"It Just took me thirty-eight minutes from
the time I stepped aboard the electric cars In
Omaha until I was In the Grand Plaza at
Manawa , " said an Omaha man last evening.
"That's pretty nearly real rapid transit , and
that's the way the trains are running now.
With such train service Omaha people don't
need to complain about difficulty in getting
to Manawa. and what a reward for the effort
It IR to get there these hot nights. "
A tourist giving his name as George F.
Cullen was found yesterday afternoon lying
under the trees in front of the General
Dodge place on Third stret. He was a suf
ferer from consumption and heart disease
nnd he was on his way to Denver from his
home In Chicago , having been told by a phy
sician that he might prolong his life sev
eral years by going there. He was hardly
able to walk or breathe on account of his
malady. He was given a place to stop at
the city jail and will go on his way west

Four hundred people boarded the Manawa

did not arrive until 2.30. If they had the

driven out of the cities by the Intense heat
and waiting at the depot would have been
so great that they could not have reached the
cars before the entire train was filled up.
The train thirty minutes later afforded them
ample accomodatlans. During the afternoon

The Omaha niks had thrlr annual outing
at Manhattan beach last night , and It Is
not sti etching the matter a particle to cay
that It was the most pleasant time the lodge
has ever enjoyed. All afternoon the steamers
brought little groups of members , all bent
on having a good time at the expense of
no matter how many buttons. After arriving
at the beach It did not take long for the
water to claim Its own , and for a full hour
there was Imminent danger of the lake over
flowing Its banks from the displacement of
the water by so many fat men. While dls-
poitlng his fragile form among the breakers ,
Doc Haynes tan his great toe against a hard
object which later on proved to be a beer
bottle full of poetry. Several tears were
shed , more on account of the emptiness of the
bottle than the pithos of the lines.
W. J. Colvan of New York , agent for a
metropolitan refrigerator company , under
took to show the wild westerners a few Coney
Island tricks , and It Is a mere streak of luck
that the cororer doesn't have to sit on his
case today. He had been telling the openmouthed -
mouthed Omahans how he had swam five
miles at a stretch In the ocean one time , and
had conveyed the Impression that he was no
smill potatoes when It came to aquatic
sports. He got beyond his depth and began
to call for help. Sergeant Tom Ormsby of
the Omaha police force heard him , but
thought he was joking and advised the
other fellows not to be fooled. Suddenly It
became apparent that there was no fooling
about It , and there was a great effort made
to rescue him. Ho was finally pulled out ,
hair first , by Vandecar , and after he had
been Industriously rolled the last trace of
Manawa water was removed from his In

The Irish reel danced by Beech Taylor ,
president of the Globe Loan and Trust vOm-

syndicate , and Lloyd Jones , president of the

Instructive feature. None of them had danced
the reel since they left the "ould sod , " but
no one would have ever dreamed It.
Spud Farrlsh and Manager Burgess of the
new Crelghton theater did a very neat Job
on a tight rope stretched from the bath
houses to the top of the toboggan slide , and
the afternoon sports would have terminated
very pleasantly had it not been for a slight
accident. The rope broke and both men were
dumped Into the water. Neither , however ,
fortunately had any conscientious scruples
against water , and the accident caused only
a temporary cessation of the festivities.

The members of the city council will leave
this evening for a brief visit to St. Joe. The
party will Include all of the memebers and
perhaps Mayor Cleaver. The object of the
journey Is to ascertain whether or not some
work done on a creek that runs through the
Missouri town , very much In the same manner
that Indian creek meanders through Council
Bluffs , will afford any suggestions applicable
to the control of our own stream. The St ,
Joe creek has been changed from an open
creek Into a closed sewer , and It Is for the
purpose of Inquiring Into the-plans and cost
of the work that the aldermen will undertake
the journey. It has long since been an ad
mitted fact that thd only way to solve the
problem presented by the big , unsightly anil
unhealthful ditch that w nds hrojgh the heart
of the city Is to enclose It in solid brick walls ,
It would not be necessary for the aldermen
to go to a neighboring city for this solution
but the question of regulitlng the flow ol
water In storm periods is the gravest pfob-
1cm. This Is said to have been successfully
solved by the St. Joe engineers , and It Is
mainly for the purpose of looking Into this
feature and noting the construction of the
dams that the aldermen will make the visit

of Rev. Henry DeLong , has dlshindod dur
ing the summer , but Mr. DpLong nnd hi *
wife find no time for a vncutlo.i. In t.ilk-

that an opinion Is abroad and that the work
of looking after the sick nnd .iumMigs
should go right on during the summer the
same as any other time of year , nnd as
they are willing to back up th5lr opinions
with good hard cash the poor will still
find their friends at the old stand.

