Mortensen Sees Vindication.
From the fact that the Iowa State Board
of Assessment Increased the valuation of
the Northwestern railroad $1,000,000, State
Treasurer Morteneen feels that his position
that the road should be raised In this state
l.as been sustained. At the last session of
the Nebraska board Mr. Mortensen tried
, f In vain, to get the Northwestern
raised. In his endeavor he had the co-
1 operation of Governor Mickey, but the
other three members of the board held the
earnings of the road would not Justify an

treasurer's office Is that I was unable to
get the Northwestern road assessed at Its
proper value. It Is valued now away be
low what It Is worth and I hope the next
board will see Its way clear to Increase
Its assessment. The Northwestern road Is
pretty clever and has managed to get along
with little trouble over Its assessment.
think thero should have been an Increase
of at least $M0 a mile this year to make
Us assessment In proportion to the other
roads of the state. There should be
inference, I think, of about $5,000 between
the actual value of the Northwestern and
the Burlington, whereas there Is a dlffer-
mce of about $S,00O.

assessment of this road about $1,000,000.
This Increase Is due, no doubt. In a large

Loup River Country Flooded In the
BROKEN BOW. Neb., Aug. .-(8peclal
Telegram.) One of the heaviest rainfalls
In years occurred In this port of the county
during last night. Nearly three Inches of
water fell in a little over three hours. As
near as can be learned little serious dam
age was done to the surrounding country,
owing to tha small amount of wind ac
companying the storm. In this city side
walks were floated, foot bridges washed
away, foundations undermined and cellars
converted Into subterranean pools. The
small creek overflowed its banks and a
large lake divided the north and south
sides of town.
LOUP CITY, Neb., Aug. ".-(Special Tele

storms which ever visited this section oc
curred last night, accompanied by almost
a cloudburst. This morning the Middle

thirty-two years, according to the oldest
Inhabitants. The storm was even more
severe up the valley, a fall of six Inches
being reported at Arcadia, Sargent and
other points, the B. A M. morning pas
senger being indefinitely delayed by wash
outs. No fatalities are reported, but the
storm played havoc .with the country lines
of the telephone companies.
PF.CATUR. Neb., Aug. . (Speclal.)-The
hardest rain ever witnessed In this sec
tion fell here this forenoon about 11 o'clock.
It was In the nature of a cloudburst, ns
the heaviest part of the water came from
the northwest of town and the creek run
ning through town from the west over
flowed its banks and fully a foot of water
was running down Main street, south from
the bridge, for upwards of twenty minutes.
All the business places on the east side
of Main street had fully an Inch of solid
mud on their walks after the water had
subsided. The rain has been general here
for the past three days, quite an amount
falling every day. The small grain that
Is down will be vreatly damaged and
threshing will be greatly istarded as a
result of so much water.
