An effort will be made to fix the assess

retary W. B. Martin, Treasurer O. 8. Oil
bertson and Auditor F. F. Merrlara.
It Is conceded on all sides among the
railroad managers as well as political man
agers, that there will be an Increase In the
assessment this year. The present assess
ment Is $47,071,258, which, under the Iowa
law, Is one-fourth of the actual value; so
thst the property of the railroads In Iowa
Is valued tor purposes of taxation at $188,

Repeat the Nebraska Plea.
The railroads protest against paying ad
ditional taxes. They insist that they are
doing their full share when they pay one-
thirteenth of all the taxes state, local,
school, ets. collected in Iowa. In 1901 they
paid $1,509,370 of the total taxes collected,
amounting, to $19,726,789. It was on this
basis that the railroads successfully cam
paigned the last legislature and prevented
the passage of laws which would have re
quired the council to increase their as
sessment 60 per cent.
The managers are concerned chiefly as to
the amount of the proposed Increase. Ru
mors have floated about political circles
that Governor Cummins has determined to
stand for ah increase of $15,000,000, or
about 30 per cent, In the assessment of
railroads of. the state. .While this rumor
is kmwn to, have no foundation so far as
such an 'opinion or view having
emanated from the governor ia conoerncd
the railroads are uncertain as to his position
and fear that he will urge a larger increase
than they regard as just or essential.
Undoubtedly the railroads would not ob
ject to an Increase of $2,500,000 or $3,000,000.
This they have reason to expect, and with
such a proposition tbey have no quarrel.
viewing the remarkably prosperous year
they have had. Moreover, their principal
objection to an increase in a larger sum is
not so much to the additional taxes they
would have to pay on the immediate as
sessment, but in times of panic they can
not expect a corresponding reduction, for

This conclusion waa reached at a meet

until the next year, when it was repeated,
That year Mr. Herriott proved that he was
objecting to the distribution of the assess
ment and not to its- amount by himself
moving to make it practically the sum of
the year before. In March, 1900,
he again protested, and at this
time went into the newspapers of the atate
charging Governor Leslie M. Shaw, Secre
tary of State O. L, Dobson and Auditor of
State F. F. Merrlam with grossly favoring
the Northwestern railroad at the expense
of the Chicago, Rock Island ft Pacific and
other roads.
Sentiment of Iowa Republicans.
The question entered into the campaign
of that year to some extent. - A decided
current in the republican party waa toward
higher and more equitable railroad as
sessment. In part thla feeling was re
sponsible for -the nomination of Secretary
Martin and Treasurer GUbertson, but on
the same ticket with them .was Auditor
Merrlam and the convention endorsed the
administration of Governor Shaw.
Mr. Herriott and Mr. Dobson went out of
office the first of the year 1901 and Messrs.
GUbertson and Martin took their placea at
the council table. By unanimous vote that
year the council decided to Increase the
assessment slightly more than $1,000,000,
although an Increase of $6,000,000 was first
suggested by Secretary Martin and after
ward withdrawn.
Of the Increase, however, over 40 per
cent waa on the Northwestern. Thla was
on account of the enormous earnings
shown by its main line. They are almost
twice aa large aa the earnings of any other
trunk line in Iowa, except the Burlington.
The agitation continued and assumed
bitter form during the campaign preceding
the republican convention of 1901. A large
number of county conventions denounced
the executive council for Its railroad as
sessment and demanded Increases and more
equitable distribution. There is no dispute
over the fact that the movement was In the
interest of the candidacy of Mr. Cummins,
who waa successful. But . the platform
adopted by the convention which nominated
him was silent on the question.
One of Cummins' Laws.
During the succeeding campaign M.
Cummins expressed himself on the ques
tion, insisting that .the people should not

Another law was passed on suggestion

Coffee Slowly and Steadily Poisons
Some Persons.
There is no doubt that coffee secretly
and quietly causes an Immense amount of
misery to the human race, but In the ma
jority of casea tho person does not sus
pect the cause of the trouble.
A Virginia lady had an Interesting ex
periment with coffee poison. She says
"For about five yeara I was troubled with
indigestion, weak stomach, and palpita
tion of the heart so bad that at times I
would fall and have to be carried Into the
house. Finally I began to have spasms
and suffered untold misery. I tried all
kinds of patent medlcluea and different
doctors, only to get temporary relief,
I finally gave up all hope of getting well.
My stomach was in such condition that
everything but stale bread would throw
me into spasms. I nearly starved myself
but never suspected that coffee was the
cause of all the trouble, nor did I have
any ldaa what the cause was.
One day Father told me he had been
reading how Postum Food Coffee helped
so many people who wero sick from coffee
drinking and he urged me to leave off
coffee and try Postum. I said. Oh, Father
I cannot try It and do not believe It would
do me any good,' but he persuaded me to
try a package.
The first making tasted so flat that It
made me half sick but I determined to
give it a fair trial so I read the directions
carefully and found It must be boiled at
least fifteen mtnutea. Well, I boiled it 25
minutes then added some good cream and
I tell you It waa delicious. I like It better
than the ordinary coffee and of course stick
to it.
Well, I have been using it alnce the 15th
of July now, quite two months.
gained about 25 pounds. I gained six
pounds In 13 weeks and can eat anything
I want and all that I want. My stomach
never burta me. I have gained strength
until now I can do my own work and go to
church every Sunday.
People aay, 'You are looking so well,
what kind of medicine are you taking?' I
tell them I have quit all kinds of medicine
and also coffee and am only using Postum
You may be sure I will recommend it
and will guarantee a cure where the per
son will boll it long enough and drink
enough of it. I would do without a meal
(or the aake of one cup of Postum.
I could tell a lot more but apace will
not permit. You are at liberty to print
thla letter and my name alao (or the ben
efii of others." Mrs. A. T. Brown, Central
Station, W. Va.
