" la to Be Held Taeadajr.
Hugo Brandeis, youngest son of Jonas
L. Brandeis .pioneer founder of all the
Brandeis mercantile interests In Omaha,
succumbed at the Wise ' Memorial hos
pital yesterday afternoon at o'clock.
His. wife, his brother, Arthuh Brandels,
Mrs. ; Arthur Brandels, a , few close
friends . and ' the attending; physicians
were at his bedside when the grim reaper
beckoned.
Mr.. Brandels gradually weakened from
the shock of an operation for obstruction
of the bowels, performed at the hopsital
by.Drs. Bridges and. Jonas last Wednes
day, and after several slight turns for
the better had a serious setback about S
o'clock Sunday morning when he grew
restless, from want of sleep. His condi
tion gradually grew worse and his rela
tives and friends were .hurriedly sum
moned to the bedside. . ; , ' . , ;
-..End Comes Suddenly.
The end came at 6:50 p. m., when he
lost consciousness,' and when the next
ten minutes were over the little gather
ing In the silent chamber, heads bowed
and murmertng In prayer, knew that the
end had come. . Up until - the last ten
minutes Mr. Brandels was conscious and
appeared . to . recognize . persons in . the
room. ' ' v ', ' ' '' "
Since the recent Titanic disaster, which
carried Erall Brandels, his eldest brother,
to a watery grave, Hugo Brandels, who
had himself been ailing for some time,
showed the strain caused by the great
shock.' -Attending-physicians say that
he was in a-precarious condition prior
to the operation, and that the surgeons'
knife was the last desperate resort
Mr. and Mrs. Irving Srn (nee Miss
Ruth Brandels) of New T?rk City were
notified and are en route to Omaha-
Mrs. ' Arthur Brandels -returned home
from Colorado Springs Friday in re
sponse to a telephone call sent Thursday.
Her pm'Ervine Brandeia, had started
on a trip to Pikes pak at the time And

A cablegram waa sent last week to
Mrs. Herman Conn," a sister of the
deceased, who is traveling in Switzer
land, but she has not. been heard from.
H. Hugo Brandels was born In
Manitowoc, , Wis., in 1868 and ' therefore
44 years old. He was a son of Mrs. and
Mrs. Jonas I Brandels, his father being
the founder of the immense mercantile
firm of which, the Brandels sons later
became' mebers and built up and at
tained. ' ' ' ,
When the Brandels family . came to
Omaha, the youngest son, Hugo, was 14
years of age. Like ' his brothers, Em 11
and Arthur. Hugo developed a fitness for
business life.' He Is given credit for a
good share of the work In expanding the
Brandels stores into one of the largest
mercantile Institutions in the middle
west . .... ",.
A little more than twelve years age
Hugo Brandels was ' married to Miss
Lyela Edelman of. Los Angeles and since
that time they .have resided in Omaha
West Farnam district -
- Had Commercial Instinct. :
Mr. Brandels never held any public
office, being content to use his energies
towards furthering the commercial estab
lishment which grew at an amazing pace
under the guidance of the three brothers.
For the last several ' months he had
been under . the care ; of an attnding
physician and although able to be at his
desk with regularity, his vitality was low
and the sudden attack of obstruction of
the bowels found his physiclally unable
to resist the shock of the attendant op
eration. Only tentative arrangements for the
funeral have yet been made. The serv
ices will take place Tuesday from the
late residence of the deceased, 2870
Taciflc street and interment will be in

PAUL CLARK AT THE THROTTLE
Provreeslve Candidate for Congress
la First District Had Plan to
Hold Seaaiona Wlthont Glv
ins; Previona Notice.
(From a Staff Correspondent.) '
LINCOLN, , Neb., July a.-(Speclal.)-That
the - honesty and fairness of the
Teddyites is unquestioned when it comes
to the political game is evidenced by the
action of the Lancaster bull moose rs in
trying to keep the public from knowing
when and where the primaries for this
county are to be held. The county or
ganisation is strongly "progressive," that
is, the official part of it and it is said
that a scheme which emanated in the
brain of Paul Clark was to keep qu'vt
as to the place of the, primaries so that
the public would not know anything about
it and then tip off the faithful and thus
win enough bull moose delegates to con
trol the county convention.
