RATE ISSUE IN SENATE.
VILLMAN STARTS DEBATE.
Position of Opponents of President's
Plan Outlined by Mr. Foraker.
(From Th« Trlbuna Bureau. ]
Washington. Dec. 11.— Discussion of the rail
road rate problem In the Senate was precipitated
to-day in an unexpected manner, and consider
ably to the regTet of the leaders, who had hoped
to postpone discussion of the question on the
floor of the Senate until the Committee on Inter
state Commerce had had time to devise and re
port a measure in accordance with the Presl
. dent's recommendation. The debate started as
the result of some remarks made by Senator
TJllman in explanation of the rate bill he intro
duced. This measure, which is extremely sim
ple, provides that Congress shall delegate to the
Interstate Commerce Commission power, on
complaint and after due Investigation, to de
clar° a reasonable maximum rate between given
points, such rate to go into effect within thirty
days after the decision of the commission.
Mr. Tillman's remarks Immediately brought
Senator Foraker to his feet, and led to the tet
ter's outlining the position of the opposition.
He made it clear that those opposed to giving
such authority to the commission will maintain
that Congress has no power to delegate such
authority to any administrative commission, and
that they will insist that the popular complaint
is not that rates are unreasonably* high, 'but
against rebates and other forms of discrimina
While It is appreciated that railroad rate dis
oussion on the floor of the Senate will be lonr
amd tedious, it was hoped that It could be de
ferred fcr a while, at least, and regret is ex
jpressed, even by those who hope for and are
confident that satisfactory legislation will be the
outcome, that the ltoe should have been sharply
drawn no early In the session. The decided
stand taken by Senator Foraker on the one
>>«.r"S and by Senators Knox and Baiiey on the
Other will, it is feared, make It more than ever
difficult to reconcile the contending forces,
whereas the devising of a compromise measure
'which would at least contain all the essential
principles of the President's policy and the pav
tna- of the way for Its passage through the Sen
at» could have been accomplished behind the
«losed doors of committee rooms, and in those
.private conferences In which Senators may yield
to the views of their opponents -with less re
straint than Is possible on the floor of the Sen
ate. The Democrats were delighted that they
tfcad succeeded In pitting Republican Senators
against each other, and It is obvious that they
will lose no opportunity to promote the differ
ences of opinion on the Republican side of the
Mr. Tlllraan's bill was referred to the CommiU
:€©a on Interstate Commerce.
MR. PORAKER STATES HIS ATTITUDE.
Mr. Fbraker said he believed the bill the best
offered if the government is to go into the
rate making business at all. as it would do the
least possible harm. "In saying that, however,"
ke added. "I minimize the necessity of any legis
lation of that character, because the bill is di
rected solely at excessive rates." Mr. Foraker
took the position that Mr. Tiilman's bill recog
nizes the fact that the present laws are suffi
cient to reach rebates and everything but dis
"I had supposed that the law was sufficient to
reach rebates and similar alleged evils/ said
Mr. Tillman, "but since the investigation of re
i.ates begun by Mr. Judson and Mr. Harmon at
• the instigation of the Executive came to such
s miserable and pitiable fiasco I am getting
rather shalcy as to the sufficiency of that law.
It certainly will prove a failure until the Presi
dent stops protecting Cabinet officers and white
washing them, and until he does that there
never will be anything accomplished under the
"I will not be diverted by reference to a sin
pie transaction in which the Senator from South
Carolina thinks the President fell short of his
duty. If any one fell short there, the law cer
tainly -cannot be blamed," answered Mr. For
aker. "I am not going to vote for Mr. Till
j^^ man's bill. I have only been throwing him a
Rjj few bouquets."
Ws He said he bat! a bill of his own which he
,would explain within a few days, and could
convince any unbiased mind of the wisdom of
his measure. He declared that the Tillman
bill and many others offered were unconstitu
tional because Congress had no right to dele
gaits to a commission the right to regulate rail
"Than the Supreme Court is wrong on that
asked Mr. Tillman.
Mr. Foraker declared that the Supreme Court
Jmd never expressed Itself on this point. He
assarted that authorization of the Interstate
Commerce Commission to fix rates amounts to
driving it legislative functions.
Replying to questiorjo from Mr. Bailey and
Mr. Clay, Mr. Foraker repeated his statement
■■mm nls unqualified conviction, and said many
prominent lawyers were of the same opinion.
Mr. Culberson referred to certain grants to
CObaidlzed roads In which Congress declared
that only reasonable rates should be charged,
And said that if Congress could delegate to
railroads the power to fix rates it should have
power to delegate the same power to the com-
Mr. Foraker declared the roads, though pub-

