According to the Chicago Tribune,
the speech of President Hoosevelt at
Indianapolis on Memorial day "will be
devoted to a very Important, even i£
a seemingly inopportune subject. It
is said that, on that day he will for
the first time, give expression to the
plan wtiich he has been considering
for several months by which the dif
ference between the actual value and
the alleged value of the railroads of
the country may be determined. This
feature of .the common carrier in
vestigation is in fact the foundation
upon whicli all sensible and safe leg
islation against the present conditions
must be based.
The courts hold that all freight nnd
passenger rates to be legal must be
based upon the cost of building and
operating the road. In a word that
they must be such that they will give
a fair income upon, the actual money
invested. The justice of this rule of
law is too apparent to need elaliora
tion. Herein lies the great opportu
nity of the railroads 'however to de
feat the very principle which has been
laid down. The actual value of the
railroads and the actual cost of oper
ating them should be the basjs upon
which the rates should be based.
The legislature of Minnesota ap
pointed a committee to Investigate
this condition. It found that the cap
italization and funded debt of the
Great Western road was $143,688 per
mile, while the actual value of
the road per mile was $28,000. The
average valuation of the roads of the
state per mile was $27,000, while the
capitalisation per mile was $50,000.
The difference In these two amounts
indicates the watering of the stock,
or the amount of paper which is out
standing against the property more
than it is actually worth.
It is a simple proposition that if
the road attempts to fix a schedule
of either passenger or freight rates
which will produce a certain percent
age of income upon a valuation of
$143,688, it must be approximately
five times as large as though it were
based upon a valuation of $28,000.
This is exactly the condition of the
Great Western road. It would matte
a material difference which of thiese
bases would be taken by the court
in determining the reasonableness of
a rate. The actual valuation of the
road and the actual cost of operat
ing the same should be the guide by
which legislative action for the fixing
of rates should be controlled. The
opportunity for dodging is apparent
when the difference in the figures
given aboye is considered.
The president proposes to outline
a plan, if the Tribune is correct,
which will have for its purpose the
determination of the actual values of
the railroads of the country. It is
a big plan. This is a very Wg coun
try. There are, thousands of miles of
railroad track in it, to say nothing
of the railroad stations, freight hous
es, roundhouses, yards, shops, rolling
stock, etc. To ascertain the actual
cash values has the look of a very
large, difficult, delicate and costly un
dertaking. The first comer is not
competent to pass upon values. Ex
perts will be needed. Time will be
needed. Money will be needed. It
will be like a census taking.
No-man in the entire nation is more
at home, however, in big undertak
ings than the president himself, and
if there is a way for a practical, pos
sible and sensible solution of the mat
ter the country may rest assured that
it will be given on Memorial day at
Indianapolis.
Once this fact is determined the
'regulation of both passenger and
freight rates will become a simple
matter. This is the foundation of the
regulation of the railroads and is the
only way they can be reached with
fairness and justice.

This is the most important problem
to be solvecf, for if the members can
secure a reasonable advance on their
grain they can of course afford to
hold it so long as the advance is equal
to or greater than the interest paid
on the collateral loan.
N
The truth is, this feature will solve
itself. The banks of the country are
desirous of loaning money on collat
eral that is reasonably safe. There
is probably no class of personal prop
erty safer as such collateral than the
crops which have been stored in the
gTanaries on the farms or in the ele
vators owned by the farmers. The
dependence of the banks upon the
farmers in the grain growing regions
is so great that they will be ready
and willing to give to the latter all
the business assistance they may need
when such assistance is based on a'
substantial foundation.
It will therefore not be necessary
for the farmers of the country to
establish banks for the carrying of
those of their number who ipay need
such assistance. The banks will car
ry them. Until ^conditions change,
they will not be injured by the com
binations among these banks. They
make their money from the loans
which they carry. If these are based
on the crops in storage as collateral,
it is as safe as the. average collateral
secured by the bank, for whether the
security be personal or property, the
risk is always there. But the one in
which the crop is pledged is safe,
because the\ collateral will always
command a market and can always
be converted into cash' on a reason
ably short notice. If the society
should succeed in securing terminal
elevators, this would facilitate mat
ters so far 'as loans are concerned,
for then the warehouse receipt? could
be used as collateral, and the respon
sibility of the borrower wodld be
fixed.
As with the matter of carrying the
crops for those who must convert
them into cash so soon as they are
harvested, or befoi'e the price can be
fixed at a desirable point by the farm
ers, so will many other problems
which now seem insurmountable,
solve themselves when they are ap-\
proached by the combined forces of
the wheat growers of the country.
The farmers are on the right road
and if ipersistent in their course, must
certainly win in the end.
The Evening Press talks of having
President Roosevelt impeached. A fly
once sat on the axle of a king's car
riage as it was being driven along
a dusty road. Looking out at the
clouds of dust which folkiwed the
passage of the carriage ftie fly ex
claimed, j"My! What a dust I am
raising!"
The Press says President Roose
velt has endorsed Senator Hans
brough. A few days ago Governor

