PAPERS DEALING "WITH THE

WELCOMED BY BUSHNELL
SOME GOOD ADVICE GIVEN THE
MUNICIPAL RULERS BY OHIO'S
FOR HIS HONOR OF MINNEAPOLIS.
Place on the Committee on Organ
ization Assigned to the Dele
gation From Minnesota.
COLUMBUS, 0., Sept. 28.— The first
annual conference of the mayors and
councilmen of the United States,
<■ Canada and Mexico was called to or
der at 11 o'clock this morning by May
or Black, of this city, with 160 regular
accredited delegates. The mayor's
opening remarks were brief, and he
closed by introducing Gov. Bushnell,
who said the mayors' congress would
inaugurate another epoch. While mu
nicipal officials for centuries had been
dealing with "municipal problems," it
had been proved that even long-tilled
fields could, under modern methods
and careful husbandry, be made to
produce more bountiful harvests. The
close of the century seems to find us
ln a condition which presents as many
things to be done in our cities and
towns as there was at the time of the
foundation of the centers of the popu
lation. No city is now so rich in ex
cellent results but that there is room
for mdre wealth in that way.
At the close of the governor's wel
come, Mayor Black presented Mayor
Collier, of Atlanta, Ga., who responded
for the visitors in a glowing speech
of sentiments of patriotism, presenting
the importance of good municipal gov
ernment with great force and elo
Mayor Black was made chairman of
the convention, and "ditor Gordon,
secretary, to serve only during the ses
sions of the convention prior to the
formation of a permanent organiza
tion on the closing day. At noon the
convention adjourned until 2 p. m.
Mayor MacVeigh, of Dcs Moines, then
read a paper entitled "Street Lighting;
by Contract. Municipal Control or Mu
nicipal Ownership; Which?" He said
when he undertook to investigate the
question of municipal ownership he
was about as well informed upon tho
subject as was the farmer's wife who
asked her husband to bring home some
electric plants that they might, by
raising their own lights, save kerosene.
The local companies made a vigorous
campaign to defeat the proposition
authorizing municipal ownership of a
plant, money and political influence
being freely used, but the vote was fa
vorable by nearly three to one. The
plant is not yet built, owing to suits j
threatened by "prominent" taxpayers j
under the direction and advice of the
attorneys of the local companies.
It was nearly 3 o'clock when Chair
man Black called the meeting to order
this afternoon. Chairman Black an
nounced the following as the commit
tee to formulate a plan of permanent
Mayors MeViear, of Dcs Moines, Io.;
Pratt, of Minneapolis, Minn.; Collier,
of Atlanta, Ga.; Hastings, of Niagara

than Wednesday night. It is looked
upon as fairly representative of the
attendance, geographically and other
wise, and the delegates expect a great
deal from it in the way of practical

cupied forty minutes of the time of
the convention in the reading of a pa
per on "Telegraphic Systems for the

acter. A paper by William Brophy,
chief electrician of the city of Boston,
on "Modern Construction and Mainte
nance of Electric Wires and Their Su
pervision by Municipalities," was read.
There was no discussion of either pa
per, and at 4 o'clock the convention
> adjourned until 8 p. m.
Chairman Black, in his opening re
marks at tonight's session, made refer
ence to the importance of street light
ing in cities, and called attention to the
significance and influence of the Na
~"** tional Street Lightning association now
in session here. In closing, he intro
duced Henry Hopkins, of New Haven,
Conn., who is secretary of the asso
ciation. He read a paper on "The
Proper Lighting of City Streets," tha
chief point of which was an analysis
of the reasons why the cost of public
lighting is increasing, while the cost
per light is decreasing. These he gave
as the expansion of the populated area
of cities, the' fact that light decreases
s crime, the application of light to rapdi
street transit, the demand for improved
service in old localities and the pur
suit of mercantile and professional du
ties at night,

