In view of tho general misunderstand
ing regarding this last point, the com
mittee, at the conclusion of Its meeting,
gave out tho following statoment:
"The general Impression which tho pub
lic labors under that tho Interstato Com
merce Commission directed tho railroads
to ralso the passenger rato fares Is an
erroneous one, when generally considered.
"Tho Interstato Commorco Commission
has officially declared that they havo no
authority over Intrastate rates. Long
hauls covering Interstate traffic has been
the servlco which the railroads claim Is
a losing venture. This Is tho passenger
service under tho Jurisdiction of tho In
terstate Commerce Commission.
"Therefore, when they Intimated to the
railroads that tho passenger rates be
raised they only could havo referred to
those long Interstato rates which como
under their supervision, and not local
commutation rates, with which they have
nothing to do."
Tho attorneys for tho committee will
meet AVednesday morning, the day before

testimony to be presented the commission.

SAUCE FOR THE KAISER; 'NOT
GUILTY,' SAYS 'HOGG COURT'
Young; Socialists Find Ho Hoally
Didn't Instigate Great War.
Kaiser Wllhelm was acquitted of con
spiracy to Instigate the great European
war before tho "Hogg Court," where ho
was tried, under auspices of tho Young
People's Socialist League, Apollo Hall,
1728 North Broad street, last night
Both the prosecution, ably represented
by Meyer Snyder, and tho defense, well
conducted by Isaao Paul, tried their best,
the first to hang tho Kaiser, and the
other to havo htm acquitted on Uie alibi
that ho was defending "culture and civili
zation." For n while It looked bad for the Kaiser,
as "Andrew Barnegle," tho Czar of Rus
sia, and a Red Cross nurso gave some
tcry damaging testimony against him.
Ills stock rose considerably, however,
when tho Sultan of Turkey and Mr. Wil
liam Jennings Orapojulce testified In his
behalf. But what seemed to Influence
tho "court" most In tho Kaiser's favor
was his own testimony.
So bitter and emotional did tho trial
appear at certain stages that at one point

Juncture, with tho appearance of tho
Sultan, the love scene enacted between
tho latter and tho Kaiser detained tho

claimed, "was dragged Into the war
against his will." He gave a detailed
account of RusBlan culture with the evi
dent Intention to prove that Slav culture
was superior to tho German kultur. "As
evidence, tho Czar pointed to what he has
dono for the Jews In tho past and what
ho has promised to do for thorn In the
future. Ho denied that ho ordered any
mobilization before the Kaiser declared
war, saying that he called his soldiers
for mere target practice. As another evi
dence of Russian culture, he gave the
fact that "there are no laws In Russia
which makes cleanliness compulsory."
