TilE RULING OF THE COMMISSION
Chairman of Inter-State Commerce
Comxiiission Writes, in Reply to
Protest From Massachusetts Press
Association, That it Seems Plain to
the Commission That the New Law
Permits Payment for Services of
Inter-State Carriers Only in Money.
Washinon, specia.-Under a ru

mission, transportation over railroad
lines no longer may be given to news

A protest against this ruling has
been received by the commission from
the Massachusetts Press Association.
The association unanimously voted t*
"enter i*s protest against the report
ed ruling in holding that the payment
for railroid transportation at full
rates in advertising shall be treated
on any oticr basis than that of trans
portation paid for in Cash."
In a letter to Secretary Hefferman.
in response to the protest, Chairman
Knapp, K the commission, says in
part, after quoting the section of the
I law which prohibits the issuance o.
free tra:sportation paid for in any
other v:av than In eash:
"Yon :re, of course. aware that all
tariffs flmed in compliance with the
regulating statute name rates in dol
lars and cnts and do net in any case
providoe tha transportation can be
paid fo~r with property. It seems
plain to the commission that the jaw
above qtted. coupled with the fact
stated, permits payment for services
of intCr-Sta.te carriers only in moinev.
"This ruling of the comsion in
no wrv iterfercs with or abridges
the rights of private contracts. News
papers and their advertising space
may be freely exchanged for any
species of property upon such terms
as may be acceptable to the partic
to the transactio:n, but the facilities
I of the publie carrier are not private
property, nor are- they the subject
of bargain and sale like merchan
dise. The right to travel or have
property carried by rail, like the right
to the common highway. is not a con
tract right but a plitical right, the
very essence of which is equality.
"Conceding that the advertising
arrangemnents in question are ordi
narily made and carried out in good'
faith, it seems plain to mec that these
arrangements must as a practical
matter involve some measure of- dis
erimination, anld it is not easy for me
to see how an honest newspaper can
seriously object to a ruling of the
conmssion which appears to be in
obvious accord with . the provisions

Four Story Building of Brick and

Morning Hour, Estimates of the
Dead Varying Widely.
Kansas City, Mo.. Special.-In the
ruins of the chamber of commerce
building in Kansas City, Kan., de
stroyed by fire early Thursday, there
are anywhere from half a dozen to 30
bodies, according to estimates given
cut by firemen. The actual loss, or,
life will not be known until a thor
ough search of the ruins can be made.
probably not then, as some of the
firemen assert that a number oi bodies
must have been burned to ashes. The
building. used as a tenement house
and containing 100 rooms, held, as
near as can be learned, between 200
and 300 persons at the time the fire
broke out at 12:30 o'clock. Most of
these composed families, many others
were transients, whose names are un
known. Of the injured, scattered
among half a dozen hospitals and at
private hormes. 25 were more or less
seriously hurt. Two or three of these
at least, will die.
The total financial damage is esti
mated at $100.000. Of this amount,
$60.000 was on the building, which
was owened by IV. A. Bunkec. The
building was insured for $40,000.
Of Brick and Stone Alone.
The ehamber of commerce build
ing was situated at Park and Central
streets, in the River View District of
Kansas City, Kan. The structure was
four stories in height, with a deep
basement and faced the two streets.
It was built of brick and stone alone.
It contained one hundred rooms,
almost. all of which were, as far as
can be learned, occupied by families
or individual laboring men or railway
employes at the time the fire started.
The ground floor was occupied by
W. A. Lovelane's barber shop, Ed
ward T. Summers' drug store. Central
Avenue Gas Fixture Company, Mrs.
Belle Wagner's restaurant, the Smith
Overall Laundry, and The Labor
The fire broke out on the ground
floor from some unknown cause.
When the firemen arrived the entire
building was in flames. So quickly
did the filames spread that a few min

the scores of occupants, was cut offt

Will Succeed Metcalf.
Washington, Special.-The foliow
ing statement regarding prospe-tive
changes in President Roosevelt's cab
inet was made pubiic:
"On the retirement of Secretary
Shaw and Attorney General Moody
from the cabinet the following chang
es will be made:
"Secretary of the Treasury-Hon.
George B. Cortelyou.
"Postmaster General-lon. George
Von L. Meyer.
"Attorney General-SHon. Charles
"Secretary of the Navy-Hon. Vic

"Secretary of Commerce and Labor
-Hon. Oscar S. Straus."
The general understanding for some
time has been that Anorney General
oodv will retire on the 1st of the
!umincg January and that Secretary
Shaw will follow him on the 4th of
March. On the first of the year,
therefore, Mr. Bontparte. who is now
Secretary of the Navy, will succeed
Mr. Moody as Attorney General and.
he will in turn be succeeded by Mr.
Metcalf, the Secretary of Commerce
and Labor, the latter's place being
filled by Mr. Straus. Mr. Cortelyou
ow Postmaster General, will take
Secretary., Shaw's place on the 4th of
March ai whieh timae Mr. Meyer is
to become Postmaster General.
Mr. Meyer, who will become Post
master 'General, is Ambassador to
Russia, to which place he was ap
pointed on March 6. 1905, having been
promoted to that office following his
service as the ambassador to Italy
from 1900 to 1905. He is a native of
Massachusetts and has been well
known as a business man.
Straus Appointment a Surprise.
The appointment of Mr. Straus
caused considerable surprise as it will
be the first ease where a citizen of
the Hebrew faith has been made a
member of the President's vabinet.
He was born December 3rd, 1850. and
is well known as a merchant, diplo
mat and author. He represented the
United States as minister to Turkey
on two different occasions, and was
appointed by President Roosevelt to
ll the vacancy c:.used by the death
of ex-President Harrison as a mem
er of the permanent Court of Arbi
tration at The Hague.
National Bank Circulation.
Washington, Special.-Aeting Sec
retary Keep of the Treasury Depart
ment announced, that the applications
for inecase in the national bank cir
ulation under Secretary Shaw's offer
wvill be favorably acted upon in the
order in which they arc received at
the Treasury. If, however, the nat
ional bank should apply for an in
rese of two or three millions or
even less, it probably would be neces
sary, in the interest of, the smaller
banks, to grafmt the application as to
only a part of the sum asked for.
and so extend the provileges confer
red by the Secretary's oider to as
large number of banks as possible.

T'Le propsed statute is the outcome
of stndy on the subject by eminent

o>-enlled divorce evil, and the pro

Practically every State and Terri

eneral provisions and is enti
led "an act regulating annulment
>f marriage and divorce."
Hearings to Be Public.
While little or no change is made c
n the given causes for divorce as now I
tristing, certain provisions of the new c
tet were evidently made with a view i
.f arreting the increasing demand i
:or legal severance .of martial bonds.
nder these stipulation secret or star I

It is also provided "that a decree
issolving the marriage tie so com
etely as to permit the remarriage
)f either party should not become op
rative until the lapse of a reasonable
ength of time after hearing or trial
ipon the merits ot the ease."
Another enactment of the proposed
iew law prohibits the solicitation of
divorce case by advertisemen, cir
'nlar or otherwise and prescribes for
~uh an (offense a fm-e of not more
han $1,000 and imprisonment' of not,
ore than one year.
Annulment of the marriage con
