.toberls,of the Pennsylvania, Does^Not Believe That Pools Are Best^for the Roads.
Vantuo-iie.of tli. Canadian I'aciflc. Tell* of^the Business of Hit Road- Atchi^^son Officer* Llected.
NewYork, May 9.^ The senate inter^^state commerce committee resumed its^work this morning, end President Roberta^of the Pennsylvania road testified. lie said^that since the i'nited States began to regu^^late the railroads by special legislation the^latter had heen placed at a disadvantage in^competition with those of Canada. The^effect of the Grand Trunk road being inde^^pendent of the legislation which affects^those of the I'nited States is a constant^menace to the tatter. ^1 don't know that^at present the Canadian roads do any^serious injury to American commerce,^ he^-Hid. ^but they are in a position to do so at^any time the managers see tit.
'Whatadvantages have the Canadian^roads over those of the I'nited States^was asked.
TheCanadian Pacific is beavily subsi-^d /.ed by the government to encourage the^development of the country. The Grand^Trunk and Canadian Pacific draw their^supplies from England free of duty.
Canroads in the I'nited States be ope^^rated as cheaply as the Canadian roads .'
Thereis considerable doubt as to the^answer to that question.
Whatremedy have you to suggest as an^amendment to the law that would place^Americ an roads and Canadian roads on an^equality'.'''
Ithink any foreign corporation doing^business in the I'nited States should he^subject to the same laws as the roads of^our own country. If Canadian roads are
rrmittedto carry traffic in snd out of the^nited States, they should be made amen^^able to four law. Of course we cannot^oblige foreign roads to conform to our^laws when out of the country, but while^thev do business within our borders, the^same law should apply to both. In fact, 1^am not sure foreign roads should be allowed^the privileges they enjoy in this country,^even if under these conditions. 1 cannot^quite understand why foreign roads should^be allowed to go in and out of the I'nited^states while foreign vessels are not al^^lowed to do a coasting business with this^Ciuntry.
SenatorGorman^There is a move on^foot, 1 understand, to construct a through^line from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast^to connect at either end with a subsidized^line of steamers, its object being to take^the trade that comes from China and Japan^and transport it to the eastern coast. What^chance, in your opinion, do American^roads stand of controlling this trade
HubertsThe American roads have tin-^first call on all such trade, and under equal^conditions with the Canadian roads could^control it.
Robertssaid he was in favor of pooling.^Under the old system of pooling certain of^the roads kept part of the contract, but^other conditions were violated.
SenatorBlair^Then it is not ^ true prin^^ciple of railroad business that a combina^^tion is better than competition
Roberts Hardly j Ism in favor of fair^competition under proper legislation. If^this could be brought about it would be^much better than any pools.
PresidentW. C. Vanhorne, of the Cana^^dian Pacific, was called and described the^Canadian Pacific from Halifax to Van^^couver, thence by line of subside-d steam^^ers to China, Japan and Australia. The^Canadian roads compete with American^roads for trade from San Francisco, China,^Japan and Alaska, and some of the trade^from Ontario to Manitoba.
SenatorCullom^What percentage of^yrurtraffic is from the I'nited States
VanhorneI do not know the exact fig^^ures, but aside from coal the percentage is^very small. The transcontinental trade^from China, Japan and the wt stern part^of the country over the Canadian Pacific is^constantly increasing. It gets 10 or 12 per \^cent of all the western and Pacific trade.
