ACT GOES SMOOTHLY
SECRETARY ROYSE GIVE8 VIEWS
OF NEW BANK LAW.
MOVES ALONG IN GOOD WAY
Some Sections of the Enactment, He
Believes, Should Be Made Less
Secretary Royso of tho state bank
ing bonrd made his annual report to
the governor, outlining the present
statUB of the banks of tho state and
making comment and suggestions
upon the present conduct of these in
stitutions. Ho admits that the now
bank guaranty deposits law has been
put Into effect with much less friction
thnh wnB flrat thought would be tho
case by some of the members of tho
stato administration. Secretary Royse
points out n number of things of con
siderable Importance, somo of which
ho gives, as his personal opinion,
could bo somewhat Improved upon.
ho says In part in his report:
Tho porlod covered by this report
Is marked by u very satisfactory con
dition of the banks under supervision;
no failures to bo reported, In fact Ne
braska haB not had a bank fuiluro In
five years, has not only ono In eight
years. An Increase In deposits over the
preceding year Is shown, while there
has been a general slowing down of
business the stability of the banks
hns remained unimpaired.
Since this department haB had the
plcasuro of addressing you tho new
banking act hnB been put in force,
and I am pleased to stato with loss
disturbance than was anticipated.
Some friction has arisen between the
banks and department in tho enforce
ment nnd lnt'erpretntton of somo of
the provisions of thewaw not clearly
defining elthor tho duties of tho de
partment or tho rlghtB of tho banks,
resulting in the necessity of arbitrary
interpretations on the part of the
board, and In somo instances a resort
to the courtB to determine the rlghtB
of tho banks and the intent of tho
law. It Is hoped theso defects may bo
remedied by the next legislative body
so that tho law may bo enforced with
A basis for levying assessments for
tho guaranty fund, section 45 of the.
banking net, provides that banks
shall, on tho first day of June, 1911,
and each six montliB thereafter, make
nnd file with the state banking bpard
a statement showing their avorago
dally deposits for tho preceding six
months exclusive of public money
otherwise secured, whllo section 40
provides that no bank which has com
piled In full with all the provisions of
this act shall bo required to give fur
ther security or bond for the purpose
of becoming n depository for any pub
lic funds, but depository funds shall
bo secured In the snmo manner that
private funds are secured. Theso two
sections of tho law being In direct
conflict with each other, should bo
amended so as to define moro clearly
the bunks' rights and requirements in
protecting depositors of public funds.
In this connection tho department has
nctod upon tho advlco and opinion of
tho legal department of the stato and
has required banks to lncludo all pub
lic as well as private funds in their
statements of avorago deposits.
To remedy what I consider a ser
ious dofect, ns instanced in a caso
whero a bank voluntarily liquidates,
clearly deslgntalng what shall bo
done with tho guaranty fund accumu
lated In that bank. If It is intended
that tho fund as a whole, once ac
cumulated, shall remain Intact and
inviolable, except to pay loss to do
poBltors of failed banks, tho law
should so state explicitly.
No Arrangements Yet Made.
Tho board of regente of tho stato
university has mado no definite ar
rangements for providing farm ex
ports to tnko charge of demonstration
farms whLoh may bo established in
various sections of the stato ns a re