spoke In a strong voice and with great
earnestness, pausing frequently at
the outbursts of applause. As the
president concluded his address the
flags enveloping the statue were re

emerged through the folds of red,
white and blue. At the same ^nstant
the boom of an artillery salute came
from a battery of heavy guns near by,
and the strains of The Star-Spangled
Banner came from the Marine band.
It wa6 an Inspiring moment, and, led/

PEOPLE ARE WISE
AND BUY TICKETS
INiG.F
Passengers from Inland North
Dakota Have Their Bag
gage Re-Checked.
The people ai wise.
With the three-cent rate in "North
Dakota and a two-cent rate in Min
nesota, the passenger traffic in East
Grand Porks was quite aotive last
night and this morning.
Twenty tickets to the twin cities
was the record at the Northern Pa
cific in East Grand Forks last even
ing, while the Great Northern also
reported excellent sales on tickets to
the cities. Besides this, there were
all kinds of short haul tickets sold
at the East Grand Forks stations of
the Northern Pacific and the Great
Northern.
And the people were wise to the
difference in cost on a through ticket
from North Dakota ]oints to Minne
sota points. This was shown at the
East side depots last evening. Quite
a number of people left the train at
the station there, purchased tickets
jfor Minnesota points, and at the same
time had their baggage re^checked.
While there will be some little incon
venience as a result of the condi
tions, it is not believed that any'seri
out trouble will result.
The hackmen nnd draymen of the
two cities are profiting as. a Tesult of
the change. Many Grand Forks peo
-ple now take a hack to the. East side
depots, whereas before hey could
have easily walked to the Grand
Forks depot. Even with the hack
fare, on a trip of over fifty miles there
will be a saving made to the trav
eler.

COURTING COST $5 A TEAR.
Associated Preaa to The Bveatac Tlan.
Orenburg, N. Y., May 2.—The Court
ing of Barbara RutZ, a well-to-do
young farmer girl of this place by
Joseph Moser, cost the latter an aver
age of less than $5«a year during the
fifteen yeaf*s the couple have been "go
ing together." The wedding was set
for this spring, when Miss Rutz broke
the engagement* because Moser had de
clared that her mother should not be
allowed to live with them, although
their future home was the property of
the girl. Moser openly lamented that
"had spent so much money" on the
girl, and, this came to the eara of Miss
Rutz. She immediately, demanded
her former beau make out am itemized
bill of 'the cost of. the courtship, which
he did, the total aggregating $71.75.
He was given a .check for the amount

The H^ll-Morgan interests will also
make a determined effort to get con
trol of the property. The terminal
company now has 300,000 shares of
stock outstanding, 170,000 being pre
ferred and 130,000 common. It is
stated that about 240,000 shares of
this stock, or 80 per cent., are in the
hands of the Hill-Morgan interests,
for which the/ paid an average of $26.
The other 60,000 shares are largely
held by New York parties, who .have
combined for self-protection. These
minority stockholders fear' that the
Hill-Morgan interests will seek to bid
in the property at at price not' more
than sufficient to pay'the bonded and

