THE STREET RAILWAY CO. WITH-
DRAWS I TS APPLICATION.
Thomas Lowry Says the Demand for
Repairing Washington Bridge Is
"Unreasonable-The Union Station
Loop I Inconvenient for Passen-
gers, but I May Used.
Congestion of the down-town car
lines will be relieved by using the
union station loop. Thomas Lowry,
president of the street railway com
pany, has instructed General Mana
ger W. J. Hield to withdraw the ap
plication for the use of down-town
streets for the proposed new loop.
Mr. Lowry says he does not intend,
ever again to make such an applica
tion. The president does not believe
that his company has a ny more to
do^With repairing of the Washington
avenue bridge than it has with re
pairing the temple at Thebes.
Mr. Lowry said today. "There is
much congestion on the Sixth street
loop and it is growing worse. W
shall come to the point where the
company will ha\e to relieve that con
gestion, and it will do so by diverting
cars now using the First avenue loop.
Foi instance, the interurban cars
might be sent round by the union
station. The company made the ap
plication for the benefit of the public
and at the request of business men.
The building of the loop would ha ve
put us to a large expense, but it would
have been for the benefit of the pub
lic. Just as many people will ride,
but the difference is that a ny one
wanting to go to the West hotel or
the big department stores from the
interurban line will ha ve to walk.
"Our company carries all the busi
ne ss to the state fair grounds, and
we did not ha ve to build the expen
sive terminals which we have put in
there, but it was done for the benefit
of the public. This ought to show
that the company is not attempting
any street grab, as has been sug
gested." A BIG BARGAIN

Salvation Army congress. was
accompanied by his wife. Major Har
ris corroborates the rumor that Eva
Booth is to assume charge of the

understood in London that the
change was to take place that Eva
Booth would resign her command in
Canada, and establish her headquar

in New York. It was also said that
Booth-tucker, whom Eva Booth will
succeed, is to report to London head
quarters for future detail.
"Our congress in London lasted
three weeks, and was held in a spe
cially built hall on the Strand, which
seated 10,000 people. The American
delegation had the pleasure of being
received at the American embas sy by
Ambassador Choate. With a band at
our head pjaying the national airs,

in that part of the city made it im
perative that the bridge be widened
so that there would be a driveway
outside of the railway tracks. The
city was authorized to issue bonds for
this improvement, but the bonds had
not been sold and it would be a very

While the husba nd was bucking the

Finally the husba nd came to the

This is one of the true stories of the
tecent wheat excitement. The women
ha ve been trading as never before.
So me lost more made money.
"Unless a woman knows how to
lose she has no business trading in
wheat," said Mrs. Des sa M. Hummell,
who has charge of a popular woman's
tradingroom at the Minneapolis
chamber, and knows both trades and
About five hundred women were
following the markets last week, and
those who lost bore their losses as
philosophically as the men upon
change. One woman dropped $600,
all she had in the world, but she never
whimpered, and came back next day
with $60 which she had borrowed,
and with which she made enough to
pay back her loan and make a start
the next day.
Women Cant "Carry.*'
Few women have courage to
"carry" a trade. They buy in the
morning and if the ticker shows a de
cline of an eighth of a cent they want
to sell while a corresponding advance
brings a clamorous demand to buy.
They are overflowing with knowledge
of what the market will do and th ey
share their knowledge with anyone
who will listen to them, but they won't
follow it themselves. The re is one
woman whose ability to guess the
market has given her a group of men
customers and he makes small sums
for them every day, but when she
trades for herself she always consults
her buyer. Another woman is known
as "the bear" for she is never seen in
a tradingroom except during a bear
Wheat dealers have a language of
their own and it is a clever woman,
who can learn it as several women
found out last week. They were dab
bling in the market to the extent of
5,000 bushels and th ey were prpud of
their deal and of their knowledge of
ter ms and phrases. They used the
latter liberally, but to their dismay
they learned that their understanding
of them did not agree with that of
their broker and that when they
meant for him to sell he thought th ey
wanted to buy and tears and protesta
tions were heard over the telephone.
Old Traders Watch Board.
\t is the old traders who frequent
the tradingroom. The women who
want to catch up on their dressmak
ing and millinery bills and who would
die rather than ha ve their husbands
learn that th ey know what a margin
is carry on their deals over the tele
phone, but last week the most of them
trailed away behind their bills instead
of forging ahead.
The women who make trading a
profession and not a luxury are sa t
isfied with small killings and if the
close of the day's market finds them
with $50 or $75 to the good they are
satisfied. This happens so frequently
that th ey reckon their income at that
rate and during the recent flurry many
of them doubled it.
"A woman can trade in wheat as
well as a man, but she stands the
same chance of losing as a man," mur
mured a crisp white-shirted,
white-skirted, speculator this morn
ing as he bent over the strip
of paper which flowed from the
ticker, "and if she can't take her
losses as philosophically as he does
her gains she hasn't any business with
either. But most women can for the
hysterical type has gone out of fas h
ion and in her place is the calm, even
tempered woman who can win or lose
at poker, bridge or on the market."
