Johnson late this afternoon citing him to appear In commoa pleas court tomorrow morning to show cause why he should not be punished for contempt for violating a temporary In junction Issued by Judge Ford today. The injunction was Issued upon applica tion of the Cleveland Electric Railway company, restraining the city from pro ceeding further with the tearing up of the street car rails in Fulton street, which was begun by a force of several hundred men, under the personal direction of Mayor Johnson, early today. The work of tearing away the tracks was well under way when the restraining order wa served on the mayor and no attention was paid to It. The mayor put the papers In his pocket and ordered the work continued. The matter is the only outgrowth so far of the contest between the Cleveland Elec tric Railway company, which Is seeking an extension of its franchise, and the Forest City line, which is the new munic ipal line backed by Mayor Johnson and others.

Royal was the welcome ac corded the trade excursionists todsy. All along the line from Valentine to Rapid City the whol population greeted the vis itors, and if the latter ate one they ate half a doxen times, such was hospitality shown them. At Merrlman, a town of lf) people, the boosters were escorted to a little grove by the depot and served with a lunch consisting entirely of articles bought In Omaha. At Gordon the women served Ice cream, lemonade, rake and cigars and would take nothing but sou venir in return. Frank Currle of Chad ron was among the hosts. Chadron' depot platform was so crowded with cltlxens It was with diffi culty the boosters alighted. They were met by Mayor Donahue, members of the city council and a band and taken to a dinner of fried chicken and roasting ears at Rome Miller's hotel. Dinner over, the town was Invited In and en exchange of courtesies took place, 8. J. F. lager acting as chair man. Judgn A. W. Curtis welcomed the Omahans and paid a tribute to Mayor Dahlman aa a man who had helped build up Chadron and would help make Greater Omaha. Mr. Dahlman complimented the town of which he was once mayor and assured its people they could sell their stock In South Omaha at better prices than any city on earth and could buy goods in Omaha cheaper than in any city. Short addresses were made by Mr. lager and J. F. Houghton. Arthur Smith replied, thanking Chadron for loyalty to Omaha, which loyalty, with the prosperity of the surrounding country, had helped make Omnha what It Is. He took occasion to refer to Omaha politics and pleased his hearers when he said Mr. Dahlman would make a good mayor and would get many republican votes if he ever ran for governor. Chadron people were Invited to the Ak-Sar-Ren festivities this fall and Chadron's band was prom ised a place In the parade. Big Dny for Dahlman. Other towns stopped at were Rushville and Hay Springs. Neb., and Oelrichs, Buffalo Gap, Falrburn and Hermosa, 8. D., at all of which there was a lively time. The train stopped at Irwin, Neb., solely to let E. E. Zl m merman kiss his wife, who is visiting there. It was a big day for Mayor Dahlman. At every town women gave him flowers and at Chadron so many shook his hand that the train was held ten minutes over time. The country passed through is In a prosperous condition. Rain have been fre quent and grass and grain crops are large. At Hay Springs cltlxens had a fine agri cultural display at the depot, and at Rush ville showed some fine potatoes.

The party marched through the street of Rapid City and lined up In front of the Harney, where the citlsen gathered. Mayor Emerick welcomed the excuralonlsts and Mayor Dahlman replied with remark very complimentary to Rapid City. Stores were kept open and the Omahans spent the evening visiting. Breakfast at Valentine. MERRIMAN, Neb., July 25. (Special Tel egram.) Valentine' cltixen gave Omaha trade boosters a warm reception this morn ing, turning out en masse to watch the parade of the band and umbrella brigade and shake the hands of men from the metropolis of the state. They piloted the way to breakfast at hotels, one of which had fifty pounds of black bass caught from the Niobrara the day before. Women and children were decked from head to foot with souvenir. Mayor Dahlman was the center of attrac tion, for everybody In Valentine bs known him for years. After patting ba bies on the head for awhile, Mr. Dahlman was persuaded to sit for his picture on a pony. Dave O'Brien came by and the mayor started after him, swinging a lakso. Mr. O'Brien ran and dodged well, but was stopped in his mad flight by a dexterous throw, which showed Mayor Dahlman had not forgotten his cowboy training. Attention soon shifted to Clarke Colt, who was forcibly kissed by a Sioux squaw, whose fancy he had caught. He cume from the encounter blushing, but unharmed. Short stops were made at Crookston, Cody and Merrlman, and at each town the whole population turned out. The siren whistle was lost at Long Pine and the railroad officials are trying to find It, that It may be put in commission at Rapid City. General Superintendent C. Hughes of the Northwestern Joined the party at Norfolk and E. E. Benjamin, gen eral agent at Deadwood, got on the train at Cody.

