RAILWAY  EDUCATION  IN  UNIVERSITY  OF  CHICAGO  Chicago, Ills., Sept. 22.���������Co-operation between Uie University of Chicago and a number of i railroad ollicials has resulted in the establishment    of a. four-vcar coursS In. rail-  New  York,  Sept.  20.���������A special to  the World  from  Cleveland,   O.,  says:  "For two days and a'night Mrs..  Louise Daly, in male attire, has  mingled with thc vagrants that infest Whiskey Island, the toughest  part of this city. For the sake of  her two children the woman, who in  the last two years has had much  sorrow "and hardship, came to this  city from Parkers-burg, W. Ea., in  search  of her husband.  "In   the  proper  attire  of  her sex  she ' appeared ' before  Police  Prosecutor  Geler yesterday.    She  requested  his   aid  in     the search for  her husband  and in   compelling him to support her children, an boy of if our and  a girl  of three..      She-told  of     her  luis-band's  desertion  two  years  ago,  of her  donning  male  attire and  going to thc mines at Parkersburg to  work so that her babies might   live-  As a man, she worked in  the min-  way   education.      An   advisory board  composed  mostly of railroad 'men has; es until her strength gave out. There  she learned that the missing husband  was in this city, and leaving her  children in charge of their godmother  she made the trip here dressed as a  man, and rode on freight, trains and  associated with tramps.  Patrolnram     Winchester found   her  on   Whiskey   Island.   To him she admitted   being  a woman.

We     hear  a great  deal   about thc  depression in the lumber trade across  the line and   the ruin ,that is- certain  to ensue  ii    rejected logs  in  British  Columbia  arc   allowed   export.       is  1herc  not   something  rather   peculiar  about  such   statements?   It   is   undisputed  that  white  labor  is   employed  almost   entirely  in  the mills   across  the line. It was shown at  a late session of  a government, commission, at  winch   Senator   Tcm-plcton   was  present,  that  the   total import   of  American   lumber   into  Manitoba     was  less  tlmn   ten  per cent, of   the supply, and  yet our Vancouver^-- men  say to   the loggers,   "You  must not  cxpoil your  lo->s,  neither will     wc  buy  ihcm,"   and   cry   out  to       the  government     for  piolection  against  Ameiican   lumber.  It costs   75 cents  per  J,000   lo   tow  logs  across       to  Pugct   Sound; white labor is      employed,  as against Oriental in Van.  coiner, yet American lumbermen, according to the wail of distress emitted periodically from thc B.C. Lum-  bcriiiciis' Association, arc ruining the  lumber markets in Manitoba and iho  worth west.      How  much  of this    is  true, and how much false?  The following article, taken fiom  a Seattle i press despatch, is ' worth  reading if anyone-is interested in  conditions as  they  exist:  "Wasfiinglon   lum-bcr' mills       have  more work  on  hand  at the  present  lime     than  they     can     convincently  take care  of.    Orders are-slreami'ng  in daily,   and   from' all   parts   of the  United   States,   almost,   inquiry      is  being  received.    Seattle  mills      arc  getting more than  their -share      of  this  enormous   business,   and   among  the  order's  placed  are some  of  record-breaking   proportions.  "Local   mills   arc  now bidding   on  two rush   orders.    W. R.   Dickinson,  assistant  lumber agent for  the   American   Car and Foundry  Company  of  St.   Louis,-has   called   for   bids   on  lhc  largest  order of car   siding ever  brought to the  Coast-   The material  is lo be   used   in   thc  construction   oi  cars for   lhc   Santa  Fe  system.    R.  J. Stevens,   representing the  Barney  &  Smith   Car Company,   of  Dayton,  O.,  is in thc city  for  the purpose  of  purchasing   an enormous   amount     of  material for  the Erie Railway Company.  Mr. Stevens'   order  calls     foi  car'siding,   sills   and  everything      in  the way  of lumber than enters* into  the  construction   of   a car.    This   is  thc    first     time   that the Eric has  come to  the Pacific coast,  for   lumber.    In   the  past  it has  used  eithci  white   pine  or yellow  pine,   but   the  high prices   of   the latter   preclude the  possibility of further orders. <=  "The heau-liy condition of  the lumber     market   on  thc Coast,   co'ipled  with   the recent advance  in   the  price  of logs, elTcctnc October  1.  ha'-'e convinced   lumiberincn  that   Uie  tune    is  opportune for  a readjustment of the  price    list,   and at the next  meeting  of  the Pacific    Coast Lumber Manufacturers'    Association   the   cmeslion  will he discussed.   A "mail"  Vote has  already  been   taken  among  the nulls  on    thc subject,   which   resulted   in a  majoiily declaring in  favor of an increase   on   many   items  of  thc  list.  "A specially called meeting of thc  values      committees   of the      Pacific  Coast Association     and    the  Southwestern   Washington   Association   was  held   at   Central ia  last   Friday     and  'canvassed   the  situation   thoroughly.  It  was decided   that   thc   list   would  sustain   an   advance,   and   it. will      le  readjusted     accordingly,    subject    tn  ratification   by the  two associations.  Until   such- ratification   is voted,   Mir  revised   list  will'not  he published "  * in niuiHBT - atf-tno-S *  Get in  touch   with the new correct hat styles.  er*,  35 Our  showing of these  exquisite  ^5 creations of head=dressis equal to  any in B.
