bishops, mltered abbots and a multi
tude of laymen the first session of the
first Roman Catholic missionary con

day iu the 1st Regiment armory.
Knlrr New Kutate.
To communicants who thronged the
assembly room the occasion had added
significance from , the fact-it marks
the passing of the Roman Catholic
church in America from the position
of a mission field in equality with the
nations organized as hierarchical uni
ties in the church.
The morning session was presided
over by Archbishop Quigley of Chi
cago and was devoted to foreign mis
l'op .". Year I'rlext.
Rome, Nov. 1C. Pontifical mass was
celebrated this morning at St. Peter's
by the pope on the occasion of the
5th anniversary of his joining the
piiesthood. It was the most imposing
ceremony witnessed in Rome since
the coronation of the pontiff.
There were present not less than
70,000 of the faithful, who had come
to Rome from all parts of the world
Special Tribune Krecteri.
A tribune has been erected only for
the pope's sisters, members of the
royal family, diplomatic corps and
special missions sent by the heads of
states. The rest of the people were
admitted by ticket.
The basilica was radient with thou
sands of electric lights and candles.
The papal procession was most mag
nificent and brought together a large
variety of rich and costlf costumes
The bishops were clad in purple and
the cardinals in red.
Iupe'M Chair Above All.
Above the heads of the high church
dignitaries rose the papal cnair upon
which the pontiff, dressed almost en
tirely in white, was seated. The chair
was flanked by the famous feather
fans and as the pope progressed he
Imparted his blessing to the kneeling
crowds. There were 34 cardinals and
36 bishops in the procession.
Received at Entrance.
Cardinal Sampolla, arch priest of St.
Peter's, received the pope at the en
trance of the basilica. The choir of
the Sistlne chapel rendered music,
which was most beautiful. The pope
celebrated mass at the high altar
standing above the shine of St. Peter.
At the conclusion of the mass he im
parted his solemn benediction to the
vast congregation. It was an impres

portals of St. Peter's was deeply touch

Judge Bollinger Decides Absence
Date on Mulct Petitions Ren
ders It Invalid.
Judge Bollinger Saturday afternoon
passed upon the Muscatine mulct pe
tition, after having it under advise
ment more than seven weeks. Because
of the absence of date with 596 names
he finds the petition insufficient. His
ruling reverses the decision of the
board of supervisors, who found the
petition sufficient. On the strength of
the finding of the supervisors Musca
tine's city council recently granted
permission to sell liquor to 11 saloon
keepers thus raising the lid that had
been on since last winter. Judge Bol
linger's ruling means the petition was
never valid and the saloons have not
been operating under the law.

One "day last week the members of
the fire department went down to the
west end of the city and set fire to a
tract of weeds and rushes which from
their proximity to the industrial plants
were considered a menace and likely
to be the means of starting a serious
conflagration. The firemen had a line
of hose strung as a precaution and
there was no chanco Tor their fixe to
do damage to the buildings. But the
wind was stronger than they had sap
posed and in a few minutes tbe fire
had been carried out of reach into a
field of hay and rushes. Several
stacks of fodder and rushes intended
as bedding for cattle were destroyed
and now the owner of the field claims
damages and threatens to take the
matter before the city officials if the
firemen do not settle with him from
their private purses. . The incident
may be the cause of some very inter
esting litigation. The firemen claim
that they were doing all the owners
of property in that section of the city
service in setting the weeds afire
themselves and that the damage,
which was small in comparison with
the possible damage under other con
ditions, should be charged off as an
investment for improved fire protec

A hole 14 by 14 inches had been
electrically drilled through the 14-inch
fire-proof wall, forming one side of the
postoffice vault, through which one of
the robbers had entered the vault and
passed the plunder to his confederates.
That the robbery was committed by ex

prevent discovery and that the men
worked so skillfully that the nignt
force of mailing clerks within 100 feet
of the vault had no knowledge of what
was taking place.

various party managers have figured
out just how the election vent on the

attention to an analysis of the vf ta

the most interesting features in this
connection is the statement of Eugene

home the other night, said that the
prohibition movement on Nov. 3 re

That the prohibition movement
made no headway, as Mr. Chafin inti
mates, is borne out by an analysis of
the votes in the various states. The
storm center of the prohibitionists
fight in the election was in Indiana,
Ohio, Illinois, South Dakota, Rhode
Iflteid, Minnesota and Tennessee. In
each of these states the prohibition
ists were , defeated and a number of
well, known candidates who cham

' Hanly, however, was' not satisfied and

the passage of a county option law.
In this step he was ably assisted by
the republican nominee for governor.

Linen Shnrpljr Drawn.
In Ohio, the birthplace of the Anti
Saloon league, the lines between the
prohibitionists and the liberals were
snarpiy drawn. Tne anti-saioon ele
ment championed the cause of Gov
ernor Harris, candidate for reelection
Harris had been prominent during his
administration as an advocate of p.o
hibition and had obtained ihe passage
of the Rose county option law by the
legislature. In the campaign, he was
opposed by Judson Harmon, the demo
cratic candidate, who was supported
by the more liberal voters of the state.
The result was that Ohio gave Taft
65,000 plurality, but in spite of this
sweeping republican victory, the re
publican candidate on a prohibition
platform went down in defeat and his
democratic opponent was elected by
over 20,000. State Senators Ro.ce,
Sites, Meek and Drake, who were lieu
tenants of Harris in his anti-saloon
campaign, also were defeated. Rose
was the father of the county option
law and Drake the chairman of the
committee of the legislature having
charge of all temperance legislation.
In Illinois the anti-saloon people
centered their fight in an effort to cap
ture the legislation lor county option.
Returns show that they were over
whelmingly defeated, 75 per cent of
the members elected to the senate and
house being opposed to county option.

In South Dakota, the question of
county option was squarely presented
to the people of the entire state under
the initiative and referendum. The
prohibitionists and the anti-saloon
leaguers had joint headquarters and
made a vigorous fight. County option
was defeated by 7,000. The defeat
of the question is more decisive in
South Dakota because it is a purely
agricultural state and in recent years
had experience in state prohibition.
