This letter is as follows: "29G8 Harris St., Omaha, Neb October 26, 1,91(5. Mr. Robert H. White, North Platte, Neb. Dear Brother: Because of the fact that thoro has come to mo several reports that tho opposition Is circulating broadcast 'the report that Judgo Sutton is a drinking man and is favorablo to tho. saloon rather than tho 'dry sldo,' I want to say this in defense of his character, that as his pastor, I have known him for' nearly threo years and have neVer I heard of anything that would, smirch his character. Besides this, I have tho testlmltmy of somo of tho best men in Omaha, who have known tho Judge for more than a quarter of a century, and they unequivocally say that ho is per fectly honest and straight, and ab solutely sincere in his fight against the American saloon and its train of degrading influences. This attack upon the character of a good man Is but ono of tho numerous dying whims of a degrading institution and I wish you would brand all such statements as absolute falsehoods. I would bo very glad to have you publirfh this letter over my signature in jKiur local papors. Very truly yours, J. FRANK YOUNG, Pastor Westminister Preabytorian Church of Omaha."

They fail to state that of the $1.10 paid to the non-resident company, there is only thirty-five cents credited as a principal payment, the balance seventy-five cents being taken for interest. Of the $1.10 monthly payment to this association on each $100.00 -borrowed sixty cents is for interest and fifty cents is credited as a principal payment. This difference in the amount credited the borrower will result in the borrower in the non-resident company be ing compelled to pay not less than $25.00 more on each $100.00 borrowed in order to discharge the debt than they would if they were doing the business with this Associalton.
