Managers of Boyal Neighbors
Stop Distribution of Miss
7,000 COPIES ARE PRINTED
Ordered to Hold Ttiem Until Given
Farther Instructions by the
The board of managers of the Royal
Neighbors this morning 'issued OTders
that will prevent the distribution of
the trl-ennial report of Miss Myrtle
E. Dade, supreme Tecorder, this ac
tion being taken despite the fact that
at the recent head camp meeting la
Denver, the convention received the
report, thanked Miss Dade with a ris
ing vote, fend instructed her to pro
ceed with the printing of the report
so that it might be circulated among
the membership. Prior to the con
vention the managers had stopped the
printing of the report and now that
It is for the most part In print, the
printers were given orders not to de
liver the report to the head office un
til given further orders to that effect.
When Miss Dade was Informed that
the 7,000 copies of her report which
are now ready, would not be delivered
to her she was Indignant. She said:
"It means that If the report Is not sent
out, the membership will be prevented
from reading the report of the Insur
ance commission which after an In
vestigation of the society criticized to
some extent the board of managers
and made other suggestions and criti
clsms which It Is the privilege of the
members of the society to know.
JOB COSTS S3.000.
"It will also detail a financial loss
of some $3,000 which was spent under
the direction of the head camp in
having the report printed. The print
ers' bill has been allowed and unless
I should refuse to sign the check the
bill will be paid and the reports turn
ed Into so much waste paper. The or
der of the board Is unjust, both to tb-3
membership of the society and to my
self, but I suppose there is nothing
for me to do but accept "It." i

REVIVAL OF RIVER
TRAFFIC IS NOTED
Arrival of Morning Star at
New Orleans Suggests
DIXIE PAPER COMMENTS
Predicted That fn Time Water Trans
portation Activities Will Be
The New Orleans, La,) Picayune
of May 14 printed the following edi
torial anent the arrival of Captain
Blair and his party in the Crescent
The arrival here of the steamer
Morning Star, after a 1,600-mile trip
from Davenport, Iowa, la a significant
event, even though the purpose of the
long Toyage was merely to carry a
large party of excursionists and sight
seers. The trip of a single large steam
boat from Davenport to New Orleans
is not a particularly difficult under
taking at this stage of water in the
river, but it appears that Is the first
time that such a continuous voyage
has actually been made. It serves to
recall the fact that despite the compar
atively little use that has been ma.Ce
of the great river In recent years It
affords the means of water communi
cation from the northern boundary of
the country to the Gulf of Mexico.
Men still comparatively young re
member the time when regular JInes
of steamers plied between this city
and SL Louis, and also to Cincinnati,
as well as to hundreds of other points
on the Mississippi river and its tribu
taries. PERMITTED TO DECAY.
There was also steamboat traffic to
the upper headwaters of the Missouri,
to Pittsburg and the upper Ohio and
to many other distant points that no
steamboat now ever visits. That this
immense traffic should have been per
mitted to decay and practically disap
pear Is not creditable to our thrift and
foresight. To such an extent have tliej
railroads displaced water transporta
tion on our western rivers that a large
sidewheel steamboat of the type of the
Morning Star is now quite a novelty,
where formerly hundreds of larger
and finer boats traversed the rivers
in every direction.
The fact that a steamboat has made
the longr trip from Davenport to this
city serves to recall the fact that It
may some day be possible to revlve'i
the river traffic, if not along the old
lines, at least along lines more In
keeping with modern conditions.
There is no finer excursion trip in the
world than a voyage from here
to St Louis and from that point to St.
SURRENDER TO RAILROADS,
There is an immense traffic be
tween the two points that the river
should handle in competition with the
railroads, but which is tow surrender
ed entirely to the latter. It is im
possible to suppose that this must al
ways continue and that our magnifi
cent system of navigable streams
must be unutilized. Such a thing
would be possible in no other country,
and it would be impossible with us
were ' we not proverbialy indifferent
to the future and its possibilities and
eager only to secure Immediate prof
its. Interest In river transportation Is,
however, not altogether dead, and the
spasmodic efforts that are made from
time to time to revive it hold out the
hope that in time steamboats will
again be common on all our western
streams and that they will secure
their Just share of the immense traf
fic of the Mississippi valley.
