BRAZIL CRIES OUT FOR ICE
Sooth American Republic Offers Good
Opportunity for Capital In
"How would you like to be the Ice man?"
Isaac M. Porter of New York Is nt the
Faxton having recently turned from n
vls.lt to Rrasll. He declares that is a
country of great opportunity for wide
awake Americans. And to Illustrate the
opportunities he mentioned the need of an
Ice plant in the city of Balila.
"itahtu has 2S0.niin Inhabitants," he said.
"They are a progressive people with good
homes and many of the luxuiles. Yet lr.
that land, where Ice never frcer.es they
' have scarcely any provltlon for making It.
There lr, a little one hors.3 plant there,
which turns out about St) pounds a day,
which Is so little that It's hardly worth
mentioning. It sells at about 6 cents a
pound. The people being habituated to
getting along without it, or course, do get
on without It. But if the Ice were offered
for sule there In good quantity and at a
moderate price there Is almost no limit,
I believe, to the amount that would Nt
disposed of at a price much higher than
can be secured in any American city.
"The heat there Is very enervating.
Though the thermoneter never rises above
yu degrees fahrenhelt, the humidity is so
great as to make that temperature almost
unbearable and people with weak lungs
cannot live long there."

Increase of real estate assessments In the
retail district was made before the County
Board of Equalisation Wednesday morn
ing, when John L. Kennedy, attorney for
J. I Rrandels & Sons Introduced In evi
dence tho appraised value of the Omaha
Water company plant, as fixed by the
Board of Appraisers and confirmed by thj
t'nited States court' of appeals and testi
mony as to the value of farm land In
Mr. Kennedy offered" evidence to show
the appraised value of the water plant
was $6,253,011, While It was assessed at
S3.S00.niX. He contended whatever ratio to
true value la used In the assessment of the
water company or any other taxpayer
must be used In assessing the. Brandels
property.' Additional testimony was of
fered to show that the Omaha Water com
pany was assessed ST?1,040 rn Its real
estate, making its total assessment $t,
231.040. Members of the board explained it
was the Intention of the board to take up

W. Farnam Smith and George H. Payne,
reel estate men, went on the stand and
testified to specific instances of farm land
assessed at $60 to $75 an acre, which la
worth from $90 to SloO an acre.
Legal Right of Board.
At the beginning of the hearing Chair
man Tralnor, on advice of Deputy County
Attorney Magney, overruled Mr. Kennedy's
objections to the legal right of the board
to ralBe the valuations, and the taking of
testimony was begun. Emll Brandels was
the first witness. Mr. Kennedy started to
ask him about the value of the Courtney
building owned by J. L. Brandels & Sons,
when Ure interrupted.
"After talking the matter over I am free
to say I think we have done wrong In rala.
Ing tho Courtney corner. I would be op
posed to raising that corner."
Mr. Kennedy continued the examination
of the witness, however. Mr. Brandels' es
timates of the value of the various pieces
of property as compared with the asses

Mr. Brandels placed a valuation of $500,000
on the new bu.'ldlng. On cross-examination
he admitted it had cost $750,000, but said It
could be built now for $260,000 less than It
had cost. He quoted John Latenser as say
Inrf the building could be reproduced for
$300,000. '' In explanation he said because
they had pushed the construction of the
building and had worked plastering gangs
day and night, the plastering alone had
cost them $40,000 more than It otherwise
would have' dohe. Over $20,000, he said,
was spent In jSrotectlng the New York Life
building wlien the foundation was put
down. Tho temporary roof and other work
which did not add value to the building,
he declared, Increased Its cost very much
above what It would ordinarily have been.
Value of Stock In Store.
He estimated the value of the stock of
goods In the dry goods, shoes and clothing
departments, the only ones owned by the
Brandels company, at between, $200,000 and
$300,000. He asserted the store did a larger
business on a smaller stock than any other
store In the west. Dry goods, he asserted,
have declined In value from S3'4j to 40 per
cent since last February.
W. Farnam Smith's testimony related
wholly to the value of farm land. He
cited one farm worth $150 an acre, a
sessed at $76; another worth $112 to $123 an
acre, assessed at $75; another worth $100,
assessed at $00; another assessed at $114,
which he said had recently sold for $225.
He presented a list of a dozen or more in
stances of a similar nature. George II.

ADLER MAKES NEW MOTION
Argues Through Attorney
Sot Punish for Receiving: Goods
I ndrr Value of f!tB. ,
Asserting It Is not a crime In Nebraska to
receive stolen property under the value of
$35. Frank L. Weaver, attorney for Sam
Adler, who was recently! convicted In crim
inal court, has filed a motion for the dis
charge of Adler. The motion In based on
on apparent omission of the statutes to
provide for cases where the property value
Is under $35.
Adler vwas convicted under an Informa
tion charging him with receiving $60 worth
of property stolen from a store In Florence.
The Jury, however, Is Its verdict fixed tho
value of the property at only $10. The man
who stole the property had previously been,.
convicted, the jury finding Its value to be
$46. As the Adler jury determined the
value to be only $30 Adler's lawyers contend
lie ha not been convicted of a crime.
They have filed a motion to be allowed
to withdraw the motion for a new trial and
assert unless the request for the discharge
of Adler Is sustained they will apply for a
writ of habeas corpus.

that the governor of Minnesota could be

of the Burlington road. This will be about
88 per cent of an average yield, or 6 per

average or 2 per cent more than a week

GERMANY TOJTAX BACHELORS
Kaiser Gove--men t Contemplates
Method as Means' of Equalising
Burdens of State.
"In Germany they are considering placing
a tax on bachelors," said Joseph Koch of
New York at the Rome. Mr. Koch recently
made a visit to Germany.
"The Germans are going about the matter
In a practical and straightforward way.
This matter has been mentioned before, but
has always been more or less of a Joke.
The Germans intend It as no Joke, but on
the contrary they are going about in in
grim earnest. They are a people ef econ
omic temperament and the Teuton is quick
to see If his neighbor Is bearing less of the
expense or responsibility of the state than
he. The married man there has sized up
his bachelor neighbor who supports no
wife, rears no children and often has no
property to pay taxes upon.. And the re
sult is that a tax will be placed upon the
bachelors. That is almost a settled fact In
"It Is no more than right, and I believe
other more conservative nations will follow
the example of Germany in this respect.
Whether it will have any effect upon the
bachelors, whether it will cause them to
'mend their ways.' come to the mourners'
bench and accept the gospel of Benedict
remains to be seen. And even though race
suicide tendencies be not ended, the coffers
of the state will not suffer at any rate."
BRAILEY IS ON THE WARPATH
Sheriff Wants to Find Impostor Pre
teudiuK to Re One of Ilia
Sheriff Brailey would like to run across
a certain heavy-set man with a German
accent, a deputy sheriff's star and a light
moustache. If the sheriff should happen
to come up with a man answering this
description the probabilities are there
would be something doing.
Repeated complaln's have been made to
the sheriff's office that tho above described
person la filching unsuspecting express
men. One old man reported he had been
approached by the man who said he was
about to pull a "blind pig" at Sixteenth and
Pierce and wanfed him to haul the liquor
for him. The two went to the place and
the "deputy" excused himself and has not
since showed up. Tho old expressman
waited an hour or two and then camo back
He was more successful with Harry Mc
Biidc, an express wagon driver. This time
his "'blind pig" was located at Ninth and
Bancroft. The two drove out there and
the supposed deputy excused himself after
borrowing $1 of MeErlde. McRrlde is still
looking1 for him. '
