RAILBOADJIEWS.
Freight Car Famine Extends All
Oyer the Country.
Lines Compel Odd Re-shipments
to Hold Own Cars.
COAL IN DIRT CARS.
Santa Fe Hauls It in Grade Re
duction Equipment.
All the Roads Have Full Use For
Their Cars.
Railroad companies all over the coun
try are complaining of a shortage of
freight cars. The lines find great diffi
culty in furnishing all the equipment
their patrons desire. The situation has
reached such a stage that the officials
of many companies have stopped trying
to furnish the foreign line demand.
Ordinarily the big companies are well
satisfied to rent out their surplus cars
to the smaller lines, rather than have
them idle. On the other hand when cars
are scarce and there are not enough to
move traffic of their own origination
they refuse to let them go off their own
tracks.
The present situation has reached this
point. Some time ago the Cotton Belt
and Kansas City Southern made such
refusals. At their terminals such loads
as lumber have been transferred to cars
of connecting lines. Lines in the south
seem to have suffered most by the car
famine. In and around Nashville there
is a great shortage. One line that enters
that city was nearly five hundred cars
short in one day, besides having big
demands made upon it by officials of
other roads, which, were therefore re
fused. Car service on the Santa Fe Is admit
tedly pressed hard by heavy traffic. Box
cars, flat cars and coal cars especially
are short. Some of the dumping cars
that have been purchased 'for work on
grading the roadbed have been utilized
to haul coal. The Rock Island also re
ports that there is something to do for
all available freight cars and other
roads have their equipment in full de
mand. Rush conditions usually prevail
in the fall of the year, but the" present
season eclipses all previous pressures.
RUMS ON THE BRANCH.
Trust la Providence to Get Oyer the
Division.
An official of one of the roads run
ning into Topeka had occasion recently
to enter into correspondence with yard
masters and switch-light men along the
line regarding the signal lamps used
within their jurisdiction. He wanted
to know whether they were looked after
by railroaders or people living near the
stations. If by the latter, whether the
farmers took them to light their way
to bed, and a number of other facts look
ing to the improvement of the service.
The information requested came along
in installments, the monotony of which
was finally broken by the following let
ter from a functionary on one of the
small branches in western Kansas:
"Dear Sir We do not have any signal
lights on our branch. We do not need
or require any. By the light of the
moon, the gleam of the stars and the
help of God we manage to get over our
division. Yours truly, ."
STOCK SHIPMENTS HEAVY.
Santa Fe Moving Many Feeding
Cattle From the Southwest
TV. A. Combs, assistant general live
stock agent of the Santa Fe, with head
quarters at Kansas Citv. has this to say
about the live stock business of that sys
tem: "The movement could not be very
much better than it is at present. Sen
tember was the best live stock month
ever enjoyed by the Santa Fe, and thus
far in October we are keeping up the
September average. Cattle are coming
out of the southwest and are being taken
to Iowa, where they will be fed from the
bumper corn crop of that state. The
ranges of the southwest have more cat
tle on them than anyone can estimate an.l
they will nearly all be moved to the feed
ing stations of the corn belt. The outlook
is certainly flattering for a continued good
movement of all kinds of live stock, es
pecially cattle and hogs."

NEWTON AND PTTHCELL.
Missouri Pacific Proposes to Put On
a New Train.
Several superintendents have expressed
themselves as favoring a new local pas
senger train on the Missouri Pacific be
tween New tor. and Purcell, leaving New
ton at noon and arriving at its destina
tion at 4 p. m. It is probable that it will
be put on November 7. The traffic is
too heavy for the present service on the
Oklahoma division. By leaving Okla
homa City on the new train at 10 a. m.
and connecting with the east-bound fast
mail at Newton, passengers can be put
into St Louis at 7 o'clock next morning,
which about equals the time made by
the Frisco from Oklahoma.

