' Mr. Eddy Says There Is No Hope
for the Minnesota Project.
Co«t U Too Great, He Think*—Seven
teen National Park Bills
Are Pending.
Special to The Journal*
Washington, Feb. 22.—"There are sev
enteen bills now pending in congress tor
the establishment of national parks,"
said Representative Eddy to-day. "The
lands to be set aside for this purpose are
located in all sections of the United
States and the establishment of all the
parks would cost the government many
millions of dollars. The expenses of the
government are now very heavy—the
legitimate expenses for running the gov
ernmental machinery, 1 mean —and 1 do
not see how we can afford to spend the
money necessary to set aside the lands for
these parks.
"Personally, I am in favor of creating
parks where there are natural curiosities
to be preserved. As examples of these I
can cite the big tree country of California,
the Palisades of the Hudson, and, per
haps, some others. Proposals to create
parks for the simple purpose of preserv
ing bodies of merchantable timber I am
not in favor of, particularly when it will
cost as much as the proposed park in
Minnesota. If it were simply a question
of withdrawing public land, which we
would not have to purchase, I would fa
vor it and urge its withdrawal from set
tlement and entry.
"I do not think there is the remotest
chance for the establishment of the Min
nesota national park."
"I shall return to South Dakota and
attend to some of my business affairs,"
said Senator Pettigrew. "There are many
things in which 1 am interested, -which
have been neglected since I have been in
the senate, and I will return and rehabili
tate them. There is no truth whatever
in the story that I am going to connect
myself with the Great Northern Railroad
company. I intend to devote myself en
tirely to my personal affaire and to them
only for a while at least"
An amendment to the postal bill appro
priates $20,000 for experiments in what
is known as "Machen's country post
office," a scheme designed to fill In the
gap between the village postomce and
rural delivery. The scheme is to erect
in neighborhoods of a dozen or more
families a structure containing twenty
four boxes. Each householder would have
a key to one box opening at the front,
and a postal employe would have a key
opening the entire back of the beehive.
Nobody would need be further than a half
or a quarter of a mile from a mail distrib
uting point.
"Rural mail-carriers will yet elect the
'president of the United States," said a
New England congressman this morning.
His belief is that with a great army of
postal servants traveling through the
• rural districts and visiting every home
the party in power would have a host of
•willing workers whose effect would be
very large. ,

City collided last night with passenger
train No. 330, running from Camden to
Trenton in the Amboy division of the
Pennsylvania railroad at Rusling's siding
near Bordentown, and about eight miles
south of Trenton.
Eleven were killed and forty-three in-

slightly. The only dead yet identified are
Engineer Earle of the "Xellie Bly" ex

bodies is that of William McKinney also
of Trenton.

train, who had both legs taken off is
weaker this morning and his recovery is
doubtful. Two others of the injured, both
Italians, are in a serious condition but all
of the others are sure to recover
The two trains collided at full speed
and both engines were demolished The
forward car of each train was demolished
and the wreckage took fire. The second
car of the "Nellie Bly" turned over on

I left off coffee that day at lunch and
had a cap of Postum. It was made goo'fl

regular coffee. it pleased the eye smell

discovered a decided improvement in my

coffee for breakfast and used Postum in

Concert of the Powers in Getting
Concessions From China.
Diploma tii- Victory In Preventing
Future Trouble la
Mmw York Sim Somolml Smrvlom
Washington, Feb. 22. —While the peace
negotiations have been proceeding in
Peking, the United States government has
been conducting diplomatic exchanges
with the powers affecting a side issue of
the Chinese trouble. The state depart
ment recently undertook to secure an
agreement or at least an exchange of
views in regard to the granting of conces
sions b.v China to foreign governments.
It was made known to the powers that
the United States was opposed *to the
policy oX nations acquiring individual
concessions without the consent of all
the other nations concerned. The ground
on which this attitude was based was that
as all the powers had acred concurrently
in the settlement of the general Chinese
question, they should apply that principle
to efforts to obtain extra territorial and
dther privileges.
Answers have been received from near
ly all the powers and they are favorable
in that no power dissents from the prin
ciple enunciated. Some of the govern
ments show themselves to be In thorough
accord with the position of the United
Japan May Fight.
Berlin, FeD. 22.—Tha Vossische Zeitung
publishes a dispatch from its correspondent
who has been at Niu Cliiaou:
, '"Japan is very bitter over the annexation
of Manchuria. She still hopes for Ger
many's and England's assistance, but if she
does not obtain this she intends to proceed
independently in Niu Shwang and along the
coast. The belief is general that in the
spring there will be new uprisings and a
Russo-Japanese war is considered likely."
Looting' In Korea.
Victoria. B. C. Feb. 22.—Advices from the
orient 6ay that Russian troops are commit
ting shocking depredations along the north
frontier of Korea. They often cross the Lu
men river and loot villages, carrying off
valuables, as well as grain and cattle, giving
as an excuse that they are pursuing Boxers.
The Korean government, has lodged a vigor
ous protest with the Russian minister. Chi
nese fugitives are marauding along the
Korean border. They had been driven out of
Manchuria by the Russians.
Transfer the Railway.
Peking, Feb. 22.—The transfer of the Shan
hai-Kwan railway to the British was com

