(From a. Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Dec. 25. (Special.) Dr.
"Winnett of the atate railway commission,
lias returned from Coiad, where he con
ducted a hearing- on the petition of pat
ron of the Irrigation ditch at that place
for better service. "A large amount of
testimony was Introduced and at Its con
clusion Uje doctor requested that the peti
tioners submit briefs on the question of
the jurisdiction of the commission to deal
with th question presented. These
briefs will be turned over to the attorney
general and if that official decides the
commission has jurisdiction, some action
will be taken.
The law clearly gives the commission
jurisdiction over water rates, but there
is some doubt whether the commission
or the irrigation board has control over
matters of service. The Gothenburg ditch,
involved In the controversy, presents a
complicated situation, tangled up with
litigation now pending In the supreme
court. The Coiad power canal formerly
tapped the Platte river some distance
above the Gothenburg Irrigation ditch and
after using the water for power purposes,
emptied it into the Gothenburg irrigation
ditch. The Kearney people objected and
procured an injunction. If this is sus
tained, the Cozad power ditch will be
forced to empty the water back Into the
JMaltft some distance- below the, head of
the Gothenburg ditch. There is sixteen
mllrs of main ditch in the Gothenburg
system. x

Railroad Employes Complain at the
Rule Just Promulgated.
One Writes to The lire Setting Oat
Ills Views of How the Men
Will He Affected After
January, 1012.
Railroad employees are not greatly
pleased at the'new rule on passes that
goes Into effect on the first of the com
ing year. It will cut down the amount
of "Joy riding" very materially, nhd In
some ways will Interfere with the privi
leges hitherto enjoyed by the men. One
of the men affected by the change writes
concerning the rule In the following fash
ion: GRAF, Neb., Dec. 22. To the Editor
of The Bee: I wish to register a pro
test In behalf of 15,000,000 or more of our
best cltlsens against a recent ruling of
the Interstate Commerce commission. If
you are not. In any way, crowded for
space will you kindly publish this article
and give It as much prominence as pos
sible? We would especially he pleased
to have you comment on It editorially If
you think the subject of sufficient im
portance. Recently the various railroad officials
sent out a circular letter containing In
structions for the future guidance of all
railroad employes when requesting trans
portation for themselves or families. It
Informs us that these Instructions were
handed down to them by the Intel-state
Commerce commission, and. In substance,
are as follows:
"That all requests for transportation
must be made In writing, either with dur
able Ink, or with a typewriter; they
must give' the names and ages of chil
dren; that the only persons authorised
to Issue passes will be the presidents of
the railroads; and that all requests for
pssses must be sent to them by mall;
that the only exception to these Instruc
tions Is a provision supposed to cover
cases of extreme sickness, or death."
Effect of the Rale.
On its face this ruling seems very In
nocent, and destined to accomplish much
good by making it impossible for anyone
to unlawfully obtain and use free trans
portation. We much doubt if It will
ever accomplish this, or any part ot It.
But even granting that It will accomplish
all they expect of It, does the end justify
the means? We think not, and with good
It Is true that this ruling does ndt ac
tually . forbid the use of passes by em
ployes, but it has so restricted and handi
capped them in getting free transporta
tion that. In effect, It amounts to pro
hibition. As all, familiar at all with the railroad
employe, may know, railroads have no
set rule permitting their employes to
have vacations. It Is within the province
of superiors to refuse or grant vaca
tions. Each request for a vacation Is
considered and decided according to cir
cumstances, and about the only consider
ation seems to . be the company's con
venience. If they happen to have a man
handy to relieve him be may get away.
This is the usual case with all classes of
employes. With the employe whose
duties are of a technical nature It is
usually months, and sometimes from one
to three years, before the company sees
fit to relieve htm. Sometimes It is be
cause they are unable to pick up a man
competent to perform the duties of the
position, but it Is, in most cases, their
indifference to their employes' welfare.
Pay Fare or stay at Home.
After requesting a lay-off they can
never tell just what day the company wni
relieve them. Usually they never Know
until the relief man steps up and Intro
duces himself. Then, If he has to take it
up with the president for transportation.
It will be from three to fifteen days be
fore he can get It. In this way he loses
a large part of his vacation time laying
around waiting for his pass. If the dis
tance be short he would prefer to pay
his fare than to lose all that time. He
would make money by it.
