CURRENT COUNCIL COMERS VERY MUCH ALIVE Hoe Tot Look Liks a Man Who Had Bm Thrown Ttreihicg Machine. CANNOT EXPLAIN HOW STORY STARTED Retnrm Mark the F.ad af Dlveree Episode Wales Oaly Leked Oaa T j af Reaching- a Coasaatmatloa. William D. Conyers of this city, who waa recently reported to have died as the result o; Injuries received In a threshing machine accident In Bigelow, Minn., Is very much alive. Ha reached Council BluSs on a late train Saturday night and shortly after mid night called at police headquarters seeking assistance to locate hia wife and family. On reaching town Conyers at once went to 1MB Avenue B, where hia family lived when he left the city laat July, only to fled that hia wifa had moved and the neighbors were unable to tell her present location. Last Friday Mrs. Conyers was granted a default In her suit tor divorce and would In the course of things have been granted a decree today. Conyers, however, denies the allegations that he has been unfaithful and says he will fight the case. This, he says, waa his main purpose la returning to Council BluSs. It is said that Mrs. Con yers placed no credence in the report that her husband was dead and for that reason went ahead with her auit for divorce. Conyers denies all knowledge of the let ter received here containing the account of his death and says he Is at a loss to know who could have written It. About three weeks ago he waa Injured in a threshing machine accident at Bigelow, but although be had to quit work for a few days, his In Juries were not serious. The first that Conyers knew about word being sent here of his death was from the' telegraph op rrator at Bigelow, who told him that a mes sags had been received there asking about him, as there was a report In Council Bluffs that he had been killed. That his wife had begun divorce proceed Ings against him was no news to Conyers snd he admitted that he had received notice of the suit. The allegations of his wife, he Insists, are unfounded but admits that for some time he has been at home but little, as before going to Minnesota be was in the Black Hills country. He says that until he received notice of the divorce proceedings he had continually sent his wife money for her and the children's support. Conyers said the first thing he would do Monday would be to secure the services of an attorney to defend the divorce case, as he intended to fight it to the end. Conyers succeeded In effecting a recon ciliation with his wife yesterday and It Is understood that the divorce proceedings will be dropped. Gravel roofing. A. H. Reld. 841 Broadway.

(From a Staff Correspondent.) DE3 MOINES, Nov. 9 (Special., Tbe efforts of the manufacturers of oleomar garine to enter Iowa under tbe new law have sttrscted the attention of State Dairy Commissioner Wright, who proposes mak ing a test esse as soon as possible to de termine whether the manufactured product can be legally sold In Iowa, even though' the government licenses are paid. Voder the old law the companies practically aban. doned any effort to sell oleo la Iowa, as both the state and tbe federal law discouraged it. Since the law has gone Into force making It possible to secure a government license to sell uncolored oleo margarine on a license costing only It a year, tbe makers have determined upon an Invasion of Iowa, and leading grocers and butchers here and In other cities of the state have been Invited to take up the sale of the goods. As yet no licenses have been taken out by dealers In Du buque, Davenport, Burlington, Marshall town and Ottumwa. As soon as a dealer takes out a government license tbe state dairy commissioner Is notified and he goes to the dealer and warns him that he must comply strictly with the law. But there Is a question as to whether the so-called uncolored oleomargarine which is being put on the market does not in fact violate the Iowa law, which la more specific as to color or resemblance to butter than the federal law. As soon as there is a sale ie Des Moines the state dairy commissioner will bring suit to test this question. If the Iowa law forbids the sale of the oleo margarine which is being put on the mar ket as uncolored, the companies will be forced out of the state. Appolat a ssperlor Jie. The city of Oelwein.

The building committee of the St. Louis Exposition commission has been called to gether for next Tuesday for the purpose of giving additional and more specific In structions to architects as to what Is wanted for the building for Iowa at the St. Louis exposition. The architects of Iowa have been lnvtted to submit plana at a meeting to be held early In Decern ber. but they have no Information as to the size of the building, tbe purposes for which it Is to be designed, the amount of floor space or other details, and some of the leading architects have asked that some specific information on this subject be given out. Panes! College Plans. The trustees of Parsons' college. Fair field, have been called to meet at that place on Tueaday of this week for the purpose of deciding on the future of the college. It Is probable that the college will not be removed. After the fire of last spring, which destroyed the main building of the college, the trustees made " wn that they would expect of the people of Fairfield a considerable contribu I tion to retain the college there, as there were other cities with good offers for removal. The city of Mount Pleasant, which already has a college, made an offer of SaO.OOO cash and site worth $10,000 Since then tbe citizens of Fairfield have raised a large sum to offer to tbe trustees for the endowment fund or to build a new i k..nir.9 mA it i. iikiv that at ti mt ! building, and it is likely that at the meet ing Tuesday It will be definitely deter mined that the college shall not be re moved from Fairfield.

