Other Companies Involved.
The examination of ex-Alderman
Mol was taken up in police court to
day. Salsbury testified that he not
only gave Mol $-350 for aiding the
water deal, but also gave him $80 to
vote for him for city attorney.
Salsbury denied that he gave money
for their campaign expenses to all the
aldermen running for re-election in
1901. He went oyer the list of those
who were running, however, and said
he gave campaign money to Aldermen
McCool. Kinney, Schriver, Ghysels,
Johnson, Beck, Lozier and McLachlan.
"Where did you get this money?"
"Some from- the street railway com
pany and some of the Bell Telephone
company. I got the street railway
money from Mr. Sproat and I think he
gave me $1,000." ,
Salsbury said that he could "not re

company money, but said that it came
to him thru Mayor Perry.
Jury Fixing, Too.
"Salsbury testified that he entered
into attempted jury bribing when he
was on trial. He said he gave Alder
man Mol $150 to pay to a juror named
Meyers who was expected to sit in
his case. Meyers was stricken off the
- jury by the prosecution and he after
wards returned $75 of the money, so
Salsbury further testified: "I **ave
$75 to John Kremer, who was in the
poor department. He was to fix a

Charges That Men High in Authority
Are Being Protected by Pres
1 ent Investigation.
Washington, Dec. 8,When the
resolution for the investigation of the
postofflce frauds came up in the sen
ate to-day, Mr. Gorman took the floor
ah'd strongly opposed .the'reference to
a compiittge of the resolution.' He
declared that the majority should not
shrink from an investigation. He said
there had been positive assertions that
men who- had unlawfully placed em
ployes on the rolls were to escape.
Mr. Gorman said'fraud and corrup
tion were admitted and communicated
to the senate by the president. He
said the country was not satisfied with
the investigation, nor was the senate.
Those who had-been accused had said
bthei-s higher up were as giiilty as
they, while they had been made scape
goats. ' "Let us have all the facts,"
said Mr. Gorman, "and see if the
president will turn the rascals out."
Mr. Lodge, who made a motion to
refer the resolution, stated that what
Mr., Gorman said only further con
vinced him that the resolution should
be-referred. The investigation made
under order of the president, he be
lieved, had brought out all the facts. .
Senator Nelson's Views.
Mr. Nelson said that it would be
impolitic to take the evidence put "of
the postofflce department now
make it public. He said that such
procedure would furnish the defend
ants with the papers in the depart
ment and give th em an opportunity to
make a defense. He contended that
this would be improper while the cases
were pending in the courts.
Mr. Tillman claimed that an attempt
was being made to whitewash the
Mr. Hoar suggested that if "the
frauds were as great as claimed, some
body ought to be-impeached, and such
proceedings should originate in the

WEST DOES WELL
Eastern Press Comments on Promi
nence of Western Members.
From the Journal Bureau, Colorado Building,
ins of Wisconsin is recerl^n^m'Jmy'
congratulations over his appointment
as chairman of the house judiciary
committee. H e was appointed in the
last congress to fill an unexpired term,,
and some of those who opposed him
thought he would not get the position
for the full term.
Wisconsin gets six chairmanships
in the present congress - and Iowa
four. Minnesota would have had two
if Heatwole had remained- in con
gress. The fact that so ma ny
manships, arid important
have gone t the .middle"west states,-,
is exciting considerable comment in
the eastern -ptjess, and" ate explanation
Is offered in the fact - that western
states are gradually adopting the tac
tics so long pursued In the east, of
keeping members in both houses for
long terms. It is only in this way that,
influence and position can be attained..
Jenkins is a good illustration of this
fact. He is one .-.of the. hardest
working members of the house, and
under his lead the judiciary commit
tee will dispose of a large' amount Of
important work this session. - . :
The Washington Post has an edi
torial to-day, repeating the editorial
utterances of the New York Tribune
and other eastern ^papers, and" saying-'
that the middle west is finally coming
into a position of commanding influ
ence in congress and advising that
section to continue its members, in
public service if it wants to exert a
proper influence on national legisla
tion and secure for the country be
yond the Alleghenies that recognition
to which it is entitled.

