BANK AND ASSESSORS' VALUES DIFFER
Proposition Advanced to Hal the
.Yelaatloa on Farm Property and -Make
The session of the County Board of
Equalization with several bankers of
'Omaha late Monday afternoon ended with
out a vote being taken to fix the assessed
valuation of the hanks. Herman Kountie,
president of the First National, aought to
have the board accept a atatement of Ms
bank not made out iu accordance with the
board's reaolutlon and the argument! on
.he proposition took the time until (
o'clock, when the board adjourned for the
day, Informing the bankers that It would
not fix the assessment without first noti
Wholesale Firms Raised.
Earlier In the afternoon the board raised
the assessors' returns on several whole
aale houses, as follows: RibMe Taper com
pany, from $1,600 to $2,000; Colllna A Mor
rison, from $2,500 to $2,;'); Marks Bros.,
from $7,000 to $7,600; Interstate Rubber
company, from $5,265 to $14,600: Bruns-wIcke-Balke-Collender,
from $3,000 to
110.000; A. Hospe, from $1,065 to $2,500;
Collins Piano company, reduced from $1,100
to $850; Porter, Hycrson & Hoobler, raised
rom $1,150 to $.1,M0; Gate City Hat com.
pany, from $2,630 to $4,000. Those who ap
peared but wboe assessment was left an
It waa were: The Richardson Prug com
pany, $16,690; Her & Co., $7,265; Western
Jlewapaper Union, $3,660. The Relchen-Jterg-Smith
and E. A. Dayton Jewelry
firms were Instructed to appear today with
7'rrinlaal Company Cited.
There was filed with the board a com
plaint by the tax -committee against the
Omaha Bridge and Terminal company as
sessment and Attorney Mcintosh hinted of
$40,000 as the possible assessment figure,
declaring that would not be too high, as
the company' property properly Includes
the Illinois Central railroad to the extent
of furnishing Us terminal.
The bank controversy was precipitated,
to a certain extent, by the attitude of
Henry W. Yates, president of the Nebraska
National, who rebels this year against
longer tolerance of an alleged discriminat
ing method that resulted last year In his
tiank paying a tax of $13 per share, while
the First National bank paid but $6 per
Mr. Konntse'a Plan.
This year Mr. Kountze asked to be per
mitted to do as he did last year and after
deducting premiums paid from the total of
capital, surplus and undivided profits, take
one-sixth the total fair value so repre
sented and from It deduct the assessor's
return on realty, which is supposed to
be 16 per cent of the actual value.
This was not in accordance with the re
quest of the board and the commissioners
could not accede. Their resolution had
required that the realty of the banks be
deducted from the total at Its full value
as shown on each bank's books. The whole
controversy hipged on the fact that the
First National bank Is carrying its realty
at less than six times the return of the
assessor. In fact, Mr. Kountse let drop
the remark that as rated by the bank It to
tals $155,365.94. This statement, if cor
rectly understood by the board, makes It
an easy task to show where the county
would lose It the board rescinded Its res
olution and adopted Mr. Kountze'a plan.
Mar Raise Farm Values.
Farm owners of Douglas county may
.receive attention from the Board of
Equalization that will mean a raise in
the assesed valuation of their holdings.
' Attorney Mcintosh said to the board
yesterday: "Permit me to cal! your
attention to the fact that the county pre
cincts should be raised In assessment that
the county may make a uniform showing
when It goes before the State Board of
Equalization. That board will necessarily
consider the realty valuations of the
different counties and if we show that
you have made an effort to get valuations
In general to somewhere near the right
figure It will be that much easier to get
the state body to properly recognize the
difference between this county and those
others that are assessing at one-tenth the
actual value or similarly low per cents.
The state cannot in fairness expect Doug
las county to permit Itself, assessed at one
atxth fair value, to stand a classification
with other counties assessing on the lower
The only considerable raise made by the
board yesterday was on the personal as
aessment of two department atores. Hay
den Bros, had been cited to appear with
their books and stand trial, but William
Hayden told the board that rather than
enter Into a prolonged controversy of that
kind his firm would stand an assessment of
$40,000, which is the same aa that of M. E.
Bmlth A Co., a leading wholesale house.
The board approved the figure. Last year
the assessment was $20,000 and the asses
sor's return this year was $22,790.
Brandels 4 Sons of the Boston Store an
nounced a willingness to stand a raise in
proportion to that of the Haydena and (heir
assessment was accordingly made $31,000.
Last year It was $16,000 and the assessor's
return this year was $17,760.