"IRRIGATORS" IN CONGRESS.
Sixth National Meeting In Progress
LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 28.— Delegates
to the National Irrigation congress,
which began its sixth annual session
* tcday, made a record for industry in
disposing of work on hand and setting
a pace for more elaborate proceedings
to follow. The initial session this aft
ernoon was marked by an overflow of
enthusiasm on the part of the partici
pants and visitors. Addresses by such
men as Judge Emery, of Kansas; K.
R. Moses, of the same state, and Assist
-9 ant Land Commissioner Best, of Wash
ington, D. C, did not fail to awaken
interest in movements which they
championed, and sentiments expressed
were applauded and re-echoed by lecal
speakers whose interest in irrigation
projects is reaching the point entertain
ed by districts where the enterprise is
no longer in its infancy. Thus far
there has been little said concerning
new officers of the congress. Secretary
Heintz is understood to be a candidate
for re-election, and has strong support.
Two aspirants for the next place of
meeting have appeared in the cities of
Atlanta. Ga.. and Guthrie, Okla. At
i » lanta appears to be generally favored.

the national congress was called at
11 o'clock. The meeting was largely
for the purpose of outlining the work
of the convention, but it was decided
to-leave the matter of programme and
papers to a committee composed of the
president and secretary of the congress.
It was decided that the president of
the congress elected at Phoenix last
year, C. B. Booth, of California, act
as president of the present congress
until his successor could be elected, and
that he appoint the necessary secretar
ies and assistants. There was no par
ticular contest, but the action was con
sidered a victory for the far West.
It was 2 p. m. when President Booth
called the congress to order in Assem
bly hall of the University of Nebraska.
On the platform, besides the officers of
the congress, were Gov. Holcomb,
Mayor Graham and Chancellor Mac-
Lean, of the university. Rev. J. G. Mail
ley offered prayer. Chairman of the
National Committee Moses announced
the secretaries, and Secretary Heintz
read the call for the meeting of the
congress. President Booth introduced
Gov. Holcomb, who welcomed delegates
in an address of some length. Chancel
lor Mac Lean seconded, on behalf of the
educational interests of the state, the
wtlcome of the governor. Judge
Emery, of Kansas, responded to an ad
dress of welcome on behalf of the con
The question of the possibility of
locating and tracing underground
streams of water was the Subject of
an extended and carefully prepared pa
per by Dr. J. G. Sutton, of Rushsyl
vania, O. Dr. Sutton at the outset ad
mitted that his subject was an unpopu
lar one, inasmuch as it invaded a field
heretofore held by waterwitches, or
those claiming to be endowed with di
vine power aided by a forked stick. His
insistence was, however, that, by fol
lowing the ordinary rules of scientific
research, the location of subsurface
water was possible, having no connec
tion with superstition and other rub
bish surrounding the subject.
Dr. Sutton's paper was the last of
the afternoon, and a business session
followed, but was limited to the ap
pointment of committees on permanent
organization and resolutions. Califor
nia delegates head the list on the lat
ter, but It is claimed to have no signi
ficance, inasmuch as the committee will
meet and select Its own chairman. The
congress will reassemble tomorrow
morning at 9:30. Tonight the members
of the congress were tendered an in
formal reception at the capitol build
ing by Gov. Holcomb, oth«r state offi
cers and Lincoln citizens.
THE OLD WAY
Of Treating,- Dyspepsia and Indiees
tion by Dieting- a Bnrbnroais and
We say the old way. but really it is
a very common one at present time
and many dyspeptics and physicians
as well consider the first step to take
in attempting to cure indigestion is to
diet, either by selecting certain foods
and rejecting others or to greatly di
minish the quantity usually taken, in
other words the starvation plan is by
many supposed to be the first essen
The almost certain failure of the
starvation cure for dyspepsia has been
proven time and again, but still the
moment Dyspepsia makes its appear
ance a course of dieting Is at one
All this is radically wrong. It is
foolish and unscientific to recommend
dieting or starvation to a man suffer
ing from Dyspepsia, because Indiges
tion itself starves every organ and ev
ery nerve and every fibre in the body.
What the Dyspeptic wants is abund
ant nutrition, which means plenty of
good, wholesome, well-cooked food and
something to assist the weak stomach
to digest it. This is exactly the pur
pose for which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets are adapted and this is the method
by which they cure the worst cases of
Dyspepsia, in other words the patient
eats plenty of wholesome food and
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets digest it
for him. In this way the system i.~
nourished and the overworked stomach
rested, because the tablets will digest
the food whether the stomach works or
not. One of these tablets will digest
3,000 grains of meat or eggs.

