'The a long and short olause of the interstate com- d oerce law is construed by the oommission in the light of more than five years' opera tion of the law and decisions heretofore ren dered by the commission and courts. Many q of the points decided are as follows: d The phrase "common control, manage- o ment or arrangement for the continuous p carriage of shipment," in the first section of the not to regulate commerce, was in*- r, tended to cover all interstate traffic carried p through over all rail or part water and part h rail lines. The receipt sucoessively of two or more carriers of transportation of traf- a tic shipped under through bills for contin- } uous carriage over their lines is easent to a 3 common arrangement for such continuous e carriage, and previous fo mal arrange ment between them is not necessary to bring such transportation under the terms of the law. The total Tate for through carriage over two or more lines, whether made by the addition of es- e tablished locals or of through and local rates, or upon a lose proportionate basis, is the through rate that is subject to som tiny by the regulation authority. The J fourth section of the sot is construed ac- t cording to the principles laid down in the 1 case of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad t company, in the I. Corn. rep. 278 and 31 1 rep. 31, are reaffirmed, except the ruling t therein, whereby carrie a were permitted t to judge for themselves in the first t instance of what constitutes rare and t peculiar uses of competition between rail- a roads which are subject to the statute, t when n strict application of the general rule of the statute would be destructive of legitimate competition, which is overruled. The competition of carriessubject to the nat to regulate commerce does not create 1 cironmotnOicea and conditious which the carriers can take into account in determin ing for themselves whether tih y are justi fied, under the fourth section. in ( charging more for shorter than for ( longer distances over their lines.

Commissioner Lyman Advises Them Not to 1ush to Washington. WAsemrrnrorq, Nov. 17.-It pleases the re publicans to make the assertion that in the next few months there will be the greatest rush of ofilce seekers to Washington the country has ever known. Civil Hervice Commissioner Lyman is of opinion that, if there is such a rush, a vast number of those partloipating in it will return home with a fine stock of disappointment. Mr. Lyman was a member of the civil service commission under Mr. Cleveland's administration, and got a good idea of the president-elect's views on the subject of office seeking. He said to-day that he be lieved Mr. Cleveland would respect to the fullest extent the letter and the spirit of the civii service law. It would undoubt edly save some persons much vexation of spirit if they were to regard Mr. Lytan's opinion in the light of personal advice. Within the past three days each bead of a department has been fairly besieged by employes who were not appointed under the civil service law to be taken into the alaesi fled service in some way in order to afford them protection. It is said these employee are very much alarmed, as they fear that the coming administration will pursue a more aggressive policy than Mr. Cleveland did during his former tenure of office. Money for the Navy. WAsmRoTroN, Nov. 17.-Commodore Far qubar, chief of the bureau of yards and docks, in his annual report to the secretary of the navy, expresses a regret that the ap pro riations for the maintenance of navy yards and stations was so limited that it had not been possible to keep pace in the repal's with the deterioration. The great permanent improvements have been made, however, in the yards. Stress is laid upon the necessity of an increase in the estimates for yards and and stations: Boston, $127,500; New York, $193,u00; Leagne Island, 1'a., $338, 396; Haehineton, D. C., $55,193; Norfolk. Vs., $103,000; More Island. Cal., $237,938; Kay West, Fla., $50,000; Port Royal, S. C., $10,243; Puget sound, Waeh.. $37,000. Epidemic in a Quarantined Ship. WAsareoToN, Nov. 17.-The Bremen steamship Weimar is the source of consid erable trouble to the officials of the treas ury department. This vessel is under de tention at the national quarantine at Cape Charles with 1,700 immigrants on board. 'They are refused the privilege of landing because the federal authorities at Washing ington are satisfied that they were brought to this country in clear violation of the president's order of Sept. 1, in the hope that they would be able to avoiu its restric tions. The detention is now complicated by the fact that measles have broken out on the vessel and are likely to spread among all the children unless they can be removed to a place of safely.

