: In the arrest of Agnes Mower of
Bridgeport by Sergeant Dennehy . yes
terday for theft of money and rings
from her hostess In this city. A most
Important theft committed some time
ago by the same girl was brought to
light Agnes Mower, who ia eighteen
years of age, formerly resided with
her mother at 324 Crown street, in this
city, but for the past few weeks they
have lived at 261 Fairfield1 avenue,
BrideeDort.
Last Tuesday the girl came to this
city visiting Mrs. Peet,!the mother of a
eirl friend of hers at '-14 Congress ave
nue. Here she passed the night. Early
in the morning Mrs. ''Peet heard some
one rummaging about the house but
thought It was her daughter and did
not investigate. "When she arose at
7:30 o'clock she missed the sum of $3
In cash and later found that five rings
valued at $54 were also missing.
, Mrs. Peet reported the loss to the de
tective department . Wednesday noon
and Sergeant Dennehy was detailed to
Investigate the case. The girl mean
while had departed leaving, the money
and "Hris-a.' however.. In keeping of Mrs.
Peet's daughter, Florence, a girl about
her own age. A warrant was Issued
nr thet erlrl'a arrest. ''-'
Then the detective bureau received a
letter from Detective Captain George
H. Arnold of Bridgeport stating that
he erlrl's mother had reported her d'is-
eRpearance and had asked the police to
helD find her. The help or tne locai.po
Hoe was asked as it was thought the
iHr! mnle-ht have come here.
Then It was learned that the Mower
girl had lived with Dr. E. K. Roberts
of 244 Grand avenue. During ner stay
there a considerable amount of jewelry
valued at 109 disappeared, tut nothing
resulted from It. .
Sergeant Dennehy went to Bridgeport
to look for the girl. He learned that
on Thursday afternoon she had taken a
box at a theater there. Then a3 he
was walking along Main street he saw
a girt standing at State and Main
streets answering the description of the
girl wanted. The sergeant addressed
her by name, which she straightway
denied, but' the sergeant soon induced
her to give In. She was brought to this
city and is held on two counts of theft,
one that from Mrs. Peet, the other from
Mrs. Roberts. Mrs. Roberts lost a gold
watch, two diamond rings with opal
center, $10 mileage book, $10 In money
and a ruby ring. The girl confessed
the theft of these and has told the ser
geant where the rings were pawned in
Bridgeport. Thy will be recovered. The
watoh she sent to a store on Meadow
street, where the works were found.
The case had been melted.

