Notwithstanding the repeated ruroora
of the consummation of the sale of the
SllO.m bond Issue to Oscar Allen of
Omaha, It now appears sa If the last
hope of the sslo haa gone glimmering.
The most recent objection to tha pur
chase of ths bonds waa mace yesterday
by Attorney Page of Omaha, who In
formed City Clerk Perry Wheeler that
his client would probably have to refuse
to accept the bonds In view of the fact
that there seemed to be an overissue in
the sum nsraed.
The hitch wsa traced back to IMC, when
from a number of bonds composed of
financial odda and ends, an Issue of
IllO.SSs wsa formed and floated. At the
time It Is said thera waa approximately
11,900 In cash which the city need not
have taken into the Issue. This tl,W, or
thereabouts, haa now Increased to a
sum said to be equal to something In the
neighborhood of U.aO.
It would sppear. therefore, that In the
present Issue of 1110.81 Is a call for an
overtssus. The real amount. It la said.
should not have exceeded tlW.OOO In all.
There Is considerable criticism of the
management that has put ths city In the
Yesterdsy evening Mayor Hocldr In
structed City Clerk Wheeler to notify tha
Allen attorney that an Immediate decision
aa to whether bo would accept the bonds
waa necessary In Justice to other com
panies who have made offers to the
It has been felt for some time that Allen
was nut anxious tu take tha bonds. At
torney Psge In bis statement to the city
officials yestsrday declared that ha bad
overlooked fifteen or alxteea minor ob
jections to tha bonds, but was Inclined to
balk at tha new development.
At tha time Allen agreed to purchas
the bond It waa agreed that a time limit
of ten day waa to be given tor the
consideration of ths bond histories. It
haa now sxtsnded Into months and tha
city Is paying Interest oa money loaned
by the banks to carry ths city over the
financial difficulties entailed by ths ma
turing of ths old Issue.
Bsld a prominent official yesterday:
"It la Just a case of more politics than
business In tha city government. Why
doea It happen that outsiders must Inform
the city of things that It officials should
hsvs known. Haa tha city so much
money that It la aot able to account for
tha KM0 that Is said to havs been draw
ing Interest for so long? And If wa have
that much money, why wsa tha council
told to float an Issu of U10.S), Instead
of I107.0W?" .
Word haa been received by Principal
Frank Cummlnga of ths South Omaha
High school that ths seventh annual free

ATLANTIC CTTT. N. J.. May 4.
Frsnklln MacVeagh. secretary of tha
treasury, tonight expressed tha belief
that tha house banking and currency
committee Investigating the money trust
would find an evolution In financial af
fairs tending towards a concentration
of larger power In the bands of a few
institutions or even of a few men.
Speaking here before the New Jersey
Banker' association, the secretary gave
his approval to the Inquiry launched by
tha house. A closer relation of finan
cial force, be declared, had resulted In
a huge measure from the panic of 1307.
when largev Interests entered upon a
policy of co-operation for self-protection
made necessary by the country's Inade
quate money system.

While the secretary favored the money
trust Inquiry aa a necessary atep In re
forming the banking and currency system
of the United States, be deplored the
fact that congress waa not contemplat
ing legislation on the basis of the plana
of the national monetary commission,
the general features of thla plan received
Mr. MacVesgh'a approval, but he criti
cised the fact that It did not forbid ab
solutely the ownership of national bank
stock by another national bank.
He declared that he had been recently
told that some of the "strong men" of
New York felt that any more monetary
legislation as wholly unnecessary, "be
cause they could themselves handle all
The secretary thought the Inquiry could
be performed adequately within a com
paratively short time.
The national monetary commission, he
said, had refused to deal with the ques
tion of the concentration of money power
and the house Inquiry was unavoidable.
Declaring that the monetary commis
sion's report recognised the right of a
national bank to own stock In another
national bank, tha secretary said: V
"It limits that ownership to si per
cent If the right of representation In the
National Reserve association Is not to
be Impaired, but we all know that It
might as well not limit It at all aa
limit It to per cent for in moat of the
corporations that are controlled It does
not in practice require actual ownership
of even 40 "per cent of the stock to be
actually Invested In the controlling
The treatment of this feature by the
commission Mr. MacVeagh regarded aa a
"grave and radical mistake."
