which add nothing to the revenue crodudng

then the cross Income should not exceed

Mr. Easily Wsrimertk , Breseo In-
dleted by Grand Jnry.
Ampng tha Indictment returned Wednes
day by the district court grand jury was
one against Mrs. Emily Wordsworth
Bresse of this city, on the charge of prac
ticing medicine during the year 19ii6 and
1906 without lawful authority. She waa
taken Into custody yesterday and promptly
furnished a 32SO cash bond, the amount
named by the court. Tha Indictment
charges that Mrs. Bresee did wilfully and
unlawfully profess to be a physician and
did assume the duties of such, prescribing
and furnishing medicine for tha sick. Fur
ther, that she professed to cur and heal
diseases without a certificate or license
from the proper authorities.
Patients -who had been treated by Mrs
Bresee testified before the grand Jury that
he told them she had a wonderful medi
cine which .she Imported direct from Ger
many with which she could cure almost
any ailment or disease.' Her patients, -the
testimony showed, would be seated around
a table in her parlor and be served with
"little tablet" upon small dishes.
From the testimony before the grand
jury It appears that Mrs. Bresea la a
disciple of what Is known as "biochem
istry" and that to her patrons or patients
she represented herself a "biochemist."
She I said to have told them that th
human body wa made up of a certain
number of 'element aand that all these
element except two had been discovered,
that her medicine contained alt of the ele
ment of the human body except these two
and oould cure- almost any disease. Fur
ther, that when the two missing elements
were discovered any and every disease
could then be cured.
One of Mr. Bresee' patient, a well
known Insurance agent of this city, testi
fied before the grand jury that she had
told him that she could get a diploma or
certificate to practice medicine, but did not
want on! '
Mr. Bresee .and her husband, Albert E.
Bresee, occupy apartments over 32! West
Broadway. In the city directory Mr.
Bresea Is described a a dealer In, manu
facturer and repairer of furs, while
Mr. Bresee I described ft a "biochemist."
Until a few days ago a sign, "Mrs. B. W.
Bresee, Biochemist," hung at the foot of
the stairway, but ha since been replaced
with a "furrier" shingle,
. Mr. and Mrs. Bresee have been residents
of Council Bluffs for about twenty year.
Coming here from Missouri Valley. Up
to two year ago. Mrs. Bresee conducted
a cloak-making and millinery business In
the rooms . over 421 West Broadway. A
number of years ago Mrs. Bresee created
somewhat of a sensation by claiming to
be a descendent of a member of the royal
family of England and that documents and
many valuable, royal jewels, which would
have established her claim, had been stolen
from her.: . " 1". :

Regarding Income from private sources
Mr. Klersted says:
Neither a municipality nor a private cor
poration can afford to sell water to private
consumers without having some minimum
price per inlt of volume of -water as -a
measuie of the expense of producing water
service. In order1 that the consumers who
use water liberally enough to equal or
exceed the cost of production and main
tenance shall not be called uoon to make

