a number of Mexicans were completely
destroyed by llames and the eharred

Blame Boy Operator
Officials of tho company place the
blame on John -Lynes, the 10-yonr-old
operator at Vollan, who failed to stop
No. SO at his station after receiving
orders to hold it there until No. 30' hail
paused. Lynes is being hold by the
authorities at Alma for investigation.

All of tho dead and injured that hud
been taken from the wreck were
brought here where the injured were
placed in the hospital. Two of the
injured Mexicans died on tho way to
Tojioka and Link, the nogro porter, died
at tho hospital shortly afterwards.
When Link was rescued it was necos
ary to tear one of his logs from his body
to extricate him from the wreckago.
Five minutes before the trains
rashod together operators for hundreds
f miles along the line knew tho colli
sion was certain, sh Lynes had wired
trom Vollan that he had" let No. 20 pass,
but thoro was no earthly moans of pro-M-nting
the disaster. At S o'clock to

IS UNDER EI
Southern Business Men Ask the

Charge that New York Cotton
Exchange Has Become a
Purely Gambling Affair
Want Mails Denied Them,
I!y Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, January 2. Charges
of fraud were filed late this afternoon
with Po.st master General Cortelyou
against the officers and nioinbors of the
New York Cotton exchange by Repre
sentative Livingstone of Georgia and
Harvey Jordan, president of tho South
orn Association of Atlanta. In the
charges filed they bnso their request
that the postollice department issue a
fraud order against tho officials and
members of the New York Cotton ex
change in order to bar them 'from tho
use of the United States mails in con
nection with what the charges term
fraudulent, practices. The postmaster
general referred the callers to Judge
Goodwin, assistant attorney general for
the postollice department.
It is Ukely that a hearing on the
charges will be heard by Judgo Good
win before the determination of tjie
question is reached.
What tho Ohargos Are
Tho following is a summary of the
charges presented to Cortelyou:
"We charge that New York has
ceased to be a commercial cotton mnr
kat; that tho New York Cotton ox
change has doveloped into a purely
gambling exchange and that the grades
of cotton shipped to New York cannot
be used for commercial spinning pur
poses, and .such grades of cotton are
used to depress tho jirico of spinnable
grades in the south and to further the
speculative features of the New York
Further charges arc that the ex
change is using the mails in advertising
their business to 4ho legitimate cotton
trade: "Wo charge that said business
is fraudulent and that the officials and
members of the exchange should be
denied the use of the mails. We further
charge that quotations sent out daily
on debased contracts of exchange ex
ercise a predominating influence over
the legitimate cotton trade, to its great
detriment; that the official daily quota
tions sent customers are fraudulent;
that out of the advertised stock of cot
ton at present stored in warehouses in,
New "ork city amounting to 114,000
bales, fully 70,000 bales of said cotton
is of such inferior grades as to render
it unfit for spinning or manufacturing
purpose.'. We therefore ask that you as
post .naster general send a represent!'
tivo to the warehouses to have the cot
ton inspected and graded in order to
olllcially determine its character."
NEW YORK, January 2. Walter C.
Hubbard, president of tho New York
Cotton exehango.vannouneed today that
he has asked Postmaster General Cor
telyou" to send him copies of any com
plaints which might havo.been mado to
him against the New York Cotton ex
change. This action was taken on pub
lication of reports that an application
will be madein behalf of the cotton
growing interests in the south for the
issuance of a fraud o.der against such,
denying the us eof the mails: It was
to have been charged that cotton deliv
ered on contracts and sold on the iloor
of the exchange was not of the grade
called for by tho contracts.

CAR SHORTAGE -l
IS EXPLAINED i:'
Interstate Commerce Commis
sioners Find the Cause But
-Not the Cure Thereof,
BLAME HEAVY TRAFFIC
FOR LACK OF CARS
Find that Retail Coal Dealers
Had Entered into Illegal
Compact to Keep Up PricejoJ
Coal in North Dakota,
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, January 2. The
causes of, but not the cure" for, the car
shortage in the northwest and the con
sequent coal famine in North Dakota
have been determined by tho members
of ho interstato commerce cpmmission
participating in the recent hearings at
Chicago and Minneapolis.
Franklin K. L'ano, chairman of the
investigating committee, today filed a
report with the full commission and
sent it to President Roosevelt, who or
dorcd, tho inquiry. He finds:
"It is a fact drawn from all testi
mony heaid that the real cause of the
coal scarcity in North Dakota was that
there was such an abundance of west
bound traffic at the hoad of tho lakes
that cars wero not available."
Commissioner Lane tays the report
would bo followed in due course by a
special recommendation of tho commit
tee as to legislation deemed advisable.
Referring to the report that the coal
shortage is duo to tho presence of ti
trust or combination" between dealers
in coal which fixed prices in tho north
west and refused to sell to "outsid
ers" and "irregulars," tho report says:
"The commissi6n gained indisputable
proof of an agreement between coal
dealers to maintain price? and boycott
all who did not so agree, but there was
no cvideuco at all justifying the con
tention that this combination is charge
able with the coal shortage prevailing,
nor that tho railroads were a party in
such a way to such a conspiracy."
In considering the evidence taken,
Lane says fnat tho plan for tho pro
posed car clearing house or car pool be
tween connecting lines is regarded witli
much favor. Ho says this plant alono
would not overcome transportation diffi
culties, if the measure merely provided
for the punishment of railroads' for tho
non-placing of cars or tho non-movement
thereof. Summing up the report,
Lane says: "The real cause of tho car
shortage may lie in a too conservative
character of management of the road or
in the unfitness or incompetence of op
The need for additional legislation to
reach the scat of trouble is shown by
the conclusion of the report, where ho
says: "If the interstate commerce
commission is to be vested with power
to make rules under which railroad)
shall be required on a penalty to fur
nish cars to shippers, the commission
should also be empowered to make ruloi
under which the free interchange of
cars shall be made or to require tl.i "
