Ever Held in the City.
ELKS ADD SOME' UNIQUE FEATURES
Rev. Job William Talks of the Re
lation f Labor to the Charrh
and tho Mission of
The labor unions and their friends and
the Elks .owned Council Bluffs yesterday
and there was something doing all the
time. The Elks expect to own the city
for the 'remainder of the week and keep
things bumming. The weather could not
have been more propitious, and it eem?d
as if everyone took advantage of the boll
day either to enjoy the festivities at tho
Driving park, where the labor unions had
their sports and exercises, or to tak in
the varlou attraction and Incidentally
part with some of their loose cash at tho
carnival, which opened promptly on sched
ule time at 1 o'clock In the afternoon.
The committee in charge of the Labor
day arrangement met with several disap
pointments, and the number of union men
In the parade was not nearly as great as
had . been anticipated, but this, however,
did not prevent this feature from being
a notable one. From a spectacular polut
of view the parade was one of the best
seen In the city for a long time. The ab
sence of many of the unions in the parade
was noteworthy from the fact tbat the
general prosperity which Council Bluff, In
common with the rest of the country ia
enjoying, wa responsible for this. Council
Bluffs Is enjoying a building boom and
many large buildings are In course of con
struction on which the work Is being
rushed. Contractor are pushed for time,
and carpenter, bricklayer, plasterers and
other mechanic preferred to make bay
while the sun shone yesterday and earn
extra wages by keeping at work Instead
of joining the throng of holiday seeker.
In consequence several hundred men be
longing to these union did not take part
In the parade, but when th day's work
wa over Joined the crowd at thaJDrlvtng
park and enjoyed the festivities for tho
remainder of the day.
It had also been expected tbat the
Omaha unions would take part in the pa
rade here, but owing to a change of plans
across the river they paraded there In
stead. Parade Starts on Time.
Th parade started shortly before 11
o'clock, forming on Pearl street and
marching to the ' Intersection of Main
street, then north on Main to Broadway,
then east to First street and counter
marched on Broadway to th Northwest
ern depot, where th column disbanded and
the several organization marched back In
separate bodies to their respective, bead
quarters. i . '
Heading the column was a detail of po
lice in command of Captain Maltby, the
veteran officer, who has been a familiar
figure at the head of many uch parades.
Then came Sergeant B. B.' Gardiner, pres
ident of th Trades and Labor assembly,
grand marshal of the day, with bis mounted
aides. Following the Musical Union band,
the members of which were attired In
natty white uniforms, came tho member
of the Council Bluff lodge of Elks, 820
trong, wearing white cap with purpl
bands, carrying canes of purple and' whit
and each member with a large rosette or
bouquet of the same color, those of the
order. The ' antlered herd waa greeted
with much enthusiasm all along the lino
of march by the thousands that thronged
the sidewalks. Then came Mayor Morgan
and the city officials and the speakers of
the day in carriages. The union. fol
lowed In this order:
Carpenter and Joiners, fifty In number.
Cigar Makers, forty-eight In number.
Leather Workers of Council Bluffs and
Omaha, thirty-five In number.

trlbuted at the fair and these alone con
stituted quite a show. The "Kentry gtor"
wagon with several Elks disguised rcu
ben created lot of amusement along the
line of march, a did several clowns on don
keys, which for the occasion had had their
ear transformed Into antler. Behind this
section came tho fire department with Its
apparatus gaily decked In th I.Iks colors,
the rear of the column being brought up by
floats bearing displays of business Routes.
The street were crowded all along tho
line of march and all day the city wna
thronged with visitors from surrounding
towns, who took advantage of the ono-fa.ro
for the round trip rata offered by the rail
road tor carnival week:
The exerclae at th Driving park besjan

pi were assembled there. When Mayor

peclal credit wa due blm for being on tba

wby he should. In the first place, he ald.
he had been a mechanic himself in Li

asserted, waa that" they did not stand
shoulder to shoulder as they should. The
unlens were too much 'engaged In securing
Increase of wage and for thla reaaoo
larg number of worklngmea were outside
instead of In th union. It should not be a
question of dollars and cent o much a
the question of the brotherhood of man. IT a
J unions should widen their borlson and j sy
more attention to the welfare of their fel
low workmen. The day would come when
labor unions, like fraternal aocleties, would
have to provide pensions for those- who a 1

