tended for Mrs. Jenkins.
Three counts are included in each

feeling akin to a war scare through
out this country , Germany and Bel
This feeling was augmented ii
Paris by the action of La Patrle ii
publishing a long story to the effecl
that France is concentrating a large
army on the German border. It wai
allayed to some extent by the state
ment of the ministry of war , which
said the movement was solely for the
purpose of annual maneuvers.
The same spirit of unrest seems tc
tys gaining the upper hand in Ger
many. According to dispatches re
ceived here , the people of many pro

State Funds Will Be Protected.
In an opinion addressed to State
Treasurer George , Attorney General
Martin holds that banks newly apply
ing for the deposit of state funds need
not offer a surety bond as security ,
providing they are protected by the1
guaranty law , but that the banks which
have already given surety bonds for
the -protection of state funds cannot'
ipuJl down their bonds nor Is anyone
authorized to release them from such
obligations. As a result state funds
deposited in state banks will be pro
tected by surety bonds and by the
guaranty law at the , same time. The
old law required that bonds should 'be
given the state treasurer for twice the
amount of state funds deposited and
that this sum should never exceed 30
iper cent of the bank's capital stock.
The attorney general holds that this
part of the law is still in effect. State
bank ! are not required to include state
funds in their total of deposits sub
ject to assessment for bank guaranty-
Changes at Soldiers' Home. ;

der making an entire change in the
administration of the state home for

pointed W. L. Hilyard of Superior.
Captain Crawford of Lincoln , who has
been adjutant is to be succeeded by
W. H. Crites of Central City. The
matron is to be the daughter ofMr. .
Hilyard , Mrs. Mary C. Saum of Su
perior. Mrs. Walsh , the present mat
ron , was to have been succeeded by
Mrs. Downes of Lincoln , but that ar
rangement was not completed and as
a result the daughter of the new com
mandant is to be matron. Her hus
band is a millwright and will probably
make his headquarters at the home.

The board of educational lands and

Will Continue in Force.
It Is expected that Attorney Gen-
jral Martin will shortly write an
jpinion , in reply to questions from
State Treasurer George , holding that
ilthough state banks are not re-
luired to furnish depository bonds for
he security of public funds , that
here seems to be no way provided

irer and that these surety bonds will
