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."

' ' SUPREME COURT GIVES OPINION IN AUBURN CASE 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.
