RIGHT ON THE CORNER BUC POLL FAVORS RETURN OF RAH LINES QUESTIONNAIRE IS SENT OUT TO 13,424 EDITORS AT INSTIGATION OF RAILWAY EXECUTIVES. - New York.. June 4. Public opinion Is very strongly in favor of an early return of the railroads to their own era, as shown by the vote of nearly 6,000 editors of dally and weekly news papers throughout the country. A questionnaire sent to every editor In the country 13,424) brought replies from 5,922 or 44 per cent., and S3 per cent, of the editors reported their communi ties in favor of a resumption of private management. . The questionnaire was conducted on behalf of the Association of Railway Executives, and was completed before President "Wilson announced in his re cent message to congress that the gov ernment would relinquish control of the railways at the end of the year. ' "Editors were asked not to give their personal opinions, but o appraise the Nentiment in their communities. The four chief questions Were as follows: 1. Does public opinion in your judg ment seem to favor the return of rail roads to private ownership and oper ation as soon as this can properly be accomplished? " 2. If so, is this opinion in part based on the desire to see competition in service and facilities restored? 3. What is the present sentiment in your community on government owner ship and operation of railroads? 4. "What has been the feeling regard ing the proposal to extend the period or government operation for five years? On the first question, 'roes public opinion In your ' judgement seem to favorthe return of railroads to private ownership and operation as soon s this can properly be accomplished ?

When you feel its strengthening, invigorating effect, see how it brings color to the cheeks and how it improves the appetite, you will then appreciate its true tonic value. GROVE'S TASTELESS Chill TONIC is not a patent medicine. It is simply IRON and' QUININE sus pended in Syrup. So pleasant even children like it. The Quinine and Iron does not dissolve in the syrup and, therefore, does not make the syrup bitter. You do not taste the bitter Quinine and you do not are completely covered with syrup when swallowed. Your system needs Quinine to Purify the Blood and Iron to Enrich it.

Carlton and Igou had passed that body and gone to the'hous about ten days ago, when it was also passed by that body. But it had never reached the governor and there was no record of its having ever been re turned to the senate for enrollment During the lunch hour, however, it was found by house attaches. But to be safe, before the senate recessei for lunch it passed a new bill, and e-ct copy of the old one, and certi fied it immediately to the house. v Many wild rumors were afloat during iiie leiv nours mat tne r,n? t,t.
