A MALICIOUS LIAR.
The motion for a change of venue
was filed late Saturday evening by
Mr. Gering and alleges that owing
to the bias and prejudice existing in
the county, and the number of mur
ders which has taken place it would
be impossible for Ossenkop to get
a fair and impartial trial. This mo
tion id supported by thirteen affi
davits headed by Mr. Gering's which
in addition to reciting the state
ments of the motion attaches and
makes a of his affidavit, articles
clipped from the World-Herald and
the Lincoln Star detailing at length
the several affrays which have
taken place in the county since
last September. An additional affi
davit which is depending upon to
have weight with the court is that
of A. L. Tidd who states that dur
ing his candidacy for county attor
ney last fall he visited many people
and talked with them that he con
siders that such bias and prejudice
exists as would prevent the defend
ant having a fair trial. -Journal.
The above item appeared in the
I'lattsmouth Journal of February 1.
The portion which refers to myself is a
malicious lie. My affidavit says there
was much prejudice and bitter feeling
againt Oflscnkop, and a strong belief
that he is guilty. There is no opinion
expressed as to whether or not he
might have a fair trial. The Journal
wilfully and maliciously lied.

The Journal seems to have a severe
attack of gopherphobia. Our doctors
should give this matter prompt study.

SAFE AND SANE BANKING LAW
"On October 21, 1907, in the confus
ion and dismay of panic week, Governor j
Hughes apjointed, as Superintendent
of the State Banking Department, Mr.
Clark Williams, the young vice-presi
dent of one of the newer trust compan
ies of New York City. Mr. Williams
has now made his annual report cover
ing the notable year of wise banking
reform, which has brought the State
laws aad regulations governing banks
to a perfection that makes them a
model for other commonwealths. A very
large part of the credit for this achiev
ment is due to the quiet and indefati
gable Superintendent. That the result
is of more than local importance is
shown in the one fact that banks organ
ized under the State of New York have
one-fifth of the entire banking resources
of the Union. Of the twenty bills
suggested by Superintendent Williams
and passed by the legislature, some of
the most important are those increas
ing the le?al reserve for State banks in
Manhattan from 15 to 25 per cent., and
requiring that the trust companies
carry all of their 15 per cent in reserve
in cash. State banks are prohibited
from owning more than 10 per cent of
the capitial stock of other banks, thus
effectually preventing the "'chain-bank
ing" methods which did so much to
make the unstable situation of October
1907. The department has, moreover,
inaugurated an ingenious and thorough
method of credit reporting, by which
large borrowers of every bank are
reported by the examiners to the
New fork office for card indexing, ex
amination, and comparison, a method
which will make it more difficult for
rash financiers to get dangerously
"spread out" to the detriment of lend
ing institutions. One of the most
grateful reforms of the year is the
vesting of bank receivership control, in
the state depatment, instead of receiver
appointed by the court, -an arrange
mentwhich hnd resulted in a situation
little less than scandalous. In the one
failing institution Superintendent Wil
liams was called on to handle, the
Home Bank of Brooklyn, -the salary
cost was $056 and the term of receiver
ship forty-two days. In nine other
receiverships last year, handled under
the old method, the fees ranged from
$20,500 to $80,000 and the term from
five to seven months." Review of

Congressman Pollard Defines His
Position on Important Matter
of Forest Work.
Secretary Whitten has received a
long letter from Congressman E. M.
Pollard telling why he has opposed cer
tain bills appropriating money for for
est reserve work.
His reason is that
t t t r y r
bills opposed have uniformly provided
for the appropriation of moneys with
out restriction as to their use or man
ner of expenditure in this work. The
congressman points out that fifteen or
twenty years ago many northern capit
alists went south and purchased large
tracts of land for the hardwood timber
to be found thereon. They paid from
ten cents to one uollar an acre for
large tracts of this land. They remov
ed the timber making great sums over
and above the cost of the land in clear
profits, and now that the timber has
been removed they desire to sell the
land to the government at prices rang
ing from two hundred to three hundred
per cent above the original cost. He
opposes appropriations that will make
this possible. 'He declares that owners
of such lands have hired experts to go
about the country to work up sentiment,
and that this sentiment ha9 been corn
batted by the committee on agriculture
ever since he has been a number of it.
Congressman Pollard declares the
committee on agriculture is in favor of
some action hy the government which
will conaerve our forest resources and
that such a bill will come shortly and
and be approved by the committee.
The committee has had some difficulty
in the past in getting together on de
tails in this matter But Mr. Pollard is
sure that the scheme can be worked on
in a way that will protect the public
interests in every way.
Discussing the matter and the way in
which sentiment has been worked up
for bills that have come before the com
mittee Mr. Pollard speaks plainly and
intimates that the Commerical club has
not heard all there is to hear on the
subject. -State Journal.
We shall make a prediction, if Mr.
Bryan's bank gurantee law is passed
by the legislature, that I'lattsmouth
will have three national banks.

How to meet the competition of the

local dealers can afford to give some
attention. We would suggest to the
local dealers to procure a recent copy
of one of these catalogues. Study it so
far as it pertains to your line of goods.

Growth ol Churches
Dr. H. K. Carroll, of New York,
gives the following statistics of the
leading churches of the United States.
The gain in 1908 was smaller than in
1907. The protestant gains were 571,
443 in 1907 and 421,804 last year, a drop
of nearly a third. The Roman Catholics
increased 298,813 last year. Despite
the church union movement the number
of denominations continue to grow.
There are 155 now as compared with
143 nineteen years ago, six new ones
being born last year. Among these is
a dissenting Christian science church
I which cleaves to the doctrine of divine
healing, but denies that Mrs. Eddy has
any special revelation in connection
therewith. The largest single denomin
ations, according to Dr. Carrol are the

OLDHAM WANTS TO BE JUDGE.
W. D. Oldham of Kearney, who was
appointed by Governor Shallenberger
to take the place offered to Judge Hol
comb on the supreme bench, asked
leve of the supreme court yesterday'
to file a suit in that court to test his j
right to the office to which he has been
appointed. Alleging that the act of
1877 which gave the legislature power ,
to canvass the vote on constitutional
amendments, Mr. Oldham claims he is ;
the rightful holder of the oflice and not i
James R. Dean of Broken Bow, who
was appointed by Governor Sheldon fol
lowing the canvass of the vote by the
canvassing board, which body is by law
required to receive returns from the
various counties. Mr. Oldham alleges a
that all of the laws passed siuce 1S77
which were intended to give the state
canvassing board power to canvass
amendments are null and void.
The motion for leave to file and docket
was fded yesterday with the court by
Joel W. West of Omaha, attorney for
Mr. Oldham. It was accompanied by a
waiver of Oldham's right to file the
suit in district court. Judge Dean bad
not filed a similar waiver last night and
the court will not pass on the motion
for leave to file a waiver, if it is nec

that his action will not delay the case

others and are advanced by a rule of
The complainant, by waiving his
right to begin suit in the district court,
