of farmers and Implement dealers call
annually at the company's Omaha of
'ice than at any one of the other
. branch houses.
Peter Jansen, Beatrice, asserted
that while he does not live in Omaha,
and has no property interests here,
. he sees reasons why Omaha is at the
, logical place for locating the bank.
E. Stoddard, well acquainted with
the farm tenant class, asserted the
land bank would put the renting class
into the position of farm owners. He
added that there are 50,000 young
men in this state who want to get
'.' on farms, but are afraid to try to buy
, under the present loan conditions and
, Thomas Millett, Gregory, 5. D.,
said the necessary local associations
to negotiate the loans could be
formed in his localitv within thirty
days after the banks are established,
and that the operation of these banks
will be a great help in the develop
ment of that newer region of country.
Interest Rates Now.
J. B. Grinnell, Papillion, secretory
of the Nebraska Farm congress, gave
the results of his investigations as
to rates of interest paid now in Ne
braska on farm loans. He found one
place not fifty miles from Omaha
where 10 per cent interest was being
paid on a farm loan. He gave his
own experience of asking to have a
loan renewed, being promised a re
newal at 6 per cent and then being
charged 6 per cent on the day when
he had to nave the money. "I am
told they do this right along," he
said, "when they get a fellow in a
C. L. Burnham, Norfolk, asserted
that under the farm loan system of
cheap money and long term loans,
the Rosebud country would be de
veloped very much taster than it is
at present Although he it a banker,
he said he was in favor of this
cheaper rate of interest on farm loans,
-because it would make more general
. farm nroaoeritv. and would immedi
ately be reflected in increased de
posits. Wiley Telli of Wyoming.
S. S. Wiley, Omaha, and Wiley,
Wyo, fanner colonizer, and hydraulic
engineer, testified that all the Big
Horn Basin in Wyoming is tributary
to Omaha, tapped by great trunk
lines, that 12 per cent to IS per cent
ia thejrevailing rate of interest there,
-and that young men are kept from de
veloping that country more because
of the high rate of interest, which
they cannot afford to pay.
H. U fmey, neaa oi tne univer
sity Farm Extension Work, presented
a concise brief in which he showed
average rates of interest charged and
showed that west of an arbitrary
xone-line, extending from Holt to
: Phelps counties, the eastern com
panies, will not loan money, claim
ing that the rainfall is too uncertain.
He asserted the 300 co-operative ele
vators in the atate, together with the
; great number of other farmers' or-
ganiration would immediately form
a basil for (he organisation of the
necessary local associations to get the
i loans, i , ,

Colonel Jack Moore, Buffalo, Wyo.!

Anson Hiersche, Scotts Bluff; O. F.

mem, McClelland, la.: W. S. Dela-
, tour. Garden county, Nebraska, and a
; ' number of other Omaha men.
f The hearing continued until 6
t o'clock, after which the members of
J the board hurried to the private car
i and started for Des Moines,
f Position of Loan Agents.
S Four loan men have rushed to
i. Hyannis, Neb, to make loans now to
i the Kinkaid homesteaders, since the
f, federal farm loan bank law 'was
: passed, although before this bill be
ll came a law, scarcely a loan could be
I had there by a Kinkaider.
1 This came out In the testimony of
f John A. Hoban, a Kinkaid homestead
I "tr from that section,
f Hoban testified that before this bill
. became a law the loan men would not
loan money to a Kinkrder, as the
5 loan companies and the banks there
i were largely controlled by cattlemen,
" who wanted to oust the Kinkaid farm-
era from the settlement in order to
get the range back for their cattle.
, Commission in Advance.
Hoban testified that ' he borrowed
1 month, and that he ii to pay 3 per
cent commission annually for five
5 years, and S per cent interest on the
I loan besides. He testified that the
3 per cent oer annum commission,
I making IS per cent for the five-year
period, was all taken out in advance.
i t and that he tnus gives tne company
1115 per cent besides the 5 per cent per
annum interest.
t . This was the testimony adduced
when the board questioned Hoban as
I to how the federal farm loan bank
i loaning money at 5 or 6 per cent
would ocncni me r innaiu uuiuc-
i He testified that up to the present
month he had been able to get only
; small loans, and these from farmers
. or ranchers in the neighborhood in
7 (tead of at the banks. He paid 8 per
: cent on these.
' Law Helpa Already.
"Do you believe the Tact that the
, farm loan bank law is soon to go into
S effect had anything to do with your
t ability to borrow this $2,600 now?"
' asked Secretary of Treasury McAdoo.
"I do," he said. "1 believe that is
I lust why I got it. The loan compan
ics sent men into Hyannis as soon as
' the law was passed, and there are
f four men in Hyannis right now mak-
.- tug farm loans to Kinkaiders.
The court room was packed a half

