Will Consider Various Measures Re

Will Take Usuai Course.
(By Associated Press.j
Washington, Jan. 10.-At the opening
of the session of the house today Mr.
Barney of Wisconsin, from the commit
tee on appropriations, reported the pen
elon bill, and gave notice that he would
call It up on Monday after the disposal
of District of Columbia business.
On motion of Mr. Hopkins of Illinois,
the house then went into committee of
the whole and took up the consideration
of the bill to create a permanent cen
sus omce.
Mr. Hopkins spoke at some length in
support of the bill. He was besieged
by members who wanted to know the
status of the present large force of
clerks in the event of the passaie of
the bill. He said that if the bill passed
it was hoped the other departments
could absorb the present temporary
clerks.
They could then he placed under the
protection of the civil service and trans
ferred to other departments. If the bill
were promptly passed, the temporall
clerks by executive order could be made
eligible for transfer.
Several members, among them Mr.
Mann of Illinois, said Mr. Corliss of
Michigan, suggested that the bill be
amended to provide that the clerks be
eligible for transfer.
The house committee on commerce to
day took up the subject of a Pacific
cable. The main question is whether the
cable shall be constructed by itie gov
ernment or by private capital.
The hearing today was devoted to an
explanation by George G. Ward, vice
president of the Commercial Pacific
Cable company of the plans of that or
ganization. He stated that contracts
had been made for the manufacture and
laying of a cable to Honolulu by Novem
ber 1 next, and the company intended to
extend the cable to Honolulu by Novem
years from next November.
Cable Rates to Manila.
The manufacture of the cable was now
proceeding, he said, at the rate of 240
miles per month and this rate would be
increased to 640 miles per month. He
gave the cost of the project as between
$10,000,000 and $12,000,000. The cross
questioning by Chairman Hepburn and
Messrs. Corliss and Mann tended to de
velop the question whether or not the
company by having an exclusive field
would maintain high rates.
Mr. Ward gave the expected rate to
Manila at $1, and Honolulu 35 cents to 50
cents a word. The hearing will continue
tomorrow.
When the house committee on naval
affairs met today for organization, Rep
resentative Rixey of Virginia proposed
that the various measures relating to
Admiral Bchley be considered by the
committee as a whole, instead of await
ing the consideration of a subcommittee.
The sentiment of the committee was
against the propositron, and it was de
termined to allow these measures to take
the usual course. There are ten resolu
tions and bills bearing on the Schley
case and they will be in charge of the
regular sub-committee on organization,
rank and pay, consisting of Representa
tives Watson, Dayton, Cousins, Taylor,
Meyer, Cummins and Wheeler.
OBJECT TO THE PLAY.
Southern Women Ask That "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" Be Played No More.
(By Associated Press.)
Lexington, Ky., Jan. 10.-Lexington
chapter United Daughters of the Confed
eracy, have sent a written petition to
Charles B. Scott, manager of the Lex
ington Opera house, asking that the
play, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," never be
played again at the opera house here.
They give as reasons that the best cit
izens and old families living in and
about the city were once slave owners
as a heritage, not of their own choice;
that the Incidents of "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" are not typical of slave life, in
the South, but of isolated cases; the
production, the play and its being adver
tised with blood hounds and pictures
of an old negro in chains and a slave
owner with whip in hand give a false
Idea of the times to the children of the
city, and disrespect to the Southern
gentlemen and their families in this part
of the country.
The petition is signed by four of the
most prominent women of the chapter
and indorsed unanimously by the mem
bers. It has created a sensation here.

(fay Asso tat'>l Press.)
:targo, N. D., Jan. 10.-Presldent J.
J. Hill addressed the Tri-State Asnocla
ti n of Grain & Cattlegrowers today,
waich has been in session here this
week. The crowd today was very large
aed included farmers and business men
rsm all parts of Minnesota and both
Itikotas, special delegates having come
tday from Duluth and the Twin Cities
t! hear Mr. Hil.
He opened with a few words of praise
fr the farmers, saying that "the future
ilctfare of the country depended more
smton the wise disposition of the public
d¼ main, so as to secure homes for the
"-Ople, than upon any other single con
4ltion in the nation.
Ae discussed the need of action to se
t re more markets for the surplus of
mr products, citing the action oi other
r .ions in that respect. After speaking
r,' the development of the Northwest,
'o said le thought one kind of "coin
unity of interest' which existed was
at between the producer of tonnage

1,'ts and the railroads will either pros

e 'Much is being said about combina

Se law of the survival of the fittest
fist inevitably end such competition
p ,exists by thd destruction of the weak
.m by the stronger. This has already
a done in the East.
.l. said: "Twenty-five years ago, it
ias supposed that competition was nec
wsary to reduce rates. I think that we
'l.ve shown in the Northwest that with

