LINCOLN, Feb. 18. (Speclal.)-The
largest attended meeting ot any organ
isation which has been held In Lincoln
for a long time Is that ot tho Nebraska
Threshermen's association, now at tho
Lincoln hotel. Not only Is the attend-
anco great, but tho Interest Is exceed
ingly lively, caused principally by a dis
cussion regarding tho action ot the
County Commissioners' association In
passing resolutions asking for tflo repeal
of tho so-called twenty-ton bridge law.
Tho throshormen say that this resolu
tion was aimed directly at them and they
propose to seo that It Is not repealed.
Redhot addresses against tho action ot
the county- commissioners wero mado by
several members of tho association and
a general feeling seems to exist that tho
commissioners stepped out ot their way
to recommend the repeal of a law which
lllir Hutu Invented.
A showing was mado by Prof Chase
ot tho State Agricultural school that
there was Invested In traction engines In
Nebraska $G.T00,000, to tho number ot 4,800
engines, with a combined horsepower of
M7.CO0. Tho figures, which were taken
from tho last census reports, according
to Prof. Chase, show also that thcro Is
invested In stationary engines, such as
aro usod by interurban electric roads,
lighting plants, etc., only $1,180,000. or
only 66,000 horscpowor. Ho Insisted that
the traction engine owners wero entitled
to consideration In the making of laws
as well as electrio lignung anu similar

that ho would leave tho whole subject of
