WILSON STAYS ON GUARD
Secretary of Agriculture Will
Take Vacation nnd Issues
WASHINGTON, July 2. Secretary Wilson
of the Department of Agriculture haa de
cided ti poxtnone Ins annual vacation iinL-.l
ha. haa completed" the organization, neces
sary to put into operation the new meat
inspection law. Ho will give his entire
time to thlB work for the nxt two months.
The new pure food law also will require
attention, but he intends to leave this al
most wholly to Dr. H. W. Wiley, chief of
the bureau of chemistry.
By direction of the president, Secretary
Wilson today Issued the following state
ment: American live stock are the healthiest
In the world. The great ran if en of t In-
west produce herda ot cattle in which the
percentage of disease is remarkable small
and the federal government la steadily re
ducing by approved selentllic methods this
small percentage. The inspection of tiie
animal before and at the time of slaughter
has always been thorough. It is true that
the Department of Agriculture has hem.
tofore lacked the power and the monev to
provide for an efflc.ent supervision nnd
.sanitation and the methods of preparation
of canned meat food products.
The legislation which has just become
effective provides the Department of Agri
culture with adequate law nnd power to
carry it Into effect. Supervision Inspec
tion will be extended from the pasture,
to the package. The federal stamp upon
the can will be a guarantee not only of the
healthfulness of the animal, but also that
the product wa prepared In vanltary sur
roundings, and with the addition of no
deleterious chemical or preservative, any
meat food product bearing the government
stamp will be nt for food.
With this law In operation it may be'
accepted as a fact that lor heathf ulnesa
and purity the prepared canned product
will compare favoarbly with the fresh meat
of the l ulled States, which is and always
has been the finest In the world.
The new law Is comprehensive, the means
for Its enfovcnient are ample and Its exe
cution ne thorough. People at home
and abroad may use our meats In confi
dence. To carry Into effect the meat Inspection
bill recently enacted by congress the Civil
Service commission today announced an ex
amination of Inspectors to be held on the
21st. The regulations under which the ex
amlnatlona are to be held do not require
that the Inspectors be veterlnariana. but
they must from experience be qualified to
determine whether or not meat Is sound.

of Legendre to take a snap shot of the
president as he entered hla earrlge at
the station here. Legendre claims Sloan
hit him In the face after the photograph
was taken and the president had driven

From the prison she went to the offlci
of her husband's attorney. Alien W".

AMERICAN . ZIONISTS
Appeal from Dr. Ma Jordan Aronse
Mneh F.nthnslnsm In the
TANNERSV1LLE, N. Y , July 2.-A letter
from Dr. Max Nordau of Paris, containing
a strong appeal for the support of the al
ready established Jewish Institutions in
Palestine, aroused murh enthusiasm at to
day's session of the federation of American
Zionist here. Much Interest also was
shown In a communication from Trof. Otto
Warburg, head of th Palestine commission,
which pointed out the political, induatrial
and agrlcutural posslbllltie of Palestine.
Particular stress was laid upon the favor
able attitude, now evinced toward Jewish
colonization in Palestine by the Turkish
government. The commission recommended
the organization of commercial, industrial
and agricultural syndiactea for the exploit
ing of the resources of Palestine.
Dr. H. Perelra Mendes, president of the
American branch ot the Jewish territory
association, startled the convention by de
claring that the report of ihe commission,
which come at a critical moment for
Zionists, proved that there is no need for
any other organization to undertake relief
work for Jews or for other activities else
where. Palestine must come first, he said,
and only when activities are Impossible In
Palestine need activities or relief work
be undertaken elsewhere. This statement
was regarded by the convention as notice
of the early dissolution of the territorial
movement of Zionism, and aims to secure
a grant of land for a Jemish autonomous
stale anywhere in the world, where the
light to establish such a stale may be ob
tained. TORONTO. Ont.. July J At the opening
of the seventh annual convcullon of the
Federation of Zionist societies In Canada
here President Dc Sola of Montreal an
nounced that the sultnn nf Turkey had re
voked the laws fni'tidd.ng Jews to settle
In Palestine. II did mt nlsh It under
stood that they had received a chart T, but
It was now possible for Jews to Inhabit
the country and enjoy th protection cf it

