Railroad Traffic Men Now Consider

- cUldn In the Minnesota
Freight traffic men ot tho Nebraska
railroad have discovered that they are;
up; against what they consider one of the
most serious problems that have ever
confronted them, and consequently all
of the traffic and legal heads of tho
loads have hurried to Chicago, whore
they, will meet In conferenco with freight
traffic directors- to figure out a .way to
combat order No. 19 of the Nebraska
State Railroad commission, which, It Is
contended, la confiscatory, and which, It
enforced, woWd' put the Nebraska lines
out of business.
I ru September,. 1909, the Nebraska corn
mission promulgated order No.-19,- provid
ing' for a freight rato reduction of-from'
ft) -to GO per cent on all classifications, ex
cepting grain, lumber and coal. Tho data
for the order to go Into effect was fixed,"
but In the meantime the Minnesota
freight rate case was started and the
order was suspended pending a decision
of the court.
Recently the Minnesota cose was de
cided by the courts and adversely to the
railroads. Now the -Nebraska commis
sion 'has notified the officers ; of the, Ne
braska roads to appear at Lincoln during
the first week in October and-show cause
why! order No. 19 should not be put In
That the railroads will fight order No.

purpose of determining along what lines
the legal battle shall be waged. '

Railroad men hope to win,, but- among'
them there Is a feeling that It'. will bt

taking especially when the decision in
the Minnesota cose is, squarely against'

a general way, the two cases are on all
As to the Nebraska grain, lumber and
coal, rates, the railroad traffic men say
they are now so low that there is no
money in hauling the commodities, and
this, they believe, is the reason why a
still farther reduction is not ordered.
The classifications that are to be af
fected by the order takes in merchandise
of all kinds, . machinery and practically
everything ttfat'Ts' hauled. The mora
bulky frelght,?Tdwhauled at the lowest

themembers of the board at a meotnlg

The members will appeal to Chief ot
Police Dunn to order the policemen to
respect 'the social iservlce badge. Tho
members have had dlffculty impressing
upon coppers the fact that their stars
are to be respected. It Is said one mem

to! a circus last year and that this re
sulted in the request to the police chief.
Dance hall rules adopted some time ago
were reread after having been returned
by the International Association of Danc
ing'. Masters, which standardized them.
These rules will be posted in conspicuous';
places In dance halls.

TABLETS RECEIVED HERE
Henry V. Kleser, of Kleier'a book store,
has just received some mors interesting
tablets from Edgar J. Banks, who has
probably mode more explorations Into
Qabylonian- history than any man ot
the present' time and who' but recently
returned 'from there, bringing with him a
large number of tablets. These were
found by' Arabs, under his direction. They
all bearInktrlptlons 'which are readable
to men who understand the helroglyphlc
languages. These tablets have been
scattered, through the ' United States,
among about forty museums and public
libraries, including the Congressional
'lbrary at Washington. .It is possible
:hat come of them will be retained In
lie city for the Omaha Public library
md museum. They are of a peculiat
construction, representing materials
I mewhat like modern -clay. They art
.oi y llsht and yet the substance seemi
ja be quite hard. The Inscriptions arc
' ore like fine carving. They will be ar-
an-ed so that they can be seen and
r&rd'ed by those Interested, in the
Kier book store, in the Young Men's
christian association building. Many of
ihtiri are 6.000 years old.

at the stock yards at 4:15 and hied him
self to Seymour lake club, where the
