GETS ANOTHER BLACK EYE.
Interstate Commerce Commission tu
u Bad Way.
Clllc ami, Dec. 8. The recent decisi,:i,
that defendants in cases under the inter
state commerce law could not be forced to
testify when they pleaded that their testi
mony might lie self-incriminating was a
rather paMlyizing blow at the chai-ncy of
the interstate commission in a wry im
portant class of cases; but Judge i'.v sham
yesterday '"swung his right" and it looks
as if the law was knocked out altogether.
Certain business men refused to testily or
to produce the hooks in a case charging
discrimination in freight rales.

court by Agnes A, frump, .Ioh- It,'
Crump and Reginald Crump, appearing by
their father, John ii. Crump, Sr., against
the president aud directors of the St. Liouis
public schools. The plaintiffs allege that
they were refused admittance to the white
public schools by the hoard on the ground
that they were of African descent. The
plaintiffs assert that they are in part
descended from French Creoles and have
Indian blood in their veins, but deny that
they have any African blood whatever and
ask the court to issue a mandamus com
pelling the school board to receive them.
More Mills for Homestead.
PlTTSBt'RG.Dec. 8. A gentleman engaged
in a responsible position at the steel works
at Homestead says that the Carnegie com
pany will remove its Twenty-ninth and
Thirty-third street mills from Pittsburg to
Homestead not later than the first of the
new year. Also that the plans for the ex
tensive buildings that will be necessary are
now in preparation. The grounds which
the two plants now occupy at Lawrence
ville are leased at enormous figures, and it
is to reduce this expense, as well as in keep
ing with the company's alleged future pol
icy of consolidating its varied industries in
a few huKe plants that the new deal is con
templated. General Xettleton's Successor.
Washington, Dec 8 A successor to
General Nettleton, who recently resigned

tra work assigned to them. The matter

tiny and for a little while it looked as if
serious trouble wonld result.
