Supreme Court Revises Pro
cedure at Federal Bars.
Reduction in the Cost of Litigation
Also Is an Object.
Chief Justice White Explains Abro
gation of Pleading Forms?Elim
ination of Referees Provided.
Revolutionary changes in procedure in
equity cases in federal courts throughout
the 1'nited States are effected in revised
rules promulgated today by the Supreme
Court of the 1'nited States. The object
is to reduce the cost of litigation and
to eliminate delays.
The new rules were announced by Chief
Justice White from the bench. One of
the fasks undertaken by him when he
was appointed chief justice was to re
form procedure in the courts. He first
revised the rules of the Supreme Court j
itself. This is the second revision put
into force.
At Work Seventeen Months.
For seventeen months the Chief Jus
tice and Justices Lurton and Vande
vanter have been working on the
equity rules as a subcommittee of the
court. They asked every federal judge
throughout the country to get expres
sions from their respective bar associa
tions on the subject, and wrote to
many others asking for suggestions.
These suggestions were collated and
digested by W. J. Hughes of the De
partment of Justice by the subcommit
tee. The present rules came down as
a heritage from the courts of England,
with one or two revisions, since tne
beginning of the republic. The last
revision was about fifty years ago.
The Chief Justice particularly tnankeel
the lord chance.lor of England for sug
gestions in the revision.
Chief Justice White in orally explain
ing the ruies from the bench grouped
the reforms under four heads. The nrst
was in regard to t:ie exercise of power
by the federal courts in equitable mat
Pleading Forms Simplified.
The second was in regard to the modes
of pleading, and was described as be.ng
designed primarily to remove all unnec?
es.-arv steps and to bring the parties
quickly to the issue.
Tne old, time-honored forms of plead
ings. the Chief Justice said, had been abro
gated so far as it was Within the power
of the court to do so, and the most ad
vanced and simplified forms substituted,
such as now exist in New York and other
code states and in tne chancery courts of
The third reform was described as
being a restriction in the modes of tak
ing testimony, particularly in patent
and copyright cases In regard to ex
pert testimony. "The whole intention
has been," said the Chief Justice, "to
bring the taking of testimony down to
a more simplified and inexpensive
Aim to Eliminate Referees.
Another reform was said by the
Chief Justice to be illustrated by the
statement that the new rules as a
general thing provide for trial by the
court instead of a reference of the
suit to a referee to take the testimony
and report back to the court.
The last reform spoken of was in re
gard to diminishing the size of records!
by which suits are taken from the tr'al
court to appellate courts for review
by providing ruies for compelling the re
duction of their size and by excluding
documents and requiring testimony to he
printed in narrative instead of interroga
tory form. The Chief Justice said that the
rules would make it possible for the
appellate court not to reverse suits mere
ly because of errors not prejudicial.
Among new rules of procedure an
nounced by the Supreme Court today, is
oiu' not referred to by Chief Justice
White in his explanation from the bench,
winch would prohibit issue of preliminary
injunctions without notice to the opposite
party and also restricting issues of tem
porary restraining orders.
Tne ruies will go into effect February

Vote of the Women May Disappoint

SAN FRANCISCO, November 4.?Cali
fornia women, voting for the first time

quantity in tomorrow's election. The
huge registration in Ix>9 Angeles county?

