President Wattles of the TranemlesUslppI
Exposition a letter from Secretary of State
Olncy , relative to the l&auanco of an official
notice of the holding of the exposition in
this city In 1S9S.
Some time ago when it was discovered tha'
the bill authorizing the holding of the expo
sition did not contain an > provision. for the
notification of foreign countries. President
Wattles took the matter up with Secretary
OInej and requested pome information upon
what ho considered a propel course of. pro
coiluro. In writing to President Wattles ,
Secretary Olney suggests that when the.
proper time comes , the officers of the expo
sltlon association shall notify the Depart
ment of State , which department In turn will
formally Invlto all nations with which the
United States has diplomatic relations to
participate In the cspailtlon and place ox-
lilblts. Thosecietary writes that by follow
ing tills course , the exposition will be given
as much publicity ns though the notification
cinie through the president of the UnltoJ
States or through congress.

ImllcutloiiN of it Itnn on Any of

City IlltlTA lOVlH
Moro or less anxiety was felt Sunday
and jcstcrday by business men and others
Interested In the matter as to the effect
the closing of the Omaha Savings bank
would have on the other banks In the
city. It has been freely talked during the
past month that the national banks could
"not affonl" to allow the Omaha Savings
bank to close on account of the effect upon
other banks , consequently there was a feel
ing of uneasiness yesterday on the street
and fears wcro freely expressed that some
of the national banks might not open their
doors. Promptly at 10 o'clock , however ,
ovcry nntloi.nl bank In the city opened Its
doors and there was no Indication at any
of them of anv thing like n "run. " A Hoe
representative visited all of the national
banks Immediately aftei they had opened
and later In the day , and there was not the
slightest Indication of any excitement at
any of them. The usual number of people
wcro doing business witli these institutions ,
and there was an air of calmness and solidity
about all of them that went a long way
toward ollajtng any fear of excitement.
Interviews were had with the president * or
cashiers of each of the national banks anil
each and all reported business In Its nor
mal condition. At only one bank had there
been any rrsh which could bo traced even
remotely to the closing of the Omaha Savings
bank. In tills single Instance huslnefti
had be3n accelerated slightly Saturday , but
none of the effects wcro felt jesterday
and there were no heavy withdrawals
at nny time. Several of the banks reporter
heavier bupincsa In deposits on Saturdaj
than ordinary , and meat of them expressed
the opinion that the only effects of the clos
ing of the Omaha Savings would be to In
crease tlc deposits of the national banks.
One banker said1
"The Omaha Savings was conducted hon
estly and Intelligently and its securities
nro good , but they are a class of securities
national banks are prohibited from touching
and that was the reason the national banks
In the dealing house could not take these
recmitlcs off the hands of the savings bank
people. I am ot the opinion that the failure
Is directly due to the result of the last elec
tion In this state. Eastern people arc
afraid of our real estate securities aftci
seeing how Nebraska went In the election ,
and the savings bank could not place Its
securities. With Ita deposits tied up In
this way , and no way of disposing of them
It could not mrct the demands of Its de
positors for their money. "
Another banker rcmaikcd : "This thing Is
another proof that what this country wants
nnd must have Is a jiestal savlngn bank
sj stem The savings Ixink basinets Is ef
fectually killed In this town for the next
ten veare , and the only thing that i cumins
Is for the government to take hold of the
bavings bank business. "

The stockholders of the Omaha Savings
bank , which failed on last Saturday , held
a conference jestcrday to decide upon future
action , The meeting was a protracted one.
It convened at 10 o'clock In the morning ,
adjourned nt noon and reconvened again
early In the afternoon. It was shortly ad
journed again in order to allow Senator
Mandcrcon and Dank Examiner Dodder to
catch the 2 30 train fcr Lincoln.
It Is stated that the stockholders prac
tically decided to give a bond to the State
lianklng board that the affairs of the defunct
Institution could be wound up by tbo bank
olllclals This plan was deemed more eco
nomical and better than that providing for a
receiver. The bond must be of bufflclent
size to protect all the depositors and must be
approved by the state board. It was slated ,
however , that the meeting did not actual ! )
dccido upon this plan , but adjourned for
thu purposa of getting more information ,
that being tbo object of Senator Mandcr-
son's visit to Lincoln.
Senator Manderson Is expected to return
this morning and Is to report at once to the
stockholders. Definite action will then be

The public Is to bo treated once more to a
recital of the marital woes of the Catnlday
family. About the first of last > car Frank
O. Casslday applied for a divorce from his
wife , Carrie T. Casslday , alleging cruelty
Ills petition recited a tale of woo In all
Its horrible details , showing how his wife
had made life a burden by continual bicker
ing and quarreling , and how ulie had threat
ened Iris life with a pistol. Casslday and
the wife's sister went before Judge Powell
and told the same story as was recited In
the petition , with moro details along the
same Una. They represented that the wife
had been notified , but would not contest the
caro. A decree was entered , but shortly
afterward the wife heard of It and entcied a
protest , asking that eho bo given the di
vorce. She called on the judge and told a
different storj and the decree was set aside
and another hearing ordered.
rho hearing was had with all the parties
In court ; a divorce was dcniled to both par-
tics and the case was thrown out of court.
Casslday was not entirely disheartened
by his failure to obtain a legal separation
from his wife , nnd i.ov , ho has filed another
petition for a divorce.

The First Shirt
The social season in Omaha is now open , also the shirt
season. Shirts hive always cut more or less of a figura
in the social season and socials undoubtedly affect tha
shirt season to a considerable extent. It isn't so long
since a nice bilcd sh'rt was considered a passport to so
ciety but the swell set require other credentials sinca
The Nebraska got to selling the best Dress Shirts fop
$1.10. Of course people who think themselves way up
don't buy the r dress shirts at The Nebraska. They go
somewhere else and pay $2.00 or 2.50 for them and have
"em charged. The Nebraska Shirts are never charged.
\Ve buy 'cm right and we pay for 'em when we bu
'em. We sell "em right and we get paid for 'cm
when we sell 'em. That's one of the reasons why we can
sell you the best white shirt in the world for $1.10 and
the regular $1.25 Shirt for Sc and the regular $1.00
Shirt for 750. It isn't much of a trick to sell Shirts
cheaper when we buy 'em cheaper , but it's a good do a
of a trick to convince folks who don't know us that they
arc not cheaper Shirts. We have convinced //totisatirfs.
The way we convinced them was to sell them the first
