BurlfT. Major W. H. Bpera paid a warm
tribute to the women of the war. Mr. Tin-
ley said in part:
All Raaks Respond.
Forty-two years ago the perfect manhood
of this country, both north and south, obey
ing the behest of cnnnclences responded to
th rail to arms ana round themselves en
terlns the most cruel and bloody of fratrl
cldal wars, waged for and against the
preservation of the union and the Integrity
of our constitution. From every conceivable
employment we find the brave of the nation
rushing to tbo front, vlelng with each other
In their patriotic endeavors, and even from
the schoolroom tho youth answered the call
of duty. Monarchical governments havo al
ways looked upon republics In a pesslmlstlo
light. When the first shot was fired on the
fag by the southern states common. Indeed,
was the prophesy that another failure was
about to be catalogued against popular
form of government.
The Instantaneous response of our loyal
citizens to the call for troops nutcKly dlssi
Dated this thought or hope, we assembled
an army that knew nothing of a sollder's
life; raw and rude In drill and field maneu
ver, unacquainted with the restraint of
army life and discipline, yet the grandeur
of Its achievements has never been excelled.
The awful tempest of IStil drove their ship
of life from out Its natural course Into un
known seas, dissipating their fondest hopes
Into the furies of the gale-mlngllng shat
tered ambitions, with the spoon drift of the
crushing, mountainous waves. Guided by
the cruel hand of destiny it is lashed from
wave to rock with terrific fury until the
storm subsides and the heavens brighten
with the ravs of returning hope and the at
most total wreck Is safely anchored, but
the bulk of true and persevering American
manhood remaining upon which to recon
struct a life of prosperity, peace and happi
ness. It seems unjust that there should be
exacted from a single generation all the
anguish, suffering, privation ana aeatn re
quired to affix the seal of perpetuity on our
nation's covenant, and that the blessings so
dearly purchased should be so little theirs,
but descend to the succeeding line. Thus
does the patrimony of a nation descend to
us as the rightful Inheritance of loyalty and
What a great advantage the generation
reaching manhood since the close of the
war enjoys. The stability of the govern
ment under which we live absolutely and
forever settled by the suffering, privations
and life blood of the honored soldiers. The
greatest moral question a people was ever
called upon to solve, determined on the side
r riirht. conscience and good morals. The
alack pages of history recording the fact
that an Intelligent, Christian people everj
considered Human nesn a cnauei rorever
closed and securely sealed by the mingled
groans and prayers of wounded and dying,
rising to heaven in benediction from the
confusion of bloody battlefield, appealing to
a God of Justice and mercy for liberty and
Love of country "springs eternal In the
human breast." Every country and every
age have their heroes and their saints, and
their loyal successors delight in rendering
to them the benign honors of canonised
patriots. Our duty to country Is second only
to our duty to God. The two can never
clash, as divine precepts teach loyalty to
both God and country. Patriotism should
rot become dormant even in times of peace.
While the sound of cannon will thrill the
heart and arouse the passion of man . to
nobler deeds than stern necessity In time of
peace, yet patriotism should be plainly In
evidence at all times. ,
C. A. K. Services.
The' memorial services of tho Grand Army
of the Republlo were held at the First
Presbyterian church Instead of at the Con-
gregational, as previously arranged, owing
to the latter church undergoing repairs.
Rer. James Thomson, pastor of the Con'
arexational church, conducted the services.
The subject of his address was "The Rela
tion of the Civil War to tho Kingdom of
God." In which he said that the rebel
lion and the ' victories of the northern
army were predestined by God and but part
of God's plan for the civilisation aud bet
terment of this country.

