More Data Sought
On Closing Three
Lincoln. March li.JL fSnpcinH
j The Nebraska Railway commission
has taken under advisement the com
plaint of the villages of Manley, Wa
bash and Panama, objecting to the
action of the Missouri Pacific , in
removing telegraph keys from the
stations, with instructions' to the vil
lages to report all inconveniences
resulting from removal to the com
mission during the next 30 days.
The hearing was held Tuesday,
when the railroad company made a
showing that at Manley and Wabash
the revenue from telegraph service
was only $26 a year. By taking out
the instruments, the company said it
could effect a saving in salary of $30
a month. ,
Citizens of the communities com
plained that not only would their
commercial service be seriously im
paired, but they would not be able
to properly place car orcjers. It is
on these two questions that the com-
( mission is asking further data.

tion. The woman was accosted on
a road at a wooded spot two miles
from the city this morning.

Anti-Alien Land Bill Big
. Task for Senate Committee
Lincoln, March 16. (Special.)
Although some of the lawyer mem
bers of the senate judiciary commit;
tee favored indefinite postponement
of H. J. 138, the bill patterned after
the California anti-Japanese land bill,
not enough votes were summoned
at the meeting of the committee
Tuesday afternoon when a ballot
was taken to kill" the bill.
Another problem then arose, those
in favor of the bill opposing report
ing it out in its present condition,
without amendments. The committee"
has not vet agreed on amendments.
One objection to the bill is that it
is unconstitutional since it seeks to
amend the present law restricting
non-resident aliens from owning
land, without repealing that law.
