It Is Now Ex
TO GET WATER SERVICE
Mayor Moorhead State* City Will
See That Water Mains
Are Extended to
Active work on the extension of
the street car line through the new
McKlnley avenue district will be
started tomorrow morning. It Is ex
pected officials of the street car
company that the new line will be
ready for operation within three
weeks or a month. Assurances have
leen given, also, by Mayor Moorhead
that the water mains will be extended
into this district according to the
agreement made between the Interest
ed parties last spring. If the water
works company continues to refuse
to extend the mains the work will be
done by the city and the expense de
ducted from the monthly water I'm*
paid by the city to the company.
Superintendent Ingle stated yester
day that most of the material for the
extension of the car line already was
on the ground. The poles for the
wires were hauled out along the pro
posed line yesterday and will be
placed by workmen of the company
who will start tomorrow to do this
The contract for excavating the
street for the rock foundation of the
track has been let to James Cameron
and his men also will start work to
morrow. 1,500 ties, 0,000 feet of rails,
75 poles, and 3,000 feet of wire will be
used in the extension.
*N* Reply Y*t.
No reply has yet been received from
l-resldent Hoflmaster of the water
company. In answer to the let
ter of Commissioner Collins, publish
ed recently', in which Commissioner
Collins urged the official of the com
pany to reconsider his decision not
to extend the water mains. The rea
son for Mr. Hoffmaster's decision was
that It would be Impossible to market
bonds to cover the cost of the.work
on account of the present financial
stringency Induced by the European
The cost of extending the mains
would amount to a little over $2,000.
If the work Is done by the city it Is
planned to deduct from the monthly
payment to the water works company
about $500 until the cost of the work
has been covered.
The council yesterday authorized
the clerk to draw a warrant for $1,050
for the payment of interest on the

Y. M.C.A. ITEMS
It will be remembered that Y. M.
C. A. boys returned recently from
their camp, situated just this aide of
N'auvoo, on the Illinois side with a
splendid view overlooking the Missis
sippi river, which afforded them a re
freshing and healthful bathing place,
during the heated term in which they
enjoyed themselves as no lads ever
enjoyed themselves 'better. The Trlme
factors in establishing the c«nij was
good wholesome fun and1 the training,
of character, and of the former there
was an abundance and the week's so
journ out amid the invigorating play
places of nature, a splendid natural
wood, where character is formed. The
boys are even to this time reciting
the adventures of that glorious camp
ing time. A jolly camp without a
song is like a college without a yell.
The boys at Camp Sheridan had
variety of yells that resounded along
the bluff and slurried down the river
bed and went musically meantferlijg
down its ribbony bosom. But the song
from the partially trained" chorus of
boy voices was sung with a spirit and
enthusiasm which would attract the
attention and give a thoughtful Inspi
ration to the most callous Individual.
Its memory should be perpetuated and
for that purpose 1* given below. The
words of "Camp Sheridan Song," as
it was named by the 'boys, were hast
ily written by Donald StrtCkler, on*
of the boy campers, adapted to the
tune of "My Harem." Below are. the

United Pre** Association Telegraph Market Report Ov*r
[United Press Leased Wire Service.]
CHICAGO, Aug. 29.—Wheat gained
7% to 7% this week, bringing the
total advance since the beginning of
the world war to more than 30 cents.
Early In the week, there was a re
action against the high prices of the
week before. New traders, however,
took hold of the market and ran
prices up in startling fashion until
September on Thursday reached $1.12
and May $1.25. The regular traders
did not join in this furore and prices
fell sharply the following day, but
the indications that the struggle In
Europe will continue many months
overshadowed any bear feature. The
close today found September $1.07,
December $1.11% and May $118%.
Corn gained 1% to 1% for the de
ferred months but only a shade for
September during the week. The
market was indebted to the bullish
movement In wheat for the advance,
tood rains over the corn belt acting
as a bearish factor.
Good export demand for oats,
coupled with the sharp advance in
wheat, boosted oats futures 2% to
Z% during the week. The domestic
de.nand continued good.
Pork dropped $1.90 for the week,
chiefly because hog receipts at the
stock yards were heavier and prices
lower. Lard and short ribs lost 7 to
