LONG live King Ak-Sar-Ben 3Q1X.
Damo Rumor tells nie, on perfectly good authority, that the
next king has not yet boon told of the great honor In store for him.
Tho commltteo of Board of Governors who have decided this mo
mentous question for the populace of the land of Qulvora have decided not
lonly to eurprlso tho people, hut will also surprise the new king.
There Is one alarming difficulty about this surprise: the king must
'have shoes suitablo to royalty made of white kid. Now the difficulty Is to
find out the correct size for his royal highness. Tho shoes have to bo rondo
,to order, as they must be unusually fine and must match tho costume. .Last
(year his royal highness had to walk the entire length of the Coronation hall
wearing white kid shoes Just ono slzo too small.
This year they are taking quito a chance, ub the king's shoes are whlto
ysandals, to bo laced qulto high, and tho only thing to do was to guess at the
slze.
Tho king is to bo told Thursday evening of tho great honor in storo for
'him, and tho next evening" he will bo crowned, so ho will havo but ono ovon
Ing In which to suffor stago fright. Thero will be ono consolation. This
year tho king and queen are to be brought in on litters curried tiy stalwart
Barbarians who havo proved to bo loyal subjects.

SYNOD TO BE A LIYELY ONE
Nebraska Presbyterians Have Im
portant Matters Coining Up, .(
MODERATOR STONE TO BE HEBE
Of Chief Intercut la the Foaslble
More to Itesiore ItelleTne Col
lege to the Stntns of
' SynodlCnl School.
The Nebraska synod of the Presbyter
Ian churoh, which convenes October 19
at North church, Omaha, Is expected to
develop several matters of unusual In
terest tp these church folk.
In tho first place It will be attended
by some of the denomination's most emi
nent men, chief among whom will be Dr.
John Timothy Stone, 1 '.stor of the Fourth
Presbyterian church of Chicago and mod
erator, or official head of the church at
large, and Joseph Ernest McAfee of New
York City, associate secretary of the
Board of Home Missions. Both these
men will addres the synod. Mr. McAfee's
presence. It Is said, will especially sig
nify the Important place Nebraska Pres
bytertanlstn holds In the aggreslve cause
of home missions.
Indications are said now to be for a
very Interesting contest on the election
of moderator of tha synod. Two men
are In the field, not of their own motion,
but on thnt of friends, Rev. Alexander
Corky, the pastor-author of Wayne, and
Rev. Mr. Campbell of Wakefield, who Is
a comparatively recent acquisition from
the Methodist ministry. Ills newness In
Presbytirlanlsm as compared with the
life-long affiliation ' of Rev. Mr. Corky
is urged by some aa a retson for pre
ferring the latter.
' The most dellcnto matter of business
which the synodlcal delegates expect to
come before them Is the reopening of
tho synodlcal college proposition.
Only, One Now.
Pursuant to action of the synod a few
years ago, Hastings college Is maintained
as the synodlcal school of the state.
Bellevuo used to be and Its friends are
said to be anxious to have It restored to
such auspices, proposing to divide the
state for tho purposes of such support be
twoen Hastings and Bellevue. Those who
think the state should maintain but one
synodlcal college oppose this, pointing
out that under present arrangements
Bellevue receives a good deal of Presby
terian support in Nebraska.
The contest for moderatorshlp Is said
to havo a bearing on the college situa
tion. Rev. Mr. Campbell Is regarded as
the special candidate of many most ac
tively urging Bellevue'a claims before
the synod, although Dr. Corkey, whose
name Is Included in the faculty at Belle
vue as a lecturer on sociology, is not, of
courso, regarded as In any way un
friendly to Bellevue.
The Beo has been advised of the pos
sibility of Dr. Alexander Mackenzie, sec
retary of tho Presbyterian college board,
coming out from New York to aid in
Bellevue'a "Cause, as he is a special friend
of that college. This, howevor, seems
uncertain at present.
According to some the whole college
question may be withheld. This, it Is
known, would meet the wishes of many
who are anxious to avoid anything tend
ing toward dissension between colleges
highly esteemed generally in the synod.-
Another posslblo development has to
,do with restoring the aUto to the basfs
of A synodlcal superintendent. Since the
advancement of Rev. W. If. Koarns from
that office to district field secretary with
a territory comprising this and other
northwestern states, Nebroaska Pres
byterians 'have boen Without a, separate,
synodlcal superintendent arid some faVor
returning to the former basis, Inasmuch
aa theIrwork la said to -require' and Jus
tify It. The opposition to this change
rests somewhat upon the ground of extra
expenae Involved, It Is Understood.
Whether anything will come of the mat
ter at this session of the synod is not now
apparently very certain.

