A PERIOD OF THREE YEARS
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Oct. 31. (Special.) "This
committee is putting out no ticket but
the straight republican ticket," said
Chairman Ed Beach of the republican
state committee today in answer to
the charge made in a local democratic
paper last night that the republican
managers had prepared a special ticket
which was being put out for the pur
pose of electing certain republican
"I don't know what the opposition
expects to gain by continually pub
lishing such falsehoods. 1 can't under
stand it," said the chairman. "A paper
which pretends to have the standing
that this paper has and then deliber
ately deceive its readers by publishing
stuff on which it absolutely has no
foundation for doing seems to me to
be a direct slap at the intelligence of
its readers atid an indication that it
thinks them easy and ignorant."
Deshler Man Plans
To Put Town on Map
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, Oct. 31. (Special.) A
scheme to put the little town of Desh
ler in Thayer county on the map, has
been Ut up to the State Railway com
mission, which has under its jurisdic
tion he operation of the blue iky
law of the state.
W. J. Struve of that town, proposes
to the commission to organize a com
pany with a capital of 7,5000,000,
twenty per cent of which is to be paid
up capital, which shall be ustd in the
purchase of 1,720 acres of land sur
rounding the town of Deshler, to be
laid out in lots. Then there shall be
built three lines of railroad, aggregat
ing about sixty miles in length, con
necting the town with Bellville, Kan.,
Superior and Davenport.
This in the mind of the promoter
will make Deshler a big town and
bring unlimited wealth to its coffers.
Washington, Oct. 31. Growth of
the country's banking resources since
passage of the federal reserve act is
put at $6,500,000,000 in a statement is
sued today by the comptroller of the
treasury. The record is declared to
be with out a parallel.
The figures cover the period from
July, 1913, a fewmonths before the
act was passed, to July, 1916, includ
ing nearly all of the first two years of
the European war.
The increase in resources, it is de
clared, is greater than the total re
sources of all the country's national
banks a little more than a decade ago.
In New England the three years' in
crease has been 21 per cent, in the
eastern states 32, ill the southern 12,
in the middle states 32 and in the
Jump in Deposits.
Deposits since the reserve act went
into force have made an unprecedent
ed jump also. Their total increase is
put at . $6,250,000,000, or 31 per cent,
nearly as great as the resource in
crease. In New England it was 23
per cent, in the east 39, the soulh 18,
the middle states 26, the west 37 and
the Pacific states 19.
Hanks and trust companies are lend
ing $3,250,000,000 more than they were
three years ago, the statement says.
Emphasis is laid upon a distinct and
growing tendency towards decentrali
zation and distribution of "excessive
reserves heretofore piled up in eastern
cities." This has been especially true
during the last few mouths. In the
four and one-half months from May 1
to September 12, this year, deposits
in New York City decreased nearly
$250,000,000, increasing heavily mean
while in country banks.
Figures Outside of East.
Outside of New England and the
eastern states the following states
show a notable resource' increase in
Illinois, $363,000,01X1, or 20 per cent;
Ohio, $317,000,000, or 22 per cent; Cal
ifornia, $247,000,000, or 20 per cent;
Michigan, $221,000,000. or 37 per cent;
Minnesota, $198,000,000, or 40 per
cent; Missouri, $116,000,000, or 14 per
cNit; Iowa, $107,000,000, or 17 per
cent; Wisconsin, $88,000,000, fcr 21 per
cent; Nebraska, $78,000,000, or 28 per
cent; Indiana, $69,000,000, or 13 per
cent; Oklahoma. $68,000,000, or 41 per
cent; Kansas, $63,000,000, or 24 per
cent; Texas, $60,000,000, or 12 per
cent; Virginia, $52,000,000, or 21 per
cent; North Dakota, $47,000,000, or 42
per cent; Colorado, $42,000,000, or 23
,per cent; South Dakota and Montana,
$37,000,000, or 33 per cent each.

000,000; Pacific states, $325,000,000; in
sular possessions, $40,000,000. Among
the New England states Massachu
setts was first with $429,000,000, or 23
per cent, followed by Connecticut
with $117,000,000, or 23 per cent;

Simple Laxative Remedy
Best for Constipation
I Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin Gave
Satisfaction When Nothing
Nearly every one, at one time or
another, suffers from constipation, or
inactive bowels, and one of the few
conclusions upon which the doctors
agree is that regularity of the bowels
is an essential to good health.
In the family medicine chest of most
well-ordered households will be found
one or more of the various remedies
recommended for the relief of consti
pation. In the majority of homes to
day the combination of simple laxa
tive herbs with pepsin known as Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is recognized
as the standard laxative. Druggists
everywhere report a constantly in
creasing demand for this splendid
remedy which is sold for fifty cents
Mr. James Ash, 102 Green St., Cum
berland, Md., wrote to Dr. Caldwell
that he found Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin the most effective remedy for
constipation he had ever used and
that he always keeps a bottle of it on
hand for use when necessary.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
mild laxative, and does not gripe
or strain, buts acts gently and brings
relief in an easy, natural manner. Its
freedom from opiates or narcotic
drugs makes it the ideal family
To avoid imitations and ineffective
substitutes be sure you get Dr. Cald
