I sent'nS a complete plan for the
physical valuation of all the
railroads In the United States
and expressing firm conviction
that overcapitalization can never bo pre
vented or equitable transportation rates
fixed until sich valuation js made. Dem
ocratic and Republican members of the
Interstate commerce commission have
joined hands In an appeal to congress
for an appropriation of $3,000,000 to ac
complish that, great, work. They ask for
an additional appropriation to Investi
gate the amount of water in present rail
As one of the essential steps to an ade
quate physical valuation the commission
announces that it would Insist upon au
thority to Investigate the books of J.
P. Morgan & Co, and Kuhn, Loeb & Co.
This revolutionary step was advised by
Commissioner Clements, Democrat, and
Meyer, Republican, at an executive ses
sion of the house committee of Inter
state and foreign commerce, now consid
ering a bill drawn by Chairman Adam
son, authorizing the commission to make
the physical valuation and the bond and
Require Mitch Time.
Commissioners Clements and Meyer ex
pressed the belief that they can make
the special inquiry Into stocks and bonds
in ,two years, but that It will take at
least three years to complete the valua
tion of tho railroad properties, which are
said to be worth $18,500,000,000. Judge
The inquiry ought to be extended
to enable the commission or who
ever undertakes It to make an In

conduct these organizations, like

The theory of President Taft'B
stock and bond commission, as shown
by its report, is that the matter of
capitalization is practically imma
terial upon the question of reason
able rates. Theoretically, that may
be sound. It may be that the courts
, would hold that the railroads were
entitled to a reasonable rate, whether
It earns Its interest on its bonds
or pnj'H stock dividends or not. But
what is a reasonable rate? It takes

Commerce Commission Holds
for Justice, Disregarding
FEDERAL LAW SUPREME
Carriers Must Meet National
Statutes First, State Acts
if They Can.
"WASHINGTON, "March 21. The" inter
state commerce commission, In an .opin
ion made public today, established the
far-reaching principle that a railroad
must so adjust Its rates that Justice
shall bo done between communities re
gardless of state lines.
If a railroad makes a low rate upon
traffic wholly within a state, even when
forced to do so by a stato commission,
It must accord the same rate to Inter
state traffic moving under substantially
The principle was laid down by a vote
of four to three. The minority held that
the powers of congress were usurped by
the majority opinion that the remedy for
such a situation should be applied
through additional legislation.
The case practically precipitated a
conflict between federal and state au
thority over the control of interstate
traffic. The opinion of tho majority by
Commissioner JLane Is a dellnlte asser
tion of the supremacy of national regu
latory authorities over the powers exor
cised by any state. It Is tho first time
this assertion has been made distinctly
by the 'commission. Chairman Prouty
and Commissioners Clark and Meyer
concurred with Commissioner Lane, and
Commissioners Clements, Harlan and
In Louisiana Case.
A proceedings brought by the Louis
iana commission placed in Issue the
right of Interstate carriers to discrim
inate in favor of state traffic and against
"Tho complaint," the opinion says, "Is
that the carriers defendant make rates
out of Dallas and other Texas points
into eastern Texas which are much low
er than those which they extend Into
Texas from Shreveport, La. A rate of
60 cents carries first-class traffic to the
westward from Dallas, a distance of 160
miles, while the same rate of GO cents

of a policy to protect and promote the
jobbing Interests of Texas. Tho Louis
iana commission declared that Louisiana
was being discriminated against because
of the action of the higher rates from
Shreveport. westward and demanded an
adjustment. The contentions of Louis
iana wcro sustained by the commission.
Federal Laws First.
Tho majority held that:
"If a state by tho exercise of Its law
ful power establishes rates which the In
terstate carrier makes effective upon
state traffic, that carrier does no with
tho full knowledge that the federal gov
ernment requires It to apply such rates
under dike conditions upon Interstate
traffic.. To soy that an Interstate car
rier may discriminate against interstate
commerce because of the order of a
state commission would be to admit that
a state may limit and prescribe the flow
of commereo between the states.
"An Interstate carrier must respect
the federal law and If It Is also subjected
to stato law It must respect that In so
far as It can without doing violence to
Its obligations under tho national au
thority." Three Dissent.
Commissioner Clements, in his dis
senting opinion, maintains that the com
mission has transcended Its authority.
He urgos that, the situation between
Louisiana and Texas can be reached
only byadditlonal legislation, and that
tho commission In Its decision haa
usurped the powers of tho congress.
Commissioner Harlan dissented from
the majority opinion on substantially tho
same grounds. He held that the ma
jority opinion Is "Insecure" because It
flows from a process of reasoning that Is
a mere construction, rather than an ad
ministration of the law.
Commissioner McChord dissents rad
ically from the majority. He concludes:
"My position Is that this commls$ion
should confine itself within the four cor
ners of the law of Its creation, usurping
neither the legislative function of the
congress nor the judicial power of the

