Supreme Court Decision.
San Francisco, Judge McKcnna of
United States circuit court Monday
delivered tils long awaited decision in
the Important case of the Nothern
Pacific company against the state
board of railroad commissioners In
volving the right or the commission
to restrict freight rates over the com
panies lines in this state. Each side
claims a victory in thedecislon, which
concedes the right of the commission
to make reduction In rates but makes
a permanent injunction against the
commissioners, restraining them from
making eight per cent reduction In
grain rates, on the ground that the
proiltsof, the Southern Pacltlc did not
Justify that cut in the rates.
On the question, raised by the
Southern Pacltlc, that two of the com
missioners were ineligible to reduce
rates, Judge McKenna decided that
candidates had a right to profits of
the Southern Pacific did not constl-

Not Likely to Dispose ofVMuch
Washington, Dec J. It is not
probable that the house, at the coming
session of congress, which begins a
week from today, can dispose of much
of the proposed legislation which en
cumbers Jts calendars. Little is
usually accomplished at the short
session beyond the passage of the reg
ular supply bills. Still, the house,
with Its instrumentalities for the, ex
pedition of business, can accomplish
a great deal 1p a brief time.
The question of additional revenues
for the government will depend on the
senate, to which body the house sent
the DInglcy bill almost a year ago.
Should It be impossible, or to to
deemed inexpedient to pres that
measure tlnough the senate, there Is
of course a possibility 'that-the pro
posal to increase the revenues by an
additional tax on beer or the imposi
tion of a duty on tea, coffee, etc.,
may take tangible form and, If so, such
legislation must originate, under the
constitution, in the lower branch of
The power lodged in the hands of
the committee on rules, whish gives
the members of that committee con
trol of the house programme, will
make that committee the practical
arbitrator of what shall be submitted
to the house for Its action. That com
mittee is composed at present of the
speaker, Henderson of Iowa, Daizcll
of Pennsylvania and MoMillln of Ten
nessee. The death of ex-Speaker
Crisp cieates a vacancy at the head of
minority of the committee, which
must bo tilled by the speaker. The
mimes pi inclpally mentioned In con
nection with the vacancy are Bailey
of Texas, Catchings of Mississippi,
Turner of Georgia, Richardson of
Tennessee, and Dockcry of Missouri.
The bill, wlilcn, in many respects
Is fraught this time with most inter
est, and which will press hardest for
consideration is the Pacific railroad
funding bill. The bonds guaranteed
by the government are payable early
in the coming year, and either an ex
tension or a foreclosure stares the
roads In the face. For eight years,
funding bills have occupied a good
share of the attention of congress.
The present bill, of which Mr. Powers
of Vermont is the author, was re
ported shortly before the close of the
lust session. Everything will be done
by those Interested in it to secure
The friends of the Nicaragua -canal
are also bending every energyito se
cure action on the bill reported by Mr.
Doollttle, which provides for a guar
antee by the United States of $100,
000,000 of bonds for the construction
of the canal.
The Loud bill, to cure the abuses of
the law relating to uecond-class mall
matter, of which newspaper matter Is
transmitted at 1 cent per pound, and
which has been the subject of much
criticism by the post ofllco department
because of the advantage taken of the
law In various ways for the transmis
sion of books and pamphlets, will also
be pressed, as will be the Picklcr ser
vice pension bill, which occupies a fa
vorable position on the calendar us a
Among the other Important bills are
the "Wadsworth bill, for the creation
or a bureau of animal industry for the
Inspection of meats and the regula
tion of the transportation of live

feasibility and coat of a ship canal

and many others of special Interest to

Stock Suffered As Well As the

blizzard has been meagre. So far as
learned only live Jived have been lost,
Nothing has yet been heard from the
districts beyond the reach of tele

before It can be positively stated that
there has been more serious loss of
life. The -st rents' of snowbound Da
kota towns are beMng cleared as rap
idly as possible. The extremely cold
weather has frozen tho snow until the
Immense drifts have reached the pro

Views On the Late Election
Bimetallism From the Republican
Washington, Dec. 1. Tho Post,
In a cable letter from London, prints
an advance copy of an Important artl-
clo written by Hon. William E. Chan
dler, senator from New Hampshire,
for tho December IssUo of the Na
tional Review, tho conservative
monthly, in which he discusses the
late election from tho Republican
standpoint. Ills principal object Is to
encourage European blmetalllsts to
Tho Review, commenting editori
ally upon the election of Major Mc
Klnley, dogmatically asserts that,
"unless the Republican party settles
tho sliver question before 1000, thcro
will be nothing left of the party after
Senator Chandelier's article Is as
'European Mmetallsts need not be
llevo that the selection of McKlnloy
and Hobart by overwhelming majori
ties Is a decision to permanently
accede to tho single gold standard.
The Bryan proposition was soon seen
by tho American voters to bo simply
that the United States should accopt
silver monomctallsm, should glv) up
all attempts to keep gold and silver at
a parity, should send gold to a prem
ium and thereby make It merchan
dise mcrely,and should baso all Amer
ican prices upon silver only. It can
hardly be considered, upon reflection,
by any true bimctallst, that such
action on our part weuld have helped
the cause of blmetallsm In any coun
try lu tho world.
"A majority or tho people wish for
a more energetic foreign policy than
they believe will como from any Dem
ocratic administration. They are
deeply affected by tho lamentable
condition the Christian subjects of
the Turkish empire. Tfioy mean to
annex Hawaii. They desire to seo
Venezuela allowed to retain her right
ful solo dominionlover the mouth of
tho Orinoco. They are intensely
anxious to see arrested tho atrocities
lu Cuba, and to aid in making the is
land free and Independent.
"But none of tho foregoing reasons,
not even tho one concerning the
national honor in connection with tho
currency, influenced so many voters
against Bryan as did the determina
tion of tho American people ta plainly
vindicate and firmly establish the
principle of protection to American
Industry by adequate tariff duties on
"That the United States is opposed
to tho single gold standard, and Is la
favor of retracing,-in due course and
with careful regard to the national
honor, tho steps taken in the demone
tization of silver, until gold add silver
shall be admitted to free coinage at
the ratio of 151 to I, and made tho
standard money of tho world and the
measure of values of the world, Is a
proposition which would receive the
suffrages of four-fifths of our voters,lf
this proposition alone could be fairly
presented to them, even without fur
a vast majority of American voters
committed to bimetallism, tho friends
of such a inonometury system may
confidently appeal. The question Is
not one for four years, nor for a de
cade. It may take as long to remone
tlze sliver as It has taken to realize
the paralyzing Influence of demone
tization. But the fact that 0,000,000
out of the 13,000,000 of American vo
ters have given their ballots for the
wild nroicctof Immediate free coinage
by the united States alone shows that
ilia question is one which must oe
compromised and adjusted In some
way. Tho advocates of gold monome
tallism are crying out that tho silver
question Is dead. They hope, but not
really bcllevc.that this Is true. Never
was It moro important for blmetalllsts
to exert themselves. Mr, McKlnley Is
pledged by his own word to co
operate with u,s,"
