We aro threatened with a hotel build

hat never to their knowledge was there

multiply opportunities for association.

valuation of tho stato is, In round num
bers, 8171,000,000, as against $183,000,
000 in 1804, a fnlltng off of 812,000,000.
It is expected that tho amount realized
from stato assessments this year will
fall between 2000,000 and 81)00,000 less
than the legislative appropriation of
last winter, which were a total of $2,
765,000. This deficiency will, there
fore, be added to the outstanding float
ing indebtedness, which is now about'
5800,000. Tho school fund levy Is,
maximum, Hi mills; minimum, one
half of 1 mill. It is claimed that this
great shortage in state valuation arises
from an apparent competition between
taxpayers -s to who shall make tho

I'anaea to the State Fair.
For several years the Stato Fnh
board has been wrestling with ono
feature of tho pass question which has
caused It no end of trouble nnd nlso, it
Is estimated, a. loss of over 810.000 per
year in the matter of gato receipts. On
account of the change of location of the
fair this was considered a good year in
which to mako n reform and a radical
chunge has been mndu in the form of
tliu passes. During the last few years
all of the state fair associations, with
three or four exceptions, have discon
tinued the issuing of unlimited season
passes und have adopted tho coupon or
punch system. So that Nebraska in
udoptlng tho coupon system this year
is really somewhat behind tho times
The plan of issuing two kinds of
passes, a coupon pass and tho old style,
was discussed, but it was decided that
it would cause trouble and therefore
only ono kind is used. It has at
tached to it five coupons, each ono good
for ono admission to tho grounds. The
coupons are dated one for ench day of
the fair. Under this system the board
of managers hopes to break up n "com
bination" which has been imposing
upon it for several years.
Paroled Convict Disappear.
Warden Lcidlgh is looking into the
question of rewards for the return of
paroled convicts who have taken French
leave. At least ten of tho twenty-fivo
or thirty convicts out on parole aro
said to have fled tho stato and the war
den fears every ono will disappear in
the same way. Information from tho
governor's olHco is to the effect that a
majority of tho missing men skipped
out last summer beforo Warden I.cl
digli came into ofllcial existence, but
no ouu was aware of it until Warden
Lcidlgh began to devise some way to
get them back. Thero is a fund of
840,000 to pay otllcers' fees and sheriffs
for the return of fugitives from justice,
but it is a question whether such a
fund could bo drawn upon to pay re
wards for tho return of paroled con
victs. However, if the governor issues
reward proclamations, the auditor will
bo obliged to pay 8200 for each convict
Alfalfa in Itcd Willow County.
Several thousand acres wero sown to
ulfalfa in Red Willow county this
spring, nnd many thousand more will
be sown next. There are 40,000 acres
of bottom land in tho county, good
alfalfa land, nnd beforo many yenrs It
will bo in alfalfa. Last year was the
dryebt known there, and yet alfulfa,
was cut threo to four times und yielded
five or six tons per acie. Tho hay
found ready sale lust winter at 810 per
ton. Seed runs five to eight bushels
per acre, with some fields up to twelve
to fourteen bushels. A 200-ncre field
turned off 1,700 bushels of seed, worth
85 per bushel, 88,500i Tho hay und
pasturage was worth half as much,
making S12J750 for the crop on 200
ncres, which Is not bad for a dry year.
These crops wero grown without Irri
gation, and almost without r.iln. Some
fields have already been cut twice, and
tho yield was heavy. A field cut June
0 to 8 turned olf threo good loads to
tho acre. Tho second crop now, July
12, is threo feet high. Some sown lust
spring where land was clean has been
cut once for hay und the second crop Is
a foot high.

Portland, Ore., July 13. Govcrnor-
J. McConnell of Idaho. KnnnUlnn-
of the policy of tho silver Republlcana
noxt year, said: "Tho friends of silver
will not force tho financial issue in, the
national Republican convention next
year further than to secure a declara
tion in the platform that tho nominee
of that party shall sign any mcasuro
that passes congress that not only
affects tho financial system of tho
country, but nlso tho pensions of tho
soldiers of the rebellion, the building
of the Nlcaragunn canal, tho annexa
tion of the Hawaiian islands and other
issues of paramount interest to tho
country. Tho Individual who heada
the ticket is of little consequence to

protectionist. I don't caro what his
views on tho financial question are aa
long as ho Btands on tho platform of
tho party and that platform contains
tho declaration wo propose."
No Redemption In Gold.
Washington, July 16. For the first
rtme during recent years tho mall re
ports received at tho treasury j'ester

States notes in gold. All these re
ports, however, do not cover tho samo

during the last few months have aver
lged about $1,000,000 a month. Tho
fact has no particular significance but
tho treasury officials call attention to
it as a very unusual circumstance.
