Field said that population ought not to cut any figure In the loca tion of tho bank. Lincoln is a purely agricultural city and no city which de pends mostly upon agriculture is ever a big city. Rasing the population ot Lincoln on the territory covered by its street car service ho said there were 70,000 people. Ho said that Lincoln had not been ablo to support a packing house, but thought It could support a regional bank. State Kxperta Make Maps, L. A. Wettllng, physical expert for tho state railway commission, a former Lin coln banker, exhibited several maps lire pared to show tho secretaries the terri tory which could bo covered by Lincoln It made a regional bank, lie was as slated In the preparation of these exhi bits by IS. C. Hurd, former cmet en gineer ot the railway commission and C. II. Qerber, present chief engineer. Secretary W. S. Wltten. of tho Lincoln Commercial club, admitted it the matter was' to be decided upon tho amount ot business done by a city that Lincoln could not any where compare with either Omaha or Kansas City. Others appear ing for Lincoln were 11. 8. Freeman, vice president ot tho First National bank and W. R. Mellor. ot the Stato Board of Agriculture. The latter, however, stated that tho showing he would make would bo favorable to Nobraska oa against any other city and he made a good showing, During the hearing, Governor Morehead came into the room and waa introduced to Secretaries McAdoo and Houston by W. Bryan, and then tho hearing con tlnued. No l'ollllcx, Saya McAdoo. The Afternoon session ot the hearing was devoted mostly to listening to prom inent business men ot Omaha In favor ot tho location ot a bank In that city and developed into something ottu. sensation when a telegram waa handed to Secre tary McAdoo purporting to have been sent out by the Omaha clearing house, urging bankers out In the state who had not already replied to letters sent out by tho clearing house asking for their opin ion as to the best location ot a regional bank to get busy right away as political Influence was being used to thwart the location ot a bank in Omaha, At the time the telegram wan handed to McAdoo. II. W. Yates ot Omaha was on the stand and tho telegram waa passed to him to read and the question asked him what he knew about tU Mr. Yates said that he know nothing about It what ever, but that it must have been written by some enthuslastlo supporter ot Omaha who bad simply let hla Judgment get away with his good sense. He said, how ever, that Inasmuch as the matter hod been brought up. that while he knew nothing ot any auch telegram being Bent, there was a rumor afloat that in order to get the votes ot eel tain senators out side ot Nebraska promises had been made, but ho did not taks much stock in tho rumor, present that there was no politics mixed up In tho location and that tho sending out of tho telegram only went to show that the' "fools were not all dead yet." Ward Burgess of the M. E. Smith com pany ot Omaha paid that the' general trend ot business In this locality was to ward Omaha in his business line and ho thought that any deviation from tho usual practice would result In much dis satisfaction. W. S. fright of tho .Wrlght-Wilhelmy! company was of about the same opinion. In the wholesale hardware business, in which his firm was engaged, he found that most ot tho trade had a natural trend toward Omaha as the natural sourco of supply, Ho cald that Omaha and Kansas City were the natural cen ters of agrloulture in this country, but that Kansas City did very little business In most ot the district covered by Omaha. J. C. French of the Stock Yards Na- tlonnl bank of South Omaha said that tho banks ot that city did business with twenty-four states and territories and 0) per cent of it camo from the territory covered by the mops showing this dis trict. Practically all of tho business done by Omaha and South Omaha banks was with Chicago and only a small per cent with Denver. Ynten Submit Ilrlef. II. W. Yates submitted a brief which was prepared by a committee ropreoent- ing the banks of Omaha, and was pro pared on business actually transacted and not on futuro, prospects. He was asked many questions by the two secre taries, and tho hearing at this point de veloped into u general educational dis cussion ot tho currency bill, Mr, Yates saying that he thought that the best In terests ot the country could be better served by the establishment of more banks and not by tho arbitrary selection ot a few. In speaking ot tho Importance of locating a regional bank at Omaha Mr. Yates 'said that ever since Omaha waa located, before even the railroad came to tho state, the natural drift of everything In a business way had been toward Omaha. Kvery railroad that had been built had verged In or out ot Omaha, and to place tho bank In any other lo cation but Omaha looked to him like case of the tall wagging the dog. He showed that by letters sent out by the Omaha clearing house to banks ot tho couutry embracing Nebraska and adjoin ing states asking their choice of a loca tion for the regional bank 1,333 favored Omaha, 2S7 Denver and Lincoln 03.