Feb. 28.
The Russians will probably hand over the

shall guard the line?
Former Duluth Mail Is Said to Be
Wanted in Boston Thin
New York. Feb. 22.—Alonzo' J. White
man, alias A. D. Wilson, formerly of Du
luth, is under arrest here on a charge of
grand larceny. He is accused of passing
worthless checks in Boston.
With three others he was arrested in
this city in November, 1899, charged with
swindling banks to the extent of $100,000.
He was taken to Chicago for trial and sent
to the house of correction, but he was re
leased last fall.
Whiteman was born in Danville, N. V.,
and graduated from Hamilton college and
the Columbian law school. He went to
Duluth and opened a bank in 1883, and he
is said to have made a fortune estimated
at $1,000,000. He entered politics in 1886.
and was elected state senator. He ran for
congress in 1890 on the republican ticket
but was defeated.
His fortune was wiped away by disas
trous financial ventures. The police say
that he has been arrested many times for
forgery and was imprisoned for a year
in a San Francisco jail.
Completed Constitution Has Been
Delivered to Governor
General Wood.
New York, Feb. 22.—A special to the

States for acceptance."
Senor Capote, president of the conven

The special committee on relations has

Vaudeville Actors Object to a De

Hmw York Sun Spmclal Smi-vlca
New York, Feb. 22.—The white rats of
America, the protective association of
vaudeville actors, has started a general
strike in every theater in the east con
trolled by the syndicate known as the As
sociation of Vaudeville Managers Per
formances in half a dozen cities, includ
ing New York, were badly crippled, but
enough actors and actresses out of work
were found to fill in the time.
The grievance is the demand of the
managers' combination that the perform
ers flive up 5 per cent of their salaries as
a booking fee. It led to the strike Feb
i, -when the White Rats' demand that the
fee be discontinued was acceded to by the
managers. The White Rats say the mana
gers did not keep their word.

What more striking instance could there

The hero whose memory we honor to-drty,
was uot a man oi genius or of the best intel

him that Americans could ever seek to con

banner the deolaratio-n of independence. He
could not have dreamed that the extension
of trade and t:ie enriching of trusts should
ever be deemed by Americans a justification

connection with this treaty that the dis

As to cutting down supplies, it is said
that the interior department officials claim
that the treety provides for it and the
department is only following that treaty..
The Black Hills claim is one that has been
before the department for some time, but
the Indians have not been afforded any
relief, because there is no law for it.
Secretary Hitchcock has notified Rep

of unappropriated lands in the Great
Sioux reservation on Feb. 10, 1900, has

will shortly be able to furnish information
showing the exact amount due the Indi

all lands unappropriated on the date
named shall be paid for at GO cents an
acre, except school lands in sections 1€
and 36, for which $1.25 an acre is to be
paid. The amount due the Indians is be

H. V.Jones Comments on the Abund
ance of Ready Capital. .
The West should Wake Ip—Western
Cities Are Not So Alert
as Formerly.
"The money supply of the country is at
the highest point ever known and it is
a good deal of a problem for bankers to
dispose of the loanable surplus," said H.
V. Jones to-day, just home from a trip
through the east.
•When you find institutions carrying
$70,000,000 of deposits, with nearly one
half of the supply on hand, you can begin
to understand why Interest rales are low
and why bank surpluses exist at this time.
The people h;ive money; there is no get
ting around that fact. Beginning back on
the farm, the farmer has money and the
country banks have money. They are seek
ing ;o get a small interest rate from the
city banks, w£o in turn ere declining to
pay interest on such accounts because they
find It difficult to secure au outlet for sur
plus funds. As an instance of the great
accumulation of money, one bank in Kan
sas City has over $30,000,000 of deposits,
which include accounts from 1,000 country
banks and 8,100 women depositors. The
bank is not a savings institution, either.
In Chicago the banks have large surplus
accounts. lowa is using comparatively lit

