CALDWELL ONGUARANTY LAW
Omaha Banker Says law Does Not
Change Prior Conditions.
CONDITIONS NOW ARE IDEAL
Holds Act Imposes In just Burden
lpon Good Bankers Longr Time
' Before Actual Value Can
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 7.-(Special.)-The fol
lowing letter sent out by V. B. Caldwell,
vice president of the United States Na
tional bank of Omaha, is given out by
Secretary Royce of the state banking
board. It relates to the guaranty law
and is in response to an inquiry from a
banker of Seattle:
The guaranty law in this state seems
not to have changed prior conditions.
The national banks in the state cannot
trace any appreciable loss, of business to
the guaranty law and up to the present
time the law has not been in any way
detrimental to the general banking busi
ness. Personally. I am opposed to such a
law. The law has not been in operation
long enough to really test its efficacy.
One reason for its apparent success here
is that banking conditions in this state
are unusually sound and banking ability
throughout the state far above ths aver
age. Before the depository law we had
an excellent state banking law and had
then and have now a most excellent de
partment. That the measure has not
operated to the disadvantage of legiti
mate banking is almost ent'.rely due to
the efficacy of the state banking board,
good banking laws, close supervision and
the general excellent feeling prevailing
between the state banks and the state
The department has never in any way
been mixed up in politics or used its in
fluence to discriminate between state and
national banks, operating unaer uieae
almost ideal conditions it Will be a long
i a kAfAPA o ril v valued oninion can
be expressed as to the results of the law.
It has not served here as a cloak for
speculative or Impractical bankers; a con
dition due to the banking department.
The law imposes an unjust and burden
some expense upon good bankers. The
oretically and in principle it is absolutely
unjust. In this state it is not working
out- to the disadvantage of general bank
ing conditions because of the care exer
cised by the state banking board and be
cause of the intelligent and generally high
character of the state bankers.
This looks like a wishy-washy opinion,
but I believe it fair,y represents the con
ditions here a bad law, but in its prac
tical application working out better than
any of its opponents anticipated.
Prison Well Palls.
Land Commissioner Cowles visited the
penitentiary this morning to investigate
the new well, which is not giving the

tho other wells, there la plenty at this

come-up to the requirement.
Would IdTtnrt Pair Hate.

letter to General Passenger Agent L. W.
Wakeley of the Burlington, asking him
to make a change in the time of puttlns
Into effect th estate fair rate and make

day, September X This, will , enable peo
ple who desire to be present at the cere

vantage of the rate and would probably
enable state fair visitors to come to Lin
