Mr. President and Members of the Na
tional Irrigation ConKress: It Is Impossible
to exaggerate the importance of the work
in which you are engaged. It la frsugjt
with fr-raclilng interest, not only to the
present, but to the future.. It Is a subject
to which I have Riven considerable atten
tion during my public service, for I have
been a firm believer In the feasibility of
aatlonal irrigation as now contemplated, in
the arid and acml-arld regions. It will
bring under cultivation large areas of the
public domain which would otherwise re
main sterile and practically uninhabitable.
The rapid increase of population and the
pre-emption and settlement of the arable
pott Ions of the public lands has rendered
It Important that we should reclaim the
waste places and make them productive
through a wise Irrigation aystem which lies
beyond the capacity of individual effort.
This policy is In the highest degree bene
ficent. It not only enlarges the Meld of
wholesome, individual opportunity, but it
Is In a very especial degree of national
significance. It increases the opportunity
for the - development of the agricultural
regions of the republic, for multiplying the
nu.nher of American farms and American
homes, thereby augmenting the great con
servative forces which are the surest re
liance and safeguard of our political insti
tutions. I tlrmiy believe that the . most
conservative elements will always be found
upon the farm. - You will generally find
among the millions throughout the groat
agricultural regions less tendency thnn
elsewhere to Inconsiderate and , hysterical
Irrigated Leads Fraltfnl.
Irrigated lauds are made to yield many
fold more than the best .unlrrigated lands,
and the certainty of good crops seems to
be assured, 'f here is a guaranty, against
the blighting effects of drouth, and the in

The desert Is fsat disappearing before the

be impossible, is new being accomplished.

DETROIT, Mich., Sept. 1-When Wil

party of about 10 In Detroit at noon to

by the reception committee, was driven to

P. Codd delivered a formal address of
Immediately after the reception the party
est down to luncheon, after which they
were driven In automobiles to the fair
grounds, where a very large crowd greeted
the Nebi saltan's approach with applause
and cheers. The party was driven to
the bsnd stsnd In the grove, where Bryan
was to speak. Nearly all In the Immedlnte
vicinity of the stsdn bore the majsks of

dress seemed directed. Mr. Brysn said
he was Impressed, during the last few
months of his trsvels abroad with an Idea.
In eonnectlon with labor.
As I passed through the Orient," he
sslj, "I found a great gap between those
who stand at the top and those at the
bottom of the social structure. I return
to my home more tlisn ever believing In
the dignity of lsbor and the Importance of
cultivating a sentiment among the people
which makes them respect more the men
who toll than tha one who Idles In so
ciety. I trust we shsll never have, in
this country, a leisure class, If by thst
we mean those with nothing to do. I can
not conceive any, place In a well regulated
society for men or women who have noth
ing to do."
Mr. Bryan said he preferred that nations
abroad should adtrHre and respect the
Amerlcsn Msg rather than fear It.
The Bryan party left the fslr grounds
for a drive around the rlty.

The meeting at the Light Guard Armory
began at 7:46 . p. m. Drums rolled and
most of the packed house rose to Its feet

Bryan waa unable to make his address
for a few moments owing to the prolonged
Mr. Bryan referred to President Roose
velt when he said the republicans ad
mitted he was the only man of the party
who If nominated would stsnd any chance
of election, and continued: .
Ask the republicans how they esplnln
he fact that the president slone Is eli
gible. It say It Is because he has repudi
ated the platform on which he was
elected snd adopted a democratic plat
form. I challenge you to find one ele
ment of the president's popularity based
on anything otherwise than a democratic
plunk in a aemocratic piatrorm.
As in prior speec.nes uryan poiniea . oui
that the president had a compromise rate
bill passed the original idea of the rata
bill having been found not In the republics n
platform. Where-there wao no mention of

formed . and distorted bill" he' did accept
without having threatened the railroad
magnates that - they would have to deal
with something more radical government
ownership of railroads unless they sub
mitted. Mr. Bryan, whose address was punctu
ated with cheers and applause, then con
demned the railroads as a corrupt influence
In politics and advocated his previously
offered theory of first trying as an experi
ment a system of dual government control,
the state owning the state lines sod' .the
federal government owning the Interstste
lines, giving a chance for the avoidance
of centralization and building up the power
of the state. Bryan's treatment of the
trust question was along the lines of his
New Tork and New Jersey speeches.

