That it is the intention of the North
western Corporation to build an electric
railway between Salem and Eugene and
possibly between Salem and Portland,
was stated yesterday by Alvadore Welch,
general manager of the company.
Mr. Welch would not set any time for
the -commencement of construction of the
road betwen Salem and Eugene but said
that certain negotiations were under way
that might result in immediate construc
tion. The corporation is- now building four
mile of street railway in the Salem city
limits and is acquiring right of way be
tween Salem and Eugene.
Plans Going Ahead Rapidly.
We are going ahead with our gen
eral plans for improvements and exten-Bions.--
said Mr. Welch, yesterday, 'but
just how extensive our railway construc
tion will be will depend on money mat
ters. We intend ultimately to build an
electric railway from Eugene to Salem
and if conditions warrant may extend the
road to Portland.
"We are' now engaged in constructing
a water power plant on the McKenzie,
which will develop an initial 10.000-horss-power.
and will erect our transmission
lines and distribute current throughout
the Valley. This plant should be com
pleted within the year.
Service will be given Eugene, Albany.

For the Farmers' E. & C. Union of America.
The tri -state convention of the Farmers
Union, held at Walla Walla, Wash., in
January, lflio, adopted a resolution demand
ing extension of the Civil Service to include
postmasters and the Postmaster-General.
The reason for this measure is apparent
when we consider the present postal deficit
and the fact that President Taft has recom
mended to Congress a substantial increase
in rates on periodicals, which, with news
papers, should be carried free. This meas
ure would dispense with the high salaries
paid to postmaster in large cities, who
leave their work to assistants, and are
themselves useless and unnecessary luxuries,
and in almost all cases detrimental to the
service, as they frequently insist on pro
moting personal friends without regard to
their efficiency. This step will result in
greater efficiency and. consequently, in a.
decrease in number of clerks in money
order and registry divisions of large offices.
It will also result in adequate control of
the franking privilege and stop the grafting
In the Postoff Ice Department.
Salaries paid to useless postmasters for
the fiscal year 3P0R were 925.ri09.307.R2. and
the deficit yas $1 rt.910.397.09. Hence this
item alone would make the Department earn
a profit of $S.flS9.nS.."13. Gross returns on
newspapers and periodicals were $6,950.-.
SOG.73. and If they had been carried free,
the Department would still have earned a
profit of 1.739,611.78.
It is almost impossible to compute the
savin cs which would result from adequate
control of the franking privilege, but if we
estimate this at H per cent of the amount
paid railroads for transportation of the
mails, this adds at least $4,ro8.S01.27 to
the profits of the Department. Proper con
trol of the Department would eliminate
from the mail a class of publications,
neither newspapers nor magazines, but such
publications as are Injurious to the persons
reading them, as they fill their pages with
trashy stories and the advertisements of
unreliable firms. These are known as the
class mailed at Augusta. - Me. Eliminating

"YOU ADVISED ME TO USE
DID SO AND IT CURED ME."
The above is an extract from a letter which we publish below, .
from Mr. J. O'Malley. As he says, we advised him to use S. S. S. for
Rheumatism, and at the same time we told him why it would cure him.
In this short talk we want to tell every one who is suffering with
Rheumatism, about the principle on which S. S. S. works, and explain
exactly how it cures this disease. We believe you will agree with us
that it is the only possible way in which to cure the trouble.
The cause of Rheumatism is an excess of uric acid in the blood.
This uratic impurity gets into the circulation by absorption, usually
because of chronic constipation, weak kidneys, and other systemic
irregularities. Then the blood becomes weak and sour, and irritating
urate particles are formed, in this vital fluid. When in this impure
condition the blood cannot furnish the necessary amount of nourish
ment to the different muscles, tendons, nerwes and ligaments of
the body. Instead, it constantly sleeps them in the briny, acrid
matter, and the gritty, urate parti
cles collect in the joints, which
causes the pains, aches and sore
ness of Rheumatism. Gradually
every symptom grows worse, the
pains are more frequent and se
vere, the muscles become sore
and tender, and constant contact
with the acrid blood slowly
dries up the natural fluids of
the joints, causing the knees,
ankles, fingers, etc., to become
swollen and stiff.
Rubbing the affected portions
of the body, or the application of
liniments, plasters, hot cloths, etc.,
may furnish relief from the acute
pain of an attack of the trouble, but until the blood is purified of the
cause Rheumatism will remain in the system, gradually growing worse.
There is but one way to cure Rheumatism, and that is to cleanse
the blood of the uric acid poisonr S. S. S. goes into the circulation
and attacks the disease at its head. It removes the cause for the reason
that it is the greatest of all blood purifiers. It filters out every trace of
the sour, inflammatory matter, cools the acid-heated blood, furnishes
the material for multiplying the rich, nutritious corpuscles, and by its
tonic effects assists the system to rapidly overcome every symptom of
the disease. S. S..S. is purely vegetable, and may be used by any one
with perfect safety. The fact that S. S. S. has been curing Rheumatism
for more than forty years is one of the reasons why we say it vfill cure
you. Special book on Rheumatism and any medical advice desired, to
til who write and request same.

