New York, May 7.-The Senate commit

day morning at the Fifth Avenue Hotel,
Beiwtor Cullom, of Illinois, in the chair. Al
bert Fiuk, chairman of the Trunk Line As

eastern scabourd to the Mississippi river.
In answer to questlous regarding the Grand
Trunk road, what it controls and how It

From reports received there seems to be
more suffering In Hyde Park than In any
thor section of the city. COal mining is
bout the only Industry. The collieries of
the Delaware, Lackawanna ft Western
- Railroad Company are all situated there,
and they work even less time than tho col
lieries of the other companlos. It was suld
that a few days since black flairs were dis
played in several places In that vicinity.

of the city and Lackawanna township run
Institutions of this kind. At some of the
stores the clerks, or at least a portion of ths
working force, are kept overnight and Bun-
days. Tho operators understand tho terri
ble needs of the men, and thuy fear that in
j ' their necessities they may be tempted to
I ; , make an attack upon thoso woll Ailed stores.
J The mtners are Intelligent, peaceable and
v honest, but In trying times like these It is
bard to tell what their necessities may fores

the increased demand upon the poor board.
- . Several mon have applied for relief because,
i bavins' worked all tho time that the collier-
, sea were In operation, they were unable to
earn, auffi dent to support their famillos.
I I The condition of the poor is most distress-
', ' tog, and It Is intensified by the fact that
y there Is no prospector better times at ths
mines before the middle of June, owing to
the policy of the coul combination of crowd
ing all the year's work Into a few months.

Grand Trunk controls. A great doalof bus
iness is done on roads over which the Grand
Trunk system has no control."
In reply to further question Mr. Fink
said: "The trunk lines In the United Btato
are the New York Central, Erie, Ontario
ft Western, Pennsylvania, New Jersey Cen
tral. Baltimore ft Ohio and the Lake Hbore.
The Western roads have an association ot
their own, but when it booomos necessary
for the mutual benent or all the roads to ar
range freights, eta, a Joint commission, of
which I am chairman, meets and arrange
ments are made."
"Is there any difference In the manage
ment of the pool now and before the pass
age of the Inter-Btato Commerce law I"
Thcro Is. The pool doos not now attempt
to direct freight, nor does it divide profit.
Iu othor respects tho pool Is now as it always
"Is thoro any discrimination in rates made
among tho roads in the pool?"
"The Canadian Grand Trauk is allowed to
make a discount on all freight It always
bos done so and if it was not allowed to
make a reduced rate It would have to go out
of business. It road is longer and Its ship
per have always had a low rate and they
In replv to the question why the Canadian
roads of lute have been steadily Increasing
their freight business, Mr. Fink said he did
not know unless it was that they had the
advantage of carrying freight brought by
subsidised English steamship lines.

advantages over American roads I"

"That Is what we are coming to," replied
Mr. Fink, "but for the presentl believe that
it la bettor for the roads to remain under
the present management"
By Senator Hlscook " After two years of
prohibition against pooling, please give us
your view upon It affect and reasons, if
any, why pooling soouia neiegauseat"
Answer "It is the obloot of the Inter-
Bute law to make a fixed rate and maintain
it by punishing those who break It In pool

of punishing offenders the pool was so ar

The next witness was president King, of

Mr. King waa unable to explain why tha
Canadian Grand Trunk road was able to get
so much business unless because It was In
the habit of giving a rebate.

Organ enterprises that have been started by ambitious em
ploye! of the Esteys, the business of this original maker
continues to grow. It is tho largest reed Organ Factory
in the world; turns out a completed organ every eight min

volume of tone, thoroughness in manufacture and popular
styles, these Organs hold the wide world for a market with
increasing vigor. Our opponents claim
"just as good as the estey"
but no man wishes to nay "he is prepared to furnish a
