ELLIOTT WILL VISIT I
HEAD OF THE NORTHERN PA- I
CIFIC TO MAKE OVERLAND
TRIP IN AN AUTO.
According to an item appearing in
the Spokesman-Review of March 18,
President Howard Elliott of the North
ern Pacific railway, who passed
through Missoula on Tuesday morn
ing west-bound, is to make an over
land trip through the agricultural dis
tricts of Washington in an automobile.
Mr. Elliott is accompanied by a num
ber of Northern Pacific officials on
the trip. The newspaper article is
"On a trip of inspection over the
Northern Pacific lines and to look over
the proposed branches in the center
of the state, President Howard Elliott
of the Northern Pacific railroad ar
rived yesterday afternoon from the
east and departed about 10 minutes
later in his private car over the Pa
louse and Lewiston branch.
"On the train on which he came to
Spokane was a big touring car, which
he will use for an overland trip to
the wheat fields of central Washing
ton, which the Northern Pacific will
probably enter with branches this
summer. A line is contemplated up
the Columbia river from Pasco and
another from Adrian to Connell.
"Although a number of higher offi
cials of the Northern Pacific were at
the station to meet Mr. Elliott, he
spent practically the entire time of
his stay talking to President Jay P.
Graves of the Inland Empire system,
conferring with him over a blue print
which Mr. Graves brought to the sta
"'Will you accept the freight rates
named by the commerce commission?'
was asked Mr. Elliott.
"'The commission has spent two
years in the study of the Spokane case
and you'll have to get your informa
tion from their decision,' was his re
ply. 'If you can understand the situ
ation I'4 like to have you come to St.
Paul and tell me.'
"In the party which left with Mr.
Elliott on the Lewiston train yester
day afternoon were C. M. Levey, third
vice president: H. C. Nutt, general
manager of the lines west of Trout
Creek, Mont.; A. D. Charlton, assistant
general passenger agent, and Henry
Blakeley, general western freight
A bulletin has been issued advis
ing that new style semaphores have
been installed at St. Regis, Iron Moun
tain, Rivulet, Lothrop, Huson and
Frenchtown. The operation of these
signals is changed somewhat over the
old ones. A vertical position of the
arms denotes clear track whereas with
the old style a diagonal downward, po
sition is for clear. Caution and stop
signals are not changed.
Conductor John Dinnen, who for the
past two months has been engaged on
the general examination board of the
Northern Pacific, has completed his
work with the board and reported to
Sthe Rocky Mountain officials for duty.
He will relieve Frank Miller on trains
3 and 4. Miller will probably be as
signed to trains 5 and 6.

NORTHERN PACIFIC TO BUILD
THROUGH LOWER YELLOW
Special to The Daily Mites ulian.
Glendi\e. March 19.- Not for years
have the business men of this coan.
munity received hetter or inori e n
couraging news than that contained in
a letter from Thoomtas Cooper, land
commissioner if the Northern Pacific.
to local representatives of the road.
stating that he has been directed to
proceed immediately to p'rchase the
rigjtt-of-way from Sidney to Glendive
for the new Northern Pacitfic line from
Mandan to this city.
Survey Made Long Ago.
While it has been understood for
two years that this line would be con
structed, and the survey was made
long ago. yet this is the first tangible
local evidence of the commnencement
of actual operations. Many have con
sidered the project as being rather in
definite, but now it is looked upon in
a different light, and local business
men begin to realize what the con
struction of the new line will mean to
The chief design of the Northern
Pacific, in the construction of the
road from Mandan to Glendive is to
secure a water-grade line. It will
follow the Missouri from Mandan to
this stream's confluence with the Yel
lowstone, and will then comec up the
valley of the Lower Yellowstone to
With the present line, heavy freights
from the west are nece-sarily bnroken
in two at this point, in order to haul
them to Dickinson. That necessitates
the use of extra engines and crews,
and these usually "run light" from
Dickinson back to Glendive. It is to
o\vercome this waste and to facilitate
east-bound freight traffic that makes
desirable the construction of the new
Opens Good Country.
At the same time it will open up
a splendid country hitherto devoid of
railroad facilities. It will thus serve
some thickly-settled country in North
Dakota, and on entering this state will
traverse the rich lower Yellowstone
valley, which will this year be watered
from the big government irrigation
project. By the construction of that
line, the lower valley will be more close
ly linked to Glendive, and this city Is
bound to profit in every way. The
building of the contemplated road will
also largely increase the population of
.Glendive. Many believe it is the in
tention of the Northern Pacific to
shortly push out westward, directly
across the state from this city, thus
decreasing their trans-montana mile
age by 200 miles.
A Religious Author's Statement.
Rev. Joseph H. Fesperman, Salis
bury, N. C., who is the author of sev
eral books, writes: "For several
years I was afflicted with kidney trou
ble and last winter I was suddenly
stricken with a severe pain in my kid
neys and was confined to bed eight
days unable to get up without assis
tance. My urine contained a thick
white sediment and I passed same fre
quently day and night. I commenced
taking Foley's Kidney Remedy, and
the pain gradually abated and finally
ceased and my urine became normal.
I cheerfully recommend Foley's Kidney
Remedy." Geo. Freisheimer, Garden
City Drug Co.

FOR WHIPPING GIRL
Wilkesbarre, Pa., March 19.-Pro
fessor Clayton Kellar, principal of the
high school at Laceyville, near here,
was arrested today charged with
thrashing Miss Ruth Russell, a 19
year-old girl pupil. The charge is

alleged that Miss Russell, in a spirit
of playfulness,' poured some water on
