The rnllronit nttonieys nre mnklng
a determined light for their clients niul
Scnnlor KlkliiH, chairman of the Inter
state Commerce Committee of the Uni
ted States Senate, nnil n majority of
the ItrimMlran members of the commit
too are helping the railroads hy delay
ing nctlon on the hills heforo them.
The evident Intention Is to compromise
with the railroads so that the most Im
portant provision of the promised leg
islation Is to he Inching, which should
give the Interstate Commerce Comnils
tlon power to make n reasonahle rate
in Hen of n rate declared to he unrea
sonable. One of these railroad attor
neys who resides In Washington took
the time, trouble, and expense to go to
Tfew Orleans to address the annual
meeting of the American Association
for the Advancement or Science. lie
attacked President Roosevelt's plan
and arraigned the railroad bill passed
by the House of Representatives at the
last session of Congress. lie nertcil
that there Is no genuine instance of
lujustlco 'In Interstate railway rates
which cannot be remedied under the
present law, unit presented the view
that the Judicial power Is adequate to
control future rates.
This audacious claim Is on n par
with the plundering tactics of the cor
porations. How have the shippers and
the public fared In trying to obtain Jus
tice In the courts, with the railroads
using nil the delays that the law nl
lows? Only those with a long purse
and whose business cannot be ruined
by the obstacles and delays, that the
railroad managers know so well how to
Inaugurate, can successfully fight the
railroads In the I'ederal courts, where
the Judges, If not favorable to the cor
porations, are most ot them under
obligations to the corporations for rail
road passes, and one Judge, nt least,
for private cars and subsistence on his
limir'uis totirs about Ids district
That Is why the public are demand
ing that the Interstate Commerce Com
mission be given power to llx a reason
able rate In place of one It has de
cl.ircd unreasonable under the pre-ent
law. When the prta'iit law was pas-eil
It was Intended that the Commission
should have the jiowcr to declare a
rate tireasonable, and this power Is
still 'jndNpnted. It win also Intended
that the law should give the Commis
sion power to llx n re.i-onable rate In
place of the one declared unreasonable,
nml this was admitted by the railroads
for some years, hut eventually on a
technicality was overruled by the Su
preme Court. To supply that deficiency
In the In w Is the purpose of the present
uprising, and Is what the railroads nre
lighting. It Is nliMird to lielieve that
Congress Intended to leave power In
the railroads to continue to charge an
unreasonable rate and compel shippers
to apply to the courts for redress. If
that had been the Intention of Con
gress there would lie some Indication of
such a purim-e In the law.
Nothing short of giving the Commis
sion that power will protect the shlii
pers and the public, and nil the sophis
try of the sjieclnl pleading of the rail
road attorneys cannot turn the people
from their determination for that
"Mliiare deal."

The railroad lobbyists ran up
against a stone wall when they nt
lempted to coerce or corrupt the re
form Legislature of Ohio. The rail
roads have a combination by which
they Jointly pay their projiortional
share of the expense of the lobbying
In the different States, similar to the
plan of the life Insurance companies.
When the chief railroad olllcials dis
covered that the Ohio reform Legisla
ture would bo liable to oass a two-cent
fare hill one railroad sent Its passen
ger department man to the Ohio capi
tal, says the 1'eoria, III., Star, to lobby
against the bill. On his return he said:
"1 neer ran against such n game
liefore In my life. The Ohio house cer
tainly la crazy from the front to the
back door. It has the bit in Its teeth
nml is running iiwny with It. We
thought the members were going to
hold an lu instigation, but it looked to
nie like a railroad funeral. When a
Pennsylvania man pleaded for time In
order to furnish statistic!) one represen
tative told him they did not want sta
tistics, but what they wanted was a
two-cent fare.
'That settled him, and then Henry
Wnthrop started In to tell them why
the railroads could not afford to carry
pasengers for two cents. Itepresenta
tlvc Trelner told him how it could i.
done. The railroads would save
money,' declared the legislator, 'by
'striking you and your kind who are
banging around this capital from off
their pay roll. It Is needless to say
that Anthrop took the count.
"When C. C Ileinleln. also a. rail
road nttorwy.'canie to liat. Representa
tive Wcrtz culled three strike on him
before he had tlmo to swing his stick

over the plate. Theu the representa

Ilaliroad Commission was but a part
-nnd parcel of the railroad Interests of
the State.

