device, it is small and occupies,
when attached to the boiler, but little
space. It adds in various ways to home com

at night the bath is always ready and after
meals there is no tiresome waiting for dish

Alleged Pool at LET
La Crosse, Wis., July 26.A stub
born legal battle, backed on one side
by the wealth behind the alleged ice
trust in this city and on the other by
the resources of the state, is expected
to result from a finding by Attorney
General Sturdevant that an illegal com
bination of ice dealers exists here and
the determination of District Attorney
Otto Bosshard to prosecute the ice
Attorney General Sturdevant finds
from evidence furnished by Mr. Bos
shard that five local ice dealers held a
meeting and fixed prices illegally and
in restraint of trade, and that an of
fense had been committed in carrying
out a scale of advanced prices, in some
instances three times higher than the
former prices.
E. H. Derr of the People's Ice com-
any, who is credited with speaking
those alleged to be in a combina
tion, denies that any agreement exists
and says the advanced prices are due
to an increased cost of production, and
that the ice dealers will fight the case
to a finish.
One of the strongest bits of evidence
ag/unst the alleged trust organizers is
said to be contained in an issue of a
local paper in which an announcement
of the agreement to raise the prices of
ice and maintain a uniform scale ap
peared bearing the signatures of the
dealers One dealer is quoted as hav
ing said there was a meeting at which
prices were fixed, but that they were
later "unfixed," tho there has been
no decrease in the price of ice.

Complaints of Other Roads
Against U. P. Brings Re
view of Matter.
By W. W. Jermane.
"Washington, July 26.The Interstate
Commerce commission has reopen
ed the Peavey elevator case, involving
contracts between Peavey & Co. and the
Union Pacific Railroad company for
handling grain at terminal points on
the latter road, and will hold a hear
ing on it at some time to be fixed
later in the summer.
.The order for reopening was based on
the application of the Chicago, Great
Western, the Burlington and Santa Fe
roads. They make specific allegations
that the contract between Peavey and
Union Pacific, under which the charge
is made of 1}4 cents for handling gram
has senously reduced their net and
proper revenue, and in creating an ad
vantage in favoi of Missouri river
gram markets of which advantage other
markets and dealers have been com
The petitions also calf attention to
the fact in the decision rendered by the
commission last summer, this matter of
contract was not a proper subject to be
dealt with, as the inquiry was not made
on complaint, but was simply an ex
parte proceeding initiated by the com
In the decision to be reviewed com
mission held that the big compensation
pdid for elevator and transfer service is
not unreasonable that the Union Paci
fic is entitled to perform the work it
self or hire it done by others and is not
legally at fault or guilty of wrong do
ing because, incidentally, those em
ployed bv the earner to transfer gram
are aided more or less in another line
of business in which they are engaged
that any miury or detriment resulting
to rival carriers under the arrangement
is something which the law does not
seek to prevent.
In the order reopening the case the
commission says that "all carriers,
opeiators of elevators and shippers in
terested herein have an opportunity to
present further testimony and argument
Upon any and all questions involved."
Milwaukee's "Boy Mayor" Pleads
for Action, Scoring "Par
lor Socialism."
Peoria, 111., July 26."Young men
for action, for warfare, for actual
work old men for advice, based upon,
experience"such was the keynote of
a creed for "The Young Man Poli-
tics," outlined by Mayoi Sherburn M.
Becker the "boy mayo r" of Milwaukee
an address here. Mayor Becker
spoke before a large audience at Al
Fiesco Park, the occasion being a bene
fit lor St. Stephen's parish. He said
in part:
I want to give the.young man con
templating a public career a few words
of advice, based upon my own experi
ence of nearly five years of public of
fice. \_
"Make up your mud to be honest
and fair, both n business and in poli
tics. Work mne-tentks*o the time,
and when occasion requires, work the
other tenth. You can enjoy yourself
with hard work if you will but think
so. Work is the best thing for every
young man idleness is the greatest evil
and breeds dishonesty and corruption.
"Make up your mind, when you ac
cept a public trust, that you represent
all the people, not only those who have
by their votes chose you as such, but
those who have opposed you, and who,
perhaps, misunderstand you and your
purposes. Do not, under any circum
stances, allow prejudice to swerve you
from your best ludgment.
"Have a platform short and pointed.
Be sure it is right and stand upon it
to the end. Do not make it compli
cated or verbose, for if you do your
planks will break and you will find
yourself in trouble.
"Do something all the time, but in
your ambition to do something, don't
do things that count for naught. Make
plans, think of them, and.then carry
them out. Have as many ideas to de
velop as you possibly can at one time
still possess yourself of as much con
centration as possible. Finish your
woik as you go along.
A few weeks ago there came, to
Milwaukee a young 'parlor socialist'
who informed his hearers a public
address that he had been idle for years
that he produced nothing and that he
had no object life except to spend
the money earned bv labor and which
did not rightfully belong to him. When
I read his address in a paper I felt like
saying to him: 'Go to work you have
the ability and you are needed stop
talking and do something. Get out of
the parlors of the rich if you think you
belong somewhere else.' And it struck
me that a desk a bank or a news-

These consisted of Gus Albright, who
sat trouserless astride a limb of a tree,
and the members of the Blume family,
who were in their residence in a state
of siege.
Mike had been considered dangerous
for some time, and yesterday Louis
Blume, the owner, decided to have him
killed Thereupon he sent for Mr.
Solterman, the butcher.
Astride a horse, Butcher Solterman
rode into the Blume farm pasture. Mike
took a good look and then charged full
tilt. Down went horse and matador.
Solterman's right leg was broken at
the ankle and dislocated at the knee.

Then he immediately hastened out

without success. Blume's shouts fin
ally attracted another man, who
brought a rifle.
One bullet put Mike in a marketable
