LINCOLN, July 29. (feppcial.) The Btate
Hoard of Equalization met (or a short
time this afternoon to ,tilk over the sit

Auditor Siarle and Land Commissioner
Knton nothing was done, and even the
Hamilton county real estate assessment re
mained untouc hed. Governor Mickey apent
1h morning preparing a state map by In-scrtlng-
figures showing the average real
estate assessment of each county. This
Indicated an average of close to $1S an
acre for Douglas county as against $8,928
for Lancaster as equalised. Governor
Mickey stated that he believed the Doug
las county real estate assessment Is about
Notwithstanding that declaration, there
lias been sone talk of A Lancaster county
protest to secure an increase In the Doug
las county real estate. It, Is claimed In be
half of such an Idea that Lancaster county
spreads over a greater area and has much
poor land, although It Is admitted that
the presence of Omaha on the other hand.
In one end of the county, does not have
the effect of Increasing land values in the
west end of Douglas county.
Information coming from the precincts
of the board Indicates an unmistakable
sentiment for a heavy Increase in the as
sessment of Douglas county Merchandise,
although It Is admitted that there must
be a clear cut evidence of under-assessment
before any action ran be taken. The at
titude of the members of the board Is
largely due to the agitation among Lin
coln business men, who will redouble their
efforts since the board found It necessary
to Impose a 6 per cent Increase on the real
estate of this county.
Secretary of State Galusha has volun
teered to secure the ratings of commer
clal agencies ,by which to check mercan
dine assessments. The confidence of some
of the members of the board In this method
of checking assessments Is on the wane,
since they have learned of the difficulty
In untangling the merchandise holdings of
persons from their other property, when
they are rated by these agencies.

Commutes Sentence of Fink.
Governor Mickey announced today that
he had commuted the six months' peniten
tiary sentence Imposed on Harry D. Fink
of Douglas county to six months In jail.
The action was taken at the request of
Jii'l.n'. Kcdlck, the-trial Judge, and on the
advice of Deputy Attorney General Thomp
K;i, who rendered an opinion that the
)di n man was tried and sentenced under
ti e wrong statute and should in the first
Instance have been sent to Jail. Fink was
convicted on Ave different counts of having
mild railway tickets. The governor stated
today that he felt that the man had been

ample to cover the various offenses.

Antelope Connty Farmer Recovering
from Injuries Received.
NORFOLK, Neb., July 29. (Special.)
It Is reported that Henry Bertram of Craw
ford township. Antelope county, has for
weeks been resting between life and death
because his wife wanted a new hat for
the Fourth of July.
Bertram tried to persuade his better half
that the new bonnet was extravaganco,
and he used the handle of a pitchfork to
enforce his argument. Swinging the heavy
handle down upon the crown of her head,
Mrs. Bertram was finally felled to the
floor. Then the husband tried to bring
her back to life by the fresh air method.
He stooped down to haul her out doors
by the half of her head. While In this
position he loosened the grasp on the fork
handle and his 14-year-old son picked It up.
With one back-handed stroke the son
laid out his father. He took the mat on
the very first blow and failed to revive
before the count. He failed, too, to re
cover long after the victim of his own at
tack had come to life. She then took a
turn and belabored her loving spouse un
A broken arm, a seriously injured hip
and a wound In the head, requiring eight
stitches, covered Bertram's case. The wife
wore a very black eye for fouri days. For
days the life of Bertram was despaired of
and It was only yesterday that he began to
recover, it is said.

