited over that meeting. In fact, some of
the faces in the movement are too familiar
Mr. Harrison said there was a big demand
for Will Hayward to run for congress In
the First district, but he was not sure
that. ihe state chairman could be Induced
to enter the race. Mr. Hayward was here
today on legal business and received sev
eral requests that he run.

GETS VALUABLE ESTATE
IN RUSSIA, LOSES HEALTH
Peter Itelmrr Returns to Make Home,
1 . bat is (Mad to Come Hack
YORK, Neb., Jan. 28.-Speclal.)-Peter
Relmer, a resident of this city, has just
returned from Russia, where he went to
help settle a largo estate left him and his
brothers In Russia. As soon as business
6f the estate was settled Mr. Relmer left
Russia for the United States. . It Is only a
few years ago since Mr. Relmer bade his
friends good-bye, telling; them that he was
homesick for his native country -and that
with the amount of money made from the
rich and productive farming land In York
county he could live better and cheaper.
After suffering everything but death by
reason of lawless bands of robbers and
murderers, who robbed stores, dwellings
and shot people down, narrowly escaping
death, he managed to so settle his affairs
that he could return to the United States,
and was a most thankful person when he
arrived In York, saying that under no
circumstances would he return to Russia to
make It his home and that no place looked
better to him than York and York county.
The strain and worry, and fear both of loss
of life and property has left Mr. Relmer In
poor health, and he has been at a sani
tarium In Lincoln, Neb., to take treatment.

LINCOLN, Jan. 2S. (Special.) In the
case wherein the Omaha Grain exchange
complained to the Railway commission
against discrimination on the part of the
Burlington and Union. Paclfln In favor of
Kansas City in the matter of freight rates
testimony was taken before the commission
, Witnesses of the grain exchange com
plained of the discrimination rather than
of the high rates. They said they did not
object If the rates were high provided each
community was treated alike.
These witnesses testified that practically
all of the grain of the southeast part of
the state went to Kansas City because
of the higher freight rates to Omaha. Sev
eral of the Omaha dealers said they had
quit bidding on grain in this section of
the state because of the advantage the
Kansas City dealers were enjoyatig.
The rates to Kansas City were reduced
by the railroads last August and as a
reason the freight agents of two roads tes
tified that the Kansas legislature enacted
a law which forced a reduction In rates In
that state. Because the roads dip down
Into Kansas it was necessary to save the
elevator men who had elevators along
the 'railroads to reduce the rates rather
than to ship under the Interstate rates.
These reductions, they Insisted, had not
been voluntary, but had been forced and
for that reason they had made no reduc
tion In rates to Omaha.
It was brought out at the hearing, how
ever, that whaii the Aldrlch freight rate
law was enacted the roads reduced the
rates to Kansas City. This was done,
Charles Lane of the Union Pacific said,
not because the roads desired to reduce
rates to Kansas City, but because the St.
Joseph & Grand Island railroad made the
reduction, and the other roads had to fol
low suit. Witnesses for the Grain ex
change showed that even when the station
was closer to, Omaha than Kansas City
the rate to Kansas City was lower than to
Mr. Spens of the Burlington Introduced
a statement showing a comparison of ship
ments of grain to Omaha and to Kansas
City for a period of five years from seven
stations where the rate was higher to Kan
sas City than to Omaha; three stations
where the rate was ihe same, and one
where the Omaha rate was the higher.
The shipments showed Omaha secured only
10 per cent of the business.
For the Grain exchange the following
witnesses testified: C. IX Sturdevant, John
R. Morris. W. J. Hynes and John A. Kuhn.
Charles Lane, of the Union Pacific and C.
E. Spens of the Burlington, testified for
the roads. E. J. McVann for the Grain
exchange and James E. Kelby for the
Burlington conduoted the cases. Briefs
will be Tiled.
