This change in the ministry is the cul

course of -which the Chamber of Deputies
was the scene of frequent -wild disor

upon General Andre. These events stirred
the public to a high pitch of excitement,

General Andre reached the decision to
resign only this morning, and immediately
dispatched a letter to Premier Combes.
The text of this letter, -which was given
out tonight, asserts that the attacks
against the War Office -were " merely a
device of the enemies of the government
to undermine the republic
Premier Combes laid the letter before
the Cabinet meeting this afternoon, and
an agreement was speedily arrived at to
invite M. Berteaux to succeed General
Andre. The Premier presented M. Ber

DENIES BATES ARE EXORBITANT
Railroad Official Refutes Statements
CHICAGO, Nov. 15. Today, at the In
terstate Commerce Commission Investi
gation of the flght between the Texas
Cattle Raisers' Association and the
Southwestern railroads, John A. Munroe,
freight traffic agent of the Union Pacific
Railroad, gave interesting testimony. He
"A heavy drain is expected where the
railroads have to compete with them
selves on different lines of traffic. Either
corn in the corn belt must be carried to
the cattle on the Western ranges, or the
cattle carried to the corn. Of course,
we try to do the former as much as pos
sible, for it cuts down the expenses, but
the low rates that have been forced by
competition make it so much more profit
able for the cattlemen to bring the cat
tle to the corn that we find it" practically
Impossible to carry much corn west. In
this way we are competing with our
line's low rate on cattle." -Mr.
Munroe was Questioned closely re
gardlng the existing rates and the profits
to the company.
"Our rates are fixed by the applying
of common commercial and traffic rules
to the particular commodity In question,"
said the witness. "The complaint is that
extortionate and excessive rates have
been charged and all sorts of abuse prac
tlced, but the fact that men are at this
cattleralsing and shipping business year
in and year out and still seem to have
money for the purpose of carrying it on
is some indication that conditions are not
unbearable. As far as these rates being
extortionate are concerned, I can say
that in most cases they are not even
Further questioning brought out the
statement that the rate on livestock from
Cheyenne to Omaha is 29 cents for 100
pounds, and that on a solid train of 40
cars the company would receive 32400.
Mr. Munroe further stated that livestock
was handled at a lower profit to the
railroad company than nearly any other
kind of freight.
"Do you consider $2400 too little for one
train, operated by one engineer and crew,
xrom uneyenne to umana? ' asKea com
"We never have a solid stock train of
that size, but if we did we might afford
to handle them at that rate."
"But," objected Mr. Prouty, "what' dif
ference does it make whether the train
is composed of ten cars of cattle and the
remainder some other kind of freight.
which you say yourself Is more profit
Mr. Munroe then went into a techni
cal explanation of the problems Involved
In the handling of livestock, but the
commission was not satisfied and he was
kept on the stand the greater part of
Commissioner Prouty said tonight ho
had no hope of closing up the case at
this session. The investigation will be
continued tomorrow morning.
BIG CANALS APPEAR ASSURED
Prussian Diet Votes for Project of
Kaiser It Once Rejected.
BERLIN, Nov. 15. Bmneror Will
lama extensive canal project, rejected
to the Persian Diet in 1899 and 1901,
are to be realized in part at least The
canal committee of the Diet, composed
of the leaders of the parties controlling
tne JJiet, nas decided to support the
measures lor canals connecting Han
over with the Rhine and the canaliza
tion of the Wezer from Hamoln down
ward, provided Bremen will bear part
of the expense. The canal uses about 60
miles of the existing Dortmund-Ems
Canal and will have two outlets Into
the Rhine, one from the present termi
nus of the Dortmund-Ems Canal to
Ruhroot. and the second down the val
ley of the Lippe and Wezer. The canal
ization of the Lippe River wll' also be
carried upward to Hamm. The total
length, exclusive of the Wezer, will be
165 miles. The cost will be about $5,
000,000. The vote on the Berlin-Stettin
Canal and other projects was post
poned. The committee's action is regarded as
insuring the passage of the measure
through the Diet in its present form.
The bill embraces, a Center-party
amendment, giving the Prussian gov
ernment a monopoly on propulsion on
the canal by tug or electrical motors
running along the shore. It appears
that this amendment was the only thing
which saved the bill, since It renders
the measure acceptable to the part of
the agrarian element that hopes to
compel the government to keep freight
rates high enough to compete seriously
with railroads and thereby, prevent Che
cheap transportation of agricultural
products and a consequent encroach
ment of foreign grain from the German
Baron von Zedlitz, 'who- was the lead
ing spirit of the opposition to the canal
Dills in 1899 and 1901, is now trying to
persuade the Conservatives to support
the present measure in oraer to close
the breach between them and the Em
peror, caused by the rejection of those

A Strict Censorship
"Never take a case," said Horace Mann to. a young lawyer, "unless
you believe your client is right and his cause just."
This advice has been adopted with signal success by our store news
In most stores the scribe accepts at par the various claims of buyers.
He merely edits copy and supplies frills.
Here, however, such claims are subjected to close examination, and
are only deemed eligible for publicity when they have passed the censor.
Any wonder that our announcements evoke such response?