BANK BRINGS SUIT
Certificates of Deposit Alleged
Not Genuine. ,
GUARANTY IS ATTACHED
lone Institution Charges That Ac
count Was Certified by Insur
ance Official, on Bank Staff,
A story of how the Bank of lone may
have lost $11,000 by permitting the
promoters of the Queen City Fire In
surance Company to take out bogus
certificates of deposit to swell their
apparent assets was told In a suit filed
yesterday In the United States Court.
The suit is brought by James Cole as
attorney for the bank, which is suing;
the Queen City Insurance Company, of
Sioux Falls, S. D., for Jl 1.000 and costs.
In 1904, 1905, and 1906, G. W. Mc
Arthur, it is charged 'in the complaint,
was vice-president and director of the
Bank of lone. In the same years he
also was vice-president and director
of the Queen City Fire Insurance Com
pany. Thus, it is stated, through his
Inuence the bank issued to P. F. Sher
man, treasurer of the Queen City In
surance Company, certificates of de
posit to the amount of $10,000, it be
ing understood that no collection should
be made, as to the bank, the certificates
being simply a form.
This certificate was issued in 1904,
and on March 11 1905, it was returned,
cancelled, and another of the same
value declaring the deposit to be for
one year and bearing interest at the
rate of 4 per cent, was issued to Sher
man in place of the certificate can
celled, with the understanding, how
ever, that as nothing wits paid for it,
it never should be presented for col
lection. One year later this certificate was
returned to the hank, and after it was
concelled, another certificate of deposit
for $11,000 was issued, this being in
favor of the insurance company instead
of Sherman.- (
It was this' last . certificate that
brought the bank into-trouble. Al
though the certificate was issued, like
those that were made in favor of
Sherman, with the express understand
ing that, as it was granted without
any money being deposited, none should
be collected on it, the company allowed
the certificate to get into the hands of
others, and the bank was forced to
pay the $11,000 it represented, to

You advised me to rise S. S. S. for

I was for a year in such a helpless
condition from the effects of Rheuma
tism that I was scarcely able to dress
or feed myself. I tried a great many
things during that time, but nothing
gave me any permanent relief. Then
I commeHced S. S. S., and took the
first dose while hobbling about on
crutches. After using it awhile I was
so much relieved that I was able to re
linquish the use of one crutch. A
faithful continuance of S. S. S. cared
me sound and well shortly afterward,
and I was able to go to my work. I
have never had any return of the
symptoms of Rheumatism, although
S. S. S. cured me five years ago.
2135 N. Senate Ave., Indianapolis, Ind.

traveling salesman of Portland, in Octo
ber, 1903, entered the land under the
timber and stone act, swearing at that
time that he was not acting as the agent
for another party in securing the title
while, in fact-, he was being paid $175
by C. O. Peterson, for the use of his citi

CAUSE OF THEIR SICKNESS
Does human health depend on one

first advanced his theory that the
stomach is the true seat of life and all
health dependent upon it.
Mr. Cooper, who has met with re
markable success in the sale of his

ach is responsible for most sickness,
and that this organ is weak in the
present generation. While discussing
this theory recently, he said: "I am

for six years, from stomach trouble and
indigestion. Quite frequently my stom
ach was so weak that it would not re
tain solid food. I had vomiting spells
every morning and was subject to fre
quent attacks of dizziness. Life be
came such a burden that I often felt it
was not worth the living. I tried
everything I could hear of, but found

"For some time I had been reading
of the Cooper remedies, and finally de
cided to give the New rlscovery prep
aration a trial. After taking the first
bottle I noticed a markeds.improvement.

can eat anything I wish, and have not
been troubled with my stomach since.

"My mother, Mrs. Susan Parkins, is
a nurse of long- experience. Both she
and my father lhave used the Cooper
remedies with splendid results. I will
be glad to answer any personal cor
respondence in regard to my case."
