For his visit to Council Bluffs Governor
Albert B. Cummins, who was greeted last
night by an audience which filled th New
theater, had evidently doffed his habili
ment of peace and donned hia fighting
clothes. Although suffering from a sever
cold and plainly showing the effect of the
strenuous campaign which he ha waged
In hi candidacy for United States senator,
the chief executive of the state irucceeded
In keeping the close attention of hi large
audience, which apparently was In com
plete accord with him, while he meroileealy
flayed, with that power and gift of epeech
for which he la noted, thoae opposing hi
ambition to represent the commonwealth of
Iowa In the enate of the United State
as successor to William 9- Allison.
The manner In which h had been de
nounced by Senator J. P. DolHver at Dav
enport Monday had aroused Governor
Cummin and when he arrived In Council
Bluffs yesterday morning from Cedar
Rapids, where he spoke Monday night, he
determined to take advantage of the op
portunity presented by the meeting at the
opera house last night to pay back to his
opponents something of the same kind.
And the governor did ao, and. without
D. C. Chase Speaks.
Governor Cummins was acconjpanled . to
Council Bluffs by D. C. Chase of Webster
City, who waa one of the speakers. On
arriving at the Grand tibtel the
party was met by R. B. Wallace,
president of the Taft-Cummlns Pro
gressive Republican club of Pottawat
tamie county, and other leading supporter
of the governor. DurUig the greater part
of the day Governor Curnmina waa In con
ference with the leadera of the progressive
wing of the republican party, the con
ference being held In the office of Attorney
G. H Scott, candidate for the republican
nomination for state senator In opposition
to Colonel C. G. Saunders.
An Incident occurred while Governor
Cummins was talking with a number of
friends In the rotunda of the hotel . after
he had eaten breakfast, that-showed the
state of mind the governor was In. One of
the party happened to mention Senator
Doiliver's name. "I said that this was my
last campaign," said tha governor, while
his face, which had before been wreathed
with a smile, assumed : a changed and
hardened expression, "but I have changed
my mind. I'm going to be In one more,
and that la when Dolliver cornea up for re
election In four years. I feel very good
yet, and I believe there is ' at "least one
more good fight In me after this one and
I think I will enjoy It, too."
- Governor la Warm.
Opening, Governor Cummins proceeded
at once to refer to the list of question
which- had been prepared by George - S.
Wright of this city' for him1 to answer.
"I ought , to appear before a . Council
Bluffa audience with fear and trembling."
aid the governor, "but I da not find my
knees shaking and my pulse 1 beating
After referring to the absence from the
audience of Mr. Wright, the governor said
he had no Intention of answering all the
questions. He said he would answer the
first question which he read and which
was "When you aald Senator Dolliver. waa
not telling the truth about the Torbett
letter and offered $1,000 if he could pro
duce such a letter, had you forgotten
writing It or did you think It had. been
lost?" "I will answer, thia question,"
said the governor, as he raised hia voice
so that every word ahould be heard dis
tinctly throughout the entire auditorium.
"I did not forget the letter I had written
to Mr. Torbett, but I had forgotten that
there was a person bo vile and ao ma
licious In the whole world as to put the
construction placed upon It by the sup
porter of Senator Allison. There was
not a vestige of a pledge or promise ia
respect to the campaign we are now en
gaged in."
The governor then proceeded to pay hia
respects to the local newspaper and Its
publisher In no uncertain words. He paid
an eloquent tribute to Prealdent Rooae
velt. Saying that' he believed In the majority
rule, Governor Cummin declared: "If my
opponent receives one more vote than I
receive in the primary next Tuesday, he
shall thereafter have all the support and
strength 'that I can give htm In aecurlng
the unanimous vote of the next general
assembly. If, on the other hand and I
tell you with all confidence it will be on
the other hand I receive a majority of
the vote I Bhall ask th pledge of every
member and prospective member of the
assembly that he will carry out the w lanes
of th majority aa expressed by the peo
ple of this great commonwealth at th
Marrlaao Ltcenae.

