(From a Staff correspondent.)
LINCOLN, July 14. (Special.) Ab
stracts of assessment from eighty coun
ties now on file with the secretary of the
State Board of Equalisation show a total
Increase ever the returns made by the
sume counties last year of f 7,120,1 75.91.
fclx counties reporting show a total de
crease over their assessment of last year
of tSll.134.St, leaving a net Increase In
the eighty-six counties reporting of !,
711. SSI. 42. The counties showing a de
crease are Blaine, Hooker, McFherson,
Merrick, Thomas and York. York county's
decrease Is 1324.160, but It Is explained
by the fact that In last year's returns tha
assessor made a duplication of 1500,000
worth of property, which, when subtracted,
makes lork county's assessment more
than It was last year. Four counties are
still out. They are Franklin. Gage, Klm
Lall aud Lancaster. Last year these coun
ties returned a total assessment of 2S.
CJ7.t47. Based on the counties reporting, the In
crease per county over last year Is about
t7,S61, but this average will be ma
terially Increased by the addition of Gage
nnd lancAster countloe, even though
Franklin and Kimball are returned prac
tically the same as last year, as Lancas
ter will return an excess of more than
1 1,000.009 over last year. The total as
bcasment of all property last year was
J0l,470,tl.B6. This year the assessment
bids fair to be over $312,000,000.
Tho State Board of Equalisation will
hold Its first session Monday morning to
equalise tho assessments between the
various counties. So far only a few of
the counties have expressed a desire to
appear before the board to protest over
tho assessment of some other county, but
It Is presumed, before the board concludes
its labor, a Icrge number of them will ap
pear. The Increase noted Is an Increase
over the figures made by the state board
last year. Holt county. In Its assessment
this year, haa failed to add a 10 per cent
Increase, ordered by the board last year,
f rtid when this Is done that county's figures
on file will be Increased In proportion.
The following table shows the assess
ment by counties for 106, 10 and the
Increase:

United State senator, waa severely de
nounced by a group of democrats at the
Llndell hotel Isst night and those who
most vigorously expressed their opposition
to him were two Omaha democrats who do
things. Bald one of these Omaha demo
crats: "Hitchcock msy get the 'nomination for
congress in Omsha, but he will never be
elected. I will do everything I can for
him and vote for him and at the same
time 1 will bet S5O0 he Is not elected.
"He Is the most cold blooded double
crosser I ever ssw In politics. He refused
to support Dshlman for mayor until he
was forced Into It and then he did him
as much harm as good. Now he Is jealous
of Dshlman because he Is afraid Dahlman
may want to be governor or senator.
"He double-crossed W. H. Thompson,
too, when the letter was the democratic
nominee for governor. If he thinks for a
minute the democrats of this state will
stand for him for senator he Is bsdly
fooled.
"We hsve Investigated a few of the pre
cinct votes cast In the election of dele
gates to the state convention and we have
found where Hitchcock and his followers
knifed Dahlmsn. You can put It down In
black and white not a one of those fel
lows will have anything to say about the
legislative ticket. Walt until the official
democratic vote Is published and you can
see where Mr. Hitchcock rsn way behind
Mayor Dahlman. though the World-Herald
published that they got practically the
same vote."
The other Omaha democrats voiced the
sentiment that out In the state Hitchcock
was the most unpopular alleged democrst
In Nebrsska.

position In some other state institution and
then he would be willing to resign and stop
any legal proceedings. The governor gave
out the Impression that such a suggestion
would not be acted upon, but that Dr.
Nicholson would have to get out anyway

BONES OF MAN ON RIVER BANK
Fisherman Makes Khastly Discovery
Near Falls City.
FALLS CITY. Neb., July 14. (Special )
The skeleton and some watersoaked cloth
ing, with a little money and a watch In
the pockets, were all that was left of a
laboring man who apparently wps drowned
last winter, when the remains were found
yesterday, lodged In the willows on tho
bank of the river.
The discovery waa made by Will Ehrlch,
an employe of the Bilby ranch, between
Arago and St. Dcroin, who went down to
the Missouri to fish.
Coroner Rencker and Sheriff Fenton wers
notified and went to the river and held an
Inquest. There was not much to work on,
as the man had laid on tha bank and tha
dogs had found him and eaten all th flsh
from the bonea. He evidently was between
40 and 60 yeara old and had been a laborer.
He waa dreased In overalls and wore
duck coat, heavy underwear and overahoes.
