Transportation Costs. 1 WOW II GARDNER C ARES UNCLE SAMIABLE MINORITY R OR 1; Confident, that the assailant of Mrs. Maudo Hoffman, who was ' assaulted near her home, at Addison, Va., Mon day mornlngr, is within the boundaries of the city today, the Washington police are making vigorous search for him. A colored man, answering In every de tail the description given by Mrs. Hoff man, of the man who attacked her, came Into Washington early this morn Ink on a brick wagon from Virginia. The police of every precinct, and head quarters detectives ware aware of his movements in the city until he turned east , on .B street northwest, not 200 yards from Police Headquarters, and, more Important still, have an accurate description of his dress today. The man they are looking for was hatless and coatless when ho entered the city, though he declared! at the time that ho was going to purchase a hat the first tlilng he did. All railroad trains.; freights, sub urban cars, roads, and bridges, In fact,' very exit to the city Is being closely guarded. George Herrell, a driver for the lo 'tomac Brick Company, was coming to Washington with a loaded wagon ut about 5:80 o'clock this morning, when a colored man requested a lift over Highway bridge. The stranger sat on the seat with Herrell and talked with him. He told Herrell that ho was go ing to buy a hat and beat it out of "Washington as quickly as he could. "It Is getting too hot for me In Vir ginia," he said. "They are arresting. too many niggers about this woman up here near Highland Park. 1 am going to) get away." Herrell questioned him, and he said he knew all about the, as sault on Mrs. Hoffman and that that was what he meant. He also told Her sell that he had dono similar things many times, but gave no Instance. Tho stranger showed Herrell a big gun and told him that they could arrest all tho colored men they wanted to, but thut they wero not going to arrest him. Herrell later told his employers all about It and said that he had noticed the man particularly because he was struck with his appearance and talk, and h3 connected them with the assault upon Mrs. Hoffman. Commonwealth Attorney Mackey was called and gavo the following lookout to tho Washing ton police. "Look out or a colored man, brown ' skin, eighteen years old, 6 feet 6, slen der build, good features, scratches on face and bitten on hand. Wore light shirt, no hat. Came over from Virginia this morning on a brick wagon. Got off at Fourteenth and B streets south west, said he would buy a hat and take a freight train out of Washington. Ib wanted In Alexandria county, Va., for attempted assault on Mrs. Maude Hoff man. Have men watch all freight trains, suburban cars, county roads, and bridges." Herrell said that he noticed the man's face and hands, particularly for the marks described. They being the same as marks Mrs. Hoffman said she was sure her assailant would carry. The man rode to Fourteenth and D streets southwest with Herrell, left his wagon and walked to Fourteenth and B streetB northwest- where he turned east toward the market, and Herrell lost sight of him. Mrs. Hoffman is still at the home of her sister-in-law on North Capitol street, and Is entirely recovered from the shock of her experience. MISSIONARIES WILL BE PHLLY PROTECTED Japan Assures State Department That Americans Are Safe. That the State Department has been assured by the Japanese government of the protection of the life, property, and Interest of American missionaries and ethers In Korea, was learned today. At the game time It was Intimated that high officials here are grieved at the propaganda seeking to stir up resent ment between the two nations. According to an authority at the Staje Department, this Government feels no apprehension regarding any aspect of the Korean situation except the fear that needless agitation may promote ill feeling, resulting in possible harm. - No protest has been received at the department from any of the American mission boards, and It Is doubtful if any protest will be- forthcoming.

Mrs. Stuphen stated In her petition that they were married In Newnrk n. J., June 16, 1901, and her husband desert ed her in 1906, coming to Washington. She claimed that on April 20, last, there was a reconciliation, but four days later her husband again left her.

