TWO REPAIRERS ARRESTED Prisoners' Said to Hare (onfrutd Eminence of Organised Ran of Petty Thieves In Coaorll niaffs. In the arrest and conviction Saturday of two repalre-s at' Council liluffs, Special 'Aitent Vlxsard of the Unlor. Pacific, be lieves he has unearthed and broken up a fairly widespread conspiracy among certain Classes of the employes of the company to defraud It by means of a series of petty thefts. Sam Sorensen and Ed FltzRernld have, It Is stated, made confessions of the exist ence of a band of robbers, composed of railroad searchers and repairers, and the result of their confessions, will be, accord Ins; to Special Agent Vlzzard, the dismissal of ax least twenty employes from the ser vice of the Union Pacific today. It Is estimated that the thefts run to thousands of dollars JucIkIhk by the num ber of unexplalnuble claims for shorts that have bten had to be dealt with by the coin- pany. Mr. Vlzzard states that Sorenson has been In the service of the company for three years, lie Is a married man and It Waa upon this plea he was dealt with so leniently. This (jives an indicator! of the standing tilth the compauy of the other men who will be discharged and it la hoped by these premptory measures to break up an organization, which Mr. Vizzard de scribes as the Car Rubbers' "union," and which, he states, was well known by that name among the repairers and checkers of the Union Pacific Kallroad company. lorensen Is said to have furnished the names of other members of the gang, who however, are said to have left the city to avoid arrest. Thus far but a small quantity of the stolen goods have been recovered. Accord ing to the police, when Sorensen was ar rested a few days ago, his wife burned all the goods that had been left at his house. Sorensen, In view of the fact that he con fessed and furnished the officers with the ' names of other alleged members of the ' gang of car thieves, escaped with a fine of $10 and coats yesterday In police court. " Ed Fltsgerald, arrested at the same time, has been releasod on his own recoglzance and his case continued for thirty days. Judge Smith Gets Warm Reception Expresses Himself as Well Pleased with Political Outlook Over - the State. The return of , Congressman Walter I. Smith and his personal participation In the congressional campaign now being wged In the Ninth district has greatly increased the' confidence of his friends and sup porters In his renomlnatlon at the pri maries on June T. The enthusiastic re ception he has received wherever he spoke during the week just closed has prove a his opponents' tts the' congressional fight there are little grounds for anticipating that the progressives will even succeed in mak ing the vote between Judge Smith and At torney General Byers close. Judge Smith has Just finished the first Week of his speaking campaign and in peaking of It F. F. Everest, in charge of the Judge's campaign, said last evening: "Congveasmaa Smith has disproved all the disquieting stories circulated during his absence relative to his stand on the tariff, the secret eervtoe, the. so-called 'mileage grab' and the Shlloh monument contro versy. He has' given a positive denial of the various attacks made upon him by the LaFollette-Cummlns-Dolllver-Byers syndi cate and hasNproven wherever he has been that he has worked In the interest of his constituents, regardless of personal ag grandlxernent or the dictations of the ml' oorlty." Judge Smith. In. discussing the situation is he has found it over the district dur ' ' the last week said last evening: reception wherever I have been has yen genuinely hearty and very enthusias tic and with the support, which I have very reason to believe I shall receive. there is little question in my mlild but that every good republican will uphold the pres ent administration ana approve my canui dacy for re-uomlnatlon at the June prl' i! ia rips. A number of disquieting stories have been circulated over the district relative to my stand on the tariff question; the secret service controversy, ship subsidy bill and the Shlloh monument matter, as well as Questions of less importance. But I have nothing to conceal as to my stand on any of thnsa. I did not come home to make apology or excuse for anything I have done. I am prepared to defend every vote 1 cast and prove tnat wnaiever action took was done in the Interests of my con Btituents. I believe I have met every charge brought against me fairly and that my friends are satisfied their Interests have been guarded and promoted at Washington n ru wav noHHibia. In speaking of the general conditions and the principal issues of the campaign, Judge Smith said: "Incidentally, every man in the Ninth dis trict la dependent upon the farmers of southwest lows, and I find that the farm ers generally are well satisfied with pres ent conditions; inai mrj opposed to Canadian reciprocity or a lower tariff on food stuffs and produce. 1 he farmer was never more prosperous than ha is now, "u iiuvin...j ." i illeva the majority ? Vole for a continuance of the present ad ministration and that those dependent Spon the farmer will vote with him " Judge Smith will spend today with his family in this clty.jnd will leave tomor row morning for Greenfield, where he will .,i.ir in the aftomoon. FTom there he will go to' Fontanelle. where he will speak In the evening. On Tuesday evening ne win speak at Adair. On Wednesday afternoon ha will be tendered an Informal reception ! . nrtswold and on Wednesday evening ' will soeak at AUantlc. Present indications are that Judge Smith will not be in Coun ell Bluffs again until Just before the prl marles on June 7. but his friends here hope 1 that he will be able to arrange for a speak- ing date In Council JJluffs before the close of the primary campaign.

