Millard May Hold Key to Kate
Reform Situation in the
By W. W. Jermane.
Washington, Nov. 11.Where does
Senator Millard of Nebraska stand re
garding the railroad rate policy of
President Roosevelt? Upon the answer
to this .auestion probably depends
whether the report of the senate com
mittee on interstate commerce, to be
made to congress in December, will show
& majority for or against the president's
plan.' Millard is a capitalist in sympathy
with railroad interests, and himself
prominently identified with railroad
ownership. It has been assumed all
Elkins chairman the committee in
opposing the president and in fact he
threaten to desert him. There is par- or
liamentary advantage attaching to a
majority report on any measure pending
before congress, and naturally Mr.
Elkins wants that advantage for his
opposition bill. It really, however,
makes little difference which side gets
a majority, as the proposition will be
fought out on the floor of the senate
without reference to how the committee
stands. Mr. Elkins' chief interest in
this Millard case grows out of the fear
that if an old veteran like Millard is
threatening to weaken, other senators
may do the same thing and thus show
that the senate is unable to stand up
against the wave of reform which is
now sweeping over the country.
The senate committee on interstate
commerce is made up of thirteen mem
bers, five of whom are democrats. Seven
are a majority.

Senator Cullom was supposedly with
the Elkins people until a few weeks
ago, when he announced that he had
seen a great light, and must hence
stand with the president. Sena
tor Cullom is a candidate for re-elec
tion, and his fate will be determined
by the legislature Illinois will elect
next fall. His campaign for re-elec
tion has been under way for several
Similarly, Senator Millard has a cam
paign coming on next year for return
to the senate
so he may be lost to the railroad side
of the senate argument.
The committee will meet in Wash
ington Nov. 21, to hear a little addi
tional testimony and prepare its report.
The friends of the president's policy!
on the committee will report substan
tially in favor of his plan. The Elkins
crowd will report in favor of some
measure which they will call a compro
mise, and which will probably, to be
gin with, concede everything the presi
dent asks, excepting that the interstate
.commerce commission shall have power
to name a new rate and put it imme
diately into effect. As to this particu
lar feature, which is the crux of the
entire controversy, t$te Elkins people
are expected to recommend some plan
providing for passing the matter up
to the courts, in accordance with the
position outlined by Senator Foraker
in an address made by him in Ohio dur
ing the late campaign.
Senator Gamble of South Dakota
Lad a long conference with President
Eoosevelt today. At its close he de
clined to discuss
Gamble with the what had been
talked about, but
Presidetn from other
sources it is
for Rate Reform learned that
much of the time
was pent in a careful review of the
railroad rate question as it will pre
sent itself in congress this winter.
Senator Gamble gave the president to
understand that ne was with him to
the full 'limit, and that the people of
South Dakota were with him, also.
Asked -tonight regarding the senatorial
struggle now under way in South Da
kota/Mr. Gamble declined to be in
terviewed, but his friends in Washing
ton are responsible for the statement
that he feels certain of success. It
may be said independently of Senator
Gamble's visit to the White House
that the president is taking a lively in
terest in all states where there is
promise of an issue next year, which
will test the sentiment of the people on
the rate question. It is the belief of
administration leaders that this ques
tion will soon be uppermost in several
senatorial campaigns, no matter what
congress may do this session. Senators
Cullom and Millard, in Illinois and
Nebraska, respectively, both originally
pro-railroad in sympathies, are already
feeling the force of public opinion,
and' the former has been compelled to
take a pronounced stand with tne pres
ident, while Millard is thinking of dolT-DI'AI
ing the same thing..- It is easily pos
sible that the same issue may be made
in South Dakota, especially with .Sen
ator Gamble takin the pronounced stand
tjiat be does in favor of the president's
pjolicy. So far as the president is con
cerned, these issjjes are welcomed for
he wants the popple to have an oppor-
tunity to go on record. It is his opin
i ion that wherever the issue is raised,
he will be indorsed, whether in the
election of senators or representatives.

an extensive experience, not* only in building cars, hut engines of all classes,

most complete line of Automobile Engines amd Transmissions of any manu-

A good car cannot be built by any concern purchasing parts from dif-
ferent factories throughout the country, and assembling them. Neither can
it be built by a concern that has not had years of experience in Gas Engine
