Hh , 1 , ' There is one incident, however, that
Hll ' j ,?.Z was settled last week In Denver that
J '! jp "guessing." orders, demands and
HJj H ! ij " threats all failed to briny about, ao

Hlj When Mr. Moffat decided that ho

2Tletter .rettlnET forth hia wants.
1 i : j ' The letter arrived at the ofilce of tho

I been staying for just thirty long days.

--- "We want that light at once," was

1 ,, "Yes, sir, right away," came the an-

Hl Two weeks gone and the president of
! the First National bank was getting
H1 t indignant. He wrote a letter and it
i was couched In strong terms. Down the
! ; line the letter went, landed on tho desk
of tho young woman and into tho wasto
H basket It went.
"He has a terrible nerve," sho said
H' and went on with her other work.
' .. Other things came up to worry Mr.
' Moffat and ho let the question of light
K r xdrop until today.
H, "That light has not been put In," ho
f I 7sald, "and now I'm going to stop at
) I ; "the gas ofilce and explain my feelings,"
H' ( j So, brlrht and early. Mr. Moffat ar-
Hl ' i rived at the otTlce of the gas company.
' "You are a fine lot of fellows," be-
gan Mr. Moffat, and then ho told all
J ! his troubles.
I "That's a shame, for sure," answered
Hll ,j the secretary, "and I am going to mako
H) j a personal Investigation at once."
H u He went to the first und proper ofll-
j! j clal. Ho was told that the order had
; gone through and the light must be in.
i On to tho next clerk and the next and
H the next. Everything was all right
H and Mr. Moffat was becoming intcr
ested In the chase.
"Did you get an application for light
from David H. Moffat?" the secretary
a asked at last of the young woman who
; " had talked about boldness and nerve.
1 "I did."
1 "What did you do with It?"
"I turned it down."
' ' "TurnOd it down, and why, pray?"
"Why, his credit is bad."
' 'TIs related that Mr. Moffat colored,
i shifted from one foot to the other and
I drew close to the counter.
1 - "David H, Moffat's credit bad? Why.
; woman, you arc foolish. He owns
H, - stock in the company. He's a railroad

Hi. J ' fat "I am satisfied. I guess I must

the time these new locomotives were

MONEY TO FIGHT
PACKERS AND RAILROAD
One hundred thousand dollars in caBh
has been raised by the Cattle-Growers'
Interstate executive committee to carry
on their fight with the packers and the
railronds. J. J. Dickson, representing
the Depnrtmcnt of Labor and Com
merce at Washington, D. C, was profl
ent at tho final meeting of tho commit
tee In Denver.
All are convinced that by following
out the proposed plans a better condi
tion of affairs can bo brought about.
From several railroad officials the com
mittee has already had aHBuranccs that
many of their requests will be granted.
It is the intention of the committee,
before consulting with the railroads, to
proceed to collect all obtainable data
.showing the actual existing conditions
In regard to the rates given and service
performed by the railroads In the
transportation of live stock. They also

has booked already fifty-four special
trains for the Knights Templar excur
sion to the coast in September.
Fine weather during the last two
days has sent most of the railroad men
down south after the wool again.
S. V. Dcrrah, assistant general freight
agent of the Denver & Rio Orande,
went to Denver on No. 2 yesterday. It
is thought that, owing to the death of
George W. Kramer there will bo a
oliake-up on the Gould HneH in the
West. When asked whether hie going
to Denver had any significance Mr.
Dcrrah eaid it had not, that he knew
of no changes that would take placo to
affect him, and that ho was merely go

In spltr of tho reports that railroad
construction this year will bo reduced
to a minimum, tho demand for steel
rails has been very strong of late. Last
wck the Now York Central placed an
order for 20,000 tons. The trade re
ports say that Western orders are
keeping the Chicago mills busy.
The Belgian and French capitalists
who are Interested In the oil fields In
Wyoming have concluded their lour of
tho country around Lander and Snlt
Creek. It is understood that the result
of their Investigation Is a decision to
build tht railroad to Lander.
Nownpaper storlcy in Denver are to
tho ofroet that a war Is Imminent be
tween the Eastern roads? and the water
carriers on the wuter rate differential.
The Rocky Mountain News has the fol
lowing article. "Publication of tho
story that the water rate differential on
wool from this district would bo met
by tho leading Eastern carrlore has
brought a declaration from the local
ofilces of the Mallory steamship lines
that such a move on the part of tho
roads would be followed by a frtlll fur
ther reduction by the Galveston peo
ple, thua placing the rate 10 cents
on the hundred lower than that hereto
fore in use by the roads. That fight
la more than probable over the matter
is not disputed, but It may be fair to
say that the Kanawha Dispatch people
will protect the differential throughout,
regardless of the fact that the freight
amount of the product from this district
alone during a year will amount to
about 60,000,000 pounds.
