TACOMA BUSINESS MEN WANT MORE RAILROADS The Statements of Well Known Citizens All Agree That Tacoma Should Make Active Efforts to Get Them That Tacoma should have at least an other big railroad is the unanimous opin ion of the business men of Taiorna. All believe that the Northern I'aeitic haa done much for this city, hut at the same time they wish to get away from the fact that Tacoma has but niie railroad. Now that the Harrinian lines will probably be ex tended here the much wanted addition may soon be had. Tacoma has come to be known in all sections of the country aa a Northern Pacific town. Good citi zens say that, was all right when the city was young, but '"she is getting to be a big one now."

No. 12 CHICAGO 1W MOURNING THE LOSS OF HOI DEID Two Hundred Funerals Held in One Day --Entire City Bowed in Silence- Business at a Standstill-- - Many Bodies Yet Unidentified (By R. E. Norton.) CHICAGO, Jan. 2.—Beneath a gloomy sky in oppressive silence and an atmo pphere which seems ominously laden with death, Chicago is today a veritable city of mourning. Whole streets which are usually resonant with the clang of com mercialism, whose pavements are wont to be thronged at this season with merry makers, whose towering buildings are ac customed to the cheer of throbbing ac tivity, are so silent that the rattle ot funeral trapping.* bears with in a sharp and sudden shock. Funeral after funer passes until the grim buildings themselves seem to be forming an alley-like guardway to the vast gate of the death. The pave ments are either deserted or habited only by those who stand with an expression ot hopeless, oppressive and pathetic griet. They have changed the sc...

It exhaustive ly reviews all actions taken regarding canal matters and required 28 printed pages, embodying reports, telegrams and letters. Almost all of these have been published from time to time.
