I SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1910. I - RAILROAD RATES AND THE COST OF LIVING TX)S ANGELES. Cal.. Sept. 7.—.105. EL Call has been fighting the people's battles for nearly 20 years. As special counsel for the gov- he has recovered 44.000,000 acres of unearned railroad land fVants and never lost a case. As attorney for the orange and lemon growers he has fought the railroads to a standstill in the effort to get rail railroad rates. Mr. Call says that within the last six years railroad rates have in creased 40 per cent, and that this is one of the causes of the high cost of living. He says that while the interstate commerce commis ilon is engaged in granting occasional relief in special cases, the railroads are constantly making wholesale advances by means of a pooling arrangement in defiance of the Sherman law. Mr. Call declares that the rates have now gone so high as to effect a serious curtailment of agricultural production in the United States, and that this is reducing the balance of trade and draining this country of its gold. In his Judgment, this is hte leading explanation of tight money, and he says it will go on until it produces acute suf fering. Mr. Call says this could be done without injustice to the rail roads, since they have reduced thecost of operation immensely by in troducing heavier rails and equipment. One train crew handles four times as much per man as it did 10 years ago. Oddities in the News All Over the World The Rev. Peter Henry, pastor of the First Reformed church of Grove ville, N.

The fart that a used good piano is much better than a cheap new one is generally known by the public, at least the success of this big second hand sale would so indicate. Such bargine as we are now offer ing to pianoless homes are de cidedly the exception. It is not hard to find anywhere cheap pianos as low as |200, but when such makes as Kimball, Hobart M. Cable, Lud wig, Nelson, Decker, Kraulch & Bach, etc., are sold at one-half their regular price, even though they have been used a short while, it is a time to make use of your money, particularly when the pianos are guaranteed by the largest and most reliable music house in the west. We have no hesitancy in guaran teeing these pianos the same as we would one of our new pianos and the only reason we sell them so cheap Is that they are simply crowded out of our small temporary i quarters to make room for new i goods.

The unusual demand during the past few months for player pianos and grands has brought us more used pianos than ever before. Not having room for them at our tem porary quarters they were stored in our warehouse, and we never real ized that there were so many until the August inventory revealed the fact that there were 58. Knowing that many carload ship ments were now en route from the east, several having already been received, it was necessary to find homes for these used pianos at once. We are making it worth your Virile to take them away. Don't wait another day. Filers Music House, wholesale and retail, located during erection of new building at 416-420 Sprague avenue. ELECTRICAL CURRENTS MIGHT GROW HERE ROCHESTER, N. V., Sept. 7—Given a farm of 3,878.78 acres what would you do with it? Wheat? Corn? Yes, but this farm is 160 miles lone; and only 200 feet wide, with a dozen different kinds of soil. You can't erect any buildings on it. High tension cables carrying 60,000 volts of electricity pass over it. It is owned by a power company. Expert farmers and horticul turists are trying to devise a plan to make the land pay divi dends. The company had to buy the land to get the right of way. The officers thought they would split the land up into 80 separate farms, but there is the difficulty of transportatiug labor and mov ing the crops. Small fruits might do, but the branches of the trees would overhang neighboring farms, and trouble might result. Every body likes to sue a corporation. Some of the land is adapted to growing apples, some of It to wheat, some to corn, but there isn't enough of any one kind of soil to make one crop worth while. If the land can he made to produce, the company figures It would be worth $800,000. aessed in the world —$B.36—accord- ing to a report she made to the po lice last night.

TrafOMESOßrffl l&Mtad Bmisit Caps HAT'S a "guy"? There's the "guy rope," which U really a "guido rope," but :he "perfect guy" isn't directly re lated with the nautical term, i old as that term | is and many as are the chances it has had to sneak into the language with a new meaning. "Guy" is not only a word with a history—most words are that —but it is furthermore a word OF history. For the story of how it got Into the language Is the story of one of the most talked of episodes in the an nals of merry England. The original "guy" was really "guido," which is a proper noun, but which harks back to the common noun meaning "guide." He wasn't altogether a "wise guy." Perhaps we might speak of him as the "fall guy," for, having packed the base ment of the house of parliament with sundry barrels of gunpowder with a view to blowing parliament to smithereens, he was so careless as to allow himself to be arrested. Thre was called the "Gunpowder Plot." Guy and several of his fellow conspirators were hanged, and, ac cording to the pleasant custom of the day, were drawn and quartered and hung up to dry by piecemeal in various public places. Every since then, on the fifth of November of eaoh year the boys of old England have celebrated "Guy Fawkes day" by burning Guy Fawkes in effigy. Bummer Prices.
