(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Oct. I. (Special ) This after
noon. In the office of Attorney General
Brown, testimony In the case Involving
the taxation of the Woodmen of the World
reserve was taken before Minor Bacon,
who had been named a special commis
sioner by the supreme court. County As
sessor Reed of Douglas county. County
Clerk Drexel and Secretary a. V. Ben
nett of the State Board of Equalization
and Assessment were on the stand for the
purpose of Identifying' the records which
will be offered In evidence. It Is believed
that the argument will be made before the
supreme court Monday, October 16, al
though further evidence may be taken In
the event either party wishes It.
Attorney General Brown spent consider
able time In the examination of County
Assessor Reed,, endeavoring to bring out
an admission that he had deducted the
12,000,000 reserve and the cash In the bank
when making the assessment. It develops
that the state Is proceeding on the theory
that this property was omitted altogether
from the original assessment and, there
fore, could be Included whenever the
omission was discovered, without resort
ing to the formality of an appeal from
the assessment -.It is stated that Drexel's
theory appears to be that the assessment
which was made, amounting to 17,668, pur
ported to cover the entire amount of prop
erty returned, and that, therefore, the
state board should have appealed from the
assessment In the regular way. Instead of
bringing mandamus proceedings.
Although -Reed evaded the question the
attorney general believes that the record
shows that the assessment made by Reed
applied only to the 16,000 furniture Item
and the $33, Ml of receipts. The return of
the association Included four Items, the
two assessed and $2,018,697.66 reserve In
vested and H02.1W.06 In various Omaha
banks. It Is urged now that the records
show plainly that the last two Items were
left out of consideration entirely.
Inheritance Tax Case Submitted.
The Inheritance tax case was submitted
this afternoon before the supreme court.
The suit arose out of the refusal of County
Judge -Vlnsonhaler to appoint appraisers
for the estate of Frank Murphy on th"
ground of alleged unconstitutionality, and
takes the form of mandamus proceedings.
County Attorney Slabaugh contended that
the act providing for the collection of in
heritance taxes Is valid, that It Is a tax
cn transfers and not on property, and,
therefore, does not violate the uniformity
clause of the constitution. He denied the
contention of Attorney Prltchett for Vln
sonhaler. that the law violated the state
and United States constitutions.
Ararae Cigarette Case.
The case of John Alperson against
Michael Walker, In which Alperson, a
tobacconist of Omaha, secured a writ of
A Remedy Which Has Revolutionised
. the Treat meat of Stomach Tronble.
The remedy la not heralded as a wonder
ful discovery, nor yet a secret patent medi
cine, neither is It claimed to cure anything
except dyspepsia. Indigestion and stomach
troubles with which nine out of ten suffer.
The remedy is In the form of pleasant
tasting tablets or losenges, containing vege
table and fruit essences, pure aseptlo pep
sin (government test), golden seal and
diastase. The tablets are sold by druggists
under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets. Many Interesting experiments to test
the digestive power of Stuart's Tablets
show that one grain of the active principle
contained In them is sufficient to thor
oughly digest 1,000 grains of raw meat, eggs
and other wholesome food.
Stuart's Tablets do not act upon the
bowels like after dinner pills and cheap
cathartics, which simply irritate and In
flame the Intestines without having any
effect whatever in digesting food or curing
If the stomach can be rested and assisted
in the work of digestion it will very soon
recover Its normal vigor, as no organ Is so
much abused and overworked as the
ston.ach. ,
This Is the secret. If there is any secret,
of the remarkable success of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets, a remedy practically un
known a few years ago and now the most
widely known of any treatment for stom
ach weakness.
This success has been secured entirely
upon Its merits as a digestive pure and
simple, because there can be no stomach
trouble If the food is promptly digested.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act entirely on
the food eaten, digesting It completely, so
that It can be assimilated into blood, nerve
and tissue. They cure dyspepsia, water
brash, sour stomach, gas and bloating after
meals, because they furnish the digestive
power which weak stomachs lack, and un
less that lack is supplied it is useless to at
tempt to cure by the use of "tonics,"
"puis" and cathartics which have abso
lutely no digestive power.
Stuart's Dyspepscla Tablets can be found
at all drug stores and the regular use of
one or two of them after meals will dem
onstrate their merit better than any other

habeas corpus after having been arrested
for giving away material for cigarettes,
was ordered submitted today. The case
was decided In his favor In the lower court
on the ground that the title of the act
passed by the last legislature referred sim
ply to the sale of cigarettes and not to
the giving. The court held that the body
of the act where it sought to Impose the
penalty for giving was too broad for the
title and was, therefore, Ineffective.
Cannot Do SaTlnas Business.
Secretary Royse of the State Banking
Board said today that no commercial banks
will be permitted to operate savings de
partments without organising new corpora
tions with separate capital stock. lie
stated that two Important banks In the
state have violated the statute In this re
spect, but he believes It was due to care
lessness or lack of knowledge as to the
provisions of the banking laws, which
would render them subject to forfeiture
of their charters for doing unauthorised
business and subject their officers to pun
ishment. Burkett Paid Fare.

