DRESSERS GRANTED DIVORCE
aa of Prom I neat New Yorker la
daletly Heard at Slows
SIOUX FALLS, 8. D., Aug. 10 (Spe.
clal Telegram.) Mrs. Daniel Leroy
Dresser, who last fall established a resi
dence In Sioux Falls, was today granted
an absolute divorce from Daniel Dresser,
president of the Shipbuilding trust and of
the Trust Company of the Republic of
New York City. The divorce waa granted
by Judge Frank B. Smith of Mitchell, sit
ting In the state circuit court In this city
In place of Judge Joseph W. Jones, the
regular judge, who Is on a trip lo Eu
rope. The decree was granted Mrs. Dresser
on the ground of desertion. The question
of alimony did not enter Into the case
so far as the court records disclose, thla
feature evidently having been adjusted
out of court. At the hearing before Judge
Smith. Mrs. Dresser was represented by
I'nlted States Senator Klttnedge of Sioux
Fall", while C. W. Qould of the New York
bar and K. R. Wlans of Sioux Falls rep
resented Mr. presser. The decree was
granted Immediately after the hearing.
Mrs. Dresser, It Is stated In her behalf,
is not yet ready to discuss her future
plans. She has, lived very quietly since
taking up her residence In Sioux "alls and
not until nearly four months after she
arrived In the city was her presence dis

IOWA FALLS. Ia.. Aug. 10. (Special.)
Twcnty-threo women voting for an Inter
urban tax of t per cent disproves that "23"
Is alwaja a hoodoo, for the tax carried by
a big majority. These twenty-three Eldora
women may be said to be the pioneers in
legally voting at an election in Iowa, for
their votes were probably the first cast
after the decision of the. supreme court of
the state In which It was held that women
may vote when any question involving the
Increase of taxation Is at stake. The court.
In passing on the question, holds that
women cannot be denied the right of the
ballot when the question of taxation Is In

BUILDING FOR CORN SHOW

altloa fa Hat Worrying Over
Coaapietloa of the
Instead of using tne Auditorium for the
National Corn Exposition the management
may build a temporary structure on the
order of the Traoamlssisslppt exposition
buildings as the main edifice and one or
two small buildings for the Industrial ex
hibits. These structures with the alfalfa
palace will give the exposition from 200.000
to 280,000 feet of floor apace, which Is much
more than the Auditorium will furnish
for the big exposition.
Besides the Auditorium Is not completed.
Tho roof Is not In place and It Is only a
little more than three months until people
will come to Omaha from all parts of the
United State to visit the National Corn
Exposition and they will expect to see
something In keeping with tha reputation
which Omaha gained by th big Transmls
slsslppt and International exposition.
P. A. Nash, president of the Auditorium
company, says the company only wants
M.000 or IS.OCO. It offers the aecjnd mort
gage bonds, but business men are not tak
ing them, though when the $40,000 la put on
th Auditorium In' the form of a aecond
mortgage there will be but $0,000 mortgage
on a property worth $300,000 to $360,000 at
th very least.
Mr. Nash thought pcrhip the work of
completing the Auditorium would begin
September 1, but there Is nothing sure
about It. Th Omaha Real Estate exchange
pledged $1,000 and haa not made good, which
necessitates the Auditorium company sell
ing $1,000 to someone else. Mr. Nash aald
he Intended to get busy the coming week
and see what can be done. He Mid ten
business men should take $1,000 worth of
the aecond mortgage bonds aa soon as It
became known that finishing the building
for the corn exposition was absolutely nec
essary. Ho Worry Over Aadltorlam.
In the meantime the budding committee
of the 'National Corn Exposition Is not
worylng over the Auditorium. It ia said
by members of the committee that a build
ing or a number of them will be provided,
and will be as good, if not better, than the
Auditorium. They propose . to erect this
building at Eighteenth and Douglas streets,
as many blocks away from the Auditorium
that the thousands . of visitors who come
to the National Corn exposition will not
'even be forced to see the building which
remains Incomplete within a few months of
the opening of a show, which will doubtless
be the seoond greatest event In the history
of Omaha, so far as attracting ,the atten
tion of the world Is concerned.
The Auditorium needs a roof, and few.
If any of tha decorations originally planned,
hav been , added since It waa opened.
Forty thousand dollars will pay the float
ing uebt and finish the building, according
to President Nash, but he Is unwilling to
begin work until the $40,000 is In the bank.
The proposition of "giving" the building
to the city has been quiet for two weeks.
It Is said it would not be possible to
"give" the property to the city and hav It
completed In time for the corn show, but,
In the meantime, f.ie building committee
of the corn exposition, headed pf Emil
Brandels of J. L. Brandels & Sons, Is not
losing any Bleep over whether tha Auditor
turn is finished or not. -
JAP OFFICIAL LAUDS AMERICA
Mayor of Yokohama Advlaea Rayal
Welcome lor atlantle Fleet
TOKIO. July . In the course, of an ad
dress delivered at an Informal meeting of
the member of th Yokohama city assem
bly Mayor Mltsushashl dealt with the forth
coming visit of th American fleet in terms
of conspicuous cordiality. Among all the
treaty rowers holding relatione with Japan,
the United States, he declared, held toward
th'a nation a unique position. Referring to
the American appropriation of $1,800,000 for
the purpose of the "grand Japanese ex
position of 1912, the speaker aa'.d:
'Such an enormous appropriation, sev
eral times larger than that originally pro
posed. Is no doubt du to the fact that pub
lic opinion In the United States is now, aa
it ever was, very friendly toward our em
pire. As to the relations between th
United States and Tokohama, although well
known to you, I may Tefer to the fact that
the Shlmonoarkl indemnity, together with
interest thereon so generously returned to
us by the United States formed the prin
cipal part of the expenses of the first con
struction of Yokohama harbor,' only a small
amount having been added thereto by th
government. With regard to foreign trade
between Japan and America, I do not con
sider it necessary to give any statistics.
Suffice It to say that our exports to Amer
ica alwaya exceed our Imports from them,
and there Is every prospect that the export
trade will Increase year by year. Regard
ing thla export trade I may mention tha
It la much larger from Yokohama than
from any of the other open porta.
"In view of our International relations
with America and Yokohama's position in
the trade with that republic I think It Is
necessary that th city ahall tak all pos
sible steps as a host to extend aa grand
and cordial a welcome to th American fleet
on Its arrival here as- tho circumstances
FIRST VIOLENCE IN STRIKE