Many times an employe sees an oppor
tunity to take a short trip without the
necessity of having a man to relieve him,
but he has no pass, and the only way he
can get one Is to write to the president,
usually hundreds, and sometimes thous
ands of miles away. The opportunity
passes before he can get his request in
the mall. Sometimes It is a matter of
urgent business and they are compelled
to go on short notice. In such cases
they have to either pay their fares-few
of them are able to do that, work their
"rabbit foot" with the conductor who
stands a good chance of getting caught,
and not only lose his Job, but may be
prosecuted under the same law that made
It necessary for the other man to ssk for
a ride without proper transportation. Of
course, he could have saved the con
ductor his Job and reputation by hunting
a "side-door" sleeper.
Under the old system of Issuing passes
none of these things could possibly hap
pen for, when he could get away he was
certain of getting his pass within a few
hours at the most.
Under the new system with all Its re
strictions you will not know what the
effects will be on the employes. It
means that they will loose much time
and millions of dollars In money, and will
be deprived at many. If not all, the little
pleasure trips tliey have enjoyed In the
In the light of these facts who -will
claim that this ruling Is n benefit to the
people of the United States, or to any
particular class or Individual?
If the commission really established
this ruling then who do they claim it will
benefit, and In what way?
rirtierita the Railroads,
So far as I can see the only ones bene
fited are the railroads. Is it possible
tlmt the railroads are back ot the com
mission In this deal? It certainly looks
suspicious. It Is well for the employes
to investigate and if they find that this is
the case, to arise in a body and demand
reparation, either by removing all un
necessary restrictions that Interfere with
them in obtaining that which the laws
allow- them, or furnish annual passes
for all.
If, upon Investigation, they find that
the commission has catered to the
wishes of the railroads in this Instance,
their recall should be demanded.
No wonder this country and Its people
are flocking to the soclsllst party. There
will be a stampede some of these days
If those high In authority do not sit up
and take notice. The railroad employee
Is just beginning to feel his Importance,
and It will be well for the law makers
and others to consider his Interests.
Thy are very considerate of the farmer,
of the merchant and especially so of the
great capitalists except, possibly, the
The civil service employe gets his
thirty days vacation each year without
loss of pay, and the railroad employes
pay no little part ft this thirty days
pay. No one ever heard them kicking
about their getting It. On the con
trary, we are glad they get It. It is a
part of their annual Income and they ex
pect It.
So, in a like manner, we consider the
pass and expect It. The only way we
see out of It, as stated, the annual pass
for all employes. We believe the sooner
it comes, the better.

Officials of the burglary Insurance com
panies are In despair over exploits by
feather and fur burglars, two more of
which were added on election night to Jhe
already long list which the New York
police and private detectives are Investi
gating without suocess co far.
In one of these latest robberies the
thieves employed an entirely new device
to prevent noises in their operations
which might lead to discovery.' The In
strument employed was an ordinary um
brella, and the police say no other um
brella probably ever was put to such use.
. It wss In the fur shop of Enerlck &
Beyer, at 34 East Twenty-first street, that
the burglars utilised this new safety de
vice. Incidentally they escaped with $10,
000 worth of furs. The robbery was dis
covered when the place was opened for
business the following morning. , There
was a gaping hole in the celllag of the
first floor, and in a corner reposed an
open umbrella, upside down and filled
with big pieces of plaster. It was some
time before the detectives summoned
from headquarters could determine how
the umbrella had been used.
The second floor of the building Is un
occupied at present, and the detectives
finally pieced together the story, of tha
robbery, beginning with the assumption
that the burglars had secreted themselves
In the vscant loft before closing time. In
the night they had started to cut through
the floor. When they had removed all the
woodwork between two Joists, they found
the plaster of the celling below them. Just
beneath their hands. Then, the detec
tives decided, the umbrella was called
into play.
A small hole was cut carefully In the
plaster, care being taken that no large
piece should be dislodged to fall with a
resounding thud on the. floor below. Then
the umbrella was Inserted through this
hole, and when it had been passed com
pletely through was opened and drawn up
against the celling.
A receptacle for the falling plaster was
thus formed, and Into the open umbrella
the thieves could smash the plaster, safe
In the assurance that none would fall to
the floor and sound the alarm. The plaster-laden
umbrella could be lowered to the
floor, once the hole had been made large
enough for the passage of a man's body,
and the rest ordinarily would be easy.
In this case, however, Mr. Knerlck and
the detectives directed attention to the
especial skill of the butglars, who made
their entrance into the fur shop through
a celling lined with burglar alarm wires.
The evidences of their method in over
coming this difficulty Isy before the eyes
of the detectives, for two boards covered
a pair of wires, so ncsr together that even
a thin man would have had to squirm
very gently between them to avoid con
tact with them. Vet through this bole
the thieves had lowered themselves and
got away with a quantity of furs which,
Mr. Knerlck said, r.ould have been moved
only in a wagon. New York Times.
