Cattle Receipts were rather liberal for
a Friday, about 2,700 head, but the five
days' supply hss' been fully 5,000 head
smaller than a week ago. Quality was lack
ing In today's offerings and the market
waa alow and weak, as It generally Is on
Friday. Compared with a week ago the
beet cattle of all kinds an selling at very
nearly stesdy figures, but there has been
a steady decline on the general run of med
ium and common steers and cowa that
amounts to fully 25o for the week.
Business In feeders waa fairly brisk the
early part of the week, but auppllea have
been accumulating In the yards, and while
desirable weighty kinds are commanding
about the same figures as a week ago the
decline on the general run of stock cattle
and plain feeders has been fully 25c, and
In some rases more.

RAILROADS MAY ASK
AID OF GOVERNMENT
Liberty Bond Issues Monopo

Washington, Oct. 12. Reports
that the railroi-ds arc considering in
formally asking the government to
help them in some way to obtain
money with which to maintain and
enlarge their present plants and
equipment to enable them to cope
with the high tide of traffic are re
garded by officials here as forecasting
a concerted move soon toward that
What form this move will assume
apparently has not yet been decided
by the roads themselves. It is re
ported that they have under consid
eration several courses.
One possible method is renewed
petition for a general increase in
Another is to request the govern
ment to lend the railroads money on
railroad securities. For this, how
ever, special legislation would be
necessary. Other plans, details of
which have not been revealed, are said
to be under consideration.
Railroads at present are earning
very nearly as much as last year,
which marked the high tide, but
within the last two months operating
expenses have shown an increase said
to be out of all proportion to the
increase in gross leceipts.
Railroad executives say that as the
government has a practical monopoly
through Liberty bond issues of the
investment funds of the country, they
have found it almost impossible to

Honolulu, T. H., Oct 12. Graphic
details of how the famous German
commerce raider, Seeadler, which
preyed on allied commerce seven
months in the South Pacific before
meeting its fate on the reefs of Mope
ha island, passed inspection of a Brit
ish cruiser by assuming the disguise
of a lumber carrier, were revealed to
day by Captain Hador Smith, master
of the American schooner R. C.
Slade, one of the tjlree known victims
of the German craft.
After capture by the British and
subsequent escape the Seeadler put
into Bremerhavcn. a German port, and
in December, 1916, fitted out as a mo
tor schooner under command of Lieu
tenant von Luckner and a crew of
sixty-eight, half of whom, according
to Captain Smith, spoke Norwegian.
With forged Norwegian clearance
pipers and two 4-inch guns concealed
by a deckload of lumber, the vessel
put to sea, encountered a British
cruiser, passed inspection, mounted
its guns and proceeded to sink thir
teen vessels in the Atlantic, two of
them Britishers, Captain Smith said.
The final capture in the Atlantic,
was a French bark, on which 300 of
the Seeadler's prisoners were put and
sent to Rio De Janeiro. The Seeadler
escaped pursuers and rounded Cape
Horn, immediately beginning a cam
paign of destruction in the South Pa
cific. Depredations of the Seeadler, a con
verted American vessel, were an
nounced by the Navy department,

