The speaker pointed out Iowa City, half the size of Ot tumwa, with an interurban, Cedar Rapids with two electric lines, Des Moines with its ICO miles of interurban and Waterloo with Its interurban lines. He stated that the interurban roads #ere prosperous and tnat these cities bad received great benefit froin them. He declared that the survey of the Ot tumwarlowa City interurban passed through the most fertile country in the United States. "Scarcely another section in tne country," said the speaker, is richer, and no farmers are more progressive br land more fertile then in this Btretch of country through which the road will pass. He declared that the people along the line of the road were without rr.ilroad facilities and pointed out the great- benefits it would be to them, as well as the effect it would have of drawing trade from the rural communities to Ottumwa and Iowa City "This country which the road w: l'cross," said Mr. Foster, "raises large quantities of grain, thousands of head of cattle and thousands of oounds of farm produce and these peo ple want a market for their goods which they cannot reach at this time because of the poor ranroad service. He declared that there was never an Interurban read built where the pro spects were as bright as the Ottumwa Iowa City line. Ottumwa Must Subscribe. Mr Foster said that Ottumwa was only reauired to raise $100,000, which was a small sum for a city of 25,000, when the benefits to be derived from this small subscription would be a hundred fold. One of the troubles Ottumwa, he pointed out, is that Ot tumwa people hold on too tightly to their purse strings, and if Ottumwa is to continue to forge to the front as the most progressive city in the state the people will have to loosen up. "The people of Ottumwa," said he, 'should form the habit of subscribing to pro jects which would help the city and oause it to advance as a progressive community." He urged that the peo ple take hold of the project to raise the $100,000 for the road between Ot tumwa and.Iowa City and said there should be no opposition from the peo ple of the city. "If Ottumwa is to Seep ahead in the race," he said, 'the people will have to subscribe and lere is one of the best investments :hat they can subscribe to. It will be worth millions of dollars to the city In coming years." Brant Tells of Benefits/ David Brant, the veteran editor of ihe Iowa City Republican and one of fowa City's most active boosters, was the next speaker. In opening his ad Jress he said that the people of Ot tumwa ought to be proud of the Fifty fourth regiment band, which had furnished the music for the evening. He lauded the members of the band as gentlemen and musicians and he de- Iared that they had highly entertained to- people of Iowa City while there at the guard, encampments and that a Sale Little Gents' solid leather New, Style Box Calf Blucher QO« worth $1.25 10L 54-inch Broadcloths 75c Taffeta Silks ... 75c Worsted Suitings DOUBLE TRADING STAMPS FROM 9 TO 11 TOMORROW, FORENOON.

Instead of hurting business, M:r. Brant declared that it had helped every line of business, while the farms along the line of the road had doubled in value. He touched upon the inter urban lines in New York and how that city had prospered. He asserted that the interurban was the modern mode of transportation and that the time was not far off when interurban lines would form a network all over the United States, especially east of the Missouri river where the population is more dense. Prior to the entrance of the interurban to IoVra City, Mr. Brant declared that the railroad facil ities, especially the freight service, were poor, but since the entrance of the line these have been greatly im proved and that Iowa City now has the same fretght facilities as cities many times her size. The road, he declared, had helped Cedar Rapids and the small towns along its route. In closing, Mr. Brant said that the inter urban road was the coming method of passenger travel and if Iowa City could raise $200,000 it should be an easy proposition to raise $100,000 in Ottumwa. a city nearly three times as large as Iowa City. Judge Bylngton Talks. Judge Byington, former Judge on the bench at Iowa City and another Iowa City booster, was the next speaker. He said that the benefits of the interurban to the people of Iowa City alld Ottumwa were easily seen In his trip from Iowa City to Ottumwa to be present at last night's meet ing. He stated that he had to get up yesterday morning at 5 o'clock and had to travel in a roundabout way and did hot reach Ottumwa until a Boys' 75c Knickerbocker Pants for 49c Boy's 39c Percale and *'*71/.

