It C. H. Venner & Co.. New York bond dealers, who have been "knocking" Omaha's credit because the city retained j a $5,000 check deposited by them as for-j felt when they submitted bids for city ; bonds, think they are entitled to the re- i turn of this money or any part of $14,001 they claim as damages, they will be given an onnortunltv in "snow" the cltv coun cil At the meeting of the council in com mltteo ' of the whole City Treasurer W. U. Ure said he believed this company had done "all the blood-letting of which they are capable," but he thought It the city wanted to agree with them and call them off," a basis for an agreement hould be considered.

This company entered a low bid on city bonds, was awarded the bonds and re fused to accept them. 81nco then they have circularized the country with letters tlovoted exclusively to declarations that Omaha bonds were poor securities. "Wo might consider a compromise if they could repair the damage they have done," suggested Butler, "by sending out circulars retracting their other state ments." I don't believe they have done any real damage," said Commissioner J. J. nydeu "They have been in this sort of business for years and bond buyers are pretty well acquainted with their meth ods."

Klopp, rounder and president of the Klopp-Bartlett printing company. wno, in recent injunction proceedings In district court, alleged that Joslah II. Rodtletd and Harvey ft. Mllllken, mem bers of the board of directors, had con spired to prevent him from having a voice In the management, has begun a new legal move to regain his lost posi tion. In a petition ho relates to the dis trict court that he was Induced to con tent to changing tho company's article ot Incorporation by erroneous legal ad vice and asks that the old articles be re- Instated. Mr. Klopp alleges that, although no holder of preferred stock had ever claimed the right to participate in the management qj thol .com.pafli', !u August, oi uiib year neuueiu lniormea mm mat he would claim sue, right and that an opinion written by Jefferls & Tunlson, regular attorneys .for the firm, said that the holders ot preferred stock had this Iower. Relying on this statement, Klopp asserts, he consented to changes In the articles of Incorporation, which have caused him to lose his salary and all control of tho business. He asserts that Mllllken knew that in fact the holders ot common stock alone were entitled to control tho business and the legal opinion was erroneous. The plaintiff asks that the court set aside the new articles ot Incorporation and that the company be required to is sfle common and preferred stock to the former holders under the old articles. If this Is done by the court, Mr. Klopp will regain control of tho business, since ho held a majority ot the common stock.

CATHARTIC - ANY DRUG STORE CENT BOXES- a GOOD CURRENCY BILL LIKELY Senator Hitohcook So Summarizes Pending Money Law. MEANS GREAT DEAL TO OMAHA Lefdslntton linn n Direct ItrnrlnK Upon ht Visible Financial Snpport the Local llnnks May Knioy. "I believe tho outcome of this great struggle on tho currency question will bo the passage ot a good bill," concluded Senator Q. M. Hitchcock when he had reviewed the currency fight before an overflow nudlenco at tho Commercial club public affairs luncheon. "I believe that when' It comes to the fioor of 'the senate In a freo and fair tight right will prevail. Not all ot our amendments will be adopted. I feci safo In saying that when tho senate passes a currency bill It will bo not only one that tho house will approve, but ono thnt tho pooplo will approve and that the president will be glad to sign." Senator Hitchcock went Into the sub ject of currency legislation and banking systems In goncral, dealing with tho Dank of England system In England, the centralized rystom of France and Uio system In Germany. Ho then set forth the propositions In the ponding legisla tion In Washington, pointing out that the bill as It passed the house called for twelve roglonal resorvo banks, whtlo Senator Hitchcock's branch of the com mittee recommended only four. Won I it Hnve llronnht Panic. "I am frank 16 say," he continued, "that If the bill had become a law In Jho shape that It passed tho houso it would havo resulted In either a business panic, or It would have broken up the system of national banks, or lost to congress the Jurisdiction of the national banks which It now enjoys. We wero all agreed on a system of regional banks. .We were also agreed that the national banks should put tho reserves In the regional banks. Out our branch of the committee reported In favor of four regional banks Instead of twelve. "Under the provisions ot the bill aa It passed tho house, It would have meant that H5.0000 ot the capital of the national banks ot Omaha and South Omaha would have to be sent away to the re gional banks as reserve. This would be 6 per cent of the capital and surplus ot tho banks ot Omaha and South Omaha. That would be done In every olty In Nebraska and In every smaller town ot the state. Instead of having Uie capital to use here In the country, where 'It would do good, It would be sent out of horo to the regional bank of this region.

They would be called upon within a few months to send away 7.XX).O0O. Whero would they get It? They could not get It from their reserves, for they are ro qulred to keep, but per cent. They would have to call upon the borrowing public to come In and pay their antes. This might have caused a business panic. And forty-seven other reserve cities In the United States would havo been af fected the same way. In all it would have meant that 1375,000,(00 In cash would have to be produced by the national banks In a very short time It would have caused a destructive financial storm that would havo made the panlo ot 1907 Insignificant. "Ono ot tho first things I urged In the committee was that the people be allowed to subscribe the stock In the now regional banks Instead of asking for the reserves of the national banks. In this way we would add tlOUXM.OOO to tho banking cap ital ot the United States Instead of taking away that much from the banks. So I proposed publlo ownership of tho stock In these' banks and I propose to fight for publlo ownership of these regional banks." Young Men Needed at the City Mission "What wo need most at tho city mis sion Is the Influence ot young men," said Miss Nellio Magee last night, speaking to the First Christian church Endeavor so ciety. "If wo could havo but ono willing worker from each church In the city we would havo planty of assistance. Sunday we had over 200 foreigners at the after noon religious meeting, and only two teachers. What we need. Is a teacher and leader for all nationalities. The teacher Is the hlngo upon which the door ot re ligion swings." ' Miss Magee referred to the opposition of certain churches to the city mission. "It Is true, the mission would be un necessary," continued Miss Magee, "It tho Immigrants would attend our churches. But they do not. There Is only one alternative, and that Is to reach them through missionary work. Immi grants arriving In this country have high Ideals of our religious Institutions, but their disappointment Is pathetic. They feet keenly the strangeness of their en vironments.

"Wo feel confident that tho publlo is with ua In our fight against tuberculosis ami what we will be able to accomplish wilt Ixi Just the rrault of tlwusands ot small helps from evedybody.

Over seventy merchants In Omaha are offering the seals to Christmas shop pers, and early ones among the latter are alr&idy Including tho seats In their lists ot purchases.
