MAKES SPEECH ACKNOWLEDGING HONOR
Resolutions Endorse the National Ad
ministration and the Course of
the Iowa Delegation
The republican convention of the Ninth
congressional district of Iowa, held yes
terday morning In Council Bluffs, was a
love feast, pure and simple, and not only
was Congressman Walter I. Bmlth ac
corded a -unanimous and moat entbustaatie
renomlnatlon, but his record in the na
tional house of representatives was en
dorsed In a most flattering manner. On
state and national Issues the convention
placed Itself squarely on record by adopt
ing tbe following resolutions:
Resolved, That we cordially Indorse the
wise and patriotic administration, of Presi
dent Roosevelt and congratulate the coun
try on the fact that the untimely death of
President McKlnley caused no break in
carrying out the policies announced by the

prudent and business-like management of
the affairs of the state under the adminis
tration of Governor Cummins.
Resolved, That we take pride In the fact
that the republican party has kept and
performed the promises and pledges made
In Its last national platform, and the
progress, prosperity and development
which have come to our people as the re
Resolved, That we assert the sovereignty
of the people over all corporations ana ag
gregations of capital and the- right resid
ing In the people to enforce such regula
tions, restrictions or prohibitions upon cor
porate management as will protect the in
dividual and society from abuse of the
power which great combinations of capital
yield. We favor such amendment of the
Interstate commerce act as will more fully
carry out Its prohibition of discrimination
In rate making, and any modification of
the tariff schedules that may be required
to prevent their affording shelter to unjust
combinations of capital.
Resolved. That we earnestly favor tho
policy of reciprocity advocated by Blaine,
McKlnley and Roosevelt, to which we, as
republicans, nre committed.
Resolved, That we stand by the historic
policy of the republican party in giving
froteetlon to home Industries and point for
ts ample vindication to the extraordinary
rapidity which our national resources have
been developed and our industrial and
flnanclnl Independence secured. We favor
such changea In the tariff from time to
time as becomes advisable through the
progress of our Industries and their chang
ing relatione to the commerce of the world.
Resolved. That we Insist that In our re