Theimpression is general,^ said Presi^^dent Vanhorne, ^that the relations of the I^Canadian Pacific road with the govern^merit are exceedingly intimate: but I as^^sure you the relations are anything but in^timate, and not as cordial as those between^the Pennsylvania road and the government^at Washington. Then nearly all our rails^and material came from the l~nited States. |^and altogether we have no advantage over^the American lines, although labor is some-^what cheaper with us. The greater por^^tion of our coal comes from Pennsylvania !^and Ohio, and therefore costs us more than j^it does your roads.
Vanhornewas followed by President and^item ral Manager Newell, of the Lake^shore A Michigan Southern. He testified^that his r^iad suffered severely from the |^competition practices of the Canadian^roads, and offered to furnish the committee^with documentary evidence of the unfair !^dealings and methods of the Grand Trunk '^railway in particular, which he said was^now one of the longest carriers out of Chi^^cago. Chairman Cullom accepted his offer.^President and General Manager Led yard, i^of the Mefcafraa Central, said his road was^losing business rapidly by reason of the^fact that the Canadian roads were practical !^ly free to do as they pleased, while American^roads were fettereu by the interstate law^l.edyard was quite bitter against the Can^^adian railroads and favored spe. ial legisla^^tion against them.
I.ul I^^^ ^ I'rm ffdlnri of the t ongrrp-^tional Kcpresent^Ui^e* at Lixingaton.
Livino-ton. May 9 ^[Special to the In^^dependent. J^The third and last day's ses^^sion of the Congregational conference^opened to-day at 10 a. m. with devotional^exercises by Kev. S A. Wallace. Imme^^diately alter the opening exercises a paper^was read by K~v. Wm. Ewing. of James^^town, Dak., the subject of which was^Catechetical Instructions. He gave a gen^^eral account of the Congregational Sabbath^school work in Dakota and Montana and^the methods of the Sabbath school publish^^ing society of the denomination. At 2 p.^m. there was a genera! discussion, the sub^^ject being, ^How to reach the masses.^^Kev. W. C. Fowler opened the discussion^with a very able address in^which be said that there was^a prevailing opinion that the church was^partial to wealth and favored the rich as^against the laboring man. He said that in^cases of strikes and labor troubles minis^^ters and the editors of religious journals^should make careful inquiry into the^causes and not be influenced in the wrong^direction.
Fraternalgreetings of the Episcopal^church were then* ably presented by Rev-^J. W. Van Ingen. He argued that the di.^vision of the Christian church must in the^nature of things be a sin, but just where^the sin lay he was unable to^say. He thought that perhaps the^Episcopal church had been severe^in persisting in non-essentials: that^the only thing to which he clung and^which divided him from the other churches^was the belief in apostolic succession.^Kev. W. B. Coouihs also extended the fra^^ternal greetings of the Methodist Episcopal^cburcb in a short address.
Atthe close of the afternoon session the^members of the conference drove in a body^to the canyon, a distance of five miles.^The evening service was conducted by^Kev. Wm. Ewing, the subject being ^The^Only Salvation.^ After the evening ser^^vice the committee on resolutions re^^ported that the thanks of the members of^the conference be extended to families who^had extended hospitality to the visiting^brethren and to the Northern Pacific rail^^road for generous reduction in fare, and^that the resolutioi. s be printed in the news^^papers. The next annual conference of the^denomination will be held in Helena, the^first Tuesday in May. 185*0.

