The testimony of W. J.

Tho witness, who had been on the stand for many hourn the day before and who ha prepared about forty exhibits of j statistics, was beinK questioned nv to , his source of information as to tho aver age wages of tho firemen on all tho roads I Ho said that ho received a good deal of I his Information from tho records of the Interstate Commerce Commission This ' has always been a soro subject with Mr. ' Carter, who arose and mid that such j information was untrustworthy. He went on: "It is a mntter of common knowledge ' that tho reports in tho records of tho Interstate rotnmorco Commission ns to tho average earnings of tho firemen , engineers and othura nro erroneous. The records are fnlsit in many respects because they are one sided nnd everything is predicated on tho earnings of men who are employed all tho time nnd tho best paid men. too. I want tho board to know that such records aro erroneous." "Wo aro confronted with tho statement from Mr Carter, counsel for tho other sldo, that tho present testimony is bnned on erroneous figures," said Mr. Lou. "If such is tho caso I do not boo why tho wltnehs should oontinuo Us testimony." "Tho figures in tho records of tho Inter state Commerce Commission from which the witness is quoting are erroneous," wild Mr Carter "Misleading records nro furnished by railroads to tho commission." "You mado tho unqualified statement that tho figures In tho testimony of tho witness are erroneous," said Mr. Lea. "If that is tho caso I object to rocolvlng such testimony " Mr. Carter said: "Then I will object to tho testimony of the experts to bo called by the rail roads It false in one caso it would be false in another I do not blamo tho witness for tho Inaccuracy of tho records ol tho Interstate Commorco Commission. lou would think tnut thi'so record wore tho proper souroo of information, but they were very severely criticised by a member of tho board which arbitrated tho demands of tho engineers, who, I have hoard, now regrets that they em ployed an expert Tho statistics about tho pay of tho firemen prepared by tho Interstate Commerce Commission take no account of tho men who aro working only part timo, but aro based on tho average earnings of tho highest priced men work lug full timo. For, nay, 600 men working full timo there nro l.ooo or l.isno working part time, nnd it costs them ns muoh to live as If thoy wore working nil the time. 1 think you should not mnko an award based on false statistics " "If that statement goes In," said Mr Lee, "1 object to any moro testimony from this witness " Mr Carter s.iiil that the name kind of testimony would bo ns unrellablo If It enmo frotn a witness on behalf of tho railroads .Judge Chambers, chninnan of tho board, then brought the discussion to a clow by ruling that tho witness could go on with his restimony, and Mr Leo entered an objection When tho witness took tho stand yes terday forenoon tho question of how long tho hearings wore likoly to last came up. Judging from the progress mnde It was thought that this witness would bo on the stand all this wwk Ho is to lo the Inst of tho witnesses for tho firemen nnd aftor ho is cross-examined tho witnesses for tho railroads will como on. After tho hearing was over Judgo Chambers said ho believed that on ao count of the decision to simply Hlo the re mainder of the exhibits of Mr. Lauck after to-morrow the board would not ho re quired to extend its hearings beyond tho allotted thirty days GAVE HIS BLOOD IN VAIN.
