Following up an application filed before the state railway commission several months ago and turned down by that board, lumber dealers of Omaha and South Omaha tiled a formal complaint against all of the railroads In the state, asking for a reduction of intrastate rates to Ne braska points. The reductions asked Xor are on lumber and other articles of the same class taking the same rate and on doors and sashes and other articles of similar class taking what tbe complainants call arbitrary rates. The present rates are Included ln the complaint by reference to them. It is complained that they are high, cruel, extortionate und several other things and that the lumberman's trunk lies helpless beneath the nailed heel of the railroads. Yet no specific reduction Is sought.

HOW lANGE MAKES SILVER Scranton Alchemist Tells 8ecrt efj Turning Base Metals Into More ' Precious Stuff. , r Scranton, Pa. Dr. F. W. Lange, the Scrjinton physician and amateur sum chenilst In whose laboratory CharleJ C. IflcRlnson, the "bunker. Inhaled th4 fumes which were the remote rauaw of his death, has given out a slgnctf statement discussing his supposed dlsl rovery of a means to transmute baa4 metals into silver. ' Doctor Lange's first experience wltb metals was gained as an apprentice? tinsmith In Scranton, where be was born ln 1861. He began work in the! tlnshop when he was fifteen and by! working-days and studying nlghtsj saved money and prepared hlmselfj to enter Wesleyan university, at Mld- dletown, Conn. He was twenty-threw when he entered college. j He studied chemistry under Prc feasor Atwater and biology under Pro feasor Conn, and after taking his de gree of bachelor of philosophy ln 188 Dr. F. W. Lange. r entered Hahnemann college. In Phil adelphia, where he was graduated ln 1891. Since then Doctor Lange has practised medicine and has Interested himself in several Industrial enter prises. In bis statement, which he calls "The trtte story of Dr. P. W. Lange's, sensational discovery," ho discusses la very general terms his reported diss covery of at least a piece of the phi losopher's stone and says: "What I have been evolving may be -an apparent confirmation of the the ory of alchemy, in which, however, hav.e. nolijtercst, as the things that Interest toe arfriunly auch things as can be done scientifically." At the same time he aska ln large capitals; "Is my new metal silver? Does Its manufacture mean that I have transmuted metals?" The doe tor answers his own question by say ing he thinks it Is. "An Investigation of the chemicals; involved in the preparation of a nei smokeless powder," Doctor Lan go says, led him Into Investigation "along: the lines of nitrates and chlorides and the carbonates." "Incidentally,'' he says, "I met a party who threw out a statement that led me to Investigate the combination of certain matrices by the use of which synthetically larger quantities of the elementary matter could be developed." This then is Doctor Lange's spec I Ac claim that be is able to combine sil ver with fluxes and obtain a greatly increased amount of silver. Tha old alchemists believed that silver would, breed silver and gold. As to how far In bis opinion the growing of silver can b carried. Doc tor Lange says that the report that he can make a ton of silver from an orig inal small quantity Is quite ridiculous and that he has succeeded "ln mul tiplying molecules ln that proportion. Reviewing his discovery Doctor Lange says that while his discovery "may be an apparent confirmation ot the theory of alchemy." that doesn't; Interest him, and that he does not care "to waste time about the phU losopher's stone."
