Commission Extends Charges East of
River to All Territory West, Ex
cept Portions"-of Black Hills.
PIERRB, 8. D., Fob. 4 (Special.)
After hearings at numerous places
ovet the state for several months past,
the State Railway commission, at Its meet
ing here today, announced the Schedule of
freight ratea fixed by It as equitable for
this state. The complaints have been the
strongest from that section of the state
west of the Missouri river, where a differ
ent rate prevailed than that In effect east
of the stream. Following the hearings the
commission has framed a complete list of
schedules on all classes of freight ship
ments on a mileage basis, and while all
the different percentages of change have
not yet been worked out by the depart
ment, the rata which the commission has
ordered to be put in force on March
10 will bring material relief to the
people west of the Missouri, If it is ac
cepted by the roads as a rate under whfch
they can work. If not. It means another
suit on the part of the state. . .
In general terms, the changes which
have been announced by the commission
continue the ratea which have been tn ef
fect east of the Missouri Into 'that part
of the state west of tha stream, with the
exception of the roads through the moun
tainous section of the Black Hills, covering
a part of the Northwestern system, the
Burlington system in the hills, and the
Crouch line. While this rate applies to
shipments ln general, coal and coarse
grains are given a commodity rate of their
own. The roads are also allowed to charge
an arbitrary of one cent a hundred
pounds ln car lots, and two cents a nun
dred In smaller shipments when they
cross a bridge on the Missouri river
As an indication of what the changes
are, taken on a basis of 150 mile ship
ments, they show by classes, per hundred

of the Jury.
The verdict was handed In to Coroner
Holtxhauser early today after six hours
of deliberation by the Jury. The verdict
aa rendered serves to exonerate Albert
Seagroatt. the engineer of the train which
ran off the end of a track and caused a
break in a gas pipe, and he was released
from custody. He was arrested at the
time of the explosion and had been paroled
to await th Inquest. It waa said that
difference of opinion among th Jurors
waa due principally to the fact that some
of thern thought the pipes in the yard were
not properly protected.

of the board of coroners, has been sitting,

At 10 o'clock this morning the mayor of
Juarea ordered all places of business
closed. American and Other foreign flags
were at once put out by the foreign resi
dents. The consuls had not had any notice
of an attack, bet the mayor declined to
say why he issued the closing order.
All races have been called off at th
Juares track until conditions change.
Consuls in Juarez have not yet been ad
vised that the town Is to be bombarded.

messages to consuls was captured yester

City Prnctiealy Depopulated.
Cludad Juarez, across the river from
here, Is practically depopulated, the resi
dents having fled to this city ln fear of an
attack from Insurrectos. The Mexican
postofflce and two branch banks In Jaures
were closed laat night after all the money
and records haa been brought her for
Federal soldiers, acting under orders,
took desperate measures yesterday to
check the approach of the Insurrectos.
The Fourteenth cavalry waa sent out to
dynamite the tracks of the Mexican Cen
tral railway, over which a train waa
traveling northward toward Juares, loaded
The train bearing the Insurrectos ran
over a mine of dynamite, which exploded,
shattering one of the coaches, but It Is
not known Just how many persona wer
killed. The coal passer on the engine waa
blown to pieces, but th engineer, sus
pecting danger, leaped and waa only
slightly hurt. The engine passed over th
charge . of explosives and was not badly
A battle between the Fourteenth cavalry
nd the Insurrectoa raged for several
hours. Thirty-two federal cavalrymen are
believed to have been killed, the estimate
being based upon the number of riderless
cavalry horses which strayed Into Juarex
today. Six insurrectoa wer killed. Many
were wounded on both sides.
Residents of this city and the few who
are left In Juarex wer aroused tonight
by a neavy detonation and Immediately
the attack on Juares waa being proclaimed.
Investigation devoleped that th Henry
Soggerman powder house, two and a half
miles south of Juares, containing quan
tities of powder and dynamite, was ahot
off by Mexican officers, to keep th In
surgents from capturing it. Two Amer
icana, who were walking along th Mex
lean tracks to Join the rebels, are be
lieved to have been killed.
For the purpose of ascertaining the
whereabouts of th Insurrectora, a party
of four newspaper men zrom ki raso,
made a trip this afternoon to the scene
of today' battle ln an automobile. The
party consisted of William P. Caraxes,
Mason Hale, Yxabella Conteras and A. N.
Describing the scene tonight, Caraxei
"We found two insurrectoa, one federal
soldier and th coal passer of th wrecked
engine, dead. W found a human heart,
a number of human arms and other frag
ments of human bodies scattered around
the wrecked train.
"Th train had slowed down before
striking the dynamite and th insurrectos
aboard, suspecting a trap, began to dis
embark. All had left th train before
the explosion and not on of them waa
killed by th dynamite.
There waa no living person In sight
when w reached th seen this afternoon,
but In a few minutes another train carry
ing fighting men cam up. Th men
greeted us in a friendly manner.
"Captain Manuel R. ndana waa In
charge of the Insurrectoa, 1641 men from
Oroxco's command. Captain Andana said
that Orozco with 600 men waa Just two
miles behind and that 600 more men wer
coming from th weat and would Join
Orozco tonight An advance on Juarez
would follow Immediately.

PAINFUL & DAI, G D US
Rheumatism ia due to a diseased
condition of the blood cells and cor
puscles, brought about by an excess
of uric acid in tlio circulation. It is
not only a very painful disease but an
extremely dangerous trouble. The
briny, acrid state of the blood gradu
ally forms a coating over the muscles,
and by depositing a cement-like 8ub
stance in the joints frequently terrnt
natet; fatally, or leaves its victim a
hopeless cripple. It is natural to
"doctor " the spot that hurts, and it is
quite right to use liniments, hot appli
cations, etc., to get temporary relief
from a painful joint or swollen tendon;
but Rheumatism is not a f kin disease,
and such thinjrs, when depended on
alone make one careless, and the dis
ease gets a firmer hold on the blood.
S. S. S. cures the disease because it ia
the greatest of all blood purifiers. It
goes into the cir
culation, and re
particle of the
acid, builds up
makes it . rich
and oily, and in
this tvay pre
pares it for the
proper nounsnment ol all joints,
-r'tniisple. nerves and liortea. If vott
have Rheumatism, get the uric acid
out of the blood by taking S.S. S., a
purely vegetable medicine, and enjoy
freedom from its misery. Book on
