THE WASHINGTON TIMES; WEDNESDAY; JANUARY 21; 1914" ,14 WILSON TO DECIDE FATE OF RATE CASE Executive in Filling Two Vacancies on Interstate Commerce Commission Will Determine Wheth er Railroads Will G et 5 Per Cent Increase on Freight By JUDSON President Wilson, in filling two va cancies on the Interstate 'Commerce Commission, will, in effect, determine whether the railroads shall or shall not set their 5 per cent increase of rates. This is the opinion now widely held by persons who have familiarized them selves, as well as possible, with coir dltlons surrounding consideration of the increased rate case. The appointments are expected to bo announced very soon. With the Presi dent's message delivered, and Congress at work on its big program for the regulation of "Big Business," these ap pointments to the Interstate Commission are looked upon as the next biggest and most pressing matter in the Ex ecutive hand. Acute Interest In Appointments. Consideration of the railroads' applica tion for increase in rates has not yet been delayed, but It is not expected to be pressed until the vacancies on the commission are filled. Never has there been such acute interest In ap pointments to be made by the Presi dent to this body. The President, it is commonly be lieved, will determine the decision In the advanced rata case by his appoint ments. This conviction, now widely enter tained, is based on the belief that two of the present commissioners would be favorably disposed toward the demand of the railroads, and that If the Presi dent should, name two more of that mind, the four would make up a domi nating majority. The full commission has seven members. Because of this belief, that the de termination finally lies with the Chief Executive, concern about the forthcom ing appointments n become acute. The commission at present contains two Democrats, McChord and Clements. and four Republicans, Prouty. Clark, Harlan, and Meyer. Mr. Prouty has re signed, and his resignation will be ac cepted. Just as soon as the President Is ready to name a successor. Want Democrats Warned. Democrats are Insistent that the two new men shall be of their faith, so as tn nlfiit. 1... . lj t. , . rM? mad i.unumnaiuu s control in i that party. On the other hand, there i3 a. good deal of pressure In favor of1 naming one member of tbe Progressive party. This Is especially Interesting In view of the fact that the man who has. perhaps, the widest range of support, is himself a Progressive In party affilia tion. He Is W. H. Wheeler, of Saa Francisco. A month ago It was widely believed Wheeler, who Is chief traffic official of tbe San Francisco Chamber of Com- luerce, was sure 10 De named. Now he Is generally believed to be out of it; and the fact that he Is not a Democrat Is given as the reason. The- two places to be fined represent the New England and the Pacific coast territory. Commissioner Marble, recent ly deceased, came from California, and the coast demands his successor. There is a longUst of candidates, headed by W. H. Wheeler, and Including Scth Mann, attorney of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. Mann is a Democrat which' Is decidedly in his fa vor, but he is committed to the candi dacy of Wheeler, and while in Wash- nt,uuu iaai wees insisted tie would not enter the race so long as Wheeler was J. N. Teal Is Boomed. Joseph N. Teal, of Portland. Ore, has been urged as good material, but has persistently refused to enter. Two members of the California State rail way commission. Chairman Lovcland and Commissioner Eshelman, and Com missioner Aitchcson, of the Oregon commission, have considerable coast backing. Henry Thurtell, late a member of the Nevada commission, and now an exam iner under the Interstate Commission, is a strong candidate for the far West ern place- Commissioner Shaughnessy. of Nevada, Is another: both havo been presented to the President by Senator Newlands, but neither has been prefer red over the other. These two are Democrats. If the appointment comes farther East than the coast, it seems probable that Henry C. Hall, of Colorado SprlngsT will have one of the best chances. Hall has been several times major of Colo rado Springs, is a lawyer, and has the vigorous support of the Colorado Sena tors. .t?rBe Hlnshaw. of tho Oklahoma public service commission, .s reported to have the support of Col. Edward M. House, of Texas and New York, for this position. If this shall prove true. It will make Hlnshaw a real factor The Southwest In Insisting that It needs a commissioner quite as much as the Pacific coast, and this 13 the basis of the insistence on Hinshaw -r Allison Mtyfleld, chairman of the Texas com mission. New Orleans Man Supported. Former Attorney General Miller, of Mississippi, now a resident of Now Or leans, is also credited with consider able effective support on this same Southwestern theory. For the New England vacancy, in succession to Judge -Prouty it is re ported that David O. Ives, of Boston, until lately regarded as the strongest candidate, is out of the running. Ives, some years ago, as a