OIL IN HIT BACK.
(Continued from First Page.)
face of violent hostility on the part o
the railroads, .which naturally were op
posed to the introduction of euch means
of transportation. At enormous cost,
and in the face of steadfast railway op
position, at an early date, the Standard'
Oil company adopted the pipe-'une
method for handling crude petroleum.
The first "line was extended from tne
Western Pennsylvania oil fields to Ber
gen Point, on the Atlantic coast This
line diverted an enormous amount or.
freight from the railroad companies,
which fact they did not view wttn
complacency.
"Passing from this point, Commis
sioner Garfield takes up the question
of favoritism which he alleges has been
shown by various railroad corporations
to the Standard Oil company . The first
specific case of alleged discrimination
to which he directs attention is in the
New England1 territory. It is charged
that we formed a monopoly , in certain
parts of that section because some of
the railroads tnere retusea to proranj,
The man who could be deceived toy such
a statement must be pretty dense.
First, .if the New England roads ought
to prorate, but refuse to do so it must
occur to some one, somewhere that per
haps the New England roads and not
the Standard Oil company are blame
able. Second, a very casual Inquiry
would show that the New England
roads are simply doing what they are
forced to do by natural conditions, and
that Mr. Garfield's attack to be effec
tive, should be directed at Long Island
sound as a means of freight communi
cation. Obviously we have an advant
age by the use of our own pipe lines
from the western-oil fields, to the coast
and the use of water transportation
thence to New England over any one
who uses all rail transportation from
western points. , But this advantage is
one which dt is hot possible to correct
by any rate legislation unless It Is
proposed to bankrupt the railroads in
order to meet water competition. Yet
we are not alone in this method of
transportation. Some, of our competi
tors do the same thing and deliver oil
at fhe points In-New England that we
do by the same process.
"Mr. Garfield claims that the refusal
to prorate on the part of the New Eng
land railroads has given the Standard
Oil company practically control of New
England territory and ' enabled it to
maintain exorbitant prices for kero
sene. Yet while it is admitted that
the New Haven road has recently be
gun to prorate, this alleged condition
of control has not changed Jn any way
nor have the prices of kerosene been af
fected. The New England roads be
lieve they can make more money by a
refusal to prorate and if in doing so
they are violating theproprieties, clear
ly they and not the Standard Oil com
pany should be made the obpect of at
tack. , ,,. , s
"The commissioner is particularly un
fortunate on the subject of 'rebates.'
The public may well tak'e his word that
he made an exhaustive examination
and yet withal he says that 'with one
or two exceptions the Investigations
of the bureau have as yet discovered no
rebates in the technical sense on inter
state business. These exceptiims were,
on business done wholly within the
state of California, over which, of
course, neither Mr.. Garfield's bureau
nor the interstate commerce commis
sion have any jurisdiction. But in
those cases the alleged rebates were
fully explained to Mr. Garfield and In
volved no turpitude, however. It was a
new business, of the Pacific coast and
be'fore it had been systematized there
were 'overcharges, not to the Standard
Oil company alone but to everyone en
gaged In the enterprise, which over
charges were subsequently adjusted.
"He says the Standard Oil company
has habitually received from the rail
roads and Is now receiving 'secret'
rates and other unjust and illegal dis
criminations. It is hardly fair 'or man
ly for him to add the sentence: 'Of
course there may be other secret rates
which the 'bureau has not dlseoverd.'
"In dealing with the discriminations
which are alleged to be violations of the
interstate commerce law the plain an
swer is that if Mr. Garfield's state
merit Is correct It Was the duty of the
interstate commerce commission to
have taken action and brought not
alone the Standard Oil company but
the railway companies involved to book
and this they have never done. Viola
tions of the law in this respect do not
fall within the Jurisdiction of the bu
reau of corporations, and any state
ment on the part of Mr. Garfield re
specting this subject is gratuitous and
valueless.
"Again, he has no control whatever
over state rates, which by the law are
put under the jurisdiction of the state
authorities and over which the bureau
of commerce nor the Interstate com
merce commission have any control.
But -with all this aside there have been
no secret rates nor unlawful discrim
inations In the Interest of the Standard
Oil company. Take the case of the
rate from Whiting to East St. Louis,
upon which he lays so much stress.
While discussing it at great length In
an important 'find' he qualifies and ex
plains It all by the statement that
Whiting was a suburb of Chicago with-
In the 'switching district' of that city
and that all freight rates from Whiting
had for many years been the same as
those from Chicago.
"This practice had obtained for twen
ty years and had applied to all kinds of
merchandise and to say that a rate
that has been used thus freely and open
ly ior mat period oy everyone was a
'secret' rate is manifestly unfair. More.
