Xew York. Nov. 22. Governor-elect
Cummins, of Iowa, who is at present
In New York, made a statement jester-
day with respect to the possible results
of the joint c ontrol of western railways
by the Northern Securities comnaiiv.
Ile said: "I do not believe there will
be any organized opjiosition In Iowa to
the big consolidation of western rail-
loads. There is a wide difference of
opinion in our state as to the result of
the consolidation. While it is recog
nized th.U the movement places a great
power in a few hands It is recognized
also that j)ower may be used for the
people's good as well ns to their detri
ment. It is felt that it may eliminate
cutting of rates, rebates to large ship
pers, and give steadiness to transporta
tion charges. These are some of the
things that at present are the greatest
troubles to our pople.
Where It May He Iet rimcntal.
-Oii the other hand, the consolidation
places in the hands of those at the
head of the movement a power that
contains tlie elements of jeril. If it I
used to reduce the accommodation of
the lines consolidated, to raise their
rates, and decrease facilities for ship-
is rs and passengers in order to .econ
omize, there is no doubt the people
will be prompt in taking such recourse
as Is in their power. This would nrol-
nbly assume the form of law suits and
legislative action. If. however, the
railroads in the consolidated linos use
tneir large (towers wisely I see no
reason fer them to apprehend any trou-
le In Iowa.
Think It Only tli liceinning.
I regard the consolidation of the
northwestern railroads ns the first step
toward uniting the Iterests of all the
grc.Tt railroad systems west of Now
York. When carried through it will
prevent entirely rebates and rate-cutting,
which are great hindrances in
many places to business. Hut If the
powers or the t Tin I consolidation are
used to raise rates and decrease facili
ties of shipment ami travel there is no
doubt the general government would
tcp in and regulate rates."

lie Satlifaelion In Traveling Alone.
'Oh. the pleasure of eating alone!"
wrote Charles J:.nb iu one of bis most
expansive letters. We are not quite sure
how serious be was in the exclamation.
But change "e-atiug"' iuto "traveling.
and there may be found thousands who
will echo the cry. Thackeray thought
there was nothing to equal it. Louis
Stevenson, in ihe Ceveunes, made tbe
same discovery, for his donkey cannot
be said to count.
Joan Paul Richler. though he did not
live in touring times, was too accom
plished an individualist (of the senti
mental kind) not to harp on this musio
al string. "I hold the constant regard
that wo pay iu all our actions to the

"While we were walking about the
towu (Worcester) he asked me if It won
the custom iu France as iu England
that when the children went to school
they carried in their satchel with their
books a pipe of tobacco, which their
mothers took care to fill early in the
morning, it serving them instead or
breakfast, and that at the accustomed
hour every one laid aside his book te
light. his pipe, the master smoking with
them and teaching them how to bold
their pipes and draw in the tobacco."
In EDgland at the time of the great
plague it was reported that no one liv
ing In a tobacconist's house fell sick of
the disease. This caused a great de
mand for tobacco. Hearne says In hia
diary, "I remember that I heard for
merly Tom Rogers, who was yeoman
beadle, say that when he was a school
boy at Eton that year when the plague
raged all the beys of that school were
