WASHINGTON-. Jan. 3. The biggest
rebating Inquiry in years got under way
today, when Interstate Commerce Com
missioner Harlan began hearings to de
termine the nature and amount of the
payments made by the trunk line rail
roads cost of the Mississippi and north
of the Ohio river, to the terminal rail
roads owned by the steel trust, the har
vester trust and other corporations.
It is believed the amounts will run up
into the millions. Inasmuch as the prin
cipal business of the terminal railroads
.s to bring Ih raw materials for the
Plants of their proprietary companies
and talec out the finished products, the
interstate commerce commission is of the
opinion that the payments arc illegal and
thev are virtually rebates,

Baltimore & Sparrows Point Railroad

amount received last year hv the Balti
more Sparrows Point railroad In this
manner was Sl-'O.IMS. and h road is

The Maryland Steel company, which
owns the road, is owned bv me Penn

t-arrylng the relationship of tho com

Railroad company until a short time ago

out. It ia the one play of the season to
receive the universal press indorsements
In N'ew York, and Adolph Klauber in the
New 1'ork Times says "Broadway Jones"
Is "a veritable gem." Tho appeal In
"Broadway Joncs:' is its cleanliness. Mr.
Cohan has taken simple homo life ideas
and constructed an Ingenious play ab
solutely free from any suggestion of
coarseness, but so full of veal hearty fun
that the audiences who view It arc kept
In a constant state of laughter from the

NOTED STRONG MAN
AT THE EMPRESS j
OF tho tbousaud and 0110 feats per
formed by tho professional
strong men who have becu secu uu
dcr canvas and on tho vaudeville
stages of this country aud Europe, it
is doubtful if thoro ia moro Ihau one
spcclaclo that lias uot been copied and
used by rival performors, in all the
gaa:cy of tricks and feats devised by
the stroug men and their managers.
Jn any event there is but one leal
in Paul Spadoni's repertoire, of accom
plishments that to a ccrtaitiiy Spadom
knows has never been attempted by
those who seek to follow in his foot
steps. Spadoni is the world famous strong
man aud juggler of heavv weights,
whose appearance at tho tinipress this
week as the headline, feature of tho
bill now runniug llierc, bus created so
niurb comment among playgoers tho
past Jew days.
The spectacle that. Spadoni declares
has ucver been attempted by any other
strong man appearing professionally iu
this couutry or on tho contiucnt is the
fcafc of catching a balloon basket con
taining a man, the two droppiug from
a balloon suspended fifty feet in the
air. Spadoni performed this feat for
two consecutive years, catching the
man and the basket ou tho back of his
shoulders as they dropped -with light
ning rapidity upon bciug cut loose
from tho bnlloon above.
