(From a Buft Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. July JO. County Assessor
Miller of Lancaster county, charged before
the State Board of Equalization this after
noon that the wholesale merchants of
Omaha had endeavored to get the whole
sale merchants of Lancaster county to
enter Into a combination to keep down as
sessment on this class of property, and h-s
also requested the board not only to ln
vestlgsto the assessment of wholesale
r.ouses In Omaha, but In Lincoln as well,
charting that the Lincoln wholesalo houses
were under assessed.
Mr. Miller wns asked for the names of
the Omaha merchants who had made a
proposition to the Lincoln merchants, but
he said he did not know. A letter con
cerning the combination, he said, had been
received by J. E. Miller.
In his talk to the board Mr. Miller merely
ra'd Lincoln merchants had gone before the
county board here and asked for reductions
tn th" ground that Omaha wholesale mer
chants had been undervalued, though lie
himself did not know what the Individual
assessments were In Omsha. At the re
quest of the board Mr. Miller later In the
jiy made his complaint In writing, and
I he bourd derided to summon Omaha wit
neares and give them a hearing Wfdr.es
diy. Mr. JTIiler Slid the Lincoln nvelianta
had figured the Omaha wholesale houses
were undervalued In comparison with Lin
cister merchant on the basis of the
amount of business done by the different
Aims. On this basl. taking one-seventh
of the sale as the value. Miller siild, Mc
Ccrd Bmrty should have been assessed
for HW.'W, wheresr. he thought, though he
d:1n't know, the firm was assessed for $360,-
Mr, Miller also brought out the Inter
est ng fact that Reymond Bros, ft Clark,
the firm that made the protest Hgalnst
Douglas county, were assessed In 1934,
JC.S26; In 1905, 137,000. and In 19n, r.(0), a
lediieMen cf about M.orfl In the last two
years. Miller thought the firm was under
assessed. 1 im satisfied," said Mr. Miller, "the
soi ill merchants In Omaha and Lincoln
sre ursessed all right, but the wholes3le
1 nuses are not high enough In either town.
The 1 incoln merchants In some way have
r-sn.ir.ed to get the county .board to make
reductions, and the state board should do
pomrthlng to hrlng them to time or we will
sorn be beck to the same ondltlon we
were In under the old assessment law. It
I not the little fellows but the big fel'owa
who are escaping. When I found the beard
was going to reduce the big firms I called
cn J. E. Miller and told him he could get
p reduction ss the rest of them were. Mr.
Miller, however, refused to ask for the re
duction and his assessment Is about the
only one tlint Is right among the big mer
chants In this county."

Returns Donohoe Moier
Governor Mickey this afternoon received
a draft from L. H. Harding of Omaha
for H3.85 with a letter explaining the
money had been left with him by Detective
Donohoe. Mr. Harding explained that he
had advanced Donohoe the money to de
fray the expenses of getting a prisoner
from Kansas City and Donohoe told him
the state would refund the money as
soon as the proper voucher had ben filed.
Donohoe. he said, had left the money with
his bartender but had not told him what
It was for. Later, be wrote, he saw the
notice In the paper about the affair and
had returned the money at his first oppor
tunity so the governor could put It where
It belonged. He also Informed tne govern
or he thought Donohoe had not Intended to
get anything that was not due him.
Hall Damage Corn.
Governor Mickey returned from Polk
county today and said the hall storm there j
had done considerable damage to corn,
beating the stalka to the ground. The
storm covered a space ot tnree nines
Ide and extended from Silver Creek
throueh Shelby clear to Surprise.
Committee to Meet Bryan.
Mayor Brown, accompanied by a party
of democrats, will go to Jew xors; 10
greet William J. Bryan. They probably
will leave Lincoln August 24. According to
the announcement made today the follow
ing will go: Mayor F. W. Brown, Mayor
Watzke, Humboldt; Mayor Wood. Tecum

Burke. Friend; Dr. P. U Hall. Lincoln,
John G. Maher. Lincoln; J. H. Wlnter

coln. Mayor Gerlng of Plattsmouth may
possibly go. Dan Stephens, Kdgar Howard,
both of Fremont, and P. E. McKlllip, of
Humphreys, will go from Fremont.
Rnlo Not General.
Though his friends are Insisting on Dr.
Wl.nnett naming his delegation at once.
Norrls Brown had not yet named his
Buffalo county delegation to the slate con
vention. The News-Journal, the Brown
boosters, have been demanding that no
vest pocket delegation go, but so far they
have failed to Jar loose the Buffalo county
delegation and It la still In Mr. Brown's
vest pocket. Today the attorney general
said he was In correspondence with some
of the parties who will likely be on the
delegation, but he had not yet taken action.
Browa Makes Denial.
Norrla Brown takes exception to the
statement in The Bee that he was delin
quent In the campaign contribution levied
on him as attorney general, although he
admits that he paid only half of his as
sessment of 1905. His newspaper organs
here wax Indignant over what they term
a canard and try to excuse him for not
paying the other half of his assessment on
the ground that he canvassed the state
In behalf of himself and associates without
asking the committee to pay him.

REFUSES TO INSTRUCT fOR BROWN
E. K. Good, Candidate for Stato
Treasarer, Aothorlae to Select
the Delegation to State
AUBURN, Neb., July 30. The Nemaha
county republican convention today In
structed Its delegates to the congressional
convention to vote for the renomination
of Congressman Pollard. A resolution to
Instruct the state delegation for Brown
for senator was voted down. The Instruc
tion for Pollard, taken In connection with
similar Instructions already taken In Cass
and Lancaster counties. Is taken to Insure
him a majority of the congressional con
vention and a renomination.
The convention organized with B. H.
Bailey as chairman and W. 8. Crlcbton
secretary. The congressional fight was the
principal Issue. Congressman Pollard and
Judae Jessen were both on the around i
early this morning and the partisans of J
each were busy until convention time.
Both aspirants addressed the convention.
A resolution to Instruct the delegates to
the congressional convention to vote for
Pollard carried by a vote of 61 to 47.
So Apologies to Make.
Mr. Pollard, In his speech, explained
to the convention that he was sworn In as
congressman at the same time as the oath
was taken by the other congressman, that
he served the same length of time as the
other members and under the statutes of
the United States was entitled to the same
salary and that he had no apology to make
and stood on his record.
A resolution Instructing the delegstlon to
the state convention for Norrls Brown for
United States senator was badly defeated,
but no other preference was expressed for
A resolution carried authorising E. E.
Good, as candidate for state treasurer, to
select his own delegation. Mr. Good hss
not yet made his selection.
The following ticket was nominated: For
state representatives, Charles D. Parker

Evans Gets Platte.
COLUMBUS. Neb., July 30. (Special. ).
In the primaries held today the scrapping
was as to' who would have the delegates,
between Carroll D. Evans, candidate for
United States senator, and W. A. McAl
lister, candidate for railroad commissioner.
In the Third ward of the city, 1n which
both candidates reside, the Evans ticket
won out, the vote standing S3 for Evans
and 55 for McAllister. The First and Sec
ond wards had but one ticket, and It Is
presumed they are Evans men and that
the whole county primaries have gone In
the same ratio. In that case the convention
will Instruct for Evans for senator and Mc
Carthy for congress.