NEW CAR SERVICE SYSTEM
Charges to Be Made T Day Instead
et Being; Baaed on
The per diem plan of charging and col
lecting for car service, which was agreed
to by the western roads some time sgo,
goes Into effect July 1. This
Innovation holds extraordinary Interest for
all the lines interested, as well as a few
others in different sections thst have not
adopted the system, but whose officials
are watching the movement with the ut
This Important Improvement sets aside
the mileage charging and collecting sys
tem, which was in vogue for so long. It
Is considered one of the greatest revolu
tions In the methods of freight affairs
that has been made In recent years. The
fact that It goes Into effect In the west
with a unanimous sentiment back of it In
sures some measure of success for It.
Two hundred members in the American
Railway association, representing the own
ership of about 1,670,000 freight cars have
gone Into this agreement. It is sstd, how
ever, that one important western line still
objects to the plan.
For one year at least the great majority
of the railroads of the entire country will
give the per dlera plan a fair trial. It
will devolve upon the car accountants and
car service officers to figure out the Infinite
number of details which will develop and
to provide for the numerous difficulties
foreseen and those not foreseen. The re
form is made in the Interest of economy,
the basis of most all such movements in
railroad affairs. It Is claimed for It that
it will reduce the complication and cost
of handling freight and increase the freight
earning capacity of the railroads. With
the operating and traffic managers in
hearty co-operation with the car service
officers and accountant clerks. It is believed
that all the obstacles to be encountered
can be met and vanquished and the new
method made a most profitable one within
the one year allotted for the test of its
Enormons Cost of Boer War.
Now that the end of the Boer war Is In
sight, England will proceed to count up the
cost, and will find It to have reached an

of money spent annually by those ra search

TAX MONEY ' ROLLsTn FAST
City Treasnrer Receives Aboat Fosr
Hnadred Thousand Dol
lars la a Day.
The prosperous people of Omaha paid
about $400,000 In city taxes yesterday, most
of which were for the current year, but
some for past years. On the same day and
the one preceding it . in 1901 they paid
$527,000 and that has stood as high-water
mark until the mighty Inflow of yesterday,
which completely eclipses all previous days
at the treasurer's office.
Beginning today all taxes become delin
quent and must bear penally Interest of
1 per cent per month. In advance. It Is
the policy of Treasurer A. H. Hennlngs
to keep as clean a board as Is practical and
for that reason he generated fourteen em
ployes from 7 o'clock last evening until
midnight and then left four others to work
until 7 o'qlock this morning. He said:
"I believe that our June collections of
this year will total $100,000 more than our
collections for the same month in 1901,
which were $745,000 and this notwith
standing that the total product of the levy
of 30 mills this year is only $1,128,484.95,
which Is $108,237.87 less than the $1,236,
722.82 produced by the 84-mlll levy of 1901.
"For the last three years we have
cleaned up warrants through July and been
able to pay cash for them for aome months
afterward Instead of having to register
them and allow them to draw their 7 per
cent per annum interest. Surely the sav
ing is justification of the policy. In a day
or two I will have a more detailed state-
tnent to give out."
If your brain won't work right and you
miss the snap, vim and energy that was
once yours, you should take Prickly Ash
Bitters. It cleanses the system and In
vigorates both body and brain.
Amid the many efforts put forth to stimu
late financial aid for the Auditorium Fund,
that of W. R. Bennett Co. today promises
to be one of the most Interesting. This
firm are never behind In responding to the
claims of citizenship and we have no doubt
the people of Omaha will turn out en-masse
and throng their magnificent store in their
eagerness to be among the winners of Au
ditorium stock tickets. W. R. Bennett .Co.
have shown a most magnanimous spirit and
an example worthy of all praise In being
the very first to Inaugurate a free distribu
tion of these tickets. We sincerely hope
that they will be gratified to the extent
at least of aeelng their house thronged from
basement to roof. 1

MRS. SIMET USES GUN AGAIN
This Time She Directs Shot at Her.
self, bat It Does Little
Mrs. Kate Slmet, who already has quite
a reputation as a gun fighter, had another
occasion to use her 38-callber revolver last
evening, but this time she aimed the shots
at herself. Because Kate'a husband, re
turning from labor, found her under the
Influence of liquor and abided her; then
did Kate climb wildly to the upper chamber
and take a shot at herself. But It wss only
the bleeps of her left arm which were
pierced. However, ' taking Into considera
tion the marksmanship displayed on a
former occasion, this was evidently an at
tempt at suicide. Mr. Bimet managed to
disarm bis wife and sent for Dr. J. A. Wil
liams. The Slmets live with their two chil
dren 4n a little story and a half cottage at
116 Hickory street.
Mrs. Slmet first became known through
her determined stand against one George
Baker on April 20, when she took nine
shots at the man without hitting him once.

