REPRESENTATIVES OF ALL BUT
TWO BANKS HERE TO PER
ENJOYED A FINE BANQUET
Officers Selected and Fine Address
by H. K. Frantz of Eagle

From Friday's Dally.
Last evening the representatives
of the banking interests of Cass
county met at the Hotel Wagner to
perfect the organization of a coun
ty bankers' association to co-operate
with the stat" organization in safe
guarding the interests of the banks
and their depositors in the unsettled
condition that is prevailing through
out the nation and state. The meet
ing was held in the spacious dining
room of the hotel, where the ban
quet table was spread and the splen
did dinner served prior to the meet
ing of the association was one very
much enjoyed and which placed the
members of the party in trim for the
work of the evening.
The principal address of the even
ing was delivered by H. K. Frantz,
of Eale, president of the state as
sociation, who pointed out to the
bankers of the county the necessity
of organization to protect themselves
and the interests of their patrons
from many of the dangers that now
exist and particularly in the sale of
worthless stocks to the bunk deposi
tors and the public which result in
the loss of much money to the per
sons purchasing them, and also
touched on the fact that many of
tltese new and unknown stocks with
out any guarantee of their paying
qualities are sold and exchanged to
innocent persons in exchange for thv?
valuable government securities that
have been saved by the -people of
the country during the war times.
The co-operation of the bankers of
the state with the state authorities
in the enforcement of the blue sky
law was also urged by Mr. Frantz.
The fostering of the spirit of thrift
among the people of the state and
county was al?o urged upon the as
sembled bankers by the state presi
dent. The formation of the county as
sociation was completed by the elec
tion of oftcers and the following

mouth. Vice-Chairman. C. S. Aldrich. of
Secretary-Treasurer, C. E. Butler,

A number of the bankers present
gave a few remarks on the needs of
the bankers for co-operation in their
work for the interest of the patrons
of the banks as well as their busi
ness interests, which proved very in
teresting and valuable to the mem
bers of the association.

organization meeting represented all
but two of the banks of the count
and the representatives of these two
banks were unable to be at the
meeting owing to the fact that they

WILD MAN FROM
UNION IS JAILED
Strange Greek, Who Has Been Creat
ing: a Great Deal of Excitement in
Vicinity of Union Now In Jail.
The county jail has within its
walls a real wild man who in his ap
pearance bears a resemblance not
unlike Robinson Crusoe after his
years of life on a desert isle. The
ma nnas only tne remnants ui
what were once clothes and his per
sonal appearance is disguised by an
extensive coating of dirt as he has
evidently steered clear of all bath
ing for many moons, ine man is a
Greek and can speak only very little
English so that conversation with
him was decidedly difficult and it
was necessary to secure the services
of George Conis to get any kind of
an understanding from the man.
The stranger has for several days
been lirking in the country east of
Union where the wooded sections
and the bluffs along the Missouri
river were his favorite haunts and
here he has been staying, coming
forth once in a while to try and se
cure .something to eat from the
neighboring farm houses. The man
came to a number of the places along
the stretch of country near the
river and his appearance created a
great scare among the women resid
ing in that locality as the man
could not make himself understood
and his general tattered appearance
gave him a decidedly poor impres-
sion with the natives of east Liber -
ty. At several places where he at-j
tempted to secure food he was told
to go away and this seemed to anger
him as he kicked and beat on the
doors of a number of the farm
houses and thereby frightened the
women at the houses he visited. A
searching party was organized and
scoured the woods and hills of the
eastern portion of Liberty precinct ,
and the man was finally rounded up '
near the Clarence farm. He wasager cf this splendid city of 10.000
bruoght on into Plattsmouth and
turned over to the county to be car
The man is apparently harmless
but his general appearance is
enough to frighten most anyone if
they met him alone. He states that
he has been in this country only a
short time and was for several weeks
employed in the western part of the
state and disliking the place quit
and started out to travel and picked
out Union as a good place to light
but apparently made a bad choice as
he has been having great difficulty
in securing even enough to eat.
The ftraneer is resting at the
county jail and will be given suit
able clothes and a general delousing
process before his' case is given any
ENJOYS BIG TIME.
From Friday's Dally.
Last evening some twelve of the
young ladies of the city enjoyed a .
real delightful treat in a picnic j
party at the Wiles farm west of the
city and the occasion proved c,ne ;
that they will long very pleasantly j
remember. The members of the
party spent the late afternoon in
preparing a sumptuous "feed" with
roasted . weinies as the chief feature
and topped off with a number of
appetizing dishes that the ladies had
thoughtfully brought with them.
After completing the enjoyment of
the feast the party came into the
fcity and spent a short time in taking
in the movies at the Parmele and to
complete the evening of wild hilar
ity enjoyed some of the dainty and
toothsome refreshments served by
the Morgan sweet shop.

for years and embraced members of.
the Grand Army from all sections of'
the United States. The city held
something like 123,000 visitors 'for

open to the veterans and their fam

From Thursday s Daily.
The Red Sox base ball tram of
this city which was entered in the

I which opens in that city tomorrow
morning, will not be able to fill the

J employed in the Burlington shops
are unable to get aa uom mm
duties to play ball on the three
days of the tournament. This has
been a great disappointment to the
members of the Sox team as well as
to the Greenwood f ana" who had ex
pected to have' the Sox with them
on this date and will make neces
sary the substitution of some other
Meani in the tournament. The Red
Sox have arranged a game here
Sunday with the Louisville team in
view of the fact that they will not
be able to play in the tournament
and will therefore give an exhibi
tion of the national pastime here for
