Wants Sunday to
Preach Over There
"Come over into Council Bluffs and
help us," a delegation of the churchmen
; Implored "Billy" Sunday, paraphrasing
the scriptural passage, "Come over into
, Macedonia and help us."
They called upon the revivalist in his
rooms at Hotel Loyal Saturday morning,
while "Billy" was still wearing his bath
robe and lounging In a big arm chair.
"We want you to preach a sermon in
Council Bluffs," they, explained, "for the
purpose of creating public sentiment

legging Joints tr-u are coming m to take
the place of the saloons.
"Although Iowa has gone dry and ths
saloons must close i up January 1, we
have failed tn our efforts to have the
people demand a strict enforcement of
the liquor laws. You are the best quali
fied man In the country to help us, and
we need you bad."
Mr. Sunday hesitated to accept the call,
saying that his famous sermon, "Boose,"
would "fall flat," If the state has al-
71 1 ready gone dry.
l He finally promised, however, that he
7,j : would preach a sermon In the Council

during the Omaha campaign, although he
had previously decided not to work any
more on his weekly rest day.

and Prince Von Hatxfeldt, who are vis
iting this city, will leave next Tuesday
for Mexico, It was announced today.
Both men maintain silence as to their
exact destination and the object of their
visit o the southern republic.
Captain Von Papen. In a statement Is
Surd yesterday, denied that he referred
In a private letter to Americans as "Idi
otic. Yankee." He said the phrase was
used In connection with reference to a
certain eastern newspaper.
"The much dlecuraed letter was to my
wife," he setd. "In passing it may be
said that publishing a man's letter to his
wife Is deuced bad form. When the

have been 27 cents.' The local
creameries have heretofore taken the
Elgin price and then added a cent
for cartons and delivery so that the
local grocers paid 1 cent more than
the Elgin price.
Today and tomorrow and all this week
the price of butter In Omaha Is to be IS
cents a pound to the grocers, which Is a
out -of t cents lower than it would have
been under the old regime.
Some time ago an effort was made te
start a move here te mako Omaha a real
butter market and now It has borne fruit
and the creameries have cut loose from
the old traditions which have been blad
ing them for so long. The local manu
facturers argued that as long as Omaha
was the largest butter, producing city In
the -world there was no reason In being
dictated to by Elgin as to what should
be charged for butter.
