Plain but forceful and full of Inspiration
and good counsel was tho message con
veyed to the senior class of tho high
school by Hev. Dwlght W. ".Viiey, pastor
of the First I'reshyterlan church of Iowa
City and a member of the faculty of tho
Iowa State urlverslty. In his baccalaureate
sermon delivered in tho high school au
ditorium yesterday afternoon. His address.
replete with quotation and illustration, was
listened to with the deepest Interest and
closest attention by an audlcnco which
filled the large hall.
The message tnat the speaker sought to
convey to the young men and women about
to leave the high school to enter the world
with Its multitudinous cares and tempta
tions was that If they remained true to
their Ideals they would be bound to suc
ceed and to make their Uvea what God's
wish for them was. While Itev. Mr. Wiley
took as his text Oenesls ir.xlx. "And they
said one to another, behold this dreamer
eometh," It might aptly have been, "What
Can I Dor
"Success comes In 'cans,' failure In
'can't.' The one who Is faithful to the
end is going to get the reward. Fortune
knocks once at every man's door. Se to
It that you are at home. Stand for truth
and fear not a little ridicule; be true to
ycurselves and to your Ood and success
will be yours In this world you are now
about to enter.

WA81HNGTON, May SO. The plana of
republlcanleaders in congress have gone
awry so many times In the last several
weeks that they are chary of announcing
any program for the remaining days of tho
present session or of speculating on how
long that period is likely to be.
In the senate the men In charge of the
"railroad bill would have staked their repu
tations upon the certainty that there would
be a final voto upon it before the end of
last week. In the house the republican cau
cus continued for three nights In succes
sion for the purpose of perfecting the postal
savings bank bill, but an agreement was
not reached and one Is not in sight. The
caucus will be resumed next Wednesday
The situation In connection with tho rail
road was complicated by the introduction ot
an amendment relating to mergers of rail
roads which was offered by Senator Brown
of Nebraska, just before the adjournment
on Friday. The provision contains all of
the prohibitive features of the original
section 13, and none of the advantages for
the railroads contained In tho section
struck out. So involved did the situation
become that the leaders hastily adjourned
the session expecting to resume consider
ation of the bill yesterday, but tha speech
ot Senator Lorlmer prevented. The sena
tors in charge of the bill do not want the
Brown amendment, but it may be difficult
for them to defeat It. It Is not likely that
it will result in the leaders making further
concessions to the Insurgents.
The railroad bill will be taken up again
by the senate on Tuesday and the final vote
may be had on that day, although there
Is no certainty about It.
