THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUX-TE LEGRAM, SUNDAY. APRIL 5, 190S.
PAGE SEVEN. SHIPPERS DESIRE FREIGHT SERVICE Members of Local Post T. P. A. Desirous That Difficul ties Be Adjusted. COMMITTEE IS AT WORK. HOPES TO BRING ABOUT A SET TLEMENT OF DIFFICULTIES BE TWEEN CITY AND T. H., I. & E. LINE. The committee on lnter urban freight service ap pointed by President Le bo, consists of the follow ing named gentlemen: II. C. Starr, chairman, Adam H. Bartel, W. S3. Clendenin, .1. Y. Poundstone, W. II. Quigg and M. L. Hasty. It la to be hoped that this committee can accomplish the desir ed result of getting the difficulties ex isting between the city and the i Tac tion company adjusted, so that immed iate freight service can be given to the suffering shippers of Richmond. This it Is believed, could be accom plished without jeopardizing the posi tion taken by the city in the matter, and without inconvenience to tho in terurban Interests. The membership of Post C. comprised as it Is of trav eling men, manufacturers and jobbers, all of which are large patrons or the interurban company, are very anxious that the difficulties be settled satis factorily and if it is necessary to await the decision of the court they hope that temporary arrangements can be made to resume the freight service. It would appear that it is possible that a great many people do not real ize the importance of interurban freight facilities. Steam road deliver ies are slow in comparison to Interur ban, und in Indiana the following cities can be reached outside of points between Richmond and Indianapolis by interurban at steam road rates, with next day deliveries: Edinburg, Columbus, Seymour, Flat Rock, Shel byvllle, Greensburg, Rushville, Con nersvllle, Wabash, Marlon, Summit ville, Falrmount, Alexandria, Ander son, Daleville, Chesterfield, Muncie, Kokomo, Arcadia, Tipton, Noblesville, Danville, Green Castle, Brazil, Craw fordsville, Martinsville, Bloomington, There are a number of other towns that it is impossible to reach by .Ueam roads, that can be reached by Interur ban at steam road rates, with next day delivery of goods. f If Richmond had freight service ov er the Dayton and Western, shippers would be able to reach all point be tween Richmond and Dayton, all points from Dayton to Toledo, from Dayton to Xeniar from Dayton to Springfield and from Dayton to Cin cinnati, with next day deliveries at steam road rates. In fact a little bit of Investigation discloses that inter urban freight facilities are a wonder ful advantage to shippers who make local shipments that require quick de liveries. Every member of Post C seems to have had a pleasant time at the smok er last Saturday evening and no re grets are heard that the Post decided to give a second smoker. The music given by the combined orchestra of the high school and Oar field was certainly fine and did great credit to 4he youig gentlemen, who so kindly lent their efforts on this occa sion, and Post C certainly appreciates what they did and a sincere vote of thanks will be extended to them at the next meeting. The luncheon as usual did credit to that committee and the speeches given by Mr. Freeman, Mr. Goidon and Mr. Huey were thoroughly ap preciated and well taken. We believe that these affairs more than ever demonstrated the advantage of every eligible person in our city becoming a member of the Travelers Protective association. The work that the T. P. A. has accomplished along various lines Is greatly to be com mended ajid of vast importance to the people in the community in which they are located. The protection that the insurance feature offers is a mat ter of consideration and the social side of T. P. A. life is another important feature that should not be overlooked. Any person, whose business is of such a nature as to permit them to be a member of this grand organization ought to become one. It is currently reported that a few of the young "old boys" became so interested last Saturday night that they almost forgot to go home, and some explanation to the other side of the house was necessary in ord?r to have it understood why T. P. A. smok ers were so long drawn out. Ross Bowman is the proud possess or of a pair of "burnsides." Far he it from us to in any way eriiisizo Ross efforts, as we think the courage he displays is to be commended, but we sincerely trust that time w ill unite his efforts in such a way as to not do tract anything from his good looks. A little "fertilizer" was suggested but that is merely a matter of opinion. Every member of Post C should con stitute himself a committee of one to try and get one new member before the 10th of this month. Horace C. Starr. D. L. Mather, T. C. Harrington and several other mem bers of Post C attended the republican convention at Indianapolis last week. J. M. Lewis was in Indianapolis Fri day, making a visit to his home. It is the desir? of the membership 'that a good delegation go to West Ba den. It is an excellent trip and one that you will thoroughly enjoy. Please make up your mind to accompany the post to the state convention and re port the fact to Marcus Hasty, secre tary. V. H. Q. Candidates for State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

