. Fi-ht with Gil ( nmpur.
Far three years the ' Lincoln Gas com
pany has not paid any city taxes. It has
avoided this by the simple expedient of
appealing. to tho courts from the assess
ment of the Board of Equalization. The
fart was that the company has been the
prey of stock Jobbers and now that the
bondholders have been compelled to take
over the property they are trying to secure
a settlement with the city.
The council listened last night to a long
debate on the queatlon, 'but by a tie vote
decided to refuse the offer of the company
to agree on $200,000 h i valuation. The
members who opposed acceptance assert
that the company waa but recently sold for
$800,000,' and that Its property and fran
chises are easily worth that sum.'
The company has a profitable lighting con
tract with the city and s a result of the
controvtrsy an effort wifl be made to sub
mit at the next election a proposition to
Issue $65,000 In bonds for the building of
municipal .lighting plant.

TOO, GREAT EXPENSE
Nat tha Reaaoa.
It la not because Pyramid Pile Cure la so
xpenslve that many people decline to give
It a trial, but because they find It too great
a tax on their credulity to believe tbat tha
published letters bearing testimony to the
merit of this remedy are' genuine and bona
Ode; especially to those who have realized
the suffering incident to piles la it incred
ible that anyone who has been afflicted
twenty-five and thirty years with the worst
forma of protruding piles should be cured
by the application of a simple remedy, when
their physician has assured them that the
only relief Is In a surgical operation.
This ia rightfully viewed with dread by all
those afflicted, as it means at the least a
great shock to the nervous system, with
mora than a possibility of utter collapse
and death; In the majority of cases, too.
there Is. a return of the complaint, owing to
tha fact that tha cause Is not removed.
The proprietors of Pyramid Pile Cure
agree to forfeit one thousand dollars to
anyone who will show a single published
toaiimonlal to be not genuine and unso
licited; this latter feature ts most gratify
ing. Inasmuch aa these letters are written
solely out of gratitude, and with the hope
that those who are afflicted as the writers
have been may learn tbat relief Is at hand,
at a comparatively trifling expense. Pyra
mid Pile Cure Is for sals by druggists at
fifty cents a package, or will be mailed by
the makers to any address upon receipt of
Mr. Wm. Llchtenwalter. head of the larg
est printing house in Canton. Ohio, says:
"It Is with the utmost pleasure and satis
faction that I can aay I believe I am cured
of protruding and bleeding piles, after suf
fering mere than twenty-live years. I have
been la bed for two weeks at a time. I have
not suffered In the least for over a year,
and I used only three fifty cent boxes of
Pyramid pile Cure. I advise every person
suffering with this distressing and painful
complaint to gtvs this remedy a trial. I
have every confidence In It." Write the
Pyramid Drug Co. Marshall. Mich., for thstr
book en the causes and cure of piles.
the contention between Andrew Rosewater
and J. B. Riley power canal enterprise!
will be decided aa soon as tb governor re
turns from bis visit to St. Louis. It Is

claims to the waters of the Platte will be
reached fhe last of the current week or the

WASHINGTON. Bept. 30. The weather
bureau's weekly summary of crop conditions
la as follows:
As a whole the week was very wet In
the districts west of the Rocky mountains
and temperatures generally above normal
except over the middle Rocky mountain
slope, wbere It was moderately cool. While
the excessive rains interrupted farm work
and delayed the maturing of late crops, they
proved favorable for germination of fall
sown grain and placed the soil In fine con
dition1 for plowing and seeding.
No damage resulted from frosts, which
were confined to the central and northern
Rocky mountain districts, and extreme north
Psclfic regions. The general conditions on
the Pacific coast were favorable, although
rain Is needed in eastern Oregon.
The weather has been very unfavorable for
maturing late corn In the central valleys
and lake region, especially over the north
ern portion of these districts, and the re
ports Indicste that corn in shock has been
considerably damaged by dampness and
mold over a wide area and that much of the
crop In the upper lake region and Missouri
valley will not be marketable.
Injnry to Cotton.
Reports of injury from rain to open
cotton are very general throughout tho
belt with the exception of the Carolinas
and portions of Texss and sprouting and
rotting In bolls are largely reported, es
pecially In the central districts. Picking,
though much Interrupted, Is well advanced
and is nearlng completion In some dis
tricts. Late cotton in central and north
ern Texas Is making rapid growth, but
Vlll not mature unless frosts are un
usually late and under these conditions a
light top crop may also be gathered In
Alabama. A fine crop of sea island cot
ton Is promised in South Carolina.
But little. If any change In the apple
situation would Indicate the crop being
light In the middle Atlantic atates and
Ohio valley, with more favorable condi
tions in the upper lake region and Mis
souri valley, One yields of good quality
being gathered In some atates.
While plowing for fall seeding is much
behind In portions of the Missouri val
ley, this work has made good progress
