Does It fisree With the Con stitution, Case to ba Heard Here Next Wednesday In Alvo a few day since a person was arraigned for -being in an intoxi cated condition, and while being tried Alfred Hanson, a listener to the pro ceedings, made some remark in the presence of the court, arid during the proceedings of the trial. When asked to be quiet, there arose a disagree ment between them, which resulted in the fining of Mr. Hanson the sum of $5,00 and coats, which was paid and he released. After, whether for another or the same offense we do no know, this man Hanson was arrested and as sessed a fine of twenty dollars and costs and a jail sentence of 10 days for comtempt of of court by the same justice of the peace, D.M. Prouty. For this he was sent to this place to serve the time. When he arrived here Habeas corpus preceedings has been instituted, a bond given and the hear ing set for February 5th, which will he be before Judge H. D. Travis, in chambers . j A special from Washington, in speak ing of the Aldrich currency bill, says: Containing important changes and rounded out into the form in which it is expected to be enacted, the Aldrich emergency currency hill has been favor ably reported to the Senate by the unan imous vote of the republican members of the senate committee on finance. The most important change is in the first section. The bill now provides that any national banking association having circulating notes outstanding to an amount not less than 50 per cent of its capital stock may apply to the comp troller of the currency to issue additional circulating notes to be secured by the deposit of bonds other than bonds of the United States. As the bill now stands the comptroller of the currency shall transmit immedi ately the application, with his recom mendation, to the secretary of the treasury. The secretary shall, in his judgment of business conditions in the localities demanded additional circula thfi annlication and de- termine the time of issue and fix the amount within the limitations imposed by succeeding sections of the act, of the additional circulating notes to be is sued. Then comes the provision for dis tribution by states. This is put in to meet the demands of western centers. For An Equitable Distribution. The bill provides that in order to dis tribute the notes equitably the secretary -of the treasury shall not appiove appli cations from associations in any state in excess of the amount to which such state would be entitled on the basis of the xroposition which the unimpaired capital and surplus of the national bank ing association in each state hears to the total amount of unimpaired capital and surplus of the national banking as sociations of the United States. The bill then describes the bonds to be accepted as security for the circulation, and instead of limiting the issue upon all bonds to 75 per cent of their market value, authorizes the necrelary of the the treasury to issue to national banks up to 75 per cent of the market value of any railroad bonds and 90 per cent of the market value of any other bonds, such market to be ascertained and de termined under the direction of the sec retary of the treasury. Five hundred million dollars, instead of 250 million dollars, is named as the maximum of such notes to be issued. Instead of re quiring cities and counties, whose bonds are to be accepted, to have a population of 20,000, the bill now provides that the treasurer of the United States "shall" the word is substituted for "may" accept as security bonds issued by any city, town, county or legally constituted municipality or district in the United States which has been in existence ten years, and for which ten years has not defaulted upon the principal or interest of any debt. This would include all of the bonds of St. Louis and the issue of bridge and asylum bonds recently ad vertised. It includes townships and school districts and practically every" form of public obligation. Must Examine the Bonds. Under the bill it shall be the duty of the secretary of the treasury tr obtain information with reference to the value and character of the municipal raiirosid securities authorized to he accepted and he shall from time to time furnish in formation to national bank associations, as to such bonds as may be received an securities under the :'ct. The l-evised bill doe? not change th" interest rate on the emergency curr-i:cy and it remains one half of one per cent a month or 6 per cent a year. When thefinance committee acts tomorrow Senator Bailey will give notice thn.t democratic substitute i.- to be o'lVie This primarily will declare for direc issues by the government imueua oi bank issue of the emergency notes. Other matters may be included in the democratic bill, if an agreement upon the respective propositions advanced is reached among the democratic senators. Mrs. Sol Adamson Some Better. Mrs. S.H. II. Cox, of Shenandoah, la.-, came in this afternoon on the fast mail nnri will assist in the nursing of her daughter, Mrs. Sol Adamson, who has been sick for some time past with a very severe and acute attack of ap pendicitis.
