[ssi THE BISMARCK TRIBUNf \Wmm\
ESTABLISHED 1873 — ■ . rnibci riTfi LdN io REPORT PRESIDENT IMPROVED A. W. LUCAS IS ' LAID TO REST WITH TRIBUTE / City Auditorium Is Filled with Sorrowing Townsmen Paying Their Tribute E.ULOGY IS DELIVERED Deceased Had Accomplished Great Good in His Life, Mr. Cameron Said Arthur W. Lucas, one of Bis marck's foremost citizens, was laid to rest yesterday afternoon in St. Mary s cemetery after one of the most im pressive tributes ever paid the mem ory of a citizen of the city. Nearly 2,000 people joined in the solemn services conducted in tne City Audi torium in honor of the deceased, who passed away in a hotel in Chicago Friday night. Business was suspended in the city during the services in ac cordance with Mayor Lenhart’s pro clamation. Services were in charge of the Elk* lodge, of which Mr. Lucas was an ac tive member. Just before 2:30 o’clock a solomh procession headed by the Elks Land with members of the lodge escorting thv» body, moved from the undertaking parlors to the auditorium, the band playing a fun eral dirge a& the procession wound its way through the streets of tht city which Mr. Lucas had served so long in official capacity. Pall-bear *'■ ers were S. W. Derrick, E. A. Hughes, William O’Hara, Dr. M. W. Roan, P. R. Fields and H. T. Murphy. The bier was heaped with floral tributes from organizations, em loyes, relatives and friends, and the whole platform of the auditorium contained the many floral offerings which came from within and without the city. Members of the Elks lodge marched into the Auditorium in a body and remained standing until Alex Rosen, exalted ruler of Bis marck lodge No. 1199, bade them be seated. The Auditorium upstairs and down, was filled with people, all of whom had at one time or another s known the smiling greeting of Mr. Lucas. Elks Give Service. / Mr. Rosen presided at the ritual* istic service which' was conducted, with members in the chairs of the lodge as follows: Esteemed Lead ing Knight, Robert Webb; Esteemed Loyul Knight, George W. Mann; Es teemed Lecturing Knight, A. P. Len hart; Chaplain, I. C. Davies; Esquire, J. L. Kelley. L. K. Thompson, secre tary of the lodge called the oam? of the absent brother. Members of the city commission ocupied seats on the . platform. Scott Camerpn, delivering the eulogy, paid a fine tribute to the life , and work of Mr. Lucas. Although he ’ had not lived the expected * three score and ten, he had in the time alloted him on earth by the Creator accomplished far more than moat of us could hope to accomplish if we lived far beyond his age, Mr. Cam eron said. He reviewed the rise of Mr. Lucas to a successful business 'yman through his own efforts, his unfailing interest in the welfare of his community and his whole-souled generosity. Praised for Civic Interest. Much of the praise that is bestow ed upon the city of- hismarck as a beautiful city may be traced to Mr. Lucas’ work as a memoer and presi dent of, the city comihission, Mr. Cameron said. He referred to the « paving program as one of the ac complishments of the deceased. Though Mr. Lucas mult have suf i fered the vicissitudes which affect f everyone, yet he always kept such troubles to himself and presented to his friends and acquaintances a hearty smile and cheery word ot greeting. Mr. Lucas, he said, was generous to a fault—no worthy char ity had .ever been brought to his at* tention that he was hot willing to aid, even beyond the measure of his ability, and no good cause ever arose that he did. not willingly seek to do more than his part to further it. The respect tfnd admiration of his employes itself was a tribute of which any man might well be proud, he said. ' ’ Lost Good Citizen . Bismarck, Mr. Cameron said, had lost one of its first cilszens. In the time of bereavement of members of the family and the sorrowings of friends, the only consolation that might he offered, he eaid, was that in his span, of life the deceased had done so much for the good of ■'f -' others and had well earned the judg ment of “Well Done, Thai* Good and Faithful Servant.” As the concluding part of the Elks ritual officers of the lodge passed the bier, eaab testifying to the sterl ing qualities of the deceased and dropping on it bits of amaranth and *•' ivy, twin symbols of their tribute. Mrs. John A. Graham sang sweetly “One Sweetly Solemn Thought” and “Abide With Me,” with Mrs. Arthur Bauer as accompanist, and Henry Halverson sang “Our Absent Broth er.” A long cavalcade of automobiles moved slowly from the city audi torium and wound up the slopes of the road leading into the silent efty on the hill, St. Mary's cemetery, and paused at the catafalque heaped trith flowers and surrounded by reverent mWurners. While e stressing wind flung itself across tho hill-top and a J benignant sun paused' behind hasy (Continued on Page Three} HI JOHNSON BACK FOR THE FRAY | Hirain Johnson, California senator, as he stepped ashore from the Leviathan in New York where a great demonstration was held for him as a possible candidate for the presidency.

