WASHINGTON. April 26 The "mara- j

distinction of foeluK the first to puss Presi
il. lit Taft's railroad legislation Is attract
ing unusual Interest. Both branches of
congress hart hoped to reach votes before
the close of the coming week, but the
ienat seems, to have encountered several
obstacles and from preaeut Indication it
will be ten days probably before the meas

Representative Mann of I.llnois, who has
charge of the bill In the house, succeeded
In netting an order for the consideration
of the bill for amendments under the five

On the senate sldo exasperating delays

Elkins sold yesterday he could have put
through several important provisions dur

the absence of so many of his colleagues.
As a mutter of fact, Mr. Elkins did not

Urn Has th' Votes. '
Senator Elkins reported yesterday he had
sufficient' Vote to defeat the Cummin

"Then let's get a vote," urged Senator
Ahfrlch.' i I ;
"Jt woild not be safe today,", said Mr.
Elkins, "too many aenatora are attending

"That would effect both sides, wouldn't
It?" persisted Mr. Aldrleh.
"I don't knowtabout that." repHed Mr.
Elkins. "1 seems to be our fellow who

Plainly, he did not know. Vice President
Sheiman or Senator Crane could have

"Twenty-two' out of the next tWenty-ntne

"Humph!" Mr. Aldrleh condensed a word

made no attempt to get a vote.

may require a contract of the republicans

Hearings will be. hod on the Moon bill

Of tho Natlonul Press club of Washington.
A notable conference will be held by the
members of the Interstate Commerce com
mission Thursday and Friday. Those days
have been set aside by the commission for
thu consideration of the Paclflo coast
cases which were heard by the commission
on Its long trip last autumn.
All of the cases are of grneral Interest
to the country. They Involve not merely
freight conditions local to the Pacific
Nasi, but questions of rate which affect
(nuts (.ontlnrittal traffic In Its entirety. The
eases Include the rehearing of the Spokane
rate case, the Portland and Seattle back
haul cases, the San Francisco cases, in
volving rates Into Interniountain country,
tnd the notable, Reno rate case.
The last la the most Important proceed
ing now before the commission. Rtno
shippers have urged the commission to
give them the same rates of class and
commodity traffic from Atlantic seaboard
points as now are given to Pacific coast
It was developed In the hearing of the
case that the rate from Atlantic ports
to Sacrameniui. and other Pacific coast
terminals u 13 on first-class freight and
proportionately less on other classes and
Mattes of I.ouar Haul.
The rate to Ueuo from the same points of
origin la the sum of (he Pacific coast
terminal rate plus the local rate from Sac
ramento to Reno. The distance-, from
Sacramento to Iteno Is under 150 mile and
the bark haul rate Is II. a (n first-class
freight. This makes the rate from Atlantic
seaboard points to Reno ft S. although the
freight Is unloaded at Keno on the west
The defense of the railroad is that Sac
ramento Is a water comiietltlve point, a
boat line being operated between San Fran
cisco -and Sacramento. They hold, there-fort,-
-that, although Sacramento Is a
longer hauliey are obliged to make a
lower rate on account of the water competition.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, April 24, (Special.) This
beautiful little city Is Just now torn with
dissension and there la woe on every
hand over the request of S. H. Burnham,
one of Lincoln's prominent bankers, for
permission to construct a sign over the
sidewalk to designate th, temporary loca
tion of, his bank pe"J-. tha. construction
of tt new bank" buioJtig to -cost $300,000.
Tha city . oouncll may take some action
on the matter at its meeting Monday, tin
lent it turn the request over to" the City
Improvement society, which' is composed
of some of the beet known women of the
city . and which usually passe upon such
request for the city authorities.
It has been the custom here for a long
time in some quartera to criticise se
verely any obstruction between the side
waikB and the broad, blue sky or the
giving of authority to construct signs
along the sidewalks. In fact, the feeling
against these obstructions ha reached
such a point In some quarter that one of
the newspapers editorially voiced an ob-'
Jectlon to "skyscrapers" because they dis
figured the landscape.
Other Instance Cited..
So there are few obstructions between
the sidewalks and the broad, blue sky or
on the sidewalks, barring, of' course, the
boxes of fruits set out by the fruit deal
ers, the grocers wares, the signs designat
ing the location of the theaters, the baj
conl.s around the Lincoln and Linden ho
tels, together with the large electric signs
attached thereto, case in which photo
graphs are exhibited, a few buildings or
two which set In the street, the Young
Men' Christian association having occu

constructing a new building.
When Mr. Burr.ham made his request
there was a digging Into records and
It was found there Is an or Jknce against
such signs. The worthy mayor promptly
went on record in opposition to the re
quest. He and the worthy council standi
between the "money power" and the peo

and some money there Is a division of sen

When Mr. Burnham made his -request
Mr. Oregory of another bank said publicly

END OF WORLD NOT IN SIGHT
So Says Father W. F. Rigge, Astron
omer of Creighton University.
TALL OF COMET NOT DANGEROUS
Present Visit Twenty-Seventh Time
the Comet Ha Passed the Earth
First Time for Earth Going;
Throua-h the Tall.
The world will not come to an end on
May 19 as far as Halley's comet is con
cerned, la an assertion made by Father
Hlgge. at the meeting of the Phlloaophk-a!
society In Barlght'B hall Sunday afternoon.
Father Rlgge gave a number of reasons
why the passing of the earth through the
tall of the comet would have no particular
effect, fIef . of which, was the statement
that the gaaea -of which the' tail hv sup
posed to be composed are so thin that
stars can be seen through the vapor for
hundred of thousand of miles with tele
scopes. He also brought out the fact that
tho smelter located In Omaha sent out
gases 100 times more dense and poisonous
than those composing the tall of the sky
wanderer. The fact that the head of the
comet at the time the earth passes through
the tall Is 12,000,000 miles away Is- another
fact Indicating that the gases will not be
of pronounced density.
Father Rlgge explained to a large gath
ering the astronomical data that has been
gathered about the comet. He said accord
ing to the records this Is the twenty
seventh time It has passed the earth and
the first time the earth passes through the
tail. He also denied that this comet waa
the star of Bethlehem.
The comet will pass before the sun May
19 at 9 :1S at night. It will not be visible
here, but will be In the Pacific ocean.
After the comet has passed the sun, It
will be seen more clearly In Omaha and
those who look for It on May 20 and 21
should be rewarded for their efforts.
Father Rlgge said It Is probable that at
tie time the comet passes the sun the sky
in this section may be faintly lighted.
Confirm Senter'a Report.
Last evening Father Rlgge said a let
ter from a former student of his now at
St. Louis university has convinced him
he saw the comet both on Wednesday
and Saturday mornings, but did not at
the time recognize It, so faint was the
speck of light. Ho did not see the tall,
or any indication of It, and thus was nils
led Into thinking he saw only a star.
"I have Ao doubt Prof. Senter saw the
comet," said Father Rlgge, "also that the
St. LouIh observers saw It. The St. Louis
data sent to me convinces me that I also
saw It. The high school Is much higher
than Creighton observatory, of course, and
Just at present my apparatus is not In
the best working condition, but it will
