VOL. 70--NO. 8
RAILROAD RATE BILL
Will Probably Place the Power
for Making Rates With the
Drug Trust Now Being Prosoouted
by Department of JusticeUn
certain When Congress Will
Wabhinoton D. C, Mayfl.2, 1000.
All that now eecms assured Is that
"there will be a vote on the rate bill
within two weeks. The so called Alli
son amendment also seems assured,
that Is If It Is not amended again out
of all shape before the bill la put In
form for signature. Gcnei ally speak.
lngand without going 'nt aN thc
technical -details and "legal verbiage
of thc amendment, It Is a provision
for thc broadest possible sort of a
court review. It practically leaves
the rate making power with thc
courts and not with thc Interstate
Commerce Commission because it
specifically -states that If the rail
roads arc dissatisfied with the rulings
ot thc Coratnlssloa they may take -the
case Into the courts andhavethe rote
named by the Commission confirmed
or denied. This Is a contingency -that
the Hepburn bill contemplated,
though It did not state it in so -many
words. It is possible that thc Allison
amendment may prove better for the
shipping public than the original bill
would have been. For It specifically
states that thc appeals on thc bill
shall be-direct from the first court to
thc Supreme Court of thc ITJnltcd
States and It directs that thc appeals
on rate measures shall take prece
dence over all other cases except
similar appeals and criminal cases.
There Is little use In guessing what
thc outcome will be except that rate
legislation -ot eomc sort Is assured and
that thc President expresses himself
as satisfied that It will be of the right
Whcnthe rate bill Is dltipoecd of, It

thc majority "f members. 'But thc
date of adjournment Is rcallytfar from
settled. 'Of course It would be pos
sible to put through thc appropriation
bills very-spccdlly. But In rthc back
ground tnere Is thc gho3tof the Phill
plneTarlll, thc Statehood bill, the
Pure Food bill and the Denatured
Alcohol bill, all of them Important
mcacurcs, though not legislation of
thc first magnitude. But any one of
them Is capable of starting a fight
that might keep Ougrcss here well
into the summer.
As an Illustration of the uncertainty
of the situation, the rcmarkof Sena
tor Foster-might be cited. He was
trying to buy a dog this week, and
with true Senatorial thrift wao bar
gaining toihavc him kept by the. deal
er "till Congress adjourned." "But
how long will that be," asked thc sell
er, a -German and rather Innocent of
Congressional lore. "Well,'" replied
Senator Foster, "I hope It will -be thc
first of June. There Is some proba
bility that ltwlll be the 15th of ffuly.
But I tell you In confidence, If 1 knew
myself, I would sell the Information.
It wouU be -worth more than -the
price of the dog."
Secretary Motcalf has returned
from the Pacific Coast where he went
as the pergonal representative of the
Administration to -supervise the ro
llef work. He drove straight from
the train to the White House and
mode a hurried verbal report to the,
President. He said that thc situation
on the coast was well In hand, that
the relief work under thc direction of
the Army and of the Belief Commit
tee was going on as well as could be
wlhcd or expected. But he said also
that the magnitude of the disaster
wad such that It was impossible to
convey an Impression of It without
either soaring otT Into meaningless
adjectives or else being commonplace
and lalllmr to convey a real Impres
sion of the situation. He said that
the description of the disaster was
thework of a historian twenty years
heuce. But he said at the same time
that the people of the Coast with real
pluck were taking the beat view of
the situation and were determined to
rebuild the city on a grander scale
than It had ever known and that
after all the loss might not prove
euch an unmixed misfortune.
Another move of the Department
of Justice that proves It U by no means
asleep to the trust problem, la the
suit that was Instituted this week
against the bo called "drug trust."
companies, one of which com
prises the manufacturers of patents
medicines and proprietory drugs of
all sorts, thc second the wholesale
druggists, and the third the retailers
of the country who are organized In
all the states with representatives
from each state in the national asso
ciation. This is the organization with
which the consumers are most nearly
interested It is alleged by thp De
partment of Justice that the three
companies form" a combination to ro
traUt of trade and that any dtuggist
who cuts the prices of drugs cr patent
nsdlclnM cannot get supplies from
the wholesalers association. It Is a
matter of common knowledge tnat
the wholesalers keep a lobby in Wash
ington to look after legislation, that
they even bring influence to bear on
the State Department In negotiations
with foreign goverments as to the ad
mission of American products, and
that there is not a piece of legislation
passed on which they do not have"an
eye and In -which they do not have a
hand if they want It. The prosecution
that has been Instituted is under the
Sherman anti-trust law for conspiracy
and It Is believed that there -will be
little -difficulty In proving that the
three companies constitute a real
conspiracy and that but for them thc
people would be getting -drugs and
medicines of all sorts at about one
half of the present prices.
This and thc two Inquiries that arc
now proceeding Into railway abuses
promjsc considerable Interest, not to
say excitement, In thc next few
months. The work of. thc Bureau of
Corporations In connection with thc
coal and oil carrying roads Is not yet
half done, and the Investigation along
somewhat similar lines by thc I Inter
state Commerce Commission Is just
well started. It Is quite certain that
there will be prosecutions to follow
both of these Inquiries and the courts,
arc likely to be kept busy with their
aftermath for months to come.
'. FISH BROKE' INTO PEN