Advantage of Organisation.
Hon. Emmet Tlnley wa the next speaker
nd took a his subject "Advantages cf Or
ganised Labor." Labor unions, he said,
were the outgrowth of necessity. Work ng
men In thla race of life had to face com
bination of capital and thl brought about
th necessity of labor unions. To be suc
cessful the union of labor must be as strong
and loyal as the union of capital. If not
it would not be effective. The purpose of
the labor unions, however, should not be
for the sole purpose of maintaining wages.
They should to a great extent be for the
benefit of the families, they should strive
to teach their members to give their fam
ilies greater opportunities by education.
The unlona also teach that children should
be in the nursery of the schoolroom and
not In the sweatshops. The organization
of labor means happier homes, greater com
forts for the laboring man, greater intelli
gence among the working classes and con
sequently the development of stronger men
and women, physically, mentally and mor
ally. The real leaders of labor today are
not the loud tongued blatherskite or the
demagogue, but men with brain and In con
sequence labor through Its leaders was abl?
to take the rank which It Is entitled to.
Postmaster Harelton spoke on "Labor
Legislation." The first requirement of
liberty, he said, must be the reelect fcr
law and a willingness to be governed. Same
people from their early surroundings and
teachings were opposed to any form of
government and formed a dangerous and
undesirable element. They should be first
taught that the government Is In reality
their friend. The first requ'slte for a good
government Is that a man thould be willing
to be governed. No government by direct
legislation can make any set of men rich
or happy, the laws must be such as fall
equally upon the big and the small, upon
the rich and the poor, such as to give
every man an equal chance for his liveli
hood. Legislation other than this would
bo class legislation. The making of gen
eral laws Is all that a government ought
to do. Referring to the question of strikes
he said that among union labor there should
be no room for mob law or anarchy. Union
men were more vitally Interested than any
other class In downing anarchy.
The apeaklng was brought to a close by a
short talk by Rev. Henry DeLong, who
told of the labor conditions In Council Bluffs
In the early fifties.
Following the exercises the program of
ports waa carried out. The automobile race,
which' had promised to be a feature of the
program, had to be called off for lack of
entries. Beside the sports there were
various form of amusement for the crowd.
Including a platform for dancing, which
was well patronized.
ELKS FAIR NOW IN FULL BLAST
Several ' Thoasand People Assist In
Making; the Opening; Day
The Elk' street fair and carnival opened
yesterday with a flourish of trumpets, or,
more correctly speaking, megaphone, and
tho first day' attendance was fully up to
expectations. During tho afternoon -' and
night between 6.000 and 6,000 people
passed the turnstiles. Up to 9 o'clock
4,500 tickets were sold at the gate, and
to these must be added the admissions by
seasons and' coupon ticket. Nearly 1,000
season tickets have been disposed of and
nearly as many books of coupon tickets.
While there are some finishing touches
yet to be put here and there In some of
th booths, practically everything was
ready for the opening yesterday after
noon. It. 1 generally conceded ,that the
business people of Council Bluffs . have
done themselves and their city proud, and
the decoration and general appearanc
of the booth with their elaborate display
excel anything ever offered to the pub
lic In thl section of the country.
The free attractlona offered by the man
agement proved to be all that bad been
guaranteed for them and were thoroughly
enjoyed by the crowd. The Ferris wheel
proved a most popular source of amuse
ment and It was kept busy revolving un

