One of the first advantagea which the

unfortunate fellows by contributions.

He said: "1 have known wealthy men

how to give, who devote a great deal of
time conscientiously to investigating the
objects of their charity, but who make a.

DENVER. Colo.. Sept. IT. More than
J.000 bankers, representing all classes of
financial Institutions and every state In
the union, will assemble here this week
at the thirty-fourth annual convention of
the American Bankers' association. Hun
dreds of delegates are already on the
scene and It Is evident from their con
versation In the hotel corridors that the
liveliest eesslon since the memorable one
of 1996 is expected. This yesr the gur
snty of bank deposits probably will be the
principal topic of discussion. Another
subject of vital Interest that will be dis
cussed at. length Is that of currency. The
association was not satisfied with the
Aldrlch currency bill. The Currency com
mission of the American Bankers' asso
ciation, which drafted a measure of its
own only to see It rejected by the lead
ers of congres". will make Its formal
report at next Thursday's session and
delegates then will be given an opportunity
to express their views on the subject.
Billa of Kndlnsi. j
The reports of the legislative commit
tees and the committees on cxpreus com
panies and bills of lading, which will bo
made at the opening session on Wednes
day, will present other topics of general
Interest. The association ha been try
ing for several years to prevent the ex
press companies selling money orders,
while the alleged failure of the railroads
to safeguard bills of lading also has been
the subject of much contention, both In
the courts and before congress and the
Interstate Commerce commission. It Is
practically certain that the convention
will empower these committees to con
tinue their respective contests.
A number of speakers of national prom
inence will participate not only In the
sessions of the convention proper which
will be held on Wednesday and Thursday,
but also of the Savings Bank and Trust
company sections on Monday and Tues
day. Pierre Jay, bank commissioner of
Massachusetts, will deliver an address at
the meeting of the savings bank section
and the proposed postal savings bank law
will be analysed In the report of a spe
cial committee appointed for that pur
pose. "The Kffect of the Recent Panic
on the Kustern Saving Banks" will be
the subject of a paper by John C. Grls
wold of New York. Governor Henry A,
Buchtel of Colorado and President Wil
liam E. Hughes of the Continental Trust
company of Denver will deliver the ad
dresses of welcome to the trust company

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Sept. 27.-(Spe-
clal Telegram.) -Every republican leader
who has talked with Mr. Taft since his ar
rival In Minnesota has brought the Infor
mation that this state Is absolutely safe
on the national ticket. None of the leaders
estimate the republican plurality at less
than 40,000, and most of them have told Mr.
Taft he will have a margin of from 60.000
to 70,000 votes.
More systematic work for the republican
ticket haa been done In Minnesota than any
other state which Mr. Taft has visited.
There are t.SOO precincts In. Minnesota and

To supervise this woik five men have
been appointed In each of the eighty coun
ties. The speaking campaign Is being con
ducted with vigor and intelligence. Every
night meetings are being held In country
school houses, where apples and cigars are
served. In the smaller cities lawn meetings
are held at private homes and the Issues
of the campaign discussed. Taft marching
clubs have been organized in every county.

nesota Is normally republican by 80.000, the
personal popularity of Governor Johnspn
is very great, but this year he is running
against a strong man, whereas two years

Four years ago and two years ago John
son drew most of his republican support
from tho Scandinavians. The republican
nominee for governor this year is Jacob
Jacobson, a Norwegian. Both democrats
and republicans admit that In the contest
between "Yon" and "Take" the former
will get the Swedes and the latter the Nor
wegians, and that the vote will be close.
Jaoobson Is a rough-and-ready sort of
man and has a legislative record second to
no man In the state and Is making his
campaign on his record. His friends speak
of hlra as the "original progressive law
maker." Minnesota republicans have escaped the
bitter factional troubles which have af
flicted Wisconsin and Iowa, and they are
united this year on the national ticket. Mr.
Taft will continue his speaking campaign
through the state. The republican cam
paign managers were greatly pleased with
hla speeches and have assured him he can
go to the Dakotas firm In the belief that
Mr. Bryan cannot make substantial Inroads
on him here.

