It is stated that the law forbids any

Cowboys have a language of their
own which no "tenderfoot" may at

a"horse wrangler," and a horse

well is to "rag proper." When a ow
boy goes out on the prairie he "hits
the flats." Whiskey is "family dis

His hat is a "cady," his whip a

the railroads of the eounlry are
greatly alarmed over recent railway
legislation. They seem to think the
people are at last aroused and Intend
haying th^ ^rotci'timi of law against
railway extortiou anA injustice in the
future. Hoping to make the people
sorry for at tempt nig any railway
legislation at all, the various roads
are combining to make the inter-state
commerce law unpopular and mo
noply-favored men and papers and too
many people who have beeu deceived
by them are crying
sutlers upon so-called
in oehatr csnJ-eo-yt
indemnity lands and will do all in
his power to establish the right of
the settlers to the title to the lands
they occupy. It he succeeds those
interested will certainly begin to
think "nothing is too good for Rey
repealed" and "business interests are
ruined" etc. etc. So far only the
railroads have been heard from. They
have placed arbitrary, unexpected
and unwarranted constructions upon
the law and have enforced them to
the utmost extent. The roads have
also made many arbitrary rules and
rates and in many instances have de
scended to petty nieaunesses in the
transaction of their business and
have laid everything upon the broad
shoulders of the inter-state commerce
law. In this way they succeeded
temporary public ,-eiiti-
ment against the law. Now,however,
we believe there is to be a change.
The national S»oard of railway com
missioners have organised and begun
work. Their powers are ample and
we expect soon to see many of the
abuses, which have sprung up since
April 1st aud which are alleged to be
due to the
corrected. The commissioners have
written au "open letter" which is full
of promise and which has about it
the rigut kind of ring. We quote as
"Congress has not taken the man
agement of the railroads out of the
hands of the railroad companies. It
has simply established certain gener
al principles under which iliter-state
commerce must be conducted. It has
enacted that .all charges tor inter
state transportation shall l»e reason
ale aud just has prohibited all man
ner of unjust discriminations has
forbidden all undue and unreasonable
preference and advantages has re
for the interchange of traffic and
has prohibited the pooling of freights.
That, in substance, is the lnter-state
"There is nothing novel in these
provisions. They simply bring back
the business of the common carriers
to the well settled principles of the
common law, yet no one can deny
that there was urgent need of their
statutory formulation. Alleged diffi
culties in putting them in operation
ouly disclose examples of the extent
to which they have beeu violated in
"The language and the tenor of the
act wholly fail to justify railroad
managers, who refuse to accept re
sponsibilities, decline to offer rates,
neglect to announce conditions of
traffic, embarrass the customary in
terchange of business and impose
stagnation upon trade. It is still
more unjustifiable for railroad coni
panies to make use or rac &
clauses of the law, ignoring Its modi
fying and enlarging words and form
ulas, in order ,to impose additional
burdens upon localities, trades, pro
fessions, manufacturers, consumers,
classes of travelers or employes,
straining and repressing every con
struction in favor of the corporation
treasury, and quoting the new law as
their authority for all manlier of petty
exactions. The powers of tli'e com

with such conduct, the existence of

Under the new Inter-State com
menv law Homethlnjr may *be ex
pected from competition, a means of
relief which was denied Us under the
old pooling system, now forbidden.
At present we are not reaping much
benefit from this possibility and pro
bability, thought there are indications
of fierce competition being inaugura
ted sooner or later. We have not to
be told that the average railroad
management is an obstreperous cou
"cern, and that it hatrahvays required
considerable ingenuity to make all
the management anything approach
ing a happy family. The pooling
system—which would haye been bet
ter named if it had been called the
fleecing system—kept the vast ma
jority of the roads marching breast to
breast in the game of plunder. The
new law sets every tub on its own
bottom, and when the railroad people
get over their white-heat anger over
the law and against the public that
so steadi v demanded the enactment
o some kind of a law, they will fall
out among them** Ives and then the
cutting of rates will begin in earnest
We have no idea that a concert of
action among the managers will be
of any considerable duration. The
long haul rates will not be sustained
and as they come down, of course the
short-haul rates must come down al
so. We believe that even the present
law, imperfect as it may be, will yet
bring us much relief, though it may
not be thoroughly enforced—Western
There is trouble tire wing among
the railroads already, under the new
law. lVace cannot long continue

of a tight all along the line, and some
of the roads are get! ing rid of their
conservative lTi ia!s and replacing
them with more aggressive men, that
they may deai harder blows. Freights
are not going i main way up in
the skies. It would not be natural.
Every road has want it can earn, and
canliot pool itseaii.ii ys with those of
some other road. Kveiy road, there
fore, will want all it can get4 and if it
can secure an advantage it would be
a curious exhibition for it to decline
to take it. We may expect a general
cutting of rates. But what we want
to do is to enforce a faithful execution
of the law which can be secured only
by a steady agitation of the subject
and thorough organization of the peopl
The law contains provisions that are
clea rly in the interests of the people
and we must compel the commission
to gfve us the benefit of these pro
visions. It is already announced that
some roads are violating the law in
the matter of passes. Let auy one
who knows of such violation report it
to the commission, with the evidence
sustaining it. The commission can
not act without information. The
law connot enforce itself. In the
first place the commission must be in
formed of acts of violation, and as a
rule this information mustcome from
the people. One great merit of this

time and postage to put the offending

us should be willing to take enough
interest in the law to give any inform
ation of a violation of its provisions
which we may possess. Keeping our
eyes open for offences against the law
let us be reasonably patient and al
ways firm, remembering that the
matter is a complicated one, and that
it will require time for the commission
to get it fully iu hand—Western

