Juu. 1. voiJteui.) A com

lino railroads niaae by the various statu
boards ol equalisation lrom lssl to the
present time is suillcient to show that the
protests against the siale boards of recent
years are well timed. While the earning
power of these two roads has materially
Increased and in every way tne roaus have
become more valuable, tne assessed val
uation has materially decreased, tnanks to
no ether logical reason than railroad dom
ination in Nebraska politics.
In 1TS1 the Burlington main line, lyl.86
miles, was assessed at 10,64u per mile and
the Union Pacific main line, 465.70 miles.
waa assessed at $11.6u2 per mile, For the
same year the total valuation of the Bur-
lington main line was $1,043,117.14 and of the
Union racitic $o, 264, 26. 40. The board this
year fixed the assessment of the Burling
ton main line, 1x1.61 miles, at $10,500 per
mile, and the Union Pacific, 467.38 miles, at
$9,9u0 per mile. The total valuation of the
Burlington this year was only $2,043,117.14,
or a decrease of $31,212.14, and ten miles.
Of the Union Pacillu this year the total
valuation on the main line was $4,627,062 14,
or a decrease in the assessment since 1881
Of $647.14.40. And the Union Pacific had
Increased Its mileage during this time on
the main line, about seventeen miles.
Of course since 1S81 the value of these
two roads has Increased materially. New
and costly terminal facilities have been
erected in Omaha, the Union Pacific alone
being valued at $15,000.0u0. New steel has
Cirn put In and In every way the two
systems have been made modern and have
been made greater producers of wealth for
their owners. The highest assessment
reached by the Burlington was In 18-15,
when the board made the assessment per
mile $12,612. Since that time it has been
gradually decreased with a slight Increase
occasionally until the present time. The
The Union Pacific reached its high water
mark In 1881, when the board assessed It at
$11,562 per mile.
The net earnings of the Union Pacific
In 1886 were $3,975.80 per mile, and in 1901

Selecting State Architect.
The State Board of Publlo Lands and
Buildings will meet Wednesday, June 8,
to select a state architect, as provided for
by the late legislature. The architect will
receive a salary of 82,600 per year and his
assistant $1,200 annually. The board has
been laboring under the Impression that
the architect was not to be appointed until
July, but recently the attention of the
board members was called to the fact that
the bill creating the office passed the legis
lature with the emergency clause attached.
It Is probable that only the chief will be
selected Wednesday and the selection of an
assistant left for a future date.
Thompson Wnnts Laboratory.
Food Commissioner Thompson Is worry.
lng some these days over the establish
ment of a laboratory. Heretofore the com
missioner's work has been done at the
university, but' this year Chancellor An
drews has Informed Mr. Thompson that he
objects strenuously to any such arrange
ment. Consequently Mr. Thompson Is seri
ously considering the establishment of a
laboratory In one ot the third story rooms
In the caoltol. To do this would mean the
outlay of about $4,500, but Mr. Thompson
believes it can be done and the amount
charged to Incidental expenses. In the
meantime, however, he will see the regents
of the state university and ask them to
overrule the chancellor's objection. The
rerents do not meet until July, hence
nothing will be done before then.

