11 JOINT SESSION PAYS TRIBUTE TO COMMANDER (Continued from Page One.) summation so devoutly wished by all peoples, kindreds and tongues. "What we say here will be little heeded, but the memory of what you and your gallant men did over there will be cherished forever, as part of the precious treasures of the mighty republic. "General, you commanded more than anv other American soldier ever commanded more, we hope, ., . . , . ... ' than any other American will ever command, for every sane and patri- otic American most fervently tiopes that our country, so favored by heaven in all that makes for true manhood and womanhood, will never be involved in another wan "Of all your actions the one for which we are most profoundly grateful and for which we love you I best was that you strongly and triumphantly insisted that you and your men would fight only as an American army and not merely as replacement troops for British, rench, Italians or Belgians. Tha eat was the acid test of your ro bust Americanism. It caused all our hearts to twell with inneffable pride and entiti! you to our eter nal gratitude. "Extraordinary military rank should be conferred only for extra ordinary services in the field. In appeciation of your services, the congress, voicing the sentiments oi the American people, have con ferred on you in perpetuity the ex traordinary rank of full general the highest military honor within our power to btstow. and in hon oring you we feel that we are hon oring ourselves. "In addition to the permanent generalship, the congress has ten dered you individually and to your officers and men en masse the thanks of the American people and yof congress of the United States rare honor in itself conferred in oii. entire history on only a very few of our distinguished citizens for extraordinary services to the republic. Formal Message of Thanks. "The resolutions of thanks is in these words: " 'The thanks of the American people and of the congress of the I United States are due, and are j hereby tendered, to General John i J. Pershing, for his highly dis- tinguished services as commander- in-chief of the American Expedi- tionary Forces in Europe, and to the officers and men under his command duty and for their unwavering valor throughout the war. In conclusion the former speaker paid a tribute to his native state and explained why he had been selected to speak, saying: '"The chief reason why the com mittee of arrangements appointed me for the most pleasant function . is the. fact that you are not only a , great American but also the fore . most living Missourian than which there is no finer type of American while I happen to be the dean of the Missouri delegation in con gress. I am proud and happy to present you as 'exhibit A," showing for the whole world what sort of men Missouri grows when in her most prodigal, of moods." PRAISE COUNTY FARM IN REPORT Supervisors' Committee States In stitution is Well Conducted and Commends Steward. Rock Island's county home in Rural township near Coal Valley came in for an abundance of praise before the supervisors yesterday afternoon when the report of the special committee on inspection wa3 read. The tour was conducted Sept. 11. , The institution is a model of cleanliness, the surroundings are beautiful, and the inmates ' are treated with the utmost kindness, according to the report. Superin tendent and Mrs. W'ylie are ex tended a vote of thanks for the manner in which they have con ducted the farm. k d,lf The committee notes the need the repair of floors in the men's and women's Duildings, which at present are in such a state that water used for scrub bing seeps through and will in time cause plaster on the ceilings below to fall. It is also recom mended that a new hog house be constructed, and at a greater dis tance from the main buildings than the one now in use. Mention is made of the new barn which can house -more than 50 head of cattle. At present 22 cows ire furnishing milk. The old folks on the Mrni ap peared to be contented with the. condition of affairs, the report itates. Several of them voluntarily ipproached the members of the committee and spoke highly of the food given them, and of the kind ness shown by the heads of the institution. Kansas City Livestock.

Interest will again center upon the developments of steel labor matters. It is feared that if a gen eral strike comes it will have more far-reaching effect than is now thought. On account of the demoralization of foreign exchange a gloomy feeling prevails in the street. This is being felt to an un usual degree, also, on the Royal Dutch exchange. Those who sold stocks short will want to buy them back, especially if any favorable action can be tak en by Gompers to stay the strike movement. . The short side is al ready crowded and it will take lit tle encouragement to induce bears to attempt to cover. Nothing has transpired to justi fy a hope that the steel strike will be averted, labor leaders say. PIT GOSSIP (Furniehfd by E. W. Wasnrr Co.. members of all exchanges.

