BLOOMINGTON, III., Oct. :. -(Special.)
The farmcra out In my part of the coun
try are doing more talking about Bryan'a
plan to compel th banka of this country
to guarantee each other's deposits than
about any other plank in the democratic
platform, If not all the other planks com
bined. Being a plain farmer. I naturally
look at this from a farmer"a atandpolnt.
When this scheme wss first proposed It
looked mighty plausible to me and I aald
to rnyslf that It would certainly be a fine
thlr.jr for the people to fel they could
walk Into a bank no matter how big or
how little and plump their money Into It
with the comfortable certainty that, to
all practical purposes. Uncle Sam was
standing right there at the receiving tel.
er i window, counting in the money and
saying: "I am back of thla proposition
and you have my pledge thla money will
be (Paid rck to you when you want It."
Proposition Attractive at Plrat.
Thla Is Just the kind of . a vision that
comes before your eyes when you read the
democratic platform and read or hear tho
speeches of Mr. Bryan, Senator Gore of
Oklahoma and the rest of the ailver-
tong-ued- spellbinders of the democratic
ranks. And by talking with my neighbors
and friends and listening to the discus
sions on the streets and In the stores of
our town I have discovered that I am not
the only republican who felt, at first blush
that this scheme for guaranteeing bank
deposits was about the most plausible and
perauaslvb thing that tho4 political plat
form makers, have aprung on ua for a
But the only thing: that troubled me
right ut the start, before I aettled down
to think the thing out for myself, was the
source from which the proposition cornea.
While It looked mighty good to me, I could
not help but remember It waa offered by
the same man who had tried to work off
on the American people a whole lot of
other allyer-plated political novelties, like
the 16 to 1 automatic cash coiner and the
simple little device for tho regulation and
control of railroads whereby Uncle Bam
was to be the greatost superintendent of
the big trunk lines and all the amall roads
wore to be parceled out to be run by the
Recalls Bryan'a Former Fallacies.
Tt has been rreatedly said that Mr.
Bryan possesses a marvelously simple and
childlike nature nnd that he will never
grow old. When I think of hla proposition
to parrel out the control of tho great rail
road propertlea of this country along the
lines laid down In that big speech of his,
which he made In New Tork after his re
turn from Europe, I am ready to believe
too much cannot be ssld on the score of his
simplicity, Ms chlldllkeness, and hla In
ability to grow up
Ho, I Bay. even at the outset and while
I liked the looks of this scheme to guaran
tee bank deposits by an act of congress, I
could not get away from the fact that I'd
a good deal rather have the proposition
handed out to me by some persons who had
not atooiT on the street corners, under a
gasoline torch doing sleight-of-hand tricks
and selling political novelties that were run
down, out of date, and on the retired list
In less than twelve months from the time
This unusual feeling about the source of
the suggestion forced me to sit down and
hold a session with myself to see If this
offering from Mr. Bryan was the real thing
this time or just another silver plated po
litical novelty that looks mighty fascinat
ing under the flare of a gasoline torch, but
han the same Incompetent Insldes under
neath the plating that Mr. Bryan'a other
dream packages have contained.
Blestest Faileres Political Banks.
The flrat thing that came to me out of
my cogitations was the fact that it la a
mighty big and ticklish proposition to
Jump right In and put a political saddle on
tho back of every national bank In the
country. It occurred to me, offhand, that
the biggest banks that have gone to smash
of lata years have been what the newspa
pers have called th political banks those
I whose officers have close political associa
tions and have mixed politics with bank
ing. Home Instances of wrecked banka of this
kind that come to my mind on the spur of
the moment are th Walsh banks in Chi
cago, the Dougherty bank In Peoria and
the Allegheny National bank. If this Is
fair sample of the kind of mess which
comes from mixing politics with banking
t want to keep my own money as far away
from the bank that la traveling under a
political aaddle aa I can, and it seems to
ma there la no us denying th plan pro
posed by Mr. Bryan and his followers will
put -the banks under th political aaddle
to a much greater extent than they now
Proposition Merits Careful Htndy.
