To," Sara Mr. Clarke,
Henry T. Clarke has gone to Denver to
try and secure endorsement by the na
tional democratic convention of his reso
lution pledging support to the movement
for improving the rivtrs and making navi
When Mr. Clarke presents the; resolution
at Denver It. will not he the first time
ho has put up a fight for this resolution.
It Is the same which he presented at the
Missouri River Navigation congress at
Sioux City, where It was passed; at tho
Nebraska democratic convention held in
Omaha, where is was passed; at the White
House during the conference on the con
servation of national resources, where It
was referred to a committer. Mr. Clarke
Intended to present the resolution before
the Nebraska republican convention held In
Omaha, but had no opportunity to get the
floor, as the delegates were compelled to
leave In order to catch evening trains,' and
some of -them did not even stop to hear
the Nebraska platform read.
The republican national platform Incor
porates sufficient in support' of waterways
to satisfy Mr. Clarke, and he did not aak
to introduce a special resolution at the re
cent Chicago convention, but he was there
and had the platform builders overlooked
the waterways plank, Henry T. Clarke of
Omaha would have started something and
asked some Nebraska delegates to get on
record on the question of waterways.
"I am going to take this resolution to
James Charles Dahlman, mayor of Omaha,
as soon as I arrive in Denver,'' said Mr.
Clarke. "Dahlman can get It before the
platform committee If he wants to do so,
and I expect to meet with success In get
ting the resolution Incorporated In the
national democratic platform."
Mr. Clarke said If the conference held at
the White House had not been in the habit
of referring almost all matters which came
before It, there was no doubt but what
every governor present would have voted
for his resolution.
Mr. Clarke on the Ground.
DENVER, Colo., July a. Henry T. Clarke
of Omaha, vice president of the Inland
Waterways commission, arrived in Denver
thla morning with a prepared plank for ths
democratic platform on the sjbj.ct of the
Improvement of Inland waterways, which
he will submit to the committee on resolu
tions. Colonel Clarke was equipped with
bundles of literature on the) subject, which
he distributed lavishly. Congressman Jo
seph E. Ransdell of Louisiana, president of
the commisfion, will arrive tomorrow and
will Join Colonel Clarke in the work. The
plank which they will urge the convention
to adopt declares In favor of a government
Issue of 2 per cent bonds amounting t
COO.tOO.OOO to carry forward the work of Im
provement of rivers, harbors and water
ways of the country, which has already
been approved by the house of representa
tives committee on rivers and harbors and
by the engineers of the army.
The proposed plank also declares that
"pn account of the present Inactivity In
railroad construction, many laborers ordi
narily engaged In such work are out of
work, and as a consequence of the enact
rnent Into law of the plank labor and the
government alike would profit."
The Issuance of bonds by .the government
la held to be a necessity under the present
banking system and desirable In order to
afford an elastic currency. '

Is composed of Oeorge Rogers, Thomas J.
Flynn, Louis J. Plattl. Joseph P. Butler
and Charles E. Fanning.
It transpires that Mr. Dahlman was prac
tically slated for the chairmanship list
winter and It was for this reason that ha
refused to bo re-elected national commit
teeman from thla state, withdrawing In
favor of Dr. P. L. Hall of Lincoln. At the
time of the election of tha Lincoln man In
the state convention last March there was
considerable dissatisfaction among the un
terrifled. as they wished the Omaha mayor
to continue at the head of the eamnaln
department of the party in tha state. They
were told that "Jim" would be mad na
tional chairman and the delegates then
withdrew their protests and allowed Dr.
Hall's election to take place.
At this time Mr. Dahlman was spoken of
some as a gubernatorial possibility, but
since then his little boomlet has thrived
and prospered and to such an extent that
his local followers believe he can secure
the nomination If he goes after It. He could
not carry on a successful gubernatorial
campaign If he took the chairmanship of
the national committee they argue, as all
his time would be taken up In national af
fairs. For this reason the Jim campaign
committee wants him to refuse tho chair

WET WOOL SAVED IN OMAHA
Largo laments Received from West

By sending their wet wool to Omaha to
be cared for ty the Omaha Wool snd Stor
age company many Wnmlng and Mon
tana growers hsve saved heavy loss- a.
which seemed Inevitable as a result of the
recent rains which have been general
throughout the wool growing territory.
A shipment of 13B.fcV pounds of wet wool
was received Filday from a grower along
the Killings line ni the Burlington and It
was opened and spread out In the big ware
house of the wool company, where it will
be dried and then gathered up and sacked
The Burlington railroad has been enab'ed
to do much gond wctk for the growers
as well as tho promoters of the Omah
market, since considerable of the wool
was soaked with water, and agents have
been advising the growers to ship the wool
to Omaha, where there were abundant
facilities for drying out the clips.
It Is almost Impossible for the growers
to place the brea of wool under shelter of
any kind on t.e plains and ranges of
Wyoming. Some of the wool Is thlfped
from "btatlons" which have nothln but a
small depot, and frequently large quanti
ties of the wool must be left out of doors
until the whole clip is collected and ready
While the soaked wool weighs extremely
heavy and has pushed the freight charges
up above the usual amount on a carload of
wool, the Omaha company will be enabled
to save growers thousands of dollars by
drying out the wool.

DEMAND FOR GRAIN SHEAVES
Blsx Call for Them at National Corn
Show and Farmers May
Farmers of the west are being sent
notices through the country newspapers
that there will bo a big demand for sheaves
of grain and that they should not feed
all the bundles through the threshing
machines. The National Corn Exposition
alone will use thousands of bundles for
decoration, as well aa those for exhibition
purposes. County and state fairs will also
use a large amount of grain "In the
To qualify for the National Corn Ex
position It Is not necessary to enter
bundles as large as those tied by the self
binders. The bundles which the rules re
quire will be three Inches in diameter with
the full straws, which will permit the
Judges to see the character of the straw as
well as the heads and grain.
Managers of the corn show are authority
for the statement that not In the history
of the west has there been a prospect of
so much grain being exhibited as there is
this year. Almost every county will hav
a show of some kind in which grains of
all kinds and classes will be entered.
To act as judges at these expositions,
tho agricultural colleges have arranged to
"circuit out" expert Judges who will travel
from one county to the other and from

grain at each show to Omaha for the
