(From a Staff Correspondent.)
EES MOINES. Sept. J4 ("pedal. (-The
program for the welcome to l'realdent
Tafl In Iowa, which ia now complete,
leaves little to be done, and It is cer
tain that when ha comes through Iowa
the latter part of the week he will be re
ceived with the acclaim that Is due his
high office. The governor took personal
charge of the arrangements In tha stato
and has provided the various parties that
are to meet the presidential party.
special ear haa been secured which will
tarry the governor and two of the state
officials, also the governor's military
staff and some of the members of con
greet. This will accompany the presi
dential train all through Iowa. The mem
bers of the party will Join In the break
fast to the president her and tha dinner
at Ottumwa and other social fcatuns
of the trip.
The president Is to speak at a number
of places along the Una of the Illinois
Central from Council Bluffs to Waterloo
on Thursday, stopping for his chief
meeting at Fort Podge, the home of the
Junior t'nlted Plate senator. A big
meeting baa been arranged at Waterloo.
In Pes Moines the breakfast will be at
the Orant club and by Invitation only,
so that the number shall be limited. At
the Coliseum tha president Is to be Intro
duced by Governor Carroll. The local
reception committee Is headed by Sen
At Iowa Falls, tha president Is to speak
at a home-coming festival and at Knox
vllle he w'lll meet another home-coming
week. Rut most of the meetings ar
ranged for him will be purely political
in nature and It ia anticipated that the
president will discuss soma of tha phases
of national political Ufa at some or all
of the meetings. '
Morrmcst for a State Primary.
There is a movement well under way
In the state for having the matter of
the delegates to the next republican na
tional convention settled by a state wide
primary of the members of the party.
It was suggested by the standpatters and
later taken up by the progressives and
the leaders on both sides aia inclined
to agree upon some plan that will avoid
an Injurious contest Itv the party next
year. As to whether or not they can
agree upon the matter Is yet to be de
termined, but otherwise the matter
of the attitude of the party In national
affairs will be decided by the old cau
cus and convention system. The machin
ery for thla will have to all be built up
again, and In many counties special pri
maries will be used In place of the cau
cuses. Thus far there Is very little ac
tivity among politicians on the matter of
candidates for delegates, but following
the trip of the president through the
state It ! expected there will be some
Jf Flab for Iowa Rivers.
It la probable that there will be no sup
ply of fish for the Iowa rivers this fall.
The state game warden baa been in the
habit of seining the large bayous along
the Mississippi river to take out the
young fish and to distribute them to the
smaller streams. But he reports that the
Mississippi river Is nearly dry and has
been so for so long that the bayou have
very few fish and they cannot be taken
out as In the past. The commissioner
probably win take eome of the young
perch from Spirit lake and other lakes
and put them into the Iowa rivers.
Want Rate es Feeders Restored.
The Iowa stock, shippers will make an
other effort to secure a reduction in the
rate to Iowa points on cattle "feeders"
for Iowa farmers. Borne time ago when
the railroad commission refused to In
crease the minimum weight for carload
lots of live stock the railroads, so It is
claimed, withdrew the special reduction
for cattle "feeders" and made all pay
alike. The shippers and farmers have de
cided upon going before the Interstate
Commerce commission to have these rates
restored and the Iowa Railroad commis
sion has filed the case on behalf of Iowa
Will Bay Water Works.
First definite steps looking toward the
purchase of the water plant by the city
from the Pee Moines Water company
since . the authority was granted last
spring will be taken next week. The city
council, through the legal department,
will ask the supreme court to name a
board to sit In condemnation proceedings
as provided by law. The necessary papers
will then be filed. Three district Judges
outside of Polk county will constitute ths
arbitration board and their appointment
and selection rests with the supreme
To Bring Baek Convict.
The State Board of Control has directed
Warden Barr of the' state reformatory at

Winnipeg, Canada, If he should by any
chanoe be released from custody up there.

brother, escaped from the reformatory

SXeoB Law Case Set for Hearing-.