As Good As Mew.
If you were to accidentally stray

It would, but that's the trlng ordeal
through which a 3 Inch bullhead cat
fish passed and came out unscathed,

his fishshlp after having been roughly

Recently the elevator in the ad
ministration building went out on a
strike, and. refused absolutely to work
or to be worked. Chief Engineer
Rcasoncr found thc trouble to be In a
shortage of water for the motor. Thc
obstruction waa-soon located lu the

above-mentioned cattish. It may have
been living In the pipes for weeks or

Now Drug Store.
Local Anti-Saloon Longuo Causes
A Sensational Bald Trial of
Accused Is Set for Noxt
Three full barrels of whiskey, two
ubout half full, numerous kegs of gin
Uhd bi. ndy and a large quantity of
buttled goods was secured by the
police In a raid on Gorman's place on
thc corner of Short nrd Main streets
baturday afternoon about 4:30. In
fact thc haul was so large thc olllccra
had trouble In loading It all on one
dray and greater trouble In finding a
place to store It In the city building.
Thc raid was led by Marshal Lylc
and was made on a search and seizure
warrant sworn out by Chaa. E. Brown
of the local Anti-Saloon League. A
charge of keeping a place waa lodged
against Mr. Gorman and he waa re
leased on $500 bond. ITnon roouest of
Gorman's attorney Mayor Costcllo set
tne trial lor Wednesday morning,
Thc value of thc seized liquors Is
said to be between JC00 and $700. The
capture of auch a large amount waa
as much a snrprlsc to thc olllccra aa
to the large crowd of thlraty ones
who witnessed It. In fact It was bo
large that thc officers advised with
the antl saloon league attorneys be
fore hauling It away aa contraband
goods. It was thc first real capture
by the local officers since thc passage
of thc search and seizure law.
In thc same room In which the
liquors were discovered was the entire
stock of drugs which Mr. Gorman had
recently purchased of Kaufmann &
Baer and only moved Into thc build
ing thatday. It 1B generally supposed
that thc defense will claim the liquors
were part of the diug stock and that
the place was a drug store which Is
exempted under the search and seizure
law. The anti-saloon league claim
that this will not hold good as Gorman
was without a registered pharmacist
at this time.
In the case of Julius C. Koch, whose
arrest and conviction for violating thc
Bcal law was recently reported by the
News-Herald, Mayor Costcllo on Mon
day overruled thc motion for a'new
trial and assessed a fine of $200 and
costs. Koch filed notice of appeal.
