Tired Husbands Find
Of Nonsupport Law
Chicago, Nov. 1. Two thbusand
husbands in Chicago, who, a year ago,
were too tired or too illto work, have
gone out and got jobs since the pas
sage of the non-support act by the last
legislature. Statistics in the munici
pal court today showed that since the
fiassage of the act making a husband
iable to criminal prosecution if he
failed to support his wife, there have
been 2,000 fewer complaints made
than during the first ten months of
1915. Formerly a wife had no re
dress against a shiftless husband', so
long as he did not desert her.
The influence of the law on divorce
records was shown in the fact that nine

Hughes Is Popular
With Missouri Men
Tames A. Werwinski and A. R.
MacDonald, both of South Bend, Ind.,
touring several states for the national
republican committee, came to Omaha
yestetday afternoon, and went out
again shortly after 6 o'clock on a call
from the national committee. .
They are working among the Polish
voters. They have been over Missouri
and found there, among the laboring
people, a . strong sentiment for
Hughes, according to Werwinski. He
said the sentiment in Nebraska seemed
more divided, but that it was swing
ing more and mbre for Hughes.
Mr. Werwinski said the voters were
not at all satisfied with the full dinner-pail
argument, asthey did not
give the democratic party credit for
the present prosperity.

FIGURES GIVEN ON
THE RESERVE BANKS
Growth Since Passage of Act
Put at Over Six Billion
A PERIOD OF THREE YEARS
Washington, Nov. 1. 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 t5
be without a parallel. .
The figures cover the period from
July, 1913, a few months 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
dared, is greater than the total re
sources of all the country's national
banks a tittle more' than a decade ago.
In New England the three years' in
crease has been 21 per cent, in the
eastern states 32, in 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 south 18,
the middle states 26, the west 37 and
the Pacific states 19.
Banks and trust'eomoanies 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 months. In the
four and one-half months from May 1
to September 12, this year, deposits
in New York Citv 'decreased nearlv
$250,000,000, increasing heavily mean
while in country banks.

eastern states the following states
show a notable resource increase in
three years:. . .." , j ,

Says Statement Characterized
as Untrue by President
MADE BY BRECKINRIDGE
North Adams, Mass., Nov. 1. The
alleged weakening nostcriot to the
Lusitania note to Germany regarding
"strict accountability" was again re
ferred to by Senator Lodge at political
meeting here tonight.y
'The president of the United States
has denied that there was any post
script to the Lusitania note and we
are all bound, of course, to accept the
president's denial just as he makes it,"
said Senator Lodge.
"I need hardly say," he added, "that
I would not willingly bring ill an un
founded charge against any one, high
or Tow, and if misled into doing so I
should be quick to retract it. The
president makes one mistake. The
statement which he characterizes as
untrue, that there was such a post
script, was not mine, but was made
by Mr. Breckinridge, a former assist
ant secretary of war, according to
the evidence of two independent wit
nesses, both gentlemen of high char
acter, responsibility and veracity and
Mr. Breckinridge was" in a position
to know, if, as he is reported to have
said, he had seen the postscript,
i "Bearing tin mind the public and
the hitherto uncontroverted fact that
Mr. Bryan had informed the Austro
Hungarian ambassador that the 'strict
accountability' note of May 15, meant
nothing, which fact was at once
cabled by the ambassador to Berlin,
it seemed to me that Mr. Breckin
ridge's statements as testified to by
two independents, ought properly to
be laid before the public.
"The president, it will also be 'ob
served, says that the clause proposing
arbitration 'was suggested' and that
after consideration he rejected it.
This suggestion rejected by the presi
dent, covered the exact proposition
said by Mr. Breckinridge to have been
embodied in the postscript and may
have been what Mr. Breckinridge had
had in mind when talking to Dr.
Bailey and Mr. Jefferis about the
postscript, which was rejected with
out having been referred to the
cabinet, and it may also have been
the reason for Mr. Bryan's statement
to the Austro-Hungarian ambassador
that the note meant nothing.
"I would also call your attention
to a statement by Mr. "Charles War
ren, republican presidential tlector
of New Jersey, who states that he
was told by a member of President
Wilson's official family that the prop
osition to arbitrate the loss of life
on the Lusitania was to be embodied
in a note to Ambassador Gerard and
was not to be a postscript to the
'strict accountability' note.
Strong drinks like beer, whiskey,
tea and coffee, irritate the kidneys

and use Doan's Kidney Pills. They are
fine for weak kidneys. Thousands

DENY CORNER ON MARKET
Kansas City, Nov. 1. Prospect of
a general strike tomorrow in the Okla
homa coal, fields was regarded with
apprehension here tonight in view of
the reported scarcity of fuel in other
parts of the country. Much 6f the
coal used in the southwest comes from
the mines in Oklahoma, several of
which already have shut down and
more than 98 per cent of which are
affected by the strike orde. recently
issued because of an unsettled dis"
pute between operators and union
miners over the biennial wage con
tract. The strike order was made ef
fective November 1. -
Only a limited supply of coat was
reported tonight to be available in any
of the larger cities of this section. In
case of a cold wave and the conse
quent drain on the fuel on hand, deal
ers said much suffering would result.

Soft coal was bought at $5 per ton
at the mines today, the highest price
since 190.1, during the anthracite
strike. Jobbers were selling at from
$6 to $7.50 per ton as a result. Slack

it generally means y6u have been eat

and they become sort of paralyzed
and loggy. When your kidneys gf

Either consult a good, reliable phy

and your kidneys will then act fine.
This famous salts is made from the
acid of grapes and lemon juice, com
bined with lithia, and has been used
for generations to clean and stimulate
sluggish kidneys, also to neutralize
acids in the tirina so it no longer irri

DISBURSING NEARLY A MILLION DOL
LARS IN NEBRASKA ANNUALLY.
ONE AMONG MANY INDUSTRIES THAT WOULD
BE DESTROYED BY A PROHIBITION LAW.
An Argument Against the Amendment From an Entirely
Mr. Nebraska Voter: -
Prohibition, if adopted, would close and destroy the
operating value of Nebraska's only distillery, an industry
which brings large sums of money into the state, because
80 of its product is shipped to other states. Yet pro
hibition would not in thejeast aid in solving the drink
problem, because the consumption of distillery products
in Nebraska would remain just about the sam, only they
would be shipped in from other states. v
Of the remaining 20 sold in Nebraska, probably
one-half is used, for non-beverage purposes, absolutely
necessary in the trades, in the arts, in mcdicin& and for
many other uses. The many hospitals, flavoring extract
and cologne manufacturers, pharmaceutical houses, drug
gist's, etc., now supplied from here, would have to pur-'
chase from eastern distillers.
, We have for forty-five years done a strictly legiti- -mate
business, religiously obeying the law, and during
that time have disbursed thirty-five million dollars in
Nebraska, nearly all of which has found its way to Ne
braska workmen, tradesmen, fanners, etc. Why should
we be voted out of business, and what "would anyone
gain by it? '' . , ,
I ask you to look over the annexed schedule and to
vote against prohibition , -"
