'CLUB WILL JEND METGALF
iHcad of Commercial Body to Make
Tour of Europe.
Opportunity to lie Given to Inspect
Commercial Life of Continent
and Dm it Vnlueil Infor
At the noon meetlnir nt Iho rVmnr-ll
iBluffa Commercial club held yesterday.
th decision was reached to send Thomas
X. Metcolf, president of the club, to
Europe as the Council Bluffs represent-
Etlv, In the company fifty delegates who
will make the tour under the auspices of
the American Civic association of Boston,
a, national commercial organization,
.which has undertaken the task of obtain
ing entree for wide awuke bushiest) Wn
Into the Inner circles of European trade
centers, something heretofore Impossible.
The trip will last two months and tho
tectlro cost, $750, has been subscribed by
ceveral Council Bluffs men.
The matter was brought to tho atten
tion of the club two weeks ago when an
(officer of the clvlo association called
i.Upon Secretary Towne to renew an old
Acquaintance. lie became tho guest of
;the executive committee "of the club at
ainnor-and took advantage of tho oppor
tunity to lay the whole matter before
'the club. It appeared to bo so Important
that two of the club members offered
Ithe nto furnish $200 of the transportation
(cost for the use of a Council Bluffs
felnco then the remainder of tho amount
flias ben subscribed. The matter came as
lia complete surprise to Mr. Metcolf yes-
ltorday when by a unanimous vote of the
committee members he was chosen as the
.fclty and club's representative. Ills only
personal expense will be for incidentals
fas the $760 paid to the Civic association
flakes care of all transportation and hotel
jlls for the entire trip. The party is
limited to fifty members, and Council
UBluffs will hnyo the distinction of being
the smallest city represented. The party
vill sail about July 1 and returning will
Efcoach New York about August 30.
t , To VUlt 1IK - Cities.
All of the great commercial and manu
facturing centers of Europe will be
visited, and the visitors will have the ad-
tv&ntago of seeing thlngs from the Inside,
the viewpoint of tho seller, and learn
lrihsr methods of doing the world's busi
ness. The fifty members of the party
rwlll represent all of the great cities of
thctlnlted States, and Minneapolis will be
the second smallest city to bo represented.
Chicago and New York will be the only
two cities to be represented by more than
or(e delegate. It will be a wprklng cro.wd
of wido awake Yankees, bent upon
setting Information that can be turned
to profitable advantage. There will be no
Blghtseeing and 'pleasure stunts at any
Btage, for the program outlined provides
duties for about every hour of the day
and many of the evenings.
Heretofore it has ben well nigh im
possible for American manufacturers and
business men to got a chance to study
trado conditions from the most favorable
point. The members of the National
Civic association will be accorded full
opportunity to ulo this and will have ad
vantages that are denied consular agents
of the government. President Metcolf
will have ample opportunity-' to." gather
materials that" should constitute an In
teresting report when he returns.
It Is expected that he will write weekly
letters that will bo offered to the local
newspapers for publication.
BISHOP IS FOR BILLY SUNDAY
(Continued from Pure One.)
blame with the pastor of the church. At
least Billy Isn't to blame. He did !s
part when he brought them to Christ.
Dnckullitera Are tvW.
"And even then there aren't nearly so
many backsliders as Sunday's enemies
try to make out. I was down In Wichita
a year ago, at the time when he was
conducting a series of meetings there.
He was gettnng men doctors, lawyers,
men from all professions to accept
Christ. They went In teams. In one
bunch of converts there were 263 men.
How many of the 262 were backsliders do
you think? Just two. The rest are
still staunch, night there you find one
of Billy's best attributes. The men he
reached aren't all bummers and down-and-outers.
He'll get people out of the
best families of the cities. Ills sermons
reach out and get men and women that
no one else could touch.
Ilntile to Hurt Some One.
"Of course he'll say same pretty harsb
things at first. The people will think
them harsh anyway. But watch the next
night. They'll be right back In the front
row for more and so it will continue un
til he has theiri converted.
"It makes me mad when I hear people
grouching about the money Sunday gets
calling him a grafter and -what not.
He doesn't ask anyone to give htm a
cent. The offering Is a free will offering.
If a person wants to donate that's his
or her own business. Arid they generally,
donate, too, for Billy certainly gets the
"There are mighty few people who
know it, but when Sunday was back In
Qalesburg which, by the way, went dry
because of him he went around to sev
eral destitute families and with money
from his own pockets lifted mortgages
und helped In other ways. A large share
of the money he gets goes for benefic
ence. "Yes, slr, I'm for Billy. You can't
make that too strong."
A committee will leave Monday for
South Bend, Ind., to endeavor to get Billy
Sunday to come to Omaha.
Queen of May Chosen
by U. ofO. Students
Miss Lottie Underhill Is the choice of
the students of the University of Omaah
for the Queen of May, to be crowned In
connection with the gala day festivities
at the university Friday evening. The
announcement comes aa a result of se
lection made by the entire student body
of the university. Each student was en
titled to cast one vote for his choice for
May queen, voting Monday and Tuesday.
There were no nominations for the place.
The committee having this matter in
hand laid down the rule that each should
vote for a girl whb was a member of
either the senior or Junior class; other
than this there were no Instructions.
Miss Underhill Is a member of the
junior class nnd has been one of the most
popular young ladles at the Institution.
Phe has all the characteristics which con
tribute to queenly bearing tall, dark and
Miss, Katherlne Mathles, a member of
tho senior class, will act as maid of
honor at tho coronation. Tho fete Is tho
most spectacular of the year and is ac
companied with May pole dances, pomp
and splendor. Sixteen girls of the school
will participate In the May pole dance.
There will be four little pages and twrf
flower girls. The Installation will be on
the campus at 7:15 and Is open to the
Vibrating Pavements May
Disrupt the Police Force
Another sensation In the police depart
ment! Unless something happens to the
creosote block paving on South Six
teenth street, p. d. quick, several of the
officers on traffto detail near the more
congested parts, may be compelled to
ask for a transfer to other duties. And
Word of their complaint having been
passed around the department. Lieutenant
Hayes, In charge of the traffto detail,
may have a hard time in recruiting mem
bers for his sqaud.
In some manner, the creosote blocks
are ntfected by vibration of street car
rail enured by the heavy cars. The
vibration tickles the officers' feet, and
as they have to stay In one place nearly
twelve hours, life Is one continuous gig
gle for them. One policeman has become
so proficient in the giggle art that a
high school sorority and asked him to be
come worthy patron or something.
It is said that small feet are tickled
Just as easily as big ones, although there
seems to be no ono In the police depart
ment that can prove this assertion of his
"It would be all right if the tickle pro
duces a happy smile," walled "Big Bill"
Smith at Sixteenth and Farnam streets.
"But the silly tickle produces an asinine
look and an Inward "Jlggly" feeling that
makes mo hiccough."
Another traffic officer said: "The silly
giggle ain't the worst part, either. Tho
lieutenant came along the other day and
gave me a dressing because, my shoes
were not shlncd bright enough. The
pavement shook Just then and I giggled
like a school girl and nearly got sus;
pended. The "loot" thought I was laugh
ing in his face."
Still another officer, in denouncing the
devilish tickle, told a Bee reporter that
he has laughed so much since he has
been on traffic duty that he has gained
over forty pounds. This officer Is none
other than Hod Corneau, tho man who
had the misfortune the other day to be
mistaken for a truck horse.
If the pavement cannot be fixed, there
seems to be only ono solution of tho
problem: Let all of tho pessimists on
the department be detailed for traffic
duty. Within a week tho sourest mem
ber of Chief Dunn's family will bo com
pletely cured, or even more will become
the happiest optimist In Omaha Dunn,
himself, not excepted. But whether the
officers can be Induced to accept optim
ism at the price of continuous tickling,
Is a mooted question.