Baltimore, Oct. 11. The appoint

Washington, Oct. 12. Cardinal
Gibbons wrote President Wilson, in a
letter made public here today, that he
is trying to "persuade all Americans
that they can do the greatest good to
themselves and their country by a
cheerful and geneial performance of
their duty, as it is pointed out to them
bv lawfully constituted authority."
The letter was written on the occa
sion of the recent formation of the
League for National Unity, of which
Cardinal Gibbons is honorary chair
man. President Wilson, in reply, thanked
the cardinal for accepting the chair
manship of the league.
"In these days of the gravest prob
lems which have ever weighed upon
our American government," wrote the
cardinal, "our thoughts go out to the
chief executive, warmed by a heart
felt sympathy for the heavy burdens
of office which he must bear and
freighted with the unwavering deter
mination of loyal citizens to stand by
him in his every effort to bring suc
cess to our arms and to achieve those
ideals of justice and humanity which
compelled our entrance into the war.
No Other Course Open.
"Guided as we are by the sublime
teachings of Christianity, we have no
other course open to us but that of
obedience and devotion to our coun
try. Our divine Lord tells us 'render
to Caesar the things that are
Caesar's, and to God the things that
are God's,' and St. Paul, following
the steps of his Master, says 'Let
every soul be subject to the higher
powers, for there is no authority but
from God, and those that are, are
ordained by God. Therefore, he who
resisteth the power resisteth the or
dinance of God, and they who resist
purchase to themselves condemna
tion.' "We have been exerting our everj
effort and will continue to do so to'
persuade all Americans that they can
do the greatest good to themselves
and their country by a cheerful and
generous performance of their duty
as it is pointed out to them by law
fully constituted authority."
President Expresses Thanks.
The president wrote to the cardinal
"May Inot express my very deep
and sincere appreciation of your let
ter of October 6. It has brought me
cheer and reassurance and I want you
to know how much I appreciated your
own action consenting to preside over

New Coal Prices
Topeka, Kan., Oct. 12. Declaring
that "concerted action by retail deal
ers in advancing prices to unreason
able figures, apparently with a de
termination to ignore federal action,
is producing a lack of'confidence in
authority which must inevitably prove
injurious," Governor Capper today
sent a letter to Harry Garfield, fed
eral coal administrator, calling his at
tention to the "extremely unsatisfac
tory condition of the retail coal mar
ket in the state of Kansas."
"A careful inquiry has developed
no justification for the prices now pre
vailing," writes the governor. "Pro
longed delay on the part of the federal
government in giving our people the
relief they had expected from a situa
tion which has, become intolerable,

Ottawa, Ont., Oct. 12.-Ponfer-ences
attended by representatives of
the two major political parties re
sulted early today in the formation
of a union government under Pre
mier Sir Robert Borden, ine cau
tion, however, was threatened, when
differences developed among the lib
erals. Automobiles, ordered by Pre
mier Borden, to take the memDers oi
the ne government to the residence
of the Duke of Devonshire, governor
general, to be sworn in, were dis
missed, and it was decided not to have
the new ministers take the oath until
later in the day. .
The liberals have been brought into
the government as a consequence ot
Sir Wilfrid Lauder's attitude as to
compulsory military service.
Liberals to Improve Government.
The rlprUinn of Sir Wilfrid Laiirier
to remain at the head of the liberal
party also had an effect upon the
situation. Other liberals decided ap
parently that they could not improve
the situation by defeating the Bor
den government, and the best course
would be to go into (nongovernment
and improve it from within.
The Canadian general election will
be held in January and it is now ex
pected that the union, or national
administration of Sir Robert Borden
will be returned to power. A sub
stantial opposition, however, is ex
pected to be returned to Pariament.
The new government follows:
Liberals Sir Arthur Sifton, premier
of Alberta; T. A. Creear, representing
the wester i grain growers; J. A. Cal
der, Saskatchewan: Colonel S. C.
Mewburn, N. W. Rowell and Hugh
Guthrie, from Ontario; F. B. Cavell.

Conservatives Sir Robert Borden,

Eastern Roads to Ask
Freight Rate Increase
New York, Oct. 12. Coincident
with the announcement yesterday that
passenger trainmen on eastern rail
roads would shortly present demands
for increased wages, executives of east
ern trunk lines arranged to meet in
New York today and discuss plans for
making another plea to the Interstate
Commerce commission for higher
freight rates. The new demands of
the railway brotherhoods for more
pay will be a factor in the roads' peti
tion, itis said.
The "eastern railroads hope, it is
said, that the Western and southern
roads will also renew pleas for higher
rates. Ordinarily, applications for
rate increases arc presented separate
ly by the three districts, but in the
last case all roads joined in the peti
tion for an increase of 15 per cent in
freight rates. The Interstate Com
merce commission, in its finding last
June, refused the increase asked, but
granted increases of approximately 5
per cent of the gross revenue of the
