Must Get Money.
The latest provisional budget gave
only monetary supplies up to Julv 1.
In other words, only another four
days, and the Austrian government
will be compelled to get money, "hon
estly", if it can but get it.
Sudden armament or extraordinary
embarrassment, therefore, seems in
evitable. This fact, coupled with the deter
mined anti-German action, taken by
the Poles, is causing considerable
anxiety in Germany, especially as that
country is unable to send the Poles
food enough to give real propaganda
value to her action and counterbal
ance the Polish, pro-Slay tendencies.
If the monarch decides for abso
lutism the attitude of the Polish ele
ment will suffer. If he goes with the
Poles there will be a weakening of the
Germanic bond, while if he causes
dissolution of the house of deputies
he will put the question to the people,

In the meantime, the Pofish ele
ments are holding fast to their stand
point. The Frankfurter Zeitung, which in
quires why the Poles, who hitherto
have proved themselves clever politi
cians, should choose the present mo
ment for the annunciation of their
ideas, declares that it is due to Polish
determination to break all the min
isters connected with the peace treaty
The present action represents a
warning to Austria to fulfill the Pol
ish state desires.
Order in eastern Europe, declares
the paper, cannot be brought about
against the Poles, who, although mili
tarily weak, possess a strong weapon
which can completely shake Austria
to pieces, and this at the present mo
ment appears to be their decision.
"We have very little need to turn
up our noses," the writer concludes,

Washington Bureau of
The Omaha Bee,
1311 G Street.
Washington, June 26. (Special
Telegram.) Speaker Champ Clark
has tentatively accepted an invitation
of "Boss" Arthur Mullen to be pres
ent and deliver an address before the
Democratic Slate Convention to be
held at Hastings. July 29. Speaker
Clark said it congress were not in ses
sion that date he would be present.
Today it looks as if congress would

weeks, while the ways and means
committee is preparing the new rev
Representative Dan Stephens
lias accepted an invitation to deliver
the fourth of July address at Hart
ington at a county celebration tinder
the auspices of the Home Guards. He
will leave Washington about July 1.
Detailed to Lincoln.
Preliminary to the establishment of
a concentration camp of 4.IHX) techni
cal troops of the National army at
the state fair grounds, the War de
partment has detailed two officers,
Capt. Briscoe and Capt. Joy, to go to
Lincoln to make an inspection and
survey of the grounds. They leave
here Friday night and expect to be
gin their inspection next Monday.
Members of the state fair board ex
plained today, following their confer
ence with War department officials,
that the camp will begin about July
15, if no hitch occurs in the mean
It will not be permitted to inter
fere with the holding of the State
fair. While the fair is in progress,
the automobile exhibition hall will
probably be used for housing and
feeding troops there at that time, and
it is expected that this number will be
reduced to 1,000, so as not to interfere
with the fair. The exhibit of autos,
it is thought, can be housed in tents
to make place for the soldiers.
The camp, it is now expected will
be maintained throughout the winter,
which will necessitate installing heat
ing appliances in the state fair build
ings, The state fair board is expect
ed to contract with the government,
not only to house, but to feed troops,
and while soldiers will be coming and
coins: constantly, it is expected that
a maximum of 4,000 must be provided
for. All contracts for the features are
to be arranged, following the report
of the officers now detailed to make
Norris at Beemer.
Senator Norris announced today
that he may be unable to fill an en
gagement he made to speak July 4
at Beemer. Should congress recess
in time, however, to permit him to
reach Beemer, he will fill the date.
Petrus Patterson, of Lincoln, is to
have a conference tomorrow with
Herbert C Hoover, food adminis
trator, with reference to suits now
pending relating to the enforcement
of food administration laws and reg
ulations. Incidentally he appeared be
fore the ways and means committee
today and submitted recommendations
for propositions in the new war tax
law, relating to the tax on old line
life insurance companies. He asked
for a better definition of the business
of life insurance, a better definition of
the income tax law as applied to in
surance companies and recommended
that if an additional tax be placed
on such companies it be placed upon

Tribute to Wyoming.
Commending in the highest terms
the spirit of loyalty displayed by the
local boards of Wyoming, in placing
that state at the head ot the list tor
the number of Class 1 men offered
for service, Provost Marshal General
Crowder, in a letter to Congressman
Mondell pays this tribute to the
"I may state, however, that in their
evidence of patriotism the local
boarus for the state of Wyoming rank
tirst among all the states in the union
in the number of available Class 1
men offered for the service. Wyo
ming local boards have placed 54.9
per cent of their registration in Class
1, taking first place in the nation.
"I have invited attention of state
headquarters to this extraordinary
showing and have asked of the boards
a reconsideration of their classifies
tion to the end that Class 1 may be
reduced in strength should it be the
judgment of the boards, upon revi
sion, that they have administered the
laws too rigidly.
