FOR STATE TROOPS
All Companies Whose Members
Are Sworn In Given Hike
MUSTERING IS SLOW WORK
(From a Staff Correupondent.)
Lincoln, Neb., June 30. (Special
Telegram.) The Nebraska troops
had their first practice march tonight
when all companies of the Fourth
regiment and the five of the Fifth
which have already been sworn into
the federal service marched to the
city and paraded up O street to the
Lincoln hotel and back to the grounds
by way of P street.
The parade was headed by Lieuten
ant Colonel Baehr followed by the
Fourth regiment band of Friend.
Then came the Fourth regiment fol
lowed by the five companies of the
Fifth, headed by the band of that
regiment from Lincoln.
The column composed all com
panies of the Guard which have been
sworn into the federal service up to
, Waiting for Orders.
r '"Watchrul waiting might iJroperly
be applied to officers and men of the
mobilization camp here regarding
movement to theb order.
Each day they look forward to the
hope that before night thef inal order
may come to entrain as quickly as
possible and get away from the fair
grounds. Just now everybody is suf
fering to a more or less "extent from
wounds received in engagements with
the surgeons, who have been inocu
lating the men as a preventative of
typhoid and small pox. Vaccination
is made on one arm for small pox
and on the other for typhoid, and so
the popular expression around camp
nowadays is, "Ouch, be careful, that's
my sore arm."
With the swearing in yesterday of
Colonel Eberly of the Fourth regi
ment he assumed command of that
body, which heretofore had been in
charge of Lieutenant Colonel Baehr.
The latter will still continue as the
commander of the federal enlisted
men until Colonel Paul has been mus
tered into the service.
Kramer in Command.
General Phil Hall, elected com
mander of the Fairfield company of
the Fifth regiment, is endeavoring to
clean up his work as federal disburs
ing officer so as to take charge of
his company as soon as possible. He
hopes to get the work completed as
early in July as possible, but it de
pends upon how soon the Nebraska
troops are sent away. As soon as the
work is completed he will join his
company. In the meantime Lieutenant
H. F. Kramer of the company will
have command of the company.
Captain Jess of the signal corps has
succeeded in recruiting his company
up again to seventy-five men. The
company was badly shot to pieces by
the examinations, but Captain Jess
has been active in securing men and
he is now ready for work.
Captain Ralph McMillen, in charge
of recruiting for the aviation service,
has secured about thirty-five men so
far and more are being received daily.
He desires to reach the required
number of forty-five before tomor
row night, so as to report as soon
as possible, when the men will be
sent to the aviation instruction
school at Newport News, Va.
Some Ranks Thinned.
Some people have been pretty
active in condemning methods used
by officers in gettingx their men to
take the federal oath. On one hand
they have been criticized because
they did not get the regiments
equipped up to the required strength,
and again criticized because they re
quired the men to stand for re-enlistment.
Company commanders, com
ing to camp with a full company
have seen' the ranks of their compa
nies riddled by those who have come
onto the company streets and pre
vailed upon the men to ask for dis
charges or refuse to take the federal
oath. In some instances attorneys
have been hired to convince the pow
ers that be that they had no right
to hold the men in the service.
Under such conditions it is not at
all strange if the officers' have en
deavored to show the enlisted men
in plain language just exactly what
their duty is as members of the Na

Heavy Share of Expected Fund

ment on Profits.
(Prom a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, 'June 30. (Special
Telegram.) The last great effort of
the democratic party to meet present
conditions and to provide revenue to
take care of almost unheard-of ap
propriations will be made late tomor
row afternoon, when the ways and
means committee will report what it
pleases to call "an omnibus revenue
This bill, which the authors of the
measure believe will raise $210,000,000
of revenue, lays a tax on war muni
tions, a tax on inheritance, changes
present income tax features in cer
tain particulars, provides for the es
tablishment of dye manufacturies, es
tablished a tariff commission and pro
hibits unfair competition. The bill
also changes present tariffs on native
It is expected that a round $100,
000,000 will be realized from the new
income feature of the bill by increas
ing the normal taxation from 1 to 2
per cent and by increasing the sur
tax on incomes reaching $20,000 and
graduating them until the $500,000
limit is reached, and after that "the
Munitions to Pay.
On the munitions clause of the bill
it is expected $60,000,000 will be
realized, according to Representative
Henry T. Rainey of Illinois, ranking
member of the ways and means com
mittee, by graduating the tax, but
exempting the net profits of 10 per
cent. All explosives, projectiles and
guns are to be taxed.
On inheritances the majority mem
bers of the ways and means com
mittee, through the bill to be intro
duced tomorrow, expect to realize
$50,000.00. The bill will provide for
an estate tax on all estates under
$50,00 in value, with exemptions, and
then to graduate up rapidly until it
pays 8 per cent on the very largest
estates. ... ..
'" On dye stuffs the bill will accord
to the dye industry all they ask for
five years. Should they fail to keep
the requirements which the hill pro
vides within 60 per cent, then the
president is empowered to withdraw
the tax, bht if the dye people show
results even of a minor character,
then the president has the right to do
as seems best.
As to the anti-dumping clause, the
bill provides a penalty for any for
eigner selling goods cheaper than the
wholesale price of the native market,
after allowance for overhead charges
The tariff commission shall consist
of six members, three of whom shall
be representatives of the party in
power. Their tenure shall be for
twelve years and their salaries $1,000
The bill eliminates all adhesive
stamps, including bank, life insurance,
telegraph and other surtaxes.

railway station and therefore never
would have been selected for a de
liberately planned murder, was given
today by Gale M. Brooks, a civil
engineer, in the trial of Will H. Or

Lambert. Brooks explained at length
a map'he had made of the woods.
While the engineer was testifying
Orpet looked over letters, which
reach him every day from all parts
of the country, from Halifax, Spo

walking in the woods could be seen

The War department order fol
lows: "In view of -the fact that general

While thousands of National Guards
men were moving over converging

extraordinary precautions were being
take to prevent the exact routings
and schedules of the numerous spe
cial trains lrom becoming widely
known. General Funston was in

exercise the utmost precaution in
concealing details of the mobiliza

roads carrying troops, have been re
quested not to make public the move
ments of trains.
It was explained at headquarters
that these measures were taken to
render more ififficult any attempt
that might be made to wreck trains.

an attempt might be made.

was recaptured by a brilliant French
counter attack, according to an official
statement issued by the French war

"In Belgium, last night, at about 11
o'clock, following a preparatory artil
lery fire, German forces attacked a
salient of our line not far from the
road between Neiuport and Lom
baertzyde. A counter attack was im
mediately delivered which drove the
enemy out of one section of trench
where they had gained a footing. Be
tween Chaulnes and Roye. A strong
German reconnoitering party, caught
under our fire, was dispersed before
it could reach our trenches.
"Between the Oise and the Aisne

persed in a like manner, one in front
of Quennevierres, . the other north

Germans, last night, increased their
offensive activity against our posi

to a point east of hill No. 304. They
directed violent attacks udoii the Drin-

preceded by intense bombardments
and accompanied by the throwing of
flaming liquids. Between Avocourt
wood and hill 304, all their endeavors
were broken by our tire, which in
flicted heavy losses upon them.
"East of hill 304,, after several
fruitless assaults, the enemy -succeeded
in taking possession of a for
tified work in our first line, the gar
rison of which had been literally
buried by the German bombardment.

Emphatically reiterating the Mexi

When President Wilson met with
