In *he suit of the Baltimore and Ohio Southwestern Railroad Company and the Norfolk and Western Railway Company, ordered by the interstate commerce com mission to install track connections in southern Ohio to the Cincinnati and Columbus Traction Company, an electric interurban line, the Supreme Court, of the United States, yesterday, speak ing through Justice Holmes, cau tioned the commerce commission against issuing orders based on investigation rather than on the verdict of a jury. The commission held that the interur ban road was a "lateral branch line, of railroad," within the meaning of the law. the steam lines appealing to the com merce court, which reversed the commis sion's decision. The Supreme Court up held the commerce court. Justice Holmes, in handing down the decision, stated: "We remark that the commission stated in its report that it based its conclusion more largely upon their own investiga tion than upon the testimony of witness es," said Justice Holmes. "It would be a very strong proposition to say that the parties would be bound in the higher courts by a finding based on specific in vestigations made in the cases without notice to them. Such an investigation is quite different from a view by a jury taken with notice and subject to the order of a court, and different again from the question of the right of the commission to take notice of results reached by it in other cases, when its doing so is made a part of the record, and the facts thus noticed are specified, so that matters of law are saved." The court did not pass upon the ques tion of the power of the commission to require steam roads to grant connections with electric lines as such. Court Without Jurisdiction. The appeal of John F. Hanson, an at torney, from a sentence for contempt im posed by the probate court of McPherson county, Kansas, the Supreme Court held it was without jurisdiction. The contempt proceedings arose out of the attorney's refusal to answer questions at a probate hearing. The court also dismissed for want of jurisdiction the suit of the National Tele phone Manufacturing Company of New Hampshire for $500,000 damages against the American Bell Telephone Company of Massachusetts. The lower court had found against the New Hampshire con cern. which asked damages on account of alleged malicious prosecution. The court also dismissed the appeal of Archbishop Harty of the Catholic Church from the decision of the supreme court of the Philippines, vesting in the municil palitv of Victoria, instead of in the church, the title to the public plaza of that place. No discussion of the rela tions between church and state in the Philippines entered into the decision. SPEED IN SHIP BUILDING. New York Navy Yard Smashes Traditions on Big Battleship. The tradition regarding the slowness of navy yard work has been smashed by tlie New York navy yard in the construc tion of the big battleship New York. The progress report just issued shows that the work on that vessel has been ad vancing almost twice as fast as on simi lar ships in the hands of private ship building concerns. November 1 the New York stood advanced toward com pletion, which was a gain of more than 3 per cent for. the month of October. The construction of the three other dreadnoughts, Texas, Nevada and Okla liome, advanced during the same period about 1% per cent. The construction of the ten destroyers now under way drag ged during October, about four points be ing the highest record in the case of any of them. The same statement applies to the fourteen submarines now building. Will Discuss Children's Bureau. Miss Julia Lathrop, chief of the new children's bureau of tlie Department of Commeree and Labor, will address the National Federation of Women's Clubs tomorrow at their gathering at Aurora, 111. She leaves Washington today. She will make several speeches in Michigan and Tennessee before returning to Washington. Her subject will be the work of the new children's bureau.
