Chicago. -Presentation of evi
dence by the shippers who are op
posing the proposed advance in
freight rates was given before the
interstate commerce commission
with the testimony of Gov. W. R.
Stubbs, who declared his opposition
to an increase in rates and his be
lief as a practical builder of rail
roads that valuations have been
placed at too high a point.
"I'll put up a million dollar bond,"
said the governor, "that I can con
struct a main line railroad in Ken
sas, up-to-date line too, for $25,000
a' mile and make 10 per cent profit."
The lowest estimate of railroad
building offered by the railways is

Governor Stubbs time after time
jumped from the role of witness to
that of cros&t-queslioner.'
At one point in the cross-exami
nation by T. J. Norton, attorney for
thc Santa Fe. Gov. Stubbs declared:
"Now let me tell you something.
There is not as much risk in build
ing a railroad in a good territory as
in starting a bank. I don't think
the roads need preferential rights;
they can make money as they are
and they should be run on the' same
business sbasis as a bank."
Later Gov. Stubbs again stood up,
and, punctuating his words with
blows on the bench beside him,
"The railroads ought to be allow
ed lo make 5 or 6 per cent oh their
actual investment and also lay aside
a nice surplus for emergency use.
But they ought not to invest that
emergency surplus from time to
time in permanent improvement
and then add it to the capitalization.
"Every business man ought to
have a surplus for a rainy day and
the railroad should, loo.
"I don't think that $25,000,000 is
too great 'an amount for the Santa
Fe as an emergency fund for a bad
year or a washout but keep ? that
i'und separate and don't capitalize
it. The people will be pleased to
pay the railroad liberal returns on
their actual investments if they will
only stop stock juggling."
At one point in his testimony Gov.
"The curse of business * in this
country is the stock juggling and
high finance. Stop this high
finance. Make every dollar of cap

vested in the road and people will
fall over themselves to buy railroad

Weihle and Z. T. Vinson argued that
the Kentucky courts had erred in
not holding the statute unconstitu

ded the validity of the law.

BACON HIGH TJ CHICAGO.
Corn and Hogs Cheaper But Meat li
35 Cents a Pound.
Chicago.-In the face of steady
decline in the price of hogs and
corn on which they are fed, .Chica
goans who desire to eat bacon have
discovered that they were compell
ed to pay the highest price ever ob
tained for the salt meat in times of
peace-35 cents a pound sliced. If
the housewife was willing to cut it
dp herse?f she might have reduced
this figure to three pounds for $1,
but that was the best she could do.
It is up, and to all appearances, will
stay at this record-smashing figure
for some months. The sole reason
for this situation, according to C.
W .Foster, the veteran provision
dealer, lies in the shortage of bacon
No matter what the facts might
seem to indicate, said he, the diffi
culty lies in thc inability of the
packers to buy the porkers.