Moliler Explains
the Position of
the Union Pacific
Relative to the controversy over title
to the lands" wllhlri the. right-of-way of
the Union Pacific, actlnc under orders
of the executive cdmmlttee of the road,
President A. L. Mohler has issued a cir
cular, setting forth the plans which the
compahy proposes to pursue. In this
circular President Mohler says:
"It has been brought to tho attention
of this company that a misapprehension
exists In some localities as to tho con
tentions and policy of the company con
cerning the titles to lands held or
claimed to be held in private ownership
within the limits of the rights of way
granted to Its predecessor companies by
acts of congress. The company Intends
to defend its title to the full extent of
tho right-of-way so granted against tres
passers and persons claiming possession
only by virtue of the operation of stat
utes of limitation. But, notwithstanding
the decisions of the United States su
preme court to tho effect that the title
to tho right-of-way was of such a char
acter that It could not be alienated by tho
grantee, the company does not Intend ro
assert title to any land's within the limits
of the right-of-way grunted by con
gress which havo voluntarily been con
veyed by this company or Its predecessor
companies, but intends to recognize the
validity of all titles so acquired.
"In any case In 'which a property
owner, deriving title o land within the
limits of tho right-of-way granted by
congress under conveyance of this com
pany or Its predecessor companies, t re
quires or will be benefited by a confirma
tion from this company of the title In
tended to be conveyed by such earlier
deed of conveyance, a quit-claim deed
will be given by this company, upon pay
ment only of a nominal charge to cover
tho expense ,of preparing and executing
the deed. Applications therefore to A. L.
Mohler, .president, Omaha, Neb., will re
ceive prompt attention.
"This company, however, reserves the
right to determine in each caso whether
the facts bring the case within the
policy hereby announced and entitle the
applicant to such special relief."
BELLEVUE DEBATERS
ARE GETTING INTO LINE
The first meeting of debating chthusl
aats at Bellevuo was called Wednesday by
Prof. Cross, who has charge of that de
partment this year. The meeting was
well attended and keen competition for
places Is expected thlB year. Although
Johnson, Ohman and Bonderson of last
year's teajo will not bo on the Job. new
material Is to be had in abundance and
such enthusiasm as was shown is bound
to make a winning team.
Smith, the leader of last year's winning
negative team, la back In fine form to
lead his team again to victory. Webb,
Brantt, Cleveland and Findley, all ex
perienced men, are ready to put up a
strong bid for place. Ono of the most
promising of tho new students is Miss
Anna Johnson, who will pit 'her throe
years' experience acquired at Council
Bluffs High school, against the best male
talent In the state.
Bellevue'a principal foes In 1914 will bo
Cotner and Doane, but Other minor con
testa will be arranged with several other
schools. V
Recruit With Glass
Eye Would Enlist
The stranger entered tho navy recruit
ing office. "Want to enlist, mister," the
stranger said, when he was noticed.
"Good nnd strong worked in lumber
camps, loaded cars, worked In Icehouses
-good and strong." He took a seat
and lor a moment mentally saw himself
on tho way to the San Francisco train
ing station. In tho meanwhile he in
tently regarded the chart that hangs on
the wall. When asked to read tho letters
he read with remarkablo speed. In fact,
with such remarkablo speed that the
recruiting officers marveled and changed
the chart.
The stranger read with the same light
ning speed, but the letters were not In
tho samo position as on the former chart.
He was not aware of that, however, and
went right ahead, reading without hesita
tion letters that were not there. It was
then noticed that one of tho stranger's
eyes was not. Examination proved tho
eye to bo glass. He had the notion that
a man must squint one eyo when, shoot
ing and he said ho could Just go ahead
and squint tho "game" eyo. But tho re
cruiting officers could not see It that

Ministers Laugh
at Joke oja Them
While some of the ministers who ate
lco cream flavored wIthYum ut their
Antl-.Saloon league Olnncr at tho Uni
versity club Monday noon, nre a trifle
peeved at the thought that someone fed
them such a mixture, the vast majority
of them took tho whole thins as a good
Joke on themselves and are laughing it
off among themselves.
"Well. If thero was rum in It." said
F. A. High, tho Anti-Saloon league su
perlntendent of the Omaha district, "I
can say that I havo eaten worse ice
cream than that many a time. It was
pretty good."
Ono or two of the ministers wanted to
ask tho. University club for an explana
tion as to how It happened that their Ice
cream was flavored with rum, but better
Judgment prevailed. It was remembered
that the eighty 'mon who lunched there
wero really the guests of one of the
members of the club who paid for the
luncheon, so they did not consider -It In
good form to make a kick on' the service.
WRITER OF THREATENING
LETTER IS ARRESTED
POSTMASTER PRESENTED
WITH WATCH BY BRANDEIS
Postmaster Wharton was presented with
a gold watch yesterday from Arthur
Brandels, who brought it over from
Paris. The watch has a square dial with
Roman figures. It has twenty-four
Jewels and Is very thin. The works nre
so arranged that one can scarcely dis
cern Its ticking. It is probably the flrat
of Us kind seen In Omaha. The chain Is
of alternate gold and platinum links, the
latest thing In watch chains, as -viewed
by the cdltured eyes of Paris, Iondon
and New York.
Wad Gum, colored, of Kansas City, Mo.,
was arrested on the carnival grounds
Tuesday afternoon by Detectives Dunn
and Fleming and Is being held for the
federal authorities, who charge him with
sending a threatening letter through the
malls.
During the carnival week of last year
Gum, together with a negro woman, was
forced to leave the city mainly tnrough
the testimony offered by Dunn and Flem
ing as to their "occupation." A week
later Dunn received a letter from Kan
sas City signed by Gum and containing
the information that he was coming back
and would shoot either of the men on
sight.
While trailing through the carnival
Dunn spied and arrested tho man before
he could create any disturbance. He was
turned, over to the government officials
this morning.
Church May Be Able
to Collect on Its
Insurance Policy
It became evident that Plymouth Con
gregational church, whose building was
destroyed by the tornado March 23
shortly before 6 o'clock, a few hours
after the expiration of an Insurance pol
icy which covered loss by windstorm, has
a chance to collect the amount of the
policy In the courts when Judge Sutton
of the district court overruled a de
murrer, which would. If sustained, have
thrown the case out of district court.
Judge Sutton held that if It can be
proved that It is the custom of Insur
ance companies to renew policies without
notice from the Insured In time to pre
vent any lapse of protection at the tlmo
of expiration of an old policy and if
knowledge of that custom was a part of
the consideration which Induced the In
sured to take out the policy the Insur
ance company Is liable for the loss In
curredj by the congregation of the church.
