IOWA'S INTERSTATE FAIR.
\Vill Be Bigger and Better This Year

Never In the history of all the Corn
palaces , carnivals , and fairs given in
iSibux City has anything on so colossal
< a scale as that of the great Interstate
Fair of 1906 'been attempted. The
JFair which this year will be given
iSept. 10 to 15 at the beautiful Wood-
and Park , Riverside , Sioux City , by
the Interstate Live Stock Fair Asso
ciation will be bigger than ever In
every way than in previous years. The
Fair Association has taken the profits
of former years and placed them In
"betterments. Twenty additional acres
of ground lying between the park and
the Big Sioux River have been partial
ly cleared of trees and this'space will
be utilized in making room for farm
machinery and like exhibits. New
cattle barns and horse barns and pens
lor swine have been built this sum-
sner , and in few places of the country
will the housing accommodations of

number and quality of fine cattle ,
horses , sheep and hogs has crowned
the efforts of the association in pre
vious years , never before were so
many head of princely stock entered
at this time for exhibition. .Of course ,
jfrom the very name it bears , the In
terstate Live Stock Fair Association
makes the exhibition of stock in the
, lieart of this great stock raising re
gion its crowning feature , neverthe
less , while the stock on exhibition at
the Interstate Fair will compare-most
favorably with that of the exclusive
International show of Chicago , and
" American Royal in Kansas City , still ,
as a race meeting the fair of 1906
could stand alone.
For the harness events 240 animals
will compete for purses aggregating
1316,000. Already 175 running horses
'liave ' been entered for the jumping
events. From the horseman's point of
, view , the star attraction of the week
jwill be the wonderful speed exhibi
tion of the world's champions , Dan
( Patch , 1:55 % , and Crcsceus , 2:02 % ,
respectively the king of pacers and
'the ' king of trotters , which will take
| place Wednesday , the 12th. Dan
Patch , alone , last year , at the Minnesota
v seta state f.air , drew a crowd of 103-
000 people. This is the first time in
( the history of race tracks when the
'kings ' of the two speeds have been
seen upon a track at one time , and

, "Yes , the inscription is Arabic all
"Sure ! " replied the returned tourist ,
a. little miffed at the intimation of a

"You can read it better if you turn
the cup upside down , " suggested the
( friend ; and suiting the action to the
vord , , he showed the tourist that the
luysterious characters were nothing
jnore than " 1903" engraved in rough , ir
regular figures on the metal.
'The rascal ! " exclaimed the outraged
collector ; "he told me that it was an
Arabic inscription when he sold it to
me ! "
"He told you nothing more than the
truth , " was the reply. "You forget that
our numerals arc Arabic. "
But somehow from that moment the
collector lost interest in the souvenir

The season now Is at
hand when business gen
erally attains more im
petus in anticipation of fall and win
ter needs , and it is notable that the
basic conditions are of the most favor
able nature. While new demands are
not conjypicuous in any particular
branch of trade , other developments
furnish much encouragement The ex
cellent crops strengthen confidence In
a continued period of material prosper
ity , and this creates more disposition to
enter upon heavy commitments in man

A fall in values of grain and pro
visions is entirely seasonable , but quo
tations for raw materials maintain
their remarkable strength and the de
mands carry no sign of exhaustion.
Consumers' needs require increasing
shipments of iron ore. Building ma
terials remain in strong request and
new undertakings In future construc
tion have not diminished. The market
for lumber is more active and prices
have an upward tendency.
Movements of commodities show ex
pansion , and the earnings of the West
ern roads and lake carriers steadily
exceed those of last year. The total
quantity of grain handled at this port
aggregated 7,780,000 bushels , against
7,030,232 bushels last week. Live stock
receipts were 297,542 head , against
2G8GG6 head last weeli. Lumber re
ceipts , 52,812,000 feet , exceed both the
40,082,000 feet last week and the 51-
150,000 feet of a year ago.

