The Young Men's Republican club Is pre
paring q make tho coming annual banquet
to In- given on the evening of February
12 one of the most Interesting yet held
Among the speakers who have already ac
cepted Invitations to be present and deliver
addresses are Secretary of Elate John E.
Swangor of Missouri and Attorney General
Xorrls Brown. Other noted men have been
invited to lie present, and when the list
of speakers is announced It will Include
some of the big men of the republican
party. Should Governor Magoon ! nble
to get hero from Washington he may be
one of the speakers.
Some of the candidate seem unable to
make up their minds whether they would
lie benefitted or Injured by the late con
vention. Should the convention be culled
early they figure that the fight would be
upon the nomination of a governor and
the endorsement of a candidate for the
senate, and In the excitement they would
c rawl tinder the wire without creating any
disturbance. The other thought is that If
an enrly convention Is called the delegates
might be in such a hilarious mood that
they might conclude, to, make a clean
sweep of the state house. Therefore, with
the exception of Secretary cf State Galusha,
none of them will be quoted on the matter.
The coming meeting of the newspaper
men to be held here the latter part of the
month is creating considerable Interest.
It Is the general talk that the editors will
adopt some red hot resolutions telling how
the state officers should conduct the busl
ness of the state and also recommending
to the next legislature' a few things that
should be. done. t

The Exact Cause.
Muny a child, while nursing, has ac
quired un appetite for strong drink be
cause the motlrvr used beverages contain
ing alcohol. A letter from an Elgin, 111.,
mother Illustrates the necessity of great
care us to the mother's food and drink
while she Is nursing her child:
."What I have to Say should be of In
terest to mothers who are so fortunate as
to be able to nurse their babies," she
writes. "Until my first baby came I did
not realino that coffee waa the cause of the
severe attacks of nervousness to which I
was subject at times. 1 found that when
one of these attacks came upon .me, baby
was affected in the same way, at about the
same time, and reflection led me to con
clude that It was the coffee I drank that
was making us both 111.
"Having rend an article about Fostum
Food Coffee. I decided to give It a trial,
and when I had learned to prepare Ii
properly, by bol'ing It at least 3n minutes,
I round that with cream It was a delicious
drink. And It proved most beneficial to
the health of hoih of us.
"However, when I gave up the old coffee
I thought there would he no harm in hav
ing one cup of the old kind on Sunday
mornings for old time's sake. Two Sun
days showed me the folly of this. I was
amazed at the influence the coffee had on
my own and baby's nerves. It made ine
restless and unstrung till lis effects had
time to wear off. and atiout the time I be
gan to feil easier It began to affect baby
through the milk, so that it spoiled our
entire day. When I found this to he the
case 1 gave up the Sunday morning coffee
"And thai ended the nervous attacks for
both of us. This was five years ago. and
I have nsed l'ostum regularly ever since.
and enjoyed it as much as I ever did the
other kind of coffee.
"1 believe that the fretful condition of
babies is caused by the coffee drinking habit
of the mother.
it Is hard to deny children the drink
they see their parents enjoying at the
luble. and It is u great comfort to he able
lo let them have all the Fostum they want.
Served with cream. It has proved an ideal
beragc for my three little ones.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 4. (Special. I A
railroad rate bill will be passed during the
present session of the flfty-nlnth congress.
Every Indication points to that end. It Is
true that there Is disagreement In the
Interstate and foreign commerce commit
tee of the senate, which has under con
sideration all hills relating to railroad rate
regulation, hut It is anticipated that out
of that committee will come a Mil such
as the democrats signed with the repub
licans In the house and between the Hep
burn measure, which will pass the house
Inwi few days, and the bill which the
senate committee will report, there will
be little difference. President Roosevelt
recognises the rights of railroads, he also
recognises the rights of Individuals. Con
fiscation of property Is prohibited by the
constitution. Redress for attempted con
fiscation of property lies with tho courts
and the bill which la now under discussion
In the house of representatives, compre
hending that clause of the constitution
which relates to Interstate commerce, has
adroitly avoided any suggestion as to the
constitutionality by clothing the Interstate