would have had the right to fix rates whether
it were given to them by Congress or not.
Mr. Knox. the former Attorney General, asked
Mr. Foraker if the Supreme Court, in the «i*«
of Field aealnitt Clark, had not decided that
Congress can lay down a certain rule and then
authorize a commission to apply this rule to
specific cases, and whether this would not apply.
Mr Forakcr said that in that case the President
was directed to act by proclamation in an ad
ministrative way whenever he ucerta.f a cer
tain state of facts to exist, and that it uid not
amount to a delegation of legislative powers.
Taking the floor again, Mr. Tillman referred
to the discussion he had provoked.
"With malice aforethought." paid Mr. Spooner.
"Well" answered Mr. Tillman, "I like to set
you lawyers by the ears and then watch you
pull each other's wool."
The Vice-President then laid before the Sen
ate the Panama Canal appropriation bill. Mr.
Allison asked that it be referred to the Commit
tee on Appropriations as a deficiency bill, but.
on request of Mr. Kittredge, the bill wan read.
Mr Hopkins urged that tho bill be referred to
the Committee on lnteroceanie Canals, as it was
an emergency bill— deficiency. Mr. Spooner
said it was an emergency bill because it was a
Mr Allison said he would frankly state that
the Sundry Civil Appropriation bill should in
the future carry the regular canal appropria
tions, unless the rules should be amended.
CANAL SALARIES CRITICISED.
"It is good old Anglo-Saxon stealing and not
'graft.'" asserted Mr. Tillman. "to pay such high
salaries as are paid to canal officials." He men
tioned particularly the salary of $10,000 to the
declared that all these salaries
should be fixed by etatutr This was not the
function of the Appropriations Committee .he
added, hut it was "over such legislation as thli,

Ur Hemenway asserted thai the Committee
on Interoceank: Canals could meet to-morrow
if it so desired, and legislate Just what salar.es
should be paid to canal officials. cfo , l .
"There should be legislation and the steals
stopped." said Mr. Tillman. "even if the Presi
dent has loaned the prestige of his great name
to the existing 001 Mtions of affairs.
Mr Teller took the position that the President
•had been authorized to create the offices and
fix the salaries, and Congress **houid pay them.
There should be a law fixing the salaries.
Mr Bacon declared he did not see how Con
gress can nx the salaries unless it undertakes
'the herculean and impossible task of fixing
the salaries of each one composing the vast
army of employes on the canal."
Mr Daniel favored the bill going to the Ap
propriations Committee, and Mr. Morgan to
the Canal Committee. Mr. Morgan read the
first section of the bill relating to the issuance
at bonds for *13O,()00,<>OO, and declared that the
whole issue is the intention of this section to
make these bond*, bankable. "When this has
been done there is nothing to prevent the Presi
dent from turning his back upon Congress,
said Mr. Morgan. "He could say to Congress.
'I don't need any more appropriations from you.
I have $130,000,000. and that is all I need.
He protested against referring the bill to an
overwhelming Republican committee, a! he
termed the Appropriations Committee. After
saying he had no cause to fear the present
Appropriations Committee, Mr. Morgan con
tinued- "But there is a now generation coming
up which will serve on this committee, and if
this precedent were established it might take
the «me liberties with the Treasury of the

bill was then referred to the Committee on Ap
RAILROAD RATES AGAIN.
Mr. Bailey and Mr. Foraker resumed the rail
road rate debate. Mr. Foraker. referring to his
contention as to the absence of decisions sus
taining the authority of Congress to delegate
the rate fixing power to a commission said, the
President recognized this in saying in his mes
sage that the power should be conferred on a
"purely administrative body." The Senator said
thatto call a commission -purely iidminis

NEGRO RIGHTS INVOLVED.
Case of Alleged Lyncher Dismissed
by Supreme Court.
Washington, Dec. 11.-The Supreme Court of th»
United Btatea to-day reversed the ruling of the
Circuit Court of the United States for the Northern
District of Alabama in the case of Thomas M. Rig
.rins and remanded the cabe to the Alabama court.
Jrith directions to quash the writ of habea. corpus
B ued out by Riggins and to dismiss the petition for
such a writ. This case presented the broad ques
tion of the right of the negro to protection against
lynching under the federal Constitution and laws
and thua involved the jurisdiction of the federal
courts in such cases. The court did not. however,
enter into these questions, but based its decision
upon the technical ground that the proceeding by
means of a writ of habeas corpus was irregular.
Rig-ins is a white man and was indicted by the
grand Jury in the Circuit Court for the Northern
district of Alabama on the charge of conspiring
with others to lynch a negro named Maples at
Huntsville, Ala., in September, 1904. After being
taken into custody he presented :i petition to the
< ircuit Court uraying to be released on a writ of
habeas corpus, contending that even if true tne
offence charged was "no denial to Maple*, a person
of African descent, by reason of his race, Oi the
right, privilege and immunity of a trial by jury
to determine- his guilt or innocence of the charge
of muru< -r " 11" broadly challenged the jurisdic
tion of the court, and when tlif writ was refused
appealed to the Fuureme Court. The prosecution

