Assistant Director Fort Holds
That Railway Administra
tion Is Justified in Re
fusal to Haul Car.
Lincoln, June 2. Gerret Fort, as
listant director of the United States
railroad administration is of the
rjjjinion that the department is hand
ling the transportation "correct in
principle." and that the refusal of
the department to allow any reduc
tion for transportation of the Ne
braska fish car is right and proper,
according to a letter sent by him to
Cong. M. P. Kinkaid, which the lat
ter has sent to Lieutenant Governor
Barrows, who as acting governor
the past two weeks has attempted
to get the fish car transported by
the roads at a reasonable rate.
Mr. Fort says: "Ten cents a mile
for fish distributing cars means a
similar basis for mine rescue, Red
Cross, public health, exhibition,
demonstration and various other
kinds of special cars operated by the
federal government and the states
engaged in public welfare activities
and this case is clearly not war
ranted taking into consideration
high operating costs. In view of
these various considerations it is
hoped that you will coincide that the
railroad administration's treatment
of the problem is correct in princi
ple and is deserving of the support
of those who receive the benefit of
the reduction afforded by the
Lieutenant Governor Replies.
In reply to the letter, Lieutenant
Governor Barrows makes it clear
that he is not in favor of the stand
taken.- He points out that Nebraska
has spend thousands of dollars in
an effort to have her lakes and
streams stocked with fish, and that
it is not merely a case of conserva
tion of food. He also points out
that the fish of the state were a
great help in the conservation of
food, and that the problem is still
an important one.
He says he fails to understand
why the railroad administration re
fuses to haul the car at these rates,
when the railroads, under private
ownership, did not refuse, and
points to the fact that the adminis
tration recently sent three troop
trains from Omaha to Lincoln over
a road where the distance is 92
miles and a four-hour run, when
there are two direct lines between
the two cities of 55 miles each, witlr
hnf s urt-Jinur run
He clrses his letter as follows: .
"When the fish in the lakes of
Nebraska shall have died for want
of water, and have been buried in
some convenient 'blow-out,' I will
go there, and standing over the
grave, tell the fish spirits that may
hover near, that they have not died
in vain, but in the cause of 'economy

REFUSE TO PAY
CITY FEES FOR
County Board Holds Claim
Until Money Due for Feed
ing Prisoners Is Paid
by the City.
The county board refuses to ap
prove claims rendered by Health
Commissioner Manning for similar
services for which Dr. R. V- Con
nell was paid while he was health
commissioner and after he brought
a court action for payment of this
money to himself.
When Dr. Manning was appointed
health commissioner a year ago it
was understood that these fees
would be credited to the city's ac
count, instead of to the personal ac
count of the health commissioner,
as had been done.
Pay for Reports.
Under the court ruling which was
given in favor of the former health
commissioner, the county was re
quired to pay 25 cents for each birth
and death report sent by the health
commissioner to the State Board of
Health. The records show that
Health Commissioner Manning sent
these bills to the countv board:
November, 1918, $46075; January,
1919. $632.75: April 24. 1919, $430.25;
total, $1,523.75. : On July 25 of last
year the county board allowed a
quarterly bill, part of which went to
Dr. Connell and $194.25 to the health
department fund, but that was the
last allowance the county made.
The formality of filing these bills
was all that the health department
has done, until a few days ago when
the matter was called to their at
tention the city legal department
was asked to look into the situa
tion and advise whether the city has
County Wastes Money.
When these fees were a matter
of personal remuneration to the for
mer health commissioner, the county
board paid the bills because the
health commissioner took the case to
court; now that it is a matter of the
city getting the money, it seems to
be a case of everybody's business
and nobody's business insofar as the
health department is concerned.
The only explanation the county
board will make is that bills from
the city will not be approved until
alleged debts owed by the city to
the county are first settled. These
debts are said to be for feeding pris
oners in the county jail and the
city's portion of the expenses of
