yesterday afternoon with' the Introduction
of evidence of entrymen tending to show
they had made their entries In good fallh
under the Chicago ranch compact. Some
of the witnesses afterward became mem
bers of the Chicago Kancli company and
some of them had made from IBuO to 1600
worth of Improvements on their prop
erty. The government rested Its case at noon
and the defense at once filed a motion
to exclude the evidence of the old sol
dier. William K. Marvin, from the record.
The court overruled the motion and the
defense began the introduction of testi
The first witness for the defense was
John L. Walters of Chicago, who was
one of the early entrymen under the al
leged Chicago ranch compact, lie stated
that he hud made hla entry In good faith
and Intended to comply with all the re
quirements of the laws relating to home
stead entry. He paid all of his own ex
penses and made an effort to make im
provements on the land. The only Inter
est that he had with Mr. Balrd was to
secure him to make the location for him,
as he wus Ignorant of land conditions
in that territory. He personally solicited
Mr. Balrd to make the location for him
and later visited the land. He became a
member of the Chicago Ranch company
as a measure of -mutual protection and
inado the entry for his own personal use
and benefit. He subsequently relinquished
the claim because he became satisfied
that lie could not(comply with all the re
quirements af residence and because of
the general conditions then prevailing In
that country. He paid all hla filing and

Women's'. Mearinp flpparei
Captain Dexter L. Thomas has Just re
ceived from the Treasury department under
date of October 1, 1908, a treasury warrant
for $1.59 In settlement of a claim that has
been pending since April 14, 1891.
Captain Thomas hsd originally filed a
claim for a portion of $100 bounty due him
from the government that was promised In
It&Sj He received $26 of this bounty and
was later promoted to the tank of first
lieutenant and it waa apparently claimed
by the government that his promotion
barred him from further rights to the
bounty. There were a few ' other minor
claims due him that had never -been fully
settled, Including certain commutation
allowances. In any event the claim ad
justers of the War department finally de
cided $113 was due him and then they
proceeded to maka some offsets. These In
cluded some sort of a tax, possibly an
income tax, and he waa charged; with the
tJ5 bounty he had received before hla pro
morion and other offsets brought the
amount down to $4.B, for which the Treas
ury department after seventeen years and
six months has sent him a warrant.
Captain Thomas Is still guessing what
it is all about, particularly that feature "of
the case that assesses a tax against him as
a soldier and why it Is that a soldier should
be debarred from receiving bounty prom
ised him, merely because he waa a good
enough soldier to be promoted an officer.

Swedes and Banks.
KEARNEY, Neb., Oct. 8. To the Editor
of Tha Bee: The World-Herald still main
tains that it waa correct when It claimed
that tha Swedes In America send money to
Swedish banks for safe keeping. To prove
thla It quotes from the postmaster general's
report, that durlnir the fiscal year ending
I, June SO, 1907. ever $72,000,000 was sent to
Europe In postal money orders.
If this proves anything in regard to banks
t It proves that these foreigners have no
mora confidence In European banks than
ln American banks, and therefore Invest In
postal money orders as the safest, being a
government affair, and It helps the con
tention of the postmaster general that we
should have postal savings banks, that also
being a government affair which would
tytd to keep some of this money In this
Vuntry in the hands of the government.

'versy with the World-Herald, but it was
I really- the flwAllali hank, mnA their relation
to the Swedes In America that was dis
cussed In the World-Herald's former edi
torial, which I dubbed somewhat foolish,
and this quotation from the postmaster gen
eral's report does not change my opinion
on that subject. I venture to say that If
the World-Herald raked this country over
with, a fine tooth comb It would not find

a course would be simply foolish. A cltlsen
of this country would naturally desire to
use his savings In this country, and if he
does any business with a bank It Is, of
course, with American banks.
There come to this country every year
many laborers from southern Europe, who
do not coma with the Intention of becoming

regard as a small competency, then the
vine-dad hi Us and sunny climate of their

orders payable In their own name or In the
name of a wife or dependent In the old
country (they seem to havs no more confi
dence in their own banks than they have
In aura), and It Is these people that account
for tha large postal money order business.
lt year ar larger number of them re
turned to Europe than at any previous
tuna. Doubtless that accounted for the
slse of the postal money order business last
year. If bank deposits were guaranteed
that postal money order business would
diminish only as that class of Immigration
