or All Warmly F-ologlsa
The citizen of Council Itluff and many

district, paid tribute to Congressman Wai
ter 1. tSmlth by attending the public in
ception held during the afternoon In Bay
ling park and later In the evening;, tiie
banquet given In hi honor at the grand
hotel. What may have been lacking In
numbers at the afternoon reception was
made up In the cordiality and enthusiasm
with which Judge Smith was greeted by
all, Irrespective of political affiliation. It
was the greeting due a distinguished cltl
aen, who has served on the district bench
and In the halls of congress. Every seat
in the banquet hall was occupied.
The reception In Bayllss park In the
afternoon was strictly a nonpartisan wel
icma, such as it had been Intended It
should be. The esteem and affection In
which Judge Smith is held by the veterans
of the civil war was evidenced when the
old soldier gathered at their post head
quarters and marched to the congress
man' residence and formed hi escort to
the platform In the park from which, the
brief exercises were held. .The old soldiers
were accorded seals on the platform, and
Congressman Smith In hts brief address
spoke feelingly of the attention paid him
by those veterans of the civil war.
Exrrdsrs la the Park.
Many of the business houses In the Im
mediate vicinity of the park and a num
ber of private residences In that neighbor
hood displayed flags and decoration In
honor of the oceasslon. The short pro
gram of addresses was preceded and fol
lowed try a concert by Covalt's orchestra,
which wis enjoyed by the large crowd.
To Robert B. Wallace, former council
man, was- assigned the honor of presiding
at the afternoon exercises, ami in hi In
troductory address Mr. Wallace apok In
part as follow: x
Our city ha the reputation of being able
to throw aside, whenever Uie occasion de
mands, any political or personal differ
ences, and enter with a sincere spirit Into
suoh a celebration as we are enjoying to
day. We vltould stand upon the broad and
liberal ground that our distinguished ful-
row cltltea and congressman has Wrowsrht
honor and credit to our community, and
therefore we are glad. Indeed, of the op
portunity to extend to him the right hand
of good fellowship. We can amy to him
upon this occasion, that, while the Ninth
district In the past has often honored him,
he has many time over honored his home
city and state.
Turning to Judge Smith, Mr. Wallace la
We come, not a republlcn or demo
crat; not as of one religious denomina
tion or another; we come with our politi
cal doctrines burled and oar personal
prejudice forgotten, to extend to you, oar
fellow cltlxen, a hearty welcome home.
Tribute of Judge Deemer.
Mr. Wallace then Introduced Hon. Ho
race R. Ieemer of Red paA. Judge of the
Iowa ftupreme court, who from hi ac
quaintance of more than twenty-two years
with Judge Smith drew material for an
eulogy of the congressman' character aa
a man, hi ability a a lawyer and of hi
public services, saying In part:
I care not how far Judge Bmlth may be
advanced, may he become speaker of the
house of representatives, or member of
the United States senate, he will do as
much honor to you In either position as
he Is doing In his present place fn the halls
You appreciate that faot and, without
any suggestion from him you gave him
this warm demonstration. I am glad to
know that It Is non-partisan and non-po-lltleal
There are many reaaori why the people
of Council Bluffs should be proud of
Judge Smith. In the flnrt place he was
born In Council Bluffs and I have no
doubt you are proud of It. In the second
place he has always been true to your In
terest and of that you should be proud.
And. farther than that, no member of
congress from thl district has ever at
tatned the high position that Judge Smith
Judge Smith is no Idealist; he Is not a
mere theorist, but he Is a finely educated
rrentletrmn In all phases. I have seen him
n the flush of victory, I have seen him. In
the disappointment of defeat and through
It all he was strong, honest and courag
eous. I saw him take his place at the bar. I
saw him go through the starvation period,
before his talents were recognized and he
begun to make for himself a place in this
I saw him take hi place on the Judicial
bench of thl dlctrlct and saw his excel
lent work In that field and, finally, It
became necessary for this people to select
a man to go down to Washington and
represent the district In the halls of con
gress. There was but one name men
tioned and that was Judge Walter I
Smith. He was sent to represent ti In the
Washington know something of his stand
halls of congress and we all know of his
record there. You who have been to
Ing and character in that city.

PLANS TO STRAIOHTEX HIVErl
Palo Alto County People Have Bl
Scheme On. -MASON
CITT, la., Aug. .-(Bpeclal r-
A project to reclaim something Ilka 31,000
acre of land in Palo A Ho county and to
greatly benefit 18,000 acres more 1 now
under consideration, and If carried through
aucceasfully there the contagion is likely
to spread generally, for the same condition
prevails in most counties of the middle
west The project Is to straighten the Dei
Moines river. At present It la a very
crooked stream. An engineer has been
there to look over the situation and hi re
port la most favorable. About sixty section
of land would be affected.
From the north and south . boundary of
the county there Is a fall of about seventy
five feet, according to the geological sur
vey. The river ha a total length In the
county of 62.28 mile. The proposed, Im
provement would reduce this one-half, or,
to be accurate, M.t miles. Thl would give
the fall to the proposed Dew riverbed
of about three feet per mils, and this
would give abundant watej power and a
splendid opportunity for Irrigation ahould
ever occasion demand.
A rough estimate ha been secured aa
to the cost and the figure ha been placed
at . $235,000. Thl would mean a tax
of IS. 40 per acre on the land redeemed and
1200 on the land otherwise benefited, and it
Is figured that on good crop would pay
all the cost and have a balance left.

quiring the payment of a fee of II for each

the Union Paolflo has Increased Its cap!
tal 2300,000,000 since the law went Into

to Institute any action rooking toward the
recovery of this immense fee until after a

I never was much of a succeta selling cheap
things, bo the man who does not, and will not,
realize a difference in workmanship, woodTpalnt,
trimming, iron work, etc., will not be astounded
at the prices I am quoting during my "Sale of
every vehicle in the building.1 1
' But the man who fairly drinks in the graceful
lines and superb workmanship of a high class
vehicle, will go into ecstacies over this selling. He
will be pleased as the woman who has just found
a $10.00 dress for $4.03 at a bang up bargain sale.
I have a building full of real values in vehicles
but they aro high class vehicles, the sort I have
aways been successful in selling, and the only sort
I should continue to sell were I to remain in the
vehicle business in place of going deeper into auto
mobiles and repairing. '
I am not offering a Stanhope for $25.00, but I
am offering" i $165.00 Stanhope for $95.00. I am
not offering a Runabout for $15.00 but I am offer
ing a $175.00 Runabout for $115.00.
And, for instance, the Spring Buggy I adver
tise at $135.00 one couldn't begin to duplicate" it
under $225.00. Then, too, the Delivery Wagons
that are offered here now at $88.00 they're real
$125.00 wagons. There may be cheaper kinds on
the market but yon don't want them and I am sure
I don't. -
I have always been successful selling high
class Jobs, so what's the use?
The same holds goods on harness, stable ac
cessories, eta I am selling 'em cheap but they
are not cheap kinds. You are getting the good
kinds cheap here now.
So if you know values, or are willing to have
them explained to you, you may strike some won-
derful phances here now. '
As I have stated on several occasions, "every
vehicle must go" I am going to spread in the
automobile business soon.