Again, when you coma to think of it
soberly, this scheme to jump In and compel
the banks of the country to guarantee each
other's deposits is fooling with a mighty
big proposition; for the deposits In national
banks alone averaged last year tt.319.U3S.OnOO.
It Is the bigness of the thing Itself and the
consequences Involved in any kind of a plan
to tinker with It that should make every
sane man in the country stop short and
ask himself the question: Has this thing
ever he?n tried out?
It was that question which brought me up
standing. Right then and there I began to
do a little thinking and a little lnvestlgat
Ilia. For one thing, I found out that the
average annual percentage of loss of de
posits In national banks, ream 18H5 to 196,
compared with the average annual deposits,
is only one-twentieth of 1 per cent.
Now, that looks to me as If the national
banks are doing pretty well Just as they
stand, and that their depositors are not
entitled to do much kicking on the score of
security. When you compare thla with the
percentage of loaa which men have to Buffer
In bustnosk and other Investments In which
they put their money, it looks decidedly
But the kernel of th whole business
seems to me to be that to endorse Mr.
Bryan'a plan is to run contrary to every
rule and law of common sense and ordi
nary business prudence and put our whole
capital, so to speak. Into something which
has not been tried out first and about which
no one knows anything from actual experi
ence. If a farmer went ahead and put In
his crops and kept hla liv stock on this
principle he would be the laughing stock
of the whole community.
Take th matter of wheat, for example:

The National Com expcsttlon, which

It Is believed this notification of Mr.
Miller's rflecta the action of all the roada
and la but the forerunner of similar an
nouncements by the others.
The news Is teeeived by the corn show
mann-rer with much gratification. Last
week C. C. Rosewater, J. Wilkes Jones of
the exposition and J. K. Buckingham, as
slstant general passenger agent of the
Burlington, went to Chicago and had con
ferences with the pasuenger representatives
o fthe roads on this subject and received
favorable consideration. Messrs. Roeewater
and Jones laid great stress upon the Im
portance of securing favorable rates and
were accorded the most encouraging re
ception. In fact, they came laek to Omaha
believing that they would certainly get tho
rates. So, whilo the announcement of the
Milwaukee comes a day earlier than was
expected, the corn show managers are
elated. They count this one of tho really
large agencies that will count in the re
sults of the exposition. Without reduced
passenger fares It Is admitted the exposi
tion would lack one of the moat important
elements of success.
These rates, spread out In blanket fash-
Ion over the vsst territory covered by the
Western Passenger association roads, will
apply to millions of persms and cover the
corn belt thoroughly.
CHANGE IN ARMY COMMANDERS
General Carter Mar Sneered General'
Morton la Omaha First
Th contemplated change In military de
partmental commands that have been In
abeyance for over a year are liable to take
place about January 1. 1909. These changes
contemplate th transfer of Brigadier Gen
eral W. H. Carter, now In command of
the Department of the Lakes at Chicago,
to the command of the Department of the
Missouri at Omaha, with the transfer of
Brigadier General Charles Morton to' the
command of th brigade post of Fort D. A.
Russell, Wyo., and contingently upon hla
later assuming commund of the Depart
ment of Colorado.
This general change was announced a
year or more ago and rested upon the re
turn of Major General Ionird Wood from
the Philippines. General Wood was to
have relieved Major General Fred D. Grant
in the command of the Department of the
Atlnntlc, and General Grant was to go to
Chicago to assume command of H De
partment of the Iakes, relieving General
Carter, transferred to the DeivartnierX of
the MIsHouri. General Wood lius been on
leave !n France since his rHurn from the
Philippines, and Is now abcut due on his
return from hi leave to assiun- command
of the Atlantic department.
Tho prospective changes will not hav
ar.y material effect on the personnel of the
Department of the Missouri staff, these
general change having been made early In
the present year.
