- JtfO. 2666 ibprogram; stamd; four MEASURES OUT Interstate Trade Commission Proposal Made to House , and Senate. GREAT POWER IS GIVEN Modeled Largely on the.New- lands Measure of Last April. ALL TO GO TO COMMITTEES Other Three Measures Will Be Brought to Attention of Congress Today. Iljr JOSEPH P. JLXXlJf. Four bills, comprising the major part or- the anti-trust program outlined by President Wilson In his address Tues day, were made public by Representative Clayton, chairman of the Judiciary Com mittee, yesterday. One, the bill creatine aii interstate trade commission, was in troduced in the Bouse and Senate by 1 Representative Clayton and Senator 'Newlands. respectively, in the afternoon. The remaining three were made public last night. The four bills are: 1. Creatine aa Interstate trade com mission, to aet In an. advisory capacity to the courts and the Department at Justice. 2. Prohibiting Interlocking- director ates or control of potential competitor! dolus; an Interstate business. 3. Defining- unlawful monopoly or re straint of trade. 4. Prohibiting; certain trade rela tions and practices, anch as undersell 1ns In one locality to stifle competition, while recouping; by Increased prices on the same commodity In another locality. The program conforms with the Presi dent's antl.trust views and the measures have his approval They represent the ?t-mbincd work of Chairman Clayton and Representatives Floyd and Carlln, of the Judiciary Committee, and Senator Newlands, chairman of the Interstate Commerce Committee, of the Senate. Will Go to Committees The last three bills will be introduced In the House and Senate today. In the House they will be. 'referred to the diciary'Committee. In the Senate they wilt co to the-Interstate Comjnerco.Cotn mittee. .-" The trade commission bill Is modeled very largely upon the bill introduced by Senator Newlands last April, but It creates a larger commission and with materially less Independent authority than does the original Newlands bllL At the bame time the later bill, which Is intended to con form tightly with the Presidents mes sage on this point, offers greater oppor. tunity for co-operation between the com mission and the courts than did the original Newlands bill. In the case of several sections, the verbiage of the two bilj is Identical. Two fundamental differences, the first of . hich unquestionably will be a rally ing point fcr rad'cals in opposition to the administration measure, are: Original Newlands Bill. 1. The original Newlands bill gave the commission authority, following an lnves tlgatlon upon Its own initiative of the operations and organization of a corpora tion affected by the Sherman law. to in dicate to that corporation what. If any. changes In Its connections, operations or methods of business were necessary to bring It within the anti-trust law. Only in the event of the failure of such a corporate- t" comply with the requirements of the commission, was the latter di rected to report the dereliction to the Attorney General. In the administration measure the commission, while authorized to make the Investigation upon Its own Initiative. Is dire ted to report its findings an- conclusions at orce to 'the Attorney General in the event that the corporation Invests ated Is jund not to be comply ing with tl.e law, an-: any action to be taken must originate with the Att jey General. On of the principle causes of com plaint against the Sherman law as it now stands is that.' except in the case of damr.ge suits, all actions alleging vio lation of the law must originate with the .'ttorney General, who is not re quired to act except upon his own dis cretion. 2. The original Newlands bill did net contain a section similar to section 10 of the proposed bill. This section pro vides that in suits of equity the court may refer any aspect of the litigation or any proposed decree to the commission, which shall be empowered to investigate and report its findings to the court. Broadens Commission Scope, This section unquestionably broadens the' utility of the commission, and is purely an idea of President Wilson in dealing with the trust question. The commission provided for in the bill, while it Is not accorded the independent power of the Interstate Commerce Com mission, furnishes a frame-work upon which later legislation may hang al most unlimited powers if such' a course is demanded by the public. The trade commission will was re ferred to the Interstate and Foreign Commerce Committee of the House. Representative Adamson, of Georgia, chairman Judge Adamson has agreed to accept the Newlands-Clayton bill as the basis upon which his committee will work to a finished measure. The decision on the trade commission measures obviates the possibility of friction between two powerful committees of the House' over the handling of, the measure. The'' bill Introduced yesterday- creates a commission composed cf five members at salaries of $10,000- The commission absorbs the bureaaoC corporations of the Department .'of Coaaajjrcc, and the pres ent chief of tae.buMau becomes the first chairman of the trade commission. Mem bers of the .commission are to be ap pointed by the President and confirmed by the Seaata aaeUultimatsly the term of office is to.be seveayears, though the members of the first "-commission are to be appointed vf or -.terras of three, four, five, six. and Sseven years, respectively, the chairman ts) netiveh the first seven year term. Afterward;' the chairman is to -he elected by the'commlssioh. A sec- O0.NTINUHerCE IH1IKX. , ! ' THAW AWARDED UKOME. Court Directs Trust Company to Fay Htm $30,000. Special to The WiaMsiton BeraVi.

