this week from a small dealer with eleva

his house was full and he could net no

agent sn order had been Issued from head

agree to bill them to terminal elevators.
The reason given for this action was that
the hilling to the Mg elevators would as

Ihe chief clerk, and all companies were

there were enough cars on hand Friday
morning to meet all demands. This con

the fact that the demand for cars had
fallen off a little, owing the fact that

Javob Bailiff's apprehension of a severe
money panic la not shared by at least two
of Omaha s most prominent bankers. Her
man Kountze, president of the First Na
tional, and C. F. McOrew, vice president of
the CM nan National bank, of which Sen
ator Millard Is president, fail to see Just
foundation for the fears expressed by Mr.
fichlff, both pointing to the fact of the
established prosperity of the country nd
particularly the west as sufficient safe
guard against any collapse of the money
market due to over-speculation.
Mr. McOrew said:
"I do not think there In the slightest
grounds for fear of any Immediate panic.
The country has never been on a better
and sounder financial basis than Just now
and the- prospect for it Indefinite continu
ance is good. Mr. 8c hi IT'S predictions are,
to my way of thinking, utterly groundless. .
There Is abundant money In New York and
the east for all needed commercial pur
poses and I have not the remotest doubt

manufacturing or other trade purposes
could be obtained at the Chemical Na
tional bank of Ne. York and like Institu
tions tn auy needed. cruanUty at 6 per cent.
Speculative money Is always higher and
there la no criterion by which speculative
loana can be governed. Money Is not
stringent for legitimate purposes, but is al
ways more or less stringent for speculative
Result of Speculation.
Mr. Kountxe said:
"I have read Mr. Schiff'a prophecy. I
think Mr.. 8chiff's anxiety la more the re
sult of the speculative tendency In the east
than from any general condition. Affairs
In the west are In splendid condition, being
based upon solid prosperity and confidence..
I really do not think there la any rea-on to
apprehend a panic. The recent high prices
paid for call money In New York were tha
direct result of the speculative tendency.
Money can be obtained In New York for
commercial and manufacturing purposes In
any needed amount for from B to 7 per cent.
The trust companies are virtually the great
bankers of the east, and they have Immense
deposits, but It Is possible they may not
have more than 3 per cent of their reserves
on deposit, while the national banks with
out exception have anything over 36 per

extensive panic In New York and Boston
would have Its effect in the west, as It
would be like cutting off one of our hands,
and the greater the panic the greater the
dismemberment of our western financial
body. But In brief I do not see any reason
for Mr. Schiff's gloomy prophecies and hove
no fear there Is auy likelihood of their occurrence."

SCARE 0VERP?IS0NED FISH
Fear F.ti pressed by Commissioner
They lny He on "ale Investi
gation at Cut Off Ukr,
Poisoned fish may be on the market in
some out-of-the-way places for the Omaha
public to cat.
This is the decision of Fish Commissioner
W. J. O'Brien, who In company with Dep
uty Commissioner I). E. Smith. Is In Omaha
to Investigate some startling circumstances
around Cut Off lake. Deputy Plerson and
Mr. O'Brien investigated a slough south
and east of Cut Off lake, and although
thre was over ten feet of water the tlsh
were all stunned or dead and floating on
top of the writer and under Hie Ice. Mr.
I O'Brien said:
"We investigated several other such pools
and found the tlsh till alive and well, but
It was different In tills place. Some one
evidently has placed some substance, such
as refuse from the gas house or lime, or
something, to stun these fish with the evi
dent Intent of g?t Ing the fish to pedd.e. No
game fish were found by ns, as the water
from the large lake evidently does not flow
Into this slough, so none of the game fish
ran In during the spring rise.
"We also ore going to take the game fish
from Willow lake, which Is north and east
of Cut Off. I saw a lot of sun fish ther.i
and I think there are many croppies and
bass. W will cut a hole In the Ice and
take them out with a net, and If wa find
many will continue for several days. We
want to do what we. can to make Cut Off
lake a good fishing resort for the people of
Omaha, and from reports of the catches
which were made during the summer X
think the bass which we have planted dur
ing the last few years are growing nicely."
