Denies Request of State Board
of Control to Include
Appropriation in Spe
Lincoln, July 25. Governor Mc
Kelvie will not follow the sugges
tion of the State Board of Control
to incorporate in the call for spe
cial session the appropriation of an
additional sum so that state insti
tutions may be able to run through
the bienuium without running out of
funds. The board calls attention to
the fact .that during the last bien
rium the appropriation was inade
quate to meet the advance in prices
and ran short $287,500, which the

last legislature had to include in its
Attention also is called to the fact
that when the legislature made the
appropriation for the present term
members figured that prices would
go down and actually made a small
er appropriation than was used by
the institutions the last term. In
stead of that prices are going up
with every indication that they will
In his reply to the letter of the
board, the governor says that he re

board is correct, but that he does
not see his way clear to incorporate

Keep Hammond Baby
Pending Court Trial
Lincoln, July 25. The contro
versy over the custody of William
Wells Hammond, two-year old
child of William B. and Elizabeth
Hammond of Omaha, has come to
the supreme court and this after
noon the court set a time for hear
ing in September on application of
Attorney Cunningham, appearing for
the grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. W.
H. Hammond, asking for the cus
tody of the child.
It appears that some time ago in
divorce proceedings between Mr.
and Mrs. W. B. Hammond, father
and mother of the child, the latter
was given to the grandmother for
keping. Later the mother went into
court and secured the custody of
the child with a provision in the or
der that neither father nor grand
mother coult? visit the child. The
action of the court today give the
child back to the grandmother pend
ing a hearing in September by the
Profiteering in Excess
Is Charged in Lincoln
Lincoln, July 25, (Special). The
charge has been made that profiteer
ing is being carried on in Lincoln to
a greater extent than in any other
place in this part of the country.
At the time of the state house pic
nic a week ago one of the depart
ment heads telephoned his butcher
to send him a couple of spring chick
ens. The chickens came and with
them a bill for $3.60, which accord
ing to the weight of the chickens
must have been about 60 cents a
pound. Buyers of poultry in the
city are paying 35 cents a pound to
day while the same chickens are
selling on the market at 58 cents. As
the purchaser has to pay for every
thing but the feathers, the grocer is
making a profit off of the chickens
of 23 cents a pound which would
mean that a three-pound chicken in
creases in value after the feathers
have been picked off just about 69
According to reliable information
automobile owners are paying 22
cents a gallon in Sioux City for
gasoline; 22.8 cents in Kansas City;
23 cents in Council Bluffs and 24 1-2
cents in Lincoln.
There are only two items, widely
divergent, but they tell the story.
Fremont Man Makes $300
Per Acre From Potatoes
Fremont, Neb., July 25. (Spe
cial.) Sam Maxwell, a Fremont
truck farmer, is harvesting more
than $300 worth of potatoes to the
acre, while most all other gardeners
are sadly disappointed in the yield
of tubers. Mr. Maxwell has sold
$1,500 worth of spuds from less than
five acres. He attributes his success
to treatment of the seed before

15? & HARNEY
in Bank Assessments
Lincoln, July 25. (Special.)
Nina counties have not mad re
ports of valuation to Secretary Os
borne of the State Board of Equali
zation, and until these are in the
total valuation of the state cannot
be ascertained. The secretary has
authority under the law to send a
man after the reports at the expense
of the county if they are not on
hand within a reasonable time.
The state board met this morning
and considered the .matter of the
First National bank of York, which
had deducted from its assessed val
uation $5,500 for real estate mort
gages, and the Fidelity Trust com
pany of Fremont, which had de
ducted $7Z,5UO, leaving its assess
ment about $24,000.
The matter of the assessment of
518 head of cattle in controversy
between Box Butte and Morrill
counties was also taken up by the
board. The cattle are-owned by
Charles Tiernan, owner of ranches
in both counties. Box Butte county
claims that Tiernan turned in his
assessment in Morrill county be
cause he had had trouble with the
assessor of Box Butte county. It is
claimed the cattle were raised m
Box Butte county and were assessed
there last year. The- matter will be
referred to the Box Butte county
The report of the assessor from
Scotts Bluff county was not satis
factory in the mind of Secretary Os
borne. Banks were allowed to de
duct stock owned in federal land
banks, interest on time deposits and
to deduct real estate at a higher
figure than was carried on its books.
All Omaha banks have lived up
to the law in making deductions
and the board is satisfied with the
reports from Douglas county.
No Congestion Here
Nebraska Wheat Crop
Although wheat is comine onto
the Omaha market at the rate of
300,000 to 500,000 bushels a day.
railroad freight officials are of the
opinion that it is going to be some
time before any congestion wilt be
apparent at the local grain terminals.
The Omaha terminal elevators
have a storage capacity of 15,000,000
bushels. At this time not to exceed
1,500,000 bushels are in storage.
Grain is coming in fuly as rapidly as
usual at this season, but it is mov
ing out in large quantities, being
taken over by millers from the
states to the south and east of
The Nebraska grown product is
in great demand by outside millers,
it having the reputation of making
the best flour of any wheat pro
duced in the United States.

Dr. E. E. Stauffer, president of

Surplus Stock Ordered Confis

ing Investigation of Bro
By E. C. SNYDER.
(Staff Correspondent of The Omaha Bee)
Washington Bureau, Omaha Bee.
Washington, July 25. M. B.
Newman, oresident of the Newman
Brokerage company of Omaha, it
is understood, has been authorized
by Quartermaster General Rogers
to inspect a large quantity of sal
mon in storage in a government
warehouse in Omaha to ascertain
whether it is fit for human con-
This order grew out of a number
of letters received by Representa
tive Jefferis from Mr. Newman who
wrote him that there were 18,000
cases of tall red salmon in storage
bv the War department and asked
that the congressman lend his as
sistance in getting the department
to sell the same if the surplus
stock will be available as the
canned salmon was barren and the
new salmon pack would not arrive
for at least 60 days.
Mr. Jefferis took the matter up
with E. C. Morse, acting director of
sales of the War department. Upon
investigation he stated' that the sal
mon referred to was of the 1918
pack which had been found bad and
was to be returned to the packers
He further said that this return
would be made through the pure
food service in order that it might
personally supervise its destruc
tion. This information was communi
cated to Mr. Newman who replied
by stating that it was a source of
great surprise to him to learn that
last year's salmon pack of the brand
mentioned was bad and that in his
more than 15 years' experience as a
broker he had found practically no
trouble with the red Alaskan salmon
as put out by reputable packers. He
further stated that there had already
been sold for shipment from the
Pacific coast some of the same pack
sold to the government, that the
same had already been released and
he knew the salmon to be good. Ad
mitting that there is some salmon
put up by irresponsible packers that
may be bad, nevertheless Mr. New
man said he did not believe the
statement that all the salmon of last
year's pack sod to the government
was deleterious to public health.
In view of this statement Con
gressman Jeffries thought it a
.proper matter for investigation and
turned the matter over to his col
league, Congressman Reavis, chair
man of the sub-committee of the
special committee now engaged in
investigating the, War department.
Mr. Reavis took up the matter with
Quartermaster General Rogers,
who has ordered that Mr. Newman
be permitted to inspect the stock of
.salmon in storage in Omaha and re
port the resulit of his investigations.
