Board of Agriculture
To Re-Elect Old Officers
(Prom Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln. Jan. 16. (Special.) There
will probably be little or no change
in the personnel of the official roster
of the State Board of Agriculture at
the election tomorrow.
It is said there appears to be a senti
ment very strongly in favor of Presi
dent J. A. Ollis holding for another
term and it also appears that the other
officials will be continued without "op
position. Secretary Mellor, with his record
for doing things, appears to be
strongly entrenched in the office and
there appears to be little or no senti
ment this year to deny him an elec
tion, although the names of E. R. Pur
cell of Broken Bow and E. R. Daniel
son of Osceola have been mentioned.

Lincoln, Jan. 16. (Special.) Cover
ing the sale of school lands of the
state, Senator Robertson of Holt
county in a long statement on condi

If It is wrong to sell the bcIimqI lands of
the state so that people can Improve and
build homes on them, it was wrong for tho
government to let people settle at all in this
western country. The land should have
been held for posterity. Which is beat?
Land that people can own, Improve, build
homes on and pay taxes on, and thus help
all others who pay taxes, or land held non

Victor Wilson Files Bond;
Only Commissioner to Do So
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Jan. 16. (Special.) -It At
torney General Reed's contention is
right, that a railway commissioner is
not a railway commissioner unless he
has filed bond of $50,000, as required
of other state officers if this conten
tion is right, then Nebraska has only
one railway commissioner.
He is Victor E. Wilson of Stroms
burg, whose $50,000 bond has been
filed With Secretary of State Pool.
Neither Commissioner Hall nor Com
missioner Taylor has given bond, and
as far as that matters, no railway com
missioner has done so since the com
mission was established by constitu
tional amendment in 1906.
The commissioner, however, con
tend that they arc not endowed with
the executive powers of state officers,
and they are consequently relieved
from the bond.
