about the same aa for the corresponding
period laat year. . ,
Beef steers were In good demand and
sold quite readily at prloes that wore a
little stronger than yesterday or fully
26o higher than last week. Buyers, In
fact, are figuring that the decline of laat
week Is now pretty generally recovered.
Cowa and heifers wera In good demand
and higher again -than yeaterday. They
are in many caaes axuic mner m..
last week'a close. Buyers, In fact, are
quoting the advanco aa fully, equal to
last, week' decline.
Stockers and feeders being In moderate
supply moved freely and they, too, were
a little stronger than yesterday. The
more desirable kinds are now Just about
as high as they were at the beginning; of
last week, but soma of the plain heavy
rattle possibly have not recovered all
the losa, and the same might be true of
some of the trashy grades which are
not especially sought after.

Tax Joker In Constitutional
V0TEK8: When you go to the polls on November 3, look
carefully for this question on your ballot:
"For amendment to the constitution, providing (or
uniform and progressive taxation."
'Against said amendment to the constitution pro
viding for uniform and progressive taxation."
It is a "Joker" and a dangeroua one.
Vote againat It unless you desire to open tbe door to
rank and ruinous discrimination in the matter of taxation,
getting back tbe progress of your state and discouraging
tbe entrance of outside capital and population.
Here la the situation in a nutshell: If this proposi
tion is adopted by the voters of Nebraska at this state
election. It gives tbe legislature full power to say Just
what class and kind of property shall be taxed for all
state purposes and what class and kind shall be exempt.
If tbe legislature chose. It might make tbe farms and
agricultural interests of the state bear all the taxation,
while all the property of the city went scot free. It
might, Indeed, put the whole burden of taxation on tha
farmer'a land alone, while everything else, Including the
big franchises, the valuable special privileges held In the
rlty, would be absolutely exempt from a penny of taxes.
The legislature, by thla amendment, Is left with the
most sweeping powers, to practice the most drastic and
unjust discrimination It might choose-
The power to tax is the power to destroy.
Vested with such plenary power, any legislature
might tax out of existence any class or kind of property
on hlch It imposed the whole burden of taxation.
The present law (Article IX, Section 1, Nebraska
Constitution) which 'this dangeroua proposition would
supplant provldea for taxation by valuation ao as to dis
tribute tho burden of revenue-raising to every person and
corporation in the state. This Is just and equitable tax
ation. This proposed amendment reads: "The rules of tax
ation shall be uniform as to any given class, and TAXK8
SHALL BR LEVIED UPON SUCH PROPERTY AS THE
LEGISLATURE SHALL PRESCRIBE."
It Is the subtle device of tbe "single taxera" aa the
. Initial step toward substituting their system of LAND
TAXATION ONLY for the present system, which distrib
utes the taxation - fairly among all interests and prop
erties. It Is Ihe most daring, drastic and dangerous attempt
yet made to supplant the fundamental law of the state
approved by experience and upheld by the courts by
a vagary which Is without standing.
VOTE IT DOWN.

Labor Unions Appeal to the Farmers For Help
ALL VOTKIIH RBQUEHTEIt 1X1 VOTE AGAINST THE
LAW AT THK KKFERKN DfJM ELKCTIO.V,
KOVKMHKK TH1KI), 1014.
The laat Legislature ptuiaed an Iniquitous and un
fair oonflHcation law under tha falae name of Compen
sation Law; but about 115,000 of the fairmlnded citlsens
of Nebraska throughout the State slirned si petition to
have tha Law suspended and referred to a vote of the
people at the coming November election. All of the
iMM.ltlonera and every other falrminded voter In the
HLate should vote against this Law.
The Central Labor ' Unions of Omaha and Houth
Omaha have unqualifiedly condemned this confiscation
Law and ask you to vote against It at tha November
election for the following reasons:
I. Tbe law vt aa aaaed through tbe untiring ef- ,
fort of Uie Employers' Liability Insurance Companies'
lobby, and was not passed In the Interests of tha labor
. Ing men. It benefits only the Insurance Oompaniea,
'which are planning to take millions of dollars additional ,
out of this Htate without giving any additional benefit
to the employer; and at the same time depriving the In- '
Jured man of about nine-tenths of what he geta and la
entitled to under present Laws.
a. While the Law pretends to be elective, it Is in
feet compulsory; because If the employer electa to accept
the Law, you may be sure that he will not keep men tn
bis employ who elect not to accept the Law,
8. Tha Law does away with right of trial by Jury. ,
4. The Law does not provide any compensation
whatsoever for men who are disabled fourteen days or
lews, which means that It provides no compensation
whatsoever for BO per cent of all men injured.
0. The Law doe not require any security whatso
ever for the payment of the small allowance provided.
0. The Law does not allow anything whatsoever for,
pain or Buffering, no matter how great or how' long con
tinued; nor does it allow anything for mutilation or dis
figurement of the body. 1
7. The Law provldea no greater compensation when
a man Is killed, leaving a wife and ten children, than
when he leaves a wife and one child.
8. The Law does not do away with law guita or
lawyers, but cuta the amount of possible recovery now -to
almost nothing. ' . '
0. The employer need not pay the weekly install- -meats
of compensation unless lie sees fit to do ao," but