WINNIPEG, Man.. Aug. tt. Th first
act of violence of the Canadian Pacific;
railway strike occurred last midnight, whrn
almost all th windows In the coaches of
a passenger train were broken by st jnea
burled by unknowa person in the St.
Bonafac yards aoross Red river from
here. No ona was Injured.
Today twelve workmen who had begun
work yesterday walked. out of the yaids,
remarking ta the strikers' pickets at the
galea that they "did not propose to remain
Imprisoned like convicts."
With regard to an assertion' that th
present struggle Is between the railroad
and union leaders rather than the men,
J. H. McVay aald:
"Such a atatement Is absurd. There was
not time enough between the lasuing of
th arbitration commission award and the
beginning of the strike for ua to Influence
the men. Nor was any such attempt made.
All that waa submitted to th man waa
the award of the commleston with th
question as to whether the men would ac
cept or not. The vote for a atrlke was
absolutely a spontaneous movement by th
men thmelv and they are sticking to
It with practical unanimity."
Local striker emphatically deny that
th nglnr' union will support them.' Th
strikers say that In another week -many
of the trains will be unfit for th road.

country life. My Immediate purpose In ap
pointing this commission I to secure from
It such Information and advice as will ro
uble men to make recommendations to con
gress upon this extremely Important mat
ter. I ahall be glad If the commission will
report to me upon the present condition of
country life, upon what means are now
available for supplying th deficiencies
which exist, and upon the best methods of
organized permanent effort In investigation
and actual work along the lines I hav
Indicated. You will doubtless also find it
necessary to suggest means for bringing
about the redirection or better adaption of
rural schools to the training of children
ror lire on tne farm. Th national and
state agricultural departments muit ultl-
mairiy join wun jne various tanners ana
agricultural organisations in the effort to
secure great efficiency and attractiveness
In country life.
In view of the Dressing importance of
this aubject, I should be glad to hav your
report oerore ine end or next necemner.
For that reason the commission will doubt
less find It impracticable to undertake ex
tensive Investigations, but will rather con-
rine ltseir to a summary of what is al
ready known, a statement of th problem,
and the recommendation of measures tend
ing towards Its solution. With the single
exception of the conservation of our natu
ral resources, which underlies the problem
nf rural life, there ia no other material
question of greater Importance now before

port. Sincerely yours.

of th International Historical congress,
David Jayr-e Hill, tho American ambassa
dor to Germany, made the announcement
that Adolphus Buech of St. Louis, was
ready to give $60,000 toward the German
museum building at Harvard university.
Dr. Hill said:
On November 10. 1903. the anniversary of
the birth of Johann Schiller, the famous
German poet, dramatist and historian,
there was opened at Harvard a museum in
which It waa Intended to collect an exhibit
f worka representative of German art cul
ture. This collection has now grown to tw
on of the moat complete of It kind-Ira ex
istence. It haa received from hla majesty
the German emperor, not only assurances
of his general Interest, but many substan
tial gifts which were received in the United
State witn gratitude ana appreciation a
marks of genuine friendship.
This collection already has been very
great and It promise to become, perhaps
th moat Impressive embodiment of art of
the old world to be found on the shore of
the naw world. It la therefore with great
