CASHIER ELLIOTT MAKES HIGH JUMP IN BUSINESS LIFE Graduates from Paper Hanging to Running Farmers' State Bank at Decatur in Very Brief Interval. INDIANS HELP HIM ALONG Profitable Work Loaning Them Money Gives Him Needed Capital. ULES BUYS DEPRESSED STOCK (From a Staff Correspondent.) Decatur, Neb., May IS. (Special.) "How did Cashier John E. Elliott f the Farmers' State bank of De catur ever got into the banking business?" is a question freely asked by people in Decatur and other parts of the state who have become interested in the meteoric career of this banker, whose banking career was. suddenly checked a little over a -week ago when the State Banking board closed the doors and took complete charge. Six years ago or so, John E. Elliott of Decatur was a painter and paper hanger. Suddenly he appeared as cashier of the Farmers' State bank, in a year after that he declared a div idend of 50 per cent, and was paying 5 per cent p depositors and some times 6 per cent to favored depos itors. Takes a Promotion, Well, when Mr. Elliott had painted and hung paper about as long as he felt a man of his abilities should be engaged in such a task, he went to Rosalie, Neb., and went to work for his brother-in-law, Ted Johnson, in the Farmers' State bank of Rosalie. At Rosalie Elliott was used as an "outside man." In other words, he 'worked as a kind of "field man," par ticularly among the Indians of the reervation. Many bankers of the ectioii around the Indian reservation do more or less business with the Indians, and many of them carry a good 'Veal of Indian paper. Indiana His Customers. So Elliott was the field man among the Indians. He was the fel low who negotiated the loans among the Indians and traded and dealt with them lit various ways. Here he accumulated vast stores of information and vaster funds of ex perience in banking and in dealing with Indians. He became more and more shrewd in these dealings, and in the meantime he began to amass little wealth. The business there was profitable. Soon he began to have ambitions to be head of a bank of his own. About this time, in the early part of the summer of 1914, when the Farmers' State bank of Decatur was not doing especially, well, the State Banking board recommended an as sessment of .15 per cent on its capi tal stock to help the little institution along. This, of course, waa before Elliott came into the life of the bank, Aaseasment Levied. This recommendation was made by the etate board after Examiner E. II. Maloney had reported the condition of the bank to the state board and had found some bad paper there. His examination was made about April 1, 1914. The director, of the little De catur bank levied the assessment on the stock, and it was all paid except on about fifteen shares, the holders of which either had no money or re fused to pay up the assessment. N'ow, Elliott came upon the scene. lTp to this time he had been busy making his fortune trading 'with the Indians and acting as "field man" for the Rosalie bank. When he heard of this assessment of 35 per cent he knew a number of shares were held in Sioux City. In fact, the bank had been started by the Live Stock National bank of Sioux City in 1908, as a branch bank, and much of the stock was still; held in that city. Sioux Cityans Sell. Elliott now made a trip to Sioux City, went among the stockholders of the Decatur hank there and had a talk with them about the 35 per cent assessment. He used this assessment talk to depress the stock, and, in (act, it was not necessary to depress it much, for the imi City men were (I'millnm-d on 1'aa To, Column Kim.)

