treat bankers received advices (rem high
political leaders that tha tatter were
well satisfied, from various political eom
binationa already made, that tha coa
ventlona of the twe loading parties would
name Roosevelt and Bryan as opponents
In ths presidential race.
Tha situation had beea meat thoroughly
canvassed. It waa declared, and all ether:
candidate la either party had beea
finally eliminated aava the two ' old
rivals Tha statement waa alas added by
these aam bankers who have perbmpa
good reeeo tor feeling aggrieved at
Roosevelt, thst et the two men tbey
would prefer to see Brysn win. Ths ar
gument to that Roosevelt long age out
did Bryan la radicalism, that ha would
go further by far than the Nebraakan
ever went In efforts te overturn existing
systems of finance and government and
tha Judiciary system, and that moreover,
Bryan had become greatly settled and
sobered in character and opinions, hsd
dropped bla' aid free eilvtr heresies and
could b depended a poo, in a crisis, to
refrala from advocaUn disturbing and
radical changes fn the law or govern
mental policies. In other words, he Wss

The spectacle of Wall street financier
turning to Bryan to aava them from
Roosevaltlsm Is both touching and novel,
and the above program, which baa been
outlined ta th Financial World by a
seriously minded representative at one
ef the greatest banking Institutions of
th country, seems peculiarly Startling,
but stranger things have happened. We
venture to suggest, however, that ths
politician who ventured to disclose the
reside program to Ihe Wall atreat finan
ciers are counting on possessing more
power or Influence thsa tbsy really en
Joy. He wiuot. Indeed, be a Napoleonic
ruler in pplltlcal affairs who can thus
sarly say that Roosevelt and Bryan srs

A telegram of General U. S. Grant et
great historical Importance hi te be sold
at auction In New Terk City. It I dated
at City Point. Va., October li, 19M, la
addressed to Gsneral Sherman, and reads
in part as follows:
"On reflection 1 think batter df your
bropositlon.'t will b much better to go
south than to b forced to' com north.
You will no doubt clean ths country Where
you go of railroad track and supplies. I
would alas mov every wagon, horse,
mule and hoof ot stock, a well as ths
negroes. Ae far aa arms can be supplied
. I would put therh in the hands of
th negro, men. Give them such organisa
tion aa you can. They will be ot soms

Now" th significance ot this It that
General Sherman' commander deliber
ately ordered that policy of laying waste
the country which General Sherman fol
lowed In hi inarch to the aea, that be
gs almost at enos. For this policy ef
ruining th territory In which he sper
ated. Csnaral Sherman . haa ever sines
beea severely criticised, partly because of
th operation of th "bummers" who
followed his' troops. It is still the custom
la many sections of th south te lay at
hla door any and all loa of property.
What Sherman did on hi march to th
aa, Sheridan did ta the Shenandoah,
ravaging that wonderful granary from
which Lee's armies draw te large a por
tion of their food each year, until Sher
idan made good hi threat that a crew
fly trig ever. It would have to carry hut
rations on hi back. Ia Orsnf s telegram.
ol ted above, we have the clearest proof
that after three and one-half year of
warfare, he, too. had come te the con
clusion that the most humane methods of
Hot Days Are Coming
, The unprecedented demand for Fans dur
'ing tbe hot spell last year exhausted the fan
stocks of all Omaha dealers, and many people
had to go without fans because they waited
' until the thermometer exceeded 100 degrees

TTe cannot predict what the demand will
be this summer, but now is the time to exer
cise a little foresight by preparing for hot
days and nights that will in all probability,
be with lis again.