Phelps, of Vermont TalkeId of for the Ihtate Department--VolItiles News and Gossip. NEw Your, Nov. 17.-There has been a great deal of gossip about the formation of Mr. Cleveland'p cabinet and the distdi bution of the biggest federal plums that I will be at the new president's disposal after the 4th of March. In making up his cabi nit President Cleveland will not have as easy a task as he had eight years ago. The democratic party has extended its territory since then, and codmequently there are more statesmen seeking and deserving rec ognition at the hands of the chief execu tive. 'The department of agriculture has been added to the list of cabinet portfolios since Mr. Cleveland's former occupancy of the White house; henoa Ie will have one more place to bestow than he had four years ago. ]ut the amount of available cabinet timber has increased very mate rially in the democratic ranks during the last few years. It is generally conceded that Mr. Whitney could be secretary of state should he wish to be. His services to the party in the judg ment of the democratic statesmen fully en title him to that honor. But close friends of Mr. Whitney say that he has no desire to go into the cabinet, and that he will not en tertain the matter. Friends of Mr. Cleve land shy the president may insist noon Mr. Whitney taking the portfolio of state. Next to Mr. Whitney the man most prom inently mentioned for secretary of state is Edward J. Phelps, of Vermont. Mr. Phelps was minister to England under Mr. Cleve land, and he has occupied a chair in the faculty at Yale university for the last three years. Probably Mr. Phelps would now be aceredited to the state of Connectiout,which would be better, if he is to go into the cabi net, in the opinion of ninny democrats. Oh jection might be raised to Mr. Cleveland's taking his premier from a hopelessly repub lican state like Vermont. The cabinet makera assume rann rress dent Cleveland will pay some attention to geographical lines in the formation of his t cabinet. It is not believed that New York will now get two cabinet plums, as she did eight years ago. In his first cabinet Mr. Cleveland gave three portfolios to the south, Bayard, Lamar and Garland; two to New York, Manning and Whitney; one to the west, William F. Vilna, and one to New England, William C. Endioott. When Mr. Lamar was elevated to the supreme bench the west secured another rep-esentative in r the cabinet in the person of Don M. Dickin son, of Michigan. The people who are arranging Mr. Cleve land's cabinet for him this year think it is t likely to be apportioned oif as follows: Three to the western or middle states, in recoanition of their growing tendency to wards democracy; two to the south, one to New York, one to New England and one to Pennsylvania or New Jersey. The Pacific coast is not likely to have a representative. New York's member of the cabinet is a matter of considerable speculation. By E common consent New York seems to have I been assigned the treasury portfolio. Ex Secretary Fairchild has been mentioned in connection with the place, but it is also said that no member of Mr. Cleveland's I former cabinet will be reappointed. It is conceded that both Mr. Whitney and Mr. Dickinson could go back to the cabinet if they desired, but the fact that each has allowed it to be known that he did not ex pact to be in the cabinet is taken to indi- I eate that the cabinet will be made up of entirely new material. Mr. Whitney, it is said, may go as minis ter to the court of St. James, and Mr. Dickinirou is also believed to be slated for an important foreign appointment. Here are some of the gentlemen who are believed to be in danger of bring hit by cabinet lightning: Smith M. Weed, New York; Senator John R. McPhorson, Now Jersey; Henry Villerd, New York: Williai F. Harrity, Pennsylvania: James E. Camp bell, Ohio; William E. Russell, Meesinobu setts; Benj. It. Cable, Illinois; lnsac 1'. Gray. Indiana; James I). Porter, Tenneser; - H. A. Herbert, Alabama; David 1%. Francis, Missouri, and Edward J. Phelps, Vermont. ANOTHER CHAIRMAN. Sprinrger Said to Ile tunsatisfactory to Mr. Clevelinds. WAsHTNGTON, Nov. 17.-The special corre spondent of the St. Paul Pioneer P can telegraphs to that paper the following: It is believed that Willian M. Springer, of Illinois, will be displaced lie chairman of the committee on ways aid means when the Fifty-third congress is organized. Mr. Springer, in the liret tirers, virtually op posed the nomination of Mr. Cleveland for the presidency. and those who know the preeident-elect know that lie is not a loan to stand idly by and see a personal enemy placed iii a 1ositionr which will hiulg utri self in contact with that person frelquently and intimontely. In the second place AMr. Springer believes in revis ing the tariil by specilie bills, while the president-elect rod Mr. Crisp favor a general measure. It is not uniikely that Mr. McMillin, of Ten lirn'ei, who has been a prominent fcrtor on ways and mens for momny years. and who is in direct lune with Mr. Cleveland upon the subject of tariff re vision, will be chairman of ways and means r if Springer is dtisplaced. During the lapt session of congress eliepresentatives Herd, of Missouri, Bytum, of Indiana, and other prominent deouoer ate stated to the Pioneer Press correspondent that Mr. Crisp had as sured them that in the event of his re-elec tion as speaker he would nottunder any con dition of circumstances place Mr. liolman, of Indiane, at the head of the committee I on appropriations, as lie had disgusted - democrats as well as republieans by his nu ibusinceslike manaiement of appropria - tions and become so unpopular that he could not carry lis partisan points ois the tfloor. Mr. Springer was for many years an influential member of approprrations. ren - daring satisfaction to his party, slid it is believed that he will be tiansferred from the ways and means to the head of the ap proprirtions.

George 1. a Miller, the veteran demooratic editor of this city, was asked to-day about bin con naction with a repo ted deal by which Utab, W oming and Idaho had been swung into democratic column. The doctor wis not inclined to talk but finally ad nitted that the promise of statehood may have had somuething to do with the result in Utah. In former years, when Dr. Mil ler wiis in charge of western democratic politics, frequent attempts were made to 1 enlist the support of the Mormon chorch in a aid of the democratic enecess. but the time had not vet arrived for the consummation of the recent trade, by which the Mormons were paoanised statehood for Utah in ex change for support, in said by a close polit ical friend of Dr. Miller's to have been brought aboua thronah the doctor's efforts. Senator Vest's Plan. KANsAS CITy, Nov. 17.-Senator Vest says the democrats will proceed cautiously in reforming the tariff, and not smash the McKinley law as a blacksmith would de stroy a watch. Free trade, pure and sim ple, he said, was impossible, for the only proper way to raise money to carry on the government was by a customs tariff. lie ridiculed the idea of an extra session of congress to deal with the tariff. "Cleve land," he said, "is too level headed for any such nonsense. He does not believe in a cavalry charge unon the existing system of taxation, and will proceed slowly." Mrs. Lease for Senator. ToErKA, Kan., Nov. 17.-The opinion ex ists here that stranger things might happen than the election of Mrs. Mary E. Lease as United States senator from Kansas. Mrs. Lease's candidacy for the sonate has be come a serious reality. She is fixing wires for the place and her popularity with the rank and file of the party will give her at li-ast an equal chance with other aspirants, espcially as there seems to be no constitu tional disqualilication.
