Some of them postpone the time until

on naving tne strongest protection for

SETS A SORT OF RAILWAY TRAP.
And Hopes to Catch Some Violators or the
Interstate Commerce Law.
Washington, April 10. The interstate
commerce commission is dally receiv
ing replies to the circular sent out
March 10 to the thlrty-our railroads
comprising the Joint Traffic associa
tion, calling for tabulated statements
of the east-bound shipments of grain
and grain products from Chicago to the
Atlantic seaboard. Although the time
fixed for making such reports by the
terms of the circular expires today It
will probably be the end of the month
before all are in. No disposition has
been shown by any of the railroads not
to forward the reports. The investiga
tion contemplated by the circular is
based upon complaints from time to
time of rate-cutting carried on by re
bates, drawbacks, etc. -
The tabulated statements called for by
the commission require the railroads to
give a detailed account, with names
and dates, of each shlnment frAm tom
1 to March 15, from which the commis
sion Deueves tnat any irregularities, re
bates, etc.. can be easily traced. As the
law promises immunity to such as con
fess violations it is not believed there
will be any disposition to conceal the
facts where violations have occurred.
These reports, however, can be mads
the basis of prosecutions where they
lead to detections not acknowledged.
After all the reports are in a "hearing

TRUST IMPORTING SUGAR.
Scheme to Avoid Payment of Duties la
New Tork. April 10. Activity on the
part of the sugar trust to Import enor
mous quantities of sugar before the en
actment of the Dingley bill 'continues.
It became necessary for Collector Kil
breth to employ ten more weighers, and
twenty ethers will be hired immediately
to handle the many cargoes of sugar
entered at this port. The payment of
duty on sugar has increased more than
$500,000 this week.
At other ports this movement Is cor
respondingly large. A dispatch from
Boston states that thirty ships loaded
with sugar, wool and other merchandise
from European ports are scheduled to
sail for that port within the next few
days. In Philadelphia the receipts last
week were large, and the showing for
this week Is heavy. All this eugar Is
entered as "directed shipped prior to
April 1," hence the duty Is collectable
accordling to the schedule in the Wil
son law. ,
Medical Law for Wisconsin.
Madison, April 10. The medical bill

by the governor, three of them to be
allopaths, two homeopaths and two
eclectics. They are to examine appli
cants who have no diplomas and pass
upon the diplomas of graduates of col
leges. The assembly passed the bill
taxing express companies, the revised
banking code and the Merriman bill
providing for the appolntme'nt of a tax
commission. Seventeen bills in all were
passed. The senate passed three bills
and killed nine. !

OF THE ICLUC-HASLER
By Famed & Von Maur at the Klug-Hasler Stand.
The Klug-Hasler Co. being desirous of retiring from business, sold their excellent stock to us at about 33 per
cent of its original cost. Having secured it at this normal figure, we can place it before the public far below
what any nice, stylish, reliable goods were ever placed at before in the Tri-cities.
The Store has Been Closed a Week to Mark Down Every Article
And display the various lines so that it may be plainly seen just what the goods are. That this firm never handled
poor, trashy goods, but just the opposite, fine, high-grade merchandise right through their entire stock, is a well
known fact; so don't come with the idea that you'll find "cheap John" shoddy goods, for there aren't any. We
mention some of the lines which are in excellent qualities and away below the market: Lace Curtains, Under
wear, Hosiery, Kid Gloves, Muslin Underwear, Infants' Wear, Embroideries, Silk Handkerchiefs, Corsets, Silks,
Dress Goods, Wash Dress Goods, Mackintoshes, Cloaks, etc.
This Closing-Out Sale Will be Conducted in a Stra:ght, Forward Business Manner,
Just as we have been conducting the Boston Store during the past 10 years. No misrepresentations in any way
will be allowed. The goods will be sold on their quality and price merits, and STRICTLY FOR CASH.
THIS WAS A CASH DEAL WITH US IN BUYING, and will be the same in selling; so come pre
pared to buy largely, for we are sure you'll want the goods when you see them with their little prices.
ON THE SECOND FLOOR will be found Lace Curtains at a big discount. Jackets and Capes at one
third of their cost, Hosiery, Underwear, Infants' Capes, Art Fringes, Silk Pillows, Children's Dresses, Under
skirts, Poitiers, Shades, Curtain Fixtures, etc., all away below the market. TAKE ELEVATOR.
