Dill Will Probably Be Drawn by
Monetary Commission Along
Lines of Taft's Views.
Washington The coming congress
must meet a situation born of the
panic of 1907, when the Issue of clear
ing house certificates by the govern
ment to supply sufficient currency to
meet the demands of the business In
terests of the country was necessary.
The temporary legislation enacted
during that critical period must ho
cither supplanted or re-enacted Into
permanent law, and foremost among
the various projects that have been
advanced as n proper solution of the
government's problem stands t lie pro
posed national central bank.
It Is the common belief that It will
form the basis of the curative legisla
tion to be recommended by the mone
tary commission and President Taft
In his recent lloston speech signified
his own favorable disposition toward
the project.
"A bank of the people and for tho
people" Is the definition of this Insti
tutlon made by Georgo M. Reynolds,
president of tho American Hankers'
association, in his Chicago speech. 1 lo
pointed out that lite people were to
lie tho stockholders, for anyone would
be privileged to buy tho bank stock
Just as he might n government bond
A small Interest on such an Invest'
inent would be guaranteed by the gov
eminent. Any other earnings more
than sufficient to pay the guarantcec'l
interest would be shared by the gov
eminent and by the stockholders.
Political control of the great bank
would be made at least extremely dif
Moult by the life appointment of the
officers. Integrity of operation would
be assured by a board of supervisors
appointed by the president, the secre
tary of the treasury and the comptrol
ler of the currency (subject to the ap
proval of the Benate) for alternate
terms of at least eight years to bridge
over political mutations.
Thus would be met the objections
founded upon the history of tho old
United States bank, that tho Central
bank might be prostituted to political
use and be made au engine for tho
perpetuntion in power of one party.
It is not intended that the Central
bank should support the credit of the
nation. If the national government
needs funds, If it spends more money
than It collects by taxation, it must
continue in tho old way to borrow
from the world-at-large by the sale of
The single purpose of this projected
bank would be to safeguard the busi
ness interest of the people in their
private relations. If there were need
for more money for business purposes
the bank would supply it by notes and
If there were a plethora, in dull
times these notes would be retired

To Dissolve Merger.

Commercial Clubs Has Surplus.
A surplus of nearly $3,000 In the
treasury of the Lincoln Commercial
club was shown by the annual cash
statement of Secretary Whittcn laid
before the directors. Three years
ago the organization was struggling
along under serious handicap for lack
of funds. At one time it was neces
sary for some of the leading members
to give their personal notes at a bank
for $1,500 to pay the current expenses
of the club. During the last year the
general fund has been swelled about
$2,73o. Contributions to the conven
tion fund made during the last year
aggregated in the neighborhood of
$7,000. Some firms which derive di
rect benefit from conventions held

this fund, but it is hoped to secure
them, as well as others which indi
rectly profit from the gatherings held
in Lincoln.

a strike, boycott, embargo or whatever
It. may be called against Lincoln

propositions. For this reason it
probable no more paving will be done
this fall other than what has bew
contracted for.

Various Irregularities in Obtaining
because of various irregularities in
obtaining naturalization papers, six
teen Nebraska residents of differeut
nationalities will probably have to go
through the process of being made
citizen a second time. Papers have
been completed in the office of United
States Attorney A. W. Lsne for filing
in the federal court attacking the
validity of theirertifleates. Most of
those whose citizenship is thus called
into question live at Omaha aud
South Omaha, but others are scattered
over the state. The list includes Ger
mans, Iloheniians, Scandinavians, -
Italians, an Irishman or two and oth
ers or miscellaneous nainuy.
Tho stilts to have the decrees of
naturalization set aside will be com
menced in the districts where the
persons respectively live. Only two
of the number will be filed in the
Lincoln division. In some cases It
will be alleged that the Individual was
naturalized illegally before he had
been in this country live years. An
other ground will be that some of
them were more than 18 years old on
arriving in this country and did not
make a formal declaration of their In
tention to become citizens, which is
required of all except those coming
here as minors. In one or two in
stances the claim will be made that
the certificate Is defective because
witnesses for the person naturalized
were nut themselves citizens.
About Bank Assessments.
In reply to a recent inquiry Henry
Seymour, secretary of the state board
of assessment nnd equalization, has
written Hie following statement of
how state, national and savings banks
are assessed:
"State, national and savings banks,
domestic and foreign, are assessed
upon the value of their capital stock,
nnd taxes are levied upon a per cent
basis, the same as all other property
in tills state is taxed. The -value of
the stock is found by taking the mar
ket value of the same, together with
the surplus and undivided profits,
from which is deducted the real es
tate and other tangible property oC
the bank, which is assessed separate
ly. The names of the stockholders
and the amount owned by each are
listed by the bank, but the tax is
levied against and. paid by the bank.
Trust companies are nssessed the
same as banks. Building and loan
associations are assessed only on
their real estate, but the shares of
the stock In the same are held to be
credits, and are assessed to tho own
ers and the members of the associa
tion. Deposits In savings banks as
well as all other banks are listed
and assessed to the depositors. Tho
rate of taxation varies In the several
taxing districts of the state because
of difference in the amount of the
levy for local taxation."
Dundy Survey Must Wait.
Notwithstanding a petition from
Dundy county landowners the state
land commissioner will not carry out
the provisions of the act of the last
legislature for a resurvey of a north
nnd south line through Dundy county
uutil the government Is given an op
portunity to comply with an act of
congress Introduced by Congressman
Norris. Py a little more delay the
county of Dundy may get a more ex
tensive resurvey from the general
government and the state may bo
able to save the funds appropriated
by the legislature for a lesser resur
vey. The act of congress calls for a re
survey of the disputed line nnd also
a resurvey of several townships lu
Dundy county. Congressman Norris
thought he was doing a favor to the
people of Dundy county when he got
this act passed and he Is much sur
prised now to find that many resi
dents of tho townships interested
have signed a petition to proceed with
tho proposed state resurvey of the
north nnd south line. He thinks the
people Interested do not fully under
stand the situation or they would not
have signed the petition to proceed
with the proposed state resurvey of
only- ono line. Tho legislature ap
propriated $325 to resurvey one line.
This amount will not be sufficient to
pay for the work.
