(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Juns 10. (Special.) There was
no meeting of the State Board of Equali
sation today because most of the members
went to Omaha to take part in the semi
centennial celebration and for the same
reason there was little doing In the state
Ths board In all probability will make
Its final report tomorrow afternoon after
having listened to Tax Commissioner Cran
don of ths Northwestern tomorrow morn
ing. Ths total of ths tangible property re
turned by the various roads, exclusive ot
ths Illinois Central snd ths Omaha Brldgs
and Terminal company, amounts to about
10,(M).000 and It Is believed now that the
valuation placed on all the roads will In
ths Sgfregats for assessment purposes
reach more than 148,000.000, though there
is no definite way to tell until ths board
makes Its report Just what the figures will
be. Two or three of the board members
are carrying around different sets of fig
ures snd none of the figures vary much
and all hover around the $48,000,000 mark.
This valuation Is arrived at by considering
everything returned" by the roads snd In
formation dug up by the board besides and
at the best It will be little short of a guess.
Ons member of the board announced yes
terday when the railroad representatives
began to talk that he had heard Just about
enough, as the more that was said the
deeper and more complex beeamS the prop
osition. This member had labored hard
to get a system ot assessment that would
bs Just to all concerned, but last night he
admitted that when the board concluded
It would be a hard matter to say Just how
ths valuation was found. The'value of the
stocks snd bonds, however, will be the main
factor In getting at the final values, for
upon this proposition the board has put In
nearly all of Its tlms, after the first few
days of hearirg. The start the board has
made In establishing a rational system of
assessment, however, will assist the next
board In Instituting a perfect system, for
never before has a Stats Board of Equal!

Object to SlanlasT Warrant.
Peter Hofeldt, county commissioner, and

trial. To show that they do not they today
filed petition In error and bill of excep

peremptory writ allowed by the Judgment
does not conform to the slternative writ
and that the court erred In not granting a

After Mrs. Allred had testified the costs

Ths 'case of Louis Zobel, who was fined
for refusing to serve a colored woman In
his restaurant out at Kearney, Is now. In
the supreme court and ths question to de
cide la whether ths district court had Juris
diction to try the defendant on his appeal
from ths county court. After conviction In
ths county court Zobel secured a transcript
of the proceedings from the county Judge
and tendered the Judgs his own personal
recognizance to appear and answer In the
case. On motion of the county attorney
the case was dismissed In the district court
and then Zobel appealed to the supreme
court. It is the contention or the state that
the recognisance failed to conform to tho
requirements of the statutes and thoretors
no rights could bs gained by It.

MANY ARE LOOKING FOR LAND
O'Neill Land Office Has Many Appli
cants for Blst Homesteads.
O'NEILL, Neb., June 10. (Special.) In
quiry at 'the local land office brings out
the fact that from twents to thirty
strangers are visiting this place dal'.y In
search of homesteads. Many persons are
filing on 100 acres under the Impression
that when the Ktnkald bill takes effect on
June 28, that they can then take three
more quarters and some under the im
pression that such a filing now will give
the applicants a preference right to ad
joining land. It Is certain that such a
filing made now will not give any prefer
ence rlfcht to ndjoinlng land, but It Is be
lieved by some well Informed persons here
that such an applicant may on June 18
make application to amend his original
entry and that If such an application is
made before another filing la made on the
land desired in the amended application,
and khere wouM be a possibility of the
entry as amended being allowed tc stand.
Judge Klnkald la taking an active Inter
est in looking after the rights of the
settlers in his district and hopes to iive
such a construction put upon tha law. The
Judge received word from Washington
this morning that the filing fee On $H0
acres will be $14, the same amount as
heretofore charged for 160 acres. There
Is yet an open question regarding the
rights of those who have homesteads and
have not made proof, where there Is no
I vacant land adjoining, being able to take
three quarters not adjoining, but ths
Judge Is making an effort to get a liberal
construction Which will permit such fl Ings.
Such a provision was In the Judge's or ginal
bill In plain words1 and it Is believed that
ths bill ss passed will bo construed to
permit taking land In this manner. The
last congress also passed a bill allowing
persons who hsve taken homesteads snd
havs Abandoned or relinquished their
former entries to take another home
stead. BIO INCREASE IN ASSESSMENT
