Financial Institutions Oppose Action
of State Treasurer Brian.
fteaater Millard ays He Has watlded
State He t'aaaot raaas-ly with
Ike ew Rale After First
( Jalr.
Omaha and Lincoln banks have refused
to accept sate funds for deposit at the in
creased rate of 1 per cent, as announced
recently by the state treasurer, L. G.
Brian, ar.d If the old rate cf 2 per cent Is
not continued the action of the treasurer
probably will reVilt ln the withdrawal of
all state funds from the Omaha banks
after July L
When asked If the Omaha banks would
continue to borrow state funds at the In
creased rate, ex-Senator Millard, president
of the Omaha National bank, said:
"We have notified the treasurer that, al
though we would like to retain the deposit
now held by us at I per cent, we cannot
continue to accept them at I pet cent after
July . L His action ln raising- the interest
rate on state funda, which has been at
the usual business rate of 1 per cent, la
very unfair, and we do not want . any
money at the higher rate. It la really a
matter of little moment to the Omaha
tanks, aa only about CXVxjO of state money
Is held by the backs here. I understand
all the other banksof Omaha, as well as
those of Lincoln, have notified Treasurer
Brian that they do not want any state
money at the t per cent rate."
Ssrk Dewtaade.
Luther L. Kountxe of the First National
bank, said: "We have no demand for
deposits on which we pay S per cent in
terest and could not accept demand de
posits st that rate from any source. 1
think there will be considerable opposition
ty the bankers to paying more than 2
per cent."
The opposition by the bankers toward
receiving stat money at the t per cent
rate has developed because of several rea
sons. First, that the regular business rate
for money of this kind la 2 per cent, and It
Is alleged that monetary conditions have
not changed sufficiently to warrant the
advance, notwithstanding the statement of
Treasurer Brian that he haa demands from
country bankers for state funds at the
higher rate. The second reason is that
wrth the cost of filing a bond as security
for the sight deposits from the state the
profit accruing Is materially reduced. It Is
even asserted that Treasurer Brian's ac
tion In advancing the Interest rate la in
effect repudiation of the contra'cts entered
Into with the different backs when new
bonds were Bled for the aecurlty of the
state money under the assumption that it
was to be loaned st the lower rate,
Jim Collateral Baalaesa.
Another reason advanced by the bankers
for refusing to accept state deposits at the
higher rate la that no collateral business
comes with the handling of the money as
Is had from other deposits. No Interest la
paid by the banks on money secured by
by government bonds.
Treasurer Brian said in his letter to the
bank era he had decided to raiae the In
terest rate after July L but qualified the
notice by requesting expressions from the
bankers as to their probable action In case
such an increase is demanded.
Replies hare been forwarded from the
presidents of all the larger banks of
Omat a expressing their hearty disapproval
and that they could not accept money at
the Increased rate, so it la highly probable
that all state money now held in Omaha
banks will be withdrawn July 1 unlesa the
state treasurer concludes that the contem
plated Increase ln the rate of interest was

Is a street car a frame building when Its
wheels are removed and it la used as a
lunch wagon on a lot within the fir.
This Is the question which is troubling
j Building Inspector Wlthnell, aa several
such cars are now la operation ln - tha
j eastern part of town and the inspector de-
sires to have them condemned and re
J moved. At firat U thought there waa no
J question of his authority over the d.lapi
' dated cars, and when a man opened a
. lunch wagon at Ninth street and Capitol
avenue the inspector moved it without
making any note of the matter. The next
day the car was back at Ita old stand and
the owner was ready to light the next at
. tempt at removal. Then the Inspector de
J sired to operate under the lawa governing
j buildings within the fire limits. He sub-
mitted the question to the legal depart
ment and the answer given by Assistant
City Attorney Dunn was a positive "No."
For this reason the car has held its ground
despite protests of persons who fear their
property Is threatened by destruction from
Cre through the presence of the lunch ear.
An attempt will be made to secure s
definition from the council which, for the
purposes of the inspector, will maks a
street car a frame building when it ceases
to move along the tracks as abiebodled
cara are wont to do.
A similar car at Twenty-fourth and
