RAILROAD IMMUNITY
Subject of Lively Tilts at Standard
Oil Hearing.
Chicago Oct U.-<la»atlana aal ■ "' fl^-
JSStlon of » j;
manager of the Btandard Oil Company by Frank
B Kellogg, government attorney in the hearing of
th.. railroad phase of the government cult to-day,
brought on an argument between counsel for the
oil company and the government on the subject °*
Immunity to railroads.
The primary question propounded to Mr. Ft .ton
concerned a 12-cent rate between Whiting, tad..
«nd Toledo, and an 11-cent rate from Whiting to
Cincinnati. Mr. Fulton declared that the roads out
of Chicago, under pressure from the bureau of
corporation!!, put In an Illegal rate to Toledo.
Mr. K*:io*K asked: "Did all the railroads put
out these rales to East St. Louis, to Evansville.
to Grand Junction, the rat- s from CaUcago to To
ledo, because tin v.ere afraid of the bureau of
corporations?"
Mr. nnsriitl il. for the d^r-nee. Interposed: I
think ell of the railroads that were granted Im
munity against criminal prosecution by private ar
rangement -with the government, whlcb. was on
£isclos*d, pronabljr Clot."
"Will you anew* the question?" continued Mr.
Kellogg:, addressing Mr. FeHon.
"I don't know of a railroad that was indicted."
commented Mr. Kosenthai. while Mr. Felton re
plied that he could not answer ti*a question. Mr.
Kosenthal continued, "and the records in the va
rious canes show that they were granted Immunity.
"What they did under the pressure of that grant
cf Immunity we do not altogether know."
Mr. Kellogg then interposed with the words.
"the mere of that sort of talk you put in the
record, Mr. Kosenthal, the arorse It -will be for
you."
Instant rejoinder was made by Mr. Roaenthal,
who declared:
"When the time corner that you cannot only con
trol your own case, but undertake to control what
I put in the record, then it Is time for me to
withdraw from the case, and I will do it whenever
•we reach that stage. I do not hear any denial
from the government's side of the table that these
railway companies were granted Immunity from
criminal prosecution."
Mr. Kellogg disclaimed knowledge of any Im
munity or promise of immunity and after a few
more -words the cross-examination was resumed.
Questions of the freight tariffs in force be
tween "Whiting and Evansvflle and eastern points
were asked of the witness, who testified that the
filed tariff gave the rate from Whiting to Evans
vllle as 11 cents, and that a state rate, not Bled,
fixed the charge at S\; cents. This rate of b^
cents vas pveii on the assumption that Whiting
and Evansville being both hi the same state took
a state rate, which need not be filed with the Inter
state Commerce Commission.
Throughout the day there were tilts between the
government attorney and the witness, as -well as
thrusts from counsel for the government and for
■th»> defence.
The cross-examination of Mr. Felton, with the
exception of a few minor questions, was completed
at the adjournment of court for the day.

/. G. ( AXXOX TO BANKERS.
Local Bank Official Makes a Plea for
Single Name Paper.
.Tames G. Cannon, vice-president of the Fourth
National Bank, of this city, who is an authority
on the subject of commercial paper, in an address
yesterday before the Illinois State Hankers' Asso
ciation In Chicago dwelt upon the value of single
name paper as an asset of commercial banks, and
expressed his opposition to the idea of the registra
tion of tea, which he believed would drive a
large number of the best business and industrial
concerns from the open market, owing to their re
fusal to rmlt the exposure of their business to
the public eye. Air. Cannon said. In (-art:
In the evolution of the bank!] aiul credit sys
tem during the last twenty-five yea: the prac
tice has grown up of Arms and corporations bor
rowing money on the open market on their single
name pai>er. It used to be the fashion to criti
cise single name jiaper, as It was assumed that
raising money in this way was a kiting operation.
Many things havo brought ... in pub
lic opinion, anil to-day two-thirds of all tlie paper
purchased by our banks, It Is fair to say, is sin
gle name. Single name paper makes no pre
tence to b^ing anything else than it appears— a
simple promise to pay, ha sod on a statement <>f
facts which every Intelligent banker should try to
obtain for himself.

■ . ■ : . -The validity of that eecttea of
th«» labor law providing that no workmen oa pub
lic work "shall be permitted or required to worn
more than eight hours In one calendar day" 's Up
held by the Court of Appeals In a decision lnnded
down to-day. The court in substance holds that a
violation of this law Is Justification for the with
holding of payments for such work from contracts.
The question came uj ' '• boson ( :■" l "®

of New York, to pay two Instalments, aggregating
about $14.00©, on a contract for the completion of

refused 1 ayment, contending that the con
; : • ated the labor .law, in tha'. they
employed their men more than eight hours a day
and did not pay the prevailing rate of -wages.
The Court of Appeals reversed the lower courts
which directed the payment of the money. The
judges sitting ia this case were CHlef Judge Cul
len and Judges Vann, Chase, Wlllard, Barttett,
Gray, Werner and Hiscock.
In an opinion by Judge Vann reference is made
to the recent amendment to the constitution, and
Which took effect January ], 1986, giving the Liegls
power to regulate and fix the wages or eal

Judge Vann says that In this case the court
confines* Its attention to that section of the law
which prohibits employes from working more than
eight hours in any one day. The opinion says in
part:

