Everybody's Doing it Now
Officers of Omaha, Lincoln &
Beatrice Ask Permission
for the Issue.
(Prom a 8taf( Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Aug. 25. (Special.) Ap
plication was made to the State Rail
way commission today by officials of
the Omaha, Lincoln & Beatrice In
terurban railroad for .in issue of stock
and bonds amounting to $5,000,000.
The amount will be divided into
$2,000,000common stock. $500,000 pre
ferred stock, and $2,500,000 in bond,
making a total issue of $5,000,000.
President Harvey Musser, who
lives in Ohio, and J. H. Bramelt, su
' perintendent of the road, who is also
superintendent of the Lincoln Trac
tion company, visited the commission
and made the application in oerson.
They said that on account of the
increased cost of material the issue
of $3,000,000 previously asked for
would not be sufficient to cover the
cost, which was figured at $5,820,959.
It is also proposed to make the road
up-to-date in every way, putting in
heavier rails than first proposed and
heavier cars.
Sale of the bonds will have to be
discounted about $800,000, according
to their figures, which will cut the
amount received considerably.
This will cover the complete line
from Omaha to Lincoln, anu will not
include extension to Beatrice.
Harlan May Change
To Commissio nForm
Alma. Neb., Aug. 25. (Special.)
The following petition is Demg circu
lated and largely signed in Harlan
To the county clerk of Harlan county:
We, the undersigned electori, residents of
said county, respectfully petition that the
question of the discontinuance of township
organisation in and for said county, be sub
mitted to the voters of said county at the
next central election to be held on the 7th
day of November, 1910.
In order to have the question sub
mitted it will be necessary to secure
the signature of 10 per cent of the
voters and should it carry at the elec
tion it would ciange the form of
county government from the super
visor to the commissioner system,
thus dispensing with about forty of
ficers in the county. In a case of this
kind the statute provides that the
county judge, county clerk and coun
ty treasurer appoint the commission
ers to hold "office until the next elec
tion. The argument in favor of the
proposition is that it will have a tend
ency to reduce the expense of county
government by abolishing several of
fices and help to shorten the ballot.

expense of blood of others.
