LINCOLN, July IL (Special.) This wu

b'flnAjnc of the annual taak of rerlewlnc
and equalising the aasessments mad In the
various eountlei for the purpose of taxation,
but as only one member of the State Board
of Equalisation was In the city no headway
could be made. Auditor Weston opened
the record, noted the absence of Governor
Savage and Treasurer Stutter, and ordered
an adjournment for no specified time. It Is
asserted that a tueellug will bo held as soon
as the three members can conveniently come
Aafew of the eountlea hart thus far, tailed
to report the assessment made this year,
lut from the figures received it Is estimated
that the grand assessment will be ap
proximately $5,000,000 greater than last year.
Douglas county will give $3,000,000 of this
increase. Lancaster county's assessment Is
the lowest made slnca 1888. The total of
all counties. Including the railroad, tele
graph and Pullman property, will not be
far from 1T,000,000.
The statute under which the board will
proceed provides "That it shall be the duty
of said board to examine the various county
assessments and to decide upon the rate of
the state tax, the state school tax and the
state sinking fund tax, to be levied for the
current year, together with any other
general or special taxes required by law to
ba levied." '
Big; Bale at Farm Maealaerr
There has been an unprecedented sale of
farm machinery and implements from Lin
coln this year, which bespeaks the prosper
ity of the farmer and the good, condition of
his crops. These sales are not confined to
any particular section, county or district,
but extend throughout the agricultural
portion of the state, so far as It lies within
the territory of the Lincoln distributing
houses. This territory includes for msny of
the Implement houses nearly all of the
counties south of the Plstte river and a
mall portion of Kansas.
In Lincoln this year are nine dealers In
threshing machines, while last year there
were only three who, sold this class of farm
machinery. One Implement firm has con
tructed a new warehouse at a cost of
nearly $25,000 and several others have put
up buildings of smaller dimensions.
"Sales are about three times as great as
they were ten years ago," said C. E. Haynle,
general agent of the McCormlck company,
"and they are steadily Increasing. I think
It la safe to say that In all lines of farm
machinery the sales this year are larger
than they ever hare beent Last year was
a good ona, but I think this will beat it."
"Our territory Includes everything south
of the river and there la not one section of
it where the crops have failed. There has
been local damage from the heavy rains.
but I think the general percentage, on the
small grain, will te less than 10 per cent.
That Is a small loss when It is considered
that the acreage of wheat Is much more
than 10 per cent greater than last year. The
yield Is good, better than the average, In
In keeping with an agreement formed
several years ago the larger Omaha and
Lincoln implement dealers will not display
their machinery at the state fair this year,
The Lincoln dealers will Invite, all visiting
fsrmers to their warehouses, where they
will be prepared to show their machinery,
but only a few of them will maintain d!s
plsys on the fair grounds. .
' New Rallaar en Banks.
There seems to bo a wide difference of
opinion aa to whether state banks are re
oulred by law to file their articles of In
corporation with both the secretary of
the State Banking Board and the secretary
of state, or merely with the former, as has
been customary In the past. The attorney
general. In an opinion given for the bank
ing board, holds that they must file In
both places. Some of the banking Instltu
tlons already organised have heeded-thts
ruling by having a duplicate copy of their
articles filed In the secretary of state's
office, but the others are content with the
authority given them by the one depart
ment. ' .
Secretary Royse has notified each state
bank of the attorney general's ruling, but
as It calls for such a radical departure
from tha established custom it is not likely
to be generally observed. Former Attorney
General Smyth ruled that the filing of artl
cles with tha banking board waa sufficient
to satisfy the demands of the law.
The question has never been raised la a
formal way and It is therefore impossible
for the secretary of 'the banking board or
any other official to determine definitely
the exact status of a bank which has
recorded Us articles la only one office. Mr.
Royse urgea bankers to be on the safe side
by completing their record In both depart
meats. He is sntorclng the attorney gen
eral's ruling as to all new banks chartered,
but Is without authority to do the same
against those already doing business.
Articles' 61 incorporation of these new
banks were recorded in the secretary of
tate'a office: .
The Bank of Trumbull, Trumbull, Clay
county: capital stock. $5,000: Incorpora
tors, William Clover and Theodore Glover.
The Biistow State bank. Brlstow, Boyd

WEST POINT, Neb., July It (Special.)
The vagaries of taxation are aptly ex-
emplined In tha return of the county clerk,
showing the totals of the 1903 assessment
of Cuming county. Just published: Railroad
property, approximately thirty-seven mlHs,
Is assesed at 1144.688; telegraph property,
$3,28$; telephone property, $2,700.
According to the returns there are no
franchises la ths county and only twenty-
ore bicycles, whilst In a population of 16.-
000 persons there are only SKI watches and
clocks, showing that only ene person in
every fifty la tha happy possessor of one of
these useful articles, of the average value
of $1.30. Of dlamonda and Jewelry In tho
county the assessors were only able to
find $6$ worth.
Whilst Cuming county Is no worse in
this, respect than many of the neighboring
eountlea, yet an examination of the absurd
ities of these returns leads to the Irresist
ible conclusion that the revenue laws of
this state are badly in need of revision.