one of the members Is strictly honest.
If you were to give the poorest one
of them $100,000 the first thing he
would do would be to expose you on
the floor of the house."
As the Democrats control the Ohio
Legislature, having a majority ot the
Senate, and hy combination with some
Independent Republicans control the
House, there Is for the first time for
many yenrs n square deal for the peo
ple of the Stnte. The railroads have
discovered that the majority of the
members cannot be controlled In the
usual wny tliat Republican legislatures
have been purchased, and the corrupt
lobby Is knocked out of business. It Is
seldom that evidence can lie produced
of such corrupt deals between the rail
roads and Republican legislatures, but
the nlnrc evidence is voluntarily given
by this railroad official and Indicates
the rotten condition the Republicans
have fostered, jfo wonder the voters
turned the rascals out, and such rev
elations as the above will lead the
voters to take similar nctlon when
electing other legislatures, nnd especial
ly when electing Congress next XH.
Results front Protective Tariff.
The revenues of the government will
not allow Congress to nppopriate for n
river and harbor hill. If the tariff was
revised so as to produce more revenue.
Oermnny nnd other countries could In
crease their trade with us, our rivers
and harbors could lie improved nnd
our war ships and merchant ships
would soon le able to get In and out
of Xew York harlior without running
on a mud lint. This is one of the re
sults of protection, nnd nnothcr nnd
more Important result to most people
Is the trust high prices which the tariff
fosters. And yet the Republicans
stand pat and decline to disturb the
tariff schedules, which do not produce
enough revenue for necessary Improve
ments and keep the cost of living so
high that many people niut economize
and eien do without necessities. When
you nre called iiihih next fall to vote

"I happen to know," said the Cap
tain, "that officers of high rank who
came to the volunteer army from the
regular service had, after the war, a
great longing for the friendship of the
men who served under them. The last
time General Rosccrans was In the city
it an army gathering be sat next to
one of his old lieutenants who had be
come famous as a novelist and promi
nent In public life. For a time the gen
eral took no notice of the lieutenant,
and the latter, resentful, took no no
tice of the general. I saw where the
trouble was and smilingly Introduced
them. Then Rosccrans 'said with that
rare smile of his, 'I have ben waiting
for the Judge to speak to me; It was
his place, you know.'
"Then the great strategist opened his
ncart nnd said that when he met so
many of his old command prominent In
literary, commercial, or public life he
wondered how much they cared for
their old commander. lie was not long
In donbt as the Judge, who In his turn
explained that most of the old volun
teers were hero worshipers and that
their old generals stood on high pedes
tals, not to be approached without
ceremony. Rosccrans laughed at this,
but said that If the men of his com
mand cared as much for their general
as their general cared for them they
wonld rush Into his arms whenever
they met him.
-Rosecrans went to Congress from
California in 1SS3. and lived In Wash
ington for several years. In that time
he met many of bis old soldiers. One
day an old resident showing a friend
from Iowa about the city said as they
passed an elderly gentleman on the
street. That was Rosecrans.' He was
surprised to see his sedate and digni
fied friend turn and go at a fnll run
to Rosecrans. He feared that Rosc
crans wonuld not like that sort of meet
ing, and he hurried forward to explain.
As he approached he saw the two
shake hands, and saw that Rosecrans
held on to the hand of the Iowsn.
The general turned as the old resi
dent came up to say how glad be was
to meet an old comrade who. In the
hour of greatest extremity at Chlcka
manga, had served hlrn welL The two
became great friends, although one
commanded an army and the other
rode a horse and carried a carbine in
the cavalry. When the crash came at
Chkkamauga the cavalryman had rid
den to the side of his general, and had
stayed there until the general com
manding was ont of danger."
"I remember," said the major, "the
surprise of General Stecdman when he
met one of his old soldiers under most
unexpected circumstances. The gen
eral was greatly Interested In a series
of military sketches appearing In one
of the dailies and wanted to meet the
author. I Introduced him. and after
expressing his appreciation of the
work, he said to the writer: Ton
were In the army, of course, but In
what division? 'In your division,' was
the reply. ''I carried a rifie In your
old regiment.' The h yon did."
said the general. 'And yet you write
like that. That's letter than being a
major general.'
"As we walked away Steedman said:
No wonder we licked them, with men
like that In the ranks. Bar. what are
we coming to? I find my men In pub
lic oQce or successful as lawyers, or
making money In business, most of them
running away ahead of me, and asking
no favors of anyone. I wonder If the
bond of comradeship will hold together
the major generals and the privates."
This was In ISTi Long before he died
the general knew the bond wonld hold,

