SPOKANE, Jan. 21.—Railway passenger rates throughout this state may be cut to 2 A4 cents a mile, says the Chronicle, unless the Great Northern either retires its mileage books or changes their form, and this the railroad refuses to do. i The contest, which will probably be tried in the courts, has arisen over a rule which the commission has promulgated, and which the Great Northern refuses to obey. The order in question requires railway companies in dealing with mileage books, to instruct their I conductors to pull on'y such num ber of coupons as would be equiva lent at 3 cents to the regular fare. One instance is that the exact ,distance between Seattle and Olym ,pia is 73 miles, which would cost : passengers, at 3 cents a mile, just $2.19. The railroads, to meet j competition, charge only $1.80 a I trip. When, however, a man is I traveling on mileage, the conductor j pul's 73 miles. The commission I rules that he must only pull 60 mules, in order to g've the man owning the mileage the benefit of the rate of 2^è cents a mile, at which rate he has paid for his mileage book. The railroads say that if the rule of the commission is enforced by the courts they will retire their mileage books. Commissioner J. C. Lawrence has stated that the retire ment of mileage books will probably be followed by the issuance of an order by the commission for a hear ing on the subject of reducing pas senger rates to 2 % cents a mile. The railroads can, if they will, avoid the controversy by issuing a mileage book like that recently put out by the O. R. & N., where the mileage coupons are designated in cents, and the conductors are re quired to pull only the regular fare between stations, instead of cou pons representing the actual mile age. ___ TRACK TEAM GET BUSY LEWISTON HIGH SCHOOL HAS STRONG MATERIAL FOR RUN NING TEAM, AND PROFIT BY EARLY TRAINING The Lewiston High school track team has commenced the season's practice, which is several weeks earlier than ever before and leads the Northwest record for early-sea son 'work.

The Fighting Watch For It Chance By ROBERT W. CHAMBERS ILLIISTRATFD BY BERGER, RYDER AND JONES ? Has a man a fighting chance to overcome an inherited appetite for strong drink and to win a woman who, while admitting she loves him, deliberately chooses to sell herself for wealth and station I N this story the gifted author conducts the reader into the inner circle of New York society showing him the fast set in their gid dy rounds of pleasure or their fierce combats for business supremacy. As he reads he will diecover that happiness dwells in the human breast as much in the gloomy grandure of a Fifth avenue mansion as in the cottage of the poor. So he finds his supreme interest and sympathy fixed upon the unhappy couple—old New Yorkers both of them— whose friends declare it would be the wildest folly for them to marry because of heredi tary tendencies on both sides. Because the interest in this love affair and the author's brilliant satire on New York society have made "The Fighting Chance " the most eager ly sought and the most widely talked of novel of the year, we have secured the serial rights and will print it in The Evening Teller Subscribe now and take advantage of the Watch low price of $3.00 per year.
