Nebraska 1AX ACESIS AKUfi WARMLY Expert Polleys Presents a Method Full of Possibilities. SOME EXAMPLES WORKED OUT Expert Malllgan of the Rock Island Bar Ienrlt Is Mot Taxable and Shows Hla Road la. Loser. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, May 20.-8peclal.)-It is very evident that the State Board of Assessment Is going to get some valuable information from the various tax agents of the rail roads who are here, or have been here, making arguments for a decrease In the assessment of the roads. And, Incidentally, If other states are on the lookout, they will be able to get some Information which will be of value to them. T. A. Polleys of the Chicago. Milwaukee. Minneapolis & Omaha has started the ball by proposing to the State Board of Assessment a com posite, or 'automatic,-' theory for the as sessment of all railroad property. By three methods which he used Mr. Pol leys was able to reach a valuation of his line In the neighborhood of the figures of the census bureau. He then proposed a plan evolved from the three methods. I'n der this plan his road would be reduced In Nebraska from an actual valua of S42 a mile to 137. 542 a mile. Should Mr. Pollejs use his same plan 'n his argument to the Iowa State Board of Assessment his road would be Increased from S5S.0O0 to $121,970. The gross earnings of I18.K51.57 per mile, capitallied at 16.40 per cent, would make the value of his road in Iowa $110,740. The net earnings of $7.539 4 a mile, capitalised at 66 per cent, would make the line worth $133,200. Adding the two values and dividing by two, would make the value of the road in Iowa $121,979. This calculation does not Include a small branch line In Iowa, which would make very little difference In the result. It being some sixteen miles in length and valued at $25,000 a mile. What State Flixnrea Show. According to the reports of the state auditor, this road, which Is a part of th Northwestern eyntem, has got off easier than any of the ether roads In the matter of having Its aasefsmcnt increased. In 1903 the auditor's report shows the Minne apolis A Orr.aha rood waa assessed at $5,500 a mile. It was Increased In 1904, when the big raise waa made in ull railway property, to $8,500, or 54Vj per cent. Since that time the assessment of this road has not been changed, although the assessment of other property and other railroads has been largely Increased During tho sam time the Burlington main line has been Increased ft! per cent and its branch lines 95 per cent, the I'nlon Pacific main line has been Increased 117 per cent and the OniaUa & Republican Val ley branch 163 per cent and the Kearney branch 119 per cent. In the four years following the big increase the Burlington main line has been Increased, according to the auditor's report, 10 per cent, the branch lines, per cnt and the Union Pacific main llnj M'b per cent, the Omaha Re publican Valley branch 41H and the Kear ney branch 38 per cent. The Northwestern propet in tho five years was Increased M per cent and In the last four years S per tent. Three years ago Feter Mnrtensen, then state treasurer, trade an effort to Increase the valuation of the Northwestern, but he was unable to get the majority of the board to stand with him. Malllaran Argues Warmly. J. W. Mulligan, assistant tax agent of the Rockealand, made a plea for his road to the board this morning and he attacked the right of the board to place a value upon the franchise of his company. Not withstanding the law requires the board to do this. Mr. Mulligan said there was a possibility of franchise values but not under conditions which surround a railroad the stocks and bonds of which are below par and where there Is a deficit Instead of a net earning, as Is the case with the Rock Island. "The best evidence that the franchise of a railroad has no value except what it cost," Mr. Mulligan said, "and Is not a legitimate subject of taxation, Is the fact that nobody haa ever been able to put a value on a franchise and then give a sen sible, logical or coherent reason for his conclusion." The tax agent said the state practically admitted that the physical value of his line was $26,263.53 a mile, but It permitted the road to earn only $90.49 a mile, which on the basis of the net earnings would make the value of the line only $16,241.50 a mile. The Rock Island in Nebraska earned In 1907 $1,521.49 net per mile and in 19i it earned $1,22. 