Dear Sir: Will you allow me,
through your paper, to ask a few
questions that many others besides
myself, would like to have answered.
We have been paying our real estate
taxes and listing our personal pro
perty, and consequently, feel as if we
had been burglarized.
1. Who are the particular Phar
aohs who are responsible for this ex
cessive taxation and to whom can
one apply to for relief or remedy?
Can the state, count- or city.

ple of the means of existence, and is
there a fund being raised lor the en
largement of poor houses so that the
widows, orphans and others o de
prived, may find a refuge, as there
will certainly be a great exodus to
Is this taxation anyway, or
just plain extortion?
I. Of what advantage is it to ex
pend money on universities, schools.

books, pictures and engravings rnu.it

T. Are clothes and shoes necessi
ties or luxuries, and are we not taxed
enough for them, when bought, with
out an auued tax when worn out?
G. If we must pay tax on kitchen
utensils, would our legislative body
kindly .show us an appetizing way to
serve our food raw?
7. Is it consistent to evince such
h rror of I'zarism in other countries
and practice it in our own?
S. fan it be possible that we are
so busy dusting the door steps of

Jewels Belonging: to ITe-hawka K. of
P. Lodge Are Unearthed Behind
If it's in the book line, call at
the Journal office.
From Thursday's Pally.
Yesterday afternoon I). StcIYcns,
keeper of records and seals of the
Xehawka Knights of Pythias lodge,
was in the city in company with
Ilenning Johnson of that place-and
the two gentlemen recovered the le-
mainder of the lodge jewels which
had been missing since the robbery
of the desk of the keeper of records
in the lodge room on April 20th.
The young man who had a hand
in the affair in pulling off the rob
bery had come to this city shortly
after the robbery and while here vis
ited the soft drink parlor of Kd Do
not and engaged William Weber,
who was in charge at the time in
conversation and offered to sell him
si number of stamps which would to
tal near ninety cents for si half
dollar. He also offered Mr. Weber
a number of K. of P. jewels "which
he wanted to sell and his jnissession
of these led Mr. Weber to suspect
that all was not sis it should be and
he refused the offer. The man then
left the place and nothing more was
heard of the matter until the return
of the young man to Xehawka when
he was questioned and a part at least
of the facts in the case unearthed by
the lodge officers. It seems that the
young man- had also offered for "sale
to one of the Xehawka members of
the order who happened to be in. this
city the jewels, and on his reutrn
home the robbery w;u discovered
and th-? pirty pulling it off was .giv
en the once over. Tie was finally in
duced to tell what he had done with
t!n missing jewels and he stated lie
had left them hidden behind a pile of
emptv cases near the building occu
pied by Mr. Donat. A search yes
terday disclosed the jewels reposing
back of the near beer cases on the
east side of the building of Mr. Do
nat. where the youthful robber had
hidden them. Mr. Stcffens departed
for home vi!h the jewels and the
lodge is saved the expenditure of the
amount that the new set would cost
Owing to t lie youth of the man and
the fact that the only loss lias been
ninety-four cents in stamps there
will bo no prosecution against him
by the lodge oflicers and in this he
can feel very grateful as it has saved
him a trip to the state reformatory.
Attorney C. K. Tefft of Weeping
Ws'.ter, was in the city for a few
hours yesterday afternoon hooking
after some matters of business in
the county court.
W. II. Shoemaker, wife and Mbi
Edith Tiieile motored up this morn
ing from Xehawka ami while Mr.
Shoemaker spent the day here vis
iting with iiis friends and looking sit
ter business matters, Mrs. Shoe
maker and Miss Thiele spent a lev
hours in Omaha.
