"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 I'auso. the antl-salnonlsts believe they will be able to make good progress in compell ing liquor dealers to obey the laws and In narrowing the sphere of the traffic. In terest will also be shown In the selection f svpreme court .rudges. ' 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 statutory salary. 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. I..?eee was bonded to him in the sum of $1,000. 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 auditing and checking up the books of the county clerk, clerk of the district court, sheriff and the Justices of the peace at Lincoln. The auditing will be gin at a period eight years back and 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 dealers: 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 $.4ro. 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 property. ftnpaorts fr.
