ONE OF MANY EVASIONS.
J. A. DeWotf of Tlldon Has Aassoss-
mont Raised by Commissioners.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
Very freqnontly the laws governing n
state are merely dead letters because no
one chooses to prosecute under them
though they bo frequently violated.
This has been particularly true of the
law governing assessments and taxa
tions , and those who are most ( scrupu
lously honest in other transactions
think nothing of beating the state and
county and government oat of that
"which is Caesar's , " and swearing to
ratings which they hope are true in that
particular instance , bat are afraid they
are not , and their conscience accuses
them of verging closely on falsification ,
If not perjury.
A striking Instance of this kind is
shown In the proceedings of the county
commissioners , regarding a wealthy res
ident of Jefferson precinct , Mr. J. A. .
Do Wolf. An aflldavit having boon filed
by Mr. A. J. Duulovy of the same pro
duct that Mr. Do Wolf was evading the
payment of taxes on personal property
in the amount of $17,500 , and Mr.
Do Wolf having been notified to appear
and falling to do so , his property was
raised $2,500 by the board.
Now Mr. Do Wolf is a good man and
on all religious and moral questions
takes a firm stand for what ho deems to
be right. He Is the kind of a man who
has the confidence of his neighbors and
friends and weald as soon think of violating
lating it as ho would of breaking one of
the ten commandments , yet there is the
evidence that he thought nothing of
evading his just share of taxation in
snpportof the government under which
he lives. It is a general custom and
perhaps usage makes it right , anyway
it would be unfair that , because per
sonal differences have resulted in the
disclosure in Mr. DoWolf's OASO , ho
should be considered worse than hun
dreds and thousands of others who tire
inspired by the same motive and do as
badly as ho toward the government.
The point to be emphasized is that the
law has not been perfect , that it is un
fair and under it few par their equal
proportion of the taxes , and that it
makes perjurers of many. What is
needed , and ic is to be hoped it has been
secured through the late legislature , is
a law that will need no evasion , or can
not be evaded if it is desired to do so.
Then the person who owns much or
little property will be compelled to pay
his proportion of taxes and there will bo
hardship worked on none.
NOODLE HAS A NEW COLLAR ,
That's Why He Happens to be Alive ,
and not Shot dead.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
"Noodle" Is wearing a brand new
collar , which shines and glitters in the
sunlight , and which makes Noodle walk
on the atmosphere , only , in his state of
ecstatic pride. Noodle is the mascot at
the Krautz livery stables , and inci-
dently belongs to the canine world. So
for ho has escaped poison and now he is
trying to ward off any bullets that
might be coming his way from the dog
man's revolver , by wearing a brass tag
upon the collar. Noodle is like a good
many other dogs in town just now , and
ho feels sorry for the ones that didn't
dress up like he has , before they were
LENZER TRIED BEFORE JURY ,
Accused of Stabbing Henry Arends
With a Pitchfork.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
Julius Lonzer , who is claimed to have
stabbed bis employe , Henry Arends ,
with a pitchfork , was tried this after
noon in Justice Eiseloy's court , before a
jury. The jury was called at Aronds'
request. Both men had bad looking
arms , although , according to some
phases of the testimony , neither one
struck the other. Each man seems to
have gained his scars from self defense.
Jack Koenigstoln is defending and
County Attorney Mapes prosecuting.
When Masons Disagree.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
Considerable grief bus been felt , it is
said , among members of the Masonic
fraternity , over the fact that two of
their members should have so zealously
entered the Chlckeriug piano contest.
M. D. Tyler and J. 0. Stitt are in it.
Stitt has twice as many vet s as Tyler ,
yet Tyler lacks but one of tying the
count. Members of the lodge f eel that
the course , if persisted in , must be det
rimental to the Eastern Star. It is
given out unofficially thut Mr. Stitt will
withdraw from the contest and throw
his strength to Boulah chapter , pro
vided Mr. Tyler will do the same.
W , H. Bucholz of This City ,
Spoke About Money.
SUGGESTS ELASTIC CURRENCY.
Delivered the Paper Before Iowa
Bankers In Sioux City Ono of the
Most Masterly of the Program.
Substance of the Article.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
The Sioux City Tribune of luMt evening -
ing printed the following concerning
tbo paper given by W. H. Buoholss of
tills place , before the Northwestern
Bankers association yesterday :
"Tho address by W. II. Buoholz , pres
ident of the Norfolk National bank of
Norfolk , upon the topic , "Country
Bankers' Interest In Currency Haforui , "
proved QUO of the most masterly of the
