FORAKER RATE BILL CREATES A FOURTEEN
BILLION DOLLAR RAILROAD COMBINATION
EX-SECRETARY OF THE NAVY. WILLIAM E. CHANDLER, CALLS
ATTENTION TO THE MOST STARTLING FEATURE OF THE
Written by Wm. E. Chandler,
rurmrr Sccretiiry of 'he Navy and
Senator from Nw Hampshire.
The T.wn lid Mil, Introduced in the
house l)er. f, mrms to contain cffec
tlve provisions for protecting the pub
lic against extortionate railroad rules.
The Koraker hill, Introduced in the
senate on the same day, pcemn to con
tain effective provisions for protecting-
railroad extortion. I K :it the to
hills side hv Bide:
Whenever upon complaint and full
hearing in. Intet state Commerce

he an appeal to the supreme court and
the rase shall have preference there
in over all hut criminal cases.
Whenever the commission believes
that a railroad l charging unjust or
unreiisoiiahle t rat en In may file wit h
, tiie attorney general a Btntement ana
the evidence In support thereof; and
thereupon a petition shall be present
ed to a circuit court sittinar In equity
which shall summarily make Inquiry
and Issue an Injunction against chars

court shall find to be reasonable and

the rate and the railroad must sub
mit, unless a court decides that It la
unlawful: that Is, that the rate la so
low as to lead to the confiscation of
the railroad property.
Senator Koraker says that congress
cannot kIvp the above power to the
i commission. The United States su
preme court says It can!
The Foraker BUI Protects Rail
Kveryotip can see this. 1 he coin
mlsHlon can only Investigate and ex
press Its belief that a rate Is too hich
Is told to see whether the rate is un
reasonable, and If so to Issue an In
junction against it. This the court
will not do because It has no power
to do It. Judges can only decide ques
tions of law. It is not a question of
law what is a reasonable rate; It is a
question of business and common
sense which the Judges will not
touch. So the Foraker bill la decep
tive and worthless pretending to give
a remedy and giving none. This the
railroads know, and, therefore, adopt
this Foraker plan.
The Foraker Bill Creates a Four
teen Billion Railroad Com
bination. All the railroads of the United
States ure authorized and Invited to
form one huge trust and monopoly and
to fix the rates for the whole country.
This gives away ull that has been
gained by the supreme court decisions
in the cases of the trans-Missouri
Freight association, the Joint Traffic
association and Hie Northern Securi
ties company. In the Joint Traffic
association case the nine railroad sys
tems between New York and Chicago
formed an organization of three bil
lions of capital, made all the rates' and
prohibited any one of the roads from
lowering any rate without the consent
of the nine managers of the trust. The
court destroyed this three billion
monster. The Koraker bill creates a
fourteen billion monster, wh!h will
prevent any railroad anywhert n the
country from lowering any rate& 1th
out the consent or the traffic manpers
of the combination.
No substantial error or omission
can be pointed out In this analysis of
WM. E. CHANDLER.

Commission shall decide any existing
transportation rate to" be unreasona
ble, unjustly discriminatory, or unduly
prejudicial, It shall declare and order
what reasonable maximum rate shall
be charged in place of the rate con
demned; and this order shall take ef
fect 30 days after notice to the rail
road. A rehearing may be had at any
time and the order may be modified,
added to, suspended or vacated. .
The railroad may within 30 davs ap
ply to a United States circuit' court
asserting that the order of the com
mission is unlawful. The case shall
be expedited under existing laws and
the question or unlawfulness tried and
.decided by the court. The Bttowwy
general shall defend the order at the l
just," and this shall be the lawful rate.
An appeal lies to the supremo court.
The proceedings shall be at the ex
pense of the United States or the rail
road, as the court may adjudge equit
able and just.

SOME FACIS ABOUT
By Dr. Ella K. Dearborn.
Pneumonia Is classed among the In
fectious diseases, but more likely the
dlplocoecus-pneiimonia is the result
of disease, instead of the cause of It.
Childhood and old age, thoso of
lowered vitality, and tnoso much ex
posed to Inclement weather and alco
holic devotees are especially liable to
pneumonia, and, having had It once,
: are predlsiKised to the second attack.
I Thi. il.mth r.nlo in I hi. ITnlteil States
for pneumonia averages aismt nr. per
; cent, and stands next to consumption
j (tuberculosis) in frequency as cause
It usually begins with a hard chill.
an Is followed by a high fever, with
' pain In the lungs and a short, catchy
respiration, and a peculiar flushing of
j the face on the same side of the af
fected lung, for, fortunately. It more
often involves but one lung, and
. should it be the left side, heart In
volvements aerlously complicates the
, When taken with a chill It is al
j ways best, to call in your physician,
for a chill usually means trouble
ahead, and it Is unwise to waste time
' In home experiments.
AVhilo waiting for the doctor put
the patient, lu bed, In a well venti
lated room, preferably an upstairs
I room with southern exposure, and
keep an even temperature of 05 de
Oil the chest, both back and front,
and cover with a layer of lamb's wool.
Avoid cold compresses and Ice
The food should be light and easily
digested, as broths, soups, milk, whey,
or well beaten eggs, given raw, atiTl
not much of anything tit a time, save
cold water ad libitum.
I object to ' spit-cups, and much
prefer paper napkins or other soft
paper, or cloth, that after use may
lie placed In a paper bag and the
Visitors should not be admitted to
the sick room; It is bad enough to fee
sick, without being critically insepect
ed by curious friends, who usurtTly
tell doleful stories or maintain a
hopeless Bilence and wear woe begone
countenances that would strike terror
to a burglar. If the patient is able
to care whether you do or do not call,
a card expressing sympathy and good
wishes, or a flower, wl'l bear your
message, and not injure the patient.