Nov. . In his annual report Admiral Bradford, chief of the Bu reau of Equipment and Repair of tbe Navy department, takes occasion to renew his protest against the substitution of a naval constructor for a line officer at ship building works. A naval constructor, he ears, is a non seagoing officer. Inquiries as to ths cus tom of the merchant maiine In this matter show that the construction of merchant ships Is generally supervised by the most experienced master mariner and chief en gineer in tbe employ of the owners. It is an anomaly to build a ship and prepare it tor sea under the supervision of a lands man. The report does not touch on tbe ques tion of additional coaling statloas or wire less telegraphy. Ths total coal purchased during the year waa $62,043 tons at an average cost of $5.1 per ton, against $7.01 laat year. This was ths lowest price paid for coal since mi, when the average was $4 68. The amount used was 'I per cent larger than the preceding year. The amount of foreign real purchased decreased 14 per cent, while $4 per cent more domestic Coal was used. Special attention Is called to the fact that 41 per cent of the consumption was for suxlllary purposes. Exhaustive tests were made during the early part of the year by tbe torpedo boat flotilla ont of Norfolk with Virginia coal to determine which was best adapted for the torpedo boats. The result showed little difference when the coal was carefully se lected. Admiral Bradford renews his recom- menda'.Ion for tbe construction of two large steam colliers cspsble of carrying 10,000 tons of coal as cargo and 1.0(0 tons In bunkers, with accommrdation for a naval personnel and liberal amount of stores and a secondary battery. Such ships would be very useful In peace or war. They should be capable of twelve knots when loaded and Would be econom ical on long voyages at a speed of eight or nine knots.

REPARE FOR SAENGERFEST 8t Louis is Anticipating a Great Influx of I Germin Siigcrs. PROGRAM OF MEETING ARRANGED something af the History af the Sing- In; Sorletles Which the Oer aaaa Feople Have Made Fasnaaa. ST. LOVIS, Nov. f Vigorous prepara tions are now making for tbe thirty-first national Saengerfest to be held la the lib eral arts building on tbe St. Louis World s fair grounds on June 17. IS. 19 and 20. There will be a meeting of representative cltlsena at the Mercantile club on Novem ber II at S p. m., when addresses will be made by prominent speakers, and ways snd means formulated to rouse Interest In he great festival and make It the great and unprecedented success that it deserve to be The meeting referred to has been called by the World's fslr officials, the mayor of the city, the president of tbe Business Men's league, the president of the Manufacturers' association and the presi dent of the Thirty-first National Saenger fest assoclstion. At the time when St. Louis singers de parted to participate In the thirtieth Saen gerfest, which was held In Buffalo In 1901, the World's fair officials, the mayor of St. Louis, the president of the Merchants' ex change and the president of the Business Men's league urged them to use all tbelr Influence to have the National Saengerfest association decide to make St. Louis and the World's fair grounds the location of the 1903 festival. The St. Louis delegates went lato the plan with patriotic vim and pride and succeeded in gaining their point. The World's fair city was declared to be the next meeting place of the association. When the World's fair waa subsequently postponed to 1904 the officials persuaded the national association to abide by the decision of the delegates In 1901 to bold he festival In St. Louis tn 1903, In tbe liberal arte building, which. It Is confl- ently expected, will be completed by that time. Encouraged by the Interest taken In the matter by the World's fair officials, the Saengerfest board began preparations. organised lta various standing committees, incorporated under tbe name of the Thirty first Saengerfest association, and estab- shed headquarters In rooms S15 and SIS, Wainwrlght building. Progrrasa AH Arranged. The program of the coming festival has already been properly arranged. It will be both In English and German. There will be a reception concert the first evening, in which the orchestra and male choruses will participate, and alao so los and grand mixed choruses, the Utter in EnglUh. The following afternoon there will be a matinee, with orchestra, solos, children's choruses In English and choruses of Amer ican societies. In addition there will be wo grand evening concerts. The festival will wind up with a big volksfest. The main chorus will consist of about ,000 drilled male voices, the singers com ing from all parts of the country, north, south, east and west. The songs will be rendered in an artistic, finished manner. the singers having already been preparing themselves for several months past, and 1 the effect of this grand massed singing; will be heightened by the able conducting of Profs. Richard Stempf and William Lange. It is stated that aome of tbe most famous singing societies of Germany will likewise participate. The mixed choruses of sev eral thousand local voice vill sing in Eng lish and Include some of the best local English societies. The musical committee is endeavoring to secure a quartet of solo singers of not only national, but international reputation, regardless of cost. It will probably be re membered by many St. Loulsans that when the last national Saengerfest was held in St. Louis, in 1S88, they had the pleasure of hearing such eminent singers as LI 111 Lehmatm, Max Alvary, Emit Fischer, Emma Juch and Anna Lankow. A symphony orchestra of 200 of the lead ing musicians of this country will be en gaged under the leadership of a famous director. It will be the strongest orchestra ever heard Jn St. Louis. In connection with this, it may be stated that. In 18S8, the Thomas orchestra was brought from New York to St. Louis at a cost of 112.400. Ths liberal arts building, in which the festival la to take place, will be one of the most elegant structures on the World's fslr grounds. It will be of grand, even Im posing dimensions 7S0xS50 feet. The build ing Is now under construction and will be easily accessible and close to the Llndell pavilion. The World's fair officials have promised to have all transportation facili ties in beet shspe. The chief personal responsibility for the management of the great festival rests in the. hands of Mr. Otto F. Stlfel, as presi dent of the Thirty-first National Saenger fest association. He is assisted by an abl staff of officers, most of whom hsve bad valuable experience in affairs of this kind and magnitude, and may be relied upon "to do tbelr utmost in making the saengerfest what it ought to be and what it promises to be one of the greatest, most artlstle triumphs of the World's fair period la St. Louis. Sketek of Orgaalantlon. Ths following brief historical sketch ol the origin and growth of the German male chorus and of tbe North American saen gerbund may be- of Interest to readers: The secular male chorus rendering songs in four parts was Introduced In Germany by the organist of the cathedral at Salz burg, Michael Haydn, who published In the year 178S the first German "Male Quartets Without Accompaniment." The example of Haydn was followed by Naegell (born 1773) In SwUzerland, L. V, CalU bom 177) in Vienna, and Carl Fried - rich Zelter (born 1758) In Berlin. The lat ter, with the advice of the poet, Goethe founded December li. 1808, at Berlin, the first German singing club for male voices. which consisted exclusively of poets, com posers and singers, and was called "Lieder tafel." modeled after King Arthur's "Knights of the Round Table." Soon afterward the war of liberation began, during which the olii bards, "heroes and singers alike," rose sgaln from tbe ranks of the people; Koerner, Schenken dorf and Arndt wrote their patriotic and war eocgs; Carl Maria von Weber, Reich' ardt, Silcher, Kruetxer and others com posed for tbe male chorus their songs la four parts aad gave to tbe German people a new treasury of excellent vocal music. Increasing thereby considerably the cum ber of papular songs inherited from former centuries. These songs, repeated lnnu merable times, brought consolation and comfort during the many days of afflic tion, kept alive In the minds of the people ths greatness of their fatherland, reminded ths German tribes that they were of '.he same stock and created, fully fifty years before the regeneration of the German em pire. a "Germany of Hearts." The "Liedertafel," founded by Zelter la Berlin, was soon followed by similar clubs In Frankfurt-oa-tbe-Oder, Lelpsie and other cities.

