WILLIAMS INTRODUCES BILLS
Measures A'.':ctlng Tariff and Cam.
palgn Contributions Offered
Dy Ansoelated Press.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.—Represent
ative Williams of Mississippi, the
leader of the minority In the house,
today Introduced a number of bills
and Joint resolutions affecting the
tariff and campaign contributions.
These contemplate free trade with the
Philippines; a reassembling of tho
United Btatfs and Canadian Joint high
commission, with a view to freer trade
relations between the United States
and Canada, nnd a minimum tariff for
the United States. The bill regarding
campaign contributions forbids federal
corporations chartered by tho federal
government engaged In Interstate com
merce from making nuch contributions.
These measures, it is believed, Indicate
the probable course of the minority on
the subject of the tariff revision and
reciprocity and the question of contri
butions in political campaigns.
Mr. Williams said today that other
bills may be looked for, as he would
not be satisfied with revision to tho
extent Indicated, but from his stand
point It was merely the first step In
tho right direction and an Invitation to
the Republican party to declare its In
Mr. Williams introduced a bill to
authorize the imposition of an Income
tax. The Philippines tariff bill pro
vides that all articleß, the product and
growth of the Philippines, shall be ad
mitted Into the United States free of
Import duty and that all articles,
the product and growth of the balance,
of the United States, shall be admitted
Into the Philippines free of import
duty and that nothing contained in
tho bill shall be construed to repeal
any provision of the Paris treaty be
tween the United States and Spain.
Another bill proposes to establish a
minimum tariff of the United States.
It declares the existing tariff schedule
to constitute the maximum tariff of
the United States and a reduction of
20 per cent from them, or rates equal to
four-fifths of the existing duties, to
constitute' the minimum tariff of the
United States. Th<> bill extends the
operation of the minimum tariff to all
such countries which grant admission
to their markets of articles the product
and growth of the United States at
minimum tariff rates. Mr. Williams
said he had selected 20 per cent as the
amount of reduction to be made in
order to constitute a minimum tariff,
although he thought that the reduction
should be greater than that out of def
erence to Republication opinions and
give Republicans who are sincere and
honest In their desire to reduce the
tariff an opportunity to act and with
the knowledge of the fact that they
would meet with no factious opposi
tion but with tho hearty support of

IN REBATE CASE
FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS HE HAS
Proceedings Against Missouri Pacific,
Santa Fe and Others Regarding
Coat and Salt Shipments
By A ppnr In toil Presn.
KANSAS CITY, Dec. 4.— Judge John
F. Phillips, In the United States district
cour^ for the western district of Mis
souri, today delivered an opinion hold
ing that his court was without juris
diction In the enses brought here by
the federal government charging the
Missouri Pacific, the Atchlson, Topeka
and Santa Fe and other railways with
giving rebates on shipments of salt In
Kansas and on coat in Colorado and
other products in violation of the El
kins act. The motion of the railways
to quash the proceedings was granted
On March 25, 1902, at the Instigation
of the attorney general's office In
Washington, Judge Phillips granted a
temporary order restraining the Mis
souri Pacific, the Santa Fe, the Chicago
and Alton, the Burlington and the Rock
Island railway companies from giving
rebates on various products. Last
summer M. D. Purdy, assistant attor
ney general, brought additional pro
ceedings, citing the officials of the rail
ways named for contempt, In the alle
gation that they had violated the
court's order In continuing to give re
bates. The contempt proceedings were
argued In Judge Phillips' court on No
vember 8, when the attorneys for the
railways moved that the proceedings be
quashed, claiming that the court was
without jurisdiction. •' :V: '
The grounds of the decision In Judge
Phillips' opinion today are substantial
ly as follows:
The original bill of complaint, on
which the restraining order was
granted March 25, 1902, was filed at the
Instance of the attorney general of the
United Stutes, predicated alleged viola
tions of the Interstate commerce law In
granting rebates on shipments of grain
und packing house products from Kan
sas City to eastern points. This suit
was baßed on the conception of the at
torney general that the United States
had a right to resort to the United
States circuit court in equity to carry
out the policy of the interstate com
merce law and to enjoin railroads gen
erally from violating it. But after the
temporary restraining order was made
and after the demurrer to the original
bill was argued and submitted, the su-,
preme court of the United States, In
the case of the Missouri Pacific Rail
way company vs. the United States,
1898 U. S. reports, decided that the
United States circuit court had no jur
isdiction to grant such relief; so when
the restraining order was issued by the
United States circuit court for the
western district of Missouri, the court
was without jurisdiction to make it
and therefore the defendant could not
be held to be in contempt of court for
violating an order which it was without
Jurisdiction, to make.
