WHO IS A SUCCESSFUL MAN?
JUt. H. W. Starr Pointi Out Where Many
Make a Mistake.
WRONG MEASURE FOR SUCCESS IS USED
Iadlrattena that Labor Is Gradually
rroarrrssln to Defter Things,
Tboaah Present System la
For the second of his series of sermons
on the labvr problem Rev.. H. W. Starr,
rector of St. Faul's Episcopal church, took
'as his topic ycrterday morning 'The Chris
tian Standard of' Industrial Success." He
aid In part: , .
Theoretically this looks like a self-evident
proposition, with only affirmative an
swer. Vet, practically. It has been denied
by every Industrial system of which we
have any record. The science of political
economy Is supposed to determine the right
relations between capital and labor, yet
Its standards in the past have been purely
material. It has no regard for man as a
man, but solely as an Instrument for pro
ducing und distributing wealth. There has
been no change In this attitude until re
cent years. - ,' .
The average business man In America
use the old standard more than the new
in determining any kind of Induxtrlnl suc
cess. The individual Is said to be a success
If he lax made a fortune and a failure
If he has lost one. The newspaper has the
blffffest nlnnt. mnat workmen, mrcest clr-
, dilation h evidences of Its hucccks. The
college hs Its success Judged by the
amount of Its endowment or else of It a
buildings or fnculty. Tho church has Its
success Judged by the size of Its building,
numlicr of rented pews, salary paid min
ister, 'the nation Is often Judged by the
same standard. Yet all these are purely
material tests. They Indicate only ma
terial success: thev have chiefly to do
with food nnd raiment and very little to
do with "life." They either positively'
deny or else negatively Ignore Christ's
question: "Is not the life more than meat
and the body than raiment?" Christ asks
not bow muoh wealth a nation Is pro
ducing, but what kind of men It Is making.
The average business man of today Is
inclined to say the chief business for men
Is to make money; after he has made all
the money he needs to carry out his plans,
he can then turn his attention toward
ministering to Ms Intellectual or aesthetic
or spiritual needs. In other words, having
first used himself efficiently as a tool for
making money, he can then devote some
email part of his - remaining lire to the
'making of character.
Conditions Are-' Improving. 1 '
There are only four systems of employ
ment slavery, feudalism, socialism and the
wage system. Broadly speaking we may
uv that the tendency-of the wage sys
tem has been to separate men Into two
classes, the tool-owners and the tool-users:
for the Introduction of machinery and the
organization or laDor nave oeen me iwo
forces whloh are largely responsible for
this change which has generally prevailed
since the days of feudalism. ' The wage sys
tem has aone hand -In- hand with modern
civilization and has largely helped to make
It what It is.
Because, under thla system a few men
have amassod such fortunes as were never
dreamed of In other times. There la a
common Impression that worklngmen of
today . are receiving a smaller share of
wealth and are Buffering greater hardships
from the oppression ..of the propertied
classes than they did before this change
took place. That there Is some Justifica
tion lor the feeling. I admit, and I shall
try to discuss the system from that point
of view next Sunday. But that the laborer
today la generally In worse condition than
he was under either slavery or feudalism or
before the use of machinery In manu
facture became general would be hard to
prove, for all the facta nt hand would
eem to Indicate the reverse.
But. Kiutove tall 4 (lie 'materia? advantages
which the Wage system has over slavery
or feudalism or socialism. It certainly tends
to produce better men. It demands and
It also creates a higher Intelligence; It im
poses responsibilities in proportion to one's
ability to bear them: it stimulates a spirit
of Independence, and It mal.es it perfectly
possible for the most ambitious to rise
u hlifh in the scale of success as hla own
ability entitles him to rise. But this is
tne nrigntor siae or ins picture, inere is
another side also for we have not yet
reached the perfect Industrial system. The
workman still haa his grievance and cer
tainly not ail of them can be said to be

