WASHINGTON, Sept 26.-E1US H. Rob
erts, treasurer of the United States, who
ta attending the Joint convention of the
Bankers' association, which Is being held
on board a steamboat on the Potomac
liver tonight, delivered an address before
the convention. He said In part:
Current financial discussion deals In
much the larger part with national bank
notes. They constitute lees than one
slxili of our stock of money, $41S,!y?,7i out
of r.'.708.63,63, and no legislation can
change that ratio very materially. Oold,

Again, look at the treasury holdings. The
gold there Is todny the lurgest sum ever
recorded, Ii53,u(iO,0). Our treasury holds
three and nine-tenths time the amount
of gold belonging to the Bank of England,
which Is $lW,!io,0u0; It la more than three
and eight-tenths times that of the Im
perial Oerman bank, which Is $170,371,000;
very noarly three times that of the Ausiro
Hungary bank, which is $i!l,4(H,000; it lacks
only tS.ooo.PoO of being enual to that of
both the JiiTnks of Enpland and of France,
which latter holds tm,6;,nu0. and It ex

Belgium and The Netherlands combined.

Secretary Shavr Talks.
NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Sept. 25.-The
Bankers' association of Maryland and cf
the District of Columbia, which Is holding
Its annual convention on a steamer on the
Potomac .river, visited the ship yard and
other points of Interest here and later went
Among the speakers on the steamer were
Secretary of the Treasury Shaw, the comp
troller of the currency, William Rldgely,
and Ellis Roberts, treasurer of the United
States. On the way down from Washing
ton on Thursday night Secretary Shaw
made a speech, In which he took a decidedly
optimistic view of business prospects of
the country. The secretary said that we
must Issue more than bonds as a basis of
circulation or avoid some circulation.
Speaking of the function of a bank, he
said Its success should not be measured by
its dividends, but by Its solvency and con
servatism. Its reserves, in ms opinion.
should be available for use in times of
emergency and were not intended to be
burled and never touched. The recent de
posits of public moneys and offers to redeem
bonds had not been made, ha went on, with
any expectation of aiding the stock market.
but solely to assure the business men of
the country there would be no money
famine this autumn. He said:
Go horn and tell your merchants and
manufacturers and railroad people that you
are still doing business at the old stand
and expect to remain. Stand by the busi
ness and all will be well. The prosperity
of the American people Is not measured
by the price of stocks and bonds, but by
the output of our farms and factorlea and
the profitable employment of labor.