WHAT THE SIGN SAID.
A store In 121st street, with a laudable
desire to satisfy customers, had the fol
lowing sign painted and hung in several
conspicuous places: "Money refunded or
you can exchange for anything in the
store."
The regular customers nodded approv
ingly when they saw this, as the rule of
the house had been previously that no
goods could be exchanged.
The first day the signs were up sev
eral sums of money were refunded.
When the store opened the next morn
ing the signs were gone and a literary
man was engaged to write one less am
biguous. There was a reason for this . Late
in the afternoon of the day the signs
were used a young fellow from down
town bought a pair of 50-cent suspend
ers in the store and a few minutes after
ward approached a floorwalker and said
they were unsatisfactory, relates the
Philadelphia Item.
"Very well," said the floorwalker,
affably. "Do ycu wish your money
back?"
"No." replied the purchaser; "I be
lieve I'll exchange."
"Just as you please." said the smiling
floorwalker. "Will you have another
pair of suspenders?"
"I think not; I'll just look around and
let you know when I find something that
suits me."
In less than half an hour the down
town young man called the floorwalker
to the counter and said: "That's what
I want; those with the silver back." And
he pointed out an expensive toilet set,
which comprised military hair brushes,
silver mug and shaving brush, razor,
manicure set, soap box and a fine leather
case to keep them in.
"But you are joking," said the floor
walker. "They are worth twenty pairs
of suspenders."
"1 can't help that," replied the other.
"T'm taking you at your word. There
is you sign, 'Money refunded, or you
can exchange for anything in the store.'
It's optional with me. and I wish to ex
change for 'anything in the store.' This
is the 'anything that suits me."
They wrangled for awKile and the pro
prietor was called. He read the sign
several times, and then said: "You are
a very bright young man. It's on us
this time."
Turning to the floorwalker he said:
"Make the exchange as he desires, and
haul down those signs before he has
time to buy anything else."
Merchants cannot be too careful in the
use of this wonderful language of ours.

Watertown, N. Y., Oct. 18. Adlai E.

PHENOMENAL
In Size and Enthusiasm Were
the Crowds
That Turned Out to near Bryan
at Albany and Troy.
Albany, N. Y., Oct 18. William J.
Bryan ran around two sides of a tri
angle yesterday from Hudson to Al
bany, inclusive, and probably spoke to
as cosmopolitan a lot of people as he has
addressed during the campaign. At
Hudson he spoke to a gathering of busi
ness people of all classes; at Troy to the
capacity of an opera house and with an
overflow meeting of collar factory and
laundry employes; at Mechanicsville to
railroad people; at Cohoes to the mass
of the employes of the cotton and wool
en mills and at Albany to two immense
meetings, one in the opera house and
one outside composed of the beet ele
ment of the city. The great meetings
of this trip were held at Troy, the home
of ex-Senator Murphy and Albany, the
home of ex-Senator Hill. Mr. Hill is
absent in the west. At both Troy and
Albany the meetings were phenomenal
ly large and enthusiastic, immense
overflows having to be held to accom
modate those who desired to see or hear
Mr. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan alluded to many things
which he has not mentioned at many
other places during the campaign.
At Hudson he said:
"I believe that Mexico is far better
off because we took our flag down from
the capital when the Mexican war was
over and brought it back to the Rio
Grande. I think Mexico is better today
and we are better than if we held a car
pet bag government in place there by
means of bayonets and I think that self
government in Mexico, half Spanish and
half Indian, has developed the people
more and has brought them further than
would have been the case had we held
them under our domain and if you doubt
it look at Mexico and compare Mexico
with India. Under 30 years of self-government
Mexico has made more progress
than India has made in 150 years, op
pressed by an Anglo-Saxon soldiery.
They only have 100,000 English in India
out of 300 million, and it takes an army
of 70.000 British soldiers to take care of
the British population and it takes a na
tive army of 140,000 to help the British
army of 70,000 in its work of protection."
At Troy he said:
"I know that you are a persevering
people, for in this town you gave me a
majority four years ago, and your zeal
seems to have lasted for four years."
At Cohoes Mr. Bryan said:
"I recall a trip here only three years
ago, and I remember your cordial greet
ing at that time and I was much im
pressed by the falls that have been of so
much value to your industries. I have
been sorry to hear that water has been
scarce in the Mohawk and I suppose
that if the Republican party can claim
credit for the abundance of rain in the
west it is responsible for the lack of wa
ter here. Certainly it is a poor rule that
does not work both ways, and if a farm
er ought to vote the Republican ticket
because he got rain you ought to vote
the Democratic ticket because you did
not get any here.
"We will soon find the army here de
manding the punishment of an inno
cent man, as the army in France de
manded the punishment of Dreyfus, a
man so innocent that the president felt
that he must pardon as soon he was
convicted because of the outraged sense
of justice expressed throughout the
world."
He paid a high tribute to Lafayette
and his service to the American colonies
in their war of freedom.and spoke of the
gift of the statue of liberty in New York
harbor from the people of the French
republic, and asked: Shall we take that
statue down and send it back to France
and tell the people of France that we
are not in the liberty business an more?
Shall we send over to England and get a
statue of William the Conqueror and
place it in New York harbor to indicate
the change that has taken place in our
national ideas?"
At Albanv, meetings were not bgun as
promptly as some that had taken place
elsewhere, a parade keeping the assem
blages in the street and theater waiting.
The theater was filled to repletion and a
large overflow on the outside commanded
Mr. Bryan's attention. Mr. Bryan's voice
showed palpable signs of wear. He said
in part: .
"I remember in 1S96, your state Repub
lican convention adopted a platform some
thing like this: 'We demand that tha
government shall be conducted by busi
ness men on business principles and in
the interest of the business Interests of
the country,' or words to that effect, but
the trouble is that the men who talk that
wav so limit definition of a business man
that very few are included. Is a farmer
a business man? Well, I think not. He
does work. That is all he does. He
commences In the morning and works all
days, commences in the spring and works
all summer, and it at the end of the
summer he is able to show enough as the
result of his labor to realize a small per
centage on the investment he thinks he
is doing well. But he is no business man.
Who is? The business man who goes on
board of trade at 9 o'clock and makes
before noon betting on the price of what
the farmer raises more than the farmer
can make raising it. Is the laboring man
a business man? No. He simply converts
raw material into finished products. He
is not a business man. Who is? The man
who trades in what this producer pro
duces I believe that every man who by
his muscle or his brain adds to the great
ness the wealth or the glory of this na
tion is a business man and I believe elec
tion dav is the most important business
dav of "all the year.
"The Republican party goes on the
theory that society is built from the top.
They say take care of the well to do and
they will take care of those who are not
well to do, and when you tell them of the
storv of Lazarus and Dives they say:
'What a lucky man Lazarus was to have
a Dives near so he could get the crumbs
that fell from Dives table.' A man in
your state in 1896 said that the prosperity
of the laboring man and the farmer de
pended upon the prosperity of the banker
and the business man. He got it just
reversed. The prosperity of the business
man depends upon the prosperity of the
farmer and the laboring man for until
wealth is produced there is no wealth to
exchange. And yet the Republicans, if
thev built a house as they built society,
wuold build the roof first and then hang
the house to the roof. They go on the
theory that a man who has a place to
work ought to be under some obligation
to his emplover. No man etnpl-yes an
other unless the man employed can make
enough to pay his own wages and a pro
fit besides to the man who employs him.
And yet when election day come.- the em
ployer sometimes thinks that the man
who works for him sells his citizenship
when he sells his labor. And often the
emplover tries to coerce the laboring man.
If it is right for an employer to vote the
vote of his employe, then I insist that
the law should be changed so as to give
everv employer as many votes as he has
employes. As it is now they sometimes
get awav and if the vote belongs to the
citizen and not the employer then every
citizen who prizes his ballot and appre
ciates the responsibility of citizenship
should speak out against the intimidation
that is often practised against those who
are in the employ of others."
Mr. Bryan then took up the auestions
of trusts' and militarism along the usual
lines. He called attention to Governor
Roosevelt's argument that the people
were not afraid of a laree standing army
and said If any one asked who was afraid
of a latjger standing army to tell him
Governor Roosevelt was, as evidenced by
his recent statements that a large armv

