CROCKER'S BRIGADE MEETS
Twelfth Biennial Beunlon of Famous Or
ganization Closes Session at Waterloo.
ATTENDANCE IS DECREASING EACH TIME
tow Soldiers and Sailors Meet to Dia
stase Experlencea and Listen to
Address by Commander
- 'WATERLOO. Ia., Sept. 17.-(Special.)
The twelfth biennial reunion of the sur
vivors of the old Crocker Iowa brigade
closed In this city last evening after an
Interesting two days' session. The enroll
ment of old soldiers has been about 50,
thus falling short of that of 1W3, when, ut
the reunion at Muscatine, the attendance
was 828. Seventy of the wives of the vet
erans were present, so the visitors num
bered over top. Headquarters were at the
Logan hotel and it was here that tho
eomrades met and talked over old times.
The campflrea were held in the opera house
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. On the
first evening a large audience, composed
mostly of old soldiers, was oa hand to heir
the fine program that wae prepared; Col
onel W, H. Michael of the Navy depart
ment at Wushlngton had been chosen two
yaars ago to deliver the biennial addrens
to the old soldiers. His theme was "Iowa
BoldlefS and Bailers."
Having been a member 'of this brigade,
he was able to know exactly what the
soldiers had endured. He told chiefly of
' tha campaign along the Mlnslwlppl and the
ptrt plaved by the' sailor boys of Iowa in
the grent clvll war.
Quoting the speaker: "From the begin
ning of hostilities In the west until tho
clbe of the war there was not a battle
fought near a navigable river that the gun
borte did not take part in aud render valu
able service: and when we consldrr the fu''t
that the Iowans were on nearly every vts- j
eel In the squadron during the war and
' that Iowa had commissioned officers on
twenty-suven ot them, n miy justly claim
as Iowans a full share in the honors and
glory won by the gunrooM on the Mlmla
slppl and its tributaries during the wir.
Furthermore, It establishes a subttantl il
and enduring claim of Iova sillers to have
their memory Inscribed on the monument
erected by the generous patrlotlxni of the
j aeatrthlnsT Abont Crocker.
General Jack Btlbba of- Chle.ijo. always
a popular speaker at the gatherings of old
soldiers, told several war stories and re
clte-J a number of poems, which were re
ceived with applause. Congressman Larey
and Governor Cummlus also spoke. The
former dwelt with sadness on the fact that
the ranks axe getting thinner each time
of reunion and the step of, the old soldier
less elastic with each succeeding year.
Governor Cummins told of his visit to
the ' old battlelields in the south recently.
He told how he regretted the fact that
when the war of the rebellion broke out
he was too young to go, and how he vowed
if his country ever needed him again he
would not hesitate to offer himself to the
cause. Thirty years later the1 call came
anJ, making his promise good, he presented
himself to the governor of the atate, who
replied that he was too old to learn the
soldier's way and life. He spoke felicit
ously and his speech made a deep impres
sion on his hearers.
Crocker's Iowa brigade has existed for
over forty years and is a firmly estab
lished organization. Marcellus M. Crocker,
in whose honor the brigade was named,
was born at FTanklln, lnd., February 6,
1830. In 1840 he removed to Illinois, where
he remained five years, and then came to
Jefferson county, Iowa. Though in poor
circumstances, he munnged to secure
enough education to alluw him to enter
West Point in 1847. Here he remained
two yearn, resigning at the end of two
years In order to support his mother.
Crocker studied law and settled in Dee
Moines in 18' 6. During the fall of 1800 the
young men of the town orgaalred a mili
tary company and unanimously made Law
yer Crocker their captain. Three days
after Fort Sumter was fired- upon Captam
Crocker tendered his company to Presi
dent Lincoln. It was accepted and Is
known in the hhttory of the war as Com
pany It. Second Iowa infantry. Crocker
was (ommisaloned colonel of the Thir
teenth Iowa infantry by Governor Kirk
wood early in ltt!2 for valiant service at
Corinth. He w.w placed In cqmmand of
the Icwa brigade and accompanied General
Sherman on his memorable march to ths
sea. General Creckor was compelled to
loaxo th field at Decatur, Ala., on account
of sickness and was sent by the War de
partment to tike a command In New
Mexico, hoping that he might there regain
his health. The hope was vain, however,
for on his return from New Mexico, in
l'tt. he died at Willard's hotel In Wash
ington. New OQleers lOlected.
The trluade wus composed of the Elev
enth, Tliirttcntli. FUUenth acd Sixteenth
regiments. Ihe Fifteenth was mustered in
ut Keukuk and Ihe others at Davenport.
