Columbus, Sept. 5. Tom L. Johnson
appeared before tho Stato Board of
Railway Equalization yesterday to
present the data collected for him by
1'iof. Kdward Bcmls, the expert, feud
ing to show that the Ohio railroads
aro greatly undervalued, In fact arc
puylug on millions less than a valua
tion proportionate to the farm lauds
and other rail estate.
Tho Board is composed exclusively
of Republican Stato otliclnlH Auditor
of Stato Gullbert, Treasurer Cameron,
Railroad Commissioner Morris, and
Attorney Uuuerul Sheets.
Tho Ohio Statu .lomiml, the Repub
lican organ here, yesterday printed
what seemed to bo an lusplrcd article
to tho effect thnt Johnson would bo
listened to for tippeuiunccs sake, but
nothing that ho might say could in

tho vnlimtluu of railroad property.

Tho Mayor closed his speech with

soin one on the Board would challenge
the Mayor for an explanation. After

Ramsey of tho Wnbash walked up
to the mayor, and, shaking his pencil
at him, began to propound questions
as to why railroad property was as

"1 don't know," nnswercd tho mayor.
"Prof. Bemls knows, though."
"Then I call on Prof. Bcmls to ex

temptuously for a moment and then
turned his back.
Ramsey becanio a bit abusive and tho
Mayor sought to cut him short and
risked him to explain why his road was
iibsossed for $18,000 per mllo less In
Ohio than In Indiana.
"You may do your talking outside,

"1 beg your pardon. I will.." said tho
