D.iliuau Rata I Airietafinn
At the biennial convention of the Or
der of Railway Conductors recently
held at Portland, Oregon, resolutions
were unanimously adopted voicing their
sentiments as to the effect of proposed
' railway rate legislation on the 1,300,
000 railroad employes, whom they in
part , represented. These resolutions
"indorse the attitude of President
Roosevelt in condemning Becret rebates-!
and other illegalities, and commend the
attitude of the heads of American rail
ways, who, with practical unanimity,
have joined with the president on this
question." They then respectfully
point out to congress the "lnadvisa
bility ot legislation vesting in the
hands of a commission power over rail
way rates, now lower by far in the
. United States than in any other coun
try," because such regulation would
"result in litigation and confusion and
inevitably tend to an enforced reduc
tion in rates, irreepective'of the ques
tion of the ability of the railroads to
stand the reduction, especially in view
of the increased cost of their Buppliea
and materials." They further pro
tested against such power being given
to the present Inter-State commission
because "the proposed legislation is
not in harmony with our idea of Amer
ican jurisprudence, inasmuch as it con
templates that a single body shall have
the right to investigate, indict, try,
condemn and then enforce its decisions
. at the cost of the carriers, pending ap
peal, which is manifestly inequitable."
The conductors base their demand
for only such legislation, if any, as
would "secure and insure justice and
equity and preserve equal rights to all
. parties concerned," on the ground that
the low cost of transportation "is the
result of the efficiency of American
railway management and . operation
which have built up the country
through constant improvement and de
velopment of territory, while at the
same time recognUion has been given
to the value of intelligence among em
ployes in contrast to' foreign methods,
where high freight rates and lowest
wages to employes obtain."
- In pressing their claims against leg
islation adverse to their interests, they
point out the fact that "the freight
rates of this country average only two
per cent of the cost of articles to the
consumer, thus making the freight rate
so insignificant a factor in the selling
price that numerous standard articles
are sold at the same price in all parts
of the country."
Peace After the Battle.
The wife of a well-knowa- Western
Senator is a Southern woman who was
married to the Senator late In life.
While still a young girl she left her
native State and came North to live;
but from time to time she would re
visit her old home.
On one of these occasions shortly be
fore her marriage she happened to
meet the old colored "mammy" who
had been her nurse, and who was vast
ly surprised to find that "Miss Mary"
still was unwedded.
"Lan', Miss Ma'y!" she exclaimed,
"ain't yo' married yit?" .

The Ninety and Nine."
There were ninety and nine that safely
In the shelter of the fold;
But one was out on the hills away,
Far off from the gates of gold,
Away on the mountains wild and bare.
Away from the tender Shepherd's care.
Lord, thou hast here thy ninety and
Are they not enough for thee?"
Bat the Shepherd made answer: " 'Tis
Has wander'd away from me;
And although the road be rough and
I go to the desert to find my sheep."
But none of the ransom'd ever knew
How deep were the waters cross'd,
Nor how dark was the night that the
Lord passed through
Ere he found his sheep that was lost
Out in the desert he heard its cry-
Sick and helpless, and ready to die.
Lord, whence are those blood-drops all
That mark out the mountain track?"
'They were shed for one who had gone
Ere the Shepherd could bring him
'Lord, whence are thy hands so rent and
They are pierced to-night by many a

And up from the rocky steep,
There rose a cry to the gate of heaven,
Rejoice! I have found my sheep!
And the angels echoed around the throne,
Rejoice, for the Lord brings back his

