freight rats tn Nbr Anka. without first con
sulting th Nehr.uika commission, the
North m-e stern railroad may get itself Into
tioubl and (he case may lead to a con
flict over atate rights.
The Northwestern has filed a new rate
schedule with the railway comramlon
showing a reduction in rates on cement
from Norfolk to other tnwas tn Nebraska,
and with the schedule was filed an order or
decision of the Interstate Commerce com
mission, authorising it to charge these
rates. In the printed decision Commis
sioner Harlan dissents.' holding that the
question is one purely" affecting the state
and, therefor?, the Interstate Commef-e
comm!""Vn has nn jurisdiction over the
matter. The maqrity of the commission
hold that the rMes charged between Nor
folk and the other Nebraska points were
unreasonable and ordered a reduction, and
the railroad complied with the order with
out consulting the local commission.
The cae w brought by the Acme Plas
ter company of Wyoming against - the
Northwestern. This company ships lis
cement from Wyoming to Norfolk over the
Union Pacific and from Norfolk to Ne
braska points on the Northwestern. It was
the rates on tne Northwestern that were
Roowerelt for the Fair.
Secretary Mellor of the State Board of
Agricilture has decided not to try to get
ex-President Roosevelt for the Nebraska
stata fair. He will do nothing that, might
lessen the chances of Omaha securing ta
"Colonel Roosevelt Is going through
Omaha September 2 for Cheyenne," said
Mr. Mellor. "and that would be a week
before the fair, so It would do us no e-od
to secure elm for the fair crowd. If he
stops over In Omaha more people would
get to seo h!ru and It would not Interfere
with the crowds which are coming to the
Not Ip to Legal Department.
Being In Omaha today. Governor Shallen
berger did not get to ask the opinion of
the attorney general on the legality of an
exhibition of the Jeffries-Johnson prize
fight pictures. Mr. Thompson said be had
not looked up the law In the matter, but
If bo had to pass on the question it might
bo probable ha would have to sea the pic
tures firs'- In fact the defeat of Jeffries
wti the first prise fight disappointment the
attorney general has had since the defeat
of John L. Sullivan by CorbetL
Coaaolldatloo of Raral Schools.
"Superintendent Biuhop has Just Issued a
forty-page bulletin on the "Consolidation of
P.ural Schools." Consolidation, i explained
As meaning the uniting of two, three or
xnora small and weak schools Into one that
ball be large enough in point of members
to be Interesting, and strong enough In
tho way of money to afford a comfortable
building, two or more good teachers and
.reasonable facilities for work. It also
means that outlying territory with but few
children shall bo combined wtth a nearby
school that la strong, rather than remain
unorganised Into a separate but weak dis
trict. In Its fullest sense It means the unit
ing of all tho schools of a township Into
pn or two so located as to be most ac-
csib!e. though not necessarily at the
geographic center. '
Amxig tiie adantacs claimed for con-j
1. It la much cheaper for the same grade

scho.-is can he secured, because fewer
teachers being needed a better grade can ,
be secured, a division of labor established '

4. The health of children is better wiien

vision even young and Inexperienced teach
ers covering fewer things will do far bet

7. It increases property values as a
whole fir those who care to sell and
broadens Mfe for those who stay.
J. It makes unnecessary the sending of
young boys and girls away from home for
liifch school privileges on the one band, or
the breaking up of homes oo the other tn
'going to town to educate tha children."
5. It makes unnecessary the present
coat!;' lyfltra of sending the young men
and women at private expense to village

Governor Shallenberger returned from
Omaha this afternoon, but he was too busy
to give out a statement for publication on
the charges against the city offlciaJ that
the liquor laws are being violated in the

would issue a signed statement tomorrow.