SOME! CHANGES - IH, LEV V . LIKELY
Creek Improvement Mast Come Oat of
When the ' report . of the finance com
mittee on the proposed tax levy for 1904
Is presented to the city council tonight It
Is expected there wfll be some alterations
4n the amounts suggested to be levied for
joms of tha funds.. The committee decided
on recommending a levy of 4 mills for
the Improvement fund with the expectation
that this fund could, be, drawn upon for
tho dredging of Indian creek. There seems,
however," to be a diversity of opinion as
to. the right of -the city to use thla fund
for such a purpose.' ' It has been pointed
out that this fund is designed to meet tho
cost of public Improvements, such as pav
ing, curbing, grading, etc., where the
abutting property Is of Insufficient value
to bear the total assessment against It.
Some of the aldermen are of the opinion
that the city has no right to use this fund
for such purposes as dredging tho creek.
They contend that the cost of this work
must be paid from 'the sewer fund or
posithly from the contingent fund If It can
be held that thla work was made neces
sary by unusual or extraordinary condi
tions, fhus warranting the use of the con-

Three Associations Hold Joint Session
Thursday and Friday of this week Coun
cil Bluffs will have as Its guests a large
number of newspapermen from all parts of

Southwestern I6wa Editorial associations.
The sessions of the Joint meeting of the
three associations will be held at Lako
Manawa In the Casino, which has been
placed at the disposal of the visiting news
papermen by the management of the re
sort. Headquarters will be established -at
tho Grand hotel. It Is expected that sev
eral hundred of the "newspaper fraternity
will be here.
Privileges of the resort at Lake Manawa
will be extended by the management to the
visitors and the Joint meeting will. It la
likely,' be devoted more to pleasure than to
Dullness, although a program of papers and
addresses of Interest to the profession has
been arranged for the different session.

features of the meeting will be a banquet,
which will probably be held at the lake, al

Assault Not for Robbery.
After making an Investigation yesterday
the police are of the opinion that the as
sault on Mr. and Mrs. H. O. Meade Satur
day night was not committed by footpads,
nor was It for the purpose of robbery. Mr.
Meade has recently been engaged In locat
ing homesteaders In Loup county, Ne
braska, and It is alleged has aroused the
enmity of some people Itj that county. The
police said yesterday they were confident
the assault was committed by two persons
who had a grudge of some kind against
Mr, Meade, and it waa their evident inten
tion to lay him up so that he could not re
sume his business of locating homesteaders
for some time. This theory of the police
regarding the assault they claim' Is sup
ported by the fact that two men from
O'Neill, Neb., were known to be in Council
Bluffs Saturday and they were aald to have
mnde Inquiries concerning Mr. Meade and
his place of residence. The police yesterday
were looking for the O'Neill, men. but It is
believed they crossed the river to Omaha
after committing the assault. Mrs. Meade's
outcries,, which .aroused .the neighborhood,:
It -Is believed alone prevented Mr. . Meade
from being more seriously beaten than he

The fourteenth volume of the Iowa Geo
logical Survey reports will be ready for
distribution In a few days. It will be an
unusually large volume, having 655 pages.
but It represents the work of eight years
In the investigation of certain matters. It
Is a volume that is devoted entirely to
the clay Industry of the state, to the clays
of Iowa and the products thereof. The
work has been in charge of Prof. S. W
Beyer, of the Stale college at Ames, and
one Of the special assistants In the geo
logical survey, assisted by Ira A. Williams.
Dr. Beyer entered upon investigation of
this subjoct about elghr years ago. He
has compiled here" the Investigation Into
the number and extent of the cloy beds
of the state, the character of the clays,
the results of many experiments In test
ing the clays and a census of manufactur
ing establishments engaged In various clay
Industries. The volume is profuse In il
lustrations. It Is Intended to be and is a
complete exposition of the subject, and
to stand for many years as a final au
thority on the subject. Here' axe maps
and diagrams and description of machin

