On the* outcome of arguments today J before the Supreme Court of the United States depends the proposed punishment of the mayor and certain citizens of Clay Center. Kan., for contempt. Only once ifi recent yearn has such a question been raised in the highest tribunal of the land. That u as when Sheriff Shipp of Chatta nooga, Tenn , and others were sent to jail for failure to protect a federal pris oner from lynching. It Is alleged that Mayor George W. Hanna and others cut down poles of an electric light plant in Clay Center after a decision had been rendered by the Supreme Court of the I'nited States favorable In efTect to the city's right to erect its own light plant, but before the couft had issued its mandate in the case and before the opposite aide had had an opportunity to apply for a rehearing. Today the mayor and his fellow-citi zens. some of them members of the city council, were cited to show cause why they should not be held In contempt.

LIVELY tilts mark meeting. ? I Charges Declared to Be the Same Old Ones Exploded Two Tears Ago. The present public school system of the District of Columbia was approved by the public school committee of the Board of Trade at a meeting of the committee last night. Charges which had been made against the school system and the board of education were declared by the committee to be unfounded. The committee adopted a resolution providing for the appointment of a sub committee of five to investigate the con ditions in the schools with a view to im proving the system and giving the board of education more power. President James F. Oyster of the board of education, and Superintendent of Pub lic Schools Stuart appeared before the committee last night and answered the charges which had been made against the school system. In the opinion of the majority of the committee the replies made by the school authorities were ample and the charges were tabled. Quality of Desks Questioned. There was one exception, however?new matter which was laid before the com mittee last night. It was charged that during the last four years the furniture provided for the schools, with the excep tion of two rooms, had not measured up to specifications. Snowden Ashford, mu nicipal architect, and Herbert F. D. Allen, chief accusers of the public school sys tem, declared that instead of receiving mapie desks, desks of other and less ex pensive woous had been received and cer tified to as maple. They ueclared tuat they had the opinion ol experts of tne forest service on this matter. Capt. Oys ter and Supt. Stuart replied that the fur niture hau been examined by a commit tee for the school board when received and reported upon. They said that there were no experts on the committee, but practical- men. The committee decided that this charge should be sifted, and if furniture whicu was being furnished the schoois was be low the specifications a report of the matter should be made to tne Board or Trade. A resolution calling for a com mittee Of three to make this investiga tion was appointed. . , . A letter irom tne furniture dealer who supplied the desks was read stating that so tar as he knew the desks had been up to specitications and that lie would take the matter up with the manufactuiei. Discussion Is Spirited. The meeting lasted nearly four hours and was marked by many tilts between the school officials and the critics of the school system, and between members of the committee. Mr. Ashford declared that the charges of inefficiency and lack of economy against the school system had been deemed so serious and so clear ly proved that President Taft in his me - sage to Congress last December had recommended that the system be ChB?i5nard H. Warner, a member of the committee, asked Mr Ashford If it were not true that the charges and informa tion upon which the President had based his message had 'filtered President" from Mr. Ashford himself. Mr. Ashford denied that this was true, but being pressed still farther by Mr. Warner, said that the matter was laid before the President by the engineer Commissioner of the District. _ _ "And you supplied the engineer Com missioner with the data," said Mr. gar ner. "We may draw our own infer G1Ca2t. Oyster charged Mr. Ashford with getting his information against the school system by "housebreaking methqds and by entering the schools through their k^his^was hotly denied by Mr. Ashford, whJ saTd that he had not been able to obtain the information which he desired from the board of education and had therefore made investigations for himself, as any citizen of the District was entitled to do, the schools being open to all. Calls Charges Old. At the conclusion of a lengthy state ment in reply to the charges of Mr. Ash ford and Mr. Allen made by Supt. Stuart, Judge Charles S. Bundy declared when he heard charges were made against the school system, that he thought there was something new to be investi gated by the school committee of the Board of trade, but that the reply made by the school officials had proved that these charges were the "same o.d exploded charges made two years aso brought here to create a panic in the District over school matters. He said that these identical charges and identical answers had been acted upon by the Board of Trade two years ago and that he did not believe it worth while to take up any further time with them. Mr \shford made the statement that no "charges" had been preferred against the board of education or any of its mem bers. He said that the matter before i the committee was the consideration of a report made by a subcommittee of the 1 public school committee of the Board of Trade appointed to look into school af 'a"Thif? is the first Intimation that I have had of that fact," declared Aldis B. Browne, chairman of the committee. "I was under Hie impression at the meeting of the committee a week ago that we were considering charges made against the school system by Mr. Ashford." Didn't Know of Report. "Who signed the report of the subcom mittee?" Mr. Warner demanded. "I am a member of the subcommittee, but this Is the first I have heard of such a re port." A motion was made by Dr. Arthur T. Ramsay to lay the resolution offered by Mr. Allen, asking the approval of the subcommittee's report upon the table. It was evident that it was about to be car ried but a plea by Mr. Allen that he be allowed to cross-examine Mr. Stuart upon his statement to the committee was allowed and the meeting dragged on for two more hours before the action declar ing charges unfounded was taken. The members of the committee who at tended the meeting were A. B. Browne, chairman; Herbert F. L>. Allen. Walter W. Acker. Snowden Ashford. S. I. Bes selievre, Charles Bundy, J. D. Carmody, Isaac Gans. A. I>i?ner, -Mrs. I. G. Myers, A. T. Ramsay, Henry K. Simpson, Mrs. C. B. Stephen. B. H. Warner. F. J. White head, Joseph I. Weller and Charles Yoder. OBJECT TO RAILROAD RATES. Commissions of JOhio, Indiana and Michigan Have Filed Complaints. The railroad commissions of Ohio, In diana and Michigan have filed complaints with the interstate commerce commission alleging inadequate classification of freight resulting In discrimination of rates and an obstacle to the simplification of railroad tariffs by various railroads op erating in their sections. It is declared that by reason of the weight, bulk and value of commodities the present six classes of freight so desig nated are inadequate and insufficient to provide reasonable and Just relative rat ings for all the different kinds of prop erty offered for transportation.
