Thr liveliest topic to be disciitsed before fhe twenty-first annual convention of th« Southwestern Lumbernifn’s convention, which opent in Convention hall this afternoon, is, a« most of the lumberman now here see it, the question of reciprocal demurrage. That doesn’t mean much to anyone but a shipper. But all the lumber dealers are up in arm» against the practice the railway companies have of charipnfl: a dollar for every day lumber reraatns in a car after forty-eight hotjri. WHAT OX* DEAT.Kl 8AVf. •^t's all one sided," said Edgar S. Mmer of Bethany, Mo., a former oflScer erf th»* as(»ociation, at the Coate» house 1 a«t night. "The railroads can make us »ait six months or a year for a carload ( Í «'if and we can do nothing. Yet once they have it placed on the siding at our yards v« turn to and get the car Vmrtv in two days or pay a penalty.

We dealers ''■fl that the railways are taking their <pife out on the lumber companies since ihe two cent lassenger rate. They seem fhmk that because lumber isn’t perishable they can set out a car of it any time snd let it wait indefinitely. Meanwhile, (.«me poor fellow is waiting in the rain !^r ?hirgles to patch his roof.” OTHF» gt.’iSTrONS TO BE COKRinERED. The lumbermen expect to start agitation for a national law requiring railroad com- Í inies to tran«!port freight in a reasonable »npth of time—a law which the interstate • ommerce commission can enforce. .Another question to be discussed is the ^«•ablishment of a code of ethics—an ^erecment made by wholesaler and jobber 'vith the retailer regarding contracts and •*rm« The members of the association ome from the four state«, Missouri, Kan«as, Oklahoma and .Arkansas, and oniprise l)r*th wlv>le'^aler^ and retailers.

Fisher at the Hotel Baltimore last night. Mr. Fisher is pre«ident of the I,emhi Smelting company, which is just completing its plant at Hahn, Id "In previous years, the mining companies in our neighborhood have been spending $35 or $40 a ton sending their ore back to Pennsylvania to be sinelted With the smelter on the ground, it will cost them about $20 a ton. The mines in the Hahn district produce an ore from which copper, lead, silver and some gold is taken. When this is smelted the bullion bars must still be sent back Flast for retinement. but the bulk is decidedly decreased and the expense materially les- i sened, ’ Mr. Either was born and educated in North Missouri. He went to Idaho to practice law and the opening in the smelting field drew him into business. He says that while he is a Missourian, he doesn't like to sec the Idaho people spend so much of their money in Pennsylvania. DU. Til.HOr TO ao O.v A VISIT.

We wrote to quite a number and received many replies— letters of eulogy, so intelligent and sincere as to be absolutely convincing of the great value of the work. We printed, by permission, several of these letters.
