One Not Heard From.
There was a lively contest yesterday
smong four boys as to who ahould get th
prlss for finding a balloon sent up from
the Auditorium by the management pf the
Elks' fair and which alighted near For
tieth and Hamilton streets.
Clarence Swan was on the spot and se
cured the certificate attached to the air
voyiger, but three other boy a pounced on
It about the same time and the quartet
appeared en maese at the Auditorium to
claim the prise, which was a valuable
pockelbpok. Swan carried the credentials,
however, and carried off the trophy. Soma
of the balloon have not been heard from.
One which carried the moat valuable prize
la thought to have dropped in the river
and ha not been een. '
Testerday was bargain day at the fair
and many of the patrons secured valuable
articles for little money. It cost Q. H.
Bchoedsack Just ten cent ti annex a fine
cut glats dish, while Herman Mets secured
an olectrlc chafing dish and C. F. l.etson
became the owner of a stein for the same
money. There was a number of other
bargains equally as good.
The only five and ten cent bank In
Omaha Is located at the fair, and F. J.
McShane, Jr., la cashier. The purpoe of
the bank I to furnish patron of the fair
with small change, and the idea that those
who are conducting the finance of the
fair belong to the Order of Buffaloea and

Statewide prohibition In Kentucky msy
be to most people a bright dream the ful
fillment of which is remote, but Mrs. Lll
llan It. N. Stevens, president of the Na
tional Women's Christian Temperance
union, says she counts Kentucky most
likely to be the next stste to adopt pro
hibition. Nebraska, Ohio. Indiana and Mis
souri she list with the hopeful also.
Mrs. Stevens and Miss Anna Gordon, vice
president of the National Women's Chris
tian Temperance union, arrived In Omaha
Thursday morning from Evanston, 111., for
a fortnight's conference with local temper
ance workers in preparation for the enter
tainment of the annual convention of the
National Women's Christian Temperance
union, to b held here October 22-2? this
Mrs. Stevens Is frank to confess there

the meeting place of the convention this

hard for It, but prospects for results were
brightest in Nebraska, ao it invitation was
. Mrs. Stevens counts prohibition In Ten
nessee the signal victory for the cause the
last year and claims for the Women's
Christian Temperance union a share In
bringing it about.
"The national convention was held at
Nashville two years ago and -its educative
force waa felt throughout the state." ah
Mrs. Stevens laughed at the cry againtt
the . o'clock closing law.
"It is a step In advance," she said, "and
we believe that where there Is the senti
tnent to enact such laws there will be
Bentiinent enough to enforce them. Such
regulation Is right, and if it does not work
out well make a change in your officials
Instead of the law and see what that will
do for you.
I.Ike the Kaox BUI.
Mrs. Stevens and Miss Gordon count the
Knox bill the most effective national
legislation that has been projected in .the
interest of temperance and while it is
still far from what they hope ultimately
It Is a vast Improvement and will materially
strengthen the work In prohibition states
"We expect the Omaha convention will
be the largest ever held," Mis. Stevens
said. "The Women's Christian TemDeranc
union is the largest woman's organisation
in the world and every delegate at Its con
ventlons represents a constituency of 600.
There will be at least 600 delegates at the
Omaha meeting and at least 1.000 visitors
are being planned for besides. Ex-Oovcrnor
Glenn of North Carolina will be
one of the speakers. The meeting of
the executive board of the union will Im
mediately precede the convention. This
body has. 130 membera and carries an Im
portant Tart of the work."
Mrs. franco B. Heald. president and
several other offlcera of the Nebraska
Women's Christian Temperance union, will
come tn Omaha Friday morning and spend
the rest of the week here in conference
with Mrs. Steven and Miss Gordon. Sun
day they will go to Lincoln for a day or
two. but will return. They have apart

