Politics not only makes strange bedfellows among men. but colors the editorial pages oi newspapers after many curious fash ions. The present campaign has wrought some peculiar freaks among the papers of New York. The Sun. which has a remarkaoie record as a political flopper. has turn ed some astonishing flip-flaps in the last three months. Previous to the Democratic national convention the Sun anathematized the Republican ad ministration in its most picturesque style. This attitude was attributed to J. . Moraan. on the theory that he controlled the Sun's editorial page -be cause he had made a large loan to the Sun's publisher, but it may have been due merely to force of habit. The Sun didn t like the platform or the Democratic national convention, especially its evasion of the money issue, and announced that it would support Roosevelt and Fairbanks. It has been doing loyal service for the Republican ticket ever since. The public scarcely nad recoverea from its surprise over this somersault before the Sun sprang another sensa tion by bolting the nomination of Hig- gins. the Republican candidate for governor. This doubtless was intenaea chiefly as a blow at Governor -jaeii, whom the Sun hates. The Sun some years ago had a long and disastrous fieht with the printer s union, ana we governor earned its enmity by pardon ing a convicted union leader. Since then the sun nas pursuea Odell with bitter wrath, and as Hig cins was chosen by Odell that candi date has been marked by the Sun for slaughter in order to punish Odell. The As a health maker. tonic and monthly regula tor, the Bitters will be found un equalled That's why so many women use It to exclusion of other reme It nevnr , fails in cases of ?

The Evening Post offers the specta cle of a newspaper supporting the na tional ticket of a party and taking to the woods on the state ticket. The Post is a rival of the Bun as a flopper. but the Post is ruled by a consistent governing principle nad not by whims or business enmities. It has been against the administra tion because it is against imperialism. a high protective tariff and the reten tion of the Philippines. Consequently it could not support Roosevelt and Fairbanks. In an editorial the Post announced that It could not swallow Herrick, the Democratic nominee for governor, be cause he has been a "common ward and county boss In Albany while sit ting on the bench as one of New York's highest Judges." This cannot be called a bolt, for the Post in no sense is a Democratic paper. It is an independent paper, and there was no rood reason to expect It to support the Democratic state ticket, unless it was above reproach. TheHerald is also an independent pa per and in an editorial attributed to the pen of James Gordon Bennett, it has declared for Alton B. Parker for presi dent as a safer and more sane man thanColonel Roosevelt. Mr. Bennett has not taken a stand yet on the state ticket, and consequently the Herald is on the fence as to state politics. The World, Times and American, be ing Democratic papers, tupport both national and state tickets. The World admits that Herrick, the nominee for governor, Is open to criticism for play ing the part of political boss while sit ting on the bench, but it gets around that criticism by saying: "This objec tion will not exist when he resigns from the bench." The Times speaks of Judge Herrick's work as a local boss as "an improprie ty and a scandal," but as a party organ it swallows scandal and all, though with a wry face. The Tribune and the Press, among the morning papers, and the Globe and the Mail among the evening papers are Republican papers which support the Republican national and state tickets without apalogy or hesitation. WILL BE PAID IX LONDON. Philippine Friars Are Granted Their Recent Request. Washington, Sept. 24.

Pa., Sept. 24. Mrs. Charles W.

In this manner the men will soon be brought to time and will recognize a woman's power." Weekly Bank CIearlii3 New York, Sept. 24.

