curroncy legislation at the present
extra session originally called to con
sider only "the tariff, has brought
protest from his own party follow
ers against the haste and hurry. They
would prefor to finish up wun we

tho regular session; but to every such
suggestion tho president interposes
a stubborn refusal.
The Washington correspondent
aro guessing at tho real reason for
tho hurry with several plausible ex
planations. Tho president and' tho
currency bill backers are convinced,
they say, that they aro stronger now
than they will bo later, and that ir
they cannot got tho bill enacted at
this session, they will fall altogether.
Bo long is the lawmakers, are cooped

Bryan Investments
Mr, Drran'n Investments.
Lincoln Journal.
When Mr. Bryan announced that Ik
mutt lecture to help make expenses a
secretary ot state, people not familiar
with his private affairs wondered ho v.
that could be. He htmse'.f said that hi
had been laying aside tlO.OO) a year, pre
sumably for the seventeen years slnc
his prominence In politics made him a
star of the Chautauqua platform. If
these savings have been drawing Interest
the total thould now be over 1200,000.
Five per cent on this amount would be
110,000 a year. It looked a Mr. Bryan
were unwilling to use the returns of his
Investments, aa other secretaries of state
have had to do, to piece out his salary
at Washington. He seemed to refuse to
make any personal financial sacrifice In
order to serve his country.
In tho statement Issued Saturday Mr.
Bryan explains his position further. His
money I 'Invested In unproductive prop
erties. His Investments are an expense
to hm, In fact, rather than Income pro
ducers. Lincoln people will understand
thl. Mr. Bryan has bought large areas
of suburban land In the vicinity of hla
Lincoln home. Much of this land Is now
worth "upward ot $500 an acre. For some
he paid this much. Tet It Is productive
only as farm land worth tioo an acre.
But this Is only because Mr. Bryan
chooses to be a speculator rather than
an investor, looking for his profit from
rise - In land value rather than from
dividends or from Interest He does
not expect to receive lets return from '
placing hi money this way than from
tutting1 It Into productive enterprises
or Interest bearing: securities. If he col
lects less Income than If he had Invested
hi money otherwise, it Is only becanse
hla kind of Investment defers' the collec
tion Ot thcomo 'to the day he disposes
ot his land. It I aa if Secretary of State
Knox had been unable to supplement his
salary, with dividends from his stocks by
reason ot the fact that ho was letting
his dividends go to the purchase of more
stock. Mr. Bryan could aa well sell
some of his land from time to tlmo to
lvo upon as Secretary Knox could draw
hit dividends and use thent for living ex
penses. But we do not ordinarily think of land
speculation In that way. In the coufse
of a few years Mr. Bryan's suburban
land Will doubtless double In value. That
would be equivalent to a lump Income of,
say, 50,000. But we are so accustomed
not to regard aa Income the deterred
'dividends" from land Speculation that
Mr. Bryan, careful taxpayer" as he is,
Is likely-td forget to list this amount for
taxation under the national Income tax"

