Hall lUilway Meunre't Falling by
Wayiide Attributed in Part

LINCOLN. March 7. (Fneclal.)
The defeat by the taouso of H. K
207, known as the bill fathered and
ronaored by Thomas L. Hall, rail
war fommlanloner, In laid at the
door of many, but none more so than
those sturdy folowers of President
Wilson and his policies. Charles W.
Bryan and George W. Berfre.
ProliaMy no two mfn In I.tttfoln, and
In the state, for that matter, havs ad
vocated "holding op the hands of the
president," more than have Mr. Bryan
and Mr. Berg. They fought the Mill
fathered by Mr. Hall, because It was
placing In the bands of the Plate Rail
way commission a power that they should
not hare.
Pwlats Oat Hall.
tn fart, Mr. Berge, In a public address
In Lincoln a week ao with Mr. Hall
slttlnit In the audience, pointed his fin
ger at that official and chanced him with
trying to bring" about leglalatlon that
was "pernicious," and a kit of other
thins, which could net be found In
Webster's unabridged, strong enough to
express what Mr. Berga desired to say.
Mr. Bryan likewise made an attack
on the Mil and was frequently In constil
tattlo with democratic leader In the
house, urging the defeat of H. R. 2HT, be
causa of its pernicious tendencies.
While strong In their denunciation of
any democrat, who will not follow In the
path prepared by President Wilson, It
might be well for theaa men to look
back a little ways and see how President
Wilson stood on the same proposition
which they are charging la "pernicious
and giving power to a commission which
It should not have."
PrarvtsUaa Bill.
The Mil known as H. R. 207, which
Mr. Berga and Mr. Bryan say Is "per
nicious." provided that
"No person, firm, partnership, associa
tion or corporation shall segin the con
structkm or contract, or put In opera
tion any plant, aystem. etc etc., without
1rst ascurlnff permission rtf the Ne
braska Ptate Railway commission."
"When President Wilson waa a candi
date for tha presidency one of the strong
points made in his campaign waa the
oqe regarding his grest public utility law
which ha had passed when he waa gov
ernor of New Jersey. 'By refernng to the
taws of New Jersey and that portion cov
ering the powera of Its commission hav
ing In charge the same duties as the Ne
braska commission, the law reada; .
"The board shall have general super
vision and regulation of. Jurisdiction and
control over, all public utilities, and also
over their property, property rights,
equipment, facilities and franchises so far
as -may be necessary for tha purpose of
carrying ouf tha provision of this act
Deflalttea at Tena.
"The term 'pubUo utility la hereby de
fined to Include every Individual, copart
nership, association, corporation or Joint
stock company, their lessee, trdeteea.-or
receivers appointed by any court whatso
ever that now or may hereafter own,
operate, manage or control within the
atate of New Jersey any steam railroad,
street railway, traction railway, canal,
express, subway, pipe line, gaa, electric
light, heat, power, water, oil, sewer, tele
phone and telegraph system, plant er
equipment for publlo use. under privileges
granted or hereafter to be granted by tha
state of Nuw Jersey or any political sub
division thereof."
Tha above section will be found on
page 871 of tha session laws of New Jer
sey for the year 1911.
At another place In the same laws will
be found In chapter 1(6, page & section
14. the following:
Mast Be Approved.
"No privilege or franchise hereafter
granted to any publlo utility as herein de
fined, by any political subdivision of this
state, shall be valid until approved by
said board, such approval to be given
when, after hearing, said board deter
mines that such privilege or franchise Is
necessary and proper for the publlo con-
venleco and properly conserves the pub
lic Interests, and the board ahall have
power In so approving to Impose such
conditions aa to construction, equipment,
maintenance, service or operation as the
publlo convenience and Interests may
reasonably require."
If the To mHall bill wss "pernicious
and gave greater powers to a commis
sion thsn It should hsve" In Nebraaka,
what kind of a word would define the
powers given to a Ilka commission In New
Jersey under the above law written and
fathered by President Wilson when gov
ernor of that state?
The law as proposed In the deceased 307
and the one authorised by President Wil
son are nearly alike, but differ only In
one regard, that the powera given tho
New Jersey commission are more "perni
cious" thaa 207 dared to give.

It continued:
"Everybody here Is suffering. The
whole city Is unssnltary, as we have
been without water for a long time. The
streets have not been cleaned for months.
No foodstuffs sre being broiight Into the
city. It seems that they are trying to
starve tis out and they surely sre suc
ceeding. "I have eaten no bread for dsys and can
not get flour to make it. Kven tortillas
snd cornmeal cannot be had. No one
seems to know what to do. Most of the
people here have to stand whstsver hap

Priests Exiled.
NEW YORK. March . The atory of
how twenty-two priests were driven from
Mexico by General Oarranza because of
their inability to raise ljoo.ono as a tax
to be paid to the Mexican government.
was told today by members of a groap of
seven of the priests, who reached here on
the steamer Montevideo. I
The priests were in rags. They said
they were tho last of tha twenty-two
and that among those exiled were Ger
man, French, Italian and Spanish piiesta
and one Turk.
The twenty-two priests, they said, and
others numbering 350 altogether,' were
summoned by General Ohregon to the
national patare In Mexico City and or
dered to raise a IfiOO.OOO tax. When the
priest pleaded that they could not raise
this miney they were told that they
would havo to do so or leave the coun

The money waa not raised and the
priests said they were locked In the pal
ace all night They alept on the stono
floor. The next morning diplomatic rep
resentatives of their several governments
demandod their release The demand was
acceded to on condition that the priests
leave the country.
A special train wss pulled Into the
Buena Vista station, the priests said, and
on thta the foreign priests were ordered.
By the time tho train reached Vera
Crus only eleven of the party of twenty
two were left, several having gotten off
at way stations. Four of the eleven
failed to appear on shipboard, although

show slight increase due largely to the
uaunl spring import bualness with con
sequent enlarged receipts from customs.

next few months there may be a further
reduction. If Increased receipts from
customs from March 1 until the end of
the fiscal year In June is sufficient to
keep the present deficit at a standstill,
the income tax may possibly wipe it out
