WASHINGTON, Dec. 28. The >> i problem has h id Its Influence on the movement <<( International com merri- during the month, according to ;i statement Issued by the bureau of sta tlnti , department <>f commerce and labor. While the statement declares it I" Im possible to determine to what extent Inadequate transportation facilities af fectr'ri the movemen of grain, live stock and meal products, and In some local* itles lumber and coal In November, ii ■ays It can undoubtedly be affirmed that they would have been imirh heavier had the railroads been fully able to enpr with the situation. A marked decline Is shown In move ments of certain imported staples, when compared with November of last year, but an Increase for the eleven month! Of the present year. The total livestock receipts at seven Interior primary markets during No vember aggregated 3.534,117 head. I tall- Ing off of about 300,000 head from the same month i>r last year. For the eleven months of the- present year like arrivals aggregated 37,442,12!) head, com pared with 37,089,707 head for the like period of 1905. A considerable falling oft is shown In Rhlpments In packing house products from Chlci.go during November, there being a total of 21R.110.712 pounds, against 296,060,362 for the same period of 1905. The moat noticeable decline is shown in receipts of grain. The total figures for fifteen interior markets during No vember have been 75,779,424 bushels, showing a falling off of over 17,900,000 bushels In November, 1905.

Deceraeses which occurred in the re ceipts of wheat, barley and rye were offset by an increase In the receipts of com and oats. FORTY WEST ROADS HESITATE Some Cannot Afford to Increase Wages, They Say By Associated Press. CHICAGO, Dec. 28.— The probability of serious trouble between the forty western railroads and their employes ■who have demanded a 15 per cent in crease in wages has become more likely. The managers of the roads affected met yesterday and decided that no action would be taken until the train men made fresh overtures. Meanwhile representatives of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and the Brotht'ilviod of Locomotive Engineers from each of the roads met to await a reply to their demands. They had known that the managers were to meet and awaited iin expected invita tion to a conference but none was re ceived. Three meetings of the two brotherhoods were held during the morning, afternoon and evening. The meeting broke up with the threat that feotllethlng would be doing pretty quick if they wore not recognized. Chairman Benjamin Thomas of the bourd of managers committee refused to make any statement as to what had been done at the meeting which <vas of less than an hour's duration. The trouble seems to be that few roads can afford an increase in operat ing expenses. An increase of 10 per cent in the wages of all the trainmen, it is said, would take away the small remaining chances of dividends, and these roads would prefer to take chances with a strike rather than grant the increased wages without making an effort to ward off the blow. MORE PAY FOR 30,000 HANDS New York Central Announces an Im. mediate Increase NEW YORK, Dec. 28.— 1t was an nounced ypstprday from the office of Treating Wrong Disease. Many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease, another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous exhaustion or prostration, another with pain hero and there, and in this way they all present alike to themselves and their easy-going and indifferent, or over-busy doctor, sep- arate and distinct diseases, for which he, assuming them to be such, prescribes his pills and potions. In reality, they are all only tymptama caused by some uterine disease. The physician, ignorant of the cau(« of suffering, encourages tills prac- tice until large bills are made. The suf- fering patient gets no better, but probably . worse, by reason of the delay, wrong treatment and consequent complications. A proper medicine like Dr. Pierces Fa- vorite Prescription, directed to the cavse would hare entirely removed the disease thereby dispelling all those distressing symptoms, and institut.ng comfort In- stead- of prolonged misery.