Final decree In the fruit routing cases has been en tered in the United States circuit court by Judge Wellborn, enjoining and re straining the defendant railway com panies, the Southern. Pacific, Santa Fe and connecting lines from further dis obedience of the orders of the inter state commerce commission. Immediately after i court convened Judge Wellborn announced that the de cree in the case as submitted to him would be entered, if there was no ob jection on the part of the attorneys for the railway companies. E. E. Milliken, on behalf of the de fendant railway companies, objected to the entry of any decree in the ease upon the ground that" Judge Wellborn has no Jurisdiction or authority to make or enter a Judgment therein, for the reason that under the provisions of the act of congress of February 11, 1903, the said proceeding could be heard only before three of the circuit Judge3 of the circuit court of the United States for the ninth Judicial circuit, and de fendants hereby request and pray that this proceeding be assigned for hearing before the circuit judges of the ninth Judicial circuit. Judge Wellborn promptly overruled the objection, saying that the act in question did not apply to cases such as that before the court, but only in such cases where the United States was the plaintiff, and ordered the decree en tered as follows: Issue having been Joined the testi mony having been taken and the cause having been duly argued and submitted and the court being fully advised in the premises now finds that determines, that the allegations of fact made in the bili of complaint herein are true, and that the defendants and their eastern connections, said connections being dif ferent and competing railroads, filed with the interstate commerce commis sion pursuant to a. previous agreement between them, a joint tariff relating to citrus fruits, and fixing thereon a through rate of J1.25 a hundred pounds from Southern California to all points east of the Missouri river, and that said agreement and tariff contain, among others, the following provision: "In guaranteeing the throusht rate named herein, the absolute and un qualified right of routing beyond its own terminal Is reserved to initial car rier giving the guarantee." That said agreement and tariff are now in force and observed by all the parties thereto, and that the said rout ing provision so agreed upon and em bodied in said tariff is an agreement and combination for the pooling of freights of different and competing railroads, and violative of section five of the commerce act mentioned in said bill of complaint, and that the order of the interstate commerce commis sion attached to and made a part of said bill of complaint and hereinafter set forth is a lawful order, and that defendants have ever since its issuance violated and disobeyed the same in all of its requirements. That said order is in words and figures as follows: No. 575 The Consolidated Forwarding company vs. the Southern Pacific com pany, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway company, the Santa Fe Pa cific Railway company, and the South ern Caiiifornia Railway company.