Held for Grand Jury. Gaspare Lomedlco, the Italian barber rrested last Saturday on a serious charge preferred against him on the complaint of thirteen-year-old Josephine Thompson, pleaded not guilty In the United States branch of the Police Court today and waived examination. He was held for the action of the grand Jury In 11,000 bonds. The bond wag furnished by his brother. (Contlnuod from FIrst'Page.) ' the court found the commission had exceeded, its powers or that Its order was confiscatory It would ihold the order void and annul same. "Those orders are affirmative orders and In the very nature of things cannot apply to the shipper, as the commission never orders a shipper- either to "do or not to do anything. "After the Commerce ., Court was es tablished It held that It had" the power to review what Is called a negative order of tho commission, that Is. where the commission, after full hearing, re fuses to make' an drder'agalnst a com mon carrier and dismisses tho petition seeking to have an affirmative . order made. The Commerce Court made this decision in what Is known as the Proc ter & Gamble case. "This case was carried to the Su preme Court and was recently decided by that court. Chief Justice White de livering the opinion, which was unani mous, in which It was held the Com merce Court had no Jurisdiction to re view any negative ordor of the com mission; that only affirmative orders of tho commission are subject to court review. Tap Line Cases. "There was a large, number of tap line railroad cases pending before the Commerce Court, wherein the Inter state Commerces-Commission had held that said roads were, only plant facil ities and not common carriers, and refused to allow a division of tho freight charge made by the trunk lino roads carrying lumber from saw mills Berved by the tap line to the markets. When the Procter & Gamble case was decided, by the Supreme Court the Com merce Court dismissed these tap line cases, as all of them Involved the same question of court review of the nega tive action of the commission. "The attorneys representing these in dustrial tap line roads Immediately Bought to havo bills introduced and passed by Congress giving jurisdiction to the Commerce Court to pass on the validity of theso negative orders or the commission, and one of these bills was favorably reported by the Judiciary Committee. "Chief Justice White, In delivering tho opinion of the Supreme Court in the Procter & Gamble case, in commenting on the effect of giving the Commerce Court jurisdiction to pass on negative orders of the commission, said: To give to the statuto a meaning contrary to that which we havo found results from Us text, and, therefore, to recognize the existence in the court below of the power which It deemed it possessed would result in frustrating the legislative public policy which led to the adopt ion of the act to regulate commerce, would render Impossible a resort to tho remedies which the statute was enacted to afford, would multiply the evils which the act to regulate com merce was adopted to prevent, and thus bring about dlsaster-by creating confusion and conflict where clear ness and unity of action was Con templated. "To give the Commerce Court or any court the power to pass on negative orders of the commission by act of Congress cannot be less Injurious, be cause done by legislation Instead of by Interpretation. The effect of such juris diction must be the same, however obtained." LABOR MAY SUPPORT PROGRESSIVE PARTY Plank Will Be Submitted If Will ingness To Consider Is Indicated. Until the national progressive party, which will hold Its convention at Chi cago, August 5, takes some step to In dicate whether It will make a bid for the support of organized labor, the American Federation of Labor will probably not consider the proposal to send a delegation to the convention to submit to the platform committee a de mand for a plank favorable to the labor Interests. At both the regular Republican and Democratic national conclaves, Samuel Gompers and a federation delegatljn appeared to urge a declaration for fa vorable labor legislation. Gompeis said today that he had noi considered this matter, but under cer tain cond'llons the Federation of which he 1b president might formally seek recognition. It Is believed here that If Colonel Roosovelt Indicates a willingness to yesterda yafternoon Nels J. Nelson and ject there will be a prompt response on their part. While tho Federation through Its offi cial magazine has Indicated that It con siders the Democratic platform much more favorable than the Republican, no specific declaration committing union labor's suffrage to Governor Wilson, the Democratic nominee, Is made, and It will be possible for the Federation to go on record for the Roosevelt party !f Its platform Is found to be more suit able than either the Republican or Democratic documents. Clear McCabe's Office Of Obnoxious Visitors Solicitor McCabe's office was cleaned out today. Not In the way Dr. Wiley probably would recommend by tho re movllng of tho Incumbent, whom Dr. Wiley has charged' again and again Is the grand nulllfler of attempts to en force the pure food and drugs act but by filling the office full of hydrocyanic gas, which Is guaranteed to kill all un Dleasant visitors, large or small. Bureau of Entomology men, undor C. H. Popenoe, conducted the fumiga tion. Solicitor McCabe has complained recently to the Secretary of Agriculture that there wero many bugs about. WEDDING RECEPTIONS FINE CATERING BANQUET PARLORS SIS 10th St. N. W. oooooooooooooooooosoo---nooooolo Who 'stole'the thunder" of.tho minor ity of the House Steel Trust Investigat ing Committee? This question was provoked by a speech In the House today by Congress man Gardner, spokesman for the mi nority of the Steel Committee. That Colonel Roosevelt's views, mado public today, regarding control of trusts, singularly- corresponded'; to tho conclu sions of the' minority, was asserted by Gardner. Ho told the House that yes terday at 1:80 p. m., hot gave out to newspaperf confidentially and held "strlctly.for release"' the minority com mittee report. It ils1 to bo mado public Monday 'morning. "I make this statement,'" said Gard ner, "because. tho. views on-the-steel in dustry given out by Colonel Roosevelt last i night t singularly corresponded In twotrespectA with the 'conclusions of the minority. These two respects relate to' the labor situation and to that part of Chairman Stanley's bill which deals with corporations which control over SOper cent of the domestic product of a given article." "Of course, Colonel Roosevelt' has made an .error In confusing a rebuttal presumption of unreasonableness with an absolute nrohlbltlon in the cniea of corporations of that nort; but that lsa, jiuoiu.no wnicn any man mignt mane on a superficial examination of tho Stanley Brandels bill. "I know the world is censorious, and I fear It might say that tho minority had purloined the colonel's views. If I wero to neglect to point out that wo gave our views to the press several hours earlier than the colonel gave out his statement" Gardner did not Intimate that Colonel Roosevelt had Jearned the contents of the minority report beforo giving out his statement, but wanted it emphatic ally understood that the minority "beat itooseveit to it." Chairman Stanley and tho Democrats upon the committee will file their re port In tho House Thursday. Army Aviator Testing Biplane Just Arrived George W.

As a consequence there Is a shortage among the latter of $1,"2, and $5 bills, and thero will bo no relief from this condition until Congress straightens out the tan gle of Its big appropriation bills, par ticularly the sundry civil appropriation bill. i Congress failed to pass the sundry civil. bill In time to moet tho demands bf .the now fiscal year, which began July L and to keep the wheels of gov ernment In motion it passed a resolution extending to the amount of' one-twelfth tho old1 appropriation bills, thinking thereby to provide the cosh wherewith to do) business on or before August L It happens that the demand for the movement of money, particularly the bills of small, denomination, Is much greater during the first, part of tho .fiscal year than the last so that It costs more to transport money during July than It would In" some other months. At present the appropriation Is about exhausted,- and the subtreasury officials are crying for Bmall bills.
