Pensions for. Federal Employes.
OMAHA, Neb . Jul SI. To the Editor of
The Bee: I wliih to refer to an editorial
which appeared lit your paper a short time
ago In regard to civil service pensions.
You have tha wrong Idea when you say
It will cost the United States treasury mil
lions of dollars. It will not cost tha gov
ernment one cent. The plan la 'to take
(and It la estimated that S per cent will do
It) out of the salary of each employe each
month, which will create a fund sufficient
to permit an employe after twenty years'
service to retire on half pay and would
compel employea to retire when they reach
the kge of 60 or 66 yeare, or when they
become Incapacitated after five years ser
vice. It Is after careful atudy estimated
that from I to 6 per cent of the wanes
of employea will do as above stated with
no expense to the government, although the
rovernment becomes the custodian of the
funds. A law of this character wmfM be a
great bleaslrg to every person In the em
loy of the government It says to those
, f-T.o a
are employed by It you must save from
per cent of your wages and when you
become old you will be taken car of by
tha government -to the extent of one-half
vour pay There are perhaps a few em
ployes who would aay we do not want
anything taken out of our wages, but they
do not study Into the matter, or It la those
who live up to every cent of their salary
and when they become old think the gov
ernment should not turn them out, and yet
they are unable to perform their duties
..Droperly. This law would be one of the
grandest blessings that could befall the em
ployes of the government, and the papers
and members of congress and senators who
take an acllve part In securing Its con
summation will write their names high
upon the hall of honor, and future genera
tlona will rise up and call them blessed.

TOTAL STATE LEVY IS SEVEN MILLS
rhalrmi Allen of nnnfrt Com

Meet at Lincoln Wednea.
lari September 20.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Aug. 8. (Special.) Today the
State Roard of Hnunllzatlon and Assess
ment on the motion of I-and Commissioner
Eaton nrdered an lncrense of 15 per cent
In the Pnuglas county merchandise assess
ment, rnlslng the total assessed valuation
from 11.774. 314 to $:,04Mfl on that species
of property. This action was taken as a
result of a complnint of President John E.
Miller of the Commercial club of this city,
which led to a two days' hearing at which
much testimony was Introduced by the
Lincoln merchants In an attempt to prove
their charges that Douglas county merchan
dise was assessed at only SO per cent of
Its true value. There was but little dis
cussion among the members of the board
an to the act'on taken, although Secretary
of State Oalusha stated that he felt he
could vote for a 60 per rent Increase If It
were not for the fact that many of the
small dealers had been assessed high
County Assessor Sillier of rwttglas county,
who was present when tha announcement
was made, snld that he thought It would
do. although he had felt that a larger In
crease would have a salutary effect
throughout the state and especially In the
two larger counties to compel merchants
to list their stocks at their full values
Tho Lancaster county officials admitted
that the assessment of the small merchants
at their full value made It Impossible for
the board to make a larger Increase.
Among the Lancaster county merchants j
there Is evidence of some dissatisfaction.
lnce the belief has been Inculcated that
the larger dealers In Douglas county are
grossly under assessed. According to the
tatement of County Assessor Reed before
the board the total -alue of Omaha merc
handise now on the assessment rolls, In
cluding the Increase ordered today. Is
112,607,305 as compared with a total valua
tion of $3,302,210 In Lancaster county. Reed
attained this result by Including the Items,
goods In process of manufacture," amount.
ng to $165.ono, and "all other property.
with a total of $:9fi.0O0. He stated that
nearly everything under these two sched
ules might have been classed as merchan
dise. In making the Increase the board
took Into consideration the admission of
Reed that a email Increase might, with
justice, be ordered.
Reviews Land Talnes.
Today the board reviewed land assess
ments for the last time and after some dis
cussion concluded to leave the tax rolls
with Increases In eight counties, six of
hlch had already been acted on. In all
cases the realty values have been restored
to the figures of 1904 as equalized by the
state board, and the eight counties are In
creased above the assessed valuations of
last year. The following counties wera In-
Colfax, 2 per cent; Hitchcock, 10: Lan
caster, 6; Rlchnrdson, 6; Saline, 6; Sherman
10; Sheridan, 10.
The board had considered the feasibility
of making an Increase of 6 per cent In
Hamilton county to bring It up to the aver
age In Polk county, but on the showing
made by the officials of that county the
project was abandoned. Today Governor
Mickey suggested a 10 per cent raise on
Phelps county land, but It failed to carry.
Auditor Searle advising against It, and a
6 per cent increase In Gosper county failed
for the same reason. There was some talk
of Increasing Banner and Box Btitte coun
ties, but nothing was done.
State Levy of Seven Mills.
Today the State Board of Equalization
and Assessment practically closed Its labors
by fixing the levy for the current year at
7 mills. This total Includes 4 mills for the
general fund, 1 mill under the Sheldon act
for the payment of the floating debt of the
state, 1 mill for the university, and Vt mill
for the common school fund. Last year
tha total levy was 6 mills. The Increase
Is accounted for by the additional mill re
quired under the Sheldon act. since the
general fund levy of 44 mills Is the same
aa that Imposed last year.
With the various Increases ordered
throughout the ninety counties the grand '
assessment roll of the state, as equalized,
will reach close to $304,000,000, as compared
with $294,000,000 last year, an Increase of $10.
000,000, a little more than half of which was
returned by the assessors. It Is stated that
not a county escaped an Increase In one
classification or another.
The members of the board are unanimous
In their expression of satisfaction with the
work accomplished. They say that the
schedule have undergone a thorough re
vision wherever there was any data to work
with, and It Is claimed that the result has
been to put the new amendment to the
revenue law, granting the power of classi
fication, on a sound basis. Governor Mickey
has taken the lead In the demand for the
strict application of the law this year, be
lieving that any laxness now would render
the statute Ineffective In the future.
Secretary Bennett of the board, has been
Instructed to spare no pains to have tha
certificates ready for Issuance to the coun
ties by August 8, the date, when, under the
statute, they must be completed. Bennett
today expressed some doubt aa to his
ability to do the work In that time. The
formal minutes have yet to be approved.
Invokes Civil Rights Act.
Game Warden Carter said today that he
intended to Invoke the civil rtghta act
against an Alnsworth liveryman who re
fused to hire a rig to Deputy Smith on
the ground that he Intended to use It In
the pursuit of hunters who were violating
the law. Carter has requested County At
torney Ell of Brown county to proceed
against the liveryman if sufficient evidence
can be secured. It is claimed that tho
liveryman stated to a witness that he had
the rig, but did not intend to let a warden
Hunger Has Merry Time.
Deputy Warden Hunger, who has been
at work In Madison and Brown counties,
brought hack a report of two convictions
at Johnstown, Brown county. He says
that he played the sleuth to catch the of
fenders, holding out his willingness to buy
a few plump prairie chickens as inn bait.
The men. Walter Farley and Fred Valen
tine, were fined $5 each. During the t:li;ht
someone hurled a stone or cinder throiglt
Hunger's window, the latter believes, to
even up the score.
At Tilden Hunger captured a trammel
net and a aelne which was being used by
a party of six men, who were placed under
arrest. Under the cover of darkness they
escaped from the officer, but the depart
ment baa clues to their Identity and will
order prosecutions. One' of the men was
recognized. Hunger says that a crowd of
sympathisers with the men whose nets
were confiscated, paraded the streets and
ought to secure entrance to his room at
Hames More Delegates.