Populists Call Convention.
The convention of the populists of Iowa
has been called to meet at the Iowa hotel

believe they will be able to gather a
larger number than usual at this conven
tion, as populist state conventions have

ISLES OF. GREAT RICHNESS
Little Flecks of Land In the PaelSe
that Are Veritable Treasares
The recent voyage of the revenue cutter
Manning, Captain McClellan'ln command,
to the Aleutian Islands, on the coast of
Alaska, has had memeorable results. Cap
tain McCellnn found, the streams of Attn
and of the other Islands crowded with
salmon. On Buldlr Island. In 52 degrees and
30 minutes north, he found new fur seal
rookeries. That this discovery may prove
to be of great financial value may be real
ised when It is considered that the rpvsnue
from the rookeries of the Prlbllof Islands
has amounted this far to over $.tO,000,000. On
Umnak Island the revenue cutter steamed
Into a harbor two miles long and three
fourths of a mile wide.
So strongly convinced are some of the
alert men of tho northwest that tho Aleu
tians are now destined to assume great Im
portance In the affairs of the Pacific that
a company has been formed to colonlzo the
archipelago. Wharves and storehouses are
to.be built and trading stations established.
Stock raising Is to be begun first on Akun
Island. There, It Is estimated, 60.000 head of
cattle can find abundant pasture the year
It la claimed that on account of the molli
fying Influence of the Japanese current the
Aleutian Islands have- a more desirable
climate than any part of the Atlantic sea
board north of Cape Hatteras. Aside from
stock raising, general agriculture Is to be
Inaugurated. It is stated that copper, oil
and coal are found on the Islands, and
that there la a great abundance of water
power, as In Japan. One town, called Jar
vis, has already been started In Lost har
bor. The problem of transportation will
not have to be solved, as In the Interior of
Alaska steamers to and from, the Orient,
Siberia, St. Michael and Nome now pass
dally, within a few miles, of some of the
best harbors In the archipelago.

coolest and most delightful spot In all S,

the big plaints to kill today was due to
lack of men.
"Our men are sticking perfectly," said
H, L. Elchelberger, general organizer of
the strikers. "Instead of there being any
defection from our ranks we have suc
ceeded In getting some of the strike
breakers to come out and Join us; Affairs
are entirely satisfactory to us with one
exception we would like to see this strike
"Whatever so-called bits of violence
there have been I am convinced have not
been at the instigation of the strikers or
by them. It has been simply the 111 ad
vised efforts of some sympathizers who
we wish would stay at home and behave
The streets In the slaughter house dis
trict wero practically deserted a".l day and
no violence was reported.

may be held tomorrow morning, the pres
ent chances of a settlement of the stock
yards strike depend. The nature of this
reported conference Is very Indefinite. It
Is asserted positively by some of the labor
leaders thnt a conference with the packers
will be held, but the packers will not af
firm or deny that such Is the c.!".
Last night it was reported that a propo
sition had been made to J. Ogden Armour
Just as he was leaving this city for Bos
ton, and he suggested that it b" submitted
to the other prickers. This, It Is claimed,
hajt been done by the labor lenders nnd
the conference will be held In the morn
ing. The only packer who would discuss the
maJUer tonight was Ia F. Swift, and hi
wns non-committal. The most specific
I statement that he would rhnke was:
i "80 far os I know, no conference will
J lie held." Mr. Swift was Insistent that the
I words "So far as I know" be Incorporated
I In bis reply. The nature of the proposl
' tlon said to have been made to Mr. Armour
: by the labor leaders Is not known,
j At a meeting of the market wagon drlr
; ers, held this afternoon, It was decided
to declare a boycott against such retailers
as buy meat of tho packers where mon are
Tho men will, moreover, refuse to do any
of the work that wns formerly done by
the men now on strike. This Is the ex
treme action that will be taken by the
teamsteYs during the present struggle.
There was very little rioting In the yards
this afternoon and tonight. A number of
men said to be nonunion men, employed
In the stockyards, were attacked and
beaten by strikers, and James Bristol, a
molder, wns terribly beaten by two men
who took him for a strike breaker. Bris
tol Is employed In an iron foundry and
has had nothing to do with the strike.
DEMOCRATIC FEUD IS KEEN
(Continued from First rage)
nearly thlrty-flve years Mr. Roesselle has
been connected with that famous hostelry
from which has gone to his Inauguration
every president but two In half a century.
It has been the abiding place of prince
and potentate, statesmen and politician,
and the hobnobbing place for the wealth,
culture and refinement of tho nation hnv
Ing social or business engagements In the
national capital. Roesselle was a strik
ingly handsome man, but pompous to a
degree. He came to Washington from
Albany, N.' Y., Immediately after the close
of the civil war to enter upon the man
agement of the Arlington. It Is related
that the late W. W. Corcoran, whose
estate still owns the Arlington, was not
greatly Impressed with Roesselle, and ev
ery morning Mr. Corcoran would appear
in the lobby of tho hotel for the dally
rent. That continued for a number 6f
and appetizing or just
means better lunches every day because it is
always sweet and fresh. No taint or taste to
spoil the lunch. The airtight package keeps
the butter fresh. Ask your dealer for it then
lunch with satisfaction.

