tut ws ars colag te give some attention
te the Jobbers and snaaufaeturers whose

reel estate. The tax committee of the
Real Estate exchange has not yet made Us
sromlaed appearance before the board, and
( have been given the tip that It will not

Commissioner O'Keeffs says that the as
lessors' returns this year show an Increase
t only about $200,000 for the entire city
if 6outh Omaha, and this is not enough to
tult him. "I believe the packers and tbs
itock yards can be raised considerably," re
marked the commissioner.

msnt aa the owners of real estate, according
to the assessment for county purposes."
Tbs member then took the book and ran
over the names of many of the retail mer
chants of the city, showing to his sstisfac
tlon that, based upon an assessment of one
sixth of the real value, the stocks were
Justly assessed.
"Ws find," he oontlnued. "that If there
la anything wrong In the county assess
ments, it Is in the Jobbing district. We
cannot maintain that the assessments on
some of the larger houses ars correct, but
on those whose aaaessments run from $1,000
to $65,000 the assessment Is in my opin
ion se nearly correct as to give llttls cause
for complaint
This condition sets at nsught the con
tention of the managers of the public serv
ice corporations that all personal prop
erty In the city la escaping Its Just pro
portion of Uxatlon and places the man
who owns a comparatively small business
tn line with the owners of real estate to
have 4 Just assessment made- upon the
larger holders. "
It Is tbe intention of the committee as
soon as the list of taxpayers Is complete
to make a eomparlaon between the assess
ment for county and city purposes and to
endeavor to have all property equaliied on
a basts of one-sixth for county purposes.

Local Supply is Short and lamins ii
Threatened Boon.
Fael Coadltions la Omaba Become
Bach aa Warrant Apprehea-
eloa oa Part of ths
Wholesale dealers In cosl In Omaha are
beginning to feel alarmed over a shortage
In supply of steam coal. Of nut and lump
the supply Is sufficient for ordinary de
mands of the season. "For some time
tbe Jobbers bsve been filling orders for
steam coal from hand to mouth, delivering
partial consignments on large orders and
keeping things moving as best they might,"
ssys a call man. "but If there is not a
change aoon It will be impossible to meet
all of the demands. Tbe mines are not
shipping liberally and It seems to be im
possible for the Omaha Jobbers to get
enough coal to keep them from uneasiness.
This is dus to the fact that the railroads
which purchase their coal from the mines
which supply the Omaha territory prin
cipally are using mine-run coal at this
time, when a year ago they were using
screened coal. Tbe mine owners In selling
mine-run coal finds a greater profit In the
alack than when be sells it separate, and
so tbe railroads are taking tbe supply
which formerly was placed on the market.
Bo far tbe scarcity has had no effect upon
prices, but it is not impossible that the
present condition will be followed by a
sharp advance. The price of steam coal
Is $2.60 per ton delivered or $2. JO
on board cars at Omaha."
Hard Coal Will Boar.
The local anthracite coal market la pe
culiar and retail dealers In this commodity
are having an experience seldom known on
this market. When the present coal striks
began some of the consumers met tbe men
from whom they purchased their usual win
ter's supply and asked what effect the
striks would hsve on the local msrket. The
answer was anything but reassuring, the
retail men prophesying that coal Is ss
cheap today as it will be at any time during
the year, $10 per ton. In fact some of the
dealers were Inclined to be exceedingly
bullish and predicted a price of $15 per ton
before the close of the winter. Under these
circumstances several of tbe consumers de
cided to place their orders for the winter's
supply Immediately. Some of the dealers
are not prepared to fill winter orders at
this time, while one or two have enough on
band to warrant tbem in taking such or
ders, but they objected to scceptlng tbs or
ders on the basis of future delivery to be
paid for at the time of delivery at the price
obtaining at this time. The result was that
several of tbe largest consumers hsve pur
chased their wtnter'a supply outright and
will havs tbs coal delivered immediately.
In this connection Victor While is laugh
ing at some of the men In tbe business who
laughed at him three months sgo. At that
time the question of the coal supply for the
coming yesr was being discussed by the
local dealers and tbs majority decided that
the price would be loser before the open
ing of the aeason for f&U trade. Mr. White
beloved not. and aa soon as ths low price
of April a as reached be placed aa order
for one-halt of the amount required by him
for Ibe year. The ofher dealers laughed
at him and prophesied that be would be
selling it on the local market at cost in
September. Then came the coal atrike and
the fellows who were laughing now think
that luck is on the aids of the early bird.

