brother, Monday, was appointed special ad

named to take charge of It at once. Ths
appointment will hold good until a regular
administrator can be appointed.
In the application the value of the estate
was plaoed at $08,000, but this Is believed
to be considerably less than the true value.

Aa Soldier of Fortan Sleamaa Had a
HASTINGS. Neb., Oct. l.(Speclal Tele
gram.) Sewell Sleuman waa a man of
many eccentricities, nervous and high
strung In temperament, daring to the point
of recklessness In his business pursuits and
liberal to the point of extravagance. As
a soldier of fortune he led a varied career,
hut was successful in nearly all his under
takings. At the age of 16 he ran away from his
home In Boston and came west. . For a
time he was a bootblack on a Mississippi
river steamboat. When still a youth he
took a homestead near Trumbull, a few
miles northeast of Hastings, and became a
successful farmer. He bought the first
general merchandise store In Trumbull and
later secured control of a co-operative grain
levator In that town. It was In the latter
enterprise that he got his start In the grain
business. From Trumbull he came to Hast
ings and opened a commission offkie, where
he dealt extensively In options. He operated
this business for about six years and then
went to Omaha, four years ago.
During his early resldenoe on the farm
near Trumbull Sleuman was superintendent
of the Methodist Sunday school, but lost
lnteist In church work when defeated for
re-election. Afterwards, when ha re-entered
the church, be returned to the patrons of
his general merchandise store amounts of
money which he estimated were equal to
past overcharges for goods sold to them.
He was one of the organisers of a co
operative elevator company and was In
strumental in having adopted a rule limit
ing stock holdings of each member to ten
shares. An Incompetent manager ran the
business at a loss and Sleuman bought the
control at a discount In a few years he
made enough money with the elevator to
establish his commission business here and
buy a row of brick houses, which he named
"The Sleuman Flata."
Before automobiles came Into general use
Bleuman had two or mora fast horses,
which he Invariably drove at high speed.
He would meet almost ny proffered wager.
Once a man offered to bet him he could
not hit a post with a ball. He made the
bet and hit the post with his eyes shut. He
offered to let the other man select his end
of the bet, always confident that people
are apt to guess wron.
During his residence here Mr. Sleuman
was devoted and lavish with hi family.
He bought the best the stores could offer
and often had them order the things of
higher grade than were carried in stock
He Invariably declined to Invest in entr
prises other than his own. Insisting thst
he could make more with his money than
snybody else could.
Mrs. Sewell Sleuman has lived In Hast
ings for the last two months. Although
separated .from her husband, Mrs. Sleuman
had taken no steps to obtain a divorce.
Four children live near Trumbull. They
are Mrs. Elmer Bmlth, Mrs. J. C. Slife
Joe Sleuman and Mrs. Harmon Rome.

Some Thlogs Omitted.
The Tom Allen deceptive circular will not
say that the value of railroad property to
be taxed for the benefit of cities and vil
lages has een increased $19,000,000 in the
last year. It will not say that Tom Allen
wrote to democratic candidate's ofr the leg
islature asking them to fisht the bill which
made this Im rea.e possible.
When George Beige was a candidate for
the democratic nomination for governor
he made speeches along the lines of the
circular. He was asked these, questions:
If you are elected governor of Nebraska,
will you promise to decrease the value of
farm lands In Nebraska?
If yoj are eietced governor of Nebraska,
will you promise In advance to Increase the
value of railroad property In Nebraska?
Will you make these' promises in advance
o fa hearing on the matter?
Mr. Berge had no answer ready. But so
far as heard from he quit talking about
over valuation of farm lands.
When the state board equalized the values
of farm lands in the various counties, the
assessors were sent for and sppeared be
fore the board, as did other clt lions and
each was given a hearing and each offered
testimony. In the light of that testimony
tho state board made its decision. Tom
Allen's circular will not pay that.
Taft la Oalnlasr.
Reports from over the state indicate a
steady gain for Judge Taft, and the offi
cials at the republican state headquarters
and speakers who have reported there, are
feeling Jubilant over the outlook. Here are
a sample of some of the statements made
by people who have been out over the stste
during the last few weeks. Senator Bur
Republicans are getting the best of it in
Nebraska. It Is coming our way now from
the farmers. I have already been in over
half the counties of the state. I have tried
to measure the situation in each locality
by Inquiry from men who knew and who
would not deceive me.' After this careful
Investigation It is my judgment that the
gain for Taft from democratic farmers
who have supported Bryan In former cam
paigns, will more than compemtxte for the
loss to the party In the towns and cities.
The farmers turn out to our meetings
everywhere. They respond to the appeals
of the republican speakers as If they un
derstood the situation, and 1 believe they
do. One democratic farmer told me he
had come eleven miles to the Hireling. I
have met democratic! farmers at nearly
every place where 1 have spoken, who told
me that while they were still friendly to
ward Mr. Bryan personally, and proud of
his splendid career as a Netiraskn man,
they felt that they could not take the
chalices on what would come to this state
through his election In the wny of lower
prices for farm produce snd lower values
O't farm lands.
The republicans are putting up ft good
campaign now. The work Is beginning to
tell In aroused activity mid a general feel,

I feel myself that the people of Nebraska
havo a good deal at stake In this rlectlon.
The doubt (ul period that would follow
Bryan's election, the period of waiting for
the business mind of the country to gel
a line on Bryan's administration. If be
should be elected, this waiting M'ilod might
bo a year or two years, or It might run
through his whole four years, snd during
this tlnin prices would go down, farm
values would go down, and such a condMlnn
would cost I lie Nebraska people hundreds
of millions of dollars.

party lines will be comparatively few and
small. Wherever the sentiment Is called
Into expression these facts are clearly dls
closed I am confident that the republican
national and state ticket will receive a sub
stantial plurality throughout the state.
What Brian ' Blraat.
It Is Just beginning to dawn upon some
of the ( progressive democrats what Mr.
Bryan meant when he announced that he
would Invite Mr. Kern to beoome a member
of his cabinet providing the two are elected
Mr. Warn Is the attorney for a railroad
over whose lines he carried a pass until
he lost It the other day.
Mr. Bryan's Invitation to Mr. Kern Is
taken to mean by the democrat who was
talking that this railroad will have a repre
sentative In the president's cabinet, and
this idea is further strengthened by the
fact that the president of the road has Just
contributed $1,000 to Mr. Bryan's campaign
The democrat who was talking Is a real
estate dealer nnd has been a follower of
Mr. Bryan for many years. He said:
"I have no doubt the railroads arc for
Mr. Bryan. They should be, for when he
announced he would Invite Mr. Kern to be
a raeniDM of bis cabinet he very cleverly
Informed the railroads that they would
have an advocate close at hand. I cannot
look at It In any other way.
"And the fact that Tammany has contrib
uted 110.000 to tha Bryan campaign fund
has simply caused some of the progressive
democrats to turn back somersaults. Tam
many 'Is such a corrupt organization that
Qrover Cleveland refused to accept its sup
port and OeneraJ Bragg made himself fa
mous by saying of Cleveland 'We love him
for the enemies he has made.'
"Mow Mr. Bryan can accept any money
from Tammany I cannot understand If he

purity In politics. Of course the money
may have had an Immunity bath In Stand
