2-CENT FARE IS
Traveling Men Buy Tickets
Instead of Scrip
Tnrpe.ka, ' Kan., Dec. 13. Evdence
of the manner in which the two-cent
Hassensrer rate law Is cutting Into
the sale ot mileage tickets of various
forma by the western roads la fur
fiiahed by the October returns. For
that month the sales of the creden
tial forms number 78, as compared
with 3,092, for the corresponding
month last year.
During the month 953 1,000-mlle
tickets were sold, as compared with
11.68 for the same month last year.
Jt the 1, 000-mile form of tickets
143 were sold, as compared with 1.
7M for the same month last year.
Rhould the attempts be made to
have the two-cent laws set asldj
prove unavailing, It is not improb
able that the sale of mileage tickets
eventually will cease and commer
cial travelers, like other individuals,
will pay their way as they go.
Agents of the various ines In this
city report a falling off in the sale
of Interchangeable mileage books,
which almost amounts to their elimi
nation as a factor in the passenger
Before the passage of the Hepburn
bill every traveling man and others
whose business took them, away from
home to any great extent bought a
mileage book. The tickets containing
1.000 miles were sold to the traveler
at the regular rate of three cents
per mile, or 330 per book, and when
the coupons were exhausted, the
holder could turn in the cover and
receive a rebate of 310, which made
tils fare but two cents per mile.
Figures show that the average life
of an interchangeable mileage book
was only 17 days. The only persons
who now seem to have any use for
these books are those travelers who
are oui. on an extended tour and
some few wholesale houses who use
this method to keep more closely In
touch with the expenditures of their
traveling representatives than would
toe possible were they to pay cash for
their tickets as they use them.
Figures on file in the office of In
diums polls agents show that this class
of business has fallen off from 60 to
80 per cent and it is regarded as
only a question of a very short time
when the sale of the books will be

The new bridge are much like the

HOW HE HAS
L. T. Cooper Tells Chicago Reporter
Why He Accomplishes So Much
No man In recent years has been
more successful In restoring human
health than L. T. Cooper. During his
stay In Chicago, and while he was
meeting thousands of people dally,
he gave the following reason for the
remarkable demand for his medicine
to a reporter:
,Mr. Cooper said: "My New Dis
covery Is successful because It cor
rects the stomach. My theory Is that
few can be sick It the digestive ap
paratus Is working properly. It nat
urally follows) that few can be well
with a poor digestion.
"I know from experience that most
of the tired, half-sick people that
are so common nowadays have half
sick, stomachs. Put the stomach In
shape, and nature does 'the rest. The
result la general good health. ' My
medicine does this. That Is why fifty
thousand people here In Chicago are
using it who never heard of me un
til a month ago."
Among the fifty thousand mention
ed y Mr. Cooper who used his
medicine In Chicago Is Mrs. Hilda
Pflueger. living at 1204 Ainslle ave
nue. This Is the statement she
makes concerning her experience
with the mdlcine:

Tucson, Ariz., Dec. 13. Col. W. S.
Sturgls, republican national commit
teeman for Arizona, who is spending
a few days tn the city. Is not mak
ing predictions at present regarding
Arizona's republican delegation to
the next national convention ot tnal
party to be held in Chicago.
"We will elect our delegates as
usual some time In the aprlng but it
is far too early to tate whether they
will be instructed or who they win
be pledfsed for," remarked Col. Stur
gls today. "The political map is un
settled at present and It would cer
tainly take a prophet to tell in ad
vance what the outcome will be.
Here In Arizona as elsewhere we
will allow the matter of delegates to

territory lies between him and gov.
"In the event that both Taft and
Foraker are candidates before the
republican national convention whom
will the Arizona delegation sup

Col. Sturgls did not answer this
question direct, nor have any other
prominent republicans, senator "or

congress and in the senate played
the leading role in defeating the
Jointure bill. Secretary Taft on the
other hand Is supposedly tne Koose

"Regarding Taft and Foraker, I
can only say that It looks very much
as ir neither would be able to com
mand the solid Ohio delegation and
It would be contrary to all precedent
to expect a nomination without the
solid backing of your own common
wealth," Col. Sturgls remarked.
"X am certain that if I were a
candidate for a national office I
would not make any fight without
the solid backing of the republicans
In this territory. However preced

comment. He declined, however, to
express a preference for either Tnft
