assessment proposition. It la said the
Union Pacific tax agenta are figuring on

Advertise for Printing; Bids.
Secretary Frailer of the State Printing
board today advertised for bids for print
ing seven volumes of supreme court re
ports. This readvertlsement was caused
by the combination made by the Stafe
Journal and other big printing Arms In
Lincoln and Omaha to raise the price to
be charged the state for printing sup
pllea. Inasmuch as the prices were so
high, none of the big Arms got any work.
The board having sufficient evidence to
convince the members the Arms had made
a combination, promptly rejected the bids
and ordered the secretary to readvertlse.

I At a meeting of the educators, held in
the office of Superintendent McBrlcn this
morning. Superintendent Thomas of the
. Kearney Normal school, and W. H. Clem
, mons of the Fremont Normsl school came
very near going to the mat over a little
dispute In which the veracity of the two
men was In question. Thomas made the
remark that a teacher who had attended
the Fremont Normal for one summer had
been given a three-year certificate. Clera
mons at once denied the statement and
chased himself out of the room. He re
turned shortly and said he had had com
munication with his school and the
tescher in question had attended for 11)4
weeks. Thomas retorted that he knew
the party had been in Kearney teaching
for fourteen years. This sent Clemmons
up In the air and he demanded a retrac
tion. Thomaa gave It by stating maybe
hie Informant had been mistaken.

Commercial club of York st a meeting last
night discussed the "yueer ways of rail

Grand Island, Beatrice and York."
A number of Instances were cited of in
dustries which had been built up In, one or
other of these towns and forced to move to
other cities to obtain necessary advantages
In rates. A few years sgo Mr. Bloomer, a
resident of York, commenced the manufac
ture of wire and alat fencing and used the
old skating rink as a manufactory. It only
took Mr. Bloomer a short time to learn that
It would be Impossible to compete with
eastern manufacturers, who could ship to
Council Bluffs, la., and local out in western
Nebraska their wire fencing at less rates
than he could ship from York and thnt
manufacturers In Iowa could ship in car
load lota wire from the east laid down In
Council Bluffs at less rates than he had to
pay from Council Bluffs to York, making
his wire cost him twice the amount In
freight. Mr. Bloomer moved his plant to
Council Bluffs, la., where he operates one
of the largest manufactories of Its kind In
the United States. If the factory had re
mained at York the Burlington would re
ceive 86 per cent of the In and out freight,
whereas it probably does not receive over
15 per cent of the in and out freight of the
Bloomer plant at Council Bluffs.

AMES FACTORY WASTS BEETS
Maaaaer Says Receivership Insures
Money for the Raisers.
FRKMONT, Neb., May 12. (Special. )
Manager Bcllley of the Standard Beet
Sugar company says the Ames factory
will be run the coming season and that the
receivership Insures that. JAIl claims for
last season's beets will be paid In full and
there will be money to pay for this sea
son's beets. The company, he says, has
made money every year until 190B and the
present situation is due to the poor quality
of last year's crop. With a good season
he says, they will more than pay off all
the Aoatlng Indebtedness besides the run
ning expenses. The most of the crop of
last year came from the western part of
the state, the largest acreage being at
North Platte, and if the farmers out there
do not raise beets this season, as would
appear from the dispatches In today's Bee,
the company may be. short of beets.

Home Insurance the Best
From LIHC0LN TRADE REVIEW. Published by H. M. Buihnell,
Lincoln, Saturday, April 7, 1906.
The Trade Review cannot refrain from again talking something about
home insurance. Every time that the proposition presents Itself of the tre
mendous amount of money that has been sent out of Icbrjka for life insur
ance to eastern cities, the conviction conies home with increased force that
the home companies of this state ought to be patronized and the money ought
to remain in Nebraska. The revolution of the lat year of the way the enor
mous surplus of the big eastern companies has been handled and squandered,
and speculated with, ounht to emphasize the fact that the people of this state,
should stop pouring their money Into eastern channels, when it can be placed
In home insurance and every dollar of it kept at home through investment in
It is gratifying to note that home insurance is, year by year, receiving
more and more Its Just deserts. The oldest strictly old line home insurance
company in Nebraska, the Rankers Life of Lincoln, is a good illustration, both
In its growth and volume of business, of what a company ran do in the went,
if its home people stay with it. The Rankers Life, which we will une for" com
parison as a home company, has now in this state $12,000,000 of insurance in
force. Only one other company, of nearly 60 companies doing business in
Nebraska, has a larger amount of insurance in force in this state, and that
company was doing business in Nebraska 2 years before the Hankers Life
waa organized. The Rankers Life in lOOS made a net gain, in round num
bers, of two million dollars of added insurance. No other company doing
business in the state made anything like such a large gain. The three New
York companies that do such a tremendous amount of business make an in
rlgniflcant showing in Nebraska husiness when compared with the Rankers
1,1 fe. The Equitable of New York lost more business in this state in 100.1
than it wrote; its insurance in force was 4 per cent less than the previous
year, and its loss in premium receipts was over 2 per rent, while the Rankers
Life gained 18 per rent in InKuranre in force and 21 per rent in gain of pre
miums over 1004. The Mutual Lite just a little more than played even In
the state in 1005, and the New York Life made only a small gain in its busi
ness, increasing its Insurance in force . per rent, against the Rankers Life's
IS, and increasing its premiums 4 per rent where the Hankers Life increased
lit per rent.
Why cannot this same record be made every year that has been made
the last year? There are a number of home insurance companies that ran
give Just as good insurance as any companies in the world, infinitely better
insurance than that given by the companies which make such a record of gross
mismanagement and corruption as tho big companies of New Y'ork City have
vmade. There will be many thousands of new policies written In this state by
Itehraaka people in 19O0, and the Trade Review wishes that every individual
who take oat a policy the coming year would carefully weigh the proposition
of the value It Is to keep his Insurance at home before be puts his name to tho
application of any insurance company. -
