uf the Xoi-folk and Western Hailroad. c.\pla4tio<l what is
being done by the railroads to secure uniformity In
classification throughout the country.
M. H. Smith, vice-president of the louisville and
Nashville, eM'ialned the meihodf of hi- company In
making Its through, joint and ormpetlns rate* and
ossifications. He said that his road elan accept a
less raie for a longer than for a shorter distance, but
he urged, in Justification:, the competition of water
lines. While bis road had thus violated the letter of
the law, he regardcrl lt as a purely technical violation.
His road of necessity used several classifications, tad lt
had done much, and was now doing much, he said, to
secure uniform classifications.
Mr. Smith esld that his road had not strictly com?
piled with Hie law requiring tho posting of rates In Its
several offices, because lt was well-nigh Impossible to
do so. That feature of the law ho regarded as a dead
letter, for the reason that lt required something ut?
terly Impossible of performance. Theft rates, be said.
changed almost dally. These changes wore made
noocssary by the changes In water rates, which bis
company were obliged to moot. He had, however.
certain rate-tables rosted, but they wero tu* always, er
even often, correct.
Georg* O. Gauli, of Cincinnati, general manager of
thc Queen and Crescent route, explained what has been
done by bis system to bring its rates Into conformity
with the requirements of lbs law.

Railway and Steamship Association, and others, also
answered questions by tho Commisi-loners as ro ratos.
J. W. Thoma*, president and general manager of
the National, Chattanooga and St. Louis Hailroad.
said thal on local State traffic the rates In force on his
road conformed to tho law. but on through traffic
between competing i*'!nt* tVy do not.

