WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—The great
I&rrtman merger, created when the
Tnion Pacific Railroad company bought
6 per cent of the stock of the Southern
system, was split asunder today
-y the Supreme Court of the United
"tates as a violation of the Sherman
mtl-trust law.
Then, with the end of the merger be

entous declaration that "while the law

t can reach combinations which render
ompetition impracticable."
Justice Day announced the unanimous

hase, was reversed and annulled.
„ay Keep Central Line
Instead of following the reasoning of
uj-tioe Vandevanter and Judges San
mrn and Adams, the court in substance
ipproved the minority holding of Judge
look that the roads were competitors
m.l that it was just as much a viola
ion of the law for one road to buy the
'ontrolling stock of a competitor as it
vas for a holding company, as in the
■Crvrthern Securities case, to buy the
ontrolling stock of two competing com
>anies.
As the Northern Securities company
• lan failed nearly 10 years ago, so the
larriman plan fell today.
The circuit court for the district of
*"tah*was directed to supervise the **ep
iration of the two roads after hearings,
md in emergency to appoint a receiver
o sell the sto*k. The Union Pacific, if

The decision of the lower court that
here was rro violation of the law in the

TEST SHOWS FISH
WORMS CAN THINK
Harvard Professor Using Tn>o
. Dark Holes in Dish and Bat

Special Dispatch to The Cal!
BOSTON, Dec. 2.-—From a series of
experiments conducted by Professor
Yerk<- sycnologi.-al department
of Harvard- the professor has become
convinced that an angle worm can
think.
Knowing that an angle worm will al
ways crawl out of a lighted place into
a dark one, the professor put the worm
which he was experimenting upon Into
a glass dish into which were two dark
holes. The right hand hole was merely
a regular earth cavity. The left hand
hole contained a mildly charged electric
battery, the object of which was to give
the worm a shock in case he should de
sire to "poke himself into it.
At last reports the worm had learned
his lesson well and was continually go
ing to the right when he was put into
the glass dish.

GEORGE T. HILL
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—The shadow
of death hung over the senate when it
convened at noon to begin the final
session of the present congress. In re
spect to the memory of Vice President
Sherman, Senator Rayner and Senator
J.eybur_, all of whom died during the
brief recess, adjournment was taken
almost immediately after Senator Ba
con, the presiding officer, called the
chamber to order.
The session lasted only 20 minutes.
Sixty-six senators responded to the
rollcall. Brief tribute was paid to the
late vice president by Senator Root,
who made reference to his "serene and
cheerful temperament" and his just
decisions. Senator Borah and Senator
Smith of Maryland announced the
death of their colleagues and the brief
meeting came to an end.
Air of Friendliness
But the usual incidents at the opening
of a congressional session were not j
lacking.. Despite the air of mourning
that prevailed in the senate itself there 1
was a degree of friendliness not ap
parent, at least, before the campaign,
and when the preceding session was
brought to a close with a final outburst
of dissension and strife.
Senator Root beamed as he shook
hands with Senator O'Gorman. Senator
Cullom, republican, made it a point to
go over and welcome Senator Martin,
the nominal democratic leader. Sena
tor Gallagher, against whom the. In
surgent republicans directed their bit
terest attacks, shook hands with Sena
tor La Follette warmly. During this
demonstration of lnuried animosities
and good feeding the crowded galleries
had opportunities to satisfy their curi
osity.
Clark Stills Ovation
Giving the sounding boafd on his
table a resounding thump. Speaker
Clark called a noisy house to order at
noon today and stilled a great ovation
| which had been accorded him when he
entered the chamber.
The floor was crowded with, inci
dents, consisting chiefly of demonstra
tions for members who had achieved
success at the polls, but including one
remarkable ovation for Uncle Joe Can
non, a veteran legislator, who went
down to defeat.
Bill Sulzer entered the chamber at
an opportune moment—just as the
prayer of the chaplain was concluded
—and his auburn locks were ruffled as
he bowed to the greetings of approv-

KICK IS TAKEN
OUT OF KICKERS
Edward Rainey, the Mayor's
Secretary, Is the Guy That
Performed the Operation
"I'm the guy that took the kick out
of the 'kickers.' "
So saying, Edward Hainey, Mayor
Rolph's secretary, with Vie representa
tives of the pressr took his hat and left
'• the deserted courtroom, into which not
a single "kicker" wandered last night
to attend the regular M*or»day night
"kickers' party."
"Mayor Rolph has turned them into
boosters, I guess," Rainey remarked,
with a wistfull expression on his face.
Perhaps he rather liked the Idea of sit

assortment of complaints from a varied
assortment of persons.
Aftyway, there 1s a dearth .of kickers

"All the News All the Time"
Germany Blocks Russo-Servian Collusion
Warns Bear Claws Off Dual Kingdom
BERLIN, Dec. 2.—lmperial Chancellor Bethmann-Hollweg today ut
tered a plain warning to Russia that In ease hostilities should arise out
of tbe.Austro-Servian difficulties Germany would draw her sword to as
sist her ally.
The imperial chancellor made this declaration in the course of a
•speech in the reichstag discussing the Balkan situation. It was a repe
tition of the statement made at the time of the controversy over the
question of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 190?, which then caused an im
mense sensation in the European capitals. Although at that period it
first threatened to sweep away the* paciflc Russian cabinet, the cur
rent of feeling aroused among the Slavs ultimately brought peace.
Doctor yon Bethmann-Hollweg, after summarizing the efforts of the
great powers, in the first place, to delay the outbreak in tha Balkans
and, later on, when war was found to be Inevitable, to localize hostili
ties, passed on to the question of the interests of the great powers di
rectly affected by the final settlement.