Compass- Divided Over daestloa of
Captata's Competeaey aad
Matter of Drills.
There is trouble brewing In tbe Millard
Rifles, due. It is said, to the activity of cer
tain members who are ambitious of pre
ferment. Another version is that ambi
tion has nothing to with it and that the
whole difficulty hinges on tbe incompe
tency of one now In command.
First Lieutenant H. C. Stafford Is at the
bead of the discontented faction. It Is al
leged that quite a number of the enlisted
men and a few non-coms are arrayed under
his standard and that theee are now en
gaged in circulating a petition requesting
the resignation of Captain Thomas A.
Baughman. This petition. It is said, will be
presented to him at tbe next monthly meet
ing of the Rifles, July 1.
Neither Captain Baughman nor Lieuten
ant Stafford will talk for publication, but
from another member of the organization
the following story waa learned:
"Some of the enlisted men became dis
satisfied with Csptain Baughman, and
Lieutenant Stafford was quick to take ad
vantage of this condition," said he. "The
Stafford contingent charges Baughman with
drilling his men on Sunday and with swear
lug at them, both of which are a violation
of the Nebraska National Guard rules. A
few days ago the men extended a vote of
confidence to Captain Baughman and a
vote of reprimand to Lieutenant Stafford,
but it la aaid that only twenty-four out of
a total of fifty-four enlisted men were
present at the meeting, so the Stafford con
tingent attaches no Importance to this fact.
"Ths Baughman wing of the Rifles re
gards ths entire movement as a scheme
on the pert of a few to aecure advance
ment. Second Lieutenant Roy M. Walker
la loyal to Baughman, as are a majority
of tbe non-coms. It Is Impossible to tell
Just a hat proportion of tbe enlisted men
are aligned with the malcontente."

City Oonnci Pnti Off Matter Until Its
September Beiiion.
City Attorney Conaell's Gift Does ot
Appear of Record, Altbeagh Tsz
Exemption Has Become
Because or certain alleged Irregularities
In tbe plan of assessment for Central
boulevard the city council, sitting as a
Board of Equalization, has deferred action
on it until Its next session aa a board,
which will be In September. This will de
lay work on tbe boulevard for at least
three months.
"Tbe trouble Is," said a member of the
council yesterday, "City Attorney Con-
nell has neglected to deed to the city
property In the right-of-way belonging to
him, though be promised to do so, and the
plat shows that it has been done. It was
also discovered that all of Connell's prop
erty abutting on ths boulevard, or in its
Immediate vicinity, is exempt from taxa
tion. These exemptions were agreed to aa
compensation for property In the right-of-way,
but as the plans now stand tbe city
baa neither the property in the rigbt-ot-way
nor the taxes.
"Connell owns nearly all of Griffin's ad
dition, which includes several blocks be
tween Thirty-third and Thirty-sixth and
Poppleton avenue and Center street, and
the boulevard Is mapped through a part of
thia tract.
"It also came to light that, under the
present pisn, many very valuable pieces of
residence property in the Hans com park
district absolutelyescspe taxation, whereas
in other and poorer districts lots are as
sessed to the limit.
Exceeds Charter Limits.
"Then, there Is another point which
threatens tbs legality of the boulevard
scheme, aud that Is that under the system
of stipulations employed by the city attor
ney tbe boulevard will cost considerably
more than $50,0o0. wich Is the limit tbe
city may expend for the Improvement un
der tbe charter. Tbe board of appralaers
was careful to keep ths expense within tbe
charter limit; lta figure was $49,000, or
thereabouts, but many persons, dlseatlsfie!
with the awards, filed suits to bsve tbe
work of tbe board set aside. To induce
such persons to withdraw their suits Con
nell promised them Increased awards and
ths result is that the boulevard has become
an expenslvs luxury."
Mr. Connell said: "It Is all bosh. There
Is absolutely no occasion for deferring ac
tion on the plana. I gave the city a piece
of ground through my property for Its
right-of-wsy 100 feet wide and nearly three
blocks long, and the deed for it Is all made
out. and If they would have given me fif
teen minutes I could have placed it on
record and put everything right.
"If there Is property in the Hanacom park
district that Is assessed too low, or that Is
not assessed st all, that Is. their business,
not mine. That's whst the council is sit
ting aa a Board of Equaliia'len for, to cor
rect such Inequalities."

