tender Fre.ent System Import. Mar
Coma from London, to Miaaoarl
Much Cheaper Than from
A Joint conference of the trunk Una im
port committee and representative, of the
ffulf lines. Western Freight association and
transmlssourl lines will be held In New
York October 8, at which time the plan of
placing the Inland proportions of the
through import rate on a fixed basis to all
points will be ierfected.
Tha railroads from the Missouri river east
have entered into an agreement to protect
American industries from tha inroads which
hava been made on them by a competition
made possible by cheap ocean and Inland
freight rates. All the through rates from
tha Missouri river points and points west
are to be checked and Issued anew. Tha
recent investigation by the Interstate Com
merce commiaalon disclosed the fact that in
many cases the through rates were such as
entirely to remove the protective tariff. Un
der this condition many imported articles,
for example, could be shipped from London
to Missouri river points cheaper than tha
tune article could be shipped from tha sea
board to tha same points. An agreement
has bean reached between the steamship
lines and the railroads whereby all import
rates are to be based on Haltlmore, which
will be the 100 per cent point. The steam
ship lines have agreed to accept 136 per
cent of the Baltimore rate on all imports
by way of the gulf ports and to south At-
. lantlo ports, which will effectually protect
the home Industries.
The differential exacted against the gulf
ports is only sufficient to cover the extra
Insurance and compensate for the extra
water haul. It also U expected that the
existing differences on the export rates on
grain wtU be settled at this conference.
The lines east of Chicago declare that their
loss of business due to the Increase of ex
port business by way of tho gulf comes
from an unjust differential of 8 cents in
favor of the gulf ports. They have asked
that this be lowered to 2H cents per hun
dred pounds, which is sufficient to cover
What a sweet dis

extra insurance. That an agreement will
be reached on this basis Is probable, as will
be seen from the fact that the export
trade on flour from the Missouri river has
been adjusted on the same basis of allow
ing the gulf lines a differential of 83-100 of
a cent por 100 pounds.

OBSERVE DUAL ANNIVERSARY
Congrecatloa of First Presbyterian
Church Tenders Heceptlon to
fnstor and Wife.
Tha reception tendered to Rev. Edwin
Hart Jenks and Mrs. Jenks by the members
of the congregation of tho First Presby
terian church last night was a very enjoy
able affair. Almost all the members of the
congregation were present in the parlors of
ths church. The occasion was the twentieth
anniversary of the wedding of Rev. and
Mrs. 'jenks and also the fourth anniversary
of the assumption of the pastorate of the
church by the minister. The parlors were
beautifully decorated for the occasion with
flowers snd palms. The reception was under
the auspices of the Ladies' Aid society.
Mrs. Wllhelm was at the piano and Miss
Gamble and Mrs. Troxell sang. Miss Kahili
rendered a selection on the violin. A beau
tiful china dinner service was the present
to the pastor from the congregation. Dr.
Henry made the presentation speech.
At the conclusion of the address Rev.
Jenks responded In a few well chosen words
and refreshments were served.
terday morning was carried out In detail.
During the forenoon Rabi Simon de
livered an eloquent address on the sub
ject, "Be a Man," and there waa also
some excellent singing. The afternoon serv
ice opened at 8 o"clock. The rabbi spoke
on "The Destiny of Man." The services
were concluded by a, memorial to the dead
and a discussion of the immortality of the
soul. Miss Meyer sang "Dry Your Tears"
very beautifully. The character of the
service is suggested by the text, which
was Longfellow's "The Day is Done."
The church was crowded all through the
day, and all the congregation seemed
especially impressed by the solemn me
morial service. The sermons of the rabbi
were listened to with close attention, and
especially appealed to those having de
parted relatives or friends.

three tracks from the Belt Line make

All -ot the chutes are paved and a concrete
wall Drotects each chute. This Improve

pany about $100,000. By the extension of
the western lines of transportation the
company will be In a position to handle the
western cattle with much less congestion
In the lower yards than formerly.
In addition to the new chutes there Is an
extra cattle division, and this will be
utilized as soon as the big run of western
stuff commences. Two new lines into the
chutes Just opened are projected and the
grading for the tracks has been completed.
With five lines running Into the new divi
sion it Is expected that all cattle coming
from any direction can be handled rapidly.
From the present date until April 1 these
new tracks and chutes will be used almost
constantly. Reports from the ranges are
that the shipments ot feeder stuff will ex
ceed that of other years.

AT THE PLAYHOUSES
"Queen of the Highway" nt the Kmc,
Neither geographical conditions nor ethno
logical considerations are allowed to cut
any figure In this latest of the Walllck pro
ductions. It evidently Is not Intended to In
struct, merely to amuse, and the student of
the drama will find It as amusing as the
lover of heroics finds it entertaining. With a
charming disregard for known facts, and a
fidelity to the yellowback novel notion of
the west, the author, whose name is given
on the bill as Charles A. Taylor, has pro
duced a concoction which contains about
every criminal ingredient known to the bor
der history, and has offset these unlovely
spots with touches of heroism and devotion
a magnificent as any found in the whola
realm of romance. And maybe you think it
doesn't "go"T Well, If you had been at the
Krug last night vand heard the shouts ot
approval and the hisses of condemnation
that greeted each exhibition of the one or
the other element that make up the piece
you'd change your mind. The large audience
was not at all dismayed by the syncopation
of geography which brought tho plains into
Juxtaposition with the redwood forests; nor
did It care to note the violence done to fact
by setting up a Sioux Indian village in the
mountains. And it enthusiastically stamped
and clapped and whistled Its approval of the
Injustice done the American cowboy,
notoriously the bravest and most chivalrous
of men, when the action of the play re
quires a bunch of dare-devil riders of the
plains to refuse to undertake a perilous trip
and allow a slip of a girl to ride away alone
on an errand that seemed to mean certain
death. In fact, all through the piece the
work falls on the women, and the men
folks Just happen in at the right moment to
make a crowd.
Miss Charlotte Severson gives the thank
less part of Belle Diamond, the bandit
queen, real life, and displays genuine ability
In some of her scenes, especially In ths
third act. Alberta Lee has apparently gotten '(
her notion of a Sioux halt-breed from a,,
dime novel, but does the part well accord
ing to her conception, and made Rainbow'
quite popular last night. Margaret Nelson '
is good as Jess Miller, ths heroine of the
piece. The others In the long cast, including
the horses and dog, 'work with a will, and
the action of the play Is never allowed to
halt. The staging has been dona with the
care that marks all the Walllck product.
Hons, and is really good, the settings being
as natural as the story is exaggerated.
