Ada L. Bryan Files Suit Affecting
Trust Fund.
Ada L. Bryan tooay Instituted proceed
ings in the District Supreme Court to re
quire the payment of certain counsel fees
out of the body of a trust fund of 110,000,
established by Chester A. Snow, under
which fund the complainant, the Washlgton
City Orphan Asylum and Elise Irving,
tnother of the complainant, are stated to be
beneficiaries. W. Clarence Duvall and Jo
seph J. Darlington, as trustees for the fund,
and the Washington Asylum, and Mrs Irv
ing, as co-beneficiaries, are named defend
The complaint alleges that Chester A.
Snow of this city entered into an agree
ment in 18&1 whereby he promised to estab
lish a trust fund of $10,000 for the benefit
of the complainant, who was then Ada L.
Snow, and for the benefit of the Theodora
Home for Incurable Children, should such
be established; the Washington City Or
phan Asylum and Ellse Irving. It is further
averred that Chester A. Snow February 17,
18DH, sold property for about $200,000, from
which proceeds the trust fund was to be
created, but refused, the complainant as
serts. to carry out the alleged agreement.
She states that she employed as counsel
Messrsr Douglas & Douglas in the interest
of her claim, and says that they secured j
the transfer of the sum of $10,000 from Mr.
Snow the 12th Instant to Messrs. Duvall
and Darlington, as trustees. The complain
ant avers that the expenses of the employ
ment of counsel have been borne by her
alone and asks that the amount be fixed j
by the court and ordered to be paid out I
of the body of the fund. The suit was filed
by Attorneys Douglas & Douglas.

man were promptly notified of his death,

Friends think it wai the intention or ,
Thomas to tak?- the fatal dose while on the

had left the stage, however, before he gave

Tillman Warns Senate Against
Inadequate Legislation.
Wise Action Now May Bar Mere Radi
cal Remedies.
Declares That It Should Be Amended,
but Changes Should Not Impair
Accomplishment of Its Aim.
"Tlio*e who are r?spon*'Me for or Inadp
qimIp legislation m ill flucl that w li->n at l ist tlie
flood cate* i.f j-ooular wratb and indigiiat'on nr'
lioiire.l tliere "ill li? re t-oeu ximt floe erlii Jiw
done." -Senator Tillman.
Senator Tillman today pre?en;ed to the
Senate his renort l'rom the committee ?k
interstate commerce on the Hoiu? railroad
rate t?i 11. which expnt'sed his views, but
did not pretend to speak for any other
member of the committee. It embodied the
first clear and concise statement of the dif
Senator Tillman.
forencs concerning court-review features
and other proponed amendments that had
made a unanimous report from the commit
tee impossible.
Without hesitancy the senator declared It
to be h'a belief that the bill should be
amended, but that amendments .-hould not
be of a character to impair or prevent the
accomplishment of the objects of the legis
lation. which are set forth best, he says, In
the President's message to Congi a He
emphasized the need of regarding the meas
ure as non-partisan, but predicted that the
issue created will be paramount in the next
presidential election.
Mr. Tillman prefaced his report by speak
ing of the peculiar circumstances ruling the
committee's actions on the House bill, whic-i
made it an embarrassing task to submit
views that would be concurred in by the
comn\ittee as a whole. Commenting itpor
the absence of harmony in the committee'*
deliberations, the report sa\s:
Party Lines Broken.
"Instead of being amended in commit
tee, as is usual, so as to command as a
whole the indorsement and support of H
majority of its members, the bill was
brought into the Senate in a form not en
tirely satisfactory to more than two mem
bers. Party lines in the committee were
broken down and the bill is in the Senate
by reason of the union of live members of
the minority party and three members of
the majority party in Congress who con
curred In reporting it favorably, and while
thes?- eight senators are agreed as to the
general purpose and scope of the bill, there
are radical differences among them us to
the amendments that ought to be incorpor
ated in it to make it fully adequate lo ineet
the demands of the business interests of the
country at this time.
"This lack of harmony among the sup
porters of the bill?it would be speaking
with more accuracy to say the supporters
of the policy involved In the bill?brings
about the anomalous situation in which a
member of the minority partv in Congress
is put in charge in the Senate of proposed
legislation which is generally regarded
throughout the country as the cherished
scheme of the President, with whose gen
eral policy and principles that member Is
not in accord. At the same time the bill
is designed to carry Into effect his own
long-cherished convictions and the thrice
reiterated demands of the party to which
lie belongs."
