proposition: for the . endorsement of .the
Union City mission by both the pastors
and the Associated Charities had been be

The executive cprftmlttee of. the. Asso

while endorsement of the Union City mis

It would not bx proper for the Associated
Charities to take such action In relation
to en organisation which Is engaged largely
in religious work. At the same time, the
executive committee decided that the As

mission In any way. It would be ready at
any time t assist in the charitable work
of the mission.

building wss erected on Broadwsy between

Position of Ministers.
The Ministerial association which has
had the proposition before It at several of
Ita meetings, has as yet failed to Indorse
the Union City mission and the matter Is
stUl In the hands of a special committee.
At a recent meeting of the Ministerial asso
ciation the rommlttee submitted a report
which in substance waa that while the
mission bed in general done excellent work
some mistakes had been made and some
changes would be necessary before the re
ligious bodies of the city could. Indorse It
and take an active part In Its work. At
the time that this report was msde the
committee suggested that a board of trus
, tees be chosen from the vsrlous churches,
this board to have oversight of the man
agement of the mission. The association,
however, failed to take any action at that
time beyond , ref.-rlng the whole matter
back to the Committee for further Investi
gation. It Is' understood that Rev. Mr.
Glersdorf Is perfectly willing that a board
of trusters frem the different churches
have oversight of the management of the
mission, and has so notified the Ministerial
Sornt definite ' action by the Ministerial
association s looked for at its meeting.

BUTTER DEALERS ON, RACK
Iowa Food Department Has Trouble
RENOVATED AND PURE ARTICLE
Old Letter Paroortlaar to Coaso from
Governor Cnmmlns Makes the
Hawker Senatorial Fight
Interest lag. '
(From a Staff Correspondent.!
DBS MOINTS, March Sa-(Speclal.)-The
State Food and Dairy commissioners de
partment is having trouble with people
who go from house to house In the big
cities of the stale selling what they claim
is "good country butter," but which. In
fact, Is not country butter at all, but
Is simply renovated butter. These ped
dlera buy In the markets and secure in
one way or another cheap grades of but
ter, renovate it. disguise themselves In
the garb of a farmer and then ge out Into
the realdence section of a city and sell the
butter at a stiff price on the claim that
It la "country butter." .,
This class of law violators are hard to
catch and the department Is having soma
trouble with them. Not till the thrifty
housewife who has prided herself on se
curing a rich prise In the way of some
"good country butter," puts the product
on the table does she usually find out how
she has been "soaked."
A woman in thia city visited the dairy
commissioner yesterday with some buttor.
She waa indignant. She had noticed "after
the peddler left," that the butter aeemed
to have considerable water in it. She
worked it over and it proved to have 66
per cent water, in it. The law allows
only 16 per cent water. The United Btatea
law allows the same and all butter con
taining more than that ia classed as adul
terated butter. The government charges
manufacturers of adulterated butter a li
cense of 86U0 a year. The atate law fines
them 8100 for each offense. But women are
so anxious to get "good country butter"
that they nearly always buy If the peddler
looks enough like a farmer.
In a suit In justice court here the de
partment haa aucceeded in establishing
that a label on a bulk package la not suf
ficient to comply with the pure food law
and that the label must be on the package
sold to the customer. A butcher in Des
Molnea had on hla counter a large
Jar of lard properly labeled. It was shown
aa being 90 per cent pork lard and 10 per
cent beef fat. It waa shown that when
people called for lard they were served
from that Jar. The department contended
that the Jar could as well have been under
the counter or in the back room.