At the business meeting which was held
yeterduy mjrning-the following officers
were elected: President Colonel II. H.
Itudo. Mount Vernon; recording secretary,
Charles W. Kepler, Mount Vernon; corre
sponding secretary, Mr. liuthnell, , Council
i:U.n, treasurer, Peter Klene, Dubuque.
The Invitation vf Clinton that the old sol
diers hold their next reunion in that city
was accepted. Heoausa of the Interest
shown by Governor Cummins In the
Crocker Iowa brigade he was chosen to be
speaker for IM. Toe meeting then ad
LIFE OF BRITISH SOLDIER
Career that Is Full of Hardship, Says One
Who Tried It.
CONTEMPT OF OFFICERS FOR PRIVATES
Han Who Fonght Doers Saye They
Were Superior, and Telle ot Char
acter of Various Kngllsh
David Gibson, an English soldier of twelve
years' experience, arrived in the city
Thursday from Montreal, Canada, in quest
of his brother, William Gibson, who at one
time worked at tho Willow Springs distil
lery. The latter left the employ of that es
tablishment several years ago, and Ills pres
ent whereabouts is unknown.
D-wid Gibson has quite an Interesting his
tory, having served with General Kitchener
in the Soudan and with Generals Buller,
Metheun, Roberts and Kitchener in the
South African wars.
"The treatment of the British soldier is
not all that It is cracked up to be," said
he. "In the South African war It was
pretty tough. The command to which I
was attached In that war marched afoot
from Capo Town to Modder river and Klm
berley. It was an awful march; much
harder than anything we underwent Jn the
Boudan. Our supplies did not keep up with
us half the time, and we were on half ra
tions almost continuously. We always were
under heavy marching orders, and the
weight we carried continuously, with ' our
guns, ammunition and kits, would reach
forty to forty-five pounda. v
Little Food In Coantrr.
"There wus little to live on off the coun
try. Then, when we did finally reach Kim
berley, we were not much better off. The
siege there had reduced provisions to a
very scant condition, and the rations were
small. The climate was new to us, and
many of the boys died of camp fever and
African fever. Our duty tours were un
ceasing and heavy. The Boers never grew
tired, but kept us on the watch constantly.
Things changed a little for the better when
General Roberts came, and supplies began
to get through more regularly.
"Don't let anyone make you believe the
Boers were not great fighters. England
never went up against braver or better
men, I think General Buller was one ot
our best fighters, but, thenv he had certain
weaknesses. Metheun was a good one, but
he went wrong at the end. While Roberts
was a splendid officer, the Boers were too
much for him. I think he respected the
cause for which they were fighting too
much to go against them as hard as ha
might with his forces. Kitchener was a
cold-blooded fellow and the beat generul In
Vthe English army. Ue bad no regard for
his men. Results was' what he was after;
and he never let up until he reached them.
Kitchener Compliments None.
"I never knew of General Kitchener com
plimenting an officer or a man for a heroic
act, and the Boer war was fuy of heroic
"One of the great drawbacks to the Eng
lish army in South Africa was in the char
acter of tho subaltern officers. They were
generally Inexperienced, soft-headed sons
of the nobility who were sent out with
very little preparation for the positions
they were to hold. The rank and file had
no confidence in them and then If a war
rant officer or private should, in an ex
treme emergency, undertake to act on his
own responsibility to get his detachment
out of a scrape that his company officers
had blundered into, he stood a better
chance for a court-martial than he did for
commendation or promotion. The English
soldier Is regarded as but an Inanimate
tool or piece of machinery. A horse or
mule is regarded with more consideration,
as it possesses a money value, while the
soldier has no value at all except In num
bers to accomplish a certain end. There
is an immeasurable distance between the
private soldier and his officer that can
never be overcome. The private fights be
cause of his pride as an Englishman and
because he believes tha English soldier Is
unconquerable. If he is beaten he lays it
to the incompetency of his officers. He is
conscious of their blunders, but he is not
permitted to prevent .them even when it
is possible for him to do so.
Pride ot English soldier.
"An English soldier is proud of his uni
form, his colors and his country and his
king. lit believes he la a part of the strong
arm of the 'greatest nation of earth.' Frlde
and contempt keep him from acts of in
subordination. As Kitchener Is as a general,
so is the private soldier of England as a
soldier impassive, stoical, fearless and de
termined. His ambition is to conquer, and
if he falls once, twice or a dozen times he
is ever willing to continue the attempt.
