THE BEE: TUESDAY, JUNE 3, 1919. BARROWS STILL FIGHTING FOR STATEFISH CAR 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 present basis." 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 and genius.'"

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 any recourse. 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 three elections.
