U1LL WILL FIGHT FOR WHEAT
Determined on Wresting: Traffic from

Wheat la to be one of the big revenue
troriu:rrs cf the Colorado ft Southern
lnn it Is turned over to Mr. Hill If the
Minnesota magnate's plana rarry. And
this will be new business for Hill, business
which for years haa been slipping: away
from him Into the hands of E. It. Harri
man, although It oitglnated In what it
termed Hill territory'.
It la aald the determination of Hill to
wreat thl traffic from Harriman Is one
of the reasons lor the purchase of the Colo
rado & Southern by the Burlington. Thia
business la estimated to be worth between
$5,010,000 and $8,000,000 in traffic annually
and thia the Southern Pacific and Ita con
nertlona have been literally taking out of
Hill territory. '
Ona of the main Hems of tonnage which
tha Hill Unas have for years been losing
because ef no gulf connections is no less
than JO.OW.000 bushels of wheat, the carry
ing' of which would pay a good dividend on
the stock of the newly acquired Hill line.
The eleven slates and terrltorlea west of
the Rockies are annually producing about
tti.OM.OUO Surplus bushels of wheat, moat of
which la grown In Washington, Idaho, Ore
gon and California. About 36.000,000 bushels
of this surplus leaves the country via the
Pacific coast porta. Hill recures the big
end of the 30.000,000 bushels which goes
from the Puget Bound ports. Of the bal
anoe 13,000,000 leaves from the Oregon ports
and about 2,000,000 bushels from Ban Fran
cisco. This loaves about 30,000,000 to seek
an outlet through the gulf ports, bound for
South America and Europe. Although most
of this Is grown In Hill territory it haa
been escaping Mr, Hill and has been moved
to the gulf porta by Mr. Harriman. Hill was
handicapped by not having a line through
Denver by reason of which he was not in
a position to control the rates. Now It will
be different and, 'with Hill In control of
the Colorado & Southern, he will be In a
position to wrest some of this business
back from Harriman.
NEW ROUTE TO NATIONAL PARK

In the campaign of railroad building
which James J. Hill Is about to undertake
In Wyoming to Included the Improvement
of new route Into the National park, a
route which, la now practically completed.
The new reute Is a coaching road from
Cody Into tha park and most of the work
la now done.
To assist In hauling material to the big
Bhoshone dam ..the . government has con
structed a rock road from Cody to the
government dam, which Is nearlng comple
tion.' But short stretch of road remains
from the end of the government road to
the edge of the park, where the govern
ment already maintains splendid roads, and
this abort stretch will be built by Big Horn
county and a campaign started by the Hill
lines to Induce people to enter the park
in this direction.
Indications now are that the giant granite
structure which the government la build
ing will be completed enough to hold the
flood water from the melting snows of the
Rockies this summer and then the govern
ment road will be ready for travel.
Although Hill will build a second line
acroe- Wyoming, It will not be completed
this-summer. In time for the heavy travel
- which Is sure to result from Increased pros
perity and because of the Seattlo exposi

. 'About a year ago an itching humor
began to appear around the back of my
hand. It atarted in to spread, and
pretty soon it ouvered both rny hands
and get up over my wnsta aiid even
vp to the elbows. The itching and
burning were terrible. Mr bands got
all scaly and when I scratched, as 1
was doing a good part of the time, tha
surface would be covered with blisters
and then get raw. The eczema got so
bad in around tha pit of my thumbs
that I could not . move tha thumbs
without dorp cracks appearing. I went
to my doctor, but his medicine could
only atop tha itching and did not seam
to heal my bands up at aU. At night
1 suffered so fearfully that I could not
sleep, often lying awake until well toward
morning, then waking up still tired.
I had to give up my place, as my hands
were so terrible to look at that they
did not like to have me around about
the food. I could not bear to touch
them with water, but' when I positively
had to get my hands clean I would rub
them with oil.
"This sort of business went on for
three months and I kept trying si no

