(From a Staff CorrespondVnt.)
LINCOLN, Dec 19. (Special.) Judge
rturk and County Clork Prall of Chase
county today conferred with the Board
of Industrial Lands and Fundi concern
ing the appraisal of school and university
lands In that county, asking that it be
reduced. They asserted that In many
Instances as high as 1150 per section lease
money was paid while, according to their
Ktatement fully as good lands could be
leased from private persons for much
less, In some instances for one-half.
The board took no action on the matter,
but will Investigate and in case the cir
cumstances are thought to warrant, may
order a new appraisement. They may
also, If they desire, decmlde to declare
renent leases forfeited where rentals are
delinquent. Owing to crop conditions In
that section much of the lease money
i delinquent, but the board has hesi
tated to forfeit the leases for the reason
that many were really unable to pay,
nrid the board had hoped they would
when conditions were bettered. The
board has asked the Chase county men,
as a preliminary to the Investigation by
the board that they send in' an estimate
of their valuation of the lands for leas
Normal Hoard to Meet.
The state normal board will meet in
regular session tomorrow. In addition to
routine business, the board will deolde
what should bo done to replace, either
temporarily or permanently, the pump
house, engine and pump of the Peru
normal water supply system, which was
destroyed by flro recently.
Labor liareau Hair,
The Btate labor bureau Is busy just
now finishing up the compilation of crop
statistics. Mr. Quye hopes to have the
figures ready to give out In about two
weeks. The report this year will be
much mora complete, Mr. Uuye says,
than ever before. In addition to crops
It will contain figures on the amount of
idle land ,as well as that under crop,
In each county in the state. The figures,
he says, will surprise most people In the
Hhowlng of the percentage of Nebraska
land which is now idle. In practically
every county in the state more than GO
per cent of the land Is non-productive
for some reason or other, largely because
the owners do not care to cultivate It.
Kor the purpose of these statistics, he
considers hay land and pasture land as
cultivated land, the same as that In crops
requiring actual cultivation.
State 'Warrants Received.
The state treasurer's office is busy
receiving and taking up registered state
warrants on the call for $90,000 worth re
cently Issued. Monday $33,000 worth were
received and up to noon more than 140,
000 worth had been received today. It is
estimated that, a couple of days mora
will suffice to clear up this call and
then one will be Issued for $25,000 -worth
more. With the settlements with county
treasurers after, the first of the year Mr.
. George anticipates that still larger blocks
of the war ant may be called In.
