The Board of Review Is not through
with Its revision and Tax Commissioner
Fitzgerald mated late yesterday afternoon
that f.robably another day would be taken
up In fixing up the reports of the board.
He did say, however, that the valuation
would not fall below $10.01)0,000. ' The exact
valuation will not be known until the board
completes its work and submits a report.
On account of the large number of small
complaints filed Hits year the work of the
board has been tedious, but the members
re putting In full time and propose getting
through as soon as possible. Fewer com
plaints were received this year from largo
concerna than In former years, but It la
thought that the number of smaller com
plaints filed la larger.
Th9 valuation so far returned by the
city assessors Is the highest In the his
tory of the city. For the year 11)01 the
valuation of all of the property in the
city, including the corporations, as returned
by the tax commissioner, amounted to only
little, over $L 500,000.
It was reported late yesterday afternoon
that several of the corporation representa
tives had declared that unless their valua
tions were lowered the matter would be
taken Into the courts and the entire levy
tied up. This rumor could not, however,
be confirmed.
Corporation valuations, as accepted by the
Board of Review:
I'nlon Block Yards ompany $1.351,' O)

Nebraska Telephone, company 75.0"
Parkvrs Nntlonal bank 1
South Omaha National bank 32.'''
Union Stuck Yards Nntlonal bank.. 32," 0
The only changes made by the board
from the flgurea submitted by Tax Com
missioner Flttgerald was a reduction of
$23,000 In the valuntlon of the Union Stock
Yards National bank and an Increase in
the, valuation of the property oj the New
Thomson-Houston Electric Light company.
The total valuation of the corporations do
ing business here Is $7,055,000.
Members of the city council assert that
with a valuation of about $16,000,00(1 the levy
can be cut from 44 to about 8 mills. Un
der the terms of the present charter the
city Is permitted to levy only so much for
each fund. The general fund is allowed
$38,000; fire, $13,000; police, $18,000; lights,
$13,000; water, $13,000; paving repairs,
$2,500; park, $2,500; library. $',00. In ad
dition to this a levy for a sinking fund to
the amount of $41,000 may be made to pay
the Interest on general indebtedness bonds
and other bonds from districts where prop
erty owners have not met their obligations.
It appears to be the Intention of the coun
cil to keep the levy down to the lowest pos
sible limit.
Probably- Will Open.
Before leaving for Chicago yesterday an
'official of the Hammond Tacking company
was asked about the rumor that the plant
here would soou reopen. The reply was
that the plant would probably open within
a short time, but no definite arrangements
bad been made. I'ackers here expect a big
run of stock from the ranges before long.
On account of the condition of the grass it
Is asserted that the run will commence
about July 15, which -Is a little earlier than
vsual. It 1 understood that the packers
and the stock yards company are making
preparations for an exceedingly heavy run.
The returns from the ranges show that the
country north and northwest of this mar
ket la fl:lel with cattle ready to be shipped
to market at any time.
Hawthorne Addition.
Theodore Schroeder, chairman of the com
mittee on buildings and grounds of the
Board of Education, la advertising for bids
for the construction of a two-room addition
to llawthorno school. Eighteenth street and
Missouri avenue. Bids for this work will
be received by the board up to noon of
Monday, June 30. The stipulation Is made
that all bids must be accompanied by a
certified check for $100 as an evidence of
good faith. It ia further stated In the ad
vertisement that - the board reserve the
right to reject any or all bids. Member
of the board assert that the construction of
two additional rooms to this school build
ing will greatly relieve the crowded condi
tion of the Central School.
Provoiri Oil Wsrrhoaiei.
Chief Etter of the fir department has
railed the attention of the city officials
to the storage of oils In buildings located
Inside of the city limits. In speaking of
this matter the chief said: "I refer par
ticularly to the various grocers' estab
lishments, wherein are stored oils, and
especially gasoline, sufficient to cause a
bad Are. In order to remedy Ihls danger
as much as possible I recommend that an
ordinance be passed to compel all persons
dealing In oils to provide fireproof houses.
If such structures are erected and the oils
kept therein the chances of Ore will be
greatly lessened. I earnestly hope that
the city council will taks up this matter
at an early date."
TO GET AROUND EXTRADITION
Attorneys for Ilahn Are Now Trying
to Clrrnmrent Action of
Governor 'ah.
