Following the opening of the exercises
with music by Prof. Covalfs orchestra,
Rev. II. W. Starr, rector of St. Paul's
Episcopal church, delivered the Invocation.
President Rohrer read letters of regret at
being unable to attend from several promt- I
nent persons to whom Invitations had been j
extended and then General Dodge, who was
tendered a flattering ovation by the large
audience, delivered his address.
"Andtew Carnegie" General Dodge took
as the subject of his address, which was
an Interesting sketch of the life of the
man with whom the speaker had been on
terms of Intimate friendship since 1870,
when he and Mr. Carnegie were associated
In the work of the development of tho
south and southwest Inaugurated by the
Pennsylvania railroad. His address clearly
showed his admiration for the man through
whose generosity Council Bluffs now owns
a magnificent library building complete In
every detail. General Podge said In part:
Tribute to Andrew Cnraeatl.
Mr. Carnegie, In a letter to Judge Dillon,
formerly a distinguished cltlr.cn of this
state, explains how he took such an inter
est In the establishment of libraries. H-s
said: -I am a llbraiy builder through
heredity. My father was one of three
weavers who organized the first library
In Uumfernillne. They concentrated their
few volumes and opened them to less
fortunate people. When I was a working
boy In Allegheny City Colonel Anderson
opened his library, consisting of 4o0 vol
umes, to the working boys of the town,
and attended ever) Saturday to tho ex
change of hivikB, and In this way the por
tals of knowledge were opened to me. and
then I resolved that if ever fortune fa
voted me I would use it so that many
another working boy would have access
to books In which Is preserved as If by
magic everything worthy that man has
said or done."
Peterborough. N. II., Is stated to be the
first town In the I'nlted States to establish
a free library. In the year 1833 It voted to
employ a certain sum of money voted by
the taxpayers in t)ie purchase of books
for a free library, to be free to the people
of the town The success of the experi
ment brought about the legislation of 1849
by which New Hampshire first of all
states established free town libraries.
Since then they Increased slowly until
Mr. Carnegie decided to spend his mil
lions In erecting the buildings where cities
and towns would furnish the books and
Provide for the maintenance of the library,
'p to 1!6 Mr. Carnegie has established
1.270 libraries for the English-speaking
!eople; 779 of these are in the United
States. Th( aggregate cost of these build
ings Is 9.,40. Three-fourths of this
sum has Ix-en spnt In the United States,
the balance In England, Scotland and
Caneds. The total population he has
supplied amounts to 18 per cent of each
country. Think what a permanent bless
ing for all time this is to the English
speaking world, especially to the young,
and to those without means or oppor
tunity to ohnin knowledge except through
the use of libraries.
no Ise for Donotblnaa.
He Is a firm opponent of class distinction,
and holds In contempt the privileged classes
who live in luxury, contributing nothing
by forced industry or voluntary service to
the benefit of society. For America he la
an out and out protectionist, for the British
lug that tho conditions existing In the two
countries demand this great difference In
isles he is an out and out free trader, hold-
their commercial methods
Mr. Carnegie's one supreme ambition in
life is to weave together the Interests of
the I'nlted Statea and England. He is an
enthusiastic advocate of the federation of
all English speaking peoples. il looks
upon this union as tne one great hope for
the peaue and progress of the world
Wealth, lio says, should be held In trust
for the benefit of the whole community,
not so much to raise the submerged tenth
ss to help the swimming tentii to keep their
heads above water.
Mr. Carnegie s treatment of labor has
had many criticisms. His own belief for
I smooth working in the industrial arena la
co-pnrinermin. miu w 111 r mai in not iwc
ticablu he advocates the sliding scale,
which he put in operation in Ills own
works. Hia experience, ho aas, goes to
prove that the firm which has tne reputa- I
lion tor taking tne d.hi care oi its men
has the best chance, because the best men
all gradually gravitate to that firm and
stay with it.
At the conclusion of General Dodge's Wd
dress, which held the close attention of
hia audience from the opening to the last
sentence, followed the formal presentation
of the keys of the new building to Mayor
Macrae aa chJef executive of the city, and
the return by him to the Board of Library
Trusteea, the ceremony being accompanied
by short speeches by the mayor. Secretary
Balrd of the Library Board, who presented
the keys to the city, and by Trustee J. M.
Calvin, who accepted them back on behalf
of the board. President M. F. Rohrer of
the Library board prealded.

