The jrfrnt railroad hoard at the meeting of the ixecutive council for fixing railroad a:sc.a memi this morning wan the Sante Ke and tha attorney lor that line said they wire eattafied with the assessment provided 11 waa not raised, and In that event he desired to be heard. The road has but little track age In Iowa. Attorney Woodruff for the Chicago Groat Western, the one road of the state that has made an Increase In Its not earnings, en tered Into u long argument to show that the assessment of his line waa too high, showing that as compared with the net and gross earnings the Oreat Western was assessed higher than any other line In the state excepting the Iowa Central. He ahowed that 'the percentage, of tuxes paid in Whi to the net earnings of 1804 was 17.1 per cent, while the average of the alx larg est roads waa but 14. 01, and the Iowa Cen tral alone was higher with 25.75 per cent. He then compared the net earnings with the gross showing that the Ureat Western waa lower than all the other roads except ing the Iowa Central. Governor Cummins . tried to get him to admit that this waa due to less economical management. Frank P. Crandon of the Northwestern argued that the assessment a are all too high and chtlmcd that aa compared with the. farm assessments the assessment ot the Northwestern would fix Its value at $87,000 and said he didn't see how the mem here of the executive council could Bleep after fixing the assessment at that high figure He and Governor Cummins then en tered Into a long argument as to the basis for fixing the assessment. Governor Cum mins argued that the basis as to the value of a railroad should be what a person waa willing to puy for It Just as the value of a farm Is fixed. Crandon argued egalnst this and thought the physical condition ot the road should be considered. Governor Cum mins In answer to the claim that the rail roads were assessed out of proportion to farm lands said that if the council found that lands In Iowa were worth 150 an acre and the assessments returned to the coun cil by the county auditors was but $40 then they would assess the roads at four-fifths of their actual value. - Crandon conceded that this waa right In principle, but that the council disregarded It In practice. Little, warmth waa developed In the hear ings today, but when the railroad men ar gued that the physical condition and cost ot a road was Important, considerable con fusion Waa created among; them when Gov ernor Cummins asked what was the differ ence In the worth of two roads, one cost ing $20,000 a mile and on costing S40.0UO, when the gross and net earnings were the aame and likely to continue the same. Holdup Prostrated. Mra. J. R. Glbaon of 837 Fifteenth Btreet was ordered to throw tip her hands lost night as she passed the alley where Frits Westbrook was held up and shot. Instead she drew a revolver and on threatening to use it was unmolested and safely reached tier home a block away. The police are confronted with the fact that holdups are frequent and they are powerless thua far to stop It. It la now believed that West brook, who waa shot last Thursday In the stomach, will recover. ' Atlantic Gets Guard Company. Company II of the Fifty-fifth regiment at Charlton was today ordered mustered out by Adjutant General Thrift and In company with Colonel Lincoln of the Fifty-fifth Gen eral Thrift will go to Atlantic Frid-ty to in vestigate the petition for a company from that city.

MOTOR STRIKES AX AtTOMORILE Dr. Tnhln Dana-eronalx Bind Dr. Sey- hert Seriously Hart. A motor car on the Fifth avenue line yesterday afternoon ran Into an automo bile occupied by Dr. R. n. Tubbs and Dr. F. T. Seybert, both of whom were more or less seriously hurt. The accident occurred at the intersection of Fifth avenue and Sixth street. Oscar Llnder was the motor- man and W. H. James, the conductor on the motor car. Both of the Injured phy sicians were able to be taken to their homes. The crossing where the accident took place Is considered a dangerous one, aa persons driving south on Sixth street can not see either way on Fifth avenue owing to the tall buildings on each 'side, which are built clear to the sidewalk, St. Francis Xavler's church, being on the west and the parochial school on the east. Dra, Tubbs and Seybert, with the former acting aa chauffeur,, were speeding south when the motor east bound struck the automo bile In the center.

The recom mendation came originally from the art department, which Is making an effort to get together former members who have dropped out, but the privilege of returning without additional fees could not be granted to one department alone, so the directory decided at a recent meeting to call the club together and extend the privilege to nil. I,nst fall a recommemlatlon was brought by the club's constitution com mittee providing for an amendment of the by-lnws to reinstate delinquent members upon the payment of a fine. This recom mendation the club rejected, but It Was finally decided that delinquents might be relnitated upon the payment of $4, of which i3 should be the regular member ship dues. The action taken by the club yesterday afternoon In no way conflicts with the previous action, for "the 1.1 privi lege Is merely granted through a suspen sion and not an amendment of the by laws, and Is In effect for only a limited time. It was further decided yesterday afternoon to refund the extra dollar that had been paid by delinquent members un der the original act of the club that no injustice might be done anyone. Notice was given by the treasurer that dues might be I laid to her at any time during the sum mer. Considering the previous action of the club, that there might be no misunder standing, the chairman explained her au thority for calling the meeting, which had been duly advertised. Twenty-five mem bers constitute a quorum.. One hundred delegates attended the first nnual meeting of the Business Women's association, which was held last week at the Hotel Endlcot, New York City. Tho convention waa attended by a spirit of en thusiasm and' an interest that promises a profitable future. Especial attention was given to plans for arousing the interest of business women and so extending the mem bership. Aa the organization embracea women of every profession, from the most humblest up to the highest. Its members are well Qualified to deal with all prob lems pertaining to women wage earners. and the prime object will hp to better con ditions wherever possible and to bring them up to the Highest possible standard. It has been estimated that women have moat frequently been unsuccessful in their efforts to bring about much needed reforms in conditions governing working women because, la the majority of cases, the re form was undertaken by club women or others not affected by exUtlng conditions. Employers have over and over again met their interference with the assertion that as long as their women employes made no fuss about their condition. It Is no affair for-other women to meddle with. But the time has passed when women are to be quieted either by rldlculo or discourage. ment; through the various clubs the suc cessful, "Influential women have been awak ened ' to their responsibility to their less fortunate sisters and at last the business women themselves, In spite of their limited hours of leisure, have been encouraged to organise with the assurance of backing from a half down great national organlxa tlons. With a central, national organiza tion perfected, attention will be given to extending the league through the states, A number of the states already have suc cessful associations. A brief life of Frances E. Wlllard has been written by Mrs. 3. E. McLaughlin of Manila and translated into the Tagalog language. An edition of 8,000 has been printed.

