made last night at the banquet given by
tho Commercial club In Ills honor at the
club rooms. He said when he left Texas
to come to Omaha to tako his new posi

'waken those dead ones." '
"And so," said the guest of honor, "I'm
going to raise the Rip Van Winkles in
'Omaha, or as Bradshaw says, Tou "or I
will leave town.' And I want to say
that I'm here to stay. So it's your move."
Mr. Fraser pointed out that the Wood

.Omaha keeps an average balance of
31,000,000 In seven banks In the. city; em
Ploys 400 people there, and. has a pay roll

If he would move tho headquarters to
Chicago 'they wouid "give' him a larger

About 200 attended the banquet given in

to several largo cities for distribution.
