The New York Central's electric loco
motive attained seventy-four miles an
hour at yesterday's test. With eight
coaches, its speed was fifty-five miles.
In sixty-three seconds the spe*d was
thirty-five miles, and this was increased
at the rate of five miles every thirty sec

The Soo is said to have designs on
the timber traffic in the Eainy river

planned. The completion of the line
will greatly change the lumber manufac

for effective competition with the north

1 Ull liiilll^lil llVAl/J FEDERATION ELECTION.
Special to The Journal.
New York, Nov. 2.The Hawley rail
roads, so-called, the Minneapolis & St.
Louis and Iowa Central, are stated by
the people who know them best to have
passed the most dangerous period of
their history to date, and to be now in
a position to earn more money in both
gross and net than they did last year.
It is the belief of the management that
the roads have seen their worst earn
ings for some years.
Nevertheless, the current earnings of
both roads are not up to much. They
appear to be at the moment about hold
ing their own, with the odds slightly in
the favor of 1905 against 1904 or 1903,
but with 1902 away ahead of any year
since. The Minneapolis road earned for
the first four months of the fiscal year
1905 just about enough to pay fixed
charges and preferred dividends, and
leave no surplus. This is about what
was expected from the first few months
of the year. That the preferred divi
dends have been maintained at all i3made
considered better than was to be ex
It can be said flatly, that there is
no probability the company will be com
pelled to cut or reduce its preferred
dividends. If it does, the necessity will
be a big disappointment to the manage
ment. This stock is held in small lots
all over tho country by poor people in
many cases, and the aim of the com
panv is to let it remain in present hands
so far as possible, and ,not disturb the
stock lists, as would be the case if vhe
dividend were changed. Therefore ev
ery possible effort will be made to keep
the earnings in net up to the require
ments of these dividends. The task will
not be difficult, judging by the fact that
in the face of two very bad years, and
the loss of Rock Island patronage, tho
dividends have been fairly earned.
The common stock is another ques
tion. I was once boomed to abnormal
prices by an energetic pool, which took
hold at about the right time and sent
the stock skyrocketing with the rest of
the market when Gates was the king
pin of the Wall street market. Now it
is suffering from the natural reaction.
The people who once were its best
friends look askance at it. "Once bit
ton always shy" is an excellent maxim
in Wall street. I is quite safe to gay
that the old crowd will wait awhile bo
fore anything happens in Minneapolis
& St. Lcuis common.

hours of wrangling, during which one

for adjournment, Mrs. Philip
arpenter was today declared the head
of the official ticket of the New York
State Federation of Women's clubs,
and Mrs. Dore Lyon was forced to ac
cept the nomination from the floor.
The trouble began when Mrs. Dore
Lyon delivered' her report as chair
man of the trade school committee.
Despite the fact that discussion from
the floor was cut off till Wednesday,
she was permitted to deliver some
sharp raps at the women who "refused
to carry out the work to which they
had pledged themselves." This led to
a demonstration by her party, who ap
plauded and cheered while she prom
ised the support of the legislature for
Feeling passed all bounds when Mrs.
J. M. CaTder brought in a ticket headed
by Mrs. Carpenter. Miss Ann Rhodes
moved the adoption of this as the of

challenged the validity of the nominat

wildest confusion. Every effort was
to overthrow the nominating com
mittee's report and secure t'o Mrs.
Lyon an equality of prestige with her

THE ROOT OF THE MATTER
He Cured Himself of Serious Stomach
Trouble, by Getting Down to
A man of large affairs in one of our
prominent eastern cities, by too close at
tention to business, too little exercise
and too many club dinners, finally began
to pay nature's tax, levied in the form
of chronic stoma'ch trouble the failure
of his digestion brought about a nerv
ous irritability, making it impossible to
apply himself to his daily business, and
finally deranging the kidneys and heart.
In his own words he says: I con
sulted one physician after another and
each one seemed to understand my case,
but all the same they each failed to
bring about the return of my former di
appetite and vigor. For two
years I went from pillar to post, from
"one sanitarium to another, 1 gave up
smoking, I quit coffee and even re
nounced my daily glass or two of beer,
but without any marked improvement.
Friends had often advised me to
try a well-known proprietary medicine,
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets,'and I had
often perused the newspaper advertise
ments of the remedy, but never took
any stock in advertised medicines nor
could believe a fifty-cent patent medi
cine would touch my case.
"To make a long'story short I finally
bought a couple of packages at the
nearest drug store and took two or
three tablets after each meal, and oc
casionally a tablet between meals, when
I felt any feeling of nausea or discom
"I was surprised at the end of the
first week to note and a marked im
in my appetite and general
health, and before the two packages
were gone I was certain that Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets were going to cure
completely, and they did not disappoint
me. I can eat and sleep and enjoy my
coffee and cigar, and no one would sup-
