The delegation present. some 320o. met at to:jo a. mn. at the new Williatd hotel on the toth floor which has a capacity of seating 5,uoo people.

Hon. Champ Clark of Missouri was the next congressman called upon. He stated that for a3 years he has been in favor of the improvement of the waterways, that he knew what it wsuld mean for the people: and he emphasized the fact that any pro posed 'project that ignored the improve meet of the Missouri river would not go. Prominent men from Canada and South America were present and spoke favorably for a feasible plan to uring about the mat ter. Andrew Carnagie was present and expressed himself in favor of the scheme. After reviewing the dascussions of the various speakes, the sint and sub stance of the whole matter resolved itself into this: We, as A nation, must work for accomplishment of the proposed project. We most empluy the best and most como petent engineer in the land to take charge of the prehiminary work Hie must have competent assistants to help him.

The law requires that the amount of chloroform, opium, morphine, and other habit formsng drugs be stated on the label of each bottle. The manufactur. ers of Chamberlain's Cough Remsly have always claimed that their reamedy did not I contain any of these drugs, and the truth of this claim as now fully proven, as no maention of them is made an the latal.
