Commissioners After Inspection aad
Hearing; of Interested Parties
Call for tha Maps and Does
snente la the Case.
The question of whether the Chicago
Great Western railroad shall be required
to construct a croanlrg under Its tracks at
Woodbury avenue now rests with the State
Railroad eommswioners, who visited the
place yesterday and made a thorough in
vestigation of the controversy.
The three commissioners, D. J. Palmer
of Washington. W. L. Baton of Osage and
N. S. Ketchum of MarshaUtown, were con
voyed to the Woodbury avenue crossing by
special train, placed at their disposal by
the railroad company. Accompanying the
commissioners were Chief Engineer C.
Chadburn, Assistant Genera Attorney J.
L. Krdall, Division Superintendent Shipley,
Trainmaster K S. Bourne and Hon. C. G.
Saunders, local attorney of the Great West
ern; City Ensrlneer Klmbnll. City Solicitor
Kimball and Councllmen Wallace, Maloney,
Younkerman and Smith.
At the crossing the party were met by a
number of interested citizens and residents
of that vlclnty, who seek the construction
of the creasing under the tracks. After
the commissioners had made an Inspection
of the place the party adjourned to the
Woodbury Avenue achoolhouse, where the
commissioners listened to arguments pro
and con.
One of the principal witnesses was Rich
ard James, who has the contract from the
Board of Education for driving the school
children from the nelghbohood dally to and
from the Third Street school. Mr. James
said he regarded the crossing as dangerous
because It was Impossible to see trains un
til they were close, and difficult to hear
the bells or whistles. The bells and whistles
of engines In the neighboring yards of the
Rock Island and Milwaukee, he eaid, caused
eonfuslon at times. N. P. Dodge and Rev.
O, G. Rice told of the depreciation of prop
erty In that vicinity, due, as they declared,
to the dangerous crossing. Woodbury ave
nue had formerly, they said, been a popular
driveway, but nobody drove there now ex
cept those compelled to because of the
dangerous character of the railroad cross
ing. On their return to the city the commis
sioners were given a practical demonstra
tion of the character of the crossing by the
train being run at different speeds across it.
The commissioners were entertained at
lunch at the Grand hotel by the officers of
the Commercial club, and in the afternoon
were taken on a special train to view the
Wabash bridge over Mosquito creek. They
left for their respective homes in the even
ing. As the commissioners called for estimates,
plans, profiles, etc., their decision in the
matter of the Woodbury avenue crossing
Is not looked for at a very early date.

Does Hot Relish a Three-Year Term
fa the Penitentiary.
"You've got a lot of sympathy for a
fellow, you have," said Roy Green to
Judge Wheeler as the latter In district
court yesterday morning sentenced him to
three years In the penitentiary for the
theft of an overcoat last February from
the store of the John Bcno company.
"That will do," commanded the court,
but Green kept muttering some unlntelll
glble remarks until Deputy Sheriff Gron
eweg stepped over to him and told him
to keep still. Green, who up to this point
had been defiant, then resumed his seat
and commenced to weep.
When brought before Judge Wheeler for
sentence Green pleaded hard for a light
sentence and made all sorts of promises
that If the court would be lenient with
him he would try to do better in the fu
ture. He admitted he had never attempted
to earn an honest living and that he had
been convicted of larceny four times in
this state and had served a term In the
Nebraska state penitentiary at Lincoln,
having been committed from Washington
Under the "common thief law the court
could have sentenced Green to seven years
and so informed him.
Green Is regarded as a dangerous crim
inal by the authorities and he had been
kept In a separate cell at the county Jail.
When Deputy Sheriffs McCaiTery and
Woolman went to the county Jail to bring
Green Into court they were unable to un
lock the door to his cell. The lock had
been tampered with, but by whom was
not learned. Green denied having any
hand in it and claimed he did not know
that anyone had. It was found necessary
to saw the bars on the door in order to
get Green out so that he could be taken
Into court.
William Rolph, who was convicted of
breaking and entering Hoage's drug store
on Lower Broadway on the night of Feb
ruary 2, was also sentenced by Judge
Wheeler to three years In the Fort Madi
son penitentiary.
Prior to the passing of sentence on
Green and Rolph, Judge Wheeler over
ruled their motions for new trials.

