means of defeating the Income tax. and.
without resorting to personalities, he
i , criticised the position of the chairman of
the finance committee, who had presented
the corporation tax amendment to the
senate. Mr. Cummlna also paid his
respects to Mr. Aldrich on account of his
avowal of yesterday.
Much of the time today was devoted to
the consideration of the nation's ftnanoe,
but considerable attention was given to the
. general merits of a tax on Incomea, which
Mr. Cummins defended aa the most
rational because the most just, of all taxes.
Estimating the total revenues under tho
Aldrich-Payne bill at 1360,000.000 and those
to be derived from the internal revenue at
$2ltf000.000 he predicted that at the end of
the fiscal year, Mil, there would be a
deficit of not less than $175,000,000.

Uncle Sam Forbids Army
to Buy Trust-Made Goods
The United States government has laid an
Interdict against the purchase for Its own
use of goods made by a trust or a company
which has been "adjudicated to be a party
to an unlawful trust or monopoly."
The American Tobaoso company the To
bacco trust has been temporarily enjoined
on this ground and the commissary of
the Department of the Missouri forbidden
to buy any ot the smoking or chewing to
baocoa made by the trust or Its allied com
panies. Omaha wholesalers have bad a communi
cation to this effect from Lieutenant Colo
nel Eastman, chief commissary. His com

NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 30. President
Taft paused In the course of an after-dinner
speech to 1,800 graduates of Tale,
gathered at the annual alumni feast to
day, to Issue a serious note of warning to
congress, and to the leailers of the re
publican party. The president declared
that. If the party which placed him In
powi r, ami so long had controlled the gov
ernment, failed to live up to Its promises
and the expectations of the people, It
would he relegated to the position of a
minority opposition.
Mr. Taft had been speaking humorously
of recollections of his own college days,
which made his sudden change to a serious
tone of the lmportunt utterance upon na
tional affairs all the more impressive. The
president spoke extemporaneously, and his
utterances as to the duty of the party ot
which he Is nominally the head, seemed
the result of a sudden Impulse, rather
than of utudied Intent.
Mr. Taft made no effort to explain his
warning. The Yale men caught his mean
Ins, and the significance of tho remarks
coming at this time of the tariff debate,
however, and they stood and cheered for
several minutes. He had been speaking of
Secretary of War Dickinson, a democrat,
upon whom Yale today conferred an
honorary decree. He taunted the demo
cracy with the best of good humor as to
its present day condition, and this led him
Into the declaration as to his own party.
Comments on Deniocrury.
After paying trlbuteH to others upon
whom the university today conferred
honorary degrees, the president came down
to (Secretary iJlckinson and said:
"You went south of the Mason and Dix
on's line to get a secretary of war to give
a dcuroe to. It Is well that you did, bo
cause he is going to build the Panama
canal, and other universities will follow
where you got In early.
"One of the difficulties that has con
fronted Brother Dickinson, out in Chicago,
where he has a temporary rexldence, was
a discussion as to what constituted an or
thodox democrat, and whether really ha
ought to be counted as a democrat, if he
allowed himself to go Into a republican
cabinet.
Well, when you com to discuss what Is a
democrat these days, you are presented
with somewhat the same difficulty that
I have before me now in giving certain
rules for the construction of the pure food
law as to what whisky Is. They say
there Is 'straight' whisky, and then there
Is 'rectified' whisky, and then there Is
'Imitation' whisky. Now, I speak with a
good deal of hesitation In saying whether
my friend Dickinson Is a 'straight' demo
crat, or a 'rectined democrat. I would
not dare to say in his presence that he
was an Imitation' democrat.
'The truth is. and speaking seriously,
I consider myself almost fortunate that
I was ab'u to obtain for that Important
place In my cabinet a man who repre
sented the highest Ideals of the south; who
knew no section in his patriotism; whose
coming Into the cabinet was significant of
I the friendliness of a large element in that
southern section, that It Is in my heart
to bring closo to the north.
Repaltllean Pwrty Troubles.
"Vow. my dear friends, In suggesting dlf.
ferenees among democrats I am far from
Ignoring some difficulties that there are
on our own side. I remember In 1904 that
Charles Prancls Adams gave what I may
call a perfectly good Adam's reason for
the election of the democratic candidate
over the republic candidate. He said
that one of the essentials of a free gov
ernment was an ahle, patriotic and effi
cient opposition and that as tha demo
cratic party had utterly failed In reaching
toat Ideal he was in favor of putting the
republican party In that place.
"Now, I venture to say, that while that
may not be the reason which shall move
the American people, it is true that If the
republican party does not live up to Its
promises and what the people expect of
It, It will be relegated to a position like
that cf his majesty's opposition, and,
therefore, I may say by way of caveat,
that we have troubles of our own."
President's Busy Day.
The president had a busy day as the
honor guest of the Yale commencement
exercises. He attended a meeting of the
Yale corporation, spoke at the midday din

