DYNAMITE FOUND IN SCHOOL 'XTIcers Are Still Gathering Clara and Bending Their Efforts to Round Up the Fourth Bandit. TAFT PRAISES REGULAR ARMY (Continued from First Page.) "We have discovered that less than $300 In money was secured by the robber who held up the Union Pacific Overland Lim ited iralii,"-' said W. T. Canada, chief of the I'nlon Pacific's secret service. "There were papers In ' mining stocks and other form. of securities, but not over that amount of catih.". Four sticks of dynamite were found In the loft of the Brown Park school In South Omaha Monday morning by Janitor Benlz, which Is an Evidence that the train robbers were prepared for all .emergencies. The sticks of dynamite were hidden In a se cluded part of the loft and were discovered by the merest accident. These have been turned over to the federal authorities. The pbstofflce Inspectors are busy assort ing over the rifled mail and getting It in such shapes as possible, for Identification. This work vs In charge of Inspector Ran dall. Thus far nothing has developed that will Indicate that the robbers secured any great amount of money. -Xt. W. Woods, the leader of the holdup suspects, ha again been Identified, this time by a Fremont lad, - who saya that Woods asked him for some matches at Fre mont the day preceding the night of the holdup. He was not sure whether he had ever seen Torgensen and Gordon, the other two prisoners Chief Canada of tho Union Pacific was with the lad when he Identified Woods, having brojsht him to Omaha from Fre mont Just for-the purpose. It is supposed that Woods wanted the matches for lighting candles used by the bandits after Llity had secured their booty and were hiding it. Warner la Positive. United States Marshal Warner says: "Although I am positive we have a sure case against Woods, Torgensen and Gordon and i can eonvlet them on the evidence, mostly circumstantial, now In our posses sion, we look for still inore developments that will greatly assist the prosecution. Things are turning up all the time that are Important" 'All the mall clerks who were on the train held up by the bandits have now identified one or another of the three suspects held by the .government authorities. Sunday morning June Corey of Council Bluffs, one of the mall clerks went to the county jail with Marshal Warner and iden tified them, i ii. ii jiutfliive of Woods," he said, "and fairly ,um wf Torgensen, but I cannot say thai inuuli about Gordon." Cltrka Hush, Miles and Ryan Identified the prisoners Monday, between them man . aging to . Identify . each one, although all three were not sure of each suspeot. This leaves Woods, Torgensen and Gordon fully Identified, for at least several of the clerks are sure of each man. Woods being the one about whom the Identification la most certain. The three prisoner are kept in close con finement. They have made no statement, Other than a denial, slnoe being arrested. That Torgensen may have been connected In some way with government Investiga tions befroe this time Is deemed probable by a local member of the secret service. The latter states that he believes the secret service has had dating with Torgensen In past years, supposedly In counterfeiting cases. .... The officers say that prior to the hearing of the suspects before United States Com missioner Anderson today they hope to uncover more evidence and arrest the fourth man. Kemper,' H.mpMil Buckingham, AU Kinds of Plating. pare a body of professional soldiers, well trained, to officer an army, and numerous enough at the opening of the civil war to give able commanders to both sides of that internecine strife. "On the side of the north many of the officers were drafted to command volun teer troops from the states. While the reg ular army, aggregating about W,000 at the opening of the war, was Increased to about 26,000 during Its first year. More than half this army was engaged In the battle of Gettysburg. Time does not permit me to mention the names of the heroes of the regular army whose blood stained this his toric field and whose sacrifice made the union victory possible." "With my intimate knowledge of the army, their high standard of duty, their efficiency as soldiers, their high character as men, I have seised this opportunity to come here to testify the pride whloh the nation should have In Its regular army, and to dedicate this monament to the predeces sors of the present regular army, on a field on which they won undying glory and perpetual gratitude from the nation which they served. They had not the local association; they had not the friends and neighbors of the volunteer foroas to see to It that their deeds of- valor were properly recorded and the value of their services suitably noted in the official record by legislative and congressional action, and they now have to depend upon the truth of history, and in the cold, calm retrospect of the war as it was, to secure from con gress this suitable memorial of the war In the saving of the country which they wrought here. . Always Loyal to Dntyv "All honor to the regular army of the United States. Never In Its history has It has a stain