of Sections 5.508 and 5.509 -of the Revised Statutes,
and Involved the construction of the Thirteenth
ani Fourteenth amendments to the Constitution.
SEEKS TO EVADE PRISON.
Counsel for Perjurer Will Attack
Validity of Election Laic.
Borough President Littleton, as counsel for ex-
Awsemblyman Joseph J. Cahill, who was sentenced
yesterday to two years in Sins Sing for perjury in
connection with two cases of false retristratlon
from his saloon, in Henry-st., Brooklyn, will apply
to-day to Justice Wilnjot M. Smith in the Supreme
Court, Brooklyn, for an order to show cause why a
certificate of reasonable doubt should not issue in
the conviction of his client. Judge Crane, of the
Kinps County Court, in sentencing Cahill. granted
a request for a stay of execution until Mr. Little
ton could make hie application for a certificate of
reasonable doubt. If this be granted, it will carry
with it a stay of execution until such time as the
case it settled.
Mr. Littleton expects to attack the constitution
ality of the election law on the ground that It re
quire* that a man testify against himself. He also
t<xpet te to attack the constitutionality of the ap
pointment of the Superintendent of Elections by
the Governor. Such appointments should be made
by the Mayor, he holds.
Prior to th« sentence of Cahill Francesco de
Palma. convicted of illegal registration, received •
sentence of from one to one and a half years in

to an attempt to vote illegally, was sentenced to

bribery in conection with the election.

"LITTLE TIM'S" SUBWAY.
f - ■
MAYOR'S CHAIR LINE.
Aldermen's Vice-Chairmanship First
Stop— Ballot Fight Ballast.
"Little Tim" Sullivan is credited at the City
Hall with being the brains of a scheme to bave
himself elected vice-chairman of the new Board
of Aldermen, so that if the Henrsi men enjoin
JtfcCJeUan and hia colleagues on the city ticket
from taking the oath of office thrre is a possi
bility that Mr. Sullivan will become Acting
Mayor for several months after January 1.
Alderman Sullivan is not particular about
polities in the board. A Republican is just as
good to him as a Democrat, so long as the Re
publican votes "right'— and voting ■right" is
voting Sullivan's way.
Elias Goodman, the Republican leader of the
hoard, sent out invitations last week for a meet
ing of all the anti -Tammany members of the
board at the Republican Club on Sunday night
All fourteen members from Brooklyn stayed
aivay. It may have been from strictly religious
scruples, but at the City Hall there is some
thing stronger than a surmise that Johnnie Die
mer. the man who "held up" the Port Chester
franchise in the board two years ago, and Billy
Wentz, who represents Naval Officer Sharkey's
district in the board, passed the word around
that the time was not right for Brooklyn men
to meet at the Republican Club In a conclave
that might be turned into a caucus. Mr. Diemer
and Mr. Wentz are on very good terms with
"Little Tim" Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan invariably
furnishes Tammany votes when either Diemer
or "Wentz wants anything jammed through the
AJderman Goodman is a candidate for vice
president of the board, and it is conceded that
the choice for the vice-presidency lies between
him and James Cow«Iln Meyers, who comes from
the Faroe Assembly District, the 21st. Mr.
Goodman took pains to say, in his note to the
Aldermen-elect, that the meeting was not to be
a caucus, but no Brooklyn member showed his
face at the meeting on Sunday night.
There are seventy-three Aldermen In the
board, besides five borough presidents and the
president of the board, making seventy-nine in
all. Borough President Cromwell is the only
one of the five who is a straight Republican.
The Republicans, therefore, need about forty
votes to organize the board. The chances are
that they will have more than that when the
roll is called, bat the absence of the Brooklyn
men is regarded as proof that Mr. Sullivan has
started a green goods and gold brick factory,
and that the product is being peddled in Brook
AVith a prospect of a long drawn out fight in
the courts, with injunctions, etc.. it is regarded
as entirely probable that there may be no Mayor
at all on New Year"s Day. That is just the sort
of a predicament for which "Little Tim" is
"hankering." If there is no president of the
Board of Aldermen to act as Mayor, then the
vice-president of the board is next in succes
sion, and this time the vice-chairman of the
boaxd will be a Republican if the men elected
by Republican votes stand by each other.
"Little Tim" turned the Republican majority
into a minority In the first year of the Low ad
ministration, and he has an idea that he can
do it again.

Judge Holland Allows Charges to
Go to Grand Jury.
Philadelphia. Dec. 11— Judge Holland, in the
United States District Court to-day, gave United
States District Attorney Thompson permi«wion
to take before the grand jury rebating charges
against various railroads.
The taking of testimony will begin Wednes
day at the secret session of the grand jury. The
District Attorney refuses to give out the names
of witnesses and defendants until the matter has
oeen placed before the jury, but it in said the
bills include the names of agents of certain rail
roads outside of Pennsylvania. Those who tes
tifiy before the grand jury will be immune from
The District Attorney said to-night that the
action was taken at the suggestion of the de
partment at Washington. "I hr-ve gathered till
the evidence against the common carriers of
this State," he said, "and have been aided by
the Interstate Commerce Commission, which
submitted to me all the information in its
hands. The investigation will be sweeping. If
while the testimony is being presented before
the grand jury it develops that conspiracy has
existed that charge will then be made, and im
prisonment may result in some cases."
