state and county engineers were in
structed to prepare estimates to be
presented Monday.
.Conflicting arguments arose be
tween business men on both sides
of the stream for fni against the
building of the bridge with the price

To Mot Old Bridge,
"The buying of the old Union Pa
cific bridge and its removal to a point
of advantage has been presented to
the new activities committee of the
Commercial club," said Chairman Wil
liams. "The old bridge is good for
thirty years yet and was built with
the aid of Douglas county when the
people voted bonds for $250,000 on
which they eventually paid $636,410.
Because ot lending this assistance we
should be given an advantageous
price by the railroad. Something
must be done with the bridge and
if we don't get it some one else will
a, a fiaro-ain.
"I would lugest that the United
' States government be appealed to and
portion of the Lincoln Memorial
fund, say '$500,000, be secured to build
the bridge. Lincoln came here with
General Dodge when looking over
nlann of the Union Pacific and it
would he a fitting' tribute to his
memory.". According to State Ensji-

Needs Long Approach.
Preliminary plans and estimates
furnished by County Engineer Lou
Adams show that the bridge must
cross twenty-seven railway tracks
and that an approach 1,100 feet long
on the Douglas county side will be
reauired.- He indorsed the state
ment of the state negineer regarding
the million-dollar cost. .' ,
"Based on the wealth. and popula
iion of the two counties,. Douglas
.'county, should pay three times as
much as Pottawattamie," said Attor
ney Young. "Council Bluffs leader!
assert that they are unable to go be
yond $2O0,Q00 in voting bonds. That
means a total of $600,000, and that is
insufficient to build the bridge pro-
i . . . i
v Robert B. Wallace of Council Bluffs
made the oDenini speech for the folks
from Pottawattamie,'' urging that
. Omaha extend the hand across 'the
Missouri to achieve mutually desir
able results. "We have decided that
$200,000 is a fair and adequate share
. for the people of our county to con-
. tribute toward the tree Bridge. AC
cording to official figures the tolls ex
tracted by the present company ex-
elusive of street car traffic during 1915
were $68,000. Think what this means
every year to the people.
Commissioners Willing.
County Commissioner Lynch said
"Douglas county commissioners are
but servants of the people. If they
will give us an expression of what
they wish done regarding the erection
of the bridge we will act favorably on
their suggestions. .
H. A. Searte. manager of the Mon
. arch Ms ufacturing company of
Council Bluffs: , "We would be spend
ing the people's money foolishly by
building the bridge while steel prices
are sky high."
' Congressman' Lobeck: "Bridge
plans must fii st be submitted to army
engineers, ine Lincoln memorial
fund is being used for the Potomac
memorial and no funds will be avail
able for other purposes."
. Other impromptu, talks were made
. by members of the commercial or
1 ganizations seeking suggestions from
engineers paving the way for the con
sideration of estimates at the meeting
ot the bridge committees Monday,

. we are not all right in our views,
though we may confidently believe
we are. The democratic party holds
, . to certain political practice diametric
ally opposite to republican practice.
We cannot both be right. Keep that
' :- fundamental fact in mind and we will
then realize that it is a matter of the
highest moment whether we choose
the right or choose the wrong.
"Now, four years ago the American
people were in the possession. of un
precedented prosperity: we were, in
the midst of the golden age. We were
just emerging after sixteen years of
republican prosperity, the greatest we
had ever enjoyed. It came under the
administration of William McKinley,
one of the greatest statesmen our
country ever produced. It continued
under the administration of Theodore
Roosevelt and William Howard Taft
There was business advancement at
home, and there was honor and high
prestige in all of the chancellories of
the world; there was no flag that was
' more revered and respected than the
Stars and Stripes of America. We
were going on in that day with tre
mendous rapidity, everywhere there
was labor for every band, food for
every mouth; we were a great, happy
nation, some ot our countrymen be
lieved that it was advisable to change
leadership in our national concerns.
We of the republican party had un-
patriotic republicans divided in their
views upon party management. Wood-
row Wilson was elected president of
the United States. It was a proud
day for democracy, but it was an tin
fortunate day for America.
"One of the first things the present
ure of Mr. Fail-bank's visit to Omaha was hi purchase of the first ticket to the carnival
grounds for the current year. Front row, left to right: Frank W. Judson, Charles L. Saun

administration did was to overturn
the republican system of protection.
This was not unexpected; it was from
the first regarded as one of the in
evitable things that democracy would
accomplish if it could. It was in power

