NEW YORK, May 4 Secretary Lang
don of the local Red Cross organization
received a telegram yesterday from Dr.
Devine the national field agent of the
.society in which hi- informed Mr. Lang
don that he had organized the City of
San Francisco into, seven sections for
relief purposes and was working hand
in hand with the military authorities
in co-ordinating all volunteer relief
work to administer aid under this plan.
A complete simple registration, Dr. Di
vine wired, was U'ing worked out, while
free employment bureaus had he-n open
ed under the auspices of the state labor
commission and with the co-operation
of both trade.1? unions and employe.
Dr. Devine reports having visited Santa
Rosa, and found terrible destitution,
but satisfactory relief measures.
In reply to a wired query to what
extent refugees from San Francisco
were being sent to this city and whether
their arrival here might tend to embar
rass the charity organization society,
Dr. Devine sent the following telegram:
"William C. Langdon, Red Cross, New
"Committee has authority to issue
free asportation until May 5; is
trying to send persons to relatives only.
They, 5 report few sent to Xew York.
.Colonel Tomcy, of the army, in full
charge of sanitation; medical help from
outside not needed."
A novel resolution to help the San
Francisco sufferers has been adopted by
the Xew York Stamp Society. The so
ciety, w Ijich is composed solely of col
lectors of rare postage stamps, requests
all philatelists and the public at large
to assist in this movement each contri
buting one or more stamps to be sold
at auction at the society's rooms here
on May 16th."
MINT PAYS OUT MONEY.
SAN FRANCISCO; May 4.-The Uni
ted Status Mint, which is now being
used as the general clearing house for
the banks, has paid out between seven
and eight million dollars to depositors
since it opened Tue-day Inst.
Yesterday morning the number of per
sons who weiv anxious to secure their
money was much smaller than expected.
.The line did not extend for half a
block. This may have been due to the
fact that none of the savings banks are
paying depositors. The savings banks
will not open for two weeks and there
will be no opportunity to withdraw ac
counts before that time.

danger the supremacy of the Standard.
Rate Are Too High.
Au iiniiuHliuto result of thU delimita
tion of the competitive area is shown
by the prices of ordinary illuminating
oil throughout the country. After de
ducting the freight rate, the price of
such oil is usually from two cent to
live cents a gallon higher in the non
competitive than in the competitive
fields. A reasonable profit up on refined
oil is aliout one-half a cent p r gallon.
It is clear that exorbitant profits are
obtained, in the mm-compctitie tie UN.
This iiionopoli-tic control extends from
the well of the producer to the door
step of the consumer,"
Mr. Cartleld cites the fact that the
Xew York Central Railroad Company
which refused for itself and atl'iliated
lines to give aefss to records of State
At the beginning of the investigation,
he says, the Standard Oil Company de
nied that it had obtained in recent
year or was now obtaining any rebate
.or other transportation discrimination
as against its competitors, and yet he
says that a most careful review of the
act and the explanations lead up to
the conclusion that the Standard Oil
Company has habitually received from
the railroads and i now receiving,
secret rates and other unjust and illegal
Railroads and Standard Combined.
"In 1!H4 these rates saved to the
Standard Oil Company three quar
ters of a million dollars, representing
the ditTVreniv between the open rates
and the rates actually paid. These dis
criminations," he says, "have Wn so
long continued, so secret, so ingenious
ly applied to new conditions of trade
and so large in amount as to make it
certain that they were due to concerted
action by the Standard and the rail
roads." He savs further that the Stand
ard Oil Comiwny is receiving unjust
.discrimination in the matter of open
rates, the published rates from the lead
ing Standard shipping points leing re
latively much more than rates from the
shipping points of its competitor.
Mr. Garfield then refers to seven in
stances of important discriminations in
favor of the Standard Oil Company in
.various parts of the country and says
that most of the secret rates and some
.of the open discriminations discovered
by the bureau were aliolished by tin
railroads shortly after such discovery
After calling attention to the good
which already has resulted from the in
vestigation Mr. Carlichl says charges
effected have put the independents up
on a fairer footing and make competi
tion possible in territorities heretofore
inaccessible. The report concludes a
Indepennts at Disadvantage.
"Nevertheless the widespread dis
criminations in open rate still in force
leave the independents at serious dis
advantage. The investigation only in
cidentaly touched state shipment from
distributing centers, particularly in W-.t
than carloads. The few instances ex
iimined suggest probability of discrimi
nations on such shipments which, tak'
en in connection with through trallic
may result in discriminations on inter
"I have cited these particular in
stances to show the various methods by
which discriminations are obtained and
to call particular attention to methods
which, if legal, are mere devices to ob
tain exactly the same result as tfould
be obtained by rebates paid on inter
state business. Any freight discrimi
nation, whether it be state or interstate,
tends to give control of markets to the
preferred shipper, and makes monopoly
possible. If existing law merely pro
hibits a special rate device for obtain
ing discrimination, and permits the
same result to be accomplished in a
different way, then the legislation is to
that effect a sham.
Interstate Commerce Law Defective.
''This investigation has shown very
clearly one glaring defect in the inter
state commerce law, viz: the method of
filing and publishing tariffs. Although
a tariff or a rate has b en tiled with
the commission in compliance with the
teiins of the law, none but the favored
shipper may know of its existence.
Tariffs may be made and rates may be
combined in such manner as to make
it practically impossible for the ordi
nary shipper to find them. As long as
the state rates are not required to be
made public and shippers use such rates
in combination wW.h interstate rates, all
mannen of devices to evade the purpose
of the law are possible. All state rates
used in connection with interstate ship
ments should be filed with the inter
state commerce commission and a radi
cal change should be made in the direc
tion of simplifying tariffs and in me
thods of printing and filing them."

subject of I -a rtirotomy. which was dis

Medicine last night and excited the
greatest interest. The girl last October
was shot through the spinal cord, alnlo

formed the subsequent operation lead

slight halting in the action oi the left
leg and a small tendency to bend buck

she would eventually gain entii control
of her powers of locomotion. This wns
declared to be one iif the most wonder

of American surgery. In many respects

Astoria Women Are Finding Relief at
It does seem that women have more
than a fair share of the aches and pain
that afflict humanity; they must "keep
up," must attend to dlutie in "pitc of
constantly aching back, or headaches,
dizzy spells, bearing down pains; they
must saoop over, when to stoop means
torture. They mii-t walk and bend and
work with racking pains and many aches
from kidney ills. Kidney causes more
suffering than any other organ of the
body. Keep the kidneys well and health
is easily maintained. Read of a remedy
for kidneys only that helps and cures
the kidneys and is endorsed by people
Mrs. John Close, 2.10 Commercial st,
Astoria Ore.,, says: "I just as ardent
ly recommend Doan's Kidney Pills now
as I did some three year ago when they
relieved me of the severe attack of
backache and kidney complaint. I never
before used any remedy that acted so
promptly and effectively as Doan's Kid
ney Tills which I procured at Charles
Rodgcrs drug store on Commercial street
My belief is that if this medicine fails
to give relief to anyone suffering from
kidney troubles there is nothing else
that will relieve, I cheerfully recommend
Doan's Kidney Pills to all troubled as