DALLAS, 8. D., Sept. 27. Because of the
fact that a great many maps purporting to

of the several government townaites, Judge

TRAINMEN ARE NOT CONTENT
l ii Ion Pacific Kmployes Contend
Terms of Aareement Are Not
Information has leaked out of alr-tlght
quarters that relations between the Cnlon
Paclflo and Its trainmen are not wholly
amicable. Tho trainmen are aggrieved at
certain alleged violations of the terms of
ogroeinent entered Into by them and tne
company recently and are talking of sn
open breach unless their grievances can
be redressed. Matters are working along
natural lines, slowly,, but surely and very
quietly, and It Is understood that unless
the company takes some action to correct
existing conditions the trainmen may feel
called on In a month or six weeks to take
The trouble Is said te be on the matter
of freight train schedules, with reference
to time and pay for overtime. Certain de
tails of the recent agreement are said not
to be lived up to by the company and this
Imposes hardships on tho men. But the
trslnmen are free to assert that they do
not hold the higher officials responsible
for this state of afflars as yet, as they
are convinced the superintendent and gen-
eral manager are not aware of what Is
going on. Tlrey say the fault lies with I he j
rtjordlriMe booses", wbd have exceeded
the limit of their authority. It Is the In
tention of the trainmen, however, to carry
matters to the highest authority unless
they can secure what they consider fair
treatment from their lower, "bosses."
Since the so-called business depression
of last fall the length of freight trains has
been gradually Increased and so has the
work allotted lo each trainman, and there
fore his period of service has stretched out
longer than he thinks it should. These
are some of the faults he alleges need
NEW CLASSES FOR CLERKS
Yonngr Men's Christian Association
Will Ulve Onportnnltr to Learn
The Inability of many employes in cleri
cal capacities to spell ordinary words In
every day use and to add up a column of
figures has caused J. W. Miller, educa
tional director at the Toung Men's Chris
tian association, to announce that a week
from today he will Institute classes In spell
ing and rapid calculation. Tho classes will
be held during the evenings at the asso
ciation rooms and, as Mr. Miller says. It Is
believed they will meet with what seems
to be a great need.
In a letter to the editor of The Bee Mr.
Miller has the following to say of his pro
posed classes and what he hopes to accom
plish by them:
From time to time I have heard remarks
from employers and business men generally
about the Inability of their employes to
spell the ordinary words In every day use
or to add up a column of figures. Having
heard so many of these remarks and be
lieving that there Is a need for soma class
Instruction In these two subjects I am or
ganising a class In rapid figuring, cover
ing addition, subtration, multiplication,
division, fractions snd applications of per
centage. Including partnership. This course
Is specially a lis pled to clerks In the Cnlon
Parlflo and Burlington headquarters, book
keepers, bank clerks, high school and bus
iness college graduates and those destiirur to
take the examination for employment with
the Cnlon Pacific and Burlington rallroada.
The class In spelling Is somewhat on the
order of the old-fashioned spelling, but
more extensive. It Inrludes the spelling,
pronunciation, meaning and use of -about
1,600 useful words. One hour each evening
and two evenings a week will be given to
drill on ' these words. This class should
appeal to every young man and a great
many business men In Omaha.

water, the health authorities anticipating
a serious epidemic of contagious diseases,
and many small streams dried up snd
praetlcslly obliterated, the drouth of 1908,
which has held western Pennsylvania,
eastern Ohio and West Virginia In It
grasp for more than two months, remains
unbroken, each day . gradually Increasing
the seriousness of the unpredecented situa
tion. While In the Pittsburg district the water
supply Is sufficient to carry on all busi
ness, the low stage of the rivers has caused
a congestion of much coal In this vicinity.
Every available barge and float has been
loaded with coal and at present, with al
most 20.OHO.000 bushels In the Pittsburg har
bor, the river coal mines have been com
pelled to shut down for the wsnt of ship
ping facilities. There are about lo.OftO min
ers employed In the river mines along the
Monongahela valley. This great fleet of
coal Is for supply of points In tho west and
south and the probabilities are there will
he a coal famine experienced, especially
In the northwest, should conditions prevent
the shipment of the coal Vetre cold
weather sets In.
In West Virginia lumber plsnts. glass
factories and Iron and steel mills located
along the rivers, are closed on account of
insufficient water. In eastern Ohio the
same conditions prevail, and It Is feared
the great iron and steel mills at Youngs
town. O., employing over 20,000 men, will
have to suspend operations unless the
drouth Is speedily broken.
In all sections of the dry sone prayers
are offered up dally and these prayers will

Such a daylight parade has never before
been attempted or even thought of as a
tart of the week's festivities. It took
the. mind of a Gould Diets to conceive
11 and work out the details. In the pa- '
ride wii be worked . out many of thti
ideas he secured while dolnj the lam) of '
ligypt, when he as King Ak-far-B n
iilll was the guest of the. khedlve. ThU
parade will be one or the real big features,
If not the real feature of the week. To
all other daylight parades It will occupy
the same position as the electrical pageant
does to other electrical parades. Mr.
Deltz has been several weeks working out
the detail.! of tho gorgeous psgeant, and
those who contemplate coming to tho
Imperial city to see the electrical parade,
will get their money's worth If they come
In time to see the Deits conception Tues
The lectiical pageant Wednesday night
will be superior to former electrical ra

proves. The floats will tell a familiar
story this year and every float is pat.