Commissioners Report Is Used. This case being at issue upon com plaint and answers on file, and having been duly heard and submitted by the parties, and the commission having, after due investigation, made and filed a report and opinion herein containing its findings of fact and conclusions thereon, which said report and opinion is hereby referred to and made a part of this order. It is ordered and ad judged that the defendants, the South ern Pacific company, the Atchison, To peka & Santa Fe-Railway company. the banta Fe Pacific Railway com pany and the Southern California Rail way company, be-, and they severally are notified and required wholly to cease and desist, from and after the 20th day of June, 1902, from main taining or enforcing a rule or regula tion whereby shippers of oranges, lem ons or other citrus fruits from points in southern California to points on and east of the Missouri river and other eastern destinations are denied the right of designating for the trans portatlon of their said propetry and having such property transported over any of the defendants established and published joint or continuous lines or routes between any of the aforesaid points of shipping and destination at the published schedule rate or charge applying over such route or line. It is further ordered and adjudged that said defendants, the Southern Pa cific company, the Santa Fe Pacific Railway company and the Southern California Railway company, be, and they severally are hereby notified and required wholly to cease and desist, from and after the 20th day of June, 1902, from failing and refusing, as ini tial carriers, to keep open for the use of the public their published rate or charge for the transportation of or anges, lemons and other citrus fruits, from points in southern California to points on and east of the Missouri river, for and during all of the time such rate or charge msf be lawfu:iy in force, over each and every of the established routes is in their pubkshed joint schedules or tariffs stated u ap ply and from further continuing their present practice whereby the applica tion of such pulMiBhed rate or charge over any of such published established routes when specified by r. chipper for the transportation of his property is allowed to or withheld from such ship per and the property shipped rf him as they, the said defendants, or either of them, may determine. Order to Each Defendant. And it is further ordered that a no tice 'embodying this order be sent forthwith to each of said defendants, together with a copy of the iport and opinion of the commission herein, in conformity with the provisions of tha fifteenth section of the act to regulate commerce. Now, therefore, it is ordered adjudged and decreed that the Southern Pacific company, the Atchison, Topeka SI San ta Fe Railway company, the Santa Fe Pacific Railroad company, sometimes designated as the Santa Fe Pacific Railway company, and the Southern California Railway company, and their officers, agents, employes and servants be. and they hereby severally are. from and after the making and entering of this decree, enjoined and restrained from further continuing any such vio lation or disobedience of said order and requirement of said interstate com merce commission, and they are hereby enjoined and required fully to obey the same in all respects. Wellborn Opposes. Mr. Milliken, of counsel for the rail way companies, asked that an order be entered suspending the operation of the decree for 20 days, pending preparations for an appeal, and Judge Wellborn was about to make the or der when Joseph H. Call, special coun sel for the interstate commerce com mission, said he wished to be heard in opposition to the order. Mr. Call said he wished to call the attention of the court to the fact that this matter had been pending before the court for four years, and that two years ago the Interstate commerce commission had ordered the defend ants to desist from their unlawful practices. This order the railway com panies had treated with silent con tempt. Further, Mr. Call did not think it was good policy to suspend a decree of injunction pending an ap-j read, and Fried .lush, GOOD r n IV i 1 W5 r'' PHONES peal. It was the theory of the law that such an order became "operative at once, and he thought that rule should be observed in this case. "I will only say that such an order is asked in ninety-nine out of a hun dred cases tried before this court," replied Judge Wellborn, "and I see no reason why the same rule should not prevail in this case. The order asked for Is granted. I believe this ends this matter so far as this court is con cerned," continued Judge Wellborn, proceeding with routine business, and the incident closed. -r, Ends First Chapter. Thus ends the first chapter of one of the most important oases ever tried before the United' States court in this jurisdiction. The complainant, the in terstate commerce commission, was represented by L. A. Shaver, its at torney; L. H. Valentine, United States district 'attorney, and Joseph II. Call, special assistant attorney. Defendants, the Southern Pacific companw, were represented by W. F. Herrin, P. F. Dunne, Frank P. Flint and D. Barker, its attorneys and counsel; the Atchi son, Topeka & Santa Fe railway com pany, Santa Fe Pacific railroad com pany and Southern California railway company were represented by Robert Dun lop, T. J. Norton and E. D. Kenna, its solicitors and counsel respectively. tTOEir SMITH COMES. BACK. Replies to Willis Moore's Criticism of Long Distance Weather Prophets. To the Editor of the State Journal: Probably the time will never come when weather topics will not be of interest to someone. I copy from the Chicago Inter-Ocean the following article by Willis Moore, chief of the government weather bureau, on the subject of long distance forecasting of the weather: "Prof. Willis L. Moore, chief of the United States weather bureau, was a guest of Prof. Cox yesterday. In the afternoon he told the members of the Chicago Press club in a little talk that the government . was installing obser vation stations in - the Blue Ridge mountains, which would be equipped with the most modern appliances for exploring the atmosphere, and would result in giving the people a better and more extensive weather forecasting service. Prof. Moore states that quite soon it will be possible for the fore casts to be made for many days in advance instead of for but thirty-six hours as now oDtaina At the weather men's meeting in Peoria, III., this week the chief took occasion to score the long distance weather forecasters most unmercifully. He says their methods are unscien-l tine." As he has no means of know ing what methods they adopt, how can he state that? Of course, the weather bureau has the advantage of unlimited means and the use of tele graphic rapid communication. The barometer, of course, is their great standby to determine what to expect. I have none of these advantages, and if the weather bureau in its scoring has referenc to "Cider" Smith, I have this to say, that the Topeka State Journal, the leading state paper of Kansas, has published my long distance forecasts of the weather for a number of years and sent them out to all Darts of the coun try .and I have yet to hear the first j complaint about them. i Mr. Moore complains that the papers have sent out these forecasts broadcast. Why shouldn't they, if the people want them? The consistency of this talk about unscientific forecast is well illustrated in the article copied above. They1 propose the very system, in effect, that I have had in vogue longer than the life of the weather bureau about thirty years. Weather forecasts are based upon conditions prevailing at or about the time they are made. I make my pre dictions for normal conditions, and depend upon my long experience to have storms and fair weather meet the forecast. L M. SMITH. Vanderbilt Won't Run. New York, Sept. 24.