DBS MOINES, Jan. ' -(Specials-Governor
Cummins this afternoon delivered
hi second Inaugural address, saying In
The condition under which we II v are
utterly unlike the condition that gave
form to our Institutions and which pre
scribed the scope of ancient laws. With
a wealth that In a few years has whirled
us out of obscurity to the very pinnacle
of financial greatness: with this wealth
multiplying Itself with amazing rapidity,
estalillHhlng monopolies, crushing and
? rinding Its way, without any Instinct of
alrnees or any emotion Of sympathy,
toward the complete extinction of compe
tition and Independence; with forests in
its grasp; with ore beds occupied; with Its
reach and strength drawing together the
manufactories of the country; with the
paoklng houses and live stock markets
joining Into one vast combination; with
22O.000 miles ol main track rairway grad
ually taken from the ownership of a thou
sand companies and converted Into a half
dosen systems, all dominated by a few
men, and oftentimes by the game men,
servlns with mlixht and main tnese mas
ter of finance, bent on paying Interest
and dividends upon stocks and bonds that
aggregate nearly three times the original
capital Invested, as well a laying aside
Immense sums for extensions and additions
that ouaht to be constructed from inde
pendent capital: with labor unions that
are trying to mass tne power -ot me wora
Ingmen against the associated strennth of
employers-ytheso things present" a situation
never before presented to organised so
ciety. The farmers snd the retail mer
chants are about the only people remain
ing to exhibit the force . of competition,
and the latter are shivering lest the mall
order house shall Boon make way with
Rlotons Extravagance.
When' we add the riotous extravagance
and the shameful Inefficiency of municipal
administration, both arising largely from
the prodigality of prosperity, we have the
picture upon which the American people
are now looking. No ..wonder we are be
wlldered, and that we are a little nervous,
as well as very proud. No wonder that
magazines and newspi-pers are filled with
discussions, suggestions, criticism und de
nunciation. No wonder that the patriot
and the demagogue, the wHe man and the
fool, the philosopher and the' agitator, the
radical and the conservative, are abroad
in the land. Understand me all of them
are natural and many of them are un
avoidable. I am not even prepared to say
that, essentially, they ca.n be changed.
I am, however, sure that they require of
government something that has never
been done before, and that If we cling
too closely to the wisdom of tha fore
fathers and fall to exercise a little wis
dom of our own, the history of our fore-,
fathers will be the only part of the his
tory of this country worth preserving.
Herein He the application of my former
statement. No man knows Just to
do, although all men know that something
ought to be done.
The speaker then referred to the recent
address of Secretary Root .and an article
on the same subject by Mrk Twain, and
ln this connection said:
as w do against the unfair sggresslon
upon the prlvllrges of the people; but we
ought not to be frightened by the scare
crow set up by those whd have already
posnesxed a field to which they have, no
nonest title. - -
When you give the Investors of th
United 81 ate a fair chance to put their
money Into railroads, knowing that the
amount actually put In will measure the
amount upon which Interest and dividends
are paid, and knowing that the man mho
has made no Investment can have no
profit, you will find that, there will be
difficulty In obtaining all the funds that
are required to either construct new rail
roads or Increase the trackaae of oM on.
It takes some courage, I know, to resist
the Insidious and Insistent sppesl. but It
Is cheering to observe that It Is becoming
less persuasive every day.
I have referred to but two of all the
subject which are challenging the ripest,
best thought of the people. I have referred
to them for Illustrations,' for the spirit
which animates us In examining them
should move us along every path of re
form. We should emancipate ourselves
from Idolatry with reopert to things that
are. We should emancipate ourselves from
the desire to change simply to effect a
change. Because there Is much good In
the existing order, we should not be turned
a way from th effort to make it better;
but we should not overthrow what has
been done simply to prove that w can
overthrow It.
First BUI In trssle,
Following " ths Inaugural of Governor
Cummins today both branches of the legis
lature met In their respective chamber
and the first bill of the session waa In
troduced In the senate by Jamison of

When th Tenth congressional district
legislator called upon Senator Dolliver
thla afternoon and presented their petition
there wa no demand upon the senator to
deliver hfs support at once" for Chase.
Representative Iee acted as spokesman
and did ask that the petition be given
consideration. Senator Dolliver assured
them that their petition and all others
would be given consideration and assured
them that the question of the appoint
ment wax an open one. He asserted, and
all the legislator from the Tenth district
In the delegation, assented, that It would
be Improper for him at thie time to com
mit himself upon . the appointment. Mr.
Lee assured the senator that they did not
ask him to do this, but were only con
cerned to know whether or not the appoint
ment was already .settled and If not set
tled thon that their petition be given con
sideration. Senator Dolliver assured them
tha appointment was not settled and that
their petition would be considered and
taken up with the other member of the
Iowa delegation. The conference wa held
In a very friendly mood and the Chase
men are quite well satisfied with Its re
sult. Tomorrow th other delegation will
present their petitions.

clause of the constitution is not broad
enough for these days, simply, becaune. we
have an Interstate commeroe the charac
ter of which was nut dreamed of when
the clause was written.. The corporation
carrying on Interstate ' commerce cannot
be adequately regulated by the states for
th obvious reason that the Jurisdiction of
the state, even In the absence of the pres
ent prohibition in th constitution, ceases
at its border. We take nothing away
from the state when we' enlarge tfe-se