Shedd of Ashland and member of the Nebraska commission to the Lewis and Clark exposition at Portland was an Omaha visitor Monday, having been called home by the illness of his father, H. H. Shedd, at Ashland. Mr. Shedd was in charge ot the Nebraska exhibition at 8t. Louis. He said: "While the Nebraska exhibit at Portland is not as big aa it was at St. Louis, it is much the same, including the moving ptc. ture theater with some new features. The principal effort of the commission has been to make a distinctly agricultural exhibit at Portland with a view to emphasising those products for which Nebraska Is building up a market on the Pacific coast. Our corn exhibit Is much better than at St. Louis, both In quantity and quality, the corn of last year being of a higher grade than the year previous. We shall add a poultry ex hlblt later and our small grain exhibits compare favorably with other small grain states. We are now Installing the new crop of grain, William James of Dorchester, in charge of the agricultural exhibits, now being in the state getting up the new ex hlblt of grain. Nebraska is the only state making a corn exhibit In the agricultural palace and It attracts much attention." In referring to the moving picture ex hlblt of Nebraska that attracted so much attention at St. Ixiuls, Mr. Shedd said "The theater occupies a detached position Tin the center of the Nebraska pavilion. The Pacific coast papers have mentioned the Nebraska exhibit frequently and It ia also mentioned In the daily program of tha ex position." Mr. Shedd said further Governor Mickey had Informed him recently that he will I a few daya let the contract for the silver service for the battleship Nebraska and h expects to have the service on exhibition with the Nebraska exhibit at Pqrtland dur ing the latter pait of the exposition. The exposition will close October 15. The commission Is making plans for Ne braska day, which will take place during the latter part of August. Governor Mickey and his staff have promised to be present. JULIUS PEYCKE DIEDSUNDAY Word Heeelved from Rsa Franrlsco of tbe. Demise ot aa Omaha Raslnesa Man.

DEAL FOR VOTING MACHINES Nearotlatlona Opened by C ity Conacll Where They Were left OS Last Venr. The general council committee yesterday afternoon decided to reopen the voting ma chine negotiations where they were broken off last summer and authorized a resolution directing the old special committee, con sisting of Nicholson, Hoye and Evans, to get busy again. S. C, Hamilton, representing the United States Standard machine, which has been practically selected by the council, ix plained the status of the matter and told the city It could have Its own terms In which to make payments. Several mem bers of the council expressed opinions thnt he machines should be bought for the fall lection. It is estimated that thirty will take care of the city. As at present con templated the county will bear part of the xpense. Only the amount saved over present election expenses will be saved this year. City Attorney Breen thinks pay ment can be arranged legally In this way. It was decided to allow R. B. Carter, con tractor, $1,100 on his bill for "extras" on the Eleventh and Jones street fire engine house. Action taken regarding the buying of 500 feet of hose for the street department was reconsidered and orders will be given for the purchase of B"K) feet of four-ply Maltese Cross rubber hose at $1 a foot, provided It Is guaranteed for three years against defects In materials and workmanship. It was the turning down of a committee re port recommending Just this thing that caused the mayor's remarks concerning 'barroom Jegislatlon." Counellmen are an gry with the mayor, but did not let this stand In the way of their action. COATES IN CRITICAL STATE Soldier Shot While Entering; Girl's Room la Love from the Woanda. ' The condition of Private William E. Coates of the Thirtieth infantry of Fort Crook, who was shot by Mra. Martha J. Lane at Bellevue while attempting to break Into her home one night last week Is re ported to be extremely critical. ' The story of the shooting is to the effect that Coates and two or three companions unuertook to force an entrance Into the house of Mrs. Lane by a back window and had succeeded In cutting out the screen, when Mrs. Lane was aroused and ordered them to leave. T'pon their refusing to do so she fired three shots through the win dow, one of which struck Coates in the stomach. Popular sympathy seems to be wholly with Mrs. Lane, whom It Is alleged has been subjected to much harassment by some of the soldiers. Mrs. Lane denies her daughter was engaged to Coates, or that either of her daughters had even so much as kept company with Coates. She declares love had no part In the affair.
