The Douglas County School Officers aso-
clatloa baa asked Superintendent Fowler
for a ruling as to whether or not It Is
lawful for school district to Insure school
property In mutual Insurance companies.
Toe attorney general, responding to a re
quest from the superintendent, has given
the following opinion, which will be the
rule of the department:
Bchocl district officers have the power to
Insure school district property. M-ituil
fire Insurance companies are authorl'ed and
recognised by the statutes. One taking out
a policy In such company, however, be
comes by that art a member of the com
pany. He Is subject to asssments for
Insses Incurred by the company and as--liimM
other duties and responsibilities
which are not within the ordinary powers
and duties of school districts, and wh'l
there is perhaps no statute prohlMtlng such
action on the part of the school district still
I doubt the advisability or excellency of
their becomln a member of such corpora
tion. I would advise, therefore, that If
they desire to Insure the iltr1ct property
they take a policy In an old line company,
psy the premium on it and subject them
selves to no othei liability,

council, sitting as a board of equalization,
thla afternoon raised the a's-sscd valua
tion of the property of the Nebraska Tele
phone company In this city from $100,000 ti
1125.000. The city tax commissioner flxd
the valuation at the former figure and the
Lincoln Commercial club protested, ask'nj
for an Increase of $150,000. Councilman
Bishop asked for an 'increase to $300,000.

were convinced from the records they bad
examined that the rece'pts of the Lincoln
office of the company during last year were
not over $80,000, while for the same period
tbe expenditures were $51,000.
A. S. Tlbbetts, apprarlng la a legal ca
pacity for the Commercial club, brought
out the fact that the receipts for use of t:ll
lines were not included In the figures. It
was asserted by the company's representa
tives that the receipts for the use of the
toll lines are credited at large to a district
and not to the station in which they arc
paid. It was argued, however, that the
profits In tbe toll business would not ma
terially Increase the figures returned by the

FARMERS UP AGAINST TRUST
Confronted hy Tkrethers Combine la
Doaae Conaty, Who Advance Price
Tweaty Ter Cent.
FREMONT. Neb.. June it. (Special.)
When tbe farmers of thla vicinity began to
make contracts for threshing their grain
recently they were much surprised to find
an advance of about 20 per cent in ths
charges msde by the threshers, std It now
appears that there Is a threshing combine
or trust In this vicinity which Is likely to
make the farmer pay more than usual to
get his grain ready for tbe market.
In April last a meeting waa held here
which was attended by the principal own
ers of threihing machines In this and ad
joining counties, at which it was 'decided
that on account of the general advance la
the price of machines, repairs, coal and
other things they decided to advance tbe
price. Committees were appointed and an
organisation perfected, which Is likely to be
a success. Lsst week another meeting was
he'd st Hooper, which was quit well at
tended. Farmers are satisfied that a combine ex
ists, Including practically all the machine
owners In thla vicinity and extending
throughout this entire portion of tbe state,
and are contriving some means to get their
grain ready for market at the usual prices.
Seme say they will buy machlnea of their
own before tbey will pay the price charged.
The increase In price come the hardest
on tenants who rent on shares or pay a
certain number of bushela per acre for
their landi as they are without mean to
buy machine, and many are obliged to
market their grain very soon after it Is
The wheat harvest will commence here
next week. Winter wheat Is looking well
and will make a good crop. The cblncb bug
is reported aa working In spring wheat.
The Indications are that tbe oat crop will
be a big one and that there will be a
consequent fall In prices.
It Is owing to some extent to these facts
that farmers are refusing to contract for
their threshing at the present prices.
MORE TROUBLE AT BEATRICE
Superintendent and Steward at
Feeble Minded Institute In

BEATRICE, Neb., June IS. (Special.)
It Is a well known fact that there la
trouble brewing at the Institute for the
Feeble Minded here and that Superin
tendent Johnson has asked for Steward M.
A. Me tiger's resignation, to take effect July
L From what can be learned It is a con
tinuation of the trouble bad between the
superintendent and steward last year,
when Governor Savage visited the Institute
and read the law to both sides. Shortly
after the governor's visit to the city Mr.
Melxger removed his family to town and
It Is understood he did so at tbe request
of Governor Savage.
Although not confirmed. It is reported
that If the steward resigns as requested a
number of changes will bo made at the in
stitute. Mr. Metzger say be ha not as
yet been notified of his removal by Dr.
It Is slated on good authority that Mrs.
Plckell of Lincoln has already been ap
pointed as Mr. Metiger's successor.
Governor Savsge Is expected hers within
tbe next day or two and the outcome of the
trouble will be watched with considerable
Interest by Beatrice citizens.