AHMED BANDITS AT PROGRESO San Antonio, Tex., May 15. In formation indicating a plan for the resumption of raids across the inter national line near Hrownsville, Tex., has reached army headquarters here and will, it is expected, cause a con siderable strengthening of the force now patrolling that district. General Funston and his staff will study in detail today the proposed reorgani zation 'of the entire border patrol, and it was indicated that the Thir tieth infantry, coming from New York, would be sent to Rio Grande City for service between there and Brownsville, the district so fre quently raided a year ago, Official reports from the officer commanding gave no additional news of the activities of armed Mex icans opposite Progreso, Tex., but their presence there was in line with reports made by both agents of the Department of Justice and agents of the State department. No apparent anxiety regarding the position of the little force that en tered Mexico near Iiottiillas was in dicated at headquarters; Colonel Sibley is commanding only four troops of cavalry and a machine gun company, but army men here believe that he would have no difficulty in withdrawing if menaced by a su perior force. Sibley Asks for More Men. Marathon, Tex., May 15. The ex pedition in search of the bandits who committed the Glenn Springs out rage has checked its dash into Mex ico and is now awaiting reinforce ments before pushing on, according to reports rfceived here today. A message has been sent to General Funston by Colonel Sibley, com manding the Fourteenth cavalry, it was learned here, asking for aid, Military observers here point out that Major Langhorne and his flying squadron of the Eighth cavalry are now perhaps J00 miles beyond their base without sufficient troops to pro tect their line of communication. Marathon the base, is ninety miles distant from Hoquillas over broken country. Several instances have been reported the last few days of bandits cutting in behind the expedition with out meeting armed resistance. Supplies of every character are now being rushed from Marathon to Ho quillas, there to be transferred to pack animals for Sibley's expedition. Mexican teamsters are engaged in this work under Captain John S. Chambers of the quartermaster's de partment. He reports the Mexicans faithful to" thrir trust. No supplies have failed yet to reach their des tination. The two Mexican prisoners brought into Marathon by Sheriff Shoemaker from Boquillas last Satur day night will be sent to Alpine for trial for murder. Unusual Honors Paid to Memory of Jewish Mark Twain New York, May 15. The memory of Solomon Rahinowitz. "the Icuisli Mark Twain," was honored in un- usual fashion at his funeral here to day. A procession of more than 3,000 men, women and children fol lowed the funeral cortege through the streets of the east side, which the poet had often depicted in prose and poetry. The crowd which had gathered at the synagogue was so great that it was impossible for the bier to be taken into the building and the fu neral prayers were read by the rabbi from the steps. Rabbi J. L. Magnes, in opening the funeral services, read Rabinowiu' will. In it the author pleaded that his family mention his name only with laughter and stipulated that each year one of his "most joyous stories" was to be read at a family gathering.

The Ameri can government is preparing a pro test characterized by officials as "very vigorous" against the interfer ence witlr mails to and from the (.'niter! States by Great Britain. A note to be sent forward in the near future will take the position that the United States can no longer counte nance seizure and detention of mails to and from the 1'nited States, par ticularly those concerning neutrals. The reply recently received from Great Hritaiu to the last American note protesting against interference with American mails is considered unsatisfactory. Protests have been made to the government by1 many individuals and firms who have been injured by the frequent long delays in mails. The subject is under detail study at the State department and Presi dent Wilson has derided to make representations to Great Kritain as quickly as a note can be completed. The British government will be in formed that the L'nited States con siders it imperative that its present policy be modified.

President Asks Wescott to Make Nominating Speech Washington, May 15. President Wilson has asked John W. Wescott, attorney general of New Jersey, who made the speech nominating him at the Baltimore convention, to make the nominating speech at St. Louis. Mr. Wescott has accepted. He con ferred today with the president. When the president asked Mr. Wes cott he did not know that the New Jersey delegates on the same day had selected Governor Fielder. In view of the president's wish to have Wescott it is expected the governor will withdraw. Mr. Wescott is a candidate for senator from New Jersey, opposing Senator Martine.

The sub-committee, which recommended that the prohibition against these diversions be removed, announced it would sub mit a minority report to the confer ence.. All of the western railroads re ported temperatures as low as 30 de-, grees above zero through western Ne braska, South Dakota, Wyoming and Colorado Monday, with a brisk wind blowing from the northwest. The Burlington road reported a fall of two feet of snow throughout the Black Hills country Sunday and Sunday night, with clearing weather Monday morning. There was snow reported at most of the stations in the western part of Nebraska, with four inches at Belmont. On the Bill ings line one to three inches of snow was reported from Alliance, north to beyond Sheridan. Along the Northwestern the snow fall of Sunday and Sunday night cov ered an area approximately 100 miles wide through northern Nebraska and up into South Dakota and from cen tral Wyoming as far east as Inman. On the Union Pacific there was one to two inches of snow from North Platte to a considerable dis tance west of Cheyenne, Wyo., with light flurries over the branches tiorth and south of the main line. There was also considerable snow through the eastern portion of Colorado. Temperatures during the night dropped to below freezing. Heavy Rains General. During Saturday night anil most of Sunday heavy rains were general over the whole of the state, with the ex ception of a narrow strip along the Missouri river. In the west and north this rain turw-d to snow. In many places in the- state the rains were torrential, more than an inch being the rule. It was rain of long duration, and coming so gently j did not wash the soil badly.

