BRYANT TALKS WORLD PEACE
Start is Made Toward Founding a
World Peace Society Here.
WOULD FORM WORLD CONGRESS

Wnr llFcnnnc of Its I'rr
rnl Wnr IJclit.
first steps toward the founding of a
world peace society In Omaha were
token at the Commercial cluli at noon
fotlowinr. nn address on world arbitration
by Albert Q. Bryant of the World Peace
Foundation. William F. Baxter was
chosen as chairman of a committee to be
named by him to recommend to the
Commercial club that the commute work
In conjunction with that organisation.
The meeting was attended by about fif
teen representative business and profes
sional men of Omaha who are Interested
In world peace. Mr. Bryant did not wish
to speAk before the members of the club
as a whole, but only those who were In
terested In thn movement.
The adoption of it world congress made
up of the strongest and greatest brains of
all nations -for the purpose of settling In
ternational questions by arbitration Is the
aim of the World I'eace foundation and
wbb tho keynote of Mr. Bryant's address.
"I am not a rabid world peace advo
cate," said Mr. Bryant. "I do not be
Her that STery war In the past did not
bring tho results wanted and I do not
believe that some of them could have
been averted. What Is more, 1 do not
botlevo In total disarmament.
Great H octal Unit.
"The world Is n great .social unit and
we are faco to face with a great problem,
that of the possibility of war. War Is
only a' way of settling International
questions and these questions could be
settled by a world congress. A trcmen
dons war debt burdens tho world over.
Kvery country has a war flebt and some
of tho countries have larger debts than
others, but the smallest one is a burden
on Its country and the people.
"I was In California at the time tho
alien land bill was passed. I also knew
of the great pressure brought to bear on
tho legislature by some of the most in
fluential papers in tho country against
the adoption of the hill. It wan said that
tho passage of the bill would bring On war
with Japan. This was foolish. Japan
could not go to war with America. Japan
put up a great war against the Russians,
but it could not stage another such war
as that again in 100 years. Tho reason
Is that Japan borrowed every yen it
could get its hands on at the time and
today has a war debt of $1,400,000,000."
Mr. Bryan was high in his praise of the
'way lu which President Wilson has han
dled the Mexican situation and suggested
that the committee to which he spoke
send an expression of some later meeting
to the administration at Washington of
the manner In which President Wilson
has handled the Mexican situation.
The committee which will be appointed
by Mr. Baxter will keep In touch with
the American Peace society and also the
World Peace foundation and take ad
vantage of every possibility to promote
world pes.es so that In the end an Inter
national congress, which will work along
the same lines as the United Congress,
will control and settle ull questions and
thus ellnynate war.

KANSAS FARMERS ARE
NOT AT, ALL DISCOURAGED
Asher 11. Ilurrows. district
agent of the Nickel Plate road, working
out ot Kansas city, has come In contaat
witn crop conditions In Kansas to a great
extent during the last three months and
says that while the corn crop Is prac
tically a failure In that state farmers
are in no wise discouraged.
All through Kansas and Oklahoma
farmers raised an excellent crop of small
grain and the advancing prices are bring
ing them as much money as they have
had in former years. Though pastures
aro bad, most ot the farmers have plenty
ot rough feed and the cattle will come
through in good condition. The greatest
difficulty Is going to bo to secure feed
for fattening hogs, but by mixing wheat
with the old corn held over generally the
farmers have plenty of this mixed ration
to put their animals in good flesh for
Mr. Burrows adds that tho farmers are
taking hold with renewed energy and
aro laying their plans for putting out a
lorgo crop for next year. Onlv a fw

TO GIVE AWAY MANY FARMS
Government Will Throw Open Reser
vation in Montana Soon.
LAND CAPABLE OF BIO CROPS
When It Is All Farmed It Will Add
About Twenty Million More Hash
rl of Grain to Country's
In connection with the settlement of the
IFortPock Indian reservation which will
be thrown open this fall, it is interest
ing to forecast the probable future ot this
Immenso tract of fertile land, now In the
Infancy of Its agricultural development
With the opening of this reservation over
8,000 citizens wltt follow tho sage advice ot
the present tlmo are wheat which runs
his generation and go west to grow up
with tho country. Approximately 1,315.000
acres will be thrown opert to settlement
an area, twice as large as the sUto ot
Ithodo Island and a veritable empire on a
smalt scale. Koch settlor is entitled to
1C0 acres of land, making' 8,400 farms to
bo distributed. Allowing four members
to a family this will Increase the popu
lation of Montana by over 32,000 people.
Statistics show that every person on thn
farm supports on an average two peoplo
In tho towns and cities and it is fair
to assume that the territory contiguous
to tho reservation will benefit to this ex
tent, which brings the grand total up to
Prof. Thomas Shaw, the noted agri
cultural expert, estimate that when this
land Is cultivated It will contribute
000,000 more bushels of grain to the na
tion's annual production. The two prin
cipal crops grown on tho reservation at
the present time ar wheat, which runs
from twenty to twenty-flvo bushels to
the acre and oats, from sixty to eighty
five bushels to the acre. Prof. Shaw
estimates that this land will produce
8,406,00 bushels of Wheat and 6,180,000
bushels of oats per year. At the present
market quotations, SS cents a bushel for
wheat and 70 cents a bushel for oats, this
would make a grand total ot over 111,-
000,000 for tlioso crops alone.
Theso rough estimate will give some
idea of the prosperous future which
awaits this section of tho great state of
Montana. Half a dosen modem town-
sites have already - been located by tho
government at points along tho main
trans-continental line ot the Great North
ern railway, which runs through tho Fort
Peck reservation for over ninety miles.

the largest of any season," says R. D.

the more popular points being northern

havo come in for their share ot the sum
mer travel and the New England states
and northern New York have proven es
pecially attractive. The favorable ex
change arrangements made by tho lako
steamship lines have attracted many
people to take the Great Lakes route and
the lake travel has been so heavy that
it has been difficult In many caeea to
secure accommodations for those desiring
.to travel that way. The Buluth gateway
has proven especially attractive and one
of "the larger parties to take this route
were the Northwestern hotel men, who,
after their convention at Duluth last
week took tho Juniata for a trip to
Mackinac, Detroit and Buffalo, some ot
them leaving the Juniata at Mackinac
and using the steamship Manltou.
Other popular water trips include
tho St. Lawrence river, Lake Champlaln
