SUB.E ENOUGH DAY SPELL Agent sf Hark Island Refaaea to Deliver Consignment of Bee te th Elks' I lab. (From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Neb., June 1. (Special.) A good many democrat Tiav expressed sur prise at the appointment of "am Patterson a secretary of the State Banking Board, as they had been given to understand that E. Royse would be retained In that po sition. When the banking bill was pending In the house last winter several of the mem bers. Including Oraff of Cuming. Bowman of Nuckolls and Snyder of Harlan ob jected seriously to giving to the governor the power to appoint all the employe un der the proposed law. At least two of the members named railed on the governor and assured him that they were satisfied with the work of Secretary Roys and desired no change In the office. On the beat of authority It la learned that they were aasuredsby the gov ernor he would continue Mr. Royse In of fice were the appointing power left In his hands. Bine then It la reported that Mr. Bow. man recommended another man for the place. There Is little doubt that Dr. P. U Hall of Lincoln expected the reappoint ment of Mr. Royse. At one, time In the proceedings, the gov ernor said he would reappoint Mr. Royse providing members of the Plate Printing Board would permit hltn to name the sec tary of that board, the legislature having made a bobble when It attempted to put this power In the hands of the executive. This proposition was not agreed to and a democrat gets the banking Job. Should the law be held up in the court. Mr. Royse will hold onto th Job until the question is settled. Dare Knongb Dry Rnell, Lincoln Is threatened with a sure enough dry spell such as the city never before encountered. When the city voted dry the various clubs secured an Injunction re straining the city from Interfering with their members drinking In the club room and to prevent any interference with the club from dishing out drinks to their members. But now comes the Rock Island with fifty cases of beer consigned to the Elks club which it refuse to deliver to the club room. This action on the part of the agent for the railroad was taken upon the advice of the company's attorney here In Lincoln. The railway commission was recently asked by the Adam Express company whether It was compelled to accept a ship ment of boose, but th commission refused to answer until the question came up in a formal way. So if the other railroad and express companies follow the example of, the Rock Island there is little chance for any club to keep its icebox full in Lincoln.

Where will th new I7M.0O0 Woodmen ol th World building be located In Omaha? A soon a the announcement came frotr Detroit that the sovereign grand lodge ol the order had passed the appropriation, th question of location became the subject among business men, ss with this building and two other large buildings which will cost 8400,000 to 1500,000 In prospect thla year, the business district may be considerably affected. The Woodmen of the World have had their eyes on various site for two years past because the new building has been becoming more and more of a necessity. Colonel B. W.

Colonel Jewell has proposed that th new building be erected on the site and th lots eaat of the building "without disturbing th business of the order going on in the old building." The colonel has talked with architects and contractor who say the new building ran be erected practically around th old building and It would be a piece of good economy. To U the present building and buy another sit at present values would probably cost'more than to follow Colonel Jewell' Idea of erecting th eaat part of the building and as much of the new build ing a possible, then occupying the east wing while the west aid Is being completed, Thl would place th building where It ha a good location, Just opposite the Audi torium, within a block of Sixteenth street and as much In the present center a It will likely need to be for th headquarter build ing of a large fraternal Insure me order.
