AMOK PAU.T TKLBBBAM. tn W. T, NOftTON. Cor. Third and Plain Stra*U, Alton, HI. TUESDAY EVK.. MAY 8. •'HUNT the »t»tute books through and'througb. and you will not find u single law enacted by tho Democratic party for the boncfit ol the laboring man," was the claim made at a recent meeting of tho Indianapolis labcr party. WUhlts. What h»« become of Wichita? Last winter our exchange* were filled with accounts of tlio wonderful Wichita boom, but for tho last month or two it seems to have dropped out of sight. Omaha, Kansas City, Ft. Scott and Ft. Smith appear to be tho favorites with land speculators at present. Effect of tne Inter State Commerce taw. .The now railway rates under tho Interstate Commerce law have been _in force nearly a,month,and there has been no dearth of information as to resulting "restriction of general trade" and "paralyzing" or "stopping of indus triei." More recently, however, there is noticed a distinct decline in the number and tone of oritcisms. Bradstreet's, of April 80th, presents telegraphed summaries of interviews with over 1,500 of the larger manufacturers, shippers and merchants at thirty four cities as to the effect of tho new rail rates on business. In regard to .the interviews it says: "These are important, as they show that sentiment is not all one way —that there[are;. many shippers who want the law tested. Some of the loudest complaints have not been caused by the long and short haul clause. It is likely that as much trouble has resulted from inability on the part of railroads to promptly furnish i tariff rates to any and all points as to higher cost of transportation. This is being gradually remedied. One trunk line alone has already prepared over ninety special tariff rates. This means that the new rates are to be slowly but surely readlusted. Less is hoard now from shippers who used to enjoy, heavy rebates. They do. not sell at such and such a price "delivered," but why should they P Tho report shews that a feeling of indifference to the new rates, or, in some oaics, of preference for them with attendant conditions, is wide spread."/ "At St. Louis, Mo., the majority of those Interviewed in tho following lines say that the new railway rates are not unfavorable: Wool, boots and shoes, merchant iron, including heavy hardware. The majenty in the following lines report them unfavorable: Cotwn, dry goods, groceries, clothing, metals and machinery, gram and flour. Many .are hopeful of improvement in the workings of the law. The most gen- oral objection is tho uncertainty of rates and inability to contract ahead."' nlHlSl'ERIAL ASSOCIATION.
