The Nebraska Real Estate association baa
gone on record In favor of tax reform. At
yesterday's session of the annual con
vention of the association the following
resolution was adopted:
Whereaa, The present revenue laws of
the state of Nebraska should be amendud
to embody the following pro virions: First
That the property of railroads within the
corporate limits of cities and villages shall
be valued and ajsessrd by the local as
sessors on the same basis nt other prop
erty within the taxing district. Second
That county and municipal boards of equal
isation be empowered to place on the as
sessment rolls all property within the juris
diction at Us fair ch value. Third That
the 8'ate Foarj cf Equal si;lon shall equal

counties of th atat by brtnainB county
valuations to their fair rash value a a
common standard, when they find this has
not alrady bren done, irnklng th stuts

Keaolvrd. That to the end that these sec
tions of the revenue law be so amended
this convention hereby pledges Its support
of Its members to urse.ths representatives
In the leKls.atur n th various districts to
Another resolution adopted favor the
publication of the agricultural. Industrial
and manufacturing resources of the state,
Resolved, That the iensisture oe re
quested to so amend the present statistical
law as to require complete an adequate
crop reporta from all of the counties of the
state and such other statistics as may be
called for by the department of the com
missioner of labor, under such restrictions
as th legislature may Impose, such sta
tistics to be compiled and published not
later than December 16 of each year, and
that an appropriation of $10,000 annually
be made to defray the expenses of sume.
Other Reaolatloaa Adopted.
The convention also adopted resolutions
requesting the repeal of the law requiring
contracts for the aale of real estate to be
expressed in writing, the enactment of a
valid tax deed law, the amendment of the
mortgage foreclosure and tenant laws, ex
pressing appreciation ot th Irrigation
work of the federal government, and op
posing the general leasing of public lands.
The president announced the legislative
commute as follows: W. O. Ure. Omaha:
F. M. Rubles, Broken Bow; J. W. McDon

The luncheon at Swift's waa served In
the dining room over the offices of the com
pany, which has a seating capacity of
about 200, and almost the entire capacity
It was 1 o'clock when President Conk
ling called the banqueters to order and In
troduced E. A. Benson, who was toast
master. W. L. Selby assisted In arrang
ing the banquet. He propoied a toast,
"The Swift Company," which was re
sponded to by W. L. Selby and P. D.
Manchee. the manager of the local plant.
"Nebraska Corn Is King" was the toast
responded to by Peter Jansen of Janaen.
He said In part: "Examine a map of the
United States and you will find that the
so-called corn belt la fenced In, so to
apeak the eastern part of Nebraska and
Kanaas forming the western boundary.
With the ever-Increasing consumption of
this golden grain those who own a small
section of this cornfield may congratulate
themselves. I predict that it will be sel
dom that corn will sell at less than 20
cents a bushel. Notwithstanding the high
prices corn Is going Into consumption, and
I believe that the holdings in first hands
will not be more than 600,000.000 bushels,
against normal stock ot 600,000,000 to 700,-
I Smith oa Irrla-atloa.
S. C. Smith of Beatrice spoke on "Some
Impressions of the Last Irrigation Con
gress and the Reservoir System," saying:
"This association at Its first convention en
dorsed the present Irrigation law. This fact
Is mentioned to encourage further resolu
tions along desired lines. The last irri
gation congress was a distinguished body
of men, consisting of congressmen, govern-
ment representatives and business men.
' They were familiar with the subject of Ir
rigation. It waa the judgment ot (he more
thoughtful men that the passage ot the
present law did not relieve them of re
possibility and that a campaign of educa
tion is as important now aa before the law
was passed. The resident of the cities
I must learn the benefits to accrue to him
ill a will make a bom upon the irrigated
land; the ranchman must learn the rights
of the people tear down his fences and
conduct his business on other lines. The
land to be occupied by the homesteader Is
but 180 acres, so that the only advantage
to be directly gained is through Occupying
the land. Our thanks are due to those who
forced lta passage, at the head ot whom I
recognize Theodora Roosevelt.
"The present leasing bill is likely to
nullify the law, as it embraces In Its terms
all ot the government land. It Is incumbent
upon all citizens to see that the Irrlga
tlon law has a fair trial. It has been dem
onstrated that all smooth, arable, arid
land can be reclaimed. Tbs government
owns over 635.000,000 acres of land, and it
Is estimated that at least 100,000.000 acres
ars susceptible to irrigation."
tieaeral Stock latereats.
"The General 8tock Interests" was the
toast responded to by W. J. C. Kenyon,
general manager ot the stock yards. He
said in part: "There is one thing I want
to aay to the real estate dealers, and that
Is that the growth ot South Omaha Is due
to their work. It Is as easy to sell lots tor
3500 as It Is at 30. Five years after South
Omaha was established we returned to the
assessor $1,750,000: this year th assessed
value is 118.000,000."
Of the packing Interests Mr. Kenyon said:
"In the next Ave years we will pass Chi
cago. Ic the state you gentlemen can give
us great asslstancs it you will help us get
business. Omaha is not 'fernnist' th en
tire state. Th packing houses are part of
the stats of Nebraska. They were put her
to handl the stock from this part of th
country. These Industries hav so - in
creased that w employ 24 I per cent ot all
the wage earners In the state. I am not
going to burden you with figures, but I
want to rail your attention to the fact that
South Omaha is a part of th state, and
when legislation affecting its Industries are
broached in Lincoln you affect th greatest
Interest In the state."
Boaqaet to tha Ho;.
"The Apostrophe to the Hog The Hog
Rules," by Alex O. Charlton, was the hit of
th day. Th address was delivered to a
hog one specially arranged and prepared.
Th apostrophe closed with the placing of
a wreath upon the brow of the hog.
After the apostrophe to the hog Henry T.
Clarke spoke of the growth of the country
since he came to the state forty-eight years
Willis Cadwell of Broken Bow presented
the matter of advertising the state, offering
to subscribe to a fund for the purpose of
setting the resources of the stats before
the people. He asked how many would
contribute 35 to pay the expenses ot a press
bureau. The suggestion was received with
cheers and $70 was raised to start the fund.
The president appointed S. C. Smith of
Beatrice, W. H. Green of Omaha and U D.
Richards of Fremont as a committee to
present to th secretary of the Interior tht
resolutions relating to artesian wells
adopted at th morning- session.
After a vote ot thanks to the Omaha
