Is but 120,000 for the entire area of OT.KX)
square miles, and we eatlmate the state haa
sufficient mineral and agricultural resources
to sustain 6,000,000 people," said Mr. Chat-
terton. "The state at preaent has more at'
tractive features than either Michigan,
Illinois, Iowa or Wisconsin had in 1850, aa
well as having more mllea of railroad. It
Is covered with fertile valleys suitable for
farming, and. the rolHng hills furnish most
excellent gracing landa for both cattle and
sheep. The climate of .Wyoming cannot be

sandy loam, with a good subsoil In the up

In his view, the order should Issue. First,
the clerk of the board must make the same

City Attorney Breen was willing to rest
on the evidence developed In the question

Various attorneys for the brewing Inter

The departmental disapproval of Mr.
Allan's reappointment haa not yet been re

prevail that such aa Intimation Is now on
tha way to Marshal Warner's office. The
story that Allan was to be let out has
been no secret at the federal building for
several days and In the meanwhile Mr.
Allan has been making a little hay for
himself. Monday he was made a special
in the secret service department at the
stipend of 13 per day.
"While I have not been officially notified
that I have got to go, I have been looking
for It for aome time," said Mr. Allan, "and
have been preparing for the event so as to
be ready when It does come. I know I
have been the subject of considerable criti
cism, but any man In this position could
not expect otherwise. However, I shall not
resign under fire, for I am not afraid to

Nearly everybody knows that charcoal Is
the safest and moat efficient disinfectant
and purifier In nature, but few realise Its
value when taken into the human system
for the same cleansing purpose.
Charcoal is a remedy that the more you
take of It the better; It is not a drug at all,
but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities
always present In the stomach and Intes
tines and carries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after amok
Ing, drinking or after eating onions and
other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and improves
the complexion. It whitens the teeth and
further acts as a natural and eminently
It absorbs the Injurious gases which col

All druggists sell charcoal in one form or
another, but probably the best charcoal and
the moat for the money Is in Btuurt s Char

finest powdered willow charcoal, and other

A Buffalo physician, in speaking of the
benefits of charcoal, says: "I advise
Stuart's Charcoal Losenges to all patients
suffering from gas In stomach and bowels,
and to clear the complexion and purify the
breath, mouth and throat; I also believe
the liver Is greatly benefited by tho daily
use of them; they cost but twenty-live cents
a box at drug stores, and although In soma
sense a patent preparation, yet I believe I
get more and better charcoal In Stuart's
Charcoal Losenges than in any of the or

THER OrriCIAL CHANGES TAKE PLACE
Mr. Kaha leaves Company with
Which He Has Beea Many
Tears to Engage la
Following the announcement that J. A.
Kubn was to sever hla connection ' with
the Northwestern railroad to engage In
other business in Omaha, comes the official
announcement of the Northwestern of the
resignation of Mr. Kuhn as well aa
the announcement of the appointment of his
successor. The other changes announced
to take effect January IS are: 8. F. Miller,
assistant general freight and passenger
agent, Omaha, succeeding J. A. Kuhn; H.
W. Beyers, asststsnt general freight ngent,
headquarters Chicago; J. 8. Talbot, assist
ant general freight agent, headquarters
Chicago; T. 8. Rattle, general agent, Colorado-Utah
territory, office, Denver, Colo.,
succeeding D. H. Hoops, transferred; D.
H. Hoops, general agent, freight depart
ment, office 310 Clark street, Chicago, suc
ceeding H. W. Beyers.
S. F. Miller, who succeeds Mr. Kuhn, Is
do stranger to many of the shippers Of this
city, as he has been here on numerous oc
casions and la well liked wherever he hat
been. Mr.-Miller Is fin example of the way
a man may rise In the railroad world by a
strict attention to the buslneas of the com
pany. He was first started In railroad work
as a telegraph operator for the Northwest
ern In 1880, and from that position was pro
moted to be station agent at several smaller
stations until 1897, when he was made gen
eral agent at Oshkosh. In 1902 he was
called Into tho Chicago offices as assistant
general freight agnt. and It waa In this
position that he formed tho acquaintance
of so many Omaha men who do business
with the Northwestern. This promotion Is
one well deserved and the commercial In
terests will be glad to welcome Mr. Miller
to Ms new position.
Great Westera Denies It.
"The rumor that the Great Western will
continue Its rate of S't cents to Chicago
after January 15 Is all wrong," said H. H.
Churchill, general ngent for the Great
Western at Omaha. "Aa announced In The
Bee two days ago and carried by the Asso
ciated Press Wednesday morning, the fight
over 1 cent on grain for the east has been
the cause of the breakup of the rate busi
ness, or rather the cause of the roads going
back to the sum of the two locals by which
rate all roads have agreed to abide. The
eastern roads refused to accept any part
of the cut of 1 cent required to make the
rule 21V cents Instead of 22i cents from
Omaha to Baltimore, which is the sum of
the two locals. The basis which had been
agreed upon was a differential of cents
over the lS-cent gulf rote, but the lines
east of Chicago would not participate In
the cut. It will not affect Omaha very long
anyway, tiecause It Is Impracticable to ship
via the southern ports much after Feb
ruary, and I think Nebraska corn will con
tinue to move Just the same."
Several Have Galf Cutlets.
Several of the lines to the east have Gulf
outlets for the grain from this section.
The Northwestern recently has established
a . new route whereby It hauls the corn to
Dixon, 111., which Is on the main line of the
Illmois Central, and delivers It to this road
for shipment to th'e Gulf ports. The Bur
lington has an established route whereby
It can haul grain from Nebraska and deliver
it to the Illinois Central at Centralla, III.,
thus getting a much longer haul than II
delivered at Kansas City or 8t.: Louis, and
also thus avoiding the crowded terminals of
East St. Louis, wehre cars are laways de
layed. "The Gulf Is the natural outlet for this
country and it will always get the bulk of
the corn in the winter time." said Secretary
Merchant of the Omaha Grain exchange.
"The railroad haul Is BOO miles shorter to
the Gulf than to the Atlantic ports, and the
natural course of the corn Is In the direc
tion Of the least expense. In warm weather
the heat renders the southern route not so
practicable for shipment. One reason that
the eastern roads will withdraw the rate Is
! that they probably have all they can do.
enyway. The change will not hurt Omaha.
We will ahlp our corn and send It by way of
