No Money in Sight for
, Increase in Pay of
. Firemen and "Police
, Where Is the cfty going to get the
.'.money to pay increases in salaries of
"policemen and firemen durin- the
year, 1919? This is a question which
City Commissioner Lire, superintend
ent of the department of accounts
and finance, is trying to solv;.
"When we considered the levy last
f ; July we 'counted on a possible irr
j crease of 10 per cent to the police-
4 men and firemen," he said. "The
I charter commission is now talking
; of increases of 10, 20 and 30 percent,
varVing according to the present sal
ary in each case.
"This .vould take about $175,000
extra for the year instead of, the
$100,000 we counted on when ' we
made the lvy.
"If the legislature grants au in
crease greater than 10 per cent we
shoufd also secure some legislation
which will enable us' to issue war
rants for the extra money above
$100,000 and then provide for taking
care of these warrants out of the
1920 levy." '

Modifies Decision in Bank Tax
Case; Mortgages Can Be
Assessed as Real
Estate Equity.
From a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Dec. 26. (Special.) An
advance indication of the Nebraska
supreme court's probable views up
on the question involved in the Au
rora bank case, where the First Na
tional bank of Aurora is attempting
to get a deduction from its tax as
sessment to the amoirht of Liberty
bonds that it held last April 1, is
contained in a decision announced
today in a suit filed by the Nemaha
County bank of Auburn against the
Nemaha county board of equaliza
tion and assessment.
This case hinged upon the claim
of the bank at Auburn that it was
entitled to deduct $81,000 of- real
estate mortgages from its total as
sessment of $84,000, leaving only
$3,000 subject to taxation. The dis
trict j:ourt refused to allow the de
duction. This judgment is modified
by the supreme court, which holds
that $12,700 of the mortgages were
deductible and the remainder not 1
The portion of which a deduction
is allowed consists of mortgages
that were made' without the proviso
requiring the borrower to pay the
tax. As these mortgages could be
assessed as real estate equity owned
by the bank, they are not subject to
taxation in another form, the high
bench declares. But no mortgages
are thus exempt where the borrow
er has agreed to pay the tax, there
by relieving the bank from its obli
gation. Similar to Aurora Case.
The opinion written by Judge
Cornish, goes into the question in
considerable detail. It interprets
the amendment to the Smith mort
gage tax law enacted by the legis
lature of 1915, which forbids tanks
and trust companies to deduct real
estate mortgages from their capital
stock assessments.
Issues in this suit were somewhat
similar to those in the Aurora bank
case, recently appealed to the high
bench- The Aurora bank claims
that Liberty bonds should be de
ducted from its capital stock assess
ment because they are nontaxable.
The state and county authorities
contend that no attempt has been
made to tax the bonds, and that
their possession by the bank does
not make its capital stock worth
more or less.
Supreme Court Upholds
Verdict in Saloon Case
Lincoln, Dec. 26. (Special ) The
supreme court renders an affirmance
in a suit from Douglas county,'
where Margaret Rapp secured judg
ment for $3,000 against Peter. Mos
crey, a saloonkeeper, and his bonds
men, because of the death of Wil
lian Rapp, who was shot while ca
rousing with two companions.
The two other men, Fred and
Peter Schroeder, were also shot and
fatally wounded. Although none of
the three was hurt in the saloon, it
was' held that the' liquor they had
bought and drank there made them
intoxicated and irresponsible.

Interurban Railway
Must Build Viaduct
Regardless of Cost
Lincoln, Neb., Dec.26. (Special)
The supreme court today ruled
that when the Omaha & Southern
Interurban railroad company failed
to appear before the. arpy county
board and object to the opening of
a new highway across its tracks,
being part of the boulevard drive
from Omaha to Bellevue, it there
by became liable for the construc
tion of an overhead viaduct.
According to the opinion pre
pared by Judge Lettnn it makes no
difference whether the viaduct will
cost $4,500, or any other sum. The
fact that the highway is not a neces
sary public road anil is used chiefly
for pleasure driving does not alter
the company's obligation, it holds.
