Unless Mr. llryan's rase Is nn exception. It may be cited as ono of the strlklnR evidences of the pros perous condition of the cltliens of tho capi tal city. In 1SDS, tho democratic leader's personal and real property was assessed at a valuation of J210. while this year the valuation of the same class of property, undisputed by Mr. Uryan. is H G60. Business men and bankers In this city rerelvo Inquiries from eastern correspond ents concerning the financial side of Mr. llryan's life. Many of tbem ask for In formation concerning his legal career In this city, other want to know whether he Is a wealthy man and still others ex press a desire to bo Informed as to his mending as a cltlen. without regard to politics. Many of these questions have necessitated an examination of odlclal pub lic records and to meet tho constant de mand all figures pertaining in any way to Mr. Bryan, either to his financial status or to the votes ho has polled, have been compiled by tho various authorities who have them In charge and can bo produced In stnntly on application.

The deeds show the property ns purchared In the form of building lots nnd not by acres. On May 17, 1S93. Mr. 1'rvnn purchased four lots for J2.000. which row would be considered a ridiculously high price for the same land or any other prop erly In the vicinity. The transaction was med when property values at Normal were inflated r- reason of a boom. In 1S9S Mr. I ryati purchased eight lots adjoining for ( 1 .701 and at another time during tho same yeir ho obtained a clear title to thirteen lots for $C00. Of the twenty-llvo acres of land, only fifteen acres were under cultiva tion this jenr. the remainder being dl Mded equally between tho house and barn yard and an orchard of young fruit trees. In his campaign speeches Mr. Bryan has several timet said that after taking out the cost of plowing, sowing, harvesting and threshing, the net Income from his five acre oat field would not exceed 4 per cent on bis Investment, but he has aUo asserted that bis land cost him $100 per acre, In ncnd of $G. as reported In several news- papers. Ho has used bis own experience as n farmer ns nn argument In support of his contention that the farmer could not enjoy prosperity under republican rule. Farm land as good as Mr. llryan's can be bought In I.nncaster county for 125 per acre, or only one-fourth as much os Mr. Bryan paid, nnd If he realizes 4 per rent on $100 land, then $25 land will yield n return of 16 per cent on tho Investment. It would be dim ( nit to find more convincing evidence of the farmers' prosperity ROOSEVELT HELPS A CHURCH cm York' fSnvrrnor Make llnnd miiun Doiinllon to St. Thereu' t Lincoln. LINCOLN. Oct. 26.

Each gen eral election In Nebraska costs the tux pa) era of the state approximately JlOO.Ono, or nearly oU cents for each vote polled. Of this uinount only a very small portion, usually not exceeding J 1.000. Is paid out of the slate treasury. The remainder, with the exception of the coit of registration, which Is borne by the municipal corpora tions, U paid by the counties. The chief Item of expense Is the com pensation of Judges and clerks of election. In the ninety counties there are 1,700 vol Ine precrncts and in caeh are employed not less than three Judges and two clerks, while In many of the thickly populated counties there are five Judges and two clerks at each polling place. All election boards servo two days and their com pensation and mileage usually amounts to at least 125. One man In each precinct Is allowed ono extra clay's pay and mileage for carrying tho result to the county clerk. The construction of booths usually amounts to quite a large sum and for at least half of the precincts $5 Is allowed for the rent of tho room or house occupied. Delivering the ballot boxes Is nnother Item of ex panse which amounts to considerable After eUctlon each county clerk appoints two disinterested citizens to sit with himself on the canvassing board and theso men are allowed tho usual dally compensation and mileage. A police officer at each polling rlace costs M.-iou. Then there are other Incidentals, such as Ink. pens, envelopes, cards of Instruction and stamps, all of which help to swell tho total expense. the ballots cast at a generat election usu ally cost over J5.000. Two olflcl.il ballots and two sample bnllots are printed for every voter nnd. taking the vote of IMS as a basis, this means a total of PS0.000 ballots, which this year are printed at an average cost of JH per thousand. Tho elec tion notices in each county cost 2u. The state pays for mailing and register ing certificates of election, printing and publishing the nnnual election proclama tion and election laws, a copy of which Is given to each officer of election.

Men best posted on political conditions In the First congressional district agree that George W. Bergo, the fusion candidate for con grcssman. does not stand even a remote chance of election. This view of the sltua- lion is not entertaincu oniy oy rrpuu llcans but by fusionists as well, it being admitted that nothing less than a popo cratlc landsl'de can tako away from Con gressman Burkett the exceptionally large vote ho polled two years ago. An examination of the election returns I from tho seven counties In this district, for the last ten years will show that no fuslonlst ever received a majority of all , ote I down below JOO on only two occasions, the first being when Mr. Bryan wns a candi date nnd the second when Judge Tost was u candidate on tho state ticket. Accord- Ing to these returns and unless all signs , fail Mr. Merge cannot succceed unless ho cuts the Lancaster county majority down to 500 or less, which Is next to Impossible. VcnU Sinn In I.iiiicnMer. In Lancaster county the fusionists have centered their fight against the republican candidates for the legislature and have given but little attention to their congres sional nominee. The fact cannot be de nted that Mr. Berge Is much weaker ln( Lancaster county than In other sections of the district Several years ago h was a candidate for county Judge on the prohibi tion ticket and rccclwd not over 500 votes. He Is still regarded as a prohibitionist by many of the fusionists In this city nnd the fact will undoubtedly hnvc the effect of losing him qtilto a number of votes. Strong lights are being made In behalf of the fusion candidate In Nemaha and Otoe counties and while n few ofnes may be filled by fusionists there Is no Indica tion that either the congressional, state or national tickets will suffer. Johnson county Is strongly republican and gains are being made stoadlly In Itlrhardson county be cause of internal opposition to several fusion candidates. Many of the old-school populists in Hlchardson nre contemplating an open bolt against several of their can didates and all Indications point to the election of the entire republican ticket. The poll of the republican congressional committee shows gains In German pre cincts In Otoe county. Chairman Munger ! said today that he believed tho electors and all candidates on the state ticket would run about even with a plurality of 2,500 or Mk MrctliiK nt llenderon. IIKNDKRSON. Neb..