OMAHA, Auf. 11. To the Editor of
ihe Dee! I noticed m Tho Bee a few
ays ago a statement to the effect that
Mr. Cowell did not understand why so
ttle Interest was being taken by the
tublto In his campaign for early closing
of the retail stores. Only the semi-torpor
nduced by tho hot weather has prevented
me from going on record before as pro
testing against such closing, and I havo
no doubt that the same reason has kept
Others from to doing", together with the
fact that many of those most Incon
venienced are at present absent on their
It really seems as though the agita
tors ot the early closing were not giv
ing due consideration to a very large
class of their patrons, towlt, those em
ployed In office work. When are the
men and women who must be at thelt
desks from 8 or 8:30 to 12, and from 1 to 5
or 6 In the evening? to do their shopping
If tho retail stores ore to be closed on
Saturday nights? Probably some would
answer "during the noon hour," but this
is Impracticable for at least two reasons:
First, the most of our noon hour it con-
sumed In the very necesarV business of
getting our lunches, and, second, a vttlt
to any ot the stores at noon discloses the
fact that fully half of the sale people
are likewise at lunch, making It Impos
sible to get waited upon promptly and
It Is certainly perfectly Just and propet
thttt a'etPeople should have tho privilege
of eating at tho name hours at customary
with the rest of us, but why should they
not bo on duty on Saturday evening (or
some other evening) in order that the
office people may have an opportunity to
spend their money In Omaha, and see
what the arc buying, Instead ot being
forced to do business with mall order
houses? iSurely the combined salaries of
otflao people In Omaha Is an Item worth
considering In tho retailer's receipts. And
furthermore, the salaried people usually
pay cash, or at least settle their account
promptly, which Is more than can b said
for a largo number of tho leisure etas,
to whose convenience solely the retailers
now seem to be catering. I know whereof
I speak because I used to handle collec
tions for one of the largest retail stores
In Omaha and very few office women
were on the "slow pay" list. Are we not
at desirable customers as the women
who can adapt thomselves to any shop
ping hours fixed by the stores? Wo have
no control over our own time during the
day, and It It not reasonable to expect
that our employers are going to close
their offices every time we need to buv
clothes. Let the stores arrange the hours
of their employes so that each salesperson
may havo a portion ot a day off each
week to look after her (br his) personal
affairs. That Is more than most office
people get. And let the saleswomen who
work late' In tho evening cOme down late
enough In the morning to comply with
the. nine-hour law.

SILVER CREEK, Neb., Aug. IS. To'
the Editor ofThe.' Beer A fW weeks ago
I took exception to;soni6 remarks of one
of your correspofde t. who for -some
time, apparently Jthout arty bowels Of
compassion Whatever, had been Industri
ously slutting; us (o the point of nausea
with A miscellaneous assortment of
racket-store morality and somo ' sus-plolous-Iooklng
religious dope that
smelted strongly of John Calvin and
Johnathan Edwards. In so doing I am
afraid I did not follow very closely in
the beaten paths ot orthodox .Christian
ity. TO he entirely frank about It, I
think It Is true that I got clear oft the
reservation and attacked the very founda
tions of orthodox Christianity In three .
certain letters, which to my own amaxe
merit and the Infinite dismay and disgust
of tho brethren, you permitted to appear ',
In your columns, I Was desirous of hav
ing tho -brethren meet my attacks
squarely and defend themselves and their
religion; I even tried to goad them Into
doing so, but they would not. Instead,
like a swarm ot angry bees, they made
tho air volcanic with thetr invectives and
their buzzing.
I how again find myself In a similar
mlxUp, with this difference, that two of
the brethren, a gentleman of PlattsmoUtu
and Father John Williams of Omaha,
have shown a disposition to meet Issues
squarely, particularly tlie latter, while
an anonymous gentleman ot ColumbUs,
who thinks he Is a Christian, but evi
dently Is not, very property lambasts the
whole bunch ot my traducers for thelr
ungodly, behavior toward me.
And now, Mr. Editor, Just as I hod been
felicitating myself that I should this
time be able to hold at least one or two
ot my critics down to business and havo
a nice tittle set-to with them, you, taklnc
your cue from the fact that the governor
ot Kansas Is being petitioned to set a day
for prayer for rain, butt In andtry to side
track the whole thing by suggesting that
we discuss the question ot tho efficacy
ot prayers fOr rain. I am disgusted with
you, and to forestall another fiasco, I
make you a proposition and will assume
that you accept It you publish this letter.
Let me chew this religious rag with the
brethren for a Short time until they way
be able properly to diagnose my case
and then I will make the offer to one ot
them, probably to Father Williams, to
be a Chris ttan, if he will tell me how,
I am Induced to make that offer and
It It Is made it will be made In perfect
good, faith, for the reason that I realize
that I am liable to "shufflo off" before
very long, and this hot weather lmpreeses
't on my mind that In my present un
godly condition I would not be aoie to
keen very comfortable under the marked
r' In temperature. And then, too, my
wlfe wants me to get an automobile,
ak'a the case Urgent. I had
thought to hang on fifteen or twent
. v jcl but a 1 get that auto I shall
have .to cut It down to about two or
three year. (Say, confidentially, do you
think my wife was thinking of that when
she asked mo to get that auto?)
