-Westward ho," Is now the slogan at
the. Summer capital. Bronxed and

about to start on his 12.75-mile swing

Tuesday night the . President will
break bread with the Bos'ton Chamber
of Commerce, and have something to
say as a foreword to the messages later
to be delivered to the country along the
route of his long Journey. Wednesday
morning he will dash for the Middle
West, and. If all goes well, will arrive
vln Chicago the next, forenoon, ready to
begin the real activities that are sched

Going Among Insurgents.
At different points between the Great
Lakes and the Pacific Coast speeches
will be made. In which specific mat

detail. First, and perhaps foremost In
the view of a large part of the popula

legislation, amendment of the Inter
state commerce act, Irrigation and con
servation, deep waterway developments
these are the other matters regard
ing which the President desires to talk
to the people, face to face. .
From the standpoint of "National In

most attention. After leav'ng Chicago

DINGWALL. Scotland. Sept. 11. The
little Roman Catholic settlement here is
immensely Interested In the wedding of
Prince Miguel Braganza and Miss Anita
Stewart, daughter of Mrs. James Henry
Smith, of New York, which will be cele
braie"d September 15.
The event is being described as "the
first royal wedding in Scotland since
that of Mary, Queen of Scots," and the
people throughout the district are pre
paring to make it a semi-public affair.
There will be bonfires cm the surrounding
hills, around which the villagers will give
their Highland dances. The little town
Is gaily decorated.
The wedding itself, however, will be
quietly celebrated. The Prince has re
enounced his claim to the throne of Portu
gal and will only assume the titles which
his wife may tnke with equal right. Ac
cordingly, they will be-known for a
period at least as the Duke and Duchess
of Pisco. After the ceremony the party
will motor back to the castle, which Mrs.
Smith has taken for Jhe season and
where the wedding breakfast will be
served. Later the couple will start on a
honeymoon trip by automobile.

ON BOARD STEAMB OSCAR II.
Sept. 11. (By wireless to Copenhagen,
Sept. 11.) Greeted like a returning con
queror on his arrival, at Chrlstiansand
from Copenhagen, Dr. Frederick A.
Cook, discoverer of the North Pole, to
day sailed -for New York, where he will
arrive about September 21. In response
to . an address of welcome, he made a
speech, in which he paid tribute to the
Arctic explorers who have gone from
Norway and made a sarcastic allusion
to Commander Peary.
The steamer Melcholr, on which Dr.
Cook came from Copenhagen, arrived
about 11 o'clock this morning and cast her
anchor a cable's length from the Oscar
II. Every vessel In the harbor was gaily
decorated with flags and 'all available
small craft had beet chartered to bring
out sightseers from the shore.
Saluted by King's Order.
A salute of seven guns was fired from
the deck of the Melcholr and followed
by seven guns from the Chrlstiansand
fort. This special honorwas accorded
Dr. Cook, a civilian, on a special order
by King Haakon.. As soon as the smoke
of the saluting guns had cleared away,
steam launches started out from the
laaring the clvi-MmIrttary
authorities to the vessel with Dr. Cook
on board. The ship's band played the
"Star Spangled Banner," while the Nor
wegian deputations paid homage to the
The municipal authorities went, aboard
the Melcholr in the harbor and the
Burgomaster of Chrlstiansand delivered
a speech of welcome, in which he con
gratulated the explorer on his achieve
ment. Responding, Dr.. Cook said:
"'An explorer cannot receive greater
honor than the appreciation of a people
who understand him. In Norway you
have many explorers, and some of them
have been among my dearest friends. . I
admire the breadth, energy and scientific
accuracy of Nansen, bnt have only had
the honor of Sverdrup's acquaintance for

in Wheat Tariff Ordered.
ROAD'S EARNINGS LARGE
Washington Commission Finds After
Extended Investigation That Com
plaint of East Side Grain
Growers Is Reasonable.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Sept. 11. (Spe
cial.) Grain rates oft the Northern Pa
cific, except Its Washington Central
branch, are declared unreasonable, ex
cessive and. exorbitant by the State
Railroad Commission, which has issued
an order directing that a rate not ex
ceeding 87 per cent of the rates
charged by that road June 30, 1909,. be
hereafter- in effect.
The Northern Pacific is commanded
to issue tariffs' In accordance with this
order. The hearing as to' the Great
Northern and as to the Washington
Central branch of the Northern Pacific
in this grain-rate cape is continued1 for
Thousands .Saved to Farmers.
Eased upon last year's grain move
ment, this reduction of 12 per cent in
rates would mean a loss to the rail
road in revenue of approximately $300,
000. No order Is issued as to the O. R.
& N., but. In view of the fact that the
Northern Pacific territory covered by
"these hew rates is largely competitive
with the Oregon road, the latter line
will probably be forced to meet the
This order results frtrm a complaint
made to the Commission years ago by
W. R. Cunningham, of Ritzville, and
hundreds of other East "Bide grain
. The memorandum opinion filed In the
case recites briefly the history of the
investigations resulting in the order.
Among other things, it shows that the
Northern Pacific is earning more than
$1,000,000 a year on state business
alone, in excess of. a 7 Per cent divi
dend upon the full value of 11 . the
company's property used In state
transportation. The opinion shows the
enormous Increase in net teturn by the
Northern Pacific the past five years,
which went up frorn 11.7 per cent to
18.5 per cent.
Difficult Problems Ahead.
It is a serious problem with the Com
mission how to "dispose of the Great
Northern side of the case, for the rea
son that the earnings of the Great
Northern in recent years, on exclu
sively state business," have been actu
ally less than 5 per cent on the value
of the property used In state business.
This Is due to the fact that for manfc
years that tailroad permitted Its road
bed and equipment to run down, and
lately it has been forced to large ex
penditures from its earnings to bring
Its property up to the proper" condi
tion.' The'memorandum opinion filed in this
case follows: c v
"This is the first case heard by the
commission " involving the abstract
question of what is a reasonable rate.
It Involves a determination of what
Is a reasonable return for the railway
company to make on the value of its
property . from - its freights and fares.
How far a railway may apply earnings
to betterments and improvements and
thereafter insist on a capitalization of
such improvements, very materially af
fects the public as well as the road.
That it. is in the interest of the public
that such Improvements and changes to

STOCKTON. Cal., Sept. 11. (Special.)
Though few were aware -that John
H. Webster, a supposedly .poor farmer,
who died last week, had an estate, It
became known today, when his will
was opened, that two intimate friends
had been remembered to the extent of
$10,000 cash each. .Neither of them had
any idea that they would receive a
cent, and they were greatly surprised
when informed that they would get so
much mopey. ,
George Harrison, who had been a
lifelong friend of Mr. Webster and
farmed near him for many years, was
first bequeathed $10,000 in remembrance
of the many kindnesses he had be
stowed upon the deceased. It required
two or three repetitions of that par
ticular clause in the will to convince
Mr. 'Harrison that his friend has not
put up a job on him.
The other beneficiary is Miss Edith
Walker, a etenographer in a local store,
and niece of Officer Walker, ex-Chief
of Police. 'She has been a friend of the
Webster family, for many years and a
great favorite of Mr. Webster.
