Lincoln, Neb., May 24. (Special.)
A proposed increase of $1,500,000 in
the assessment valuationsof main
lines properties of Nebraska railroads
went over until another day when
two memberi of the State Equaliza
tion board today objected to any in
crease. At a conference yesterday it
had been agreed there would be only
a small, if any, increase in the valua
tions, Stale Auditor Smith proposed the
$1,500,000 boost, after State Treas
urer George E. Hall had moved to
leave the valuations at the present
figure. Mr. Smith said he would be
unable to support Mr. Hall's motion
and he thought his proposal would
be about right. lie said the proposed
increase represented about 5 per cent
cetn on the main lines and 3 per
cent for the total railroad property
in the state.
i Smith's proposal raised a protest
from both Land Commissioner Ueck
rnann and Secretary of State Pool.
Hall said he had examined the valu
ations on file with the railway com
iniswoii and foundy the pproerty of
the carriers had not increased within
the last few years. He said he was
told by the commission that the ril
toads were paying more taxes in pro
'poriion than is assessed on farm land.
Hall cited the examples of the Mis
souri Pacific and the Kock Island as
proof that additional valuations
should be made. ,
"1 want someone to show me
where and how railroad property lias
increased in value before I vote for a
raise," -asserted Hall. "1 believe that
in the past railroads have been taxed
nearer to their par value than have
farm lands. It does not necessarily
follow that because lands have in
creased in value that railroad prop
Hetkmann agreed with Hall that
while farm and city property has
been going up in value, he doubted
whether railroad property had.
" I his lliiiiK was all talked over yes
terday and I art r,.;r.!risd that it
should conic up now, said be
Governor More head, Secretary of
State Tool and Auditor Smith all
favored the 3 ier cent increase.
Final action will undoubtedly be
taken at the meeting of the Equaliza
tion board Thursday morning. It was
indicated at the meeting of the board
t! at real estate vatuam were also
in for a small boost.

Hastings, Neb., May 24. (Special
Telegram,) "Either Koot orHughes
will be satisfactory to me," asserted
C. G, Lane, delegate to the republican
national convention from the Fifth
congressional district, today. "1 ex
pect to vote for Hughes after the first
or second ballot," Mr. Lane edded.
"As 1 understand my duties as a dele-'
gate, it is a matter of courtesy to vote
tor the choice of the people of Ne
braska on perhaps the first ballot. I :
shall do so by voting for Cummins
once, and then I expect to exercise
my own judgment.
"When I consented to have my
name placed on the ballot for dele
gate at the recent primaries I did so
with the understanding that I was
not to be instructed. 1 wished to be
a free lance, but of course 1 expect to
vote for Cummins twice at least.
"I don't believe Roosevelt has any
chance of being nominated at Chi

Look at what it did to Hryan in this
state at the recent primaries. The
people repose confidence in Hughes.
Kven though they don't know how lie

questions of the day they believe in
Mayor Ma'dgett today vetoed an
ordinance giving -the St. Joseph &
Grand Island railroad the right to

that the railroad should pay for the
strip used or pave the street. No at
tempt was made to pass the ordi
nance over the payor's veto.
