PASSES MAY BE ABOLISHED ! KAS msigned as general SOLICITOR FOR BURLLNGTON. railroad Men Think They See This Result of New Rnlinj. CLERKS TO NOT LIKE THE MOVE Official Smr Thry lln Mnt rt Why nallroad Jlra honld fir l.n tltted to t'-rrr Tranvpurta tlon on Oilier I.lnrt. In obedience to the miniate of the In terstste Commerce commission, the rail roads centerinR at Omaha, ttirourh tholr officials, have decided that after January 1 a nw onioi- ()f things will maintain ulth rcferencn to the exchange of passes. The new ruling, as prcylounly an hounced, '.a expected to do away with considerable traveling that tallroad em ployes mlcht expert to do over foreign lines. This ruling makes It imperative that eaeli and every railroad shall desig nate some official through whom re quests of employes for transportation Fhall be made. Already the Northwestern lias designated Vice President Ashton of Chicago as the party. The Burlington has established a "past clearing house" In Chicago and through this applications for freo transportation must go. The Vnlon Pacific is formulating its plana and It Is understood that the Milwaukee will designate one of Its vice presidents as its pass censor. The same plan will be fol lowed by the Rock Island and Illinois Central. Some of the railroad employes feel that the action of the Interstate Commerce commission Is aimed at them. Company officials take a view that is Jost the opposite. They say that under the new rulings of the commission the president of a railroad cannot secure a pass over any line other tnan his own without making an application and having it go through the regular channels. Xo Great Hardship. Head officials of the railroads say that they are unable to Bee where, when, or why the new ruling will work any great hardship upon employes- In the future, if they are entitled to It under company rules, they will receive transportation the same as in the past, the only differ ence being that they will have to make their requests, which will o through the regular channels. Many railroad officials, however, con tend that there is no good buslnesa rea son why their employes should be given free transportation over other roads other than those for which they are working. To show the logic of their argument, they point to the fact that transportation is a marketable commodity, eold at a fixed price and should bo paid for by each person using It. Going into the proposi tion still farther, they add that because a man happens to work in a grocery, hardware or dry goods store there Is no valid reason why his employe should, on Ms own motion, or upon an order given by come associated employe, perhaps a llttlo farther up the line, go to some other merchant and get his goods and supplies for nothing. Mar En Passe. There are some railroad men who see in the recent order of the Interstate Com merce commission the beginning of the end of free transportation. They go so far as to make the prediction that within the next ten years all classes of free transportation will be abolished, so far hs courtesies between lines are concerned. They expect that even railroad president, if they desire to travel on lines other than their own. will have to pay fare. A.I railroad' officials aree that the agents and employes in the smaller cities arc tho ones who will be hardest hit by the commission's newest order. In the. past some of these men have made ex tended annual trips. They have come In contact with the traveling passenger and freight agents of other lines and by rea son of liuvlng done some buslnesa on tho side In the way of securing the routing of passengers and freight, In payment these traveling agents have given them and members of their families passes to somu of the most remote parts of tho United States. Under the new order there will bo no more of this, as the traveling passenger and freight agents will be shorn of tholr authority, not even being able to get passes for themselves unless they make the regulation application and send It up through the regular channel, designated by the commission. Clerks Stay t Home. Railroad men say, too, that the new order will shut out a lot of another kind of travel. In thia'city, for Instance, there aro a lot of railroad clerks and employes who have been In the habit of making little excursions Into the country each Saturday afternoon, returning the follow ing Monday morning. They have had friends In other railroad passenger offices. To theae men week after week these clerks and employes have been going and securing transportation. Now ail of this is likely to otop, unless It can be shown that the trips are necessary, for It Is not considered likely that these travelers will desire to go to the man who requests passes and file their applications for free transportation on other lines.

MATTER OF COST IS THE REASON Dahlman Says the Resolutions as Prepared Do Not Specify How Much the InTestlaratloa Is to Cost the City. Major Dahlman has put his official taboo on the resolutions passed by the city council specifying the course the committees appointed to Investigate light and telephone rates In Omaha were to pursue. "I have vetoed them," said the mayor, "because they do not provide for an ap propriation to cover the cost of the In vestigation. There Is no telling how much money will be needed, as experts may have to be summoned and examined. This has been always my polity to veto con current resolutions providing for such investigation without stating how much It going to cost the taxpayers." Epecial committees of three were ap pointed to investigate the light and tele phone rates and Chairman Funkhouscr of the telephone investigation committee at the next meeting of the council sub mitted a resolution from Assistant City Attorney Lambert outlining the commit tee's work. This resolution was passed after severe opposition by Councllmcn Johnson and bridges. Chairman Hummel of the light committee has made no move toward the investigation owing to the pending litigation over the light com pany's franchise. It Is the opinion of At torney Lambert that Mayor Dahlman has the legal phase of the question on hU side In vetoing the resolutions and thereby further postponing the time ""when the committees are ready to report. "In my opinion," said Mayor iJahlman, "It will require about six months to com plete the investigation." He cited In stances In other cities where such Investi gation had extended ovnr several months.
