HEPBURN RATE BILL IN
House Committee's Statement Ex
plains Purpose of Measure.
Washington. Jan. 27. -Chairman Hepburn to-day
reported to the House his Railro^i Rate, bill with
the favorable "recommendation or the entire Repub
li.-an nnd Democratic naaaabarahip of the interstate
and Foreign Commerce Committee, The Mil will
come up in the House next week.
The report la .i comprehensive explanation of the
measure. Before giving details as to the intention
of each section, the Statement is mad* that the bill
In the product of several years' consideration by
the committee. It is made up from the nineteen
Mils which were before the committee, and the in
formation contained in five volumes of hearings
before th* Senate and the House committees.
The ne«>d for the proposed legislation is said to
be emphasised by the demand »ii shippers have
been making for years. The object of the bill is
Btsnpty to amend the present Interstate Commerce
law. which has been in force for twe: years, so
as to give the Interstate Commerce. Commission
more power an] make clearer some of the pro
visions of # the law.
No attempt is made to authorise the commission
to readjust freight classification. which Mr. Hep
burn gays hig committee considers a much greater
power over rales than that given In the bill. T'nder
the measure the Initiative In rate making Is not
given to the commission, but under a grant of
power to establish a system of freight classifies
tion it would have authority to take the Initiative,
little complaint, it if aald, has been heard against
In attempting to correct the shipping evils the bill
provides, first, a broader definition of the words
"railroads' and "transportation.' so as to include
within the Jurisdiction of the commission the reg
ulation of switches, private cars and terminal
charge*. Icing charts are required to be Included
In the published tariff schedules, and thirty days"
notice is required to be given before changes are
madt 1 in these schedules. This latter requirement is
to obviate what is known as 'midnight tariffs.' In
considering a complaint the Commission will have
authpri^y to find a "conclusion" Instead of as at
present finding "facts and conclusions."" Facts are
to be Included in the flndirg only when damages are
to be awarded.
It Is Section * of the bill which confers power
on the commission t" establish a tate or to de
clare what will be a proper charge in a certain
Instance. Th* report fays in this connection thai
it is just to the commission to etate that none of
Its members think it wise that authority to take
the Initiative in rate making should be conferred
upon it. Its Jurisdiction Is confined to cases where
complaint had been made, when It Is authorized to
declare what shall be a "jus' and reasonable and
fairly remunerative rate or rates, charge or
charge*, to be- thereafter observed in such csso
as the maximum to be charged; and what regula
tion <>r practice in respr-<( to such transportation
Is Just, fair and reasonable thereafter to be fol
lowed, and to make an order that the carrier shall
cease and desist from such violation to the extent
to which the commission find the same to exist, and
shall not thereafter publibl., demand or collect any
rat*- or charge for curb transportation In excess
of the maximum rate or charge so prescribe^ and
shall conform to the regnlatl or piactic%.<o pre,
This order is to go Into efTer* thirty days after
notice to the carrier, and to remain in force unless
suspended, modified or Ee t aside by the commission
or court of competent Jurisdiction. The existence of
the order is limited to a period of tin re years, it
ll explained that the word 'maximum" was u.^erj
In order that some flexibility might be given the
rate, and that the carrier ■ tight charge a. less sum
than that fixed by the. mmmiseion The commis
sion is empowered to fix the maximum allowance
to a shipper who furnisher his own cars or any in
strumentality of transportation.
Additional requirements and restrictions are pro
vided on th,- stfbjeet of awarding damage?, roeelr
ing complaint*, giving notice of hearings, etc. A
penalty of $5,00f» is provided for violation of an order
of the commission. Th« commission may employ
counsel with the consent of the Attorney General.
Authority is given to the shipper to apply to the
Circuit Court for the enforcement of the commis
sion's orders The court Is to enforce this order
by means of injunction Appeals may be taken to
the Supreme Court direct, and such cases are to
have priority over nil others, except criminal cases.
Authority is given the commission to prescribe the
exact manner in which reports shall h« made by
common earners, and the manner in which rall
rojtds are to ke*»p their accounts, with a penalty
provision against non-compliance
Access may be had all time to the books of the
carriers. ,v A fine of $5,000 or imprisonment for two
years is the penalty provide,! fn r refusal to nllow
of" P « ert h c the ww ' miTllssiDn to exam in th»- books