railroad traffic official, was fined for ri.rur rebates. The circumstances were decided such as to Justify the kindliest view of the offense, but tho president. It Is report ed, is convinced that ir would require Stiff Joints and Pains? MUSTEROLEQuickly Relieves Keep a Jar In the house. It is tho premier remedy for Backache, Sore Jcints or Muscles. Rheumatic Pains, etc. MUSTEROLE is a clean, white ointment mado with oil of mus tard. It penetrates to I he scat of pain and Irives it away but does not blister the tenderest tk(n. It takes the place of the mussy. old farhioned mustard plaster. MUSTEROLE Is recommended for C. WELLIVER. too much explaining. Mr. Ives Is now traffic manager of the Boston chamber of commerce, a sort of all-New Eng land affair, and powerfully backed. There has been repeated suggestion, also, that Martin A. Knapp, former chairman of the commission, and now a circuit judge of the Fourth circuit, might be restored to the commission. The idea is said to have pleased the President when laid before him. On the other hand, there Is opposition to Judge Knapp because of his service as head of the Court of Commerce. It is flatly declared that if nominated he would meet sharp opposition for con firmation. C. T. Callahan of Holyoke, Mass., a. former Democratic State chairman of Massachusetts and a close friend of George Fred Williams, is reputed to be supported by Mr. Bryan, through the mediation or Williams, uauanan nas to his credit, further, that he was a lieu tenant of Bryan In the management of the Baltimore convention fight, and neither Bryan nor the President has been unmindful of services dating from that period. Farrell Well Known. P. J. Farrell, general solicitor of the Interstate Commission, without doubt has a more widespread support than any other man named for the Commis sion. His wide acquaintance has won him the support of lawyers and traffic men on both sides of the dividing line of Interest. He is a "Vermont Democrat, and has the support of Commissioner Prouty. Other candidates with real political support that makes them factors aro Chairman McNary, of the Boston Har bor and Laud Commission, who is said to be supported by a majority of the Massachusetts delegation in Congress.

Heald of Buf falo: Commissioner Daniels, of the New Jersey Public Service Commission, an appointee of Mr. Wilson, and the pos sessor of the President's fullest confi dence. The general belief Is that the two ap pointments will be made at the same time, and that they will get to the Sen ate before February L Police Court Record District Brand), Jndes Mullowny James Smith, speeding automobile, 110 flna or 10 days; Mary rorsey. disorderly conduct, JO flna or 15 days; Robert Mathews, colliding, trial January 22; Margaret Poole, disorderly conduct, trial January 23; William H.

They are simply pain relievers, not stimulants not intoxicants, not disposed to arouse day dreams and lift one away from tho caresof life. This remedy carries with it only rest, onlytran quilnerves, onlyabsehceof pain relief comesquickly, gentlyandsurely. The chief claim advanced in favor of Anti-kamnia Tablets overall other products is,that their unc is not followed by unpleasant results. In certainty and celerity of action this remedy has also been found superior to any of its predecessors. In case3 of Acute Neuralgia (nerve pain) , tested with a view of determining the pain relieving properties of Anti-kamnia Tablets, they wero found to exceed any ana all others in rapidity and certainty of the relief given. Neuralgia and all forms of Headache, La Grippe, Cold, etc., yield to their influence inaremark ably short time. The excellent results obtained as Pain Relievers in all Neuralgic and Rheumatic diseases justify us in calling your attention to Anti-kamnia Tablets in Sciatica and Locomotor Ataxia. The dose for adults, which always gives relief in severe headaches, especially those of bookkeepers, actors, lawyers, students, mothers, teachers and nurses, in short all headaches caused by anxiety or men tal strain, is two Anti-kamnia Tablets, followed by a swallow of water or wine. As a preventive of and cure for nausea while traveling by railroad or steamboat, and for genuine mal de mer or seasickness, Anti-kamnia Tablets are unsurpassed. Whena painful cavity exists in atooth, or anerveorrootis exposed; fortoothacho.facialneuralgiaandthcpainfollowingthe extraction of a tooth, administerinternallyanAnti-kamniaTablet,andfillthecavity with an Anti-kamnia Tablet, powdered; also apply freely about the gums. For tho pains peculiar to women at time of period, two Tablets taken with a little hot toddy or without if objected to, invariably relieve. Two Anti-kamnia Tablets afford a positive relief for all nervous disturbances due to excessive eating or drinking. A dozen tablets conveniently at hand wilt always be found useful in time of pain. All genuine Anti-kamnia Tablets bear theK monogram. Ask your druggist for A-K Tablets. All druggists any quantity desired. For Eczema And Skin Trouble. There Ii Nothing Like Anti-lamau (A-K) SiUe.