matter 1b to bo called to tho attention
of tho board at ite meeting April 9,

tion of policy will bo mado at that

moro mooting to complete tho bill and

TESTING SEED CORN.
Good Looking Ears Are Sometimes
At ono plnco visited by tho seed
train special a dealer in grain took
pointed exceptions to tho ndvlce given
formers to got their seed from tho
small ears of their own crop, which
matured early and got out of tho way
of tho freeze, instead of sending away
for seed. The reason given wns that
Becd raised elsewhere, oven If It ger
minated, would require several years
to bocome acclimated and produce
good crops. The dealer came Into tho
car and exhibited an ear of corn
which certainly looked fine, and
wanted to know of the lecturers if
they pretended to say that was not
good seed. He was Informed that only
a test would definitely demonstrate
this, though they admitted It looked
good. They took the sample ear and
placed eighteen gralnB from It In a
germlnator, with a result that not a
slnglo kernel sprouted.
Chemist Redfern, who has been
testing considerable seed corn brought
to him, has one planting which is up
far enough to be sadly In need of
cultivating. This was placed In tho
sand bed tester. Two samples of old
corn show good germinating powers,
ono 87 per cent nnd some of 1910
seed which shows nbovo 70 per cent.
Tho 87 per cent seed, the highest yet
teBted by him, Is of the 1909 crop.
Plow Grasshoppers Under.
Prof. Swenk, associated stato ento
mologist, is out In a warning to Ne
braska farmers to look out for grass
hoppers this year. He says tho dam
ago done by grasshoppers has been
steadily increasing for several years
and that tho dry season of 1911 is es
pecially favorable for them. Ho rec
ommends early and deep plowing ub
a means of extermination. Tho eggs
are laid in pods near the surface and
he sayB If the ground is plowed deeply
before tho Insects hatch the eggs will
bo buried lo deeply tho young grass
hoppers cannot make their way to the
Burface. He particularly warns farm
ers against permitting land to go with
out plowing at nil, as under such con
ditions a big crop of grasshoppers Is

TARIFF BILLS iLT
DEMOCRATS SHAPING MATTERS
FOR EARLY ADJOURNMENT.
L MEASURE AS THE LAST
Leader Underwood Doing All He Can
to Bring Adjournment Beforo
Washington. Curtailment of the
democratic tariff revision program
with a vlow to "speeding up" congress
to permit adjournment beforo the na
tional conventions is now the ex
pressed aim of the democratic majori
ty In tho house
Republicans! and democrats Jn the
senate and house aro chafllng over de
lay In actual legislation that threat
ens to crowd congress later on. Demo
cratic Leader Underwood of the
house, chairman of the ways and
means committee, Indicated that the
wool tariff revlsloni bill, which Is to
be reported probably within ten days,
will be tho last of the revision meas
ures of this session of congress. Tho
Idea has been discussed by leaders
of both parties In both houses and
those who have conferred have ex
pressed tho view that congress was
likely to be away from Washington
before the agtherlng of the republican
clans at Chicago on June 18 and the
democrats nt Baltimore on June 25.
"I think our tariff revision bills will
end with the woolen schedule, which
we expect to report within ten days,"
said Mr. Underwood. "There is no
uso for us to go any further until we
find out what tho senate Is going to
do with tho bills already passed and
what tho president la going to do. We
havo passed' a steel bill. We shall
pass a sugar bill and then wo will
have a wool bill.
"We will have made our record In
the tariff with these schedules and I
am opposed to going any further If
the work is wasted."
"Will congress adjourn beforo the
national convention?" Mr. Underwood
"I am doing everything In my power
to bring that about and I confidently
believe that It will be accomplished.
As soon as the sugar bill Is out of
the way I may bring In the excise tax
.. "I havo not quite made up my mind
whethor to follow with immediately
after tho sugar bill Is passed, but
probably will, as J view the situation
now. If not the appropriation bills
will bo taken up. The diplomatic bill,
postofflce bill, legislative bills and
others iare all ready. These can bo
"I seeno reason why adjournment
cannot be reached before the conven
tions." The democratic program In the sen
ate is to"! stand solidly behind the
house steehblll and, in a general way,
to supportYtho democratic measures
that couio oyer from tho house.
To Prohibit Injunctions.
Washlngton-Senator Norrls Brown
of Nebraska, as chairman of the sub
committee acting for the judiciary
committee, took!j testimony and heard
arguments on hip bill to prohibit fed
eral courts from Issuing Injunctions
against stato officers charged with
the enforcement f stato statutes and
with the collection of state, county
and school taxes. Judge Ira Mills,
chairman of tho- railway commission

to tho bill will bof given an oppor
