"The Washington Herald wae
of the greatest assistance to us
not only because It -was agitating
the question, but because of tho
fact that It furnished me with
many Important facts as to the
procedure necessary to filing for
mal complaint with the Inter
state Commerce Commission. Un
doubtedly at the next meeting of
the association resolutions of ap
preciation of its efforts and aid
will be passed by the association.
"Without the aid of The Herald
we could not have v. on so sweep
ing a victory. I am delighted
over the result of our fight, and
am confident the people of Ana
costla will show their apprecia
tion of the aid given us bv The
Herald." Charles R. Burr Presi
dent of the Anacostla Citizens'
For a third time within two years, the
efforts made by The 'Washington Her
ald In the behalf of the residents living
In the outlying sections of the city to
secure for them free delivery of tele
grams, express packages, purchases
made in the downtown sections, and
freight, were crowned with success when
the Interstate Commerce Commission
yesterday decided that the cltlxens of
Anacostla have been dlscrimnated
against, in that they have been denied
the same privilege enjood in other sec
tions of Washington.
About two jears ago The Washington
Herald started a crusade against the
practice of the express and telegraph
companies in refusing to deliver tele
grams and express packages In the out
lving sections of the city. Upon the in
formation and data furnished it by The
Herald, the Anacostla Citizens' Associa
tion, following an investigation, tiled a
formal complaint with the Interstate
Commerce Commission protesting
against the discriminations.
Tho first triumph In the crusade came
before formal complaint was made to
the commission when the telegraph
companies voluntarily extended tolhe
citizens of Anacostla the same privi
leges enjojed by downtown sections
Ilntlroad Is Included.
The commission also ruled that the
Anacostla citizens have also been dis
criminated against by the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad, in that the railroad has
withheld from Anacostlans the privileges
of receiving at their residences baggage
checks of the carrier for baRgage destin
ed to Interstate points, while extending
the privileges to residents of other sec
tions of Washington.
An order was Issued yesterday by the
commission requiring the Philadelphia,
Baltimore and Washington Railway, on
or before March 1, 1JU3. to comply with
the findings of the commission. The
commission held, that while the transfer
company is not a common carrier, it
occupies a peculiar relation to the rail
road wh'ch grants to it the exclusive
right of transporting and checking bag
gage, and as agents of the railroads
they are responsible for their acts.
At the time of the filing of the com
plaint The Herald furnished Charles A.
Burr, president of the Anacostla Citi
zens' Association, with data, and facts,
which decided the association U file for
mal complaint T S Bright and E. A
Beck appeared before the commission for
the citizens' association.

THE TREND OF THINGS.
Archbishop Qlennon, head of. the
Roman Cathollo Diocese of St. Louis, Is
reported to have said In a recent sermon:
"I have little sympathy with turkey raf-fles-and
turkey trots as means of raising
money for churches. Ttf succeed, a
church ore any worthy movement must
be decent throughout, and must not be
contaminated by suggestions of gambling
or questionable amusements."
News from Seoul Indicates that the
Court of Second Instance, trying the
appeal of the Koreans convicted of sedi
tious conspiracy there, has agreed to
remedy tho crowning Injustice of the
court below and tacnll witnesses for
the defense. The court adjourned for the
holidays and will reconvene on January
A when tho defense Is to be heard.
In this connection It Is reported that
the Japanese Bar Association has ap
pointed a committee of four of Its most
eminent members to Investigate why the
government has taken no steps to pun
ish missionaries who. according to tho
"confessions" read In court at Seoul,
fomented reb11Ion atalcst Japan. The
missionaries arc confident that this com
mittee will be Impartial, and they ex
pect to demonstrate to It not only that
they are themselves totally Innocent of
trjing to stir up sedition in Korea, but
also that the charges of conspiracy
against the Christian Koreans are un
founded. If the bar association's com
mittee can be persuaded of this. Its re
port win have an enormous effect on
public opinion In Japan and do more
than anything else in sight can be ex
pected to do toward modifying the bit
terness of the Korean colonial policy.
