(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Bept. . (Special.) Several
hundred women and men drained and
lopped through the mud and water at the
Bute Fair grounds today In a gentle down
pour that continued moat of the day. It
wasn't a hard rain, but It wu hard enough
to keep people in their rooms and to knock
to smithereens the day's program at the
fair. The races were declared oft and the
drills were postponed until tomorrow morn
ing. It was Fraternity day and enough- of the
brothers and sisters were In Lincoln to
swell the crowd to regular fair proportions,
but most of these spent the day on the
streets and In their rooms, possibly 8,000 or
4,000 going to the grounds, but there there
was nothing doing, even the streamers over
the midway had been taken down. The
people Just slopped around, carrying mud
and water from one place to another, with
no particular object In view.
The crowd was not In the best of humor,
for the women folks wore their best dresses
and their newest badge decorations, and
the drill teams came In all the glory of
their uniforms. The rain made the town
take on regular metropolitan airs, for the
streets were crowded and the merchants
did a thriving business. The weather man 1
has promised good weather for tomorrow.
Troaele Over Seeretarysllo.
Among other things now Is ths selection
of a secretary to the 8tate Board of Equal
ization to All the offlce created when the
last legislature created the five-member
board. The new law requires that the sec-
retary be selected at the meeting of the
board to be held in December. This, howi
over, will work a hardship on the secre
tary, as he will be compelled to prepare
for almost Immediate use blanks of impor
tance to the assessors. . ,
At this time the board Is seriously con
sidering deciding on some one for the place
j and giving him to understand that he Is to
be appointed and then allowing him to go
J ahead, familiarise himself with the work
and get ready to Issue the blanks. This
seems about the only way to get the work
up according to law. At this time several
names are mention in connection with
the place, among then-V being former
County Clerk Perslnger of Central City,
former Senator Reynolds of Chadron,
fioutherland of Burt county and Bookkeeper
Bennet of the auditor's office. The latter
to not sure that he would take the place
At it was to be tendered him, as It pays
only $1,800 a year.
The secretary will be the most responsible
man on the board and upon his Judgment
to a great extent the board will rely, con
sequently great care will be used by the
hoard In making the selections He will
have charge of all the books. Issue the
calls for the meetings and will do most
of everything the board has to do.

Ohio state committee Inviting, him to speak

tion of the ticket. Mr. Burkett has accepted
the invitation and will go to Ohio some time
In October, giving the Nebraska republican
state committee the first call on his time.
Mr. Burkett is pleased to go to Ohio be
cause of the great service dona the tiw
tn Nebraska by Benator Hanna during the
last presidential campaign. "The republi
cans of Nebraska will not soon forget the
work of Senator Hanna," he said. "He
tame here when matters looked critical for
President McKlnley and did valuable work
at great personal inconvenience. Raminp
Hanna ia again a candidate and I am happy

am able to help hlra secure a re-election,"

Callege Boys Do Well.
Fred Taylor, one of the three New Tork
boys fresh from college who were sent to
the harvest fields by the labor commis
sioner, has written to the offlce that he
and his roiniutnlons are now employed on
a ranch near Ellsworth and are doing Well
and are happy. They went through the
"The Food With
harvest without trouble and managed to
keep up their appetite. From the va
rious farmers in the state who have writ
ten the labor bureau, a majority said the
college students were far the best farm
workers they had employed. One man
wrote that the boys were unable to do as
much work In a day as the old harvest
hands, but that they did as much as they
could and were conscientious In their work,
and they were not onto the ways of the
shirker. All of the eastern boys sent out
by the labor bureau have given satisfac
tion and most of them are still at work.

Representative McClay's bill to require
the mayor of the city of Lincoln to ap
point a board to exsmlne plumbers, to
comprise a plumbing Inspector, the health
officer, one Journeyman plumber and one
master plumber, has been the cause ol
Mayor Adams being the defendant In a
suit to compel him to make the appoint
ments. A writ of mandamus was applied
for this morning by William P. Heath,
who was endorsed by the central labor
union for a place on the board, to compel
the mayor to appoint. Heretofore Mayor
Adams has refused to act because he be
lieved the law was unconstitutional. The
hearing has been set for September 17.

systematized records permit prompt dispo
sition of the business of the department
Conservative estimates by the several
state departments and the committees on
ways and means of the Twenty-ninth Gen
eral assembly ss to probable receipts and
disbursements, placed the cash balance In
the treasury January 1, 1904, belonging to
the general revenue, at between $?00,0O0 and
$300,000. Large receipts from unexpected
sources will mske this balance nearer
$1,000,0(10. The balance at the close of June
80, 1903. was $1,670.478. 88. Many appropria
tions made by the Twenty-ninth General
assembly have either not been drawn or
are yet to become available, and therefore
this present balance will be much reduced
later. The estimated receipts were much
below the actual receipts. No such In
crease from the several sources was an
ticipated as Is shown In the following:

