We define wealth to be the creation of labor applied to the re ·sources of the earth, and capita] to be the accumulated portion of wealth used to create more wealth. "Capital, therefore; being primarily the product of labor or society as a whole, society has the supreme right ·to its :· disposal. ".We, therefore, declare it to be'our purpose to acquire for society- the ·ownership of said capital, represented "by the;mines, the machinery and all ^e means of production and dis .tribiitioh: , ,, "We; declare the self-evident truth, that all laws and constitutions under ^democratic forms of government" are the creations of man by legal enact merits. "Therefore, what .man. has created, .man may-abolish and: re-create to conform to the most scientific 1 and systematic means of production; and: the most just method of distribution. "Is is therefore our declared pur, ; pose as members of organized iaborand the -producing, and' working .class, tq acquire through, the power of our "unit,ed ballots the entire' control of gov Merriment in all. .its offices and function's.

For this purpose an imaginary Spanish'fort ·had been constructed and the American fleet was made up of a number of row boats with canvass, sides, repre- , senting warships. On these boats were 'a number of men carrying shot- ·guns and Roman . candles and other fireworks to be exploded towards the lort. . ' ' ' . The, signal for the, battle was given and the work of destruction proceeded in a most picturesque manner and the people were enjoying the spectacle highly. But .suddenly the applause and shouts -of approval were mingled .with cries of pain,.and two or three people in the audience on the land were seen to topple over, it was then discovered that, some o f - t h e gunners had by mistake loaded with real shells that small shot were not only demolishing the fort but were puncturing the innocent bystanders. Those injured were: Miss Quinn, load of buckshot striking her in the breast;.,Mrs. Robert Scott, slight wound in the neck;,Joseph Goddard, wounded in t.ho leg; Mrs. Henry Logue, struck in the leg .by shot; Joe Lynch, part of hand torn off by giant firecracker.

Des Moines/July S--Rev. A. B. Storms, of Des Moines, was elected president of the etate college at Ames last night The vote of the trustees -was unanimous His salary was fixed at $4.300, the figure at which Dr. Beardshear's salary stood when he died. The president also gets a house on the college campus Dr. Storms probably-will accept If so, he will assume the duties of the office at a time after the close of the fiscal year, but preceding the opening of the new school year The meeting of the trustees lasted from noon until midnight, yesterday. It began at Ames and ended at Des Moines. It was stormy at times--and that is not a pun--indeed., there were times when it was tempestuous. In Des Moines the door of the meeting room was surrounded and the lobby sprinkled with alumni of the institution, and the excitement extended to the telegraph offices, where wires were kept busy and messenger boys kept skurrying, n* the interest of the candidates whom the board was considering. · The board avoided taking a ballot on anybody till at last the tacit agreement was reachedito elect Dr Storms, when everybody past his paper ballot with the new man's name written on it Then there was adjournment "I believe fully that we solved the quw- tion m the best possible manner," said one of the trustees, speaking for several in the group. "And I believe that we left the room "a'united board." Thew was bitterness in, the struggle. "Acting President E W. Stanton and Professor of Agriculture C F Curtiss were the ^leading candidates. Both were connected with the institution, and both had earnest, vigorous supporters The contest has been going on for almost a year and in that time had_;leStr of opportunity to grow extremely bitter Its prolongation was due to the refusal ot some of the members of the board to vote tor either of the men, and because politics got.mixed into the struggle, it is S3.1CI. The Curtiss men claim the credit of having suggested Dr Storms as the compromise candidate At last he was endorsed by a caucus of the Stanton men. ^ TO BUILD FIRE ESCAPES LIFE OF POPE IS Aged Pontiff Catches Cold, Which Settles in His Chest and Head, Labor Commissioner Brlgham Gains A Victory Over Major Lacey.

He pro'.ned and complained of pains on both -sides, of 'the thorax. Tenderly, Dr. Lapponi, assisted by Pope Leo's valet, Piocenlra, and the physician's second assistant,,-De Castro, lifted the frail form and changing the position, succeeded in giving the patient some relief. Though hovering on the brink of death the life of the pontiff is still prolonged by means of strong stimulants and concentrated nourishment, and his wonderful vitality may again resist and conquer the attack of this illness.'
