I Local Interest relative to retrenchment
; by ths railroads ha become overshadow sd

1 Information come to Omaha that in and
I srout d Chicago and at all other point
where any l.rge number of men are em
ployed a vote is being taken on the question
of whether or not a strike shall be declared.
It Is said that not only are the men voting
on thi proposition, but are also voting on
the proposition of forever lemalning out
unless their organization are recognised
by the company.
! Illinois Central trainmen coming into
, Omaha are very reticent over the prospect
1 of a strike, maintaining that tn the event
' one Is orucred it will be of long duration.
If the men should go out. railroad officials
here express the opinion tnat it will not
extend to other Harriman lines, coniend
! lng that on them the greateat harmony
! between officials and men sow exists.
So far aa retrenchment ot the L'nion

lieved that tbe end has been reacned. All

TAFT TO REYIEW BANK CASE ;
Relation of National City Bank to
Subsidiary Company Involved.
TWO CABINET OFFICERS DIFFER
Attwraey Or era I llellevea Holdlaa; of
Mark la Other C'oiasiaales by Beak
Is lllrsral MeeVeagh Takes
WASHINGTON. Aug. 23 Secretary Mac
Vearh will not make any derision at this
time upon Attorney General Wlckeraham
report, which holds that the relation of
the National City bank of New Tork and
the National City company mav be a trans
gresRlon of the national banking laws. Be
cause of what 1 believed to be a difference
of opinion between the two cabinet officers
all the paper tn the case will be sent to
President Taft at Beverly.
That President Taft would review the
case developed suddenly today as Secretary
MacVeagh was ready to make public the
attorney general's findings and his own
d eels. on. For that reason he declined to
give any intimation of hi position, but It
is known that nearly all his advisers feel
that If any definite attitude toward the
extension of the influence of national banks
Into trust companies and securities com
panies were announced at this time, the
whole question of financial legislation
might be entangled when it comes up at
the next session of congress with the mone
tary commission report.
Mr. Wlckersham's findings deal directly
only with the reported holding by the
National City bank of other bank stock
througt, the medium of the National City
company. The question of the interest of
national banks in trust companies arose
aa a consequence of three findings, and
i oireoieo to in u.r
I holdln of th Continental-Commercial
' N"-'-loJ nf Chicago. In the Conti-
Ileniai ana commercial a rust cuuipKiir
Attorney General Wlckersham takes the
position that centralisation of banking
companies might take place If national
banks were allowed to acquire the stock;
of other hanking Institutions. The Treas
ury department for about ten years has
been tacitly approving such relationship
with certain limitations. In order that the
national institutions might meet the com
petition of state banks, which usually
ojerate under very liberal provisions. Aside
from the question of the public policy,
Secretary MacVeagh's advices, it is said,
that no provision of the national bank act
has been violated.

Dr. Kichter was enfrared in mapping on

between Turkey and Greece, under the
auspices of a German geographical society

on May 25. The capture took pace Inside
Turkith territory and hi escort of Turkish
gendarmes was killed. Letter from La'.tos,
the bandit leader, demand. ng a ransom
were delivered by Turkish villagers.
The German government acted promptly
and a small army of Turkish soldiers was
sent in pursuit of the bandits. At the
same time representatives of the German
government and of the geographical so
ciety scoured the mountains, taking with
them the gold for the ransom of the doctor.
For weeks the search was without result.
Recently news dispatch es stated that the
pursuit had neen abandoned as It bad been
learned definitely that Richter was held
in Tiranovoe on Greek territory in the
bouse of one iHvyannis. The news dis
patches alto Insisted that the doctor, like
Miss Ellen Stone, the American missionary
who wa held by a Bulgarian band In 191
for IG6.O00. had been captured not by ordl
rary mountain brigands, but by the Greek
National society, the capture being or
ganized by Captain Strati, formerly a
Greek officer who once lived in America,
and that the affair was an incident of the
border warfare between detachments of
Greok and Bu'garians.
The ransom, it was assumed, wa destined
to further the parti sun warfare breaking