art's Dyspepsia Tablets is the purest
and safest remedy sold for stomach
troubles and every trial makes one
more friend for this excellent prepara
tion. Sold at 50 cts. for full sized pack

Affairs of the Borough of Brooklyn
in Bad Shape.
NEW YORK, Sept. 28.— The examina
tion of the financial departments of the
various municipalities, which will be
consolidated into the Greater New
York, has revealed a shortage of from
$1,600,000 to $2,000,000 in Brooklyn. Un
less special legislation is obtained at
Albany to prevent It, this shortage will
be saddled upon the taxpayers of the
greater city. Under a clause of the
charter creating the Greater New York
the comptroller of the present city of
New York was lequirtd to examine and
pass upon the accounts of the financial
officers of the cities and towns that
are included in the different boroughs.
Two months ago, Comptroller Fitch ap
pointed a number of expert accountants ,
to do this work. The accountants se
lected to go through the books of
Brooklyn found matters in bad shape.
One of the first things encountered was
a discrepancy of $1,500,000 between the
books of the comptroller and those of
the registrar of arrears of taxes. This
was found to represent the unpaid
taxes of Brooklyn, which had been al
lowed to accumulate year after year,
until the amount due the city is esti
mated at from 51.500,000 to $2,000,000.
The largest par.t of this amount is said
to be for personal taxes, and while it
is included among the assets of the city
of Brooklyn, it is non-callectible.

