Dr. Ksplnosa,' Oen. Juan1 Idas, and
eleven other professional revolution

ed amnesty by President Diaz and
are now on their way out of Nlcai-ai

It Is probable that this country may
be requested to administer the cus

Tribunal and Interstate Com
merce Commission Are
Now at Peace.
The long feud betwen the Interstate
Commerce Commission and the Com
merce Court, which has been In prog
ress ever since the court was estab
lished, ended today, and the Justices
who preside in the mahogany chamber
on H street and the Commissioners who
t behind oak desks on F stieet will
hereafter work In harmony.
The burying of the hatchet came In
connection with the handling of tho
pipe line cases. Heretofore, the court
has gotten on the Commissions nerves
by Issuing temporary restraining or
ders that nullified for tho time oelnrf
the Commission's orders. There will
probably be no more of them. In thu
pipe line case, the order In which was
to have become effective November 1,
the Commission voluntarily suspended
Its action until the court could review
the pipe line companies' appeals. Tho
Commission has now gone even f Hi
ther. If the court Is unable to luol:
Into the matter before that date the
Commission will suspend Its order again