COMMENTS ON THE IA1E INTERVIEW
Rasa Snya thnt Proposal of Japan,

Arm I at tee.
ST. PETERSBURG. July 29.-The tone of
the Russian press grows more warlike as
the peace conference draws nigh and the
government on all sides Is urged to resist
humiliating demands even at the cost of
continuing the war.
"Peace, as outlined by Mr. Sato." says
the Ruse, which Is the first paper to com
ment seriously on the Sato interviews,
"can only be an armistice." The Ruse,
which now has the largest liberal follow
ing, finds the' Japanese demands far from
moderate and sees little chance of the con
ference ending successfully, if Mr. Sato has
correctly stated the Japanese position, but
it appears to believe that Baron Komura'e
I spokesman Is acting on "his own responsi
bility" or scents a possible bluff to pave
the way for the acceptance of actual and
more moderate terms by Japan.
The Svtet continues Its fault-finding with
the "tactlessness" of the visit of Secretary
of War Taft and Miss Alice Roosevelt to
Japan while the United States Is the host
of the peace plenipotentiaries. 1
The Foreign office today was shown M.
Sato's reference to the delay In the Chlno
Japanese negotiations because of faulty
credentials and reiterated that there can
be absolutely no doubt of the complete
ness and adequacy of the credentials of
the Russian plenipotentiaries. One official
"Mr. Sato seems to forget that Russia Is
a civilized nation, that it has made treaties
before and that It does not omit seals."

Socialists and Pence,
Perhaps the most interesting passage In
the undelivered speech of M. Jaures on
peace and socialism is as follow :
What deeply wounded French feeling,
what revolted all Frenchmen, from the so
cialists to the conservatives, was the pre
tension asserted by certain newspapers and
certain professors to make France a kind
of hostage if a conflict occurred between
Germany and England. What would be In
tolerable Is that our country should be ex
pected to break with England and to de
nounce the pact of good harmony which it
had concluded with her. We no more want
to purchase a rapprochment with Germany
by a rupture with England than we want
an agreement with England which would
be directed against Germany. It appears to
us possible to live in concord with both
countries in a spirit of moderation and
equity. If directly or indirectly repudiation