OWNERS BOOST SUBWAY SCHEME SAY IT WILL ENHANCE VALUES BEYOND TUNNELS Will Sacrifice Footways Rather Than See Enterprise Delayed Longer. • No Further Delays to Be Brooked , All the forces favoring the granting of franchises, permits, privileges or grants to the Harriman Interests to i build subways and tunnels, cross I streets and exter ' their trolley lines in Los Angeles got together yesterday for the purpose of giving the movement a hard boost. Property owners interested in the Improvement associations north of the proposed tunnels were especially active in inducing their friends to see the councilman and induce them not to put any further stumbling blocks, in the way of getting the five millions which i Harriman says he will spend on the 1 Los Angeles-Pacific and Intel-urban | lines improvements as a starter. For a time It seemed that there would be a hitch over the construction of a footway through the tunnels. The I associations' committees were Inclined to demand that tin y be put In for the benefit of pedestrians going to and from the hill district on the north. The Harriman agents, however, said that footways would result in the use fulness of the tunnels being Impaired as the plans call for an 'nclosed under-, ground channel designed to permit trains to go through ;.t full speed in i order to make a ten-minute run to i Hollywood and a twenty-minute run to I the beaches, Now the Information has leaked out) thai the associations will merely try to; get the footways, but under no cii'cum- ■ Htuncee will they he urged or demanded ! if it delays the subway enterprise*.'] Nothing Is to be allowed to stand In the i way of granting the privileges with this usual safeguards. Such Is the sent! ment of the property owners near the I tunnels as expressed by the men who ■ represent them at the city hall hoar- • ings. . ! Realty history is that an Immediate > advance In values follows the mere I announcement that a tunnel will be! built and the prospect has stimulated I values in the Temple and First street sections notlceab'*-. ,:<./■■ For that reason the members of the associations want the city to hurry up with the grants. They have for veins labored to induce the trolley company | to agree to pay part of the cost of the tunnel, and now that the company pro- I poses to do even more it in felt that no I hindrance should be permitted. The city will gain much In taxes because Of the increased values, it is argued. City Attorney Mathews and Assistant i Hewitt spent all day yesterday with tin- engineers and attorneys of the trol- 1 ley roads, and at times members of the I board of public works and str/eet de partment men were called Into con ferenee. Descriptions of the property sought to be traversed or undermined are being set out In legal phraseology and expert assistance was required. Every effort is being made to have the proposed permits ready for presen tation Monday. ii they are not ready councilmen say they will be prepared to. pass a docu ment prepared on correct lines by the trolley representatives In order to get the grants through with the year's end. « « » LOOK INTO FREIGHT BOOKS United States Grand Jury Examines Santa Fe Records in Presence of Auditor The members of the United States grand jury passed yesterday afternoon investigating the Santa Fe freight records. G . A. Davidson, auditor of the road, was present at the session, but his friends say he is there either to pro duce the records or give excuses for not doing so. An indictment must be based on figures taken from the railroad books which indicate rebates. Personal evi dence is discredited, and this is the reason United States District Attor ney Lawler is making such strenuous efforts to get the books into court. < ■ > CHILDREN GIVE LITTLE PLAYLET CLOSING EXERCISES HELD AT BROWNSON HOUSE Bishop Conaty Is Guest of Honor and Makes an Interesting Address to the Youth of the Club The closing exercises of Christmas week were held yesterday afternoon | mill evening ut the Bruwnspn house on ; . 1 kson street.

A. Burgman, a stick erman employed by the West Coast Planing Mill company, was whirled around and around through the air yesterday morning; and it was only by almost superhuman strength that he tlung to the spokes In spite of the in tense pain and saved his life. It Is part of Bargman's work to start the twenty-five horse-power en gine at the mill each morning. Yester day he went as usual to his work and, with tho negro engineer, Jim Brown, approached the machine. Both men climbed on the wheel to give it Its first impulse and Brown then jumped and turned the switch before Barg man could leave the wheel. The gasoline in the cylinder at once exploded and the wheel began turning at a frightful rate with Bargman clinging to the spokes. Brown at once turned off the current and did all In his power to stop the wheel.' He suc ceeded in doing so a few minutes later and Burgman dropped exhausted to the ground. A groat deal of skin had been torn from his left leg below the knee and he suffered two lacerations near the ankle. Bargman'l escape Is consideded little short of miraculous. Had he loosened his hold for a second he would have been dashed to the floor and probably killed.