HE DESTROYS SECRETS.
Queer Buarlnessj of Man Who Reduces
Account Books to Pulp.
i nave just paid a re w cents a
pound for. old books and papers for
which' some one in this town would
give thousands of dollars," said a
downtown paper manufacturer a few
days ago to the New York Sun, and
he told the truth.
A large part of his business consists
of destroying confidential papers for
business houses, banks, brokers or any
one else who can furnish enough to
The paper man pays for this valu
able old paper only a few cents a
pound. That is all it is worth to him
for reduction into pulp. His rates are
a bit lower, perhaps, than those of the
junkman, but with his - purchase he
gives a guaranty that nothing he buys
shall ever be read or examined. .
A list of his customers which he
gives for. reference is pretty good proof
that he keeps his word and that the
secrets, of the waste-paper bags never
leak out The reference list shows
that the manufacturer has destroyed
books, papers, etc., for about twenty
banks, half as many insurance com
panies, a dozen bankers and brokers,
several of the big wholesale dry goods
firms and a large number of retailers,
"How do you destroy this valuable
paper and make sure that nobody gets
hold of it?" the manufacturer was
"It isn't allowed to pass through
very many hands," was the . answer,
"and the men who do take care of it
are ignorant Some of them cannot
read, but they would not have a chance
to glean much out of our waste if they
"When we get an order from a firm
to destroy its books and papers we
send a man up with a lot of big bags.
The bindings are ripped off the books,
their pages are torn apart and they
are stuffed into bags along with let
ters and any other waste the firm may
have to offer.
"The bags are sealed and put aboard
a freight car. Next day they arrive
at our factory in Connecticut, and the
seals are not broken until the bags are
dropped beside a big vat filled with
"The papers are dumped into this.
which reduces them to a pulp. An
other process cleans the Ink from the
plup, and then it goes into new paper.
You see, there isn't very much chance
for any .one to get hold of any Informa
tion set down on our waste paper, and
I'm dead sure that our guarantee has
never been broken.
"Do we do a big business in de
stroying documents? Well, I should
say yes. -
"Before we took hold of that new
branch of the paper business It was a
good deal of a problem for some firms
to know how to get rid of their old
books and papers. It is harder to
burn a book than it is to burn, a log.
Papers are also easily carried up a
chimney by a strong draught and
burning didn't solve the problem.
"Junk dealers would buy the stuff,
but they didn't give any guaranty as
to privacy, and were always on the
hunt for anything they could turn into
'I know of a case where a junk
man bought a lot of letters from a
dry goods firm, sorted them all out by
States and found that they gave the
key to the identity of the' firm's cus
tomers. A rival firm bought the let
ters and paid pretty well for them.
"Then there are lots of things on
the books of almost any firm that a
competitor would like to see price
lists, discounts, trade relations and all
that sort of thing. It wasn't safe to
hand books containing that informa
tion to Junkmen and that's why we
started In the destruction business."
GOLDEN COW IS DEAD.
And a Whole Town Ia in Moorniiigior
the Costly Animal.
Mrs. Rice's cow Is dead and the en
tire population of Goldfleld, Nev., is
in mourning, says a correspondent to
the St Paul Pioneer Press. She was
the only cow in the gold-bearing dis
trict As not a spear of grass nor a
herb of any description grows in this
desert region that would furnish fod
der to even a goat Mrs. Rice's cow
subsisted exclusively on hay that costs
S100 a ton. Even the milk which
reaches the burg from Reno, two days
old, sold for $1 a quart; so this foun
tain rieht "in their midst" was a
When Mrs. Rice decided to risk
nearly all she possessed in the impor
tation of this cow she realized that she
was rlsfcinz it for a big prize. The
Journey of "Bossy" was long and tedi
ous, partly by rail on slow freights,
part of the distance tied to the rear
end of mule freighters, trudging over
the alkali desert But the enterprising
widow was rewarded one day about
three months ago when her cow was
delivered safely in Goldfleld.
X That was a gala day in the town.
The cow was only an ordinary Jersey,
long horned and red, but was an ob
ject of greater curiosity than if it had
been a specimen of some prehistoric
age. The demand was so great for a
sight of the gentle creature that Mrs.
Rice consented to allow her treasure
to be paraded 'through the main thor
oughfares shortly after its arrlva,..
Never did a -circus parade in a coun
try village create more realenthus-
iasm. Business was practically sus
pended during the hour of the cere
mony. The miners followed In the
wake of the cow, cheering wildly.
Merchants ran from their tented stores
with ribbons and. flags, until her cow-
ship was decorated more gaudily than
a May day queen.
Following close on this incident a
new tent appeared on the main street,
in front of which was a crude sign
with inscription: -
'Fresh ice cream and milk shakes
from Mrs. Rice's cow."
It was business acumen worthy of
genius. Mrs. Rice was the envy of
every merchant in town: Her estab
lishment was thronged day and even
ing. The supply inexhaustible, yet no
one had the temerity to. question open
ly the genuineness of the delicacies
When Mrs. Rice failed to nut in an
appearance as usual one morning in
quiry developed that the cow had died
suddenly during the night There was
consternation in the camp.
No reason for its death could be as
It was suggested that some jealous
rival among the saloon men, whose
business was affected by the cow's
supply, might have poisoned the beast,
but this was shouted down as too in
famous for Goldfleld.
