SHIPPERS WORRY OYER NEW RULES Demurrage System Proposed by Kailroads That Will Mean Thousands to Detroiters. Changes in the demurrage rules now being considered by the railroads operating in .Michigan formed the principal topic of discussion by members of the Detroit Traffic association at its first meeting, held in iiie board of commerce rooms last night.

The large army of persons who have found relief from many chronic ailments by changing from coffee to Tostum as a daily beverage, is growing each day. It Is only a simple question of trying it for oneself in order to know the joy of returning health as realized by an Ills, young lady. She writes: "I had been a coffee drinker nearly all my life and it affected my stomach eiuiscd Jnnonmia and I was seldom without a headache. I had heard about Postum and how beneficial it was. so concluded to quit coffee and try it. "I was delighted with the change. I enn now alecp well and seldom ever have headache. My stomach has gotreu strong and I can eat without suffering afterwards. I think my whole system greatly benefited by Postum. "Mv brother also suffered from stomach trouble while he drank coffee, but now. since using Postum he feels so much better he would not eo back to coffee for anything.

YERNOK CASHIER IN HOSPITAL HERE Ned Sergeant Suffering f From Wounds Robbers Inflicted, So He Declares. HOTEL CLERKS DID NOT KNOW HE HAD BEEN HURT Supposed Assault Not Reported to Police Says He'll Return When He Recovers. Ned Sergeant, cashier of the defunct Vernon bank, is in Grace hospital fufferlng from injuries which he declares were inflicted by robbers who waylaid him Sunday night, struck him down and stole $20 from him. Sergeant stated last night that he knew nothing of the crash at the bank. The voting banker was taken to the hospital from the Franklin house. He had a long cut on his arm which he said was made by u knife in the hands of one of the robbers. Employes at the hotel assert they failed to notice that he was injured when he returned to his room riun-day night. 'I didn't know anything was wrong until .he called me to his room," said the clerk last night. The police are not working on the alleged robbery and assault, and Sergeant ha3 not reported it to them. Sergeant's wife and his brother-in-law, C. R. Paine, of Vernon, arrived in Detroit yesterday afternoon and spent several hours at the bedside of the cashier. Sergeant has been missing from Vernon since Thanksgiving day. His bank is In the hands of an examiner and it is estimated that there is a shortage of $6,000 in the funds. Sergeant has expressed his intention of returning to Vernon when' he becomes strong enough. It was reported at the hospital last night that he was rapidly recovering. "He just came down to Detroit for Thanksgiving," said Paine. "He didn't know a thing about the shortage until today. This talk about his leaving the work in the bank to a clerk is untrue. He had no assistants, and did it himself. It was just a case of overdrafts by the depositors." Sargennl's Story Doubted In Vernon. Vernon, Mich'.. November 30. He-cciver McLaughlin of the closed Exchange bank has furnished a bond of $15,000, which was fixed on an approximate condition of the bank as shown by a preliminary examination of the books. This places the assets at about $14.000,. largely in realty. The liabilities are estimated at S1S.000, but it is believed they will exceed this amount. Some i of the largest depositors arc farmers, one having $2,300 in the bank. The local lodge of Maccabees and other societies are among the depositors. Manv people hero are inclined to doubt "the story of Ned Sargcant, tho proprietor of the hank, found in a Detroit hospital injured as the result of an encounter with holdup men. as he claims.

WANT DETROIT CAPITAL Pittsburg' Men Offer to Locate Plant in Wyandotte. If the capitalists of Detroit and vlcinitv can be persuaded to .purchase $1,000,000 worth of stock, a steel plant for the manufacture of auto accessories Is a possibility for a down river location. Pittsburg men, it is said, are ready to put $300,000 into the concern, but think that Detroit capital should supply the rest. They now hold an option on about 40 acres of land along the river front in the salt marshes of Keorso and have looked over the long river front of Zug island as a probable location. Convinces Police He's Innocent.

Special to The Free Press. Cleveland, November 30. At a meeting of the advisory committee of the Great Lakes Protective association and New York representatives of the underwriters held here today it was decided to grant extensions on insurance to midnight, December 8. Sailings from December 8 to December 10 will not be considered until December 6, when another meeting will be held. The rate from December 5 to December S was fixed at 1 per cent, and that means that steamers that sail after the regular insurance expires will have to get fancy freight rates. The extra insurance will cost 0,000 and 10,000-ton ships from $3,500 to $3,800. That means an advance o 40 cents a ton on coal and a cent a bushel on wheat. Few Boats Will Run After Dec. 5; Rate of 1 Per Cent Prohibits Few if any lake vessels of any considerable capacity will leave port after midnight of December 5, when the regular Insurance of the season will expire. There is a good reason why they will not do so. The rate of 1 per cent on the value of the hull into which the cargo is to be loaded is really a prohibitive one for all practical purposes, as a little ciphering will show. For instance, the value of a steel vessel capable of moving 0,000 tons is about 350,000 or $360,000. This is equivalent to 40 cents a ton on 9,000 tons of coal. When the insurance alone on one trip mounts up near the freight on the cargo carried, the owner anxious for the freights from one more trip will quickly lose the incentive for the trip. The underwriters, to put It bluntly, have determined to take an active part in the closing of navigation December l, as far as the taking of new cargoes is concerned; and thev seem to have the whip-hand. For no wise owner or manager cares to operate so valuable a piece of property as a modern steel freighter without protection against storm or collision or other mishap. "This rate fixed by the Insurance companies means that vessels will not start out after December 5 midnight," said President .Livingstone of the Lake Carriers. The whirlwind finish that was expected in the freight market has failed to materialize, and there 13 considerable disappointment in marine circles. Vesselmen of experience looked for a coal rate of 75 cents a ton to the head of the lakes, but 60 or 65 cents seems to be about the maximum that will be reached, except in possibly a few sporadic cases. Owners are at a loss to account for the quiet close in freights, and say that there must be more coal at the head of the lakes than has been stated. "Indications now are that everything that can turn a wheel will be busy in 1010." said President Livingstone. "The demand for ore In the iron and steel trade promises to he very strong, and the rate for carrying it will doubtless be 75 cents at the beginning of the season. "This rale did not go Into effect this war in time to prove of much gain "to the smaller carriers. The Increase was made early in November, while the increased wage schedule was put In effect in October, adding to the cost of operation. The larger carriers, that were able to make moderate profits under lhe US-cent rate, of course were the gainers in large measure when the rate was raised to 7d cents." i VESSEL PASSAGES. Detroit.

NOTED WRECKER BURNS AND GOES TO BOTTOM OF LAKE SUPERIOR WRECKING Port Huron, Mich., November 30. Two hours after the tug Ottawa, owned by the Keid Wrecking company, of this city, had released the steamer Hoyt, from Its perilous position on Outer Island, Lake Superior, a blaze broke out in the tug, and despite the heroic efforts of the crew to suppress it, the boat was totally destroyed, her hull sinking in six fathoms of water In Lake Superior. After releasing the Hoyt, the Ottawa proceeded with her to Red-cliff, Wis., which Is about six miles from Bayfield. Capt. J. 13. Cooper of this city, and who is master of the Ottawa, went ashore to get orders where the Hoyt was to be taken, and it was just a short time after his return that tho blaze was discovered. When they realized that their efforts were of no avail, the crew abandoned the vessel, and had no trouble In reaching shore safely.