MEN RUSH TO THEIR AID 1300 Strikers Driven Back from .Hos pital, Where Aged Agitator Is Pris oner, at Point of Bayonet. Trinidad, Colo., Jan; 22. Mounted militiamen with drawn swords this aft ernoon repeatedly charged a crowd of 1,500 strikers and strike sympathizers who attempted to .march through the city to the San Rafael Hospital to rescue "Siother" Jones, who is held by the military authorities. Rocks and sticks were burled at the militiamen by a throng of excited women. Numerous arrests were made. The militiamen repeatedly rode down the crowd, but so far as Is known no one was badly hurt. Wild scenes of disorder occurred. The banners which tho women carried were torn to shreds when the soldiers charged, and in the scattering many children barely escaped being crushed under the hoefs of the racing horses. The trouble started when the soldiers halted a procession of women en route to the hospital. When the order to tlls- perse was given a mob of several bun- Ju-.dred men went to the rescue of the women, "The Cavalry turned Its attention to the; men and while thus-engaged" the women attempted to proceed on their march toward the hospital. The women again were turned back, but refusing to disperse and taking a stand, the cavalry charged. Women Are Scattered. Women and children scattered in all directions, many of them taking refuge in the Jesuit church. As many of the paradcrs and sym pathizers as could be collected were marched to the center of the city where twenty men were placed under arrest and taken to the military prison. Sympathizers joined in a second out break during which sticks and stones were thrown at the militia. The attempt to reach the hospital fol lowed a mass meeting. Five hundred women and children then marched through the business district and started toward the hospital. At the postofflce they were stopped by a solid phalanx of cavalrymen and a largo company of ln fantry. The crowd began surging up from be hind, and an attempt was made to turn ba&k and disperse them. Most of the men had scattered and were going away when a crowd of women rushed Into the center of the street and began Jeering the National Guard. The mounted soldiers, headed- by Gen. Chase In person, then rode back, driv ing the people Into the buildings and resorting to strenuous nSeasures in an effort to clear the streets. The situation Is tense, and further out breaks are liable to occur at any moment. UiraEEESTIMATE BRADY ESTATE Recently Discovered Holding Ofay Swell Total to 3200,000,000.

Maynadier Shoots Self with Pistol,, Expiring Before Reaching 't ' Emergency Hospital. "" " ASKED FOR "RUN IN THE PARK" A man supposed to have been G. B. Maynadier, formerly an employe of the Bureau of Soils, Department of Agri culture, hired a taxi early last night at Fourteenth and V streets, and, saying that he did not feel well, ordered the uu.cr iu unvn mill uuuim uic emu- way. When the machine reached the concrete bridge near the outlet of the basin, about 9 o'clock, tho chauffeur heard a report in the cab, and getting out. found his "fare" huddled In a corner with a revolver at his feet. The chauffeur hurried to Emergency Hospital. When ho reached there it was found that the man had shot himself through tne right eye. His death had been instantaneous. There was nothing In the man's pockets tf. aid the police Identifying him. except a room key of a Baltimore hotel. He had caller at a G street restaurant earlier in the day, however, to ask after former friends In Washington, of an old colored waiter, and through the waiter and a telegram to theBaltlmore hotel it was practically decided that it was the former Department of Agriculture employe. It Is supposed that despondency over the loss of his position was the cause of Maynadler's action. Up to the fall of lSi: lie had been in the employ of the Eureau of Soils, and then was trans ferred to the Ohio Experiment Station at Wooster, Ohio. Last fall he was dropped from the rolls. Maynadier was first seen at G and Fourteenth streets by Policeman Creamer. He apparently was 111. The policeman offered his assistance and Maynadier said that he wanted a taxi to take him to his home at Sixteenth and S streets. A machine was called, but when the passenger reached the designated place he said he wanted to rldo around the speedway and It was In the course of this ride that he shot himself. A search of tbe man's pockets revealed nothing but the hotel key. home small change, and keys, and a letter addressed to Dr. 'George A. Jardine, 650 Euclid ave nue, Cleveland. Ohio. Irt this letter, which was without signature, a certain "Mr. M" was mentioned, the writer saying that his nervcusness was still with him, but that his general condition seemed to be Improved. During his talk with the waiter. May nadier had mentioned owning a farm In either Ann Arundel County, or Marshall HalL The directory of Washington for 1900 gives his address at 1CC7 Twenty-second street northwest.

