The Tl e X New ew York ork Senator Sena tor wishe d to
know k know 10W particularly about the validity of
reveiatlons re e ations alleged to come < ome direct from
God to the head of of the church
Witness Stephens tc phensshowed showed a disposition
to regard lightly lightJtht lighti the claim that such suc b
revelations s same came ame from the Deity Deft Instead
he intimated his view i > w that the people
usually decided voha what t the they wanted in the
avay jva of r arcvcJation a revelation and an d that then the
revelation yclation was announc announced < d promptly as
having l1avingcome come to tc the head of the church
Summarizing this view the witness de ¬
clared dared that usually it was the idea of
Vox populi vex ex dei dcithdt that the voice olce of
the people Is thereby inerob the voice of God
This Thi ha seemed to agree zturee with air 1r Depews

I a Commission
I
r The Th protest protestor of the cattle men of the
I IVest Vest and andSouthyest Southwest against existin existing g
traffic conditions in their sections was wa s
voiced voic ed this s morning by S H Cowan of o r
Fort F rt Worth Tex Te representing the Cat
tie Raisers Assoc Association AssoCIation iation of Texas before
the Hotis House Committee on Interstate and an d
Foreign Commerce Co mmcr e
My rr people wan vant ta 1u a chance to Jiyeanp live 1r e and
prosper exclaimed < i Mr rr Cowan u uTh They Th Y
see zio reason r o IiWh why whhey hey es should o d pay p y 121 O

than they thCY did d id in n JS9S 1 S9S S9S or 6 6r r for t ten ti years 1 1than
before that time
The The business busI e Is In a a serious seriouscondi condi ¬ i
tion The Therallroads railroads are fond of saying sa ing 1
thc they have a rJght to share in the lr pros s
perity pcr1t of the country if that be true I
say they should share also in the adver a 1ver < ¬
sity of the people from whom they the i
make their profits
Demand Remedy I
These things demand remedy remedand and
we cannot expect it from fro the the1ailroads railroads
Railroad Bailtoadrates rates are fixed for the purpose
of making IDa king money mon itioneyand eyand and for no other pur purpose ¬
pose Railroad traffic men adopt those j
measures measures that wI will will l lIIiake make for their com ¬
panies the largest dividends diiden ds in the th lotg
run It is absurd to think any an < o body of
traffic men II1encan can or will fix rates r tes more
just or reasona reasonable ble than a a commission
representing the whole people
Mr Cowan discussed with much
earnestness the question of the in ¬
jured party part where rates are unrea ¬
sonable That unfortunate person he
said is exceedingly hard to find for
the reason that in most cases the
burden falls upon the small consumer
Whoever Is able to fix the price of i
his commodity is able to add the
freight he said It makes no differ ¬
ence to the steel trust or the beef l1eef i
trust truseor or the sugar trust whether
freight charges are increased or low ¬
ered They The simply fix the price and
add the freight The producer of cattie cattle
vegetables or grain has no such privi ¬
lege he cannot fix prices and therefore th refore
must bear the burden of increased
rates But he is impotent
ifv Ncompetition Competition Amon Among g Railroads
People of this country countrydu do not realiz
to whatetent what extent the railroads of o this
country have combined for their own
profit and their own < advantage The
law prohibits it it Is true but the thing
is done The railroads may ma work in
mysterious m sterious ways their wonders to per ¬
I form but they usually perform their
wonders There is not one onepartJcle particle of
competition today toda y between the railroads
of the Southwest In shipments of cattle
to Kansas Kapsas Ka flsas City and Chicago Chi a ago o j
I warn the committee against the
provision In some of the proposed bills
giving IvIng the court of commerce power
to pass in review upon the reasonable ¬
ness of the rates fixed by the Inter Int r ¬
state st1teCommerce Commerce Commission It is a
dangerous power powera a power destructive e
of all the good the bills are designed to
accomplish
The court unauthorized unauthc > rize Itself to fix
a rate will in the exercise qf of this pow ¬
er erbe ei be destructive merely of the con ¬
structive t ructlve work of the he commission and
not constructive of anything for the
future
What Everybody Wants
Mr Cowan said there could be no dis ¬
pute about the fact fact that everybody
wanted rebates abolished The railroads
and the people generally are a unit on
this proposition the railroads because l ecamG
they decrease profits and the people
because b cause they the interfere with the ordin ¬
ary ar mans chance e for a square deal deal
Robinson Gives Illustration
C W V Robinson representing the New
Orleans board of trade gave the com ¬
mittee an illustration of the manner
in which the railroads were accustomed
to lIx rates
An n Instance in inpoint point said tid Mr Robin ¬
son u uis is afforded atror < ed by b the action of the
Southern roads in raising the tariff on
yellow y now pine lumber I will quote on this
subject the words of J M Gulp traffic
manager of the Southern Hallway As s
near as I can remember he said that the
railroads leslring to share in the gen en ¬
oral tl prosperity of the country looked
bout to s sc e what industry in ustT < could best
bear an increase in freight rates The
lumber manufacturers rtl looked prosper ¬
bus ind m tiu they > y l were chosen for the th In ¬
crease

Wanted Another Superintendent
Not long ago It occurred to Mr fr Daven ¬

internment inten rt in place of Mr Barnes Mr
Barnes did not suit the first deputy
commisioner In fact the two have
never nee r rdisplayed displayed displa ed an uncontrolled affection
for each t lc > h other
As Acting Commissioner it seemed
good to Mr lr Davenport to seize the oo on
portunIty and displace Barnes So he
worked wtrk < d out a plain He had friends in
the H e interior Department 1JepartmePtsuggesf suggest that
Barnes salary be increased and he be
given gIv n a clerkship Whet i1N tb th tl < sueir I1tiN <

H E Burton of the Printing Office

port when the latter was in a receptive
mood concerning the theCommis Commissionership ionership
of Pensions That deal fell through
but Mr Davenport D avenport was grateful g r teful to Mr
I Burton Together they the decided that no
better man could be found for superin
t tnd tndent ndent nt of the Pension Office Building

tOIl th tlH > y determined upon u pon the promo

j Advised to Sit Tight
When hen Barnes found foundout out Quthow how matters
were going lie i1econsulted consulted his friends in
the Pension PeasIonOffice Office chief of which hich was
William r ilhiam H Bayley the chief clerk c rJe The
friends of the superintendent superintend < nt gave him
sound advice cautioning him above t boo all
things to sit tight and say sa nothing un ¬
til his increase of salary salar was wrtsformaIl formally
approved
When hen this was done Mr Ir Barnes de ¬
clined to become becom a clerk He said he
was satisfied with his job johard and would
keep it it Mr Ir Davenport aenport insisted upon
putting Burtcn In and finally finaIl the case
reached the Civil Service Commission
That body bOd informed the Acting Commis ¬
sioner of orPn Pensions Ions that it would be Im ¬
possible for Mr Burton to beccme sup sUP1

civil service examination This Mr tr
Burton had not done and he h has h18conse s conse ¬
quently GlIentJ been declared dedan d ineligible for the

Case Has Been Dropped
Mr Ir Davenport it Is understood is un ¬
willing to push the matter too vigor ¬
ously and as 1 Barnes refuses to resign
and Burton Is not eligible at the pres ¬
ent time the case has been dropped drop J
The grounds for postponement are an ¬
