law, passed at the Ust session, which
provided that each company should pay
into tho state treasury on or heIor the
first day of November of each year i
per cent of Its cross c-arnlnas, are not

Adams and Superintendent Patterson of
tha American, both from Omaha, with
Local Agent Garrison of the Adams,
with Claude Wileon, local attorney for
the local company, called at the office
of the attorney general to take up the
matter of the payment of the tax whlc'i
has not been made, the companies claim
ing; that as long as they pay a general
tax tha payment of the S per cent on
their gross earning is double taxation.
The law provides that in case the tax
is not paid. Or reports made to tha sec
retary of the state board of assessment,
that an additional tax of 10 per cent as
a penalty shall be added.

an Wants to Be
Mayor or He Will Not
Accept City Office
LINCOLN. April 21.-Ppeclal.)-The
city campaign for the commisslonershlp
appears to be settled as far as three of
the canidates are concerned, Dayton,
Schroeder and Hensley, present members,
having the call for a re-election, with
the other two petitions to be fought
out by Mayor Zehrung. Charles Bryan
and Mr- Marshall.
It ia figured that . Bryan has a fairly
good chance of being one of the three,
yet there is auch a sentiment against
him that the other two may beat him
out. Mayor Zehrung is strong with the
business interests of the city and a
banquet the other day in which over 350
business men took part 'as a boost for
him is liable to mean his selection.
Marshall la well liked and if selected
would take charge of the safety depart
ment. Should Zehrung be selected aa ono
ot the five he would have the call on
the " mayorship the very one Bryan
wants and this is bringing Into the fight
some complications. They both, can't
have it and it is said that Brother Char
lie will take no other. It is even hinted
that he would not accept the commls
slonershlp unless it carried the big tnayl
craltyjob with it.
