Mrs. Esther B. Jones Dead.
Mrs. Esther B. Jones, wife of G. C.
Jones, and mother of
G. E.
Jones, died Thursday morning, Feb
ruary 20tL. 1908. about 3 o'clock, heart
failure being the immediate cause of
her death
Mrs. Jones was born at SfriugBeld,
Mass, September 17th, 1833, where she
lived with her parents until she was
twenty-four years old. In 1857 she
moved to Wisconsin, near Baraboo,
where she taught school and on Dec.
21, 1859, married George C. Jones.
They lived there until 1874 when they
moved to Sao City, Iowa, only staying
six months, and then to Boone, Iowa,
where they lived till 1882, and then to
Paulina, Iowa, where they lived till
they came here September 15,1900.
The move here was made necessary
by the condition of Mrs. Jones' health.
She was brought here on a cot, absolu
tely helpless from sciatic rheumatism
and at the time of her death was well
and vigorous, helping with the house
work and moving around among her
friends and relatives with ease.
Her husband and three children
survive here, Mrs. Eva Johnson and
G. E. Jones living here and Mrs. Ada
Gluver, living at Paulina, Iowa. One
daughter, Mrs. Abbie Esther McNutt,
has preceded here.
Funeral arrangements depend upon
the' arrival of Mrs. Gluver, and the
body will be taken to Paulina, Iowa
for interment.
Mrs. Jones was a faithful mem
ber of the Presbyterian church and
during her illness was a patient and
cheerful christian sufferer, with a word
of help and comfort for all. To know
her was to love her as she was a living
witness of the joy that only comes to
true christians who are "made perfect
through suffering."
To the sorrowing husband and child
ren the STAR joins with a host of
friends in extending sincerest sym
pathy in the hour of trial.

Good for Local Merchants.
A Washington special says:—Pro
vision for the establishment of a par
cels post on all rural mail routes was
made in a bill introduced in the senate
today by Senator Burnham. It is
modeled along the lines recommended
by Meyer's annual report. Merchants
in a town where the route begins may
forward merchandise to a rural custom
er at a rate of five cents for the first
pound and two cents for each addition
al pound. Paokages are limited to
eleven pounds. If passed, the measure
will give the country merchant a vast
advantage over the mail order houses,
permitting eleven pound paokages to
go for a quarter, whereas it would cost
the merchant outside S1.76.

Mars "The City Beautiful."
In the course of his address on "The
City Beautiful" at the Commercial
Club banquet last week, Alderman E.
A. Sherman discussed the saloon ques
tion in the following way:
"There is one cloud that mars the
city beautiful today, and it is one for
which we are all responsible. This
city for every four hundred of its
inhabitants, licenses a business and
partakes in its profits, that despoils
the home. But the great awakening
that is now taking place* in Che busi
ness world, a movement not led by
fanatics but fostered apd carried for
ward by the business men of this
country for the improvement of busi
ness interests, a movement that is
sweeping westward from the Atlantic
ocean and northward from the Gulf of
Mexico, will some day envelop this
city and state and this evil will be re
duced and kept within its proper
limits. When that time comes then
every home, freed from these dissipat
ing and demoralizing influences, may
blossom and bloom in the fragrance of
beautiful surroundings."—Sioux Falle.

Congressmen Seriously Charged—Col.
Parker "Don't Think" He Did It.
Here are both sides to a most sen
sational story that oomes from Wash
ington: S
Kelley and Knowles did not do any
thing during the two years they drew
salaries as congressmen from South
Dakota, but it was not necessary for
the deoent people of the state to apolo
gize for thatn or either of them during
their stay in Washington other than
for their incompetency. As much
cannot be said for Parker and Hall,
If the world likes to know the reason
why, ask the door keeper of the White
House at Washington.—Webster Re
porter and Farmer.
The foregoing no doubt refers by in
ference to the fact that Congressman
Parker disgraced himself and the state
at a recent reception at the White
House. When Mr. Parker reached the
president in line he clapped the presi
dent on the back, called him "Teddy,"
maudled over him and did and said
other things of which only a man in
that condition could be guilty. The
president turned his back in disgust
and secret servioe men hustled the
maudlin congressman to an anti-room.
In plain language, Congressman Parker
representing the state of South Dakota»
was much the worse for liquor at a
public reception at the White House,
maudled over the president, was hust
led off by secret service men and the
president issued orders to strike his
natne from the list of eligibles at the
White House.
And while the truth is being told
about the present congressional repre
sentation from this state, be it said
that for many months Congressman
Hall has been under surveillance for
the same weakness or crime in a public
servant, according as such things are
viewed.—Aberdeen News.
The Sioux City Tribune of the 17th
in contradiction to the above publishes
the following as a Washington special
to the New York World:
Colonel William H. Parker, of Dead
wood, one of the two congressmen from
'South Dakota, attended the president's
reception to congress recently and
seemed to enjoy himself very much.
"What's this I hear colonel," said
another congressman to Parker a few
days afterward. "Did you dare to slap
the president on the back and call him
"Teddy" at the reception? Did the
seoret service men fire you from the
White House? Are you forbidden to
enter there again?"
"1 did not call the president 'Teddy,"
answered Colonel Parker with dignity
"That is I don't think I did. I am cer
tain I did not slap the president on the
back. How could I? I was in front
of the receiving line. Bullock was
beside the line perhaps he slapped Mr.
Roosevelt's back."
"Do you mean Seth Bullock?" asked
the colonel's friend.
"I never can remember his first
name," answered Parker tartly, "so I
call him something else."
Colonel Parker mentioned what he
calls Seth Bullock, but that's another
story. As everybody knows President
Roosevelt made his friend Bullock
United States Marshal for South Da
kota. Bullock is bitterly opposed, with
in the republican party, to Colonel
Parker, who is a candidate for re-elec
"I am not a ranchman, nor a cow
boy, nor that sort of thing," continued
Colonel Parker, "but more than once
I have welcomed Mr. Roosevelt to
Deadwood and given him the freedom
of the city. But I did not slap him on
the back and call him 'Teddy' there
certainly I don't think I would do so
here. I have never been unduly fa
miliar with anyone that I can remem
"What really happened at the recep
"I went there with three friends,"
said the Deadwood congressman. "I
remember that I introduced the three
friends to the president and to Mrs.
Roosevelt. It probably is true that
this delayed tha line a little and that
it was what the newswapers^ called "'a
noticeable incident.' Besides the intro
duction to the lady of the White House
was untimely as I should have re
membered that Mrs. Roosevelt carries
a bouquet so that she will not be ex
pected to shake hands.
"Probably my manner at the recep
tion showed my natural friendship for
the president, whom I consider my
friend. For 1 am 61 years old, a vet
eran of the civil war and 1 have been
blessed w,ith 11 children. Besides, as a
westerd man, I feel very friendly to
ward the president, who prides him
self on having passed a considerable