Edwin A. Cooper of Little Falls, Minn.,

The parties In the case all live In Little
Falls,, where Schlensener waa the proprietor
of a hardware business and had consider
able of this world's goods. According to
Cooper's testimony Schlensener advanced
him money last January to go to Montana
to locate a claim. He went and remained
two weeks, and, finding that It was not the
proper time to locate, returned to Little
Falls. When he got back It was to find
his house deserted and his wife and daugh
A few days later, by finding a letter writ
ten to his wife, which she had left In
her deserted home, Cooper learned that
she was In Corning, N. Y. He went there
and learned that It was Schlensener who
had persuaded his wife to leave. In a
conversation with his wife, he said, she
told him that during his absence Schlen
sener had Induced her to go Into a wine
room where there were other men and
women and that after drinking two glasses
of wine she knew nothing until late In the
evening. She asked Cooper to forgive her
and the two were again united.

After several days of their second
honeymoon Mrs. Cooper again disappeared
Again Cooper got trace of her through
her negligence In not destroying notes
from Schlensener. Cooper found a tele
gram to his wife which said, "Meet me In
Cooper hastened there and appealed to
the police and Detective Monear was as
signed to the case. After several weeks
search Monear learned that the couple
bad gone to Omaha.
In the meantime the citizens of Little
Falls had become sympathetic and after
Schlensener bad made arrangements to sell
his property there, they made up a purse
to pay Cooper's way to Omaha and his
expenses while here. He and Monear came
here June 7. Some time later Cooper saw
his wife and Schlensener riding bicycles
on Sixteenth street. They were located
at a rooming house on North Sixteenth
street. Before an arrest could be made
they again disappeared.
Friday the detective again located them
In a bouse near Twentieth and Castellar
streets. The watched the house and saw
Schlensener and Mrs. Cooper appear at an
open window and caress each other. Cooper
went to the police Judge and made a com
plaint and Sergeant Whalen made the ar
rest. During her travels Mrs. Cooper
kept her little daughter with her and at
the time the arrest was made the little
one was playing In the yard.
Several letters which had been written by
Sohlensener to Mrs. Cooper, In which he
called her his "heart's blood," "honey bee"
and used many endearing terms, were Intro
duced as evidence.
Mrs. Cooper was put on the stand and
denied the material part of her husband's
testimony. She came to Omaha, she said
to act as Schleneener's housekeeper for $5
a week. Before she had completed her
testimony the court adjourned until Tues
day morning. Cooper has begun suit for
damages against Schlensener for $20,000 for

DUSKY QUEENJS RETICENT
Llllaokalanl Has Little to Say aa
She Passes Throaga
Lllnokallnl, former queen of the
Hawllan Islands, passed through Omsha
yesterday morning with her party on her
way from the east to Honolulu. In the party,
beside the ex-soveretgn, were these: Jo
seph Aea, private secretary to the queen;
John Amokn and Malla Heleluhl.
"We are on our return home after a
very pleasant trip through the eastern part
of the United 6tatea," said the venerable
ex-ruler of the Hawaii, to a reporter for
The Bee, speaking through her Interpreter.
Her Interpreter said she could not talk
English fluently, and at any rate preferred
to communicate through some one else.
On such occasions, however, the queen Is
exceedingly reticent, therefore all her in
terviews have a merit of brevity to com
mand them. Especially was this the case
yesterday. After assuring her visitor
that she was not In this country on busi
ness, had done or tried to do nothing
whatever about any crown lands while at
Washington, .and was merely over on a
pleaaure trip, she betook herself to her
state room and deigned no more to look
upon the newspaper man, except to open
the state room door wide enough once to
peep and see If the peraon had gone. Not
realizing the fruition of her hopes she
alammed the door and remained in her
room until the overland train bore her out
of the city.
"The queen Is In excellent health," said
her secretary, "snd she has enjoyed her
visit In the United States Immensely.
"No, I cannot speak as to her future
course or what her plans will be. She
wants nothing said upon that subject now.
We are most Interested at present In get
ting back home and . will start after a
week's visit in San Francisco."