received on board the commanding officers
of the fleet. Then followed a gala luncheon
at which the officers, the government of
ficials, the attaches, senators and congress
men were guests, together with a number
of the personal friends of the president.
Ma ay Yachts Preseat.
Flanking the war vessels, which . glis
tened In purest white under the direct rays
of the sun, and against a low lying back
ground of storm-black clouds along the
horizon, waa the greatest fleet of private
ytachtA small boats and pleasure craft
probably that has even been drawn to
gether In such a small compass. Each of
these was decked with signal flags from
stem to stern and added materially In
the painting of a marine spectacle un.
paralleled In the history of the American
people.' This was the stirring scene which
greeted the . president as the Mayflower
steamed out from Oyster bay shortly after
11 o'clock. It waa Just twenty minutes past
that hour when the reviewing yacht came
within range of the flagship Maine, .which
stood at the canter column of the fleet.
Then came a flash of flame and a puff
Of gray smoke -from the starboard sa
luting cannon of the- flagship, which wss
tha signal for the other vessels to join
in a unanimous salute of twenty-ono guns,
It requlretf-ceratily.jnttitihia -for tbe'My
flower to run. down the first lane. It put
about and came up on the-outer edge of
the westerly column of the sldps. Reach
ing the head of tha column again the
Mayflower' turned once more to the west
and took a tour outside the torpedo boat
line, coming eaatward to the Maine's po
sition once more, and then cast anchor.
Review at an Had.
.After luncheon the president .visited sev
eral shlpa of the fleet. When he returned
sgaln to the Mayflower the review was
practically at an end. although Mr. Roose
velt and most of his guests remained on
board to witness the Illumination of the
fleet, which occurs at i o'clock tonight.
When President Roosevelt paid his visits
to the various vessels the wind was howl
Ing down the sound tin a wsy to set the
rigging of all the vessels In the wonderful
njsemlflage singing a warning song of
the dewp. The Mayflower's launch with Its
distinguished passenger plunged through
the waves, which were aa high as any of
the boatmen of Oyster bay and Cold Spring
harbor have known for many days. Tho
heavy sea that was running had sent all
small boats hurrying pell "mell for the
shelter of the cove, where they formed an
apparently unbroken barrier across the har
bor entrance, completely flocking any pos
sible retreat for the larger and etauncher
craft which were braving the wind and
waves to keep In touch with every move
and picture of the -review
Salt water from the breaking waves was
blown rtlngingly Into the president's
launch, but he was hilarious and enjoyed
the experience to the fullest.

WASHINGTON POSrS TRIBUTE
Maa of National Worth aad laSaeaee
Ras Been Lost to tho
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. D. C. Sept. I (Special
Telegram.) The leading editorial In the
Washington Post of , this morning Is a
splendid tribute to Edward Roeewater, his
life and character being thus set forth
under the head, t "Edward Rosewater, a
By the death of Edward Roeewster a
rr.an of national worth and Influence has
been lost. In The Omaha Bee he built up
a newspaper which reflected his personal
ity, his Ideal and his sense of patriotism
as completely ss though he wrote every
line of Its editorial utterences. He be
longed to that constantly narrowing circle
of personal Journalism, whose loss the
country will deplore when the last of their
class shall have disappeared and the new
order of things In the profealon they adorn
has made of the newspaper what the
jaundiced pessimism foresees an Institu
tion that merely reflects routine life and the
laagsrd aspirations of Its community.
Neither so broad It. isnge of his vision as
Oreelev, nor so brllltsnt In ideas or their
expression ss Watterson, Mr. Rosewater
nevertheless exercised swsy within his
sphere of sctlvlty every whit as pronounced
in Us result as those attributed directly to
the genius of the two conspicuous ex.
ample rs of the old style Journalism. The
secret of his Influence snd success was
that, true to that most admirable trait of
his race, he had ideals which he strove to
attain and which he persistently sought
to make his public accept as Its own. A
highly developed sense of public righteous
ness, backed by a courage that knew no
faltering, caused him to fait afoul of every
fraud snd shsm In men snd measures, and
naturally he was hated and loved In turn
by his public.
It Is men cf the Rosewater type, found
in every department of our lire, wno pre
serve the balance snd even development
of the nation s destiny. When they enter
journalism the circle Of their Influence Is
broadened, tbelr counsel and deeds are
given wider sweep, but In kind they do
not differ from the type thst Is represented
In every community by men who, because
of Ideals that govern their own conduct,
cannot, if they would, refrain from con
stant effort to bring their neighbors to ttm
angle of vision from whsre they view the
Miss Flora Wilson, daughter of the sec
retary of agriculture, who haa been abroad
for the last three years studying music In
Paris, expects to start shortly on a tour
of the world, which will last a year or
two. Miss Wilson haa many frier; -t la this
city. During the time she was hostess for
her father she was a great favorite in all !
circles of society -hera arid her absence Is
much regretted. Miss Wilson will first visit

