nine reaaon tha Nebraska chicken crop
thla year U worth M.SB1 1ms than a year
aro. whan the ajmeaaor made his rounds.
Ona explanation of tha dwrnn Is the high
prtea f poultry, which may hava csued
heavy sates, as tha figures given repre
sent tha poultry on hand. Lancaster tops
the counties with l.m worth on hand,
aralnat $11,239 last year. Then comes tha
hi atate of flage." with $12,372 worth,
against 112,447 laat year. Douglas county
Is third with Ill.MJ, against 111.210 last
year.
With Reotta Bluff eounty missing the
total alue aasessod of all poultry on hand
this year amounted to KS6i,n. a-alnat a
total of 13S7.W last year. Th total last
year wan Scotts Bluff county waa W,
fA. The actual value of the poultry crop this
year 1 five times the assessed value, or
tl.S23.00R.
The. poultry Is north more than was the
sheep in lSf more than the annuities, than
the bonds, fire arms, patent right, water
craft; almost as muoh as the steam en
gines, more than the safes and typewrit
ers, safes or adding machlnee; more than
the typesetting machines, and two-thirds
as much as the hook accounts, and more
than all the monfy loaned In the state;
more than the money Invested In Judg
ments, in tax sales, money paid Into build
ing and loan associations; stock In corpor
ations, cash registers, pictures and en
gravlngr. telephones, billiard tables, or
gans, almost as much as all the planoa In
the stale, more than Is Invested In auto
mobiles. And the business Is by no means
overworked.
The following (able shows a comparison
of the value of poultry by counties for
the two years.

WASHINGTON. Aug. i-A rhntce selec- 1
tlon of committee assignments Is to be
handed out by Speaker Cannon this week.
Faithful service and fidelity to the speaker!

be rewarded before the special session ad-
Journs. It Is not likely that there will be ,
anv time for speeches as to the mo-its of'
the speakers assignments, but this docs

are not personally more lntrtH in

been In the tariff. j
n iiuiiiurr in regulars will or necessity
be considerably grieved over the appoint
ments, as there Is a relatively small limit
to the number of chairmanships to be
dealt out by the speaker.
Representative Charles N. Fowler of New
Jersey, chairman of the committee on
banking and currency, during the last con
press Incurred the displeasure of Mr. Can
non by "Insurglng" early In the season,
and a little later added to his displeasure
by actually coming out as a candidate for
speaker against Vncle Joe It Is therefore,
in the nature of things congressional, that
a new chairman will be named. It Is no
secret about the house and Representative
Vreeland of New York Is the speakers
choice.
Mr. Vreelaod was not even a member of
the hanking and currency committee during
the last session, and his appointment will
therefore open the way for the speaker to
niake other appointments where the mem
ber named for chairman has not served on
the committee of which he will become the
head. As a result manv i.nlv.n.. .. t.

Mann for Hepharn'e Place.
This situation applies especially to the In
terstate and foreign commerce committee
of which 'Colonel Pete" Hepburn was
chairman for a number of years. Vice
President Sherman was next In rank to
Hepburn, but his promotion to president of
tne senate leaves Representative Wanger
of Pennsylvania as the ranking member.
Representative Mann of Illinois, one of the
stalwarts" of the house, however, ranks
next to Mr. Wanger and has been a most
active member of the commerce committee
and he Is said to be the choice of the
speaker for chairman. That the speaker
has decided to give Mann the place, seems
to be indicated by the number of special
favors showered on Wanger durfhg the
special session. The speaker has on sev
eral occasions turned the gavel over to the
Pennsylvanlan and he has been recognized
In other ways calculated to show the
speaker's good will.
Should the speaker see fit he may apply
the same program to the committee on
postoffices and poatrosds and the Judiciary
committee, both of which will be very ac
tive during the next session.
Conservative members of the majority,
however, contend that the speaker cannot
afford at this time to create farther enmity
by Ignoring ranking members of commit
tees In selecting the efialrmen. It Is said
therefore, that Representatives Gardner
and Parker will, get the postoffice and
Judiciary committees respectively.
An entirely different status governs the
apoplntment of a chairman for the Insular
affairs committee. Representative Cooper
of Wisconsin, who was chairman of this
committee In the last congress. Is still s
member of the house, but he was one of
those who voted sgalnst the "Cannon
rules" and Is therefore scheduled to lose
his place. It Is generally conceded that
Representative Olmsted of Pennsylvania
will supersede him.
When Theodore E. Burton was elected
t'nlted Statea senator from Ohio the chair
manship of the committee on rivers and
harbors waa left vacant. Representative
Acheson of Pennsylvania, who was the next
In rank on the committee, has retired from
congress, leaving Representative Alexander
of New Tork as the man who would ordi
narily get the berth of chairman. It is
said Mr. Alexander could have the chair
manship of the Judiciary committee If he
desired it. but he Is understood to covet
and probably will secure the vacancy left
by Senator Burton.
