Members of the Wlsconsln-La Fol

much comment. That some of the dele

Taft Meat Confer.
One rumor that reached Taft head
quarters was that the Roosevelt lead
ers had planned to place defeated con
testants for seats In the convention
hall, in place of delegates awarded
places by the National committee.
Rumor had It that Cecil Lyon, of Texas,
and other Roosevelt members of the
National committee who had charge of
the distribution of tickets for thel
states, would not give up the creden
tials to the Taft men, but would issue
there to the defeated Roosevelt dele
The report struck the Taft leaders
like a thunderbolt, and within five
minutes after It reached Director Mc
Kinley. Senator Root, Senator Penrose
and James E. Watson, of Indiana, ex
Republican whip of the House of ReP'
resentatives, conferred on the parlia
mentary phase of the situation.
While the conference was going on
a number of National committeemen
were summoned. Before they arrived
it was discovered that Colonel Lyon
had turned over the Texas credential
to the Taft delegates, and that there
were only two Taft delegates, those
from the fourth district of California
who had not reecived their creden
tials. I

Public Service Commission Gives
City Same as Seattle Tariff.
OLTMPIA. Wash.. June 17. (Spe
cial.) Tacoma shippers are to get the
same rates over the Northern Pacific
Railroad to Spokane and Eastern Wash
ington points as are now enjoyed by
the shippers of Seattle, as the Public
Service Commission entered a formal
order today directing that the same
rates apply out of Tacoma as out of
Seattle. . .
Thts marks the end of the tight
started by Tacoma as soon as the rail
roads announced their tariffs under
the distributive rate order of the Com
mission. Seattle getting a rate of 9
cents a hundred while the Tacoma rate
was f 1.07 a hundred. The new rate will
be s cents a hundred, and as the
original rate from Sound points to
Spokane wa $1.35. it means a reduc
tion of 3S cents a hundred as the result
of the Commission order. Tacoma was
discriminated against on the ground
that the Northern Pacific had to meet
the Great Northern Short Line mileage
competition out of Seattle but the Com
mission directs that Seattle Is not to
be favored.

discarded for some time; had spent a
year or two in the attic, and we were
sent to hog tie it and put it In the
smokehouse. If you ever tried to hog
tie a hoop skirt you know what we
were up against. It took two hours'
hard work, in which time it jumped
through the window and hopped 52
feet in two hops.
After running it down we got a
cinch on it before it recovered and
carried it struggling to the smoke
house. For four years that hoop skirt
lay straining at his or her bonds, and
finally escaped into the back yard,
where It wandered about for another
year or two. Then one day we were
told to dispose of It for good and keeps.
We dug a deep hole In the back end
of the garden. We tied that hoop skirt
into a bunch about as large as a bushel
basket and burled It deep, and forgot
about It Ten years afterward we hap
pened to want to go fishing one day, I as though placed there by a dressmak.
and in digging bait the spade struck er. We didn't want to start anything,
a piece of wire. We reached down and
gave a little tug at It, and in about a
second that hoop skirt was wound 40
times around our neck; the fight lasted
about a half hour, and we finally
downed It with a toehold and tossed
it over into the alley.
The following Winter we chased a
hog down that alley and without warn
ing that hoop skirt again got a stran
gle hold on us. It got one fall out of
us before we knew what was coming.
The next two falls were in five and a
half and seven seconds respectively.
In acknowledging that .we were out
classed we detract nothing from our
ability" as a wrestler. Frank Gotch
isn't deuce high with a hoop skirt on
the mat. It finally jumped up and
down a few times and landed on our
shoulders, hanging all around as nicely
so we let the hog go and started to
wards the river, which was a mlfa
away, carrying the lower edges In our
hands, like a woman crossing a muddy
street.- We hardly dared to breathe,
and moved not a muscle except our
legs. When we arrived at the river
we. called for help and a friend came
and helped up to free ourselves. We
tossed that hoop skirt far out into
deep water. That was many years ago,
but it is there yet. Bound aa ever, and
when they come in style again we
are going after it.
