Omaha, Neb., Oct. G. Good auth

president, but no announcement
will be made until urter election.
This comes In contradiction of a
report circulated several days ago to
the effect that the merger had been
given up because of President Roos

The National Livestock Associa
tion, in conjunction with several rail
roads, backed by a large amoutn of
capital, formed plans in advance to
fight the merger, and will now have

Thee ommittees in charge of the ar
rangements for the tenth national Ir
rigation congress which convenes
hero October G, have received en
couraging reports, which promise a
large attendance of noted men from
all parts of the country. Large del
egations from the commercial clubs
of Omaha and St. Paul will come in
private cars. New Mexico, Texas,
Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska
cities will also send large delega
tions. The subjects to be handled, af
fecting as they do the proper expen-
diture of $8,000,000 of public money
now available and from the proceeds
from futuro land sales for the recto
mation of millions of arid acres and
the making of homes for millions of
people now crowded In tne citieB,
have attracted the highest minds of
the nation, from captains of Indus
try to the leaders of labor organiza
tions. Letters of indorsement or tne
possibilities of the congress are pour
ing in every day from these people.
One notable communication was
received today from John' W. Ela,
the nromincnt lawyer and civil ser
vice apostle of Chicago. In part it
was as follows:
No nroJect of equal Importance
has heen launched in 50 years. The
action of congress has transformed
our dream of two years ago into a
concrete system. The vital thing
now is that those who snau oe en
trmrpd in its execution shall realize
that the sclieme is now at us pracu-
cal stage, and shall so manage tne
work and apply the funds as to jus
tify the government In assuming thfi
responsibility at our request. We
were once an agricultural country,
but for six years now the farmers
have ceased to be one-half of the
population. It is an axiom In politi
cal economy, that a country is at its
best stage when agriculture is. its
dominant Industry. Anarchy starves
in an agricultural country. So vIth
most of the evils which threaten the
perpetuity of peace of a community.
With 50,000 farmers on farms that
will not only bo as fertile as any
where in the world, but whoso fer
tility will bo practically perpetual,
the agricultural character of this
country will bo .fixed for well, say

Spokane, Oct. G. "Barbarian"
Brown is dead. The end came Sat
urday at Phoenix, Ariz., where Mr.
Brown has been for severjl months
in a vain effort to resain his health.
The news of his death wast convoyed
in a brief telegram from Mrs. Brown
to Patrick Clark, an intimate friend
of the deceased. Beyond the brjef
announcement of his death it con
tained no tidings.
The news that "Barbarian" Brown
is dead will carry a shock to the
whole mining world. From the

name is Known to almost every man
who has ever been interested in min

PRESIDENT NEEDS REST.
Strain of Recent Events Cause Fear
of a Setback, In His Condition.
Washington, Oct. 6. Secretary
Cortelyou yesterday evening, upon
being asked as to the condition of
the president, said the conference
held yesterday was a severe strain
cn the president. While, In the
judgment of his physicians, his pro
gress toward recovery has been sat
isfactory, they conclude that to avoid
the risk of a setback he should be
relieved of any endue tax upon his
strength. Therefore for the next
week or 10 days only such matters
will be brought to his attention as
may he imperatively necessary for
him to consider.

Colors and Illuminations.
Washington, Oct. 6. Tho latch-
string is on the outside and the na
tlonal capltnl has put tho big pot in
the little one. Old Glory was unveil
ed to the breeze this morning and
thousands of visitors are expressing
their gratification at tho warm, sin
cero and thoroughly hospitable ro
ception tendered them by tho people
of Washington. During Sunday lo
cal railroad men estimated that fully
30,000 strangers arrived ovor tho va
rious lines with terminals in this
city. Today there was twice the con
fusion and twice tho crowds about
the depots, and up to noon tho morn
ing trains had brought fully 50,000
additional people to the city. While
the Grand Army veterans were in
the majority, it was a notable fact
that hundreds of tho arrivals were
merely sightseers attracted by the
low excursion rates and a desire to
view the sights of tho national capi
tal. All day Sunday tho streets pre
sented a crowded appearance. Sight
seers were on every thoroughfare in
the central portion of tho city, view
ing the other people, the crowds, tho
government buildings and tho deco
rations and arrangements made for
the reception and entertainment of
Today the crowd was several times
as large. Pennsylvania avenue and
other of the principal streets were
crowded early In the morning, and
most of the peoplo who were out
were strangers. Every train arriv
ing In tho city brought large in
creases to the crowd, and at noon
the crowds in the vicinity of tho cap
itol and other centers of attraction
could bo compared only to the Inaug
uration day throngs. Here and thpro
in the crowds could be seen the neat
blue uniforms and black gold-corded
hats of men who wore those colors
during the war, and everywhere they
were these gallant men were noticed
with great Interest by the crowds of
people. Today's arrivals lncludo
large delegations from New England
New York and Pennsylvania, and
from Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, the
Dakotas; Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska,
Michigan and other states of tho
During tho early part of tho day
the national officers of tho G. A. It
and affiliated organizations reached
the city, together with otner visitors
of note, and the escorts conducted
them from the depots to national en

Grand Army: Commouoro John O,
Shaw, of the National Association of
Naval Veterans; Commander-in-Chief
Alexander, of the Sons of Veterans,
and other persons who aro to flguro
prominently in tho events of tho
week, were accorded enthusiastic re

noon when Camp lloosevolt. tne
group of hugo canvases erected on
the White Lot for tne various sea