NO MOVE TO CONDEMN SITE
City Attorney 1 aeertala Aboat Title
to tho Saagart Prop
erty, City Solicitor Bnyder has taken no steps
to begin condemnation proceedings sgalnst
the E. L. Bhugart property at the corner
of First avenue and Sixth street, selected
as the site for the Carnegie library build
ing as directed by the Board of Library
trustees a week ago. It Is understood that
Mr. Bnyder will report to the board at
Its meeting tonight that It Is doubtful If
a title can be secured to the property, even
by condemnation proceedings, which would
be safe from possible future attack and
recommends that the board choose another
site to which a title without any flaw can
Mr. Bnyder states that while It might be
possible to secure a perfect title to the
Bhugart property, after tedious and pos
sibly expensive proceedings In the courts,
there are a number of Important points
Involved In such an action as would be
necessary which have as yet. never been
passed on or finally adjudicated by the
courts of last resort.
It has been stated also by one of the
members of the library board that it would
be doubtful If Mr. Carnegie would con
sent to the erection of the building on a
site, the title to which might be ques
tioned and that In the event of the board
adhering to the determination to place the
library on such a site would withdraw his
offer of $70,000.
The question, It Is expected, will be, how
ever, definitely settled at the meeting of the
board tonight as the trustees are anxious
to get matters under way and avoid any
further delay If possible. The board Is
also expected to take action tonight In the
matter of selecting an architect to pre
pare plana for 'the building.
Aid for Raaalaa Jews.
Tho Hebrew cltlsens of Council Bluffs

ica to furnish relief for the persecuted
Jews In Russia. The meeting was attended
by practically the entire Jewish community
of the city and as a starter (200 was raised
for the relief fund, although a consider
ably larger sum, It Is said, will be sub
scribed here. '
These were appointed 'an executive com
mittee to take charge of soliciting further

In addition to furnishing financial as
sistance tho meeting decided to take care

cution and see to it that they do not be
come burdens on the community of such
places as they may locate.

CONTEST OVER LEGISLATIVE NOMINEES

While Earoate to Dick
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, May J4.-(Bpeclal.) The
republican county conventions and prim
aries are being held In the atste In great
numbers at this time in preparation for
the state convention, but In most cases
they are local contests, and these over
shadow all other matters. But It Is plain
from the nature of these contests that
factional lines have not been entirely for
gotten In the various counties of the state.
In a number of counties the old division
as "between Cummins and antl-Cummlns
still appears prominent. For instance. In
Blackhawk county, where there was a
bitter light for representative, It was fought
out on this line. C. A. Wise will be re
nominated for representative for a third
term. He was opposed to L. H. Beverln,
and at a primary In Cedar Falls township
Wise won by twenty-seven votes. He was
supported especially by the Cummins men.
In Hancock county, where It wes feared
there would be a bad tangle and no candi
date for senator would be Indorsed, the
republicans Indorsed Cole, who is a friend
of Cummins. This means that in all proba
bllity Senator Harrlman of Franklin will
not be renominated, as Cerro Gordo county
also has candidates. In Dallas county,
where the question was of Indorsing the
candidacy of Senator Hopkins of Guthrie,
an effort was made to bring out a candidate
In opposition, and ex-Senator Caldwell an
nounced himself a candidate, but at a con
ference held yesterday Caldwell retired
from the race and Hopkins will be renoml
nated easily. His opponent In Audubon Is
Asmus Boysen, member of the state com
mittee for the Ninth district. In Ringgold
county the convention selected a delegation
to the senatorial convention that will as-
sure the nomination of Marlon F. Stookey
of Leon for senator, tie has been bitterly
opposed to Cummins all along. In Poca
hontas county the caucuses made It certain
that Representative Gilchrist will be re
' In the selection of delegates to the state
convention but little attention Is being paid
In any of the counties to factional matters
and only the best republicans are selected.
A number of the old wheelhorses of the
party who have been relegated to the rear
for several years will reappear this time.

