early tomorrow morning.
The public buildings, hotels and

ated with bunting and fluttering

program of entertainment has been
mapped out on an elaborate scale and
nothing Is to be left undone that will
contribute to the pleasure of the Eag

ing their stay in the city.
During the day the various officers
and committees have been hard at
work completing their reports and
putting the finishing touches to the

the well known lawyer and politician
of New York.
The annual reports of the officers
will show the Eagles to be In a most
flourishing condition, both numeri

les to this immense gathering, and
departel last Sunday evening for St.
Louis, where he no doubt Is enjoy
ing himself as well as any of the boys.
P.llly formerly lived near St. Louis
and It will no doubt be a pleasure
also to visit the city he used to
know so well In the past.
Time to Call a Malt.
The muddle In which Shallenber
gcr and Dahlman have gotten the
Democratic party Into should by all
means be settled, and that right now.
With the notice given out that Shal
lenberger Intends to contest the elec
tion In twelve or fourteen counties,
brings Mayor 'Dahlman's annouce
ment that he will contest twenty
five counties In tne western part of
the state. The muddle has gone far
enough and Is already dividing the
party to the extent that neither one
of them ran possibly be expected to
be elected If declared to be nomi
nated. There are other men In the
I arty Juft as popular and Just as do
serving as cither Shallenberger or
Dahlman, and to monkey along here
two or three weeks with these con
tests, to the detriment of the state
candidates and candidates for the
(senate and house of representatives
Ib not right. The Democratic leaders
of the state must rise up and "call
off the clogs of war," and If a com
promise cannot bo affected between
these two candidates, call a conven
tion and displace both with a candi
date who Is Just as able to carry the
party to victory as either Shallenber
ger or Dahlman. Make a move now.

Diving Kecord Unbroken.
According to the following special
from Louisville under date of August
22, Cass county, evidently, can boast
of the champion diver: "In a dis
patch from Fremont under date of
August 18, Alfred Fowler of that
place claims the state record for long
distance diving, having dived 129
feet In the Y. M. C. A. tank at Fre
mont In a recent contest. It was the
opinion of Physical Director Kearns
of Fremont that this record had not
been beaten in the state. If this
distance is a record it was broken by
Fred Peterson of Louisville last week
when young Peterson dove 146 feet
in the sandpits here. Mr. Petersen is
twenty years old and has made sev
eral local records as a swimmer. He
has on previous occasions beaten the
record of 146 feet, but the long un-
der-water swim of last week was wit
nessed by a large crowd which was
in Louisville Attending the street
carnival, and caused no little com
ment in this section of this county."