have the good fortune to be placed In the
field. Mr. Burbank Inferred that the edi
torial was not in good faith on the eve
of the harmony meeting. He read tho edi
torial and wondered if It was a rabbit
trap and asked the editor of The Bee to
explain whether or not he Intended to
scratch any name he pleased after they
were placed In the field.
Senator Millard before Introducing Mayor
Moores said he had Mr. Rosewater's word
a few hours before that he would support
the ticket and he was willing to rely on It,
and the crowd applauded vigorously.
Moores Will Support Ticket.
Mayor Moores received a great ovation.
He said he was In bad health and could
not make a long talk, but succeeded In
saying some things that made a hit. "I
am totally In favor of that great and glori
ous state harmony," he snld. "Only It
would have pleased me better If harmony
had descended upon us last spring. How
ever, I am ready to bury the hatchet and
support any republican nominated, no mat
ter how much sugar I will have to use to
get down the pill."
The "hand" that was accorded A. W.
Jeflerls apparently encouraged him, as he
launched forth In what was justly termed
later an eloquent speech, dwelling consider
ably upon the principles and glory of the
party and finally working his way down to
a lusty advocacy of the new primary rules,
which, he said, would give the rank and file
a chance. He counseled that Blate making
be abandoned and to let the people make
their choice, and this sentiment brought
W. J. Connell, who was one of the victims
of the lack of harmony last spring, when
he failed of election as city t.ttorney,
pointed to himself as an example of what
discord had done. He spoke for a spirit of
get together, called John L. Webster the
next presiding officer of the United Statea
senate and declared for the republican
judicial ticket, attacking In somewhat biting
terms the "mongrel" opposition ticket and
the two former republicans who had ac
cepted places upon it. Incidentally he de
fined a "machine," and said that it meant
simply an "organization," as essential to
a church or philanthropic or business enter
prise as to a successful political party.
Anti-Machine for Harmon)-.
II. C. Brome declared that the new pri
mary rules would work a decided reform
and would prevent the buying and selling of
delegations at conventions. The anti
machine people, he said, were especially
Interested In harmony this fall and of re
fraining from Blate making, because the
people were now to be allowed to choose
their own candidates, precisely what the
antl-machlne faction had always demanded1.
Therefore, he said, there would not be tho
smallest reason for antl-machlne voters re
fusing to support the ticket that will be
chosen by the people. No apologies were
necessary for the insurgent wing of the
party for deeds of tho past, he said, end
none would be for the future.
"Whenever I . think of harmony Im
mediately attune my voice to sing," said
E. J. Cornish In beginning.
Much trouble there had been In the
county, he admitted, and he was not cer
tain that it Is all over, but he said the
rank .nd file are demanding that knifing
cease and It must be stopped. The pol
ltlclnns are reading the writing on the wall
and know that they must bury the hatchet.
He alluded to Mr. Webster aijd quoted
President Roosevelt's statement that the
vice presidential candidate on tha ticket
with him must come from the west.
Concerning the new rules, Mr. Cornish
said he believed they were good ones and
will bring good results, but he said it la
impossible for the voters to know per-
aonally all the candidates and their quali
fications. He expected to make a private
slate and to urge his friends to Bupport
It, conceiving this course as his duty as a
good citizen. He spoke of the practical
side of making a ticket and said the voters
should be educated to understand the ne
cessity of balancing the ticket according
to geography, nationality, etc.
W. A. Saunders said be believed the
people competent to judge whom they
wanted as candidates. No slate of any
kind should be put up, he said, and no
coercion used to drive candidates from the
Presents tho Resolutions.
At the close of Mr. Saunders' speech T.
W. Blackburn secured the attention of
Chairman Millard and read the "harmony"
resolutions, which were adopted by prac
tically a unanimous vote.
John L. Kennedy aaid he believed in the
necessity of a party machine, but said he
wanted a machine big enough to carry the
whole party. Good faith all around la ne
cessary for harmony, he pointed out, and
ha toldthe old story of the man, who In
giving orders for the disposition of his
mother-in-law's remains, ordered them em
balmed, buried and burned, and t "take
no chances." This process wai what Mr.
Kennedy advocated to put the old differ
ences to sleep. He urged his hearers not
to think of the old scores "not to talk
about wha haa been, but what should be."
Prejudice, he said, must have no place
In any campaign In the future If results
are to be achieved. He pointed to Mr.
Rosewater as the man who ran de more
than any other In Omaha to allay fuc
tlonal differences and said that to do It
he must lay all personalities aside and
jpport the nominees of the party. -
Dr. W. H. Christie was inclined to eat
fire and to rake up ancient controversies,
protesting loudly against "branding," "the
yellow dog proposition," and declaring a
great many times that the republican party
can do no wrong.
Necessity of Direction.
The reception accorded Mr. Rosewater,
aa that given to the other candidates, waa
warm and turbulent. Mr. Rosewater began
his brief speech by quoting the old adage,
To err Is human and to forgive divine,"
saying that the republican party In Doug
las county can wfcll afford to bury the
errors of the past aud forgive the In.
juries. He took Issue with one of the
former speakers, who said that individual
ism is becoming more and more a factor
in all success, and said that the day of
individualism ta pc.tUng away, the cap
tains ot industry and the industrial com
omatione making this inevitable. Political
parties must have leaders to win battles.
the aame aa armies must have competent
generals. In the early days of tha re.
public much greater freedom was given to
in people in choosing presidents, but with
Increasing population it was necessary to
restrict the original unrestricted and direct
melnoa or choice.
Primary elections, said Mr. Rosewater
need direction and leadership if they gre
to accompusa anything worthy. He lllus

all ranks of business and endeavor. They
made a well-balanced and efficient di
rectory, which could not have been ob
tained had there not been some preliminary
selection, consideration and direction.
Under the new primary system the 12,000
republican voters In the county vote on
the candidates, not one of whom. In the
speaker's opinion, Is personally acqunlnted
with more thsn 1.500 of the people. Should
a slate be prepared with the best Inter
ests of the party at heart, there wou4d be
nothing to prevent the people from voting
for whomsoever they pleased, but they
would have the benefit of the wisdom and
Judgment of the men who had made poli
tics a careful study for years and who
knew the personality of the aspirants for
Unless the primaries are properly carried
out, Mr. Rosewater maintained, they will
wreck tho ticket, which should be sup
ported because It deserves support and not
merely because It Is republican. "Let us
be good Americans first and good repub
licans afterward," he said.
Free Speech and Free Thought.
It was free fpeeih and free men who
had conquered In battle for the nation,
the speaker declared, and it has been un
testfained freedom of thought that has
enabled The Bee to take rank as a great
newspaper. Freedom of thought enabled
the editor to believe in what lie wrote
and this sincerity in what was written tor
good government, lias given the pupe.r
whatever Influence It has. Should honest
conviction be dethroned for platitude and
the fulsome support of men and principles
not believed in personally by the editor, the
Influence would be lost.
Rof erring to what Dr. Christie had said
concerning their being no bad men in the
republican party, Mr. ' Rosewater said this
statement was ridiculous and It might as
well be said that there are no bad men In
church, whereas It Is hardly worth while
to state the simple truth that bad men
are everywhere. With reference to the
editorial quoted by Mr. Burbank, Mr. Rose
water said he hud In mind the fact that it
la Impossible to expect the people to sup
port men unqualified for oltice and that
In making tne ticket the party is either
made or unmade. In other words, that
tho nominees must be men that will de
serve success or they will not attain It.
In closing Mr. Rosewater said It waa
clear that If the factional fights that have
prevailed for the last four or five years
are kept up there will be nothing worthy
of the name left In Douglas county of the
republican party. Old issues must be set
aside and attention directed to the new.
The talk of W. F. Gurley, was, perhaps,
the least disposed to harmony of any
heard. Time and again he Indulged In bit
ing personalities directed principally to
wards the editor of The Bee. He main
tained that the people are fitted to pick out
their own candidates to suit themselves
without advice and that no other man can
tell them how to vote. He talked of the ad
vantages of the new rules, and said there
must be no Interference of any kind with
the candidates If real harmony is to be
expected. He said that the practical side,
"the balance" of a ticket should be cast
to the winds and not even considered at the
Judge Barnes Is Hopeful.
Judgo Barnes said he thought he saw
some signs of harmony promise In the sky
and that the republicans of Douglas county
are coming to theiit own again. He eulo
gized Omaha and Its people and said noth
ing In the state Is too good for It, but
pointed out that If anything Is to be done
In the state conventions and In state poli
tics Douglas county republicans must be
able to elect their own county and city of
ficers and show themselves able to control
affairs In their own provinces. "When you
have nominated your candidates, for God's
sake, stick to them," was his closing ap
peal. Webster Winds Vj.
John L. Webster's appearance set the'
crowd In a frenzy of cheering, although
it was late In the evening and the audience
had had Its full share of talk. Mr. Webster
said It was tho grandest and most Im
portant duty of every republican to sup
port the ticket whenever nominated. He
said that the great duty is to vote upon
the principles, rather than because of the
candidates. To show the necessity for
unity and the fact that personal likes and
dislikes should count for little he told of
the history of the federal constitution, the
difficulty In the making of It and the re
luctance of many delegates to sign the

Harmony In Two Wards.
Harmony In the republican ranks was the
slogan of the hour at the Joint meeting of
the First and Second Ward Republican
clubs held In Meti hall Inst evening. More
voters than usual were present and were
entertained with short but spirited' "har
mony" talks from the aspirants to public
favor who came to greet them.
E. J. Cornish opened the ball, making an
eloquent appeal for harmony, which drem
forth vociferous and prolonged applause.
At the conclusion of Mr. Cornish's address
candidates were Introduced by Chairman
II. E. Ostrom asked the voters for their
support to assist him In getting the nomina
tion for County assessor a nd put in a word
for harmony. E. F. Bralley, who has no
opposition for the nomination to the office
of county coroner, which office he now
holds, thanked the First and Second ward
ers for courtesies already shown and so
licited their continued suffrage. Charles
Unitt, who would be county clerk, reviewed
tho election and contest of two years ago,
when he was a candidate, and congratulated
the republicans of the two wards on their
loyalty to himself and party on that occa
sion. F. W. Stubbendorf, candidate for
county treasurer, was listened to with evi
dent Interest as he told of the great victory
possible for the party if factionalism and
petit differences were brushed aside before
flection day next November. E. L. Oustaf
son, aspirant for the ofHce of county clerk,
talked along the same harmony lines as
his predecessors and was brief but pointed
In what he said. 11. W. Cowduroy, also