WAR-TIME PRICES PREVAIL The development of potash and its by-products will soon he one of Ne braska's chief industries, a pure arti cle having been found at Hoffland which necessitates little else than pumping, boiling and drying to, make the best portion ready for the refin ery, after which the finished article brings the heretofore unknown price of nearly $500 per ton. That is the reason for the opening up of this lit tle City as a full-fledged station on the Burlington. Easy Process at Hoffland. In other potash workings, espe. cially in the kelp beds of Utah and Southetn California, the cost of re ducing the pure potash from the sur rounding valueless ingredients makes the marketable product expensive. The much easier process at Hoffland assures a permanency of operation, for while the war cut off the supply from Germany, the return of this competition can only mean a slight reduction in profit. The natural ad vantages here, combined with the ex tensive and up-to-date equipment, preclude the possibility of future dan ger from foreign competition. . 1 he plant has hectl in operation i for a year.

Bailey, Who Waa Captured With Casement, is Placed on Trial with Him. STATEMENT OF CROWN LAWYER London, May IS. Sir Roger Case men!, who only a few years ago achieved international fame for the services he rendered his government in the exposure of the Futumayo rwb her atrocities, today faced the bar In an ordinary police court for a pre liminary examination to determine whetTier he should be held for trial on the charge of high treason against the same government in connection with the rebellion in Ireland. Beside Casement stood Daniel Julian Bailey, who faced a similar charge. Not in many years has so much popular interest been manifested in a rase before the courts. This is not due only to the prominence of Casement ana to peculation as to his ultimate fate, hut also because it has been expected evidence would be produced which would lay bare a widespread plot resulting in the re volt. There was sn unexpected number of applications for seats in the little court room, but admission was re stricted to about 100 persons,, includ ing representatives of the press. Sir Horace Plunkett Attends. Among Ihe earliest arrivals in the courts was Sir Horace Plunkett of the department of agriculture in Ireland, He took a seat near the magistrate. It was understood Sir Horace was merely a spectator and would take no part in the day's proceedings, A number of relatives and friends of Casement, including seven hand somely gowned women, also reached court at an early hour and were pro vided with seits well to the front, ' Sir John Dickinson, who oresided. ihe lawyers and the witnesses all had taken their places before Casement arrived at 10:41) o'clock and entered the dock. Kvery face was turned in his direction. Sir KoRer maintained much of his characteri'tic complaisance. He smiled and nodded as he saw friends in the court rootn. With him was Daniel Bailey, an Irish soldier cap tured by the Germans early in the war who went from Germany to Ire land with Sir Roger. Given Green Uniform In his story of the manner in which Casement set about raising an Irish brigade, among prisoners in Germany to fight against England, the attorney general said the pris oner had met with little success. Such men as he won over wereset free, provided with green uniforms and received rewards. When the attorney general de clared that one of the Irish prisoners had struck Casement in the face on being asked to join the brigade, Case ment smiled disdainfuly. Bailey was one of the prisoners seduced by Casement, the attorney general said, and was made an officer of the. brigade. ' Second Prisoner in Dock The spectators were considerably surprised when a second prisoner was placed beside Casement in the dock. This man was Daniel Julian llailcy. a private soldier whose home Jis at Wembley, a village near Lon don. Hailey was arrester! near lra lee, Ireland, April ail. He was jointly charged with Casement with high treason, but his exact connection with the Sinn Feiuers has not so far been made public. In the formal charge Casement is described as of no occupation and no fixed abode. The charge against both defendants reads, "lor that they did on the 1st day of November, 1914, and on divers other occasions be tween that day and the allst day of Aptil, l'r)i). unlawfully, maliciously I and ttaitorously commit high treason ; within and without ihe realm of Fng I laud in contempt of our sovereign lord, the king, and bis laws, to the evil example of others in like case and contrary to the duly and alliance of the aut drieiidattts " ttoriiey ticneial Sir Frederick F..
