WHAT TO DO. There is comfort in the knowledge so often expressed that Dr. Kilmer's? (Swamp-Hoot, the great kidney and bladder remedy, fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the back, j kidney, liver, bladder and every part of the urinary passage. It corrects ina bility to hold water and scalding pnitt in passing it. or bad effects following use of Honor, wine or beer, rnd over torn' s that unpleasant necessity of be ing compelled to go often during th. day, and to get up many times during the night. The mild and the extraord inary effect of Swamp-Hoot is soon re alized. It stands the hurhest for it wonderful euros of the most distressing cases. If you need a medicine yoti should have the best. Sold by dru exists in lifty-cent and one-dollar sizes. You may have a sample bottle of Swamp- Root, the great kidney remedy spective of the merits of the two systems uie move is causing: intense feeling on both sides, and the situation is made worse by the fact that the Rock Island is capturing- through Peter McDonald a very substantial proportion of the immigration buslines sirom New- York to Colorado eom muu points and California. Furthermore, the steamship agencies are dissatislied with the immigrant bureau, and negotia tions are on now between certain influen tial steamship lines and the Rock Island with respect to business wrhich can be con trolled by the former. Should the measures which it. is charged by Rock Tsland interests are being pursued lie forced there is no telling what miht result. The Rock Island apparently is in position to make rerrisals on "Western pas-sf-iifii r association lines, hut the officials of the company are not foretelling what they will do when the emergency arises.

The change in the control of the Pennsylvania railroad, involving as it would similar changes in the Baltimore ft Ohio, the Reading, Jersey Central, Norfolk & Western, Chesapeake & Ohio, and half a dozen smaller properties, would be accompanied by a financial upheavel that would make some start ling changes on the railroad as well as on the banking map. The great Pennsylvania system was forced to capitulate to John D. Rocke feller in 1S77, when it abandoned its sup port of the independent refineries and accepted the terms of the Standard Oil company unconditionally. At that time Andrew J. Cassatt bore the flag of truce. Wall street is wondering whether history is going to repeat itself. puny must be reduced from $5,000,000 to $1.0(.ii',COO. and the property of the com pany must be segregated from the Southern Pacific.

Vanderbilts Tighten Their Grip on the Northwestern Railroad. Chicago. June 10. The hold which the Vanderbilts have on the Northwestern railwav prooertv has been materially increased during the last year and is now apparentlv so firm that a scare like that which tiie P.oek island interests gave them is impossible of repetition. This fact developed in the forty-fourth annual meeting of the stockholders which held here yesterday, when the shares voted bv the Vanderbilt interests were greatly in excess of those voted last year. So far as could he learned not a hos tile interest appeared In me meeunj, and if the Moores and Mr. Deeds retain any interest in the Northwestern there was no evidence of the fact. The con ditions of affairs shown at the meeting indicate that unless the Vanderbilts chose to permit it there is no danger of Northwestern control falling into other hands. CHICAGO GETS OFFICES.

The growing strength of the Rock is land system, which now has to be reck oned with on all questions affecting toe niirili, ilie south and the wist, and the snath anil middle west, is the' cause of the iuu.i nding clash.

The Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railroad bridge over the Missouri river here has been advertised for sale at public auc tion June 10 at South Sioux City, Neb.

Topeka Doctor Cancels Obligations of North Topeka People. A Topeka doctor who has a largv North Topeka practice, and who has. moreover, been doing a great deal of free work among- the flood sufferers, said toda': "I am going to send to each one or mv patients who lives in North Topeka a receipted bill for whatever is on my books against that person. I don't want my name to appear in connection with this, but it strikes me that it is a good plan for all physicians to follow." APPEALS TO UNCLE SAM. How the Flood Sufferers ia North To peka Were Cared For. The following is by C. C. Pierce in the St. Joe Press of Monday: Ten thousand homeless people who once lived in North Topeka are in dire need of food. It is not all over the worst is yet to come unless instantly large quantities of food are rushed to the flood stricken residents of an obliterated town. Food supplies in Topeka are almost exhausted. Those who lost all they had are being eared for at the homes and by the committees of South Topeka people, but the resources of the South Topekans are growing scant. Liberal ouside aid is imperative and pressing. Bedding and clothing are needed, but food must be had and at once. There is not a living soul in North Topeka except the gangs of men who are toiling to clean the former city and to restore some semblance of order and healthy conditions. It is a deserted city. No one is allowed to live there at pres ent. Soldiers and police and deputy sheriffs grimly patrol its boundaries and prevent anyone's entering without prop er credentials. Where are the ten thousand people who once lived there? They are being cared for in the houses of those who lived on the other side of the river and were more fortunate, al though many of them suffered losses in the flood. When a city no larger than Topeka is obliged to care for 10.000 people sud denly, it may do so for a few hours, a few days but Already its resources are being taxed to the utmost.- Refugees from the flood are being given all that people have to give. The relief committees are doing noble work. The system is excellent. Good order prevails. The people mani fest a brave and even cheerful spirit. No one is encouraged to complain. Many are too dazed to protest against the fate which overtook them. Topeka really does not yet know what has happened to her. Even the able and energetic chairman of the relief committee. Captain H. M. Fltilips, said to me: "Do tell me some thing about the splendid rescue work of the St. Joseph party hosv many lives did you people save? "Did you carry off all cf the missing 1.000 as seeing to be the general opinion here? We have been too busy providing the people, with food and shelter to in vestigate the work of our noble neigh bors. "We only know that St. Joseph came to our aid in a time of awful trouble and that its people did grand work. "We hope that all the missing people were saved by St. Joseph." And so you see that in the midst of their trouble and work they do not know anywhere near the right number of those who were drowned and they have not even thought of estimating the extent of the damage to property. All they can do is to work unceasing ly to prevent move death and more suffering. There is no lull after the storm. "We need things to eat," said Chair man Philips to me, "but Ave wouldn't ask another dime from St. Joseph. It has done so much. We can never for get its help." And everywhere in Topeka it waa the same. Everywhere the people al most embraced one when he said he was from St. Joseph. "God bless St. Joe," was heard every hour in the day. Men, women and chil dren repeated it. "You can't pay for a thing In this town of Topeka," they said to me when they learned that Mr. Pyles and I rep resented the Commercial club: "it's no use. your money is no good. We aren't qu:te penniless on this side of the river and let us give you a meat auu ucu while you're here." And thev kept watch to see that we didn't spend a cent. We expostulated and tried to pay for the few things we wanted. The men with us would step in ahead at. a cigar store and say: "These men are from St. Joseph," and the storekeeper w ould wave your money away and shake hands and say, "Well, the people from your town are the stuff." And we had to keep our money. Gratitude toward St. Joseph was evi dent on all sides. It was a wonderfully sad scene cal culated to make a man forget the stern business of life and think of his fellow of $5.00 each to be given to the School Children of America.

As we approached the bridge we found an enormous" crowd. We were questioned and when we said we were from St. Joseph a cheer went up and another and another. "Make way there these men are from St. Joseph, let them cross the bridge first," yelled someone and at once thi crowd fell back.