upon its escutcheon. With no one to blow its trumpet, with no local feeling or pride to bring forth Its merits, quietly and as befit a force organized to maintain civil Institutions and subj.ot al ways to the civil control. It ha gone on doing the duty which It was ltg to do, ao ceptlng without a murmur the dangers of war, whether upon trackless stretches of our western frontier, exposed to arrows and the bullets of the Indian, or in the Jungles or rice paddies of the Philippines; on the hills and In the valleys about San tiago In Cuba, or In yie campaigns of the civil war Itself, and It has never failed to make a record of duty done that should satisfy the most exacting lover of his country. "It now become my pleasant duty to dedicate this monument to the memory of the regular soldier of the republlo who gave up their lives at Gettysburg, and who contributed In a large degree to the vic tory of those three fateful days In the country's history." Dickinson Presents shaft. Standing on the battlefield where vir tually was decided the sanguinary con flict between the north and south, Secre tary of War Jacob M. Dickinson, a south ern man by birth, turned over to the Gettysburg National Park association on behalf of the people of the Untted States the handsome monument. "The overthrew of tho south, a always occurs after a fierce war, when the de feated are helpless, and 'the more con servative of the victors for a while are dominated by the fiercest and most ag gressive leaders," said Mr. Dickinson, "was Immediately followed by sufferings and humiliations that for a long time admitted of nothing but lamentation over a result that could bring such woes. Keen and bitter as they were, time and a manifesta tion of a more generous sentiment, brought a mitigation of sorrow and a clearer vision of the tremendous evils to all the states which would certainly and Immediately have followed upon the establishing f the southern confederacy. 1 "Its very cornerstone was of lamlnea, pre ordained to dlslntregatlon. Commercial and other conditions would as sure as fate have brought about a dissolving confederacy. What would have come from these, we can only conjecture, but it is well within the bounds of reason to assert that the good would have been dwarfed In com partson with the evil. "There would liave been a hate and rivalry between north and south as in tense as that between France and Ger many, with a border line far more ex tended, people less amenable , to control! and causes for friction more numerous A cordon of forts would have stretched from the Atlantic to the western border of Texas. Army and naval establishments would have devoured the substance of the people, and militarism would have domlna ted civil government. The civilization of all the states would have developed on different and more critical lines. It may be that in the logic of events the war had to come that It was the fierce, cruel and inevitable crucible which was to fulfill destiny that of making us, as It did, stronger and harmonious people, united with a solid front, to meet the great prob lems that now confront our race. "We are no wiser nor more patriotic than were the men who were conspicuous In that great drama. As we look backward our vision Is not obscured by the tern pestuous atmosphere which surrounds them, and we stand upon a different pin' nacle in the march of history. They passed through the valley of the shadow of death and we, by their trials, have attained to a mount of wider vision than was per mitted to them. "God grant that in ' the great national drama which act by act, 'a blend of mirth and sadness', a mixture of comedy and tragedy, Is always in progress, developing day by day thost things which will shape the destiny of our country, we may enact our part with the grandeur, heroism and patriotism which they Illustrated. Patriotism of Bonth. "At this day there are but few, if any, dispassionate thinkers in the north who question the patriotism of those of the south who, on this stricken field, set an example of American valor that will for ever thrill the minds and hearts of man kind In all countries and in all ages. And at this day there are In the south but few, If any, who would not turn swiftly with sentiments of abhorrence from any sug gestion that it would have been better for the south If It had succeeded In estab lishing an Independent government. And this 1 true even of the survivor of those who, on this very ground. " 'Saw a gray gigantic ghost Receding through the battle cloud, And heard across the tempest loud The death cry of a nation.' " "With one mind and heart the people of this great country," said Mr. Dickinson In conclusion, "looking to the future with no rivalry, but in generous patriotism, and cherishing no hate, but only the glor ious memories of this bloody field, can with heary accord proclaim in the language of a southern poet comemoratlve of this very struggle. " 'Fold up the banners. Smelt the guns; Iove rules. Her gentler purpose runs A mighty mother turns in tears The pagee of her battle years Lamenting all her fallen ones.' " Two Hundred Boys fluey.

