BIG MEN ILL MEET:
WILL BE MUCH DISCUSSION
Expected to 'Overshadow All Other
Gatherings, Rivaling Adoption of
Washington History will be made
at this week's white bouse conference
on natural resources, unless all signs
fail. For history making the condi
tion's are remarkably favorable. Never
before has a president of the United
States conferred with all the gov
ernors of the states. Never before has
the white house, with its long record
of social and state functions, sheltered
a large convention called for the con
sideration of a great public issue. And
never before has the whole broad
question of the conservation of this
country's natural resources been
brought before a great deliberative
body as the sole subject of its con
sideration. The reception accorded this project
indicates that the people of the coun
try expect definite results of a far
reaching character. But no cut-and-dried
program will be presented for
the consideration of the governors and
delegates. After hearing from experts
the condition which the country is fac
ing the members of the conference
will themselves decide whether any
thing ought to be dene, and what.
Some have "suggested the advisability
of forming a great national organiza
tion to carry forward the plans ori
ginated in the conference. The prob
ability is that at the least some basis
will be laid for future co-operation be-j
tween the federal and state Sgovern
ments in a vigorous policy of con
servation, for one of the' things which
will be shown most forcibly at the
conference is that neither the states
nor the federal government can make
satisfactory headway independently.
The present situation is much the
same as was faced just before the
adoption of the federal constitution,
and the more enthusiastic believe that
the coming conference will have just
a far-reaching results, and become
quite as historic, as those meetings
which led up to the formation of the
constitution. They recall that the
whole question of a constitution had
its direct origin in a meeting promoted
by George Washington fcr the consid
eration of the control and develop
ment of the Potomac. That confer
ence met at Alexandria in 1785 and
consisted of representatives from Vir
ginia and Maryland. But it was de
cided that the questions involved were
too extensive for two states to handle,
and so another conference was called
to meet at Annapolis in I78fi More of
the states were represented here, but
still not enough. And so the third
cqnference was called to meet the fol
lowing year in Philadelphia. This con
ference, at which all of the atates were
represented, developed into the con
stitutional convention and became the
most important meeting in American

THE STATE CAPITAL
MATTERS OF INTEREST TO ALL
COUNTY ASSESSORS REPORTS
Some Fail-to Place Any Value on Real

Trouble With Assessment
Reports from the county assessors
are still coming Into the oflice of the
secretary of the State Board- of As
sessment, showing the. valuation of
railroad property located In cities and
villages subject to taxation under the
provisions of the terminal tax law. The
tabulation of the returns is at most te
dious job, for the reason that a print
ing establishment sold to county as
sessors blanks upon which to make
their returns which do not conform to
the blanks sent out by the secretary
of the board. This causes considerable
trouble and much vexation. Many of
the assessors have failed to put a
value on railroad real estate, probably
because in the report of the railroads
to the assessors. Save in the case of
the Union Pacific, the value was not
In the past it has been' customary
for the tax commissioner -of the rail
road to sign the repoVts to the State
Board of Assessors, but in"the case of
the Northwestern this year Marvin
Hughitt, president of the road. has
signed the reports. The increase in
the value of the Northwestern proper
ty as shown in the report, Is said by
an official of the road to be due to
the fact that the property was valued
at just what it would cost to reproduce
it. No account was taken of the wear
and tear on the property, notwith
standing it may have been built many
years ago and not kept in good repair.
Other railroad men say this action of
the Northwestern has caused them
considerable grief, because assessors
in some cases have wanted to in
crease their property in proportion to
the increase of the Northwestern.

Suit Against Policyholders.
Frank C. Burke, receiver of the de
funct Mutual Hail insurance society of
Nebraska, has began suit for $30,000
against the 350 policyholders of the
company. The assessment, which
Burke some time ago secured an or
der from the court to levy, amounted
to $1.25 for every acre of land which
the policyholder had Insured at the
time of the failure. The failure of the
society was due to the unusually heavy
losses from hail during the spring of
1907. The individual liability of the
policyholders varies from $20 to $350.
About 20,000 acres of land were cov
ered by the policies of the society and
twenty-three Nebraska counties were
represented. The actual liabilities of
the company, says Receiver Burke,
are not more than $14,000, but the
cost of winding up the affairs of the
company will be large.

Mrs. Homer Cy Washington Waa
Not Talking. Against "Society." "
There has never been any difficulty
about securing Mrs. Homer Clay
Washington of Maple court, when one
more woman was" needed for wash
ing or scrubbing; so that when two
postal cards failed to bring her to the
Morse residence one winter Mrs.
Morse went to see what could be the
trouble says a writer in tae Youth's
She found Mrs. Washington evi
dently in the best of health, entertain
ing two of her neighbors, and was wel
comed most cordially.
"I suttlnly is pow'ful glad to see
yo Mis Morse," said the hostess,
"an Is de fambly all tol'able well?"
"Not as well as we should be if
you had come to help us out," said
Mrs. Morse. "Why didn't you come
when I wrote you? We thought you
must be ill."
"No. Indeed, Mis Morse," and tho
black head tilled airily: "I's enjoying
de best ob health, an de char'ty so
ciety done 'stablish a bread, soup an
coal fund up in de corner, so none of
us ladies in de co't has to work dis
rheumaticky time ob yeah.
"You heah folks talkin 'bout de
harm society does, but us ladies ob
Maple Co't is right ready to stan' up
fo it any time now."
Laundry work at home would be
much more satisfactory if the right
Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces
sary to use so much starch that the
beauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste o'f varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trou
ble can be entirely overcome by using
Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of its great
er strength than other makes.
Bees in Block of Stone.
.While workmen were sawing through
a block of Bath stone at Exeter. Ens-,
land, they cut into a cavity in which
was found a cluster of two or three
dozen live bees.
The incident occurred at the works
of Messrs. Collard & Sons, monu
mental sculptors. There was not much
sign of life in the bees at first, but.
when air was admitted they gradually
revived and after a few hours several
of them were able to fly.
The extraordinary popularity of fine
white goods this summer makes the
choice of Starch a matter of great Im
portance. Defiance Starch, being free
from all Injurious chemicals, is the
only one which is safe to use on fine
fabrics. Its great strength as a stiffen
er makes half the usual quantity of
Starch necessary, with the result of
perfect finish, equal to that when the '
goods were new.
A Kansas Girl's Advice.
A Lincoln county girl writes this ad- -vice
to the Kansas. City Star: "Why
do young men do so much loafing? Go
to work. Push ahead! I am but a
young girl, but I clothe myself and
have money in the bank. I lay up
more money every year than any
young man within throe miles of my '
home. When they get a dollar they
go to a dance and go home a dollar
out. I advise all girls to cut clear of
loafing boys. Stand by the boy who
works, and never put j-our arm
through the handle of a jug."
