Hllilj IS TO VISIT VANCOUVER
Preparations Made lor Public Re
ception of Railroad Magnate.
VANCOUVER. Wash., Sept 30. Presi
dent James J. Hill, of the Great Northern
Railroad Company, and a party of high
railroad officials, will pay Vancouver a
visit some time tomorrow. This informa
tion was. tho substance of a telegraphic
dispatch received this evening by Mayor
B. G. Crawford from Vice-President
Charles M. Levey, and was in answer to a
message sent earlier in the day by Mayor
Crawford to Mr. Levey at Tacoma. At
Just what hour the party will arrlvo is
not I definitely known. Mr. Levey's dls
patqi says that definite Information on
that point will be sent by wire tomorrow.
Neither could it be definitely learned to
night just how the Hill party expects to
reach here, whether over the Vancouver
Kalama line or via Portland.
From the best information, obtainable,
however, it is believed tho Hill special
train will come direct to Vancouver over
the new line from Kalama. It is thought
probable the train will arrive here be
tween U and .12 o'clock, and that the
party, after a- brief stay here, will pro
ceed to Portland over the electric line.
Hasty preparations are being made by
the leading citizens to meet the railroad
magnate and party at the depot upon
their arrival and escort them to the Hotel
Columbia, where .an Informal reception
will be held.
The fact that President Hill readily ac
cepted tho Invitation of the Mayor to visit
this city at this time Is considered an
event of the greatest Importance. Tho
news spread like wildfire throughout the
jown. and it is expected a large crowd
will be on hand to meet the party upon
:s arrival. Recent railroad developments
incident to the proposed building of tho
line down the north bank 'of the Columbia
from .Kennewlck to Vancouver and the
bridging of the Columbia and Willamette
Rivers between here and Portland have
been followed with Intense interest by the
Vancouver people, and the coming of
President Hill Is regarded as clinching tfa
argument In proof that the road for which
the Vancouver people have waited so Jong
and anxiously is now to become an actual

SEATTLE. Sept 30. (Specials-President
James J. Hill, of the Great North
em Railroad, sent back word to Railroad
Commissioners Falrchlld and, McMillan,
when thej; solicited a conference, that he
was too busy to see them.
"If it concerns the Great Northern
Railroad you may ee some other mem
ber of the party," he tojd them.
The two Railroad Commissioners had
planned to meet President Hill, as a re
sult of a co-incidental registration of 'the
railroad party and Commissioners at the
same hotel. The Commissioners went to
the hotel, but the railroad party stayed
aboard Its special train. When a meet
ing 'failed Friday night tho Commission
ers decided to solicit a conference tho
following day. They sent a messenger
with a note to Hill's car asking for a
meeting. Hill was ready to start on a
tour of investigation about his terminals
and refused to break Into the day's
Later In the day Commissioner Fair
child met a traffic official of the North
em Pacific, but he Insisted then that he
had nothing to discuss with the railroads.
Louis Hill, was closeted all day with the
railroads attorneys and not visible to the
Commissioners and both Darius Mlllen
and. Ben Campbell had other engage
ments. Commissioner McMIllen usually stops at
the Rainier Club, where an informal
meeting with the Hill party was had
Friday night, but he remained away from
that gathering and did not go near th6
club while Hill was in the city.
In a speech delivered at the Rainier
Club last night Mr. Hill paid his respects
to Interstate Commerce Commission, say-
lng that Coast states were - better off
without it He said that tho State of.
Washington was enjoying the lowest pos
sible rates at the present time, but that.
the Government regulation of rates
would paralyze the commerce of Wash

seeing the Commission.