Over Bluffs Streets
' A rainstorm of the proportions of a
cloudburst deluged Council Bluffs and
Vicinity Monday morning. The rain
Was mingled with fine hall, but owing
to the entire absence of wind and the
Emallntss of the missiles no damage was
Jlone to fruit or growing crops.
Rtorm Bowers were Insufficient to carry
away the water and many of tho streets
Were flooded above tne cum nne. iuw

jMaln street district, where a large area
'was under water to the depth of several
Inches for a few hours. The water crept

Bluff City laundry on North Main, where
serious damage would have been in
flicted upon JIO.OOO worth of fine ma

plant. Harrison and Benton streets
"'flowed curb full, carrying plenty of mud
and debris from the large hillside terri
tory drained by thoso thoroughfares.
Tho street car extension work on North
Harrison escaped with little Injury. The j
new track is being ballasted with cln-1
Bers and In several places the ballast j
was out away, and required several car-
loads to replace the material washed, out.
A large number of ties left on the upper
portion of the street floated away, many
ot them reaching Indian creek to start
n their Journey to the Gulf of Mexico.
Reports from the territory lylrfg north
of the city, especially In the vicinity of
Crescent, Indicated a much heavier rain
and hailstorm. The fine hall accumu
lated In places to a depth of several
Inches, and more than 2 Inches of rain

In the central and eastern part of the
county the hall was much larger am.
the rainfall was greater. Chairman Chil