E. F. Felda and J. C. French, repre
senting the Interests of the South Omaha
rational banks, expect to go to Washing
ton to wait on the comptroller of the cur
rency on the matter of the application of
the South Omaha banks to make South
Omaha a reserve city. It Is understood
that some of the Omaha banks protest
against this action and urge the comp
troller to withhold approval of the peti
tion of South Omaha pn the ground that
the two cities are practically one and make
use of the same clearing house.
The comptroller, according to dispatches.
has decided to give a hearing aa soon as
the South Omaha representatives cm ar
range the date pf the same. Vntll that
time no action on the application will be
J. C. French of the South Omaha Na
tional bank said. In explanation yesterday
afternoon: "The advantage of making
South Omaha a reserve city Is this: Na
tional banks In cities of less than 26,000
population are required to keep a IS per
cent reserve of their deposits. Of this sum
three-fifths Is kept in the vault of the
bank and two-fifths, at the option of th
bank, may be deposited In a reserve city.
Any city which has the consent of three
fourths of the national banks may apply
for the privilege pf becoming a reserve
city, provided the population la over 26,000.
It msy be resdlly seen from the large busi
ness done In the state, from South Omaha
aa a center. It would be to the advantage
of country banks to deposit their reserve
In South Omaha to meet conditions of the
live stock market.
Protest Come aa Barprlse.
"We applied for the privilege some time
ago and had no Idea that any of the
Omaha banks would enter an objection.
Most of the South Omaha banks are affili
ated with national banks In Omaha. Th
point to the. objection seems to be thai
South Omaha and Omaha are under the
same clearing house association. Undoubt
edly, If South Omaha becomes a reserve
city, It will draw off some of the reserve
now enjoyed exclusively by the Omaha
Mr. Folds and myself expect to start
for Washington as soon as we hear defi
nitely of the date set for the hearing. I
presume this dste will be about Saturday."
F. W. Clark, cashier of the Union Stock
Tards National bank, spent part of the
dsy Wednesday in the office pf the city
clerk preparing data for use before the'
comptroller to show the volume of busi
ness done In South Omaha, as revealed
by the clerk's record, and the claim which
the banks of the city advance for recognition.
Ughtlng Bids Passler.
The city council Is to have a special
meeting as a committee of the whole
ome time before the close of the week
to Investigate the lighting proposition.
The new company has apparently the ad
vantage of the bid for the city lighting
by 15, having placed a bid for tho public
light at $70 per arc. ' It I unknown,
however, whether the ew company In
tends to enter the field of commerciil
lighting. If not, the Omaha Electric
Light and Power1' cotrlpkny come for
ward with the argument fhat the royally
now paid on private ' lighting would
amount to 17 per lamp for each public
light. This would make the bid 2
cheaper than the bid of the new company,
to say nothing of the taxes to be pal.l
by the company which has so large a
system of private distributing lines.
The new company offer to produce
commercial current for 12 cents per
kilowatt hour and 6 cents excess, while
the Omaha Electric Light and Power
company offers the current at 14 cent3
and 6 cents.
If It Is the Intent of the new company
to produce commercial current In com
petition with the old company it will be
obliged to pay a royalty of S per cent
of its gross earntnga. It is likely that
the new company will make It clear to
the council before the matter Is tsken
up in the committee of the whole Just
how far it will aeek to supply commercial
If the new company gets the contract
the old company will be relieved from
paying the royalty and will be able with
out loss to reduce about i of a cent
the price to the consumer. But with the
advantage of an established system the
Omaha company would doubtless meet
any price proposed.
Adair In (loath Omaha,
Lou Adair wa lodged in the South Omaha
Jail yesterday. lie i said to be chief of
a gang of daring men who have broken
into and robbed many freight car in
Omaha, South Omaha and suburban points.
He wss captured with a number of hi
associates a few nights ago while making
away with a wagon load of meat, which
was secured In South Omaha. Thla capture
was made near Papllllon on the Papio. The
Sarpy county authorities and the railroad
secret ervlce as well as three or four
Omaha detectives figured in the capture,
which was an exciting chapter. A revolver
battle occurred, In which twenty-five shots
were fired; In spite of whlhh no one was
hit. and one of the suspected men escaped.
Since the car of meat was broken Into
in South Omaha, Adair waa placed In the
South Omaha Jail and will be arraigned In
police court as soon as the county attorney
fixea a time. Adair said yetterday that
he would waive his preliminary hearing,
but wanted an attorney, so that the bond
might be made as low aa possible. He sal. I
he could furnish a reasonable bond and
did not propose to lie in Jail.
As the Isiter days of the fourth month
of 1909 approach. It appears that the South
Omaha market Is to show gsins in receipt
for the year, if the splendid gait of the
last two months Is kept up. Already the
receipts In sheep show an Increase of over
80,000 head. This gain has been Heady
from the first of the year. January and
February showed a big decrease In hog
and a moderate decrease In cattle over
19US. For the first time yesterday the de
crease in cattle was wiped out and the
comparative statement shows a gain of 60i.

nearly 200,000, has been cut down
