Candidates Coming
Out in Plenty
(From a Staff Correspondent)
UNCOLiN. Neb., June 6.-(8peclal.)
IBenator John Heasty of Falrbury was at
the state house yesterday, having just
returned from a trip to Kansas. Senator
Heasty has been frequently mentioned
In connection with the nomination for
governor, on the. republican ticket, but
no one has ever been able to discover
(Whether the gentleman really has a long
ing to fill the position or not.
He has also been accused of casting.
Bonglng eyes In the direction of the at
torney general's office since the pros
pects are good that there may be some
thing in It for the future beside board
and clothes for tho Incumbent. In this,
however, the Falrbury statesman may
find .opposition, as it Is generally under
Dtood that If Grant Martin thinks he has
had enough that either his deputy, Mr.
Ayers, . or his assistant, Mr. Edgerton.
will throw their hats into the ring.
There are now several "mentioned"
candidates for that republican nomination
for governor. Everybody but himself
acknowledges that Lieutenant Governor
IMcKelvle wants to try for, the goal, and
since he won glory at a colored picnic
lately as Judge of a baby show the col
ored brethren are all for him, and vthat
means a nreat deal. '
President of the"8enate J. H. Kemp ot
IFullerton looks mighty good to some peo
ple as the man to lead the forces back
to victory In Nebraska. Kemp made &
good record in the senate last winter and
showed good timber for the governor
chip. Then It must not be forgotten that there
was one republican at least over In the
house who gave indications of leadership,
Representative James Nichols of Madl
eon. Nichols, though on the minority
side in that chaotic body, never got up
to speak but what everybody listened
to what he had to say, which Is more
than could be said ot anyone on the mv
Jority side.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, June 6. (Special.) If Rail
way Commissioner Thomas L. Hall has
his way there will be no development ot
public utilities in Nebraska In the fu
ture on the bond proposition unless the
Issue of bonds covers the actual ex
penditure and the estimates made by
the commission's own experts may not
be considered as reliable.
Such at least was his position this
morning when Sanford B. Ladd, rep
resenting the Northern Construction
company, appeared before the railway
commission tils morning to discover
what the commission proposed to do re
garding the Issue ot 13,100.000 In stocks
and bonds to the Omaha, Lincoln and
Beatrice lnterurban railway for the con
struction of its line from Lincoln to
Mr. Ladd asked the commission to
submit Its proposition ot what would
be required ot the construction com
pany which had agreed to take over the
bond Issue, of the lnterurban company
In payment fur constructing the road,
and was told that the commission, should
It finally grant the issue, would require
that as soon as the road was completed
the company should deposit $75,000 in
cash to guarantee that the road would
have sufficient backing to Insure Its
maintenance for some time to come.
This was satisfactory to Mr. Ladd.
He said that the Northern Construction
company expected to do the square thing
with the people of Nebraska. "We are
coming Into the state as a domestic
corporation," said Mr. Ladd, "and we
have no desire whatever to ask more
than we are entitled to under the laws of
your state."
llnnds to Cover Cost.
Mr. Hall, of the commission, developed
the fact that he was opposed to the
bonds until after the road had been
built and theh the bonds should be is
sued to cover actual cost of building.
He rather questioned the figures intro
duced by Mr. Gerber. physical engineer
and expert of the 6ommission, and his
ability to estimate tho cost of railway
construction end asked him where he
ever had any experience along that line.
Mr. Gerber was for nine years an ex
Pert In the employ of the Union Pacific
railway and his business was to make
estimates on grading and construction In
the building of railway lines, and he
thought that he knew something about
building railways. He exhibited figures
and explained at some length, seemingly
to the satisfaction of everybody present
but Mr. Hall, why such and such work
would cost a certain per cent of the con
struction expense. He placed the grading
on the Omaha, Lincoln & Beatrice at 24
cents per cubic yard on an average.
He said that from Lincoln to Ashland
the, grading cost would be much less, but
that as soon as the river was crossed at
that place the roughness of the country
wouia run the cost up a great deal higher.
It will take forty-seven waiting stations
to coat $50 each, the same number of
waiting platforms to cost $15 each and
six station buildings at a cost of not less
than $1,200 each and might run higher,
according to the grade of railway built
Gerber Questioned Closely.
Mr. Hall seemed rather to doubt the
ability even of Mr. Gerber to Judge the
percentage of cost of legal advice, etc.,
that would be needed, and while he said
that he had been In close touch with
that part of the game while with the
Union Pacific construction department,
the commissioner did not seem to be
satisfied and spent about a"n hour trying
to catch Mr. Gerber in some kind of a
statement which would tend to show that
he did not know what he was talking
about However, Mr. Gerber seemed to
know the construction' business so thor
oughly that he came out of the ordeal
so sufficiently clear that he was able to
go home and eat a square meal.
The bone which seemed to stick In the
throat of Commissioner Hall was the
right of the commission to authorize a
sale of stock and bonds for more than
the construction cost He did not want
the bonds issued until after the road was
built and also demanded to know It the
Lincoln Traction company, the Omaha,
Lincoln & Beatrice company and the
Northern Construction company were to
gether in the deal, ond Insisted that Mr.
Ladd should give the names of all the
officials of the construction company.
Company Affiliations.
Mr, Ladd seemed willing to do so, but
said he had no roster of the company
officials with him, but gavet he names of
some of the prominent officials.
"The Lincoln Traction' company has no
connection with either the lnterurban or
the Northern oCnstructlon company as
far as the building ot the road is con
cerned," said Mr. Ladd in a very em
phatic manner.
He asked Mr. Hall how he expected the
company to go ahead and buy rails, ties
and other equipment to build the road if
they did not have the moriey or any as
surance that the bonds would be Issued
before the work began.
"When the road is completed," said he,
"there will be a complete showing before
this commission and the people ot Ne
braska, giving in detail the complete
cost of building the road. There will be

wishes ot the commission Rnd put enough
cash up when the road Is completed to
guarantee Its running expenses for a con
siderable time. We want to make this
road a model road and all we ask Is a
fair chance to make the trial."
The result of tho hearing may not be
gtven out for several days, though from
the developments In the hearing today
It would seem that a majority ot the
commission desires to see lnterurban de

take this opportunity to make the test