LINCOLN, May 31. The State Board of Assessment met this morning with Gov ernor Shallenberger, Land Commissioner Cowles and State Auditor Barton present. but nothing was done save to adjourn until Wednesday morning. Mr. Brian and Mr. Junkln got to the meeting just as it adjourned. Mr. Junkln wanted a meeting this afternoon, but as x the governor de sired to take part In the Memorial day exercises the date wa set for Wednesday morning. The secretary of state has a bunch of motions to make, or at least one, but until the board gets together he will not give out the substance of it. Last year Mr. Junkln moved to raise the Burlington and Governor Sheldon then moved to raise the Union Pacific, each making the second to the other's motion by agreement, but both motions were lost. So it is presumed Mr. Junkln this year will again go after the Burlington, but with what success remains to be seen. Had the board gone to a showdown on the motion of the governor last Monday to Increase the Northwestern the motion would have carried and probably all of the roads would hsve received a boost, but the longer the board holds off from voting, It is prediced, the less chance there Is for the Northwestern to get Its boost. It Is said that under the plan of assess ment proposed by Mr. Polleys of the M. & O. that the Northwestern would still come in for a boost, even though the Omaha road is a part of the Northwestern system. Under the law, however, it Is claimed Dy some of the rallrosd men that the Polleys' system could not be used In Ne braska, Inasmuch as the statute sets out what shall be considered by the board In arriving at its conclusion. Memorial Day nt Capital. The graves of dead heroes were deco rated with flowers today by veterans of the civil war and the community observed the occasion by the closing of public of- nces and the closing of a number of bus! ness houses. In the morning the soldier of the Grand Army of the Republlo posts and the women of the relief corps marched to the ceme tery and after placing their tokens on the graves of comrades they went back to the hall, where the women served a dinner for tholr husbands and comrades. At the auditorium in the afternoon w E. Andrews, auditor of the United 8tates treasury, delivered the address, and a set program was carried out. This con. slsted of the bugle call by O. C.

Can Barton Carry Decreet Auditor Barton will attend the com mencement exercises of the Peru Normal school. He received his higher education at that Institution. The governor Is also expected to put in an appearance there and will deliver a speech to the students. The auditor will deliver no speech, he says. When State Auditor Barton leaves Peru, where he went to attend a meeting of the Mullenberg State Normal board, he will In all probability carry with him, tucked away in hi pocket, a degree from the Peru normal school. Mr. Barton's name was suggested to the new board at Kearney at Its recent meeting, as a fit one to be honored by a degree. Some one asked Superintendent Crabtree what the auditor has ever done which would entitle him to take his place along with the others who had been thus honored. It was brought out that the auditor had written a poem while attending the Peru normal which, as a classic, has never yet been surpassed in all history, and as he has grown to manhood since then snd has gone through a campaign without It being known, it was the Idea of the board that he certainly Is entitled to the degree. Incidentally, the new board has under consideration an honorary degree fur Judge Letton, who is also a product of the Peru normal. Trust nnd Savin. Bank.

ALLOTTING WORK WELL ALONG Geological Survey nt Dakota Reser vation Is Being- Made for Pos sible Coal Lands. PIERRE, 8. D., May 81.-(Speclal.) Al- lotlng Agent J. C. Deets, Is down from the reservation and reports work well along, the force at the present time be ing up with the geological servey, which Is being mado to determine if any of the lands should be reserved as coal lands. This force Is busily at work on the west ern part of the reserve, and just what their findings will be is not at present known. But it Is a certainty that there are coal Indications at many places on the reserve, the only question being as to whether the deposits are of enough value to hold them for settlement with the rest of the reservation at the time of opening. On account of delay the appraisement force did not get Into the field until a few days ago, and their work will be slightly delayed on that account, but every effort Is being made to get everything cleared up to allow the drawing to be made the coming fall, which would allow settlement next spring.

In some cases the changes which will be required to bring the forms Into compliance with the law ars so slight that they oan easily be modified to meet the demands, but In other it will require the preparation of a complete new policy form to write a rink which will be in eoraplance with the law.
