The. great world atniggle, which we might reasonably designate the civil war of western civilization and in which we o creditably and help fully participated, left peoples and nationa prostrate, hardly knowing which way to turn for restoration. I cannot help but believe that some thing of the spirit with which Grant welcomed victory, something of his eager neis to return to peaceful ways, would have speeded the restoration and hastened the return to prosperity and happiness, without which there can be no abiding peace."

Street car service was restored this morning- to all flooded suburbs. The dead and missing list is now 49. Search for the 60 or more reported dead or missing in Fort Worth, as a result of the flood and reconstruct tion work, took the lead in the situa tion here today. Three persons are in the list of known dead, their bodies having been recovered. They were: W.-C. . Gentry, 25; Mrs. G. W. Pettis, 50, and a Mrs, Ferguson. Reports of 'missing persons and others seen to drown added to the list last night. Belief that the crest had - passed was expressed by omcia Is early-to day after a decided drop was noted last night in both the Trinity rrvef and in Clear Fork creek. A guard has been placed on the levee protecting property in the. Van Zandt addition. It was feared an attempt might be made to weaken the levee to relieve the pressure of water from up the Clear Fork creek. Residents of the flooded areas were not permitted to return to their homes last night.

By DON ENFIELD. ft esalaila ( afTia4al Oaaaaa Am, Washington, April 27. (Special Telegram.) Representative Jrfferis will introduce in the house tomor row a pill providing tnat seeds shipped into any slate from outside shall be subject to the operation of pure seed laws prevailing within that state. The legislation would impose on any dealer violating v its terms a fine of $500, the same to be recov ered at the suit of the I'nited States in any federal court having juris diction. The Omaha representative prepared the measure following cor tespondenre with II. D. Lute, sec retary of the Nebraska 1 arm Uureau federation. "The purpo!e of the bill, sayV Mr. Jcflcrw, "is to insure to the farmers and producers of Nebraska and other states seed which wilt pass the test. It seems only right that seed houses outside our state be made to comply with the same requirements as are the seed com panies doing business in Nebraska. We have a seed test law and a state bureau of inspection, but . exiting laws do not seem to make it possible for state authorities to prevent ship ments of inferior seed from seed houses in other states, who carry, on rateittitt advertising canipa'gna and si ii.