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2.—Beneath a
scorching sun on the American desert,
John H. Gallup of Denver and his com
panion. W. L Miller, according to their
sto>y, last week came across first a
yellow uTmbrella, then a small package
of paints and then, under the umbrella,
a man* He was Bob Chanler, cow
ptmsher and Indian fighter, but more
recently the husband of Lina Cavalleri,
one of the most beautiful women In the

sunset shades of the great American
desert nor the prismatic effects In the
canyons far away, but the lovely face
of Lina Cavalier!, his former million
dollar wife. Before him he had a mam
moth easel and under the yellow um
brella a stock *of paints. On the canvas
were the first tracings of the head of
the famous 'Lina" and the bare outlines
of her beautiful neck."
Gallup said that as Chanler sat be
fore the easel the wonderful colors of
the desert apparently seemed lost on
him and his eyes seemed riveted In a
faraway gaze to the horizon beyond
which lay Paris and Cavalierl.
"We just stopped to say 'howdy,'"
added Gallup, but as we drew out of
sight SheriiX Bob was still gazing
longingly at the picture before him."

IRON BOWSPRIT
OF LINER SWEPT
AWAY IN STORM
Heavy Sea Deluges State
room Occupied by Miss
Katy Daugherty, San
Francisco Singer
Special Dispatch to Tbe Call
NEW YORK, Dec. 2—Three liners
incoming from Europe all report very
heavy weather during the entire voy
age across the , Atlantic. These ships
were the Cunarder Carmanla, the An
chor liner Cameronia and the New
York of the American line. All came
into port this morning bearing marks
of the ocean's buffetings, the New York,
inbound from Southampton, being the
worst damaged of the three.
The New York Is one of the few
Steamships fitted with figurehead trap
pings, which were worn by every ship
in the old days when steam was young
and America supreme on the ocean.
The New York's bowsprit is—or, rather,
was—an Iron cylinder 25 feet long,
tapering outward. About noon last
Friday, at the height of what every
tar on board declared was a "genuine
hurricane with an 80 knot breeze." a
giant wave snapped the iron tube about
10 feet from the bow as cleanly as it
could have been done with a saw.
the same time that the bow- )
sprit was lost a larger wave rolled
aboard over the starboard bow, raked
the vesfsel fore and aft, stove in three
lifeboats and damaged three life rafts
on the port side near the stern. The
passengers were In a panic. *
The following day the waives became
so huge that the ship ran under reduced
speed for 15 hours. On this day also a
comber swept through the port hole of i
tbe stateroom on the port side occupied
by Miss Katy Daugherty, a singer of
San Francisco; Mrs. J. W. Cotton and
the latter's 6 months* old child. The
two women thought the ship was going
down and they waded out of the sub
merged cabin, holding the infant high

her haste Miss Daugherty slipped and

PAUL LAMBETH
Special Cable to The Call
LONDON, Dec. 2.—-The one salient
feature of the Balkan situation today
was the statement of Chancellor Beth
mann-Hollweg to the effect that Ger
many was back of Austria-Hungary,
and that any attempt to deprive the
"dual kingdom" of justice meant war
with the Balkan nations, with Ger
many backing Franz Josef to the liniit.
It may be known in cabinet circles
Just what has called forth this decla
ration of the German chancellor at
this time, but that it has made a dis
tinctly bad impression is not to be
gainsaid. ,
Ultimate War Seems Certain
As It has been pointed out in these
dispatches, there is an element in of
ficial circles in all the capitals which
regards war ultimately as certain and
which believes that this is as favorable
a time as any to fight out the issues
which have made and kept Europe an
armed camp and thus bring about a
condition which would bring the dream
of general disarmament and universal
international arbitration within the
realm of practical politics.
While the price of a general European
war at this time would be enormous in
both treasure and blood, this element is
inclined to the belief that the results
which would follow such a struggle
would be worth the sacrifice, particu
larly as they hold that at some time in
the future war is bound to come.
Germany Ready for Strife
The renewal of the triple alliance, an
nounced today coincidentally with Beth
mann-Hollweg-s utterance, leads to the
belief that Germany has decided that
this time is as good a_» any for war to
come. Germany thinks It Is better pre
pared for war than any other nation,
and has supreme confidence In Its abil
ity to hold its own against all Europe,
if necessary.
All reports point to the beginning of
the armistice between Turkey and the
allies tomorrow and the assembling of
the peace envoys, probably in Switzer
land, where the terms of a treaty ter
minating the war will be thrashed out,
although the differences between Servia
and Austria apparently are no nearer a.
