a modification of, the Pacific type, of
Xt1 class the road has made use for
several years, and which has been found
'very efficacious In handling the heavy
trains and maintaining the ajieed schedule
Traffic has Increased so rapidly on the
Overland that engines developing greater
power and capable of higher speed than
ever have been demanded, and this has
been ittalned by the production of a ma
chine that Is In some regards revolu
tionary. The engine is a balanced compound, the
.low pressure cylinders being on the out
side of the frame, and the high pressure
inside. Balanced cylinder valvee are used
and the Waelschnert valve rear has been
adopted. The novelty In construction Is
the coupling of the high pressure cylin
ders with the axle of the second pair of
drivers. This presents the difficulty of
passing the axle of the front pair of
'wheels, and has heen accomplished by the
bifurcation of the connecting rod. In the
form of a loop It encircles the axle of the
front pair of wheels and connects with tha
crank on the main axle. The low pres
sure cylinders are connected direct with
the main pair of drivers In the usual way,
thus presenting on the exterior no evidence
of the novelty. The Waelsohaert gear for
driving the valves will be something of a
novelty to Omaha engine men, who, fa
miliar with the device in theory, have not
yet seen I: In operation out of the Union
station. Another feature of the machines
will be the enormous tank capacity. The
Vandornljt type of tank has been aban
doned In favor of the square form, and a
water supply of 9,nno gallons will be car
ried. The coal bunkers will carry about
sixteen tons. It Is expected that these
new engines wilt handle the big Overland
trains at maximum speed with a consider
able saving both In fuel and wear on the

A WOMAN? ORDEAL
DREADS DOCTOR'S QUESTIONS
Thousands Writ to Mrs. Pink ham, Lynn,
Mm, and Receive Valuable Advlo
Absolutely Confidential and Free
There can be no more terrible ordeal
to a delicate, sensitive, refined woman
than to be oblig-ed to assurer oertaln
questions in regard to her private ilia,
even when those questions are asked
by her family physician, and many
atntinu. to Buffer rather than submit
- to examinations which so many physi
cians propose in order to intelligently
treat the disease; and this is the tea
son why so many physicians fall to
cure female disease.
This is also the reason why thousands
upon thousands of women are corresponding-with
Mrs Pinkham. daughter-in-law
of Lvdla K. Pinkham. at Lynn,
Mass. To her they can confide every
detail of their illness, and from her
great knowledge, obtained from years,
of experience in treating female ills,
Mrs. Pinkham can advise sick women
more wlselvthsn the local physician.

how I felt, I had doctored for over two rears

besides, but It all failed to do me any good. I
had female trouble and would daily have faint

"I think the general proposition of news
paper advertising will not be changed,
although some of our own lawyers sre
much In doubt ss to whether we can give
transportation for advertising. The com
mission has so far been very reasonable,
and I know of no reason for the members
now taking any ultra views on the matter
"We have everybody we can spare fiom
other work working on tariffs and are
hiring rat derm as fast as we can get
them, to try to conform with the law.
There Is nothing In the statement that we
are going to raise any rates, but, on the
other hand, we will reduce them where
we can. I think the general effect will be
to reduce the tariffs where possible."
Montana Rates Cat.
Freight rates have been reduced in Mon
tana by the Oregon Short Line, this being
the first time In ten years a railroad has
voluntarily reduced Its rates In Montana.
The reduction means X cents per 100 on
Mrst-ctass freight, and dealers In clothes,
pianos and furniture will be chiefly affected.
According to tbe table of class rates Is
sued by the Oregon Short Line road, and
which Is subject to current western classi
fication, the rates between Montana com
mon points and Missouri river common
points are as follows: First-class: Former
rate, 12.60; new rate, 11. Second-class:
Former rate, 11.15: new rate, 11.90. Thlrd
clasf : Former rate, 11.76; new rate, 11 54.
Fourth-class: Former rate, 81.60; new rate,
These rates do not apply to carload ship
ments, but the road's tables also contain
figures covering carload shipments on fifth
class stuff and A, B, C, D and E class

fering with the enlargement of the Irriga
tion canal controlled by the tri-state people.
Many defendants were at the federal build

the case. The defendants claim the purpose
of the action Is to compel' them to make
certain concessions to the tri-state com
pany as the Inheritor of the Farmers' Canal
company, which they are indisposed to
grant, and that now cornea the tri-state
company with the excuse that they want
to ahut off the water under the pretense of
enlarging the canal. Just at a time when
the owners of the water rights need the
water -for the final Irrigation of the season.
It Is farther held thst If tbe water la now

The oolllslon occurred on Seventeenth
street, opposite the new Brandels store,
where the street Is partially occupied with
building material. The runaway horse
gained considerable speed going down the
hill snd crashed Into the South Omaha

County Assessor Reed says the city and
school district tag levy rate for 1907 will
not be more than ft mills, owing to the In
creased assessment rolls. This Is I mills
less than the estimate made a few days
ago. It Includes If mills for the school
district. The 14 total levy rate for city
and schools waa H I,
Mayor Dahlman baa held up the levy
certificate, which requires bis signature be