tion would give a great impetus to Immi

tion to about 10) of the postofflre employes
of Omaha, twenty of the employe of the
Council Bluffs and twenty-five of the South
Omaha postofflce employes were present.
The meeting was called to order by George
KlelTner, president of the Omaha Letter
Carriers' association, who introduced Cap
tain II. E. Palmer a chairman of the even
ing. The meeting had no political algnlflcance
whatever, being simply a grod will greet
ing of welcome to Mr. Rosewater. Captain
Palmer, in intretduclng Mr. Rosewater,
said he waa glad to welcome him home,
not only on hla own behalf, but on behalf
of the postofflce force of the three cltlee.
as they recognized In Mr. Rosewater tne
representative of the great Postofflce de
partment, not alone of the I'nited Statrj.
but of all the great nations represented Th
the Postal congress.
Mr. Rosewater was greeted with applause
as he stepped forward to address the gath
ering. He said. In effect:
"It gives me great pleasure to meet so
many of you here tonight as members of
the postofflce force of this country. It has
been my good fortune to meet the repre
sentatives of many other countries since
I last saw many of you. While abroad
I have visited the postofflce In part of
France. Germany and Italy and have ob
served their manner of doing business. In
some respects their postal system Is bet
ter than ours, but In respect to the In
terior workings of the foreign poslofncea,
I think that ours Is much superior. In
Rome, particularly, they still do things
the old way; In fact, nothing short of 2,000
years old will count In Rome anyhow."
Work of Postal Congress.
Mr. Rosewater then gave an Interesting
talk upon the Postal congress and Its per
sonnel, which consisted of the highest post
office dignitaries of the sixty-four coun
tries represented in the congress. The
German delegation waa honored by the
presence of a cabinet minister from that
country, while one of the delegate from
France was the president of the Postal
Savings bank of France. The ession con
tinued for fifty-one day. The prolonged
session resulted from the great multi
plicity of questions under consideration
and the conservatism of the European
delegates, a well a the South American
delegates, who would have preferred to
let matter remain In atatue quo, rather
than to undertake any Improved method,
which they susplcloned might reduce their
f 'aJ .revenue. After prolonged dlacus
hujsh tiie.ferirrn coupon system -foe foreign
tstage-waa nnaHTTidoftted'Tsi-r(he- trwl
ait rate wa cut down about 50 per cent.
The new rule will go Into effect October 1,
1907. After much discussion the twenty-
gramme standard waa adopted, though op
posed by the countries not using the
metric system of weights and measures.
The twenty-gramme standard 1 regarded
as the nearest equivalent to the American
and British ounce, but really twenty-eight
gramme is nearer equivalent of the ounce.
The international rate of potage was es
tablished at B cent per twenty gramme.
Another Important concession granted by
the congress at the earnest persistency of
Switzerland was to permit the transit of
flowers through the malls, with special
reference to the Eldelwelss flower, of
which great quantltle are sent out of
Switzerland to all part of the world.
Mr. Roewater told many other thing
of Interest of the work of the congress,
and of his visits to the postofflces of the
several countries. He concluded his in
formal talk with the expression of his sin
cere appreciation of the compliment paid
him by this reception, which he was glad
to say had no political significance.
Mr. Rosewater brought with him a large
collection of pictures and postal cards of
the various foreign countrle which he vis-
i Ited. which he left for the Inspection of
j'the meeting upon the conclusion of his ad
Engrossed Resolutions Presented.
President Kleffner then presented Mr.
Rosewater with an engrossed ropy of the
resolutions passed at the meeting of the
Slate ssoclation of I-etter Carrier held at
South Omaha May 30, which embodied the
thank of the asoclatlon for the services
Mr. Rosewater had at all time rendered
tbe postal employe of the country, and
particularly the letter carriers.
A vote of thanks wa unanimously ten
dered Mr. Rosewater for his address.
Short addresses followed, by D. R. Wit
ter of Council Bluffs. M. J. Grady of South
Omaha, Charles Kaltler of Omaha, George
Kleffner and other. Mr. Kleffner strongly
advocated that the clerk perfect an or
ganization such as the letter carrier have,
for both social and bualnea purposes.
Cigar were passed during the evening, and
the meeting closed about 10 o'clock.