MANSFIELD. O., June 27. As soon as the
news was received here today that Gov
ernor Nash had decided to honor the requi
sition for William Hahn, charged with
grand larceny, his attorneys set about to
circumvent extradition.
Mr. Hahn mas here awaiting the decision.
The governor's decision that the offense
charged constituted a crime under the laws
of Ohio, as well its of New York led to the
preparation of an affidavit by Prosecuting
Attorney W. H. Dowers of this city,
charging the same offense as that for
which Mr. Hahn Is under indictment la
New York. A warrant was Issued for Mr.
Hahn and he was arrested. He pleaded not
guilty to the charge of grand larceny. It
was decided that the preliminary hearing
should be held In the mayor's court next
Monday morning. The defendant's at
torney did not offer ball, and the defc-nd-
nt was left In charge of Chief of Police
Weil.
Just after this preliminary Sheriff Payne
put in an appearance at. the mayor's court.
having received instructions from the at-
orncys representing the dlBtrlct attorney
of New York to arrest and hold Hahn.
When the sheriff found that he was too
ate and that the defendant was already In
he custody of the chief of police he notified
the governor of the turn affairs had taken
and advices from that official to do noth-
ng until the arrival of the papers and the
representatives of the New York officials
from Columbus. It is the Intention of Mr.
Hahn and his attorneys to have the trial
of Mr. Hahn In Ohio, Instead of New York.
Detective Brlndley of New York and Sheriff
Payne, with requisition from the governor
for W. M. Hahn, went to Hahn's country
home late tonight after him, but Chief of
Police Weil refused to allow him to be
taken away or even to be seen.
HIS EYES DANCE
When His Good Drink Cornea.
A coffee that will nourish and furnish all
the food required to rear a baby Is evidently
easy food for an adult to digest and is es
pecially applicable where ordinary coffee
does not agree.
The wife of a Congregational minister
gives an experience: "It Is rather curious,
the manner In which I cam to adopt Poa
turn for my baby. My husband used to be
troubled greatly with bllllous headaches
end extreme nervousness. This waa about
five years ago. We concluded that coffete
and tea wer the cause of hi troubles and
so gave Postum Food Coffee a trial. At
first we did not like it, because It was not
boiled long enough and seemed weak and
tasteless, but after preparing It properly
and that Is easy, we became very fond of
It, and now can. honestly say we prefer It
to any coffee or tea.
"The old headache and nervousness bave
dtsapeared and we both enjoy very much
better health.
"When one of our children waa a year
old he would, not drink milk, so we tried
htm on Postum Coffee, and from the first
he liked It and U agreed with him perfectly
so Postum has been his drink now for over
four years.
"About ten months ago a baby boy came
to our bouse. I was, of course, anxious
to bave good nourishment for him, and so
drank from Ova to sight cupa of Postum
during the day. - This, with a little Grape
Nuts Food each day was all the nourish
ment I took, aud although baby weighed
only Ave pounds at birth, he weighed twelve
and one-half pounds at. three months and
at four months fifteen pounds. Now he
weighs tweuty-three pounds.
"About "the weeks ago the llltle fellow
suddenly weaned hliBself, much to our sur
prise. I tried him on cow's milk, but he
would not have It. I then tried a certain
baby food, then another, but he would have
neither. I felt . very anxious about him,
but remembering experimenting with an
other boy with Postum. I gave him some,
which he drauk with the greatest relish..
It agreed with him perfectly, so he lived on
It for one week. : 8, nee then he has learned
to eat a Utile other food, but he prefer
Postuin Coffee to anything else aud looks
perfectly delighted when he sees m com
ing with It. I said the other morning, 'I
wish the Postum - Company . soeild e
baby drink their coffee; it would certainly
please them.' It agree with' him so per
fectly jhat I shall -continue-, to bav htm
drink. It .to hla heart's content. I don't
Ilk' to bav my name printed, but you can
say J am a Cgpfc .Pastor's wife." Nam

E
VERY WEEK IT COMES
full of fresh pictures made
from photographs, illus
trating' current history, !-
cal and general, with a fidelity other
wise Impossible. Actual scenes from
real life form the basis of The Illus
trated Bee, and Its reputation for ac
curacy Is as well established as Its
standing In the field of art. It ha a
place peculiarly its own, and while
Justly proud of Its record, it is always
striving to merit the good things that
bave been said of It and to afford its
readers each week the furl pleasure
and satisfaction they have come to
expect.