A document that promises to be of more
vital Interest than the , famous Torbett
Witter has been sprung in the campaign
and like the Torbett letter Is given to the
public through the standpat press, but
promises to be even longer uvea, ine ai
llson men are Jubilant over it. The Cum
rains men for a day or two were down In
the mouth, but now they profess to be
aomewhat Jubilant and smile as they say
that the end Is not yet.
The document has no date and no sig
nature, but the Capital of this city, which
was the first paper to publish it in full
claims that it waa written or dictated by
Governor Cummlna to Ora Williams, a
newspaper man and close friend of the
governor. The alleged statement occupied !
about a column and a half of newspaper
space and purports to be the position Gov
ernor Cummins and his friends propose to
take in regard to Taft as a presidential
candidate. .Without quoting at length. It
can be said that in ths statement it is
represented that President Roosevelt has
not treated the governor and his friends
right; that while being for reform he has
always treated and shown favors to ths re
publicans of Jowa who are the enemies ot
reform, and that Taft, if he propoaes to
have the support of the Cummlna people,
must not "repeat the blundera" of the
Rooaevelt administration by turning down
the Cummins people.
Paragraphs of laterest.
It should be understood that, according
to the claims, this statement waa made
early In the year 1908, before the atate con
vention, and purports to be telling the Taft
people wha they can expect from the Cum
mlna people. From the article aa It ap
peared in the Des Moines Capital these
paragrapha are taken: I
To be more specific, this Is the situation
in Iowa at present, Lafa Young, editor cf
the chief newspaper which ia regarded aa
In the service ot the corporations, has enjoyed-
personal cquatntance with Taft n.id
he has tried to make himself chief Taft
supporter in Iowa. He very much wants to
get back Into politics after being out for a
number of -years. He Is perhaps the most
offensive standpatter and corporation man
In the state, not merely because he his
been a bitter factionalist and has repeatedly
bolted the ticket, but because ot the com
mon belief whether well founded is another
matter that he Is a purchasable quantity
and essentially dishonest in his political
methods. He hss been vacillating. His
support of the progressive movement wss
literally purchased a few years ago. His
antagonism to the movement made him
rich. OiJy a few months ago he editorially
declared Taft to be "a radical of the La
Follette type,' und then bltterlv nsuild
La Follette: yet he wauls to go to the na
tional convention because he claims to be
the special friend 4f Taft.
This is cited only as an illustration.
Thar are many others of those who have
been talking Taft who aie or like caliber.
They have tt?d up with the Taft movemint
solely as a bandwagon proposltinn snd in
the - hope they can thus ride hack Into
power. The progressives believe that if
these men were permitted to handle the
Taft delegation they would betray Ts't
at the first opportunity.
It is largely because of thia strained re
lation, and this cross-purpose worked out
through factions, that it has been thus fr
lm possible for Iowa to get together 'or
f Whether the statement wss in fact made
by Governor . Cummins or not progressives
quite generally are admitting that It is a
correct statement of the feelings thst the
progressive have been entertaining towarda
Taft and hla candidacy, and In the same
breath they ask how Taft la going to ex
plain having given out what en Ita face if
a confidential communication. According
to the Capital and other atate standpat
newspapers, the statement went to Taft
ar.d a copy found Ita wsy to the president's
desk. In a later Issue the Capital says
copies of the statement were given out In
Iowa by Curtis Boyd, who was here for
soma time aa the representative of Taft.
The authorship of the statement seems
not to have been cleared up aa yet, but It
seems pretty sure that Governor Cummins
nsver said It and did not not dictate It. The
statement represented, and was an attempt
to show, that the standpatters were not
the people to trust with the Iowa allegation
to the national convention. Since then the
state convention has been held and the
standpatters were In the saddle and se
lected the bulk of the delegates, which
makes the statement of peculiar Interest.
As a matter of fact, the statement was
written before Boyd ever saw Cummlna,
and within a week after It waa written
was In the hands of Taft.
Troable of Democracy.
Bryan men are Jubilant over the Cedar
Rapids state convention and the lron-c'ad
resolutions instructing the delegates under
the unite rule to vote for Bryan for pres

apprehension with the great bulk of 'be
democrats of the state as to what ht re
sults of the convention will ultimately be.
Many profess, however, that they can only
For seversl campaigns the control of the
democratic party organization haa wavered
between the radicals and the conservatlvea.
Two years ago the conservatives, whom
the Bryan men are pleased to call "the
corporation crowd," got Into the aaddle and
captured the state central committee. At
the Cedar Raplda convention there waa
every Indication that the Bryan men are
In the saddle and that It only remains for
the aecond convention to be held at Sioux
City before the other fellows are turned
out. C. W. Miller, chairman of the atate
committee, (announced that he would not
seek re-election, and Miller is the leader
of the conservatives.
But at the Lame time there was an ele
ment In the party that turned down Gen.
eral James B. Weaver for delegate-at-large.
Weaver Is a Bryan man and an old
wheelhorse, but the accepted Interpretation
la that he was turned down because of his
strong stand for temperance and hla activ

Itching, disfiguring eruptions, rashes, boils, etc., aa well as pimples, black
beads and rough, scaly skin, show the presence of some irritating humor in
the blood. These aciJs and humors with which the blood is infected are-being
constantly thrown off through the pores and glands of the skin, and the
flesh is kept in an inflamed, diseased and unsightly condition. Nothing
applied externally can change the condition of the blood or prevent the outflow
of these burning acids ; only constitutional treatment can do this. Washes,
salves, lotions, etc., cannot reach the humor-laden blood,, and are therefore
useless, except for the temporary comfort and cleanliness they afford. The
acid poison in the blood must be removed before a cure can be effected. S. S. S.
is a real blood purifier, possessing all the requirements necessary to neutralize
and remove the humors from the circulation. It completely eradicates every
trace of impurity and restores this vital fluid to its natural healthy state.
S. S. S. cools the acid-heated blood so that instead of pouring out acrid matter
on the skin, it feeds and nourishes it with health-sustaining properties, and
then the eruptions and diseases of the skin pass away. Book on Skin Dis

total of their bid was 8932.26. Mr. Pike's
bid was 8875. or 8367.25 less. White
O'Brien held the contract the previous
year, being at that time the firm of Tan
ner White. J. M. Tanner haa the city
printing, being the editor of the South
Omaha Dally Democrat, and one of the
Inmost circle of democracy.
After a week's deliberatipn the council
rejected all bide on the ground that they
were too high. The bids were readver
tiaed. Mr. Pike could make no further
reduction, being on bedrock. Nevertheless,
White & O'Brien Immediately lowered their
bid, and being given access to Mr. Pike's
bid, knowing what it was and that he
could not further reduce It and make a
legitimate profit, they bid a small frac
tion under on all Items and secured the
contract by less than $60 difference In the
second advertising. The mayor and council
undoubtedly knew exsetly what would be
done before rejecting the bid, for they did
exactly the same thing ' for Tanner &
White the year before. - They wanted
White O'Brien to have the contract.
The Magic City Printing company la one
of the oldest and most reliable firms of
Mr. Pike asked While O'Brien point
blank "where they expected to make their
profit." "Oh, we'll make our profit all
right." It can be done in the same man
ner aa the defunct furniture deal, by hav
ing the council committee on supplies or
der better grades of piper and better styles
of binding than the contract calls for and
adding on the desired profit. The contract
la a small atfalr, but It is only one of
the many of exactly this stripe which
has made the present administration no