Mr. Brant stated that his impression of Ottumwa was & city of large whole sale houses, enterprising merchants, large paanufacturing plants, thrifty residence districts iand gbod railroad facilities, and he declared' that he be lieved his impression was true. He said that the people of Iowa City were eager to hitch up with Ottumwa by an interurban line. He told of the cam paign waged in Iowa City to raise funds for the interurban roads from Iowa City to Davenport and from Iowa City to Ottumwa. He stated that the people of the city had raised $100,000 for the Davenport line and $85,000 of the $100,000 for the line to Ottumwa. While these two large sums were raised in a city of 10,000 people, Mr. Brant declared that the wealthy men were not the ones to give, but that the money was raised among the rank and file of the working people. "The people of Iowa City," said he, "especially the younger people, have recognized the advantages of the in terurban since the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City line has been In operation and have freely subscribed from their earn ings." He told of clerks making $60 to $85 a month who had subscribed $100 towards the lines. He declared that the interurban line between Iowa City and Ottumwa would be worth much more to the people of. Ottumwa than the $100,000 this city is to raise. He told how the lnterurbans had helped Clinton, Iowa City and many other places. He declared that when the Cedar Rapids company decided to build the line to Iowa City there was much opposition to road, due to the belief that it would draw trade away from Iowa City and everything was done to prevent the road entering the city. Since the building and operation of the line seven years ago, however, the people of Iowa, City would not be without the road for anything. Cases for 3.98 He then told of the interurban roads as developers of the small towns and cities and pointed out how the towns of North Liberty and Swisher be tween Cedar Rapids and Iowa City have prospered since the road was built. Should Not Make Mistake. Following Judge Byington came Captain S. H. Harper who told of the mistakes of Ottumwa business men in early days when they had an oppor tunity to secure the southwestern di vision of the Rock Island road. The people of the city raised $150,000 de clared Mr. Harper and then the rail road asked $30,000. The people thought the latter proposition was blackmail and refused to raise the subscription to $180,000. The deal fell through. "If the people of Ot tumwa in these days Lad not made this fatal mistake" said, Mr. Harper, "Ottumwa would have secured the southwest division of the Rock Island which would have meant millions of made the mistake there would not have made the mistake there would not htve been any town of Eldon and that part of the population of Fairfield would have been brought to Ottumwa. After making this fatal mistake the citizens raised $150,000 to get the Kansas City division of the Milwaukee road. If the city of ottnumwa forty years ago with 5,000 population, had gone down into their pockets and raised the sum of $150,000 to secure the Milwaukee road, I cannot think it will be a %hard iuTuitwj romm 98c $1.50 Suit Cases with brass lock and key ..

In or der to get home, he stated that he would have to leave Ottumwa at 12 o'clock at night, and if he was able to make a five-minute connection at Dav enport, he would reach home at & o'clock in the morning. With the inter urban, lie stated that he could have taken an early supper at Iowa City and reached Ottumwa in time for the meeting, and returning by the inter urban after the meeting he would be home in time to get a good night's sleep. His address was filled with good thoughts, and like Mr. Brant, he ex hibited the Iowa City booster spirit in every syllable. He told how the peo ple of Iowa City had literally driven away the B., C. R. & N. railway when it wanted to put Its terminal there. He declared that the people did not believe that the road would pass up Iowa City. He said that this old spirit had died in Iowa City and the citizens of that place were now boosters through and through. He touched upon the fine territory which the interurban would touch. A year ago, he said, the people of his city took- up the project for an interurban line between Iowa City and Ottumwa, which would ^ap this rich farming territory to the southwest. He told of the work that had been accomplished, the surveys that had been made and declared that the time is now ripe to build the line. Ottumwa, he stated, is asked to raise $100,000, Iowa City $100,000, and the community between the two cities a similar sura. The people who subscribe