Alter speaking of other sections where
$te are higher, showing the rate re
actions in the Northwest, he said:
"This, more jthan anything else, has
.ambled the price of your lands in a com
'aratjvely few years."
3ave Intes'st fn Welfare.
Lster on he said: "There has recently
neeW all attempt to show that we have
'co interest in the building up of the
prosperity of the people of your state
and of the Northwest. If we did not do
everything in Our power to build up we
would be false to our beqt interests. Our
object in acquiring the Burlington joint
ly with the Northern Paoifio was to in
sure an outlet to the best markets for
the grain; livestock and lumber for the
Northern states aid to increase the vol.
fime of our traffic to the end that we
might "t all times be able to establish
the lowest rates and -lost favorable
conditions under which the traflic must
be carried.
The Burlington, with its own rails,
reaches Chicago, Peoria, Rock Island,
Davenport, Quincy, Alton, Hannibal, St.
Louis, St. Joseph, Kansas City, 1ies
Moines, Omaha and Denver and connects
with the main arteries of traffic of the
whole country,
"Assuming that the line of the flurl
ington had not been constructed and
that the Great Northern and Northern
Pacific jointly had raised the money and
were engaged in the construction of it,
would there te anything to meet the dis
approval of the states traversed by the
line o fthe Great Northern and Northern
Pac!fic?
"On the contrary would not such n
enurse have been halled with approval
as a means of opening tup markets for
Northwestern produce and of renching
markets in the Routh and Southwest and
of securing business, inteenteig the vot
ume of the traffic of the t'rent Northern
and Northern Paciflc, thus making re
duction of rates and adding to thet gen
erai prosperity of the Northwest.
Buys Instead of Building.
"Instead of building lte' flitoriton
uystetn or a line or railroad alongside of
it, the hreat Northern jnd Northern
Pacilic purchased the capital stock of
a line alrc ady constructed. Instead of
Istuing mtttks or bonds for the pur
pose of raiting money for building a line
reaching the same country, bonds were
istued to purchase the stock of a cen
strutcted line."
"The sttck of railroad companies, as
of other corporations, must le held by
sometody and uelccewhere. IRallway com
panies, as carriers, are subject to super
vision and control by the public for the
purpose of insuring the performance of
their obligations to the public. The cap
ital employed in railway construction Is
made public.
Railroads make public through pubtlish
ed rate the price charged for transeporta
tion, the only thing they have to sell,
and must report the amount they reteive
for what they sell and what has been
done with it. Courts are open for the
purpose of determining whether railroad
companies are carriers observe their tbll
gations to the issue.
The question of the reasonabilen'tes of
rates and service does not dep'let upon
whether one man owns the enpittl ttock
of a railroad or another--whether the
capital toeee lt owned by 10 men otr 1000,
by persone oee corporations.

IN SUPREME COURT
WANT JUDGE CLANCY'S SURVEY
ORDER SET ASIDE.
CLAIMED ORDER WAS ILLEGAL
Mr. Shores Claims That the Order
Would Enable Mr. Heinze to Obtain
Information That Could Be
Used Unfairly.
(Speclal to Inter Mountain.)
Helena, Jan. 10.--Arguments are biing
submitted before the supreme court this
afternoon upon the appl ietion of the
A naconda company fur a writ ii' suipir
visory control to cii aside Judge (.'ltn
cy's order permitting the turvey of the
Fairmount, Anaconda and Never Sweat
mines.
A. .1. Shores appeared for th " Ana
condat company in support of the tootton
and J. 1. Mcelat ton represented Mr.
Heinze to whom the survey oriler was
granted, and who, with Judge Clancy, In
named as defendant In the action to w
cure a review of the lower court'Z order.
Mr. Shores in his statement to th courtl
stated that Mr. Ifeinne could toit legally
maintain his application for ita survey of
the Fairmount and other mines as he
has parted title to the F'alrrmount clain.
That the order of Judge Clancy ews
made without warrant of law, ttnd was
applied for by Mr. Hionze In hail fitth
Survey of All the Mines.
One of the principal points rained by
Mr. Shores was that the order was Il
legal, as it practically involved thyt sur
vey of all the big mines in tite( camp.
Mr. Heinze claimed that one small vein
apexed In the Fairmount claim and ratn
through the lines of the Anaconda tmtre,
and on that ground he went into t,- dis
trict court in Silver iow county and e.
cured a sweeping ordsr permitting i hi
survey of nrearly all the big properties
in the camp.
Furthermore, the survey, such .F
granted by the lower court, would work
an injury to the Anaconda company
as it would enable Heinze to obtain
Information about the underground
workings of the Anaconda -and other
mines owned by the same companty that
he might use maliciously.
Many authorities were cited by attor
neys on either side, and the argentcet
upon the legal points involved laated
.several hours.
