From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. May l.-lBpeclal.)-lf you
weie governor of the state and had been
down in the south enjoying life to the
fullest and come hom to be greeted by
the announcement of the bus of the demo
cratic party that you must call an extra
session of the legislature, and you did
not ant to call that extra session and
knew If oil did call It'll would probably
cause your defeat for a scond term and
knew that If you did not call It. your
action would probably Cause your defeat for
a record nomination, would It make :.u
Thai Is what confronts Governor Shallcn
bcrger. If you were the democratic party and
you had an U!ea that everything was com
1 11 k your way and you were Just leaving
the time of your life, anticipating a great
victory In November and your bona were
to come home from houth America and
start a tow that Insured defeat at the
polls, that eaustd your brethern to no
longer dwell together In peace and har
mony and that Just almply knocked every
thing end ways, weuld it fret you. Just
That la what the demoerata faces.
And there la no doubt In the mind of
democrats, who have been to the state
house since the promulgation of the latest
Bryan Puramount Issue, that the division
In the ranks of the party la now more
serloua thun it lias ever been before, in
cluding evtn the days of the free silver
fight over the state organization.
Elimination of Bryan.
' There are those here who believe It means
the elimination of Bryan as a boss If he
Is defeated, or It means the deftction from
the party of some of Ita ablest Workers if
he is successful . In either case ll means
that a r?al organized and determined effort
will be made to prove to Mr. Bryan thai
the democratic party in Nebraska Is bigger
that he Is. And Mr. Bryan and his friends
will fight Just as hard to prdvS) the he? le
bigger than the party.
All of which makes It very uncomfort
able for Governor Shallenberger and other
democratic candidates for office. As pub
lished In The Bee several weeks ago, every
democratic candidate in Nebraska must
conform to the Bryan program or fight
him. This Includes Governor thllenberger.
The first sera poccurs over Mr. Bryan's
attempt to persuade or force three-fifths
of the members of the legislature to pledge
themselves In writing that they will vote
for the submission of the Initiative and
referendum. It is necessary for Mr. Bryan
to get the promises In writing, for Gov
ernor Shallenberger will take no verbal
pledges that's how much he trusts his
democratic legislators . The governor Im
posed this condition before he will issue
If Mr. Bryan Is pliable to secure the
necessary three-fifths, he will begin nts
f'ght to secure delegates to the democratic
state convention who are tor county option
and whr will agree to Insert that punk In
the democratic state platform. That and
the Initiative and referendum also.
The members of the house passed the
Initiative and referendum last winr r and
they will naturally do the same thing
again if given an opportunity. The senate
killed the bill, ao Mr. Bryan's fight will be
centered on the seriate. The bill lacked
five votes of going through the upper
house, and If Mr. Bryan geta those five
voles from among the democrats he must
secure them In this bunch, all of whom
voted contrary to hla orders: Bartos of
Saline, Busse of Webster, Buck of Otoe,
Fuller ot Sejvard, Howell, Ransom and
Tanner of Douglas, Klein ot Gage and
Volpp of Dodge. '' ' ,
Leader Beaten at Time.
When the bill was pending Mr. Bryan
hi ought to bear every bit of pressure he
could command to force them to obey his
will, but In vain. To some of them he
wrote letters expressing his personal views
of the reasons they opposed the bill. But
the faithful nine stood pat. Whether any
of the nine have deserted Is not known by
the public, but the odds are even that they
have grown to the spot and Mr. Bryan
will be unable to uproot them. So It Is
'!-.; belief of those who watched .that fight
last winter that Insofar as those nine dem
ocrats are concerned, Mr Bryan has met
his Waterloo. In other words, the "Big
Nine" will stand pat. '
All of which fight Is going to affect
Governor Shallenberger. . His friends know
that he will not endorse county option,
unless the state convention first Includes
it in the platform. Ho he will be no help
to the presidential candidate in the. pre
liminary fight. And he may ba entirely
obliterated by the Bryan Influence. But
should Mr. Bryan ba successful In hla first
fight, then all the responsibility of the ex-
tra session will have to be borne by the!
governor, and his friends realise an extra
session is not good campaign material for
the man who calls It. Ills friends insist
that to call the extra session will violate
the state constitution because no great
danger threatens the state and no great
emergency exists which hecessltatea it.
Some people are saying Mr. Bryan Is de
manding this extra session simply to se
cure revenge upon a few democrats who
dared go against hi will last winter and
that the governor should not spend thous
ands of dollars ot the people s money
merely to gratify the whim of the peerless
leader. He had his chance, and he waa de
feated by hla own democratic legislature,
they say, and for him to force the Issue
now signifies that he will either rule or
leave his claw marks all up and down the
sides of the party.

