The conference will open on Wednes
day, Sept. 9, and will probably close the
following Monday. It had been ar
ranged to bold a reception for the visit

8, but this has been abandoned on account
of the Davenport carnival, which occurs
on that evening, and which will be a
spectacle that a large number of the visi

Bishop R. W. Joyce, of Cbattanooga,
will preside. The conference will open
at 8:30 Wednesday morning with a com
munion service, followed at 9 o'clock "by

The Union, as was to be expected, flies
to the defense of the oppositionists to the
government surveys and in an attempted
defense of the position of those who are
now fighting the government H devotes
itself to sneering at the engineers -in
charge of the work, at the congressman
from this district, and finally endeav
ors to excuse the delay which the
friends of the northern route have caused,
and are likely to cause to the extent of
endangering the entire project, by say
ng that Capt. Marshall, in his re
port to the war department for July,
before there was any commission,
said: "No werk is contemplated
farther than the completion of some maps
and assisting the U. S. district attorney in
securing edditioaal information concurr
ing the titles to lands required for the ap
proved route." Now the question is
how cau the war department go ahead

as long a) war is being wsgert on tbat

Mother Who Didn't Know Her Boy
New York, Aug. 29. One of the most
mysterious of Coney Islaud's myateriea is
the d.sappearance of a man and young
woman who were bathing at Palmer's pa
vilion orr Thursday evening. The disap
pearance was discovered at b o'elock.when
the pavilion was being closed up for the
night. An employe in the men's part of
the pavilion found one of the bath houses
locked. The door was forced open and a
man's clothes were found. Shortly after
ward a bathhouse in the women's part
was found locked. - This also was foreed
open and a woman's clothing found.
Doubts of a Drowning Affair.
The employes did not remember the
man. Mrs. Thompson, who has charge of
the women's sect-on, has but a slight rec
ollection of the woman. The clothing
worn by each was of very ordinary quali
ty. In the matr's pockets were found a
gold watch and chain ami a little money.
A tortoise shell hair comb, a purse con
taining 90 cents, and a patr of silk mittens
were found in the pocket of the womnp's
dress. The police are inclined to doubt
that the missing persons were drowned.
One theory is that the couple eloped. It
is supposed by some that they lei t their
clothes in the bath pavilion and had oth
ers at some convenient place.