75 net per mile, according to the statement of the tax agent. Hope for Royal hanffer." The state board of secretaries of the state board of health, retiring. Is very much wrought up over the appointment of ONE IN THRICE Bvery Third Paraon Volaoaed by Coffee. It Is difficult to make people believe that coffee Is an absolute poison to at least one person out of every three, but people are slowly finding It out. although thou sands of them suffer terribly before they discover the fact. A New York hotel man says: "Each time after drinking coffee I be came restless, nervous and excited, so that I was unable to sit five minutes In one place, was also Inclined to vomit and suf fered from loss of sleep, which got worse and worse. "A lady said that perhaps coffee was the cause of my trouble, and suggested that I try Postum. I laughed at the thought that coffee hurt me, but she in sisted so hard that I finally had some Pos tum made. I have been using It In place of coffee ever since, for I noticed that all my former nervousness and Irritation disappeared. I began to sleep perfectly, and the Postum tasted as good or better than the old coffee, so what was the use of sticking to a beverage that was ruin ing me? , "One day on an excursion jp the country I remarked to a young lady friend on her greatly improved appearance. She explained that some time before she had quit using coffee and taken Postum. "She had gained a number of pounds and her former palpitation of the heart, hum ming In the ears, trembling of the hands and legs and other disagreeable feelings had disappeared. "She recommended me to quit coffee and take Tostum and was very much surprised to find that I had already made the cluing. 'She said her brother hd also received great benefits from leaving off coffee and taking on Postum." "There's a Reason." Read "The Road to Wellville," in pkgs. vet road the above letter a asw ona appears from tuna to time. Thay are ga (Oa, true, ul (all of human, latere. Nebraska Pr. K. Arthur Carr to be a member of the hoard, and for that reason they may put It up to the members of the state board of health to appoint Ir. F. W. Tukr to succeed Dr. Wilson as state health inspector. It has been the general opinion around the state house that Governor Shallen bcrger had Intimated he Intended to ap point Dr. Tucker to this place and there is no doubt Dr. Tucker would like the place and around the democratic state headquarters there is an Impression that the doctor earned some place. The great question is whether he should be the state health inspector or the royal "Chauffer," which position he filled so admirably before and after the election. With a royal "chauffer" it is probable tho state would save money compared with, the rate charged for royal harks and car riages. Besides, should an accident occur the royal "chauffer," being a licensed physician, could treat the royal patient himself. But not considering the Job of royal "chauffer," the board of secretaries is em powered by law to recommend three physi cians to the state board for appointment as health inspector. The board members are of the opinion the governor is pledg.'d to Dr. Tucker, so if the Include the doctor In their recommendations it will be up to the governor to either turn the Lincoln doctor down cold or follow out the doctor's desires and appoint him. Hither m-ay the governor acts he will disappoint some one.' Colonel Rberly'a Stair. George A. Bberly of Stanton, recently elected colonel of the First regiment, Ne braska National Guard, has appointed the f"llowlng staff officers, whose selection has bpen ippioved: Jerome A.

The democratic campaign committee has filed its account of expenditures during the recent city election. The amount expended Is placed at $402.90 and the amount received at $403.50, leaving a balance of 20 cents. Robert Malone, the candidate for mayor, heads the list of subscriptions with $70.

At a session of the city council last evening the city engineer reported hla appraisal of the water works plant of this city now belonging to the North Platte Water Worka conujany. The council had requested the report at a former session, to get at a basis of nego tiations to buy the plant from the concern that now owns It. The city engineer fixed a value of $50,802.09 on the plant. This did not Include some small extensions which .will add a few hundred dollars. This is about $8,000 lower than the city engineer' former estimate, but the dif ference is due to the fact that iron piping is now I to I per cent, cheaper and there has been some depreciation In value since. It is thought that the solution of the water works proposition will soon be had by a purchase by the city of the present plant. Get Six Cents and Rnln Safe. NORTH PLATTE. Nib., May 30.
