late now to go Into the matter and have

treasurers ready for the latter to begin
suits which be would have to do befora
July 1, if at all.
The board had asked the opinion of the
county attorney and had It read by the

the matter was referred to committee of
the whole, which la to report at the next
meeting, (Saturday. County Attorney Eng
lish In his opinion said:
"Under the provisions of section 49 of the
act It Is made optional with the county com.
ralssloners to enforce the law or not. If
It Is youf desire to put the act Into opera
tion ao far as the county Is concerned,
during the present year, your board should
Immediately adopt a resolution declaring
that for the year 1903 you elect to enforce
the collection of delinquent taxes and as
sessments on real eatate under the pro
visions of said act Instead of under the
general revenue act of the atate.
- Doty of Coantr Treasurer.
"It thereupon becomes the duty of the
county treasurer on or before May 15 to

CHICKENS ARE FLYING HIGH
Present Price of Live Poultry Greater
- Than I anal at Thla Time
The Omaha poultry market la higher than.
It has been in many years and buyers pro
fess to be In the dark as to the price which
will rule for chickens before the new sup
ply comes upon the market. The present
price of 114 cents a pound for live chick
ens has never been equalled In the city be
fore at this season of the year.
The reason for the high price of poultry-
Is attributed to the high price of eggs a
year ago. At that time the packing housea
were heavy buyers and millions ot cases
of eggs went Into cold storage, at prices
ranging from 12 to 14 cents a dozen. It
cost nearly It cents to bold these eggs dur
ing the winter and many were sold around
Easter at 13. cents a dozen. The loss has
been estimated at nearly $500,000 to the
packers and the present high price of poul
try must be added to the result to show the
full effect of the last '.'boom" in the egg

from uniting two others with them and

B. H. ROBISON, PRESIDENT
Offer a Few Suggestions To the People
of the Great and O rowing
THE BANKERS RESERVE LIFE
In An Interview Which It Will Tar
All Insurers and Woald Be In
aarera to Read..
"Yes, I believe the Bankers Reserve Life
Association will have 110.000.000 at risk
upon selected lives In the west by the close
of 1903." said B. M. Roblson, president of
that vigorous and successful life Insurance
"You see the people of tho west learned
a lesson during the panic which they are
not likely to fora-et. Practically all our
savlnas drifted to the money centers of
the east during' the prosperous year pre
"We were not only large borrower, pay
ing Immense interest charges, but prac
tically all our insurance investments were
with eastern companies.
"They collected $15,000,000 In premiums
during ten yesrs. This large sum was made
up of the savings ot our policy holders.
The bulk of It was loaned back to us at high
rates of Interest. In other words, we were
paying interest on our own money.
"This constituted a double draft upon our
resources. We first sent our savlnga east.
We then paid Interest on the same money
and sent that east. When the panic came
we were called upon not only to repay the
mortgages, but the Interest charge a well.
We all know what happened.
"The organization ot great fiduciary ln
stltutions In our midst became a commer
cial necessity. We must have within our
own control the surplu which balances
trade and prevent financial stringency.
"In these years of great plenty we can
hoard our own aavlngs and when times of
distress come the simple process of trans
ferring our money from one pocket to the
other will make panic less destructive.
"The Banker Reserve Life Association
sends no money to the Atlantic seaboard.
Its surplus remains In this state and finan
cial cataclysms cannot put it Into money
vaults where no benefits can be enjoyed
"On this theory of home patronage we are
Inviting western people to help us while we
help then In return.
"It Is a straight business proposition, and
the people are becoming enlightened upon
the subject. Hence the Bankera Reserve
Life write more business in Nebraska, it
home state, where it is best known, than
"Nebraskans especially should place their
lite Insurance in the Banker Reserve Life."