Second, while what is known as the
IClkins act, passed by congress In Feb
ruary, 1!M)3, authorized such a pro
ceeding by the United States district
attorney of the jurisdiction where the
offense was committed, this act being
passed nearly a year after the restrain
ing order of March 25, 1902, had no ret
roactive operation so as to validate
The concluding part of the court's
opinion is as follows:
"However reprehensible the conduct
of the defendant railroad company (if
it be ns alleged In the transaction)
may have been, or however much dis
posed the court be to compel obedience
to its lawful mandates, it Is persuaded
that It is without authority In this pro
ceeding to draw to it the question in
volved, rightfully belonging to the jur
isdiction of the United States circuit
courts for the districts of Kansas and
Colorado. This, salth the law, Is a per
petual injunction upon the judge, when
called upon to exert judicial power
which he may not disregard without
standing in contempt of his own con

University of Southern California,
which are nearly completed. It Is ex
pected that the opening will bo held
Tuesday, December 12, and that Mlshop
Hamilton will he present and take
part In the exercises.
The Improvements, which have more
than doubled the capacity of the U. S.
C, have been muter wiiy since May,
and have coat about $50,000, making the
valuation of the buildlngx, with ton
acre campus, $150,000. It is now known
as the greater university.
With the Improvements, the Univer
sity of Southern California ranks an one
of the foremost Institutions of learning
of California, having a capacity for 1000
students at the university proper, there
being several colleges affiliated with it,
which will make the number of pupils
rench about 1500.
Wings have been ridded to the north
and south sides of the original building,
which has been entirely remodeled. The
main building, as it Is known, com
prises the chapel, library, halls anil
athletic offices, with the office for tho
dean of the girls' department.
Library Is Enlarged
The chapel has been enlarged with a
large swell front bay window, which Is
lighted with stained glass, and has also
been enlarged by an annex, making the
seating capacity of 600. This can again
be enlarged by using the main hall,
there being folding doors. JThe chapel
Is fitted up with a- large pipe* organ and
a grand piano. The library, across the
hall, has been greatly expanded, lta
annex being in the new building of the
north wing. New tables and chairs,
In the prevailing mission style, lend a
distinctive air to these rooms, where
over 8000 volumes are at the disposal
of the students.
In the north wing, on the first floor,
are situated the main office und private
office of the president, a large study
hall for girls nnd several class rooms.
The Young Woman's Christian asso
ciation, which has a large membership
among tho university students, also has
a room in this wing, which will be
cosily fitted up.
The second floor of the north wing,
is given up to departments of biology,
botany, bacteriology and zoology. There
are also the offices of the different pro
fessors. The second floor of the main
building is occupied by the Latin,
mathematics, French, German, history
and Greek departments.
Music Department Well Arranged
The music department presents one
of the most cosy departments of the in
stitution. It occupies the first floor of
the south wing, and has a separate en
trance facing on Thirty-seventh street.
A large reception hall is elegantly, fur
nished, the woodwork being in the pre
vailing Flemish oak, the -furnishings
being in several rich shades of red and
brown. There are six music studios,
with two rooms devoted to the art de
partment. The walls of the main hall
are enhanced by several paintings by
Prof. W. L. Judson, dean of the Col
lege of Fine Arts, an affiliated college
of the university.
The second story of the south wing
is devoted to the chemistry department,
there being six rooms devoted to this
study, all fitted with the most modern
appliances, with running water for each
student. There Is also a dark room for
chemical work and three laboratories
aevoted to various phases of the work.
Assaying and mineralogy are also
: The third floor of tho main building
Is devoted to the college of oratory,
which has three rooms, the Aristotelian
hall for the young men's debating club,
and the Athena hall for the young wo
men. The halls are well fitted and are
handsomely furnished. The college of
oratory rooms are also very cosy and
i No Lack of Room
Throughout the building of fifty
rooms, each room has un abundance of
sunshine and standing in the center of
a ten-acre campus, there Is no danger
of a lack of fresh air. The building
throughout is heated with steam, elec
tricity and gas being used for lighting
The building, with its two wings, has
been transformed into a modification
of the mission style of architecture, and
when the grounds are completed, will
present an imposing sight as a monu
ment of Methodism in Southern Califor
nia. Automobile drives are now being
arranged about the grounds.
Aside from the main building the
academy has a building of its own,
which is situated on the campus, and
which Is also modern In every detail.
At the rear Is the gymnasium build-
Ing, where many college gatherings are
held. The U. 8. C. also boasts of a fine
athletic field and the only cinder track
among the local colleges, with two ten
nis courts and a new basketball court.
Dr. G. F. Bovard, himself one of the
three first graduates of the university,
is president, and It Is largely due to his
energy and enthusiasm the recent Im
provements have been made. The offi
cers are: Dr. G. F. Bovard, president;
