great International bank concerns said
that the metal probably would be landed
at Bar Harbor and returned to New York
Officials of the line said that the Cecilia
had not been ordered back to port from
thia side of the Atlantic
. Officials of one of the big banks here,
which was shipping more than (3.900.309
in gold oh the liner, expressed great dis
appointment over its return. Some of
them said frankly they would be glad
if the vessel had been captured by the
French. In such an event, they thought,
the French captors would have seen to it
that the metal reached Its destination.
Arrangements were being made today
for the return of the gold to New York.
Apparently all efforts to have It shipped

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Aug. 4.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) An old tit or y that has been told
at almost every session of congress for
the last ten years was told today to Cato
Pells, commissioner of Indian affairs, by
Senator Hitchcock and Congressman Lo
beck, wherein they asked that Omaha be
n.ade one of the three permanent In
dian lupply departments provided for In
tho Indian appropriation bill which be
came a law on August 1.
If any city ever had to fight for an
Institution created by the government it
has been Omaha to retain the Indian
supply, depot Every Omaha men.Vr
and every senator Interested In Omaha
has been compelled to fight off ambi
tious towns that desired an Indian supply
depot In Its particular locality.
Senator Hitchcock had to defend Omaha
when a member of the lower house, so
bad John L. Kennedy and lJave Mercer
and now Lobeck. The Indian supply depot
at Omaha has been a foot ball of politics
and now democrats are called upon to
retain the depot at that place.
Statistics Show ip Well.
Commissioner Sells was surprised at
the amount of goods purchased and in
store at the Omaha warehouse. He admit
ted that the service had been excellent,
but asthe bill, which was signed by the
president on August 1, limits the number
of permanent Indian warehouses to three

Piled stores to the Indians under .former
sets of congress, It will readily be seen
that Omaha Is "up against It," for St.
Louis, Chicago and Ban Francisco are
candidates) as well as New York, which
makes the running hard.
Congressman Lobeck eald he expected
a decision in a short time, but he was
not optimistic as to the result.
Appeal fop Assistance.
Congresman Lotieck today received a
telegram from Henry . F. Wyman of
Omaha, asking his to use his friendly
offices with the State department In get
ting Into communication with Charlea H.
Brown, also of Omaha, who Is at pres
ent in Austria, presumably in Vienna.

ties particularly for relief, In view of the
fact thai there farms were burning up
because of . lack of water and he made
demand upon the government to turn
the Impounded waters of the Pathfinder
dam on to these lands.

was necessary to prevent Irreparable loss
by drouth. He stated to the secretary
that he had advices that ten Irrigation
organizations in the counties affected
had filed applications for water under
the Pathfinder dam and he though that
humanity, would warrant the secretary
of the interior in straining a point and
turning on the water in order that the