Bd. Hosier, engineer and fireman respect
ively of the Burlington fast mall train,
who met their death Monday evening In
the wreck at the Wnhash crossing caused
by the fast marl crashing Into a Wabash
freight train, were taken to their homes
In Creston yesterday. Coroner Treynor
empaneled a Jury which viewed the bodies
before their remove.! and then adjourned
the inquest until today.
Burlington officials admit that the blame
for the wreck lay with the engineer of the
fast mall train as he failed to observe the
rule to come to a dead atop at the crossing.
For what reason Engineer Woods neglected
to obey this rule will never be known.
The Burlington succeeded In getting Its
track cleared yesterday morning but the
Wabash track was still blocked until late
last night. The locomotive of the fast mall
was still In the ditch last night although
the tender was gotten onto a flat car. The
delay In clearing the Wabash track Is due
to the amount of grain which has to be
loaded Into new cars. It Is expected that
the Wahaah tracks will be cleared this

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
rE8 MOINES, Sept. 12. (Special.) The
fight of the farmers at Melvln has been
finally answered by the granting of a site
for an elevator by the Rock Island rail
road. The site was granted only after a
hearing on the part of the railroad com
pany at which the attorney for the road
and the commissioners were present.
Tho fight haa attracted considerable no
tice over the state on account of the fact

desiring to grant the site was that they
were receiving a commission for- the
amounts of grain bought at the station.

FIVE YEARS' OPTION IS OVERLOOKED
Coancll Meets Today to Act on Matter
and Probably Will Award
Bonds to Another
The sale of the Twenty-fourth street pav
ing bonds has been temporarily deferred
on account of the misunderstanding with
Well. Roth & company, of Cincinnati.
When the bids were opened It was plain
that this firm 1 had bid on twenty-year
bonds, nlit taking Into consideration the
five years option. Vice Presldnnt Adklne
of the council telegraphed the firm regard
ing the matter and received this replyl
"For optional bonds we offer par and ac
crued Interest, you to allow $400 for furnish
ing blank bonds."
W. J. Hayes ft Sons of Cleveland, are the
next high bidders. These bankers offered
$P0 and accrued Interest for the general
bonds 'and $303 premium and accrued In
terest for the $20,000 Intersection paving
bonds. Thay also offered to furnish the
blank bonds free of cost to the city.
Today tha council' will meet and take tip
the sale and without doubt will award the
bonds to Hayes ft Sons. From the tenor
of the Hayes bid the city officials Infer
that they are anxious to possess the se
curities. In case tha council decides to
accept the Hayes bid the firm will be noti
fied at once by wire and If everything la
satisfactory the city clerk will forward the
histories aa soon aa possible In order to
secure the funds for tha paving, so that
work can cornhjence this fall.
When the 'Nebraska Telephone company
started to lay conduits In the business por
tion of the city, F street was designated as
the northern limit and Q street the south
ern. A change was decided on a day or two
ago and now the conduits on Twenty-fourth
street will extend from A street to Q street.
Another addition ia the laying of eondulta
on Missouri avenue from Twentieth to
Twenty-fourth streets. Material for these
extensions Is being placed on the ground
and the force of men will be Increased.
Cm It street the conduits are being laid
from Twenty-fourth street west to the
Union Pacific tracks. Just as soon as the
conduits are laid the cables will be pulled
and run Into the present central station
at Twenty-fourth and N streets. The poles
on Twenty-fourth street and on all streets
where conduits are laid will then be re.
moved. No start has been mads on the
new building at Twenty-fourth and K
streets yet. It appears to be the intention
of the company's officers to lay the founda
tions this fall and let them settle during
the winter and start building operations
In the spring.
