Attorney General Brown today filed in
the supreme court the answer to the ap
plication ol the Bankers' I'nlon of the
World for a writ of mandamus to com
pel Auditor Sesrle to grant a license to
the company and the answer bristles with
charges against the management of the
Of the report filed by the .company with
the auditor of its condition the attorney
general alleges that It is false and fraud
ulent In many respects; that It was wholly
untrue with respect to the assets and lia
bilities of the Bankers' Union of the
World; that It wss untrue with respect
to the number of Its members and Its
outstanding certificates, and that It wholly
failed to give a full and correct list of
Its outstanding liabilities and suits against
said company and that the failure to give
a full report of the condition of said com
pany was the deliberate, willful act of Us
managing officers.'
The answer also alleges that the com
pany during the year 3904 and preceding
years has conducted its business fraud
ulently and In utter disregard to the rights
of Its membership and other beneficiaries;
that the business of the company was con
ducted for the profit and advantages of
Its controlling officers, particularly its
president, supreme secretary and recorder
and treasurer, and not for the benefit of Its
members; that of all liabilities arising
on contracts outstanding and paid for by
the members holding them not one has ever
been settled either promptly or In full or
to the advantage of either the policy
holder or the beneficiary of the policy con
tract. Another section of the answer alleges
that there Is a shortage in the mortuary
fund of 85.000 according to the statement
Hied with the auditor and made a part of
its petition. This offense alone, the answer
sets forth, Is sufficient grounds to refuse
the license.
Old Chief Red Clood, Commonly Be
lieved Desd, ( enter of Interest.
CHADRON, Neb.. July 16. (Special.) In
connection with the Chadron carnival the
Sioux Indians are holding an old settlers'
reunion. One hundred tepees are pitched
about the town and the prairie is dotted
with the long suffering Indian ponies.
The greatest Interest of the occasion
centers about Red Cloud, the famous chief
of the Ogallala Sioux. It Is the general
idea that this old war chief long ago
passed Into history and it Is thought for
the last two years his royal remains have
been peacefully lashed to some cotton
wood tree beside his best loved stream.
The newspapers published some fine, obi
tuaries of the old man which, being In
terpreted to Red Cloud, 'caused him
much amusement. Red Cloud Is now 86
years old and totally blind. His mind is
still good, though he might not be able
to give as lawyer-like an answer to a
difficult question as he gave to the com
mander of the Indian agency In his younger
days. It happened that a good Presby
terian was in charge of Indian affairs at
Washington. He became greatly shocked
over reports he heard in regard to the
morality of the Indians. Later he sent
an order upon the subject to Major Mc-
Gllllcuddy, who was then agent at Pine
Ridge. The agent called the braves Into
council and read the order from Wash
ington to them. "You see," said Major
McGllltcuddy, "it means this, someone has
been telling at Washington that some of
you have two wives. This order has come
to say that after this none of you must
have more than one wife."
The Indians smoked for a long time In
silence. The spirit seemed to move no one
to speak on so Important a subject. At
last Red Cloud broke the silence.
'We have all heard If we travel south
of here to the Iron horse and then go west
many days toward the setting sun that at
last we come 'to a land where the water
smells of fish- and tastes of salt. In -that
land we have heard the white men have as
many wives as they wish. You ask the
Great Father at Washington why he don't
attend to those white men about their
wives, then after that If he has any time
left he can see to one or two poor In
diana who have more than one wife."
Before the beginning of the Indian
dances Red Cloud made a speech to the
people In which he said that he did not
sell the Black Hills outright to the United
States government, but loaned them to
the Great Father at Washington for seven
generations, and that when the seven gen
erations have passed away the Black Hills
will again belong to the Indians.
'But will the Great Father forget?" he
added, as though thinking of other days.

Larse Yields of Hlh Grade Are
Reported and Damage by
Hessian Fly Is Rot
ALBION, Neb., July 15 (8peclal.)-One
week has passed without rain and farmers
have been kept busy cultivating corn and
harvesting wheat. Corn that is well tended
Is msklng rapid progress.
WEST POINT. Neb., July 15. (Special.)
The hot weather of the last five days
has been of immense benefit to the corn
on high land. Most of the fields are laid
by and the prospect for a bountiful yield
Is excellent. The corn on the bottom lands
is recovering somewhat and with favorable
weather will make at least half a crop.
The crop of small grain Is rapidly matur
ing and prospects are for a yield above
the average.
SCHUYLER, Neb., July 15. (Speclal.)
The crop of small grain In Cotfax county
Is going to be extra good this year. The
wheat crop will nearly all grade No. 1 and
the yield will be from twenty-five to forty
bushels to the acre. A Butler county
farmer, who lives Just across the river. Is
threshing this week, and says his wheat
WIN weigh out sixty-two and sixty-three
nounds to the bushel. Corn Is coming to
the front In great shape, the warm weather
this week being Just what It neeaea. ine
hav iiron will he exceDtlonallv heavy and
of a good quality. The hay men have be
gun putting up the crop and rurnish em
ployment to all unemployed people. The
weather during the last week has been very
warm, with no rain. The last rain here
was on the Fourth.
EXETER. Neb.. July 15. (Special.) The
excessive heat of the last three or four
days has been almost too mucn lor man
or beast, in the hay, harvest and corn
fields. Several farmers have lost horses.
The wheat Is about all In the shock and a
few are threshing. The best reports so
far from the few who have threshed is
around twenty-ftve bushels per acre, test
ing sixty-two pounds per bushel; although
It Is reported there are a number of pieces
that will yield thirty or more bushels. It
does not appear that the Hessian fly hurt
north Fillmore county. Corn, which was
kept back so long by the cold, wet weather,
has made giant strides this week, and is
now looking fine.
FREMONT, Neb., July 16. (Special.)
The hot, dry weather still continues. This
afternoon the mercury stood at from 92
to 96. and as there was a warm wind from
the south it was extremely uncomfortable.
Farmers say It is Just what corn needs.
HARVARD. Neb., July 15. (Specials
Wheat threshing began early this week
and Is turning out a good quality and gen
erally around twenty-five to thirty bushels
where favorable conditions have prevailed
for a crop.
Farmers have been busy between wheat
harvest and corn plowing, corn making fine
advancement under the influence of several
days of warm weather and fresh plowing.
Corn In the hailed district Is also com
ing out better than anticipated and with
favorable conditions will make a gooo
crop where stalk Is not injured by hall.
Price for wheat Is gradually dropping,
being off I cents today, at 68 cents.
