(From a Staff Correspondent.)
1JNCOLJ. Msy 15. Ppclal.) The Bute
Railway commission will make no achedule
of rate until Jul," 1, the time the maximum
freight rate law and the iaw reducing; ex
press charges 2S per rent goes Into effect.
In the meantime the commission will put
In lt time setting familiar with the rate
now In force and Id preparing- Itaelt to
Intelligently act when the time cornea In
July. Special ratea, of course, will be
made during the time between now and
July on complaint after a hearing, but
a the time 1 o Bhort the commission
think It not advisable to go ahead and
tut In a achedule of rate only to be com
pelled to set out another achedule after
the freight and expresa reduction law
go Into effect. Representative of expresa
companies have asked for another hear
ing or conference before any rates or re
duction) are made and this probably will
be granted them. j
. To put Into effect a new schedule of
rate at thl time the commission would
have to give the road ten days' mtice
of a hearing, after which the companle
would have thirty days In which to adopt
th ratea. Thl would take the matter
up to almost the time the reduction rate
bills go Into effect, and would necessitate
the railroad getting out two schedules.
The Impression prevails that the commis
sion expect litigation from, the railroad
over the maximum freight rate law and
it 'Is believed It 1 for that reason also
that It prefers waiting until thl law goe
Into effect before adopting all new rates,
ao that the litigation will coma over the
legislative enactment.

Grand Island had their representatives
before the Stat Board of Aaaessment tils
morning and thl afternoon A. W. Serto
li er and R. J. Clancy of the Union Paclflo
and R. D. Pollard of the Burlington added
a little to what they already told the
board. The first two railroads were repre
sented by John I Pratt and Fred Uhlman,
each of whom assured th board his road
had little property in the state. Mr. Bcrlb
ner discussed the securities held by the
Union Paclflo, which. In his opinion, should
be deducted from the value of the road as
found by the value of the stocks and bonds.
He told- the board these securities had
nothing to do with the value of the prop
erty It had to assess In Nebraska and Illus
trated It by saying If the Union Pacific
organised a holding company to take over
those securities they would not be reported
at all to the Nebraska board, and there
fore be desired the -member to keep thle
In mind when arriving at the assessment
of his company. He and Mr. Pollard both
wanted the board to make the assessment
on the property In Nebraska and not npon
the- wealth of the company.