A Xew Pace for Consolidation.
"The completion of the great steel com
bination has set a new pace for consolida
tion. The great capital of above $800,000,
--000 is equaled only by the value of the
Standard Oil securities. There is a slight
tremor running through Wall street be
cause of it all, and yet no one anticipates
for a moment any unfavorable financial
result from the consolidation. The new
company proposes to make a great saving
in the cost of operation and many men
will lose positions. The same will be true
in the railroad consolidations. There does
not appear to be any remedy for this turn
in the operation of corporations; the idea
of saving mon*y by combination that will
cut off injurious competition is now well
fixed In the public mind and it is the opin
ion that it is a principle that has come to
Northwestern Railroad Combina
"What of northwest railroad combina
tions or traffic arrangements? New York
has no definite idea of what is going on.
Not much confidence is placed in newspa
per reports from day to day, because the
feeling is that mere rumors are picked up
and worked into stories that may or may
not have foundation. President Cable, of
the Rock Island, met Thomas Liowry, the
president of the Soo, in the Holland House
the other morning and Mr. Cable inquired:
'Anything sold over night, Tom?' 'Nothing
1 believe/ said Mr. Lowry, 'except I under
stand there is a rumor that the Soo is
about to buy the Rock Island. Had you
heard of it?" It is in this bantering way
that New York is now receiving reports of
combinations. And on the other hand
enough has been accomplished in that di
rection to give a serious side to it all.
The steel combination with its enormous
capital makes it possible now to believe
anything; hence New York is ready for
almost any announcement. Considerable
surplus money will find its way into these
large combinations so that it is possible
that a little better demand for money may
develop later in the spring.
West Should Arouse Itself.
"The west needs to arouse itself all
along the line. We have fallen into
ways of indolence out here, and there Is
less inquiry about the west in the east
than was formerly the case. Just now we
are in a period of combinations and when
these are disposed of, the railroads will
be just as anxious under the combinations
to build up their respective territories as
they were ten years ago. But just the
same the western cities are less alert than
they should be. We are losing opoprtuni
ties because we are not sufficiently aggres
sive. I sat in a railroad station in a lit
tle New York town and two men beside me
were discussing shoes. One of them said
he had worn a Minneapolis shoe for sev
eral years, it just suited him, but a few
months ago he bought another shoe and
it was suiting him pretty well. I made
no inquiry as to how he came to buy a
Minneapolis shoe, but it occurred to me
that with railroads running in all direc
tions there are neglected opportunities
slipping away from western manufacturers
and western jobbers because we reason
that we cannot do things or that our field
is in other directions. A railroad be
lieves its field is in every corner of the
commercial world. The west should take
on a little more of the old-time enthusi
asm, or business may slip by us to the
coast, or it may'center short of us."

She Took Our Vinol with
Good Results.
We don't want any one in this city
to drag themselves through life in pain i
and misery for the want of enough I
strength to feel well and happy.
If you feel listless, without ambition
and run down, it is a bad sign.
You are running grave chances. You
ere in a condition to be attacked by
most any disease.
This feeling of debility is a symptom
that your sj'stem is generally demoral
ized. You should take a tonic.
You should take Vinol, which we
know and will guarantee will restore
your strength.
Following is one case where it did
this. Mrs. T. H. Boyle, of 56 Chestnut
St., West Newton, Mass., says:
"Last spring I used one bottle of j
Vinol. At that time I was all run
down and sick. I find that it did me
lots of good, and by its use my strength
came back to me. M
Vinol is a delicious preparation, con- |
tain ing th« active curative principles !
that are found in cod-liver oil, dis- I
solved in a delicate table wine.
Vinol acts directly on the stomach,
aiding digestion and at the same time |
creating a healthy appetite. It gives i
strength and vigor to every organ of
the body.
We endorse Vinol, and guaran

pery as Greenland's icy mountains, a mar
ble-topped center table adorned with a
batch of sad and soggy wax flowers in a
glass case, and a lot of horned and
freckled sea shells on the whatnot. If he
possessed all these he was considered to
be just as rich as a man could possibly
get to be, and looked up to accordin'ly.
"But, nowadays—huh—if a man can't
afford to wear side whiskers and a promi
nent abdomen, and buy himself a seat in
the senate, and be investigated for be
longin' to a trust, and be spoken of as a
magnate or some kind of a baron, and
have a son who ought to be on the rock
pile half of the time and shot by the re
form committee the rest of the time, and
a daughter who is newspaperially accused
of havin' designs on the peace and pov
erty of a foreign nobleman, and maintain
a horseless carriage, he ain't even con
sidered rich enough to be hated. In this
day and age a man's got to be an auto
mobillionaire.or he ain't in it."

H?rr Zschor;ier, of Vicuna, has been ex
perimenting with peat for twelve years, and
has shown very conclusively that it has
nuiiiy astonishing qualities. In Ireland, in
particular, this intelligence should be wel
comed. A building has been exhibited in
which everything, from the carpets on the
floor to the curtains on the windows and the
paper on the walls, was made from peat. The
fibers of the remains of the reeds and
grasses of which peat is composed have, of
course, their original physical and chemical
characters changed, but the fibrous structure
remains intact, and the fibers themselves aru
very durable, elastic and non-conductors of
heat. Fabrics woven from them are found
to have the toughness of linen with the
warmth of wool. There is no textile fabric
that cannot be woven from these fibers.
Blankets and other coverings used for horses
and cattle have been found in use to excel
in warmth and cleanliness. Paper of several
qualities has been made, and the uses to
which peat fiber has already been applied in
dicates possibilities that may render the peat
bogs of Ireland a valuable addition to the
resources of that country.