The essential sound
ness of mercantile trade
is testified to by the July
and seven months' returns of failures
to Bradstreet's , which point fewer fail
ures and smaller liabilities than in any
but the best of years.
Shipments of fall and winter goods
are beginning. Some primary markets
are being visited by country merchants ,
who , on account of crop conditions ,
are expected to buy liberally. But the

1,401,090 this week last year , 1,379,198
in 1904 , and 8,831,199 in 1901. For the

DEDICATED TO LABOR CAUSE.
Unique Career Planned for Chicafffc.
Child Baptized Into Unionism.
An event of extraordinary nature took
place in Chicago Thursday , when the
( Hid of Harry G. Creel was baptized
into unionism , as other children arc 'bap '
tized into the church. The parents lave
dedicated it to union labor , Rev. Charles
Stelzle officiating , and John Mitchell
stood as its sponsor. In this dedication
the story of a life's thwarted ambition
finds expresion. The child of 18 months ,
yet prattling at its mother's knee , is to
become , if the hopes of the father reach
fulfillment , everything that that parent
aspired in earlier years to be , but of
which he failed to achieve realization. Ho
is to be a leader of men. His leadership
is to be for the advancement of mankind
and for the fulfillment of the doctrines
MRS. IIARBY G. CBEEL AND HEB SOJT.
of tihe golden rule. He is to preach the
brotherhood of man and the sanctity of
individual rights. His duty will it be ,
after years of preparation , to spread
throughout tlie world that which the sages
of tlie centuries Lave sought in their time
'to teach. It is tlie dream of the father
that when the infant shall arrive at man's
estate lie will be all ofthis and more.

The Russian workmen's council has
decided to call off the strike in St Pe

to the provinces , but there Is little
doubt that the workmen tbere will fol

More than iialf of the factories in

Tfnie for Strike Ill-Chosen.
Many of the trades unions positively
refused to join in It , the railroad men ,
whose co-operation was vital , could not
be induced to give the signal for a
strfce owing to fear that a majority of
the men would not obey , and there was
no sign of a serious peasant movement.
.While the repressions and arrests of
the leaders undoubtedly were a great
factor in bringing about tbe present
situation , it is apparent that the mo
ment was ill-choKen for a strike. The
people were not In the temper to sup
port it. As a consequence tbe revolu
tionary leaders , who really inspired it
with the intention of transforming tbe
movement into an armed uprising , have
suffered a severe loss of prestige , and
tbe proletariat organizations through
which they worked have been so ( weak

nart of the story
of one of the most
stirring days m the
history of Chicago bauking. Twenty-
two thousand depositors are Involved. ,
They come from the poorer districts on ,
the great Northwest Side. Many rre
foreigners , who are alarmed and fear
they may lose tbe savings of years.
Two are dead because of the strange
circumstances that -surround the clos
ing of the bank. Henry Koepke , gro
cer at 1773 North Kedzie avenue , heard
of the failure as he stood in a saloon ,
at 107C Milwaukee avenue. He carried
a pistol. As a friend rusbed up to him
and told him of the action of the bank
the grocer sent a bullet into his brain.
Joha E. WIsner , 1599 Milwaukee ave
nue , was standing in a drug store wh-m
the cry that the bank bad been closed
reached his ears. A moment later Le
fell to the floor and when persons
reached him lie was dead.
Bankers are unanimous in their claiwfl
that the troubles of the Milwaukee Ave
nue bank will not affect tbe financial
conditions of tbe city. They point to
the fact that the institution was not a
member of the Clearing House Associa
tion , but cleared through the American
Trust and Savings Bank.
Exciting scenes were enacted when

The government , which had prepared

more than local echoes of all this fe

more active state of terrorism , is ex

Slavs Urged to Rebel.
The former deputies composing tbe
jsocial-democratic and labor parties.
Polish and Jewish committees , and va
rious revolutionary bodies , in an urgent
appeal for constitutional rule , have
issued the following joint manifesto :
"To the Whole Nation : Citizens , a
"fortnight " has elapsed since the govern
ment dissolved the lower house of par
liament. It laughed- the national rep
resentation and set the whole people at
defiance. Russia has received this new
crime of the autocratic power in sullen
silence. The government rejoiced at
this victory , but the thunder of guns
at Sveaborg and Kronstadt proved this
rejoicing to be premature.
"The army and the navy have raised
tlie standard of insurrection against
the oppressor of the people. The roar
of 'the guns at Svoa'borg ' and Kronstadt
has given the signal for a new pan-Rus
sian attack on the autocracy. A new
and decisive struggle- for land and lib
erty - hasbegun. . The lessens of the past
will not have been in vain.
"The imperial ( manifesto of Oct. 30
proved deceitful and a 'state douma' is
without authority and unable to satisfy
a single national need.
"The people see now they can hope
for and expect nothing so long as the
state power is in the hands of its ene
mies. The object is not an unauthori-
