Thousands of American women
in our homes are daily sacrificing 1 their lives to duty. In order to keep the home neat and pretty, the children well dressed and tidy, women overdo.

Pinkham's Vege table Compound helped me wonderfully, and J am so well that I can do as big'a day's work as I ever did. I wish every sick .woman would try it.

"My baby had a ruqping sore on his neck and nothing that I did for it took effect until I used Cuticura. My face was nearly full of tetter or some sim ilar skin disease.

Although official statement lias nor. been given out, it was learned at Hill ings from a source that cannot be questioned that the Northern Pacific Railway company will i oon begin th erection of a splendid new pas3en;>c. depot and that the site has been ao keted. For some time it has bean known that the structure would lie built, bn*, the location had not been decided on it is now known that the building will stand on the site where the Billing--, mills are located, between Twenty fourth and Twenty-fifth streets. It is also stated that notice has bean given to all parties having structures on tho right of way to remove them within the next sixty days, and from this it is believed that the construction of the new building will begin at the end of that time. Plans of the building indicate that it will be the finest passenger station between St.*Paul and the coast. * TO EXTEND TO THE COAST? Chicago & North-Western Officials Are Out in Montana. That the presence in Butte of a number of prominent officials of the Chicago & North-Western Railroad company affords ample evidence that an extension of the system from Belle Fourche, S. D., to Miles City, Mont., and thence to the Pacific coast, is be ing contemplated by the North-West ern, is the opinion prevailing in rail way circles. The North-Western completed its line to Belle Fourche within the last year. Surveys have been completed to Miles City, and it is understood that steel sufficient to build to Miles City has been collected at Belle Fourche. In the party of the officials now here and en route to the North west are Edward Brigham, general freight agent, and C. A. Carins, pas senger agent, both of the North-West ern; E. B.

UNITE TO KILL COYOTES. Montana Ranchmen Lose Seriously to Pests. The depredations of coyotes in the Clarke Fork valley, in the eastern part of Carbon county, have been so extensive this winter that ranchers have suffered severely in losses of tur keys and chickens. It is now pro posed .»to organize a drive and exter minate the animals. A large flat near the ranch of Former Representative J. N. Tolman probably will be selected as the scene of the roundup, and it is expected that from fifty to a hundred huntsmen will take part in the drive, forming a circle and forcing the coy otes to the center.

Commissioner S mith vs. The Standard Oil Co. From the Railway World ' January j, igoS. mse of economic reform has been in no wise cause abated by the panic which he and his kind did so much tj bring on, is out with an answer to President Moffett, of the Standard Oil Com pany of Indiana. The publication of this an swer, it is officially given out, was delayed sev eral we&ks, "for business reasons," because it was not deemed advisable to further excite the pub ic mind, which was profoundly dis turbod by the crisis. Now that Ilia storm clouds have iol.e;l by, however, the Commis sloner 1 usees again into the fray. Qr.r readers remember that the chief points in the detcnce of the Standard OR Company, as presented by President Moffett, were ( 1 ) that the date of six cents on oil from Whiting to East St. Louis has been issued to the Standard . Oil Company as tlic lawful rate by employes of the Alton, (2) that the 18-cent rate on file with the Interstate Commerce Commission was a class and not a commodity rate, never being intended to apply to oil, <:;» that oil was shipped in large quantities between Whiting and East St. Louis over the Chi. , go & East ern Illinois at Okt cents per hundred pounds, which has been filed with the Inin state Com merce Commission as the lawful rate, and (4) that the 18-ecnt rate cn oil was entirely out of proportion to lawful rates on other commodi ties between these points of a similar char acter, and of greater valeo, such, , ,r example, as linseed cil, the lawful rate on which was eight cents. President Moffett also stated that thousands of tons of freight had been sent by other shippers between these ps ir.ts under substantially tlic same conditions a , governed the shipments of the Standard Oil Company. This defence of Hie Standard Oil Company was widely quoted and has undoubtedly exert ed a powerful influence upon Iho public mind. Naturally the Administration, which has staked the success of its campaign against the "trusts" up.cn the result of its attack upon this company, endeavors to offset this influ ence, and hence the new deliverance of Com missioner Smith. We need hardly to point out that his rebut tal argument is extremely weak, although as strong:, no doubt, as the circumstances would warrant. He answers the points made by Presi dent Mcffott substantially as follows; (1) The Standard Oil Company had a traffic department, and should have known that the six-cent rate had not been filed, (2) no answer, (3) the Chi cago & Eastern Illinois rate was a secret rate because it read, not from Whiting, but from Dolton, which is described as "a village of about 1,500 population just outside of Chicago, Its only claim to note is that it has been for many years the point of origin for this and similar secret rates." The Commissioner ad mils In describing tlris rate that there was a note attached stating that the rate could also be used from Whiting. The press has quite generally hailed this statement of ihe Commissioner of Corpora tions as a conclusive refutation of what is evi dently recognized as the strongest rebuttal argument advanced by the Standard T_, ,, . , _ .