Total receipts ending 1901 6,120,069.64
Increase 1903 over 1901 $1,067,796.96
Every source of revenue save one shows
an Increase over the preceding period. The
receipts from state institutions under the
Board of Control show a decrease of $17,
988.92. The others show large Increases.
Those from miscellaneous receipts are ac
counted for by the receipt from the United
States government of the following:
Refund civil war claim $466,417.89
Refund Spanish war claim 83,771.66
Refund Tama Indian quarantine.... 7.000.00
The Increase from corporation tax and
collateral Inheritance tax was not extra
ordinary, and yet considerably greater than
Other Sonreoa of Income.
The Increase from fees of state officers
was unusually large, amounting almost to
$200,000. This Is accounted for to a large
extent by the receipt by the secretary of
state of two tilings made In his office of
fees aggregating about $146,000.
The increase of $249,488.86 In receipts from
counties is divided between the proceeds
of the state levy and remittances covering
support of county Inmates at state Institu
tions. About two-thirds is accredited to
the former and one-third to the latter.
Less than one-fourth of the total Increase
Is from direct taxes. Almost one-half is
from the United States government re
funding amounts heretofore expended by
the state for purposes for which the gen
eral government was liable. -
The state auditor's warrants redeemed
during the period amount to $5,761,264.79.
This is an Increase over the preceding
period of $1,330,091.06. Of this. $899,901.63, or
more than two-thirds, Is on account of state
Institutions under the Board of Control.
This Is principally accounted for In the
completion of the Insane hospital at Chero
kee, the expenditures for which during
this period were 8534,789.83, as against $31,
8"8.81 during the preceding biennial term.
The purchase of land for several of the
Institutions, amounting to $143,339.70, added
to the above, together with new buildings
and the Increased cost of maintenance,
affords an explanation for the growth of
expenditures by the State Board of Con
trol. The Increase for state educational
Institutions Is $113,024.21. The balance Is
distributed among numerous other expen
ditures. It will therefore be seen that the
principal Increase In expenditures is
charged to our educational, eleemosynary
and penal institutions, the two latter show
ing much the larger increase..
Collateral Inheritance Tas.
The receipts from the collateral Inher
itance tax continue one ot the principal
sources of revenue. They rank -fourth In
Importance among those that regularly
contribute to the.state's income. Receipts
from counties, fees from state officers and
corporation taxea. each exceed the receipts
from the collateral Inheritance tax. The
Increase In this tax was $38,200.22, or about
20 per cent over the preceding period.
The Twenty-ninth General assembly made
no change In the law relating to the col
lection of this tax, and the difficulties re
main as related In former reports. A bill
was prepared by this department, its pro
visions being approved by the attorney
general, and it was Introduced In both
branches of the last last general assembly.
It was not designed to radically change
the preaent statutes, but to make them
conform to the decisions of the supreme
court, where disputed points had been de
termined by that tribunal, and where they
had not been so determined, te conform
to the opinions of the attorney general.
In the houne It was reported from the
committee, but so changed that It was
senerally thought best not to pass It. and
It was indefinitely postponed. The senate,
observing the position taken by the house,
did not report the measure out of the
Law Not Eqaltably Enforced.
While there Is considerable ' revenue de
rived from this source, .there Is much -Inequity
existing, in the enforcement of the
law. There are counties In the state from
which ateady returns are made. Many
estates are reported and much tax is re
celveJ , everything Indicating that the offi
cers, ixtorneys, and those generally con
nected with the settlement ot estates, are
In accord with the law and are not en
gaged in an attemrt to evade Its pro
visions. In other counties It Is very appar
ent that the opposite Is the rase. Borne
counties, by reason of their long settlement
and the wealth of their people, should
naturally contribute greater, sums to the
tressury than those whose settlement Is
more recent, but In counties differing little
In this respSX't there should not be the
difference shown on our records. Delin
quencies are often discovered caused by
Ignorance of the law. Attorneys In charge
of eetates often admit of this. Some of
the officers charged with enforcement make
similar admissions. Probably the principal
raue is that no point can safely be de
termined unless one Is thoroughly familiar
with the whole law and the seversl de
risions of the supreme court. The same
aueetlon Is dealt with In successive acts
of the legislature, besides a set of rules
promulgated bv a pommlnslon. which rules
are nowhere found In any of the sesaton
laws, though they are now published In
the code supplement. It is becsuse nf this
confusion that we advocated a codification
In our last report, snd the two years that
have alrce elapsed have In no way changed
our position except to strengthen our ad
vocacy of the measure. There should be
tmlformlty In the enforcement of any law.
Especially should thin be true of revenue
laws. To procure uniformity the. codifica
tion Indicated In the printed bill before
the Twnty-pinth General assembly should
College Endowment nnd Interest.
The tables setting forth the transactions
In the endowment fund of the Iowa Stale
College of Agriculture and Mechanic Aria
show thst during the biennial period there
were new mortgage bonds made In the
sum of $188,100; that there were paid or
sent to the financial agent for foreclosure
$170,760. snd that there were In my custody
at the close of the period bonds amount!!.
to $cjt.4f0, and caHh. 80SS. At last report
the bonds amounted to $'48,100 and cash