Tbe "Philadelphia Maennerchor," still in existence. Is considered the oldest male chorus In tbe United States. It was founded in 1835 and was followed by tbe Lieder kranx of Baltimore and the Liederkranz of New Orleans.

On account of the great extension of the country and tbe poor accommodations for traveling the New Tork A Erie railroad did not reach Dunkirk before 1831, and tho Baltimore Ohio did not reach Wheeling before 1853 the foundation of several asso ciations or unions of singers became neces sary. And so came into existence, besides the North American tho oldest asoocia tlon, the Northeastern saen gerbund In 1850; the German-Texan in 1852 and the Northwestern ssengerbund in 1855, etc. After the civil war the festivals of the North American ssengerbund were held during great intervals: JARV S 8 BRANDY Socl- Blng- etlos. ers. 13 17 m 1S 31 o 1S67 S4 l.'"J im to l-co ei i 18T1 62 1 1S74 66 l. 1S77 XI l.tsiO 1M7 SK 1,1.) ltxl 46 10 lsKJ 73 2.1'"J IbSi 85 2.4s2 IS.

For many years the necessity had mads Itself felt that tbe North American Saen gerbund organization be made stronger and permanent. It bad been a rather loose or ganization that dissolved after each festi val and that had to be brought together again through agitation on the part of each new festal city. In Cleveland, therefore, a committee was appointed for the purpose of preparing a new constitution. The re port of this committee was adopted la Pittsburg, and thereby was created, be sides tbe committee of tbe festal city, a governing board of the association, whose members, in the majority, resided in those cities at which the last festival of tha union had been held, so that tbe adminis tration had at their command the experi ence of the past and tbe personal connec tions with tbe societies in the different parts of the country. In June, 1S99, the North American Saen gerfest celebrated at its place of birth, Cincinnati, its golden jubilee, at which 120 societies and 2.757 singers appeared aad were offered cordial congratulations from all large associations of singers of this country snd likewise from the "General German Sacngcrbund" In Germany. The perfect rendering of tbe mass choruses formed the crown of the Jubilee festival of tbe union snd a worthy conclusion of the first half century of Its existence. In Cincinnati also tbe perfection of the permanent union made much progress. The constitution as adopted in Pittsburg did not stand the test in many ways, because several reforms, for a long time acknowl edged to be necessary, were disregarded and many laws only admissible for a loose organization were tn force in this perma nent association. Taking in consideration these ci cumstances, the president of the association, J. Hanno Deiler, submitted at Cinclnna'i a draft of a new constitution, which vt5 accepted without any material changes by the session of ths delegates of the union.
