Omaha' consolidated bank, the t'nlted
States National, the component parts of
which are the t'nlon. Commercial and
Untied States Nationals, hns been In ac
tive operation one week, or In other words,
' It has been one week nines the number of
national banks In Omaha was reduced from
seven to five, and yet the bank clearings
continue to Increase. The total for the
week la t9.iW.606. 41, which Is $3,626,7. 31
greater than for the corresponding week of
1504. Whatever the cause for this tremend
ous Increase bankers assert It ought to go
far toward demonstrating that Omaha has
not suffered from the recent amalgamation
of banking Interests. Whether It has
gained or not they say remains to be seen.
"The truth Is," said one financier, "Omaha
la making unparalleled progress and devel
opment commercially and her advancement
1b not to be checked by any ordinary transi
tion In the business affairs of Its separate
Institutions. Our bank clearings dally and
annually for a long period have been sur
passing those of cities much larger In pop
ulation, such as St. Paul, Denver, Los An
geles and even Buffalo, occasionally,
and this can be , taken as an In
dication of the unimpeded progress the
city Is making. We are enjoying an era of
ptnsnerity never before known In Omaha,
and the best feature of It Is It possesses
none of the "boom" characteristics. Is not
spasmodic, but constant and substantial."

A bunch of Omaha Indlnns, benrlng the
euphonious titles of Big Tree, Green Cloud
and South Wind, with others of the more
comprehensive patronymics, William
Hcnssy, Mrs. Hall Farrlsh and the no
torious pair known as the Rupert Twins,
were brought down from the reservation
Saturday morning by Deputy United States
Marshal John Skies for a summer's visit
with Sheriff Power at the Douglas county
Tho visit was Insisted upon by United
States Commissioner SInghaus at Tekamah,
because. the aforesaid Indians were indis
posed to put up the requisite bond - of

federal grand Jury In November next, to
answer for taking liquor onto tho reserva

friends without observing the due formali

The Gibson Soap Company, Omaha, Neb.
Gentlemen: I have used Gibson's Soap
Polish In the Boston Clearing house since
1900 and find It to be the best and cheapest
cleaner I have ever found. I believe I had
one of the first barrels of Gibson's Soap
Polish that was delivered In Boston and
have continued using It, as I have nevor
found anything else that would do my work
In cleaning marble and wood floors I find
that they dry out their natural color, a re
sult I could never get before and I have
used everything on the market. For clean
ing painted walls or woodwork your Gib
son's Soap Polish has no equal, and is well
named, "King of Cleaners." Respectfully
yours, H. F. FULLER.
It may seem strange that the culture and
refinement of Boston must come to Omaha
to find the best cleaner on earth, but such
la the fact. Gibson's Soap Polish Is used
the world over, wherever cleanliness Is
prised. For home use It Is put up in one
pound cans with perforated covers at 10

Tho Exodas to Canada.
OMAHA, July n. To the Editor 6f The
Bee: in your editorial In this morning's
Issue of The Bee on "Loss of Population to
Canada" you speak as If the lamentable
exodus was "unreasonable." Suppose in
stead of saying this, you test the phenome
non by the well known principle of cause
and effect, and as a great newspaper en
deavor to find the cause and seek to apply
Having some knowledge of the situation,
having been there, and being somewhat well
conversant with the situation in contrast
with our home matters here In Nebraska,
I have no hesitation In saying, first, cheap
lands, but more than this. II will go as far
In paying taxes there as 110 will here.
Then, your article In the same Issue on
"Graft" In the city of Milwaukee, which
might better be headed "Greed and Graft
Everywhere," and which would seem to
apply to the whole country, for the country
seems to be permeated with It from one end
to the other, from high to low, but chiefly
high, may have something to do with It.
Just now this gives a very discouraging
outlook to the patriotic American cttlien
who reads the newspapers. Granted I But
the remedy, you say. Read Washington'
'Farewell Address." ye beacon lights of the
people. "Beware of partisanship and party
spirit." the keynote of It. No traitor to his
country Is so dangerous as the thick and
thin party man. J. J. HAWTHORNE.
Replr to the Other Side.
BASIN, Wyo.. July 24. To the Editor of
The Bee: I notice In your Issue of July 15
a letter from one'C. F. Robertson, secre
tary and general manager of the Hanover
Canal company and Hanover Land and Ir
rigation company, where he makes a state
ment that the said Alexander McDonalc
tried to discredit the enterprise and the
men who are Interested In It, which state
ment made by the said C. F. Robertson is
false. He furthermore stated that I have
no Interest In either enterprise. But I will
show proof to the contrary In tho highest
court of Wyoming, above their own signa
tures that of N. B. Rairden and C. F.
Robertson. If Mr. Rairden will refer o his
copybook of July . 13, 1901, he will see how
much he (Mr. . Rairden) admits. that I am
In said company.
I want to say that I am claiming or ask
ing nothing only such as I am entitled to,
and I have the necessary papers to. prove
my Interest In the canal. Roberts makes
the statement that the case was thrown
out of court by Judgo Parmelee. Now, he
knows that to be a falsehood, for It will
not be out of court, unless settled by mu
tual agreement by both parties, before the
October term. ' I have the best of feeling
toward both the Hanover enterprises and
wish them the very best of success, but
Lthey want all my interest for nothing, and
I was compelled to go Into court and ask
for the protection of my rights. .
As to the commute of arbitration, my
case Is not a matter of arbitration. I nave
the documents to show the court my rights,
and as to the proposition-made by C F.
Robertson personally, I nave nothing to
settle with him; It la. with the Hanover
Canal company and -the Hanover Land and
Irrigation company. - C. F. Robertson gives
for reference the State Loan and' Trust
company of Basin City,' Wyo., ' which has
been In business for only ninety days. Why
did he not refer to '.the Big Horn County
bank, the oldest bank In the county, doing
business at Basin City, Wyo.t .

Desecrating the Marriage Service.
OMAHA, July . To the Editor of The
Bee: Permit me to thank Rev. Comble
8mith through your columns for hla letter
with reference to the proposed marriage
in a balloon to be "drawn off" In a so-called
"summer resort."' While . enddrslng fully
all that Mr. Smith has said, permit me
to ask. Is there a man who, as minister,
priest or justice, with soul so dead as to
be willing to prostitute his honorable calling
for filthy lucre as to play a part In such a
base affair? If there be,' may a righteously
Indignant people relegate him as soon
possible to "Innocuous desuetude."
