We want $100,000, which, added to, the insurance, will build what is needed. I maka on appeal to all our friends throughout Christendom, to all denominations, to all creeds, and those of no creed at all, to come to our assistance.

Oct. 14 —Tho tendency of railway lines- to consolidate, which has been shown recently, has attracted tho attention of Judge Cooley, of tha inter-st-ite cbmmorco commission, and about two weeks ago he wrote a letter to Chairman Finley, of the Trans-Missouri association, asking him for B n ctplnnnf.lon. Mr. Finlwy's reply is to the effect that before tha -day* of tbo interstate commoroa law subst.intlally Uiil- form rates word obtained by pooling. Tho law prohibits this latter, and the weaker roads are now compelled to earn their maintenance! from traffic originating with them.

Tho consequence is that tha Htrongor railways, looking about for some ineaiH whereby they may -remedy this evil can 'discover buton^.anl thit U toa bsorb the weaker ones, and by this menin bring about that uniformity and reasonableness of rates which the law contemplates and tho relative adjustments which are commercially equitable.
