DEMOS LOSE OUT
ON YOIEJH MAINE
Republicans Show by Records
of Other Elections Actual""-'
REPUBLICANS HAKE GAIN
(From a fluff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Sept 15. (Special.) In
the returns from Maine the state
. house democrats are trying to make
out that the democrats made a gain
of 30 per cent in the vote cast this
year 'as comapred with that cast in
. the state in 1912.
, In doing so they, either ignorantly
; or intentionally, compare the vote on
Wilson in 1912 with that of the demo
: cratic candidate for governor in 1916.
However, if one checks up the figures,
' ' as has. been done at republican head-
quarters, he will discover that Wilson
I, received only 51,113 votes in 1912 in
Maine, while the democratic candi
date that year for governor received
. 67,748. Therefore, if Mr. Wilson fell
; 16,635 votes below the democratic
candidate for governor in 1912, it is
" reasonable to believe that he might
do the same this year and, if so, his
vote this year would be exactly 49,
912, a little more than 1,000 votes
less than he received four years ago,
and instead of being a gain of 30
per cent, as the democratic "if" prog
nosticators figure, it would be a fall
ing off the other way. - '
Just to keep political history re
garding the vote in Maine straight,
the vote on governor in the last four
elections shows as follows:
Illl, ......I .73,415 54, 7J
11S ,. (7.748 71.048
im cut , 68.86:
. In 1914 the progressive vote for
governor was 18,225. So, taking the
vote on governor in 1912, which is the
year from which the democrats have
been trying to gather a little consola
tion by comparisons which do not
' compare, the democrats have lost
1,207 votes, while the republicans have

Lincoln. Neb.. Sent. 15. (Special.)
ShiDoers from many points in the
state attended a hearing today of the
Railway commission on the proposed
new tariff for refrigerator cars, the
proposed tariff would be $25 for cars
up to 250 miles and $40 for all dis
tances over that within the state.
Hastings shippers stated at the hear
ing that there where cars have been
costing them $10 under the hew tariff,
the cost would be $35. The general
complaint of shippers is that the in

VICTOR WILSON -CHANGES
His Brief , in Telephone Case
Shows How 'He Once
Viewed Phone Bates,
HANDED BOAST TO FARMER
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
a Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 15 (Special.).
Rates on farm , line telephones
should be raised, according to Victor
Wilspn, . democratic candidate for
state railway commissioner. This
statement was made about a year ago,
before Mr. Wilson had become a can
didate for railway commissioner, and
in a brief filed with the state railway
commission in the case of William
Marquis vs. the Polk County Tele
phone company, and before Mr. Wil
on began his criticism of the state
railway commission for permitting
the raise of rates on certain lines.
"The rates prayed for by respondent
discriminate unjustly against the
users of business telephones." said
Mr. Wilson, in his argument. Con
tinuing, he said:
"This is true especially between
'farm' and'business' subscribers. The
merchant pays $30 per annum, to an
average payment by the farmer of
$13.44, and the cost of supplying the
service to the latter is nearly treble
that of the former. According to the
evidence herein, the cost of construc
tion per station in the country is
double that in town, the cost of main
taining country lines is from 60 to 65
per cent greater than town lines, and
there is little difference, if any, in the
respective costs of operation. That
this amounts to unjust discrimination
is plainly apparent and needs no ar
Merchant Doesn't' Gain.
"And the practice cannot be justi
fied ton the theorv that the merchant
is correspondingly benefited. The av
erage merchant is not the grain and
live stock dealer, the bank or the de
partment store owner, but rather the
owner of a grocery store. Below the
latter are many small shops and me
chanics. And" the farmer does not
order goods from, a grocery-over the
telephone, as no country town mer
chant - delivers iroods to the farmer
after the practice of town deliveries.
in tact, as far as the telephone is
concerned, practically all of the mer
chants in country towns would be
better off without country service..
The farmer then would come to town
oftener, the merchant would have
greater opportunity to exhibit his

wares, and the temptation of the
farmer to buy would be greater, and
the undoubted result would be greater
sales by the merchant.
Farmer Should Pay.
"Also, the argument that the mer
chant is better able topay more than
the averaee cost of maintaining a
public service, is without foundation.
The fact is well established that the
average town merchant is much less
prosperous than the average farmer,
and that adversity is coming upon
him at a rapid rate, due to the mail
order business of the farmer. As an
illustration of this condition, and
strictly in point in this case, the rec
ords of freight received at the
Stromsburg railway station show that
farmers received more merchandise,
and from mail order houses, than the
local merchants, in the months of
January and February of this year.
Our country towns are in grave dan
ger of practical extinction by reason
of this transfer of trade, and it is high
time that the' farmer should be called
upon to pay his just share of com
"Reverting to the question of who
derives the greater benefit from the
telephone the merchant or the
farmer the - advantage undoubtedly
lies with the farmer, as the telephone
is essentially a distance and travel
saver. Its function is to transmit and
receive information which could be
accomplished otherwise only by
travel. And it is safe to say that the
average distance the farmer woultfi
have to travel to accomplish this pur
pose, but for the telephone, is ten
times greater than the corresponding
distance for the merchant or towns
