Mr. Oraf has practically the name Ideas
about what the proposed banking bill

i Especially Is the defeat humiliating to
'Mr. Bryan, for the reason that he had
tf. Hall out at Falrvlew and read the
riot act to him; gave the banker his or
ders to be carried out Instead of tak
ing orders. Dr. Hall proceeded to give the
presidential candidate his own Ideas about
' legislation affecting banks. It wss pre
! dieted at tbs time that Mr. Bryan would
have to surrender to Dr. Hall, snd the
, result shows that rather than have an
open rupture behave up his Ideas for
; the "Immediate" psymen of losses In case
of a'bank failure. Surrendered principle,
; a It were, rather, than have an open
rupture with .Dr. Hall, for there Is no
' doubt the presidential ' candidate had a
majority of the democrats In the hollow
Of his hand.
, . To secure the place for Oraf Is was neces
sary for the democratic caucus to defeat j
W. J. Taylor of Custer county, who has
; already demonotrated great ability as a
leader of the majority.. Mr. Toy lor has
some Ideas of hla own about the banking
.business and he Is strictly opposed to any
limit being placed upon the liability of the
'banks to make good the losses by fslluree.
jThe bankers naturally desire a limit fixed
; as to the amount of money which they may
i have to contribute annually to the guaranty
fund. Taylor wants, all losses made good
, and a levy on the banks at the time of
failures sufficiently high to create a fund
to pay all the losses. Governor Shsllcn
berger wsnts thst levy limited to not more
than i per cent of the deposits In any one
year. According to Mr. Taylor, the fund
' would be wiped out by the failure of one
of the large city banks. 80 Mr. Taylor had
to be sacrificed.
Mr. Graf has yet to be confirmed by the
-caucus and before that by Mr. Bryan, so
It remains to be seen whether the presl
dentlsl csndklata has the. fight In him to
t change this chairmanship.
3 Hre Is what Mr. Graf had to say about
1 the guaranty of bank deposits:
The mstter of Immediate snd prompt
payment of losses wss threshed out at the
'Denver convention and there Is no neces
sity for any division bere. It wss proposed
I: at Denver that the word 'Immediate1 should
i be Inserted In the platform and a big fight
was the result. Immediate payment was
; turned down and prompt payment substi
tuted. 80 fsr as I am concerned that Is
! sufficient for me. I shall stand for a bill
providing for, prompt payment of losses In
jchm of a bank failure."
Mr. Hrvsn. in nis ttodiic
through th press.- has Insisted that pay
'Vicnt must me -"Immediate.".; Dr. Hall has
v'hiolsted that ' "prompt" , payment would bs
J'sion enough. The next move is up to Mr.
. . Incidentally, while there Is not a demo
'trst here sufficiently brava publicly to say
'a word against the dictation of the presi

Shoemaker came up from Lincoln as soon
aa the house adjourned for the recess Fri
day afternoon and handed out Interviews
in which he said he was at peace with all
men and was happy that he was alive. The

announced that he had been let down and

Hnsaaa History Bears a with, "ays
Rev. Job a A. Soykrr.
"Tho Significance ot tho Holy Bacrament"
waa tho subject 'of the discourse of Rev.
John A. Spyker at Trinity Methodist 'church
Sunday morning. . .
"Slnco tho beginning of the world's hta
tory a mighty contest has been waging
between right and wrong," said Dr. Spyker.
"Human history Itself began With a trag
edy. The blood of Abel Is crying out to
this day against the Influence and power
of sin. Sin has caused all the bloodshed,
Immorality and commotion In aoclal life;
It Is the csuse of all schisms and ecclesV
astlcal divisions, the cause of every ache
and pain of the body and mind or of the
Immortal soul. Sin Is ths mightiest factor
against every good and perfect thing.
"Righteousness under the leadership of
Jesus Christ Is battling against sin. The
oppression of the Jews In Egypt was ths
result of sin. God sent a leader down
among them and punished their oppressors,
even to the destruction of the first born
of the Egyptians, because the rulers of
Egypt would not let the people of Israel go.
"It was Christ who Instituted the ordl
nance of the Lord's Supper, the bread In
dlcatlng His broken body and the wine His
blood. The Inception of bread, from aeed
time to harvest, the crushing of tho grain
In the mills to make the flour, the working
and kneading of the flour to perfect It Into
the loaf, and the baking of the bread in
the fire heated oven was typical of the
preparatory period for the Lamb of God
before Hs should be submitted to the final
sacrifice for the redemption of men. So it
was with the preparation and crushing of
the grape to transpose It into the perfected
wine. Christ was spat upon, maligned
slandered, crushed and broken and at last
died on the cross of a broken heart; yet He
asked that His persecutors be forgiven for
'they know not what they do.'
"Bo when we again declare ourselves aa
Christians by this holy ordinance of the
sacrament In partaking of His broken body
and precious blood, let us consecrate our
selves anew to His service, knowing that
all wo have or hope to have, that all we
are or hope to be was purchased by His
blood and that wo belong to Jesus Christ
henceforth and forever."

