rrss of 2"0 loct of Tl(rht-of-av. the bill
lifin Killed by prartially a two to ono
ntf. The bill mrt l(a Waterloo at the
rlose of a debate lasting an hour and
a half. The roll rail nn.lt lndrfinlt
postponomrnt resulted SR to HI,
l.nnlcin quoted court derision of Ne
braska and I'nltnd States holding that
the l'nlon Pacific al entitled to a 4"
foot right-of-way and that It rannot deed
anv of thla land away. . Mr. Lanlan as
serted that many of the farmer! nlon
the Union Pacific who have received
quit claim cleeda for everything except
2 feet are not now helnn disturbed In
thrlr possession, but that If the bill
should paea the Union Taclflc in defens
of ita Interests would be compelled to
tafce back from three farmer the land
Included In the fuir(-foot atrip.
Tallin Land from Rim.
It wu ahown by the member from
Greeley that If the bill would have th
effert Intended hjr Ita Introduce? It would
be deprlvinir Uie Union Pacific without
compensation of twenty-four acres to
every alternate mile of track or a total
of 4,1 acrea In the atate.
Mr. Taylor, who aealated Oeterman In
the flcfcnee of the bill contended that the
Union Pacific would not be compelled to
rive up anything, but would almply be
deprived the r'rtit of condemnation If it
should continue to hold the land. Mr
Palmer repl Inu to thla argument, called
the plan a subterfuge and aald that even
the railroad is entitled to fair treatment,
lie considered that this would be taking
Its property without due process of law
and therefore contrary to the constitu.
tlntu
Mr. Scudder of, Hi.il county said the
Mil, would do either- one of two thing,
namely, force the Union Pacific to sur
render everything over 200 feet wide or
force it to buy an Additional, WO feet In
alternate aectlona In order to hold what
it now haa.

WILSON DISLIKES
ORDER IN COUNCIL
British Ban on Neutral Trade Will
Provoke Strong Protest from
United States.
WILL AFFECT COTTON MOST
BI I.I.F.TIV
WASHINGTON, March 16 Chev
iliar Van. Rappard," Netherlands min
ister, Informally opened negotiations
at the State department today to de
termine what action may be taken
by the United Slates and the Neth
erlands to obtain an aineloriatlon of
the . restrictions laid down in the
British order In council.
WASHINGTON, March 16 Pres
ident Wilson indicated today that
the unofficial outline of the British
order In council shutting off trad
ing with Germany was very displeas
ing to the United States government.
He declined, however, to enter Into
a discussion of the order with call
ers because he had not had
opportunity to go over the official
text. Discussion among other offi
cials, however, was taken to Indi
cate that the government would
make to Great Britain and Its allies
a protest more vigorous than any of
tbe most hitherto sent.
In some official quarters it was thought
this protest might take the form ot In
sistence on a compliance with interna
tional law. Officials at the State depart
ment who have atudled the British order
'ay it raises new and embarrassing com
plications for neutral commerce to which
it never before haa been subjected In
maritime war. Diplomatist declared that
the next note from the United States
would require eome positive terms.
Hits afral Trade Hard.
Interference with trade between this
country and neutrals, suggested in the
order Is giving officials here most con
cern, for as they read the British order,
commerce to those countries which have
not placed export embargoes on contra
band articles practically will be held up.
The United States contends there Is no
warrant for such interruption unless legal
proof exists at the time of the dentention
proving beyond doubt that the goods are
destined to a belligerent.
Cotton shipments would suffer partic
ularly under the order and cotton grow
ers are preparing, through their repre
sentatives here, to Insist upon a strong
declaration from the government on the
subject.
With reference to the holding up of
neutral commerce, the burden of proof,
the United States contends, should b on
the belligerent, whereas Great Britain
has transferred It to the neutral shipper.
Aaatrla la Not Named.
Officials were much Interested to know
whether the terms of the British order
would be enforced against Austria and
Turkey, because Germany's allies were
not mentioned In It. The Austro-Ilun-garlan
emhaeay here has repeatedly noti
fied th Department of Commerce, which
has In turn notified shippers that car
goea of cotton could be ahipped Without
difficulty to Trieste. If that avenue of
communication Is rcn for non-contraband
goods their shipment by rail
through Austria to Germany would, In
the view of officials, alleviate the situa
tion considerably.
The offilcal text of the British order
arrived during the day and State depart
ment officials began a study of 1U terms.
WILL CONTINUE HORSE
RACING IN ENGLAND
' LONDON, March 1. The Jockey cluh

THE HOME PAPEli
is now being used by
hundreds of families
upon hard coal.
They have learned
that there is no fuel
so thoroughly adapt
ed for general domes
tic use.
They will be regu
lar customers here
afterbecause they have
f ou nd a cleaner, more
reliable fuel than any
they. have used here-r
tofore a fuel that has
abolished the smoke
nuisance and made
sifting of asjies unnec
essary a fuel that
saves one-fifth of their
former fuel cost.
Now is the time to give
VULCAN COKE a trial,
Your coal supply is get
ting; low and you need a
little fuel to last out the
season.
Try a ton or so of
VULCANTyou will find
that the claims we make
for it in our advertising
are more than borne out
by its actual usethat it
is indeed 'The Perfect
Fuel."
