Taken from Jury. The personal
damage suit of H. II. Fuller vs. the
Phoenix Milling company came" to a
sudden close yesterday afternoon when
Judge Bollinger sustained a motion to
instruct the jury to return a verdict
for the defendant. The question under
debate was a close one. The defense
maintained that assumed risk by the
plaintiff had been proven from the tes
timony of himself and his own witnes
ses. The judge sustained this motion
without hearing any evidence of the
defense save for that of the draughts
man who identified the plans of the
scene of the action and who was put
on the stand before the plaintiff had
rested his caso. Mr. Fuller claimed
$5,000 from the Phoenix Milling com
pany by reason of injuries which he
received by being caught on a pully
shaft and twisted about.
Try Creosote Blocks. The paving
question came up again before the
Davenport aldermen yesterday after
noon, when the council met in com

V. Scott and 1 CI. Susemihl appear

of the protests against paving Second
street between Perry and Main, this
year, with creosote blocks. The dis
cussion ended in a decision to grant
the protests, and in the adoption of
Aid. Schick's motion to pave the in

Second and Harrison with creosote

Tacoma has an enormou3 rail and
ocean commerce. It is the chief Pa
cific coast terminal of the Northern
Pacific railway, and is the western
terminus of the Tacoma Eastern rail
way, which will undoubtedly form the
last western link in another great
tal railway system. The
Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul rail
road has purchased 200 acres of land
at Tacoma for its chief Pacific coast
terminals, and the Union Pacific, the
Southern Pacific, the Chicago & North
western, the Canadian Pacific, the
Great Northern and the Gould system
are all likely to invade the Puget
Sound territory and establish termin
als at Tacoma within the next three or
four years. During each of the last
three years Tacoma has received more
cars of railway freight than either
Portland or Seattle, while the ocean
commerce of the port of Tacoma has
increased from $20,803,811 in 1S99 to
$54,295,221 in 1905.
Tacoma's growth Is due largely to
its development as a manufacturing
point. The cty has a great many lum
her and shingle mills, and cuts more
lumber than any other city in the
world. Its flour milling capacity is
greater than that of any other city west
of Minneapolis and Kansas Cit3. The
Tacoma smelter reduces ores of gold
silver, lead and copper. The output of
this establishment alone in 1905 was
valued at S10,G4G,00S. Facilities for
manufacturing at Tacoma are excep
tional, owing to its command of raw
materials, the development of the wa
ter-power resources of the Cascades
which gives Tacoma more harnessed
electrical energy than has been devel
oped at any other point in the United
States with the exception of Niagara
Falls, abundance of coal from mines
located within 30 miles of the city,
cheap fuel from the waste of the lum
ber mills, and transportation facilities
by rail and water to all parts of the
Tacoma is a city of homes, of nu
merous colleges, seminaries and other
institutions of learning, of beautiful
parks, well paved, broad streets, and
of scenic attractions which evoked
from Sir Henry Irving the exclamation
that Tacoma was the most beautiful
city he had ever visited. It is an ex
ceptionally healthy city, the death rate
in 1903 having been only S.5 per thous

"Watch Tacoma grow" has become
a familiar slogan in all parts of the
country. The growth .of ths youngest
of the maritime cities of the United
States is certainly remarkable. Its
population in 1900 was 37,000. Last
June it was 75,000, and at the rate the
city is now growing its population will
be 100,000 before the close of 190G.
The Tacoma Daily News has issued
an annual edition which is replete with
facts and figures showing Tacoma's
growth in various lines. The bank
clearings of this magic city increased
from $27,000,000 in 1S9G to $53,000,000
in 1900, $115,000,000 in 1904 and $1G5,-

desire on the part of the party leaders
to be first in the field with their nom

Feb. 27, next week Tuesday, for the

CURES WORST CASES
H. O. Rolfs Sells Hyomei Under Guar
antee That It Costs Nothing Un
less It Cures.
Hyomei cures the worst cases of ca
tarrh simply by breathing the rem
edy through the pocket inhaler that
comes with every outfit.
Stomach drugging often causes dis
ordered digestion, and never makes
a permanent cure of catarrh. Hyomei
not only kills the germs in the throat
and nose,, but penetrates to the minut
est air cells in the lungs and enters the
blood with the oxygen, killing the ca
tarrhal germs in the blood.
The complete Hyomei outfit, con
sisting of a vest-pocket inhaler and
medicine dropper, and a bottle of Hy
omei, costs only $1. If this does not
effect a complete cure, extra bottles
can be obtained for 50 cents.
H. O. Rolfs knows of many people
who have been cured of catarrh by Hy
omei. He believes in it so thoroughly
himself that he offers to refund the
money in case it does not cure.'
