was postponed and oHney waa called.
Attorney B. J. Burkett for tha defense
read a long list of homes of persons,
whoso notes are alleged to have been
held by the bank. Concerning certain
names that the witness did not recollect
or know, the attorney Inquired, "That
was a fictitious, person, waa It not?"
United States Attorney Howell finally
objected to thla kind of cross-examination
and Judge Toumans austalned him
on the ground that the defense in Ita

Bright and Happy
Happy youngsters must be healthy.
The' digestive organs of children get
out of order as readily as do those of
their elders, and the result Is equally
distressing. When the bowels are
clogged with an accumulation; of re

urally becomes crow and fretful from

for temper when nedlcnl attention Is
really what is needed.
The next time your child Is cross
and unhappy, without apparent rea

Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin Is a mild,
pleasant tantlng combination of sim

LINCOLN. Feb. ll.-(Speclal.)-The

modities In question. -The net result of
the greater relief Is that industries la
the Chicago and middle west section will
continue in the business ot supplying
customers on, the Pacific." . '
Mlasoari River Differential.
The order permits railroads to carry
carload freight from Chicago, Burfajo
and New York to Intermediate points 15,
26 and 35 cents higher than from Missouri
river to the same destinations and less
than carload commodity rates from Chi
cago, Pittsburgh and New York to Inter
mediate points rosy exceed those from the
Missouri river to th same, destinations
by S, 40 and K cents respectively.
Carload rates on coal and pig iron may
be less to the Pacific coast than to inter
mediate points, but the ratea on auchH
articles to the higher rated intermediate
points must not exceed 6 mills per ton
"Tha Pacific coast terminals to which
these rates will apply," says the ex plena
lion, "axe the point at which the Atlantic-
Pacific steamships deliver freight."
' It Is evident from the whole record,"
says the commission's opinion, "that
whatever may have been the degree of
competition in the past between tha rail
carriers and the water carriers aa to the
rates en these articles, concerning which
additional relief ia now sought, we are
witnessing the beginning of a new era of
transportation between the Atlantic and
the Pacific coasts. ,
Baals sf Cssiaiulss Opinion.
"To secure any considerable percentage
of this coast-lo-coaat traffic ratea on
many commodities must be established
by (he rail lines materially lower than
those now existing. As we view It, the
Panama canal is to be one of the agencies
of transportation between the east and
the west, but not necessarily the sole car
rier. If the railroads ars able to make
such ratsa from the Atlantic seaboard to
the pacific coast as will hold to their
lines some portion of this traffic with
profit to themselves, the should be per
mitted to 'do so. The acceptance of thla
traffts will add something , to the net
revenues and to as extent decrease and
not increase the burden that must be
borne by other traffic, it will also give
the shippers at the coast points tha bene
fits of sa sddltlonal and a competitive
We are of tha opinion that these car
riers should be permitted to compete for
this Jong-distance traffic so long as It
may be secured st rates which clearly
cover the out-f-pocket coat."
The commission says thai few, if any,
of tha intervening interests really op
posed the petition of .the carriers, but
that the intermountain territory pro
tested. The commission suggests that the rail
roads themselves readjust the so-called
"back haul" rates from the Pacific coast
to pobtte Inland.