Mr. Overstreet, explaining the pur

possible information. If there had
been extravagance in the administra

essential that the committee know the
facts before recommending appropri
ations to the house. Mr. Overstreet
said the request of the committee was
foreign to any purposes to inaugurate'

tion of the postoffice de'partmeut.
Mr. Wanger (rep.,. Pa.,) asked if
there was any objection to the papers

.... From the Journal Bureau, Colorado Building,
Washington, Dec. 7:^President
Roosevelt's message is rather dis

cates ...'of the repeal of all land laws
save the original homestead law. His
message a year . ago contained a
sweeping recommendation for repeal,
and it was hoped he would repeat it
now, but he has shifted his ground a
bit. He has decided that there are
two sides to the question of absolute
repeal, and wants a full investigation
before deciding whether repeal, is the
proper remedy or not. .
! There is little difference of opinion
among disinterested observers as "to
the heed for radical amendment of the
land laws and the charges of fraud are
also admitted to be true, to a large
extent, but that repeal is the way to
reach these frauds is not so evident to
the president's mind as it was a year
ago. As soon as the commission

To Prove What Swamp-Root, the World-Famous Kidney, Liver and Bladder
Remedy, Will do for YOU, Every Reader of The Journal May
* * - -- Have a Sample Bottle FREE.
GENTLEMEN:Some two years ago I was so run down that I lacked strength, had no appetite
and could not sleep nights. Sometimes it seemed as though my back would break in two after stoop-
ing I had to get up many times during the night to urinate and go often through the day. After
having the best physicians prescribe for me without relief, I decided from my symptoms that the
medicine I needed was Dr. Kilmers Swamp-Boot, the great kidney, liver and bladder remedy. After
trying a sample bottle with good results, I purchased six bottles of the regular size and after
taking them was entirely cured. Swamp-Root is a wonderful remedy when a man is not feeling
well, after exposure or loss of sleep and irregular meals. It is also a great medicine to tone up a
man's system. Other members of the Police force are using and recommending Swamp-Root. They,
like myself, cannot say too much in praise of this great remedy.
The officers (whose signatures accompany this letter), as well as myself, thank you for the good
you have accomplished in the compounding of Swamp-Root.

Buekman, Steenerson and other mem
bers will go to the war department to
morrow to urge the establishment of
a military camp at Walker. Buckman
believes that one company of infan
try would be sufficient for police pur
poses in the event of an uprising. The
prospect of disturbance is lessened,
he thinks, since bids for Indian tim
ber were opened and such good prices
offered for it but the people living
in the vicinity of Walker are uneasy
and the government will be hrged to
send a small body of troops there as
a precautionary measure and allay any
fears' of the settlers.

Representative Bede has urged the
postoffice department to establish city
free delivery service at Hibbing. An

Advance Sheets of Railroad and Ware
house- Commission Repo rt Show
Apparent Gain of 84.08 Miles, hut
Error in Last Year's Footing Shows
a Much Greater Gain.
During the fiscal year ending June
30, 1903, the increase in the mileage
of main line railway in Minnesota
was, apparently, but 84.08 miles:
The advance sheets of the annual
report of the state railway and ware
house commission, issued to-day by
Secretary A. C. Clausen, show that
on June 30 the miles of main track
in the state, not including local trans
fer tracks and union depot tracks,
were 7,250 miles, as compared with
7,165.93 the preceding year. But
thru the discovery of an error in the
annual report of 1902, it is found that
the mileage that year was 7,068.69
riiiles, instead of 7,165.93 miles, which
really makes the gain for last year
181.33 miles, instead of 84.02 miles.
The mileage of transfer and term
inal railways for 1903 is 86.94, which
is the same mileage as that reported
The increase is principally in the
mileage of the Canadian Northern,
Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Chi
cago, Rock.Island & Pacific, Minne
sota & International, Wisconsin, Min
nesota & Pacific, and the Duluth &
Northern Minnesota railways.
The total-gross earnings of the rail
roads from passengers, freight, ex
press, mail, baggage, miscellaneous,
etc., were $68,061,499, and for the
previous year the same were $51,868,-
192, which shows, an increase of_$16,-
193,307 for the present year. This a p
parent phenomenal increase in gross
earnings is explained by the fact that
in the year 1902 reports of the Great
Northern, Eastern Minnesota and Wil
m ar & . Sioux Falls railways to this
commission- failed to' show Minnesota
earnings on their interstate business.
The total proportion of operating
expenses as reported by the railroad
companies was $32,302,296. For the
previous year the same was $28,007,-