entertainment, Including a number of
turns never seen here before, and it was

Occasion In Fitting
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Sept. 1. (Special.) Th
Labor day celebration in De Molnr wa
more successful in every way this year than
ever before. The day was fine and a great
crowd turned out. . The parade was longer
snd contslnrd more men, representing a
larger number of trade organizations than
on any previous year. More than J, 000 per
sons were In line, the major portion of
them walking and In uniform, but many In
carriages, and with a large number of girls
and Women In carriages. There were four
bands in the parade. About fifty organiza
tions were represented. The only feature
of the parade that was out of the ordinary
was the references to the strike on tne
telephone system of the Iowa company.
There waa a banner carried bearing this In
scription: "To be or not to be. It's up
to the Iowa. Organized labor haa come to
stay." A large transparency on a wagon
had a map of Iowa, showing the location of
Des Moines and 'Council Bluffs, with lines
drawn to St. Paul and the location of Red
Oak, the home pf Judge McPherson, with
the statement: "The Iowa's long distance
Injunction." Thl referred to the injunction
cf the striker In De Molne by Judge
Eanborn, at St. Paul.
The parade was somewhat marred by
an accident, an 8-year-old boy, David
Levlch. being (truck by a hone and run
over, his leg being broken.
There was the. usual line of sport and
picnic for the day. ' The address before the
laboring men was at the state fair ground
and wa given by S. J. Kent of Lincoln.
Mr. Kent denounced government by In
junction and hi remark on the local con
ditions were heartily cheered. He said the
granting of injunctions by the judiciary
was judicial tyranny, nothing more nor less.
He argued that the members of labor or
ganizations had the same right by pass tbo
store of the man who was not their friend
as had the Odd Fellows or Mason or Wood
men to trade with their brothers. Refer
ring to the strike of the telephone girls he
said that no threats, no intimidations had
been used and that the chivalrous fight of
the men for the rights of the girls was the
more necessary Blnce they were girls. He
emphasized the necessity for organization,
the b'gher civilization created and the
broadening and .ennobling Influence such
organizations have upon their members.

been engaged ' for some time In urging

the same time It Is known that a large
number will be on hand who will Insist

reference to the ut.erance of the party.
The democratic congressional convention is
to be held In De Moines tomorrow, but
the question of candidates for the con
gressional nomination and for th stats
ticket baa 'not yet been considered. It I
believed the conventions will be but poorly
There Is ' not a particle of foundation
for tho statement which have been sent
out from Des Moines to the effect that
the presidency of the Iowa State college
at Ames has been offered to Secretary
Wilson of President Roosevelt's cabinet.
Individual members of the board have
thought of Secretary Wilson In connection
with thl matter, but the board ha taken
no action and ha not even considered
the presidency question. The objection to
Wilson as to some of the others who have
been mentioned a possible candidate, la
that tbey are too old. Th members of
the board declare they want a msn lor
president who ' Is young and active and
has crowing qualities. No meeting or tne
board was held' last week and none will be
held for at least two weeks and It la
uncertain whether "the board at th next
meeting will take up the matter of the
presidency. There haa been no agreement
aa yet to put off selection of the president
until a certain time In the future, moat

Safe From Summer Complaints
All mammas, and papas too for that matter, dread the heat of summer with
it's danger for the little folks, especially the babies. It is simply heart-breaking
to read year after1 year about the great death rate among children caused by
the summer s heat. Yet it is easy to protect the infants against all
summer complaints, because we know that all these fearful perils have
their beginning in stomach and bowel troubles, and we have a perfect
family medicine that will keep the delicate machinery in a child's
body clean, regular and in healthy working order in the hottest
weather CASCARETS Candy Cathartic. The plump, bouncing,
crowing baby shown here is a CASCARET baby. He feels that way
winter and summer. Nursing mammas take a CASCARET at bed
time, and it makes their mother's milk mildly purgative and keeps
the baby just riglit. Older children like to take the fragrant, sweet
little candy tablet, and are safe from colic, gripes, diarrhoea, summer
rash, prickly heat and all the mean troubles that summer brings with it.
