(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, . Nov. 30. (Speclal.)-What
is a public warehouse? This is a ques
tion which seems to bother many people
and the State Railway commission Is
frequently called upon to settle the ques
tion. The latest Inquiry comes from the Van
Wlkle Lumber and Grain company of
York, which has a commission house In
Omaha. This firm Is making contracts
with farmers for grain, the price to - be
agreed on at a later date, subject to
-cent per bushel for storage.
The commission holds that this con
stitutes a sale and therefore Is not under
the warehouse law.
Under- the warehouse law a charge Is
made of 1H cents per bushel -for storage
for the first fifteen days and 1. cent per
bushel after that period..
