Subcommittee Has Text of Measure
Ready for Discutsion.
Manlrlpal Securities Mar Re ArcepteJ
ia Baat-a for otea--Democratic
senators Hold All-Day
WASHINGTON. Jan. 25. When th "n-
a committee on ' finance meets next
Monday, Chairman Aldrich will be pre
pared to exhibit the perfected text of his
cursency bill, yunng tne recess oi inu
commlttro Mr. 'Aldrich has been engaged
with Senators Hale snd Allison and other
prominent republican members of the com
mittee in putting the finishing touches
upon the measure, and they held their
final meeting today. The new bill will In
no Vise be a cejuerture from the prln-
,, r,,,,,,.l- ,k. Htn.l mraaure made
in the committee and secondarily to S'ig-
gestlons from outsiders.
Among the more Important of tha
changes will be one accepting Senator
Bailey's proposition for the distribution of
the proposed surplus bank Issue among
tha various stales In nroportwn to their
t,onVtn- enntrnl and Biimlus. This feature
has been strenuously contended for by the
Texas senator and the republicans have
decided to concede it not only because
they consider it equitable, but also be
cause they think It will assist materially
In bringing democratic support, to the
measure when it reaches the senate. Sen
ator Bailey haa been engaged in prepar
ing a substitute bill In which this feature
ia given a prominent place and it Is not
yet determined whether he will desist when
the action of the majority membership
becomes known. It Is probable, however.
that he will go forward with hia own bill
for the present and until the retention of
the proposition Is assured.
Bond Security Section Amended.
Other changes, which it Is hoped, will
have a mollifying effect upon opponents,
both In the democratic party In the senate
and among western republicans, Is ono in
creasing the amount of extra circulation
allowed by the bill from $260,000,000 provided
by the first draft of the bill to t&
and another making radical changes In the
provisions In regard to municipal bonds
which the bill provides shall be accepted
security for the surplus issue.
As the bill stands it requires that cities
whose bonds may be accepted shall be
fifteen years old, have not fewer than
20.000 In population and shall not for ten
VAUra noire defaulted nn anv iKinded In-
debtedn.s,. ln the nw print all these re-
strictions and definitions will be eliminated
and the authorities thus will be permitted
to n upon , munlclp0 bonds upon
r time presented The
committee also will concedo the contention
that additional issues will be permitted to
.. -,. of ,. 0!nt of the market
vah.e of tlte hond. deposited instead of 7S
per cent as the first bill called for. This
iatter change was suggested by the terms
Qf th. orlf.lnaI BaUonal bank laws.
All these amendments are Intended to
circuiting medium, and. secondly, for more
liberal and equitable treatment of the
smaller and newer centers of population,
and the hope ia expressed that they will
have the effect of popularizing the meas
ure nd'flf expediting Its passage'. "' '"
One Important efect of the bill as It
Will be presented will be that' of making
the United States treasury directly re
sponsible for the payriient of ell bank
notes issued after the law goes into effect.
There la a popular Impression that under
the terms of the bill there will be two
kinds of bank notes one class such as is
now used and issued, and the other the
extra circulation to be Issued under the
new law. Mr. Aldrich characterises tills
as an. entire misapprehension of the in
tent of the measure. On tha contrary he
says that all the notes will be uniform
but that they will be different from the
notea now provided for. ' These specify
the deposit of government bonds to se
cure payment, and this specification will
be discontinued. In its place will be a
l-Bend to -the effect that the government
auarumeea 1110 puyiiieiu ul me iiulu.
"Thus," said Mr. Aldrich, "the new notes
will not only be uniform but the national
government will stand behind them with
in explicit pledge."

Douglas County Roads.
OMAHA, Jan. 22.-To the Kditor of The
Eee: The condition of our country roads
la a subject that interests every person
who has occaaionto travel them. There
fore, It is with hearty satisfaction that we
commend the work of the Douglas county
board during tho last two years. That tho
county commissioners exercised good Judg
ment in selecting Mr. H. R. Avery as
superintendent of improvements has been
many times emphasised by tho commend
able results obtained by Mr. Avery and his
corps of workmen.
A little more than two years ago the
country roads In Douglas county were un
repaired and at times almost Impassable.
During the last two yenrs .my defect has
been repaired as soon as practical after
becoming known.
I also want to emphasize the benefit
done our unpaved roads by dragging. Re
forp the roadway becomes thoroughly dry
after a rain drive over it with a drag and
you will be surprised by the result, besides
having the satisfaction of traveling over
a good road. . O. A. ELAKfcJLY.

Congratulations on Strong Fight.
FALL8 CITY. Neb., Jan. 23. To the
lOdltor of Tho Bte: 1 congratulate you on
Hie strong fight you are making for Taft
find the rank and file of the party In
Nebraska. The splendid victory that a
harmonious party gave last fall in Douglas
county la largely due to the splendid
efforts of youex-powerful paper and a grate
ful public should not overlook such an in
fluence when It offers a reward for faith
ful aervlcei rendered. '
As for the man. all fingers again point
to the "Buckeye" man. We have care
fully asked many of the rank and file
aa to their Vlioice and they all say Taft.
No coersion, no driving. Spontaneously
Teft the gigantic pillar In the Roosevelt
cabinet. It Is pathetic even to a grind
stone crank to read tho waitings of the
World-Herald arid Its agents for tho poor
downtrodden "rank and flic" of the G. O.
P., who are throttled in shouting for La
Follette. The lamentations of Daniel are
optimistic in comparison.
I.ct us not be led astray by these
prophets of evil. The "rank and file" of
whomo they speak consist largely of a
man ("Rank") in Lincoln and a paper
("File ") inOmahu. Beware of t lie "rank
and file" that Is sobbing for La Follette.
It bears watching. It Is now organising
Bryan volunteers at ten "plunks" per
capita. A very gauxy scheme to create
'Rah! for Bill Taft and Governor Hughes.

some of them haggard. They were of all
ages, from little tots Just able to make
the first grade up to high school size. Part
of the long wait they spent In singing.
Most of them showed little fear of the
pricking of their arms. Five or six little
girls fainted during the tperatlon. Ono
little colored girl became hysterical and

fashion, not being conscious of a word
he had said when she finally regained
control of herself. The city officials were