Washington.May 9.^[Special to the^Independent |^Assistant Secretary Chand^^ler to-day reversed one of sparks' decisions^in the case of Charles Lehman, assignee of^William W. Dewitt, who maffe a pre^^emption entry in Helena district. The de^fendant proved up on the land and sold it^to Lehman, but Sparks found a clerical^error in the proof and held the land for^cancellation, ever after Lehman had made^$30,000 improvements upon it. Dewitt re^^fused to correct the mistake made and^Lehman asked that a patent be issued in^proof that Dewitt bad complied with the^law. This Sparks refused for the reason^that tbe law and the rules ^allow a pre-^emptor only, if living, to make publica^^tion notice on pre-emption affidavit.^^Chandler holds differently, and says the^equity in the case should allow Leh^^man to show Dewitt had complied^with the law. But he also directs^that a special agent be present at the hear^^ing, as when DeWitt made his final proof^only five acres were broken, yet the im^provements were valued at 87.00* and now^are worth ^30,000. The town of Cotton^wood has grown up on the land and the^secretary is of the opinion that the land^may have been entered for the purpose of^establishing a town site, instead of for ag^^ricultural purposes.

awarethe league advised tenants not to en^^ter the land court after the passage of tbe^act establishing that court in ISM, and sub^^sequent events justified that advice. He^only knew of one Instance where the league^had been indiscreet. This indiscretion^consisted of tbe passage of a resolution by^a branch of the league to publish in its dis^^trict a list of persons not members of the^league. He protested against this action,^and the publication of the list was thereup^on abandoned.
Asthe league spread secret societies van^^ished. People learned to prefer open par^^liamentary action and to dislike secrecy.^Throughout his diocese cases of boycotting^bad been few, although the leagues were^strong in that district The only sense in^which boycotting ought to be tolerated^came under the name of exclusive dealing.^An j t ing like intimidation was reprehen^^sible. The members of the league held^that boycotting kept the country free from^outrages. Witness did not approve of re^^fusing to sell the necessaries of life to a^man under boycott He understood tbe^plan of campaign would be purely volun^^tary. The combination did nut imply boy^cotting.

sad Mishap of a Washington Territory^Woman on Her W;i * ^ .,-t
Rochester,N. Y'., May 9.^A week or^more ago Mrs. Chas. simonson, of Wash^^ington terr.tory, started to visit friends in^New Tork city in company with her little^girl of 5 years. She was apparently in^good health, but the excitement of the^journey seemed to wear upon her. She^was unused to travel and the constant^move and loss of rest so affected her that^when still some distance from Buffalo she^became violently insane. She was affected^by a dread that some one was going to kill^her. With great difficulty the conductor^prevented her from jumping from the train^with the child in her arms. When the^train reached here she was taken to an in^^sane asylum with the child. The mental^condition of the latter causes some appre^^hension. Mrs. Simonson's husband is a^prominent lumber dealer of Washington^territory.

Sidney,N. S. W., May 9 ^Dr. Knappe,^late German consul to Samoa, has arrived^here. Advices from Samoa to Apr I 30 say^the natives are quiet The position of the^hoatiles is unchanged. Admiral Kimberly^of the U nited Slates Navy, on the sugges^^tion of Mataafa, tried through Dr. Knappe^to persuade Tamasese to agree to peace.^Tamosese declined unless he was^recognized as king. Admiral Kim^^berly thereupon issued a proclamation^urging the natives to maintain peace. The ,^steamer Rockton. which will convey 450^men belonging to the wrecked American^war ships to San Francisco, was re^d v to^leave and was expected to sail May 1 from^Apia Eighty men will remain with Ad^miral Kimberly at Apia. The Nipsic has^been fitted with a new rudder and was^about to start for Auckland. HerrStaefel,^the newly appointed German consul, has^arrived at Apia. The s*M munder of the^British cruiser Rapid has hoisted the Brit^^ish flag over the Suwarrow Islands in the^southern Pacific o^ean, northwest of the^Bock Islands.
Louisville.May 9.^Tbe spring meet^^ing of tbe Louisville Jockey club opened^to-day. The weather was very fine and^the largest crowd ever known was present,^being variously estimated at from 15,000 to^25,000. The track was in good condition,^well sprinkled, hard and safe, though with^two inches ot dust and a little fast Mon^^tana answered to California in the results^of the day. All else is eclipsed in the Ken^^tucky Derby. It had been in sight and^hearing for weeks. As three years ago^Haggin brought Ben Ali out of the west to^lower the Kentucky Derby record to^^^ ,. so Armstrong came to-day with^Spokane and two seconds more disap^^peared. A little crowd of far-west turf^^men were present, and with little ado they^went about backing their favorites. Arm^^strong a year ago said he was going to take^this, the highest honor of the west. There^were not enough coast people to overcome^the immense enthusiasm and backing of^tbe home horse. Proctor Knott so the^money was nearly all laid one way. The^first pool this morning was $150 for Knott^and Sill for the field, and while much bet^^ter than this was done for both later, especial^ly in private bets, this shows the strength of^the sentiment All bets against Knott were^considered a snap, and the only reason^Kentucky is not broke to-night is lack of^men from tbe west to take their offers.
Asthe horses filed up the track for tbe^great event all appeared in perfect condi^^tion. Tbe game chicken on the great^Futurity winner was cheered t^ the echo^as he came out sixth, and the youngest^entries who followed were received with^applause. Spokane was hardly noticed,^though a quiet tip was out among tbe^knowing ones that he had been saved for^the occasion.
Atthe facing post the starters and^riders were: Sportsman, lis. Isaac Lewis:^Spokane, lis, Kileti; Proctor Knott, lis.^Barnes; Once-Again, lis, Murpby: Book^^maker, IttS Warwick; Cassius, 118. Faral:^Outbound. 117, Uallis; Hindoo Craft 118,^A rmstrong.
Therace was run out of the chute. Fer^^guson had little difficulty in getting them^off together, and the start was very even.^Hindoo Craft was in front Bookmaker^second, Spokane third. At the head of tbe^stretch tbe positions were little changed,^though the crowd was closing up on^Knott, who was evidently waiting for the^finish. As they turned the stretch tbe race^commenced and seldom was such a run^witnessed In America. Knott was let out^but Spokane came up with a tremendous^rush. Half way down the stretch^Knott swerved and Spokane forged^to the front by two lengths. Barnes^wheeled the favorite into line just as they^reached the distance stand, and be came up^like a bolt It was too late, however, and^Spokane passed under the wire winner by^a nose, Once-Again third, three lengths off.^The rest were strung out The race was^worth S4,H50 to the winner.

