The opinion is very general that it will simply stand pat and let the other roads work out their own salva tion as best they can. The Wisconsin Central is now where it can afford to be independent and require the other roads to g"o to it if they want any settlement of the existing troubles. The impres sion prevails that it will not yield an inch until all the pvievances from which it has suffered for a long time and borne with remarkable patience are all redressed and it is assured some kind of equality for all time to come. A settlement of the existing- troubles can be reached only by making it im portant concessions. 600,000 POUNDS OF POWDER. This la Amount Required to Break Backbone of Rockies. Albuquerque, N. M., June 25. Horace Middle tori, representing the Dupont Powder company in the southwest, is in Albuquerque for a few days. H has recently returned from a trip ove the survey of the Moffat, railroad, t he new short line from Denver to SmI Lake, an almost direct line which pene trates tiie very heart of the Ilockie, Mr. Middleton considers the Moffat line one of the most difficult feats of moun tain railroading ever attempted. I le has just closed a contract wit h one of the construction companies nov at work on the line for 600,000 oounrts of powder, which will be used in less than two and one-half miles of the road, most of whirh is a tunnel through almost solid sra nit e. "It is undoubt edly the most difficult engineering- teat that has ever been a tt'- mpted by a railroad in the west." said M r. Middb ton last nig:ht, "but when it is complete ther is no doubt that it will be every inch a railroad, and its value as a direct line to Salt Lake is well known. The work is un der th3 direction of Knrineer Ridsfw"a the man who built the Florence-Cripple Creek short line, another niece of vei remarkable railroad ins:. '"I have. Just come irom a trio over that part of the road, forty miles, whe n is now under construction, ami whh h it is expected w ill he completed by the last of the p r e sent year. This part of the road takes the line right to th-: mountains wlnre the rock work beqin. Twenty-six miles through the moun tains the most dilfieult part of the work is about to be let, and Georgro L. Good and Orman & Cook will probably cenv: in for the grt-ater part of it. These firms at present hold the contracts for the first forty miles. In this twenty six miles, which is to be let, there av thiT 1 y-six t u nnets, every one of them through solid granite and penetrating the very baekbone of the Koeky moun tains. The longest of these tunnels is t.7'0 for-t. while the next is .;,r9 feet. Moth of them penttrate the mountains at such depth that shafting- is impos. sible, and th5 rock will have to be re moved from the opening1. Work is t be pushed from both ends. Fumeles.s explosives are n be used exclusively, so that there will be no delay in th' work. Tt is eoing- to require more th:T two years to complete the line, and ir that time more then $LO.0ft0,OnO will be expanded, but it will be a magnificent raih oad when it is done." THEY MADE THE TRIP. Mexicans in Sealed Box Car Arrested at Their Destination. El Paso, Tex., June 2.1 Last night word was telegraphed to the police sta tion from Alamoirordo that a number of p ople were ridinpr in a sealed box car to Kl Paso. Officers Wilson and Ormond met the freight train, and upon investigation found in one of the cars, which was sealed tightly, ten Mexicans, consisting of five nu n, three women and two children. The party was held until further investigation could be made. They were taken to the police station where the mn were lucked up. charged as being suspicious characters. At trt station the men said they paid a hrake man on the train seven dollars if he would take them to Kl Paso. The brakeman agreed, so they said, and as sisted them in g- tting into a sealed car. by lifting the door which was loose. The car in which they were riding was filled with mixed merchandise, and from till indications notiiing had been tampered with by them. The con itictor on the train discovt red the people in the car from the noise they were making. The ear was Tightly closer and tiie people were almost suffocated when take;, from the car. The men arrested were Antonio Gonzales. Antonio Telles, l"r sola Jai quoz, Yiecnt" Hernandez and Louis t'arrisen. They will be held until the contents of the car can be checked, to see whether an thing has been mo lested. THEIR HEADS TOGETHER. Officials of Frisco-Rock Island Sys- tem to Meet in New York.