If the sl.doo.ooa limit budget for the city
government cannot be reduced. Toward
this end ha ha called a special meeting
of the council for o'clock Saturday morn
ing to dlsouss the subject snd possibly re
consider the action taken Tuesday night
In demanding all the law allows. The
county commissioners have agreed to wait
until Saturday morning before making the
Mayer's Aetlea Batistes.
The fact that the mayor has delsyed the
certification by the city had an extremely
soothing effect upon President McCague
and other officers of the Board of Educa
tion Thursday morning. They had Just
discovered that the council had clipped
t mills from the 1 asked for the school
revenues for the year of 1907-1. The 1
mills had been added to revenues to pay
for the higher wage scale for teachers ef
fective September 1 and for a necessary
Increase in the bond redemption fund. As
the law requires the msyor and council
to follow the dictates of the board In mak
ing the levy for school purposes, board
officers gave themselves no concern about
the matter. When the resolution was
adopted Tuesday night no one paid any
particular attention to It, presuming that
the program would be carried out as an
nounced In advance.
Connell Decides oa Cat.
It was only Thursday morning that a re
porter ascertained that the council, by the
advice of Assistant City Attorney Dunn,
had decided to reduce the school district
levy by 3 mills. Mr. Dunn based his
opinion on the school law requiring the
board to certify for Its taxes In January
of each year. The board last January
certified for 13 mills, but a close perusal of
the document would have shown that It
was for the year 1906-07. Further examina
tion of the records would have revealed
that last summer the board certified ex
actly the same thing; that the certificate
afforded a basis for the city and county
authorities to make the levy of taxes now
being used, and that the duplication In
January was merely to keep within the
letter of the law. The statute says that
the certificate shall be for the "ensuing
school year." If the board waited until
next January before certifying for the
1907-08 taxes It would fall Just a year be
hind, for the levy would not be made until
August. To protect Itself, and upon legal
advice. It has followed the course of levy

Charter Changes the Cause.
The complications are all .caused by the
amendment to the charter consolidating
the city and county taxing and treasury
departments "without making" counter
amendments to the school laws.
"There is no question about our posi

Cague. "It Is necessary for us to certify

no application to the levy about to be

COIMTY LEVY SAME AH LAST YEAR
Sixteen and Foor-Tnth Mills Will
Be the Rate.
That the county levy will stand practi
cally as it was last year appeara to be
agreed upon by the county commissioners.
The present understanding Is the levy will
be 16.4 mills Instead of 16.8 mills, as it
waa last year, but owing to the increased
valuation of property this year the lower
levy will raise as much as the higher one
Commlssloney Solomon Is the only one of
the commissioners who has announced his
opposition to the plan. , Mr. Solomon wants
a reduction of at least a mill on bo In the
road and bridge funds. The levy may be
made Saturday morning.
At the meeting Saturday the commis
sioners will pass on about $176,000 In old
bills, some of which have been hanging
Ore for a year or more and almost half of
which were Inherited from the previous
board. Warrants will be Issued for these
bills, and with a balance of $46,000 In the
general fund and the transfer of Ktf.OOO
from other funds to the general fund all
but about $66,000 of these warrants can be
taken up at once. After that it will be
the policy of the commissioners to allow
bills monthly: By August 1, 1907, they be
lieve they will be able to pay bills In
curred during the month on tha first of
the month following, placing the county
practically on a cash basis..
When this Is done, they declare, the 9
mlll levy for the general fund will pay
the running expenses of the county and
the other funds can be materially reduced.
To reduce tha levy now, they point out,
would make It Impossible to pay off the
back bills and place tbe county on a
monthly payment basis. County Auditor
Smith and hla deputy, Quy Solomon, have
recently made estimates that it requires
about $276,000 each year In the general
fund to pay current expenaea. This Is,
approximately, the amount that would be
raised by a -mill levy on the present
Chairman t're of the charity committee
points out one decided advantage Of the
monthly payment plan. When the bids for
coal were called for a promise was made
to the bidders that bills would be allowed
monthly. The bid on coal for the indigent
poor by C. B. Havens A Co. was $3.73 a
ton, as against 84. 10 a ton the year before,
although coal has Increased In price. A
representative of the firm declared the low
bid waa due to the fact tha commissioners
promised to pay monthly. Some of the coal
bills to be allowed Saturday are a year
old. Where bidders expect to wait six
months or a year for their money It Is
said to be the common practlee to Increase
prices several per cent. The decrease in
the coal bid cited by Mr. L're Is about 3
The question of transferring the $'o,000
from the road, bridge and minor funds will
probably come up Saturday morning. In
case this Is done It is the Intention to re
duce the levy In the Interest sinking fund
2-10 of a mill. In the soldiers' relief fund
1-10 of a mill and either the road or the
bridge fund 1-10 of a mill. The soldiers'
relief fund has been getting $-10 of a mill,
the maximum under the law. The money
expended each year from the fund amounts
to about $1,000. With the balance now In
the fund and money rained by a HO mill
levy the fund will contain $11,000, or $3,000
more than the average yearly expenditure.
There are also good balances In the other
funds It Is proposed to reduce.

Independent of the rains In a measure, for
we' farm by Irrigation methods. Our hay,

much of the world. We are having a
little scrap with the Irrigation canal mo

against them. We hold our water rights
In perpetuity from the eld Farmers' Canal
company, although the canal has been ac
quired recently by the Trl-State Land
company. It claims that our right will
have to be reaffirmed by the Trl-State
Land company, and we are going to law
about It. The company holds out the Idea
that It wants to shut off the water from
the canal so as to enlarge it. This we
are protesting against, ss we need the