LitTleRock, Ark., May 9 ^The federal^authorities think now t iat tbe theft of the^Plummerville ballot box last November,^which led up to the assassination of Hon.^John M. Clayton, is cleared up. It appears^that several days ago a young man named^Warren Taylor was taken before the grand^jury and tettifie i that li ^ was in a crowd of^young men who went to Morrilltown, the^county seat, on election night as they un^derstood it to preserve the peace, as trouble^was expected. When the crowd arrived at^Plummerville they were baited on the out^^skirts and five men rode .^ :^ town. Pres^^ently they returned and reported, ^Every^^thing quiet,^ and the crowd returned. On^tbe way to Morrilltown the five men^gave it out that tbe Piummerville^ballot b^ x was in the crowd. The box^was taken into Wells' store at Morrilltun^and burned. This confession of Taylors^was the means of having a large number^of witnesses from Conway county sum^^moned before the grand jury. Just before^the grand jury adjourned indictments were^returned and to day it proved that these^were the indictmeuis. The men indicted^are O T. Bentley, P. Wells and Charles^Ware, charged with unlawfully seizing and^carrying away tbe ballot boxes and poll^books. The following are charged with^conspiracy in tbe stealing of tbe box: Chas.^C. Reid, Ben Wb.te. Tboa. C. Harvey. Wm.^Palmer. Warren Taylor, Ferd Lee^Gunter, Wm. S. Wonda, John C.^Heard and Tbad R. Wells. Reid is a^young lawyer of Morrillton who bad just^oeen released after conviction In the led^eral court of Interfering with election^judges.

