Aueiesilon made liy Mr. Henry W.
Yates, president or the Nebraska National
bank or Omaha, Neb.
l'n-l-r list of August ss, 19u6, Mr. Yates
writes as follows:
"I notice that you are inviting com
iiiHiita i upon the repot t of the committee of
the American Bankers' axsnctstlon con-
inlnif uset or credit currency. I enclose
herewith my reply to letter from Mr.
W.imihi.n requesting my opinion. At the
linkers' conventlomi which I have at
tended ami where the 'question has been
tisciismd, the Vote token7 has always been
d.T(rteia.- in opposition to' any scheme of
the el Winter here outlined.
"I brieve the argiimems advanced In
fnvoi of a credit currency to be fallacious.
Mr. WiriVrlln In a ncent address declare
lliitt there is no Ionic In saying thst, bt
cHuee we hsve seen periods of fiiO per cent
money In Wall street 'that the seat of
difficulty must be Wall street.' The tumble
lie sh)s -l not with Wall street; It Is
fundamental imd is Inherently related to
our unscientific currency.' In view of the
actual facts of the case, and the dally ob
ject lesson presented even now (August K)
In Wall street. It la difficult to take Mr.
Vsnderlip seriously. No system of circula
tion could b devleeil to meet such chang
ing conditions, and if our system of cur
rency In thereby proved to be unscientific,
then gold ought to be abolished as money,
as, in this respect, it Is . tha most un
scientific of systems.
"The auhor4ty to Issue clearing lions
circulation heavily taxrd has been advo
cated by me for years, and wss outlined

It does not. however, seem to hsve marie !
much Impression upon thou most vltstlv
com'-frned, who seem to work or advocate
almost any other kind of a acheme."
Ths following Is from a, letter addressed
tr Mr. J. 1a Hamilton, president of the
Aniirlcau Banker association, by Mr.
late, under date or August 20:
"My Dear Mr. Hamilton: Your favor of
August 17 Is received, and I have read with
Interest your proposed bill for a ctedlt or
clearance currency. 1 regret very much
that I am hot- able, to concur with you In
the Rdvlsahllity of ths srhem. I haVe for
years, at several bankers' conventions, op

''I do not think an emergency currency,
which might never, however, be used,
would be Advisable, but I do not believe
any general kind of currency scheme would
be for the best benefit of the country.' I

I wrote upon the subject, but t course
there are many others In the same direc
tion. "t trust the American Bankers' sssocla

Now, In the first place, the Idea that an
emergency currency could be secretly Is
sued during a panic cannot be entertained.
It - would be like an ' ostrich burying It

On the other hand, 'It Is the publicity of

but the result will be accomplished by a
deposit of Iswful money, sod the notes will
therrsfter circulate lust ss other national
currency, and without, there being any
actual Increase in the volume or circula
tion. The main difficulty, however. Is political.
It Would be easy for the demagogue to
stsmpede congress with the sssertion thst
a clearing house scheme Is In the Interest
of a few banks or a few cities against the
many and of Wall street In particular
against the balance of the country. The
fact thst It would be for tne neneni or
the whole country cannot be Impressed
upon the ordinary politician. He must first
be shown or educated, and that la a long
road to travel. It Is altogether probable
that, as the secretary says, we shsll have
no currency legislation until we shsll hsve
experienced snother panic when the' fall
ure to possess so simple a resource as Is
here proposed, may cost untold ums of
t-money and Involve dlssstrous and isr-
reschltig consequences, wnicn years win
be required to efface.
While the panic Is on. we will sll talk
emergency currency relief, but when It Is
over simple measures will again be over
looked In the mate of. theoretical currency
schemes, and the country at large, think
ing little and realising . less of the reel
exigencies of the situation, will be Inclined
to cry "a plague upon sll of your money

passed through the gate to the vestibule.
There, leaving my shoes," and my friend
and the maid their sandals, we entered
th house In stocking feet.
The first- room, a six mat one, was nine
6y twelve feet. It wit divided by sliding
screen from the one next the garden, a
corner room twelve feet wide and at that
time twenty-four feet long. Through the
center of this large room were the Iron

sliding screens that at night would divide
It Into two sleeping rooms, but as the day
wa warm and fair the screens had heen

our hostess. A patter -of light feet, the
sliding of a screen and she appeared. Reef
ing our outspread hands before us on the
straw mt we made deep reverence in
response to the how of cordial greeting..
Having brought with ua, a a gift, a box
of sweets, tied with the red and white gift
string and the slip of paper folded like an
arrow's sheaf, we 1ld It gently toward
the little woman. She received It grelonsly
but, according to etiquette neither touched
nor opened the box.
When formalities were over and we were
pleasantly chatting. In walked the husband
and professor. Just back from college. '

took her three' puff from It, while the pro

would cost about $600. and the land I
valued at tano.