TAFT BEFORE SENATORS
Agreement Concerning Panama Cur
Washington, Jan. 17.— Secretary Taft was again
before the Finance Committee of the Senate to-day,
and it was saM by Senator Bailey, who introduced
the resolution regarding the monetary conditions In
Panama, that the Secretary left nothing to Investi
Mr. Ball»y said he would like to give the Secre
tary of War ths opportunity to deny that he had
attempted to make an agreement as Secretary of
War which. If made by the Secretary of State,
would have required the approval of the Senate.
The rial was mad* by the Secretary, who then

duty Is to do something in a foreign country which
reaulrea a temporary arrangement, that arrange
ment si mount* to a modus vivendi— which means a
method of living together which is a method or
getting over a temporary difficulty.
Ha added that this government was much Inter
(sted In having a stable currency established on the
Isthmus, and he thought the President had power
to authorize him to make this temporary arrange
"But 1 think when an officer commits hi* govern
ment to maintain the parity of the currency of a
foreign power he baa done something he had no
authority to do." said Senator Bailey. Secretary
Tafi. in reply, called attention to the agreement
itself, which was as follow?.
The Isthmian Car.al Commission shall 00-op«rat«
with the public of Panama to maintain the par
ity of tho fractional silver coinage of the ««pur>l|.
Of Panama with the gold standard hj ■ the b*l» of

At the forme:- hearing the Secretary ?aid that he
had thought the .-lau«e in the agreement by which
the Canal Commission undertook to make the Pan
ama currency l^gal tender and to maintain its
parity had been stricken out. Commenting upon
the statement, Senator Bailey aatd that had been
the only poiQt on utn. 1. he desired light. Ha said
that the- contract with the bankers by which the
Canal Commission agreed to use the Panaman cur
rency on the isthmus was a business arrange
ment the Secretary of War had the right to make,
and the Finance Committee would not be warranted
In Investtgsttnff whether the deal had be»n a profit
Senator Bailey thought the Secretary of Wai
should make himself understood, however, concern
ing language used In a conference with the xPan
aman fiscal commission for entering upon this
arrangement. The question had i>een raised wheth
er the proposed arrangement could be made with
out a treaty or whether the Secretary of War had
not the authority to proceed under the canal act
In the proceedings of that conference Secretary
Taft la quoted as saying:
The only authority I have, is to act for the com

When this question was raised to-day there fol
lowed a long technical discussion of the powers of
the Secretary of War under the Spooner act and the
powers of an executive department to proceed
under authority granted by a general law. senator
BalW fiiid h.- had serious doubt whether an execu

government, which involved the essence of a treaty.
Svnator Hpooner replied that unquestionably that

avowed any Intention of making such an agree

inu that he had tried to hay* th« e«nal transferred
to the Secretary of State, but that the Secretary of

that the language he had used In the. conference

I government was not entering into a treaty but
into a tentative agreement terminable at any time.

When it is realized that the Pianola will place at your hnger tips the entire art »f piano
vlasin* you are in position to appreciate the limitless possibilities for pleasure afforded
by this investment. Think of being able to sit down in your own home and play over
for your own enjoyment, or the entertainment of your friends, everything that a

DURING the eight years that the Pianola

has been made to secure the instrument
under price. Pianola pn'eex are rigidly
maintained in every part of the unrld. There has
been no way— and there is none to-day— by
which a new Pianola could be secured for a cent
At this season, however, we rind ourselves
with an unusually large stock of exchanged Piano
las on hand. This accumulation is the direct re

If this accumulation of used Pianolas could
be immediately placed in homes where they would
be seen and heard by new circles of music-lover?,
they would prove the most effective advertisement
that could possibly be put out. Therefore we
have decided to name lower prices on them than
ever before— whether at public or private sale.
