Harriman Merger Inrestigation Promises Results. TO REDUCE SCHEDULES If Earnings Are in Excess of 10 Per Cent on Cost of Itoad The GoTernment May Step in and Fix Lower Hates. Washington, Xov. 14. Under pro vision in the charter granted by con gress to the Union Pacific company in 1S63. it is found the government re ceived the most sweepingauthority over rates and charges which the system may make. The provision has been investigated by legal authority since the interstate commerce commission was given the task of investigating- the Harriman system and the conclusion is that it is still enforceable, never ha Mig been repealed or otherwise nulli fied in the various reorganizations of the Union Pacific properties. The law yers who have been working on the matter are confident that this proposi tion is the weapon needed by the gov ernment in the event of a fight with the great combination of roads. The provision follows: "Whenever it appears that the net earnings of the entire road and tele graph, Including the amount allowed for services rendered the United States after deducting nil expenditures, in cluding repairs and the furnishing, running and managing of said road, shall exceed 10 per cent per annum upon its cost, exclusive of the 5 per centum to be paid the United States, congress may reduce the rates of fare thereon if unreasonable in amount and may fix and establish the same by law." Vnlon Pacific's Karnins. It is explained by the lawyer who first turned up this provision and pre sented it as the basis of action by the commission, that the Union Pacific undoubtedly is earning- far in excess of 10 per cent a year "upon its cost," which has nothing to do . with its present capitalization. He urges that with its capitalization watered as some other roads in the country are, its common .stock is now upon 10 per cent basis anil its surplus is very large. Therefore, he declares, the' power of congress to prescribe rates has become operative and needs only a valuation of its earnings to demonstrate that it i. iND SlfSTEM,mSOHIBRi;B Catarrh is not merely an inflammation of the tissues of the head and' throat, as the symptoms cf ringing- noises la the ears, mucous dropping back into the throat, continual hawking and spitting, etc., would seem to indi cate ; it is a blood disease ia which the entire circulation and the greater part of the system are involved. Catarrh is due to the presence of an excess of uric acid ia the blood. The Liver, Kidneys and Bowels frequently be come torpid and dull ia their action and instead of carrying- off the refuse nd waste of the body, leave it to sour and form uric acid in the S3rstem.' tThis is taken up by the blood and through its circulation distributed to all parts of the system. These impurities ia the blood irritate and inflame the different membranes and tissues of the body, and the contracting of a cold will start the secretions and other disgusting and disagreeable symptoms of Catarrh. As the blood goes to all parts of the body the ca-j tarrhal poison affects all part3 of the system. The head has a tight, full feeling, nose continually stopped up, pains above the eyes, slight fevers comes and goes, the stomach is upset and the entire system disordered and S T . . . ., . . affected by this disease.

The interstate commerce commis sion's inquiry into the "Harriman group" originated in part from numer ous complaints that Tailroad rates from the Missouri, river n the coast are excessive and in part with the dis covery of the land frauds alony the Union Pacific. Control of One Affects AH. It is pointed out that if the govern ment can compel a reduction in rates along the Union Pacific, the other transcontinental lines must meet it and thus the whole western section would benefit. It was this idea that originally instigated the movement for investigation. The commission has not yet formulated a plan for carrying- on the work, and it is not at all certain when it will have time to do it. But there is a powerful pressure from higher tip to have the work done. The fact that Union Pacific is a Standard Oi! interest and that the president is just now preparing a fight on Standard Oil all along the line, is supposed to be largely responsible for the interest in Union Pacific affairs.

