He holds that If tho change should be made by an executive order only, it night be considered by many merely an optional change, and would therefore be open to mauy possible difficulties. The Attorney General makes the point that Congress has provided for the hour* of labor in all the executive departments on the basis ol time reckoned from the meridian of Washington, and to make any change or alteration in these hours, such as would be required under tho proposed new time standard, would be an assumption of the prerogative of Congress. It is not likely that final ac tion will he had on this question before the return of Secretary Chandler, who is ex pected In Washington during the present week. can Liability of Bleeping Car Cocnpanl Pittsburg, Nov. 12.— In the Supreme Court to-day the judgment ol the lower court was affirmed lu the suit of Gardner vs. the Pullman Palace Car Company.
