Heywaid O. Leavitt, president of the
I.eavltt plant, said Tuesday morning:
"The plant lias been established about six
years and was built at a cost of $1,277,000,
exclusive. of the land, and was bonded for
over hair a. million dollats. TJiere is
preferred stock and 1300,000 common stock,
I lie capacity of the plant Is l.luo tons of
beets per day. equaling 270,000 pounds of
sugar per day. Its original capacity was
for 509 tons of beeta per day and has since
been Increase to Its present capacity. It
va operated laat year at an expense of
.'20,000, 85,000 tone of beeta were worked up,
from which. 196 pounds of granulated sugar
were obtained per ton of beets, against 270
pounds 0 sugar net" ton of beets the year
before. Eighty per cent of the crop of beets
Is now derived from irrigated lands and for
the first time In the history of the plant the
beets last year failed to ripen and mature
1m Nebraska, t'tali and Colorado because
et the weather In the fall being warm, moist
and cloudy. Instead of bright and cool, un
dr which latter conditions the beets best
ripen and mature. Hence the output for
, Mie ,ver 1M, was approximately 75 per cent
lews than the previous year. '
To save the Plant.
' "The appointment of a receiver ha been
asked to conserve the property for the bene,
fit of tho creditors, to Insure the contlnu
ance of tbe plant In operation and to secure
to the farmers payment for their beets
grown and delivered thl year. Tty the up
' rolntment of the receiver at tills time the
perpetuity of the plant Is assured and the
farmers will be paid for their beets and the
plant continue In operation. It Is necessary
, that this be done at flits time, as the period
, Is now at hand for planting beets and any
dehiy would be fata).
"The receiver can Issue receiver's certlfl
rates for beets and work which Jake prece

"The plant paid out last year for labor

The HuiUngt'in railroad has prepared Its 1
first crop and soil report for the Nebraska '
districts of that road, compiled by reports ,
from the various superintendents along tbe
lines. The reoort for the week ending
May 7, says: t
The soil thrnuahout this district ss well
snaked with moisture during the full of
1!6. During Ix-cemher there was medi
cally no precipitation and lemtierature waa
hove normal. For Jnnnarv. 1. the tem
perature averaged degrees abov normal
and precipitation Has again below normal.
February rep. u ted the condition of two
previous months, that Is. temperature was
oove normal and moisture below. March
reversed condition, us tho temperature
veraaed X degrees below normal and prc-
ipitntlon aertiged seventy-two hundredths
1 an men itlaive. During April ralnrnll was
exceptionally heavy and temiierature was
liKhtly above normal. These conditions
ave brought us un to the llrst of May with
oil and vegetation in excellent shape In
pile cf three drv. warm winter months.
Below Is given rainfall In Inches for April
nd separately for nrst live days ot May;
Iso as a matter of comparison rainfall
for April. 1. at a number of statlona in
he district, as shown by government re-
poitg. The precipitation for April, this
ear, is taken from dailv reports made to
th's office by our agents. The federal
authorities are very conservative, and will
not let anything go Into their lwnoanent
record unless satisfied that it Is absolutely
correct, so that the difference In rainfall for
April, HK6 and 1101, probably was not so
great as figures below Indicate. e could
not make the comparison from our own re
ports of last year without conldoru.ble
extra work.
There is but one opinion as to winter
wheat crop. It i uniformly In excellent
ondltlon. While Decemlier. January and
February wero drv months, the ground waa
so thoroughly soaked at the beginning of
DeeemlMT, ami there has been so much
moisture since the first of March, that the
crop has not suffered for moisture, un
wymore division the acreage is praciicauy
he same as last year. On IJncoin division
reports Indicate that the acreage is 10 per
ceqt to 20 per cent greater than .laat year.
On Kansas branches of McCook division
he acreage is probably b per cent greater
han last year: on other parts ol that
division the acreage ia thought to be some
what less. There are no reports of damage
from Hessian fly nor damage of any kind.
In short, the prospwts for a good crop of
winter wheat could hardly be better at thla
season of the year in this territory.
Flowing for corn la progressing rapioiy
wherever the cron Is raised In this district.
On Wymore division, especially In the east
ern and southern parts or mo uivision.
where the season is always somewhat In
advance of Lincoln and McCook divisions,
considerable corn has been planted. There
hna Also been a small amount Of corn
planted on the McCook division, especially
on Kansas nrancnes. m iincoin aivimon
nractlcallv no corn hus been planted. On
tncnln and Wvmnre d visions Indications
are that the acreage will be about the same
as last vear. There Is undoubtedly more
ground each year coming tinder cultivation
hut at the same lime tne crops are necom-
ing more diversified, and the acreage, for
that reason, of wheat and corn does not