Thirty Years in Washington by Mrs. John A. Logan. This beautifully illustrated volume is a complete panorama of the countless interests of the national capital as seen by a famous woman who, as the wife of an influential senator, a society leader, ami the close friend of every mistress of the White House from Lincoln to the ; present time, has been in close touch with the inner life of Washington, and enjoyed rare privileges for studying the mighty activities of the government, such as no other person has ever before been able to command. Many distinguished men and women ! have long urged Mrs. Logan to give this volume to the world. She has received letters from thousands unknown to her, expressing the hope that it would be written. In her nref:loe she savs: "My first introduction to life in the city of Washington was in is., General ; Logan being then a member of congress, and for more than thirty years I have lived there almost continuously, an in terested observer of passing events. LIt has been my aim to show my readers, both by word and pictorial art, the wonders and the workings of the elaborate machinery of the government in motion, by leading them through the great departments and explaining what the. army of busy men and women workers do and how they do it; to show thtm the woi ks of art, the wonderful collections of relics and curiosities from every part of the worid, and the archi tectural Rlories and priceless treasures nf the capital: to describe and explain its giant activities: to take them fhrough the White House from the at tic to the cellar, through every forbid den room, and to portray not only its daily iife, past and present, but its bril liant social and otlieial functions as well; to tell the story of every president, and of every woman who has ever reigre.l in - the White House: to visit the treasury, the dead letter office, and lo solve the marvels and mysteries of every government industry; in short, to present every interesting phase of life and scenes in Washington."

Va., June 25. Six men were wounded last night, two of them ser iously by guards in the employ of the street railway who fired into a crowd of strike sympathizers at Main and Lom bardy streets just outside the city lim its where a big crowd was congesting all the evening. Officers of the company say the guards were fired on first and that they returned the fire with their shotguns. At least six persons were struck and two of them were seriously wounded in the back with buckshot. While this was taking place in the west side exciting scenes were enactel in the east end where cars were opera ted under the protection of the militia. All sorts of missiles were hurled at the cars and many obstructions were placed on the track. Finally the cars under the pilotage of a detachment of the Slich mond Howitzers, with a gatling gun were taken to the barns. All cars were withdrawn from the street at 9:43 for the night. Five companies of the Seventy-first regiment from Norfolk and Newport News are en route to this city to reinforce the troops already here. SENATOR FULLINGT0X. Resolutions on His Death Passed in the Senate. Out of regard for the death of Sen ator Georgre H. Fullir.Kton of Clay roun ty the senate took an e.arly adjourn ment Wednesday afternoon, pursuant to the passage of the following- resolu tion written by Se:.itor Miller of Usage: "Whereas, Since the adjournment of the senate. Hon. G. H. Fullington. an honored member of this body, has piss ed from earth to the life beyond; there fore be it "Resolved, That in the death of the Hon. Geo. H.