in ine executive Drancn snu mc legis
lative branch also. Its majority was
so decisive that it was able to execute
its unbridled will. For months the
congress was held in session by the
president, wno aominaieu 11 wnn au
tocratic power. The work of demoli
tion went forward, although a major
ity of the American people had ex
pressed themselves as favoring pro
tection, it is unnecessary tor us to
go at length into the numerous sched
ules which were incorporated in their
tariff law.' Many great and many
small commodities, aggregating mil
lions and millions of dollars, were put
upon the free list, and the tariff du
ties, which were being paid by for
eigners under the republican tariff as
the price of their doing .business in
our market, were ruthlessly thrown
away. '
The authors of the law expected
that its ensctment would result in.
imimshed revenues . and they pro
vided for making up this deficiency
by imposing direct taxes .upon the
people and their business..;,
Law Starts Its Work.'
"The law promptly did its perfect
work. It began to undermine confi
dence, breed distrust, reduce the pub
lic revenue, close , factories, throw
out of employment hundreds of
thousands of wages earners, and to
stimulate the charity organizations
and increase bread lines in many cities
of the country. You will bear me
witness, my friends, thst 1 Speak the
truth: I bring no unsupported in
dictment aaainat the . democratic
party. . That great party nad us re-'
lentless grip upon the country and
the country suffered in consequence.
"In due course relief came to us,
not through democracy, but through
one of the cataclysms in the political
world t' at dimmed all that preceded
it through the ages; the foundations
of Europe trembled in the grasp of
a mighty wsr. The nations engaged
in tne conflict reacneo out to tne
United States, the one rich neutral
power, for the implements and mu
nitions required in their, bloody strug
gle. Fsctories which had been closed
by democracy and which had been
engaged in normal production turned
their energies to this new Business.
New factories of gigantic proportions
arose as if by magic and joined In
the great trade of producing war sup
plies. Our railroads, which had been
forced into idleness, were quickened
to meet new demands by the exigen
cies of Europe, breat railway trains
camei down from the cities and the
valleys to our seaports, carrying the
implements of war to be sent into
the European field. Democracy began
to tit up and take notice. It pointed
to the expanding evidences of our
prosperity. Here at last were tro
phies of the democratic policies and
democratic administration, said our
Take Undue Credit.
The fact is that the prosperity,
such as it was and is. was not af
fected in the slightest degree by the
political measures or the policies of
the flarty in power. The prosperity
? rowing out of the European war, so
at as democracy was concerned, was
purely accidental. Democratic pros
perity is due to war, while republican
prosperity grows out of the normal
and peaceful industries of the people;
it is a prosperity which abides. Demo
cratic prosperity will vanish as mist
before the morning sun. When the
articles of peace are concluded be
tween the neighboring countries
abroad and God grant that that time
may not be distant the places where
democratic prosperity has prevailed
will wear a changed aspect; the or
ders from Europe for powder, shell
and shrspnel, which have made ten
thousand hells of hurope, will cease;
the golden currents which have been
flowing hither for these weary and
tragic months will stop.

Combing Won't Rid
Hair of Dandruff
The only sure way to get rid of
dandruff is to dissolve it, then you de
stroy it entirely. To do this, get about
four ounces of ordinary liquid arvon ;
apply it at night when retiring: use
enough to moisten the scalp and rub
it in gently with the finger tips.
Do this tonight, and by morning,
most if not all, of you dandruff will
be gone, and three or lour more ap
plications will completely dissolve
and entirely destroy every single sign
and trace of it, no matter how much
dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your hair will be fluffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid arvon at any
drug store. It is inexpensive and
never fails to do the work Adv.'

Don't Let Soap
Spoil Your Hair
When you wash your hair, he care
ful what you use. Most soaps and
prepared shampoos contain too mucr
alkali, which is very injurious, as il
dries the scalp and makes the haii
brittle. .
The best thing to use is just plair
mulsified cocoanut oil, for this i:
pure and entirely greaseless. It's very
cheap, and beats the most expensive
soaps or anything else all to pieces
You can get this at any drug store
and a few ounces will last the wholt
family for months.
Simply moisten the hair with watei
and rub it in, about a teaspoonful it,
all that is required. It makes an
abundance of rich, creamy lather
cleanses thoroughly, and rinses out
easily. The hair dries quickly and
evenly, and is soft, fresh looking,
bright, fluffy, wavy and easy to
handle. Besides it loosens and takel
out every partioie of dust, dirt and
dandruff. Advertisement.