Unfortunately for the scheme, "Bill"
Clark, a former well-known Burlington
political steerer, tipped off a Taft man,
supposing him to be a bull mooser, and
the game leaked out Fortunately for the
republicans of the county, the call was
finally' published this morning, one day
only before the primary for the conven
tion, giving the time 'and place for hold
ing the primaries and there is some pub
licity given to the call, which may result
in knocking out the scheme of the T. R.
men. , .
Paul Clark recognizes the fact that if
the Lancaster county republican conven
tion should send a regular republican del
egation to the state convention that it
will hurt his chances for being elected
to congress from this district; therefore,
It was necessary to pull off some kind
of a deal which would disfranchise the
regular republicans and give the Clark
fellows a chance to pack the primaries.
Whether this can be harmonized with the
bull moose war cry, "Thou shalt not
steal.", is a question yet to be settled.
! In any event, Monday will be a busy
day in Lancaster county politics, and,
while the "progressives" may win on ac
count of the non-publicity given the
primaries until the day before the time
for holding them, . yet the fact that the
opposition to President Taft has found It
necessary to resort to secrecy in the call
of the primary is evidence thatXhey have
little confidence that they could win in
an open and above board primary.
Omaha Road Paya.
The Minneapolis St Omaha railroad paid
its occupation tax of 8200 into the office
of the secretary of state Saturday and
the Milwaukee & St. Paul followed suit
with a like amount.
The democrats of Lancaster county are
bringing a great deal of presure to bear
upon ex-Chancellor Andrews of the state
university to induce him to become a
candidate- for the- legislature. They seem
to think that if they can induce Prof.
Andrews to make the race and stump the
county that - l'-w4H -fcelp-not- only-tha
county, but the state and national ticket
t ' Seymonr Sends Ont Word.
Secretary Seymour of thevstate board of
equalization- is anxlouslr waiting the re
sult of the messagessent out last Thurs
day to ' the" county assessors who have
not yet sent in the assessment reports.
Eighty-four counties have reported so far,
leaving eight which have not reported,
though the time was up July 10. These
counties are Box Butte, Custer, Dawson,
Dodge, Lancaster, Sootts Bluff, Stanton
and Thomas.
! The assessors valuation differ consider
ably from those fixed by the United
States census of 1910. By that authority
Douglas county 'has the most valuable
land in the state, being $131.99 per acre.
The lowest price land is' shown to be
Hooker county, according to the census,
which puts it at $5.73 per acre while the
assessor lists it at $2.84.
The counties which showed the highest
values are: Burt, $92.64; Clay, $76.54; Col
fax,' $77.61; Cuming, $77.30; Douglas, $90.33r
Hamilton, $75.12; Nemaha, $80.08; Otoe,
$79.36; Polk, $76.64; Sarpy, $79,27; Seward,
$85.35; Washington, $93.03, and York, $86.07.
The counties showing the least valua
tion are: Banner, $432; Blaine, $4.97;
Cherry, $3.79; Dawes, $4.85; Dundy, $4.65;
Grant, $3.81; Hooker. $2.84; Logan, $4.71;
McPherson, $4.06, and Sioux, $3.91.
For city and town lots Douglass stands
the highest with $1,794.43, with Lancaster
second and Polk third.
As an indication that live stock is not
the same kind all over the state or
that the assessors- look at them from
a different angle, horses are valued at
$102.08 in Gage county, while Hooker only
returns them at $35.15. Mules in Nemaha
county are worth ' $119.15, but Hooker
holds them only it $31.75.
Cattle are valued in Douglas county at
$29.55 per head, but out in Perkins county
they are placed at an even $15.
Cass county like her hogs so well that
she holds them at an average of only
$1.90 per head, while up in Banner county
hogs are valued at $3.05.