"WHAT A MINNEAPOLIS MAN SAYS.
Six New Elevators Going; Up on tlie
Great Northern in Washington-
Mr. Ma<le Promoted.
The passenger men from St. Paul
who returned yesterday from Chicago
after having taken part in the adop
tion of the Sabastian form of the inter
changeable milage ticket, which goes
into effect Nov. 1, are not inclined to
discuss the matter at any great length.
The gossip is that the Sebastian form
was not adopted because it was best,
but because it was to be depended up
on to show how entirely unsatisfactory
this interchangeable business is when
it applies on all roads in the territory.
The strong lines naturally did not
want the new plan. They each had a
list of roads upon which their 1,000 and
2,000 mile books were good. The job
bers did not force the action. either. In
fact some of the railroaders insisted
that the big merchants would kick just
as it turns out they have. The pres
sure came from within and was put
in motion by the weak lines, and now
that the books are to go in the same
ccmplaint is made by the jobbers.
While it is early to predict at this time,
it will probably be true after a fair
trial that the strong lines can go back
to their 1,000 and 2,000 mile books,
which in fact they will still leave on
sale along side of the new form.
Although the determination to put
the new book in Nov. l.was reached
only a few days ago, the sentiment
is already strongly against the innova
tion, coming chiefly from the North
western wholesalers. A Minneapolis
jobber said yesterday:
"With the mileage in use, a deposit
is put up with the road from which
transportation has been taken out.
Many a small house has been unable
to keep a man in the field because a
been obliged to get over territory
which could only be reached through,
say, ten different times. Two much j
money was tied up in the purchase of
mileage under such conditions and the
result was that the smail outside deal
ers confined their attempts to secure
trade to their own localities or branch,
ed out very gingerly when they did any
"Now it will be different with the
interchangeable mileage. They will be
able to get over the most of the de
sirable territory on the investment of
one mileage ticket at a time, say $50
"Their activity will invade our in
terests at every hand. Small houses
in the smaller towns will put at least
one agent ou'. The manufacturers of
specialties, too, will be heard from.
-Every small maker of any one article
will now consider keeping a man on
"In a way all this will be to the
benefit of Chicago perhaps more than
to any other city. She has myriads of
small manufactories. Heretofore they
have kept out of the territory. Now
they will fairly swarm over the route
our agents follow. Of course the new
arrangement will be to the benefit and
convenience of all the traveling pub
lic, the big concerns included, but the
chief harvest will come to the small
foreign dealers who has heretofore
been excluded by the capital required
to keep a solicitor busy."
The Wisconsin Central people have
given notice that they will hold off
their contemplated action in regard to
their own form of mileage books until
the new form can be fairly tested.
Tyro Decisions hy the Interstate
WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.— The inter
state commerce commission today an
nounced its decision of two long and
short-haul cases in an opinion by Com
missioner Knapp, in the case of Fewell
against the Alabama & Vicksburg rail
way and others, and in the matter of
coal rates charged by the Alabama £.
Vicksburg and Alabama Great Couth- |
crn railway companies. The cases in
volved the transportation of coal from
Corona, Birmingham and Blocton, Ala.,
to local points in Mississippi on tht
Alabama ft Vicksburg railway at high
i er rates than were charged for longer I
distances over the same line to Jack
son and Vicksburg, Miss.
The various carriers from Alabama
mines to Jackson agreed upon the
rate to that place, which rate was less
for each line than was charged on coal
to shorter distance points over the
same line in the same direction. This,
the opinion holds, violates the fourth
section of the interstate commerce act.
Coal from Alabama mines to Vicks
burg must go by railroad. The compe
tition of such coal in Vicksburg is with
coal brought over long distances down
the Ohio and Mississippi rivers from
the Pittsburg. Pa., district. This com
petition was held not to be rail and
water competition for transportation
from the same locality, but the compe
tition of mines or markets for supply
ing coal to Vicksburg, the force and
effect of which is determined by com
mercial considerations peculiar to the
business of shippers, and wholly dis
connected from the circumstances and
conditions under which transportation
The commission further rules that the
long and short-haul clause of the iaw
applies only when the traffic Is "over
the same line," and "in the same direc
tion, and to "transportation under sub
stantially similar circumstances and
conditions," and "the shorter" must
be included within "the longer" dis
tance; and that, notwithstanding these
limitations, any injustice or hardship
which may result to carriers from com
pliance with the long and short-haul
rule is removable by the commission
upon application by such carriers un
der the procedure authorized by the
proviso to the fourth section.
ROADS STILL OUT.
Arguments of the "Western Associa
tion Lines Without Avail.
CHICAGO, Sept. 28.— The meeting of
all the Western roads, called for the
purpose of considering the rate situa
tion, was held today at the office of
Chairman Caldwell, of the Western
Passenger association. The Southern
Pacific, the Great Northern and the
Northern Pacific were not represented
at the meeting, and this threw a frost
at the outset on any attempt to stiffen
up the conditions in the transcontinen
tal passenger traffic. A resolution was
offered providing that, effective Oct.
1, all of the roads should cease the pay
ment of commissions in the territoi'y
east of the Missouri river, and, after
Oct. 1, on transcontinental traffic. It
was debated somewhat and then went
over until tomorrow.- The meeting
then resolved itself into another effort
to get the Great Western and the Wis
consin Central into the association.
Both roads were represented at the
meeting, but at the close of the meet
ing both declared that they would
not become members of the Western
Passenger association^ They were
plied with arguments, ;but they were
without effect. The meeting will be
continued tomorrow".* '>"

In the line of passenger demoralization.
The lines, and the stronger lines fought
the hardest, all waited ...the Twin City
delegation, and as a result all sorts
of rates were made, and it is charged
that all sorts of excessive commissions
were paid to get the business.
The authorized rate was a fare and
a third for the round trip, but although
this was slashed, it was at first thought
that yesterday would end the trouble,
being the last day named for the rate,
but several of the roads have announc
ed that the rate still goes, and passen
gers to the Windy City yesterday, who
meant to return, could do so just as
cheaply as their next door neighbors
could make the one way trip. The
statement was made late yesterday aft

