U. C. T. or other organizations of

Men's Department, Sunday Journal,

morning of each week.
The traveling men, thru the, crusade
of the U. C. T. for intercnangeabie
mileage at a flat 2-cent rate and an in
terchangeable excess baggage book, ap
pear to have tvon a two-thirds victory.
Two of the three northern railroads,
the Northern Pacific and the Great
Northern, have agreed to issue a 5,000
mire book for $100 -^.without rebate.
They will also issue a 3,000-mile book
for $75 with $15 rebate. The traveling
men asked for an interchangeable ex
cess baggage book with a reduction of
80 per cent and it has been granted,
with a reduction of 20 per cent. These
books are interchangeable on these
two roads.
Regarding the Soo line's concession,
The Journal last night said:
"Interchangeable mileage on the
northern lines has been secured to a
limited extent. W. R. Calloway, gen
eral passenger agent of the Soo, noti
fied the railroad and warehouse com
mission today that the Soo would issue
a 1,000-mile book at a flat rate of 2%
cents a mile, or $25. It will be good
all over the Soo and South Shore roads,
and will also be honored on the lines
of the Great Northern and Northern
Pacific between the twin cities and
Buluth-Superior, including intermediate
stations. It will not be good on other
parts of the Great Northern and North
ern Pacific systems.
This concession is not all that the
traveling men asked for, but is quite
an improvement over the present con
The Soo has already announced a
6,000-mile book at a flat rate of 2 cents,
and a 2,500-mile book at 2}4 cents.
These are good on the South Shore at,
the rate of 2* cents, but not on any
other systems in Minnesota."
New Interchangeable.
The mileage tickets will be honored
on the Minnesota & International rail
wav, the Duluth & Iron Range railroad
and the Duluth, Missabe & Northern
railway. The territory prescribed for
the use of the tickets on the Great
Northern and the Northern Pacific is
as follows: On all lines of the Great
Northern and Willmar & Sioux Falls
railways' east of Mondak, Mont., but
not including the line west of the Mis
souri river from Sioux City, Iowaj to
O'Neill, Neb. On all lines of the North
ern Pacific railway from Beach, Monk,
to Ashland, Wis.
The grand council season of the IT.
C. T. has been inaugurated with meet
ings at Memphis, Tenn., Lincoln, Neb.,
and Seattle., Wash. Other grand coun
cil meetings during the month of May
will be Kansas-Oklahoma at Wichita,
Texas at Dallas and Georgia-Florida at
Jacksonville, all an May 11-12 Illinois
at Freeport, Mississippi-Louisiana at
Vicksburg and Alabama at Mobile, all
on Mav 18-19. New York and New
England, the first at Syracuse and the
other at Burlington, Vt., coming: on 25-
26. Another prominent meeting on
those two days will be the Kentucky
Virginias grand council at Washington,
D. C. The largest number of the grand
council meetings are to be held in June.
The date of the Minnesota-Dakota-Man
itoba meeting at Albert Lea is Friday
and Saturday, June 8 and 9.
The collections that are being taken
up by.the subordinate councils of the
U. C. T. should all reach the grand
counselor now within a short time, and
will come in very handily. Many com
mercial travelers have not only lost
all their personal possessions and are
out of employment, but the prospect for
their outlook is not encouraging. Their
firms have been impoverished in many
instances, and can no longer give^them
employment. They must go elsewhere
or exist somehow until San Francisco
is re-established commercially.

monthly meeting of the Winona coun
cil of united Commercial Travelers held
the past week the council went on
record as being opposed to house bill
No. 4549, which seeks to consolidate

the interest of catalog houses, and
against wholesale concerns, by whom,,
the commercial travelers are employed.'
Secretary George H. Ramer has mailed
copies of the formal protest made by
the council to Senators Knute Nelson
and Moses E. Clapp and Congressman
James A. Tawney.
The Winona council, IT. C. T., has
voted to send Secretary George It.
Ramer to Chicago to attend the meet

be held there on June 2$ and 26.
Efforts are now being made to secure
a large delegation from Winona to the
