70 FAIR A FINANCIAL WINNER Beoelpts Already Sufficient to Meet the Demand Upon Management. WASHINGTON TAKES COUNTY PRIZE Eaeentlve Ctatalttt ( Stat Teaen. era AuMtilln DtellM tm Hela tka Ham MMtlaf la Omaha. (From a. Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Sept 1. (Special.) Tha state fair wilt practically ba ovar tomorrow aft ernoon and the Indication now are that from a financial standpoint tha fair will be a success. Thla morning It waa figured that about $1,600 or. 12,000 taken in at the gate today would put the board on easy treat and notwithstanding tha threatening weather enough people paaaed through the gates to much more than make "up thla amount . In fact there could be no com plaint about the attendance, though, it courae, the crowd waa nothing like what 1 hia been tha laat two Oars. Several little ahowera fell thla afternoon, but theae were not ejfllclent to Interfere with the good natured crowd. More at tention today waa paid to the exhibit than on any day thla week, though the racei were not neglected by any mean Tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock will oc cur the atock parade and thla promisee to be worth seeing. The speed program to morrow also will be the beat of the week. In the contests of county collective ex hibits at the state fair today prtxea were won by counties in the order named: Washington, Kearney, Howard. Saline. Ne maha, . Brown, York. Frapjclln, Cuming, Webster. Adams. Furnas. Oosper, Richard eon, Sherman. . Hitchcock, Thomas, Fron tier. Scott's Bluff and Dawea. The attendance waa M.K38, against 22,023 last year and to the. grandstand there were ITS admissions, agalnat 4,639 last year.; Notwithstanding the statement of the manager of Dan Patch that the track was too heavy for the horse to make a go Tuesday afternoon aa has been announced, the Indignation of a disappointed multi tude haa not been appeased. Unless the feeling materially changes before the next .state fair, Jt will be useless for the board of managers to advertise a fast horse for tha first day of the,-fair. Hundreds of "people came In from 'the west portions of the state merely to see Dan Patch make Ms face and theae people hid to come' in Monday , In order to be here Tuesday. Many of them who left Tuesday without having even see the horse said It 'would not have been such a disappointment If the horse had been, driven around the track. Instead of that, however, he was lead In front of the grandstand and even the blanket waa kept on him. The Impression waa out yesterday that the horse would not make his supreme ef fort until today, consequently many people who really wanted to aee Dan Patch fulled to go out yesterday, but waited, hoplrg to see the big racer today.

Km Lilies Polltleal Ontlook. Osoar Knox, who represented Buffalo , county in the legislature during the laat - session, and who was unanimously renom inated by his county convention, is a vls ' itor at the state fair. Mr. Knox feels little apprehension at the outcome of the elec tion. "I believe the entire state ticket will be elected," he said, "and I believe Governor , Mickey will poll a larger vote than he did two years ago. I know he la stronger in my oounty than he was when be ran before, and I feel aure he will get an increased ' vote there. The revenue law is being used by the fuslonlsts in the legislative fight, but I feel no uneasiness on that account A number of parties in my county are pretty wrathy because they have to pay more taxes, but. In a majority of cases those who are paying so much more are the people who heretofore have been es caping their Just taxes. In my opinion the railroads are the most disappointed over the revenue law, but I believe when all the coilnty levies are In and the amount of taxes to be paid Is figured up even the railroads will not be made to pay much more." Lnylas; Posternr Cornerstone, The big cornerstone of the new post office will be laid at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning, with appropriate ceremonies.

FREB LARD HEAR HIMBOLDT Richard soai Connty Physician Seearee Homestead Wllhott Vrmrlnm Home. HUMBOLDT, Neb., Sept. 1. (Special.) In the scramble for the cheap Rosebud lands last month the cltlxens of Richard son county overlooked something pretty good in the way of homestead In their Im mediate vicinity, in. the shape of a twenty acre piece of land valued at $50 an acre, open to the homestead entry. The land la located near Preston in the east end of the county and has been farmed for many years by different owners of an adjoining tract, to which It was supposed to belong. Being of irregular shape and lying In the bend of the river It attracted no atten tion until quite recently, when Dr. Wells of Falls City discovered the situation ind entered Into correspondence with the gov ernment to ascertain what steps were nec essary to perfect a claim to the land. He was forward d The necessary btanks and a short time ago went to the land office at Lincoln and filed on the piece as a homestead. As no one disputes that, the title rested In the government it looks like the doctor has made a pickup of a clean $2,000 without going far from his dooryard, and it la safe to say the same condition doe not exist anywhere else In tha state.
