AS POLICE AT FAIR
State Board Will Be Obliged to
Appoint Men o Take the
Place of Soldiers.
EDITORS CALLED TO MEET
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, Aug. 30. (Special.)
Policing the fair grounds will have
to be done by a different system this
year because members of the National
Guard are on the border.
During the last few years the state
fair management has turned over the
guard duty to Adjutant General Hall,
who has detailed 100 members of the
sruard for that duty. This year Gtn-
eral Halt has been placed in charge
again, but having no guasd to draw
on, members of the state board will
select men from their localities to do
the duty under direction of the ad

braska Editorial association, has
called a meeting of the new and old
boards of directors to meet at the
Lindell hotel next Tuesday to com

mittee in its recent meeting cover
ing important matters.
Republican Sentiment Grows.
L. V. Horton of Stanton, republican
candidate for the state senate from
the Tenth district, was a caller at re
publican headquarters this morning.
Mr. Horton says there is a rapidly
growing sentiment in favor of the
election of Hughes and Kennedy and
the state ticket in his locality. The
farmers are for Mr. Hughes. They
are wise to the prosperity proposition
and realize that it is not here by any
act of the democratic party, but
simply because of circumstances and
in spite ot the democratic congress
and the administration. They are
iroinir to vote for Hughes and the re
sult in that section of the country
will show that the people are not
for the present administration.
Butler County Assessor
Makes rror in Figures
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Aug. 30. (Special.) The
assessed valuation of the state will be
cut down to $500,886,292 because of
an error made by the county assessor
of Butler county in making his totals.
Secretary Bernecker received an
aihdavit this morning trom tne asses
sor stating that he had made' an error
in the footines. which made trie valu
ation $358,312 less than reported to
the state board. J his wjll make the
assessed valuation of Butler county
$8,435,212. instead of S8,7!,524.
Butler county was raised 5 per cent
by the state board, which would have
increased its valuation, $266,005, but
on account of the error of $358,312 it
would appear that Butler had put one
over on the board.

Chicago, Aug. 30. The nation faces
a serious shortage of fresh meats in
the event of a national railroad strike,
officials of the Union Stock Yards,
the world's largest cattle market, said
today. Til present supply, it was
announced, will last only three days.
Because of the heavy demand for
foreign export and the unusually
heavy domestic demand, the packers
have been unable to lay away a sur
plus for storage, Thomas E. Wilson,
head of the one of the largest pack
ing firms, said. The embargo placed
by railroads on the shipments of cat
tle and other perishables probably
will mean the crippling of the entire
packing industry of the country, he
"The embargo can only result in a
shutdown of certain sections of our
business," Mr. Wilson added. "The
packing houses have, of course, done
what they could to prepare for the
strike. We have stored as much as
we could and we have got as- much
live stock in the yards as possible.
The supply we have on hand, how
ever, will last no longer than three
If the packers cannot bring in anv
live stock, they cannot ship out anv
fresh meats under the perishable
goods prohibition." I

in the Chicago market for the present
average about 50.U00 weekly. About
HU.000 hogs are brought into the mar
ket and lu.UOO sheep each week.