cation of the principles of reciprocity as
will protect the Interest of the people of
the United States, as well as those of
Resolved. That we endorse the record of
our congressman, Hon. Walter I. Smith,
and are proud of the high position he has
taken In the political affairs of Our coun
try, and we recommend that he be nomi
nated by this convention by acclamation.
All Counties Represented.
Every one of the nine eountles compris
ing the Ninth congressional district was
represented by its full quota of delegates
when L. 8. Robinson of Olenwood, chair
man of the congressional committee, called
tho convention tooder at 11 e'ejock In
the south court room of the county court
house and Darned John, W.' Foster oj Guth
rie Center as temporary chairman nd D.
C. . Mott of Audubon as temporary' secre
tary. , Mr. Foster on assuming the gavel
made a short but rousing speech, in which
he paid a glowing tribute to the late Pres
ident William McKlnley.
The convention got down to work by au
thorising the chairman to name three
members as tbe committee on credentials,
as follows: D. B. Miller, Montgomery
county; A. H. Bayre, Outbrle; H. W. Wil
son, Audubon. The committee promptly
reported that there were no contests and
the convention proceeded to name the
committees on permanent organization and
The committees were named as follows:
Permanent Organisation B. B. Freeman,
Adair county, Ernest Powell, Audubon; J.
B. Rockafellow. Cass; N. Wright, Outb
rle; M. C. Dally, Harrison; W. P. Wort
man, Mills; E. Mills, Montgomery; S. L.
Johnson, Pottawattamie; D. J. Korth.
Resolutions A. P. McDowell, Adair
county; W. I. Copeland, Audubon; C. U
Campbell, Cass; E. W. Weeks, Guthrie;
Fred Robblns, Harrison; H. J. Baird,
Mills; C. C. Platter, Montgomery: A. S.
Haielton. Pottawattamie; W. J. Williams.
On the recommendation of tho commu
te the temporary organisation was made
permanent, and following the adoption or
the report of tbe committee on resolutions
the convention did what it had assembled
to do by renominating Congressman Smith
As soon as the applause had subsided a
committee was appointed to escort Con
gressman Smith before the convention.
nits Thanks Convention,
In accepting the nomination Judge Smith
spoke in hearty terms of his appreciation
of tbe confidence and regard shown him
by the convention and referred briefly to
the work of tbe recent session of con
gress, declaring It the most Important in
its accomplishments of any session in time
of peace during the present generation.
He said, however, ' It was probable that
congress was not to be commended more
for what It had done than for what It had
not done, In that It had not dons any
thing to disturb the unprecedented pros
perlty that reigns throughout the land,
and In this connection spoke of the evi
dences of development and prosperity
found on every hand when on his recent
trip through the south.
Of the measures put through congress
Judge Smith first spoke of the bill passed
near the close of tbe session extending
civil government to the Philippine Islands.
He referred to the proclamation of tbe
president declaring peace In tbe archi
pelago, and said' the people of the Islands
would In time come to look upon the civil
government act with something of the
same sacred regard that we look upon the
Declaration of Independence. As an Illus
tration of tbe progress of civilisation tn
the Islands under American control he
cited tbe fact that whUe there were but
a little over 8,000 school children enrolled
In the islands when the Americans took
possession, there are now XSO.000 children
so enrolled. .
The second measure of the late session
of congress referred to by Judge Smith as
being of great Importance was the canal
bill, under which the Atlantle and Pacific
oceans are to be united under tbe auspices
of the United States, making It possible
for commerce from all points on our coast
to reach all sections of tbe world In the
shortest time possible. He declared that
the paasage of this measure wss due te
tbe efforts of Hon. W. P. Hepburn of lows
more than to the efforts of any other one
Makes Houses for On People.
A thirl great piece of legislation enacted
by congress aal referred to by the speaker
was tbe lirlgatloa bill, which prorlde that
the proceeds of the sale of public ' lands
shall be devoted to Irrigation. He claimed
for this measure that under Its operation
the arid lands of the west would be re
claimed for homes and farms for tbe many
who were now going yearly Into Canada
from tbe states. Fifteen thousands cltl
sens of Iowa had In the last year so left
their natlvs land and the land of the stars
and stripes and gone to a foreign country
to become subjects of the British crown.
The workings ot tbs Irrigation law would
tend to remedy this and give to these
homeseekers fertile lands beneath tbe
Referrence was also made by Judge
Smith to the repeal of the Spanish war
revenue law. At the seoond session of tbe
Fifty-sixth congress a reduction of $40,
000,000 a year was made in tbe tax and at
tbe recent session, before the end ot the
war in the Philippines, the balance of the
tax waa repealed, and thus tbs people of
the country were relieved ot a burden In
all of $177,000,000 annually.
With the naming of the congressional
committee ' the convention completed Its
work and adjourned. These comprise tbe
congressional committee: Adair county,
W. H. McClure; Audubon, H. B. Herbert;
Cass, C. L. Campbell; Guthrie, C. W. Cook;
Harrison, H. M. Bos wick; Mills, L. 8, Rob
inson; Montgomery, W. S. Ellis; Pottawat
tamie, H. L. Chambers; 8helby, E. Lock
wood. The committee re-elected L. S. Rob
inson of Mills county as its chairman and
E. Lockwood of Shelby county aa its secretary.

Preparing; for a Monument.
Information has been received by stats
officers to the effect that the Grand Army
post at Mount Pleasant has appointed a
committee to erect a suitable monumeut
In Forest Home cemetery, near Mount
I'lfeasant, In honor of Charles Shepbard, a
Revolutionary soldier, who lies buried In
a neglected spot In Henry county. The
grave of Shepherd was unknown for many
years, but the chapter of Daughters ot the
Revolution set on foot an investigation
and found 11 on a farm near Mlllspaugh's
mills on the Skunk river. They resolved
upon having the grave properly msrkeq.
Last winter the legislature appropriated
$500 for a monument to Shepbard, and tbe
post at Mount Pleasant was authorized to
have It erected. The monument will not
mark the grave, however, but will be in
tbe cemetery at Mount Pleasant. The
Daughters of the Revolution expect to see

Weather Crop Bulletin.
Weather bureau crop bulletin for week
ending July 21, 1302: The week was sea
sonably warm, with two or three fair days
for baying and harvesting on dry upland.
General rains occurred on the 17th to ltth
and severe local wind storms with heavy
downpours swept over extenelve sress In
tbs southwest, south central, southeast and
east central districts, causing damage to
small grain, corn and hay crops that can
not as yet be estimated.
The most damaging effects were wrought
in the section southeast ot a line from
Page to Dubuque, but nearly all parts of
the state suffered soms damage from ex
cessive moisture. The worst feature of the
crop situation U noted In tbe reports from
nearly all districts that tbe grain crops ars
ready to harvest and tbe fields are too wet
to be. entered by harvesters. Oats ars
badly lodged In one-fourth to one-half ot
tbe area seeded. Wheat and oats are gen
erally well filled and the damage by rust
Is not very great, but tbe situation is
critical and normal weather is Impera
tively needed to sava these 'crops. The re
ports Indicate that corn has suffered least
damage and tbe condition of that great
staple In well cultivated fields Is still quite
promising. Much hay is yet uncut and
much haa been spoiled after being cut.
Pasturage Is bulky, but not in prime con
dition tor stock In .the flooded regions.
Apples are badly wlndfallen in many locali

