Appointment of Sam Pattenon to
Bank Board Not Expected.
Agent sf Hark Island Refaaea

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
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.

Fifteenth Street
Site for Woodmen
Building Jewell
Financier Has Idea for Erecting fit
Structure Without Disturbing
Business or Moving.
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
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. Jewell, chairman of th
finance committee of the order, haa a plan
which may be executed now that the ap
propriation of 8750.000 has been made.
The present building la at Fifteenth and
Howard street. The location Is under
stood to be satisfactory.
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.

attended the meeting of the sovereign
camp in Detroit will spend this week In St.