no doubt, been stimulated on Lyons branch

I.eRoy Kdmrdi from I. eland Stan
ford, Jr., I nlveralty Tell of
Hia Kxnerlenrea.
LeKby Kdwards of the Inland Stanford,
Jr.. university arrived In Omaha yesterday
from San Francisco and la visiting hla sister
Mrs. C. C. Chase, 1M North Thirty-eighth
avenue. . Having seen much service with
300 of hla cluaamatea from the university in
the relief and vigilance work at Sun Fran
cisco, Mr. Edwards received many Imprea
sions of the great disaster.
"The work of looking after the unfortu
nate ones and distributing the supplies wag
such an enormous task that it is hard to
do the gubject Justice. About JO0 of the
students from the university arrived at
Ban Francisco ou the morning following
the earthquake," said Mr. Kdwards laxt
evening. 1
One of the moat Interesting things brought
out In a conversation with Mr. Kdwards
waa that Dr. Branner. professor of geology
at the university, gave a lecture six months
before the earthquake and outlined certain
faulty formations In the earth's surface
near San Francisco. After the earthquake
It waa discovered that many large, fissures
had formed along lines Indicated by tbe
professor six months before.
Mr. Edwards was at first stationed in tli
Mission district, where he served lu the
distribution of supplies and on a vigilance
committee. Later he was transferred to the
Presidio. In his district of the Presidio he
estimated that 5,000 persons were oared for.
Everything, he said, waa wonderfully sys
temiaed. The .various supplies were class
ified and families were registered, so that
It was known each day what they received.
Rich and poor called for food and clothing.
Many women were glad to wear woolen
shirts orlginaly Intended for men. Mr. Ed
wards said he noticed many rich' women
heavily veiled to conceal their Identity.
In apeaklrg of the Lelaud Stanford, Jr.,
university Mr. Kdwards said tlie main and
essential buildings were not seriously dam.
aged. The university will be able to re.
unit In September.

Lack of lot Cream Jan Serenity of Bamoat
Alley 8ooial Function.
Money la Kntrnated to Another Belle.
crlptlnn for a More Ks
hlleratlna Dellrary.
The social life of Ratncai alley again
has been rent from stem to stern and cen
ter to circumference, also from the car
tracks to the solitary lamp postt which
sheds Its radiance In tnngent wwys over
the select precincts of the alley. Some
times the boy does not light the lamp, and
then there is no radiance.
vTwo months ago business In the alley
waa suspended by an untoward happening
In the lives of four of Ita habitues, and
no Kooncr had commercial and social con
fidence been re-established than another
outbreak occurred to set the dial of the
alley back two years, four months and one
week. The latest morsel for the scandal
mongers happened Monday evening about
the eighth hour, at which time the gayest
of the alley usually doffs Its working
clothes and makes merry with the sounds
of banjos, mandoline or brass knuckles, as
the case may be. Beer and ginger ale
and other condiments are frequently em
ployed until the lid goes on at the stroke
of If.
Mise Mary Chattnan, colored, one of this
seasons debutantea of the alley, naa a
function billed for Monday evening on the
social calendar of Ranioat alley. Miss
Chatman received at her borne and was
charmingly arrayed In Nile green silk,
trimmed with white. Everything went
along as smoothly as a candy distribution
at a Sunday school picnic until someone In
the crowd hinted that the host might
have provided Ice cream for tbe guests.
Pickles and pork chop sandwiches were
they argued, well enough In their way,
but a well-detined sentiment w expresswd
that Ice cream would lend eclat to the oc
casion and serve to equailxe the effects
of the pork chops and pickles. So Hostess
Chatman gathered a few of her exclusive
set to one side and broached the Idea of
subscribing for a gallon of Ice cream, as
she had Jusf had the chimney repaired
and did not think the buying of Ice cream
would go well with her Income.
Miss Addle Thomas, one of (he guests,
promptly offered to act as custodian of
funds offered for th ice cream. Mlas.Chat
man gave Miss Thomas 10 cents as her
hare and It began to look as If all hands
would be eating the frogen delicacy before
the hour had passed.
Miss Thomas was sent for the Ice cream.
The guests waited long and patiently for
the promised treat, which did not come. At
length MUs Chatman thought Miss Thomas
had been run over by a street car or held
up by footpads, who slugged tho woman
and stole the Ice creani. So Mls Chatman
Started out for the dilatory guest, who waa
discovered by the host at the rear of the
house drinking beer with two companions.
There wa no Ice cream In sight. It devel
oped Miss Thomas expended the Ice cream
money for beor In n unguarded moment
in a saloon. Just what pasaed between
host and guest will be brought out before
the people's bar at a later date. It was re
ported, however, that Miss Thomas slapped
Miss Chatman with the beer pall and then
the party broke up with disgust and no ice
Miss Chatman waa at the people' bar
bright and early Tuesday morning. She
told her story and City Prosecutor Lee Bled

