EBATE ON CUBAN RECIPROCITY
{ Teller Opposes Sugar Duty Cut Platt
L 'Makes Reply.
f Washington , Juno 28. Quito unox-
jSpeotcdly a sharp debate arose In the
Bonato yesterday on the question of
TDuban reciprocity. Teller ( Colo. ) , at
Avhoso Instance the scnato committee
'on ' Cuban relations mrulo its Investiga
tion of the subject , delivered a spir
ited speech In opposition to reciproc
ity with Cuba. Io charged that the
tontlre reciprocity propaganda had
pocn backed by the American Sugar
JIellnlng company and by Americana
Jsvho wore Interested financially In Cu-
jiban sugar plantations. The purpose ,
bio aald , was to strike down an Import
ant agricultural Industry of this coun
try. Ho was willing to join In a gen
eral revision of the tariff to moot
changed conditions , but unless the
.duties on iron and steel and other
Sroducta were reduced with these on
Sugar In order that the arrangement
plight bo equitable , the boot sugar
growers never would consent to a re-
'
eviction on their product.
r < i'lntt ( Conn. ) replied to the Colorado
rado senator. Ho maintained that
fthoro was nothing sordid In the desire
[ to promote reciprocal relations bo-
Awcen the United States and Cuba ,
End said the making of some conces
sions to Cuba was a plain duty of tills
jcountry. It was a duty this govern
ment owed to Itself as well as to Cuba ,
Because absolutely friendly relations
ylth the now republic , were a nocea-
3ary means of defense to this .country
inlcss the United States should annex
io Island. That , ho hoped , would not
Do done , as ho regarded annexation as
i grave menace to our institutions.

London , Juno 28.- "It's the besl

which the bulletin posted at Buck
ingham palace at 11 o'clock last nlghl
was greeted.A amnll crowd > waited
before the palace until tbo bulletin

After learning the .contends . of' tha
bulletin the crowd at the palac6'quick
ly dispersed and tho' rejoicing' which
was already apparent In'tn&-'croWdcd
strcota Increased withtho'terms ol
the latest rep6rt Tho'11 o'clock bul
Ictin was :
"His majwty's condition is in all
reapecta aatlafactory.- The king has
had a comfortable day and has made
substantial Improvement. "
The Prince and Princess of Walea
dined nt Buckingham palace In com
pany with aeveral other royal poraon-
ages. All the diners returned early to
their homes. t
The unanimity among prominent
physicians in expressing tholr opln
lena aa to the case of the king , la
BUCKINGHAM PALACE ,
quite remarkable. All the professional
opinions gathered are distinctly fa
vorable imd hopeful. The doctors re
gard the danger of perltyphlltls as
now almost past and believe his maj
esty's recovery to bo entirely prob
able . Liverpool was illuminated last
night In recognition of the good news ,
King Edward's calmness , cheerfulness -
ness and pluck are considered most
favorable auguries for a speedy recov-
cry , and the messages from Queen
Alexandra and Sir Francis Knollys ,
IHO King s pnvaio.secroiary , in expres
sions of gratitude and the expressions
of persons most familiar with the. sit
uation , all bear out the confident hope
fulness which prevailed today.
The prospect of the king's rapid rec
covory has led to a revival of the projij
octs for festivities. It has practically
been decided that the Indian and colo-
nlal troopa here shall bo reviewed
next Wednesday by the Prince and
Princess of Wales on the'Horse Guard
parade , Queen Alexandra attending to
take the salute on behalf of the king ,
as she did recently at Altlershot.
It Is not Improbable that the abandonment -
donment of the naval review , set for"
June 28 , will be reconsidered In the
Interest of the colonial and Indian
visitors , who are greatly disappointed
at missing this sight. Other enter-
talnmonts for the nation's colonial
and Indian guests are also being or-
ranged. Thus , if there is no setback
In his majesty's progress , there will
bo a partial revival of the Interrupted
festivities.
The Times this morning says :
"The king remains recumbent ; he
takes with comfort the nourishment
appropriate to li\a \ < condition 'and keeps
bright and cheerful In spite of the
Irksomeness of his enforced condi
tion. Some of his medical advisers
are always in attendance. There Is
happily good reason for hoping that
his majesty will make a complete end
speedy recovery. " '
METEOR FINISHES FIRST.
Emperor's Yacht Loses' Race , How
ever , on Time Allowance.
Kiel , June ) 28. Emperor Wllllam'a
American built schooner yacht Meteor ,
with the emperor himself on board
and steering most of the time , finished
seven minutes and twenty-two seconds
ends ahead of the Cicely in the large
schooner race- held here yesternday
In" connection with the regatta. The
Cicely Is owned by Cecil Quentln- -
England , and was designed by Fife.
Under her time allowance , however"
the Cicely claims the race by one min
ute and eleven seconds. The judges
have reserved their decision because
of a protest by M. Gullleaumo , the
owner of the Clara , which was also In
the race , who avers that the rules re
quired the Cicely to carry two an
chors at her bows , Instead of one.
The race will bo given to the Cicely
unless she la ruled out.

