BANK SHOWING SOON
COMPTROLLER TO CALL FOR
STATEMENTS THIS WEEK.
Showing in Response to Comptroller's
Call is Expected to Be Extremely
Favorable , and Bankers. It is Be
lieved , Will Resume Cash Payment.
A call upon the national banks for
their condition on a very recent date
is expected by the bankers to come
from the comptroller of the currency
this week. Four of the calls required
each year by law have been made ,
the last having shown the condition of
the national banks on Aug. 22. It is
possible that the call now anticipated
will have an important inlluence on
ihe financial situation. It is expected
that it will reveal large reserves of
cash in the country banks , and this
will tend to restore confidence among
depositors to a degree which will
make it easy to resume currency pay
ments throughout the country.
The banks , even in norainl times ,
usually prepare for call by strength
ening their cash in order to make a
good showing , not only to the comp
troller , but to their clients. Their
statements are required by law to be
published in a local paper , and they
are also forwarded to Washington ,
where they are compiled by cities and
The effect of a call for a report of
condition on a fixed date , which is u u-
ally ta few days before the call by the
comptroller , is to enable the bai.k
to release cash after the call with the
knowledge that another call is not
likely in the natural order of things
for about two months.
If large reserves in lawful money
in their own vaults are revealed gen
erally by the reports it will at once
inspire confidence in the strength of
the banks and create a demand which
they will no longer be disposed to re
sist , after sending their reports , for
the immediate resumption of currency

MEAXS WAR IX OHIO.
Foraker to Fight for Presidential In
Senator J. B. Foraker made it clearly -
, -ly known Friday that he will contest
the Ohio delegation to the Republican
" [ national convention with Mr. Taft.
iThis decision is contained in a letter
Uo Conrad J. Mattern , vice president of
the Ohio Republican league-who for
warded to Mr. Foraker a copy of the
resolutions adopted by the advisory
and executive committees of the
league indorsing Mr. Foraker for the
senatorship and for the presidential
nomination. He defends his course in
relation to the passage of the railroad
rate bill and insists that the necessity
of the railroads of the country to
spend millions of dollars annually in
increasing their facilities makes this
a bad time to hamper the roads in
any unnecessary way by legislation.
Senator Foraker says he is gratified
by the indorsement of the committees
at this time , because it is a fiat rebuke
to the suggestion that the office of
United States senator is to be stripped
of all real honor attached to it by
making its incumbent a mere agent to
register the decrees of somebody else.
In the course of his letter Senator For
aker says :
"I do not want to even appear to be
fl. candidate for two offices at the same
time , and therefore forego the double
honor proposed and with heartfelt ap
preciation accept the support of the
presidential candidacy which the com
mittees have so generously tendered. "

HOLDS CRISIS EXDED.
Opinion of Secretary Cortelyou Shown
The announcement by Secretary
Cortelyou that further subscriptions
to the one-yuar treasury certificates
would not be received is regarded in
Washington as indicating that th - - " -
rotary considers the crisis in t.ie
money market to be practica' y .Aer.
Official figures have not ystc ! i giv
en out at the treasury of iho amount
of the certificates allottee ! , nor has it
been stated whether further allot
ments would be made for subscrip
tions already received. The amount
of the allotments made , however , is
to be about $35,000,000. and this is
probably the limit unless strong rea
sons are presented from banks which
have already made subscriptions , why
allotments should not be made to
All individual subscriptions having
been rejected , it is anticipated that
nearly the whole of the $35,000,000
allotted will be used to secure new
issues of bank notes. As the e issues
will be retired within less than a year
they will not constitute a permanent
inflation of the bank note circulation.
The effect of the new loans upon
the future of the treasury resources
and of the money market is already
receiving attention at the treasury
and in banking circles , t From present
sources of information the amount
nominally added to the cash balance
of the treasury will be about $85.000.-
000 , of which $50,000.000 will repre
sent the 2 per cent Panama bonds
and $35.000,000 will represent the one-
yar certificates which have been al
ready allotted. This would increase
the nominal balance from about $241-
393,217 , where it stood Wednesday , tea
a little more than $325.000.000.
A small additional amount will be
received from the premium on the
Panama bonds , but even if this should
average as high as 5 per cent it would
amount to only $2.500,000.
With a nominal balance , however ,
of more than $325,000,000 the treas
ury will not have anything like that
amount immediately available. This
is because of deposits in national
banks. This amounted Wednesday to
$234,939,589 , leaving an actual work ,
ing balance of $6,463,238.
ROBBERS LOOT DEPOT.
Believed to Have Secured a Larp-
Sum at Tonopah.
At 1:30 : o'clock Thursday morning
robbers visited the freight depot of
the Tonopah , Goldfield and Bullfrog
railroad at Goldfield , Nev. , overpow
ered the watchman and blew open the
safe , securing everything of value it
contained , amounting to several thou
sand dollars. The freight depot is tin :
old passenger depot of the road , lo
cated a mile and a half from the cen
ter of the town on the bluffs north
west , distant a quarter of a mile from
the nearest dwelling.
Agent Brooks says the amount of
money stolen belonging to the rail
road was not large , but he lost all
his own money and other personal ef
fects of value , amounting to a consid
It is believed , however , that the
robbers made a big haul from the
railroad , as large amounts of money
have been taken in the past few day : ?
through the freight office , and as all
the Goldfield banks are either closed
or only paying out a limited amount
of money , the agent was carrying
quite a sum in the company's .safe ,
supposedly well guarded. Several sus
picious characters have been taken in
to custody upon suspicion of having
been connected with the robbery.

