JUDGE GrtcSHAM" OVERRULED.
Important Interot.te Commerce Decision
by the Snpreme Court.
Washington, May 28. An opinion was
delivered in the supreme court of the
United States overruling the famous inter
state commerce decision of Judge Graham
in the circuit court of northern Illinois
two years aco. This case originated in a
complaint that the Illinois Steel comnanv
of bouth Chicago and Joliet had caused
to be incorporated the Calumet and Blue
Island, Chicago and 'Southwestern. Joliet
and blue Island, and Chicago and Kenosha
ranroaus, ana mat tbese roads discrimi
nated in its favor in rates.
lhe interstate commerce commission
proceeded to investigute the matter. Will-
lam U. Hrinson. J. S. Keefe, and V. K.
Stirling were summoned before the com
mission in July, is:c and certain num.
tions were propounded to them which thov
declined to answer. Thev based their re
fusal upon the ground that the questions
were not ouly irrelevant and immaterial
but that section 12 of the interstate com
merce act was unconstitutional and void.
lu tins tliey were upheld by the nreseut
secretary of state.
I he supreme conrt reverses Judce Giesh-
ani's ruling, declares section 13 constitu
tional and gives the commission power
through the courts to compel the attend

The Uerry society investigated the boys'

sky had been trained for a career of crime

vitch had been a schoolboy, but was way
ward. The recorder sentenced IlagoNliy

Denver, May 23. Governor Waite had
called out the whole of the state troops to
suppress the trouble at Cripple Creek,
but the troops were slow in responding.
Iloth the sheriff and the militia here en
dorse the action of the sheriff at Cripple
Creek, and condemn the tone of the gov
ernor's order, which is aimed more against
the sheriff and his posse than against the
striking miners on the ground that the
law of the state prohibits the nse as
members of a sheriff's posse of men from
any other county than the one in which
the posse is to be used. The sheriff at
Cripple Creek, has m his posse men from
wherever he can gt them.
Doesn't Know of Any Trouble.
This Governor Waite says is against the
law aud cannot be tolerated even to en
force an undoubted right. The proclama
tion states that the governor has no per
sonal knowledge of the trouble in the
Cripple Creek region. Some months ago,
however, he was informed of an uprising
in that locality and scut five companies of
militia there to restore order, but the ad
jutant general found no uprising there.
In view of the provisions or the constitu
tion and laws of the stute of Colorado all
good citizens are commanded to lny dowu
their arms and peaceably disperse. Pre
vious to issuiug his proclamation the gov
ernor had declared himself in sympathy
with the strikers.
l'all lt:ek llift Proclamation.
Put the governor concluded to t;ike the
back track and a few hours after issuing
his order for the troops he recalled it. He
spent the iiinht considering the various
phases of the sltunti in and decided that
the law should take its course. The
troops are, however, held in readiness to
move at an hour's notice. This may lie
ort inc to a meeting held at Cripple Creek
by a number .f prominent citizens who
iirced the miners to trv arbitration and
were well received. The meeting lasted
quite awhile and the case was gone over
very thoroughly aud there are hoyt-s of a
