Mclachlan Says California .Alone Coujd nave 75 fee ivnt. New York, March 10.-t-CaIifornla could save 75 per cent, in freight on annual shipments to the East of $10,-000,000 worth of fruit, Representative James McLachlan of. California told the Merchants' Association here today, if the government would equip and operate a line of steamers from California to the Western entrance of the Panama canal. The government already operates one line . between New York and Colon, on the eastern coast of the Isthmus, connecting with the Panama railroad, but the only steam ers serving the western coast are privately owned. .' . This rivate line,- said Representa tive McLachlan is not effective f-r competition because the railroads pay 1 100,00 annually to the company for the privilege of naming the rat-s. Oranges now cost $1.30 a box to Bhip by rail from coast to coast. By steam er, said Representative - McLachlan, the rate ought to be 30 cents. Be cause It is not the government ii:a that now carries heavy cargoes of sup plies from Aew York to the canal zone, but gets little or no business In return. The association voted, its thanks to Representative McLachlan, but took no other action on his recommendations. LIBERALS ADOPT NEW PLAN TO KEEP CONTROL. Ministers to Have Supplies Voted For hit weeks Only. , London, March ' 10. The ministers adopted a new device in the war between the Lords and Commons by ask. Ing Parliament today to vote supplies for six weeks only, instead of from four to six months as has been the practice for the last fifteen years. The fact is not concealed that this device is intended to keep the power of the purse in the hands of the House of Commons, In readiness for a fresh constitutional crisis, which is expected in the month of May, when the Lords probably .will reject the resolutions curtailing their power of veto, so as to bring about the resignation of the government. ; If supplies were voted for six months, Mr. Balfour could then take office and carry on the government, but with the necessity of coming to the House of Commons for a new vote on supply he would be defeated. The conservatives In the House of Commons today Indignantly denounced the government's action as a "shabby trick in its policy or evasion and chicanery." Their newspapers echo this sentiment.

It would be impossible for any part of the money given the foundation by Mr. Rockefeller to be set apart for h:s heirs.

Hamilton Holt, managing editor of the "Independent," New York will speak at New Britain on Sunday evening, or in Hartford Tuesday morning.. From Granite to Cement (Worcester Telegram.) An old granite quarry in Brockton is being changed over into a cement pit. That is not quite such startling news as Taul Revere spread about Middlesex manyycara ago, but the prospect is that it means a good deal to New England. There are thousands of forsaken granite quarries about this commonwealth and others to the' north. Some of them are so old that they have been forgotten by all but the hunters who stumble into them while roaming the forests. One of them is in Worcester involved In a legal tangle, which recalls some of the old values placed on that kind of rock supply for tha builders and places them In comparison with the later methods of construction. Granite is still used extensively and there is yet to come a great deal of business with the well split blocks, but there is new history to be made and that will have more 'cement In' it. Therefore, that old granite quarry in Brockton has a place in the news columns for a new reason. A Boston company is to place in It a large stone-crusher and make the crumbling granite into meal, very fine dust or rock and that is to be shaped into cement bricks, urns, bowls and various forms that'bullders use In fitting houses for habitation. That is, a great mass of granite has been found useless for cutting out shapes in the native rock and therefore it is to be ground up and made Into rock of shapes such as are wanted now and as cement In its more modern application makes possible. There are throughout New England so many of that kind of granite quarries that the start in Brockton may mean a considerable business In taking them up to dig more wealth out of them.

Don't blame your stomach or your luck when your meals declare war on your system. . W'hen the stomach won't do Its work it is because it 'cannot. ' When foul smelling odors come from your stomach, when the head aches and the sourness of mouth every morning makes you hate your breakfast, when dreams and nightmare assail you, don't give up the fight This Is the appeal of nature, and It should be heard. Over-eating, late suppers, poorly chewed food, too rich pastries and under-done cooking are some of the causes of the stomach's ill health. W'hen the stomach is busy, it presses and churns all the liquid matter from food and with its Juices dissolves Into liquid form or pulp everything which comes into It. If such food be poisonous it effects the Juices, attacks the stomach, goes into the bloed and Weakens the entire system. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest a full meal easily without material assistance from the 3tomach. They will restock the gastric flu'd with all the elements needed. They build up the blood, destroy sour taste, bad- breath, belching, stomach and bowel trouble and quickly restore natural conditions. , One grain of Stuart's Dyspeps'a Tablets will digest 3,000 grains of food in the stomach or in a glass vial without aid of the human digestive apparatus.

After a meal one of these little tablets when it enters the stomach mingles with the Juices, attacks the food and digests It. It removes the fermented and decayed mass, lying stagnant there and eases the stomach at once. It is wholly a question for you to solve.
