and convincing argument. The railroad i

City Engineer !Jtnyre waa called upon to
testify aa to his measurements and otln r
facta Mr. Clancy Insisted thut he he sworn.
"All ot our statements are (worn to," ex
Hi'lmed Mr. Clancy.
"I that the case?" asked Mr. BuMth,
with a meaning smile, and Clancy hastened
to reply In the affirmative.
"Well, if that la the case, how doej his
happen?" continued Mr. Smith, as he pro
duced two stutcmenta "sworn" to by the
t'nlon raclflc In 1902. One of the statements
was furnished to the State Railroad com
mission and the other to the State Execu
tive council. In the statement to the rail
ft"H mail commission the value of the road's
Idlnga In Council 11 luffs was given as
1249,840, while In the statement to the ex
ecutlve council their vnlue was placed at
Clancy triable to Kxplaln.
"How do you explain this discrepancy?"
asked Mr. Smith, and Clancy was forced to
admit he was unable to explain.
Mr. Smith did not attempt to discuss tht
ethics of assessing railroads, but contented
himself merely with showing what was
considered to he the actual and fair asses
sable value of the property. He showed by
figures that the earnings of the road had
been steadily Increasing and that Its prop
erty had not deteriorated, but had been
kept up to its original condition. He
showed that the Union Pacific by its state
ment! earned enormous rentals from the
ether railroads and contended that fourteen
of the so-called sidetracks were in fact
main lines used by the other railroads.
Mr. Smith took the position that the two
miles of the Union Pacific system between
the Tranafer depot and the bridge over the
Missouri river, had an enormous earning
capacity. He urged that the state council
In flXlhfr this assessment of the Union Pa
cific should take Into consideration the Im
mense value of the Transfer depot and
yards, as by them the Union Pacific prac
tically controlled the gateway to the west
and every other railroad from the east had
to pay It enormous rentals annually to se
cure an entrance Into Omaha.
Mr. Smith, when seen on his return yes
terday, said: "While, of course, It Is Im
possible to say what the state council will
do 1 and the rest of the committee feel
that tha council was very favorably lm-
, pressed with the showing which we made.
Governor Cummins spoke most assurlngly
and we will be disappointed If the assess
munt of the Union Pacific la not placed
back to what It was five years ago. The
facta and figures which we presented we
considered Indisputable, but how the state
council eonalders them remains .to' be seen."

suspicions to him and Mr. Battey asked the

There, as Mr. Battey said afterward, he
talkej to the young fellow like a "Dutch

of th" parent of the prospective groom she
was very much disappointed and It was

UNION PACIFIC VALUATION TO BE RAISED
Mom Jacobs, tk tviag of tha Dei
Moines evrsbo a, Finally W las
III Rult Against His
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES. July 12. (Special. ) A
doien farmer appeared before the execu
tive council today and every one of them
agreed that the farms of Iowa In the last
two or three years are not paying more
than about 2 per cent Interest and that the
assessment of farm lands I too high. Till
follow the statement of the railroad men,
who concluded their hearing before the
council this morning, and in which they
universally agreed that the railroads are
taxed higher In proportion than the farms
and other property of the state. They
claimed that for fixing the value of he
railroads It ought to be figured in no case
that they pay less than 6 per cent Interest,
and most of them wanted the figuring done
at 7 per cent Interest. Today J. J. Ryan,
secretary of the Corn Belt Moat Producers'
association, with Messrs. Goodnow of Sac
county, Thornburg of Dallas, Dorn of
Boone, Thompson of Greene and other, all
large farmers with farms of l.fmo acres or
more each, appeared before the council.
The representative of the Story County
Corn Belt Meat Producers' assoclatljn
showed that farms In that section had ad
vanced In assessed valuation 4fi per cent,
and the Northwestern railroad through that
county only 37 per cent. In the meantime
one farm In question had not been Improved
and the Northwestern had built a double
track. All of the farmer were convinced
that the farmer are paying more than
their proportion of the taxation and
Thompson of Greene county charged the de
creased revenue of the farm of the state
directly to the railroads and the meat puck
er. There la little doubt but that the Union
Paclflo assessment at Council Bluffs will be
raised by the executive council as a result
of the vllt of Mayor Donald Macrae and
other citizen of that city to the council
yesterday. One of the members of the
council said today that heretofore the cltl
ren there had never appeared before the
council and the council did not know the
real condition. "The representative of the
Union Pacific appeared before us and rep
resented that their road wa much In the
condition of the Union Terminal at Sioux
City, which intra of us knew personally
waa a losing Investment. They told a hard
luck tale and we believed them. There 1
no doubt In my mind but that we made a
mistake Inst year In lowering their assess
ment. It should be raised."
Affirm Jacobs Case.
The supreme court today affirmed the de
cision of the lower court In the Mose
Jacobs case from thla county, a case that
ha attracted wide attention. Jacobs came
to Des Mpine with his father, mother and
two brother. Mose Jacob sold paper and
the other two left home before of age. Mose
turned hi money over to hi mother, and
when he wa 33 years old and about to
marry she returned to him 115.000. Then,
when she died, he sued to recover more, and
wa given 112,700 more, which decision the
'court affirmed today.
The court also affirmed the case of
Jacob Thrush against Brlgham Grayblll,
from Pottawattamie oounty. sustalninr

