Railroad Man Says Way to Get Rates Is to Ask for Them The Missouri Pacific company oper ates one of the direct lines between Omaha and Kansas City and freight, officials admit that the rate on hay is 9 cents per 100 pounds from here to Kansas City, while from there here it is but 6 cents. "There is an apparent discrimina tion against Omaha and in favor of Kansas City," asserted Assistant General Preight Agent Dozier, add ing, "but who's to blame? Cer tainly it is not the railroad company." Explaining his statement, Mr. Do zier said: "If Omaha has hay to ship to the south, the way to get a rate is to ask for it, When the present 9 cent rate was made on hay shipments from Omaha to Kansas City it was at a time when no hay was shipped south from this market and, so far as that goes, there is, not very much shipped now. "Kansas City in times past had a rate similar to the Omaha rate, but the hay merchants there probably found that they had hay to ship north. They went after the rate ana got it. And, while I am not speaking with au thority, I presume that if Omaha will demonstrate that it has hay to send to Kansas City it can. get just as good a rate there as Kansas City has here. The distance to Kansas City is just about the same as the distance from Kansas City here. "One thing is certain relative to rates, and that is the best possible way to get them is to ask for them and at the same time show why thejr should be granted."

BABY BRIDE WANTS TO WED BETRAYER Ruby Hutchinson, 14, Would Save Walter Raueche from Prison Sentence. TEMPTED BY CITY LIGHTS Whether Walter Rauech will take a baby bride into a honeymoon home, or whether he will start doing a long term in the state penitentiary for wronging the child whom he intro duced as his wife depends solely upon the attitude of the county prosecutor at North Platte.

Sheriff Salsbury of North Platte took Raueche and the Hutchinson girl back to that town Thursday.