FOURTH OF JULY comes next week,
and with it tbe annual explo
slon of some ton of powder for the
purpose of exemplifying the patriot
ism of the people. The frontispiece
of The Illustrated Bee will recall to
many memories of the Glorious Fourth
of days gone by. ' It is a specially
posed picture, made by a stall artist,
and will appeal, to all who recall the
old-fashioned celebrations, when the
day meant something more than noise
and ball games.
EAST SIDE HOUSKEEPING in New
York is told about ia a special
article of uncommon Interest. The
dweller in a small and fearfully
crowded section of the great metrop
olis bave frequently been described
by sociological and humanitarian
writers, who depict the squalor and
misery of tbe people who live there.
The author of the present article
fiuds that these people are not so
much to be pitied, their chief short
coming seeming to be that they live
as they do because they cannot afford
to live better. They are thrifty and
energetic and get away from their
surroundings as fast as possible.
Photographs of interiors serve to il
lustrate the article.
VIABUCTS AND TRAFFIC Is another
chaper on an interesting topic,
the first of which apeared in The
Illustrated Bee some month ago.
The advantage that grow out of the
abolition of the grade crossing are
discussed In the present article. The
modern fast service, both freight and
passenger, on the railroads is the
outgrowth of tbe condition which ha
made them possible. Illustrations
for the article are made from photo
graph of ten of the overhead cross
ings the railroads maintain in and
around Omaha. The former article
was Illustrated with view of the via
ducts on which the street run over
the railroads.
COMMERCIAL CLUB MEMBERS had a
most enjoyable trip through
northeastern Nebraska, visiting a
great many towns, meeting old and
new friends and spreading the gospel
of Omaha' commercial prosperity. It
was one of the most successful trips
ever undertaken by tbe club, and the
members who went came home more
than ever imbued with the idea of the
Importance to Omaha of the country
visited. A full page of The Illus
trated Bee is given over to illustra
tions of scenes and Incidents of the
trip.
FIGHT OF TOBACCO TRUSTS for su
premacy in the British market
Is the topic of the weekly letter of
Frank G. Carpenter. In this letter
Mr. Carpenter tells of the Invasion of
England by the American tobacco
trust and of the formation of the
BrltlBh factories Into a trust to meet
the competition. With bis customary
accuracy of detail Mr. Carpenter re
count in an entertaining manner the
progress of the war and makes a pre
diction as to its outcome. He also
cite some of tbe dally Instances of
the invasion of England by Yankee
industries. The illustration are
mad from photograph taken in Lon
don. '
OTHER FEATURES Include pictures of
people who have come into
prominence bofor the public, of

BOARD BOOSTS THE JOBBERS
Raises Last Tear's Assessment of Thir
teen of Them $113,240.
CORPORATION COMPROMISES ARE TOLD
Tax Committee Dlvalsjea tbe Flstares
It Will Reeommead, Which Rep
resent aa Increase ef
f 1,003,104 Over 10O1.
The net result of the Thursday afternoon
meeting of the County Board of Equaliza
tion was the raising of tbe personal as
sessments of thirteen prlricipal Jobbers of
Omaha $113,240 over the total for the same
firms In 1901, snd $107,695 over their total
as returned by the assessors of 1902.
Another Interesting feature was the dis
ci ouere that tbe tax committee of the Real
Fstate exchange bas arranged, for the
board's sanction, a compromisa with the five
franchlsed corporations of Omaha, tbe five
packers and the stock yards that would re
sult In their personal assessments being
raised $1,905,104 over their total for 1901,
and $1,198,357 over their total as returned
by tbe assessors this year. The county
commissioners have not, and may not, sane
t'on all of these latter figures, but they
have promised that If changes are made
none will be reductions.
hoard Raises Some Realtjr
At tbe forenoon session the board bad
made a raise of $60,000 on realty, most of
It prominent corners ' on Sixteenth street.