Emphasizing the claim that this condi
tion is wothout precedent in legislative
history, Mr. Tillman says It brings Into
prominence the fact that the proposed leg
islation Is non-partisan, and is so recog
nized as a result of the unanimous sup
port given It by the minority In the House
and the few opposing votes?only seven?
In that entire body. "It therefore follows,"
says Mr. Tillman, "if events shall prove
that this measure his broken down party
lines In both branches of Congress, that
the conclusion will be almost inevitable
that it will be framed so as to accomplish
the results intended or claimed to be in
tended by both parties, and to this end
democrats and republicans alike should
bend all their energies and lead all that is
best In them to perfecting and passing so
important a piece of legislation."
Warned by Tillman.
There would follow "a cyclone of passion
ate resentment." said Mr. Tillman in pre
dicting what would be the result of failure
on the part of Congress to meet the wide
spread demand for railroad rate legislation.
He declared that "woe will be the har
vest" of any member of the 8enate or
House, whose work in formulating a bill
to regulate railroads tacK# earnestness or
honesty of purpose, and who sh ill seek to
belittle the question or kill the bill by sub
terfuge and deception. The Constitution
gives to Congress the power to regulate the
railroads, he contended, and there are many
wrongs to right.
I The bill as it came from the House Mr.
Tillman characterized as loosely worded
and capable of different Interpretations.
Discussing the alleged inadequacy of the I
measure he said it is "the duty of the
Senate to make such amendments as shall
produce the best possible law md relieve
the distress and wrong, the existence of
which no one will deny. In thus com
menting upon the bill, Mr. Tillman said he
can claim to give expression to no opinion
except his own. The object sought, he
added, best can b eoutlined in the language
of the President in his last annual message
to Congress, and from this the senator
quoted extensively.
Mr. Tillman pointed out that It is gen
erally supposed that the pending measure
embodies the "well-digested views of the
executive and those of his party whose ad
vice lie consents to take."
The Most Important Provision.
After enumerating the essential changes
from the existing laws regulating Interstate
commerce, lie stated that the most Impor
tant is found in section 15. in which power
is sought to be vested in the Interstate
commerce commission "after full hear
I ing upon a complaint ;pade to deter
mine and prescribe what will in Its
; judgment, be the just and reasonable and
fairly remunerative rate ? ? ? to be there
after observed in such case as the maximum
; to be charged." and to make an order that
the same shall go into effect and remain In
force for three years, which order shall
I "go Into effect thirty days after notice to
? the carrier, and shall remain In force and
be obMrved by the carrier, unless the
shall be suspended or modified or set aside
by the commission, or be suspended or set
aside, by a court of competent authority.
Concerning this section Mr. Tillman said:
'Around the first provision the, nv-st
earnest anil exciting contention lias arisen,
and there is great difference of opinion as
to the scope of this clause and the execu
tive powers of the commission under .t.
On the one hand. It Is claimed most posi
tively that Congress cannot delegate Its
powers to the comra'Aion, and thts author
ize It to fix a rate, while on the other hand
it is asserted with equal earnestness and
force that this power is indisputable.
Whatever may he the results of this discus
sion in the Senate, if the till becomes a
law the final determination of the question
at Issue must he made by the Supreme
Court. There if even greater solicitude
upon the Question ufviuOicIal review The
friends of the? proposed legislation are
equally earnest with Its opponents In de
siring to throw every protection around the
billions of capital Invested in railways of
the I'nited States."
Mr. Tillman added that at the same time
the people are demanding relief for pro
ducers and shippers. He declared that It
is the duty of ("onttress to hold an even
balance fretween these conflicting and con
tending interests.
Limiting Court Powers.
Friends of the railroads contend, urged
Mr. Tillman, that Congress cannot limit
the Jurisdiction of the circuit courts, whi'ej
on the other hand, he added, "It is assert
ed with equal emphasis that the power to
create aft courts, other than the Supreme
Court, rests alone in Congress, and that
such courts being statutory are necessa
rily limited in their scope and power by
the authority which creates them "
Ho continued: "I myself incline most
confidently to this view, and have not the
slightest doubt that It is possible to prop
erly amend the bill so as to prohibit the
circuit courts from Interfering with the
orders of the interstate commerce commis
sion by an interlocutory order. As has al
ready been observed in connection with the
power to fix rates, this question also must
be determined by the Supreme Court should
the proposed law be enacted.
"The Senate must determin- by Its vote
what shall be Its attitude upon tire ques
tion? of court review and interlocutory sus
pension*. The whole question at issue as i
to giving relief to the producing interests" |
of the country revolves around this feature
of the bill. If any decision of the Supreme
Court shall declare that Congress Is power
less to grant speedy relief through a com
mission, it needs no prophet to tell that an
outburst of surprise and indignation will
sweep over the country."
