Minnesota raihoads charge higher rates for the transportation of coal and lumber because in the first place, they do not hav e to contend with water routes They also charge higher lates because labor and material cost more in Minnesota, and operating expenses are higher These wete leasons advanced jesteiday at the hearing befoie the railroad and warehouse commission which was at tended bj lepresentatives of nearly all the Minnesota roads The stiong point made b the railroad representatives was one of public interest It was asserted that coal rates were equalized so that the rate from lake ports on Pennsylvania coal was the same as rates from the Illinois mines This as explained by J H Hiland of the Milwaukee permitted the low grade Illinois coal to compete in this market and gave consumers in Minnesota a greater field for supply To reduce the rate from Duluth would shut Illinois coal out of the market reduce competition and benefit the dealers lather than the public Mr Hiland said that all rates were in consistent and had to be made with a number of things in mind not only short haul distances but the volume of traffic, industrial and commercial conditions For instance low rates were made on logs and lumber from the lakes Inland, to bring the raw material to mills where it was manu factured into a finished product which the road got to haul again Without the low rate on the raw material the Milwau kee would not get to haul the product High rates on lumber in Minnesota he said affected only the farmers and oth- The lightest, coolest, cleanest and best underclothing made.

Port Arthur, Ont , June 19 Messrs Marks & Wiley, of Port Arthur are ap plying foi government bonus in aid of a proposed lailwav, the Nepigon & Iron Range wVch thev claim they are desir ous of building if they can get sufficient aid Thev have taken large tracts of land near Black Sturgeon lake northwest of Lake Superior, on which are said to be deposits of iron of much value Lands in that region have been taken up by a number of interests chiefly Canadian, and it is absolutely necessary, if they are to be developed, that railway connection shall be made Not sufficient expolration has yet been carried out to determine whether there is great avlue or not, tho the owners are enthusiastic There is another railway project for the north shore of Lake Su perior also seeking aid from the Canadian ogevrnment This is the NeplJioii.Railway companv, which proposes to build from Lake Superior to the ore fields east of Nepigon Lake This is in the hands of James Conmee a well known politician and otheis So far as explorations east of Nepigon have been made public, they have shown a largo district earning ample indications of iron, much ferruginous slates and rich jasper, but little merchant able ore More extended and throo ex plorations may, of course change all this, but several of the leading companies in the field have pulled off for the present, at least, and are not now Interested ac tively in the district The continental height of land Inter venes ebtween the Black Sturgeon and Nepigon sections On the latter the best talent both American and Canadian has been at work in the past two or thr?e years In the Black Sturgeon region lit tle work has ever been done Indications are claimed to be most flattering HOSTILITY IS PAST Pennsylvania and Gould Interests Said to Have Made Up. Philadelphia, June 1 9 The long and bitter fight between the Pennsylvania railroad and the Gould interests has come to an end. Within a week an official announcement is expected that the trains of Gould's Wabash road will be run over one of the lines controlled by the Pennsyl vania either all the way to New York or at least to tidewater Prominent bind ing Interests who speak with authority state that no settlement of the differences between the Pennsylvania road and the Gould interests is yet in sight It is un derstood that negotiations looking to a reconciliation are under way, but these negotiations are of an informal character CANNON FALLS COMPLAINT State R. R. Commission Asked to Appear Before I. C. C . If the state railroad commission ac quiesce in the request of X, A Rosing, as president of the Minnesota League of Municipalities, it will be an innovation in the rate adjustment proceedings. John Wlckey's complaint aa a Cannon Falls elevator owner against the Great West ern and the Milwaukee roads that the two roads violate the interstate commerce law by charging 16 cent3 a hundred on small grain from Cannon Falls to Chicago, or Milwaukee, when the rate between Min neapolis and Chicago, forty miles farther, is 7% cents, has been filed with the Inter state commission A copy has now been filed with the state commission asking that it appear officially and thua give ingweight to the proceedings, by Inter vening, the state would stand for Its citi zens in such an action The rate In force makes It cheaper to ship to Minne apolis at 7 cents and the nreship at 7% This causes delay and expense and gives Minneapolis the advantage, says the plaintiff Interstate Commerce Law. Milwaukee June in B p. Bacon of Milwau kee chairman of the executive committee of the interstate commerce law convention, who has returned from the east, discussed with President Roosevelt the subject of additional amendments to the Interstate commerce law, ivhlch will give the commission power to enforce Its rulings and prevent discrimination Mr. Bacon said the president expressed himself in favor of the amendments, and added "Interstate commerce legislation will be an im portant feature of the work of the next con gress and the various commercial bodies of the country are much interested In seeing a strong additional amendment which will clothe the com mission with power to enforce Us rulings.

The serpent sinks its fangs into the flesh and almost instantly the poison passes through the entire body. Contagious Blood Poison, beginning with a little ulcer, soon contaminates every drop of blood and spreads throughout the whole system. Painful swellings appear in the. groins, a red rash and copper dblored splotches break out on the body, the mouth and throat become ulcerated, and the hair and eye brows fall out but these symptoms are mild compared to the wretchedness and suffering that come in the latter stages of the disease when it attacks the bones and more vital parts of the body. It is then that Contagious Blood Poison is seen in all its hideous- ness. The deep eating abscesses and sickening ulcers and tumors show the whole system is corrupted and poisoned, and unless relief comes soon this serpent disease tightens its coils and crushes out the life. The onjy antidote for the awful virus is S. S. 3. It is nature's retnody, com posed entirely of vegetable ingredients. S. S. S. destroys every vestige of the poison, purifies the blood and removes all danger of transmitting the awful taint to others. Nothing else will do this. Strong mineral remedies, like mercury and potash, dry up the sores and drive in the disease, but do not cure permanently.
