LINCOLN. Neb. Feb. 20. (Special. -Dr.
W. W. Fait, of St. Joseph. Mo., Is
proving he 1b able to keep up with hi
name. At Falls City Tuesday nlsht he
annoonced that he was to tako charge
of the feeble, minded Institute at Hcatrlce.
and he got the place, lie and the .gov
ernor used to live In the same town in
Nebraska years ago, and the fact that he
now lives In Missouri makes no d(f.
The appointment of a bull moo?er at
the Lincoln asylum and other appoint
'ments made by the governor has put
most of the democrats over the state In
a bad frame of mind.
Bernard McNeny of Red Cloud, a prom
inent democrat, who contributes his
name, time and money to tho cause. Is
very much put out at the governor
While here today he said:
"I am not excitedly Interested In poli
tics, and there are so nianv other
patriots anxious to man the ship of state;
I have not found uny fault with the way
that they are doing It. but the democrats
of Nebraska have a right to make a note
of Rome of the Inconsistent appointments
that the governor's office has been hand
ing out recentlj.

"In one breath they turn down for the
petty office of deputy game warden a
good old democratic war hotse like old
Sam Weaver, and in the next announce
tho reappointment of Dr. Williams, the
bull moose captain who did Aldrlch's
bidding and beat the whole state ticket.
"'ft Is now In order to announce the
appointment or Chester H. Aldrlch to the
board of control. The appointment of Dr.
Wllllms, when ninny good democratic
physicians were applicants for the place,
was an Insult to every democrat, who
made the fight against the combination
in- the last campaign. Somebody has
evidently been stuffing the governor with
the Idea that he can evenually land In
the United States senate, If he follows
the policy of rewarding those who fought
the cause, which elevated him to his
temiKirarry Job.
What Morehend Sir.
regarding the appointment of Dr.
Fast, the governor said:
"I regard Dr. Fast a really a Ne
biaska product, he having practiced med
icine In Nebraska for a good many years
before gojng to Missouri, and I know him
personally and he has splendid execu
tive ability and Is especially equipped for
the position. It Is the practice In a
great many states to call men to the head

"This commission and Its departments
prepared over one-third of that brief, re
lating particularly to the questions of the
proper formulas or theories to apply
the apportionment of earnings nnd the a
portlonment of expenses, and the views
presented by It In this brief were con
curred In by the seven other commissions.
This case has been under consideration
before tho supreme court f6r over a year
and the handing down of Its decision Is
expected dally. If the decision, when
rendered, will leave It within the Jurisdic
tion of the various states' to regulate their
intrastate rates, the commission will pro
ceed Immediately with Its investigation,
following the other principles laid down In
such decision ns may be made, and will
make such reductions ns It Is reasonably
satisfied It can sustain In the courts.
Advise No Reduction.
"If the legislature were at this time to
pass rate legislation we mlgnt have the
fcnme experience had by iflnriesoti. Ha
csjnmlBslon promulgated a schedule of
rales which was a reduction In th rates
existing prior thereto, which ''was ac
cepted by the. carriers. Subsequently the
legislature of that state enacted rate leg
islation further reducing rates, and
thereupon an Injunction Issued, not only
against the rates fixed by the legisla
ture, but also thoue promulgated by tho
commltslon. For this legislature to fun
ther reduce rates at this time would not
only Invite an Injunction as to the rate
passed by It, but might possibly .Jeopard
ize the enjoyment of the 2-cent fan
rate and the reduction under the Ald

"If the matter of rate regulation, .s

of the commission with reference to the

finally adopted by It are sound, It
highly Improbable that any court would
issue an Injunction against such an or

and that the rate will go Into effect U
the time specified In the commission's