with no particular benefit. I did not
know what to do, for 1 was fairly worn

kept asking me why I didn't use t'uti

CATTLEMEN ARE IN TROUBLE
Cans; of Ten Acenaed of Making;
llalds on Sheepmen's
NEW CASTLE, Wyo.. Jan. 6. (Special.)
That one gang of ten determined men,
bent on driving sheep from a section of
country which they desired for use aa range
for cattle and horses, were able to prevent
publicity for an astonishing and daring
series of Incendiary outrages extending
through two months, has Just come to light
as a result of the arrest ef nine prominent
ranchmen of Crook county, and one ranch
employe, who are accused of being respon
sible for the destruction of much property
belonging to tha Gutherie Sheep company,
a large concern operating In Crook county.
In the northeastern corner of the state.
The men charged with the series of crimes
are Ike, Andy and Sam McKean. D. W.
Moebarger, George Martin, Stanley Baugh,
J. D. Mulholland, Henry Zlmmerachled
and M. Squires. All but the letter are
ranch ownera. Squires haa been employed
The arreat of the ten men waa made by
Sheriff Farrell and Joseph LeFors. the man
who ran down Tom Horn, and resulted
from detective work by the two officers
extending through several weeks. It Is said
that confessions have been obtained from
Squires, Martin and one of the others, and
that these confessions establiah that the
ten defendants were responsible for the
August 81: Burning of house, barn and
sheep wagon at the Berry ranch, and a
house at the Carter ranch.
October 1: Burning of sheep wagon on
October J: Burning of 100 tons of hay
at the Schues ranch.
November 4: Burning of two houses at
the Berry ranch.
November 7: Burning of twenty tons at
hay at the Hulett ranch.
Ail of the property destroyed was owned
by the Gutherie Sheep comrany and was
situated In the disputed district, which
lies between Sundance snd Moore raft. On
November 7 a mile and a half of fence, be
lieved by the gang to belong to the sheep
company, but owned by a ranchman named
Moore, waa also destroyed.
The confessions all agree that the ten
men met on the night of Auguat 1 at the
Mo sparger school house and there, the only
light being that cast from the chinks of
the stove, they entered into a solemn pact
to drive the Gutherie Sheep company out
of business and to kill any of their number
who should betray their operations. The
raids of the night of August 31 were par
ticipated In by all ten conspirator, but
those on later dates were performed by
men especially selected from their number
to carry out there outrages.

(Continued from First Page.)
In attendance at the senile opening. Sec
retary of State Junkln called the house to
order and Lieutenant Governor Hopewell
presided In the senate.
In the house Rev. I. F. Roach delivered
the ' Invocation, and In the course of hla
prayer he petitioned that If economy needs
be practiced that the educational Institu
tions and the state's wards be not made
to suffer thereby.
Clyde Barnard, who for so msny years
has acted as chief clerk for republican leg
islatures, called the roll, after which party
lines were divided and Henry of Holt re
ceived the democratic vote for speaker pro
tern and Nettleton of Clay the republican
vote. ' ' , ' t ' -
In taking the chair Mr. Henry assured
the house that while he had been ambi
tious to fill the chair he waa entirely sat
isfied with the honor which had been con
ferred upon him and he Individually ex
pected to work for the enactment of lawa
which would be for the best Interests of
the entire state, and though men might dif
fer from him on certain Questions, he hon
ored no man less for this were he honest

' The permanent organisation waa affected
by the election of the caucus selections:
C. W. Pool of Johnson, speaker; Trenmore
Cone of Wahoo, chief clerk; A. D. Evans
of Richardson county, sergeant-at-arma,
and Rev. H. M. Warfleld of Lincoln, chap
lain. The oath waa administered to the mem
bers by Chief Justice Reese of the supreme
court, after which all signed the oath.
The first committee appointed In the
house was that on credentials, as follows:
Clark of Richardson, Bowman of Nuckolls,
.Klllen of Gage, Stoecker of Douglas and
Taylor of Custer. Mr. Henry ahowed his
generous nature In the appointment of this
committee, for while the motion railed for
only five, he appointed six, and thus cared
for another defeated candidate for speaker.
Kelley of Furnas, Wilson of Polk and

Senate Geta Vnder Way.
Six spectators In the gallery and probably
fifty persona lesning over the lobby rail
watched the beginning of proceedings In
the senate as Lieutenant Governor Hope
well called the members to order three
minutes after 13 o'clock today. A sudden
drop In temperature , frosted the window
panes of the senste chamber, but there
waa no chill within the room, not even In
the mien of the minority of republicans,
who accepted their fate with cheerful coun
tenances and were by no means less alert
than In the many previous sessions, when
they controlled the organisation.
Even at this It fell to the lot of a re
publican senator to make the first motion
of the session, after prayer by Elder O.
W. Martin of Lincoln. After the presiding
officer had called the members to order
with F. D. Corrlck. reading clerk of the
last session, at the clerk's desk, the chair
announced the appointment of a committee
on credentials In order. A pause followed,
when Wilts of Cedar moved the selection
of the thTee members needed. This was
seconded by Ketchum of Thayer and car
ried by acclamation. Messrs. Wlltse, Howell
of Douglas and Henry of Colfax consti
tuted the personnel.
Eleven members of tha senate had for
gotten their credentials, according to the
report of ha committee submitted after a
brief recess. They were Majors of Ne
maha, Ransom and Howell of Douglas,
Thompson of Cuming, Hatfield of Antelope,
Donohoe of Holt, Miller of Lancaster,
Bartos of Saline, eKtchum of Thayer, Besse
of Webster and Gammlll of Frontier.
The recommendation of the committee
was that the entire membership be seated,
there being no contests and the fact of
the election being apparent. To this Ran
dall of Madison demurred, claiming the
stenographer had made an error In hla
case and that his credentials were in with
the rest. Without further correction of the
list, however, on suggestion of Mr. Wlltse,
the report of the committee was adopted
and the thirty-three senators were seated.
The democrats were alive to their duty

