Freight Rates Reduced.
How shippers of all classes and prob
ably the ultimate consumer will benefit
from the decision of the railroad com
mission in the Tittemore case appears
in a partial analysis of the new rates.
The saving on a single shipment under
the new tariffs will be comparatively
small, but in the aggregate on a year’s
business the reduction will mean a sub
stantial item to many interests.
Edgerton is one of the large tobacco
shipping centers, and many small con
signments are sent to factories in Mil
waukee and other parts of the state.
While the reduction in freight might
not reach the man who smoked the
cigar, the maker will profit. If he
buys a case of tobacco in Edgerton,
which weighs, with the box, about 400
pounds, until the new rate goes into
effect he will pay $1.46 freight to Mil
waukee. After that the freight will
be sl.ll. Boots and shoes shipped
from Milwaukee to Edgerton, which is
is a distance of 71 miles, will show the
same reduction. In the case of the
small dealer in fruits, for instance, who
makes a small profit and takes chances
on losses, this item will be welcome.
Thousands of pounds of fruits are
shipped daily from Milwaukee to in
terior points.

Passing of Edward Nelson.
Edward Nelson, “ Huck, ” who
has been a familiar character about
this community for a number of years,
succumbed to an attack of pneumonia
at his rooms in the Schmeling block
Sunday night. He was born in the
town of Albion in 1851 and the greater
part of his life he had been employed
upon farms in Fulton and Porter, for
many years working on the Orson Cox
and John Bates farms. He was cared
for during his sickness by Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Schmeling in their home, having
been employed by him at farm labor
during the past year. The funeral was
privately conducted at the Tellefson
Bros, undertaking rooms and burial
took place in Fassett cemetery.
Electrify to Coast.
With 400 miles of its Pacific exten
sion now operating electrically, the
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul rail
road announced, through A. C. Good
now, assistant to the president, that
the line will extend its electrification to
the coast.
The railroad now has 416 miles—from
Harlowtown to East Portal under
electrification, and Mr. Goodnow said
the success of the new motive power
has been so phenomenal that there will
be no further delay in extending the
electrification through the Cascade
mountains and to the coast.
It is declared that the ease with
which the freight trains are handled
over steep grades makes it imperative
to proceed with the electrification. One
motor does the work of three or four
steam engines on the steepest grades,
at a speed of fifteen miles an hour.
For Sale Cheap— One electric wash
ing machine in first class condition.
