r T & MA. DECLARES THAT
PBLIC AT'ND RtAILWAYB HAVE BURIED THE 01ATCHIT The railroads and the public have buried the hatchet. 'That is the state ment of an eastern man, once of the Weet, who sees in the recent action of, the interstate commerce commis sion granting an increase of rates to eastern roads, evidence that the war is over. He views it from the eastern viewpoint. In the west the holiday season is also a truce season. The railway war is off for a few days. When the holi days have passed the railway com missions of the west will resume their preparations for the fight against an increase of rates in the west. The board of arbitration, considering en ginemen's claims for a new and more costly schedule to the railroads, has adjourned its hearing until January 4. Several legislatures will meet on or about that date. The handle of the hatchet is plain ly visible above the ground in the west, but the fight against the rail roads in the west is not so strenuous as it once was. One man interested deeply in the fight against an increase in rates in the west, says: '"The difference comparing the pres ent with the past, is that there is nothing rabid, no unreasoning opposi tion, in the west to the railroads. The fight against higher rates will be fought out from the evidence obtain able. If the railroads can show that they are entitled to higher rates there will be no bitterness. Really it is not a fight against the railroads, although some railroad men choose to call it a war. It is an effort to find out just where the railroads are at in relation to their patrons, to the service they give to their patrons and the pay for service that they collect. If we can show that present rates are reason ably high, that the service offered is worth no more than what the people pay; that the transcontinental trains are being run at a loss which the roads are trying to ,make up from local travel; that earnings that should have been returned to stockholders or the patrons, have been put into per manent improvements and new c,.n struction and that the roads are ask ing that they be permitted to pay div idends on past earnings with higher rates then we will insist that rates should not be increased." "HOLY 'ROLLERS" LET DAUGHTFR DIE IN PAIN Murphysboro, Ill., Dec. 28.-George House and his wife, who are members of the "Holy Roller" cult, today were held to the grand jury for the death of their daughter, Margaret, after they had testified they refused the child medicine "according to the Scriptures."

SECOND INVADERS TRAIL PRECEDENT Scdan.-(Correspondence of The As sociated Press.)-Emperor William and Chancellor von Bethmann-Holl weg, who were in the vicnity of Sedan October 10, visited the house at Don chery, near Sedan, where Bismarck first met Napoleon III, September 2, 1870. Both the emperor and his chancellor left mempentoes of their visit in the form of gold and their names. Having nothing else upon which to write his. Emperor William borrowed a card from a person of his suite and wrote on the back of it "Wilhelm II, I. R." "I knew perfectly who were the two men who came here in Septomber, 1870," said Madame Fournaire-Liban, speaking of the visit. "But this time I had no idea who was speaking to me. I chatted with them freely and one of them complained bitterly that the French send the Algerians, the Moroccans, the Senegalians and other savages against the Germans. Then the remark of one of the officers in the party revealed the identity of the speaker. It was Emperor William II. Another of the party was Prince Wal demar, son of Prince Henry. What seems to have made the most impres sion on the old lady was the stature of the chancellor, who she thus com pares to Bismarck. "He is tall, very tall, but he has not the wicked eyes of Bismarck."
