They procured teams and'at once commenced a raid on the oonntry adja cent to the city, claiming in town to be' working in the interest of an Omaha nursery company. They remained tiH Friday morning, making visits into the oountiy every day to sell ''trees." On this morning tbey had been preparing to go into the ooantry but something seems to have frightened them, for, just about the time the east bound train was due they picked np their luggage and de parted in great haste. It was theh dis covered that they had been imposing cheap jewelry and plated silverware upon the farming oommunity, wbioh fact they were careful not to disolose in town. What frightened them away may never be known, but that they were a bad gang and are better for this com munity along way off there is no donbt for everything goes to show that they were "ropera," as tbe name of the leader of the gang very properly suggests.

Paul Pioneer Press: A prominent railroad offloial said yesterday that in his opinion the interstate commerce law would oause a decrease of the earnings of all the western roads, particularly west of St. Paul, Omaha and Kansas City, and he thought west of Ohioago. By the withdrawal- of rates on mileage tickets and excess baggag9 to commer cial travelers, he- said, the traveling expenses of these men would be inoreased 16 per cent, which would decrease their number. Then passes were out off, and where a man had heretofore traveled on & pass and taken his wile along paying her fare, he would now stay at home beoause he zucst pay for bcth, and would not care to go alone. Then the withdrawal of land explorers' tickets would oause many men to stay at Lome because the trip was no longer cheap. The offloial said that eaoh of these and a dozen other things would oause a little dropping off and it was these little bits whioh mads up tbe earnings.