TOKIO. July 21.-What little change
was noted in the condition of the emperor
today emphasized the seriousness of his
illness. Following their first consultation
this morning the court physicians an
nounced 'that the patient's pulse, was
weaker. The bulletin was issued at 12:20
p. m. '
.This day of suspension closed with a
bulletin from the imperial bedside that
practically excluded hope for the recovery
of Mutsihlto, emperor of Japan.
At 9:10 p. m. tho four physicians in
consultation at the palace announced that
his majesty's symptoms were discourag-.
ing. The emperor has been unable to
sleep and was delirious. His heart action
was weak, his pulse eighty-two and his
respiration thirty-four.
The emperor's subjects and foreigners'
who have lived under his rule are united
tonight in their anxiety. All day long
members of the cabinet and , high offi
cials gathered In the outer rooms of the
palace awaiting word fom the sick
chamber, while a continuous stream of
callers registered their names with mes
sages of sympathy.
Regulations prohibiting unnecessary
noises and all forms of enjoyment were
unnecessary for, although the Japanese
are an undemonstrative people, enduring
personal and private troubles with stoic
ism, in the present situation the great
est depression and anxiety, are apparent
everywhere. v' .
Crown Prince Recovering".
Information from the sick room of the
Crown Prince Yoshito, who ' is con
valescing from chickenpox, is that the
heir apparent Is so nearly recovered that
he may be permitted to visit the em
peror's bedsieV tomorrow. Significant of
the general belief that the emperor can
not recover is the fact that most of the
callers at the imperial palace paid their
respects at "the residence of the crown
prince. .
It is understood that Kateura, th for
mr nremier. who 'left vil Ivm' J
On a mission to Europe, Is awaiting the
request of Marquis SaionJI, president of
the p4vy. council, for his return. This
request,, it. is believed, . will be issued the

is abandoned
Eepublican Report '
On Steel Inquiry to
Favor Curbing Trust
WASHINGTON, July 21.-The repub
lican members of the Stanley ' steel trust
investigating committee worked today on
a report of their views of the results of
the steel inquiry, and when it, is sub
mitted to the house It will create more
of a sensation than that prepared by
Chairman Stanley.
This assertion was made by a member
of the committee today. He said the re
publican recommendations would be more
far-reaching than those made .by the
democrats and that the bills to be sug
gested to the house would be for con
structive legislation to amend the trust
laws, rather than to censure the officials
who failed to curb the growth of the steel
trust. ',
The republicans will find much to
praise in the Stanley report, but will
differ from its conclusiona The finding
of the Stanley faction of the committee
will not be accepted by the republicans,
but some of the legislation proposed in
the Stanley report will' be endorsed.
Representative Gardner -at Massa
chusetts will resist the suggestion of
Chairman . Stanley that the reports and
data gathered by the commissioner of
corporations be made available to con
gress. He fears If the law is changed
the bureau of corporations will be un
able to get Information in the future.
Representative Gardner will stand by
Representative Stanley on the bill
amending the Sherman act by putting
the burden on defendants to prove that
their combination Is "not in unreasonable
restraint" of trade.
The republican members will not recom
mend the dissolution of the steel trust
They say that the committee long ago
decided that no move was to be made
to embarrass the government's suit
against the steel corporation, and they
will adhere to this decision.

JACKSON, Mich.. July 21.-Mlchlgan
progressive republicans divorced them
selves from the republican party in their
state convention yesterday.
By almost a unanimous vote the dele
gates went on record as favoring the
placing of an entire ticket, both state
and national, into the field. A few
Instructed delegates voted against the
move in order to record the sentiment
of their home counties, but explained to
the convention that personally they were
for separation from tne qio party. .
.Delegates to the national progressive
party convention In Chicago, presidential
electors,, members ef the state central
committee, were chosen today.
' !' ' Wntklns for' Governor.