The petitioners allege that the I'nlon Pa cific entered Into a contract with Teavey ft Co., under which the latter company erected grain elevators at Council Bluffs and Kansas City for the transfer of gralu for the public from the incoming cars of the Union Pacific to outgoing cars of the connecting lines at thesn terminal points of the I'nlon Pacltic and for this service the t'nlon raciflc agreed to pay Feavey & Co. lt cents per hundred weight. The com plaining railroads allege that the facts are "the elevators of Peavey & Co. were not i built for su.-h purposes and never have to any considerable extent. If at all, thus transferred grsln for the public, but were built and have been used solely and exclu sively for their own use In the grain trade." I Local Opinion of Suit.

July K.-German food adulteration is the subject of a rtport re ceived by the bureau of manufacturers from Consul Brlttaln at Kehl. Dr. Jacken. ack of Berlin state that there were 1,400 prosecutions for adulterating food products In Germany In 1WS; In 1898 the number had Increased to .S.OrtO; In 1901 to 3.6Xti. and In evidence. The case is that against tha Colon I'siifl-.for Slaving a contract with Peavey A Co. b? which the Vnloti Pacltlo agrees to pay 14 cents per hundred for grain elevated. The conditions now ar slightly different from what they were at the time of the other hearing, the Union Paclllo having strengthened Jts position by publishing a tariff granting elevation to all elevators on the Missouri river which will perform the service. When the con tract was entered Into with Peavey & Co. It was understood this company wa to build elevators at Omaha and Kansas City to receive all the grain coming In over the I'nlon Pacific and to transfer It to other lines to carry beyond. The complaint Is that the general public was not Invited to use these elevators, but they were used ex. cluslvely to handle the grain coming from the lines of elevators of the Peavey com- 1903 to .000. With Increased stringency nanv. Inlon Pnellle Win Flrt. At the former hearing of the case th In the Inspection laws It was discovered that many large and reputable German firms were carrying on privately special departments of their factories where reg ular chemists were employed to scientific ally adulterate their food products. Thirty Berlin butter manufacturers were summoned before the courts for an almost Incredible adulteration of their wares, and the German papers have frequently pub lished accounts of the manufacture In Strassburg and elsewhere of sausages from spoiled meat, colored and doctored with chemicals. Few weeks pass in Strassburg without the arrest of market women for adulterating butter. Wines, chocolate. cocoa, brandies and medicines have been discovered to contain absolutely Injurious and dangerous substances used for adul teration. Cosmetics and perfumes contain many foreign Ingredients. In fact, according to a Strussburg paper, there seems to be few articles of manufac tured fond and drink products which have not been the subject of adulteration on the part of the German manufacturers.

Interstate Commerce Commission decided the I'nlon Pacific company had a perfect right to pay this elevation charge on ac count of its situation. Omaha and Kan sas City are the terminals of the Cnlon Pacific and that company Is willing to pay 1 n cents per hundred to have its car emptied and returned to it inside of forty eight hours so they can be sent back for another load. The contract with Peavey & Co. has stood, and In addition a contract was entered Into with the Trausmlssis sippl Grain company similar to that of th Peavey contract. When Mr. Stlckney began his agitation against the payment of elevation charges at the Missouri river th t'nlon Pacific thought to strengthen its position by making the rate open and agreed to pay 1 '4 cent per hundred to all elevator which would perform the service of un loading these cars and getting them back to the Union Pacific Inside of forty-eight hours. This removed the exclusive nature of the contract and gave all elevator an even break. A cruaad was started and all other roads have stopped the psyment of elevation charges except the I'nlon Pa cific at Omaha and Kansas City and th Rock Island at Kansas City. I'nlon Pnrlfle' Attitude. Th I'nlon Pacific claim tht by the nature of it position in terminating on tho Missouri river it lias the right to pay this service for the prompt delivery of it car, it being worth that much to. get the car back immediately. Time was, not far back, when several elevations were paid. The road tired of thl Snd rut out th elevation allowance and cut th rata, which they said was th same to them. They claim It I better to hav a lower rate than to be handing back rebates a the shape of elevation allowances. It wos the announcement of the Union Pacific that it would pay the elevation allowance to all elevators performing the service which brought on thi recent rate war with the. Burlington. The Burlington reduced Its rsto and refused to pay eleva tion. This war has been settled and all is running quietly, waiting for something new to turn up. The date of the hearing has not been announced, but the Union Pacific officials say they are ready. They say they won the case before when their position was not as strong as It Is now and when the best legal talent the Bur lington and the Sart Fe could procure was engiig-d In prosecuting il,e case, which was thnr ouni.ly basin d out.