STATE HAS FEW FACTORIES Mr. Clifford Thnrne Compares Condi tions In Iowa with Those In Ad. Joining; States Lay Blame on Hatlronds. (From a Staff Correspondent.) PES MOINES, May 22.-(Speclal.) The people of lowa are beginning to discuss the probable census showing of the decrease In lowa population, or at best, a very slight Increase as compared with some other states. They are also giving some consid eration to the fact that all preliminary re ports Indicate the showing will not be very flattering as to the Increase of lowa manu facturing and shipping trade, it Is be lieved that the census will show a slight Increase in population of the cities and towns and a decrease In rural population. The business men of the cities nro dis posed to lay the blame for this condition upon the somewhat stringent regulation of the saloon business and to the unfavorable condition of the freight rate matters. In re gard to the latter there seems to be no question but that Iowa has been very back ward and that the freight rate situation Is not the best possible for the shipping In terests. Clifford Thome of Washington, la., who has given the matter a great deal of attention in recent years as the attorney ror the live stock shipping Interests, Is convinced that a general overhauling of freight rates is needed for this state. in tins connection he has given out a statement as follows, which clearly ex presses the prevailing view among farmers and shippers: Iowa's rank among Its sister states in re gard to manufactures Is hard to account ior. We would naturally expect some sim ilarity witn Kansas, Minnesota or VVIscon sin. And yet we find that the value of the manufactured products of each of those stales for the last year reported by the I nited Mates Department of Commerce and Labor, was from J:iS,(MJ0,XH) to JiriO.UOO.OOO greater tnan In lowa. Why Is this true? Population and railway facllties are two great essentials to the growth of manu factures. But we find that Iowa had from 200,000 to 600,000 greater population, and from 1,000 to 2,000 more miles of railway man eitner one or those states. The relative disproportion with other neighboring states is even greater. The population, According to the last census, was: In Iowa, 2,231,8f3; In Indiana, 2.5til.6i2; In Ohio, 4.1f7.545. and in Mlchlaan. 2.420.892: and Iowa had from 600 to 2.000 more miles or railway than anv of those states: vet the value of the manufactured uroducts of those states for the last year reported was rrom no to two per cent greater than in Iowa. Ohio manufacture exceeded those in lowa by over JMW.OOO.OOO. Every state adjoining lowa, except Ne braska and South Dakota, has a larger amount of manufactures every year than has Iowa; Minnesota, on the north, has almost double the volume; Missouri, on the south, has over two and a half times as much; Illinois, on the east, has nine times the amount. Something is radically wrong some place. Time for a t'hnnne. It Is time for this condition to change. One way to help bring about a change is to make a complete overhauling of our Inter state freight rates. Everything else being equal, the factory is going to locate where the rates are most advantageous. Rates are like rent, you have to keep paying them all the time. This, 1 am told, has caused scores of factories and Jobbing cen ters to be located Just across the river in Illinois, many of wmcn would otherwise go to Iowa. I propose a thorough and exhaustive In vestigation of the interstate freight rates affecting Iowa generally. 1 advanced this program In my statement February 12. Since then the present State Railroad com mission has offered no excuse whatever for neglecting this part of their duty which they have had since 1U07. Recently thou sands of rates affecting Iowa have been raised, and no effort whatever has been made by our state commission to test the reasonableness of these advances. This duty relative to Interstate rates Is speci fically provided fqr in sections 2120-A and li of the supplement to the code. 1 sin cerely believe that lowa Is Justified In de manding that the state commission shall undertake this task, it will mean some hard work, but It may prove .to bo of in calculable help to the future growth and prosperity of our state. This will make all that rate legislation we have been so pro foundly Interested In of some concrete tangible value to lowa. Campaign Is Quiet, The political campaign prior to the prl mary election Is proving one of the quietest on record. There is absolutely not a state Issue Involved and it Is recognized that every candidate for any state office is not only worthy, but capable, and there cannot be the slightest objection urged against him. Just at present the whole campaign Is apparently waiting for the decision of the