Effects of the flood were felt at the state
house this morning, every office waa loser
by one or more employes or officers by
reason of It. In the governor's office only
Chief Clerk E. S. Mickey was on hand this
morning. This afternoon Mr. Husted
showed up somewhat disfigured. Governor
Mickey is still observing Memorial day at
Wayne, or somewhere between Lincoln and
Wayne. He has not been heard from.
Private Secretary Allen was waterbound
at Tecumseh and telephoned that it would
be impossible for him to reach Lincoln
today. Miss Walker, the governor's stenog
rapher, was at Plattsmouth, where she
went to spend Memorial day. She was un
able to get In today because of the rain
ard washouts. Treasurer Mortensen la
still at Ord, and nothing has been heard of
him. Auditor Weston Is somewhere, and
Mr. Pierce of the Insurance department Is
supposed to, be somewhere between here
and Omaha. Deputy Secretary of State
Fred Miller Is at Falls City, or at least
that is where he went, and nothing has
been heard of him. As he IS subject to sea
sickness he is not expected today. Super
intendent Fow'.er Is still out somewhere,
but the washouts will make little difference
to him. He has an engagement at nearly
every commencement In the state, so any
where with him for the next two weeks
at least will be "home, sweet home." Ad
jutant General Culver came In at noon
from West Point and other points where
he talked on Decoration day. But he came
by way of Omaha. Mrs. Hattie Fletcher
of the office of the secretary of state came
down from Omaha on the special which left
there at 9:30 and got here at 12 o'clock.
This train waa made upon the order of
Superintendent Blgnell ol the 3urllngton.
and It carried about sevehty-flve passen-'l
gers. Labor Commissioner Bush started
from Omaha at 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon and got here at 4:80 this morning. A.
Walt,. In the secretary's office, got scared
out of Syracuse by the high- water Satur
day night and consequently was here today.
Adna Dobson of the Board of Irrigation
was hero on time today,-ut then water Is
his - business and he doesn't care for It.
Deputy Land Cammlssioner Eton has re
turned after being waterbound for seven
days In Iowa and out In the state. Food
Commissioner Thompson is still out. At
torney General Prout was on hand this
morning, but he doesn't take to water
often and consequently remained tn Lin
coln over Sunday.
School Needs Repairs.
Superintendent Hayward of the Kearney
Industrial home for boys was here today
to meet with the Board of Publlo Lands
and Buildings. He reports his Institution
badly In need of repair and he believes It
will take nearly all the $8,000 appropriated
to, meet the expenses. He said the build
ings neeaea new noors, roots and many
Early Cora la Demand.
According to reports received by the
labor commissioner a large per cent of the
corn crop has been washed out and as It
will be at least two weeks before the land
is tn condition to replant, a great many
acres of land will go to waste In Ne
braska this year. In some counties 75
per cent of the corn crop Is ruined.
A. Walt, bookkeeper in the office of the
secretary of state, has a remedy that will
prevent any of the overflowed land from
going to waste. This morning he said:
The elevator men and farmers should do
like we did in 1883. At that time the corn
was all washed away and In many counties
the farmers decided not to replant. Some
of the elevator men, however, sent to Min
nesota and got some corn seed of an early
variety that matured In ninety or 100 days.
cara were noi as long as our own
corn, but they were large In circumference
and a splendid crop was grown. It will
be at least two weeks before the ground
s in any condition to cultivate and it will
then bo too late to plant home corn, that
is In any of the overflowed country. If
the farmers will get their elevator men to
send to Minnesota for the early corn seed.
iney win come out all right and will raise
a good crop. I remember In the year 1883
some of the farmers did not plant all their
corn until July 4, but even that made a
Kebraaka Boy Wlaa Honor.
Paul Harrington of Wayne "showed" the
Missouri boys down at Wentwortb mill
tary academy at Lexington, Mo., by carry
ing off first honors In science and military
tactics. Adjutant General Culver today
received a letter from Captain Davis, the
regular army officer detailed to that acad
emy stating that Harrington had carried
off the honors and that he had recom
mended the young man to the secretary of
war ror a commission.

SIDNEY. Neb., June l.-(Special Tele

train in charge of Superintendent Baxter
and preceding the presidential special by
five minutes arrived at the handsome sta
tion of the Union Pacific which had been
beautifully decorated for the occasion by
Trainmaster Cox and Agent Clifton. The
eager crowd which had gathered from far
and near, forsaking business and laying
aside the Implements of the farm and
ranch for the purpose ot meeting and
greeting their president, lined up on either
side of the track and as the presidential
train rolled Into the station. Joined In
the mighty hurrah as a greeting to Presi
dent Roosevelt. The president In his usual
happy and earnest manner addressed the
crowd and mentioned that he had been a
cowman himself. He expressed his pleas
ure at meeting the sturdy cltlsens of this
locality and said that the babies who were
liberally interspersed throughout the au
dience were all right in quantity and qual
ity. He spoke feelingly to the old soldiers
who weie there In a body to greet him and
speaking of the high standard of cltlsen
shlp and manhood which characterised
their services to the country said that the
same high order of manhood should be
emulated b; the citizens of today. He
drew a parallel between those days when
section was aligned against section and
these days when there is often manifest
an effort to array class against class. The
president's address occupied about , fifteen
minutes and was gratifying to all, Irre
spective of political affiliation nnd those
who had traveled long distances to get a
glimpse of the nation's chief seem to feel
amply requited for their trouble.