LO, THE POOR ALIEN!
Immigrants Xot to Blame for Conn-,
try* Ills, Say Clubwomen.
The poor Immigrant who di«s the subways ana
gats killed In the factories and keep* the wheels
of industry moving In this country wai the sub
ject of considerable heated discussion at the So
ciety for Political Study, which met in the Hotel
Abut yesterday, and It was not without honor
that lie emerged at last from the dust of battle.
Mr:«. Emma Beckwlth, who read the paper of the
day, is unA of those who seem to think that all
the 'ills of the country are due to these hastily
enfranchised aliens.
"We must pull in the latchstrlng." she said.
"In my opinion this country la on the eve of a
Keneral uprising 1 and change of affairs all around.
We must have a general cleaning up of things
political. The ballot Is too free and is being
;ibused, and if we care for the welfare of our
country we women should turn our attention
nway from getting the ballot for ourselves and
demand that os long as we cannot havo It these
newcomers must n<.t. Votes are bound to be sold
when held by those who cannot appreciate their
value. If I were a pessimist I would say that
America would have to ha\e and would have a
dire disaster to bring her to htr Benson."
Mrs. Beekwtth advocated pulling in the latch
strtng for ten years and making n residence of
twenty-ono years necessary for enfranchisement,
hut she had no soon«r resumed her seat than the
society with one accord took up cudgels for the
immigrant.
"The Immigrants have built up our country.'
said Mrs. 1/ Scott Bower, "and If we are pros
perous and well regarded citizens It Is because
they are doing the work la our factories and our
mines." ,
"We hear a great deal about the ignorance of
foreigners." Bald Mrs. Ella Crane Wilkinson, "but
we are too likely to forget our own obligations,
like the mountain whites. If there Is to be a
crusade against Ignorance wo had better begin
at home, and then there will be a better class of
citizens for the immigrants to •come In contact
with."
••We blame the foreigners for political cor
ruption." aatd Mrs. Anna Jackson, "when the
trouble is with our own corrupt political system.
If we had an honest government we could easily
asslmllat* the aliens-."

Women Active in Improving Health Condi

{From Th« Tribune Bureau. 1
■Washington. Oct. 13.— of the most Interesting
papers submitted to the International Congress on
Tuberculosis, held in Washington, was that of the
Countess of Aberdeen, president of the Women's
National Health Association of Ireland, which
was represented by Miss Margaret McNeil], who
for seven years was superintendent in one of tho
largest hospitals of Dublin.
Lady Aberdeen formed this society a year and a
half aso and because the death rate In Ireland,
both directly and indirectly, from tuberculosis was
appalling. The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland pre
sided over the first meeting. A chart presented at
that meeting showed that one-sixth Of all the
deaths In Ireland in BM wire from tuberculosis. A
further investigation showed that the death rate
from the white plaguq wan smaller in children from
Mith to live years of age than in either Knglund
or Scotland, while from the age of five to twenty
five, when the disease reaches the maximum, the
daatk rate araa. amch higher than In either of tha
other countries. And, pathetic to relate, the ma
jority of the subjects were women, which spoke
ill for the housing and school conditions of the
country-
I^ady Aberdeen personally went throughout Ire
land, and, in company with the Viceroy, attended
many of the opening meetings of the society.
la the paper read by Miss McNelll I.*dy Aber
deen pave tia the reason for putting women at the
head of the white r^sue movement that t^9 re
forms lay within the homes and tr. rcush tl»
mothers of Ireland, and women coold best reaoi
them.
A3 to the results. Lady Aberdeen says that '*"*
is one point upon which all agree, and that Is &V
Is a marvellous difference In, the number of *'>
dows which are mom open throughout IrelanJ. aai
especially .it night. in some cases half th« wia "
atom are taken out to prevent the recalcUrast
members of the family from shutting them. Msfl/
applications are made to landlords for facilities w
open windows which are not built to open. la other
cases, windows -which were nailed up tot ye*?*
have been released from their impediment*. Tfc»
children return from the lectures and d->aa-".l
"stirabout" and milk. Instead of whit* bread *"*
tea. which formerly made their chief diet.
Nathan Straus, of New York. took up the T£mZ'
ter of a better milk supply In Dublin, and con
tributed a plant for .1 pasteurized milk depot. He
also brought Miss McNeill to this country t»
lecture.
So enthusiastic did the people of Ireland 'jecaaa
over Lady Aberdeen's move, said Mlas» McNeil
that the poor people In one street of a city f ' Ul^
washed their houses Inside and out In honor of t<*
visit. In another place a small boy. who was called
to order for knocking another boy down. indtß*
nantly asserted the righteousness of his case -'
saying. "Please, sir. he was spitting."
In one city the poor working women became *»
Interested In set-ing the exhibitions and hearing t~
lectures that they lent one another their blouse*
that they might be respectably attired.
The Registrar General interested himself ! " a
movement for better health conditions in Irel * C 4
and divided the houses Into four classes, the four "
class being designated as unfit for habitation. b'- 5 *
there was less than 1.46 per cent of these. I "*£

Exceedingly bizarre waists are made of band *
wide and very ornate trimming. Four bands of tc
trimming, two on each side, running from the £*>