holders with nothing, but worthless
pieces of paper as mementoes of their

FRUIT AMD CEREAL.
Fashionable People feeem to Make
Them the Proper Moralig Feel.
Possibly it may have happened that
the sentiment of the Mussulman re
garding the (Ishiness of his wlves and
daughters has had some psychological
effect upon the women of New York.
At1ea8t it is true .that the' tendency
of American women is toward taking
6n flesh, and that those reversely in
clined made prodigious efforts in'the
direction of having their bones well
covered. The Mussulnyiin buys his
w4fe and sells his daughters by the
pound, the fatter they are, therefore,'
the more his price is augmented.
Thinness among, his women Is not only
a calamity, but ain evidence of pettarty.
Judicious fattening Is practiced among'
his people somewhat as an art might
be In another nation. It is some of
the Mussulman's pet ideas.about fat
tening foods that New York women
are now emulating in their fad for
eating fruits and cereals.
Dates opened and filled with fresh
butter after the pits have been re
moved is one of the most favored diets
for thin women. It is said to put fat
on the hones, while at the same time
invigorating the system through the.
prevention of indigestion, literally it
is a stunning process with those who
desire to gain flesh in this way. The
datqs are eaten in as great quantity
and as often as possible. The desire
for other food is oveMome by tjie pre
ponderance of the d^teB and butter
that are consumed. At the same time
there is no Restriction against eating
whatever other food the appetite
craves.
Women who do not go in exclusively
for the date and Vutter food some
times' prefer to eat cereals in consid
erable quantity that have been made
tasty with raisins. Either the raisins
are cooked with the cereals or they
are eaten from a separate dish in con
nection wi|h the cereal. White cereals
and rice are prefer^sfd byrfibme. wom
en, while others like better the ones
made of whole wheat. But in- either
case a little -overspread cream and
raisins ai» tfecessary adjuncts.. tn
cases, moreover, where fattening is
despeVately desired a tablespoonful of
glycerine is mixed,through the cereal
before covering "it with cream. The
taste is not disagreeable, adding only
a little sweetness to the flavor.
Cereals fried in olive oil is another
form In which -they are relished by
those desiring to put on flesh. The
manner of their preparation is then
very simple. After having been mixed
with a white sauce they are rolled into
shape with the yolk of an egg and
bread crumbs and later dipped in the
olive oil. Olive oil, in fact, Is promi
nent on the menu of the moment.
Fruit and nu^ salads are served fairly
swimming in' it, and even small fishes
have it over them asa sauce similar
to that of sardines.
A paste made of almonds, rolled
and fried in olive oil is one of the
especially delicious morsels eaten by
seekers of flesh. Sometimes in mak
ing these almond croquettes, more
over, a white cereal is used as a stiff
ener or to give them proper consisten
cy before serving.
Compotes of stewed fruits and rice
are now one of Sthe popular dishes
at home luncheons! For occasions of
more form they can be made attractive
.by the addition of whipped cream.
Among* salads those made apples and
nuts have retaineid their popularity.
A pretty fashion at present popular
is to use apples to hold salad as well
as for making the salad proner. Very
large bright, red apples are first se
lected, and these have their tops
sliced off and their i'ner parts scooped
oi for later use. They appear then
not unlike small Edam cheeses. From
the removed centers of the. apples' the
salad is devised which later fills them
to overflowing. Indeed, it is very pop
ular to .crush the soft part of the
apples and. mix it with chopped nuts
and/French dressing in rich Olive oilv
before replacing it in the apple dishes.
The whole is then bowed to" as one
of the wholesome and fattening salads.
It is, besides, extremely pleasing to
look upon.
In making dressing for salads a fad
is abroad to substitute lime juice for
that of lemon, which in'its turn re
places vinegaf in fashionable house
holds. The lime jjiilice lends a some-,
rfhat musty taste to salads which is
not altogether understood by the un
initiated. Those of gastronomical pro
clivities, however, greet it eagerly.
The sweet, that is chosen by careful
women desiring flash is an almond
plstache nougat, most delightful, in
deed,-to the taste. It is-thought, to
hold the fattening propensities and yet
to be chary of producing the unpleas
ant results of [many' sweets., This
sweet, however, is much more'costly
in America than in Italy and tyiclly,
Th^ Sicilian, of course, like the Mus
sulman, desires strongly that his wom
en shall be plump.

Frank McGuigan, the new vice pres
ident of the Great Northern, before he
had been in office two weeks, tele
graphed an order for 150 new locomo
tives for his road, to one of the big
'locomotive works of the east. The
wire said that the order was condi

in ninety days. It was accepted.
iii substance the foregoing is the
information received here in the shape
of a dispatch from Seattle, Wash.,
which is appended below:

from officers of the Great Northern
information to the effect that ftrst

ion of these lumber authorities, the
success of McGuigan in getting a
promise of speedy delivery of engines
effectually explodes the assertion so
often made at hearings of the inter
state commerce commission that the
locomotive works of the country are
from one to two years behind in their
orders.

and the interstate commerce oommis
sion has resulted, no say the lumber
men, in,a final awakening of railroad
powers so that now there is a pros
pect that more than 25 per cent of
the-car capacity of the sound lumber