men unable to work , trying to reach reh

have given to them such as we had. Young

WASHINGTON , July 17. The general ag
ricultural conditions In foreign countries are
reviewed In the report of the department for
July. It Is shown that over a large- part of
Great Urltaln Insufficient rnln interfered with
the general prospects for an excellent har
vest. The effect of the partial drouth Is felt
with particular severity In middle and
southern England. Tlio wheat Is reported In
several counties as lets than half a crop ,
with oats and barley practicaly spoiled. In
the grazing counties the hay Is reported as
of fine quality but deficient In quantity. The
haymaking season has been early and plen
tiful rains coming now would result In good
second crops of clover. In Scotland all pros
pects are reported gooJ.
Reports for the other Important countries
are as follows :
Franco Tup unfavorable weather condl-
ons have resulted In premature blooming
f the wheat and diminished prospects. The
heat crop Is estimated from a poor aver
se with a falling off of 41,000,000 bushc'.s.
. will be remembered that the whit area
as somewhat diminished In the autumn , and
. Is certain that this year s crop will not
e sufficient for domestic needs. Meslln ,
ye and oats are reported as up to the av-
Germany The weather has been more fa-
orable throughout Germany than In France ,
he detailed report from May of the Imperial
tatlstlcal bureau showed the expectation of
reps of wheat , barley , oats and hay to be
etter than the average , but rye was under
10 average. The weather In Juno has mod-
fled the expectation of the May forecast ,
routh having characterized the entire month
i many parts. The wheat crop Is now ex-
ected to fall below the average to the ex-
ent of G to 30 per cent.
Austria-Hungary In Austria the June
eather has been entirely propitious and BO
cneral a recovery has been made of all ce
cal growths that a good average Is confl
ently anticipated. In Hungary the wheat
rep has not done quite so well and Is ex-
ectcd to fall below that of last year from
,000,000 to 8,000,000 bushels.
Spain Heavy rains and floods early In
line denuded large areas of the then stand-
ng crops and Inflicted considerable Injury
enerally. But the prospect now Is for an
Italy An average crop IB now assured.
Russia All authorities predict a bountiful
arvest , particularly In the southern dls-
rlcts , which supply the export wheat to the
Hack sea ports. Here the condition of
oth winter and spring wheat Is consider
bly above the average'and the prospects
f the rye harvest are reported as better
Imn at any previous period In thirty years ,
'ho outlook for a corn' ' crop better than
he average is universal.
North Africa The harvest In Algeria and
Tunis Is completed and Is reported as above

ble the wheat harvest is believed to ag-
; regatc about 40,000,000 bushels.

WASHINGTON , July 17. The Internal
revenue bureau has practically completed the
vork of recording and scheduling the returns
received under the Income tax1 act and very
soon will be ready to begin the work of re-
"undlng the amounts paldbefore the law was
declared unconstitutional. y < The applications
o refund , however , are coming In very
slowly. No classifications to determine the
occupations of the taxpayers or the lelatlve
amounts paid by each state or section of the
country have been made thus far , but judg-
ng from repeated handling of the returns
a tolerably close estimate of some of the
principal deductions which will bs made
ater can now be stated. They are , how
ever , only approximations.
From the returns made ! t Is believed that
'ully ' one-half of the number of people s\ib-
lect to the tax made no return whatever , and
: hls proportion Is believed to ha even greater
n respect to the amounts of the tax nvolved.
The aggregate of the returns made represent
about $15,000,000 of tax and hence about
$30,200,000 , It Is calculated , would have been
collected if all who were subject to the
Lax sent In returns. It Is also estimated that
the first decision of the supreme court ex
empting rents and receipts from bonds from
the operation of the act resulted In the lo s
of fully $15,000,000 , so that had the act re
mained as It originally stood the total re
ceipts from this source , according to esti
mates now made , would have approximated
$45,000,000 , and even $50,000,000. As to the
proportion of the tax which would have been
borne by each section of the country only
a rough estimate can now be made. The
returns , however , seemed to Indicate that
New England and the middle states would
have paid about two-thirds of the whole tax
and the western and the southern sections
each about one-sixth of the whole.
TAV.KKD O POLITICS ON HIS TIUP
Secretary Laniont Speak * Encouragingly of
the Condition * In the Writ.
WASHINGTON. July 17. Secretary Lament -
mont said today he did not talk politics and
did not see any politicians during his western
"I was not hunting ghosts , " said he ,
"though I am told some were about. My trip
was purely a business one and I had neither
Inclination nor opportunity to meddle In poli
tics. About the only people I saw were the
military people. "
"You observed the condition of the country
through which you passed ? "
"Yes , enough to see that It appeared pros
perous and promising. The railway men whom
I met told me the outlook was very favorable
for great prosperity. They are about the
only ones I had an opportunity to talk with
on the subject , and I presume they are about
the best judges , I could see the country was
as green as our eastern lauds and the rail
road people told me the crops were In an un
usually good condition and gave promise ol
the beet results they have Juid In that country
for some time. It was said the whole coun
try was experiencing a renewal of prosperity
and that the people were corttcnted and sat
isfied with outlook. All'tb ? cropa are In the
best possible condition iSnd the reports from
the various sections of ( he pountry Indicate
a great product for the year1. The railroads
arc all providing for an immense amount ol
business. The president1 of , ype of the roads
told me they were getting , rpjidy to haul 75-
000,000 bushels of wheat on his road. All
this , they said , Indicate ) ! general prosperity
and contentment among weitern people. "

