4a Tha Bee tola morninr. conrerninc the
'course pumied by the Lincoln Star and
tha motive therefor, has atarted tonfim
wajrsina; arid people are beginning to tell
what they know about the affair. Soma,
who pretend to know, put the date of the
declaration of democracy on the part
of tha Star at a time immediately afttr
tha primary. This story la told with auch
circumstance aa to lend credence to the
report, and would, also bear out the
statement that the -principal La Follette
boomer In tha state has no hope of
carrying tha primary, but is simply enl
(aged in tha work of disrupting the re
publicans as fsr as possible. There are
those who pretend to know who say the
n we deal will brtna; several new stock
' holders into the company, all of whom
'are democrats.- and actively Interested
In tha Inner politics of the party.
Just what brand of democracy tha pa
per will espouse appears to be a more
absorbing -topic than the question of Its
democracy. . Soma think, - tills being
I Bryan's home it will be of tbe Falrvtew
' brand, but others, w ho pretend to know
' who the new stockholders will be. In
j list it Is to be Harmon. Color is lent to
this view by the personnel of several
; conferencea which have been held recently
'In Lincoln. This feature of the affair, of
course, la of no Interest to republicans,
but the well defined and circumstantial
' stories of the proposed change should be
enough to warn republicans against fol
lowing headlong a leadership which, -Is

Thief at Lincoln
Robs Choir Members
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jan. SS. (Special.) A rob
bery was pulled oft in Lincoln Sunday
which all the victims have been trying
strenuously to keep from the public. Dur
ing the regular services at Holy Trinity
Episcopal. church some miscreant entered
the robing room and went through the
wraps and coats of the choir members,
which had been left In the room while
the choir was performing Its duties and
took every cent of money the members
had brought with . them. - , .
When the choir was ready to go home
the theft was discovered, and It was as
certained there was not . the price of a
single car tare in the entire party. As
the congregation had departed before the
facts were known there was nothing to
it for the victims but to hoot It tor their
homes. Outside of the money nothing was
taken except a mraj ticket good for two
weeks' feed belonging to one of the. party
and from which he had benefited to the
extent of one meal only. I'p to the pres
ent there la no trace of the thief.

LlKOOLN. Jan. .-Speclal.-The
State Railway commission la up against
a refusal of the Omaha Street Railway
company to make a report to the board
or to give It any aid or assistance la
making a physical valuation of its prop
erty. Some time ago John I Webster,
as attorney for the company, mads an
argument before the board In which he
contended tbe term "railway," used in
the law giving the board the right to
demand a report and alao the authority
te make a physical valuation, did not
mean street rail ways. The board asked
the advice. of toe attorney general and
that official Informed them that while
there was doubt about their power under
the law. and that the contention ot the
street railway probably was correct, the
question at issue was Important enough
to warrant the commission putting It te
a test , ' .
Several plans have been auggested of
bringing the matter to an Issue, one of
them plainly being an action In court
to compel the company to make reports
a?J submit data for aid In a physical
valuation. This would plainly put the
burden on the state and 'In addition
would mean long litigation.
Might Order Fares Cat.
Another plan which might be adopted
brings Into play a- recognised authority
of the board and In addition would throw
the burden upon the street rallaay com
pany. That would be an order reducing
fares, the ' right to regulars which
within the reasonable return on the In
vestment interpretation of the statute
Is unquestioned. This method would
compel the company In Its showing to
disclose practically all of the Informa
tion desired by the board, unless the un
expected should happen and the street
railway put the S-cent fare Into force.
which la a contingency to be classed aa
Improbable. This method Is weak In the
fact that It would not settle the real
point at Issue, but It would obtain the
information desired for the time and the
legislature could eorreot the weak point
in the law for future use.

W. a. Ure of Omaha was on the stand
today before the railway commission In
the hearing on the physical valuation of
the Northwestern railway. He testified
In behalf of the state. He was ques
tioned particularly regarding the value of
the company's terminals In Omaha. Re
took for his basis the assessment made
by Assessor 11. D. Reed In Omaha in
19M. which be considered te be en the
whole equitable. Rs arrived at the con
clusion that the assessed value of the
realty was (1.4. Its actual value, the lat
ter being arrived at by comparing trans
fers, the prices at which owner held
property and his own knowledge ot
Omaha values. He placed the severance
value at one and one-half tlmea th ac
tual value of the property, whereas the
company insista upon a multiple of three.
The state Intends to follow this up with
testimony along the same line by -other
witnesses, pot only on terminal, but on
