reduction in western grain rates by the interstate commerce commission is the effect such a reduction will have on rates in That state is traversed by hundreds of miles of track owned by the roads having lines from Chicago to the territory be yond tho Missouri river with the excep tion of the which has only about three miles in Kates in Iowa are lower and on a different basis than in any other state in the Under the Iowa which have been enacted by a generation of antiliquor and railroad the slightest change in through rates on any traffic which passes across the state is liable to affect every rate within tbe state boun For a line owning lines in both the north and south sections of Iowa cannot make one rate for a fifty mile haul on one section of its road and a higher rate for the same service on another no mat ter what different conditions govern the operation of the two To re duce rates from the Missouri river to Chicago on the lines crossing Iowa would compel readjustment of the Iowa dis tance whicli fixes uniform rates on every mile of railroad in the by which it is claimed that many millions of dollars of revenue would be wiped To reduce rates on the lines passing around Iowa from competitive have the same effect or drive the transIowa lines out of carrying through For years Iowa has enjoyed rates better than her until at last the railroads have wearied of fight ing reductions in that state and are merely skimming along as best they Railroad business in the state has be come so unprofitable and the investment has become so hazardous that railroad operators have given the state a wide berth and no new roads arc being built in the although there is still room for considerable development by building branch There is another feature of Iowa rates which the residents and legislatures of adjoining states have as yet failed to Where the rail roads are forced to make iinremunerative rates in Iowa they make up the differ so far as is on their lines

investigation into the steamer Sea Wing disaster on Lake Pcpin is slowly proceeding and a great many witnesses are being ex The main points tobe deter mined are whether Captain Wcthern was negligent in starting out in the face of an approaching storm and guilty of allowing more than one hundred and seventyfive persons on the The Sea Wing was permitted to carry 250 provided she towed two barges but if it is shown that there were more than 175 on board with only one barge this fact will count against the cap Among the witnesses who testified this forenoon was James of Eed who so nobly saved the life of Miss May His account of the disaster was thrilling and When he saw the gathering storm Webb took four lifepreservers and threw them over to some ladies and suggested that they put them But they did not believe there wag any Hiss said lilre to see justhowone of the life preservers would work and put one I had scarcely fastened a preserver said when the firstgale struck It was pitch and the next thing I realized I was floundering in the A flash of lightning re vealed the boat about fifty feet and I swam toward her and seized Kiss By this time the storm was Vi us in all its fury and I caught hold olthe vessels wheel and held on for probailT a few minutes but It almost an age to I jeld on to the wheel with my i hand and kept hold of Miss Casey with my Pretty soon the boat paftly righted and I was forced to let So great was the pressure of the water surg ing up from under the wheel that it sent us both quite a distance from the and one of the strings of Miss Caseys life preserver snapped I then be lieved she would be but did my best to keep her from We were about fifty feet from the and I could make but little headway in trying to swim toward the Then I saw a kind of a wooden float and we both seized it and were carried along beside the over turned I saw a man with two life preservers and thinking that was one too asked him for one of but ho refused to give it TO Dan One or tbe Cronln Murder but a Shadow of His Former July Dan Coughlin is the only one of the Cronin murderers upon whom confinement seems said Deputy Warden the penitentiary at He is fret ting himself to He is but a shadow of his former and if a new trial is not granted him before long there will be a funeral or a big This statement was made to a reporter whom the deputy warden conducted throgh the It was occasipncd by the failure of the reporter to recog nize with whom he was well Coughlins appearance was somewhat changed by his convict The main was in his His cheeks were pale and The expression was careworn and mel One would be impressed in stantly with the thought that confine ment had undermined his health and left him little more than a physical He was industrially chiseling a large block of stone in one of the work bending over it intently and refusing to look up at the It is all continued the deputy He seems to have something on his mind He is industri ous and and evidently tries to be but he does not bear confine ment as most of the other prisoners Of course he has more to worry over than OSullivan or He has his wife and child who come to see him as often as the rules of the prison It maybe mere anxiety for their welfare that is gradually breaking him down but I am inclined to question At any rate there have been few prisoners here in whoso appearance there have been such a change in so short a You spoke of a possible sensation I have watched Coughlin pretty and I have formed a decided I know that lie has built great iiopcs on having a new and that it will be a terrible blow to him if he docs not get I believe he is brooding over the fact that he and his two companions are suffering punishment for a crime in which they were doubtless but in which they were after all only The inroads made on his I am are due wholly to mental There is no assignable and I am inclined to think that it would not take a great deal to induce lim to break down and tell ail ho knows of the The decisive moment vill be when it is known definitely vhether or not a new trial will be Have you had any intimation di rectly from him that would lead you to hink he was weakening I can hardly think He is not He never has been since ho came I base my ipiujon in this instance as I have in the asc of many other on the mani est signs of an careworn Dans got something
