ON THE SCALES.
A GREAT many interesting facts may be dis
covered with a pair of scales, but it is doubt
ful if any single fact will be more interesting and
valuable to the average woman than the weight of
her shoes.
For this tells her the number of ounces that must
be lifted thousands of times each day, and, a little
calculation will show that she lifts tons of shoe
leather a day no small labor in itself.
The " Dorothy Dodd ' shoe saves the lifting oi
more than one and a half tons every day. A pair
of "Dorothy Dodd" shoes' are . several ounces
lighter than ordinary shoes. The feet are just so
much more comfortable, and you are so much less
tired. Curiously enough the lighter a shoe, the
longer it
wears.

GROWING SERIOUS.
The Freight Blockade Threatens In
dustrial Prosperity of Country.
Pittsburg. Pa.. Nov. 21. The freight
blockade in the Pittsburg district is grow
ing worse daily. It threatens the indus
trial prosperity and is impeding this by
keeping many furnaces and mills idle.
Interests suffering most from the so-call-f
d car shortage are losing thousands upon
thousands of dollars.
Due to the freight blockade there are
idle in the Pittsburg district fi&.fiOO men,
who are losing in daily wages $162,000.
In the Shenango and Alahoning Valleys
find the Cleveland district there were 22
blast furnaces shut down yesterday.
These are operations of the merchant fur-
nacemen. In three months past they
have not come up to 40 per cent of their
normal output. At the end of the year
they will have to carry over at least 40
per cent of their contracts taken for this
year's delivery. The idle furnaces throw
nhout 2,200 men out of work, whose daily
earnings are about $0,t'.oo.
There were about l,"i"0 of the necessary
2.200 cars d livcred to the coke regions
yesterday, but the Merchant furnacemen
expect little relief from this, the heavier
operators getting most of the coke, while
the smaller consumers suffer. For days
nnd days of the past fortnight deliveries
of cars to the (Miking region ranged from
400 to son of the 2.2i0 required. For over
m week some of the Merchant furnace in
terests have not had a single car of coke
pass through th blockaded Conway
yards. In these yards there are now
about 4.000 cars, the movement of which
Is almost entirely blockaded.
Mines are idle throughout the Pittsburg
district because nougii ears cannot be se
cured to keep them going. An estimate
of the numbers of nun so thrown idle
places the figure at 20.000 and at a time
when the output is sorely needed. These
men are losing in daily wages about
the decision was sustained. But one
judge excepted from the judgment and
declared that such testimony was not
only worthless, but positively danger
ous. The court of appeals has reversed
the court below and sustained that dis
senting judge, holding: that it is mani
festly absurd for men, however skilled
in the microscopic examination of hand
writing, to swear to the identity of the
hand which had made a series of mere
straight lines.
A more palpable reduction of the ease
to absurdity could not well be had. Tf
such testimony could be admitted as ev
idence there is no limit to be drawn
around the field of the handwriting ex
pert. In view of the many proved blund
ers which they have committed their
work is to be regarded today as little
better than systematic guessing". But
the spectacle which nhakes all nublic
confidence in them is the ransrinsr of
expert against expert to swear to dia
metrically opposite statements. So flex
ible is the "science" that it is now possi
ble to prove any proposition whatever
from the same premise or exhibit.
New York. Nov. 21. At a meeting of
executive officials of central freight
lines, the trunk lines and southern roads
held at the Trunk Line association's
headquarters in this city, rates in the
territory controlled by the association
have been senerally advanced, says the
Journal of Commerce. The meeting was
called primarily to discuss export rates,
particularly those rates on southern
lines from St. Louis territory, but re
solved itself into a conference to ad
vance rates. The increase is in line
with action usually taken at the close
of navigation.
It is learned on high authority that an
increase of 2hi cents per 100 pounds, Chicago-New
York fcasis, on grain and grain
products was decided upon. A correspond
ing advance in rate on glucose, glucose
syrup, corn oil. corn syrup, etc., was
made. The rate on dressed beef was i
creased 5 cents per 100 pounds, both do
mestic and export, and a cents a nun
dred also on provisions. The present
rates on grain products from Chicago to
rsew York are: Grain, export, 13V
cents; grain, domestic, 17V4 cents; grait.
products, exnort, la cents; domestic.
1TH cents. The present rates on dressed
beef and provisions, both export and
domestic, are 40 cents and 25 cents, re
spective!;'. The new rates will take
effect on December 8.
As to the export rate situation on
southern lines, it was alleged that some
of the roads had been shading their
rates from St. Louis territory in favor
of southern as against northern ports,
bringing them below the differential. A
satisfactory understanding was reached
in this matter, as is indicated by the
agreement among the representative
lines to advance rates. One of those
present at the meeting is quoted as hav
ing said:
"In former seasons, when there was
considerable rate cuttinfr and the rate
situation generally was demoralized, in
creases decided upon brought the rates
up to perhaps not more than the nor
mal tarif. The advance now agreed
upon will, in view of the present favor
able conditions, be a real increase."
One of the reasons given for this ac
tion was the general advance in wares
to employes which is being ffranted by
various railroads. It was also plain that
if there ever was need of cutting rates
to secure business, there certainly is no
necessity for such action now.
Northern to the Milwaukee, or vice ver
sa, as in either case delav Is certain.
.November V4 K. D. Sewall. assistant
general superintendent of the Milwau
kee, posted a brief notice on change to
the effect that until further notice, grain
received by the Milwaukee could not be
delivered to the Great Northern owin;
to the accumulation of cars on track. On
the 17th another notice from the same
source was posted statins that the Mil
waukee could not deliver cars to the
Eastern Minnesota owing to the accum
ulation on the tracks of that road.
This second shot stirred the Great
Northern to action and brought out a
heavy return fire. A. L. Scott, manager
of the Terminal association, received a
letter from the office of B. Claritv. local
superintendent of the Great Northern.
It said:
"Post on 'change today a notice to
grain men that until further notice the
Great Northern will not receive cms
from the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railway or elevators along its lines. This
is found necessary owing to the inabil
ity of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul railway to take deliveries from us
with any dependable degree of prompt
ness or regularity, resulting in great
congestion in our yards, a thing I am
determined to put a stop to in the fu
ture." This Is the last to this time from eith
er side, and it loos like a draw in U
third round. . V '