John Sharp Williams, the Democratic House lead er of the filibusters, after declaring that when the Republicans were asked to pass measures "demanded every where," they cried. "After Election." He said it reminded him of the follow ing verse: When I asked my girl to marry me, she said: "Go to father." She knew that I knew her father was dead; She knew that I knew what a life he had led; She knew that I knew what she meant when she said: "Go to father." Chicago, 111., April 4. High prices for beefsteaks and pork chops have fol lowed the high prices for corn and hay which flooded the live stock market here and elsewhere through January j and February. The farmers received high prices for grain and low prices for cattle and hogs, and now the house holder is paying higher and higher prices for his meats. This, curiously enough, applies to hams cut from low priced hogs. The receipts of livestock now have become so light that the rise in fresh meat is explained. The cat tle which should have been kept back and fattened on good feed for April and May consumption came here in January. This condition probably will '.ontinue and prices will go higher yet before the movement of range cattle commences, or until present stocks of half fed steers in Iowa, Illinois and Kansas are fattened and sent here. , This spring there will be an advance in rents, milk and meats to keep city 1 people from East street, but the hen is doing nobly to provide and eggs are I down to the lowest mark known in many months.

Milwaukee Sentinel. Washington. April 4. The Presi dent's reeoiumenIa;ion in his recent special message that Congress at this session authorize the opening of post al savings banks is receiving the con sideration of the Republican leaders in the two houses. Early in the ses sion a decision was reached not to consider ajiy of the postal savings bank bills at this time, but the new appeal of the President, taken in con nection with other arguments in fav or of legislation which have been put forth, has induced the leaders to con sider whether, after all, it might not be wise to take up the subject. With in the last few days this argument in favor of postal savings banks has been advanced. It is now certain that if any financial legislation goes through Congress it will be represent ed by the Aldrich bill, which is con ceded to be a rich man's bilL enna acts fcatlyot prompt ly ontke bovv els, cleanses fhe system ojjectuaUy, assists otio m overcoming habitual Th Duelist's Discass.

Slioo Huckles. When Evander Perry Wall, king of the dudes for twelve years and really the most inconspicuous man about town, because he was homely of face and a very bad dresser, besides being rather short and blotchy, undertook to reintroduce shoe buckles he made his first big failure as the sartorial dic tator of our "jeuuesse doree." I think it was poor Al Claggett who said: "Why, Berry, you make a fool of your self. Shoe buckles go with long stock ings and knee pants. You can't wear 'em with socks and trousers. They In terfere with the set of the trousers around the feet. Then, of course, you've got to have a low cruartered shoe. Cut It out, Berry, cut It out." Wall Immediately quit. New York Press. WHY DON'T MEN LET GIRLS BE $50 HAT NOT A HOUSEHOLD EXPENSE Twelve Jurors Render a Verdict. With This Mew York Girl, Then Tried to Suicide. Chicago, April 4. Twelve jurors, in cluding three bachelors, have decided in Judge Newcomer's court that $50 hats are excluded from the necessary household expenses for which a hus band in moderate circumstances legal ly may be held liable when incurred by his wife without his approval. New York, April 4. "Why won't the men in New York let a girl be good when she wants to? No matter how hard she tries to avoid them they make life unbearable." said Miss Genevieve D. Jones of 441 Manhattan avenue, who attempted to commit suicide by drinking poison. But for the fact that . Miss Jones's brother-in-law, Richard Golding, a pa- j trolman attached to the Thirty-seventh street station was present when she swallowed the drug, It would have poved fatal. Wearlnsr Glnnaes. Wearing glasses need not be perma nent. If the first hint of derangement in the' eyes is heeded a short time spent under the direction of an oculist will safely tide over the difficulty. It is most restful to close the eyes fre quently for a few minutes. This rest does them great good. Particularly should this be done in trains and street cars. Many a headache and smarting pain may thus be saved. Traveling in public conveyances is exceedingly hard on the eyes, even for those that are strong and perfect The gaze should be confined to the interior of the car. Looking out of the windows to the rapidly changing scenery is a great strain. Philadelphia Ledger. "Hello, old man. Haven't seen any- 1 thing of you since you gat married. ; How- goes it?'' j "Thanks, fairly well. But marriage Is a costly job: If you only knew what the dressmakers charge!"