two senators as to what they will do. They desire very much to return and spend at least a week in the state, but find it hard to get away from congress. In only four congressional districts are there sharp contests and practically only In two is the fight being made very hot. In the Seventh district, where Captain J A. T, Hull is fighting for a tenth nomina tion and Is opposed by Judge S. F. Prouty, who has three times before contested for the place, the work is being done thor oughly. Both candidates have done much speaking out In the district. Both have discussed the Issues of the day as made up at Washington. Both have discussed Speaker Cannon and the rules. One would vote for Cannon for speaker and the other would not. This Is as near an Issue as any one can get. In the Ninth district some spice was in jected the last week by the letter of Presl dent Taft which is being circulated In the Interest of Judge' Smith. The friends of Attorney General Byers have, however, drawn the record of the Shlloh commission on this matter and are showing that the president was not fully informed as to how the Shlloh matter waa handled by the Iowa commission. Byers and Smith are both campaigning hard. One peculiarity of the entire campaign is that while national matters have been dis cussed there has not been any discussion of President Taft personally nor of the adl ministration, not a word by a congressional or state candidate that could be construed as in any way areflectlng upon the presi dent and no disposition to raise any issue as to the loyalty of the Btate to the presl dent. In fact, all the candidates are friends of the president and loyal party men. Both Governor Carroll and Governor Garst nave been out in the state making a few speeches, but there Is hardly enough general interest to make it possible to war. rant general meetings.

Eva Lang and company In "Peter ran," a comedy In four acts; produced under the . direction of O. D. Woodward. The cast of characters: Peter Pan Miss Eva Ijng Mr. Darling Mr. Frank Dudley Mrs. Darling Miss Marie Hudson Wendy Moira Angela Darling Miss Kthel Valentine John Napoleon Darling Master Walter Yoorman Michuel Nicolas Darling Veta Bayne Lisa Marjory Payne Nana (nurse) Mr. Clinton Tustln Tinker Bell Herself Members of Peter's band Tootles Miss Judith Harl Nibs Miss Evelyn Monroe Slightly Miss Alice Bnlleutine Curly Miss Mnvme Williams First Twin Miss Kate Snell Second Twin Miss Gone Harold James Hook (the pirate captain) Mr. Theodore Frlebus Pirates Smeo , Mr. Lloyd Ingraham Starkey Mr. Ralph Marthy Cocco Mr. William Hayes Mulllns '....Mr. Clarence Austin Noodler Mr. Charles Grazier Redskins Great Big Little Panther Mr. Mlthers Tiger Lily Miss Kathryn Sheldon More than ordinary talk has preceded tho engagement which began last nlgrft because of intfrest In the players return ing hero from Kansas City, because of Interest in the play selected for the open ing and particularly because of consider able eagerness to see Miss Lang in the role of Peter. To this Interest was the testimony of a crowded house and the quite veraclcus reports of hundreds more turned away. Those fortunate enough to gain entrance were well rewarded. Not only is Miss I.ang remarkably successful, but the play as a whole in respect to staging and act ing Is pretty close to being the greatest achievement ever made locally In stock. Little need be said in praise of Mr. Barrle's fantaste. Peter and Wendy, Nurse Nana, Tinker Bell and the Pirate Captain have been voted into Immortal memory by all not wholly deaf to the call of childhood days and Peter's wish never to grow old will be realized. He is a boy, indeed, as Miss Lang plays him; boyish in carriage and voice tone, in mental attri bute, In fervor and braggadocio. Except for her and Miss Valentine as Wendy the play does not carry many opportunities for tho actors as Individuals. But as the Pirate Captain, Theodore Frlebus, a new leading man here, does show himself pos sessed of many of the qualities which go to make an excellent actor and his play ing in a less grotesque role will undoubt edly evoke great admiration. Miss v uieii tlne is In a part, more thankful. She Is a sweet, girlishly appealing little Wendy; a superb foil for Miss Lang's Peter. Miss Hudson, who is the bereft mother, shows a consistently steady gain in art, playing the scenes with the children with beauti fully delicate tenderness. Mr. Dudley is the husband. It is a foolish sort of part, wherein Barrle's satirical spirit nearly ran away with him. Mr. Dudley develops the comedy of the role to advantage. Another old friend, Lloyd , Ingraham, has little to do this week. He Is cast as Smee of the nlrate crew. The real child actors of the company are rather better than the aver age of their years. .

