With weather conditions, that could not
be excelled Council Bluffs enjoyed not
only a glorious, but a sane and safe
Fourth of July. If there were any acci
dents due to the celebration of Independ
ence day In this city they were with one
exception not reported to the authorities.
The one accident that required the atten
tion of the city physician was of a minor
character, the party hurt being struck by a
swing In Falrmount park.
It might be truly said that everybody
In Council Bluff observed the great na
tional holiday In some manner or another.
Hundreds of families took advantage of
the glorious weather to enjoy a picnic
either In Falrmount park, Lake Manawa
or in some sequestered woodland spot
near the city. Others crossed the river
and took in the attractions at the resorts
At times during the day so great waa
the exodus to the parka and other resorts
that the streets of the city were literally
deserted. At the close of the public ex

again were filled with pleasure seekers,

The day was a remarkably orderly one.
due In a great measure to the fact that all
of the galoons, In accordance with the pro
vision of the Iowa mulct law, were kept
closed the entire day. Violations of the
city ordinance prohibiting the discharge of
revolvers, shotguns, giant crackers and
other dangerous explosives were few and
far between, and tne police were not called
upon to make a single arrest In this con
nection. One lone cane, designed for dis
charging dynamite caps, could be seen

Address of the Day.
Mr. Williams, who took as the subject
for his oration "The True American," said
It gives me great pleasure to greet an
American people today, composed of Amer
ican men, American women and American
children. American In spirit, because you
are a part of the greatest nation of the
earth, and the nation of the greatest des
tiny. Emblematlc of America is the word
"Freedom "freedom of speech, of religlun,
of suffrage, and any one of these throiiled
the others are sympathetically weak. The
ionte.-l waged to accomplish this high
standard of humanity is a story of piithm,
sorrow and hardships from the Inop.loti.
The courage of iheir convictions i the spirit
( f the story of the titruggles of the refugees
and revolutionists "our lorefathers."
There are in America two great classes
of people which form the bulwark of the
nation. They are not distinct and separa;,
but have a community of Interest, us they
should have, and there is no line of de
marcation absolute und defined. It is, there
fore, but .necessary that when one class
suffers the other will; when one goes up
the other does and when one goes down
tiie other does. While It seems unnatural
that the Innocent should suffer and be
punished for the wrongs and shortcomings
of the guilty the American principle of
uependence and Individuality decrees It so.
A man should not be judged by his acci
dental position In the vocations of life or
his accidental employment by the class
to which he belungsC That man Is the
best public servant and sorves the public
best who seeks to do good for all and each
of us, thereby advancing the cause for
American principle. It is true we have
diversified Interests which may be affected
by legislation, but that is a natural phe
nomenon, for we are not created equal In
physical or mental power, and therefore
some will be rich and some will be poor.
No more distinction should be shown the
unscrupulous rich than the unscrupulous
poor. One U as good as the other and one
Is as bad as the other. I have no more
respect for the man who, because he Is rich,
oppresses and exploits the poor, tiian I
have for the poor man who Incites through
Jealousy and envy a hatred for the rich be
cause he Is rich. There Is no making
fish of one and fowl of another. They are
both carrion to the nation and Its funda
mental principles and both Incapable of
self-government. There Is no more reason
for the government to be In the hands of
an oligarchy than In the throes of a re
vengeful mob. Both are Imperilling to hu
manity and liberty-loving people. The long
head of the Illicit and unscrupulous hoarder
Is no shorter than the long arm of the
pilferer, for both are thieves.
I know that to teach this lesson and
the distinction without regard to wealth Is
a hard task, but It Is the task our fathers
fought for and finally performed, and It Is
the creed upon which rests the success or
failure of this nation.
A feature of the afternoon' program
was the music on the Scotch bagpipes by
Piper O. W. McDougal of Omaha and the
dancing of the Scotch reel by three little
girls In Highland costume, Mattle Brltton,
Gene Brltton and Ruth Blnkley.
Many of the pleasureseeker remained
at the park for the firework In the even
ing, while many who had spent the earlier
part of the day elsewhere went to the
park In the evening to watch the display.
Verd Reed, son of W. Brooks Reed,
former secretary of the Commercial club,
was the only person as far ss waa reported
yesterday to meet with an accident. He
was engaged In swinging some children InH
Falrmount park and failed to get out of
the reach of the swing. The edge of the
seat struck -him over the temple, inflicting
a painful but not serious wound. City
Physician Tubbs was sent for and after
he had administered first aid to the In
jured joung Reed felt sufficiently recov
ered to remain at the park and join with
the other member of the family In par
taking of a picnic supper.
