he had his expenses paid while at the hotel
In Alliance an dthat his filing fee had also

' Other wltneasea who had taken claims

Mr. Elred had hauled the lumber to the
various spots on the claims where the
shacks were ta be built and had told the
men they might go to the spot, find the
lumber and build their shacks.
W. Fa Clark testified as to how he came
to conceive the Idea of taking a homestead.
He Is. an old soldier as are moat of those
who took the claims on Mr. Klred's ranch
In Deuel county. He said that In 1904 he

with whom he was acquainted. In the
buggy with Corbin was Mr. Klred.-. Mr.
Oark had never seen Elred before. Mr.'
Corbin called Clark to the buggy and in
troduced him to Mr. Elred.
According to Clark's testimony, Elred
then asked Clark If he waa an old soldier.
Ha replied that he was. He says Mr. Elred
the naaked him If ha had ever thought
of taking up a bomsstead. He said he had
several times thought of It. but had never
takes the matter up seriously. Mr. Elred
than told him of the possibilities of taking
up a homestead In his neighborhood, and
told hurt If he would come out to take ths

asked Mr. Elred how be could do this, and

Some of the witnesses testified that they

LINCOLN. May 10 (Special.) The per
car mile basis for setting aside funds to
the credit of maintenance and depreciation
accounts may be adopted by tle State Rail
way commission, following a conference
held here today between the commission
and officials of the street railway com
panies of the state. The commlaalon has
been requiring the setting aalde of 6 per
cent of the value of physical property. Be
sides officials of the Omaha and Lincoln
losal traction companies there were present
Rrf A. Luessler of the Omaha A Council
Bluffs Street Railway company, W. O.
Nicholson, auditor of the same company;
H. S. Norton of the Omaha. Lincoln A
Beatrice tnterurhan line.
While rates are said to have no bearing
whatever on the proper amount to set
aalde for depreciation, tha depreciation ac
count may have some bearing on rates to
bo established by the commission. The
Lincoln Traction company now has before
the commission an application to increase
rates and the company, through Secretary
Smith, alleges that the company has not
been allowed enough for depreciation.
Mr. Lueaaler first argued In favor of
making gross receipts the basis of de
preciation on the ground that earnings re
flect the use of cars and tracks and that
use is the principal but not the only fac
tor In depreciation. Later he heartily ap
proved the suggestion that car mllee be
made the basis, this coming nearer to
what he thought was the best test. Sec
retary Smith of the Lincoln Traction com
pany opposed gross receipts as a basis and
approved the proopsed car mile basis. He
opposed gross receipts as a basis because,
he said, Lincoln, gave more service ac
cording to population than the Omaha
company gives, yet when the Lincoln com
pany proposes to take off cars it Is not
permitted to do so. He said no city In
the United States of the size of Lincoln
gives as much service. He asserted that
Lincoln has & metropolitan street car serv
ice In a town of 40,000.
Mr. Smith. Insisted on the commission es
tablishing a rule that would apply to all
street car companies In the state. The
street car companies In the state. The
Omaha man opposed this and said condi
tions were different In every city and that
the commission should Investigate and
make a rule for each company.
Mr. Smith and the Omaha man Indulged
In some discussion In regard to manage
ment. Mr. Smith dened that a company
could take off cars when ts business falls
below 20. per cent In volume, while the
Omaha officer said they could be taken
off. He explained that his company ran
specials or trip cars on every line in
Omaha and when the morning and evening
rush is over they take off or put on cars
according to the needs of ths patrons. Mr.
Smith said his company runs some spe
cial cars, but be contended that If the
trafflo ts comfortably carried and business
falls off 30 per cent for a short time the
company Is not Justified In changing Its
time card. Mr. Leussler believed, that In
such a Caae too many cars were run In
the first place and that the falling off In
trafflo could be met. by tha taking off
of specials or trip ears between the morn
ing and evening rush.
Commissioner Purse made light of the
gross receipts basis by asking Mr. Lues-
ler If ths gross receipts of the Brandeis
store in Omaha would not be Just as fair
basis aa the receipts of the street car
company. Mr. Ltuesaler thought It would
not because the trade of a mercantile busi
ness depends on esasons and special sales.