Man Who Does Shooting Surrender
to Sheriff.
HARTINGTON, Neb.. Oct. 1 (Special
Telegram.) A serious shooting affray oc
curred nine miles southeast of Hartlngton
last night about 8 o'clock in which John
Schlevers, a young farmer, was shot in
the hip, the ball from a 32-caliber revolver
passing entirely through the right leg.
The shooting was done by a neighbor,
Roy Rankin, who came to Hartlngton last
night at 11 o'clock and gave himself up to
Sheriff Rosenberger and told what he had
done. The trouble started some weeks
ago when Schlevers took exception to Borne
remarks it Is alleged Rankin made about
his wife. Rankin went to the Schlevers
home last night to get a neckyoke belong
ing to him, and the quarrel was renewed.
Rankin alleges he started home when
Schlevers threw a stick at him, and In the
darkness he thought Schlevers was coming
toward him, and at a distance of fifty
feet he drew his gun and fired. Schlevers
was shot In the back of the leg, which
Indicates he was not coming toward Ran
kin. The Injured man Is getting along
well and will recover unless complications
et In.
A warrant will probably be Ifesued for
Rankin tomorrow and he Is today hunting
bondsmen and will probably waive prelimi
nary examination. The affair has caused
Intense excitement In the east part of the
county where the parties are well known.

Just Another Word.
OMAHA, Oct. I. To the Editor of The
Bee: In public answer to private letters on
the subject of corporal punishment in the
schools, I wish to say to the parents and
people of Omaha that they may safely rely
upon the Board of Education and Superin
tendent Davidson to stop the brutal busi
ness under such rigid rules and regulations
as will be both wise and effective. My In
formation Is definite and explicit, and
there need be no doubt about It. The Board
of Education Is composed of sound and
strong men, who are well known to me
personally, and I know that they can be re
lied upon to make good what I have taken
the liberty to here say In their behalf.
Railroad Manaement In Nebraska.
GLEN WOOD, la.. Oct. I. To the Editor
of The Bee: If the substitution by Mr.
Breen, Inadvertently, no doubt, of one
word for another calls forth from the gen
eral attorney of the Burlington In Ne
braska some remarks on English composi
tion, etc., he still has left the main charges
which were urged by Mr. Breen un
answered: First That Nebraska railroads could kill
passengers at $5,000 per canlta.
Second That this amount was never
paid, and that the usual plan Is to weary
the relatives of the victims by Intermina
ble litigation, and thereby fbree them to
accept by way of settlement any paltry
sum often $1,000 which the legal depart
ment of the railroad saw fit to give them.
Third That the railroads pay practically
no municipal taxes, aa the following figures
will show:
Total municipal taxes, 1904. $2,06,242.19.
Total railroad and telegraph, $84,856.78.
Thus the real estate owners pay 91 per
cent, and railway and telegraph lines 3.9
per cent, or, eliminating telegraph lines,
the railroads pay but a fraction over 2 per
There are many republicans who are
dissatisfied with the above state of affairs
and are turning to a study of state or gov

Military Drill at IIlh School.
OMAHA, Oct. t-To the Editor of The
Bee: Being a cadet In the Omaha High
school, I would like to express an opinion
on a matter which a week or so ago was
being considered In a good many homes
of this city and which, at the beginning
of every school year to come, will be con
sidered. This matter is drill.
There are not many boys who really en-
Joy drill. They drill because they are com
pelled to by the school, or to get a credit
point which they could In some other study
In the same time, and out of which they
would obtain more benefit.
Then, there Is the question of money.
Many families in this city cannot afford
to pay $14.25 for a uniform each year, when
there are the other clothes of the boy to
purchase also. The uniforms are so ex
cessively hot and uncomfortable as to al
most compel a boy to have civilian clothes
to wear when not drilling. A boy Is ex-
Aycr's Hair Vigor is
hair and the' hair grows. That's all there is to it.
And it is a splendid tonic to the hair, giving
the hair follicles tone and strength. This is why
it checks falling hair so promptly.
As a dressing, it Keeps the hair soft and smooth
and prevents splitting at the ends.

cused from drill if his parents cannot af
ford a uniform. But this Is the same as
dividing the boys Into two classes the well-to-do
and the poor. A poor boy Is marked
He is compelled by the school board to
admit and to show before every pupil of
the high school that bis parents are poor.
This is unjust. To prevent this, drill should
be, and In time I believe It will,' be abol
ished. When this Is done a great step
towards the Improvement of the Omaha
High school will take place.
If a military school Is wanted, have one,
but If an educational school is desired,
have one without compelling the students
to drill If they wish to attend the school. I
have known boys to leave the Omaha High
school because. If they remained, they
would be compelled to drill. '
If drill Is for exercise and improvement
of the boys physically (If a person at
tended an annual encampment they would
see It could not be an improvement mor
ally), there can be obtained at the Toung
Men's Christian association In this city a
better form of exercise at a much lower
price to take the place of drill.