Agreed Probably no piece of legislation couid be contemplated which would reach greater number of the people who have suffered losses from the recent flood than the one providing for the compro mise of taxes levied for the present year. Two bills were introduced Wed nesday on this subject, one by Senator Chancy of Shawnee and one by Sen- ator cubbison of Wyandotte. Upon reference to the judiciary committee the Chancy bill was killed to give ivaj for the Cubbison bill. Hoth bills touch the same subject, but a comparison of the two led the sup porters of the Shawnee county measure to withdraw it in favor of the othr which directly authorizes the county commissioners to abate taxes. Senatot Kreii Dumont Smith narrowly escape! making a speech on this bill. He rns to the defense of the farmer. Original ly the draft provided only for th' abatement of tax on personal property and improvements on real property. Smith argued the point until it was amended so as to specify realty as well as personal property Senators Fitzpatriek and Rranine op posed the bill altogether. Fitzpatriek said the state's credit had already been injured by reports of flood damage. He said that to make the tax rolls show a vast depreciation of property values would deal a blow to the financial standing of the state that would not be recovered from in years. Branine said the county commissioners alreadv hari the mwsr tn ahj,ta anri would unciuestionablv do so w-ithout specific authorization of law. As the bill stands now it reads: Section 1. The board of county com- missioners of any county in the state of Kansas is hereby authorized to abate taxes levied for the year 1903 on such personal property and real property as I have been totally destroyed by the flood ; of said year, and to abate a just pro ' portion of all taxes levied upon such ; property as has been partially destroy -: ed by said tlood, provided that no i abatement to any one person, company or corporation shall exceed the tax ! levied upon fifteen hundred dollars as- Q aluaVn; . ancl Provided further. Mitu an a.!Pinauuii,i iui a utt iciiir :un must be made to said board on or be- fore September 1, lb03, and determined by said board before October 1, 190:j. Sec. 2. Said board shall record in its journal all abatements made. In case the abatement is made of a tax levied 1 upon real estate or improvements there on, said record shall describe such real estate as described upon the tax roll, give the full amount of the original tax levied, the amount of the abatement and the balance to be collected by the county treasurer. In case of personal property, the name of the person charg ed shall be stated, the amount of the original tax, the amount of the abate ment, and the balance to be collected. Sec. 3. The county clerk shall in each case of abatement note in the proper place on the tax roll., in red ink, the amount of tax to be collected, and the treasurer shall collect such amount aud no more. Sec. 4. The county clerk and county treasuier shall jointly certify to the state auditor and state treasurer the state tax rebated under the provisions of this act, and the county shall he credited on the books of said state of ficers for the amount of such rebates. Sec. 5. This act shall be in force from and after its passage and publication in the official state paper. WHITE S KEMAINS Found Wrapped in a Paper in an Ice Chest. "Washington. Jump 25.

Kx tia poiice wtre on duty within the police station and all the police officials were on hand. The crowd committed no ovrt act. however, beyond making a great noist. There were loud cries for the release of Cor well. The coroner's inquest was concluded last night and wht a word reached the pot ice station that the verdict did not implicate Corwell the authorities decided to release him on &,i bail. This was promptly fur nished bv Thomas McHugh of this city, a wholesale liquor dealer. Word of this action soon reached the crowd and a great cher went up, after which the people quickly dispersed. When the inquest began the remains of White could not be found and after a long f. arch they were found wrapped in paper in a n ice cht st . W hite weighed about 2) pounds, but only five pounds of fiesh and bones were left r.f him after the lynchers had concluded Ou ir work. The jury brought in the following verdict : '"That George White came to his death between the hours of lo p. m. of June 1!-!:;, and -i p. m. of June 23, V. by being burned in a Held adjoining the road lead ing from Prices Corner to the Ferris .'n duftrial school, by a party or parties tin known to this jury." The coroner's inquest having failed to reveal th1 identity of ttr1 leaders, it is thoutrht the authorities will be unable to proceed. It was declared that a state de tectie had the nanu s of some of the lead ers, but this is evidently not true, because two davs have elapsed since the burning took place and r.o further arrests have been made.

Alargaret Little. Thousands of women suffer from sys temic catarrh. This is sure to pro duce such sympotms as cold feet and hands, sick headache, palpitation of the heart and heavy feelings in the stomach. Then begins a series of experiments with medicine. They take medicine for sick headache. They take medicine for nervous prostration, for palpitation of the heart, for dyspepsia. None of these medicines do any good because they do not reach the cause of the complaint. i Peruna at once mitigates all these ' symptoms by removing the cause. j Systemic catarrh is the trouble. Sys- ! temic catarrh pervades the whole sys- j tem, deranges every organ, weakens ; every function. No permanent cure can be expected until the systemic catarrh is removed. This is exactly what Peruna will do. A Wonderful Cure by Pe-ru-na Was Given Up to Die. Eight Doctors Failed. Pe-ru-na Saved Her Life. Miss Alma Cox. Assistant Postmis tress of drum, S. C writes.

He advised Peruna ana Manalin, and after taking the medicin-a two weeks I felt greatly relieved. My head did not pain me any scarcely, and my stomach was relit-ved of its heavy feeling.
