Washington, Sept. 2. The interstate
commerce commission yesterday, in an
opinion by Commissioner Clements, an
nounced Its decision of the case of the
Omaha Commercial club against tis Chi
cago, Koek Islnnd and l'aciilc K.iilway
company and otherearricrs between Texas
points and Omnha, Kansas City, St. Louis
and other Mississippi river points and
Chi -ago. The main points of the decision
are ns follows: Carriets have no right to
disregard distance and natural advantages
for the purpose of bringing about co:u
men ial equality.
The practice, if lawful, of giving to
Kansas City on shipments from the
west through I'ueblo, Colorado Springs.
Denver and Cheyenne, and from the
northwest through Cheyenne, rates not
higher than on such shipments to
Omaha, furnishes no warrant for giv
ing Omaha rates from Texas points
not hjgher than those to Kansas City,
the circumstances and conditions in
the two eases lieing substantially dis
similar. t'lijust IliserlniiiiKtion ivflned.
Through rates are matters of eon
tract betweon carriers composing
tkrough lines, and the commission has
no power to compel carriers to contract
with each other. Jf. in cases of ship
ment under a through bill of lading
end a through rate, the privilege of
"''V'lTirg in transit" at an intermedi
ate point and trying the market there,
and if it be found unsatisfactory, of re
shipping on to the point of original des
tination at the balance of the through
rate, be lawful, the granting of it to
one locality and denying of it Jo anoth
er under substantially similar circum
stances would be unjust discrimination
against the latter.
Itcgnlate Maxiinnm Kates.
The maximum rates Ix-tween Om.ihn
and Texas points should not bo as high
as those lictwccn Chicago and Texas
points, and should not exceed those lie
tweon Davenport, Uock Island and Molino
mill Texas points, and the rate on syrup
from Omnha should not be in excess of
that from Davenport.

WwshinglHn,-r!eft. 2. Secretary Hoke
Kniith closed his administration of the
affairs of the interior department yes
terday and retired from the cabinet.
The record of the department for
volume of work performed during the
pa.st three and a half years is prob
ably ahead .f any period of its his
tory. Sec retary Smith has enforced the
strictest civil service rules.
In the general land ottice the work ia
now practically up. This has not only
involved a disposition of c urrent work
but a large quantity of accumulated
work which was on hand Marco 6. lv.i:;.
The administration of Indian affairs
has been excellent. Karly in the ad
n. mistrai ion Secretary Smith obtained
the services of a trained educator to
take charge of the school work among
the Indians. The agents have lcen
given wider authority to require the
grown Indians to work wherever it was
posrible to make them do so.
The mo-t important change) in tho pat
ent olliiv during this administration has
la-en the prevention of delay in the prose
cution of appl cations for iiiitciits, which
prior to the i.n-sent administration had
causi-d complaints and soqio scandal. At
the beginning of this administration there

sion c llice undisposed of in the secretary's
ollice. The current work has been kept
up and these accumulated cases disposed
A distinct feature of the administra
tion has been the practice of bringing
the chiefs of divisions into the secre
tary ollice, directly into contact with
the secretary, daily, so that he might
keep in touch with ail the details of

GENERAL STRIKE OF TAILORS.
The Whole World To Be Involved in tho
ireat Walk-Out- .
New York, Sept. 2. Soon after the So
cialist congress adjourned in London tho
leading tailors' unions of the world held
a convention in the same city. Seventeen
delegate's represented Kiiglaud, two Amer
ica, th-?ee France, c ne lSclgium, two
Switzerland, and three Germany. The
reports of tho delegates were to tlie effect
that the condition ut the tailors was
equally bad in all countries, nnd.that the
laws against sweat shoos were not en
forced. The Swiss delegates proposed tluic
a general strike be declared all over the
world, but the consensus of opinion was
that conditions were not ripe for such a
strike, and that the organization of the
tailors must be extended.
All the delegates expressed the opin
ion that the tailors could better their
condition only by going uut on an inter
national strike. It was decided that
the best place for a headquarters for
the proposed strike would be Oermany.
The congress adopted a resolution call