Seals With the Military Situation in
Hawaiian Islands.
Washington, Oct. 18. In the annual re
port of Major General Shatter, command
ing the department of California, there
is a report from Major George Ruhlrn.
depot quartermaster at Honolulu. The
garrison at Honolulu consists of two bat
teries, Sixth artillery, wh t are In qu ir
ters at Camo McKinloy, four and a half
miles from the business renter of Hono
lulu. He says that the troops should be
quartered in plain fram" buildings, rath
er than in canvas, as the climate along
the seashore is very destructive to the
latter.
No action has been taken looking to the
selection of a permanent site for a mili
tary post In the Hawaiian islands.
Speaking of the bubonic plague. Major
Ruhlen says that no person connected
with the military service was exposed to
or took the disease. The only effects of
the plague were that the quarantine re
strictions prevented for a time the use
of Honolulu as a port for the transport
service.
The transport service has used the port
of Honolulu quite extensively during the
year. During the year there stopped at
Honolulu, enroute from San Francisco to
Manila, fifty-three trinsports with troops
and supplies; one with supplies only, thir
teen with horses, mules and supplies, and
one hospital ship.
In addition to the land required for mili
tary reservations the report advocates
the purchase of about 30 acres more in
order to make it desirable as a military
site. One reservation contains 1314 acres
and another 14. 4'"' acres. The latter is IS
miles from Honolulu and is about seven
miles from the railway station at Pearl
Citv. Major Ruhlen thinks this site is
very well adapted for a military reserva
tion. A considerable portion of both
these reservations was leased in lS for
thirty vt;ir. and the-e leases will not ex
pire util J?3T. The lands are mostly used
for grazing purposes.

Catarrh is catarrh wherever locnteil.

It does not require one renvdy to cure
catarrh of the head, and another to cut"
catarrh of the lungs, and mill another to
cure catarrh of the stomai h. and an