Section 3, article ill, chapter xxvl, provides
that candidates nhall, within ten days after
nomination, tile an affidavit of nomination
Section 4 provides that those elected shall,
within ten days after such election, file an
affidavit of election expenses.
Section 6 provides a il.i.xiO penalty for a
failure In the cuse so to do, bnd section 6
provides further against a fuilure so to do,
"No board, officer, or officers, authorized
by law to issue commissions or certificates
of election, shall Issue a commission or cer
tificate of election to any person required
by the 3rd or. 4th sections hereof to tile a
statement or statements until such state
ment or statements shall have been so
made, verlried and filed."
The phrase "so made" Is a requisite as to
time, as well as substance and form, and
therefore forbids an officer from Issuing a
commission or certificate when the same is
not so filed.
The only officers referred to in section 0,
to the extent of forbidding the issuance of
commissions or certificates of election, for
failure to file under section 3, are the offi
cers chosen by the convention, with respect
to which section O-J of chapter xxvi pro
vides: "The officers of all primary ejections held
under the provisions Hereof shall have the
same power and privileges as officers of
regular stalo elections, und -.hall be- sub
ject to the same restrictions, limitations
Therefore, when section 6 provides that
the officers of the regular state elections
shall not Issue a certificate of election he
cause of certain acts of neglect, that same
law shall also be applied to primary elec
tions, and Is binding upon such officers con
cerning its nomin i Ions or selections.
Section S provides that this statement
shall be filed within ten days. The lan-
Juage Is Imperative, and the result of the
.allure Is the denial of the certificates, and
the duty of the convention officers to refuse
to Issue such certificates follows neces
sarily. Yet the legislature, recognizing that some
times Its commands are not executed, has
made provision accordingly. Whore failure
Is made in tiling statements, nu wueis
officers nevertheless do Issue certificates,
and other officers place the name of such
derelicts on the ballot, section provio.es
that such derelict candidate, receiving a
majority of the votes, shall riot draw his
salary until he does file such statements.
This nrovision docs not. however, change
the duty of the convention officers. It If
simply a piovlslon that, when a candidate
(though delinquent) has been elected, thus
becoming the people's choice, he. may cure
the defect Ir his title to the emoluments of
his office. The provision applies only in
cases where, by common consent, a candi
date has, repardless of the mandatory re
quirements, been permmeu to run mm u
clared tho choice of the people.

PARROT CAUSE OF AN ARREST
William Griffin and Mrs. Klnne.iin
Doth Claim the Same
Wanted, a parrot. No common, ordinary
parrot will do. It must be one certain
bird, and the one which is wanted enn
not be found. A short time ago William
Grlflln, 1106 South Tenth street, turned a
parrot over to Mrs. Flnnegun for safekeep
ing. There is now a dispute as to the
terms of the agreement on which the bird
was turned over. Mrs. Flnnegan assert,
she bought the parrot outright, while Grif
fin states with Just as much emphasis that
the bird wns only turned over to be cared
for during a short period and wns to be
roturned In good condition on the payment
of certain charges for Its keeping.
GrlfTln has made seversl attempt, to
secure possession of tho parrot, but so
far ha. failed utterly In his designs. He
first made overtures to Mrs. Flnnegan with
a view to Inducing her to accept payment
for its keeping, and other expenses In
curred, she to relinquish nil claim to the
feathered pet. Mrs. Flnnegan demurred.
She not only demurred, but finally refused.
Grlflln threatened and cajoled, but all to
no purpose. After he found all plans frilled
he hied himself to the city prosecutor',
office and swore out a warrant, charging
the woman with larceny as bailee. As a
result Mrs. Flnnegan is now peeping
through the bar. in the city jail trying to
see a way out. But the bird hidden, and
she Is still set In her purpose of not dis
closing Its whereabouts.