ONE BIG UNION TO CARRY ON STRIKE
Men Now Oat Deeldo that Closer Or.
STaalsntlon Is Necessary est Will
Get Together to Better
Tho amalgamation of the bollermakers',
machlnl&ts' and blacksmiths' unions Into
one tcderstlon as a means of securing a
more effective organlsstton with which to
combat the Union Pacific in the present
atrlke and preserve and protect the inter
ests of the three crafts in the future, ia
the latest and most Important step contem
plsted by the strikers from the Union Pa
cific shops. Ths plsn for Instituting this
central body has beea discussed among
the strikers for some time and has been,
It Is understood, approved and decided
upon. All that needa to be dona is ths
placing of this plan Into execution.
Tha bollermakers and machinists are
more thoroughly organized on the Union
Pacific than are the blacksmiths, both tho
former crafts hsving district lodges and
all their local lodges being represented on
the executive committee, which harmonizes
and facilitates the Interests of all. But
ths blacksmiths have not extended their
line of organisation to include a district
lodge, neither are their local lodges suffi
ciently cared for by committees, which are
regarded aa essential elements in ths sue
cessful operation of a strlks. Owing to
the deficient organization of the black
smiths, therefore, tho work of uniting tha
three bodies Into one central federation
necessarily will be done by slow degrees,
but It Is ssld to be the intention to carry
this , plan through with as little delay as
Blacksmiths Will Foras a District.
The machinists began their strike here
under the direction of their district officers',
as did also the bollermakers whose dis
trict president is Edwsrd Kennedy, chief
executive also of ths local lodge of boller
makers. Prior and Incidental to the forma
tion of the federation the blacksmiths win
organize a district lodge, whsae officers
will, it is expected, work hand in hand
with the district officers from' the other
crafts, and the three will be united under
the regulations of the federation.
Information was obtained yesterday
through the bollermakers that the Union
Pacific had employed Charles Hemple,
foreman of the Burlington shops at Have
lock, to come to Omaha and Install the
piecework system. It Is stated that Mr.
Hemple Is retained at a salary of $200 a
month. James J. Clair Is at present fore
man at the ahops and It Is not known
whether or not he will be displaced by the
new man or will also be retained.
The strikers have decided upon another
new method for waging their fight. They
will employ a staff, of camera pickets,
whose duty it will be to photograph every
man who goes Into ths Union Pacific yards
to work during the present troubles or
who may apply for work or participate tn
any way In opposing the interests of the
strikers. They fed that the thought of
future use of these photos may deter many
strike breakers and have a valuable effect
for the union men.
The four men on the big hammer in the
blacksmith shops In Omaha struck yester
day. They were at the meeting of the
blacksmiths Sunday and signified their dis
position to quit, although when ona of the
quartet was asked If they had quit or
were going to he replied that they had no
thought of striking. i-.m--From
Cars to Pattern Shops.
The force of nonunion men In tha Omaha
shops wss transferred yesterday from tha
'cars fn which they have beea lying1 Into
the new pattern shop building, which haa
been conveniently arranged and equipped
for their especial comfort. The lower
floor becomes their dining room and on the
upper floor they will sleep. The building
Is Urge and airy and both apartmenta
ought to be very comfortable.
Radical counter claims are being made by
the Union Pacific officials and the strikers.
Neither side seems to be at all Impressed
with the assertions of the other and the
fight still proceeds with apparently no
sign of abatement. "It's merely a waiting
game," as one man expressed it yesterday
An official of the company sal::
"Strikers are still applying to us tor
work. One came Saturday and ssld his
esourees wero exhausted and that he
must earn aomo money. He thought he
would return to work tomorrow, and was
sura ha would hare done ao long ago had
It not beea for the restraint of tho unton.
There are others who feel the same way.
The only trouble la that, while many of
tha men want to coma back to work, none
feel like taking tha lead In making a'break.
But a break will be made and information
haa reached us that It may come about the
middle of this week."
Graoo Says It's Absnrd.
What absurdity It Is for any official to
make auch a statement aa this," said
Samuel H. Grace, secretary of the machin
ists' executive committee. Why there Is
not the least suggestion of a break In our
ranks and the officials of the Union Pacific
know it or ought to. Our men are stronger
In their convictions today than they have
ever been and they will never go back to
work for the Union Pacific until they get
the concessions they are after. Our ranks
have not been broken, but are as much
Intact today ss when this fight begsn."
President Kennedy of the local boiler-
mskrrs' union said:
Well, that la a cheerful view for the
company to take; ao cheerful, tn fact, that
It makea me laugh. Why, man, there is
not a bollermaker who would go back to
work for the Union Pacific under any con
ditions other than thoss for wntcn we are
contending. Instead of contemplating any
thing of this kind, we are laying plans for
a more aggressive fight, determined not to
ley down until we have won completely."
Officials of the Union Pacific aay the
working foicea of the bollermakera and ma
chlnlsts have been lncresaed at Omaha and

the effect would be. I commenced taking
It according to directions and In few days
I ssw that It waa helping me. I used tlio
fifty-cent bottle and then bought two more