The report indicates Inadequacy of the

barred by the statute. The smuggling of
Chinese Into the United States goes on, al
though many are apprehended In the vicin

Of the Chinese arrested 88 per cent were

Every effort has been made by the bureau
to prevent the smuggling Into the country

In this work over previous years.
The report urges the government to take
effective means to prevent the congestion

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Jan. 9. (Special Telegram.)
Holmes of Douglas county got sat down on
so hard by the committee on committees of
the house that he went home tonight with
sore spots all over himself.
He went into the meeting with a well de
fined , idea of what he Intended to do, and
couldn't do it The pace waa so hot for
him that before the meeting was over he
refused to vote on committee actions, but
merely passed with the remark:
"If there Is anything left over give it to
There was nothing left over to amount
"The fact of the matter Is," said a mem
ber of the winning faction, "the Douglas
bunch came In here when we went to or
ganize with the dirtiest tactics known In
politics, and won out. They expected to do
the same thing In naming committees, and
got fooled. We farmers know how to get
together occasionally, even If we were not
prepared when the organization was af
fected. We treated Omaha fairly enough,
and a whole lot better than the delegation
The minority report Holmes Is talking
about. It is predicted, will never be made

Object to Sheldon's fiss,
.GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Jn. 10. (Special)
Much exception Is taken Lire to the rec
ommendation of Governor Sheldon that all
new buildings for soldiers' homes should be
erected at MUford, on the ground of alleged
better, sanitary conditions. Governor Shel
don stated that he based the recommenda
tion upon the death rate at the two homes
In this city and at MUford and no expla
nation was added that the home In thla
city is provided with much more extensive
hospital facilities and has been drawing, it
Is claimed, a larger percentage of the vet
erans and tbelr wives or widows entirely
enfeebled or In advsnced stages of Inva
lidism. The greater death rate. If such
really exists, it Is asserted, Is the result of
conditions with which the present home has
nothing to do. It Is asserted the conditions
at the local home are no more unsanitary
than they are at MUford.

experts that, since ths passage of the law
enabling cities having volunteer fire de

The meeting was presided over by Charles

was attended by about forty members.
The principal subject under discussion waa
the proposition for a municipal court for
Omaha and the tentative abolition of the
offices of Justice of the peace. No less
than three bills aro now pending In the
legislature on this subject. Representative
Walter P. Thomas was present at the meet

stated that he believed all of them were
susceptible of Improvement, so fsr as con
cerned their ability to stand the test of
constitutionality. Mr. Horrlgan presented

referred to the Judiciary committee:
Resolved. That tho Orraha Bar associa
tion nndorse the establishment of a muni
cipal court in the city of Omaha, believing
trat It will tend towara a more errioient
administration of Justice than obtains
under the present system of Justices of the
The question was discussed at consider
able length and was finally left with the
Judlclsry committee to report at a later
Ela-atter Reads a Paper.
Charles S. Elguttor read a paper on the
subject of "A Citizen of the United
States." He showed that the constitution
while It provided for the government for tho
citizens of ths United States, it did not de
fine the qualifications of a citizen, nor did
It make any provision therefor. He held
that the question of citizenship was a
matter wholly within the province of the
several states, and elaborated upon the
peculiar distinction between territorial and
stato citizenship. "The status of United
States citizenship was materially changed
by the Dred Bcott decision " said ho, "and
was again completely changed by the adop
tion of the fourteenth amendment to the
constitution, which gave the right of
citizenship to the negro, but even then did
not change the reletion of the dual citizen
ship aa shown in national and state citizen
ship. Citizenship comes through the states
and not through the nation, although thi
strong arm of the national government Is
at all times ready to protect and assert
the national citizenship wherever the rights
of the citizen are menaced."
A vote of thanks waa extended Mr. El
gutter for his paper and a motion
mas adopted that more of such papers be
lead before the assoclat'on.
Tho retiring president, Mr. Gosa. thanked
the association for Its loyal support and
courtesy during the year, stating that the
honor of presiding over the association was
ono that he would always cherish.
A light luncheon was served.
