LINCOLN , Nov. 30. ( Special. ) The re- > ort of State Auditor Eugene Moore for the ilennlum ending November 30 , 1894 , has > een prepared and wilt be submitted to Gov- rnor Crounso tomorrow. The report , In Its penlng , calls attention to the revenue laws , which. It Is claimed , are grossly Inadequate. t Is very difficult to raise revenue enougli o cover current appropriations. During the hrce past biennial periods there were ap propriated $7,090,000.41. The total tax levloa 'or the same period were $7,453,030.58 , or 513,009.81 less than tha appropriations , Icav- ng an average delinquency of .0506 per cent of levies made , or an average rate of 0.953 mills on the dollar. milT The present biennial average valuation ot ho state Is | 189 , 225,311.75 , with an average tax levy of G.GC mills on the dollar , produc- ng $2,521,003.72 , of which $2,208,910.26 were appropriated by the last legislature , leaving an excess ot levies over appropriations of $312,063.46. : The appropriations of the state have ex ceeded < amounts derived from taxes of th * past eight years by the sum ot $737,033.33. or an excess of $230,946.37 In appropriations over total tax levies. In the opinion ot tha auditor. ] he Is warranted In the conclusion that no less than 10 > er cent ot state levies for the ensuing jlennlum will bo delinquent. Modification of revenue laws Is urged to Increase the rate of levy possible by the State Board of Squallzatfon. or , as an alternative , enforce assessment of property at nearer Its real value. It Is considered by the auditor to bo too low at present. Rigid economy must obtain In all departments In order that rev enues may pay expenses of the state. Much ) valuable Information has been collected .ouchlng the revenue laws of sister states. The auditor also recommends that legislation should be more specific In form of appro priations by particularizing full amounts ana purposes The statement of mortgage Indebtedness of the state Is Incomplete , as-the officers charged with making these returns have failed to do so. Laws concerning the printing and dis tribution of books , blanks , etc. . It Is recom mended should be amended to define the exact formsto be used. SPENT TOO MUCH MONEY. Many errors of long standing have been corrected and a uniform system of accounts Is being Installed. In Several Instances- flclencles have been detected. The auditor calls attention to the enormous expenditure ? of legislative assemblies , and urges economy In the future. The session of 1891 cost for officers , members , employes. Incidentals , etc. , $143,833.35. The session of 1893 cost for the same items $119,807.16 , or $24,026.19 less. The session of 1891 cost over $1,001.45 for each member , or $763.65 for Incidental ex penses and clerk hire for each member , and $317.80 for salary and mileage. The session of 1893 cost $902.31 , or $317.16 for salary and mileage , and $585.13 for Incidentals and hire. In the opinion if the auditor the Insurance laws of the state should be repealed and others enacted. Life and accidental Insurance methods he considers mperfect. Bonds of all classes aggregating $1,935,007 have been registered In the auditor's office during the past two years , and $200,000 worth of bonds refused registry owing to legal defects. The present banking laws are touched upon and a vigorous law recommended covering bond and Investment companies. SOME OF THE DEMANDS.

NEW YORK , Nov. 30. William Stelnway ins contributed aomo ot his personal recol lections of Anton Rubinstein to a musical journal , which will bo published tomorrow. Referring to the visit of Rubinstein to this country , ho says : "Ono day Mr. Rubinstein came 'to me , learlng in his arms a largo bag ot gold and sliver. He then told me that having heard n Europe that the majority of the people , n America wcro 'rascals' and that their paper currency in most Instances was not , : oed , ho had exacted in his contract that Ills money should bo paid to him In coin , ? semi-monthly In advance. The flrst two weeks' salary he was holding In his arms , and did cot have the least Idea what to do with It. I explained thp depreciated currency to lilin. told him that the system was ut any rate better than In Russia , where It was at a discount ot CO per cent , and advised him to promptly sell his specie. "Before lie left New York for his tours through the country he called at Stelnway hall one afternoon about G o'clock for his mall. A bulky registered letter had come for htm und It contained letters from hlj children , a long letter from his wlfo and newly taken photographs of his family. Tears came Into his eyes as ho unit ! to me : 'Friend Stelnway , I feel BO happy that I must play for you. ' "Meantime It had grown late and every thing was closed for the day. Four other musical gentlemen whom ho personally knew had come In. Tbe doors were closed and he sat down at the grand Stelnway piano to play for us. Twelve o'c'.ock at night found us there spellbound , ter such heavenly playIng - Ing tfo had never heard before. "Then and only then I realized what four celebrated men could do. Goethe , who wrote the poem of the 'Erl King ; ' Franz Schubert , who had composed tha melody ; Franz Liszt , who had transcribed It for the pianoforte , and Anton Rubinstein , who could play It. At the risk of being called sentimental I must say that on that memorable night It appeared to us as If we heard the voice ot the little child , the clattering of the horse'n feet , the wild entreaties ot Erl King as plainly as if wo had witnessed It all our- selves. "On Wednesday , September 14 , 189 ? , I visited Dresden and received an Invitation from him to call and see him at his hotel , He received me In the most friendly man * ner , and said : 'Now , friend Stein way , let us have a chat about America , the great country which I have never forgotten , and from which I receive almost weekly tokens ot friendship. ' "After describing to him the Immenta progress In America toward appreciating really good music , and that especially to thu reflwrnunt and culture of our American ladle * was duo the lilKh state of art and taste for music , I was staggered by Rubin stein's reply. " 'Well , friend Stelnway.1 said he. 'I think ladles ought nuver to study muslo as an art. At least they ought not to take up the tlmo of teachers who are able to teach and mnke true artists. And I will tell you why , ' he added. 'There Is no question but there are twenty musical ladles to ono musical man , and my own experience Is that they learn more quickly , have more poetry , and In fact are more diligent pupils than men , nut what Is the Invariable result ? Wbeo a young lady has become a perfect artlit some handsome mustache comes along , and inn chooses the htndtom * mustache in Drefer- enco ta her art. "
