UN REBATE SUIT
Moody Starts a Private-Car Ac
tion Against Big Wisconsin
Vvurnal Special Service.
Washington, Nov. 13.Attorney Gen
eral Moody has begun action against
seven railroads, the Pabst Brewing com
pany and the Milwaukee Eefrigerator
Transit company, to break up a monop
oly in private cars controlled by the
Milwaukee Refrigerator Transit com
pany. The petition against the com
pames was filed in circuit court of the i 2
United States for the eastern district
of Wisconsin. The attorney general!
when seen in regard to the petition
"It appears that the Pabst Brewing
company is a large shipper of beer over
the various railroads running from Mil
waukee. Some of the principal stock-,
holders of that corporation own the
Milwaukee Rref rigerator Transit com-1
pany, a corporation operating private
cars*. To the latter corporation the: 6
control of the shipments of the Pabst
Brewing company was given a
agreement entered into between the two
corporations named. I
"The various railroads mentioned as! 5
defendants, while receiving as freight
money the open and published rates
for the transportation of commodities,
have paid to the Transit company, in
whose private cars the beer was trans
ported, a commission of about 12 per
cent, upon the amount of the freight i 2
money collected, with the effect of,
course, that the net amount received 2
for the transportation by the railroad
companies is so much less than the pub
lished and open rate.
Test the Legality.
This petition i designed test
the legality of such payments, and is.
brought under the provision of the
Elkins law, which provides that a fail- f|
ure strictly to observe the published ij
rates shall be a misdemeanor and fur
ther provides that it shall be unlawful
for any person, persons, or corporation i Jj|
to offer, grant, or give, or to solicit, a|
accept, or receive, any rebate, conces- Jj
sion or discrimination in respeet to the
transportation of any property of inter- 9\
state or foreign eommeree, whereby
any such party, shall be by any device
whatever be transported at any but the
rates published and filed by the car-
The case is regarded by the attor
ney general of the greatest importance
and will be pressed. It has been thoro
ly investigated, not only by the inter
state commerce commission, but by the
department of justice and by private
parties, the interests of whom are ad
versely affected by the discrimination
The petition is directed against the
Pere Marquette, the Missouri, Kansas
& Texas, the Erie, the Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific, the St. Louis & San
Francisco, the Wisconsin Central and
the Chicago & Alton, in addition to the
Pat3 Brewing company ancl the Mil
waukee Erefrigerator Transit company.
Known in Advance.
Milwaukee, Nov. 13.That the
Pabst Brewing company found in ad
vance that the government expected to
prosecute them for rebating thru pri
vate car line contracts, and that this
was the cause of the sudden change of
officers is stated Charles Quarles,
attorney, brother of Judge and ex-Sen
ator Quarles, who will assist the gov
ernment. He says:
"The preparation of this case has
been going on for many months, testi
mony has been carefully collected and
the interstate commerce commission has
assisted in the work. Last March the
commission summoned before i Traffic
and Frederick Pabst -withdrew a a
officer of the Pabst company soon after,'
"but we contend that the same interests
still control both companies.'
The Pabst Interests.
Gustar Pabst and his brother Fred.
Pabat, Jr., are president and vice pres
ident of the Milwaukee Eefrigerator
company, the majority of the stock
being held by them together with their
mother and their sisters. After the
passage of the Elkins law, rebates and
concessions could not be paid or made
directly, so in May, 1903, the Milwau
kee Refrigerator Transit company was
organized with a capital stock of $150,-
000 and a bonded debt of alike amount.
That company bought and leased 540
refrigerator cars, the entire stock, with
the exception of blocks of twenty-five
shares held by three or four different
parties, being owned by the parties

NE W DEMAND S O N
'Big Stick" Held Back Until
Powers Interested Can Be
London, Nov. 13.Final arrange
ments fox a combined naval demonstra
tion against Turkey have been delayed
pending the receipt of replies from the
powers to a suggestion from Lord Lans
clowne, th British foreign secretary,
that the demands be extended to
clude not only financial but judicial
control over Macedonia, by the Eu
ropean powers and the extension of re
forms to the vilavet of Adrianople,
which, tho disturbed like Macedonia,
was not included in the present Austro
Kussian reform scheme.
In making this proposition Lord
Lansdowne, who is convinced that finan
cial control alone of Macedonia -wrill be
inadequate to secure order there, hopes
to obviate the necessity of resorting
again to the delicate maneuver of a
joint naval demonstration, and by one
coup to secure concessions which will
enable the powers to settle permanently
the Balkan question...
Three Powers Hesitate.'7
Since Austria and Russia rejected
the original proposal for autonomy in
Macedonia Lord Lansdowne has been
endeavoring by degrees to secure per
manent, reforms. To his latest pro
posal, it is stated, Italy and France will
probably agree readily, but there is lit
tle hope or Austria, Russia and Ger
many concurring therein.
At the foreign office it was said that
the refusal oi any power to agree to
this new proposal will make no differ
ence in the attitude of Great Britain,
which country in any event will join
in the proposed demonstration against
The next step, iLwas said, will be an
ultimatum, in which it will be stated
that in the event of a refusal by fheSunshine
porte to accede to the demands of the
No. 879...$1.50 R.&G.
powers, a demonstration will immediate
ly be begun.

ships selected, but which have not yet

Germany, while not opposing the prin
ciple of the demonstration, says she has
no warships available in the Mediter
ranean. This is considered to be a
diplomatic move to retain German pres
tige in Turkey.
BROADWAY GAIETY GIRLS
One of the liveliest burlesque shows
of the season i -presented a the
Dewey theater this week by the Broad
'Gaiety Girls, headed by Mildred
Stdller, known as the "queen of bur
The show is nearly up to the light
opera class and many of they new feat
ures have never been seen in a bur
lesque production. "Glittering Syl-
via," is the title of the opening piece
and the author has broken outof bonds
and given i more than a semblance of
a plot. Thefirstscene shows the deck
of a steamship and the second, the bot
tom of the sea, affording some excel
lent opportunities for beautiful lighting
effects that have not been overlooked.
Altho there is no lack of good come
dians, Miss Stoller and John Webber
are exceptionally clever their rolls
and everything with which they are
connected goes with a dash. Aside
from thi&sMiss Stoller is a singer of no
mean ability and her selections are
well received. The chorus is lavishly
costumed and these stage settings' are
all bright and new. The music is
catchy and the songs are well featured.
There are several strong specialties
in the olio. The Melrose troupe has
made a hit here before in a thrilling
acrobatic specialty and Kenny and
Hollis have a clever sketch. Jack
Marshall imitates anything from a
meadowlark to a sawmill and John
Webber keeps the audience in an up
roar with his monolog. The Green sis
ters have an amusing singing and danc
ing turn and Gardner West and Little
have a" delightful musical
