bull two years ago and has two lots

young things are also by a grandson
of Flying Fox, and show all the
touches of refinement, beauty and in

LYNCHING Of WM. POTTER
Eighteen Citizens of McLean
Calhoun, Ky;, May 14. Indict
ments were returned here against
eighteen well known citizens of Mc
Lean county growing out of the
lynching of the negro, William Pot
ter, at Livermore, about three weeks
ago. Three of the indictments
The mob's victim was accused of
having shot and wounded-a white
man, William Mitchell, outside a
poolroom in Livermore. The negro
was arrested immediately after the
tragedy, but shot down while, in the
custody of the officers.
Indignation at the lynching was
freely expressed throughout McLean
county, and despite the prominence
of the men said to have been involv
ed, a grand jury made a thorough
White Plague's Toll.
According to statistics, fifty per
cent, of the deaths in Kentucky dur

nterstate Commerce Commis
sion Hits Telephone Com
panies a Blow.
(TO HAVE UNIFORM CHARGES,
Where Service Rendered is the
Same to all Parties
Washington, May 15. A policy
pursued generally by telephone
companies received a vital blow
when the Interstate Commerce Com
mission, in a decision mads public,
held that "as between subscribers to
a telephone service who are similar
ly situated nothing but a difference
in the service rendered or facilities
furnished can justify difference in
the charges exacted."
The decision, prepared by Com
missioner Harlan, was in the case of
William D. Shoemaker, of Drum
mond, Md , Bgaimt the Chesapeake
& Potomac Telephone Company, the
first telephone case considered by
the commission since Congress placed
telephone companies as common
carriers under the commission's jur
isdiction. Shoemaker declined to sign the
residence telephone contract present
ed because the charge demanded
the regular Washington rates was
materially higher than paid for the
same service by twenty-seven neigh
bors in Drummond, old subscribers
who had contracted with the com
pany when it operated the now aban
doned exchange at Drummond.
The complainant maintained that
the rate was unlawful and discrim
inatory, but did not aver unreason
ableness. The commission upheld
his attitude as "entirely sound." Jt
"The contracts between old sub
scribers and the defendant, even
though valid when made, cannot,
after Congress has undertaken to
regulate the rates and practices of
telephone companies, he accepted as
now 'justifying different charges as
between different subscribers simili
ary situated, such undue discrimina
tion being forbidden by the act."
Curiously, the ordered discontinu
ance of this discrimination will in
crease the company's revenues, as it
necessitates increasing the rates of
the twenty-seven old subscribers to
conform to current rates.
Must be Some Mistake.
