LINCOLN, March M.-(Speclal.) Tho third day of the railroad rate hearing be fore the Stato Railroad commission de veloped a mass ot figures Intelligible only to those who were familiar with rate hearings and which were probably pre sented by tho carriers for the purpose of furnishing evidence to enable them to go before' the courts In case the commis sion cannot sec things their way and sticks to its modified schedule No. 19. As in the testimony given the day before the carriers attempted to show that cam- ! Ings of the roads havo not kept abreast with expenses. The Northwestern, Vnlon Pacific and Rurllngton had all taken a hand In showing that revenues of their roads did not warrant any lowering of freight rates, but It was up to the Rock Island through Its comptroller, Mr. May. to show that other roads were enjoying a picnic In comparison to what the Rock Island was compelled to stand. Mnj Hook laluiiil l.n.en. Last year the Rock Island, according to Mr. Nay, earned only a little more than one-half ot 1 per cent on Its valua tion. In 1912 the road operated In Ne braska .at a loss and at no time In tho past five years has the road had a greater earning capacity than one halt ot 1 per cent on Its valuation. Mr. Nay thought that instead ot cut ting down the earning ability of the road It should be given a raise. He was not particular whether tho reproduction value of tho road be UBed as tho basis for rate figuring and Interest return or tho pres ent worth. In either oaBe the figures would show that tho road was making notholng. Even on the depreciation valuo used In figuring the net return for 1912 the company actually came out with less cash than It expended on operation. Mr. Nuy presented the following figures for tho last flvo years, showing the percent age both on reproduction valuo and present value. Per cent on reproduction value. 1.31 9ti Per cent on present value. U7 .33 Def. .63 Rock 1W0 1910 .. 1911 1912 Def. 1913 56 The reproduction value of the Island In 19U secured by Uic commission on the Nebraska truckage of tho road and Its property was $11,474,336. Its pres ent or depreciated value Is given as 19,427,611. On this valuation the road earned In the last five years the follow ing: Nineteen hundred and nine, JloO.IOS; 1910, J110.000: 1911, ?3,990; 1912, a deficit of $673; m, $63,727. Mr. Nay admitted that the payroll of the road had Increased In the last six years more than $3,000,000, an average of something like $475,000 a year, A part of this had to bo borne by' the earnings ot the road In Nebraska. 'Mr. Nay then took the original order No. 19 and basing his figures on It showed that In March', 1913, the road lost In reve nue on Nebraska business alone $382, which would m.lko for tho twelve months on those figures a loss of $11,793. Snlury InerenacN. Incident to the raise in salaries and wages- to employes, Mr. Nay said that the raises in salaries had been as follows: General office clerks, 6 per cent; freight onglneers, 8 per cent; switching en gineers, 13 per cent; passnegcr firemen, 5 per cent; freight firemen, 9 per cent, switching firemen, 11 per cent; passenger conductors, 10 per cent; conductors, 10 per cent; passenger brakomcn, 10 per cent; freight brakemen, 10 per cent; ma chinists. 8 per cent; carpenters, 7 per cent; section foremen, 12 per cent; other trackmen, C per cent; telegraph operators, 11 per cent; all others, 2 per cent; watch men, 7 per cont. Mr. Buckingham, engaged In special rate work for the Union Pacific freight department spent a great deal of the day on the stand and made comparisons ot the cost of transportation of freight In Nebraska In comparison with other states, in each Instance showing that the proposed scale wus much higher than the Interstate Commerce scale. Another way In which ho showed that thero was not as good a chance for Nebraska roads to make anything as compared with other states was by a division of different states Into four zones In which the dens ity of population was given per square mile. The division made In Nebraska as the eastern, eastern middle, western mid dle and western zones and the other states were divided In the same manner: Neb. Kan. Minn. Ia. Mo. Kastcrjl 26.C 29.3 35.0 CO 65.0 Kastcrn middle. 10.8 19.8 32.7 29 27.8 "Western middle 2.78 F.&i 20.3 37 32.8 Western 2.31 3.89 13.7 34 06.2 Hnten Mnve Ileen Lowered, Showing a difference In rates as charged In 1S87 to different points with those charged at the present time, Mr. Bucking ham said that the figures were given to show that rates had been lowered con trary to the prevailing opinion that they had not. On fourth class freight from Omaha to Grand Island the charge In 1887 was 40 cents per hundred, while the present charge Is 30 cents. From Omaha to Kear- ney tho 1S87 chnrge was 6G cents on first class and 35 cents in 1914. From Omaha to McCoolc the reduction was 5 per cent, i to Hauler 8 per cent and to Broken How j M per cent. j Attorney Edson Rich of the Union Pa- I clflc gave a few figures which he said I it had cost the Union Pacific road to j meet the demands or laws tpade regu lating the railroads and the cost of get ting up material which It had been re quired to furnish In caves like the present.

This statement so far as I am concerned Is without authority from mo and 1 believe without authority from Governor Morchead.

Whether Mr. Thompson Is not In har mony with Mr. Sink or whether Mr. Sink Is not In harmony with Mr. Thompson, must bo gathered from tho above, as Mr. Thompson would neither deny or affirm whether the statement made by Mr. Sink to The Uco correspondent yes terday was coricct. ' While Mr. Thompson seems to believe that Mr. Sink hod no authority to talk Ifor Governor Morchead, the fact re mains that Air.

The intoxicating action of the small quantity of alcohol (in beer) is neutralized by the carbonic acid and the malt extract. Hops in small quantities stimulates the appetite and promotes evacuation, (or acts as a laxative.) Beer is very nutritious when consumed with meat, cheese and bread and it is greatly undervalued as promoting health and robustness, DR.
