LINCOLN, Neb., May 2. (Special.) Thi
Etate Beard of Equalization will meet Tues
day, May .", instead of on Monday, May 4
a announced the first of the week. The
meeting at this time Is for the purpose of
canvassing the returns made by the varloui
railroads of tho state and determining the
valuation for assessment. In July the board
will again meet to equalize the levy of the
various counties. The members of the
board. Governor Mickey, Treasurer Mor
tcnten and Auditor Weston have not yet
returned from St. Louis where, with the
other state officers, they went to attend the
dedication of the Louisiana Purchase Ex
position. Governor Mickey Is expected
home tonight and the others will be ber
The coming meeting of the board will be
one of (be most Important ever held la thr
state and more Interest Is being taken in
It than Is usual. The great question at is
sue Is the one that for years has been be
fore the people of Nebraska whether rail
roads shall be allowed to continue to get
the benefit and protection of government
without paying a Just share of the taxes of
the state Heretofore they have escaped
The list board, composed of Governor
Savage, Tretaurer Stuefer snd Auditor Wes
ton again ' exempted the" railroads from a
large share of their taxes, notwithstanding
the fact that a determined effort was made
by friends of equal taxation to prevent It;
notwithstanding that Incontrovertible evi
dence waa placed before the board to show
that the railroads were escaping the major
part of their taxes. But this failure on the
Tart of those who favor the equal distri
bution of tl.e lurdens of the etate has not,
they say, satisfied them that the state board
treated the people fairly. The loss of that
battle, they say, has made them more de
termined than ever to secure the Just tax
ation of corporation property.
Campaign of Kd oration.
The campaign of education that has been
waged since the meeting of the last board
with Just as much vigor as before and tho
fact that John N. Baldwin utterly failed In
debate to shun thai the ra'iroads were pay
ing their Just share of taxes, say the frlendd
of equal taxation, will bear fruit. Another
point they believe will be in their favor Is
the fact that this board will be composed
of two new members, one of whom has de
clared for the taxation of railroads, and
the other has declared himself as favoring
the taxation of all property according to
The fight last year was made partially
to get the ataie board in making up the
assessment roll to include in it the value
of railroad and telegraph franchises. Not.
withstanding evidence waa offered to the
board to ahow the constitutionality of this
the franchises escaped. What the present
board will do of course is not known at
this time. The board . last year held ex
ecutive sessions and at these sessions rail
road attorneys delivered their arguments.
Whether this boaM will receive argument
behind cloaed doors Is not known and aa all
the members are out of the city it cannot
be ascertained at this time.
Th board last year did increase the as
aessment of railroad property to a certain
extent,- but far below the figures expected
by the people. The total Increase was
1165.880.40. It Is expected that both the
people and the railroads will be well rep
resented before this board and aome in
teresting debates are looked for.
A comparison with the assessment of
1901 shows the following Increase In the
valuation per mile: Chicago, Nebraska. &
Kansas, 1100; Lincoln 4 Black Hills, $40;
N. W. Western, $300; Republican Val
ley, Kansas ft Southern, $60; Nelson
branch of Rock Island, $500; Omaha Belt
Line, $3,500; Kansas City ft Northwestern,
$150; Kansas City ft Omaha, $300; Sioux
City. O'Neill ft Western, $100; the Lin
coln branch of the Missouri Pacific waa
reduced $200, and the Springfield and Papll-
ilon branch $100 per mile; the Pullman
property waa Increaaed $4,000 In total valu

The 3,000 copies of the revenue law
parsed by the last legislature, which were
ordered printed and sent to the members
of the legislature, county officials and
others who are charged to enforce the law,
have been printed and will probably be dis

resolution to have printed 2,000 copies for
distribution and the senate ordered 1.000
copies. Unless some one comes forward
to pay the postage on those to be mailed
to the senators it Is probable they will
never get them. Some time ago when this
little oversight was discovered a letter was
written to Chairman Cox of the committee
on accounts and expenditures, but so far

HEAVY SEAS SWAMP BOAT
Middles Win Race When Pennsyl
vssls Craft Sinks In
ANNAPOI.Ifl. Md.. May 2.-A heavy sea
capsized the University of Pennsylvania's
crew in a race today on the Severn with
the Navy, and gave the latter an I'nsy vic
tory. The water was fslrly smooth early
in the afternoon, but hardly had the crews
taken their seats before a stiff breeze
utarted and a heavy sea was soon rolling
over the course.
The boats got ofT well from a flying start.
The middles, being more nccuRtomed to
rough water, took things as easy as pos
sible, merely hanging on and not trying to
spurt. Pennsylvania, however, hit thlncs
up to a 35 stroke and iheir boat soon com
menced to till. At the Bantee wharf the
bow went under snd In a few minutes the
boat waa swamped and the men were taken
off in a launch. The freshmen second
trews race wns called off.
The Navy oarsmen were little pleased
over their hollow victory and Imintvdluiely
rrrjuexted the Quakers to mi:ke another
date, and the PeiinaylvanlHns declared that
with the permission of their faculty they
wo lid come here on May 16 for another