Eirmril from AerTlnar on Case Against
Standard OH.
The empaneling of a Jury In the district
court yesterday to try the personal In
Jury damage suit of Axel Ehlers against
H. A. Larsen, proprietor of the Manhattan
saloon and restaurant, and the Standard
OH company developed th. fact that sev
eral of the members of the petit Jury
panel had scruple, about serving In the
case on account of the fact that the Stand
ard Oil company was one of the defend
ants. D. F. Dryden, a former member of
the Board of County Supervisors, declared
he was prejudiced from the fact that hi.
brother had been employed by the company
for forty years and for the further reason
that he firmly believed that the founda
tion of the country rested on corporations.
John Wallace was another Juror who was
prejudiced, but unlike Juror Dryden,
against the Standard Oil company. He said
with apparent sincerity that he once
bought a gallon of coal oil and the stove
blew up. A third member of the panel said
he thought he ought to be excused because
of the fact that forty years ago he knew
John D. Rockefeller In Pennsylvania when
the present millionaire wa. but a poor boy.
The three were excused.
Ehlers was burned by the explosion of
gasoline In the basement of the Manhattan
building last June. It was alleged that the
driver of the Standard OH company',
wagon had filled the big tank In the base
ment to overflowing and this was pri
marily the cause of the explosion.
The case wa. completed last evening and
the Jury brought In a sealed verdict about
f O'clock.

The Value and Importance ol Ethical Remedies.
Remedies which physicians sanction for family use, as they act most beneficially and
are gentle yet prcmpt in effect, and called ethical, because they are of
Known Excellence and Quality and ol Known Component Parts.
To gain the full confidence of the Well-informed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known to and
approved by them, and, therefore, the California Fig Syrup Company has published for many
years past in its advertisements and upon every package a full statement thereof. The per
fect purity and uniformity of product which they demand in a laxative remedy of an ethical
character are assured by the California Fig Syrup Company's riginal method of manufacture,
known to the Company only.
TJiere. are oer ethical remedies approved by physicians, but the product of
the California F'ig Syrup Company possesses the advantage over all other family laxatives
that it cleanses, sweetens and relieves the internal organs on which it acts, without
disturbing the natural functions or any debilitating after effects and without having to
increase the quantity from time to time.
This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs, and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are well
known to physicians and the Well-informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the rriore elaborate name of Syrnp of Figs and Elixir of
tini' " more fulIy descriPtive of the remedy, but doubtlessly it will always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs; and to get its beneficial effects,
always note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co.
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call for Svrup
a If- r by the ul1 name' Syrup of Fi8s and Elixir of Senn Syrup of Figs
and Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fir
Syrup Company, and the same heretofore known by the name, Syrup of Figs, which
has given satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists
throughout the United States in original packages of one size only, the regular price .
of which is fifty cents per bottle.
Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C, the remedy is not adulterated or mis
branded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.

Without a Contest.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DEB MOINES, April 15. (Special.)
Insurance men today urged Governor
Cummins to veto the bill limiting the
profits of Insurance stock companies. The
bill forbids the payment of dividends in
excess of 8 per cent In any one year. One
of the strongest grounds urged against
tbe bill Is the claim that It Is unconstitu
tional. I. M. Earle, an attorney repre
senting various Insurance Interests, ap
peared before the governor this morning
at the time set for a hearing and arguod
against the bill and urged the governor
to veto It. F. M. Hubbell of the Equitable
of Iowa and Nat Coffin, an attorney for
Insurance companies, also urged against
the bill. It Is asserted by the Insurance
men that the bill is unfair to the Iowa
companies because It cannot be enforced
against the companies organized outside
of the state. It is contended, furthermore,
that the bill will Impair contracts by
limiting the capacity of a company to
cav Drofits on Investments made. The
bill has a sliding scale of restrictions, the
larger companies being limited more than
the smaller ones.

may not get his pardon from life Im
prisonment in the penitentiary. He was
convicted of murder In Dallas county. The
legislature passed a resolution recom
mending his "parole." The statutes do
not say anything about "paroles" for life
sentence murders. It says that the ap
plications for "pardons" must be sub
mitted by the governor to the legisla
ture. The legislature has not recom
mended a pardon, but a parole. The tech
nicality Is more than a trivial one, and
there U some question whether the gov
ernor will Issue the "pardon," which Is
what the legislature meant to give him
It Is believed that the governor will Issue
tha pardon unless he considers the error
of such grave Importance as to make a
pardon illegal.

