" WJjjDON, Feb. 5. The bombardment of

proceeded without interuptlon today,
A report was., spread that the 'Bulgar

for twenty-four hours so as to give the
Turks garrison an opportunity of sur
rendering. This, however, appears to bo
without foundation, as arc many of the
stories spread broadcast in reference to
conditions around and in the beleaguered
A message from Belgrade, Servla, this
morning speaks of the "1eorI0 conduct"
of a couple of Servian regiments which
participated ln an attack on the outer'
clrclo of forts. There Is no means of
verifying this or any other reports, as
such fighting as may be In progress is
taking place behind closed doors so far
as the outside world is concerned. De
pendence has to be paced on the 'mora
or less biased stories given out by the
respective army headquarters. Only on
extremely rare occasions can a news

Stockmen are much concerned over
the fate of the wolf bounty bill lntto
duced by Mr. Wlndlcmnn of Converse
county, which carries an appropriation
of .'S5.O0O. The bill was returned to tho
hpuse from the live stock committee with
an adverse recommendation. When the
matter Is taken up in the committee of
of tho whole, the cattle and sheep Inter-';
ests will make a .lesperate effort to
have tho bill put through even though
the appropriations should be cut down to

over Senate Kile No. 6, by' Mr. Christ- I
tnan, which purports to be a pure food

Introduced at the Instigation of outside .
oil companies and that Its real purpose
Is to harass the Midwest and Franco- j
American oil companies which have re- j
flnerlcB at CaHper. Wyoming. So strong j
has the feeling become that there Is 1
some sort of a "Joker" In the bill, that
when It was discussed by the senate com- ,
mlttco of the whole, several senators
declared that they wanted to know more
about the measure before passing It.
Senator Sullivan declared that It looked
as though nn attempt was being made
to discriminate against Wyoming com

laid over, without prejudice, until Friday.

Loan to Farmers in
Violation of Law
WASHINGTON. Feb, 3.-Cliarges that
national banks throughout the. south
openly violate the natlcnnl banking law
by loaning money on real estate mort
gages were made by Sol Wexlur, a New
Orleans banker, today before the house
currency reform committee. He told the
committee the national banking law
should be amended to legalize loans on
real estate securities and said he knew
of banks ln Louisiana. Mississippi and
Alabama loaning their funds on real
estate, to accommodate farmers. He rec
ommended that such loans be legalized
and limited to eight months paper to
allow the farmer to "make his crop."
"The farmer Is the only man who Is
not allowed to take his stock ln trade
Into a national bank and secure credit
upon it," said Mr. Wexler.
