L Jl LESS THAN AMOUNT FIXED LAST YEAR Other Corporal Ion Pall to Make He laraa and Thin I l,ast Hay oa Wblrh They Mar - Do to. Secretary K. M. Morsman of the Ne braska Telephone company has filed the ereonal property schedule of that cor poration with Tax Commissioner Fleming for the 1M city sn.xessrnent. He ucs a schedule of Ms own for the classifications. A total valuntlon of W.H. la returned. This la less thiin the HHoment for the company fixed by the autho. tiles last year. It wan taxed on a valuation of ItsO.O. although an eMimnted value of only $3TS,S75 was returned. The voluntary figure at which the corporation la willing to be as sessed thla year therefor la Increased $41,606. ' Secretary Morsman makes the return In a typewritten sworn alatement that "the um of $419. WO, In my opinion, la the fu':l cash value of all personal property. In cluding franchise, owned by said company and subject to assessment for taxation In the city of Omaha for the aesment of the year 1SC3." Iacrease la Capital. On February 12 of the present year the capitalisation of the company wan In creased from H.fOo.ooo to $2,400,000, the W. OoO additional aharra being placed Imme diately on the market. It was announced that th money derived would be apent during 1903 on extensions, enlargements and Improvementa In Nebraska, principally In Omaha, Lincoln and at Council Bluffs. The new exchango build!ng In Omaha, now nearly completed, waa estimated at UVt.OoO and the new automatic switchboard at 1125,000. The building will be taxed with the real estate of the company and the switchboard has not been Installed. Aside from the electric light and tele phone companies other public service and private corporations have not returned schedules to the tax department. The time for so doing properly expires tonight and delinquents subject themselves to the Rasa of Others. Saturday there waa a great rush of small property owners and business men to got their shedules filed. "The Board of Review will not be greatly hampered for ten or fifteen days, at least, by the litigation pending over the new rev enue law," said City Attorney Wright. 'The majority of the shedules are not affected by the questions at issue and those that are may be laid aside, to be taken up after the court Is heard from on November IV. There la no reason to faar that the city aaseasment will be crippled or Involved in such a way as to prevent a generally uniform and equitable, taxa tion. Candidly, 1 have arrived at the con viction that the new revenue law is a vicious measure and I believe that the city of Omaha is much better off taxed under the old law than it would be under the new law. I have scarcely the heart to plead very strongly before a court for certain sections of the new measure, but of course have done and will do' all I can to uphold its constitutionality.' Defense will find Its most vigorous expression, how ever, In attorneys, who will represent a lot of newly elected county assessors, who will lose '.Their jobs if the law Is knocked out." . The tax department la silent on the question ot railroad assessments. This1 la because It does not wish to invite possible injunctions that might pervert the plans In view.

REFUSE TO EXAMINE BILLS Connolly', Hart, and McDonald Kailroad Chanty Hupital Olaimi Turough. VOTE DOWN MOTION F0RJNVESTIGATI0N O'KeetTe and llofeldt Attempt to Block the Action and Look Into Merits ( Mack Mooted Bills. 1 Tho session of the county commissioners yesterday was characterised by th. "railroading" of additional bills in connec tion with the alleged plumbing which was done at the county hospital. Since th. erection of the county poor building more or less trouble over the defective and high priced plumbing has been a feature of th. c mrrrfssloners' proceedings. When the de mand for an Improvement of th. plumbing at th. hospital became so strong that It could no longer be Ignored the commission ers authorised the repair of a certain por tion of the original plumbing. And when It had been Antahed the bills began to come In. aggregating nearly J7.000. One of theae tills wan before the commissioners, the amount being l,54.Sy. The bill waa sub mitted by Contractor Ca'fe and Hart, moved that the bill be allowed and a war rant drawn immediately for the same. O'Kxeffe said that such tactics plainly con stituted an effort to railroad the bill. Hrfaso to Investigate. O'Keeffe urged that the matter be In vestigated; that It would do no harm,, to lot the matter rest for a while until members o: the board could make an investigation. Thla view waa opposed by Connol'y, and when the matter was put to a vote it was favored by Connolly, Hart, and McDonald, while Hofeldt and O'Keeffe voted against It. A blind man, 8U years of age, named King, accompanied by his wife, 'made a pitiable spectacle when he appeared before th. board asking for assistance. He had com. to Omaha eight years ago with a little money, ajl of which he had spent in the effort to have hut eyesight restored. His sight was lost through the contraction of a heavy cold. The commissioners decided to give them a berth at the county hospital ui.tll some permanent disposition of their case could be made. Th. rare spectacle of a person vhoM taxes had been cancel'ed thanking the board for Its act waa deemed such an unheard-of Incident that th. clerk waa au thorised to read th. letter of thanks and It waa then ordered that It be spread on th. minutes twenty-two recruits were shipped to Ban Francisco yesterday. The recruiting party cloned its office and departed for Sioux Falls laat evening. ENDS A LONG ENGAGEMENT tkarlle Hark Units Islos PaclBe After Quarter Centnry for ' Great Western.