VIEWS OF THE DEMOCRATIC MINORITY
Mr. Iltlnastonr Point to firnwth ot
Appropriations nnd Charae the
Republicans svitli Ex
travagance. WASHINGTON, July 2. Representative
Tawney, chairman of Ihe house committee
on appropriations, has prepared detailed
statement concerning the appropriations for
the fiscal year, beginning July 1, IfH. made
by congress during the session Just closed.
In which he claims that the per capita cost
of government in the I'nited States, In
cluding federal and state, is less than that
in any European country.
Mr. Tawney enters upon an analysis to
show thai various channels Into which the
total appropriation of $SS0,tS3.S0l will bo
diverted, lie begins by deducting $139,4:R.13
provided for the sinking fund for the
Panama canal account, showing lhat the
real appropriation for the conduct of the
government for the fiscal year Is 70.72i,S'i.
To meet this demand he cellmates that the
total revenues (customs, internal and
postal) will be TSl,BT3,;i61.
The appropriation, as made in the vari
ous -supply bills, are a follows:
Agriculture $ sW2W

Of the various increases, that of J3,O60.;6O

were the following: $10,260,000 carried In the
statehood act, $1,000,kjO for arming and
equipping the militia, (2,(00,000 on account
of the earthquake and fire at Ban Ftan
claco, t&OO.OOO on account of the new quaran
tine law, $10,231,600 on account of public
Mr. Tawney comment a follow on the
volume of the appropriation:
"While the expenditure ot our govern
ment are constantly Increasing and whllo
the appropriations made therefore by con
gress are In the aggregate very large, yet
when we take Into consideration the mar
velous growth of the country, the extent lo
which the people demand that th federal
govern momt ahall perform service that
should be paid by the states, none but the
unthlklng or misguided who do not stop to
consider the care with which the estimates
for appropriations for the public service
are crutlnlzed by the several committee
having Jurisdiction of appropriation bills,
can find any reason to criticize appropria
tion made during thl cession of congress.
View of the Minority, -
In a statement mad for the democratic
minority. Representative Livingstone makes
a comparison of the expenditures provided
for by thl congres. $81,1x3.301, with the
expenditure of 1X98, the first year of Presi
dent McKlnley administration, when the
figures were tr2.TC6.078. a difference of $361,
448,222. Commenting on thl showing, he
sa ys :
Thl growth In appropriations sustain
the contention that the republican party
stands for extravagance In public expend!,
tures In order to use that extravagance a
a cloak for their more objectionable pur
pose of maintaining a high protective tariff
to favor the trust combination of manu
facturer of this country.
A reduction of expenditure, they well
know, would compel a commensurate re
duction In taxation, and to that extent a
lowering of tbe (Tilnese wall of protection
that now surrounds the great body of eon.
sumers, who constitute the larger portion
of our population and compel tribute from
them to the favored classes.
Much of the extravagance grow out of
the practice prevailing with the present
administration of appointing commissions
to do what congress ought lo do and what
congressmen are elected for and paid for.
thus delegating the powers constitutionally
belonging to congres lo others, who have
no particular relations with or responsi
bilities to the public, and do not rentier an
accounting to the taxpayer of this country.
To sfford an Idea nf the magnitude of
this year's appropriations, Mr. Uvlngstort
"Our corn crop of IK'S, valued at $X2.192.
3SS, could have been paid for with the total
appropriations made at this session and
a few million to spare."
