INTER-STATE COMMERCE: DECISION.
State Carriers May Select tha Route Over
Which They Will Forward.
Washington Citt, April The inter
state join nu'rre decision has decided the
case of Pen net D. Mattingly, tt distiller of
Louisville, Kj., against the Pennsylvania
company, in favor of the defendant. The
Pennsylvania company operats the Jeff ur
sonville, Madison and Indianaolis railway,
and a branch of this road, lying wholly
within the state of Indiana, forms the only
connection at New Albany, Ind., between
the Louisville, Evansville and St, Louis con
solidated railway, and the V uisvillo. New
Albany anl Chicago railway.
Preferred Its Own Bond.
At New Albany the Pennsylvania com
pany received complainant's grain from the
former company, but ref usee to deliver it
to the latter for transports .ion to Louis
ville, preferring to take the freight to that
point over the Jeffersonville, Madison and
Indianapolis, its own road. The pith of the
decision is that while it is tha duty of a
state carrier which engages in interstate
commerce to forward traffic offered from a
connecting line, there is no authority under
the present act to compel the carrier to for
ward the traffic over a route not operate!

Lead Good for Rioters Occasionally
The War Between Man and Master a
Necessity of Human Progress Bal
four's Land Bill I'arnell's Leadership
London, April 26. The Herald publishes
the report of an interview had by one of its
representatives with Prince Bismarck yes
terday. The ex-chancellor said he would
not, if it were in his power, interfere with
the workingmen in any way on May Day;
nor would he display any anxiety, which
only increases the aggressiveness of the agi
tators. Is This for Kaiser Billy's Benefit?
Socialism, he said, would yetcause trouble
in Germany and the man who would yield to
that element to prevent a manifestation was
a coward. It was soma tima an act of bsn
evolence to shed the blood of the riotous in
defense of tha law abiding. May Day was
not a dangerous enemy and the naming of
it for an assault ought not to bs dreaded. It
would only be a shim fight, like the battles
of the Salvation Army.
A New I'rlnciple Asoerted.
ntngonism between employers and em
ployes was a natural law and a necessity of
human progresa. I'rogre-s would cease
should men ever become satisfied. Content
was only possilds either with slavery, as in
Africa, or where munificent nature does not
ask men to work. Ha dwelt upn tha nerd
of combating r!ociiilism,"the victory of
which, he said, would mean government by
the least hitell gent.
More Advice to Wilbelm.
The first requisite iu the government is
energy not to be a time server, nor to sac
rifice the future to a temporary present
convenience. The firmness, indeed, the
fiereene s of the ruling power, is a gutran
tee of ieace at home and abroad. A rov
ernment yielding to the majority and re
taining its aut .ority by concessions, thus
paving the way for further concessions, is in
a sore strait.
LIBERALS AND THE LAND BILL.
All Tore I'p, i It Were Farnell and Ilia
London, April 2.V The Liberals are at
sixes and sevens regarding the government's
land purchase bill, Ulidstone's speech ha v
ing failed to improve their position or to en
courage them to maka a determined fight.
As the matt r now stands the bill is not
likely to meet with any further real opjnv
sition, tnouli it will probably lie subjected
to a number of alterations during its com
mittee stage in respect to its concessions to

Parnell is coming in for a great deal of
hostde criticism among his followers for
springing bis scheme as he did, the concen
sus of opinion being that it was not only in
opportune, but that in failing to take the
Irish pai liamentary party into his con
fidence he displayed a lack of courtesy
ami implied a measure of proprietorship
of the Nationalist membership in the hous
which his colloagilos are disposed to resent,
As a matter of fact this resentment, not
only on the part of the members of his own
party, but upon that of ni.inv of his Liberal
allies, has become so pronounc d that Par

ta, Me., special says: Last year's nhip-build-ing
season in this state showed a great in
crease over previous seasons and this year's
building will probably greatly exceed that