Whiting, where the oil freight originates, is not on the lines of the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, which receives its Whiting freight from the Belt Line at Dolton. The former practice, now discontinued, in filing tariffs was to make f' leni read from a point on the line of the fii ing road, and it was also general to slate on the same sheet, that, the tariff would apply to oilier points, e. g„ Whiting. The Chicago & Eastern Illinois followed this practice in filing its rate from Dolton, and making a note on the sheet that is applied to Whiting. This was hi 1895 when this method of filing tariffs was in common use. Now let us see in what way the intending shipper of oil could be misled and deceived by the fact that the Chicago & Eastern Illinois had not filed a. rate reading from Whiting. Commissioner Smith contends that "conceal ment is the only motive for such a circuitous arrangement," i. e., that this method of filing the rate was intended to mislead intending competitors of the Standard Oil Company. Suppose such a prospective oil refiner had ap plied to the Interstate Commerce Commission for the rate from Chicago to East St. Louis over the Chicago & Eastern Illinois, he would have been informed that the only rate filed \\4th the commission by this company was 6*4 cents from Dolton, and ho would have been further informed, if indeed he did not know inis already, that this rate applied throughout Chicago territory. So that whether he wished to locale his plant at Whiting, or anywhere else about. Chicago, under a:i arrangement of long standing, and which applies to all the in dustrial towns in the neighborhood of Chica go, he could have his freight delivered over I lie Belt Line to the Chicago & Eastern Illi nois at Dolton and transported to East St. Louis at a rate of 6*4 cents. Where (hen is the concealment which the Commissioner of Corporations makes so much of? Any rate— from Dolton on the Eastern Illinois or Chap pell on the Alton, or Harvey on the Illinois Central, or Blue Island on the Rock Island, applies throughout Chicago territory to ship ments from any other point in the district. So far from the Eastern Illinois filing its rate from Dolton in order to deceive the shipper, It is the Commissioner of Corporations who either betrays his _______ignorance of transpor tation customs in Chicago territory or relies on the public ignorance of these customs to deceive the public too apt to accept unques tioningly every statement made by a Govern ment official as necessarily true, although, as in the present instance, a careful examination shows these statements to be false. .

Presi dent Moffett would not, of course, accept the invitation of the grand jury although lie might have been pardoned if he had reft, red them to various official investigations by the inter slate Commerce Commission and other dc ^.1™"*" We come back, therefore, to the conclusion of the whole matter, which is that the Stand ard Oil Company of Indiana was fined an amount equal to seven or eight times the val ue of its entire property, because its traffic '•'.epaitmcnt did not verify tho statement of tlio Alton rate clerk, that the six-cent. commod ity rate on oil had been properly filed with the Interstate Commerce Commission. There is no evidence, and none was introduced at the trial, that any shipper of oil from Chicago territory had been interfered with by the 18-cont rate r.or that, the failure of the Alton to file its six cent rate had resulted in any discrimination against any independent shipper,—we must take this on the word of the Commissioner of Corporations and of Judge Landis. Neither is it denied even by Mr. Smith that the "inde pendent" shipper of oil, whom he pictures a3 being driven out of business by tide discrim ination of the Alton, could have shipped all the oil he desired to ship from Whiting via Dolton over the lines of the Chicago & East ern Illinois to East St. Louis. In short, Presi dent Moffett's defence is still good, and wo predict will be so declared by the higher court. The Standard Oil Company has been charged with all manner of crimes and misdemeanors. Beginning with the famous Rice of Marietta, passing down to that apostle of popular liber ties. Henry Demurest Lloyd, with his Wealth Against tho Commonwealth, descending by easy stages to Miss Tarbell's offensive person alities. we finally reach the nether depths of unfair and baseless misrepresentation in the report of the Commissioner of Corporations. J he Standard has beoa cliar S ed witl * every foi ' m of commorcial Piracy and with most of (he cri P es on the corporation calendar. After lollg - vears of strenuous attack, under the ,eadershI P of the President of the United States ' the corporation is at last dragged to J ho bai ol i ustice to answer for its misdoings, Tlle who,e strength of the Government is di rected against it, and at last, we are told, the Standard Oil Company is to pay the penalty of its crimes, and it is finally convicted of hav ing failed to verify the statement of a rate clerk and is forthwith fined a prodigious sum, ,aw ' the theft of Property worth more than a shilling was punishable by death.
