New Schedule Kiullrul.
The new schedule of rates is the
most radical in fraternal insurance.
!t raises the organization to the level
of the "old line" companies in the
sense that it places life insurance on
a practical business basis. The essen
tial feature of the change, as explain
ed supreme .Master worKinan Mil
ler, is the determination to take care
of the older members.
Mr. Miller informed the representa
tives of the Illinois lodges that the
certificates of the entire NiO.Otm mem
bers i f 1 li order had been valued
and that it had been found that up
to .Ian. 1. 100t. there would be a de
ficiency of $::,o().oi)o. of which .'(;:..
iMto was already due to the different
grand jurisdict i n from Ihe guaranty

"I wish to further inform you," said
Supreme Master Workman Mdler,
that the deficiency for the entire mem
bership based upon the present rates
would be $14S,u00.fMH that is, if we
continue upon the same plan that we
are operating at present. The mem
bers over f." years of age by reason of
carrying them at present rate would
cause a deficiency of $14S.000,0O0,
which, of course, would bankrupt'the

Santa Fe Pleased With Results
of Petroleum as
ETFEOTS SAVING IN XXPENSE
Company ta Preparing to Open New
Fields and Will Extend
So-sueeessf ul has the Santa Fe been
in its experiments with oil as fuel for
its locomotives on its western line
that another purchase of oil lands is
bein made, and Jt ta estimated that a
saving of fully $1,000,000 in the cost of
fuel will be shown in due time on the
books of the company.
The company made its first experi
ments with oil several years ag-o and
extensive purchase; of oil lands were
made in Texas and California. Many
of the locomotives in service west of
AlbucpieKpie, . M., were fitted out
with oil burners at considerable cost,
but the saving in the cost of fuel fully
warranted the expenditures. A com
pany was formed at that time and the
Santa Ee received unlimited quantities
of oil in territory where the scarcity
of coal made the operating of loco
motives a matter of great expense.
It is now announced that
the company had decided still further
to equip its engines with oil-burning
devices, and it is probable another
company will be formed for the pur
pose of purchasing and operating ex
tensive oil wells adjacent to the lines
of the Santa Fe system.
For several weeks V. C. Nixon, one
of the executive officials of the Santa
Fe, and Mr. Coodrieh, its oil expert,
have been engaged in examining oil
lands in the icinity of Ardmore, I. T.
They are negotiating for 1.000 acres
of this class of property and will sinJv
wells to obtain the oil. At the pres
ent time the roads will purchase only
iniprmcincnts on the land and secure
mineral and agricultural leases uVtil
the land is placed on the market. The
ollicials say that the oil product will
be used for fuel.
Will I'ae It Further i;t.
When the Santa Fe first entered the
oil fields of Texas and California and
supplied its locomotives with oil-burning
deices, it was state! that nearly
$1,000,000 would be saved in fuel on
the lines west of Albuquerque, a ter
titory in which coal is exceedingly
scarf e. It is now believed that the
company will make use of oil as fuel
on its lines east of Albuquerque as
far as Kansas City. It is not improl
able that in the course of time the
locomotives on all lines of the sys
tem will be equipped with oil burners.
While the work of remodeling is de
cidedly eo.-tly. the saving in fuel more
than offsets the outlay. t ,'
Aside from the saving in the cost
of the fuel, the use of oil on a locomo
tive is a great advantage to the en
gineer. When coal is used on heavy
engines such as are used on the San
ta Fe most of the time of the fireman
is taken up in keeping the firebox
properly filled, and for this reason he
is unable to be of much assistance to
the engineer' In looking for signals.
On some of the coal-burning roads a
third man has been supplied to assist
the engineer In looking out for sig
nal. May V" tbf Cntofl.
Humor has it that the (odden State
limited train, which the Koek Island
road will again place' in commission
to the Pacific coast during the net
few weeks, will ruu a portion of the
distance over the Milwaukee road's
new line. The section that it is said
the fast through train will use is be
tween Washington and Seymour,
thereby shortening the distance be
tween those points about twenty-live
HERE IS HOPE FOR THE
VICTIMS OF HAY FEVER
Announcement is made that hay fe
ver can be cured by inoculating ani
mals with a poison or toxin extruded
from the pollen of flowers, and then
injecting the serum obtained from
the animal's blood into the patient.
The discovery was made by Prof. Dun
bar, of Hamburg, tlermany, after 7
years of research, and it disproves
popular medical theory as to the na
ture of the disease.
The six or eight weeks of violent
sneezing called "hay fever are vari
ously blamed on the summer heat,
exhalation from grass and new mown
hay, mechanical irritation by pollen
from grasses and other plants, and
recentl5' to bacteria.
According to Dr. Dunbar, the dis
ease is caused by the pollen of grass
es, ut not by mechanical irritation.
He has extracted from the' pollen a
pidson or toxin, a solution of which
dropped into the eye or nose at once
produces the characteristic symp
toms of hay fever. The discovery sug
gested treatment by the serum meth
od, and Dr. Dunbar tet to work to
produce a curative serum by inocul
ating animals' with prdlen toxin.

GOV. YATrS' 5 PER CENT.
ASSESSMENT IS REVIVED
The 3 per cent "slush fund,"
which threatened the republican or
ganization with disruption in the state
campaign in 1902 and formed the
chief issue in the senatorial contest
among Willam K. Mason, A. J. llop
kns and Charles (j.-Dawes, nas been
revived. September salaries of all
state employes who are drawing $."0
a month or more were placed on the
block and 3 per cent will drop into
the Yates campaign basket.
The report that the republican as-i-'essincnt
bureau has resumed busi
ness comes from the southern Illinois
penitentiary at Chester and the asyl
um for the criminal insane at Anna.
It is also reported on reliable au
thority that the -assessment will be
accumulative and that "back taxes"
for nine months will be enforced
within three months or three regular

Owing to the scandal which arose
over the "slush fund"' avear ago col

with the approach of a gubernatorial
campaign in which tJov. Yates will be

Seven or eight months separate the

Politicians assembled at Cnrbondalc

vival in complaints emanating from
the Chester prison, of which lien. .1.
15. Smith, of Clay county is warden. j
(ien. Smith is reported to have carried!
out the governor's order in no uncer
tain language, and the tax idea does!
not seem to find favor among Kgyi
tians who hold jobs at Chester. Near
ly allof (iov. Yates' calculated strength
is in southern Illinois, and the re
turn of the' tax gatherers is not like
ly to stop the hemorrhage caused by
I.owdrn, Warner. Hamlin and Hose
cuts in Yates territory.
In the Hopkins-Da wes-Mason sena
torial fight it was estimated the "slush
fund" aggregated $100,000 a year, but
the figure probably was excessive, as
all employes under $"0 were exempt
from assessment. There is little
doubt, however, that the proceeds of
the former fund were devoted almost
exclusively to the personal interests
of (iov. Yates, and the desperate sit na
tion in which the governor now finds
himself is taken to mean that the
next "slush fund" will be distinctively
a Yates fund.
