Accompanied by his daughters, Misses
Rose and Agnes, both young women,
Mayor John F. Fitzgerald of Boston ar
rived in the city at an early hour yester
day and did not have a minute to him
self. The mayor was met by Mayor Dahl
man. City Commissioner Butler, City
Clerk Flynn, Dr. II. M. Fttzglbbon and
R. 1p Carter and escorted to the Jlen
ehaw, where he breakfasted, his daugh
ters being taken to the home of R. L.
Carter, where they were the guests of
Mrs. Carter during the day, she being
an old friend of the Fitzgerald family
and having formerly lived In Boston.
After breakfast Mayor Fitzgerald was
driven about the city and at ndon de
livered an address at the qprnrajrchv
olujj, whore i. reoeptjpn 'war heja;"pur-v
Ing the afterndorjiwas planned to give
him anothefiWabou-the city to Florence-
and South Omaha. He and his
daughters had Intended to leave the city
in the evening, but' the maW? was pre
vailed, to remain over and Be the city's
truest at the? coronation ball this evening.
At this function he will bt accompanied
by his daughters and the party wjll leave
at 11:80 o'clock tonight, cn route to Ra
cine, Wis where the mayor Is scheduled
to dellvr an address tom&rrow night
on clvla matters.
Starts as Newsboy.
Mayor Fitzgerald Is a rapid-fire talker
and fetter .city, government Is his one,
hobby. Starting llfo as,' a loton news
boy !ne had a hard strtiggi;! But he'did
not Remain a newsboy. Shortly after
reaching his majority, in 1632, he was
elected a member of the Boston city
council and In 1K3 a member of the state
senate, bocornilig a member of congress
and mayor In 1906, to be re-elected' In
1910, running each time on the deraor
cratic ticket, and that in a city that
is strongly republican.
While he denies It, the mayor of Bos
ton is said to have a reputation as ait
orator and a man who has made a 'study
of city affairs. As a result he Is -In de
mand all over the country. While at
his hotel he received an Invitation from
the mayor, council and Commercial club
of Denver Inviting him to that' city to
address a public meeting there. Owing
to his limited time he was compelled to
decline the Invitation,
Country All Right. '
Major Fitzgerald is of the opinion that
there is nothing wrong with the country.
and In making 'his trip he says that on
every hand there are evidences of pros,
perlty and evidences of a continuance of
good , times. In the east conditions are
practically the same and no possibility
of any change unless It Is brought about
by a concerted effort upon the part of
those who demoralize the trade of the
United States and its Institutions b
seeking to bring -on a panic.
The revision of the tariff Mayor Fitz
gerald believes will bring about an un
precedented era of prosperity. He- take
the position that goods and wares In
America can be manufactured as cheaply
as In any other country In the world and
that on account of their superiority they
will ro Into foreign markets that at the
present time are unknown to American
In the east, says Mayor Fitzgerald,
people have a very high opinion of the
west and the central west,-looking upon
It as a section peopled by the best citi
zens of the United States, besides being
the bread basket of the world and a.
section from which comes about til the;
necessities that, supply the table. .'

four alienists who have examined
Schmidt In the Tombs at Mr. Whitman's
behest. Their formal report will be made
Schmidt's outburst of temper occurred
in the presence of a Jury of millionaires
empanstled to conduct the Inquest. The
verdict was quickly round. It follows:

government's experiment ih growing
Egyptian, cotton Jn the Irrigated, section!
of the southwest has shown that such
cotton nlay be raised nUccessfutly there
and at fair profit, according to Carl B.
Schdtield, agriculturist, In charge of
western Irrigation farming, of the United
States Department of Agriculture. In an
address delivered today before the Na
tional Association ot Cdtton Manufac
turers Mr. Bchofleld announced the re
sults of the' experiment.
A supply of seid obtained joy the gov
ernment and distributed among seventy
five farmers In- Arizona and California,
sufficed to plant 630 acres. In the Salt
River valley, Arizona where the best re
sults were obtained, Mr. rlchofleld said
thirty-two farmers planted "303 acres.
Their several fields were measitfed and
a record, kept of the harvest. This rec
ord Mr. Schofleld read as follows:
Yield of fiber.
Size of field,
Alfalfa has proved to be the best alter
netting crop to be used with this cotton,
Mr. Schofleld said. The quality of the
cotton was excellent, some of the lint
stapling slightly more than one and one
half inches and the bulk one and seven,
sixteenth Inches. The price obtained for
the cotton, ho said, varied between 21 and
23 cents a pound. About 1,00 pounds of
seed cotton of the Tfuma variety the kind
used, yielded a fcOO-pound bale and the
cotton seed obtained therefore was more
than sufficient to pay for the ginning
and baling, even when sold to an oil mill
at the low figure of $15 a ton.
Mr. Schofleld estlmuted the cost of pro
ducing an aero of Egyptian cotton-basing
his estimate on averages at approxi
mately J61, exclusive of Interest on land
Investments. This he divided as followsj
Seed, tillage and Irrigation, $15; picking
(1,S00 pounds seed cotton), $36; ginning
and baling,- t'lO. As the average yield In
the Salt. River valley experiment was In
excess of a bale an acre the profit was
consequently a good one approximating
$50 an acre.
