auction ever made in the state levy
in the history of the state. The cap

same as fixed by law, at three
fourths of one mill.
In addition to providing for the
expenses of the state the new levy
will provide In advance for the ex
penses of the next session of the
legislature estimated at $190,000.
Many counties over the state have
decided to cut down their budgets
this year and in many cases their
levies can be reduced, so that tax
payers are not only promised a re
duction in the state levy but in local
levies as well.
The board equalized the assessed
values of counties and found the as

TO OLD RESI
DENT OF CITY
JONATHAN HATT PASSES AWAY
THIS AFTERNOON AT 2:20
AFTEK LONG ILLNESS.
From Friday's Dally.
This afternoon at 2:20 the life of
Captain Jonathan Hatt, one of the
oldest business men of the city, was
terminated when after an illness of
the past two weeks he was called to
his final reward.
The death came as the result of
the gradual breakdown of his health
and in the past two weeks his con
dition has been gradually growing
more serious until the last few days
when his death was apparently the
matter of only a few hours.
Jonathan Hatt was born December
12, 1848. near Leamington, Canada,
where his father, Anthony George
Hatt, had been a settler at an early
day, and the youth of Mr. Hatt was
largely spent on a farm in his na
tive province . until he reached his
sixteenth year when siezed with the
spirit of adventure, he shipped as a
sailor on one of the vessels plying
in the lake trade. He followed the
life of a sailor for several years and
was in the latter part of his career
a captain of a steam vessel on Lakes
Huron and Erie. He was later cap
tain of one of the large steamers on
Lake Michigan and remained in that
service until 1S83 when he came to
Nebraska where his father had lo
cated at Plattsmouth and here he
took charge of a meat .market that
had been fouled by his father, Mr.
Hatt and J. W. Mathias, buying the
interest of the elder Mr. Hatt and
continuing the business under the
firm name of Hatt & Mathias, and
they put up the building on Main
street that is still occupied by the
Mr. Hatt was married in Febru
ary. 1885, to Miss Elvira Sharping
at Milwaukee, Wis., and to this mar
riage four children were born, one
of whom a daughter, preceded him
in death and of this marriage there
survives three children, John V.
Hatt. Mrs. George South of this city
and Miss Verna Hatt of Shenandoah,
la. Mrs. Hatt passed away in Platts
mouth in 1893, and some three years
later Mr. Hatt was married to Miss
Emma Warfield, who with four child
ren of the second marriage, Paul,
Ralph. Sterling and Genevieve, are
all living at home and are left to
mourn the death of the departed.
One son, Edgar, died of the flu about
four years ago.
The deceased was of a quiet and
retiring nature and aside from his
business interests and family circle
mingled little in the affairs of his
fellowmen, and was a gentleman uni
versally esteemed by those who had
the privilege of knowing him.
Mr. Hatt was. socially, a mem
be rof the Knight & Ladies of Se
curity lodge of this city.
UEGE MORE IMPROVING
A number of the residents along
to 1 in favor of! wasnington avenue have been re
in that stanza,! marking on the fact that the tourist
park on that thoroughfare does not
seem to be as popular as it should
and among other reasons ascribes
it to the fact that the weeds there
are quite high and the fact that
..111. . -. a . a
i a vai-r ..yurani on ine parK
"i ij - utuin as 11 ts uu
scured in the weeds and this alone
has had a tendency to check the use
of the park by the travelers. Wheth
er or not the park is used very ex
tensively, the residents of that part
of the city feel that the weeds should
be kept down at least.

One of the old time wrestling
matches was held a few days ago at
the farm of C. C. Barnard, when a
number of the men working there
decided to try out their strength and
Charles Fulton and Marshall Law

match. The result of the match was
that Lawson secured two straight
falls and which were real ones too.

result of an infection of the throat,
caused from bad teeth, was taken
to the Nicholas Senn hospital in Om
aha by John Baurer, in his car, and

AT WEST POINT
Brigadier General J. H. Short Leaves
Tomorrow to Open up Camp
of Patriarchs Militant.
The annual cantonment of the
Patriarchs Militant of the Independ
ent Order of Odd Fellows of Ne
braska will be opened the first of the
week at West Point where the per
manent camp grounds are located
and the cantonment this year prom
ises to be one of the largest and most
successful in the history of the or
der. Brigadier General James H. Short
of this city, the department com
mander of the Patriarchs Militant,
will leave tomorrow for West Point
accompanied by Mrs. Short and Miss
Louise Short, and the general will at
once start in on making the camp a
very successful one. Mr. Short has
been one of the most earnest work
ers in this branch o.' the Oddfellow
ship and it was due largely to his
work that the camp was made the
annual event that it is now.
When the cantonment is organ
ized it will be operated strictly along
military lines and the various regi
ments "will be given a workout in
the military drills and other regular
army work that will be found very
beneficial to them in the work of pro
moting their organization.
It is expected that Major General
McSweeney of the state cf Iowa will
be present at the West Point camp
as well as represent,. ives from Mis
souri and other western canton
ments to look over the splendid Ne
braska branch of the order.
One of the features of the canton
ment will be the conferring of deco- I
rations on various leaders in Oddfel-
lowship and .the liebekahu of the
state and among these will be Mrs.
T. E. Olson of this city, past noble
grand of the Rebekah lodge here.
Mrs. Olson filled the position of no
ble grand for three terms and will
leave on Friday for West Toint to
have the Decoration of Chivalry con
ferred upon her.
The largest stalk of corn that has
been exhibited here this season can
be seen in front of Wescott's store
and measures some twelve feet in
height. The cornstalk is from the
farm of T. H. Pollock, located near
the pumping station of the water
company on the Missouri river bot
tom. The fact that the river this
year has not overflowed on the land
has resulted in a great corn crop all
over the bottom land and the yield
this year should help make up for
the previous wet seasons. Corn of
this size will make it necessary for
the pickers to bring their ladders if
they want to do business with the
tall Nebraska corn.

