| service from Chicago to north Pacific

sity of Changing cars in St. Paul and Min

connecting.with Pactfle coast trains, will
also be added soon. The matter was de
cided upon by President Hill of the Great

The Burlington has no late Chicago train,

AN ARTISTIC FOLDER
Manager Shaw Does Something Strikingly
Fine for Canadian Northern.
A new folder issued by the Canadian
Northern is the finest bit of folder work is
sued from western Canada. It was edited
by Traffic Manager George H. Shaw. The
cardboard covers are printed in six differ
ent colors on a slate background. The
trademark of the road is wreathed in
clusters of the Canadian maple leaf. The
central figure on the front plate shows one
of the lean grayhounds which connect with
the Superior limited train at Port Arthur.
The whole work was executed and finished
in Winnipeg. The double page map of
the Canadian Northern system and con
nections is made from an entirely new
plate and shows the most Important pro
jected lines of the road and also the pro
gress made on the extension beyond Er
The reading matter is of a most enter
taining and refreshing style, and the
whole, with the illustrations, might be
termed the finest prospectus on the Cana
dian west, from an artistic viewpoint. The
actual railway information is given with
an unconventionality that is cleverly at
tained, despite the prosaic facts of time
arrivals and departures, etc., with which
one must contend. The exploitation of
the circular tourist trips is especially well

curves and the light grades which make
fast time and the haul of heavy loads pos
sible. Among the new towns are Buck

county, Fernald and Shipley in Story
county, and Enterprise and Elkhart in

Senator Hill Says Financial Trouble
Surely Will Follow Such a
Olcott Beach, N. T.f Aug. 20.At the
annual picnic of the Niagara County Pio
neers' association yesterday 20,000 per
sons gave a reception to David B. Hill.
Senator Hill said:
"Mob violence is not rendered less objec
tionable, even If it is true, as frequently
asserted, that unless it shall interpose its
strong arm the guilty may escape punish
ment thru a lax administration of the
criminal law or, indifference to its enforce
ment on the part of the people themselves.
The very excuse offered Is a reflection on
the community itself where the crime has
been committed, and the remedy lies not
in the people themselves overriding the
law, but in the people upholding and en
forcing the law and in an appeal to their
patriotism, their good sense, their innate
love of justice and respect for order
qualities which are seldom, If ever, in
voked in vain. We cannot permit this
government to become a mobocracy which
acts upon impulse, feels no restraint and
recognizes no appeal from its hasty pre
"Crimes which can only he punished by
such irresponsible tribunals as mobs might
as well not be punished at all, because in
the end the remedy will be found to be
worse than the disease."
Mortgaging the Future.
Mr. Hill discussed "fictitious vs. real
prosperity" as follows:
"There is a chorus of assertion, con
stantly reiterated, that the country at the
present time is enjoying a period of much
prosperity. Tet there are grave reasons
for doubting the entire correctness of the
statement. It is conceded that many pub
lic works are in progress of construction
and many Important enterprises are in
process of development, but the fact must
be borne in mind that most of these
schemes are being floated on borrowed
capital, that the future Is being largely
mortgaged, and that profits to hereafter
accrue and dividends to be hereafter de
clared are already being anticipated, and
there is no adherence to the good, old
fashioned and safe doctrine of paying as
you go. The country has been surfeited
with the Issue of various stocks and bonds
which have been palmed oft upon a con
fiding public under the promise of profits,
never earned and not likely to be earned,
until a financial reaction has set In which
has disturbed public confidence, inaugu
rated a falling market, and, temporarily
at least, even if not for soiree time to
come, prevented safe financial Invest
ments and the end Is not yet. When the
prices of the necessaries of life are unrea
sonably enhanced, so that it practically
costs a man all he earns to live comfort
ably, there is no opportunity afforded for
the accumulation of a fair competence.
Normal conditions are better for the peo
ple as a whole than those . flourishing
times which are soon followed*by periods
of business reverses. As an undue ex
hilaration Is usually followed by depres
sion of spirits, so in affairs of business,
commejrclal stagnation is generally pre
ceded by excessive expansion.

$3,500,000 FO R MINE S
Duluth, Minn., Augr. 20.The Interna
tional Harvester company of Chicago has
purchased the mining interests of the
Deering Harvester company on the Mesa
ba and Baraboo ranges for $3,500,000.
The International Harvester corporation
has determined to follow the example
set by the "tDeeringSi before it entered the
combine of controlling he raw material.
The deal is the* jtafra^st of the- year as af
fecting the controTsof iron properties.
The International Harvester company
was formed last fall? 1t a 'combination of
the harvesting departments of the Mc
Cormick and Deerings companies. The
iron ore division of the Deering was not
included in the combine, the International
Harvester company at that time being
undecided as to whether it wished to pro
duce its own ore. It now appears that
the corporation has decided to do so, and
the deal for the Deering Iron properties
bears this out.
The purchase Includes the Hawkins
mine at Nashwauk and the Agnew mine
at Hibbing on the Mesaba range the La
Rue 1 and 2 in the new Baraboo district
in "Wisconsin, and two small properties at
Crystal Falls. The Hawkins mine Is the
largest on the western Mesaba.

New York Bun Speoial Service.
Chicago, Aug. 20.The story of rescue
from peonage near Hlghmore, S. D., told
by Louise Haby, who recently arrived in
Chicago, is scouted at Highmore. The
girl was born on a farm near Highmore
in 1886. Her mother was frozen to death
in the blizzard of Jan. 12, 1888. A family
named Lemke then adopted the child.
For several years the Lemkes lived near
Highmore, and Louise Haby attended the
Highmore public schools.
Then the family removed to a farm
which Lemke had purchased ten miles
from town. There she attended the coun
try school the same as the other children
of that neighborhood. The Lemke family
consists solely of Lemke and hiB wife,
and they gave the girl as goood a home
as most South Dakota families of moder
ate means enjoy. Since ther,extensive