that more women in the southern than
in the northern counties are taking ad

Special Weather Bulletin.
'hi Tuesday the indications are
that the weather will be generally
fair throughout tlve Atlantic states,
the southern states, the Mississippi
and lower Ohio valleys, the plains
states and the far southwest: in
the region of the great lakes, the
upper Ohio valley, northern New
York and northern New England
the weather will be cloudy, but
probably without precipitation; in
western Montana, western Wyo
ming and Idaho then- will be rain
or snow; rain is a probable in
W ashington, Oregon and extreme
northern California. Temperatures '
will be moderate for the season in
practically all parts of the coun
try on Tuesday.
Chief I". S. Weather Bureau.
Fair weather for election day is prom
ised for the greater part of the United
States, in the weekly forecast issued to
day by the weather bureau. The only
pronounced disturbance in the country
is central west of the Rocky mountains
and is moving eastward. It is preceded by
rising temperatures that probably will
cause warmer weather today and to
morrow throughout the eastern and
southern states.
The bad weather attending the dis
turbance in the intermountain regions
is due to reach the great central valleys!
Wednesday, and will make its appearance
in the east Wednesday night or Thursday, i
It probably will be attended by local'
rain or snow in the northern part of the
country and rain in the southern states.
The country from the Missouri river
east, however, including all the states
east of Kansas and Nebraska, in all
probability will enjoy fair weather to
morrow, with seasonal autumn temper
Cold Wave Anticipated.
Following the disturbance due in this
part of -the country Wednesday night or
Thursday, a cold wave is looxed for. The
wintry temperatures will come from the
Medicine Hat region in the far northwest,
where they will make their appearance
Wednesday or Thursday, and from where
they will rapidly extend eastward. Fol
lowed immediately by a storm that is due
to reach the northern Pacific states Wed
nesday, the disturbance Is due to reach
the eastern part of the country toward
the end of the week, and a change to de
cidedly colder weather will follow this
In and about Washington today and to
morrow it will be generally fair, with ris
ing temperature. This kind of weather
is expected to prevail, over the District,
Virginia, Maryland. Delaware and neigh
boring states.
Ice in Exposed Places.
For the first time this season the tem
perature last night fell below the freez
ing point and thin ice made its appear
ance in exposed places. Four Mile run,
between this city and Alexandria, was
ice covered this morning except in the
deepest part of the run, where the water
was swiftest.
To the cold weather of last night is due
the first heavy fog of the season. Those
who were awake early this morning found
the mist clouds covering, the streets up
town. In the river section of the city
these clouds were vel* thick. Until long
after sunrise the steamers on the river
were sounding signals, and at lo o'clock
the mist could be seen arising from the
water, warmer than the air.
Encouraging Telegrams and
Letters Take Several
Hours to Handle.
? Encouraging telegrams and letters were
Plentiful at the White House today.
" Tommy" Brahany, assistant secretary to
the President, spent several hours going
over these epistles and making such dis
position of them as was deemed best.
Mixed with the strictly political telegrams
was one that touched the human side and
caused merriment. It was from Dennl
son, Tex., and told of the birth of trip
lets, boys, to Mr. and Mrs. Kyler of that
place. The father and mother promptly
named the three juveniles William How
ard Kyler, Theodore Roosevelt Kyler and
Woodrow Wilson Kyler
Rev. John Wesley Hill of New York
wired the White House that he had spent
three weeks campaigning in Oh.o and he
felt "justified in prophesying that the
state will give its electoral vote to Tart."
F. C. Nunnemacher, who has been in
charge of the wage-earners' exhibit in
New York for the republican national
committee, telegraphed that If the words
of wage-earners who had visited the ex
hibit are an indication of the ou come to
morrow "you will carry New York city
as surely as anything."
Ex-Senator William E. Mason of Illi

sent word that he had just returned from
a trip through the congressional district
of Representative Rodenberg, the East
St. Louis district, and was willing to pre

