Interstate Commerce Board
Reports to Congress
105,234 Were Injured.
Washington, Dee. 21.—The report of
the Interstate commerce commission,
presented today to the senate and
house of representatives, shoSvr that
the total number of casualties to per
sons on the railways for the year end
ed June 80, 1808, was 114,418, of which
10,188 represented the number of per
sons killed and 104,230 the number in
These ligures do not include acci
dents reported by switching and ter
minal companies, as follows: Employ
ees, (15 billed, 880 Injured; passengers,
2 hilled, 8β Injured; other persons, 58
killed, 88 Injured; total, 125 killed,
1,004 injured.
Casualties occurred among three gen
eral classes of railway employees In
the service of carriers other than
those classed aa switching and termi
nal, as follows: Trainmen, 1,842 killed
and 85,821 injured; switch tenders,
crossing tenders and watchmen, 137
killed, 1,068 Injured; other employees,
1,420 killed, 45.ΑΘ8 Injured. The casual
ties to employees coupling and uncou
pling cars were: Employees killed, 222;
Injured, 8,378.
The total number of casualties to
persons other than employees from be
ing struck by trains, locomotives or
cars was 5,018 killed and 4,572 Injured.
Amendments to Law Needed.
Urging the need of amendments to
the law, the commission says:
"The experience of the past year
confirms our conviction that certain
amendments are necessary to enable
the commission to more fully accom
plish the purposes of the act.
"There Is, In our opinion, urgent
need of a physical valuation of the
Interstate railways of this conutry.
Even assuming that the valuation of
our railways would be of no assist
ance to this commission In establish
ing reasonable rates. It is still nec
essary If those rates are to be success
fully defended when attacked by the
carriers that some means be furnished
by which within reasonable limits a
value can be establls^o4'Which shall
be binding upon tine conrts and the
commission. r* *
Muet P-event Sudden Rat· Increaees.
"It seems plain to us also that some
method should be provided by which
railroads cau be prevented from ad
vancing their rate· or changing their
I regulations and practices to the disad
vantage of tho shipper pending an In
vestigation into the reasonableness of
the proposed change. Confusion and
discrimination result from present con
"Nothing can be more fallacious than
to assume that damages are in most
Instances a remedy for the extortion
of an unreasonable rate, nor, If It
should be Anally held that courts have
authority to prohibit advances, are the
Injured parties In most cases able to
conduct an expensive litigation and tile
the enormous bonds which are neces
sary to the obtaining of an Injunction.
Wider Authority Necessary.
"If this body Is to be relied upon to
correct unreasonable railway rates,
regulations and practices, Instances
must frequently arise In which no
formal complaint will be died, but
where Investigations ought to be had
and orders mude.
"We believe that wherever It ap
pears, either from a formal complaint
tiled or from Informal complaint re
ceived or from the general knowledge
of tho commission, that a given situa
tion ought to be Investigated, the com
mission should have authority upon Its
own motion or by modifying a com
plaint already filed to prosecute an
adequate inquiry upon notice to the
carrier ami to make a relieving order
if one be required.
Control Over Capitalization Urged.
"The need of exercising control over
railway capitalization Is again urged
upon the attention oUbe congress.
• "The commission also recommends
that Λ have broader authority to pre
scribe and enforce general regulation·
relating to the movement of ti n the.
When u standard of reasonable prac
tice hue been established by tUe volun
tary action of the carriers or can be
fairly ascertained by suitable Investi
gation conformity to that standard
should be made obligatory, and this
can best be done, In our judgment, by
empowering the coinmlsslou to make
suitable regulations. This gives to the
approved practice the sanction and
si.w.jport «>f public authority and oper
ates to see us? Its uniform observance."

Butler Testifies Against
Mistress in Suit—Girl
Was Also Kicked.
Mlneoia, N. T., TN»c. 21.—Testimony
to tira effect that the gentle eyed, soft
voiced M re. W. Gould Brokaw kicked
her maid and beat her with a whip
was introduced during the séparation
and alimony ault which the young wife
haa on trial in count here.
The maid, according to the narrator
of the lucfaent, waa so badly used up
in the encoonter with her slender mia
tresa that-she had to take a cocktail
inwardly and a lot of witch hazel out
wardly to restore lier composure. Then
she was discharged.
Sidney Woods, the butler at Bro
ke w North Carolina bouse, told of the
kicking and whipping episode. There
had been a quarrel between husband
aud wife. Mr. Brokaw had gone away,
and Mr. Blair, the wife's father, had
been culled to High Point to pacify
her. At his request the key of the
telephone booth had been given to
Woods, the butler, with instructions
not to allow Mrs. Brokaw "to use the
phone. This was because she wanted
to run away from High Point.
Mr». Brokaw Put» H«r Foot Down.
"Miss J>ee, the nurse, had occasion
to use the telephone," said Woods,
"and 1 let her enter the booth, which
closed and locked after her when the
door swung. Then Mrs. Brokaw came
to the booth and Remanded the use
of it.
" 'Vèry sorry, madam,' I told her,
'but Mr. Blair'· instruction i* that
the booth must be kept locked.' She
stumped her foot—she was very im
petuous—and aaid: Open it. I am
Mrs. Brokaw and must be obeyed. If
1 choose to do anything about here no
one dare to stop me.' Then she stamp
ed her foot again at the nurse and
said, "I'll make things hot for you
some day.' "
Woods, it appeared, locked up the
phone when the nurse was through,
and Mrs. Brokaw didn't go to !t. But
when Miss Lee departed and went up
stairs she followed, and when the but
ler next saw the nurse she waa cry
lug. Asked what he did for ber, he
"1 mixed her a cocktail and gave her
a bottle of witch hazel." *
Port Win· and Remark·,
"I had been ordered to bring a glass
of port wine and some crackers to
madam," he said, "and when I gave
them to her she said, 'Woods, I hare
discharged Miss Lee.' 'Very sorry,
ma'am,' I said. Ί have Just given
Miss Lee some witch hazel, because
she bas been whipped, and her hand
and leg needed rubbing.' "
"Do you mean to say," demanded
Attorney Baldwin in cross examina
tion, "that you, a servant, addressed
such a remark to your mistress?"
Woods became greatly embarrassed.
But be went on:
"1 told her, sir, that she and Miss
Lee always seemed most friendly, and
at that moment Miss Lee was rubbing
her band and leg in the hallway out
side—beg pardon, sir (he became more
embarrassed), 1 don't know about her
leg, sir, but her hand anyway, and I
thought Mrs. Brokaw would be sym
pathetic when she heard Miss Lee #as
Serv*d Cocktail· In Taaoup·.
"Who hadk^done the kicking and
whipping?" he was asked. He was
not allowed to reply directly, but he
said with averted face, "Mrs. Brokaw
knew quite well, sir, who had done It."
"Hid you ever serve cocktails to Mrs.
Brokaw?" the husband's lawyer, Mr.
Bush, asked.
"I've sent them to her room, sir,
many times," he replied.
"They were sent sometimes in metal
shakers, other times In teacups and
As to smoking, Woods said: "I often
took her cigarettes. I saw her one
night, sir, pick up a cigarette in the
dining room, light it and walk off
smoking toward ber own room."
