Tho railroads are making tholr
customary protest before tho Stato
Board of Asaoumont, alleging that
their valuations for" taxation arc too
high as compared with other prop
erty. Tho representatives of tho rail
roads must be having a hard tlmo
to keop a straight faco whllo present
ing this plea. The State Railway
commission has been making a phy
sical valuation of railroad, proporty
in Nebraska, and as far as It has
gono its figures are higher for tho
physical property alone, without the
franchise, than aro tho assessed
values of tho roads. But moro than
this, tho value of the physical prop

Is considerably less In each case than
tho figures at which tho railroads

To a man up a tree it would look
as if the railroad protest against the
tax assessment were simply a moro
to offset and divert attention from
tho physical valuation appraisement.
Republican Reorganization.
That there will bo somo tangible
steps taken toward republican reor
ganisation along national lines has
been plainly manifest ever since tho
last presidential campaign, It is
natural and inevitable that some
thing should ba done to remove some
of the causes of dissatisfaction re
sponsible for defeat, and more par
ticularly to prevent recurrence by
making it certain that tho next
standard bearer may have an un
Questioned title to his nomination.
The consensus of opinion seems
to be that the most feasible way to
bring this about Is to hold an inter
mediate convention to change the ap
portionment) of delegates. By such
change, representation lit tho subse-
auent nominating convention would
ba made to conform moro closely to
tha nartr strength In the respective
states and congressional districts,
and tho outcry against overweighted
southern delegations stopped.