mooting. Mr. Buoholz delivered tills
paper at the Northwestern Nebraska
Bankers' mooting at Ponder April 22.
It was hoard by W. P. Mauloy of this
city , and when Mr. Manloy was placed
on the program committee for this
mooting ho insisted on Mr. Bnoholz
again reading the paper. Mr. Bucholz
made a particular suggestion for nn em
ergency currency , which is timely bo-
canso of the advocacy by Secretary
Shaw of an asset currency. Ho would
have the banks in reserve cities deposit
bonds and first class securities upon
which they may issue supplemental
currency , to bo taxed by the government
and payment guaranteed by the govern
ment. The tax being graduated on the
time the notes remain outstanding , the
money would bo high and the high in
terest charge would operate to urge
liquidation as speedily as possible.
Mr. Buoholz said in part :
Various reasons have been assigned
for reform. It is said that the gold
standard should bo still more firmly es
tablished ; that there should bo no possi
bility of an "endless chafn" to drain the
treasury of its gold In st > iiigout times
and cause distrust and apprehension to
increase ; that o..r present money uud
circulating medium ia too varied and
should bo made moro uniform ; that our
system is not elastic and that there is
not enough of currency at times to move
the crops raised in the west , not enough
to absorb all of the securities raised in
the east. It Is also urged by some that
the government should confine itself to
its function of certifying to the value of
the precious metals used OH money by
the act of coinage , and to the issuauco
of treasury notes based on deposits of
gold and silver and that the greenback
should bo retired from circulation.
We do not seem to have any difilonlty
with our monetary system during per
iods of national prosperity. When rev
enues received exceed the expenditures
by a safe margin and good faith as to
the standard of money is unquestioned ,
confidence is freely given. Confidence
is the basis of credit , and , when con
servative methods prevail and true val
ues are the basis of securities , credit
takes the place and augments the power
of money to such an extent that money
itself finds no real use save as a balance ,
a measure , and in the liquidation of
Bankers are the custodians of credit
as well as money , and since credit , when
properly established , maintained and di
rected , has so largo a share in promot
ing the business welfare of this country ,
and since credit , when improperly ex
tended and unduly expanded , is so pot
ent a factor in precipitating panic , it is
astonishing that we do not have more
discussion of credit reform and less of
It is shown by the treasury reports
that during the past five years there has
boon an increase of nearly 40 per cent ,
of the circulating medium in this coun
try. Over | 000,000,000 have been added
to our currency supply in that period
an increase of about 97.50 per capita , tea
a present per caplU of $30 ; or a total
circulating medium in round numbers
of $3,400,000OOO.Thls is more circulating
medium per capita than has any other
of the great commercial nations of the
world , with the exception of France.
Any sort of safe currency must have a
limit on its quantityor it will no longer
be safe. Wo cannot go on expanding
indefinitely. So may it not be wise to
tarry awhile at our present level to as
certain whether our "digestion" is equal
to the strain that has been put upon it ?
The bankers of our reserve cities know
the volume of our present currency.
They can estimate its capacity and
should apply the remedy when they are
asked to assist in an undue inflation ol
credits. They know that the north and
the south and the west will at certain
seasons require thg use of some of their
reserve deposits , and they should pre
pare for such legitimate demands , in or-
ulnary times , without the necessity of
any emergency circulation or elastic
issues. They should not regard the
country bankers' excess deposits with
them as fixed capital , to bo left forever
I believe that a largo measure of the
prosperity of this country has como to
it because of its independent banking
system. It is most important to the
welfare of this country that its young
men should have the benefit of the
assistance the independent bank affords
in order that the progress and develop
ment of this great nation shall go on ;
that small beginners be aided and op
portunities for the healthy ambition
and energy of American genius bo en
Asset currency presents some attract
ive ft aturoB , and if it could bo properly
safeguarded it might become , in many
respects , a superior business medium to
our present currency. To perpetuate
the national debt solely to provide a
security for currency issues cannot bo
defended , and , with a limited national
debt or none at all , a now system would
have to be devised to provide adequate
currency supply. To niy mind , however -
over , the theory of asset currency hardly
| comports with our free banking system.

