Messages From Out of Town.
To prove that the celebration was
not merely local but of statewide in
terest, Mr. Stephens read letters and
telegrams from the following persons
expressing their regrets at not being
able to attend: Judge John F. Phil
ips of Kansas City, former Federal
fudge; George S. Johns, editor of the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch; W. M. Led
better, of the editorial staff of the St.

The Charm of Columbia.
The first speaker was A. W. Douglas,
vice-president of the Simmons Hard
ware Company of St. Louis, who made
the trip to Columbia especially for the
occasion. Mr. Douglas said in part:
"To one who is used to wandering
over the face of the world such a
tavern as this means a great deal. I
think this is one of the most beautiful
structures of its kind in the United
States. And not only do you have one
the finest hotels in the country in Co
lumbia, but you also have here the
school that Is the dearest and most
precious In my mind the University

Hc. I am watching your progress
with eager interest all the time."
A. T. Dumm of Jefferson City, a
member of the Missouri State Legisla
ture, expressed his appreciation of
the enterprise shown by Columbia In
erecting the Daniel Boone Tavern, and
likened the faith of Columbians in the
future progress of this city to the
faith In themselves that led Daniel
Boone and his contemporaries to brave
the wilderness in breaking the path
for the spread of civilization in Mis
souri. He emphasized the present
need for men with faith in their coun
try and the courage to sacrifice for it
In the present world crisis.
Rajs of Trail Blazlnc.
Dean Walter Williams compared
the present days with those to come.
His address in part follows:
"These are days or glory as well as
days that are grim; these are days of
trail blazing, not as Daniel Boone
blazed the trail on which this hotel is
located through the West in seeking
salt licks and coon skins and bears.
There are no more countries to dis
cover But In these days consciences
are being discovered; national con
science and a world conscience are

I am more concerned with the
(! t0 colnc tnan these days. No age
i world history has had its mind
fixed on the future more than these
days. But in passing I might say that
we must look to the present. Unless
we improve the condition of the trail
on which this hotel is located, it will
make the Daniel Boone Tavern look
like a diamond on a dirty shirt. We
must make the Old Trails Highway
safe for democracy."
A Look Into the Future.
Assuming the role of prophet, Dean
Williams predicted the end of the di
vine rights of kings and of kaiserism
within the next year.
"The coming days will bring also a
spiritual change," he added, "that will
ring us nearer God. The days that
are to come will be as we make them,
not as we dream they will be."
After the singing of "The Star
Spangled Banner," Mrs. I W. St. Clair
Moss, president of Christian College,
read a poem of her own composition
entitled "Greetings to Rebecca Bryan
Boone," in commemoration of the
part the wife of Daniel Boone played
in the task of spreading civilization
The banquet ended with the singing
of "Old Missouri" and "Auld Lang
Syne." The tables were immediately
cleared from the floor, and dancing
began, "Home Sweet Home" was play;
ed at midnight.

Kaiser's Troops Land on
Two Islands in the Gulf
DANGER IS FORESEEN
Movement to Outflank the
Russian Line Regarded
Ity Associated Press
LONDON, Oct. 13. The German
troops have landed on the islands of
Oasel and Dago In the gulf of Riga,
according to a Russian dispatch
Oasel and Dago islands are at the
entrance to the gulf of Riga and pro
vide easy access to the mainland and
to smaller islands on the way toward
the capital. Dago Island is 200 miles
from Petrograd an dits position de
rives additional Importance from the
fact that it is almost at the mouth of
the Gulf of Finland, at the head of
which is Kronstadt, which defends
Petrograd. Oasel Island is nearly
100 miles north of Riga, which the
Germans captured recently.
The landing of troops onAstonia
Island would threaten the out'flanking
of the Russian line and probably
compelffi retreat on a wide section of
the front if, indeed, it did not open
the way to Petrograd itself.

CHICAGO, Oct. 13. In a game that

tors this afternoon the Chicago Amer
icans scrambled into the World's
Series lead again by defeating the
New York Nationals, 8 to 5, and
swinging to the fore, three games to

gamut of baseball from sensational
and brilliant to mediocre, but never

Its conclusion the fans were almost .

Russell started for Chicago, but after
he had walked Burns, Herzog had

The game will net go down Into the

with errors of omission and commis

the National Commission $6,943.36.
After having gone twenty-four in