part of his life in the west.
"But faikillar with him? No!" Col
onel Parker oonoluded. "Nor was I
put out of the White House. I went
out in the usual way—I mean in the
way everyone goes out. I have not
been refused admission to the White
House since that time. I have not been
there, so you see a mountain has been
made of something even smaller than
a mole hill."
v' Democracy Gets Together.
The democratic county central com
mittee met at their headquarters at the
office of Eastman & Dudley last Sat
urday, with 29 members present—which
is more than two-thirds of their com
mittee. By unanimous vote they de
cided not to use the primary for select*
ing delegates to the st&te convention
at which delegates will be chosen to
national convention to nominate a
presidential candidate. The committee
thereupon named the following dele
gates: W. B. Dudley, Capt. G. G. Seger
and A. J. Colgan with the following
alternates: C. S. Eastman, Dan Harris
and Geo. W. Highley.
A motion was carried instructing
the delegates and alternates "to use all
honorable means to secure the nomi
nation and eleotion of Hon. W. B,
Dudley as a delegate to the national
convention to be held at Denver, Co.lo.,
July 7,1908." Also
"It was further unanimously resolv
ed that the delegates from the great
state of South Dakota to the demo
cratic convention to be held in Denver,
use all honorable means to nomi
nate that peerless leader and states
man, William Jennings Bryan, as presi
dent of all of the people of the ^United
The report of the proceedings of the
committee further says:
''The members of the committee then
listened to a short address by Capt. G.
G. Segar, who, in a talk of ten or
fifteen minutes, outlined the policy of
the democratic party of the state and
nation and gave to his remarks the
reason and earnestness of over fifty
years experience in the fight for the
interests of all of the people, which
remarks received marked and unani
mous applause."
"Women's Civic League."
The ladies of Hot Springs have in
dicated their progressive spirit by
organizing a "Women's Civic League."
Recognizing that much good has re
sulted in other communities where
such civic organizations have been in
operation for a number of years, they
are encouraged to believe that some
thing cau be accomplished here, where
there is even greater need and greater
opportunity for work than in the aver
age place the sizepof Hot Springs.
This organization enters upon its work
with no spirit of antagonism but with
the purest and most unselfish motives,
yet with a firm determination to allow
no backward movement in the future
progress of Hot Springs. With the
large tourist population, with both a
State and National Soldier's Home,
conditions socially, civically and
financially, differ from those in almost
any other oommunity.
The dangers greater, the opportuni
ties more abundant, and the need for
organized and intelligent effort pro
portionally larger.
Every woman naturally,, enjoys best
the quiet retirement of her own home,
and such social duties as belong there,
but her duty to her husband and child
ren require something more of her
than this, and it is only by a knowledge
of general conditions outside of her
home that she can wisely meet these
conditions which confront her family
It is with a keen appreciation of the
present situation and a strong desire
to make better the surroundings of
the youth of our city, stimulated {in
past, perhaps, by the' disposition of
some to suppress those things which
mean the betterment of these condi
tions, that the Civic League has been
formed. Let no mother feel that she
is to busy to give thoughtful considera
tion to this matter.
_. Ttie.organizat'on is free to all resi
dents of Hot Springs who are Mtertfet-"
ed in the work of the League as set
forth in the constitution.
"In a multitude of counsel there is
much wisdom," and the League is
rapidly assuming a large and enthusi
astic membership. ..
