A. T. Stewart was one of the greatest merchants ever known lu this or any other
country. The old Stowart store is today a model for the world,"1 notwithstanding
the numerous changes of ownership, since his death. John "Wanamaker was shrewd
enough to see that tho Stewart name still moans much, and so lie spans the years and
says on the sign "Wanamaker, formerly A. T. Stewart & Co."
The Sam Slicks are as numerous today, perhaps, as ever, but they have discov
ered that the people aro wise to their fake advertising and fraudulent schemes and
so thov hire experts to dish up a tale in plausible phraseology to catch the unwary.
TODAY", AS EVER, THEY WILL BEAK WATCHING. People saydaily it you
know values and are real careful, you may get bargains EVEN from the BARNUMS.
You don;t have to know in this store It has been aptly said: "A child can buy

Representatives of the Omaha-Chicago
roads aro greatly exercised over tho ac
tion of tho Chicago Board of Trade In
filing complaint with tho Interstate Com
merce commission, asking that tho rate
on grain from Missouri river points to
Chicago bo reduced from 12 cents per 1W
pounds, tho present rate, ,to 7 cents.
All of tho Omaha representatives ad
mit that this reduction would restoro Chi
cago to Its place as tho grain market for
Missouri river territory, but that it would
bankrupt tho roads it they should be
forced to carry the grain at this rate.
They contend that on an SO.OOO pound ca
pacity car, which Is tho type of the new
cars In use, under the present rate the
gross revenues derived from hauling a
car of wheat to Chicago Is $06. However,
they Buy this Is not all profit, for there
are fixed charges hat have to como out.
According to railroad men, the fixed
charges on an 80,000 pound car aro as fol
lows: Switching, $10; elevation, J6; cooper
age, $C; leaving S74 for hauling the car GO)
miles. If theso wero the only churges,
the railroad men say they could pay ex
penses, but according to them they are
not. Tlfcy Insist that thero Is a shrink
age charge that will average not far from
J20 per car, duo to loss of grain n hand
ling and leakage along the rood. This
brings the revenue down to tSi per car.
On a basis of the proposed rate of Tb
cents per 100 pounds, railroad men say
the fixed chatges would be practically the
same, while the gross revenue would be
reduced to JB0 and the net, aside from the
transportation, to $18. On a 60,000 pound
capacity car, they say that handling of
wheat from Chicago to Omaha at 7&
cents per 100 pounds would, as a mat
ter of fact, run tho roads in debt, The
gross haul on these cars would be but (45
each, while the fixed charges and shrink
age would remain practically the same
as on the SO.OOO pound capacity cars Ml,
leaving but ?1 per car for transportation
charges and doing the business.
Railroad men of all tho lines admit that
tho 12 cent rate to Chicago Is out of line
with the 19 cent rate to Now Orleans, but
that the reduction proposed by the Chi
cago Board of Trade Is much too great.
They do not bcliovo the position can bo
maintained before the commission.
