EASTERN STAR DELEGATES
PREPARING FOR ELECTION
The grand chapter of the Eastern Star
convened yesterday with about 800
delegates In attendance. The morning
was devoted to receiving the reports of
officers and at noon lunch was served In
the Masonlo temple cafe.
The automobile ride nlnnnsrt for h
i afternoon was something of a failure
owing to a crossing of wires at some
place along the line. Seventy-five cars
had been promised, but when the time
for starting arrived but twenty-two ap
peared. These were quickly filled and
went out on a tour of the city.
Delegates who were unable to go on
the automobile ride assembled in the big
nail of the Masonlo temple and visited.

for the Yenr.
Aescssed values for taxation of dwell
ing houses and other buildings In the
path of the tornado In Omaha will bo
reduced more than $200,000 by County As
sessor Counsman. He Is doing the work
of reducing assessments In the storm dis
trict himself and will finish It this week.
The lowered value will be effectlvo
with respect to county taxes for 1913,
since these are not due until next No
vember and become delinquent the fol
lowing May. It Is optional with the city
commission whether It adopts the re
duced valuation Immediately. The city
employ no assessors and the county's
valuations are used as the basis for
levying city taxes.
In the caes of the large number of
properties marked "total loss" on the as
sessor's books no tax will bo levlsd
against the buildings, but no changes
are made In the assessment of the lots.
Persons who think their assessments
have not been reduced enough will have
opportunity to protest when he county
board of equalization meets next month.
I'roperty values are assessed every four
years, no changes being made In the In
terval except In caso of error or destruc
tion of property. A regular assessment
was made last year.
Assessor Counsman Is finding some In
stances where houses previously were as
sessed too low and In these casea he also
lessens the amounts of damages allowed.
Among tho total losses reported by As
sessor Counsman In tho west part of the
city are houses of the following: Jona
than Mellon, $3,000: Joseph B. Archer,
$3,000 Mabel Adams McBride, $2,800; Hat

$2,100; George F, Smith, $3,000; Lottie
Plckrell, $2,000, and Jay May Hall, $3,500.
The assessment on the home of H, H.
Batdrlge was reduced from $8,000 to H.OOO.

in the Charter
"Of course, the new city charter will
have a section relating to city elections
Just as the present city charter has and
as every charter of every city in the
country has," said Victor Kosewater,
president of the charter convention, In
answer to a question. "Tho charter will
have to tell what officers are to be
elected and when they are to be elected
and the form of ballot, If It Is to be a
nonpartisan ballot! and provide for
special elections and recall elections, tf
there are to be any. As to who should
Issue the election proclamation or make
the roll of registered voters or appoint
tho election officers for city electlqns,
that has not yet been discussed and there
may be a question of authority Involved.
It mutt be remembered, hoover, that
the legislature may repeal or change Its
election laws and the city under a home
rule charter might find Itself up In the
air unless authority were lodged some
where to provide for elections In such a
contlngenoy. If the Jetate election laws
made by a legislature are superior to
charterregulations they will supersede
them and no harm done."

NEBRASKA WHEAT IN DEMAND
Minneapolis Millers Contract for
THEY NEED IT BADLY AT ONCE
Wheat Grown In ThU State
BUnded with the Hard Wheat
at the North Slakea nn
Minneapolis millers have concluded that
they cannot set alonx without Nebraska
rrhtat and as a. reeult their representa
tives are In Omaha cloilntc up a deal to
take 600,000 bushels for Immediate ship
ment, paying the highest market price.
ThU U the largest transaction In actual
wheat that has ever taken place since
Omaha became a grain market.
The first out shipment of the purchase
starts Thursday morning-. It will con
sist of seventy-five cars, divided between
the Rock Island, the Oreat Western and
the Northwestern. Other cars will follow
as rapidly as they can be loaded.
Monday the Omaha elevators contained
678,000 bushels of wheat and 1,000,009 bush
els of oats, Minneapolis takes practically
all of the wheat and the major portion of
the oats have been sold for delivery
south, shipments going out at the rate of
fifty to sixty carl dally.
The reason for Minneapolis millers
clamortnfg tor Nebraska wheat became
apparent a few months ago. Indications
ar taat the demand will always con
tinue. Formerly all of the flour turned
out by the Minneapolis mills was from
the hard wheat fields of Minnesota and
th Dakotas. It was not satisfactory,
being too light and chaffy. It needed
something to give It more body.
There was a problem to be solved and
seeking a solution the millers tried mix
ing their northern wheat with a softer
variety. They bought wheat east and
west, but none of It filled the bill until
they gat that from Nebraska. The Ne
braska wheat they discovered was Just
what they wanted, for when blended with
the hard it made a flour that Was looked
upon as perfection itself. As a result. It
Is contended that in the future Nebraska
wheat will always have a "market at the
Minneapolis mills, where it will bring top
