EXECUTIVE COUNCIL TO ACT IN MATTER
Board of Managers that
4saaaa Bnlldln Be "old and Head,
eaartera Moved to t. Loo la
There wii something of a actuation when
th report of the board of manager to
the executive council of the Woodmen of
the World was aubmltted yesterday after
Boon, and while there wss little discussion
the recommendation being referred with
out debate to the committee on resolu
tion of the oouncll, there will be debate
loud and interne when the committee
make lu report.
The recommendation of the board of
managers covered many phase of the
work, but the moat Interesting waa the
recommendation that the building now
owned by the order In Omaha be sold a
oon as possible and the board be empow
ered to remove the headquarters of the
order to Kanaaa City or fit. Louie.
The Woodmen of the World ha a pe
culiar form of government. The sovereign
camp meets once in two years and In
alternate years the executive council meets.
Once in two months the sovereign com
mander calls to headquarters three mem
bers of tho board of managers, which has
advlro, powers. The present executive
council is composed of Sovereign Com
mander J. C. Root, Sovereign Clerk John
T. Yates, Sovereign Advisor P. A. Falken
burg of Denver; Sovereign Banker Morris
Eheppard of Texas; Sovereign Sentluel B.
W. Jewell of Iowa; Sovereign W. T. Slmrall
of Mlsdsstppi, and Sovereign Watchman
D. E. Bradebaw of Arkansas. The board of
managers Is composed of A. C. Fine of
Virginia, W. A. Fraser of Texas, H. H.
Scott of Pennsylvania, J. E. Fitzgerald of
Missouri, N. B. Maxey of the Indian Terri
tory, C. K. Irwin of Wisconsin, and C. C.
Farmer of Illinois.
Three Managers Art.
At the meeting of the board of managers
which adopted the resolution calling for
the sale of the Omaha property there were
present members Fine, Fraser and Scott,
and they all voted in favor Of the plan,
giving as their reason that while the order
apends thousands of dollars annually In
the city the people do not teclprocate, and
s proof of their claim they said that many
of the towns of the country much smaller
than Omaha had more members in the
order and that the aociety waa given more
attention by press and public. The recom
mendation of the board will not become
effective unless adopted by the executive
council and opinion In that body Is divided.
The sovereign commander and the sover
eign clerk, with some of the other mem
bers of the council, are in favor of holding
the building as an asset of the emergency
fund and placing its returns in that fund.
Borne of these desire to erect a lodge
bulldlna lu this city, while some are In
favor of adopting the report of the board
of managers. As the members of the
tvoard of managers are also members of the
executive council there will not be wanting
support for the recommendation.
The council yesterday afternoon sepa
rated Mississippi from. Jurisdiction F and
placed it in a separate Jurisdiction to be
known as Jurisdiction M. This was done as
the stats ha now 10,000 members, which
entitles it to be a separate Jurisdiction.
The change is simply political and has no
bearing upon the beneficiary fund. j
DIETZ TALKS OF sfT PIERRE
Omabaa Gives Ills Observations at
the Island of Mar.
C. N. Diets, who has made several visits
to the Island of Martinique, made some In
teresting statements regarding the condi
tions existing there with reference not only
to the topography of the country, but also
to the people.
"It must be remembered," eatd Mr. Diets,
that there is a vast difference between a
eountry In which French Influence predom
inates and ons In which Spanish customs
and traditions prevail. I have read state
ments made by a New York paper reflect
ing in serious terms upon the people of
Martinique. My observations do not egrc
with criticisms of that character. Of
course the people of tropical and semi
tropical countries differ in many respects
from thoss with which our people are gen
erally familiar, but, making reasonable al
lowances, the people of Martinique attract
one's attention because of their cleanliness,
tbelr Industry, their neatness of habit, their
Urbanity and the exceeding novelty of the
environment which Impart color and char
acter to their activities. St. Pierre is I
must correct myself by saying, with feel
ings of melancholy, was a beautiful city
Ituated a few miles from what ha proven
to be the terrible mount Pelee. A moun
tain stream ran through the town, the
water clear a crystal. Mount Pelee la
about 4,600 feet high and the configuration
f the slope toward Trinity bay, on which
ft. Pierre Is located, formed a natural
course for the flow of leva. The flow of
lava could not have taken any other course
than over 8L Flerre and. Judging from re
ports. It is not surprising that utter deso
lation exists where nature manifested her
self In her moat attractive forms.
"Of course. It Is well known," continued
Mr. Diets, "that tb chain of islands form

really the tops of mountain peaks, all of

found its way to both of these Is now
dumped st some more suitable spot.
"Measles, whooping cough, diphtheria and
scarlet fever are the only diseases which
are occupying our attention, at present,
and while there la considerable of each In
the city I do not believe It Is any more

the same precautions are being observed
with these as was done with the smallpox,

If the price of meat continues to ad

vegetarian cook book by Sidney H. Beard
will have a ready sale. The book Is en
titled "A Comprehensive Guide Book to
Natural. Hygienic and Humane Diet." The
book will prove especially useful during
the summer season, when vegetables and
fruits are In season and are largely In
favor. Many persona would be glad to
escape a flesh diet If provided with ade
quate substitutes. To supply these Is the
aim of this book, which gives practical,
reliable Information in concise form,
avoiding superfluous matter and "fadlsm,"
and supplying only such recipes as are
not so elaborate as to require the skill of
a French chef for their interpretation.
Many hygienic hints are included the pur
pose ot the whole work being to stimulate

book of wild flowers; It originated in the
fields) and It is intended to go back there.

course, not all of It was written on sunny
meadow and in shady mood, nor were all
of Its Illustrations made at ones from
specimens gathered during various botan

the word, nearly all of the book lot a direct
result of field work, ranging from New
Hampshire to Virginia."

ily, proprietor ot a boarding . house - and
guardian of the children of several deceased

The plan of putting the parents under

remonstrance the secretary has informed
the enumerators that they must report the

quired information that he may have them
arrested and prosecuted. The form of the

you to answer in the matter of census
