church of St. Rita of Cascia, College
avenue and One Hundred and Forty
fifth street last night, where a
Novena is in progress, knelt in prayer
on the sidewalks and roadways about
tho church, remaining there for
hours. St. Rita is the patroness of the
temporal wants, sometimes called the
saint of good luck, and the Novena is
held for nine days, preceding the
feast of the saint."

most prominent members of the gen

decided that Wade and Moon should
be urged to make tho race in tho in
terests of the democratic party of

in including Judge Wade to make
tho race, as he has steadfastly de

his retirement from congress. S. H.

A San Juan, Porto Rico, dispatch
carried by tho Associated Press says:
"William J. Bryan, who is touring
tho island, took occasion today to de
ny certain reports which have
reached him as to his intentions on
returning to the United States. He
smilingly declined to say what he
would do, but declared himself on
some of tho things he would not do.
He said he would not start a prohi
bition paper, and he would not be
a candidate for the senate. The
change in the rules committee of the
house of representatives, he added,
'pleases me.' Mr. Bryan will be a
passenger on the steamer Caracas,

November is the prediction of the
"democratic leaders gathered in Des
Moines today from every corner of
the state. Tonight's annual dinner
of the Jefferson memorial banquet
club furnished the ostensible object
of the roundup of the party leaders,
but the true reason for the unusually
large gathering of the faithful is
.found in the general desire for a
party conference to discuss the early
plans for the coming campaign.
Chairman Price and all of the mem
bers of the state committee were in
attendance. The democrats profess
to regard the outlook for their suc
cess next fall as unusually bright.
Their hopes, are based largely on the
serious dissensions in the republican
ranks. Iowa is now regarded as a
'progressive' state. Her senators
took the lead in the tariff fight, and
were backed by insurgent congress
men from several districts. It has
been practically settled that an effort
will be made to elect, insurgent re
publicans in congressional districts
represented by standpatters. But
whether a fight shall be made on
governor and other state officers has
not been definitely determined. It is
believed by many progressives that
they should keep hands off state
offices. Perhaps Just as many insist
that a campaign should be made to
oust Governor Carroll, who, it Is con
ceded, will be a candidate for re
nomination before the June prima
ries. Leading democrats are of the
opinion that if tho factional warfare
of tho republicans extends to the
state offices a democratic victory is
certain to result. The democratic
ticket will be named at the state con
vention to be held In Ottumwa tho
last week of July. Tlie republican
convention is to meet in Des Moines
one week later. At the democratic
banquet here tonight Governor Shal
lenberger of Nebraska was the prin
cipal speaker. If the democrats who
inet here in conference today have
their way about It, their state ticket

There should bo at least three ses
sions of tho legislature with recesses
of not less than six months. At the
first session lot all bills be intro
duced. Allow time for explanation
and discussion. Then an adjourn
ment for six months should follow.
During this time the voters of tho
state may become acquainted with
proposed legislation and each legisla
tor can have time to consult with
his constituency. At the second ses
sion allow the introduction of amend
ments with opportunity for their ex
planation and discussion. Tho dis-

morning two masked bandits at
tempted to hold up the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul railroad "Pioneer
Limited" train from Chicago to St.
Paul. An Associated Press dispatch
says: "The men boarded tho train
at New Lisbon, Wis., getting in by
way of the forward vestibule of the
front sleeper, which had been left
open when the conductor took his
orders to the engineer. The men
passed through the front sleeper into
the rear vestibule of the car, locking
both doors of the vestibule. When
Conductor Shnmway passed through
the train he was stopped . by the
locked vestibule door. Unlocking
the door he was Instantly confront
ed by revolvers held by two masked
figures. Conductor Shumway leaped
at the larger of the bandits. A tus
sle followed in which the railroad
man was overpowered. One robber
then reached down under the steps
and cut the air connection, stopping
the train. The men then jumped off
and fled. The men escaped into the
swamps. Sleeping Car Conductor
Mills was in the third sleeper when
Porters J. H. Matthews and William
J. Johnson dashed in saying the train
was being held up. Conductor Shum
way was grappling with one of the
men in the sleeper Ontanagon. Por
ter Johnson obtained a revolver and
fired twice after the men."
Sixteen officials of the window
glass trust were indicted at Pittsburg.
An Associated Press dispatch from
Philadelphia says: "Capital punish

Jr., president of the Pennsylvania
state board of medical examiners In
an address before the American so
ciety for the study of alcohol and
other drug narcotics. To kill a man
terms of the entire bill. Then an
other six months adjournment.
At the last session allow further
discussion but no further amend
ment of any measure. Then should
come the vote.
By this plan the best features of
the initiative and referendum would
be applied to leglslatipn, there would
be ample time for members to study
tho bills and time for the people to
register their op nions of tho pro
posed laws. Then, too, would the
haste and skulduggery of the closing
days be avoided.
My plan would not only limit the
Introduction of bills to the first ses
sion but it would also limit tho num
ber of bills to be Introduced to ono
for every member. This would pre
vent the torrent of freak bills, silly
bills, requested bills, foolish bills that
fill the hoppers under the present
methods. If some energetic member
had more than ono Important meas
ure to propose he could doubtless
persuade a colleague to father it.
Think how preposterous it is for
millions of citizens, as in Ohio for
instance, living in peace and order,
having enacted anew every two years
a largo book of additional regula
tions for their civil conduct. Why,
even the senators and representatives
themselves are surprised beyond
measure when they finally got home
and read up what they have done.
Many think the meeting of tho
legislature a biennial calamity. This
plan would make It a more efficient
body of lawmakers.
An Irishman visited a tuberculosis
exhibit, where lungs in both healthy
and deceased conditions were dis
played preservedin glass jars. After
carefully studying one marked
"cured tuberculosis lung," he turned
to the physician and said:
"Perhaps It's becanse OI'm Irish,
bnt if ye cured th' patient, how could
ye have his lung in a bottle?" Lip-plncotfa.
