RAILWAY RATE CONTROL
Interstate Commerce Court Pro
posed by the President.
WHY HE WISHES FOR LEGISLATION
Believe* 4)ueatton of Retsl

Than Tariff Revlalon He Want*
Railroad Men and Shippers to Meet'
Dlaeaaa Quatloa of Increased
president Roosevelt admits to' his
eallers that he ia more interested in leg
islation for the regulation of interstate
railroads as tbe more pressing need
than In the modification of the tariff,
•ays the New York Post's Washington
correspondent. There Is a political as
pect to the matter which he has pre
sented to some of his callers. It is
Mated at in these lines of his message:
"The government must In increasing
degree supervise and regulate the work
of the railways engaged in Interstate
commerce, and such Increasing super
vision is tbe only alternative to an in
crease of the present evils on the one
hand or a still more radical policy on
The "still more radical policy on the
other" suggests the political argument.
The Democratic party may be reorgan
ised along Socialistic lines. The large
increase in the Socialistic vote and the
discussion of the movement and its
principles which that increase has
btonght about carries a menace to the
railroads and other property interests
of the country. Tbe "still more radical
policy" would be government owner
ship. Most people wonid be surprised
If they knew in what quarters this gov
ernment ownership proposal was seri
ously considered. The growth of So
cialistic ideals has been very rapid of
late years, as shown by the attention
which British experiments In munici
pal ownership have attracted. Street
railways are one great prize for which
the Socialists strive, and from this it is
only a step to the lnterurban roads
and thus to the interstate lines.
Bnt the railroads of the country are
not ready for government ownership,
nor do they and their associates in
capitalistic enterprises relish the ad
vance of the Socialist policy which the
government ownership of railroads
would bring about.
The remedy for radicalism, as point
ed out by the president, is to cure the
evils which give radicalism an excuse
for being. The escape from the So
cialistic remedy is a more stringent
federal control and a correction of the
abuses which make the people turn to
ward government ownership. Many
railroad men agree with the adminis
tration In thla matter. The president
has beard, directly and indirectly, from
some of the most influential managers
and proprietors In the country, and he
finds that they have been thinking
along the same lines which he has and
that they arc as anxious as he to have
congress take some wise action. In
their minds it is only a question as to
what should be done. That is what is
being thrashed out now.
It Is President IlooseveK's desire to
have the railroad men and the repre
sentative shippers get together this
.winter to discuss the question of in
creased federal supervision of the in
terstate highways. The president has
several tentative plans, which be is
discussing, bnt he does not regard them
as more than suggestions. He believes
that the remedy will necessarily as
sume the nature of a compromise, and
hs thinks the two sides can begin none
too soon to trade ideas toward reach
ing a common ground.
One plan which the president lias dis
cussed with members of congress and
others is tbe creation of an interstate
commerce court. An entirely errone
ous report was circulated that this
court would be of a bipartisan com
plexion. This Idea is vigorously re
sented by the president, who says that
such a court, If appointed by bim,
would be a court of railway experts,
regardless of political beliefs. The very
Idea that the subject of railway rates
might be considered as in any way re
lated to politics be denounces In most
If a federal Interstate commerce
court were established it would have
jurisdiction over all purely Judicial
questions, and such functions would
be taken from the present interstate
commerce commission and vested in
this court. Tbat, incidentally, would
tend to meet the existing criticism that
the commission is a body which pos
sesses administrative, legislative and
Judicial functions, all to be exercised
simultaneously. The commission would
In 6uch an event be given additional
power to initiate and prosecute cases
against the roads and before the Inter
state commcrce court.
It would also le part of the plan
tbat the interstate commcrce commis
sion be reduced in its membership to
three or possibly one commissioner.
Experience has demonstrated that a
commission is less effective when com
posed of many members thau when it
Is made up of one or three good men
With all the needed assistants. The
commission would be fnrnished with
an ample appropriation to conduct in
quiries and to prosecute any violation*
of the law brought to its attention.
Another plan which has been sug
gested is to increase tbe power of the
present Interstate commerce commis
sion. Tbe president believes that the
salaries should be such .as to attract
practical railroad men in order that
the commission might be composed of
the best taicnt in the country. The In
crease power in the present commis
sion would be in the direction of revis
ing rates nnfl regulations.