B. A. Reagan and Miss Dollle Dugan
could not agree Monday evening on the
question of why the ocean Is built so close
to the shore, which question was pro
pounded some time ago by a comic opera
comedian. Reagan and Miss Dtigan were
arrested by Patrolmen Dibble and Bgan on
the charge of drunkenness and disturbing
the peace of IRS Cass street by fighting.
The police Judge fined Reagan K and costs
and tho woman $1 and costs. The property
loss was small. Miss Dugan received a
scratch over her left eye.
luis Johns was tried Tuesday morning
in police court on the charge of stealing
fifteen yards of silk goods from the Boston
store. The defendant pleaded not guilty
and stood trial, at the conclusion of which
Acting Police Judge Foster sentenced the
man fifteen days. Johns waa, arrested by
Special Officer Orler.
Hoclnllr Ball Was a Great arcesa,
bnt Attendance Less Than
Lovers of dancing were given a treat
and the Ban Francisco relief fund received
a boost, although a regrettably slight one,
at the ball given by the Omaha Musicians'
association at the Auditorium Monday
night. The event was a repetition of the
annual ball ot local union No. TO, Asso
ciated Federation of Musician, which waa
such a success Inst winter. It waa the
belief that the same, or even greater,
patronage would be accorded a repetition
of the annual ball, because of the praise 11
awakened at that time, but In this the
management waa greatly disappointed.
Where there were thousands' at the former
event, there were but hundreds Mouday
evening, and this becomes more disappoint
ing through the fact that the purpose of
the ball waa to raise money for the suf
ferers In Ban Francisco, every cent of the
profit going Into the fund.
The total sale of tickets did not go over
3(0. While this was a matter of regret
when the intent of the event waa con
sidered. It added to th enjoyment of those
who attended, a there waa no crowding
at any time. It waa a gay ssseniblage,
made more gay by the excellent music.
Fully tfo Omaha musicians played In the
orchestra, each man donating hla time for
the occasion: Those who were already
booked for the evening filled thvir engage
ments and then went to the Auditorium,
while the others declined to make any date
for Monday evening. The gratuitous effort
of the musician was worthy of greater
appreciation than It. apparently received.
Jultu Meyer acted a master of cere
monies and Robert Cuscaden as chairman
of th commute on arrangements, the same
as for the annual ball. The committees
were all practically rr.adn up as for th
former event.

City this evening on the Empire State 1
Express, a regular train of the New York
Central, he will have broken all records
cross the continent, having made th
entire distance In seventy hours and fifty-one
minutes. The trip was made by spe
cial train from Oakland to Buffalo, when
the regular train of the New York

The bent previous record for a trip
cross the continent was made In 117
when Jarrett, Palmer's fast Transconti
nental train made a run from New York
to San Francisco. .Tho time for thla train
on the Vnlon Pacific was forty-one miles
an hour. Including stops, and forty-four
and eight-tenths miles an hour, excluding
stops. The tnaxlum rate attained betweon
stations waa seventy-two mile an hour.
The time of the llnrtiman special on the

Opeed of M.1 miles an hour. This would
have been much raster had not consider-
ble time been lost because of six track

The run from North Platte to Omaha, a
distance of mile was made In 4
hours and 39 minutes, an average speed of
Kl.t per hour. The average speed between
North Platte and Orand Island was 6.5
per hour. The train from North Platte to
Lexington, a distance of sixty miles was
made in 60 minutes, or 72 miles an hour for
the distance. Mr. Harrlman's watch caught
several miles at over eighty-two miles an
hour, the speed Indicator on his car being
broken. This was confirmed by the speed
recorders on the other car.
Mr. Harriman' special reached Buffalo

The character which Virginia Urew Tres
cott portrays In "When Knighthood Was
In Flower," that of the madcap, Mary
Tudor, Is absolutely historical, though a
statement to the contrary has been made
since the play was brought out. Nearly
four centurlea ago "Princess Mary" was a
very real and decidedly alive young person,
whose beauty and temper were common
objects of adoration and awe on the part
of all Englishmen, of both high and low
degree. This beautiful play will be seen
at the Krug three nights and Saturday mat
inee starting Thursday night, May in.
The new members of the Woodward Stock
company at the Burwood have made a moat
favorable impression and the success of the
play this week ha been more than assured
by the large audiences that have assembled
at each performance.