Weakness in foreign exchange cre- kates a rather gloomy feeling in financial circles. Gary insists on open shop in the steel industry, which leaves the question where it was at the start of the agita tion. The great 4S-day break is gener ally regarded as being completed. Many believe 1.50 a limit for Sep tember corn. One cash man guess ed 750,000 bushels new corn sold to the east for deferred shipments. Outside markets are guessed as about sold up on rye for future shipments for a time. Many traders fear there will be no frost scare in corn this season. Grain Opinions. Gray Feel that it will be the part of wisdom not to ignore prof its on all healthy returns. Clement Market will follow the disturbed labor conditions; the outcome being yet in serious doubt. Good rains throughout the corn belt make pasturage, and any les sening of corn shipments will have little effect. Thompson Until some settl ment of the industrial question is arrived at there is not likely to be any broad market. Quick changes are to be expected, on any recur rent rumors until this, matter is threshed out, or a strike results. ( Chicago Livestock. Chicago, Sept. 18.

CORN TRADING GROWS UNEASY OVER OUTLOOK 'errousness Over Labor Situation, Especially the Steel Strike, Shown by Market. Chicago, Sept. 18. Nervousness over the labor situation, especially the uncertain outlook regarding the steel strike, resulted in an ir regular opening today in the corn market. Little pressure to sell, however, developed, and with com mission houses absorbing most of the offerings more confidence in the buying side was shown. Never theless advances were not well maintained. Opening prices which ranged from Hie decline! to c advance, with September $1,430 1AZM, and December $1.21 1.21 were followed by a moderate up turn all around, but then by some thing of a reaction. Scantiness of arrivals gave inde pendent firmness to oats. After opening off to c advance, in cluding December at 68c to 68c, the market scored a substantial ad vance. Provisions were dull and weak. There was an absence of any ag gressive, support. Speculators, who took a bearish view of the likelihood of a steel strike, found difficti'ity later in cov ering their sales. Scarcity of rural offerings tended to lift the market after every dip. The close was strong. 2V2C to 4c net higher, with September at 1.47 and December at 1.24 to 1.25. Chicago Cash Grain.

