Totals
At 1:30 yesterday afternoon members of the
Omaha Real Estate erchange received word
from Lincoln that tbe State Board of Equal
isation has given Douglas county what tbe
exchange asked a levy ot 4.5 miffs. ' The
state levy last yesr was 7.175 mill. v
The county levy this year Is 16 mills, aa
against 17.1 last year, so that If ths
report from Lincoln be true the total levy
is 19.5 mills against 24 33-40 last year, or
practically a reduction ot 6 mills. The
city levy was reduced from 83 mills to 30.
Douglas county had a delegation before
the stats board both Monday and Tussday.
It comprised Attorney J. H. Mcintosh,
County Attorney George Shields snd. ss
witnesses. F. H. Myers ot tbs Benson
Myers firm, Thomas 8. Boyd, formsrly land
examiner for the Anthony Loan and Truat
company, and F. J. Fitzgerald of the R. C.
Peters company, thess three as experts on
fsrm lands; Fred .Weed, W. O. Urs and
John N. Frenxer as experts on city lots.
Ths testimony of these, each of the first
three being obliged to go over the etats
map county, by county and answer half a
dosen questions sach from members ot
the board, occupied most . ot tbe
first day. Ths second day affidavits from
residents ot four different counties were
read, and Deputy State Labor Commis
sioner Watson called to strengthen ths
showing that Douglas county Is assessed
on a one-sixth value while other ar as
sessed only on a . tenth, and that it should,
thsrefors, have a 40 per cent less levy.
After ths testimony Shields briefly and
Mcintosh fully dlscusssd tbs propriety of
this course, showing that an equalisation
board must equalise, regardless of whether
or not the revenue to the atat prove ade
quate. They showed how manifestly un
fair It would bs to hold up Douglaa county
Juat for the benefit of the stats treasury,
Ons of tbe delegation says that the state,
board was very chilly and aomewhat scorn
ful at first, but was won evsr In the
course of the second day.

DES MOINES, July 80. (Special.) Under
conditions In msny respects most suspicious
and yet on a day when the heat In a great
hall waa almost Intolerable, the representa
tives of the republican party of Iowa to
tbs number of more than 1,200 gathered to
day to renew tbelr allegiance to tbe princi
ples of the party and name the candidates
for stabs office required under the lew. It
was a genuine harmony meeting, a gather
ing in many respects like other great re
publican conventions in Iowa and yet lack
ing somewhat in th Intense Interest which
la generated by bard contests for - place
usual In republican conventions In Iowa. It
was a foregone conclusion that the drat Bvs
on the ticket would be named by acclama
tion. A few days sgo It wss made plain
that tbe auditor of state would also be
named by acclamation. There were but
three contest for place. These were en
tirely personsl. Ths chief Interest wss 13
sn effort to have th party reverse Itself on
tho platform of last year. Thl also provsd
a nine an round, do It waa not possible
for this convention to be as Imporuat aa
some other conventions of the party in re
cent years.
There were a number of distinguished
statesmen present. Speaker Henderson
came in and was received with great ap
plause. Secretary Wilson of th Roosevelt
cabinet waa almllarly honored, and Sena
tors Allison and Dolltvsr and member of
congress were 'well received. ' There waa In-
tne. applause for Governor Cummlne wheat
he appeared. The convention waf enthusi
astic all through, the music waa good, the
spirit manifested most excellent,
Smith Make a Hit.
Judge Walter I. Smith of Council Bluffs,
congressman from ths Ninth district, made
a hit with his speech as temporary chair
man. He spoke especially of the tariff anl
trusts and placed hlmaelf distinctly In linn
with progressive thought In this stats. He
waa generously applauded for hla strong re
marks and he spoke with a strong voice
and deep earnestness which commanded
rapt attention.
Speech of Chairman Smith.
Hon. Walter 1. Smith, - temporary chair
man, aald In part:
The republican party Is dedicated to pro
moting the honor and glory of th repub
lic and the freedom, prosperity, moral well-
being and happiness ot all Its children,
whether they dwell at horn or in th
islands beyond the sea that have been
added to its territory.
we are proud 01 an ine greet acmavs
ments of the party In the past four years,
of the union saved, of slaves made free, of
free labor better paid and more constantly
employed than In other day, of greater
prosperity ana or increased weaitn, or tn
wide diffusion of knowledg and happiness
among all the people.
To the end that men may be kept In all
parte of tbe world seeking contracts to be
eriormea oy American moor, as wen
or manv other reaaona. it is essential that
great corporations exist, and no intelligent
student of the public Interests could wish
to destroy them; but msny of these great
corporations essential to our common wel
fare have become In practical effect and
ara now commonly called trusts: hava
slesed advantage of the necessity for their
existence ana used tne power conferred
upon them for the public good to oppress
and burden ths people; have established
prices for their commodities out of due re
lation to the cost of production, and hava
otherwise abused their high privileges. Th
republican party 1 determined that these
organizations, the creature ot th people
for the public good, shall not become th
masters of the people.
The republican party is wedded to th
general principles of a protective tariff, but
not to any specino acneauie. 'ine larilT
should be revised from time to time to
meet changing conditions, and th reduc
tion or a rate or placing an article on tn
free list, is no evidence, mucn less no con-
fesalon, that the original rat wa wrong
when made. The republican party will
modify tne isrinr wnenever new conditions
reoulre such modification, snd If in any
specino case a change In th tariff will
tend to relieve tne people irom tne opprea
slon of a trust, without undue Injury to
American laboi, trat cnange ought to b
made. Revision of the tariff, tending as
thev do to unsettle business, should onlv
be undertaken wien the wrong to be cor
rected Is so serious that the Improvement
contemplated will compensate for what
ever disturbance to business will result
from such revision.
It a trust buys its rsw material abroad
or buys It at home of producers In whom
it has no Interest the removal ot the tariff
on such raw material would not hurt but
benefit the truat. To illustrate, tbe removal
ot the tariff on cattle, ir it had any effect,
would help, not hurt, the beef trust by
simply enabling It to buy cattle cheaper, to
the detriment of the American farmer, but
would not necessarily In any way relleva
the people from oppression, because th
chief complaint against the truat evil rest
upon the contention that it can and doe
by its power hold the price of what It sells
out ot due relation to the cost ot produc
tion. When a trust has so fsr developed Its In
duetry ss to be able to compete In the
market places of the world, and when Its
domestic competitors have not so far de
veloped their business as to be abls to so
compete, a removal of the tariff would de
atroy, not the trust, but the competitors of
th trust, and thus maks th monopoly
complete.
To Regelate the Treats.
Where a trust controls ths production ef
sn article here snd the foreign production
of the same article Is controlled by snother
trust the removal of the tariff would serve,
not to release our people from the clutches
of a trust, but to simply transfer them
from the clutches of a domestic trust, com
pelled by tariff law to produce its good
here with domestic labor, to the clutrhae of
a foreign trust that would produce Its goods
abroad with foreign labor.
If these three propositions ar correot It
sppeara that the proposed plan of the
democrats thst the tariff should ba re
moved from all articles ths product of
trusts is on a par with the wisdom of
democratic statesmanship generally, and
that the demncratlo party would, if It had
the power, injure, perns ps, Incidentally,
some of the trusts, at the earns tlms fatten
others by Increasing their already unjust
profits, rob ths American laboring gaan of