Summing up the situation he said:
"It is impossible to deny that this gre^t
accumulation of wealth In the hands of the
few is such a menace to liberty that the
honest patriot stands appalled by the out
Increase in Capitalization.
After commenting at length upon what
he declared to be the existing system of
Juggling with railroad properties "for the
robbery of the masses," Mr. Tillman stated
that this phase of the subject brings into
great prominence and mportance "the rela
tion to Congress of the increase In capitali
zation; whether It Is the purpose of Con
gress to compel the business industries to
pay dividends, not upon the real value ot
these properties, but on the fictitious value
which has been sought to be placed upon
them by the increased capitalization." Con
cerning the application of . the bill to this
subject lie said:
"There is a dangerous provision in this
bill, which. In my Judgment, ought to be
stricken out, and that is in section 15, where
the interstate commerce commission is told
'to determine and prescribe what will. In
Its judgment, be the just and reasonable
and fairly remunerative rate,' etc. The last
words are too elastic and ambiguous and
can be construed to mean too much that it
would be harmful and dangerous for Con
gress to enact Into a law. 'Fairly remun
erative rates' on what: the actual value or
the fictitious value of the properties? Are
railroads which now pay no dividends be
cause of the immense amounts of watered
stock to be allowed to compel the producers
who use their lines to pay a dividend on
the excessive capitaliz ition? Is Congress
willing to lend Itself to the schemes of the
railroad magnates who have brought about
this condition wherein they levy tribute
on the business industries of the country
and compel' the payment of the pound of
Mr. Tillman declared there can b? no
justice in compelling the people as a whole
to pay dividends on watered stock pri
marily to increase the fortunes of men al
ready too rich. He contended that "the
poor dupes" who have been led to invest
the r savings In such stocks can better af
ford to lose those earnings than to have
the labor of the country siddled with the
burden of paying perpetual tribute in the
shape of dividends on dishonest valuations.
"Whatever else Congress does or fails to
do," he added, "the producers of the coun
try 'hould be relieved from such danger of
beinif compelled to make good the values
of over-capitalized railroads as lurks In
this Innocent looking and plausible pro
vision about 'fairly remunerative rates." "
Railway Monopoly Denounced.
Mr. Tillman recommended that amend
ments to the bill be adopted which would
give relief to "the anomalous and out
rageous conditions of affairs disclosed as
| existing In West Virginia."
Continuing lie said: "Vested with the
rights of eminent domain to construct their
lines and granted liberal franchises ami
charters, the railroads, designed to be pub
lic carriers for the benefit of the whole
people, in the last few years have become
rapidly transformed into tire veriest band
of robbers?highwaymen, who do not thrust
their pistols in the faces of their victims
and demand money or their lives, but who
levy tribute in freight rates which are as
high as the traffic will bear, deny access to
market, monopolize with brazen effrontery
one of the prime necessaries of life?coal?
and in every way show their absolute con
tempt for the people and the people's
rights. We should Incorporate In the bill
an amendment which will compel all rail
roads to make connections with any and
every' other railroad and public or private,
and grant just and fair traffic arrange
ments; also a provision to divorce abso
lutely the business of transporting freight
as a public carrier and the business of
producing freight to be transported."
Mr. Tillman closed with "a word of cau
tion to the friends of the proposed legis
lation." He said:
"Our full expectations may not be realized
at the present session of Congress. The
opponents of effective legislation are alert,
have had large experience, and are
thoroughly organized. The demand of the
people for relief from the oppressions and
wrongs tl y now endure may be thwarted
by the great Influence of the railroad cor
porations. This Influence has hitherto been
paramount, and its representatives in the
two houses may feel It Is safe to refuse
to redress the grievances and to continue
the policy of non-interference. They may
ignore popular clamor and either pass no
bill at all or enact one that will prove
wholly Inadequate. They may palter with
us In "a double sense:
Keep the wold of promise to the ear
And break it to the hope.
"Such action on their part, will. In my
Judgment, be very unwise, and will only dam
up the water. The Issue will be made the
paramount one In the next election, and
those who are responsible for delay or In
adequate legislation will find that wl\ri at
last the flood gates of popular wrath and
Indignation are hoisted there will be some
fine grinding done. If those most Inter
ested In these great properties will not con
sent to wise legislation to relieve the dis
tress of the oeople there is danger of more
radical policies and leaders conwtig to the
front, with the result that legfslatlon far
more drnstic and dangerous than anything
proposed In this bill and the amendments
to be offered will be enacted."