The May number* of Babyhood over
flows with good things for young
mothers. The opening article on "The
Diet of Nursing mothers," by Edward
L. Patridge, M. D., Obstetic Surgeon
to the New York Maternity Hospital,
is peculiarly interesting, describing
how milk is produced and how the
flow of milk is stimulated, showing
the advantage of lactation to the
mother, dispelling some groundless
objections to certain articles of food,
and emphasizing the value of others
to both mother and child. Dr. W. B.
Canfield discusses "The Development
ot Speech in Infants," from the first
utterances till the formation of the
child's vocabulary, with its defects
and peculiarities. There are many
interesting hints to be found iu
"What Not to Name the Baby." Dr.
Yale treats a much debated question
in-'Eight Months ana other Prema
ture Children," showing how prema
turely-born children may often be
saved by care and attention. In the
"N ursery Observations" are rehearsed
the peculiarities of some babies, and
in "Nursery Problems" much valu
able advice is given to mothers upon
such subject as "Sore Nipples,"
"Cleft Palate," "Suppurating Ear,"
"Decaying Teeth, 'Weak Limbs,' etc.

There is a cat doctor who runs a drug
store in Washington who, it is said, is do
ing the most thriving practice of any alle
viator of the ills of the feline and canine
races of any man in his profession in the
whole country. This physician has the
highest class of callers of any professional
man in the city, as only the most aristo
n^itic can afford to have an expert wait
upon tlieir pets. At times as many as
three or four carriages, owned by the most
relined and wealthy people at the national
capital, are drawn up in front of the drug
store and office, and his business is so
large that customers with tlieir patients
have to wait their turns, like men in bar
ber shops, It is seldom that a man enters
the drug store or oflice for the purpose of
receiving a professional call from the doc
tor. They are almost invariably women.
The doctor was philosophizing the other
day to some gentlemen on the general ails
of cats and dogs, during which he stated
that more trouble came from a lack of
fresh air and exercise than anything else.
He especially deprecated the fact that
these household pets were guarded so
closely in the house, and were not allowed
to romp arouud like children.
"I could name," he said, "families in
this city that guard as closely their pet
cats and dogs as they do their children.
Large numiiers of them have cribs and
cradles and lounges made for their pets
and cushioned in the most comfortable
manner possible. At one place visited re
cently I found a fine old Maltese reclining
on a pillow of down. When I asked for
it for the purpose of making an examina
tion the lady of the house lifted it as care
fully as if it -were a tiny baby. She had
delicate spoons and forceps and a doche to
inject medicine into the poor thing's ears.
There was a swab of silk and cotton to
cleanse its throat, as it had had something
like diphtheria, and when I spoke of a
severe medicine as the only hope for re
covery she threw up her hands in that
same horror mothers do when extreme
measures are to be resorted to to save
their infants."—Indianapolis Journal.

Natvu ally there is war to the knife be
tween the advocates of the old and those
of the new systems. The new men say
that naval warfare has reached that point
of scientific development that a man needs
be a scientist in order to be a good officer.
The older officers admit the necessity for
an advance over the methods employed
with wooden vessels and sailing ships, yet
don't agree to the proposition that in four
years a young fellow can acquire all the
sciences. They say with truth that every
thing done now at the academy is purely
experimental, while many tilings, like
giving the cadets meant for line officers,
the engineers and the naval constructors
all exactly the same course of instruction,
are preposterous. Nothing wider apart
than the duties of these officers can be
imagined. An engineer doesn't need to
know how to build a ship, nor a ship
builder how to navigate a vessel, yet they
arc turned out in a batch on graduation
day, all having gone through precisely the
same course of instruction.
Funny stories are told alxmt these
walking compendiums of universal
knowledge. One Saturday some time ago
the second class were all taken on board
the Constellation for a cruise down the
bay. They were to have charge of the
engine room and everything. When the
cadet engineers and their instructor—all
learned in the books-—tried to start the
engines the pistons would not move a peg.
In vftiu was every expedient tried. The
engines were carefully examined, and a
perplexed and perspiring crowd were at
their wits' end. At last a stoker, peering
about, discovered that the scientists had
forgotten to turn the steam on. Tlii»was
not specifically set down in UMJ books, but
as soon as this small particular was
attended to the engines worked beauti