not been treated by hint wrth due con
sideration, came to the Tribune a few days

to State's Attorney ; Healy, who at that
time waa In tbe oast, with the Information
and a request that a representative of tho
state's attorney s office be permitted to ac
company the Tribune representative on tho

It was ascertained that Steneiand had
fled from Chicago on July 12; gone directly
to New York and sailed In a steamer of
the White Star lino for Liverpool.' He re
mained In that city - for two days and
then took a stesmer for Olbrlli;': ii'ci
he rveched on July 27. From ther be
took a lxst tor Tangier. Ths Tiibi lie cor
respondent and Assistant Slate's Attorney
Olsen were hot ' on his trip to the east
coast of 'Africa. It was ssoertalhed that
he had deposited 112,000 In a bank of Tan
gier, and believing that be' would soon

him there. A alcpsfh printed ln the reg
ular edition of the Tribune this morning
declared that the arrest of Stenslsnd would '
be only a matter of hours and four hours

ing that tbe fugitive had been taken Into

A reward of au.OOO had been offered for
the arrest of Stensland, and since his de
parture from Chicago many detectives had
been on the hunt for htm. Dispatches

Hnry W. Hering, .formerly cashier .of
the Milwaukee Avenue State hank, learned
early in the day of the arrest of Stenslsnd
snd expressed Ma pleasure. He said that
he was surprised that Stenslsnd had been
taken alive, expressing his belief thst the
iran would have committed suicide before
permitting hlmself.to.be captured. He
declared that when the trial of Stensland
came off It would show that he . (Hering)
had been a dupe of Stensland and had
suffered through hts financial manlpule
tlona "I am highly pleased, to say the least."
said Hering. "It simply means thst my
name will be cleared at the hearing and
that It will be shown that I had no part
in tha looting of the bank, which was car
ried on by 'Stensland. . So far, I have been
compelled to carry all ths load of Ignominy
and suffering, and I hope now that Stens
lsnd will be woni pelted totshoulder lila
Hering la Dark.
Hering further. said that Stensland had
nevsr, said anything to ' Indicate that
he Intended to go abroad, but ,
that instead that he was going
to the northern part of this country
and would return In a short time. "I do
not know," said Hering, "who the woman
could havs been who le eaid to have given
Information which led to his arrest. Stens
land had many personal callers, but I 'never
knew whether they called on personal mat.
tera or on business."

notes to ths amount of tl.OOt.OOO, made up
of more than 200 items, ranging in amount -from
tl.ooo to $15,000 each, that were, for
! the most psrt. forgeries.
'The proceeds of these transactions had
been sunk In real eatate gperulatinna. Part
of the bank'a nioney Is popularly thought
to hsve gone to Cashier Hering. who waa
fond of race horses and had also ths auto

paymenta will be made In a short time.
It Is yet problematical how much will

Is ssserted by ths receiver that depositors
will In time receive the greater part of
their money. The news of the arrest of