Accuses Republican leaders I
of Trying to Turn Voters
to Wilson's Support.
OYSTER BAY. X. Y., November 4.?
In a statement issued here today Theo
dore Roosevelt charged that republican
leaders were advising their followers
to vote for Woodrow Wilson if they
did not f?el that they could support
President Taft. The great concern of
the "bosses," the colonel said, was to
beat the progressive party.
The colonel's statement follows:
"Several gentlemen have told me that
certain of the lesser bosses who are
Mr. Baraes' henchmen?Mr. Abe Gruber,
for instance?have recently been puln
licly advising their hearers to vote
the democratic ticket if they didn't
feel like voting the republican ticket
This is interesting as a fresh proof of
how close and intimate the alliance is
between the machines if they can only
beat the progressives."
"Mr. Gruber's attitude merely illustrates
what had already been shown by the
conduct of Messrs. Penrose, Barnes and
Crane and the other republican bosses
!n New Jersey, Illinois and Indiana, pre
cisely as in Kansas. California and Ore
g6n, that they had not the slightest ex
pectation of winning this election and tbat
their one purpose is directly or indirectly
to aid the democrats in order that the
progressives may be beaten.
"The financiers and bosses of this type
are really non-partisan in their feeling.
The men mentioned are nominally re
publican in their feelings, but they know
they can always maKe terms with tlie
corresponding bosses in the democratic
party. If they cannot keep their own
party under their control and" at the same
time in control of the nation, then the
next best thing, from theh- standpoint
is to put the democratic bosses in control
j of the nation.
"When tlie Abe Grubers, without re
gard to party, are both ready and eager
to support either of the old parties in
order to beat the progressive movement,
then it Is surely time for all honest and
decent citizens, without regard to their
past political affllitiations, to support the
progressive party.
"This is in no ordinary sense of the
word a mere partisan movement. It is j
a movement for honesty anrl decency and i
for fair play in the world of Industry I
! no less than in the world of politics, and |
we have the right to appeal to all citi
zens to support it."

Relatives Give Skin to Complete Cure

CHICAGO. HI., November 4.-Miss Ethel

the crippled Gary, Ind., newsboy gave up

Brought About by Suit.
The establishment of through car serv
ice between Somerset and the downtown

through the suit filed by R. H. McNeill
to compel the Washington Railway and
Electric Company to furnish such service.
The announcement of the through
ice is contained in the following
from tiie Washington Railway and Elec

commerce commission toda> :
"The boards of directors of the W asn

Operating Difficulties.
"Owing to the unusual difficulties at
tending the operation of these throueh
cars, we anticipate that for a time at
least we will not he able to maintain the
regularity of service that mi^ht, undei
other conditions, be reasonably expected.
We hope, however, that within a short
time we will be able to eliminate all
operating difficulties, except such as are
inherent to the situation and which ex
perience mav prove cannot be overcome.
"Ail Rockville cars will be operated, as
heretofore, to Wisconsin avenue and M

Demands of Victors.
] Tie Balkan nations and Greece are
| persistent in their determination that
i Turkey must a nance directly with them
; the terms of pea c, without the interven
? tion of the European powers. This atti
1 tude is emphasized in a statement fro.u
official sources wiiich says:
"The Turkish proposal of peace is sat
isfactory in so fur as it shows a desiri
to prevent further lloodsned. As regards
foreign intervention, however, there
seems to be no chance of the Balkan
states listening to any foreign counsels
while treating for the arrangement of
conditions of peace. These must be set
tled between the Balkan states and Tur
key direct.
"It may at this stage be declared thai
the whole campaign was prearranged and
has so far been carried out entirely in
accordance with the program. For a con
siderable time an officer of the Greek
military stall. Col. Dousmanis, was en
gaged at Sotia pre|>aring the military,
while ihe political program was largely,
if not entirely, the work of Premier Veni
zelos of Greece.
Balkan Union Close.
"The union of tiie Balkan states at this
j moment is more close, hearty and infi
inate than it ever has been, for it has
i been welded by blood and common sac
rifice. There is not the least danger that
any disagreement as to the div.sion of
territories or the positions of the frontiers
will disturb it. It may be assumed thai,
inasmuch as the details of the campaign
were arranged with the greatest carc, the
same procedure will 1m? followed both
as to-the conclusion of hostilities and
subsequent political considerations."
Those powers thus tar consulted have
responded to Turkey's appeal for medi
ation by declaring they could not make
| any proposals for peace, and could not
i approach the Balkan nations with a
request for an armistice.
I Some of the governments have pointed
j out that Turkey s proposal for a ces

i an armistice?would offend the Baika l
! victors. Other governments take tne
position that it would be an infringe

The negotiations which were taking
place among the powers when Turkey

on the preliminaries for an offer of me
