for the City.
Dnfrldt, Democratic Member, Casts
the Only Vol Aaalast It
tlaatlna of the (omrals
sloaers Meeting.
W.t a meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners held Monday morning The
Evening Ree was named as the official pa
per of Douglas county for the year begin
ning with July 1. 190S. Commissioner Ho
ldt, a democratic meml-er, csst the only
irote against the acceptance of The Bee's
bid. A report from the committee of the
nhole. showed that not only was The Bee
ld the lowest, but that the, World-Herald's
Did was Irregular In form.
County Treasurer Fink was ordered to
transfer to the general fund 130.8261 from
the following funds: From road fund, J20,
000; from bridge fund, So.OOO; Douglas addi
tion Judgment, tfl.MO; from hospital and In
sane Judgment funds, J325.R1.
John W. Towle was awarded the contract
for building wooden pile bridges and mak
ing repairs on the same for the ensuing
year. TJds was done after a long session
Bf the committee of the whole, during
which tfie members and County Engineer
Edqutst went over all the bids most care
fully. The chairman of the board and the
county clerk were Instructed to sign a
contract In accordance with the terms of
the Towle bid. Mr. Towle s figures were:
Superstructure complete, per lineal foot,
1.142; furnishing lumber In place for caps,
130; felloe guards. $3; sways. $30; backing.
$?2; wings, $32; riprap and bank protection,
$45; refloorlng bridges complete, $30. These
figures are all per thousand.
Anthes rropnsltloti Accepted.
Th. board decided to accept the proposi
tion of George Anthes, former deputy state
auditor, and to enter into a contract to
pay him 10 per cent on all money he may
recover for Douglas county which has
been overpaid to the state In the way of
taxes for the last thirty-five years. In
no event Is the total amount to be paid
Anthes to exceed $1,000. It la estimated
by some that this county has probably
paid from $25,000 to $30,000 In excess of what
It should have paid to the state.
Mrs. Heller, superintendent of the Juve
nile detention home, was authorized to em
ploy an additional female assistant at a
salary of $25 per month. There are so
many Inmates at present In the home that
one woman assistant In the kitchen Is not
able ot do all the work.
Euclid Martin appeared before the board
and asked that two certain lots sold for
taxes and bought by the county be cleared
from the cloud thus put upon them. His
company Is, he said, ready to pay Its taxes,
but objects to paying 12 per cent a year
Interest through no fault of Its own. The
matter was referred to the committee on
Judiciary and the county attorney.

full board for the first time in a month.
Before Mr. McDonald recently met with an
accident that laid him up Chairman Ken

during McDonald's enforced absence. The

Commissioner Tralnor. on his arrival In
New York, found that a brother had bought
tickets for a trip to Europe. They covered
England and Ireland and the South Omaha
commissioner said they had a most enjoya
ble time for two or three weeks. He was
called on to make a speech when the board
met nnd said:
"There really isn't much that I can sny
to Interest you. My trip to Europe was a
good deal of a surprise to me, but I en
Joyed ' It f Ktremely. We covered a good
deal of territory In the eastern part of our
own country and across the water, and we
saw much that was new and interesting.
Hut I want to assure you that I did not see
In my travels any place that looked as good
to me as Omaha. We do 'not appreciate
sometimes what a really beautiful city we
ore living in, and what a healthful and
agreeable climate we have compared to
other localities."
Bach la Statement of One of Retiring;
Members of Grain Dealers'
It was learned Monday morning that the
Wcstbrook-Glhbons Grain company and ths
Transmlsstsslppl Grain company have added
their names to the list of Arms which have
withdrawn from membership In the Ne
braska Grain Dealers' association.
The Lincoln Journal quotes Lincoln grain
men as saying that the Central Granaries
Company and the Nebraska Elevator com
pany, both with headquarters at Lincoln,
have .withdrawn from the combination In
the last few days.
A man connected with one of the with
drawing companies In giving the motives
which actuated himself and other firms said:
"The purpose for which the association
was organised has been fulfilled. Its ef
forts have secured at Kansas City and St,
Louis a system of weighing which insures
the Nebraska farmer that, when he ships
to those points he will get pay for Just as
much grain as he sends, and not be cheated
out of perhaps fifty bushels to the car by
the confusion as to weights which reigned
before the organisation of the Nebraska
Grain IValers' association. For some time
there has been no need of the existence
cf the association. Now that there seems
to be tn the public mind the conviction
that the association la a trust, many mem
bers have determined to get out In order
to show the farmers that they are on the
square and thus keep their good will. Ne
braska does not need the association any
Members of the alleged trust are now
seeking to buy wheat from the independ
ents. An Independent elevator man from
the central part of the state wrote to an
Independent fcuyer here saying that the
Omaha Elevator company were "after him
red hot to buy his wheat." whereas they
had always tried before to prevent him
from finding a market.

County Assessor tioes to Lincoln,
Where Protest is Raised Against
Omaha Assessments.
County Assessor Reed went to Lincoln
Monday morning to be present when the
complaint of the Lincoln merchants against
Douglas county assessment Is taken up.
This complaint is that merchandise In this
county Is assessed at a lower rate than
merchandise in Lancaster county.
Owing to having a meeting called
none of the county commissioners could
accompany the assessor to Lincoln, but
Mr. Reed expected to be reinforced by
some of the Omaha merchant who ap
peared before the local board to have their
assessments reduced.
The Douglas county assessor will appear
before the state board In rather peculiar
circumstances. Almost uniformly he voted
against the reductions allowed by the local
board, but on the other hand he will be
able to show that the reductions so al
lowed were made on an assessment consid
erably higher than that of 1904.

The appeal of H. G. Leavltt from the de
cision of-the State Board ot 'irrigation,
which refused his application to secure
water from the North Platte river 'to Irri
gate lands In Scotts Bluff county, has been
transferred from the Scotts Bluff district
court to the federal court, at the request
of United States District Attorney Baxter.
In his appeal to the district court Mr.
Leavltt named as defendants in the suit
Kthan Allen Hitchcock, secretary of the In
terior, and members of the State Board of
Irlgatlon, Governor John H. Mickey, Attor
ney General Norrla Brown and Lund Com
missioner Henry M. Katun. The plaintiff
brought the government into the case be
cause permission was granted the govern
ment to undertake the project which
Leavltt contemplated.
The case first started when Leavltt ac
quired the rights of the Farmers' Canal
company of Scotts Bluff county and filed his
application as required by law with the
State Board of Irrigation. Prior to this
however, the government, through Engi
neer Fields, filed an application with the
State Board of Irrigation In which It set
out that it was tha Intention of the gov
ernment to build a reservoir In Wyoming
and construct what Is known as the Path
finder canal. Two ditches were to extend
Into Scotts Bluff county, to be known as
the Interstate canal and the Goshen canal,
Kot I p to Requirements.
When Leavltt later filed his application
he claimed the government engineer had
not come up to the requirements of the
state law In describing the canals and the
lands to be Irrigated; consequently he took
the position that his application should be
considered as having been filed prior to the
application of the government.
When his attention was called to the
matter Engineer Fields asked permission to
file an amended application and the board
allowed him to do so. The State Board of
Irrigation then granted a haarlng last
April to both the government engineer and
Leavltt at the same time, with the re
suit that Leavltt was turned down and the
application of the government was granted.
The question the federal court will have
to deride la whether the State Board of
Irrigation did right In concluding that the
amended application of the government
should be dated at the time the original
application was filed. Leavltt admits that
the amended application of the government
rectifies any error that may have been In
the original application.
The government expects to spend several
millions of dollars on its project.
