THE CRITICISMS ARE UNJUST Weill and Reynolds Were Not Capable of Making a Cornet. Report. .Auoelite* Press to The Hreilac Ttaui. Washington, D. C., June 7.—Mr. Wil son read a pi-euared statement to the -congressional committee investigating the conditions existing in the Chicago stock yards, in which he said: "That the live stock and packing industries have suffered an irrepar able injury by the' unjust and unwar ranted criticisms of the past few weeks. I am surd it is unnecessary for me totell you gentlemett, who are in such close touch with the agricultural interests of the country. Had the or iginal motive been simply the object of legislation to improve the legisla tion and sanitary conditions, then I aay the criticisms hare been doubly unjust and unfair, for in the very in ception of the investigation, the com mission and their superiors were given the assurance of the packers' co operation and their personal guaran tee was given that any practical rec ommendations would be welcomed and adopted. We are now and have always been in favor of the extension of the inspection, also of the adoption of sanitary regulations that will in sure the very best conditions and in this connection I must respectfully call your attention jo the recom mendations of Messrs. Nelll and Rey nolds, paragraph VII. of their re* port, all of which except some minor details has the hearty approval and support of the packers. What we are opposed to and what we appeal to you gentlemen for protection against is a bill that will put our business in the bands of theorists, chemists, sociolo gists, etc., and control taken away from the men who have devoted their lives to the upbuilding and perfecting of this great American industry. "My denials of 'Messrs. Neill and Reynolds' report is detail wonld, of course, simply he my opinions against theirs, notwithstanding my 20 years' experience in the business. "There is no question but that-the many necessary operations attending the slaughtering of animals, the sight of blood and other -offals resulting would have a very'shocking effect on the nerves and senses of two men with the necessary fine sensibilities that such men as Messrs. Neill and Reynolds must have, who have devoted their lives to one line of scientific or' sociological work, but men such, as this committee. is made up of with broad and more general experiences will immediately appreciate how the conditions reported have been exag gerated and that the greatest effort is made at all times to handle the product in a clean and sanitary man ner. We appreciate that Messrs. Nelll and Reynolds' experiences especially equip them to recommend improve ments in social conditions and many of the suggestions recommended by them were found to be practicable and have already been adopted, but we al so felt that their two and one-half weeks' experience in the packing houses does not equip them sufficiently to justify your honorable body in un dertaking to intelligently legislate on their observations alone." For this reason he wanted the com mittee to make a personal inspection^ Washington, June 7.—The house committee on agriculture continued the hearing on the Neill-Reynolds packing house report today. Thomas Wilson, representing the packers, con tinned his remarks, saying the addi tional objections of the packers was" the placing of the cost of inspection on the packers. CODIFYING LAWS.

Madrid, June 7.—The castle which Alfonso and his queen have chosen for their honeymoon is the Spanish Ver sailles, known as La Granja. It Is a quaint and quiet spot, far removed from the inquisitive throngs of the capital, and with all the picturesque and romantic surroundings suitable for a royal honeymoon. The palace is situated at the foot of the imposing Pico de Penalara, in the Uuadarrama mountains high above the sea level. The little 'lage dates from ancient times, when Henry IV. built a chapel there and dedicated it to St. lldefonso. After the friars of the Parral monastery established here a farm (La Granja), which so much suited the fancy'of the first Spanish Bourbon, Phillip V., that he bought the place and erected a magnificent palace with surrounding parks, in the style Of his French native country. The foun tains and water works, then established and still running, are not surpassed by any other royal possession in Europe. For years the Spanish kings used this palace and pari: as a pleasure resort, much as the French kings pass ed their days of pleasure at Versailles. Charles III. received here the Count Artois, when he marched to conquer Gibraltar. Godoy signed here the treaty which delivered Spain from France, and Ferdinand VII. here appointed the Infant Don Carlos to be prince hereditary. When his energetic sister in-law heard of this intention, she hastened to La Granja, threw the courtiers out of the palace, gave to Premier Calomarde the famous box on the ear, about which he said after that "white hands cannot offend tore to pieces the first Spanish testa ment, and insured the throne to the king's little daughter. Isabella—events which caused the bloody civil war. La Granja is at its best at this time of year, and the blossoms, the old trees, the myrtle lanes, the fountains, and the fresh mountain air will all serve to make this royal honeymoon a delight. The castle overlooks the park, with its numerous cascades and lakes, supplied with water from huge reser voirs. These water works are really the most remarkable feature of La Granja, and the effect of the mountains is much more grand than at Versailles. In the fountain of Perseus, who rescues Andromeda from the dragon, the latter throws a jet of 100 feet in the air. The basket fountain consists of numer ous jets, 40 to 65 feet high, and the jet of the Fauna fountain, 115 feet high, can be seen at Segovia. The "Bath of Diana" is a chaos of water spouts and staiues of godesses and nymphs, glorifying the triumph of the loving woman, appearing in her whole beauty. STRIKE-BREAKERS.

