millions of people in this corner of

Mr. Regan added: "The time has
come to put an end to the bickerings
between the railroads and their em

is sixteen months old today.
"But after we sit down and enjoy

When Secretary of the Treasury
W. G. McAdoo appeared at the Hotel
Fontenelle as t member of the Farm
Loan board, the guest of the Omaha
Commercial club, he was exultant. He
had just received a telegram from his
wife, the daughter of President Wil

private car from Lincoln. As the head
BOARD IN LINCOLN
Committee Sidetracked and
Farmers Are Called In to
KINKAIDERS ASK FOE AID
(From a Staff Correapordetit.)
Lincoln, Sept. 21. (Special.) The
Federal Farm Loan bureau hearing
Lincoln's claims here today, deftly
sidetracked the program of Mayor
Bryan and the local land bank com
mittee, and, instead put in more than
half the time listening to what vol
unteer farmers had to say.
"Our idea and our proceedure calls
for a hearing of farmers first, who
come from a distance all who want
to be heard, or who have any ques
tions to ask," William McAdoo, sec
retary of the treasury and ex-offici6
memeber of the board announced.
The hearing too developed into one
of information giving and was entire
ly ( informal. Nearly 400 people
crowded into federal court room, a
large number of whom were farmers.
Members of the board confidentially
remarked that it was the largest hear
ing held in any of the twenty-three
Aid to Kinkaiders.
Guy Drake, owner of a section of
grazing land near Wittman, told the
board he came to Lincoln this morn
ing tj raise a. loan from private
sources, when he Happeifed to hear "of
the hearing and thought he would at
tend. "Only a farm loan bank can save
us Kinkaiders," Drake told the boarM.
"I could not get a loan for less than
8 per cent." Drake said he had
wanted to borrow $10,000 to stock
his ranch. He said it was impossible
to make anything unless the men had
tunds to stock their land.
"We are Organized to borrow
money right away," said West Mil
ler of Ainsley, Neb., who came to
Lincoln as therepresentative of a lo
cal grange. "We are readv to take
$20,000 now," he told the committee.
Committee Talks Last
The local committee's Droeram
went through during the afternoon.
Secretary Mellor, Secretary Walter
Whitten of the commercial club,
members of the faculty of the state
farm and Lincoln business men, ap
peared before the board in sunnnrt
of the claim for a bank, ureine Ne
braska's agricultural resources, as yet
undeveloped, as some ot the speakers
put it, as basis for the claim.
The hearing was lareelv nonoar-
tisan. Farmers did not indicate their
preference between Omaha and Lin
coln m the hearing on the bank, and
the showing of most of the other
speakers' was strictly impartial.

Members of the United States Ma

The oil-begrimed fowls wandered
up and down the beach, crying piti

Paris Official Report Tells of
Capture of Two Trenches

RAIN HALTS OPERATIONS
Paris, Sept. 21. The French have
made another gain in the Verdun sec
tor, where they captured two trench
es and 100 prisoners south of the
Thiaumont work, according to an of

The communication follows:
"North of the River Somme the
enemy have not renewed their activi

Priez farm and the farm of Abbe
woqd. Bad weather has interfered
materially with operations on either
bank of the river Somme.
"In the Argonne an attack of the
enemy delivered upon our positions
at Four de Paris resulted in failure
because of our curtain of fire. This
attack was preceded by the explosion
of a mine.
"On the right bank of the River
Meuse our troops yesterday even
ing occupied several sections of ene
my trenches southeast of Thiaumont
work and captured over 100 prisoners,
including two officers. We also took
two machine guns. In the eastern
part of Vaux-Chapitre wood we have
advanced our line by about 100 yards,
while in the forest of Apremont one
of our advanced posts repulsed an at

Omaha's Claims for One of
Twelve Banks at Hear
M'ADOO E.TOLS THE BILL
Head of the Treasury Depart
ment Says It's an Act of
"SECURITY FOR FARMER"
ruralcredits bill, recently
adopted by congress, and signed by
President Wilson, is an act of long
delayed justice to the farmer, accord
ing to Secretary of the Treasury Wil
liam G. McAdoo, who arrived in
Omaha yesterday evening with the
Federal Farm Loan board, ot which
he is chairman.
The secretary of the treasury re
gards this piece of legislation as one
of great importance to the permanent
prosperity of the nation, giving the
farmer credit advantages and facili
ties similar to those enjoved by the
business mam and denied to the farm
er for so many years. The secretary
says the rural credits act is compar
able with, and even more important
than, the federal reserve act in the
field of constructive financial legisla
Function of the Bill.
"The farm loan bill," said Secretary
McAdoo, "creates a system under
which the farmers of the United
States will be able, for the first time
in the history of the country, to bor
row money on farm lands at low
rates of interest on long time, namely,
from five to forty years, and Dy
means of annual dues or installments
not only to pay the interest, bnt
also to retire tne principal oi tne loan
at maturity. This piece of legislation
is comparable in its benefits and in
the magnitude of the industry it will
affect, with the federal reserve act,
but it is in many respects far more
important to the country than the
federal reserve act
"It is a statement of an old and
recognized truth to say that the farm
ing industry is the very basis' of the
life and orosDeritv of the nation, and
this statement is more particularly
true of the United States, because of
its acricultura development which.
although great, can be made vastly
greater if our farmers are provided
with the long-time credits at low
rafi;of. interest, which are so essen
tial to the further development of
the farming industry. There is no
inducement to ereater farm develop
ment unless it can be made profit
able, and it cannot be made profitable
unless the necessary capital is avail
able always to farmers upon reason
able terms. It is amazing that since
the establishment ot our government
until this time, a period of 127 years,
absolutely nothing has been done by
way ot legislation to assure abun
dant farm credits on reasonable
terms to our farmers.
Says Fanners Suffered. .
"On the contrary, they have been
the preferred sufferers from a scar
city of money for farm development
and agricultural purposes, and have
been, as a class, particularly oppress
ed by high, and oftentimes extortion
ate rates of interest and shadowed
constantly by the fear of mortgage
foreclosures. The Farm Loan Act,
or rural credits bill, will emancipate
the farmer from the disadvantages
he has so long endured. It will, when
fully established, unquestionably pro
vide an abundance of credits, avail
able at all times, to farmers in all
parfS of the country upon long term
mortgages at low rates of interest,
with a provision for repayment of
the principal in easy annual install
ments. In fact, under the new sys
tem, the framer ought to be able to
pay the interest on his mortgage and
the principal of his debt through an
nual installments, which will be less
than the straight interest charges he
has been paying on his mortgage
under the old system.
Back to the Farm.
"The establishment of this rural
credits system will re-attractto the
tarms vast numbers of our people
who have been unable to en?acre in
agriculture because it has been impos
sible to secure money on tarm obliga
tions. It means for all the people of
the country unlimited benefits be
cause they will prosper i direct pro
portion to the prosperity and strength
of the. farming industry of the coun
try." Hearing This Morning.

QUOTES CLAY ON TARIFF
Lafayette, Ind., Sept. 21. Charles
E. Hughes, addressing his second au
dience of the day in the open air
here today, outlined the policies for
which he stands and declared that
he wanted to see in the United States
"a great driving force of patriotic sen
timent," which would furnish the mo

"I want American rights protected
throughout the world," Mr. Hughes
said. "I desire to see a great driv

unless we have that loyalty and love
for our country which will enable us

for arbitration of industrial disputes.

Mr. Hughes went into detail con
cerning his tariff views. He quoted
Henry Clay in support of his decla