toward the $100,000 in Ottumwa are not asked to give one cent until cars are in operation between the two cities. The people are taking no chances, said the speaker, and the in vestment is a good one. pro position to raise the $100,000 for the Ottumwa-Iowa City interurban road in a city of 25,000 people. The people should be willing to go down into their pockets and subscribe to the interur ban which would mean so much to Ot tumwa. Mayor Hartman For It. When called upon, Mayor Hartman declared that making interurban BDeeches was. hardly in his lina but that he was greatly In favor of the road between Ottumwa and Iowa City. He declared that personally he would do all in his power to secure the en terprise. "Ottumwa does not want to be a back number" declared Mayor Hartman, "and it is my belief that the solicitors will have no trouble in rais ing the sum needed." 8um Mere Bagatelle, Calvin Manning took Chairman Foster to task because he did not men tion the Interurban roads at Albla in which he is interested. Mr. Man ning declared that Ottumwa needed the Iowa City road and needed it badly. He said that there should be no more talking but that the com mittees should get out immediately and raise the sum of $100,000 for the road. ".This sum," he declared, "was a mere bagatelle for a city of 25,000. All tvo people of Ottumwa, Iowa City and people along the line had to do was to raise $3ov,o00 while the men behind the project would furnish over a million dollars for the road. The sum which the men behind the road ask for would not pay tor the grading, distribution of the material and other expenses. The building of the road would start from Ottumwa and the money subscribed by' the Ottumwa people would be brought back in wages paid to the workingmen en gaged on the construction of the line, who would spend a large part of the wages in uving in Ottumwa. -Tells of Progress. F. W. Simmons, director of the in terurban company, then gave some Information. He said that after the proposition had been turned down by some foreign and American capitalists, the directors of the road secured a party of capitalists who would finance the line.' The Ottumwa and Iowa City people were given ninety days to raise the money he said and the directors of the road had every evi dence that the money will be forth coming. The contracts, he declared, are* now --nding. Major T. P. Spilman made a few remarks and declared that he did not believe that-Ottum -a could pas3 u^ the proposition. Dr. Craig Work told of his trip on the »,edar Rapids-Iowa City interurban and how fine it was to travel on a road where dust, cin ders and smoke were not in evidence. Securing Right of Way. Frank Tanner, another Iowa City booster and head of the Ottumwa Iowa City line, declared that since 1854 surveys had been made from Iowa City to Ottumwa for a line.. He said that the opportunity never looked brighter for the line than at the pres ent time. All of the right of way be tween Iowa City and Ottumwa has been signed up with the exception of six miles. "Keota will come up to its subscription," said the speaker, "and now it is up to Ottumwa to do its share." Chairman Foster in adjourning the meeting declared that Ottumwa should make a whirlwind campaign to raise the money, and he believed that the people of Ottumwa would subscribe liberally to the project which is practically assured. ONE PORKER WEIGHS OVER 950 He Comes From Manning and Is a Monster—Hog Display at the Fair.. is Wonder This Year. Des Moines, Aug. 31.—The real "Normandy chimes" of the Iowa state fair are to be heard every evening about supper time In the vicinity of the hog barns, where some 2,000 pork ers can be heard lustily calling for supper. Of all the noises that ever rattled the drum of the human ear the music of two of the* three thousand porkers is the worst. There are Pol and Chinas, Duroc-Jerseys, Chester Whites, Berkshires, orkshires, Hamp shires, Tamworths, and in fact, every breed of h6g known to the Iowa farm er, albeit he knows every breed of hog that was ever brought into existence. There are porkers in the hog exhi bit this year which weigh close to half a ton and that is some good sized hog. One of the largest, if not the very largest hog, that is shown in the pen, in a Poland China porker weighing 950 pounds. Said hog is the property of R. W. Halford, of Manning, Iowa. The hog is a monster. He h&& a good com petitor for weight honors in John Cod dard's big Duroc-Jersey which weighs 875 pounds. Mr. Goddard comes from Harlan, where he has some fine hogs "Universal" -v Coffee Percolator Excels all other ways of making coffee, because the percolation is completed bc fore the water boils.

