PRICE PER GALLON
N buying paint, many people make the
mistake of simply considering first cost.
They think only of the price per gallon.
This results In the saleetibnof a low-pric
ed, short-lived, adulterated paint.
The right way to buy paint is to con
sider^—not primarily what it costs per
gallon —but spreading power, ease of
application and durability.
On account of pure lead, zinc, and linseed oil used, perfect form
ula, and fine grinding, B. P. S. Paint is fully 10 per cent, easier to
apply than coarse, adulterated paint. As cost of applying paint is about
twice as expensive as the paint itself, this 10 per cent, saving of your
painter's time is important.
We have the agency for the following paint at prices as follows:
B. P. S. Paint, per gallon $2.00
Lion Brand Paint, per gallon 2.00
Richardson's Paint, per gallon 1.25
Moore's Paint, per gallon 1.75
We also have a full line of all kinds of Oils, Brushes, Varnishes, etc.

WILSON MESSAGE
ONTHECURRENCY
President Urges Congress to
Pass New Law.
ASKS FOR ACTION AT ONCE
Chief Executive Tells Congress the
Need of Immediate Changes In
the Banking Laws.
Washington, June 23.—President
Wilson personally read the following
message to both houses of congress
in joint session:
"Mr. Speaker, Mr, President, Gen
tlemen of the Congress—It is under
the compulsion of what seems to me
a clear and imperative duty that I
have a second time this session
sought the privilege of addressing
you in person. I know, of course,
that the heated season of the year
upon us, that work in these cham
bers and in the committee rooms is
likely to become a burden as the sea
son lengthens and that every consid
eration of personal convenience and
personal comfort, perhaps, in the
cases of some of us, considerations
of personal health even, dictate an
early conclusion of the deliberations
of the session. But there are occasions
of public duty when these things
which touch us privately seem very
small, when the work to be done is
BO pressing and so fraught with big
consequence that we know that we
are not at liberty to weigh against
it any point of personal sacrifice.
We are now in the presence of such
an occasion. It is absolutely im
perative that we should give the busi
ness men of this country a banking
and currency system by means of
which they can make use of the free
dom of enterprise and of individual
Initiative which we are about to be
stow upon them.
Must Leave Tools of Action.
"We are about to set them free.
We must not leave them without the
tools of action when they are free.
We are about to set them free by re
moving the trammels of the pro
tcetive tariff. Ever since the Civil
war they have waited for this eman
cipation and for the free opportuni
ties it will bring with it. It has been
reserved for us to give it to them.
"Now both the tonic and discipline
of liberty and maturity are to ensue.
There will be some readjustments of
purpose and point of view. There will
follow a period of expansion and new
enterprise, freshly conceived. It is for
us to determine now whether it shall
be rapid and facile and of easy ac
complishment. This it cannot be un
less'the resourceful business men who
are to deal with the new circum
stances are to have at hand and ready
for use the instrumentalities and con
veniences of free enterprise which in
dependent men need when acting on
their own initiative.
"It is perfectly clear that it is our
duty to supply the new banking and
currency system the country needs
and that it will immediately need it
more than ever.
Need of Currency Changes.
"We must act now, at whatever
sacrifice to ourselves. It is a duty
which the circumstances forbid us to
postpone. I should be recreant to my
deepest convictions of public obliga
tions did I not press it upon you. with
solemn and urgent insistence.
"The principles upon which we
should act are also clear. We must
have a currency, not rigid as now,
but readily, elastically responsive to
sound credit, the expanding and con
tracting credits of every day transac
tions, the normal ebb and ffow of
personal and corporate dealings. Our
banking laws must mobilize reserves,
must not permit the concentration
anywhere in a few hands of the
monetary resuurces of the country
or their use for speculative purposes
in such volume as to hinder or im
pede or stand in the way of other
more legitimate, more fruitful uses.
And the control of the system of
banking and of issue which our new
laws are to set up must be public,
not private must be vested in the
government Itself, so that the banks
may be the instruments, not the
masters, of business and of individu
al enterprise and initiative.
Committees Ready to Report.
"The committees of the congress
to which legislation of this character
is referred have devoted careful and
dispassionate study to the means of
accomplishing these objects. They
have honored me by consulting me.
They are ready to suggest action. I
have come to you, as the head of the
government and the responsible
leader of the party in power, to urge
action now, while there is time to
serve the country deliberately and as
we should, in a clear air of common
counsel.
"I appeal to you with a deep con
viction of duty. I believe that you
share this conviction. I therefore ap
peal to you with confidence. I am
at your service without reserve to
play my part In any way you may
call upon me to play it In this great
enterprise of exigent reform which it
will dignify and distinguish us to per
form and discredit us to neglect"

only that every good citizen has that
is I hope to see nominated the man

elected, and who has the best chance
of being elected."

ROADS WILL OBEY DECISION
No Further Fight to Be Made
Against Supreme Court Ruling
-1 in Minnesota Rate Oases.
/ft a conference with the members
of I the state railroad and ware
house, commission at St. Paul, held
behind locked doors, representatives
of the railroads affected by the de
cision of the United States supreme
court in the famous Minnesota rate
casfe agreed to put into effect, as soon
as I possible, the state rates declared
valid by the supreme court
These include the 2-cent passenger
rati, the merchandise freight sched
ule! tested from Nov. 15, 1906, until
the* Sanborn decision July 1, 1911, and
thej commodity freight rate enacted
by jthe legislature but never put into
effect because of the injunction pro
ceedings.
Those attending the meeting were
President Carl R. Gray of the Great
Northern, Vice President J. N. Jack
son? of the Great Northern and Attor
neys Donnelly of the Northern Pacific,
Shejehan of the Chicago, St. Paul, Min
neapolis and Omaha and Clark of the
Minneapolis and St. Louis. The con
ference lasted for more than two
hoars and no outsiders were admitted.
There were other railroad men there,
but their names could not be learned,
as they evaded scrutiny by going out
of the side door.
No Further Contest.
By the terms of the agreement the
railroads will make no further contest
in the matter of establishing the state
ratbs. Refunds due to shippers for
overcharges during the period of liti
gation representing the difference be
tween the present rates and those
made by the state will be paid at
once.
This agreement means Minnesota
railroads will be called upon to dis
tribute approximately $3,000,000 within
the next six months. In 1909, after
the commodity rate had been enjoined,
the legislature passed a law requiring
the railroads to file schedules each
month showing all shipments made
under this law and the difference be
tween the state rate and those charged
in'each particular case.
These schedules have been kept up
toj date and the railroads will pay
o^er to the state commission the
amount represented, to be distributed
by the commission to the shippers en
titled to the rebates. Attorney Gen
eral Smith will be asked to formulate
•a" plan whereby this may be accom
plished. The commodity rebates rep
resent approximately one-half of the
total amount of claims.