When success does come he thinks it but
the inevitable consequence of his qualities
as an English soldier."
WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
JENNINGS TO BOOK CONCERN
Presidios; Elder of Omaha Bet hod 1st
District Will Go to Kansas
WAYNE, Neb., 'Sept. 17. Speclal Tele
gram.) The agents 'of the Western Meth
odist Book Concern have asked Rev. J. W,
Jennings to become manager of the Kansas
City depository and the bishop has con
sented to the appointment. It la with re
gret that the pastors of the district part
wltn Dr. Jennings, as presiding elder. Who
his successor will be is yet a cabinet secret.
It is rumored that Rev. M. A. Head, pas
tor of the First Methodist Episcopal church
of South Omaha, will go to Deadwood, S.
V., for the eemlng1 year.
A n preliminary meeting ol the social
science department of the Woman's club,
held during the week, a general outline of
the year's work was decided upon that
promises to make that department one of
the most efficient and Interesting in the
club. Four general branches were decided
upon and a chairman appointed for each.
The property rights of women, Mrs. George
Tilden, chairman, is the first; the Nebraska
law to be given particular attention. In
dustrial conditions, Mrs. Smith, chairman;
civic Improvement, Miss E. E. McCartney,
chairman, and juvenile courts, Mrs. M. J.
Monnette, chairman, will be the other
branches, and the fourteen meetings of the
winter will be divided up among these sub
jects. The first meeting of the year will be
held soon after the state meeting in October

1111 memoeri or the department. As the
close unity of members is especially desir
able, a courtesies committee has been ap
pointed, with Mrs. Henry McDonald chair
man, for tha purpose of bringing members
into closer acquaintance, and during the
winter the little informal teas formerly
given by the department will be resumed
It was further decided that the regular
meetings should be opened with current
events on social topics, and Mrs. Clara Bui
bank was appointed cqalrman to act with
Mrs. Beach Taylor as "leader of this. The
department is under the general leader
ship of Mrs. E. B. Towle this year, with
Mrs. ClaraTlurbank first assistant and Mrs.
E. E. Adams second assistant. The regu

It has been practically settled that the
annual convention of the National Wom
an's Christian Temperance union will be
held at Los Angeles ln 1905. Although no
official announcement has been made of
this, Los Angeles has long wanted the
meeting, and the executive committee has
agreed informally that its invitation of
long standing shall be accepted next year
when special rates to the coast will insure
a large attendance. The Omaha, women
had hoped to secure the convention next
year, but it is believed now that, with the
meeting held in Philadelphia this year and
Los Angeles next year, they will stand a
be ter chance in 190, as the convention
will then rightfully belong to the middle
west, and their Invitation was presented in
formally son.e time ago. November S to
December 4 are the dates for this year's
meeting, which will be held at Philadelphia.
According to the Washington Star, the
manager, of tho republican national cam
paign have figured It out that Roosevelt's
election or defeat may te determined by
the vote of the women of the four suf
frage states and accordingly, they have
ecursd the services of Mrs. J. Ellen
Foster, president of the Women's Repub
lican club of the United States, to stump
Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah, for
Roosevelt. In these four states, women
vote on alT matters just as men do, and
it is anticipated that If the democrats
make a winning fight in the east, Colorado
may become a pivotal state and many of
the Parker managers believe that it will
be easier to carry the four suffrage states
than to carry Indiana. In some of these
states, the women cast from 40 to 60 per
cont of the entire vote. The Denver News
observes that a special brand of literature
Is being prepared for the women voters.
"The lessons of protection are being
brought home to her. The housewife is
shown how she enjoys protection on her
raspberry preserves, and how the home
market for perfumes can be Invaded by the
pauper-made extracts from Europe. Thla
Is supposed to convert her to the principles
of republicanism and protection. But It
will take something stronger than rasp
berry jam and perfume as the foundation
of a tariff argument to catch the western
" The Nebraska Women Suffrage associa
tion has Issued an outline for the Septem
ber program to be followed by the clubs
Of the state. Its chief features are the
roll call to be responded to by each mem
ber, telling what she has done for suffrage
during the summer vacation, and the elec
tion of delegates to the annual state con
vention to be held at Geneva in November.
The September Headquarters' Message
will be read, which includes a detailed ac
count of Miss Gall LaughlWs tour of the
state this summer and what was accom

Mrs. Nellie Beach Miller, corresponding
secretary of the Nebraska Federation of
Women's clubs, has Issued the following
announcement to the club women of the
state through the club presidents:
