"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 ward this morning. Four hundred people boarded the Manawa motor at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. A train of five coaches had been made up ex- pressely for the Elks from Omaha , but they did not arrive until 2.30. If they had the ciowd of Omaha and Council Bluffs people 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 and night the movement of the crowd to ward the lake was uninterrupted and un precedented. _ Flro and tornado Insurance written in beat companies.

WOUND UP THI DAY WITH A BANQUET Large .Number Present and tlio I'rojrnm Was Diversified KnouRh to Sutlifr the Cnnlng ( or I'lcmuro niul Novelty. 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 terior. A foot race by the slim fellows was run George Mills , alias Spike Hennessey ; George Perrlne , Charlie Potter , Tom Ormsby and Jim Alnscow , each of them weighing between 220 and 250 pounds , lined up for the contest. Potter coughed up three tomato cans In his mad anxiety to have his nose counted first , but the superior sprinting abilities of Mr. Hennessey enabled him to win the prize , which was a large pie. The Irish reel danced by Beech Taylor , president of the Globe Loan and Trust vOm- pany , Steve Larklns of the Colorado Coal syndicate , and Lloyd Jones , president of the Frank Ramge company , was a pleasant and 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. Billy Paxton , Jr. , and Henry Phllbln , In n song and dance , wound up the Intellectual part of the ceremonies , and then the banquet was served In the pavilion. Manager Hulett was everywhere , looking after the Interests of the cuests. The following is a partial list of the appe tites that were in evidence about the banquet tables : W.

Council \Vtll Taxe a Jnnnt. 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 City Clerk Phllllpps wrote to the city clerl of the Missouri town yesterday morning ad vising him of the contemplated Invasion.

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- rage. 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 verage crop. 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 he average From the best evidence attaln- ble the wheat harvest is believed to ag- ; regatc about 40,000,000 bushels. iJSTi i\Tis ON THI : i.vcoain TAX Vet ns Originally I * i e < i Would Have Pro duced ST OOOOOOO of Itevmmc. 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 tour. tour."I "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. " IMCU1T WHIP OdMlllpks FOR JUIA , Applet anil Pcuchci llnve Nuflared Greatly In .Many Stutef. 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.
