Ts Enferce Daylight Law.
"Enforcement of the daylight saloon law,
when It becomes effective in. July, is
one of the chief things the Nebraska. Anti
Saloon league haa in view .at the present
time," said 8. K. Warrick of Alliance, state,
president, this, afternoon. Mr. Warrick
came to Lincoln to attend an advisory
meeting of the trustees Who constitute the
executive board , of the tongue. V. 8.
.Rohrer of Haatings and Prof. A..B. Fair
child of Crete, two of tha- other trustees,
fiie ajao here. The meeting was held at
the office of J. M. Guile, who Is a member
of the board.
"In common with other organizations
that are working to restrict the liquor
traffic," continued Mr. Warrick, "the Antl
Baloon league will focus interest and force
the Issues along certain lines. We expect
to see that the daylight saloon act Is en
forced to the letter In every part of the
state. Omaha and South .Omaha will be
looked after by the workers there, who
will have the assistance of the state or
ganisation. County attorneys will be asked
to perform their duty in prosecuting of
fenders against the 8. o'clock closing law,
and if they refuse the league will employ
Its twn attorneys;; . '.
Whenever saloon men have not' lived up
to the new law during the last year, the
league will encourag4 the filing of re
monstrances to prevent the renewal of their
licenses. This, it Is claimed, will put a
large majority of the llquorNdealera In the
state uson the defensive.
Next fall, the league will probably take
a hand In the prlmariea and the general
flection with particular reference to
sheriffs and county judges. With officials
In thoee positions who are friendly to their

' WalterI.eeae to Retire.
Walter A. tese will retire as clerk of
the county court on May 1. Rumors to
this effect have been in circulation for
several days and were this morning ton
firmed by County Judge Cosgrave. The
latter stated that he had received a large
number of applications for the place and,
though- ha -had practically decided who
to give It to. he would not be readv to
make an announcement for several days.
A report filed by the county Judge with
the county commissioners shows that the
Judge has discovered that he has been
paying Cltrk I.ese more than the
Mf. Loeso was appointed to fill the
vacancy caused by the death of Judge
Waters, which came very unexpectedly.
He stated todajr that when he went Into
the office he waa advised by Mr. I,eese
what the salaries had been In the past
and lie recommended to the county board
that theae be continued. According to the
statement made to him at the time, the
clerk had been receiving $123 per month.
Mr. 1eese was continued st this figure
during the remaining three months of
107. all of 1S0S and for the first two
months of this year. In Msrch a hill
was pending before the legislature to
change the salary of the clerk and Judge
Cosgrave took occasion to lonk tip the
existing statute. He was surprised to
find that the last previous legislature
had changed the law, taking from the
county board the power to fix the salary
and putting the place on a flat salary
bawls of ll.JOO pef year. It was then
that he made the supplemental report
above referred to.
Judge Cosgrave was asked If he pro
posed to repay to the county the il-'o
which had bren overpaid out of his own
pocket, and he replied that he did "in
the first Instance." He stated in .eply
to a further Inquiry, however, that Mr.

Checking I'p the Books,
The county commissioner this morning
agreed to Jet to H. 8. Wiggins of Lincoln
and the Audit and Bond Company of
America of St.. Louis the contract for

court, sheriff and the Justices of the
peace at Lincoln. The auditing will be

brought up to date.
Arnrit of Elevators.
Secretary Chris Schavland of the State
Board of Assessment has issued the follow
ing circular -to county assessors in regard
to the assessment of grain brokers or grain
From numerous letters recently received
at this office it is evident thai there is still
illfforence of opinion among some grain
brokers and assessors a to the correct
manner of asnesRing the property of grain
nroKers and grain companies, and 1 there
fore again beg leave to call your attention
1o the supreme court's definition of th
words "average capital." or "average
amount of capital, as used In my circular
letter of the t'd instant.
Average capital of a grain broki-r. ac
cording to such definition, is not only the
average amount of money used In buying
grain, but It is "the average of the amount
of cash and all other property or every
kind used In currying on the business.
Average capital must therefore necessarily
Include the real estate, if any, and all
buildings and equipments owned and used
In carrying on the business, also-the av
erage amount of money used in buying
grain, such sverage to be determined from
the last year's business, but in determining
which no fixed or hard and fast rule can
be applied. But grain on hand on the 1st
day of April should not be considered In
determining the average amount of capital.
To Illustrate the manner In which I would
proceed to assess the property of a grain
broker, consisting of elevator with equip
inent. office building with furniture, scales,
cribs Rnd sheds, all of which I will pre
sume In this case to be on leased ground
and arraln on hand amounting to I4H. cash
on hand or In bank amounting to $.100. and
a piece of real estate. I will give the fol
lowing as a brief exampk-:
If I should find that the elevator with
Its equipment la worth U.WI; that the office
build nit with Its furniture is worm sti.o
that the acales are worth I"; that the
cribs and sheds are worth HOft; that the
real estate Is worth $400. and that the
average amount of money used In buying
grain Is $1,000. the "average capital" used
in carrying on the business would then be
I would then list for assessment the build
Ings. equipments, furniture, scales and real
estate at their appraleed value. Which In
this case would be $8,450. I would also Hot
for assessment the grain on hand, valued at
$400, and the cash on hand or in bank,
amounting to tW. and In addition I would
list the excess of the "average capital"
over the amount of real estate and other
tangible property, which would be $sn.
This would make a total valuation of $M50.
Bv deducting the value of the real estate,
$400. which Is separately assessed, I would
have a personal property assessment of
the actual value of $6,060. .
Jf I had found grain on hand amounting
to $SO0 Instead -of t4fO but all other prop
erty, including eastu to be the sa.nie as
shown above) then the amount of tangible
propertv wo ild have exceeded the "average
capital." and In that case I would not have
added anything to the value of the tangible
ftnpaorts fr. Simmons.
At a special meeting of the lncaster
County Medical society held this after
noon, the following resolution was ad
opted: Whereas, It has rome to the knowledge
of the Isuicaster County Medical society,
formerly the Unroln Medical society, that
Dr. George H. Simmons cf Chicago, for
many vears a member In good stan-ilng of
this society, is being made the cbject -of
an attack affecting his reputation and
professional standing, while a resident of
ltncoln, therefore be It.
Resolved. That the members of this so
ctetv. many of whom were medical prac
titioners in Lincoln during the time, of
Dr. Bimmons1 residence, hereby give ox
prosston to the esteem In which Dr. Sim
mons was held, while in Lincoln, and
hereby acknowledge the valuable service
h rendered to the profession here In Lin

Further. The society Is pleased to place
ittelf on record as appreciating the bon.w
conferred on it bv Dr. Simmons' dis
tinguished services since his election in
secretary and editor or ine American itit-m-cal
Further. We trust that no action wll.
be taken which will discourage the efforts
of a man who haa labored so long and so

HASTINGS The condition of wheat
throughout this county is said by reliable
farmers to be slightly below the average
of thlK time a year ago. The deteriora
tion, small as It is. was caused mostly
by hard winds In the winter, which blew
the dirt away from the roots. Any dam
age that may have been caused In this
way. however, will not make much dif
ference In the total yield. Farmers re
entirely satisfied with all condition)! here;
in fact the general outlook is slightly
better than usual at this time of the
year. Continued cold weather has kept
fruit back and probably the trees will
not bloom until all danger of frost has
passed. In the last few years heavy dam
age has been caused to fruit by late