COMPARE . , , THE FIGURES7 ' ' , \
( ISSUED UNDER AUTHORITY'OF ' THE RAILROADS OF NEBRASKA ) 1
In the first artlcle'we published , vre called attention1
to the'fact that-all'railroad ' property , their earnings ; and
their operations1 were-reported periodically In sticH a1
shape thatany Information regarding1 their values or
operation was easily attained by an Irivestagator1 , and
that this feature worked a great injustice tothem Ih
matters of taxation , from the'fact 'that a prlvatc'cbrpor'
atioiiror a 'person , cau'refraln ' from returning his prdper-
ty f6r' ' taxes , and that under the Constitution and laws
of the state of Nebraska there was no way1 oi'making
him divulge.
§
We give below a table of some remarkable figures
in regard to this feature of the question , and will con
tinue to give some comparison between the amounts re
turned for taxation in 1900 and the amounts returned to
the cencus enumerator in the same year. In the matter
of live stock , the census returns-of iwhich are at hand
giving details , the following table may be interesting :
RETURNS FOR NEBRASKA.
Aisossora la Census Left eft

Horses. 636,993 863,939 226,944

Sheep 371,275 517,229 145,954
Hogs 1,752,163 4,221,094 2,468,9.11
When it is considered that the value of live stock for
1900 was reported at $6.79 for horses , 84.C6 for cattle ,
$7.41 for mules , $0.74 for sheep , and $0.99 for hogs , and
then take into consideration the fact that this great num
ber as showrr'aboye was omitted entirely from assess
ment , it makes a startling showing.
Were the animals assessed that had been omitted .
from the' assessment rolls in 1900 , It would have Iricrcui * '
cd'thA'assessment ' value of live stock by $8,116 , < J01.13 ,

Other'interests make no better showing. The fol

Credits other than brokers , etc . ' 537,99. !
Shares of capital stock of companies % .95,676
Manufacturers' tools , implements and machines. .258,307
It is confusing to see the amount of money , credits-
stocks , bonds , etc. , returned in the Bank Register and
other sources of information regarding banks and brokers
and try to connect them with the amount of wealth re-
'turned ' for taxation , and when it is found that the manu
facturers report $71,982,127 as being invested in their
business , with $23,2d 1,553 worth of machinery , tools and >
implements , it makes the sums returned for taxation
look ridiculous.
It Is 'evident ' that not one-third of the personel prop
erty in the state is returned at all for taxation , and that
fully one-quarter of the tangible visible property that
asscssorS'Could ' see and estimate in their returns is omitt
ed through carelessness.
If all the property of the state was Included in thsir
tax returns , Nebraska would show more than $161 per
capita for taxation which is the lowest of any/of-the' /
western or northern states.

