TO HARE ARGUMENTS.
Interstate Commerce Commission
Wants Restraining Order Dissolved.
Chicago, April 20. Arguments in the
Missouri rate case, involving the re
duction of through freight rates from
the Atlantic seaboard to the Missouri
river, by the interstate commerce com
mission, are scheduled today before
Judges Grosscup, Baker and Kohlsaat
of the circuit court of appeals. The
case was postponed from yesterday on
account of the absence of Judge Baker.
The ca&e comes before the court on a
motion by the interstate commerce
commission to dissolve the temporary
injunction issued last fall, restraining
the commission from reducing the
rates. The railroads have introduced
testimony of shippers to show discrimi
nation against interior points like
Cleveland, Chicago and St. Louis as
ground.- for a permanent injunction.
In a brief filed by District Attorney
Sims and Luther M. Walter, attorney
for the commission, it is contended
that the only basis for a claim of dis
crimination in favor of Kansas City,
Omaha, etc., is that the rates to those
cities were the only ones upon which
the commission was asked to pass.
The brief declares that an ordr de
claring the rates established in this
case illegal would strike at the power
of the commission.

English Sportsman to Challenge Amer

Chicago, April 20. The Tribune to
day prints the following special cable
"Sir Thomas Upton, who is here
with his yacht Erin, asks that formal
announcement be made that he will
try again for the American cup and
will forward his challenge in August
next for a series of races under uni
versal rules with a ninety foot boat.
"I think it would be the best plan,
he said, "for a representative to carry
notice or the challenge personally to
the New York Yacht club and I will
await the answer at my hotel. The
challenge will, of course, be intended
to cover a series of races under Amer
ican rules. I do not ask for English
rules, but there is no sense in cup
rules made half a century ago.
"Let it be understood- I have.no
complaint to mak of oast treatment.
The best boat has always won. The
reason ror my persistence is that 1

I lose again. I do not think the New

next fall. I would build two yachts

house. The committee of experts,

in the walls could be replaced with
new masonry without interfering
with other parts . of the building.
Among the other' repairs suggested
were new floors and wall paper. The
board was considering the advisability
of tearing down the building and re
placing it with a new one, but in view
of the report will probably adopt the

IF IT DISAPPEARS, IT'S ECZEMA
How to Tell Whether: a Skin Affection
Is an Inherited Blood Disease or Not.
Sometimes it is hard to determine
whether a skin affection is a sign of
a blood disorder or simply a form of
eczema. Even physicians are often
puzzled in their diagnosis. The best
way for any one afflicted is to go to
Fred A. Snow's or any good druggist
who handles pure drugs and obtain 50
cents worth of poslam. Apply this,
and if the itching stops at once and
the trouble is cured in a few days it
may be set down as having been ec
zema, as this is the way poslam acts
in the worst cases of eczema, and in
curing acne, herpes, blotches, tetter,
piles, salt rheum, rash, barber's and
other forms of itch, scaly scalp, and
all surface skin affections.
Any one who will . write to the
Emergency Laboratories, No. 32 West
Twentyflfth street. New York, can se
cure, by mail free of charge, a supply
sufficient to cure a small eczema sur

and remove pimples in twenty-four