yearn. Before coming to Washlngtoi
Roesselle and his father were marmgrr
of the old Prlevsn house at the No
York ripltnl, nnd It wna there he begs,
to know the men who afterwards becara
a power In the councils of the nntlot
Rosi-oe Conkllng was probably the onl
man who ever took a complete fnll on
of Roesselle. Shortly after Conkllng'
election to the senate, Roesselle, al
welled up with pride, announced In hi
most pompous tone that Confcllng 'woub
make the Arlington hla Washington home
that he had known Conkllng for year
and that Conkllng tailed lilm Theodor
and ho called Conkllng Roscoe. Event
uaily the lordly Conkllng put In an J
pearance. There was hustling to nnd tn
about the lobby when the Imperious aen
ator from New York placed hla handba
on the clerk'a desk. Conkllng had not ya
affixed hla name to the register whet
Roesselle rushed out from hl room behlm
the counter and said tn the most patron
Ixlng way: "Roseoe, my dear boy, I an
delighted to see you. It Is a grent pleaa
ure to see you as one of the great met
of tho nation, marching up to the cnplto
of the United States."
Conkllng pulled himself up to Ms mo
superb height and then, with wltherlni
scorn, aald to Roesselle: "I am senator U
you, sir." Then he motioned to the lackej
to take up hla luggage and ho went ovei
to Wormley's, never setting foot insldt
the Arlington from that day.
Conklln and Vest Enemies.
Speaking of Conkllng, the death of Sena
tor George Graham Vest recnlla the fair
that Vest never permitted Senator Conk
llng to come voluntarily within the rung
of hla vision. Tho two men never spoks
tjut -once to each other while they were In
the senate. The fact Is explained by tha
Imperious temper of Conkllng and th
sturdy Independence of Vest. Soon after
the Missouri senator came to Washington
he. In company with three or four new
senators, was Introduced to Conkllng at
tho citpltol. Among the number wtn a
Jovial, whole-souled senator from the
southwest, somewhat advanced In years.
The day after they met Conkllng the
were sitting In the senate lobby when tha
door opened and In strode Senator Conk
llng. As he entered the southwestern
senator arose and,' extending hla hand,
"Good morning,' Senator Conkllng. How
are you?" , . .
Senator Conkllng alightly nodded hla
head, pressed hi thin, bloodless lip
tlghby together and passed the. old sen
ator by without further recognition. Sen
ator Vest observed Conkltng's manner and
keenly resented It. From that day he
never spoke to Conkllng except as "The
senator from New Vork." He took the
position that he oould not permit ' himself
to be exposed to the rebuff he had aeon
administered by Conkllng to his friend,
from the southwest.
