BUTLER ANDRYDER IN ROW
Rumpus in Council Meeting Over In
terest on City Deposits.
ALL THE BIDS ARE REJECTED
Dnnka JVott Pay the City Two Per
Cent nnd Ilntler la Fltchtlng to
Get Another Unit Cent
City Commissioner Dan B. Butter's at
tempt to force the local banks to pay as
much Interest on city money as they do
on state funds deposited In them created
a rumpus at tho council meeting In the
committee of the whole, resulting In Com
missioner J. J. Ilyder declaring he would
make Butler look like a "ninny" Tuesday.
Butler was urging that bids for city
money bo again advertised- for, when
Ityder moved that all bids received1 bo
placed on file and that no action be taken
In regard to the bank that offered a
fourth of 1 per cent Increase. Butler pro
tested: "Seo here," said Ryder, "we've got a
right to our votes."
"Sure." Butler said, "but look"
"Oh, you'ro a great financier, 1 know."
"I know what I'm talking about"
"Yes, and I'll make, you look like a
ninny tomorrow morning."
"At that I would only look like a ninny
ono day In the year."
Ilyder in Mnke Stntentent.
Byder's statement will go into the de
tails of his expenditures as street com
missioner. A statement from the comp
troller's office showed, without explana
tion, that Ilyder had spent, something
like S1.600 more In the same length of
tlmo than his predecessor. Ityder
blamed Butler for tho statement
When Butler Insisted that the city
ought to have more Interest on its
money and that now was the time to
force the banks to pay it Ityder said:
"People we make clerks are not going
to come around four-flushing to us what
to do. I move that this report be
placed on file."
"You'ro trying to build political
fences," said Butler.
"And If I am I Intend to build them
by myself and In my own way."
Mayor Dahlman scolded Butler and
Byder and the tension was relieved.
"At that it didn't raise the fuss I
thought it would," Butler said, closing
The council voted to place tho report
on file and reject all bids.
Banks now pay the city 2 per cent
Interest. Butler argued that at least
2'4 per cent should bo paid.
DEPOSITS OF STATE BANK
PASS THEMILLI0N MARK
Deposits In tho State bank of Omaha
have passed tho Jl.000,000 mark and are
.still Increasing rapidly. The State bank
is Omaha's newest banking institution,
but it has been popular ever since Its
opening. Competing with other banks,
all of which aro national and of more or
less long life, the officers of the State
bank were confronted with a rather dif
ficult task. But they buckled down to
work and In a remarkably short time
were enjoying large deposits. Now they
have over Jl.OCO.OOO on tho deposit books,
and the amount Is constantly growing.
A balcony has been Installed to give
needed space for conducting the Increas
ing business of the concern. Tho addi
tion gives the Institution more room for
the bookkeeping and auditing depart
men'ts and has been placed in the rear of
the room occupied.
Tho officers lay considerable stress upon
the bank's success because It Is organized
under the "guaranty of deposit" law.
Albert U Schantz, president! J. R, Cadn,
Jr., vice president, and Cashier F. N. High
are all enthusiastic about the outlook
ami anticipate that the crops of the state
are going to do much this fall toward in
creasing the Omaha clearances.

One contractor said he could answer that

In Boxcars to Haul
In anticipation of bumper crops along
tho Burlington In the mlddel western
states, all of the available box cars of
that railroad are being moved to the
western states, to be ready for the record-
making crops which will start to move
about the middle of the present month.
WIthtn four weeks it is believed that
all of the box cara not In use on the east
ern 'divisions of the Burlington will be
brought west to tho agricultural states,
where bumper crops are promised this
season. Every side track along the Bur
llngton routo In the agricultural states
will bo filled with box cars in anticipa
tion of the rush of grain which Is ex
pected to start about the middle of July.

"During the years that I lived In Kan
sas I have never seen anytning that
would approximate the crops In Kansas
this year," said Mr. N. H. Loomls. "In
every field I saw, tho wheat was higher
and better developed than It has been In
Kansas for many years, and there Is no
chance for Kansas to make less than
a record-making yield this season. The
Kansas hard wheat Is famed the nation
over, and the quality nnd quantity aro
both liable to set a new standard for the
United States this year."
Crop reports from tho Burlington, as
well as the Northwestern railroad, indi
cate that every crop In Nebraska and the
contiguous territory is In better condi
tion than It has been for many years.
General heavy rains throughout Ne
braska and other mid-west states has
shown the small grain crop to be In bet
ter condition this year than ever before.
