The suit is the result of a series of
articles that have been appearing in the
by Ba Baker I
the January issue the third article oi
the series appears, it being devoted to
"The Private Car and the Beer Trust."
Mr. Baker takes up "Rebates to Mil

The story concludes with several par
agraphs in which it says that Mr.
Phihpp lobbied against the La Follette
legislation at Madison. Charges of re
bating like those made against Philipp
are pending against another company
the federal court here as a test of the
Elkms law's application to private cars,
but the Philipp company was not organ

charged by Baker.

Calhoun, Roosevelt's Special En
voy, Sees No War Menace
Journal Special Sertioe.
Washington, Dec. 27.William J.
Calhoun, President Roosevelt's commis
sioner to Venezuela, has nearly com
pleted his report, in which he will state
that Venezuela has strong justification
in proceeding against the New Yorl-c
and Bermudez Asphalt company for itp
failure to live up to its contract ancl
for its participation in the Matos revo
lution. He holds, however, that the
company has equitable rights which
should be recognized by Venezuela.
This report will show that there is noth
ing in the situation whldh will disturb
the peaceful relations between the two
governments, but that the differences
can be adjusted amicably.
Commissioner Calhoun maintains that
the proceedings against the asphalt
company for the forfeiture of its char-
ter have been in accordance with the
laws of Venezuaja^ and that President
Castro did not remove judges
from the bench* and appoint others
so as to secure a decision fa
vorable to his government. The
report will also show that Germany
is in high favor in Venezuela and that
her portion of foreign debt, which is
being paid off under a mutual arrange
ment among the foreign creditors, is
always first to be paid. In the prepon
derating influence of Germany 'at
Caracas may be found some o_ the ause
for the animosity against France, altho
the report does not say so.

Mrs. B. M. La Follette will give a
big reception at the executive resi
dence tomorrow afternoon in honor of
Mrs. J. 0. Davidson.
Hastings, Neb., Deo. 27.'After *a
sixteen-mile race an automobile with
a passenger train. Dr. J. S. Latta of
Kenesaw, defeated what 1B alleged to
.have been an attempt to kidnap the 4-
year-old Son of George Coffey*
A few moments after the east-bound
passenger tfrain pulled out of Kenesaw
Christmas afternoon, Dr. Latta
climbed into a toun'ng car and started
pursuit. The race was about even to
the first station, the train moving off
just before the auto arrived. At Hast
ings, however, the train was overtaken
and the child recovered.
The race was the result of-a woman's
appeal. The boy had been carried
away by Enoch Coffey of Junction
City, his u1tt le. Mrs. George Cerf-
fey asked Latta to overtake the two
and he started as they Were leaving.
Enoch Coffey insisted that he merely
meant to take the child down the road
a short distance and return with him
onr a later train.