MAY TAKE UP EVANGELIST WORK DlncusHlna- Polities, the Kehraakan Predicts If Democrats Act Wisely They May Elect Neat I'rcMldent. NEW YORK, May 22.-Wllllam Jennings Bryan was a passenged on the White Star line steamer Cedrlc yesterday. So was Judge George Gray of Delaware, upon whom the anti-Bryan democrats tried to center at the Denver convention. Mr. Bryan Is on his way to the International missionary conference at Edinburgh und Judge Gray is enroute T. j:;iK-ue as one of the arbitrators In the Newfoundland fisheries dispute. Both of these dis tinguished democrats were charry about discussing politics, except in the most gen eral way. Mr. Bryan Is enthusiastic over the re. Ilglous outlook. It is said that it Is his Intention to devote mere of his time in the future to religious work; that he Intends, In fact, to become rrore or loss a lay cvengellst. As to his plans alonn this line Mr. Bryan would not talk freely. Ho did fay, however, that the rellirlous ouilnnk the world over was never brighter. Looks for (irent Revival. The Christian men of the world." Mr Bryan declared with enthusiasm, "have not been aroused to the necessity of spreading ne vital truths of Christianity throughout he w hole world in past generations as thrv are today. I look to see a gieat world-wide religious revival which will have the most far-reaching effect upon the lives of th people. Practically every problem which confronts the civilized world can be solved and solved right by the practical applica tion or the great fundamental principles of e-nnsuanity In private and Dubllc life. Those questions will be solved "tn Just the proportion that these principles are so applied." 'The great laymen's missionary move ment which recently culminated In the Chi cago meeting the early part of this month, the gathering of representatives from the various churches from practically all the countries of the world, which I am on mv way to attend are Indications of this great revival. There is a growing disposition evidently to sink differences of sect in the doing of the great work in which all churches are interested, which is hm,n,i to have a wonderful Influence on the his tory of the world within the next few decades. To Make World Better. "This movement will make for the bet terment of public and private life; it will exert a potential Influence for nea.ee h- tween nations and will make the world a better place to live In. You Bee, I am an optimist." Mr. Bryan will make a number of ad dresses of a religious character In Great Britain and it is probable he will speak at different points on the continent before his return to tnls country. Mr. Bryan was confident the democrats would control the next house of representa tives and that, if they acted wisely, they had a most excellent chance to win the next national election. When asked for an expression as to can didates, the sage of Lincoln smiled and said: "It's too early yet to talk about candi dates. The democratic party Is particularly fortunate in having so many good men to choose, from at this time.'- "Just which one will be chosen by the next convention it is impossible now to predict. It will depend largely upon the course of events within the next year or two. I am sure, however, that the party will choose a man for whom it will be a pleasure for good American to vote." Mr. Bryan had a good word to say for a number of the men whose names have been mentioned in connection with the democratic nomination. Plenty of Timber. " "Governor Harmon is a fine man," he said. "So is Governor Marshall of In diana. Governor Folk is a good man and well qualified for any office in the gift of the people. Mayor Gaynor of New York has made a brilliant record and Is a very able man. Judge Gray Is of presidential timber. As a matter of fact I think the task of the next democratic convention is going to be one of selection and with so many men of high character and ability to choose from, the task is going to be no easy one." Judge Gray had little to say. He had not been following politics very closely, he declared, arid could not therefore express an opinion which would have value. "Governor Judson Harmon of Ohio has been mentioned as a strong candidate for president What do you think of him?" he was asked. "Governor Harmon is a fine man," said ioEi 9 This Sale Which is Under Stato Super vision Will Tako Place at Burley, Idaho 2 This sale embraces Minadoka project.