CORN CROP GIVES
PROMISE OF NEW
RECORD IN STATE
Burlington Report Shows It Came
Throngh Critical Period O.K.
-Big Wheat Yield.
Corn that premises to set a new
record, potatoes increased in acreage
and about to yield the biggest crop
in the history of the state, together
with a wheat harvest that shows a
better yield to the acre than antici
pated, combines to make the semi
monthly crop report of the Burling
ton covering the Nebraska district,
rosy with cptomism.
Superintendent Flyun's report,
gathered from statistics furnished by
station agents and official observers
over the whole district shows that
the corn came through the trying
period of the last two weeks in July
in splendid condition and that with
anything like ordinary weather dur
ing the month of August, the 1922
corn crop will nearly if not surely
set a new record for the state.
The ground is found to be in ex
cellent condition with only a few
spots in the district reporting any
lack of moisture. The general aver
age of corn in the four divisions is
nearly 102, with the Omaha division
rated at 102, Lincoln division 102,
Wyinore division 106 and McCook
division 97. The McCook division
shows a gain of 12 points in the
Ipst two weeks and the 'Lincoln di
vision a loss of 10 points in the same
time. Omaha division gained 2 and
Wymore division 9 during the two
weeks from July 15.
Plenty of Moisture
The report continues that the es
timates are considered conservative.
The corn, except that planted very
late, is in silk and tassel and the
most critical period of fertilization
is past. There is enough moisture
in the ground now to carry the corn
for fifteen days. The weather can
still make or break the crop, it is
said, but it will take exceptionally
hot weather with no rain to do much
The wheat harvest is reported as
rurprisingly good in yields from the
various divisions and the Burlington
believe that agents have been too
optomistic in estimating the crop.
The total yield is as good or better
than anticipated when it was cut,
but below the expectations held be
fore the hot weather in June. The
Omaha division reports an average
yield of 26 bushels, Lincoln division
19 bushels. Wymore division 22
bushels and McCook division 17
bushels. This shows a total aver
age of 21 bushels over the state,
which is thought to be much too
high, government experts figuring
the Nebraska average at 142 bush
els per acre.
Fall plowing is making good pro
gress. The soil is in good condition
for this work.
Grain shipments are heavy on
the Burlington lines, with four to
five hundred cars loaded in Nebras
ka daily. The high mark for the
season and one of the high marks
on the Burlington records was Fri
day of last week, when 509 cars of
grain were loaded on the Burlington
lines in the Nebraska district.
Oats, as stated in other reports,
is not making a good crop, the aver
age yield being about 55 to 60 per
cent of the normal. Potatoes, how
ever, are exceedingly promising,
with increased acreage and promise
of a tremendous yield. The expecta
tions are for a record breaking crop
Fruit Prospects Good
Fruit prospects continue good aid
the apple crop is to be the best in a
number of years according to present
indications. Sugar beets are doing
unusually well and promise an ex
ceptional crop. Pastures and mea
dows, considerably damaged during
June, have recovered to a very great
extent and were seldom in better
condition on the first of August
than they are this year. The tem
peratures varied in the state from
50 to 100 degrees during the two
Rainfall over the state for the 15
davs is reported as follows:
O'Neill, 3.00; Schuyler, 3.32; Ash

COMPLAIN OF BAD TURN
The jog In the "O" street high
way, two miles south of Elmwood,
at which point a number of acci
dents have occurred this season, is
attracting more or less unfavorable
criticism from the traveling public
who have driven over that" highway
and have had close calls from seri
ous accidents. Recently va party of
Nebraska City tourists drove off the
Jiridge at that portion of the road
and as a consequence a number were
hurt and this week a second acci
dent occurred there that has added
to the long list of injuries and dam
aged cars. This bad place in the Cass
county highway system should be
made more passable and less dan
gerous. We can furnish you blank books

FAILS TO IDENTIFY
MEWHORTER AS MAN
Wanted for Alleged Assault that Re
sulted in Death of Mrs. Geo.
Lutz at Louisville.
From Friday's Dally.
Yesterday Sheriff C. D. Quinton
and County Attorney A. G. Cole, were
in Lincoln where they took Romain
Maier of Louisville for the purpose
of determining if possible whether
the man Mewhorter, who was re
cently captured in Kansas, after his
escape from the state reformatory,
was the man suspected of having
committed the assault on Mrs. Geo.
Lutz of Louisville and administering
poison t&Njier from the effects of
which she later died.
Mr. Maier was taken over to the
penitentiary by Warden Fenton and
shown the various inmates and
among whom was Mewhorter, but
failed to Tdentify him as the man
he claimed to have seen at his ga
rage on the day previous to the at
tack on Mrs. Lutz.
This was the strongest clew that
the authorities had- as to the iden
tity of the man who could have com
mitted the crime and with the fail
ure of Mr. Maier to establish the
oennection of Mewhorter with the
assault the matter is still one of the
deepest mystery and the unraveling
of which will "probably never be pos
sible. At the time of his arrest In Kan
sas Mewhorter denied ever having
been in Louisville and the fact that
Mr. Maier was unable to identify him
makes his story look good.

"On the other hand, the demand
promises to get constantly better.
"The American farmer holda the
key to the situation. With the farm