StVEREID LONE SCORER Gentleman James Spoils Galesburg's Smiles in No. 10, When He Hoisted the Pill to the Wabash Tracks. There's a dint in the head of the spike on tie No. 4,372, just twelve foot lengths forninst the O. P. side of the steel work on the Wabash tracks. The dint came into being when the league ball smote by Jimmy Johnston was sent on its way at 5:15 yesterday af ternoon. Besides robbing the spike of its duty to Pres. Delanu and the rest of the men higher up, the smack be hind the ball shot Into the fighting Hough highbinders a ten Inning defeat and allowed the Speed Boys to retain their exalted position on the topper most pinnacle of the Central associa tion heap. (Pipe the poetry). Severeid scored from first on the jamb by Jimmy and we all flocked out of the park happy that our pedals brought us there. This all happened in the tenth inning with Kensel and Russel de ceased. The Chattanooga young man plccaloed the first ball heaved by Weinie Weisenberger and Its glorious flight was over Left Gardener Nickell's nob, the fence, the high willows and slap bang against Mr. Spike in the bridge. Had the bridge not been there, the ball would have progressed on down the river to Keokuk, so cruelly did. James meet it. Thus it was that a very fitting climax was made possible to the hurrah job of flinging by Maurie Kent. His zing ball zanged over the gutta percha with dazzling results his hari kari kink listened like Teddy and the R. R.'s going up San Juan incline and his subway shoot, besides making Hank Severeid work like a Trojan, was the one best bet of all. Lead Nickell led the terrific hitting of the highbinders with a single in the first. Mr. Blausser ended the onslaught with the same kind of a drive in the tenth. Whiffs were easy to accomplish when Maurie thought it necessary. To illus trate It need only be said that the fourth and sixth chapters when the ene my were on, were ended by Maurie's outguessing Blausser, Nickell and Kom mers. It was one sweet job of pitching by the collegian manipulator, believe us. That one inning when the score crossed is so good that it must be re peated' here in full detail. The tenth opened with Kilpatrick skying out to Senno Blausser binged the second safe hit of the conflict to left, but he never got beyond first. Brand aero planed to Johnston, and Senno extin guished the Schley Mr. Sampson. When Nickel came in under Kensel's high fly in the Speed Boys' side of the frame, it looked like Galesburg would have another chance in the eleventh. Brand and the quiet young man on first retired Russell and the scorers commenced to form an "O" for Ottum wa. Severeid, however, thought three hits were none too many for a ten ln rfng game, and he shot the leather to Weisenberger. It caromed off the nude paw of the big twirler and went for a hit. Then the honest, truly, black and bluely rap of the battle popped loose. J. Joker Johnston met the first heave of Wlggler Weisen berger and away to the track she went. Of course Hank trotted to the haven which all good ball players strive to reach and the winsome win was won. ^..... Shakey Periods Numerous. The conflict at periods set the heart action of the bugs and the feminine In sects close to palpitation. In the fourth Galesburg had a lovely chance to score., Kilpatrick being on third. Blausser, however, succumbed to Kent, and the side was retired by three beauty strikes. Again in the sixth, some thought of a loss of first place was entertained by the bugs. Sensen back walked when Kent hit him. Lot shaw's dump put Sensy on second, but there he died when Maurie whiffed Nickell and Kommers. Weisenberger, too, had a little of this effectiveness. In the third Senno vyas close to home on a walk, a stolen base and Oaks' sacrifice, but Borton and Wrigley ozoned. In the eighth with Kent and Kensel down, Russell, Severeid and Johnston hit safely. Senno cracked ». vicious drop, and the ball skidded Into the waiting hands of Weisenberger, who nipped Russell at home. In the tenth, however, things were different and that's why the Speed Boys are three points to the good over Quincy. The 8core. Ottumwa— AB. R. H. PO. A. E.
