Memorial.' •'s
In a report that is full' of interest to
the Woman Suffragist and others who
favor the ballot for the fair sex, Mrs.
M. A. Peck who represented the local
"Woman Suffrage society at the con
vention, deals exhaustively with the
"work of the gathering throughout the
sessions. Mrs. Peck was among the
speakers at the convention and made
a reply to the magazine article by Mol
lie KlHott Seawell on "The Ladies Bat
tle." Mrs Peck states that the hos
pitality shown was lavish and that
the convention was a success. The
ehooslng of the place of the next con
tention was left open for invitations
Jrom cities-desiring the meeting. Ot
tumwa did not invite the convention
during the meeting as the representa
tive wished to confer ^rith the local
society and the probability is that Ot
ttimwa will seek the next meeting.

Mrs. Keith of Des Moines, Mrs. Ryker
of Boone, Mrs. M. A. Peck of Ot
tunrwa and others.
Brings Out Miss Wlllard.
Mrs. Peck gave a humorouB talk
and called out Miss Mabel Willard
who has been traveling the past two
years iin Australia, Mew Zealand,
Japan, pbina, Sweden, jftnland, Ger
many land London, observing the
workings of Woman Suffrage in those
countries. She had the pleasure of
marching with the suffragettes in
London. She is a typical lady and her
remarks were received with much
pleasure. At 8 o'clock they adjourned
to the Methodist church and listened
to welcomes by the mayor, and from
the press, the churches and responses
to the same.
Hold Memorial.
Wednesday forenoon was devoted to
business and exercises in memory of
Julia Ward Howe, Mrs. Mary J. Neely
and Mrs. Josephine Barnes the last
two being earnest workers for the
cause in Iowa.
At the afternoon session Miss Flora
Dunlap of Des Moines, gave an ad
dress upon "The New York Shirt
Waist Makers' Strike." Mrs. Mary J.
Coggeshall as member of the National
W. S. A. committee gave a very inter
esting report of the last national
meeting. Dr. Nina Dewey closed the
afternoon session with an impassioned
address on "The Mother's Need of the
Ballot," and called for pledges which
amounted to $608.
Wednesday evening Bishop Frank
Bristol of Washington, D. C., gave his
address, "My Young Man," closing
with an eloquent appeal for the ballot
for women.
Mrs. Peck Replies.
Thursday forenoon came reports on
press work, woman's standard, church
work, Men's league for Woman Suf
frage and the rally at the state fair.
In the afternoon were reports of
clubs, resolutions committees and the
reply of Mrs. M. A. Peck to the article
in the September Atlantic, "The
Ladies' Battle," by Mollie Elliott Sea
well. The fallacious reasoning of the
writer was clearly exposed, and many
of her statements shown to be abso
lutely falBe. The writer falls back up
on the old Greely doctrine, that the
ballot must be backed by a bullet,
just when the enlightened nations
are coming to discard the war theory
n# coHlino differences. In times of
war women can make themselves
quite as useful in other ways than
shouldering arms.
Mrs, Harriet Evans of Corydon read
a paper on Woman Sugrage in
European countries.
Dr. Aylesworth Spoke.
The final address was given Thurs
day evening in the auditorium by Dr.
Barton O. Aylesworth of Colorado,
organizer and lecturer for the National
Woman Suffrage association.
Dr. Aylesworth, formerly of Drake
university, has resided in Colorado
fourteen years and has perfect knowl
edge of woman suffrage and utterly
refutes the false statements made by
its opposers. He gave unstinted praise
to the work of Judge Lindsey, whfse
re-election was accomplished by the
votes of the women. He worked three
months last winter in New York with
Mrs. Belmont, at the time of the girls'
strike, speaking of her as a broken
hearted, great brained woman who is
devoting herself and her wealth to the
good of her sex.
Thus ended one of the most enthus
iastic meetings of Iowa Suffragists.
The victory in Washington state, with
good news coming in along all lines,
and the fact that the men are coming
to their aid is giving the women new

Two Workingmen Find Body of Boy
Lying Across Sidewalk and Take
Him Into Neighboring House
—Has Concussion.
-A strange and unprovoked case of
slugging in •vqhich the victim is a mere
youth still in his teens, took place be
tween 6 and 7 o'clock -vening
The scene of the sandbagging was the
long sidewalk leading from the Vine
street bridge to the Dain plant, and
the victim was Clarence Barber, 701
Church street. The youth Is em
ployed as checker of the Burlington
yards by day and is a universally liked
lad among his fellows both young and
old. The first knowledge of the slug
ging came when two workmen en
route home aiong South Vine street,
found the bo lying across the side
walk unconscious. They tried to rouse
the lad and he returning to conscious
ness, was able to rise only after being
assisted but unable to go on by him
self. The two men who were unknown
to the boy, took him to the home of
George Halsted, 206 North Madison
avenue while the family were eating
supper. At that time Clarence was in
a dazed but conscious condition and
talking as though in a stupor managed
to make plain that he had been struck
over the ear by some one unknown to
him, after his assailaft bad spoken a
few words to him. He said that after
being struck over the left ear, he did
nor remember anything until found
by the two men sometime later.
He was removed to his home a little
later In the evening.
Has B»en Followed.
His friends at the Burlington yards
are aroused over the affair and are
anxious to locate the person guilty of
the assault. It was stated there this
morning that Barber had told them of
a colored man whom he had been meet
ing near the end of the Vine street
bridge frequently of evenings and that
this fellow would often start out to
walk after him. He Said that he did
not know whether he was being fol
lowed or not, b*if. that walking along
after him for a long-distance, it was
only upon thefjoy turning onto another
street that his follower left him. He
was getting alarmed at it, and said that
he would be on his guard for fear of

Read what Professor Aven Nelson, State Horticulturist of the State of Wyo
ming, says regarding
The Big Horn Basin Country
"I beg to state that my visit of inspection to the fruit section of the Big Horn
Basin was exceedingly satisfactory. The orchards that I visited along the
Big Horn River are in full fruit, even this year. I regard the outlook for the
lands along the River from Worland to the Cannon and the lower course of
the Shoshone from Cowley to Ionia as exceedingly' promising. My observa
tion leads me to believe that these lands will becom' as valuable for the pro*
duction of high grade apples as even the best of those In Idaho and Montana.
Shell Creek this year was certainly a surprise to anyone who visited the lo
cality. I think anyone wouli. be justified in predicting that these lands will
very shortly become more valuable for fruit than for any other crop that
might be grown"
Such expert opinion as the above, given by an unprejudiced state Official,
should have weight with those looking for orchard lands.
WRiTE TODAY for our illustrated literature and
you will be surprised how cheaply these choice apple
lands can be purchased.