VIEWS ON DIVORCE AND POLITICS Neutral on Suffrage, but Woman Mho Would Not Vote Should lie t Innaed as Had f'ltlsen. ' NEW YORK, May 23 (Special Tele grnm.) "I feel the utmost sympathy for Queen Alexandra, for It Is a terrible blow when one's beloved helpmate passes away, and the same lovo' nnd devotion fills the heart of king and queen as the heart of tho lowest menial." Mrs. Benjamin Harrison, widow of the lute President ' Harrison, made tho fore- going utterance today on the eve of her departure for Europe, where she and het ln-yeiir-old daughter. Ellrnbeth Harrison, vi". remain for two years. Mrs. Harrison goe;j iihroud that her daughter may be edu cated In Europe, and In doing so she fol lows the example of thp other widow of at American president, Mrs. Urover Cleve land, who Is also In Europe, where ther children are being educated. Before sailing today Mrs. Harrison dis cussed a number of topics, for she takes a keen Interest In American affairs and is a ready talker on national politics as well as society. lllah Cost of I.lvlna. "The dreadful high cost of living Is not driving mo out of America," said she, with a smile, "although It has become one of our biggest problems. I certainly agree with James J. Hill that Americans are too extravagant. Everyone apparently wants to own a steam yacht and an automobile, no matter whether no can afford It or net, and, unfortunately, ho cannot afford, but tries to hide his poverty. Sooner or later Americans must come to learn a standard of economy. The question seems strictly one of American solution, for in Europe I find ono can live twice as comfortably and surrounde-d by much more luxury than In the I'nlted States on one-half the money It costs here. "Upon the suffrage question I am neutral, although I have always been In terested In politics, and much of my life has been spent In a political atmospheie, The American woman must realise that enfranchisement imposes a duty as well as a right and that duty must be ful- filled. Tho man who doesn't exercise his right to vote is called a bad citizen; yie woman who would not vote after getting the ballot would necessarily be classed in the same category. Personally 1 would make no effort whatsoevtr to ac quire the ballot, although I am not an antl-suffraglst. I am naturally not lnte,--ested in the question. ' The. women of to day have more power than they realise and this was brought forcibly to my at tention only a day or so ago when Presi dent Taft, lit a public address, said that Mrs. Taft was the real president of the United States." On the Divorce Cuestlon. Mrs. Harrison was asked if she waa a student of the divorce question which, has become ont of America's most notor ious institutions, and she said: "Naturally I have views upon It. To my mind the divorce might be, classed, in some degree, together with that dther evil which I mentioned, the high cost of living. They are both evils and the. sooner they are abolished, the better it will be for American aoclety, .So many bizarre propaganda and queer tenets of life are springing up that 'create divorce that the question seems to be more tangled as time goes by, rather than get ting clarified as to solution. A national uniform law would doubtless assist, but the sooner men and women recognize that the old fashioned ideals are the highest and best and purest, the sooner the di vorce evil will die. "I am going abroad with rhy daughter to educate, her there, because I believe any man or woman who spends a year or more in a foreign country comes back a better American. Even amid the culture, refinement and luxury of Eurqpe, I love the United States better and recognize the qualities of my home most distinctly. Nothing is so good for the boy or girl as the broadening Influence of foreign travel." Mrs. Harrison said she hoped to meet Mrs. Cleveland abroad, as a warm friend ship existed between them.
