ILLS OF RMLROUJS
Atchisoirs President Criticises
Attitude of Congress.
K. P. Rlpley. president of the Uchison
I Toreka & Santa Fe, Railway Company- was
i cuoted yesterday in a Chicago dispatch 10
a TVall Street new 3 bureau as crlticisins
jsewrclv the attitude of Congress toward
the railways. He said:
"Congress is arrogating to itself all the
I functions it railway management except
the payment or bills. That detail it conde
scends to leave to the railroads. So. you
see. Congress still has tone consideration
for railway men and security holders. I
suppose we ought to be thankful even for
trifles.
"Our legislators aacM to be affilctf d with
the anti-railroad mania. It la a terrible af
fliction—almost incurable. Newly elected
.ReDresematives an seized with it as qoiok-
Iv v some of the old members. Th» average
legislator does not wait for trouble: he
looks for K. He carefully canvasses his
friends and business acquaintances for any
grievance they may lave against trans
portation lines, and If he discovers any
prejudice or r-nmity.. however ill grounded,
he immediately delivers the speech or
frames the bin that it- to niak^ him famous.
The motto of ,>•;•• distinguished statesmen
appears to be: 'When in doubt about pro
ducing a political effect, hit the railroads.*
"X» wonder we must bow pro 10 Europe
to raise money. The home investor ha,«
been finally frightened or impressed by this
constant railroad baiting. But there is now
another side to the borrowing question.
Af^er you have borrowed, you must meet
the increased interest .-harg^ on a heavier
Indebtedness, an to meet such interest
will become increasingly difficult If rail
road halting continues.
"Put Jn anotlicr way, Ml* zro= c eam
kKa »r<> Increased by the aaiimed facili
ties nadr }>n?sih)e by but rowing, the net
returns cannot correspondingly enhance be
cause of the destructive restrictions im
posed by legislation. You can do a bigger
busl»e«?. but that business, under the cir
cumstances, becomes less and less profit
able. Tl !p a mystery where this move
ment will land the road*, or rather it is not
a mystery. Auditor. ? of railroads can see
th» outcome if legislators are not brought
back to* sanity. If Confess would adjourn
for five or ten years the country would
arise to permanent pmpnltT-.
"Atchison's physical condition is highly
satisfactory, but the traffic outlook depends
largely on what Congress win net do."

PRIZES TO PROMOTE SAFETY
Kirby, President, Declares His
Belief in Need of a New
Political Party.
t Qlll'lCxAi XT cxi If .
The subject of the prevention of indus
trial accidents, with the nearly related ques
tion cf the liability of employers, engaged
the attention of the National Association
of Manufacturers for the greater part of
yesterday's session of the fifteenth annual
meeting: at the Waldorf.
In the report of the committee on indus
trial Indemnity insurance, the most bulky
committee report of tin present convention,
J it was recommended that the president and
j directors of the association be empowered
!to .establish a mutual contributory insur
ance concern, which should cover the four
chief risks of employer and employe—em
[pJoyer's liability, accident, sickness and old
jape indemnity. The recommendation went
to the committee on resolutions, and will
be broupht out for action to-day. The plan
is to establish an insurance concern, not
ias a financial risk of the National Asso
ciation of Manufacturers, but as a mutual
contributory organization, and to make
the corporation elastic enough to permit
of the receipt of voluntary contributions
to the sickness, old age and death insur
ance phases of its business.
Frizes for Safeguarding Employes.
This committee's report contained also
the recommendation that an annual prize of
fIO.MO be Riven by the association each year
to the inventor of the best safety device
designed for the protection of operators
in manufacturing plants, and another prize
of $10,000 be given each year as an award
to the manufacturing plant which should
be judged the safest establishment -of Its
kind.
Action on the above recommendation, it
was said yesterday, was likely 10 take the
form of a memorial endowment fund to be
named for James W. Van Cleave, former
president of the association, the fund to be
raised by members of the association, and
the two annual gifts to be designated as
the Van Cleave prizes for safety devices
and for safe plants.
Professor Frederic Remsen Hutton. of
Columbia University, grave an address, with
illustrations, showing' the possibilities or
safeguarding: operators on manufacturing
machines, and Henry L. Rosent'eld. of the
Equitable, and Miles M. Dawson, of the
New York Life, spoke briefly on compensa
tion for industrial accidents.
John Kirby. jr.. president of the associa
tion, presented Mb annual report yesterday,
and in it be recommended the, suggestions
of the committee on indemnity insurance.
Mr. Kirby commended highly the appoint
ment or Governor Charles E. Hashes to the
Supreme Court bench.
Time for New Political Party.
As to political matters in general, how
ever. Mr. Kirby declared that he believed
the time had come for the. formation of a
Dew political party that should voice the
sentiments of Fremont and Lincoln, and
which should gain power enough to hold
the balance between the two existing par
ties of strength.
He condemned the recent law passed in
Massachusetts authorizing peaceful picket
ing and declared there could not be any
such thins: as "peaceful picketing, and lie
took a little fling at Samuel Gcmpers, pres
ident of the American Federation of Labor,
whose type, he said, stood condemned by
public opinion.
The committee on merchant marine, with
its report, recommended that tlie associa
tion coßtinue ha fisht for the plan " . ship
subsidies. The Panama Canal, reported
this committee, would be completed by the
United States without an American mer
chant sL.ii) to gain the benefit of it.
George H. Maxwell, for the committee
on forests aiM irrigation, suggested as owe
measure of forest growth and preservation
york that growing trees, not matured,
should be eliminated from the taxable as
sets of property. For the development of
rivers and harbors the committee urged
that all possible pressure should be brought
to bear on legislators fur survey of reser
voir sites on the Allegheny and MonoTisa
hela rivers, sad for the enactment of the
pending White Mountain and Appalachian
National Forest bill, now before Congress.
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the con
vention adjourned its business session and
convened m a memorial service f«r James
W. Van Cleave, who was buried yePterday
in St. Louis. The Rev. B. Edward Young,
of the Bedford Memorial Church, Brooklyn,
conducted the service, and delivered ■ brief
eulogy of the former president of the asso
ciation. The F-?s!?ionp will end with a din
ner to-night.