NESTOS URGES CONGRESS TO TAKE ACTION info* «!*;.> J Believer <Spec 1a 1 Session Should be Called to Fix Minimum,Pric£ on Wheat •tr GIVES SITUAtION VIEWS Conceded That Agriculture Is in Need of Stimulus, Gov ernor Says Belief that President Harding should call a special session of Con* gres i which might accomplish good for the Northwest is expressed by Governor R. A. Nestos of North Da* kota in a letter to the nation’s chief j I executive. Governor Nestos favors fixing of a minimum price on wheat. In a statement issued today upon inquiry as to Whether or not he would attend a price-fixing meeting called at Lidgerwood, Governor Neh tos said: “It is conceded by everybody that agriculture is our fundamental in dustry and that any seeming prosper. 1 ity which has come to our industrial | and economic life generally, cannot last where it is accompanied by a bankrupt condition of our American' farmers. Unless a reasonable mea sure of prosperity also becomes the lot of the farmer and thus restores! his purchasing power, the closing of our factories, . lack of employment for labor, and the failure of industry is inevitable and the crash will be an appnlling one. “It is. also conceded that the con dition of our agricuhjre, and more especially of our wheat raisers, is most deplorable and that unless some effective relief can be brought with out delay, disaster to our economic structure must result. But while this is conceded, there seems to have been a disposition, aside from the granting of improved forms of credit, to view the situation helplessly and merely to hope that something will ] just happen to restore the prosperity ] of the farmer, and to claim that nothing can be done by legislation to ' give him a price for his product that i will pay the farmer reasonable wages for his labor and a fair return on ij his Investment. Yet, it is becoming more and more apparent, it seems to 1 me, that if we nre going to wait un til prosperity' is restored by the working o6t of economic laws alone, * without legislative aid, that hundreds < of thousands of our farmers will be forced into bankruptcy and driven .’] from their lands with great injustice to them and a great loss to our na- ! tional economic life. ' “It seems to m« that if congress were called in extra session that it should be possible to work out some solution of this problem that would gjve the farmer, without delay, such pncd fey "his wheat as would make it possible to bridge over the gap until improved economic conditions should restore the purchasing power of the farmer’s dollar. Of course, 1 also realize that we want to be sure that the legislation enacted will real ly help and not hinder real progress. There is always a danger that in our efforts to help we may sometimes imitate the Irishman who, when a (Continued on Page Three) HRS. HARDING, AS NURSE, ASSUMES . BURDENS OF PRESIDENTS SICE-ROOM San Francisco, July 31.—Mrs. jWar ren G.

She insisted upon mak ing the tour with her husband des pite the fact that she had recovered but' a short time from a serious' illness and was judged by some as being as that time in a condi tion where the hardships of the road might prove disastrous, re sulting possibly in a recurrence of the illness from which she, recently had goffered. / The journey across the continent* was completed.

He took some nourishment this morning and read the papers, it was also learned. MUCH IMPROVED Presidential Headquarters, Palace Hotel, San Francisco, July 31.—President Harding was so far refreshed by a sleep that lasted more than six hours last night that he said he felt able to look at the news of the day and sent oift to see the morning papers all of which were devoted largely to his illness.

Two days of rest, how ever, dissipated the fatigue and Boon Mrs. Harding had entirely re gained her strength and again went cheerfully onward, receiving visitors and taking the first lady’s role in a vigorous way wherever the chief ex ecutive stopped.
