Tiie llarh Atmd, but Sow Popular
subject Iinrnd by Enrly Mrftters
...ProapeetM and Probabilities.
Ab a rule it is somewhat of a risky
thins, not to sa dangerous exactly, to
write or say anything appertaining to the
weather. It is a subject that has become
very thread bare and ragged by constant
mage ''for a nuriber of years, and the
mention of it is on most occasions offen
sive to good taste and is quite likely to be
resented with more force than feeling.
But in seasons such as the present, where
the atmosphere is so exceedingly pleasant,
it is a del gbtful subject, rather than an
unpopular theme to talk about. At any
rate, it is a topic that is receiving much
attention and complimentary comment
just at this time.
A pair of old timers were fearlessly dis
cusbing this muc j abused subject in a
plnce of buninept where the themes of the
day are apt to be talked over, this morn
ing, and one of them remarked: "I
never sw such weather in all my ex
perience io western Illinois, and I have
lived here thirty odd years. I remember
one year, I think it was in '61, that we
had mild weather until Chtis'mas, but
then it set io led hot or freezing cold
rather and we had it tough for the re
mainder of the winter. Such blizzards
and storms and renseless cold weather as
we had during the n reminder of that
season we never had before nor do I ever
expect to see the lie again, at least I
Lope not. I entertained the thought that
tit is winter was f;oing to cut just such a
caper, but I guess I miscalculated. At
any rate the back boue of winter is broken
now and no matter what does come, ve
will not gel so n-.uch of it as we would if
il had set in sooner, and that's consola
tion in't it?"
"Indet d it is" spoke up the other who
had been an atu-ntive listener, "but I
don't have much fetr of extreme weather
now. If wc don't, this will
be one of theni)8t glorious winters that
people could wish for anywhere.
Fiorula, or California, neither can present
such a climate. Think of it! Here is
a temperature with a maximum of 60
degrees above z -to and a minimum of
not lower than LO, with a daily average
at 50; what more delightful weather
could be asked f r? It :s no trick to get
acclimated to such weather and then
see what a blessing it is for people. I
hear the merchants who are overstocked
with winter wet.r are not satisfied. Well
I am sorry for them and I admire their
enterprise, and if they have been too
ambitious this s eason, let them salt their
stock down for another year. Much as
we like this wet.lher, and would have it
linger always, we will get some cold
blasts yet, accompanied by a demand for
heavier c'othes tud but a few calls for
couyh mixtures "
And the merchant in whose store the
conversation occurred, smiled approv

THE CAUSE FOR ALARM.
Why It Is That the Lanber Manrfart
arrr of tne Three Cities Froteat
Axainfct Increase in Railroad Kaiea.
The cause of the alarm of the lumber
manufacturers of the three cities and the
reason of the vigorous protest de
clared by the meeting in this city a few
days ago, against the proposed increase
ia railroad rates to Missouri river points,
is due to an unfair discrimination against
the manufacturers of this vicinity. The
adopted Increase in rates goes into effect
Jan. 10. The present rate from the
three cities to Kansas City, Leavenworth
and Atchison is 11 cents, with 13 cents
to Council Bluffs and Omaha. Tue rate
from Chicago to Kansas City, etc, is 13
cents, and Chicago to Council Bluffs and
Omaha 16 cents.
Now it is proposed that on and after
Jan. 10. the rate from these three cities lo
the Missouri river will be 14 cents per
100 pounds, while the rate from Chicago
will be 16 cents. So the railroad com
panies knock, off half a cent from the
differential that has made the rates
as between Chicago and the Mississippi
and the Missouri river sort of equitable.
At present the railroads haul Chicago
lumber across the state of Illinois to the
Mississippi for 2 cents per 100 pounds,
and then charge the same rates from the
Mississippi that the patrons of the tri
cky manufacturers pay. A car load, as
a car is loaded now-a-dajs, is 30.000
pounds and the lessening of the dif
ferential gives the Chicago shipper an
advantage over the Iowa shipper of
$15 for every car be sLips. The manu
facturers in the three cities Bay that Ibis
isn't right and they have appointed a
committee to go to Chicago nd demand
that the present differential be maintained
in the rate which is to be changed next
It is claimed, too, that this matter
comes under the cognizance of the inter
state commission, as inter-state com
merce is effected by it.
K. R. Cable Attacked.
Railroad capitalists in New York
and Boston are making a fierce on
slaught on the C, R. I. & P. directing
the force of it against Prebident R. R.
Cable, and blaming him for the decrease of
dividends and decline in stocks. Gould
and his friends want to get him out of the
way becsusc be will not fall in with their
schemes. His aid is more necessary io the
consummation of Gould's projects than
that of the other western presidents. His
road traverses the same territory as the
Missouri Pacific and Santa Fe west of
the Missouri river, and the co-operation
of the C, R. I. & P. is absolutely
necessary to help to create a fictitious
boom for the Gould and Atchison
properties in the southwest. The cons
spirators having depressed C.,R. I & P.
stocks far below their real value with
out making the least impression upon
the management or owners of the prop
erty, who know full well that they are
in a different boat than that of the Gould
system and the Atchison, and are per
fectly able to weather the storm. Gou'd
and bis conferers are now directing
their personal attention to President
Cable. The Wall Street Kew is their
organ of insinuation and abuse.
But the New York Post says that there
is not the least danger of Mr. Cable get
ting "a holiday." His refusal to allow
the great property intrusted to his care
to be manipulated in the interest of Jay
Gould and other magnates will
raise him still higher in the es
timation of the owners of the prop
erty. In 1884 a similar attempt was
made to oust Mr. Gable from bis position
because he would not conset to run his
road in the interests of the Vanderbilts.
Mr. Cable came out of the conflict with
flying colors, and the result has since
proven the wisdom of the position he
took at that time. If the Gould conspir
ators are really trying to secuie a change
in the management of the C, R. I. & P.,
their disappointment will be as great aa
was that of Mr. Vanderbilt in 1884, when
Mr. Cable was reelected by practically a
unanimous vote. Among all who know
him. Mr. Cable enjoys the reputation of
being one of the ablest railroad men in
the country, and a thoroughly honest
and straightforward gentleman. To dis
pense with his services would be a serious
calamity to the owners of the C, R. I. &
P., and they are not likely to injure
themselves simply to please Jay Gould
and his friends.