UUUIv Ull I U IW , returned to her home yesterday PUT FAIR OVER Friday and Saturday Will See Big Crowds In Aledo if There Is o More I lain. Hopes are still entertained for weather that will give the Mercer county fair organization a chance to break even. If rain holds off Friday and Saturday big crowds are .assured, in spite of muddy roads. People for many miles around had planned this year to atteud one or more days of the week and they will yet come if possible. uampneBs put a neciaeu ap upon me proceedings tnougn the attendance was eu- mated at between two and three thousand at noon and the number was being rapidly augmented The afternoon crowd bid fair to come up to somewhere near i'.ie average ; of former years. I The crew looking after the main- i tenance of the race track spent a busy forenoon trying to get it in shape for this afternoon, when the opening races were scheduled to take place. At noon there was an even chance of the program bein carried out, depending upon wheth er any more rain tell Time hung heavy on the hands of mny of those who came to Aletio to spend the week as exhib itors, in charge of concessions, or as spectators, since the rains start ed, but good order has been main tained and surpjus energies have not Tented themselves in any way to endanger the peace of the com munity. Great gobs of gloom pervaded the atmosphere of the Mercer coun ty fair grounds yesterday. Rain that dreaded bogey of fair officfals was the program. The downpour was steady and plentiful, bringing with it a raw, biting chill. Skies of leaden gray promised no immedi ate breakup. The grounds became a soggy mire of mud and water, while the roads leading to the grounds grew exceedingly slippery. Throughout the day, with scarce ly any cessation the drizzle con tinued. But a scattering handful mustered up sufficient courage to brave the elements for a peek at what was to have been children's day of Mercer's biggest festival. A few of the young folks scampered from tent to tent, taking advantage of the, for them, admissionless day. Performers of carnival and free attractions remained under cover, idling the time away at desultory games of cards. Concession men and women held sway at patron less stands, spending the time in speculating as to how soon the weather would change and Old Sol beam forth his drying rays upon a seepy. dripping landscape. In the administration building fair officials hopefully waited for the weather to clear. Expected Kecord Day. All was in readiness yesterday morning for one of the bumper days of this year's fair. The en tries recorded Tuesday totaled greater than ever before in the history of the fair association. Ideal weather favored on entry day, Tuesday. Tuesday night was clear and apparently cloudless. At 6 o'clock yesterday morning ' the rain began, shattering hopes of Secretary G. C. Bowers and fair officials for a new fair week rec ord. Yesterday judges in. the various departments completed their tasks, and judges' books began coming in shortly after 3 o'clock in the aft ernoon. Department H, covering rntries in horticulture, was thj first received, being closely follow ed by the awards in department K, featuring flowers and plants. Taxis are Idle. Yesterday the "pickia's" were lean for the swarm of taxi drivers who overran Aledo on the day pre vious. Some of the more ambitious ventured as far as Gilchrist, lured there cm the chance that the Rock Island Southern might be off sched ule. Sure enough, it was, the stub line operating at intervals through out the day. Many disgruntled in terurban passengers solicited that they might continue their Journey into Aledo. Aside from the fact that there is apparently an abundance of liquor in Aledo and on the fair grounds, some offering the contraband arti cle for sale at $10 a quart, there has been little in the way of'law lessness to require the attention of the Fpecial officers patrolling the grounds and city, day and night. Fine Start Tuesday. Tuesday, from early until late, exhibitors ai-d fair officials toiled in recording and entering various show displays. The fair grounds appeared as a thriving, bustling city, in marked contrast to its ap pearance yesterday. On Tuesday a steady stream of pedestrians, pleasure cars, trucks, wagons and vehicles of almost every descrip tion wended their respective ways to and from the center of industry. Many out-of-town displays came by auto truck. In thehome bureau tent yester day a few parents listened to the two lectures planned on the after noon's program; one at 2 o'clock on "Infant Care, by Mrs. Fe'her- ston of the child welfare depart- j ment of the communitv council. I and another at 3 o'clock by Dr. Harriet O. F. Alexander of the de partment of public health, on "So cial Hygiene as a Public Health Measure," an address tourhin? upon venereal diseases and their control.

OPERATORS OF WHEEL OUSTED BY THE MAYOR Tbo whir and click of the ivory ball on the Moss Bros, carnival roulette wheel housed in a tent on North College avenue near the postoffice attracted a prominent Aledo citizen as be drew near the attraction. Ten cents a chance. Pick your number. If the ball stops at the number of your choice, you win. Thus the lingo of the barker. Prizes were cute little dolls, candy i a,trt ,; ,v.. oViii j Just tne thlng a dol, fof j, baby Mr prominent citizen hts- itated and wa8 loBt ()ne dime gone the little ball Just missed hia Ellmher. A sister coin followed info the pocket of the wheel ten . . . . der. But that was close, surely Dame Fortune would smile on the next turn. Another dime followed on the trail of the others, without decrease in h's stock of dolls, candy or miscellaneous articles. Mr. Prominent Citizen :noved re luctantly on. Others who watched became sus picious. Consequently a complaint was registered with the city au thorities. Mayor C. A. Beers, accompanied by Chief of Police George Heed i SWOoped down upon the enthuhias- tic rou!ette men. An order from the officer effectively Ktonnsd nrx ceedings in three booths. Despite immediate and strenuous protests of the carnival authorities the or der prohibiting play was not re scinded by Mayor Beers. "Legitimate devices for pleasure and amusement will be permitted," declared the city's executive. "I do not intend to permit the swindling of Aledo people, however, and will employ all means at my disposal in preventing fraud and humbug. Shady and questionable schemes or devices or those Jn which the element of fair play has been elim inated will not be countenanced." Duncan & Yotter, Oakvtlle, Iowa. Homer Daily, Joslin, 111. J M.