It is doubtful if any city iu the Unit

election celebration as tlie Republicans
recently held at Moscow, Ida., says the

a huge fire, fed by lints, burned within
one block of tlio center of the city,

On election day Moscow Republicans,
feeling sure of victor}*, were loudly
proclaiming on Main street wliat they
would do to the Democrats in the na

United States except Missouri, and if
Missouri joins the Union we'll burn
our hats," they shouted, and with a
general round of handshaking the bar
gain was sealed.
True to their word, the Republicans
began gathering hats until the collec
tion numbered several hundred. Just
ss darkness came the hats, packed in
half a dozen barrels, were unloaded
nsar the center of the city, and the fire
was soon biasing fiercely. This was
great fun for a few minutes, but it
soon became too tame a celebration for
Suddenly with a great rush every
body seemed to be after everybody
else's hat, and about a minute later
there were fifty bareheaded men
watching the flames devour their head

make a big enough blaze, and a gener
al raid resulted In a good collection of
Democratic "lids." The crowd scat

lose and a few of tbe bolder spirits. At

Ever Willing to See Reporters.
The late ex-Congressman William C.
Preston Breckinridge of Kentucky was
in his early days a reporter on a west
ern paper. His courtesy to newspaper
men eveu at his busiest moments,
when Interruption greatly inconven
ienced him, has often been commented
upon, but not generally Understood,
says the Philadelphia Press. The rea
son for this accidentally dropped out
at a big tariff reform meeting at Tex
tile hall, Kensington, one summer.
The white haired Kentuckian had
gone back of the stage after a brilliant
speech to catch a few minutes' rest be
fore making another in a hall across
tbe street. It was a hot, sultry night,
and perspiration was pouring down the
congressman's face. He looked wilted,
uncomfortable, tired out.
A reporter's card was handed to him.
"Tell him to come In." "But, congress
man, you must have some rest," pro
tested Magistrate Lennon, solicitous of
his welfare, and you know you will
have to speak again in a few minutes."
"That doesn't matter," was the quick
reply. Tnrnlng to Mr. Singerly, Magis

congressman said: "I always see a re

SECRETARY HAY'S JOKE.
Diplomat Con alders His ''Old Am*" nn
Diplomats stationed in Washington
are gratified with the announcement
by President Roosevelt that Secretary
Hay will remain In tbe cabinet for an
other fonr years, says a Washington
special to the New York Herald. This
is because the diplomats to a man es
teem Secretary Hay very highly. For
tbe most part they know his views on
leading questions. He is extremely
practical, and he is frank.
From time to time there has been
talk of Secretary Hay retiring because
of ill health. As a matter of fact, al
though he Is sixty-five years old, he is
In excellent condition physically, lie
has had bis joke about the frequent
rumors of bis poor health. To a friend
who once congratulated hiin upon his
excellent appearance ho said, with as
sumed weariness, "Ah, yes, but 1 am
suffering from an Incurable disease."
The friend, surprised, expressed dis
belief, but Mr. Hay insisted his malady
was hopeless. The friend said perhaps
it was not really so bad, and what was
"Old age," replied the secretary.

SERIOUS DEFf.CT IN LE6AL PAPERS
INDICTED MAN'S PRESENCE IN
OHIO ON MARCH 5, 1903,
Albany, ^N. Y., Dec. 27.—Sheriff
Barry of Cleveland, O.. who expects to
arrest Dr. Leroy S. Chadwick, hus
band of Mrs. Chadwiclc, when he
lands in New York, on the charge of
forging tbe name of Andrew Carnegie,
met a check in his plans when he
teiled to obtain from Governor Odell
the requisition papers necessary to
permit the transportation of Dr. Chad
wick to Ohio for trial. He called at
the executive chamber at the capitol,
but was informed by Judge John T.
Joyce, tbe governor's pardon and requi
sition clerk, that his papers were de
fective in that they failed to prove
that Dr. Chadwick was in the state of
Ohio on March 5, 1903, when the al
leged forgery was committed. Sheriff
Barry decided not to try to correct his
papers now, but to go on to New York
and arrest Dr. Chadwick and arrange
for his requisition afterwards.
Before leaving for New York Sun
day the Cleveland sheriff telegraphed
to the executive department here ask
ing that his papers be prepared so that
there might be no delay upon his ar
rival early Monday morning. When
the telegram was received Governor
Odell was at his home in Newburgh
and the message was given to his- par
don clerk. Judge Joyce immediately
telephoned the governor and received
authority from him to deliver the de
aired warrant in case the application
papera were properly drawn up. Sher
iff Barry tailed al the executive cham
ber and presented to Judge Joyce the
requisition papers signed by Governor
Herrick of Ohio asking an extradition
warrant to enable him to take his
prisoner out of New York state.
When the sheriff learned that liis
proof was defective there was at first
some talk of his returning in person
to Ohio for the purpose of getting the
corrections. After further consulta
tion with Judge Joyce he concluded
to telegtapli to have the affidavits pre
pared it ml sent to him in New York.
He said this was a purely formal mat
ter and that affidavits could be prompt
ly obtained showing that Dr. Chadwick
was in Ohio on or about March 5,
The Ohio sheriff left immediately
afterward for New York, where he will
wait for Dr. Chadwick's arrival, whose
steamer is expected Wednesday. He
will consult with the New York city
authorities regarding the best course
of procedure. Before leaving Sheriff
Barry said that while he was disap
pointed at not obtaining the requisi
tion at the time the failure would not
delay him to any appreciable extent..