New Member of Educational Board
Starts Something Early in Career.
The next meeting of the state board
of education , which , though set for
, last week , will not be held until some

'be a rather stormy affair. Dr. Shell-

Gov. Sheldon to take the place of

' his first act as a member of the board.
Dr. Shellhorn will be asked to explain
why he wrote the letter to Miss Hud

Dr. Shellhorn wrote a letter to Miss
Hudson , dated June 27 , the day after
he was appointed a member of the
board , and in the letter he stated that
the board was about to investigate
Prof. Searson and give him a white
wash. It was not until July 23 so a
member of the board said , that tht
members knew anything about the
charges. That was the date upon
which Searson asked for an investiga
tion. Some of the board members
object to the language used in the
letter , which came out at the trial of
Searson , and the new member will bo
asked to tell why he did it. Searson

Proposition Which Lumber Men Arc
Xow Acting On.
As a result of the meeting of the
wholesale and retail lumbermen of
Omaha at the Commercial club rooms
Monday noon , a traffic bureau , with an
icxpert rate man at his head , may be
added to the already busy departments
of the Commercial club.
The lumbermen met to organize an
exchange to cope with freight rates ,
as the lumber business has now reach
ed large proportions in Omaha and
dealers are still experiencing delays
in securing shipments from six weeks
to six months. After they arrive in
the yards from a week to ten days is
required to get them to the yards of
the lumber dealers.
Discussions followed the call to or
der by J. P. White , of the Cady Lum
ber company , and it has not been de
cided whether to complete the organ
ization of an independent exchange
composed of lumber , coal and material
dealers , or secure the organization of
a traffic bureau by the Commercial
club , the expenses of which will be
largely paid by carload shippers in

The jury which heard the case
against R. Meacle Shumway at Beat

Mrs. Sarah Martin on the afternoon
of Sept. 3. Thursday afternoon found
, the defendant guilty , and recommend
ed that the court sentence Shumway
to hang. The verdict was reached af
ter the jury had been out fourteen
hours , some difficulty being experi
enced in arriving at a recommenda
tion for sentence. The crime for
which Shumway was convicted was *
one of the most atrocious ever perpe
trated in that section. Mrs. Martin
was the wife of Shumway's employer ,
who was left alone with the man while
her husband was at a primary elec
tion. The husband discovered the mu
tilated body of his wife on his return
to the farm. Shumway was missing ,
together with about $200 in cash. A
chase lasting a week failed to secure
the capture of the accused murderer ,
but after all hope of catching him
had been abandoned he was finally
captured in Missouri.
Lynching was threatened several
times after Shumway was returned to

Pleads Guilty and Only Small Jail

The center of attraction in Falls
City last week was the court house
and the trial of one colored man with
the Irish name of John O'Brien ,
charged with breaking into the store
of M. Seff. The three men who were
arrested at Atchison were to be tried
but Arthur Frenchy and M. L. Bry
ant came in and pleaded guilty to the
charge and it left O'Brien for trial.
O'Brien on the trial admitted he was
with Frenchy and Bryant the night
of the crime : came from Omaha with
them , but he says he did not know of
the robber/ until after it was done.
The jury in the case was out about six
hours and brought in a verdict of
petit larceny , stealing clothes of the
value of $19. This will give him a
jail sentence of not more than thirty
days. Arthur Frenchy and M. L.
Bryant were sentenced by Judge Ra-
per. Frenchy getting two years and a

history of the country. Steamship mei ?

There is heavy steerage travel to But
rope late in every fall for two reasons-
One is the low fares fixed by the wintejf
steamer schedules and the other is the-
winter lack of work.
The great majority of travelers con
sists of an army of laborers who come-
in the spring to engage in outdoor
work , and return when frost forces a.
suspension of operations. A great num
ber of these hail from Italy , and as a.
rule they are eiivployed in railroad con
struction and mine work. They arc-
able , during the open season , to earn
more than enough to pay their travel
ing expenses and to meet the cost of"
living during the month : ? of idleness.
This year the panic has served to
greatly increase the number of travel
ers. It is not alone the men who have-
been thrown out of work , but those that
fear a Avinter of idleness in the mills-
that swell the total. Their action will
probably have a strong effect on next
year's immigration. All the winter
they will tell their neighbors stories or
hard times in America , and that view"
of conditions here will be thoroughly
spread through Kurope. If there should'
be no pronounced depression the labor-
shortage next spring will probably be-
greater than it has been in the past