of resolutions that did not cease utll the
senate was duly organised.
A committee conslsltn got Ransom of
Douglas, Majors of Nemaha and Besse
of Webster was named to call upon the su
preme court and Invite one of the Justices
to administer the oath. Chief Justice R ese
responded and the senators, standing with
uplifted hands, went through the consti
tutional form, signing the written oath
after the verbal form had been taken.
"Henry of Colfax moved that a committee
of three on rulea be appointed consisting
of Ransom of Douglas, Bartos of Saline
and Donohue of Holt,, which waa agreed to,
following which Chairman. Ransom of the
committee proposed the - adoption of the
rules of the last session- of the senate with
the provision that an additional committee
of five members be named on TSralnage.
The rules. It was specified, shall be ef

Mr. Ransom followed with a motion for
the appointment of a committee on stand

GOSSIP OF LEGISLATIVE LOBBIES
Thomas of Douglas Connty Mlsaes
Chance to Name New Speaker.
(By a Staff Correspondent.)
Thomas of Douglas county had an op
portunity to name the speaker In the cau
cus last night, bat failed to tako advantage
of It. Pool of Richardson county on the
fifteenth ballot had thirty-four votes and
the name of Thomas was called. He waa
besieged by the Douglas delegation to
switch from Clark to Pool. He hesitated,
then while consulting Clark the roll went
on and Thomas missed his opportunity.
On the final ballot which elected Pool
Thomas and Butts failed to vote for the
successful candidate, though the other
seven members got Into the bandwagon.
Henry of Holt, tha defeated candidate for
speaker, Is a very religious man. Last
Sunday while the other candidates were
gathered In the hotel lobbies soliciting
votes and fixing up combinations, Mr.
Henry went off by himself and spent a
quiet day, his own friends and backers
not knowing where he was. He refused to
work for hla election on Sunday.
Elmer E. Thomas of Omaha, who wrote
the letter about Governor Sheldon a few
days before election and then followed It
up with an apology after the damage had
been done, admitting he waa wrong, was
In the lobby this morning looking on.
The Douglas delegation has been laugh

exploit of last night. The captain had a
man In mind for sergeant-at-arms of the
house. He rose In the caucus to present
his name In a magnificent effort at oratory
and then came the climax. "I refer gentle

form Mr. lieltzer said he stood for "eco

The members were not sure whether this
short session meant dally short sessions or
less than a sixty-day session. So Mr.
Beltzer got out hia explanation last nlglit
previous to the caucuH and that Is prob
ably what defeated him. He said:
"I meant by short session that the legis

My life Is devoted to the practice o my
specialty, which Is the curing ef Rup
ture. I do not have to renort to mpro
fesalonal methods to Induce a patient to
fdaoe himself under my care, but should
Ike to have every ruptured person aa pa
tients If they will oame to me on a
strictly professional basla, although If I
have to offer any Inducement other than
my ability, skill and suceeasful experi
ence, I prefer to have them go to sums
one slse. 1 am Independent in my prac
tice, because my ethics is the simple one
of Uie Golden Rule. I believe medical
ethics, like all other professional or so
cial ethtos, should b measured by but
one standard. J&tt SQUARE!
I am always willing to counael with
specialists, aa well as with family doc
tors of any school. Any ruptured pel son
is invited to bring his physician with him
when bs visits my consultation rooms.
It Is a pleasure tor me to explain my
methods to ths doctor who can compre
hend and appreciate them. Then I ran
show their practical application aod treat
ment of his tlenl cave. I do not
claim any wonderful or secret method,
bat I have originated more auocessful
ideaa for the cure of rupture without a
surgical operation than I have ever
aduptad from others. The best treatment
Is none too good, ns matter whether it Is
a mild er complicated case I)n not be
come a victim ef nsglect. DECIDE!
Just make ap yvur mind to corns
to me at once. Tour health, strsrsth
and freedom from worry can be se
cured only by doing your part; that
la. to come here, where I oan give
yeu personal professional servlee. 1
wish to Impress upon your mind
that I have a certain cure for rupture
without resorting to a painful and uncer
tain surgloal operation. I am tha only
reputable physician In this line of work
who sustains a high bank rating that will
take sunn cases for treatment upon a
guarantee to cure, or make no cuaigs.
Tou may deposit the money In a bank
la this city In your own bum, and whan
you are satisfied a ours haa been mad
you then Instruct the bank to pay the
money to me. By doing this you are ab
solutely oertaln of a cure, or It will coat

of my work I com Id not do business In
this way very long, bat Instead have been
