In site of the brd r going he pulled oft "stuutt" yesterday afternoon that 'wll. ill stand as a record here for some time ra to come. His stroll came as the re-. a suiat of a bet made at the store, Harry Jones and Bob Niobol offerling to gr wager $1S that lee, eoilda't iwil' to tip the H. Platt ranch above laeepin vi Child and back in five hours. W. R. -0nes didn't,kpow where the Platt BI ranch was, but he had blhis booke in 'fine hpe and needed a little exer- Iti olse, so be pulled on his cap, over- le shoes, and gloves and steamed oftt' in the" direction of Darby, Different ranches along the route were conmmuh icated with and advised to note-the time he passed. It was Just 11 p.ln- M utes from the time he left the -store ti when word came from the Harry at Jones home that he had covered the Jc first mile of hise ourney: The George .n Reed ranch was next heard from, and G a glatee at the clock sholaed that he be had reeled oft 4.25 miles In 41 minm' s atem. Just as the last minute of the itl hour was ticked off the Leavitt home on Sleeping Ch11d was heard from and the fmuprying Jones was then six miles alimo his route. He was not beard from agan mttlILt. Platt phoned that H he 1td dropped' anchor at his place, R the 1lstance of 10 miles having bien R covered in one hour and 60 mnutes. vi The walker took a 10-minute rest at vt the Platt home and then headed down m the valley. During the IO-minUte rest t two grocery mnen in Hamiltoa felt at themselves slipping, as Jones had three e, hours of the daloted five in which to make the return trip. In Just I hours and 10 minutes from the time he left the Platt ranch Jones was back at his desk richer by $15. His trip of B 20 miles had been covered in exactly cl four hours of actual walking time, a record that is remarkable considering e, the thot that the snow 1les in drifts t across the road in places whleh made oa the golng unusually hard. The winner of the wager now bobs ab up, a walker, and' runner of note p acrot. the Canadian border, where he has a record of eight miles an hour on . snow rpath.

COUMRT Washington, Jan. 9.*-The grip of the in$erstate commerce oommisalon over the commeroe of the country was tightened today by a series of deci sloneiby the suprame court. The prin ciple was laid down that shippers sut (ering from ,civil Injuries from rail roada must go to the commislon before rushingl to the courts for relief. '`Th .iaramdunt authority of the commlssion in reasonable rate-making waes upheld by the court's decision that the federal district court of Minnesota was wri.'t in Preventing the enforce ment of the commission's reduced rates on lumber from the Pacific coast, Oregon and Mobtana points to at. Paul Omaha and Chicago. The legidlative field touching the ac ceptance of goods by railroads for In terstate shipment was marked forever as federal territory and states were warned to keep off. The sup'rmacy over state laws of similar Import of the federal "hours of-service" law, the enforcement at which is confided to the commission, was upheld. The tight over the lumber rates had been the most bxhaustive. The com mission's rates eradicated substdntially all the increase in rates from the northwest, propoeed by the railroads in 1908. After a long consideration of the attack upon the commleslon's or der, Justice Lamar concluded that the court could not say the order was made because of the effect of the ad vance in lumber. Industry, as aug. gested by the railroads, nor that there was no evidence to support the com mission's rates. The court laid down the principle that railroad dividends were not to be a solo basis for judgging the reason ableness of rates, but that conditiond as a whole were to be taken into con sideration. The fact that the conimls slon allowed a higher rate to Omaha than to St. Paul was said to be justified by previous rate distinctions between the cities by the railroads themselves. The validity of the Hepburn rate law was not Involved. Much attention was attracted to Justice ijbKenna's opinion annulling the North Carollna law which requirei rallrokds 'tU'.booelve rd6ds for Inter state transportation whether they had published rates for the proposed ship lent4j op ti.t.

Manifestly one authority must be paramount and when it speaks, the other must be silent." He silenced the state law.