him that he socked him once with a

A Coirbor'w Lesson.
Sherman's army. In Its march to the
sea, devastated certain parts of Georgia
for miles In Its passing. Forajlng par
ties scoured the country on each slds
of Its path. In "The Log of a Cow
boy." the author tells of his first ex
perience as the guardian of cattle an
experience which he gained in Georgia
at that time:
Our work stock consisted of two yoke
of oxen, while our other cattle num
bered three cows, and for saving them
from the foragers credit must be givca
to my mother's generalship.
There was a wild cane-brake, in
which the cattle fed, several hundred
acres In extent, about a mile from out
farm, and It was necessary to bell
them In order to locate them whrn
wanted. But the cows were In the
liabit of coming up to be milked, and a
soldier can hear a bell as well as any
I was a lad of eight at the time, and
while my two older brothers worked
our few fields. I was scat Into the cane
brake to herd the cattle. We had re
moved the bells from the oxen and
cows, but one ox was belied each even
ing, to be unbelted again at daybreak.
I always carried the bell with me,
stuffed with gras3. In order to have
It at band when wanted.
My vigil was trying to one of my
years, for the days seemed like weeks,
but the Importance of hiding our cat
tle was thoroughly Impressed upon my
mind. Food was secretly brought to
me. and under cover of darkness nr
mother end eldest brother would conic
and milk the cows; then we would ail
return home together. Before day
break we would be In the cane, listen
ing for the first tinkle, to find the cat
tle and remove the belL And my day's
work began anew.
Only once did I come near betray
ing my trust. About the middle of the
third day I grew very hungry, and ai
the cattle were lying down, I crept to
the edge of the cane-brake to see if my
dinner were not forthcoming. Soldiers
were la sight, which explained every
thing. Concealed In the rank cane, I
stood and watched them.
Suddenly a squad of five or six turn
ed a. point of the brake and rode with
in fifty feet of me. I stood like a stone
statue, my concealment being perfect
After they had passed I took a step
forward, the better to watch them as
they rode away. Just then the grass
dropped out of the bell and the bell
clattered. A red-whlstcred soldier
beard the tinkle, and wheeling bis
horse, rode back. I grasped the clap
per and lay flat on the ground, my
heart beating like a trip-hammer. Hi
rode within twenty feet of me, peering
Into the thicket of cane, and not seeing
anything unusual, turned and galloped
after his companions.
Then the lesson, taught me by my
mother, of being "faithful over a few
things," flashed through my mind; and
although oar cattle were spared to u
I felt Tery guilty.

Ij. A. Stockwell, of Indianapolis, a
United States land man, who made an
extensive tour of inspection In the
West, wrote tho following article, un
der date of Jan. 8, for an Indiana pub
lication: "States." In this letter I propose to
show by extracts from my note book
that thousands who hare come up here
from tho "States" hnvo succeeded far
beyond their most sanguine expecta

Mr. X. E. Beaumunk, of Brazil, Ind.,
was earning $100 per month with a
coal company. At about the age of 40
he had saved about $3,000. Four years
ago be landed near Hnnlcy, Sask. He
now owns 400 acres of land. Last fall
(1905) he threshed 4,700 bushels of
wheat nnd 8,100 buslicls of barley oats.
His wheat alono brought him over
$4,000, which would have paid for the
acres that it grew on. He is to-day
worth $15,000.
Tfel la Maklnsr Mont-r Fast.
In February, 1002, J, G. Smith ft
Bro. were weavers In a big cotton mill
In Lancashire, England. Coming here,
they arrived in Wapella, Bask., with
only $750 between tixtn. They were so
"green" and inexperienced that nil they
ceuld earn the flrst sumnser was $a00
per month, nnd the first winter they
had to work for their board. The, next
year, 1003, they took' Iiomestcads, nnd
by working for neighbors tbey got a
few acres broken out, upon which the
next year tliey raised n few hundred
bushels of wheat and oats. They also
bought a team and broke out about
sixty acres more. In 1903 they threshed
1,700 bushels of wheat from It, and
100 bassets of oats. Their success
kciig then assured, they borrowed some
Msey, built a good bouse, barn nnd
Implement shed, and bought a cream
separator, etc. They now have a dozen
enrs, some full-blooded pigs and chick
ens, good teams nnd implements to
tatch, and arc on the high road to
prosperity. Here are three cases se

"I never dreamed It possible to succeed

Like Arabian Xlichts.
Everywhere, on tho trains, nt the
hotels and In family, I have been told
of successes that reminded me more
of the stories in the Arabian Nights
than of this matter-of-fact, workaday
world. Yields of wheat from 35 to C3
bushels iter acre, and of oats of from
CO to 100 bushels, arc numerous in ev
ery locality and well authenticated. At
Moose Jaw, LcUibrldgc, Calgary, Ed
monton. Reglna, Brandon, nanicy and
many Intermediate places I saw cattle
and young horses fat as your grain-fed
animals of the "States" that had never
tasted grain, and whose cost to their
owners was almost nothing. At Mooso-
mln I saw a train load of 1,400 steers
n route to England, that were shaky
fat, raised as above stated. If the older
generation of farmers in Indiana, who
have spent their llv3 fn a contest with
lags and stumps, as did their fathers
before them, could see these broad
prairies dotted with comfortable homes,
large red barns and straw piles innu
merable, and the thriving towns, with
their towering elevators jammed to the
roof with "No. 1 hard," and then re
member that four or Ave yeara ago
these plains were tcnnntlcss but for
the badger and coyote, they would mar

followed the crowds as they emerged
from the trains and hurried to the
land offices, standing in line until their
respective turns to be waited on came,
and saw with what rapidity these lands
are being taken, they would certainly
catch the "disease" and want some of
It too. If these lands are beautiful, In
midwinter with their long stretches of
yellow 6tubble standing high above the