Boaad to Have ths Extra Haadred If
Perslsteacy Caa Get
Councilman Trostler, chairman of the
committee on street lighting, not dis
couraged by the reverse be received at the
last meeting of the council. Is still work
ing for 100 gas lsmps to be sdded to the
number now in use by the city. The reso
lution providing for these extra lamps Is
In his committee and he is arranging to
make a favorable report on It at tbe next
council meeting.
Tbe lamps cost the city $30 per year
each, making the total expense of the
project $3,000. Trostler figures that there
will be received In royalties $15,000 this
year from the gas company and $2,000 from
the electric light company, which, be
thinka, should sufficiently swell the street
lighting fund to warrant tbs council in
adding the 100 extra gas lampk. City
Comptroller Westberg's figures do not tally
with these exactly.
"The gas company .paid $13,000 In royal
ties last year," said he, "and I estimate
that It will pay about the same amount
this yesr, though tbe secretary has told
Mr. Trostler thst the company Is doing
a larger business this year than laat. The
electric light company has never psld a
royalty before, so we have no precedent to
go by, but from what I can learn I should
say that H will pay not tar from $1,500."
According to Troatler's figures there will
be $4,000 available for his 100 lamps, and
according to Westberg's figures bs can
count on only $717.

Eugene Kemp Makes Unsuccessful Effort to
Bhoot Sii Wife.
Haabaad Retarns to His Abaadoaed
Family aad Undertakes to Mar
der the Mother sf His
Six Children.
After being gone for seven years Eugene
Kemp returned to Omaba and at 11 yester
day morning met his wire st the home of '
ber father, John Canfleld, 612 South Six- '
teenth atreet, and while on the porch In
the presence of her father fired twe shots
at her from a revolver. Tboujin husband
and wife were only a few feet apart, neither
shot took effect. At tbe first shot Mrs.
Kemp Jumped from the porch and at tbe
second she fell. Kemp then replsced the
revolver in his pocket and walked to
Leavenworth street and started west on a
run. Sergeant Welsenberg overtook htm
at Twentieth atreet and locked blm up.
Seven years ago Kemp left his wife and
six small children and went to Wyoming.
A week ago he returned to Omaha and en
deavored to see his wife and his advances
were repulsed. Testerdsy morning he went
to the rooming house run by her fsther and
sent the latter to Mrs. Kemp's room at
CZ1 South Sixteenth street, with the re
quest thst tbe latter come to her father's
snd discuss the disposition of tbelr young
est child.
Husband and wife met on tbe porch, and
the former without any preliminary de
manded that bis wife promise him thst
she would remove from her present room.
When Mrs. Kemp refused to make ths
promise. Kemp pulled his revolver and
fired. At the first shot Mrs. Kemp Jumped
from the porch Into the yard and her
father started for tbe police. As his wife
struck the ground. Kemp fired again and
shs fell. At this Juncture, Mrs. Julia Rice,
a roomer, caught bold of the enraged man
and pleaded with blm not to ahoot again.
While bla wife still Isy on tbe ground
Kemp put his revolver In his pocket and
walked awsy.
Mrs. Rice stated that during Kemp's
seven years absence. Mrs. Kemp had taken
cars of and made a living for their six
children and that during the last week,
since Kemp's return he has made repeated
efforts to obtain possession of the chil
dren and had failed. This, coupled with the
fact that he was Jealous of his wife, shs
said, caused tbe shooting.