DEWEY MAKES STATEMENT
Brings Out a Knmber of Matters Relative
to the lorrendei of the Oitj of Manila,
TELLS OF RELATIONS WITH AGU1NALD0
Pnt Htsa Asbore ana Told Hint to Or
tranlae His People, bat Filipino
Lender Made Fallare at
WASHINGTON. June 26. Admiral Dewey
made a statement before tbe senate com
mittee on the Philippine this morning
concerning the early operations at Manila,
when be was In command of the American
naval forces In Philippine waters. The ad
miral's statement contributed an Important
addition to tbe history of the surrender of
tbe city of Manila. This consisted of a
positive statement by the admiral to the
effect that the city had been surrendered
to him at the flme that the Bpanlah fleet
was sunk and that when tbe city did sur
render It was in pursuance of a definite un
derstanding between himself and the Span
ish governor general.
The admiral wa questioned by Senator
Lodge. He said be bad first beard from
Agulnaldo and bis friends about April 1,
Ug, a month before the battle In Manila
bay, when it became certain that there waa
to be war.
"I then heard that there were a number
of Flliplncs who desired to accompsny tbe
feet to Manila," be continued. "All of
them were young and earnest. I did not
attach much Importance to them or to what
they said. The day before we left Hong
Kong I received a telegram from Consul
General Pratt, located at Singapore, saying
that Agulnaldo waa at Singapore and would
join me at Hong Kong. I replied 'all right;
tell him to come aboard,' but I attached so
little Importance to the message that I
aalled without Agulnaldo and before be ar
rived. There were then many promises as
to what tbe Filipinos would do, but I did
not depend upon them. Consul Williams
arsured me that upon our arrival and ths
firing of the first gun 10,000 Filipinos would
rise. None did arise, and I frequently
Joked bim on this point."
Admiral Dewey said tbe 8panlsh gov
ernor wanted to surrender tbe city te bim
after tbe destruction of the fleet and that
he Dewey) would have accepted the formal
surrender If be bad had 6.000 troops to
garrison the city. He told about Agul-
nsldo's arrival, saying that he put bim
ashore and told bim to organise bis people.
Agulnsldo came back discouraged and
wanted to go to Japan, but the admiral told
him to continue fc'.a efforts. The admiral
said he paid no attent'on to Agulnaldo'
first proclamation of independence of the
Filipinos. Speaking of Agulnaldo' military
operations, he said he did wonderfully In
whipping the Spanish.
Admiral Dewey aald emphatically that hs
never bad recognised Aguiaaldo's govern
ment, nor did he salute Agulnaldo's flsg.
He never caUed Agulnaldo "general," but
addressed him aa "bom Emlllo."
The admiral said he had never given the
Philippine republic the slightest recogni
tion; that he had no authority to do so. and
did not consider It an organiied govern
ment. He aald the Spanlah were fearful
of the Filipinos entering Manila, and there
fore surrendered to him In advance. Ha
said there was no need for the loss of -a

manded that a few shot be fired, "so I
bad to fire and kill a few people," eald
the admiral, but tbe Spaniards did not
fire, because he (Dewey) bad warned them
not to do so.
He did not believe the Filipino could
bare taken tbe city unaided, but the Span
lards were greatly demoralised.
The admiral said he never received a
letter from Consul Pratt telling him he
must co-operate with Agulnaldo. He added
that Pratt wrote a number of foolish let
ter about that time.
Admiral Dewey said be had written the
Navy department that the Filipinos were
more capable of self-government than the
Cubans, because be saw that congress con
templated giving Independence to Cuba and
he knew that the American people bad
little information concerning the Filipinos.
The admiral said that when Agulnaldo
was at the height of his power the British
admiral, Seymour, had advised the Filipino
chief to tie to tbe Americans, as they were
his best friends. He said that when be
let the Filipinos have guns and ammuni
tion he thought that it was a military
necessity. Looking backward, be could see
that they were not needed. He considered
them very ungrateful In turning against
tbe United States. Tbe admiral said be and
not the Filipinos had captured Sublg bay
and be had taken possession because a
German man-of-war was preventing Ag
ulnaldo from passing.
Admiral Dewey hsd not concluded when