State Superintendent Barrett went to
Dickinson county Friday to attend the com
mencement of the township high school at
Terrll, which Is said to be the model town
ship high school In Iowa, under the con
solidated system. He had a remarkable
experience. He had to drive sixteen miles
across the country and found the roads so
bad that he was overtaken by darkness
and about S o'clock at night was struck
by a terrible storm of hall, wind and
lightning. He and tjhe driver were both
thrown out and the buggy was overturned,
and It was with difficulty they held the
horses while the hall fell upon them. They
got Into some water three or four feet
deep and It was a long time before they
were able to go on. He arrived at the
school thoroughly drenched and covered
with mud and friends had to fit him out
with dry clothing before he could ap
pear and speak to the fair graduates of
the school. He reports that the storm
was general In the north part of the state
and that the headwaters of the Little Sioux
and othsr streams were so flooded that for
miles It appeared as though the land was
one great lake. Tho damage to crops was

TALK OF ONE DOLLAR WHEAT
Indiana Society Urges Farmers to Oombins

INDIANAPOLIS. May J4.-The American
Society of Equity tomorrow will issue a
bulletin to the farmers of the United States
demanding an increase In the price of
wheat, giving arguments that the minimum
price of wheat should be $1 and urging the
farmers of the United States not to sell for
less than $1. The society has been orgsnlsed
with this city as national headquarters, for
the purpose of maintaining higher prices
for farm products by co-operation of the
farmers of the country, and this Is the first
formal demand for an Increase In prices as
the result of the combination.
The bulletin sots, out the claim that this Is
an era of unequalled prosperity, demand for
commodities Is unprecedented, labor recelv
lng higher wages than ever before and the
demand for and consumption of wheat Is
greater than ever before, with a low visible
supply. The bulletin then says:
It Is evident that the American farmers
cannot produce over about twelve bushels
per acre on an average, which at M cents
per bushel represents $10.5 per acre to
cover all the work, seed, twine, threshing,
marketing, etc., an amount that scarcely
equals the simplest macnine mat tne far
mer buva. vet this only represents a small
fraction of the Investment, capital and
Who dare sav. in tne lace or mese evi-
ences. snd considering the higher range of
values for nearly every other commodity
produced In the country, that wheat at this
time and lor tne next crop is not eqiiusniy
worth $1 per bushel on the basis of the Chi
cago market, and that other farm crops
Mould be on a corresponding Da sis r -Farmers,
keep this In mlnd.tkeen $1 whest
($1 at Chicago) before you and you will get
It as sure as the sun rises In the east and
sets In the west. Above all, however, we
implore you, don't be foolish. When you
get the equitable price let It go. Sell on the
basis or $1 and no less, but don t noid lor
more or you may run up a surplus which
must eventually compel lower prices.