TBE HEARING WILL LAST SEVERAL DAYS The Superintendent of Motive Power on the Stand Again Today. Associated Press to The Evealagr Times, Philadelphia, June 7.—Thoroughness is to characterize the investigation of the interstate commerce commission in its investigation of the relation be tween the railroads and the coke, coal and oil industries. Attorney Glas gow, for the commission, stated today that owing to the large number of wit nesses still to be heard, the hearing will continue all of this week and probably a portion of next week. A. W. Gibbs, general superintendent of the motive power of the Pennsylvania railroad, was recalled today and asked by Glasgow if it is not a fact that most of the fuel coal purchased by the Pennsylvania railroad company came from the Keystone Coal and Coke com pany's operations and those of Col. Alfred Hicks. Gibbs said that was BO. Glasgow wanted to know if it was merely a coincidence that company coal was furnished by concerns ia which the railroad officials were in terested or whether he had been In structed by any higher official as to what companies were to furnish fuel coal. Gibbs explained as he did when on the stand yesterday, that it was the custom for a railroad to assist new operations by purchasing fuel coal from them. Testifying before the interstate com merce commission today Joseph iL Aiken, who has been the chief clerk in the superintendent's office of the Monongahela division of the Penn sylvania railroad, revealed almost as startling evidence as that given by Joseph B. Boyer before the commis sion yesterday. On salary which he said varied from |30 to $126 per month Aiken had purchased stock in different coal companies amounting to nearly $75,000. He admitted having received gifts of cash from coal operators on the Pennsylvania lines and had also received $50 a month for several months for a company store. Boyer Discharged. Philadelphia, June 7.—Joseph Boyer, the Pennsylvania railway employee who testified yesterday that he re ceived money and other gratuities from coal companies, was dismissed from service today by order of Presi dent Cassatt. Frrnlar Glasgow, June 7.—An immense crowd that included many noted shipbuilders, engineers and others assembled today at the John Brown company's works at Clydesdale and witnesed the launch ing of the largest steamship ever built The vessel is the Lusitania, one of the two mammoth ships being built for the Cunard company, and which, if ex pectations are fulfilled, will smash all trans-atlantic speed records. The launching of the great ship, was suc cessful in every respect The chris tening ceremony was performed by the Dowager Lady Inverclyde, widow of the former chairman of the Cunard line. The Lusitania and her sister ship, the Mauritania, which is being buUt on the Tyne, are to have a displace ment of 33,200 tons each. They are 120 feet longer than the celebrated Great Eastern and are the first ves sels' constructed that have a greater bean than that vessel. Each ship has about 38,000 tons of stell wrought into her. Some of the plates in the hull, are 40 feet long and weigh four to five tons. The motive power will con sist of four turbines, each of a de signed, indicated horsepower of 18,00b. The speed is expected to reach 35 knots. When facing the bridge, the captain will be 110 feet above the keel and the four funnels each liner has, will tower 154 feet above the keel. Two loco motives of the ordinary type could pass each other inside these enormous funnels. Every voyage, the population of a good-sized town will be carried across the Atlantic. The luxuries on board will rival the finest hotels. The decorations will consist of reproductions of the great est works of art, while the system of elevators between the various decks will provide for the rapid transit of the pasengers from one part of the ship to another. The Lusitania and the Mauritania will be practically unslnkable. Bulk heads divide the hull into a large num ber of separate water-tight compart ments. On the bridge a lever controls the hydraulic gear, and at a word from the officer in comamnd, every bulk head can be closed Instantaneously. rV»
