templated Journey to his homestead In
tho region between the Missouri river

It has ben learned that Hanson call

purpose of ascertaining what had be

In conformity with their action of
the last two years, the Burlington and
Union Pacific railroads will again en
join tho collection of their taxes for
10. During the lost few days these
roads have written letters to the va
rious county treasurers asking them If
they will take a partial payment on
the taxes as some of the counties did
In 1904 and 105. Some or the county
treasurers have asked th opinion or
the legal department on this matter
and Monday Attorney General Brown
sent out letters that no money should
be accepted less than the amount of
taxes without a speclflo order from the
federal court. The Northwestern. It la
understood, will not try to prevent tha
collection of Its taxes, because the
amount levied ugulnst this road In the
various counties Is Ihms than $2,000,
and therefore It oould not come within '
the Jurisdiction of the federal court
The railroad taxes become due Deo.
1 and It Is presumed by the letters sent
out, an injunction will be asked for
before that time.
After a cuiiforuiu-o butweeu Govt
Mickey and Mayor Brown, it was an
nounced that un umlcable understand
ing had been reuched which will do
away with the practice of arresting
convicts as f ion us they are dis
charged from tho penitentiary and
holding them ut the city Jail until they
are sent out or the city. The police
will continue to exercise surveillance,"

Distributive dealings again have ex

jobbing trades for staples and holtdsy
goods, while the seasonable weather
helps materially Iu reducing retail
stocks lu both city nnd country. A
tendency toward increased cost of sup

strength, ninl the need of additional
force Is more evident In the Iron, work

Disappointing receipts of lumber for

Failures reported iu the Chicago dis

Trade Is unprecedented
ly active for the seasoo..
Retail trade has broaden
ed out, with consequent Increase of tho
re-order demand from jobbers, and
there is rather more doing on sprlmr
account Higher prices for cotton have
helped Southern trade, Inducing freer
marketing nnd enlarging country trade
uud collections. Good reports also
come from the central West and At
lantic coust points, where weather con-'
dltlons have Improved. Something,
like an unfavorable cross current i
visible In the Northwest, where car
congestion aud overflowing country ele
vators are complained of as affecting
marketing of wheat. Tho grain trade
generally also complains of the car
congestion causing losses, owing to ex
jMirt business being delayed. This)
week's reports of grain shipments, how
ever, show large exports of both flour
and wheat from both coasts. Strikes
of grain handlers curtail shipments
from some Pacific jmrts. Reports or
labor scarcity are still well-nigh uni
versal, and the movement of the cotton
crop, the shipments of lumber, the out
puts of coal, and the deliveries of va
rious mills are still restricted front
this cause or by reason of Inadequate
car supply. Voluntary wage Increase,
are reiwrted In numerous tinea, but ag
itations for higher compensation are
uumerous among railway employes.