' Members of the state. central committee
recommended State Senator L. .Whitney
Wat king of .Jackson for governor and
Theodore M. Joslyn of Adrian for United
States senator.
Friends of Governor , Osborn . protested
vigorously, but futllely, against the 'en
dorsement by the convention of a can
didate for governor. They Insisted the
people should not be offered any sug:
gestlons regarding candidates. . When the
convention endorsed Senator Watklns
circulation of Osborn petitions was be
gun immediately.
Nathan P.'. Hull of Diamondale was
recommended by the convention for can
didate for congressman-at-large, but he
declined to make the race.
The recommendation of the committee
does not mean nomination by convention,
however. - By ' trie provisions of the
Michigan primary law any man can
file a petition for any nomination on
the progressive ticket If he has a suf
ficlent number of names. Only six days
remain In which the petitions may be
filed with the secretary of state. Many
petitions were put in circulation st the
close of the day's session of the con
vention.
Dixon BrtnKS Message.
The coming of Senator Joseph M.
Dlxoq probably had as much to do wUh
carrying the "full ticket" plan as any
thing. The factions for a "stub" ticket
or the nomlnatloon of presidential elec
tors only, and the "full ticket" crowd
were lined up" for a bitter fight, when
he arrived. But he told them that
Colonel Roosevelt - wanted a full state
ticket and after that It was all over but
the shouting. The shouting, however, re
quired much time, for the convention
was as enthusiastlo as the 1,000 or more
delegates and a brass band could
make it
Frank W. . Knox, who had been head
ing the "stub" ticket faction and favor
ing an endorsement of Governor Osborn
as a republican candidate, was the first
man to taxe toe noor oi tne conven
tion and give up the fight.
Senator Dixon, while addressing the
convention, declared: . i . .
'It is a better chance now that Roose
velt will be elected than it was last
March that he would be nominated."
Henry M. Wallace of Detroit was
unanimously elected Michigan national
committeeman.

NEBRASKA FARMERS GET RICH
Tom Newell Has Something Better
Than a Gold Mine.
V
MAKES MONEY FIRST SEASON
Thle la Only One Instance of Many
that Told Abont In Loup , (
and Wood River '
Dlatrlcta. .
'The Nebraska farmers are tha bova
who are making money," said P.G. Law
rence of Claro, who was in the city over
Sunday at the Paxton. "On particular
instance that I have in mind Is that of
T. C. Newell, a farmer living northeast
of town, in' Loup Fork township, Howard
county. This county lies directly north
of Hall and while it Is mighty good, it is
no better than fifty others In the state.
"Tom Newell came to Howard county
five years ago and bought land of the
(Union Pacific, paying about $15 per
per acre for 160 acres. It was about the
time the company was closing out the
last of Its Nebraska land and this tract
was not considered choice. However,
there was about 120 acres of level land
and the balance was creek bottom and
hilly.
"Newell did not have much money after
making his payment building a shack
and buying a team, but he had plenty
of energy. He ran in debt for a few
cows and the first year his butter and
milk, and eggs from 100 henks, kept the
family and enabled him to lay aside a
little, cash. That year he broke out 100
acres. Next season he cropped this and
from the returns . made enough to pay
off all his debts and build an addition to
his home.
Makes n Big Killing.
'This year, Newell is making his big
killing. Last fall he put In 100 acres of
winter wheat and his net returns from
the crop is going to be not far from
$2,500. Every; year slnoe Newell has had
the land, It has made him a living and
enabled him 'to lay by something.
"Newell has .finished cutting his wheat
and has threshed some. The samples indi
cate, an average yield of 40 bushels per
acre, which ' in , the aggregate would
mean' $4,000 and if sold at 90 cents per
bushel, a fair price out at Cairo would
mean $3,000 gross for the crop.. To plant
mature and gather the crop has cost not
to exceed $1,300, which leaves a net return
of $2,400 from 100 acres, which is not so
bad. , -
Now this looks big, but It Is nothing
more than dozens of other farmers up and
down the , Loup and Wood , rivers have
done this season.'