The people of Republic City, In Repub
lic county, Kansas, have organised for the
purpose of celebrating the 100th anniversary
of th visit of Zebulon Montgomery Pike to
the village of the Pawnee republic, Sep
tember 2f, I, when the Spanish flag was
hauled down and the symbol of American
sovereignty substituted. Republlo City la
hut six miles south of the Nebraska line,
and various organlzatlona from both Kan
sss and Nebraska will participate in th
commemorative exercises on the 29th Inst.
While making his famous exploration
of Western plains and mountains, which
resulted in the first knowledge of Pike's
peak. General Pike found -a village ' of
Pawnee Indians with the Spanish flag
above them, notwithstanding the transfer
of the country by the Louisiana purchase,
and that he caused them to take It down
and raise the flag of the t'nlted States
In Its place.
Thla flag Incident Is the first and about
the most Interesting In the history of Kin-
sas. In 1901 the state legislature erected
a twenty-seven-foot granite shaft on this
village site of the Pawneo republic and
placed an Iron fence around eleven acres,
the land being the gift of Elisabeth A.
The flag Incident Is thus described by
General Pake: '
"September . 29. Held our grand council
with the. Pawnees, at which were present
not less than 0 warriors, the circum
stances of which were extremely Interest
ing. The notes I took on my grand coun
cil held with the Pawnee nation were
seised by the Spanish government, together
with all my speeches to the different na
tions. But It may be Interesting to observe-
here.- In cae they should never
be returned, that the Spaniards had left
several of their flags In this village, one
of which waa unfurled at the chief door
the day of the grand council and that
among various demsnds and charges I gave
them was, that the said flag should be
delivered to me, and one of the I'nlted
State flags be received and hoisted In Its
place. This probably was carrying the
pride of nations a little too far, as there
had so lately been A large force of Span
ish cavalry at the village, which had mad
a great Impression on the minds of th
young men as to their power, consequence,
etc.. which my appearance, with twenty
Infantry, was by no means calculated to
"After the chiefs had replied to the
various part of my discourse, but were
silent as to the flag. I again reiterated
the demand for the flag, adding, 'that It
waa Impossible for the nation to have
two fathers; that they must either1 be the
children of the Spaniards or acknowledge
their American father.' After a sllenc
of some time an old man arose, went to
the door, took down the Spanish flag,
,brought It and laid it at my feet; he then
received th American flag and elevated
It on the staff which had lntely borne
the standard of his Catholic majesty. This
gave great satisfaction to the Osage and
Kans. both of whom derfdedly avow them
selves to be under American protection.
Perceiving that every face In the council
was clouded with sorrow, a If some great
national calamity were about to befall
them, I took up the contested colors and
told them, that as they had shown them
selves dutiful children In acknowledging
their great American father, I did not wish
to embarrass them with the Spaniards,
for It was the wlshvof the Americans that
their red brethren should remain peaceably
arovnd their own Area and not embroil
themselves In any dispute between the
white people and that for fear the Span
lards might return there In force" again, I
returned their flag, but with an Injunction
that It should never be hoisted again dur
ing our stay. At this there was a general
shout of applause, and th charge was
particularly attended to."

Prof. Hart. In his Interesting article on
Oklahoma, admonished his New England
readers thst It Is pronounced Oak, not
Ok-lahoma. Prof. Hart did well, as in
editorial paragrnph of the same Issue
thereby noted. The same paragraph com
mented on other pronunciations oN places,
used by their residents, that are quite dif
ferent from our usage. Now, this Is a New

It with some trepidation, but here goes:

there they stress the last syllable and
call It "leens." Omaha Is VOmahaw." not

Missouri Is "Mlczoura." Tou are more
likely to hear "Coloraydo" than "Colo

cented on the penult, not the ultimate.

more rural people would call It 'I-o-wsy,'

Lowndes or anybody elss In the Hawkeye

else. When I go to register and I am asked

It down Ireland and asks If I have my