A country bank today , when it finds

OIIIIH , or , if that bo impossible or in
expedient , it uiny rediscount a portion
of ltn paper with Itn correspondent.
The banks in tbo smaller reserve cities ,

It is in such an emergency that an
elastic currency , or rather some method
of extraordinary temporary expansion
of credit , would bo the moans of saving
lintroBH and of averting possible ruin.
Would not in such canes the issue of an
imorgonoy circulation by clearing

The banks in reserve oition could de

MONEY FOR FIRST HURT ,
' u- _ ,
The Accidents on Government Build
ing are Matter of Chanco.
[ From Saturday's Dally. )
The first workman to be injured at
the government building will bo re
lieved by the nso of a purse of money
that lies in the oflico , and which was
contributed by members of the Masonic
fraternity at the corner stone core-
monies. The amount is nearly $50. If
this building goes up with the good for
tune that has characterized other struc
tures erected by Superintendent Wil
liams , there will bo llttlo need of the
sum. Never has a workman boon laid
up for moro than twenty-four hours ,
under his charge , since the superintend
ent has boon in the business.
"It is a good deal a matter of chance , "
said Mr. Fain , in speaking of the acci
dent proposition. "I saw one man fall
forty foot and light in a heap of iron.
It looked like ho was a dead ono for
fair , but throe weeks' time put him
back. Another man fell six foot , off
the same building , and never got up. It
may bo predestination. "
WANTED JOJE JAILED ,
L. Bragden Was Drunk and Asked the
Police to Arrest Him.
[ From Monday's Dally. ]
With a pair of eyes that looked like
they had boon up against the real thing ,
and a jag that made him insane , L.
Bragdou , a man from Noligh , walked
into the police'station Saturday after
noon at 5 o'clock and asked to bo put in
jail. He was put. This morning , after
he had had two nights and a day in
which to get rid of his intoxication , the
stranger was taken before Judge Hayes
and fined $8 10 for his good time. When
Bragden came to headquarters , he
claimed ho had been robbed in a gam
bling game. When ho woke up from
his fantastio dream ho cancelled the
story , admitted that he hadn't had
enough money to bo robbed of and that
his black eye came from a jolt of the
bar tender's fist. This is the second
time ho lias come to the coppers and re
quested that he bo chucked behind the
THE GOOD OLD SUMMER TIME ,
Is Scheduled to Arrive About Next
Monday Morning at 4.
[ From Saturday's Dally. ]
On Monday morning at 4 0'clock , the
sun roaches the furthest point north ,
crosses over from spring time into sum
mer and covers this part of the world
with more of Us warming daylight than
it ever has during the past year , or will
again before another twelvemonth. At
exactly that hour the season will be on
it will be summer for fair , and no
mistake. Just at that day the spring
hats will bo oat of style , the vacation
girl will bo quite the thing and the
smile on Nature's face will bo a bit
broader than it had been on the Sunday
afternoon boforo. Thou , and not until
then , it will bo the "good old summer
time when she holds your hand and you
hold hers" if you believe in signs.
