quorum of seventy was the speaker.
President Frederick M. Smith was the
chairman at the business session this aft-

pointed to draw up resolutions of respect
and appreciation for the long; and faithful
services of Henry A. Stebblns, the retiring
church recorder, was received and adopted
by unanimous vote.

pressed closely for his construction and
Interpretation of the effect of the action.
President Haa Revelation.
President Joseph Smith then arose and
amidst the profoundest attention made the
following statements, which had great and
serious Impression upon his hearers:
One morning after waking, before I left
for conference, I passed a period of three
hours, and I never expect to be happier
or more contented In the spirit than I
was during that three hours. Certain mat
ters were presented to me, and among
them was this: We appear before the
world as advocates for what are called
signs of thi gospel the gospel signs the
accompaniments of the gospel economy as
Instituted by the Christ. A great deal of
comment has passed among our elders and
among our members and very largely in
our large branches as to why it Is there
are no more persons healed by adminlMtra
tion of the oil and the laying on of hands
than there are. My observation leads me
to the conclusion that there are a great
many more healings occur than are taken
notice of or than we are given credit for.
While there are a great many that are lost,
an a matter of course, but that which was
presented to me was this, that we ought,
is a people, to take this kind of a step:
To establish here (and I hope these In
dependence people won't go wild over it
because I say It), but it was presented to
the. what might be called a sanitarium or
hospital call it whatever words you like
that shall be under the supervision of some
earnest, upright and spiritual-minded offl
eer of the church, and that this sanitarium
hall be a place where our sick, who may
not be properly treated at their homes, may
be treated by the laying on or hands, by
the nnrslng as provided for In the law and
by such careful treatment as medical
knewledge within the province of our own
membership may be had, and thus see
whether or not we may not try the spiritual
forces for which we have been so long con
tending and at least put our hands and
our sacred honors In Juxtaposition and say
to the world, "We are willing that It shall
be given a trial an open trial," and I was
assured In that three hours of a spiritual
exaltation that there would he a fulfillment
of that prophecy; that the faces of Jacob's
children should not wax pale.
I hop that you will take this matter
under advisement, and I do not object to
Cur praying over It. I fully believe that
nanny of you there will come the degree

the month was almost continuously warm.
Practically all of the precipitation of these
months was snow. The amount of snow
fall In each storm was small and the high
temperature following melted It rapidly,
so the ground waa free from snow most of
the period and at no time was there more
than a light covering, two or three Inches
March was a cold month with an excess
In precipitation, moat of which occurred In
the form of snow. The ground was covered
with snow almost continuously until the
last week. Melting snow and rain made the
soil very wet at the end of the month.

been considered. Mr. Greene then quit

governor of the state of Nebraska, do
nereDy issue tnis my proclamation appoint
ing Monday, April 3, 1SM, to be observed
as Arbor day.
Nebraska owes a debt of gratitude to
tne - tree planters or pioneer days which
it can never repay. These Dilarlins of a
generation ago not only demonstrated that
trees could be successfully grown upon our
then bleak prairies, but they realized the
Importance of such growth upon climatic
conditions and they Inspired the settlers
with a seal for forestry which has dotted
the state with groves, making our climate
more equitable In point of humidity and
substantially adding to the beauty of na
ture ana tne enjoyment or man. Stat
istlclans tell us that the natural forests
are being rapidly depleted and that It 1b
a question or a comparatively short time
when the demand (or lumber will have to
be suppiK. from artificial groves. let us
anticipate tiiat time and get ready in the
f resent for the necessities of the future,
regard the planting of trees as a pa
triotic amy ana 1 run upon ail citizens,
in every walk of life, to devote at least
a portion of the day to practical forestry.
Let the minds of the school children be
especially directed In this channel and let
their instructors, by precept and examnle
teach them not only how to ulant trees.
but teach them also the important place
which the forest occupies in the economy
of nature, and let us all, both old and
young, plant at least one tree lor our own
pleasure and lor the benefit of posterity

Commercial Club Commissioner Will Visit
Washington to Force Railroads.
SEEKS DATE TO COMPEL BETTER RATES
Omaha Determined to Get from M 11
wnnkee and Northwestern
Snme Schedules ns Monx
No overtures have come to the Commer
cial club from cither the Milwaukee or the
Northwestern in the matter of rates from
Omaha to South Dakota and the executive
committee of the club Is becoming exceed
ingly Impatient. Just to show that It Is
In earnest and means to do everything pos
sible to secure a reduction for Omaha of
the South Dakota rate to the Sioux City
basis, the executive committee, at Its last
meeting Tuesday, authorized Commissioner
E. J. McVann to go to Washington and
look Into the records of the Interstate Com
merce commission for Information which
he may need to bring the railroads Into
line. He will leave for Washington the
latter part of the week.
It has been several weeks since the club
made Its strongest and ostensibly the las'
plea to the railroads concerned, and as yet
no definite results have come. Mr. Mc
Vann has been to Chicago several times to
see the railroad officials and no definite
promises have been made. The committee
has decided It Is time to use other means
to influence the roads.
The Jobbers say there Is a discrimina
tion against Omaha in favor of Sioux City.
Two years ago the rates from Sioux City
to South Dakota were lowered, but those