81,600, waa sent to the financial agent for
foreclosure during the last two years.
There waa collected $74.2(104 Interest, all
of which waa, on the requisition of Herman
Knapp, college treasurer, remitted to him.
The interest collections were $1,347.06 less
than for the preceding period.

the United States government l,uuO, and
on July 18, ISM), from the same source, $J6,
8)10, making a total of 80O.OA). This sum on
various requisitions has also been remitted
to the college tressurer. Iowa now receives
the maximum fo.uou annuauy allowed any
state by this government appropriation,
known as the Morrill Endowment.
Other Small Levies.
Special levies for the State university and
State College ot Agruculture and Mechani
cal Arts have varied during the period
covered by this report. During the last
half of the year 19J1 and all ot 1903 the col
lections were on a one-tenth of one mill
levy, and during the first half of 19u3 they
were on a levy of one-nfth of one mill. The
State normal school during the latter periol
has had a levy of one-tenth of one mm.
The collections for the period were:
State University $146,697.06
State College 143.9M.61
State Normal Si.t46.7i.
For preceding period:
State University $108,713.28
State College 3o.4H8.itl
Total .' $139,212.19
On account of these institutions there
was disbursed from the proceeds of these
collections during fiscal period:

negro rescued from a mob
Taken to Frifttn Under Fin of Brick
SHOOTS 1 MAN IN PRESENCE OF WIFE
Mnrdorer Faints In the Jail and
Begs to Bo rat In Cell Where
Mob Cannot Reach
CHICAGO, Sept (.Under a fire of bricks
and stone, policemen last night rescued
John Brlnkley, a negro murderer, from
would-be lynchers. He had killed Charles
McCarthy, a plasterer, almost In the pres
ence of the latter a wife, who stood In the
doorway holding her baby.
Then the negro, backing Into the door
way of his own quarters, held a crowd of
200 at bay until Patrolman Robert Mooney
walked up to him, disarmed him and took
away his weapon. Then came the second
exciting attempt of the mob to wreak
vengeance on the murderer.
Mooney opened the door and took his
prisoner into the office of the tile factory
In which Brlnkley was employed, to await
the patrol wagon. But as he did so the
crowd surged forward once more, with the
cry: "Lynch him, lynch him; get a rope."
The policeman tried in vain to close the
door on the crowd and keep it closed, but
even with the assistance of the now terri
fied murderer it waa useless. While Mooney
was thus struggling Brlnkley turned and
fled from the officer by the rear door. He
was captured again.
At the police station Brlnkley fainted
from terror and when revived begged to be
put in a cell where no mob could get at
FREMONT MANJJANGS HIMSELF
Dead When His Son Cornea Homo la
Evening nnd Dlscovere
FREMONT, Neb.. Sept. I. (Special Tele
gram.) Simon K. BImonson, a tailor living
at 1237 East Military avenue, committed
suicide by hanging some time today. His
body waa found by his son, Charles BI
monson, hanging from a joist in the barn
when he returned from his work at o'clock
this evening. The son Immediately cut the
rope and notified a neighbor of the affair.
Coroner Brown and the sheriff were sum
moned. In the opinion of the coroner the
man had been dead for several hours. Mr.
Simonson had been in poor health for
some time and was at times very despond
ent. His family consisted of a daughter,
Emma, aged 18, and a son, Charles, who
Is 23 years old. This morning Emma went
to Lincoln to attend the state fair, leaving
her father alone for the day. He seemed In
his usual health and in good spirits. The
son did not come home for dinner as usual
and when he came to the house about
o'clock was surprised to find the door
open. The neighbors noticed the doors
open during the day and It is probable
that the old man went out and hung him
self very soon after his daughter left. He
was born in Denmark In 1839. He came to
Saunders county about thirty-five years
ago and took up a farm. Eighteen years
ago he sold out and came to Fremont,
where until recently he worked at the tail
or' trade, which, he learned in Denmark.