FLAYS PRIVATE SLEUTHS Document of Over Three Hundred Pages Sets Forth Governor's Views in 982 Cases. Erecul to To Wublsgtoo BotM. Columbia. S. a, Jan. S. Why Got. Cole L. Blease granted pardons, paroles and commutations of sentence to hun dreds of convicts last year Is set forth in a message transmitted to the legisla ture today. It is a printed book of S3 pages. Since assuming office three years ago Gov. Blease has extended clemency In S5J cases. The striking feature of the report Is the bold manner in which tie expresses his opinion of negroes. He speaks of them as "on the order of lower animals." The governor remarks. In reporting that he has paroled J. E. Murray, a negro bigamist: "It every negro In this State that la guilty of bigamy or marital in fidelity is brought up and convicted, labor will be. much scarcer than It is and many acres that are now cultitated will be Idle." In teUlng of -. parole granted to Sam G-sklns. a negro convicted of man slaughter. Gov. please says: This negro, being engaged -to a'-riegro girl. callcU to h"" "' in fooling with a pistol It went o and killed her. It seems to have been a very sad acciJ'Mit: however, after a second thought. . isslbly It was for the good of humanity, for had they married no doubt they would have brought forth more negroes to the future detriment of the State." Compares Nrcro to Mole. Commenting on his action in commuting the sentence of Stake Morris, a negro murderer, from death to life Imprison ment, the governor says: "This defendant was convicted of kill ing another negro. I am naturally a-alnst electrocuting or hanr'ng one negro for killing another, beer -te. If a man had two mules runnl-g loose In a lot and one went mad and kicked i-nd killed the other he certainly would not take his gun and shoot the other mule, but would take that mul and work It: therefore. I be lieve that when one negro kills another he should be put In the penitentiary and made to work for the State." One reason given for the paroling of J. Allen Emmerson. a murderer, is that the convict's sister's health has been broken by the grief caused by his im prisonment. Assails Private Detectives. "Her life." says Gov. Blease, "is worth more to her and her children, and Is worth more to the citizenship and the motherhood of this country than the in carceration of her brother Is worth to the State." Not Infrequently the governor in his report speaks scornfully or angrily of the prosecutors of the convicts whom he has released. In granting clemency to Bud Willis, a white man convicted on the evidence of private detectives of violating; the liquor laws, Blease fiercely denounces private detectives. He says: "I have no sympathy for such a breed of cattle, calling themselves human be ings; they are a disgrace to the name detective, and I take great pleasure In setting aside the conviction and giving to this young man a free and unlimited pardon." -In explaining why he paroled Ernest T. Brewlngton. a white man convicted of nonsupport of his wife. Gov. Blease says:? "It seems that this boy was forcibly made to marry this girl, who most prob ably was not of as good moral character as she should have been, and that as soon as the ceremony was over and he could get himself free and loose he de serted her and declined to have anything to do with her. "I think he was a fool for marrying her, if the facts as stated are true, be cause under the law of South Carolina, where he could not get a divorce, I would rather risk being shot or risk my chances of leaving the State and going some- where else, than risk getting loose after getting married. The general assembly of South Carolina today adopted resolutions calling for the .repeal of the nrteenth amendment to the Federal Constitution which gave negroes the right to vote.

The Imperial rovemmeaO most earnestly hopes that peace and tranquility will be restored In Mexico at the earliest possible date, and that Its Inhabitants, native nnd foreign, mill he en abled to live free from anxiety." Without the knowledge of the President or Secretary of State, Ambassador Cranda. of Japan. last night made public the first official and complete statement regarding Japan.se policy In Mexico, where a Japanese cruiser is now sta tioned. The statement Is a translation or the announcement on this subject made In the parliament Wednesday by Baron Maklno. Minister of Foreign Affairs. In this same speech he included a state ment of Japan's policy in China and re lations with Russia. Baron Makino declared that Japan't action In sendng a culser to Mexico was due solely to the necessity, of .thj government. .Sauna nroDti smUysHTeauat. s steps' to" protect hsnve3,.nd' properem j- or any or its 3.(100 subjects m Mexico which might be endangered by the dls" terbsnees In that country. His statement regarding Mexico nas as follows: "In February last, revolution broke out in the capital of Mexico and Gen. Huerta became Provisional President in the same month. The whole country remained In disturbance and. since the fall of Torreon In October, conditions of affairs became even more serious. At present, the num ber of the Japanese subjects In Mexico is close upon 3,0.0. It need hardly b said that it became necessary to take appropriate measures for protection, fore seeing the possibility of the lives and properties of these subjects being en dangered. Japanese Are Co-operating. "With this view th Imperial govern ment dispatched the warship Idzumo to Mexico on November 20. She is now in communication with our Minister in Mex ico so that every care is being taken that there should be nothing omitted to ward the protection of the Japanese rest- dints in that country. "Further, the Japanese subjects in th City of Mexico have. In co-operation with other nations, organized volunteer corpt and our Minister Is, In concert with tbe representatives of other powers, taking measures for self-defense, and. as some Japanese subjects are In great distress, the Minister Is, In conjunction with the commander of the Idzumo. taking steps for their relief. The Imperial government most ear nestly hopes that peace and tranquility will be restored in Mexico at the earliest possible date, and that its Inhabitants, native and foreign, will be enabled to live free from anxiety." AVnnts Tntesrrlty In Chlnn. Regarding Chinese relations.