WASHINGTON, June . (Special Tele
gram.) Senators Gamble and Crawford
wtu-e at the Interior department this morn
ing to see about the opening to white
settlement of the Cheyenne and Standing
Rock Indian reservation, and found that
It Is expected all will be in readiness to
issue a proclamation opening these lands
during the latter part of August. The
commission engaged in appraising and

of prospective settlers upon these reserva
tions may begin about the first week In
October.
The department now has under con
sideration the claims of the various cities
and towns desirous of being named as
registration points. Senators Qamble and
Crawford have each received numerous
letters from officials of many towns all
wishing to be assigned as registration
points. The selection of the points where
registration will occur Ilea entirely with
Interior department officials and they will
make the designations with a view to ac
cessibility of the towns to the lands to be
opened, railroad and other facilities to ac
commodate the crowds which will assemble
to take a chance for these new lands.
More Land Hentored to Kntry.
The secretary of the Interior has vacated
the order of withdrawal under the reclama
tion act in connection with Belle Fourche
project In South Dakota, as far as the
same relates to 137,700 acres of land in the
Rapid City and Belle Fourche land dis
tricts, and restored the said lands to public
domain, where not otherwise withdrawn,
reserved or appropriated. These lands are
subjected to settlement on and after Sep

Alleged Filibuster Vessel
Stopped in New York Harbor
NEW YORK. June 30.-The British
steamer Ethelwold, a small and harmless
looking little steamer lying at the outer
edge of the forest of shipping which skirts
the south Brooklyn water-front, was neld
up by United State customs officers to
night on suspicion that the vessel was
about to engage In a filibustering expe
dition against the little West Indian re
public of San Domingo.
The order to detain the steamer was re
ceived tonight from Assistant Secretary
McIIaxg of the Department of Commerce
and ' Labor at Washington, and as
promptly executed by William Loeb, col
lector of the port of New York. The
Wakhlngton advices are that the minister
from Haytl hud complained to the State
department that the Ethelwold was te
lleved to have been engaged by Jose SL
Pierre Glordanl and General Juan Jimlnes,
San Domlngane, to lead In a filibustering
expedition.
Within an hour after receipt of ths order
Collector Doeb had two customs officers
on the ship. They were placed aboard
with orders not to let It sail.

ASSESSMENTS ARE REDUCED
Equalization Board Has About Con
eluded Its Labors.
MANY MORE CUTS THAN RAISES
llayden Bros. Have a 108,000 Cat
from Their Assessment, and Many
Others Make Successful Pleas
for Redactions.
v
After several weeks of wrangng with
property owners over their assessments,
Uie county board of equalization has con
cluded its scheduled business and ad
juurned. Nearly 600 clalma were heard
most of them concerning personal prop'
erty, as real estate cases were not taken
up unless absolutely necessary. The biggest
reduction made was upon the assessment
of llayden Bros., which was cut to $t000
from $4UO,000. Another big change was in
the case of Mrs. Mary E. McMenemy, who
wag. at first taxed upon llti.DGO, but upon
showing thut an assessment transfered
from Washington county was no lunger
valid, her property was valued at $900. The
lual case considered was the protest of
II. P. Iavltt, representing the Continental
Trust company, whose assessment tha
board raised from 12,600 to $6,700. Mr.
Leavltt asserts that the securities upon
which taxes are being levied are owned by
clients of the trust company and not by
the company itself. The mutter will prob
ably be considered.
The board, which consisted of members
Brunlng, Trulnor, Bedford, Plckard and
Kennard of the county commissioners,
County Clerk Haverly and County As
sessor Shrlver, with Mr. Tralnor as chair
man, will not dissolve organisation, but
will meet again next Saturday to consider
emergency cases and hold together until
about August 1. when final reports will

he had already appointed Samuel Patter
son, secretary, and seven examiners. These

reappointed by Governor Bhallenberr un
der the new law, but they will not be
affected. Treasurer Brian Is opposed to
giving a place to any examiner who ac
cepted an appointment at the hands of
the democratic governor, but the attorney
general and the state auditor have no In
tention of disturbing the examiners with
two commissions.

law also appropriated $3,000 a year, or $1,000

History of New Law.
The new law was the result of weeks of
toll by a special committee composed of
members of the senate and house of the
last legislature. After working over the
bill for some weeks, ths committee asked
for permission to employ counsel to draft
the measure, Mr. Bryan having left ths
state without doing It, and I. L. Albert
of Columbus waa employed. Judge Albert
drafted a bill which in all particulars did
not suit the committee, and tha Albert
draft was materially changed.
When the attorney general was Consulted
he advised that the guaranty section pro
vide that the banks may either give a
guaranty bond or contribute to a fund
for the guaranty of ths desoslla. This
advice was Ignored and the committee
drafted its compulsory guaranty section,
which was upon the one point mora than
any other that the opponents of tha law
made their most objections.
At this lime there are 664 banks char
tered to do business In Nebraska as state
institutions, of which fifty-three have been
chartered sine January 1. Fourteen banks
were chartered In June.
