HIGHESI COURT !
UPHOLDS STATES i
IN FIXING RATES
Decision To-Day Says Laws in
Missouri, Oregon, West Vir
ginia and Arkansas Are Valid.
SOME RATES TOO LOW
Charges Fixed for Several Mis
souri Roads Overruled
(Special from a Stag
The BJweaUaf Weald.)
WASHINGTON, June 11-Strlklng
blow after blow to contentions of rail
way managers In their struagls against
Stats reg-utatron of rates, the United
Statea Supreme court thla afternoon
handed down decisions that aicnoat uni
formly sustained the power of the
States to fix In Iras tats passenger and
There were forty -erlne esses before
tha court coming from Missouri, Watt
Virginia, Arkansas and Oregon. Soma
of them related to rates for frslgtit
traffic and others ware on uniform two-
cents par mile passenger fares. Tha
court took aa the basis of ail Its de
cisions the principles laid down In Jus
tus Hughes's dsclalon of laat week In
the ddsnneeota rate That a State has
the right to fix rates within Its bonders
so long aa ths rata la not below cost or,
to use the legal phrase, so long aa it
doee not conAacata the company's prop
arty. In saeh ease It Is necessary for tha
Court to examine lust what the rail
road property Is worth and whether
the rates as fixed by tha States sllow
a fair margin of profit on actual val
uation. KNOCKS OUT THE BLANKET
Ons af ths notable outcomes af these
decisions Is to knock out biankst two
cent fare laws. Justice Hughss. when
Governor ot New Tork, vstosd a two
cant fare law because conditions are
not tha same for all railroads silks and
what might be reasonable and Just to
one would not be fair to another.
In the west Vlrg.ma caee a two
cent law waa In question. The Su
preme Court sustained It solsly becauss
as applied to tha Chssspsaks and Ohio
Railroad It Is not confiscatory. If an
othar railroad had been concerned bar
ing different conditions that would
make such a rate confiscatory the de
cision might be revsrssd.
Thla confiscation principle was enunci
ated In deciding the Missouri cases.
Elghtssn railroads running through that
State fought the enforcement of State
regulating commission rates for Intra
state traffic. Ths Sup.sms Court to-day
upheld ths Stats rales In thirteen casea,
but In Ave others declared that the
roads involved could not stand ths re
ductions Imposed without having their
property conn seated. Most of those 1st
ter Unas were small local roads, the
only one of prominence being the Uhl
oago Oreat Weetern.
Ths decision holding ths rates conns-
catory to ths Chicago Ursat Western
was made to apply, by virtue of stipule
tlon bstwssn ths Huts and ths rail
roads to ths Qulncy. Omaha and Kansas
City Railroad and ths St. Joseph and
Grand Islands Hallway.
Ths Court held the ratae valid as
to ths St. Uouls Southwestern, ths
Missouri Pacific, tha St. Loula, Iron
Mountain and Southern, the Wabash,
ths Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul
and the Chicago and Alton.
NEARLY EVERY ROAD AFFECT

Practically every trunk line or the
West and South was Involved directly,
and all rallroada ars concerned In

to a personal encounter between the tw.-
men there snd culminating In a audden

FEUD BEGAN OVER FARM WHERE
GANG SPENT WEEK-ENDS.
The full story of this blttsr hatred
between the two Informers, having, aa
It doss, a slenl0.car.t bearing upon tha
attempt on Webber'e life, runs this way:
A very handsome farm nsar Falls
burg, .Sullivan County, stands In the
name of Charlea Webber, a brother of
Brldgts. though Brldgle Webber U
known to be the real owner. Before
tha murder of Herman Roe n tha I thla
farm was the favorite week-end pil
grimage point for Webber, Sam Scheppa,
Big Jack Zellg, Roee and all who.e
namea ware linked subsequently with
the murder of the gambler.
Before the Rosenthal murder Charles
Webber borrowed 11,000 from Vallon
and gave him a mortgage on this farm
as security. At the time Big Jack Zsllg
was Jailed on ths charge of carrying
concealed weapons, his arrest arising out
of a shooting In Chinatown. Zsllg sent
word to Charles Becker, as ths test!
mony In ths trial of the latter brought
out, that he must be balled out Imme
diately. The National Surety Company
went on the ball bond of 110,000 and
was guarantaed by private donations of
soveral of ZelU's friends.
Hrldgls Webber put up $4,000 and
Harry Vallon' a name stood opposite a
S2.U0Q guaranlse. It was generally
known among the eelect circle. In
which Vallon moved that he didn't
have a penny to bless hlmsslf with.
and that Wsbbar had loaned him the
11.000. lu.t so that he could "make a
showing" bsfors his frtsnd Big Jack.
VALLON HELD 92,000 AND
LAUGHED AT WEBBER.
When Zellg was shot dead by "Red
Phil" Davidson last summer, Webber
and Vallon were then being held aa
wltneeees in ths eBcker trlsl. Vallon
than lnstructsd Bsrnard Sandler, bis
counsel, to recover the U.000 be bad

and after the bond was vacated by an
order of ths court, Ssndlsr turned over
the money to Vallon.
Then came the break between Web-

claimed the IJ.000 that Sandler (had re
