(From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, Oct (Speclal.)-The sec
ond day of tfie rate heortnc before the
Stat Railway commission to a. sre.t ex
tent; covered the same ground already
brought out. It wa expected that the
representatives of the railroads would
have a chance to present their claims
yesterday, but the Jobbers were on the
stand all the afternoon and were still
arguing this morning when the hearing
waa again taken up.
H. J. McVann of the traffic department
of the Omaha Commercial club talked
on the attitude of Omaha on the proposed
rate as prepared by the commission, ire
said Omaha did not have any advantage
over other distributing towns, but was
on a parity with them. Ho was of the
opinion that the proposed maximum class
rates would In effect also be minimum
rates because the roads would not accept
23 per cent reduction and then adjust
their rates lower. He thought that the
best way was for the commission to drop
Its plan and readjust rates in individual
cases wherever It Is needed. He did not
Uilnk this -would be such a big under
taking as many supposed.
Ponttlon of Jobbers.
Mr. Vann thought that the commis
sion's distance rates would require
changes In Interstate rates and it would
causa a hardship to Jobbers all over
the state to adjust their business to the
new schedule If It was enforced. He
thought that the distance rates would
work a hardship on consumers and mer
chants. Merchants on cross-country
roads. In his opinion, would have dif
ferent rates because of the different
length of roads and the trade would go
to the towns which had th oadvantage.
, Under the present rates, he said that
the towns have the choice of several
markets. With the proposed rates the
state would be divided Into zones and
Jobbers would be restricted to their own
In his contention Mr. Vann was sec
onded by Secretary TVhltten of the Lin
coln Commercial club," who believed that
the proposed rate would eliminate Lin
coln Jobbers from the territory on the
Northwestern north of Fremont and the
Union raclflc territory of Central City.
Contea Oppose PInn.
F. J. Coates of Grand Island, represent
ing a wholesale fruit firm, made a strong
plea against the proposed rates, contend
ing among other things there was .a lack
of spread between the different classes.
The commission In preparing the sched
ule of rates which Is the bone of con
tention is endeavoring to follow the plans
.of commissions of Iowa and other states,
but according to Chairman Clarke the
proposed rate is not as strong as that In
vogue In Iowa. "We areendeavorlng to
.i,rielp the consumer," said Mr. Clarke this
' morning, "and we are tryiiyj to estab
. llsh a rate which will enable) htm to get
his stuff at a little less than he Is pay
C. H. Kelsey of Norfolk was in the
limelight most of the time this forenoon
In opposition to a flat distance tariff and
defended the right of Jobbing centers to
make lower rates than those in effect In
Mr. Kelsey thought that Norfolk was
entitled to an advantage in rates over
the smaller towns In that locality, but
the town would be satisfied to be put on
an equality with Lincoln and Omaha
and some other Jobbing centers. He said
that at the present Jobbing rates Omaha
and Lincoln can ship to Norfolk terri
tory at slightly lower rates than the Nor
folk merchants could do.
Mr. Kelsey thought that Norfolk should
be allowed to go eust as far as Wayne
and south to WUner on an equal, basis
as Omaha or Lincoln or even Sioux City.
commissioner Hall asked Mr. Kelsey
lr he thrught the rates proposed In or
der No. 19, the distance tariff schedule,
would work an injury to other Jobbing
centers In favor of Lincoln and Omaha,
and the latter replied that he had sup
posed it would.
The Norfolk man thought that rates In
.Nebraska should be made to favor the
Jobbing points within the state

against those without. Ho thought that
It was an economic waste to ship hides
from Nebraska to Massachusetts, manu
facture them there Into shoes and then
reshlp them back to Nebraska, to be put
on the market. "It Is due to railroad
rates which favor the eastern cities," he
For Dtulneu Center.
He was asked by I. D. Kvans of Kene-
saw If he favored rates In Nthruku
which would result In the building up of
certain business centers and he replied
that he did.
"I think that there should be a, specific
schedule of Jobbing rates,' said he. "I
understand that the commission wants
to reduce rates 15 or SO per cent, if that
is the case I believe the present relative
adjustment should be preserved as far
as possible. We are not able to do awav
with all discriminations.

Registration for any of the lands may
be made at North Plate, no matter
whether the lands are situated In tfie

will entitle the lucky applicant to make
lUs selection of land In any of the dts
tricts where land Is to be thrown open
to entry. Registration will be accepted
for two tracts of land In Nebraska,
Tho first and the largest tract Is the
North Platte forest reserve, situated tn
the western part of MoPherson county
and covering also a good part of Grant
county. This forest reserve contains 330,
S acres or 500W sections, which will be
subject to entry under the Kinkald laws,
which allow one section to each entry
man. This land Is much closer to North
Platte than to any other point of regis
tration. At Valentine there are 15,00 acres,
which are subject to entries of 160 acres
each, for which, however, the home
seeker will have to pay the appraised
price per acre. At Valentine there are
also 29,440 acres of ltnd which will be
subject to entries of one section each,
which land will not be appraised and
entryman will not be required to pay
therefor. This will make'nlnety-four 160
acre homesteads and forty-six one-section
The only expense of making entry for
lands under the Kinkald laws, that Is, the
one-section entries, will be the filing fee
of Ut, which will havo to be paid by
those who are lucky enough to draw
iumber entitling therm to file upon
lands. All others will merely pay a small
fee to register.