An other condition named by Colonel Qoo thals was that he be retired from the army, In which ho has served thirty-four years. The publication of Colonel Qoethals' letter drew from Washington tho state ment that it was the understanding that President Wilson had all along intended to appoint the builder of the canal as first governor of tho canal zone. In discussing this reported Intontlon of President Wilson to name Colonel Qoo thals head of the now Panama govern ment Llndley M. Garrison, secretary of war, In Now York today, said: "I consider tho services of Colonel Goc- thals invaluable and I hope ho will re main In Panama." AVnulilniclou Nut Informed. WASHINGTON, Jan. M. White House officials stated today that the' first In timation conveyed to them officially con cerning the plans of Colpnel George W.

Municipal Store Opens at Chicago CHICAGO, Jan. 24, Chicago's fh-s rnii ntclpal store; which tho city council re cently authorized with an appropriation of 23,OO0 and of which groceries are sold at cost to the poor was opened today. If tho market proves a sucess, meats and wearing apparel also will be sold and other stores opened In different sections of the city. "Tho municipal market? never will be opened In 'pauper neighborhood,' " said Joseph Meyer, county agent, who is in charge of the enterprise, "because the county agent's offlco was cated to give stuffs and clothing to persons without funds. Tho municipal markets are to help working people practice economy by purchasing their provisions at cost." Senator Oullom is Eeported Dying WASHINGTON, Jan. 21.-Former Sen ator Shelby M. Cullom was very low again today and his 'family was prepared for tho end at any hour. A rally after a sinking spell yesterday renewed hope that lite might be prolonged, but he grew weaker during the night. NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 24.-An af firmative vlow of business was tho key note ot a speech Secretary Redfield mode here today before the Chamber of Com merce. He praised American manufac turers for their ready readjustment to new conditions and declared that the flood of foreign manufactures which It was predicted would flood Amcilcan mar kets with tho passage ot the new tariff had not materialized. "Aye, but you say, look, at the depres sion. Well, look at It," said Mr. Red field. "Look at it sanely, without pas sion and without prejudice. What do you see? But before you answer let mo ask a second question, Where are you look ing? Get the horizon big enough, elso your picture will be but partial and may mislead. Where then Is trade depres sion found? In India, In Argentina, In Brazil, in Germany, in England. Where is It least? In America. Where Is tho rising tide from such depression as exists felt first and most? Here In America, TnvA nnlflA thA nltlfnl nnrn.b1ea of tha prophets of evil who for political pur poses preach national pain. Look calmly at tho truth. America suffers from no I disaster. It la better off when tha worst Is said than Its sister nations. From the bottom, which at most was not deep, It has already risen far and is rising. There was jUBt cause for hesitation tn that which has happened In tho past. The re action from tho Balkan war, which had tied the purse strings of Europe and shut down tho mills, was naturally reflected here In some small degree. IlenilJnxtmcntH Arc Over. "It was perfectly proper that business men, whoso output was affected more or less by the new tariff, should give thoughtful heed how to readjust them selves to It. They would have been fool ish had they dono otherwise. Frankly, tho men who dreaded tariff changes must have said, and are saying, that readjust ments are over and tho new is at its worst notlilng Uko ns bad as they feared, and that at its best Is helpful. "Europe begins to see Its way out of Its deep depression, and last and best of all you know that sympathy with all that Is finest and best in business life and with the highest Ideals of our in dustrlal activities In regnant at the seat of government. This is no longer tho day of doubt, but tho hour of hope. "Too much perhaps there has been the spirit on ono side that 'what Is, is wrong,' end tho as&ertlon on the other hand that 'what is, is right.' 'Big Business' hns often foiled to see that its methods havo arouajJ a just popular resentment and that many of Its past ideals and pur posed were impossible and intolerable In iv democracy. The men of financial and corporate power have had to learn that the weal of the whole people Is a supremo law to which their private interests must cbodientlf bow. The business conscience has Itself awakened to a realization of wrongs Tsummltted' in the name and on the alleged behalf of commerco and ln flastry and will tolerate those wrongs no more. Even the men of might in iinance are becoming men ot light and leading lr. the necessary readjustments that are pending. Tho business conscientiousness is becoming less Individual and mora social. Business neaar to Co-operate. "I am not here, therefore, on any er rand to arouse the business conscience or to raise the banner ot revolt against buslnoiu procedure, certainly not to de nounce or to destroy. The senso of what Is fit, tho knowledge of what is duo to their own fconor, Is now so keenly alive among the business community tnat when tho achievements of our recent dis cussions shall have been finally wrought Into law they will be, In my belief, not found whntlng In willingness and power to take up such 'further work as may remain." To Secretary Bryan, he asserted, be longs htgh credit for his co-operation with the Department of Commerce In smoothing tho way to business progress In foreign markets. Mr, Redfield spoke at lengtn on new methods adopted by tho department to bring business men In closer touch with both domestic and for eign trade opportunities. DAVID GILL.