tha court would be ready to hear them
next Tuesday morning, quite a number
have asked to be beard In the case, as
there are several Important points to be
considered. The attorneys have been here
this week ready to argue the case, but
the large number of oral arguments haa
made It Impossible,
"entlnent Growing for Wllsoa.
Quite a number of deraocrstlc lawyers
of the state attended supreme court ses
sions here this week, and generally they
report that the sentiment In Iowa In favor
of the nomination of WotxlrnW Wilson
for president Is growing In the state.
Rome of th,em insist that If a vote was
taken In Iowa today Wilson would lead
all others in the race.

dent spoke of the good the Toung Men s
Christian association has done in the
world as he has seen It. and dltrraasod
sufficiently to resent publicly the allega
tions as to arunkenness and dissipation
in American universities made by Mr.
Crane of Chicago recently.
"I do not know." said the president,
"whether you have observed the attack
made upon young men at Harvard by
some gentleman who felt It necessary to
send a detective Into the community to
find out how wicked the boys were- I
have not any sympathy with that kind
of Investigation. Wickedness that has to
be unearthed with a spade ordinarily
ought to be kept under the clod that the
spade raises. I know something about
those universities. I know Its sister
university, Yale. The truth Is universi
ties don't differ much. I know what
Yale was In my day. and I know it might
have been better. I could contribute
something to the detective's knowledge
of those days possibly, but there Is a
higher standard of morality. Dissipation
and drinking are frowned upon by the
public opinion of the college. That Is
what shows what a college Is the public
opinion of the young- men and young
women who are In It; and I resent scan
dal making and muckraking with refer
ence to the standard of our universities
when they are doing such food work and
are putting out men Into the community
with higher moral Ideas every year."

AS IT IS IN WASHINGTON
LINCOLN. Neb.. Sept 24. George A.
Lee, for several years a member of de
bating teams at the university, later
assistant attorney general of Washing
ton, and at present chairman of the
Workmen's Compensation commission of
that state was in the city today Speak
ing of that act Mr. Lee said:
"The Washington compulsory compen
sation act for workmen Is patterned
after the successful German system and
embodies in a thorough manner the prin
ciples of compulsory state Insurance.
The employers of the state contribute
to an accident fund out of which all In
lured workmen and relative dependents
In case of decease are paid. The maxi
mum payment In case of death Is 4,oco.
"The evils of the old employers' lia
bility or common law became so Intoler
able that remedied legislation of this
kind was Imperatively necessary. With
'ambulance chasing,' lawyers pestering
the workmen and casualty and liability
companies burdening the employes, so

BLOOMINGTON. Neb., Sept. U (Spe

The conference that closes Its business
Monday morning has been one of the
most Interesting and best attended of any
held In this district In recent years. All
of the sessions have been held In Trinity
Methodist church. Twenty-first and Bln
ney streets. The attendance has been
around 160, preachers and laymen. Few,
If any, have been compelled to go to the
hotels. Ivarge numbers of the homes In
the north part of the city were turned
over to the vlslUng Methodists and In
these they were welcome guests.
Although established but twenty-five
years, Trinity Methodist church has
turned out of Its pulpit somo distinguished
men. From It three of the pastors, J. W.
Jennings, H. H. Millard and IS. T. George,
have since become presiding elders.
All Hats Are Marked.
While It was no reflection upon Meth
odism, every Methodist attending the con.
ference, or at least the men, took occa
sion to mark his hat. The hats worn
by the men were doffen when the owners
entered the building and placed upon a
large table In the Sunday school room.
Into the band of each piece of headgear
was placed a card, on which was writ
ten or printed the name of the owner.
Every man at first felt that Is wss am
pugninK the honesty of someone, but In
the end, tall agreed that It was a good
thing, as It prevented any mixup in hats.
Sunday evening there were two services
held in Trinity, but neither of them had
to do with the conforence. The first m-ss
at 7 o'clock and was an Epworth league
rally, at which the speaker uas Rev. 15.
M. Randall of Chicago, general secretary
of the league. At 8 o'clock there was
held an anniversary service of the board
of Sunday schools. At this the speaker
was Rev. Edgar Blake, likewise of Chi
cago, assistant secretary of the board.
The attendance of Methodist ministers
at the evening meetings waa very small,
not because they did not feel an interest,
but because of the fact that upon Invi
tation, they were filling the pulpits of
almost all of the other churches In
Omaha, South Omaha and Council Bluffs.

But when overwork or anxiety breaks