Omaha's Action Against C. W.
A stipulation of dismissal was filed
yesterday in the United States circuit
court of appeals In the case of the Chi
cago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha
Railroad company against Charles
Fisher, formerly paymaster of the cor
poration. The complaint set forth that
Mr. Fisher was appointed paymaster
of the Omaha in August, 1889, and
alleged that out of the large sums of
money entrusted to him for disburse
ment from time to time, on account of
the company, defendant had retained
In his answer, Mr. Fishor affirmed
that from the date of his appointment
as paymaster to the time of his sum
mary dismissal, he disbursed for the
company and on its account, a total of
about $13,000,000; that his salary was
$150 per month; that while the vouchers
returned by him to., the company
amounted in the aggregate to a sum
loss than the amount so received, all
of the moneys were paid out for and on
account of the company, and that at
the time of his dismissal he had re
ceived for himself not more than $30
above his salary of $150 a month. The
stipulation ends the suit to recover the
amount of the alleged deficit.

Sebastian Ticket Form May Be Re
placed if Unsatisfactory.
CHICAGO, Sept. 28.— The net earn
ings of the Atchison system of August
were $921,281, an increase of $168,325
over the same month of last year. For
the two months of the fiscal year to
Aug. 31, the net earnings have been
$1,386,038, an increase of $80,185. The
total income from operation for the
two months shows an increase of $152,
The adoption of the Sebastian ticket
by the Western roads for the inter
changeable mileage ticket traffic is not
final, and should that ticket prove un
satisfactory after a short trial, some
thing else will be tried. The majority
of the roads, however, are of the opin
ion that the ticket will answer the pur
pose admirably. There is no question
but that the ticket will reduce scalp
ing to the minimum, as there is nothing
which the scalpers can get hold of to
place on the market. If the ticket
proves as satisfactory as it is expected
that it will, an effort will be made to
have all the large roads in the country
join the bureau, which issues the tick
ets and then there will be but one form
of interchangeable mileage ticket on
SIX NEW ELEVATORS.
Great Northern Erecting Then* o:i
the Line in Washington.
The six new wheat warehousts, which
the Great Northern road is building in
the state of Washington, will increase
the storage capacity along that line by
something like 800,000 bushels. In view
of the annually increasing wheat crop
in Washington, and the fact that the
presence of these mamoth warehouses
re-duce the tendency to a car shortage,
it was decided to build half a dozen of
them, and work was recently begun on
them at Edwall, Moscow, Coal Creek,
Lamona, Harrington and Wenatchee.
They are to be 60x160 feet, and it is
expected will be completed in time for
the reception of this year's crop, which

ADDING TO ITS EQUIPMENT.
Milwaukee Making Some Important
Additions This Full.
The Milwaukee road is making some
large and important additions to its
equipment this fall. The shops at Mil
waukee have already turned out and
put in service 200 coal cars, 250 palace
stock cars ar.d 100 large carriage and
furniture cars. They are now engaged
in building 1,000 standard box cars,
turning them out at the rate of ten a
day. These are each of 60,000 pounds
capacity and are being used as fast as
delivered to handle the grain crop.
The Milwaukee has also bought
twenty new and very heavy locomo
tives. Two of these will be used in the
passenger service between Chicago and
Milwaukee, wh-re the schedule time Le
tween the city limits calls for a speed
of 56.4 miles per hour. The other eigh
teen engines will be used in hauling
heavy freight trains.
Lake Rates Advance.
News was forwarded to St. Paul yesterday
that the lake lines at Buffalo had decided
upon an advance of 2ft cents per 100 pounds
on the various grain products shipped from
Chicago and Duluth to Eastern points. This
action has been imminent for some time, and
it is supposed that It was taken to corre
spond with a slightly smaller advance made
recently In the all-rail rate between the points
named. The advance goes into effect Oct. 15,
by which time it is certain that business
will be fairly brisk.