corridors seeking to push their way
in, or waiting for someone to leave
and make room for another.
Sixty Are Farmers.
When Secretary McAdoo asked to
see the hands of those who were
farmers sixty hands in the room went
up, which did not include any in the
hall unable to crowd in.
Mr. McAdoo made an opening
statement, briefly telling the purpose
of the hearings, and George W. Nor
ris followed with a summarized state
ment of the intent and purpose of the
bill and the method of its operation.
J. A. OUis of Ord was the first
witness called. He testified that in
the last few days he had talked to at
least eight men within a radius of
three miles in his neighborhood who
had from $1,000 to $3,000 apiece, but
were afraid to buy even an eighty
acre farm, though they wanted one,
because they teared reverses mat
would make it impossible to pay off
the mortgage in 'the five years al
lowed them under the present system.
He said all these men declared they
woxld feel safe in buying a farm un
ci -r the tarm loan act when thty could
get cheap money on a twenty or for
ty-year term under the amortization
All Charge Commission.
Mr. Oltis testified that the prevail
ing rate of interest on farm loans in
Valley county is 6 per cent, but that
all the loan companies charge com
mission of l'i per cent for making
the loan.
Ed P. McDermott of Kearney, a
kwyer, next on the stand, had a pack
of letters in reply to inquiries he had
sent to loan men all over the Sixth
congressional district of Nebraska.
While many of these loan iiien did
not want their names mentioned, they
gav: information freeh' as to rates
of interest charged and commissions
deducted. Summarized, they were in
part as follows:
Bartlet, Neb., 6 per cent plus com
mission. Sidney, Neb., formerly 10 per cent,
now 8 per cent since the farm loan
law passed. .
Sherman county, S'i to 6 per cent
interest and 2 per cent cash commis
sion. Dawes county, average of 9 per
cent interest, and in some rases com
mission as high as 6 percent.
Keya Pans county, 6 to f per cent
interest and varying commissions.
Dawson county, 5 per crnt interest
and $20 per $1,000 commission.
Sioux county, 'up to recently 10
per cent interest; now 8 per cent.
Scottsbluff county, under irrigation
10 per cent interest and other rates
varying with the individual case with
regard to irrigation facilities, etc.
Keith county, 8 to 10 per cent in

Mr. McDermott declared that of
the Kinkaiders who settled on these
640-acre homesteads a number jf
years ago; ouly 10 per cent are now
on tne tarms. 1 he rest, he said, had
to get out, largely because they could

0. N. Mitchell Nearly Wrecks
Interior in His Effort to
Make Escape.
Kearney, Neb., Sept. 22. (Special
Telegram.) A daring jail delivery
was thwarted here early this morning,
but only after one police officer had
been knocked unconscious by a blow
from a bolt in the hands of O. N.
Mitchell, alias John Jones, and an
other had been forced to club him
into submission.
Mitchell was in the city jail on the
charge of operating an automobile
without a license. The .jail was not
guarded from 8 o'clock until 2 a. m.
His attempt to get out was one of
the most daring ever known here. He
literally demolished the interior of
the two-cell lockup and tore off the
entire door sill which leads into the
office. Just as he had forced his way
into the office he heard the officers
coming down the hallway with an in
toxicated man. He hid behind the
door and as Night Policeman Bede
Laughton stepped in he was floored
with the iron bolt in the hands of the
After a desperate encounter with
Officer Vern Smith, lasting for ten
minutes, he finally gave in. Mitchell
then confessed that he was wanted in
Phillipsburg, Kan., for stealing an
automobile. A tent i.t which he had
been living at the fair grounds was
found to contain many stolen articles.
The Kansas sheriff has been notifiea
and will arrive tomorrow to take
charge of the prisoner.

Supreme Court Holds Wiig
Building Was Hit by Light

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 22. (Special
Telegram.) Martin Wiig of Omaha,
whose brick building was destroyed
in the Omaha tornado of 1913 can re
cover on two policies for lightning
and fire which he held in Girard Fire
and Marine Insurance company and
the American Insurance company of
New Jersey, according to a ruling of
the supreme court this morning.
The companies fought payment of
the policies on the ground the build
ings were blown down first and took
fire afterwards. The high court says,
however, that the evidence shows the
building was struck by lightning first
and was blown down afterwards. Nor
is "it possible, the court says, to sepa
rate the loss due to fire from that
due to the collapse of the building.

When You Buy Silks
Silk is one of the easiest

appear genuine, silky and
like a pure-dye taffeta.
Many unscrupulous man

three or four times the actual
weight of the silk by using
tin or iron. They overload
and weaken their silk to
such an extent that it is prac
tically worthless and at the
first strain it splits and tears.