Two
Great Railroads Quarrel Over
Exchange of Freight.
Minneapolis, Nov. 21. The Great
Northern and the Milwaukee roads are
at loggerheads over the interchange of
freight. There is a congestion at points
intermediate and some thousands of
cars are "hung up" on tracks in Minne
apolis, where the two roads connect. The
Milwaukee says the Great Northern has
not handled the business with proper
celerity, and the Great Northern nuts
the blame upon the Milwaukee. Mean
while the cash wheat buvers at the
Chamber of Commerce have to be care

.Washinertnn Star.
Never before was the stock of the
hand-writing expert, so-called, at such a
low ebb as today, with the celebrated
Molineux trial closed. Since that rae
was finished, under circumstances cast
ing serious rcllettinns on the value of
this sort of testimony in criminal cases,
the court of appeals of New York state
has rendered a decision which stiil fur
ther increases the public distrust of this
method of proving legal propositions.
The case in point turned upon the vali
dity of a will. The signature was ad
mitted, hut throue-h it had been drawn
r serie-s of vertical lines of cancellation.
One side contended that the signer had
himself drawn them, the other that the
cancellation had been done by another
without the knowledge of the signer. At
the first trial expert witnesses swore
that in their judgment these lines were

The Conviction of Butler.
Baltimore News:
Col. Edwurd Butler, contractor, polit
ical boss, millionaire, has been decorated
by a Missouri court with a suit of prison
stripes fur offering- a bribe to a member
of the St. Louis board of health to in
duce that officer to vote Mr. Butler an
advantageous contract. Unless the higher
court finds something technically wrong
with the trial of Col. Butler, that gentle
man will be permitted to meditate for
three years in a solitary penitentiary cell
on the retribution which sometimes comes
to those who get rich by wholesale rob
bery of their fellow men. Col. Butler's
offense was worse than larceny, for he
not only robbed, his own people, but in
order to do it he corrupted his own polit
ical household.
A man in the decline of life, old enough
to have a Fon in congress, Col. Butler will
feel keenly the ignominy which he has
garnered for his advanced years. The
days made brighter for the just man by
the proud consciousness of a life-work
well done will be darkened for Col. But
l?r by the Fhame of detected crime and
the dull misery of the prison pen. A man
who led men and ruled them will find
himself penned up by the very men he
tried to use as political pawns, and de
prived not only of the good things which
were the fruit of his efforts, but even of
nature's fresh air and bright sunshine,
the heritage of the meanest beast of the
field.
Col. Butler's fate should be a warning
to corruptionists the country over. It
shows that when righteous public indig
nation is once aroused, no criminal U
powerful enough to escape punishment
The conviction of Col. Butler should be
an inspiration the country over to those
who believe in the essential integrity of
popular institutions. It indicates that
there is sufficient virtue in the people to
compel the cleansing of any political
household when the people are convinced
that cleansing is necessary. The respon
sibility of showing the necessity lies with
political leaders. In this case it is par
ticularly significant that the punishment
of the offender has been brought about
by the very party which Col. Butler has
endeavored for a lifetime to corrupt and
control.
