LINCOLN, Oct. 3. (Special.) Elwood
Mead, chief of tbe Irrigation investigation,
bu written a letter to Btate Engineer Dob
on, detailing some . interesting facts re
lating to his recent visit to the western sec
tion of the state. Among other things ho
"My recent rtslt to western Nebraska In
cluded tbe Irrigated lands along the North
Platte river and I was greatly Impressed
by tbe rapid agricultural development which
that section Is making and the Important
future which Is In store for It.
"To secure the b.st results, however, stor
age Is an Indispensable necessity. At the
time I was there the farmers were making
temporary dams In order to divert a larger
part of the water supply anil nearly all
that was coming down was In use. The
completion of the reservoirs wblch you
showed me. or others of similar character,
la the thing now needed to give stability
to the water supply and an Impulse to a
larger agricultural settlement.
"I wish you all success In your efforts
to secure this, because of the public bene
fits which will result therefrom."
Chlnatowna Ki-KInf Dead,
Wah Lee, the ex-kin of Lincoln China
men, will be burled Sunday with appropriate
ceremonies. The Chinaman died last
Wednesday In Kansas City. At one time be
was quite wealthy, but lost the greater part
of his money la a bank failure. The body
lies In state In a local undertaking room.
It la dressed In a long robe of Chinese make
and decoration and around the body are
scattered little bits of pasteboard, each
with four holes, the superstition being that
these will prevent the devil from working
his wiles. Wah Lee at one time professed
Christianity,' and led a number of celestials
Into the Methodist fold, but In recent years
returned to pagan rites.
A Secret Weddlnr.
Announcement was made today of the
wedding at Leavenworth. Kan., last Deco
ration day of Miss Emma Olllesple of this
city to Arthur M. Susong. western agent
of the Wheeler lumber & Bridge company
of Dee Moines. Mr. Susong was fearful that
fcla parents In Des Moines' would not look
with favor upon his marriage If broken to
them In advance and so be asked his bride
to keep it secret. This she all the more
readily did as she Is one of the experts
regularly engaged by the county to compile
the tax Hat. Miss Olllesple Is the daughter
of John Olllesple, first auditor of state for
VehraaVa, and has been prominent In the
.state work of the feminine adjuncts to

the Present Moating
HUMBOLDT, Neb., Oct. 3. (Special Tele
gram.) The slie of the crowd which as
sembled at the new Sarauelaon opera house
this evening to hear Hon. J. H. Mickey and
Congressman Burkett, surprised the people
themselves, aa thla section waa visited dur
ing the afternoon by a drlixllng rain, which
chilled everyone and made the roada very
sloppy. Tbe rain continued until after the
speaking waa over, but in spite of all the
townspeople turned out In large numbers
any many came In from the country. W. H.
Hogrefe, tbe republican nominee for repre
sentative, was present and made a abort
speech at the opening of the meeting. Im
pressing his hearers quite favorably. The
Callope quartet of Lincoln furnished some
catchy music, which kept the crowd In the
best of spirits. The talk of Hon. J. H.
Mickey was well received.
Congressman Burkett waa better known
and waa warmly greeted by numerous
friends and acquaintances in all parts of
the hall. His speech was delivered In his
usual pleasing style, completely devoid of
abuse, although a keen shaft of ridicule at
times helped to illustrate a point.
Mr. Mickey said In part:
"Every tax payer and cltlien la interested
In the disbursement of state moneys. The
legislature for the last several years has
appropriated In the neighborhood of $2,000,
000 for each blennlum, the greater part of
which la required to maintain the several
state Institutions. This enormous sum of
money Is raised by taxation. It is imper
ative that It be expended economically and
honestly. No contract for supplies for any
state Institution should be let except to the
lowest bidder who should bo compelled to
execute a bond to tbe state to faithfully
observe the terms of the contract. Such Is
the policy of good faith and business honor;
and I am glad to say that such has been
the strict policy and practice of the pres
ent republican administration. I do not
believe that money should be taken out of
the state treasury unless tbe state gets full
consideration for every dollar taken. Our
stato Institutions are maintained for the
benefit of tbe Inmates, wards of the state,
and not for tbe benefit and support of politi
cal favorites or relatives of tbe several
superintendents and their subordinates.
Business principles alone should govern the
management of these institutions.
"That our state revenues are In bad
shape, no one disputes, not from the fact
that our present law does not provide for
an adequate revenue but rather In the
fact that we are all, or nearly all, a lot
of tax shirkers and have allowed i com
mon consent a system of assessment of
property to be put Into practice that has
for yeara put ua down to such a low valu
ation, that in many school districts, towns,
cities, counties and even in the state. It
has been difficult to provide revenue suf
ficient to properly meet the needed ex
penses. When the levy is limited by statute
and the assessment Is 1-10 to 1-20 of the
real value, an Indebtedness la sure to ac
cumulate. Our constitution provides that
the Indebtedness of tbe state shall not ex
ceed $100,000. and yet the fact alarea us
In the face that we have allowed our liabil
ities to increase at the rata of about 1100.
000 per year for many years, and today
we face an Indebtedness of about 13,000,000.
Tbla we have borrowed from the achool
fund and owe It today. There la a very
grave doubt in the minda of many about tho
legality of this course, and It la evident that
this matter must be given attention and
the fund replaced. The question arises, how
shall we do It? Our assessment roll reveals
the fact that in 1890 our total valuation of
all property assessed was 1184,770,304.54.
This year, 1902, the assessed valuation was
179.976,567.81. being $4,793,736.73 less than
In 1900. Tbe mere quoting of these figures
showa that something Is wrong either in
our revenue laws or In their application,
or both; probably both.
"Everyone knowa our property has in
creased in value In the last twelve years,
and yet a large decrease is shown, when in
real fact the valuation has at least doubled.
Assessment of Railroads.
"In 'he assessment of property, the
property of railroads and other corporations
should be assessed at such ratea aa will In
sure their bearing their full share of tbe
burdena of tbe state. More than this we
have no right to ask; less than this would
be unfair and unjust to all other classes of
property. The republican state convention
used tbe following language In thla ques
tion: The franchises, as well aa the tangible
property of all corporations, should be as
sessed so as to bear their Just and due
shares of the cost of government, state,
county and municipal, the same as other
taxable property aa contemplated by the
"That la the position of the republican
party upon the question. I accept it aad
stand upon It- It seems to me that the true
basts for tbe assessment of property Is what
It la actually worth In the market and not
simply what it would cost to replace at the
present time, nor what It originally cost
"Tbe question of bow tho permanent
achool funda of the atate may be safely in
vested Is one of the most perplexing ones
with which executive officera have to deal.
It la of vital Importance to tbe achool In
terests and also would be a great relief to
the state treasurer it It were possible to
keep this fund Invested in such a way as to
leave but a email balance in hla handa at
any time. Under the limitations of our
present cocstltution, this is extremely dif
ficult to do. Tbe present treasurer, with
an increased amount in the permanent
achool fund haa been able to keep an
average uninvested balance of $31,059 less
than his fusion predecessor."
