LOCAL JOBBERS INDIGNANT
Pronounce Falie Enmors of Proposed Oom-!
bine With Lincoln Wholesaler.
READY TO FACE BOARD ON TAX MATTER
Omaha Merchants Inabie to Aceoant
for Persistent Ksoeklsg by
Dealers la the State Insti
At noon Tuesday none of the Omaha
Jobbers who are to appear before the State
Board of Equalisation Wednesday had re
ceived the summon, though some ot them
said they expected It before the day was
over. The heads of several of the firms
concerned will go to Lincoln In person If
notice to appear there Is received; others
declare they will send their lawyers.
Indignation was rife among the Jobbers
when it was learned Tuesday morning
that the protests of the Lincoln merchants
before the State Board of Equalisation
on the assessment of Omaha houses had
borne fruit and that the Omaha men were
to appear before the board.
"It looks Just as though Lincoln wanted
Omaha to pay the taxes of the entire
state," said one of the largest local ship
pers. "We are assessed higher than the
Lincoln houses In proportion to the amount
of stock carried and I cannot see why
they should keep knocking at us. About
$1XKJ,OUO of money derived from taxation In
Omaha Is now spent In Lincoln In the state
Institutions annually and I should think
that would make the Lincoln merchant
more charitable toward our people here.
Take away the state Institution from
Lincoln and what would be left?
Stock Now at Pnll Valne.
Another thing the Jobbing house have
their atock assessed now at full value,
and the statements that their taxes are
lighter than those of the small merchant
Is untrue. It is also notably true that the1
local Jobbing houses pay a higher tax
than those In any city of the country. I
have figures which show the taxes are
only about one-fifth as large In Kansas
City as In Omaha and about as low In
comparison In St. Louis, Minneapolis and
St. Paul. New York Jobbers pay much
lighter taxes than Omaha."
None of the Jobbers knew anything of
an attempt on the part of the wholesale
merchants of Omaha to make a combina
tion with Lincoln" merchants to keep as
sessment down on their property. One
aid the report grew out of a conversation
one Omaha man had with a Lincoln mer
chant on assessment, but thst no proposi
tion had been made and that the man was
not In Lincoln as a representative of
Omaha wholesale Interests.

business on the strength of the rate of
which the Omaha Qrain exchange is com
plaining, while on the other hand the
Omaha dealers are doing all the business.

the Omaha cuts, which will be effective for
ten days, but they did not see fit to do it
snd Omaha is getting the benefit."
