It was directed at Charlea Wooster of Silver Creek, Neb., by State Sena tor J. D. Brown of Leon, la. Brown la a veteran of the civil war who marched and fought for years. Wooster is a farmer who raises huge crops of Ink with which to write let ters to the letter columns of the newspapers on all subjects from as tronomy to Invasions of Berlin. The fight occurred over the proposed resolution to commend the foreign policy of President Wilson. Following Is the resolution as It was In troduced and as it was finally adopted after the fight: "Resolved, That this congress com mends the foreign policy of President Wilton while standing at the head of the American nation during one of the most critical and trying periods of its history, "Resolved, That we express absolute confidence In his courage, patriotism and diplomatic ability.

Wednesday M&o 1SH. 8.101 ' "Back again! The big show la on!" Aa they say In advance of Jingling Bros., "bigger, and better than ever before!" And this time It's true. The King's Highway blossomed forth last evening in one of the most complete opening nights of all carnival history and a crowd that entered Into the featlval spirit that would do credit to the affair a week hence. This year the carnival grounds are on Fifteenth street, from Howard to Jones, and the length of King Ak-Sar-Ben's Broadway Is a blaze of lights, song, music and confetti, such as has ne'er been seen on Its expanse. Everyone appeared to be delighted with the new location, which' is 61 the heart of the hotel district, and on a level stretch. This particular seemed to strike the out-of-town visitors who hsve oome to Omaha In seasons past and are here now. For the start of the' merrymaking It is doubtful. If ever, has the carnival grounds been as well prepared for the king's sub jects. The booths - are fully decorated and manned with crews that are hep to the Job, without any practice. Some Showa There. As for the shows! La, me! Why. they're the very essence of delight. Everything from Alaska on a six by six wagon frame to the "girl In the auta." This young and beautiful woman whirls around a circular track at the rate of something over ninety-nine and seven eighths mile, an hour, standing nut l.ke the skirts on great-grandmother's hoops in operation. A ten-trie engine of speed, painted vividly, rests in front of this breath-bottling attraction, almost an ex act duplicate of the fourteen-c Under "Rearkat" In which the girl annoys pa-r ctftsts and laws of gravity.

Th great struggle on the western front has now resolved Itself clearly into a bat tle for Lens, in Pas De Calais, nlna miles northeast of Arras. The cap ture of this town, with its radiating railways, would bring Into the fore ground the possibility of retaking Lille. Both north and south of Lens, the allies hold high ground dominating the town the British 0u Hill No. 70, the French on Hill No. 140, the high crest between Souches and Vlmy. The official report from Paris last night said merely that this crest had been reached so that presumably a terrific counter attack is raging there today, with final mastery of this important position at stake. Rain, fog and so g pry ground have been hampering both the contender and limiting the activities of air craft. A few days of clar. dry weather might hare a marked effect on developments. i Offensive Thlrtr Miles Lssg. The offensive of the allies thus far haa been confined to stretches of the front amounting to lees than thirty miles In all.