New York , Juno 28. R. O. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says :
Foreign \markets were badly disar
. ranged by the sudden illness of the
king and there was much liquidation
prior to the closing of the exchanges
from Wednesday afternoon to Monday
morning. Trade Is well maintained ,
although low temperatures Interfered
with the distribution of midsummer
specialties. , Manufacturing operations
have . Increased In activity , especially
in , the iron and steel industry and tex
tile production , while the constructive
work on new buildings and bridges Is
very heavy. Labor difficulties have
not Improved in the coal region , but
numerous , settlements have been ef
fected elsewhere. Railway earnings
thus far reported for Juno exhibit an
Increase of 4.6 per cent over last year.
Agricultural prospects are far above
the average and rapid progress is
made with winter wheat harvesting.
Delays have been encountered from
heavy rain , whllo Injury has occurred

that no damage had i boon sustained

Employes of United States Steel
Company Get an Advance.
ADDS $4,000,000 TO THE PAYROLL
Advance of Ten Per Cent Applies to
Both Union and Nonunion Employes
of Steel Corporation Seventh Week
of Anthracite Miners' Strike.
Plttsburg , June 28. The largest
voluntary Increase ever known In the
wages of 100,000 men has been de
cided upon by the United States Steel
corporation. They will receive an ad
vance of 10 per cent , which will In
crease the annual pay roll of the steel
corporation by $4,000,000. The ad
vance applies to union as well as non
union men. Strictly speaking , the ad
vance applies to nontonnage men ol
every constituent company of 'the ' cor
poration This decision has just been
reached by the executive committee ol
the United States Steel corporation
after numerous conferences with the
highest officials of the underlying con
corns. The first men here to profit
by the increase were those of the
Carnegie company , who were already
working' on a private scale. The
next advance .will come to the em
ployes of the American Steel and Wire
plants. The adva'nce has' already gone
into effect in the Chicago' and Jollet
111. , plants.
In the Plttsburg 'district something
like'30.000 men > will be'entitled to the
increase. The wages of the blast
furnace workers and day men of the
Edgar Thompson and Homestead stee
workers and all furnaces operated by
the Carneglo Steel company wore ad
vanced without notice. Workmen
working under a private scale will be
debarred from this advance , as wel
as all coal miners , coke workers , rod
men and tube workers.
It la estimated that out of the tota
number of employes of the corpora
tion , one-third of them are paid on th
tonnage basis. It Is expected tha
the largest 'Independent stool and. iron
producers of the company will gran
their men a similar advance.
MORE MACHINISTS LET OUT.

Labor Situation.
Omaha , June 28. One hundred am
thirty-seven machlnlstf and helper
wore discharged by the Union Paclfl
from Its Omaha shops last evening
and abbut twenty-five from the shop
at Armstrong , Kan. One hour and
half before these men wore Informe
that they need not report for wor
this morning the company reach ?
amicable terms with Us car builders
with whom officials have been in conference
ferenco for five days. Scarcely ha
the car builders committee left th
private office of Superintendent Me
Koan , perfectly satisfied with the !
settlement , than the committee from
the machinists' union entered , was for
mally recoiye n.rsentfid Jt * grlevan
ces ana were told to call at the cfflce
: hls morning for a conference wltS

the company yields.
The company now seems to be'the
aggressor. Within the last week It
has discharged over 1,000 men from
various shops on Us system and still
maintains that It can continue the
operation of Us shops with the mini
mum force left.
SEVENTH WEEK OF STRIKE.
Both Sides Still Standing Firm Fully
165,000 Miners Idle.
Wllkesbarre , Pa. , June 28. Today
Will end the seventh week of the great
anthracite coal mine workers' strike.
Excepting President Mitchell's offer
to arbitrate there has been no propo
sition advanced by either of the parties
to the controversy since the strike
began and the prediction that the
struggle will bo one to a finish still
holds good. It is not unlikely that the
report of Labor Commissioner Wright
to President Roosevelt may suggest
some way that may lead to a settle
ment. The publication of the- report
Is eagerly awaited by the strikers.
Considering the great number of , men
who are Idle , the strike is a remarkably
ably quiet one. It Is estimated "that
fully-165.000 persons are out of work
In this section of the state.
