An in crease of or a thousand on Lum Ber would Beja compared with which the Tariff would Cut no figure whatever. This is anything but a pleasant Pic Ture to look but that the danger threatens is Only too evident by the anxiety of the lumber dealers All along the River from eau Claire southward. It is to be earnestly hoped that the interstate commission will not Grant the eau Claire but if it is it not a cause for serious consideration that such a despotic Power to tear Down established industries has been vested in a Board of autocrats and All under the pretence of tue it a says the a question of Supply and or legitimate Competition by which All parts of the country May be built up and prospered under Nat ural but rather an artificial system which ignores Commerce and Trade by an arbitrary edit of a Board lawyers and Back number policy icons who know nearly As much about saw lumber i thanksgiving proclamation.

The Law is building method of and giving them certain Over Chicago in Erst Cost and nearness to their customers West or the River. To meet this disparity the railroads used to give by up great commercial and Industrial centers like Chicago and new Vork. And is doing it at the expense of the smaller cities and the villages. Anyone looking Over the country cannot fail to see this pro g40-12s4.

The Barbers now thinking of f officials und the representatives of for closing up shop at 8 provided eign electric companies. these posed to favor it so fur As it does not elect the Street car service. Since the question of lighting our City is one of so much importance As to interest several it has been remarked what absolute brotherly feeling exists Between certain City dealers special rates on through j Cess going on and Teie is nothing in this led to More or less cont dict of in i the situation that is encouraging. Is All agree to it and the shops Are not full of customers when the clock strikes the last evening the ladies of the Catho Lic Union gave a very pleasant Socia ble at the Hall on Brady Streat.

Stiver Steamboat who tread the decks of up River boats for Many take Delight in saying that this season has been More like old times on the River than they have known for a number of years. They say that the Bot i passenger and has been the Best they have enjoyed for eight years. The stage of water was excellent for slea boating with the exception of two weeks in when they experienced some difficulty a passing Hickory Chute. All ask for a successful season a a Stase of water. When the boats Are running the business is bound to the right Way to care Catarrh 13 to eradicate the poisonous taint which causes the by taking hoods Sarsaparilla.

The most severe and painful swellings in the neck or humor in the causing partial or total yield to the powerful effects of this Medicine. U thoroughly re moves every Trace of impurity from the blood and up the weakened a atom. Little daughter s life was As we by Hood s Sarsaparilla. Before she was six months old Ahe had 7 running scr Fula sores. One physician advised Tho amputation of one of her to which Teress. Another Factor in the problem was the estimation of the railroads North the establishment of Railis in the wineries and the shipment of manufactured lumber direct from the source of Supply to the dealers in the Mississippi country without passing through the hands of the dealers in Chicago or the Iowa or Illinois River i cities. This also involved special rates for lung hauls and More or less conflict of rival localities. In 1ss4 Harmony was sought by an agreed of or in rail Way a system differentials by which the Cost of the production and transportation was equalized Between the several competing Points so that lumber might be sent from any of the lumber shipping cities to any Given Point in the West without advantage or disadvantages to any of the Othar ship Ping Points. For Dubuque being nearer the source of Supply than is Davenport incurs less expense for transportation and it can therefore at Ford to pay a higher rate of freight to Iowa and Nebraska Points than could Davenport which has to bring its logs and lumber a much greater distance Down River before Tak ing them out of the River tor the Mills and for shipment by rail Westward. In like Mainier being farther from its trans Mississippi customers Aud having a heavier expense in secur ing a portion of its supplies was accorded a rate supposed to its disadvantages As compared with the River towns. A schedule of rates was agreed upon by the lumbermen in 1ss4 and adopted by the it has worked quite satisfactorily Ever since. The Iowa und Illinois Mills and Yards were enabled to compete with Chicago and the wineries and thousands of peo ple were Given employment in the saw planning Mills and pulling and piling lumber and various employments subsidiary to and dependent upon the lumber Industry. Now comes the wants it All. Its Headquarters Are at eau Claire. Wisconsin. It is a Gigantic Combina controlling extensive Mills. Watercourses. It can make upmost Money by concentrating its its Plant and its management All at eau which is near the source of Supply an j yet with in Good Range by diverging railway lines to the vast territory comprising Southern the Dako Etc. Eau Claire now wants a new set of differentials to which it will be Given advantage Over other Points. To gain this advantage the dealers of that District have appealed to the interstate Commerce commission and they have prepared an argument to show that the present classification discriminates against them and they make their Case As plausible As possible. This scheme is now being pressed upon the interstate Commerce if that body orders the changes asked for it will be a terrible blow to the lumber Trade of Davenport and of All the River Tours below eau Claire. The liar Linton Hawkeye result in a Wiir Lington will be to close every whole Sale Yard and probably Cempel the Transfer of the Burlington lumber company d Mills to eau As they could not do business Here any Davenport would doubtless be affected it not time to begin to review the conditions that Are working out these in toward a Cath Dhal of a Hekels. A new but very practical idea the car on . Many of our readers have heard of the novel car being built for Bishop Walker of North Dakota. The Bishop ha3 visited Here a great Many times and has my buy friends who will he pleased to learn that ins Cathedral car is completed at last. Part of the furnishings were made in this City by m. Bunker.

It was built by the Pullman company for the who will travel in it from one town to an other along the different railroads in North Dakota and give the inhabitants of the towns the advantages of crunch services. The project is one which promises to. Lili a Long Felt want in North Dakota. The new state contains Many Small communities which Are not Able to support a Church. The Bishop intends to travel through these stopping a Dav or two in each Aud hold services in the car. The car was on exhibition at the Baltimore Ohio depot yesterday. It is Iho Only one the kind in the world. Its exterior appearance is like that of a Ordinary Fullman except two projections in the roof. In length the car is sixty and is of the usual Width.

At the left is the Bishop s which is ornamented by artistically carved designs. All the furnishings were contributed by Lay men of the Bishop Walker will leave in his car today or tomorrow for from which City to will be Gin his unique travels.
