JRalc Industries to Be Discussed at
SKATTLIC, Wash., Sept. 30. (Spe
cial.) Seattle's manufacturing and
industrial interests will emphasize
transportation rate injustices in the
northwest during the sessions of the
Northwest Rivers and Harbors con
vention to convene in Portland Octo
ber 4 and 5.
For this purpose, a delegation representing-
the Manufacturers" Associa
tion of Washington will attend the,
meeting, armed with facts relating to
present rate problems and .their ef
fect on local industries. Organiza
tion of the manufacturers' delegation
was announced Thursday, by Clancy
M. T-ewis, secretary of the association.
The Portland convention has been
summoned to discuss every angle of
the transportation question, both by
water and rail. The northwestern
delegation of the manufacturers' as
sociation comprises V. K. McDonald,
traffic man with Harmon & Co.. Ta
eoma; Ji. M. Hums, traffic expert
with A. Rupert & Co. of Puyallup
and Sumner; Frank C. Clark of the
Denny-Kenton Clay & Coal company,
and F. C. Moore. This delegation will
recommend a change in rail rates on
raw materials for the manufacture
of chain, a matter that directly af
fects one of Seattle's most important
industries the Seattle Chain com
pany. At present the rale on raw mate
rials for the manufacture of chain is
as high as the rate on the finished
chain shipped to this section. This
is considered an injustice to the Se
attle plant, inasmuch as it competes
with similar industries in the east.
Other changes will be recommended
in the present tariff on gas tanks,
drums and cylinders, an item which
has direct bearing on a number of

WEST COAST RATES

New Import and Export Tar
iff Is Arranged.
DIFFERENTIAL BASIS ENDS
Portland and Olhcr Pacific Ports
Itcstorcd lo iHqua I Position
for Trade Competition.
PortJand and other Pacific coast
ports are a pa in placed in a position
of crjual competition with ports of
the Atlantic and L.ulf coasts for the
trans-Pacific bu.-inrs.s by the new im
port and export tariff which has been
agreed to "by the western transcon
tinental railroads. A copy of the
new tariff was received yesterday
by the traffic bureau of the port and
dock co mmissio rws.
The pen era I off ect of the new im
port and export tariff is to remove
differentials which have existed
aeai nsl the Pacific coast since rail
road freight rates were increased late
last AuiruFt. These differentials
ranged from $1 a ton on ,auto
mobiles to $1.S4 on iron and steel.
Rates A re I iiunlized.
The&c 'ijrurcs represent the -savinV
which could formerly be effected by
exporters in routing their freight for
t h orient th rouph Atlantic or Gulf
ports instead of through ports on the
Pacific coast. The new tariff equalizes
t hese rates and makes the total rail
and water t ransportation cost from
the centers of production to trans
pacific destinations practically the
same, whether shipnunt is made
t hroush New York, Galveston or
The manner in which the new tariff
affects shipments . through Portland
is shown in the following- table,

Fluctuation Kxamplf Cited
A typical example of the recent
fluctuations in export rail rates is
given by cotton, which, before the
increase of August 26. had a rate of
$1.2t from Texas common points to
Portland and other Pacific ports.
When the August increase became
effective, the export rate on cotton
was raised to 1. '.. thus creating a
differential of $3.3 it a ton against
Pacific ports. The new rate of $1.50
will just remove this differential.
The new export and import tariff
is now being published by the rail
road companies an an announcement
is expected within a few days as to
the date upon which it will be made

After Suffering for Months
He Finds Relief Through
Tanlac Now on Job and
Many wonderful indorsements have
been given Tanlac, but the statement
made the other day by Humphrey
Kearns of 411 Main Bt., Holyoke, Mass.,
is in many respects so remarkable as
to be almost incredible.
Mr. Kearns has been employed by
the Linden Paper Mill Co. for the past
la years. The facts in his case, which
are already known to hundreds of
Holyoke people, are given below just
as related by himself. Here is his
"I was never sick a day in my life
until about four months ago when 1
fell down in a faint at the mill and
had to be .carried home and put to bed.
"There was such pain and feeling
of pressure in the top of my head at
times that I thought I would go dis
tracted. I lost the use of my left arm,
lejr and foot, and my stomach got so
out of order that I couldn't eat with
out its hurting me.
"My food would invariably sour and
the gas from it would press on my
heart so aa to almost cut off my
"I ami so nervous it seems as though I should fly" "My nerves
are all on edge" "I wish I were dead." How often have we heard
these expressions or others quite as extravagant from some loved one
who has been brought to this state by some female trouble which
has slowly developed until the nerves can no longer stand up under it.
No woman should allow herself to drift into this condition without
giving that good old-fashioned root and herb remedy Lydia II. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound a trial.
Read the Letters of These Two Women.
North East, 3Id. " I was in ill health
four or live years and doctored with
one doctor after another but none
helped me. I was irregular and had
such terrible pain in my back, lower
part of my body and down each side
that I had to go to bed three or four
days every month. I was very nervous,
tired, could not sleep and could not eat,
without getting sick. A friend asked
me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound and I am sorry I did
not take it sooner for it hSs helied me
wonderfully. I don't have to go to bed
with the pain, can eat without being
eick and have more strength. I recom
mend your medicine and you are at
lilierty to publish ray testimonial."
