This Company Will Likely Look After Financing of the Road. All tuckered out Scarcely enough energy to get home in the evening No rest after you do get home As tired in the morning as you are at night Back so lame that you can scarcely bend it Aches and throbs and pains even when you lie still Kidneys are to blame They're not taking the poison out of the blood Need help, and need it at once Other Topeka people have been in the same con ditionHundreds of them They've taken Doan's Kidney Pills And they've been cured Cured so quickly and permanently that they could scarcely believe their own senses. They'll tell you about the goodness of Doan's Kidney Pills Tell you with a glad earnestness that you can't help believing Read what one Topeka citizen has to say : Mr. F. T. Yale, No. 707 Quincy St., photographer at No. 617 Kansas avenue, rays: "Kidney complaint bothered me for about two years. At first I paid little attention to a slight pain across the small of my back, but finally it grew so bad I cou'.d scarcely attend to my work. When I stooped It was with the greatest difficulty that I could straight en and the kidney secretions were unnatural, distressing and annoy ing, and also disturbed my rest nights I was in pretty bad shape wnen I got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills at Rowley & Snow's drug Ktore, corner of Sixth St. and Kansas Ave. I noticed a decided relief after the third dose, and on finishing the treatment the backache dis appeared and the action of the kidney secretions was corrected."

Stilwell, of the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient, has returned from New York and will remain here until after the meeting of the directory of the Guar dian Trust company to be held next Fri day, when the matter of the connection of the trust company with the new rail road to be built by Mr. Stilwell will be decided upon. President Stilwell has awarded sev eral contracts for work on the new line, and construction from Port Stilwell, the Pacific coast terminus of the road, east ward, will be begun within a few days, as will also work at different points on the route between Kansas City and the Mexican border. Mr. Stilwell confirmed the report al ready published that a contract cover ing a period of 15 years and providing for close traffic interchange between the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul and the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient had been signed, under which through train ser vice will be maintained from Chicago to Port Stilwell, where connections will be made with steamship lines ta the Orient and South America. While Mr. Stilwell refused to confirm it, a report, which it is believed is en titled to credence, is current that an other important traffic arrangement for the new road to the Orient is about to be signed. As the contract with the Milwaukee covers the territory north of Kansas City pretty thoroughly it is ev ldently with a line reaching some other territory and, while those informed on the subject speak of it very guardedly it may not be amiss to speculate that thia new contract is to give the Orient road entrance to St. Louis. The Texas & Pacific was suggested in this connec tion, but it is not certain that is the line, in question. It is possible the con tract is to be with a California line. for a railway supply house, with head quarter's at Chicago. Mr. Mason is Well known in, Topeka. He was given the position of assistant chief clerk in Mr. Player's office by Mr. D. E. Cain, now chief clerk to General Manager Mudge.

VICTORY OF PEACE IS THEIRS. St. Louis, Mo., June 27. Kxcept for the boycott and 300 extra policemen on duty, but little remains to tell of the great strike on the St. Louis Transit company's system inaugurated May 8. Cars are in operation on all the lines without hindrance, and are well patron ized, except on those running north and south. Many thousand persons, because of the boycott and through sympathy for the strikers, patronize wagons and busses manned by ex-street railway em ployes. This is especially true in the north and south sections of the city. Today the remainder of the force of Sheriff Pohlman's posse comitatus about 600 men, was mustered out of ser vice for good, the board of police com missioners deciding they were no long er needed. It was at first intended that all but 1.000 men should be discharged, half of which would be retained for ac tive service, the whole number to be called for duty on. July 4, to suppress any trouble that might occur then. President Edward Whitaker, of the St. Louis Transit company, states that he knows nothing of a report that three disinterested citizens had submitted to an officer of the company a proposed plan of settlement of the street car strike, and that the coTiittee had be told to go to the strikers and first get their approval. At the strikers' headquarters no prop osition looking to a possible strike set tlement has been presented. James O'Connell, Pres. I. A. of M. Hugh Doran. D. Douglas Wilson, V. Pres. I. A. of M.

The three persons on the right comprise the committee of the National Metal Trades' As sociation, and the three on the left the committee of the International Association of Machinists. The board was or ganized mainly through the efforts of Walter ,L Pierce, Secretary and General Manager of the Lidgerwood Man ufacturing Company, of New Tork City. The meeting held in Chicago was the first successful step that has been taken to bring about harmonious relations between the employer and the employe. A joint agreement was signed recently by both committees, and through this agreement strikes and lockouts in those trades are things of the past Any dif ference between employer and employe which can not otherwise be settled will be adjusted by a national committee of arbitration.