WASHINGTON , July 7- , The fruit croi
bulletin of the Agricultural "department foi
July shows a material decline in condition
The report Is summarized as follows : The
condition of apples hag been materially lowered - '
ered since the report of June. Losses hav <
been especially marked In some states whlct
have already low conditions , viz ; The New
England sta'es , New York , Pennsylvania
Michigan , Wisconsin and Minnesota. In tin
I'ledmont region the outlook Is dec'dedly mori
favorable. In Missouri and contiguous state
the decline hai been light , not above 3 pei
cent In any case , but the conditions are no
quite aa high as in the orchards. On thi
Pacific coast conditions fell about 11 per cent
but the prospects there are still good. Fros
at time of bloom , subsequent drouths am
heavy droppings are the main causes of tin
The peach crop returns are also unfavor
able. Georgia and Connecticut alone of thi
leading commercial states have a higher per
centage , the former having moved up to 100
a gatr of 1 per cent ; the latter declining ti
80 from 91 New Jersey has lost 12 point
and now stands at 73 ; Delaware , 13 , standlni
at 70. Maryland has advanced from C3 to
66. The condition of Virginia , 69 , Is
lower than In Juno by 13 point * . Michigan
has prospects of less than halt a crop , while
Ohio Is 22. lowest of all. In California the
condition figure declined from 88 on June 1
to 75 on July 1. Frosts have done much
dnmago to the grape crop , and especially In
the more northern belt anl central wcit.

WASHINGTON , July 17. The Memphis
tax cases were filed In the United States su
premo'court yesterday in an assignment of
error In the decisions of the supreme court
of Tennessee. There are twelve of the rases ,
there being one each on account of the city

the follow Ing named Institutions : The Planters
Fire and Marine Insurance company , the
Home Insurance and Trust company , the Mer

from taxation on account of old charters
granted to United States companies of which
they have come Into possession and some of
which are never utilized by the companies to
which they are granted. The state denied
the existence of the Immunity claimed In all
the casea and brought suit to compel the pi/-

red thousand dollars. The decision of the

WASHINGTON , July 17. It Is stated au-
horltatlvely that no assurances have been
given to Mgr. Satolll that the papal decree
egardlng the Knights of Pythias would be
oconstdercd with a view to Its modification
nd possible annulment. The authorities
ere do not recall any visit toy a member

hat the vacating : of It would even be con-

WASHINGTON , July 17. No official con-
rmatlon of the decision of the Spanish cabl

eached at Washington. According to the
ipanlsh practice , the ministry , who form a
ouncll similar to the British council of state ,
sually refers such cases as the Mora claim
o a subcommittee for determination , and It is
lelieved here that the decision referred to In
he cable dispatches are really only that of

his particular claim. If the full ministerial
iouncil approves the report of the full com-
nlttce It Is not absolutely necessary to await

WASHINGTON , July 17. Among high ec

concerning the reports that Mgr. O'Connell
of the American college at Rome would be
assigned to an Important post li the United
States. The reports as to Mgr. O'Connell are
regarded as vague speculation. Thus far no
word concerning him has been communlcited
o Mgr. Satolll , who would be the one most
Ikely to know If any change of Importance
were about to occur.

SIOUX CITY , July 17. ( Special Telegram. )
An unusual proceeding was commonc'd here
today to debar W. 11. Levy , n local criminal
lawyer , from practicing In the courts of this
state. Levy was admitted In South Dakota
but came to Sioux City about a year ago.
The state law permits attorneys fiom other
states to practice within Its borders so long
as they do not establish a residence here.
When they do they are required to satisfy
the supreme court that they are qualified for
admission to the bar of the state. Levy has
never made this showing , although It Is
claimed he has established a residence. At
the application of a number of prominent at
torneys he has bcccn suspended pending an
Inquiry Into the case. If It Is decided ngaliift
him Levy will appeal to the supreme court.
The procedlng Is the first of the kind ever
tried In this state.