Altogether It was the busiest day the board
has bad, and the most prolific of results. It
served, too, 'to bring the members of the
exchange tax committee and the members
of tbe board into a more satisfactory and
congenial unity than has seemed to exist
heretofore. The committeemen conceded
that, having carried their work this far,
they are In duty bound to go clear on down
tbe line, and tbe commissioners say they
are In precisely the same fix. Hence more
Jobbers are to be given audiences today,
and men of other business on subsequent
days, probably to the board's legal time
limit, which will be July 10. Bo long as it
sits complaints may be filed, but the board
hopes to have all In early on account of
the Inevitable closing 'ush. Hereafter all
who appear are to swear to their schedules.
Jobbers Take Their Medicine.
It was at 3 o'clock yesterday that repre
sentatives of the thirteen Jobbing bouses
appeared in the commissioners' chamber.
The way bad been partially prepared by a
meeting with the tax committee the day
previous, but the latter filed no complaints
and the Jobbers and board proceeded with
out acrimony. The discussion lasted per
haps two hours, with much ciphering, and
tbe following table shows the result, the
last column representing the personal as
sessment that the board voted for 1902:

It could not-be laid that all the Jobbers
were fully satisfied with what was done to
them, but neither dtd anyone seriously pre
tend that It was all that might have been
done to them, and they accepted the com
promise In good spirit.
More Corporations Submit.
In the course of the meeting tbe tax com
mittee presented the signed agreements of
tbe electric light company and the tele
phone company to a raise to $100,000 each,
which Is considerably more, proportion
ately, than the city's assessment. The
committee recommended approval of these
and the two filed the previous day from the
street railway and gas companies and It
favored immediate action, but the board
voted to defer voting until Friday, O'Keeffe
dissenting.
The water company was mentioned, but
Chairman Read of the committee an
nounced that after bis interview In Tbe
Bee, printed Monday, he bnd discovered
that he had been mistaken concerning tbe
asscesment of that company and that his
committee now finds that the company
made a return of $476,010 for personal as
sessment and considers that satisfactory.
Stock Yards Secret Is Oat.
Then came tbe disclosure of a secret that
the committeemen have been hugging to
tbelr breasts for two days with all tbe Joy
of a child who Is about to give her teacher
tbe biggest red apple of the season. It
was that the stock yards company bad
agreed to raising Its personal assessment
from $16,865 to $400,000. Every man on
the committee grow "chesty" when Attor
ney; Mcintosh whispered the news over the
desk to Chairman Ostrom, who bad been
cornered previously Into an admission that
he supposed the compromise figure would
be In tbe neighborhood of $200,000.
Board la Committed.
No action was taken and ao pledge mads
by the board, but th latter must either
accept tbe figure or raise It, In view of
Commissioner Harte's emphatic assertion
that there "will certainly be no reduc
tions of tbe compromise figures" and In
view of that other very Important fact that
the public Is clamoring and has been clam
oring ever since that action of the board
last year, wblcb one member yesterday ad
mitted to bave been a complete "fluke."

Marvelous Escape From
Death!
PAINE'S CELERY
COMPOUND
Does a Wondrous Work for a
Lady Who Was Almost
Crazed With Pain
and Suffering.
It is well known that terrible rheumatism,
ciattca. and neuralgia cause more helpless
ness, acuta suffering and agony, than any of
the other disease that afflict humanity.
Tbe great medicinal virtues of Palne's
Celery Compound make It the only trust
worthy specific for the cure of all form of
rheumatism and neuralgia. Thousands of
strong testimonial letters from tbe most
prominent people of the land, prove that
Palne's Celery Compound has banished
these terribly fatal troubles when all other
treatment has failed. Mr. Margaret Bethel
of Bralnerd, Minn., after thirty year of
agonlxtng tortures bad a desire to end ber
life. If It was the will of Heaven; ah al
most prayed for the time to lay It down.
Heaven-directed, she made use of Paine'
Celery Compound, and I enjoying true life
once more. She says:
"For thirty years I have been a great
sufferer from neuralgia In the head, and also
with rheumatism in the whole body. I be
gan taking Palne's Celery Compound and
soon found I was much better. Before tak
ing the Compound, my life was such a bur
den that I almost prayed to lay it down. I
was bedfast every two weeks with horrible
pain In the head, back, and neck, until I
was almost crazed. I am able to do harder
work and more of It today than for twenty
five years. I am really enjoying life again,
thanks to Palne's Celery Compound. I am
satisfied that my life ha been prolonged
many years by Its use."
