the facts, shall caused to be served
upon any person, company or cor
poration affected by such an as
sesrment. an order to show came
why such an assessment -shall not
be made. This will require quite
an extended hearing, inasmuch as
each individual case will necessarily
have to stand upon its own showing
to the extent that they are permit
ted to be exempt from taxation.
The tax commissioner and the
board are relying upon the provis
ions of the new constitution which
provides that "propert owned and
used exclusively for educational, re
ligious, charitable or cemeterial pur
poses, when such property is not
owned or used for financial gain or
profit to either the owner or user,
for exemption." Educational insti
tutions that have under the old con
stitution, been permitted to escape
taxation upon the theory that they
are educational, will be asked to
show to the board that they are not
!run for gain or "profit. This Is like
wise true of the hospitals and other
It is pot the intent of the board to,
In any way, seek to tax charitable or
ganizations, but the board feels that
i there has been a large abuse of this
privilege and the makers of the con
stitution discussed this very proposi
tion at length at the time they sub
mitted the proposal for the ratifica
tion of the people. It is contended by
the board that the constitution took
effect January 1, 1921. and that nil
legislative acts prior to that date are
abrogated by the new constitution
and'that inasmuch as the last legis
lature approved the making of all
exemptions in harmony with the con
stitution, then the constitution is to
be taken literally and is to be the
guide of the state board.
The large volume pf this class of
property is in the city of Omaha, but
there is a vast amount of such prop
erty scattered over the entire state
and the board feels that this is one
source of relief that may be extended
to the taxpayers inasmuch as it is
expected tht the valuation of this
property will reach into the, millions.
A full and complete hearing will
be granted to all concerned, but the
board feels obliged to make a thor
ough search for this. class of prop-'
erty and where the exemption , is
not Justified, to compel its being
listed for taxation.

ED BY A BAD
SMALL TWISTER FROM iWEST
DOES MORE OR LESS DAM
AGE TO LIVE STOCK
The storm lato yesterday after
noon and last night in the vicinity
of Avoca was quite severe and th
damage there will amount to sever
al hundred dollars as 'the storm
reached the extent of a. small sized
cyclone fcr sometime.
The wind was blowing at a very
high rate from the northwest and
caused a quite noticeable lot in
stock and property. The Mohr farm
west of Avcca suffered the loss of
four horses which were killed in the
field and other farmers were dam
aged in los-3 of live stock and blow
ing down of outbuildings and wind
mills. In the town of Avoca the damage
was notic3able but fortunately no
one was injured as far as could be
learned hero today. The Farmers'
elevator had, the roof removed by
the effect of the wind and the wind
ows in a number of the business
houses were blown in during the
fury cf the wind storm.
Anion,' the residences that suffer
ed more or less damage was that of
Elmer Ilallstrom but the family
were not injured in the least as a
message received here this after
noon states the telephone wires were
blown Jown during the storm and
the only moans of communicatiar
was through the telegraph lines to
the east. Considering the fury of the
storm the residents of Avoca are
feeling themselves very fortunate in
secaping as easily a9 they did.
Eagle and Elmwood were also is
olated by the wind, from telephone
communication as the wind storm
traveled easterly from Lincoln ane
made a detour through the westerr
and south rortion of Cass county.
The damage at Eagle was largely
confined to the lumber yard and the
hardware stcre. and at the store the
building was unroofed by the force
of the wind and the lumter storec'
in the yard? at the lumber yard wa;
scattered ;er a considerable area.
Reports received here this after
neon from the vicinity of Union stat
that the storm was not severe ir
town but that' the farm of U.L. Han
sen, south of that place sufferer"
heavily, every building on the place
with the exception of the residence
itself, being swept away. No one wai
injured in the storm, however.
The general appearance of thf
sky was verj threatening during th
afternoon yesterday ond for a time
it was feared at Lincoln that thr
city was to be visited by a most ter

AUTO STEALING CON
SPIRATORS IN BAD
Fake Theft of Cars to Collect In
surance Revealed in Unearth
ing of the "Plant."
The efforts of the Omaha police
force in the last week have resulted
In revealing the existence of a ring
that had as its object the stealing o
automobiles and the collection of the
insurance on the cars. The general
plan of the gang seems to have beei:
to get in touch with the auto ownei
and by his consent take the Insured
car, remove it to Omaha, destroy the
signs of identification and then later
to disoose of the car while the own
er made the collection of the. insur
ance from the company that had
taken the risk on the car.
This condition of affairs has con
tinued for some time and was re
vealed on last Saturday night when
the Omaha police by a "plant" of a
supposed stolen car secured the ar
rest of a number of the members or
In their various operations, it ap
pears the organization has involved
some of the residents of near Avoca.
and while the crime, if any there
was, occurred In Douglas county,
one of the cars in the case has come
from this county.
It seems from the facts secured,
that the owner of the car and the
gang of Omaha robbers met in that
city and arranged the details of the
conspiracy and the Cass county man
returned home and left his car where
it would be easy to "steal" and show
ed the foresight to take the good top
off the car and substitute an old one
so he would be that much further
ahead on the proposition.
Everything worked lovely and had
It not been for the arrests made in