Murderer Makes Confession.
SIOUX CITY. Ia.. July 22. William
Numley, arrested at Deqlson. Ia., for the
murder ot Fred Powell, a Milwaukee road
brakeman, has made a full confession of
GOVERNMENT IS FAIR
(Continued from First Page.)
of Mr. Taft Is to know that nothing of tbs
kind could have been thought of.
Complimentary to President.
"Never did there reside in the White
House a man more fair minded and impar
tial in religious matters, more resolute to
give all classes of citizens the religious
rights granted to them by the constitution,
and to protect those rights than Theodore
Roosevelt During his administration It Is
unqualifiedly absurd to Imagine that gov
ernmental acts would be such as to deny
the proper religious rights of any people or
tribe over which floats the American flag.
"No stronger proof of fair-minded cases
In the settlement ot the religious question
in tbe Philippines could the administration
have given than to respond graciously to
the wishes of the Vatican that a messenger
from the American government should go to
Rome to discuss matters directly with the
pope and his advisers T American Catholics
should be forever most grateful to Mr.
Roosevelt for his noble action In this re
gard and should see In it the assurance
that whatever may be done In the Philip
pines, a spirit of high mlndedness and
Justice Is sure to be the dominant inspira
tion. Other governments would have gone
to work in their own way without a word
being said to the head of the church or a
counsel asked from him.
"If the American government sincerely
believed that the four landlord religious
orders of the Philippines those that bad
been for centuries intimately linked in
with the Spanish regime Its agents and
representatives, were an obstacle to the
pacification of tbe Islands, why see in
tiys an opposition to the whole church, as
It those four orders were specifically tbe
church and the native priests, tbe Jesuits,
Capuchins and Laiarlats, whom the gov
ernment does not disturb, did not also
represent It, and as If others, as well as
tbe government officials, were not of tbe
opinion that the peace of the islands
would be much enhanced by tbe absence
ot tbs landlord orders T
As to Schools In Philippines.
"And as to schools In the Philippines,
why not, when the presence ot non
Catholic . teachers Is told of, state that
out of a total of 6,000 teachers, 2,600 ars
Filipino Catholics T Why not state that
Father McKlnnon Is a member of the
school board of Manila T
'And wby, when mention ia made of non-
Cathollo teachers, allow the false impres
sion to go abrosd that many ot these were
ministers and active proselytlxersT
'And why not remember that by the law
of the islands, clergymen, who are min
isters in any place ot organised congrega
tions, may three times a week teach re
ligion ia tbe schools ot the place, the
condition that they be mlnlaters of or
ganised congregations virtually confining
the privilege to Catholic priesthood T
'Perhaps, Ideally, something more migni
be desired, but the conditions within which
tbe government is confined must be con
sidered and, at least, wben disadvantages
to religion are quoted, ths advantages that
are allowed should also be set forth.
"But. I repeat, the agitation I am re
proving only cornea from the few Amer
ican Catholics as a boay trust ui govern
mentand in the present Issues trust the
holy see and hold their souls In peace."

Cocke and Tom Lauderdale were hanged

Tbe crime tor which Cocke and Lauder
dale today paid tbe death penalty on the
gallows was committed in a Yazoo ft Mis

Blackburn and O. M. Phlpps, all more or
less under tbe influence of liquor, boarded
the train for tbe purpose of returning to
tbelr homes at Shelby. Pblpps tell against
O. M. Wray, an engineer, who was asleep
on a seat In tbe coach.
Wray asked Phlpps what he meant and the
reply came from Cocke that it meant that
he (Wray) must leave the coach. As
Wray started to walk out Blackburn tald
to Cocke: "What shall we do with that
"I vote t,o kill him," replied Cocke.
Cocke, Lauderdale and Blackburn then be
gan shooting at Wray as the latter was
trying to leave the coadh. Wray was
riddled with bullets and fell dead In tho
aisle of tbe car.
Cocke and Lauderdale were tried together
and sentenced to be hanged. An effort by

effectual, Governor Longlno refusing to In
terfere. Blackburn was given a life sentence, his
