Hunk Examination Chnruo * .
ATTOUNKY GKNUIUI.'S OrrioB , LINCOLN ,
Neb , Sept. 7 , 1SSO. Mr. E. A. Wiggonhorn ,
Ashland , Neb.-My Dear Sir ; In answer to
Jour Jotter of yuatorday , relating to the
charge $30 made by the bank examiner for
each examination , I will say that under the
lavy of 1SSB , the auditor , treasurer and attor
ney eoneral , have been denlgnatod to appoint
ultablo persona to examine the various
banks In the B tat o ; certain duties are as.
If ned tUesa examiner * ; they uiust visit each
bank and make a'report In full detail , giving
the condition of each bank to the auditor.
They pixy thnlr own expenses in going nnd
returning , nnd ns the law provide ? that their
compensation for such examination shall bo at
the rnto of $10 for each day employed in such
examination , thnt nny Blnglo examination
should not exceed $20 , and that no person
should bo required to pay for more than ono
examination ; the three stnto officers above
mentioned have fixed the fco to bo charged
for c.icli examination nt $20.
Thcro nro nt present llvo hundred banks
in the stnto , nnd thrco examiners hnva been
appointed to do the wont , nnd wo llnd from
the time actually employed nnd the expenses
Incurred thnt $ JO is not unreasonable ; In
cluding the time spent In going to nnd re
turning ; from the bunk , Inking into consider
ation also Iho time spent In preparing Iho
detailed report , moro than ono day Is con
sumed in each examination.
The conclusions show that in some In
stances the time actually employed in mak
ing ono examination has tukun four days ,
nnd in other Instances the expenses Incurred
In making on examination ot ono bank have
exceeded 50.
The $30 fco charged docs not RO to the ox-
nminor , but only $10 for each day employed
by him In making thu examination ; ihe bal-
unco , if any , goes lo pay the expenses of the
examiner. H may bo that the j-0 fco pays
the examiner for two days' survives , nnd in
thai event his expenses must bo paid from
the aggregate fees remaining on hand ; nt
the ( Mitl of iho ycur the oxiimlnor manes a de-
lulled report of the number of days employed ,
the amount of his expanses Incurred nnd the
amount of foes thnt ho has received. The
thrco Btnto o Ulcers examine his report , ntut
from the gross amount received ho Is allowed
Sll ) for each day employed , not exceeding
$2,000 ; his expenses incurred nro thun al
lowed , nnd If n balance remains , it is paid
Into the state treasury.
I do not BOO how the examiner's ' expenses
could bo paid , if only S10 wore charged , as
the examiner is entitled to thnt much per
( fay.
In iho MSO nbovo given where the cxatn-
Incr hns been employed four ( Jays , ho is al-
lowpd ? 40 , but only a S-0 fog can bo chnrged
tbo bunk ; it may happen thai moro than ono
cxmnin.iuon must ba made during the .vo.ir ;
the examiner will receive his compensation ,
nlihough the bunk Is not required to puy a
second examination. I cannot nt this tlmo
say that the foe wo hav ? fixed Is too much ,
but from the best Information I can get I
think It 1.1 not
If , nt the end of the year , the fco charged
Is found to bo such that n balance is on hand
to go Into tbo alula ircasury , ihon wo can reduce -
duce the fee , but I do not at this tlmo think
it advisable to do so.
This Is thd coustructlon placed upon the
net by Iho state onlccrs , nnd I mn inclined to
think it Is norrocL Yours very truly ,

Visitors to the Coliseum call again

ho almost regal display of Kdholin &
Mtin , jewelers nnd watchmakers , cor-
icr of Fifteenth und Dodge streets. In
ho front of the exhibit tire show cases
illod with diamonds , watches and rare
irnamonts. There are crown jewels from
ho French crown. There can bo seen a
radiant buttcrlly ornament for the hair ,
tu tided thickly with diamondsand cost-
up $1,000. This particular ornament
ins boon selected as a wedding present
, o ono of Omaha's fairest daughters ,
soon to .bo married. There are scores
of other magnificent ornaments. But
ono cannot forbear mentioning u boau-
iful breastpin or brooch sot
vith diamonds of every known color.
lhis ? is tin extremely rare and beauti-
ul ornament , perhaps the only ono of its
cind in the United. States. There are
, ho chatelaine watches which are hung

Ono of the most successful hardware
merchants of the city has n massive dis
play at the Coliseum. This exhibit , like
the mountains , commands attention for
its solidity and usefulness rather than
for its artistic array or adornment.
These massive ranges and handsome
heaters would attract attention in any
exhibit. Their exhibit of splendid
wrought iron ranges and high grade
cook stoves formed n feature of the ex
position and attracted any amount of
attention. Tholr street display on
Merchant's day was a grand success.1
These glittering ranges and celebrated
Round Oak heaters speak for them
selves. The citizens of Omaha have
learned to know that W. F. Stootzol's

How ( ( > lil AVnH Klrwt Discovered nt
lIHuna.
The circumstances attending the birth
of Helena are interesting. Four young
minors whose names are not associated
with the city's later history , in May ,
1801 , we're wandering along the main
range prospecting , says a Helena loiter.
They hud been unable to obtain claims
in Alder gulch , and tholr objective
point , in case they should full to strike
a rich Hold of their own , was Kootsual ,
in British Columbia , where common re
port located valuable diggings. They
camped one night In tho. gulch where
Helena stands to-day , but though they
found "color" they were not particular
ly pleased. They doubted if gold was
there in anything like paying quanti
ties. They pushed ahead , therefore ,
crossed the range , and hud gouo as
many as thirty miles northward whoa
they encountered a man who dispelled
their dreams of Kootsual. He said the
good claims were all gone , and the best
of thorn were poor , anyhow. This
news was a great : lit.conrtigement . to
the party. They had a rather
dismal council , and concluded that
the gulch they had lately loft was tholr
only hopo. Accordingly , the next
morning they turned around and cuiuo
back to the spot upon which they had
previously oncamncd. They grimly
named the valley''Last Chance Gulch1
and Last Chaoco Gulch it is to-day.
They sank two holes to bedrock , and
their hearts leaped high when they
counted & 1.GO in the if first pan. Each
of these four ad venturers made a fortune
from his claimund soon a big camp was
drawn together. Ono of the minors
who had been imprussod with the fasci
nations of Homer's heroine gallantly
urged the name of Helena as most ap
propriate for the numo of the now city ,
and Hole mi it became.
It stands to-day in the bottoms where
the Last Chance pilgrims made tholr
first discoveries. A more absurd and
yet moro picturesque situation would DO
difficult to fancy. Its chief business
thoroughfare lies directly in the bottom
of the Last Chance Gulch , at the fur
ther end of which the patient China
man is still washing out his pan of dirt
and realizing a fortune larger thun in
his own country ho "hud over dreamed
of achieving. Thirty millions were
taken from Last Chance Gulch before it
I
was abandoned to merchants and shop-
I keepers , nnd oven now the builder of
' a now house can find laborers willing to
dig liin collar for the dirt they take
from it.
