LINCOLN, July tl.-(Special.) This after
tioon durlns; the hearing before the State
Board of Equalisation and Assessment on
the complaint of under assessment of
Douglas county merchandise. Judge Tlb
betts, representing the Lincoln merchants,
ofTered to atop If County Assessor Keed
would agree to a 26 per cent Increase. He
asserted that otherwise he would Introduce
evidence which would lustify an Increase of
50 per cent In the merchandise. Later John
E. Miller, president of the Lincoln Commer
cial club, asserted that the Increase would
be 100 per cent. Reed did not accept the
proffer, but when Governor Mickey asked
lilm what the merchants would do If an In
crease of 25 per cent was made he Indicated
that he thought It was too high, because of
the small merchants who would be hurt.
"It may hurt the smaller fellows," said
the governor, "but It will force them to see
that the law Is complied with next year and
they will bring pressure to bear on the
county board to that end."
Governor Mickey suggested that It would
le aa well to have the evidence In the rec
ord and members of the board Intimated a
desire to subpoena the Omaha merchants.
The charge, to which It was admitted
there waa truth, was that the large mer
chants In some Instances had formed the
habit of making out statements of low
vlue under the old city assessment sys
tern. When the deputies came around they
were Importuned to keep the assessment
down on account of the city tax, he said.
"Thty got In the habit of returning It at
smaller figure than the true value," said
"Did they learn It from the railways?"
queried the governor.
Mr. Reed, under examination by Judge
Tlbbetts, stated that he had only in a few
Instances seen the Invoices of merchants
when mnklng assessments. He said that
they would often bring papers to him, but
it waa difficult to tell what waa invoice and
what was not. He said that sometimes he
had not consulted the insurance policies
and admitted that various data had been
withheld. In several Instances, he declared.
he had sought the policies and had been
unable to get them.
He was asked as to the amount of money
listed by various firms. Judge Tlbbetts de
claring that the sum was entirely too small
In many Instances.
Assessors Cannot Agree,
In response to a question by Governor
Mickey Reed denied that he had stated last
year that he had been unable to get at the
merchandise values because he was busy
With real estate. He denied also that there
was any arrangement whereby the asses
ors were to list such property at less than
Its actual value. He said that he had noth
ing to conceal.
County Assessor Miller of Lancaster
tounty, who was first placed on the wit
hess stand for the Lincoln merchants.
Itated that he had sought to get the true
ralue in every instance, using invoices,
Insurance policies and other data as the
basis for the assessment. He stated, how
tver, that he had advised the complainant.

Gage County Cleric Objects.
County Clerk J. R. Plasters of Gage
county, who was In the city today, was dls
posed to complain of the action of the
State Board of Equalization in making a 10
per cent Increase In the average assessment
of sewing machines In the country. They
were assessed at an average of 12 and the
result of the increase will be to necessitate
the addition of 20 cents to the assessed
valuation of a machine worth $10, and
varying sums for machines worth other
prices. This Plasters claims is a mistake
since assessing officials have never been re
quired to consider cents. He asserts that.
heretofore. It has been customary to place
the assessments in round numbers for con
venlence In figuring. He does not contem
plate any appeal to the board. He ex
pressed his anxiety to have the work of
the state board completed so that the work
of extending the assessments may be taken
up In the counties. The board promised to
take the matter under advisement.

by the board, making the average assess

Appropriation May Not Lapse.
Deputy Auditor Cook said today that he
believed payments would be made on ex
isting contracts from appropriations made
by the legislature of 1903, even after August
81, when the appropriation would ordinarily
lapse. He said that he believed it to be
the intent of the law that such bona fide
contracts are binding, notwithstanding the
provision as to lapses.
Some of the state officers are talking of
asking the secretary of the State Printing
board to act as official lndexer for the va
nous departments In order that the re
ports issued may be properly indexed for
reference use. It Is claimed that Becretary
Frazler would have ample time to do the
work In addition to his duties in connection
with the letting of contracts.

Preparing; for Camp.
Adjutant General Culver will establish
brigade headquarters at Kearney, Thurs
day or Friday, so as to have everything in
readiness for the national guard encamp
ment, which Is to begin next week. A
detachment from the signal corps, acting
as engineers, will lay out the camp. Ar
rangements have been made to sink fifteen
driven wells to sheet water, in order to
Insure a pure water supply. The sand
is cdunted on to act as a filter bed. Under
the general direction of the medical corps
the sanitation of the camp will be attended
to with the utmost care.
Colonel C. J Bills, the Inspector general
of the guard, will be placed under service
orders. He will inspect the site of the
camp before the troops are moved out, and
during the progress of the encampment
will inspect the camp twice daily, report
lug derelictions from the rules to the com
manding officer of the regiment concerned.
Arrangements have been made for the
installation of a telephone system In the
camp, connecting the various organizations.
The brigade headquarters will be at a con
siderable distance from the regimental
headquarters, since there ) plenty of land
to permit of this arrangement.
Mnat Have Twenty Days Notice.
The bond clerk In tho office of the auditor
has found It necessary to return a consider
able number of bonds to the school districts
and other subdivisions issuing them because
of the fact that the election was not held
after the twenty days' notice required by
the statute, as Interpreted by Deputy At
torney General Thompson. According to
that official, the twenty days must be com
puted without including that set apart for
the election or that on which notice was
given. This opinion is based on a decision
rendered by the supreme court. It Is
stated that the bonds received indicate
that much misapprehension exists as to
the requirements of the statute. The do
partment has not been advised whether
any bonds will be Invalidated on that ac
An estimate by Bond Clerk Lawrence
indicates that the total registration of
public bonds of all kinds has been more