Indianapolis. Dec. If). - Hot ween Senator Onay and
the Loyal I.oirlon this has been an extremely busy day
fm Qeaeral Harrison. The Pennsylvania Senator went
np to tie President elects laen early In the morning
and stayed there until sumo Hmo after noon, titan Ike
members of the Loyal Logion man-hod out In a body,
and tuen wm an Informal reception which !asfe?1 un?
til aftot dart. Ita each of the .'ton or loo veteran
Inion officers General Harrison said a friendly Ward Sf
tasman: fur eosntoS Srtth lbs members of Hie Inaugu?
ration Committee who accompanied Senator Quay from
Washington ho had tn run over the dry details of the
various ceremonies for the 4th of March. Baldest
efl all, In conference with the Napoleonic chairman of
the National Committee, ho had to Wnstfls again with
the difficult and delicate Stable UM of a Cabinet and>a
Senator Quay's long-falked-nf visit to Indianapolis
was a brief one. Ho reached this city a little before
midnight la.-t night and was gone again by H o'clock
this afternoon. Ho came and went, too, with little
eerenony. Nobody met him nt tho railroad station.
and only John C. New arni Private Secretary Halford
wore on hand to welcome him al the Now Denison
Hotel. With tho Pennsylvania senator were C.enoral
A. 8. Britton, chairman of the lnaucur.il Committee,
and I'. W. Loach, Mr. Quay's private secretary.
After a little hand-shaking, the party kieta up
and the visitors from Washington wont to bod.
The news that Senator Qi ny wes (n town di-ow a
small army of Indiana politicians io tho New Denison
Boto! this morning. Pew of them had ever seen the
chairman of tho llormblloan Committee, and all Wen
anxious to be Introduced fe him and to shake baud-.
Members of fh? I .oj'al lecion, ton. orowd-d Into tho
lobbies and tho Pennsylvania Senator could have
stood there and held a public recepiion for an hour,
if hat busfnem with General narrina had not called
him away as soon as he finished his breakfast Af
half-past 0 o'clock. John C. New came around to take
ihe Washington party out tc General Harri-on's house.
Senator Quay had never ni"! thc President-elect, th.men
both wei-.- memben Of the Chicago Convention nfl 1880
General Hani-.m betos ',r|e of the leaden of tba toma
which finally nominated General Garlleid, and Senator
Quay fighting In Ike ranks of the onlobntad Three
Hundred and Pix. Mr. New Introthired the visitors
'? How are you, Senator? I pSttSte wo ha\ o never
mot before," said the President-elect.
" I believe nut," replied Bte chairman of the
National Committee, as ho did his part of the hand
Mr. Quay then explained to General Harrison that
Generala Britton and Williams hal como to Indian?
apolis to tell General Harrison |uel what an-aneo
ssenta had been made for the Inauguration and to
ask bim If ho bad any ideas io suggest or modlSea
tlona to make, ii would bs a good nun io dianne
of that matter Int, the Pennsylvania Senator thought,
and so the two committeemen laid their plans before
the President-elect, who sall he had nothing addi?
tional to suggest, and came back w, tho hotel, loav.
lag senator Quay and the General to a private con?
ference, which lasftnl for two hours or more. Gen
(ral iirltton said, when he reached tho New renison,
that there was nothing now lu the committee's plans.
He and General Williams wen- chit-fly anxious to
find out If General Harrison had any special wishes
about the details of tho ceremonies, but tho Gen?
eral had practically left everything to the Washington
management, and ho and his asslstanti would go
ahead and make all the arrangement*.
'' How aro tie preparations for the Inauguration
getting on f rieneral Britton was asked.
?? Veiy satisfactory In every respect. It will mr
pass the display of any previous Inauguration. Wt
have n larger fund tjia'i ern before, ani already the
arrangements have been made for the entertainment
of about 25,000 people who will come in organised
bodies. This number does not Include individuals, hui
dimply military and civic organizations. There are
about 10,000 nf the militia and 15.000 or 18,000 S*n
belonging to the civic organizations. They como
mainly from Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ittiode [otal ? !
and Minnesota. Many will come from Iowa, Illinois
and Ohio, and some as fa-r away as Colorado have
already arranged to be prewnt. I want to say thal lt
will be a favor If you will state that we aro prepared
to make any arrangements Beeta Sd for tlie accommo?
dation of organ lint lon ot Individual! dearing tn at?
tend the Inauguration, If thuy will let us know thc4r
wishes. We look after everything. We have collected. In?
formation regarding tba howls, boarding?
houses and restaurant-, nod have ar?
ranged that none of them should charge higher
prices than .isual, and some of them we ha\ e Induced
to make lower rans than usual, as, for Instance, tho
leading lintels, which have reduced their piton from
SS to ti. a day. Wo not only seem.- for individuals
lie Lind of accommodations they want, but we have
committees to meet them at depot- wi en they arrive,
bl I ??(? that they have no trouble in lindliig the <iuar
lers engaged for them. We also look out for the liv
sry aiiailglWUHlle. so that .strangers will have no
trouble Iii getting to and fro. The perfection of tho
arrangements I? also shown further In tho caro of
hats, coats and canes at the ball. The force of Wa-h
kngton mail-carriers has been trained for that duty,
and ls under the direction of a man who has had
charge of this feature of the balls for three Inaugura?
Senator Quay got bark to the hotel about 1 o'clock.
Ile went upstairs at once, with a thumping headache,
and the admiring Indianapolltaiis, who had agata
crowded the tootles, were disappointed a second time.
Ile sat In tho room which Colonel William Cassius
Goodloe, of Kentucky, had engaged, and put ice on his
bead tor an hour or two, until time came for tho pan
handle train to start. Only a low eton political
fi lends wei-c aile to Bee bini, and ta Wn tOO much
prostrated, Colonel Goodloe said, to talk politics.
-ile said nothing to me about hi- visit to General
Harrison,'' added the Colonel, - imf even giving bia
personal Impression of tba Resident-elect, I am sure
he did not toll anybody herc "what tho mull of his
talk With tho Genual uas. Mr. Quay is not a roni
inuulcatlvc man, you know," concluded the Colonel,
With a smile. The Senator va- abie to stir around and
got ready fur the :i o'clock train, and ail thc Washing?
ton men went back with him.

this afternoon. In round figures lt appropriates

on rivers, creeks and bayous. If BM bill becomes a
law the river and harbor appropriations of the

In making an appropriation that the commerce sa

that If should be clearly potential." When the
possibilities opened by such a theory are considered
tho only wonder ls that the bill ls so moderate. There
are Innumerable creeks which might be dredged and
numbcrl'-ss bayous fi-om which the snags and saw?
yers might bo removed In the name of 'potential
commerce," and the committee has aoUttBjtod Itself
with recommending tho expenditure of only 818,000,

and extravagant appropriations has been umpired.