and uncertainty Is the democratic portion

China Playing; Doable.
There la a growing suspicion In the minds
of' those most familiar with diplomatic at
fairs that China and Russia together are
playing a deep game which la to result
In concessions to the former country from
both the United States and Great Britain.
The extension of the Chinese exclusion
act by thj last congress and the present
agitation of similar legislation for Bouth
Africa threatens to curtail still further the
area open to Chinese coolie labor. On the
other hand American business men having
large commercial Interests In Hawaii and
the Philippines are again urging the propo
sition to open the doors of those two de
pendencies of the United States to Chinese
labor In order that workmen may be se
cured to carry on the great enterprises
In those Islands which are seriously ham
pered today because of a lack of laboring
The United States and Great Britain have
together Insisted upon an "open door" pol
Icy for the entire Chinese empire. The In
traduction of railroads Into Manchuria
promises to result in a wonderful develop
ment of trade In that vast territory, and
It Is believed that China sees Its opportu
nlty to force this country at least to
admit Chinese labor In return for trade
concessions which are so persistently de
manded. The commercial treaty between
the United States and China will expire
by limitation In about another year. Al
though LI Hung Chang, the greatest of
all Chinese statesmen, has passed away,
the empire Is not without diplomats com'
petent to cope with Americans and Euro
peans. Among them Is Wu Ting-fang, who
has a personal knowledge of the desires
of American business men and capitalists
to secure commercial arrangements with
the Chinese empire and he knows that
these Americans are powerful enough in
this country to force their views upon the
senate. Mr. Wu carried back with him to
China an enormous amount of data upon
which to base the outline of a new treaty
to take the place of that which will cease
to be In operation within the next fifteen
montha If, therefore, there Is an under
standing between Russia and China by
which the csar Is helping on the Chinese
bluff It may be that the forthcoming new
treaty will provide at least for the admis
sion of coolies under certain restrictions
Into the Hawaiian and Philippine Islands
In return for opening up the Chinese em
pire, Including Manchuria, to American en
terprise. Interesting Work la Manehnrla.
Perhaps the best posted man . In the
United BUtes upon the subject of trade
possibilities In Manchuria is Mr. Rockhtll.
formerly assistant secretary of state and
at present chief of the Bureau of Amer
ican Republics. Some years sgo Mr. Rock-
hill spent many months In Manchuria and
In portions of Thibet and aa a result of
his observations he published an exceed
lngly interesting volume, under the aus
pices of the Smithsonian Institution, en
titled "Diary of a Journey Through
Thibet and Manchuria." This volume,
while not written with the idea of produc
ing a commercial textbook upon the sub
ject of trade possibilities of that region.
Is nevertheless replete with valuable In
formation concerning the customs of the
country. Its products and possibilities. Mr.
Rockhlll's work has not obtained very wldo
circulation for the reason that only a lira
tted edition was published. But the demand
fgr It has been so great of late that It Is
probable that congress will authorise Its
reprinting and Its general circulation will
give American business men a far better
opportunity to ascertain what Manchuria Is
than they are able to do at the present
Baeealatloa Which Failed,
There are people In nearly every large
city In the United States who will be ln
terested In hearing the last chapter In a
great speculation which combined business
and religion and In which capital from
every state In the union was Invested.
During the first days of the Harrison ad
ministration two capitalists from Phila
delphia bought a large tract of land on
the upper Potomac, which they cut up Into
building lots and which they connected to
the city by a trolley railroad. Twenty
acres of this land was set apart for a
"Chautauqua." Buildings and other Im
provements costing nearly $300,000 were
erected and an association was formed for
conducting religious services. Nearly 100
small cottages were erected, a magnificent
pipe organ was Installed In a vast audi
torlum building and for one season the
"Chautauqua" flourished. But It never was
attempted again to hold religious meetings
on a large scale upon the property. In
stead the place was turned Into a summer
resort and for a few season light opera
was given by a syndicate of capitalists,
but owing to the long distance from the
city proper these ventures were not suc
cessful. For ths past year or two "Glen
Echo" has been conducted as a sort of park
tor the patrons of the trolley Una
The otter day the first moitgsge oa the
property wss foreclosed and the twenty
acres, with their $.m.0no worth of Improve
ments, were sold under the marshal's ham
mer for $13,000. The remaining property of
the suburb, which was originally designed
to furnish suburban homes for Washing
ton people, has receded to Its original wild
state. The streets and avenues sre grown
up to timber and underbrush and every
vestige of a village has vanished. The
plat books are still on file In the Mont
gomery county olerk's office and the Mary
land real estate records continue to show
the name of the first Mrs. Benjamin Har
rison and scores of her relatives and
friends as owners of lots, for which they
paid fancy prices and upon which beautiful
villas were to be erected within a year
from the date that the streets were cut
through. Glen Echo Is not even "a de
serted village of the plain." It Is simply a
piece of wild, nonarable land. In which
thousands of dollsrs were lost by people
all over the United States. '

PIERRE. B. D., May 24. (Special.) The
homestead situation here Is approaching
the old time rush of twenty years ago for
the lands cast of the river. The crowds
coming on the bl-weekly excursions over
the Northwestern road are Increasing with
every excursion, and the Inst one In here
brought over 300 people. Some were those
who filed earlier In the spring, coming out
to commence Improvements, and every one
of them bringing friends with them, while
most of the new people were making their
first visit. While It Is now necessary to
go at least thirty miles west of the river
to secure anything like a choice In lo
cations, the Jand Is being taken up more
rapidly than It was when It was only
necessary to cross the river to secure a
location. For the past two days every
available vehicle of any description which
could be secured has been pressed Into ser
vice to take out people to look over the
country either as buyers or homesteaders,