Merchandise Rqanllsatlon May Fall.
Secretary of State Galusha, who has
been the leading spirit In the movement
to equalize the assessment of merchandise
throughout tne counties, gave the idea a
setback today with the announcement that
because of lack of time it will be lmpos.-le
to secure the mercantile ratings which were
relied on as evidence. He indicated that
there is little prospect on that account of
any equalisation on merchandise assess
ments, saying that it would not be good
policy for the board to attempt the work
without having some authentic data in

that the defendants have notoriously tried

Western Frnlt Grower Gives Reports
from All Over Coantry Showlnat
Conditions nt the End
ST. JOSEFH, Mo., July SI The following
Is a summary of the condition of the vari
ous fruit crops up to the time of going to
press with the August number of the West
ern Fruit Grower. A letter Just received
from Mr. Westly Greene, secretary of the
Iowa State Horticultural society, contains
these percentages on the various fruits:
Apples, 44 per cent; pears, 27 per cent;
American plums, 6t per cent; domestic
plums, 30 per cent; grapes, 74 per cent;
blackberries, 79 per cent; fruits that have
been gathered or are being gathered: Cher
ries, BO per cent; red raspberries, 77 per
cent; black raspberries, 81 per cent; straw
berries, 85 per cent.
Mr. L. A. Goodman, secretary of the Mis
souri society. In touching on the apple sit
uation, says the prospect for a crop Is aa
In the Ozarks, 25 to 35 per cent; In central
Missouri, 20 to 30 per cent; In north Mis
souri. 15 to 25 per cent.
While this Is true we have special loca
tions where the crop will be 50 to 40 per
cent, and even the small average that the
state makes means, because of the large
number of orchards, a good many barrels
of marketable apples for sale at picking
The prospect, so far as heard from, shows
less than half a crop In New York, a little
more than half a crop in Michigan, but
still larger percentage In the new western
and Pacific states. This, says Mr. Good

will be fairly good and that It will pay to
take care of all our apples.

Peaches, of course, are a failure.
Pears a very light crop.
Plums a very good crop.

O'BRIEN WANTS MORE TIME
Chairman of Llahtlng Committee
Asks Delay btit Others Insist
on the Report.
Councllmen Evans, Huntington, Back and
Dyball vigorously opposed giving Chairman
O'Brien of the lighting committee more
time to report on the street gas lighting
bids, at the general committee of council
Monday aftern ion. The chairman explained
that he had been away In tho east on' a va
cation for four weeks and was not in a
position to make an Intelligent report. The
four members Insisted upon a return of
the papers Tuesday night. City Attorney
Breen told them they could accomplish this
only by majority vote In open meeting.
O'Brien finally declared he would send In
a report that would "make their hair curl
and Evans dared him to do this or anything
else. The chairman will probably fight the
matter out tonight.

DOCTORS for (MEN
Men of all ages, no matter In w hat walk of life, whose weakened vitality,
exhausted energies and shattered n frves tell a nKahle story, and who are In a
condition of extreme peril unless promptly rescued, caused in many cases by
Ignorance, excesses or contagion, these are the very men we want to talk to
nd help. Our special treatment will build up the system that has been shat
tered by abuses, excesses or disease and the various complications that ensue.
It is a well recognized fact that upon healthy activity of the sexual organism
depends the mental and physical well being of every person.
What can be more citable than to see a young man who Is Just budding Into
manhood drooping and fading away In the springtime of life? Disease soon
robs the face of Its color and the eyes of their brightness. The stooping form,
languid step and downcast countenance reveal to the critical eve the blight of
his existence, but this Is only the shadow or outward mark of the trouble ex
isting within, and the young man soon passes from the boundaries of health
Into the confines of disease. He is very nervous, easily confused, absent
minded, forgetful, continually possessed of doubts and fears, shy, suspicious.
Irritable, hates female society and would rather be alone. NiKlit losses, dav
drains, waste In urine and marked sexual decline almost Invurlablv follow.
The system unstrung, he has headache, backache, palpitation of the heart,
shortness of breath, dizziness, dersnged stomach, torpid liver, weak kidneys,
poor circulation and Is tired, lifeless and worn-out. He lacks ambition, con
fidence and courage, for the tremor of weakness and disease appalls his mlml
and shakes his body. The sufferer may exhibit one or more of these symptoms
or may have nil of them. They simply Indicate the ravages disease has-mado
upon the system, and the more of these symptoms a person shows the greater
the necessity for proper treatment until they have been bunlshenV

ments, an examination that will disclose your true physical condition, with

you. We have devoted many years exclusively to treating this class of
troubles, .attended with unprecedented success, and have evolved a safe and
certain cure In all cases where man's characteristic energies have become weak,