Mrs. Klbbe was coming down Tenth
street on the Farnam car and had got a
transfer to the Podge line going north,
and before the car had come to a full stop
stepped off, with her face toward tha
rear. She struck squarely on the back
of her head and was picked up by tha
conductor and motorman in an unconscious
condition. She was carried to the sidewalk
close to the depot, but all efforts to re
suscitate her were of no avalL
The police ambulance was called and
Surgeon Lang don responded. Dr. Lang-
don administered temporary relief and aft
erwards the Injured woman was removed
to St. Joseph's hospital, but at a late hour
she had not regained consciousness.
Mrs. Klbbe la the wife of Merrick C.
Klbbe, manager for the Western Tinware
company. Conductor Charles Thorne and
Motorinan George Elkins were In charge of
only of duties, and that If the representa
tives of the nation are to have "rights,"
the authority of the czar must of neces
sity be diminished. To this M. Khomtakoff
replied that "duties" and "rights" are
correlative terms, and that If the repre
sentatives of the assembly have not the
"rights" suggested In the memorandum.
It is absurd to speak of them as co
operating In the work of legislation.
Secondly, the authors of the "Rejoinder,"
suggest that tt Is difficult for an elective
assembly to continue to bear a purely con
sultative character; that it will Inevitably
come Into collision) with the supreme au
thority and endeavor to enforce Its own
will. M. Khomlakoff answered that such
a collision is certainly possible, but that
there Is no possibility of providing against
it in any form of government. The au
thority of the autocratlo monarch may, for
Instance, be usurped by his own servants.
In speaking of "an autocracy supported by
the active co-operation of representatives
of the nation," the marshals of nobility
were influenced by the consideration that
the present disorganised state of Russia
was due, "not to lack of good will on the
part of the autocratlo czar, but to the fact
that his autocratlo power was unduly
limited by an Irresponsible, arbitrary and
antequated political machinery, wholly for- ,
elgn to the life of the Russian people."
May Avoid Dana-era.
The principles formulated In the mem
orandum of the marshals of nobility and
elucidated In M. Khomlakoff' reply to the
twenty-three nobles were still further de
veloped In a pamphlet which was written
by M. Shlpofl and M. Gerastmofl after con
sultation with the principal members of the
conservative party, and was published only
a few days before the opening of the first
Moscow zemstvo congress. In this pam
phlet M. Shtpoff maintains that the past
and present conditions of Russian life dif
fer so fundamentally from those of the
countries of western Europe as to Invali
date the assumption on which the "consti
tutionalists" base their case namely, that
Russia Is now passing through that stage
of political development which was passed
through by France at the end of the eigh
teenth century, and by most of the other
countries of Europe in the middle of the
nineteenth century. M. Shlpoff appeals to
the authority of Mr. Bryce, Prof. Dicey
and De Tocquevllle In support of his con
tention that political reforms are bene
ficial and permanent only when they are
based upon a careful study of existing con
ditions, and that any violent breitch with
the past is sure to be attended with disas
trous consequences. He quotes with an,
proval Mr. Bryce's well known remark that
most, of the best articles in the American
constitution were borrowed from the al
ready existing constitutions of the separate
states, and observes that even a century
after the great revolution France was, po
litically speaking, still In a state of un
stable equilibrium. M. Bhlpoff'a party
maintains that the unhappy experiences of
western Europe may be avoided If Russian
reformers will consent to abandon theory
and to follow the example of Solon by de
vising, not the best conceivable form of
government, but the form which is best
suited to the actual needs and conditions
of the Russian people.
The refusal of thif party to accept the
principle of "universal, equal, secret and
direct suffrage" Is the logical consequence
of the view which they take of the role
which the future representative assembly
is to play.
Fear Written Constitution.
The only country In Europe, say the con
servatives, which has realised the fullest
measure of personal liberty for Its citizens
Is England, which bos never had a consti
tution written out, and M. Shlpofl and M.
Geraslmoff quote with approval Mr, Bryce
statement that the success of the English
constitution is due to the traditions by
which English statesmen have always been
guided, and by the respect which English
people have always shown for It. A writ
ten constitution in Russia, It is confidently
affirmed, would Infallibly share the fate
which such constitutions have more than
once suffered In France.
M. Shlpoff and his friends fall back
upon the old Slavophil formula: "To the
people, opinion; but the czar, power," main
talnlng that the one thing needful is to
bring the czar Into Immediate contact with
bis people so that the voice of the people
may reach htm without let or hindrance,
The number of representatives in the im

scheme, be approximately In the proportion

total number being 607. of whom 172 would

central Asia thirty, Siberia twenty-three

To give a man his rightful place by
birth and Inheritance among his fel
low men Is worthy of the noblest ef
forts of a physician's life, and every
good physician works earnestly to this
end. We offer you this aid, this help,
this certainty of restoration, and If
you will come to us we will spare you
the penalties associated with private
diseases and weaknesses of men. We
will help you to escape from the
slavery that Is holding you captive
and depleting your manhood. Do not
be deluded with the Idea that diseases
and weaknesses of men will correct
themselves they never do. It Is use
less to worry about the past cause
after the disease or weakness becomes
once established. The fact that the
trouble now exists makes It necessary
that there should be no apathy, no
delay, no deferring matters until later
on. Sexual diseases, or affections re
sulting therefrom, cannot be tam pored
with owing to the natural tendency
of every disease to Insidiously pro
gress and tenaciously fasten Itself
upon the system If proper treatment
Is not secured to bring about a com
plete and radical cure. It takes but
a small leak to All a boat with water
and sink it, and in many cases it re
quires but a small ailment to nil a
whole life with failure, misery and woe.
We have observed the terribly blighting Influences of abuses and Indiscre
tions In the young and middle-aged; sapping tho vital forces; undermining the
foundations of manhood; clouding the brightest minds and destroying all noble
thoughts and aspirations; family circles disrupted and the poisonous fangs
reachlnng out and blighting even sjcceedtng generations. We have devoted
many years exclusively to treating this class of troubles, attended with the
greatest success, 'and are enabled to rive this class of sufTorcrs the benefit of
our experience In treating diseases of -this nature.