Growth la bacaward aad Dane
It Is Reported, with Some
WASHINGTON, April 18.-The European
crop report of the Department of Agricul
ture covering conditions abroad up to April
1. says the heavy snow which fell last
winter over the greater part of Europe has,
excepting In parts of Russia and of the
Balkan states, almost everywhere disap
peared. That the protection afforded to
winter cerceals has been pretty generally
efficacious Is being demonstrated by the
vigor which the plants In most cases seem
to be responding to the quickening In
fluences of spring. The report continues:
"In western Europe the exceptionally cold
winter has probably had no deleterious ef
fect upon vegitatlon sufficient to effect gen
eral results of the harvest In central
Europe the growth generally is in a less
advanced state and knowledge of actual
conditions less positive; the winter wheat
crop of Germany ia known to have suffered
to a quite appreciable extent and recent
news vaguely Indicates damage to the
autumn sown crop of Austria and Hungary.
The local reports from Russia scarcely war
rant generalization, but In the spectflo dis
tricts to which the report relate the crops,
with few exceptions, seem to hava wintered
"A characteristic feature of vegitatlon
common this season to most of the
European states, Is backwardness of
growth, due to the severe winter and tardi
ness of spring, but up to the present this
has not been considered, so for as winter
cereal are concerned, a cause for com
plaint. "Activity In the preparation for and the
accompaniment of spring seeding Is fairly
universal. In western parts of southern
Europe the work has advanced well toward
completion. But In central Europe. Russls
and parts of the Balkan states a belated
spring has caused bad starts generslly to
be made In agricultural work and the need
for milder, more settled weather Is beoom
Ing acute." on Telephone Commission.

As every part of the body is dependent on the blood for nourishment
and strength, it ia necessary that this vital fluid be kept free from germs,
impurities and poisons. As long as it remains vncontaminated we are for
tified against disease and health is assured; but any humor or impurity acta
injuriously on the system and affects the general health, or culminates in
some special blood disease. Pustular eruptions, pimples, rashea and tbe
different skin affections show that the blood is in a feverish and diseased
condition as a result of too much acid, or the presence of some irritating
humor. Sores and Ulcers are the result of morbid, unhealthy matter in the
blood, and Rheumatism, Catarrh, Scrofula, Contagious Blood Poison, etc.,
are all deep-seated blood diseases that continue to grow worse as long as the
impurity or poison remains in tbe circulation. Some persons are born with
an hereditary taint in the blood and we see the effect manifested in various
ways The skin has a pallid, waxy appearance, the eyea are weak, glands
in the neck often enlarged and usually the body is cot fully developed or
strong, because it baa always been fed on weak, impure blood. In all blood
troubles S. S. 8. has proved itself a perfect remedy. It goes down into th
circulation and removes all poisons, humors, waste or foreign matter, an4
makes this stream of life pure and health-sustaining. Nothing reaches)
inherited blood troubles like 8. 8. 8.; it removes every particle of taint,
purifies and strengthens the weak, deteriorated blood, supplies it with the
healthful properties it needs and establishes the foundation for good health.

with a company of Ohio National Guard.
The postmaster accordingly has been notl-
fled to have Captain A. F. Gove and Ber- '
geant Phlnney either return to work Im
mediately or resign their positions.
Investigation ha led the department to
the conclusion that no suoh conditions there
exist to warrant the absence of these
men from the postofflce doing military
duty. Mr. Hitchcock said today that It re
peatedly had been decided by the law offi
cers of the government that the prompt dis
tribution of mall cannot be Interfered with
for any reason whatsoever. The Postofflce
department maintains that none of Its em
ployes should belong to the National Guard
for this reason. In this case, tho post
master reported that four of his employes
are out with th militia company and that'
the business of his office Is being seri
ously hampered. Two of the men returned
to work in response to the demand of the
postmaster, but Captain Gove and Sergeant
Phlnney declined to do so.