over, our oil 'efinery is the only one
at Whiting or within one hundred
miles of it, so that this so-called dis
crimination clearly could not have
worked any harm to any competotor
shipping oil from Whiting or Its vicin
ity. t "Mr. Garfield's claim that by the use
of low Interstate rates the Standard Oil
company gained an unfair advantage is
equally unfortunate. At great expense
we constructed pipe lines from the
Pennsylvania under Ohio oil fields and
from the Kansas and Indian territory
oil fields to Whiting. If our competi
tors did not do the same thing shall it
be said that any one is unfair who does
not give them the advantage of this en
terprise of ours? It is quite true that
, having our oil at Whiting, and desiring
'to transport it to points in the Interior
Jc-f Illinois, we .used the state rates. To
say that a man in Ohio who had never
expanded a dollar for a pipe line to
Whiting should be able to transport his
oil to an inland town in Illinois over an
all-rail line at the same rates that we
enjoyed by reason of ' our pipe lines
must appear absurd to any one. Are
we to have no advantage because we
constructed these pipe, lines? - Is the
amount invested and the interest on
that investment to count for nothing?
Take two i men going to Boston; pne
uses an eight-thousand-dollar automo
bile to go to New London and there
takes the train. Is he ta have no ad
vantage in rate from the man who
leaves New York and travels all the
way by rail?
"The case of a shipment from New
York to Vermont of which mention is
made is susceptible of like explanation.
'''Respecting the use of private cars,
of which Mr. Garfield makes much, it is
only necessary to make answer in his
own words. He says that, owing to the
relatively slow movement of tank cars
in the petroleum trade, the mileage al
lowance or rental does not appear to re
sult in an excessive profit to the pri
vate tank-car owners.
"It is asserted over and over again in
the report that the Standard Oil com
pany profited by 'secret' and 'unlawful'
freight rates. Yet in the same connec
tion It is admitted In the report that
all of these rates are covered by tariffs
filed with the interstate commerce com
mission, precisely as the law provides,
and therefore cannot be either 'secret'
or 'unlawful.'
"The commissioner uses the curious
phrase at one point in his report that
'although a tariff or a rate has been
filed with the (interstate) commission
in compliance with the terms of the
law, none but the favored shipper may
know of its existence.' As the inter
state law explicitly provides that every
tariff rate so filed must be posted at
every freight station and ope.a to in
spection of every shipper, it is hard to
conceive of the commissioner's temerity
in making such an utterance.
"The president's message complains
of 'the way in which the law is evaded
by treating as state commerce what Is
irt reality merely a part of Interstate
commerce, although the forms of law
may be complide with.' Yet this very
method of making a through rate by a
combination of two separate state rates
has been held to be by the interstate
commerce commission lawful and
proper.
"The statement that the 'Standard Oil
company has largely by unfair and un
lawful methods crushed out home com
petition' is fully answered by the fact
that home competition has always ex
isted, is steadily growing, and that
there are now at least 125 competitive
refineries in the United States.
"As to the claim that changes in
rates have been made since the commis
sioner's efficient work began, all the
Standard- Oil company has to say Is
that any such changes have been made
without Its suggestion or effort. ;
"The grief which the president ex
presses in his message over the inabil
ity of the railroads to combine and pro
tect themselves from the shippers will
probably arouse amusement The pres
ident says respecting this Investigation
that the facts are not In dispute; only
the Inferences are disputed. The Stand
ard Oil .company furnished the facts,
and a man with a muck rake dug out
such as under his manipulation he felt
would prove damaging.
"The Standard Oil company has been
Investigated over and over again at the
instigation of its rivals, .and It always
Women in Our Hospitals
Appalling Increases in the Number of Operations
Performed Each Year How Women May
Avoid Them.
Going through the hospitals in our
large cities one is surprised to find such
a large proportion of the patients lying
on those snow-white beds women
and girls,-who are either awaiting
or recovering from serions operations.
Why should this be the case ? Sim
ply because they have neglected them
selves. Female troubles are certainly
on the increase among the women of
this country they creep upon them
unawares, but every one of those
patients in the hospital beds had plenty
of warning in that bearing-down feel
ing, pain at left or right of the abdomen,
nervous exhaustion, pain in the small
of the back, dizziness, flatulency, dis
placements of the organs or irregular
ities. All of these symptoms are indi
cations of an unhealthy condition of
the female organs, and if not heeded
the penalty has to be paid by a danger
ous operation. When these symptoms
manifest themselves, do not drag along
until you are obliged to go to the hos
pital and submit to an operation
but remember that Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound has saved
thousands of women from surgical
operations.
When women are troubled with ir

