Th citizen of Council Illuffs and many
of hi constituents from the Nlnlh Iowa
district, paid tribute to Congressman Wal
ter I. Kmlth by attending the public In
ception held during the afternoon In Bay
line park and later In the evening. Vat
banquet given In til bonor at the grand
hotel. What may have been lacking In
numben at the afternoon reception waa
made up In the cordiality and enthusiasm
with which Judge Smith was greeted by
11, Irrespective of political affiliation. It
waa the greeting due a distinguished cltl
aen, who has served on the district bencli
and In the halls of congress. Every seat
In trie banquet hall was oocupled.
The reception In Bayllss park In the
afternoon was strictly a nonpartisan wel
come, such as It had been Intended It
should be. The esteem and affection In
which Judge Kmlth Is held by the veterans
of the civil war was evidenced when the
old soldiers gathered at their post head
quarters and marched to the congress
man's residence and formed his escort to
the platform In tli park from which, the
brief exercises were held. .The old soldiers
were accorded seats on the platform, and
Congressman flmith In hr brief address
spoke feelingly of the attention paid him
by those veterans of the civil war.
GirrrluM In tbe 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 decorations In
honor of the occasslon. The short pro
gram of addresses was precrled and fol
lowed by a concert by Covalt's orchestra,
which waa enjoyed by the large crowd.
To Robert B. Wallace, former council
man, waa- assigned the honor of presiding
at the afternoon exercises, and In his In
troductory address Mr. Wallace spoke In
part as follows: N
Our city has 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 nhould atand upon the broad and
liberal ground that our distinguished fol
low cltlxea and congressman has wrought
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 aay to him
upon this ncvaslon, that, while the Ninth
district In the past has often honored him,
he has many times over honored his home
city and state.
Turning to Judge Smith. Mr. Wallace la
closlnf said:
We come, not as republicans or demo
crats; not as of one religious denomina
tion or another; we come with our politi
cal doctrins hurled and oar personal
prejudice forgotten, to extend to you, oar
fellow cltixen, a hearty welcome home.
Tribute of Judare Deemer.
Mr. Wallace then Introduced Hon. Ho
race K. Ieemer of Red pa. Judge of the
Iowa Phiprem court, who from his ac
quaintance of more than twenty-two years
with Judge Smith drew material for an
eulogy of the congressman's character aa
a man, his ability as a lawyer and of Ms
public services, aaylng In part:
I care not how far Judge Pmlth may be
advanced, may he become speaker of the
house of representatives, or member of
the I'nltecl States senate, he will do as
much honor to you in either position as
he Is dolr in his present place In the halls
of congress.
Tou appreciate that fact 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-lltlcal
In character.
There are many reasons why the people
of Council Bluffs should be proud of
Judge Smith, In the first 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
terests and of that you should be proud.
And. farther than that, no member of
congress from this district has ever at
tained the high position that Judge Smith
Judge Smith Is no Idealist: he Is not a
mere theorist, but he la a finely educated
gentleman In all phases. I have seen him
In 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
aaw him go through the starvation period.
before hia talents were recognlxed and he
begun to make for himself a place In this
I saw him take his place on the judicial
bench of this 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
tinned and that was Judge Walter I
Smith. Me was sent to represent us In the
Washington know something of his stand
halls of congress and we all know of his
record there. Tou who have been to
lng and character in that city.
Honor Guest Responds.
Congressman Smith spoke briefly, open
ing his address with the following quota
tion from an address of James A. Gar
field before the Ohio legislature on the
occasion of his election to the United
States senate:
The flowers that bloom over the garden
wall of parry politics are ths sweetest and
most fragrant that bloom In the gardens
of this world, and. where we can fairly
filuck them and enjoy their fragiance. It
s manly and delightful to do ao.
He emphasised his appreciation of the
nonpartisan welcome and expression, of
esteem from his fellow townsmen and the
people of his district, expressing pride In
the fact that he had been born and had
lived hia entire life In Council Bluffs.
At the banquet, which was a delight

felicitous manner. While the menu waa

Palo Alto County People Hare BIS
Scheme On.
MASON CITY. Ia., Aug. V. (Special.
A project to reclaim something like 31,000
acres of land in Palo Alto county and to
greatly benefit 18.000 acres more Is now
under consideration, and It carried through
successfully there the contagion Is likely
to spread generally, for the same condition
prevails In most counties of the middle
west. The project la to straighten the Dei
Moines river. At present It la a very
crooked stream. ' An engineer has been
there to look over the situatloa and his re
port la most favorable. About sixty section
of land would be affected.
From the north and south . boundary of
the county there la a fall of about seventy'
five feet, according to the geological sur
vey. The river has a total length in the
county of 61.W miles. The proposed lm
provement would reduce this one-half, or,
to be accurate, M.S miles. This would give
the fall to the proposed new riverbed
of about three feet per mile, and this
would give abundant watet; power and a
splendid opportunity for Irrigation should
ever occasion demand.
A rough estimate has been secured aa
to the cost and the figure has been placed
at . $235,000. This would mean a tax
of $8.40 per acre on the land redeemed and
$250 on the land otherwise benefited, and It
Is figured that one good crop would pay
all the cost and have a balance left.

Attorney Oeneral H. W. Byers while In
Council Bluffs Thursday conferred With
George U. Wright, local attorney for the
t'nlon Paclflo railroad, relative to the
tfOO.000 filing fee which Mr. Byers olalms
Is due the state of Iowa by that railroad.
The claim la made under the law enacted
by the Thirty-second general assembly, re
quiring the payment of a fee of SI for aaoh
$1,000 Increase In capitalisation ef corpora
tlons doing business in Iowa, IUi claimed
the Union Paolflo has Increased Its capi
tal 300,000,000 since the law went Into
effect, and therefore tha company should
have paid a fee of 1300,000.
Attorney General Byers, after talking the
matter over with Mr. Wright, agreed not
to Institute any action rogklng toward the
recovery of this Immense fee until after a
case involving similar question which Is
now pending in the United States supreme
court. Is determined. In any case it is the
intention. It Is understood, of the Union
Paclflo to resist this claim of the state
of Iowa on the grounds that such a fee la
extortionate and excessive.
Mr. Byers returned to Des Molnrs early
yesterday morning. He expects to come
to Council Bluffs again next Thursday
evening and on Friday will deliver an ad
dress at ths county plcnlo In connection
with the corn seed experimental station at
the poor farm at McClelland.

I never was much of a success selling cheap
things, so the man who does not, and will not,
realize a difference in workmanship, woodTpaint,
trimming, iron work, eto., will not be astounded
at the prices I am quoting during my "Sale of
every vehicle in the building."
' 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 $4.93 at a bang up bargain sale.
I have a building full of real values in vehicles
but they are 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 a $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 kindson
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, eto. 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 chances here now.
As I have stated on several occasions, "every
vehicle must go" I am going to spread in the
automobile business soon.
