HASTINGS, Neb., July 4. (Special.)
With a record-breaking wheat crop now
ready for harvest the farmer of Adams
county are confronted with one of the mom
serious labor famine ever experienced In
thl aection. Men have been taken to the
farm from many lines of employment In
thl city and rural jobs paying all the way
from 2.50 to S3.50 per day, with three
farm meals thrown in, still go begging
Numerous local employer find themselves
handicapped by the loss of hands that have
quit their city job and gone to the wheat
fields. Yesterday all but six of the eight

their picks and shovels and made for the
farms. Four tramp printers who struck
town about the middle of the week, Just
In time to find employment In rush work
on catalogues and other publications,
climbed Into a farmer's six-cylinder tour
ing car yesterday and today the editors And
publishers are celebrating the Fourth of
July by setting type and feeding press.
Two base ball players that failed to make
good on the local team found Jobs at their
own terms where they will not have to

wife may object, and a number of them
have placed orders with the local brewery
for a keg of beer each morning. A whole
sale Ice cream manufacturer this mornlryy
sent out a dozen ten-gallon tubs of Ice
cream to squads of wheat workers.
All reports indicate that the wheat crop
will exceed all former records in this
county, both in quality and quantity, and
local automobile agents are making ar
rangements accordingly. As many automo
biles are already owned by farmers In this
county as there are owned in Hastings,
and all the village, and dealer say their
best prospects for future sales are among
the farmers. Last week thirty farmer in
the vicinity of Glenvllle, a short distance
south of Hastings, organized a bank in an
ticipation of big returns from the wheat
harvest, and each subscribed 1500 to the
capital stock. That . one move heat the
automobile men out of a number of sales,
but the dealer believe that if one of the
new crop of capitalists can be Induced to
buy the others will quickly follow.

WASHINGTON. July 4.-Tt is confidently
expected by senators generally that .he
senate will reach a vote on the passage
of the tariff bill by the end of the present
There it still much to be done and there
are many Important feature to be con
sidered, but the measure ha been before
the senate so long that men of all factions
and of both parties are becoming tired of
it, as has been made evident since the ac
tion on Friday last on the Income tax ques
tion. That subject wa regarded a the
culminating Issue and with it disposed of
In accordance with the finance commit
tee' views, the opponent of that organ
isation seem to have lost all heart.
The discussion Saturday was perfunctory
and at no time was there barely more
than a quorum present. Thl Indicate to
the minds of many that there is little
fight In the opposition. Hence the belief
that the remaining provision will receive
slight attention and that the final vote la
near at hand.
Income Tax Vote Today.
At 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon the sen
ate will enroll Its vote on the proposition
for a constitutional amendment looking to
the levying of an Income tax. Senator
Brown of Nebraska I the author of the
resolution on which the vote will be taken,
but the proposition Is a part of the gen
eral administration scheme with reference
to income and corporation taxes. There la
no doubt that the resolution will be
adopted by the senate, and It is believed
it will run the gauntlet of the conference
and become a law, so that before long the
various state of the union will be called
upon to say whether they desire a federal
Income tax. Twelve state can defeat the
Other matter of Importance -remaining
to be considered In connection with the
I tariff bill are the drawback provision, the
CU8torn court section, the tobacco tax.
which tt Is generally understood wlU be
increased, and the authorlzatlop ot- the
valuation ot a certain class of imports in
accordance with American prices. Any of
these would have caused a week's debate
at the beginning of the discussion of the
measure, but It Is believed the most of
them will be disponed of after little, if any,
more than a da,y'a consideration.
Still Open to Amendment.
So far the bill has been considered by
the senate as in committee of the whole,
hut as soon as Its discussion in that con
nection Is completed It will cross the un
marked parliamentary line and enter the
senate proper, where it will be possible to
reopen any of the numberless subjects
covered by It. Comparatively few of the
Items, however, will be retouched, but
among those which will receive some at
tention are the corporation tax, petroleum,
sugar and, probably, wood pulp and print
Senator Aldrich ha given an explicit
promise that the committee on finance
would pay especial attention to the cor
poration tax question, with the view of
modifying It so as to exempt purely mu
tual benefit concerns, such, for Instance, as
building and loan associations. - It Is be
lieved an amendment In that direction will
be brought In by the committee, and If it
Is it will receive favorable consideration
from the senate. .
Hard to Hold Qnoram.
It I becoming difficult to hold a quorum
In the senate and an especially large num
ber of senator will be away until Tues
day. A number of them left the city to
spend th Fourth at their home or at the
seashore, and It may be difficult to get a
legal vote on the Income tax resolution
Th house ha no business before It and
will again adjourn from Monday until
Thursday, and from Thursday to the fol

car attached to a fast Pennsylvania train
between Washington and New York, John
R. Early, the North Carollnan, whose, de
tention as a leper in an Isolated camp at
Washington stirred up such a controversy
among medical men, arrived in New York
today and Is now a patient of the New

Arriving at the Institution here, he was
not confined to his own ward, but was al

wards. The superintendent of the hospital,

there was absolutely nothing the matter
with Early, but In the absence of Dr. Bulk

to say what disposition would be made
of the patient.
Mrs. Early reached here on a later train
today and will endeavor to obtain work.
It was largely through Dr. Bulkely's ef

treatment. Dr. Bulkely Interested himself
n the case, visited Early In Washington
several times, and obtained permission from
the new York health authorities for his
removal here. There has been a wide va

what they suppose to be the possibility
that negroes may be sent into the home
of white resident of the south a enumera
tors to get their Information for the thir
teenth decennial federal census, members
of congress will urge President Taft to
give instructions that only white enumera

of the "Mason and Dixon line."
Representatives of the southern state In
congress say that they have little hope of
preventing the employment of negroes un
less th president Interferes. Reports of
the experience of the Virginia delegation
in seeking a portion of the census patron
age from that state have disturbed the
southern representatives. Senator Martin

that the recommendation of the republican

State Board of Equalization, the Indica
tions are the Increase over the assessment
of last year will not be more than $5,000,000,

would be an Increase of $23,000 actual value.
In the county real estate was returned at
a valuation lees than last year, but as the
board, believes this was due to an error
the report has been sent back for verifi
cation. The Board of Equalisation will meet on
the third Monday In this month and will
continue In session until it work Is com
pleted. No valuation can be raised unless the
board hear the testimony of the county
assessor whose county Is affected and
other county officials who are Interested.
In the past this plan has always been fol

board's usual methods into law, so it. is
law now -for the - board to send for the
county officials when a raise in assessment
is contemplated. '