Conference Committee Affrees Upon
Tentative Emergency Measure.
Proapeet that Home Will Pass It
at Once, bnt Senate May Delay
It for Day or Tvro It
WASHINGTON, May 27. The senate and
house conferees on the currency bills held
three meetinga yesterday and at the third,
which did not adjourn until 6:30 o'clock,
reached a tentative agreement on which
will be baaed the compromise agreement
which the republican members of the con
ference hope to reach at an adjourned
meeting tomorrow forenoon. At the ' con
clusion of the final meeting this afternoon
the probability of the reporting of a com
promise bill to the two houses of con
gress waa much stronger than at any pre
vious time this session. Indeed, it was con
sidered a certainty.
The following are the main points of the
understanding that haa been reached:
The reserve provisions in the VreeJand
bill, calling for a retention of 26 per cent
In central reserve cities, and 15 per cent
in other reserve cities, is raduced to a
straight 10 per cent reserve whhout refer
ence to classification of cities.
A higher rating is given to state and
municipal bonda than to other securities
upon which an emergency currency may
be taken out by banks. That is to say,
county, atate and municipal bonds will be
valued at not to exceed 90 per cent of their
market, value, and all other bonds at not
to exceed 70 per cent of their market value,
both without regard to whether they are
offered as security for additional circu
lation under the national clearing house
plan or under the Individual bank, bond
security plan.
The amount of circulation Issuable on a
commercial paper basis is limited to 40 per
cent of the capital of the applicant bank
Instead of 100 per cent as provided in the
Vreeland bill. , . -
The redemption fund requirement of 6
ner cent under the preaeni ia is increased
to 10 per cent for all emergency currency
taken out.
The total amount of emergency currency
issuable is confined within a maximum of
JduO.uuO.OOO aa provided by the Aldrich bill.
A time limit of three yeara ia placed upon
the life of the bill.
Bill Will Be Reported.
In, thia preliminary and purely tentative
welding of the Aldrich and Vreeland bills
Into a modified measure, comprising the
principal feature of each and making It
possible to obtain an emergency currency
under two distinct and radically different
form of application and security, several
of the minor details of flrjanclal machinery
are not yet fully settled. They will be
taken up for consideration and disposition
when it has become a settled fact that a
bill Is to be reported by the conference.
Meantime, the working draft of the com
promise bill, as outlined in the foregoing
paragraphs, will be printed tonight at the
government printing office, so that the re
publican conferences may have the text
before them when they meet at 9:30 tomor
row morning to decide upon the attitude
they will take and maintain in the full
conference, to be held immediately after
ward, and in which the democratic membera
of the conference will, for the first time,
If a bill is reported out of the conference
tomorrow It will be passed by the house
tomorrow. Notices were sent out tonight
by order of Speaker Cannon, for every re
publican member to be In hie seat at 11
o'clock, when It la expected the compromise
bill will be reported.
Intimates of Speaker Cannon asserted to
day that In the event that a bill along the
lines of the proposed compromise 1 brought
In, It could be passed by the house after an
hours' debate. This remark Is Interpreted
to mean that the republican majority of the
house la prepared to accept whatever the
conference may recommend, but It Is not
believed that the democrats of the house
will be denied the privilege of some ex
pression of their views.
Senate May Delay Measure.
The conditions are so different in the
senate that another situation may be en
countered there. Still, today's develop
ments have been such as to Justify the
statement that these bills will not be held
up In the senate for ao long a time as
seemed probable when the compromUa
first began to receive attention Then
the fear was that the measure might be
talked to death.
Strenuous representation aa to the possi
ble effect on business of a failure by con
gress to enact financial legislation before
adjournment haa had th effect of caus
ing several democratic senators to agree
not to discuss the bill st length In case It
la reported. Republican senators have
ben scllv In spreading thl propaganda
and they have not been without Influence.
Those who have been won over will con
lent themselves with casting their votes
against the measure. Other would, how
ever, insist on discussing the bill and ex
plaining their objections at length. There
are probably half a dozen of this class,
and It Is Impossible to estimate how much
time they would consume. They asert,
however, that, seriously opposed to the
provision of the Vreeland bill as they
are, they would still not enter upon any
proceeding that might be characterized
as a filibuster and Say that, after express
ing their views and forcing an explanation
from the supporter of the bill, they would
let It go to a vote. The time neceasary
for this proceeding none will undertake
to say, and estimates range all the way
from one day to ' one month. It seems
probable now that from a week to two
weeks would be required in the senate.
The democratic senators who opposed
the comprise realize that they would
be seriously handicapped In any effort
at such tactics as would postpone for
any great length of time the vote on
the bill by the absence of a large per
centage of their members. So many dem
ocratic senators have recently left for
their homes that they realize they would
not be able to make an effectual fili
buster if inclined to engage in one. There
were, Indeed only fourteen democratic
senators in the city today, and it waa
stated that while the absentees had been
requested by telegraph to return it was
doubtful whether they would obey the
summons, as most of them had gone away
intending to remain. A number of re
publican senators are also out of the city,
and it 1b apparent that there there will
be great difficulty in maintaining a
quorum in the senate if the final disposi
tion of the bill be long postponed.
It ia estimated that congress could ad
journ 'four hours after the adoption by
the senate and the house of a compro

Do that, and you'll have little need of

But when yo grow old, and the bowels,