WORKING FOR STATEHOOD
DelfgauCouTention ii Held at Oklahoma
City to DitccM Matter.
LARGE CROWD ATTENDS THE MEETING
Every County In Oklahoma and Every
Recording; District In Indian
Territory Is Represented
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okl., July 12. -One
thousand delegate from the Indian Terri
tory and Oklahoma met in convention her
today to take some definite action looking
to immediate statehood.
Delegates and visitor began arriving yes
terday and when the gathering was called
to order the greatest enthusiasm prevailed.
The convention was of great Importance to
both territories and. Indeed, waa considered
one of the most Important ever held In the
Indian country. In the early hour delega
tions paraded the streets, headed by bands,
with banners flying, and cheering for Im
mediate statehood. Many regular and spe
cial trains during the night and early
morning hours brought in thousands of
visitors from every direction.
Seemingly the utmost harmony prevailed
among the delegates, their only object to
advance the movement for early admission
to the union. While there were contesting
delegations, especially from the Indian Ter
ritory, where It waa alleged the Indian
had not been given fair representation, the
disagreement had been settled largely bv
fore the convention waa called to order.
An effort to agree upon temporary officers
In caucus early today failed and that work
wa left to the convention.
When C. G. Jone of Oklahoma City
called the convention to order In a brief
apeech he wa accorded a tremendous ova
tion, the delegate cheering until almost
exhausted. Every county In Oklahoma and
every recording district of the Indian Ter
ritory was represented by a full delega
tion, while hundreds of statehood enthusi
asts crowded all th remaining space in tho
I. N. Holcombe, former territorial super
lntendent of instruction, welcomed the del
egates and responses were made by II, P.

When tho convention met In the after

NEW STREET CAR EXTENSIONS
Ft. Crook Line Awalta Booth Sixth
and Forest Lawn Agreement
Work probably will be begun on th
treet railway extension to Bellevua and
Fort Crook a soon a the South Sixth
treet line work 1 completed. The right-of-way
men are tlll In the field for tho
south extension, but the route 1 not ready
to be announced. The hills, however. In
Sarpy county probably will be avoided and
a private right-of-way secured off tha reg
ular traveled road.
The extension to Forest Lawn cemetery
Is still in statu quo. This line would have
been built before thi time except for the
residents of Florence, who have been put
ting obstacle In the way ot th railway
officials. First they wanted the road to
run through Florence and to come Into the
cemetery from the north, which was con
sidered Impracticable by the officers of the
road because of the steep grade which
would have been encountered. After It wo
practically decided to use the short line to
the cemetery objection was raised as to
which side of the road the tracks would be
laid on and so the matter rest.
The officials of the road say they stand
ready to build the line a soon aa the prop
erty owner quit quarreling among them
selves and can decide where they will per
mit the company to lay Its tracks.
One Dollar Have Represents Ten Dol
The average man docs not save to exceed
10 per cent of hi earning. He must spend
nine dollars In living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex

will save several dollars' outlay later on. It

OMAHA. July 11 To the Editor ot The
Bee: In your paper of this evening ap
pear a letter signed "J. T. Smith," In
which he asks yon Si question with refer
ence to the Young Men Christian associa
tion and It present appeal to the public
of this city for funds, which question you
have not yet answered. He asks: "Were
you aware that Catholic (I presume fe
mean Roman Catholics) re debarred from
full membership In that association." The
w-rlter of this letter duel not belong to
any church t presume tho world would pot
even call him a Christian and ho believe
that some of the teaching of the Roman
Catholic church are very narrow, but he
believe In the teaching of Him who
preached the sermon on the mount, and
while he had Intended to subscribe as much
as he could afford to help the Young Men's
Christian association building fund, be
lieving that th association wa doing
something for the moral. Intellectual and
physical advancement ot young men. h
will not do bo until he learn authorita
tively whether or not the Young Men's
Christian association excludes any Chris
tian from It membership because of his
particular belief. AMERICAN CITIZEN.
Note by the Editor: The question as pro
pounded by Father Smith did not seem to
leave open the question of fact, as he
simply asked If The Bee were aware of It.
As we understand It, the Young Men',
Christian association and the Young Wom
en's Christian association, are no different
from certain Catholic Institution that ad
mit to the benefit all worthy people wha
comply with their rule. Irrespective of re
ligious creed, yet reserve the management
to member of their own church or do
nomlnattdn. No Cause for Suicide.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., July 10. To tha
Editor of The Bee: Thi Is the first time I
have been guilty of attempting to break
into print, but cannot let tha opportunity
pass. I noticed In your news Item where
a girl in Omaha committed suicide be
cause he waa out ot money and could not
find work. I have been advertising In
Omaha paper for a month past for girls,
offering fairly easy work and to pay trans
portation. If anyone I out of work it la because
they do not want work.
