In compliance with the request of George
Jfv. Thompson, poll tax collector. City Bollo

opinion aa to the liability of letter carriers,

The opinion follows:
Our poll tax law require specified labor
upon the highways, upon notice given by
you aa collector, or by a satisfactory sub
stitute or the payment of $2 iu cash. I am
not able to find that this question haa been
directly decided and am of the opinion
that If an employe of the government were
required to perform labor, without the pro
vision as to the payment of the poll tax.
such employe would be exempt.
The supreme court of the United State
it Dobbins against Commissioner of Erie
county has decided that a person whose
salary-Is fixed by congress is exempt from
payment of an occupation or Income tax,
but this was a tax upon the salary or In
come of a naval officer, and was an at.
tempt te tax a post or position having a
alary emolument and was not uniform
with respect to all cltlaena. In Melchsr
against Boston the court held that clerka
and Utter carriers In postofflce are not
officers and that the case of . Dobbins
against Commlmloner does not apply even
where the tax Is upon a salary.
The poll tax In Iowa being a per capita
tax. and not a service or Income tax, would
rot. In my Judgment, be such a tax as
would Interfere with federal agents so as
to exempt employes of the government,
there being no attempt to hinder their serv
ice or te tax them according to their sal
aries or emoluments from the government
It Is my opinion, therefore, that all persons
In the employ of the federal government,
who are residents of the city snd who are
not otherwise exempt, are subject to the
payment of this lax.

committeemen, "They are enjoying an era
of prosperity and they do not want to take
any chances on a change."
Chairman Smith reported that the can
vass cf the county had. been completed In
all except two or three precincts and the
showing was most gratifying. Similar re
ports were made by several of the candi

TRACTION LISK 19 PROPOSED
People of Eastern Part of . City
Afcaadoa -Automobile . Idea.- -At
a meeting of the Independent Trans
portation company of this city in the rooms
of the Commercial club yesterday morning.
It was decided to abandon the proposition
to establish ao automobile bus line and In
stead to plan ' for a track railway wtth
gasoline motors or electric, cars.
Th company was organised for the chief
purpose of providing transportation facili
ties for the residents of the eastern part
of the city. Including McPherson and Ben
nett avenues, when the Omaha & Council
Bluffs Btreet Railway company decided on
the southern route for Its line to the School
for th Deaf.
A question discussed at the meeting yes
terday was whether or not the new com
pany would operate In conjunction with the
Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway
company or compete with It. A communica
tion had- been sent to the street railway
company. It waa stated by President Leahy,
aaklng whether It would be willing to Issue
transfers over such a line should one be
built, but said that the answer waa non
committal. The question of securing a .franchise waa
discussed at length and It was decided to
ask the co-operation of the Commercial club
In obtaining this. A. T. Fllcklnger, H. F.
Knudsen and F. M. Compton wera named
aa a committee to lay this matter before
the Commercial club.

New RalldlnsT for Park.
The Board of Park Commissioners will
hold a special meeting this afternoon to
consider the matter of erecting a building
n Fulrmount park, to be used In the winter
for housing the animals, and In summer
as a resting place for visitors. The only
objection. It Is said, to the proposed struc
ture. Is that Fatrmount park Is already
pretty thoroughly dotted with buildings
of one character or another which detract
from the natural beauty of the popular
resort. There are also many of the opinion
that the herds of elk and deer in Fair
mount park are becoming too Jilg and their
maintenance too costly. Much of the park
has been fenced off for their accommoda
tion, thus depriving the people of the use
of a large portion of the wooded slopes.
Plans for the proposed building, It Is un
derstood, have been drawn and It la said
that Commissioners Graham and Peterson
favor erecting It. The building, it Is said,
will be constructed ot artificial stone so
as to be permanent. It will be two stories
In height. There will be plenty of money
In the park treasury, as little was done this
summer In the way of improvements, al
though the board had promised to com
plete the bringing of the grade of the two
remaining sections of Bayliss park.

of it. He found this several feet below

from the soil by the use of a magnet, re

Nehne Is making further Investigations,

Is there In quantities profitable for work

there Is considerable difference between

stone on the south bank of the South Loup

they drove out there to Investigate It.
They found a ledge of material which had
the appearance of stone, but It is in tact a
very hard kind of clay, which when dried
can be crushed Into a powder as fine as
flour. One member of the committee
thinks It might be utillned In the manufac

Nebraska Pear by the Wagonload-The

yesterday which strained the capacity of
their salivary glands to the fullest extent
as the pear crop waa being hauled through

wagonload. Manager Lowe of the factory
haa been handling every mnd of fruit In
season, and yesterday he began the can
ning of a fine quality of pears, delivered
by several promlnentt fruit growers in
this district. Students of the State Normal
school who came from western Nebraska,
where they do not see pear grow, stood
on the street comers with mouths watering
and watched the heavily laden wagons
pass slowly by to the factory. Compara

WEBB CITY. Mo., Oct lO.-Startlng
through aoulheastern Kansas, along tut)
borders of Oklahoma, Governor Hug lie ot
New York yesterday urged the defeat of
the democratic candidate for president
among the employes of the oil wells,
smelting works, farmers and ttnc miners.
Rifle shots fired by an alignment of cltl
aena welcomed th speaker at Pittsburg,
Kan., and at another place the booming ot
cannon mingled with tho roar of the fac
tory whistles. To the workingmen Gov
ernor Hughes asserted that an attempt by
Mr. Bryan, If elected, to Introduce his
campaign proposals would Inevitably result
In financial depression and a closing down
of Industry, while the republican platform
promised continuance of present prosperity.
Speaking of "Dr. Bryan and his nos
trums," before a large audience here to
night. Governor Hughes -said In part:
"Twelve years ago t'nele 8am was sick,
and titer came bustling ut a physician who
wanted to prescribe for him. He had an at
tractive personality. He wss a fluent
talker. If anyone could sell a patent medi
cine, h could, t'nele Sam said, 'What la
It you want to give me?'
"The doctor said: "You must take free
silver, to 1; that Is absolutely necessary
for your recovery. If7 you dont take It,
"Uncle Sam Is careful and he said:
We'll tske this Into the laboratory and
we'll analyse It and see what' In It.'
"They took It In and found It was rank
poison. So Unci Sam consulted Dg. Mc
Klnley and took a tonic, and he has been
vigorous ever since.
"A few yeara later the same doctor came
around again and Uncle Sam said: 'Aren't
you the man who nearly killed me a few
years ago?' and It happened that he was
the same. UncVo Sam thought that he did
not want any of that and the doctor said:
'We must find a new remedy,' and he
traveled around th world and came back
with great prestige and said to Unole
Sam: "What you need I government own
ership of railroads.' Uncle Sam threw up
his hand and said: 'We can't stand that,'
and so we havo now some new proposals and
they are just a dangerous as those, that
they offered to Uncle Sam.
"There are varied proposals some of
minor importance and some ot great Im
portance. One of the chief proposals that
directly affects the business of th country
is that there should be a prohibition pre
venting any manufacturing concern from
making more than SO per cent of any arti
cle produced in the United State. Imagine
what would be th ffect if any arbitrary
prohibition of that sort wera put Into our