President Roosevelt has presented a num
ber of very definite Issues to congress In
the messages he has Dent to the legislative
body of the government since assuming
the office of president. Statehood for Okla
homa, Indian Territory, Arizona and New
Mexico has been very close to him. Since
the visit of Secretary Taft and a delega
tion from the senate and house to the
Philippines a reduction on Imports from
the Philippines has Impressed him to the
extent of writing a strong message to
congress urging a reduction in the Philip
pine tariff. Two of these measures have
passed the house and are now pending In
the senate. The third proposition, which
Is really first In the president's mind, will
pass without material amendment and will
go to the senate with an almost unanimous
vote. And this Is the proposition on which
the president stands, the regulation of
The railroad rate bill will be long in
passing the senate. There are many lsins
In that body and there are many constitu

tariff bill and the statehood bill might be
modified and accepted by the administration
in order that a railroad rate bill along the
lines recommended in the last message of
the president to congress may become a
law. To that end every power that the ad
ministration has is being directed.
Easier Commnnleat ton with Mexico.
While a widespread Interest Is manifested
everywhere in the growth of the commercial
relations between the U nlted States and the
oriental empires, very little has been hear!
or seen recently In reference to the grow
ing commerce between this country and
the republics to the south of us. Mexico In
particular. Yet within the last few years
millions 'Of American capital have been In
vested In mining, forestry, agriculture and
manufactures In tho. sister republic. The
railroads are beginning to recognize the op
portunities for business which a satis
factory line i of i Communication promises,
and recently an experiment In transporta
tion was Inaugurated between St. Louis and
Mexico City, which has already demon
strated that the time Is ripe for better fa
cilities for communication.
j Mr. William E. Hoyt, eastern passenger
.agent of one of the western roads, has been
j he-re this week and he tells an interesting
story which demonstrates the readiness of
; the people of this country to Belze any op-
! porttmlty to reach the City of Mexico
promptly and comfortably. "On the lOtti of
January," said Mr. Hoyt, "a special solid
vestibule train was started nut of St. Louis
over the. Iron Mountain and Mexican Na
tional railroads. It is scheduled to reach
the City of Mexico In fifty-nine hours from
the time it leaves St. Louis which Is equiv
alent to four days from New York. The
train is a solid vestlhule Pullman car line
with diner, smoker and all modern traveling
conveniences. Its capacity is lrti irassen
gcrs. and It Is at present run out of St.
Louis twice each week. The demand for
space has been so great that every' berth Is
engaged for three weeks ahead and from
present Indications a dally service will h
necessary within a short time. This only
Indicates," said Mr. Hoyt, "that the Amer
ican people are anxious to estahUsh closer
relations with Mexico and I think we are
entering unon an era of commercial and
social reciprocity which will hind the two
republics closer together to the mutual ad
vantage of lxith peoples."
Senator Flatt'a Activity.
Senator T. C. Piatt is physlcully one of
the frailest men in the senate. And yet tha
senior senator from New York need take
no back seat when It comes to mental ac
tivity. There is no more Industrious man
in the upper house of congress today than
he. As chairman of the Joint committee
on printing he has worked hard and con
tinuously with his colleagues In bringing
atiout n reform of the methods prevailing
lu the government printing office. He has
attended nearly ill the hearings and Is
as well posted as to the conditions prevail
ing and the best methods for curtailing
expenses In the great print shop as any
member of congress. But it Is not only
in the committee on printing that Senator
Piatt is an Important factor. He is a
member of the important committees on
finance, naval affairs and Inferoeeanlc
canals, and no memlier of those .bodies
is more regular in Ids attendance than he.
In fad, among his colleagues the senator
Is regarded as the most persistent at
tendant upon coipmlttee meetings in the
senate today. Senator Piatt is no sprinter.
He walks with difficulty, but he is clear
In the head today as he ever was and
from all appearances will continue to be
a potential force in the affairs of the
senate during the remainder of his term.
