t;ik COAL ROADS SUED.
jS ISJCSCTIOX SOUGHT.
Independents Charge Breach of
Contract and Discrimination.
Fuprem* Court Justice L«eventrltt has reserved
ascawssi •• tlie application of John A. Carver.
counsel for Henry E. Meeker and another, to en
min th* Erie Railroad Company, the New York.
<s gueh*nna «c Western Railroad Company and
tr .# WlHces-Barre St Eastern Railroad Company
aj«sa re#awlßsX to perform . a contract for the
transport* l ' oo of the plaintlfTe coal, and to en
join tbs Erie company from interfering with
Tie plaintiff* are dealers In anthracite coal In
♦his city, procuring supplies from collertes In
rvnnsylvar.ia, at or near Wllltes-Barre. The
W*Hl:e«-Fa»Ti» company owns a short ltne of road
trr^r-. eTMßßavflaWkw to Stroud^burg:. Perm.. where
ft fonnwii with the main lino of the Pu*qu*»
riarna company, runnlnp; from there to the Maw
Tork tidewater. The Susqu«ihant:a <*ompsr^.-. it
1* BSw«TedL owns all th* stack of the \TMV-i«
■Rarre compßny. and It is also alleged that about
$*7 per cent of tho Susipiehanna company Ik in
turn own-d by the Erie. The Susquelianna com-
P«r<y operates th* Wilk*s-Ba.rT« company, and
it Is stated that the officers of the Susquehanna
and the Erie companies are practically Identical.
According to the lawyer the plaintiffs ent«red
Into a contract with the Wilkes-Barre company
In l«m by wh'.ch the company agreed to ship
a.l! of Hattr coal from certain collieries over th«
Wpesr-Banw Hailmad to tidewater, and to pay
fnr the sen-Ires a certain percentage of the tfde
*3ter prices of the coaL That was to continue
•wtJI May. 1(^»9. and thereafter, unless termi
'.m'.rA on *\x mom ha' notice.
Helylns on this contract, the plaintiffs con
tracted with the owners of various collieries to
T Mir, -h.-.*«? their coal st a price which enabled
ih<>ni to make a reasonable profit on the trans
action, no lonr a* thHr contract with the WiJkes-
Bsrre company continue*!.
At the time the contract with tli« Wllkps-
Barre company wai made no general tariff rates
exists, although the Interstate Commerce act,
requiring rates to be made, had son- into effect
Tjittt". according to counsel, tariff rates were
published, but th* defendant* never pretended
that the published rates interfered with the per
formance oi' this contract. The performance
was awumej by the Susquehanr.R company.
«nd was duJy made until August. ISMj, when
the Su^jaehanna der.j) re d any longer to exe
cute It, basing its refural on the fact that it had
ruhlishei Its rates, which differed from those
specified la the contract.
It has Flnce then refused to deliver any coal
shipped by the plaintiffs over its road, except on
the payment of the published rates. The moving
papers shew that the rates thus published aro
sails and higher than rates charged by the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company for similar ser
vice, and that there are no Independent shippers
except the plaintiffs.
The papers also state that two other coal
companies, the New Tork. Susqueha«n«i & West
ern Coal Company and the Hllldalo Coal and
Iron Company, rhlp coal over these roads, but
the papers declare that they are both owned or
controlled by th* defendants.
In showing the alleged interference of the Erie
company with the contract and also the alleged
nad faith Involved In the broach of the contract,
It is alleged in the moving papers that in 1001
the Erie and Eosquehanna companies, with five
other anthracite railroad companies, the Dela
ware & Hudson, the Lackawanna, the Jersey
Central, the Reading and the Ontario & West
ern, which at the time owned or controlled a
large portion of the coal In the anthracite region,
entered Into a scheme to gain further control of
tho coal and to bring about a monopoly in it,
so as to Increase the price of coal and at the
same time increase the rate of transportation
to such an extent as to bar out the Independent
The lawyers say that as a pretext to enable
them to carry through tha scheme, these rail
road companies bought out the Temple Iron
Company and elected their Grocers as officers
T?™ £!£r tOrB ° f t com P"y- The Temple
l ron Company was a mining company which

cers of the railroad companies to get together
*nd agree^ on rates to outside shippers. Dp to
that time the rates of the different railroad com
panies had not been uniform, but they were
msde uniform. " m^ tJ>
tlinw the rate charged for the transportation of
foal had never exceeded the difference between
ihe tidewater price and the price at the breaker
Put at that time a rate was made to independent
Rippers which did exceed that rate, so that
after paying the percentage of the tidewater
price for the coal at the breaker*, business could
not be conducted by tho independent dealers

