Oeorgo L Cnrmen , superintendent of th < Western Rnlhvny Weighing Association RIK Inspection bureau. Is In the city from Chi- cngo. There is nothing particularly noteworthy - worthy connected with this fact of Itself but It Is said that during a visit to this cltj by Mr Cnrmen last summer two shipper ! were detected by him in making false classi fication of goods loaded In cars nnd were ar rested for so doing This fact furnishes n Imln for the belief that Uio existence of sim ilar conditions brings Mr. Carmen to this cltj ngiln nt this time. Thoxe la n provision in the Intarstnto com merce law ngainst the wrong classification of freight , nnd its violation Is punishable bj flno or jail sentence. Railroad companies nrn to Jin extent dependent upon the utnto- mcnt of. the shipper ns to the character ol the goods loaded in tbo cars used To make a personal Inspection of every cnr to learn the nature of the freight It contains would require n. larger force of men than any of the companies deslro to keep for that purpose. At freight distributing centers a speclcfl ot Inspection is made where a per cent ol the cars , taken nt random , nro examined nml the results taken to Indicate the condi tion In nil care at that point nt the time of .Inspection. At the point of destination of the freight n further examination la made , but with all these precautions and the provisions of tbo Interstate commerca Jaw , freight is being continually shipped under a wrong clarification , the purpose lMlng to secure n loner rate for the trans portation. Merely a Jt baa boon suggested that some of the railroad companies are wont to practice this or permit It to bo done to furnish n means for cutting under the regular tariff Bhcolfl , but It is not believed any ot the roads In this city nro suspected of this con duct. In fact , local railroad men say they nro more interested in getting their legiti mate profit on the business they handle than iu securing now business by violating the la\v. lav.At At liny rate Mr. Cnrmen has been hen Kcvernl days and It is alleged ho Is conduct ing nn investigation along this line Ordinarily his professional trips to a cltj do not cover wore than a day. This belle ! is oncoiiragod by the report that there hai been n growing nmount of this wronj classification of freight by shippers fron this point. Numerous complaints have heel Illcd with the proper authorities nnd thes < nro boliovcd to have caused Mr. Carmen tc como hero to look Into tbo matter ngnln 01 Us own nccount.

The most Important haul was of Company D , Seventh Infantry , which was 'brought ' down from Fort Snelllng by the Milwaukee and taken at once to Port Crook , where It will do g-ir- rlson duty nfter the departure of the bat talion of the Sixteenth infantry. A party ot forty-nine from Columbus , O , pas ed through on Its way to the Presidio nt San rrnncisco. Twenty of these were Red Cross people , who traveled over the Northwest ern nnd Union Pacific. The others were recrslts and. traveled over the Burlington During the afternoon another party of twenHy-threo , also bound for the Presidio , went vest over the Union Pacific. The roads nro now interested in knowing which one will qet the haul of the troops In the east destined to Borvlco In the Phil ippines. Contracts for the hauling of three leglmonts of Infantry nnd two batteries of artillery , wttb liorsea nnd equipment , have been let in New York City. All of the transportation will too by the Ogdcn gatu- Tay lines and will probably go through this city , but none of the local roads had re- colvcd Information which line will bo used from the Missouri river west.

Snow In the far west has again brought 'trouble to the Union Pa cific , and No. \ twas twoho hours Into. It Is said that a freight was the cause of the delay of tlie passenger train , the for mer being blocknd by the snow. The Elk- liorn road reports heavy snow along Its line In the northwestern pnrt of tbo state , but no far no dolny has resulted to traffic. All of the roids nro on the lookout for high water thla spring. Reports received ludtcato that the mountains are full of snow , nnd thnt when the spring thaw be gins there will bo an abundance of water In all ( lie streams , which , taken with the hca\y ice which is In the rivers , may cnuse damngo to bridges. This will bo especially BO along the rivcis in Nebraska , where the bottoms are so unstable , nnd the banks so low. However , there is a feeling of confi dence on the pnrt of each of the roads here that they will bo able to prevent any bad washout * , or serious damage to bridges. Careful examinations and tests nro being muda at the exposed pi ices , and these will bo increased ns the water approaches tlie danger limit. .S | < T 'i > i > llooii In llnllriiiiil Service.

PROPERTY OWNERS PROTEST INot SnflNflert with Plnn of AsspsNineiit ItclaUnir to Soutliii ct lloulctartl. The city council ns n Board of Equaliza tion has received n number of protests ngalnst the plan of assessment drawn up for the Southwest boulevard and many moro are expected , Chairman Burmester of the beard is continually besieged by the dissatis fied property owners who are called upon to pay a tax. All these complaints , however , must be Incorporated in a shape of written piotcsts , which nro to be considered at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon. As was anticipated , these objections are coming from the taxpayers whose property- is located some distance from the boulevard and who , therefore , secure very little direct benefit from it. This class is objecting to the plan of assessment because they do not think they ought to bo taxed. They assert that the whole city should bear a portion ot the taxation if they do and they therefore advocate the issuance of bonds to pay for land that Is to bo condemned Most of the complaints so far are from small property owneis , although John A. Crelghton and the Union Pacific have entered the list of the Protestants The railroad his been assessed about $1,500 against its rlght-of-wny , which the boulevard crosses. "Tho plan of assessment which has been adopted Is the most equltublo nnd economical that could be devised , " says Park Commis sioner Comlsh , who has been assisting Chairman Burmostor In meeting tbo com plaints. "Tho tax should bo scaled back , because if it was unloaded entirely upon the property immediately adjoining the route of the boulevard , It would mean virtual con fiscation. It bonds were issued for the boulevard , property owners whoso land is desired would unquestionably boost up the values. By the present plan we have se cured land nt the lowest possible prlco and have received considerable donations. " Alilioiiiii-oiiicnlN.

Howard applied to the au thorities for n warrant for the arrest of her husband. She < \vas told that she would have to prosecute the case it the informa tion -was filed and this apparently dampened her ardor , as she failed to appear again. Mrs. Howard came here from Kansas about two weeks ago to visit her brothei. She sa > e her husband preceded her for the purpose of accepting an engagement at a local music hall. The brother lives out on Fortieth and Leavcmvorth streets , so How ard explained that It was impossible for him to get homo nt night , as his engage ment kept him until after the midnight hour when the cars stopped. This necessitated the renting of a room down town and like wise aroused the suspicions of Mrs. Howard , although her husband visited her regularly in the afternoon. Finally she made up her mind to go to his room and there , she says , Bho learned that he was paying his atten tions to a South Omaha music hall singer. She stated that ho "went down on the car every night to meet the -woman and came back with her to the room. Mrs. Howard's desires scorned to bo to punish her husband by n few < Injs' impris onment and not to push a serious charge against him. She promised to gather fur ther evidence and return. Her failure to dose so , the county attorney sa > s , has sustained his opinion that the case will not be prose cuted.