HowKverybody Felt When the New* Wu^Kecel Ted--Spokane'* Record.
Itdoesn't surprise me in the least^ said^Green Preuitt yesterday, when the news^that Spokane had won the great Kentucky^Derby was received. ^That horse was put^in tbe held a year ago to win that race,^ he^continued, ^and will win ^100,000 before^tbe season is over.^ Spokane is owned^by Noah Armstrong, who manages the^Montana Stable, wblch includes several^horses owned by Hundley ^ Preuitt Mr.^Preuitt was about the most elated man in^town yesterday afternoon, and many times^was the health and prosperity of tbe Mon^tana stable drank to, at Mr. Preuitt's ex^^pense. But he was not alone in feeling^good. Tbe whole town was delighted, and^as men passed each other they were greet^^ed with ^What's the matter with Spokane^or ^Hurrah fer Spokane^'
Itwas a great race and no mistake, and^is tbe biggest feather that has ever been^placed in Montana's cap. The entire ter^^ritory^)! Montana rejoices at the news and^congratulates tbe owner of the now^famous son of the Montana turf, who was^foaled in the territory three years ago.^It was only in Feoruary. while Mr. Arm^^strong was here, he remarked: ^1 may^not win it boys, but I'll get a place.^^These words were recalled to many yester^^day.
Spokaneis a chestnut colt and was foaled^at Mr. Armstrong's ranch at Twin Bridges,^Madison county, in 1886 He was sired by^J. B. Haggin's Hyder Ali. hi* dam being^Interpose, a noble mare which is at pres^^ent on the Twin Bridges farm. As a two-^year-old Spokane was taken to si Louis^where i.e was exerc^sed a little and was^sent to Memphis to winter. He showed^bis mettle at Nashvi'le a couple of weeks^apo when be easily took second place in a^mile dash. He was not entered to win,^however. When he was considered a win^^ner in the Kentucky Derby, leaving Proc^^tor Knott out, it was not supposed he stood^a ghost of a show alongside the famous^winner of last year's Futurity. But Spok^^ane has proved b'lnseif the greatest three-^year-old on the American turf. His race^was remarkable in many particulars. In^tbe first place, it beats all previous records^made in tbe Derby. It was also remarka^^ble from the fact that at no previous time^were the weights so large a- on this occa^^sion. Spokane's time of 2M\ is only half^a second slower than the best record for a^mile and a half. Those horses which have^done better are here given, but notice the^contrast In the weights

Spokanecarried 1 18 pounds as a three^year-old, which snakes his performance of^yesterday the greatest on record for the^same distance^mile and a half. Last^year's Kentucky Derby was worth ^4.740^to tte winner. This year its value Is placed^at ^4.890 but this Is insig^mficant compared with the glory. Col. W.^B.

John O'Connor^was also interested in a few books and is^consequently happy.
Itis the general belief that Spokane's^success yesterday has lost bim to Montana.^It is thought he will be purchased at a good^figure by sosae eastern horsemen. He is^entered for the Helena Derby, to come off^here at tbe fall meeting of the racing
nation.He is also entered for the Ameri^^can Derby at Chicago, and at St Paul.

H.B. Child Declines the Republican Dele^^gate Nomination in ^ Mscarie.
GreatFalls, May 9^|Special to tbe^Independent j^Considerable dismay and^dissatisfaction was caused in the republi^^can ranks here this afternoon by tbe re^^ceipt of a letter from H. W. Child, declin^^ing the nomination for delegate, which he^received last week. Tbe decision causes^dissppoin tment among the republicans, for^Mr. Child was expected to provide funds^liberally for tbe campaign and to secure^for the party the votes of the workingmen^at the smelter. Mr. Child, it Is understood,^declines for business reasons. Tbe ac^^counts of tbe popular uprising for Gibson^and Collins, the democratic n^mice^s,^must also have impelled him to withdraw^and not waste time and money on a hope^^less fight Tbe withdrawal of Mr. Child^Is deemed fatal to the republican^prospects. ^We must now find some^one who Is willing to be slaugh^^tered,^ said a leading republican this^afternoon. It will be difficult to induce any-^prominent republican to run at this late^hour. Tbe strong republicans who were^so reluctant to run against tbe popular can^^didates will be still more disinclined to do^so now. Tbe democrats will not, however,^relax their vigilance. Tbe committee de^^sires the democrats throughout Cascade^county to work hard, so as to roll up a big^vote for th e party nominees, who are well^qualified to represent tbe county in the^convention. The Domination of Maginnia,^Toole, Clark, R. B, Smith and other veter^^ans has had an inspiring effect on tbe dem^^ocracy here and they will rally round the^flag in thousands on Tuesday.