there is one tried and true remedy.

SEVEN INDICTMENTS IN
SUGAR REBATING CASES
(Continued from First Page.)
''Thesedlmcultiesnecessarilynmit
the number of cases in which any
grand. jury can,, within its term of ,of
flve, sift the evidence down to the point
of preparing and , finding Indictments.
But the evidence thus investigated by
us hearing upon the indictments which
we have found his incidentally revealed
to us the probable existence of so many
cother instances of similar offences, as
to indicate a general and systematic
policy, pursued by certain large ship
pers, of extorting from the different
railroad companies favors the legality
of which is at lease questionable. The
evidence before us has related mainly
to shipments of sugar-from various re
fineries in this locality to western
markets. ;
"In addition to the cases in which in
dictments have been handed down, this
evidence has indicated that " rebates
have been regularly give nto sugar re
fineries and their customers by several
other interstate lines; that a regular
allowance of two cents per 100 pounds
has been made by various railroad com
panies to sugar refineries to cover al
leged cartage, an allowance, which
though usually published In the tariffs,
often represents no labor actually per
formed and which Is not made to other
shippers of similar commodities; . and
that other special favors of various
kinds have been regularly made in re
gard to sugar shipments either to the
refineries themselves or, to their officers
or agents engaged in subsidiary busi
ness, like lighterage. . The evidence be
fore us has shown, dearly in several In
stances and has indicated it to be a
fact quite generally that the Elklns law
as to the giving of rebates has been
disregarded since the day of its enact
ment. '
"We fully appreciate that the difncul
edties of investigation heretofore men
tioned and the skilful devices under
which discrimination" Is oftn veiled
may render detection and proof of this
class of crime difficult and well night
lm.posslb.le in spite of conscientious and
untiling 'effort of the port of prosecut
ing, officers and federal grafcd juries.
Nevertheless we deem it our duty to
'call the attention i ofc this honorable
cour.t andl "the succeeding grand juries
to tie great public importance of a
continued investigation into the etate
of facts upon which the Indictments
herewith submitted are based,, to the
end that further Indictments of a like
nature may be found and other steps
taken to mintage the evils which 'we
'believe to be generally prevalent and
whlch'eause great injury .and oppres
sion to small v shippers , thus denied
equal access to markets In interstate
commerce." ' , "'.

Dear Mrs. Pinkham:
" I have been a great sufferer with irregular
periods and female trouble, and about three
months ago the doctor, after using the X-Hay

to have an operation. My mother wanted
me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable

saved me from an operation but made me en
tirely well."
Mrs. Alice Berryhill, of 818 Boyce

Dear Mrs. rinkham: '
"Three years ago life looked dark to me.
I had ulceration and Inflammation of the
female organs and was in a serious condition.
' My health was completely broken down
and the doctor told me that if I was not op
erated upon I would die within six months.
I told him I would have no operation but
would try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. He tried to influence me against
It but I sent for the medicine that same day
and began to use it faithfully. Within five
days I felt relief but was not entirely cured
until I used it for ome time.
" Your medicine Is certainly fine. I have
induced several friends and neighbors to take
it and I know more than a dozen who had
female troubles and who to-day are as well
and strong as I am from using your Vege

FIRE APPARATUS CLASH.
CHIEF'S CARRIAGE BADLY SHA T
TERED BY COLLISION,
Ch em lean and the Carriage Come To

Court 'streets Record in Engine
House Registered the Wrong Box
Chemical Would Not Have Responded
to Actual Alarm Carriage Was Going
Across State Street toGct Chief Car
Blocked View.
A very serious j accident, narrowly
averted, was the indirect result of the
accidental recording of a wrong alarm
in the Olive street engine house last
evening. About 8 o'clock an alarm of
fire was sent in from box 132 at How
ard avenue and Sea street. By a mis
take in the automatic recorder on the
Olive street company's circuit the alarm
was registered at 122- Chemical No. 1
responds to the latter box, but not the
former. Accordingly the chemical hast
ened out. The apparatus dashed over
Grand avenue into State street and
started up the street. .
James Maher, the relief driver of the
fire chief's carriage, dashed his carriage
up Court street to call for the chief at
headquarters. The chief's carriage and
the chemical reached the corner at the
same time, but a trolley car blocked the
view and neither driver sawnor heard
the other until the two collided at full
ispeed. The chemical struck the shafts
of the chief's carriage and snapped
them, like toothpicks. Maher, the driv
er, was thrown to the street 'but es
caped With a slight leg bruise. One
horse on each apparatus went down
but neither were Injured.
Besides breaking the shafts , of the
chief's carriage the collision broke the
forward spring. The chemical proceed
ed on its way after a considerable delay
only to find that the wrong box had
been registered.
A great crowd assembled at the scene
Of the accident, and all were surprised
that the collision had not resulted more
seriously. It happened that the chief
did not intend to go to the fire so that
the demolition of his carriage did not
Interfere with his work.'
The actual fire was in the house at 70
Sea .street, owned by Ambrose Bradley
and occupied , by William . L Morrell.
The fire was In a-closet. It destroyed
some clothing but otherwise did little
damage. . 1 ,
