"The nation is concerned In this work,

Opportunities for Homes.
"More than all this showing of material
progress are the excellent results accom
plished In carrying out the purpose of the
act, namely, the making of opportunities
for homes. The wise provision of the law
restricting acreage has been enforced, and
there Is a well marked beneficial result in
the subdivision of large areas of Irrigable
land and the placing of this In the hands
of men competent to successful! Cultivate
the soil and make permanent homes. The
speculative element has been largely absent.-
, "The works new In hand will require all
of the reclamation fund for several years.
Each large work Is completed to a point
where it has made possible hundreds of
homes, and where returns are oomtng to
the fund, but It has numerous ramifica
tions, or divisions, each of which requires
considerable more money for completion.
There is no lack of work when these are
finished. The opportunities for further
conservation of the waste, waters are al
most unlimited, especially in localities
where attempts have been made on a small
scale and complications of such nature
have eristn, especially those of vested
rights, that successful action can be taken
only by following up the matter with in
finite tact and patience, coupled with the
resources of the reclamation fund.
"Of course, there Is always another side
to every large problem. It is not conceiva
ble that the reclamation act could be
wholly perfect or. -that Its administration
could be without flaw. The very bene
fits brought about by the act have been
a source of criticism. The requirement of
residence on the ,land or in the neighbor
hood, la freely criticised as Involving un
necessary harden 'u, and yet . this Is one
of the requirements which the majority
of congress considered g being an essen
tial condition for the advancement of fed
Denies Work la Slow.
"The slowness of the work is also crit
icised, and It has come to be a matter of
general remark that the .. government Is
always slow.. This, like, many truisms, is
a statement which doe -net stand close
analysis. There are very few corporations
which have accomplished with the funds
available as much, as has been carried on
by .the reclamation 'serrvioe.
The successful handling of the reclama
tion fund probably requires as much, if
not more, skill and patience than in any
Industrial enterprise, ... On the one hand
are the settlers clamoring for immediate
results; on the other hand are engineer
ing problems and complications of vested
rights to water and difficult ilghis-of
way, with defective land titles, all of
which must be patiuntly 'worked out undur
very exacting regulations. The federal
employe Is regarded by all as a proper
target, when Joined with this Is the fact
that the man in control of the ditch Is
as a matter of course regarded py. every
one as responsible for every evil In the
community, and you have a combination
which requires almost unlimited skill, tact
"The reclamation act is not a perfect
document, but, like ' most ' acta of con
gress, Is the result of compromise of many
conflicting Ideas, Wherever it may be
defective, these defects can only be rem
edied In one way, nauiely, by congress and
not by any official. It Is worse than use
leas, therefore, to attempt to remedy these
defects, if they exUt, through criticism of
the methods adopted by the offk-lals in
direct charge. Any needed improvements
should be brought U the attention fit the
law-making body and particularly to the
committees on irrigation of the senate and

(From a Staff Correspondent
LINCOLN, Aug. 9 (Special.) A delega
tion of Omaha cltliens. business and pro
fessional men appeared before the 8tate
Board of. Equalisation today, along with
delegations from other counties, to protest
against an Increase In the assessment of
property as returned by the county board.
The board proposed to Increase merchan
dise and banking stock In Douglas county
and the discussion was on these two classes
of property. In the matter of merchandise
It was shown by the speaker, that while
Omaha merchandise had been de-reased
compared with the returns of last year,
there was a reason for this. It was ex
plained that the retail merchants of Omaha
were not compelled to carry extensive
stocks because at short notice they could
replenish their stocks from the wholesale
Mr. Phriver, county assessor, explained
the decrease' by saying that had the Brnn
dels and Hayden stores been assessed at
the same figures as last year there would
have been no decrease. An expert had
gone through these establishments and had
reported the warehouse of the Hayden's
practically empty, as was the Brandeis
warehouse. A year ago these firms had
an Immense amount of goods on hand
which they have not this year. The retire
ment of one member of the Hayden store
had resulted in a considerable reduction
In the valuation of this firm's property.
Representatives of the Jobbers, in ex
planation of the Increase of the stocks
In the state, compared with a decrease in
Douglas county, said this was due to the
Increased number of stores established and
the fact that many of the stores In coun
try towns "were compelled to carry large
stocks, because they could not replenish
as easily as the Omaha stores.
Taxes In Other Cities. ,
The state board was asked to use good
Judgment and discretion In making up the
grand assessment roll and while Omaha
merchants had no objection to paying their
fair share of the taxes of the state they
did not want to have their valuations so
high that It would be Impossible for them
to compete wlth Kansas City, St. Joseph
and Sioux City. The tax paid by some
of the largo wholesale houses of those
cities were read and compared with the
big firms of Omaha to show that Omaha
firms paid mre taxes than did the people
with whom they were brough In competi
tion. The reduction In the value of the bank
stockes the delegation thought was Justi
fied because everything the bank had was
in ' plain eight and the assessors could
easily get at it. Reductions should be al
lowed, the speakers insisted, for unearned
Interest and for bad loans.
The delegation got to Lincoln shortly be
fore noon and the hearing was put off until
1:30, when the Jobbers mad. their protests.
Then the board adjourned while the gov
ernor listened to an application for a re
quisition, following which the bankers had
their Inning, several other counties being
heard before and after the Omaha delega

Protests, from Other Counties.
Knox county sent down Henry Schwarts,
chairman, and J. O. Weber, member of
the county board, to pro ten against the
proposed Increase In the value of horses
and mules. These men filed a statement
from the county assessor that Knox county
hns a lot bf Indian ponies within its bor
ders which are worth, on the market,
about f'iO each, and these low-priced ani
mals had kept down the average.
From Butler county came A. V. Thomas,
county attorney; IkJ. J. Holland, county
clerk; J. L. Svboda, Nick Meysenburg and
Fred Judevine, members of the county
board, and Ed Rech, county attorney.
They protested against an Increase in
horses and mules.
Dodge county objected to the proposed In
crease on hornet, and mules, because. Us
spokesmen said, from the hill country the
hoisca were not very valuable, and this
prevented a very high average. J, A. Dona
hue, J. H. Matthews and Jorgen Lorsen
Richardson and Nemaha counties, pre
sented a knotty question for the board to
pass -upon. Charles Mason, living In Rich
ardson county, was declared an Incompetent
and the court appointed Arthur Allen of
Nemaha county his guardian. The guardian
inquired where to list the personal property.
This guardian lived In Nemaha county and
Ward In Richardson. Both counties clatnieU
the property for taxation purposes, Nemaha
on the ground that the law provides that
where the guardian lives there should b
listed the personal property. J. H. Lam
bert, E. B. (juackenbush, C. E. Blessing,
A. E. Qantt, Arthur Allen and N. B. Judd,
were here to represent the contending
counties. The' property involved amounts
to almost f 10, 000.
