i DiscrimhaL'oi Sta la Inter
est cl River Citlss.
. Des Moines. Nov. 2. Business houses
located In Iowa cities along the Mis
sissippi river can ship goods into the
territory of Interior Iowa cities on
better freight rates than shippers lo
cated In interior Iowa, according to
the testimony submitted In the Iowa
and Des Moines freight rate hearings
before Interstate Commerce Commis
M. N. Jones, trafflc manager for the
William Oalloway company at Water
loo, testified that Dubuque can ship
Into Waterloo territory cheaper than
Waterloo can, and that tho Mississippi
river cities ship to Waterloo's back
door, competing strongly with Water
loo firms because of the advantage or
better frelpht rates. Mr. Jones sa'd
that the rate from Waterloo to Pierre,
S. D., on certain classes of freight Is
: '.22 ner hundred pounds, the same
rate quoted from Chicago to Pierre.
He declared that Chicago and the
Mississippi river crossings have the
advantage of lower rates Into Kansas.
He quoted several other Instances to
prove that the Interior Iowa towns
are subject to unjust discrimination.
"Every Iowa town pays 122 per cent
of the Chicago rate from New York,"
said Commissioner Thome. "Missouri
towns pay only 117 per cent of the
Chicago rate from New York. In addi
tion, every Iowa town pays 5 cents
per each 100 pounds as bridge toll
across the Mississippi river. This Is
rot required of the Missouri towns."
Although the Interior Iowa cities are
asking for rates that will allow them
to compete more strongly with the
Mlss'sslppl river cities, there is a re
markable lack of conflict between the
representatives of the two sections of
the state. In fact the Mississippi
river complaints ask a readjustment
of rates that will assist the Interior
Iowa cities In securing better rates.

Several Business Men In PlatUmouth Caught for Ten Dollars Each,
and He Attemps the Same Thins in Omaha Only for A Large
Amount and When Suspicion Was Aroused He Ships Out.
W. R. Heinman, who came up
from Murray last Saturday-evening
to spend Sunday in Platts
mouth, evidently became a little
short of finance, and has taken
rather desperate chances to re
plenish his supply of the filthy
lucre. Sometime during the day
Sunday he called at the store of
a local merchant and asked if
he could get a check cashed for
$10, informing the merchant
that he was working in the vicinity
of Murray. The merchant had
seen Heinman many times dur
ing his stay in Cass county, about
one year or a little more, and
supposed that his check was all
right, and readily gave him the
money. Later a second check
for $10 was cashed, and when
they appeared at the Murray
State bank, on which they were
drawn, Cashier Boedeker turned
them down for the want of funds.
Heinman has worked in and
near Murray for the past year or
more, a portion of the time for
Charles llerren, and seemed to
bear a pretty good reputation, but
he never had a bank nccount with
the Murray State bank, which
makes his crime a pretty serious

GET A SUIT MADE TO
A suit made to your individual
measure will give you more lasting sat- '
isfaction than any ready made suit you
could select. There is a neatness about
a made to measure garment that no
ready made can achieve.
A special value we are offering at
this time is a strictly tailored ladies'
costume for $16, and you have the
choice of 28 different materials. The
jacket is 28 inches long, small coat col
lar and reveres. Bone buttons and side
pockets gives it a distinctive effect. The
skirt has six gores with a panel back,
which has a two inch side plait. The
only way to realize the value we are of
fering you is to examine these materials
and see how this suit is designed.

HE 0 0 FUNDS
Heinman went to Omaha, where
he appeared at the Nebraska
Clothing company's store and
tried the same game. Here the
proprietor of Ihe store telephoned
Cashier Roedeekr as lo the con
dition of Heinman's account, as
he wanted them to cash a check
for $20. Mr. Boedeker informed
the Nebraska Clothing company
that the check would not be
honored, and if Heinman was still
in (heir store to turn him over to
the police. While the telephone
wa9 in use Heinman made his
"get-away," as he evidently came
lo the conclusion that he might
be taken in.
There may be a number of
other bogus checks in this city
that have not yet turned up at the
Murray bank, as the young man
seems to have been in the whole
sale business and issued the
falsely pretending checks wher
ever the opportunity presented, or
rather looked good to him. He
called at the Journal office Sunday
afternoon, thinking that a news
paper man might have $10 to ex
chance for one of his bogus
checks, but we were too wise for
Him, simply because we didn't
have the money.