to be elected by botb parties, tho long
list of names leading to monstrosities In

ballot Is fourteen feet long and in all dis
tricts they are of cumbersome dimen

today by Samuel S. Koenlg, chairman of
the New York county Republican com
mittee, expressed pleasure that Republi
cans of the East Side are to have an op
portunity In the primary to express their
preference for a presidential candidate.
The telegram was sent In reply to a lcl
tor from Chairman Koenlg, Informing
him that the Republicans of the East
Side would support his candidacy and
"My dear Mr. Koenlg: Your letter of
March 21 Is received. This Is to thank
you and through you the menibors of the
Republican county committee for their
support, which I warmly appreciate. I
noto with satisfaction that every enrolled
Republican will be allowed to cast his
ballot for tho election of delegates to the
national convention without fear or favor.
In no tvotlng' population In the United
States docs tho pulse respond more
quickly than In tho East Side. Their
loyalty to Republican principles Is the
highest endorsement of thorn. I hope
with you that their will may be fully
and fairly and accurately registered."
Chairman Koenlg in his letter to the
president, said tho Republicans of tho
East Side arc opposed to tho policies of
Colonel Roosevelt as outlined In his
speeches at Columbus, O.. and at Car
negie Hall in this city. He said they
have not "embraced the un-American
doctrines of the recall of the judiciary
and tho referendum on judicial decisions."
President Taft was told by Chairman
Koenlg that the primary would be ."sur
rounded by the sa.me legal safeguards as
a general election. He called attention
to the. 'many errors and fraudulent signa
tures which ho said have been found on
petitions to nominate candidates for del
egates circulated by Colonel Roosevelt's

county committee had decided to take
no steps to determine the validity of the

Massachusetts, after canvassing the
three states, have reported that the sen

"Over one-half of. the delegaten al

COLUMBUS, O.. March 24. Prior to
his departure for Nebraska tonight, E.
H. Moore, chairman of the Ohio Harmon
campaign committee, gave out an open
letter to William J. Bryan In which he
calls upon the latter for proof of Insinu
ations that "Governor Harmon Is the
candidate of Wall ;Areot Interests," and
also asks Mr. Bryan to explain "tho
fact that Governor Woodrow Wilson,
whom you are supporting, is wallowing
In a campaign fund, the size of which
according lo Editor Henry Wattorson,
has not been soon since the days of Sen
Mr. Moore expects to spend several
days this week in Nebraska in the In
terest, of Governor Harmon.
Mr. Moore's letter says In part:
This morning's press quotes you
as charging that Governor Harmon
Is the candidate of the Hill and
Morgan Interests May I inquire
how you reconcile this charge with
tho thoroughly known and generally
admitted fact that the amount of
money expended In furtherance of
Mr. Wilson's candidacy far exceeds
in the aggregate the expenditures of
all other candidates: that for the
past year your candidate has carried
on, and Is still conducting a publicity
campaign that has cost a fortune?
That somewhere there has been
found a fund sufficient io produce
"Journalists" to pollute newspapers
and magazines with falsehoods con
cerning Governor Harmon and his
public career and to Hood this and
other states with literature in praise
of your candidate and In defamation
Do you not think that your own
reputation for fair dealing demands
that you should give some concrete
Illustration to Justify your oft-repeated
charge that "Harmon Is a re
actionary and a tool of Wall street"'"
The letter declares that Harmon, as
governor, little deserves to be termed a
tool of the Interests when ho has brought
about legislation "that has shifted the
burden from the shoulders of the farmer
and small home owners to those inter
ests and other rich tax dodgers."