public as against the railroads. The at
torneys geenral of the vat lous states named
feel It is Incumbent upon them to render
to Oklahoma all the aaslstan-e within their
power In the cases now before the circuit
court of appeals. Inasmuch as an adverse
opinion rendered by this court In so im
portant a case would have much Influence
on the decisions, that might hy the htuhor
courts be rendered in their own behalf
when their own cases now pending wre
made ready for trial.
Apportionment of K.xpeuses.
"The most flagrant error Into which the
court In the above cited decision has fallen
lies In the adoption of the revenue theory ,
for the apportlnnment of expenses as be
tween the various classes of business, and
which, because It is 'much to their advant
age, the railroads have so strenuously and
vigorously defended. In proposing this
method all factors of Inequality In rales
are ahaolutely leveled and how the court
coud be misled into overlooking so Import
ant a factor as differences In rates is in
conceivable. "As an Illustration of the harm It works
a short' example Is cited: Assuming that a
railroad transacts a business over a cer
tain piece of Us roadway, wjthln a certain
sieclfied time. In passenger traffic, and
received a grosa revenue therefor on a basis
of 2-cent fare of $100,000, of which $fi.O0O is
produced by the transaction of Interstate
business and $10,000 by the transactionvof
Intrastate business; that the expenses for
carrying on all the business are $75,000; now,
by the theory adopted and Ingested upon by
the railroads, regardless of the cost of serv
ice, they ay the expenses chargeable to
each class of business are In proportion to
the revenue produced by each; so that,
there would he charged, under that theory,
$30,000 as expenses against the Intrastate
business and $45,000 as against the Interstate
Ksc-Hplna- Expense Share.
"Now, If under the same conjitlons of
traffic In every particular, except only that
tho intrastate passenger rates are $ cents
per mile Instead of 2 cents, the revenue Is
raised to $110,000 Intrastate, passenger rates
remaining 2 cents per mile on Interstate, a
division of the expenses under this same
theory. Insisted upon by the railroads,
would produce an expense against It of
$37,W0. So' that .under the last named con
ditions, the Interstate traffics escapes the
peyment of $7,500 of the expenses which,
under the first example, were acknowl
edged by the railroad that It had truly sus
tained and while the Intrastate business has
by reason of the change In rate's actually
earned $20,000 more, but Is now charged with
$37,500 expenses nd ahows only an ad
ditional net revenue of $12.M)0. So that, by
the use of this method, the net earnings of
the Intrastate busi less have been robbed
for the benefit of the Interstate business.
There are many other reasons why this
mode of apportioning expenses Is wrong,
and among others particularly In the pas
senger traffic Is the fact that most of the
local trains are run with the poorer and
more nearly obsolete equipment, crowded
with' passengers whereas, most ot the In
terstate traffic l.i favored by having placed
at Its disposal elegantly equipped modern
trains, weighing from two to five times
as much per train and consequently wear-
In the track and equipment In that ratio,
vith vne-half or less the number of pas
er.gers to the car. This would Indicate
that, as a matter of fact. If the proper"
disclosure of the actual conditions were
truly set forth the Intra-state business Is
being done by a smaller expense than
"While the conditions In the cases, so
far as the testimony has been taken In

Recently the Chicago, Milwaukee A St.

rate from Sioux City to Chicago to 23 H

The offer of ethe suggestion by Judge
Latshaw came after a lotig debate In the
court room yesterday over whether testi
mony regarding the refusal of Dr. Ludwig
Hekloen to relinquish unexamined sections
of the viscera, to chemists employed by the
delense should be admitted. This demand
preceded an indictment In the rase and
while the organs, were In Chicago. Judge
Latshaw will also report Monday on

Regarding - Reports.
The wlir.es could not recall having re
ceived a report from Dr. Haines informing
him there w-as no poison in the capsules.
"Didn't you write to your employes not
to permit Dr.' Hyde to have any part of
the viscera of Chrisman Swope?'' queried
"I probably did." answered the scientist.
An effort was then made to prove that the
representatives of Dr. Hyde had called
dpon the chemist March 1 and aaked for
portions of the vlsceras of tlie two Swopes
and were refused. The state objected to
this matter being delved Into, saying the
demand was not made In good faith. The
state said the demand should have been
made on the court for an order for tie
scientist to produce the viscera, If It was
really wanted. '
This -was replied to by the defense by
snylng that at the time the demand was
made, the court here had no power over
the organs, as' they were in Chicago and
i also that no Indictment had been returned.
The court said It was tinuble to decid'
Jut.t what power It had In the matter and
would adjourn court until Monday In order
to give it plenty of time i investigate
the law. ,
Judge Latshaw suggested it would clear
matters greatly for him to appoint sev
eral disinterested and eminent scientists
to examine the remaining undisturbed
parts of the vlseceras and make a report
to the court on their findings. If the law
gave him the right, and arrangements
could be made of either by the stale or
the defendant to;meet the expense and the
attorneys fe'ere 'willing, he 'would talie
such actum, lie said. An attempt will be
made to reach some decision on the pro

counsel refuted to make any statement