tion to bo devoted to tho spiritual, the
laatlng side of man's nature, and less
to bodily comforts and tho things that
are not permanent. In part he said:
"From morning to morning again we
iaoor, and cease only when our
strength gives out, to procure comforts
and enjoyments for our earthly ex
istence, and not a thought is devoted
to the life that leads upward. And the
more we have the moro we wish. All
our meditation is for the frail, the 1m
potent, the vanishing part of man. To
heap up treasures Is our aim. And
when our store of gold has become
great, our strength Is exhausted, our
life gives out, our soul returns to lm
mortality, and laughing heirs claim all
the fruit of our efforts. Not once, and
not twice, but very, very often, we note
how the savings of 30 years or more
are dissipated In threo short years by
tho spendthrift son of a greedy father.
And never a thought is devoted to the
fact that all this restlessness, all this
turmoil, is but vanity, and no one Is
profited. The wisdom of the wise often
froeo astray, the strength of the hero
Is broken, the wealth of the rich la
scattered. Let. therefore, none boast
of these three gifts, for their are vain.
"But Is there nothing' appertaining
to man that remains permanently? In
deed thero Is. The text we have chosen
declares it to all. After the psalmist
has contemplated his nothingness, his
frailty and the vanity of his posses
slons. he lifts his heart upwards and
says: 'And now, what do I hope? O
Lord, my confidence Is In thee! There
is Indeed that In man which will ren
der him Immortal; there Is that in him
which makes him but little lower than
the angels. If he but feel It within him;
it he foster It and strengthen It. ' The
hope in God. the knowledgo that he Is
endowed with a spirit that would rlso
above earthly wants and material wel
fare, the religious feeling in, man It
remains true forever. And If the body
Is but as grass, and Its love as the
flower that blossometn and quickly
wlthereth. the grass may wither, thu
flower fade, but the word of God will
remain steadfast forever."

Dr. Wise made special reference to the
mistreatment that had been accorded the
Jews In Russia. Thirty thousand Jews
fought for the Russian government In
Manchuria, and yet they were -constantly
persecuted throughout Russia and treated
as an Inferior people. He said: "For our
people we demand not rights but right:

STRANGER THAN FICTION.
A Itracdy Which Has Kcrolutlonlxftd the
Treatment ot Stomach Troubled
The remedy Is not heralded as a
wonderful discovery nor yet a secret
patent medicine, neither is It clalmea
to cure anything except dyspepsia, in
digestion and stomach troubles with
which nine out of ten suffer.
The remedy Is in tho form of pleasant-tasting
tablets or lozenges, con
taining vegetable and fruit essences,
pure aseptic pepsin (Government test),
golden seal and diastase. The tablets
are sold by druggists under the namo
of Studrt's Dyspepsia Tablets. Many
Interesting experiments to test the di
gestive power of Stunrfs Tablets show
that one grain ot the active principle
contained In them Is sufficient to thor
oughly digest 3000 grains of rawmeat,
eggs and other wholesome food.
Stuart's Tablets do not act upon the
bowels, like after-dinner pills and
cheap cathartics, which simply irritate
and Inflame the Intestines, -without
having any effect whatever In digest
ing food or curing1 indigestion. .
If the stomach can be rested and as
sisted in the work of digestion it will
very soon recover Its normal vigor, as
jjo organ Is so much abused and over
worked as tho stoniach".
.This Is the secret, If there is any se
cret, of the remarkable success of
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, a remedy
practically unknown a few years ago
and now thejnost widely known of any
treatment for stomach weakness.
This success has been secured entire
ly upon Its merits as a digestive, pure
and simple, . because there can be no
stomach trouble If the food Is promptly

Visible Writing Supersedes Old-Fashioned Machines Is Best

The test resulted so successfully for the Under
wood that the order was doubled, making ten ma
chines installed in this college within- a week.
Indications are that all of the vast number of ma
chines operated in the Holmes Business College will
he replaced b- Underwoods.
The following statement made by Or. Hobnes Law
rence, the principal, briefly states the reasons wiry
the Underwood was selected:
"Visible writing is so far ahead of the old-fashioned
system that it is hardly to be compared.
"I investigated all the visible-writing machines,
and bought Underwoods because convinced- they
were the best, the most durable.
"I make it a practice to visit the largest Eastern
business colleges once or twice a year for new ideas:
I find th'at in Eastern colleges the Underwood is
standing the strain of business-college wear and tear
as well as an' of the cold reliables. '
Is Ideal for Touch System
"Tts action is better than that of any other ma
chine quicker',: easier, lighter.
."Visible -writing, in connection with the touch
system, is ideal for typewriter operation.

for the Underwood machine.
"We aim tobe up to the instant in everything,'
and that is why we installed the Underwood.
