In regard to the right of metropolitan
cities to place their own aeeeesed valuation
on the railroads tbe court says:
I I 15 CUIIirillltn 1 1 V I 11 T I Tlfl HJ1 II 1 1 1 , VII.'
It Is contended by the relatora that the
certain aaseaament laws with respect to
municipal taxes In cities or the metronon
tan class and those of the first class hav
ing a population of over 40,000. a much
higher standard of valuation or property
for aaaesnment purposes prevails than the
"-'"B" oinuiu imhiiiiiib unum kmiv "
visions of th general revenue law.
It Is In evidence that In the city of
Omaha, a city of the metropolitan class
the standard of value In the valuation and
assessment of property for municipal pur
poses is 40 per cent or its market value;
that in the cities of Omaha and South
Omaha, which have a population bringing
them within the other class mentioned
property is assessed for taxation for muni-
clpal purposes at Its actual cash value. The

Early this evening s telephone message
was received by the local police stating
that a man answering the deacrlption of I
Toung had been seen walking along the
railroad tracka near Stevenaoa In com-
pany with a tramp. Two officers, Louis
Knapp and Robert Pierce, were hurriedly
sent in tbe direction of that town to Inter-
cept the men. Three mile, above here, dl-
rectly opposite the house of Robert Hun-
man, two men were seen coming down the
tracka. The officer, alourhed up to them
and gave the impression that tbey were
tramps. One of the men waa recognized a.
local character, Cunningham by name.
Tallies with losag'i Description.
Tbe officers looked closely at Cunning
ham's companion and tbe resemblance to a
photograph of Young which they had seen
was so startling that they had no doubt
aa to his Identity. To capture him it waa
necessary to proceed carefully, for the sus
pected man kept hi. right hand In hla
coat pocket and the officer, feared that he
carried a weapon. Several attempta were
madr. to throw the man off his guard and
the officers were finally successful. Pierce
produced a bottle of whisky and asked the
man to have a drink. The man withdrew
hi. hand from hi. pocket and took the bot
tle. In an Instant he was covered with
two revolver.. He dropped the bottle and
waa about to put hi. hand back Into the
pocket, when warned that they would

Tbs officers then closed tn en the man
and Knapp .lipped a handcuff on his right

wa. subdued. Questions put to tbs man

qustnted with hia whereabouta. In fact, he

The officers then took their prisoner to I
headquarters in Derby. When seen in a
bright room the likeness to Young waa
more apparent than ever, despite tbe fact
that a disguise had been attempted. He
wore a new pair of overalls, light slouch
hat and a light rat and vest. The gold
tooth which ln the description sent out
had been so prominently mentioned was
Immediately looked for. It waa missing,
but Instead wss s hole In the gum where a

No revolver waa found on the man, but
two of hla pockets were full of red pepper.
The prisoner aaid be had been drunk for
three days and carried the pepper to sober

mltted that if he had bad the chance he
would have filled the eyes of his csptors