St. Marys Men Think Their Cbances Are rirst Kate. Tiie Washburn team last night lined up for a little kicking practice. The men an stiil eomewhat stiff from the effect3 of last Saturday's game and Coach Weede did not deem it advisable to give he men any hard work. All the ira 'tice consisted in booting- the ball a fow times. Not even signal practice was . indulged" in. The team was verted up to a, very high degree latt Stttrday and it is not thought to Tom Burns. Right Halfback, eight 151. be a very good plan to start the men in as hard training at the beginning of the week as was necessary last week. However, Coach Weede expects to have his men in fine shape for the game Saturday and will have them so that they will play the game with speed and will give St. Mary's the hardest game they have had this year. Coach Quigley is giving his men the regular hard daily practice. He ex pects to have the fastest team work which has been seen in Topeka this year. The game Monday with the Kansas City Vets was a good practice game for his bunch and will do much in getting the Catholics in the best possible condition for the game against Washburn. Captain George Hughes, Weight 159. Captain Hughes and Walsh, two of the best men on the Kt. Alary s team. saw the Kansas game last Saturday and after the game stated that they felt that they had a good chance against Washburn and said that it would not surprise them in the least to win. The St. Mary's team has played great ball this season. They have played a large number of games and have met w ith but one defeat. Kansas university in the early part of the sea son won from them by a score of 18 to 0. St. Mary's was not nearly as strong at that time as they are now and another game between the two might be attended by different re sults. Thev defeated Fairmount by a score of 6 to 0. On this account Wash burn is very anxious to defeat the Catholics and thus in a measure re trieve for the reverses which they re ceived at the hands of Fairmount. The St. Mary's second team which is near ly as fast as the first team holds the season's record for the highest score They won from the team from St. John's Military school by a score of 77 to 6. Other scores made by the Cath olics have been very high. As yet not much can be learned in regard to the strength of Washburn when thev line up against Quigley's men next Saturady. The present indi cations seem to favor a good strong team for the game Saturday. It would not be surprising, however, to see sev eral of the best men unable to play and consequently Washburn might be caught in a crippled condition such as they were when Fairmount played here. If a few of the men are out St. Mary's ought to be able to give Wash barn the hardest rub of the season. Thev may do something anyhow. With mm f ..'mi. IS ' ;i M. CLEMEHCEATJ, NEW M.

New York, Xov. 14. Following the Knsj lish custom that h.is been in vogue abroad for many years, Uie woman lawn Tennis players of th;s country will be ranked this year for t!;e lirst time. The first intimation that ranking of women wsis at ail thought of was in a letter which Mrs. B;irger-Va llach re ceived from A. L. Hofikins of Philadelphia, the chairman of ' t he committee. The plan that was outlined was to give the places and allot the handicaps according to the performances in the three most Important tournaments of the season the national championship at Philadelphia, tile Longwood open tournament of Bos-ton and the tristate championship at Cincin nati. In outlining her selections Mrs. Barger Wallach said that Miss May Sutton, ex national champion of the United States and England, stood first on her list he cause of the marvelous pronr-iency which the young California girl had demon strated. Miss Helen iiomans of the West Side Lawn Tennis club and winner of the national championship honors this season, is placed second. The third place will go to Miss Sutton, while the fourth place would fail to either Miss Evelyn Sears of Boston or herself, ac-oordine to the record of several scores. This would fill the honor list of the , first five, while close with' them would come Miss Neeley of ' Tiicago, Miss Coffin of Staten Island ant! others . ' - - NEBRASKA STILL HOPEFUL. Thinks CornIuiskCi-9 Can Give Maroons a Close Game. Lincoln. Tveb., Nov. 14. Although the Cornhuwkers took things easy in their game Saturday with Oreighton, being satisfied with a low score, ail loafing will be cut out of Coach Koster's curriculum tomorrow when the practice begins for the coming games with Kansas ana t in cago. Potter will make the work as light as he dares in getting ready for Kansas, but the JayhaWkers have a heavy, formid able eleven, in spite of recent reverses, and the Nebraska coach expects to begin at once to point his pupils for their clashes with the Jayhawkers and also the Maroons. In view of Chicago's defeat by the Gophers, the Xebraska coach thinks the Cornhuskers will surely play the Maroons a close game, and they will be sorely dis appointed if their confidence proves mis placed. Meanwhile secret practice is to be the daily program for the next two weeks. A SIX DAY CYCLE RACE, World's Greatest Riders to Compete in Gothi'.ni in December. New York, Xov. 14.

San Francisro, ral., Xov. 14. Billy Rhodes of Kansas. who .-fchieved a reputa tion when he fought a Ucuty-rourul draw wit h Joe Walcott, is the most recently suggested opponent for Joe Thomas fir the month ot .November. It was discov ered that Jack iTwirw Sullivan would have trouble making the weight Thomas demanded, and Rhodes is one of the few men who might be available. Lispatches were sent to him yesterday by Morris Ievy, but up to a late hour last night no reply had been received. If Rhodes accepts he will have to do so in a hurry, ?s it would take him several days to make the trii to California and he would need some time to get into con dition. Should Rhodes decline the hurry-up call on the part of the promoters there is a good chance that November will be a hghtless month. McGOVERX-COIlBETT BO IT.