WOULD r.riMFtrnsr; CAMERON.— Tho War
Department In anxious to see that belated fuetlce
may be done Captain G<oig»> R. Cameron. 4th cav
alry, now on duty In the Philippines. That officer
was at one time the disbursing officer of the service
school at FVrt Rlley, Kan., and had th« responsi
bility of paying enlisted men for extra duty.
Among other* so employed was a soldier who did
valuable work in the capacity of foreman at the
School printing stop. The amount involved was
about $r.5. and Captain Cameron, appreciating the
uncertainties of official decision In matters of dis
bursements, inquired through the regular military
channels as to whether lie would he Justified In
making this particular payment. Everybody along:
the line approved the proposition, including the
judg? advocate genera! of the i riny and the Acting
Secretary of War. This might be taken as suffi
cient authority to proceed. an-1 Captain Cameron,
In good faith and with a proper respect for what
he regarded as a War Department decision, handed
out the money 1o toe j>oidier. only to find later that
the. auditor for the War Department rejected the
Item and held Captain Cameron responsible. The
case has dragged along without relief for Captain
• 'ameron. whose pay has been "docked" the amount
Involved. It will take a special act of Congress
to relieve the officer from his obligation.
TROUBLE WITH OlL.— The Navy Department
!s again engaged in the problem of purchasing oil
for tfce Fervlce. Constant complaint has come to
the department from officers In ct^arge of the ma
chinery of ships of war that the oil furnished
Jately has been of an Inferior quality and baa In
terfered with the operation of tho engines— ln fact.
in on* case the progress of the vessel was seriously
hampered by the kind of oil Issued. It Is believed
this conies about because of the previous protest
made by manufacturers of oil that they wore not
allowed an opportur.ltv to bid for contracts. This
led to an order that the specifications for oil should
be general in terms, with »he result that some In
ferior oils were presented as samples accompanied
by lowest bids. There was no way to avoid the
acceptance of such proDosala, although it was
realized that the oil would not answer the demands
of the service. The fault Is charged to Inability to
specify proprietary articles ami special brands of
oil. It Is probable that the general specifications
will be so modified as to allow the naval authorities
to purchase, in as many rases .is possible, th* oil
they find necessary for the greatest efficiency of
the service and protection of i's machinery.

The text of the night will be a single idea-Ameri
ca's heedless waste of workingtnen, the fa'-t that
mechanical triumphs are being overshadowed by
the danger to life in industrial advance. On Tues
day, through the Instrumentality of Morris K.

Museum of Natural History, with photographs and
models of devices for protecting the lives of

Tolmon. director of th* American Institute of So
cial Service, the originator of the movement
The idea of a museum of security, though new In
tills country, has bean a popular one for some time
In Europe, where many museums of security have
been established, and has recently been set forth
by Dr. Tolman as embodying "a permanent exposi
tion not only of devices for the prevention of acci
dents to laborers, but of the Jt>est suggestions orlgl
r>ated by any person or institution to help working
men In any way. It Is really divided into two
great sections, one comprising all that has to do
with, th* prevention of accidents In th* various
branches of Industry, and th<» other comprising
social and Industrial hygiene."
The exhibition In the Museum of Natural His
tory, which will last two weeks at least, will b»
free to every one and will be open Sundays and
evenings. It will consist largely of 'live exhibits"
of machines and their models. The section of In
dustrial hygiene will Include houses and devices for
first aid to the Injured, prevention of diseases and
ventilation. A medal will be given to each exhibi

AN' EXPLORER TALKS OF JAPAN
William Cook Daniels on the Future of the
Denver. Jan. M.— ln a signed article on "Japan."
published In "The- Denver Times" to-day. Major
William Cook Daniels, explorer, who recently re
turned from an expedition In Borneo, says: "A
Japanese-Russian entente Is by no means Impos
sible." Continuing, Major Daniels Bays:
Japan must colonize to fulfil her destiny as she
e»es it. Tho tropics do not attract Japan, even as
possessions. hi present. China, or at any rate a
large pirn of China.. comes first, an Infinitely richer
prise an all the land north of latitude 19 south
and west of longitude 10U east. In good time she
will turn her attention to those lands, excepting
the Philippine*, since the States cannot be bribed
with bits of China, nor blocked by a European
combination, and would not give them up without
Java and Sumatra would do instead, so would
Dutch Borneo, with Celebes and Undo for pend
ants, lying in the shadow of Dutch Guinea.
There are tropic possessions enough for Japan
without tampering with the States, or. if it should
seem wise, touching England. For such things
there Is no urgency, and In getting them there will
be no haste: but a colony eh© must have, ami have
sooner, perhaps, than any one outside her own
rulers creams. Where will she Keek one? Whither
in she looking even now? South, south, past the
tropics; south to Australia.
England may easily find that an unprofitable
Australia under tho British flag is unnecessary to
her existence; England may •<■•• that her safety
would !«• better served by a flourishing Australia
under the flag of th* Rising Bun. •
Unless conditions change In a manner and In a
degree, which It Is impossible to foresee. Japan has
every reason for leaving it:* Philippines as
We need not fear any direct and Immediate
Japanese aggression— we weed not fear Japan either
now or ever. But between fear, which we do not
feel, and blind neglect and ignorance of the change
and changing condition*) In the Far East there lies
a wide, field for wise, careful forethought, for such
diplomatic and even military and naval prepara
tions as may Insure our readiness when the time
comes. And that time will come. Sooner or later—
and sooner. I think, than the moat of us fancy—
we must com* face to face with Japun somewhere
In th* Pacific, Our diplomacy may postpone the
meeting for a time, but not forever; and only
Japan's understanding of our strength and of our
resolution to use fore* if necessary will make her
stop when and where we cry "Halt!"
