Tha Railroad Pooling Bill Under Con
Washington, Dec. G.—At the opening
session of the houae today the speaker
announced a number of committee ap
The committee on appropriations re
ported the fortifications appropriation
bill, which was disposed of.
O'Neil of Masßachusete reported the
pension appropriation bill.
Consideration of the railroad pooling
bill was resumed under the special or
der adopted yesterday.
Cooper, Democrat, of Florida, a mem
ber of the commerce committee, de
clared the bill had four important fea
tures. It authorized and legalized
railroad pooling, and in doing ao it gave
a new grant of power to all the railroads
of the country ; it provided amendments
to the procedure section of the preaent
law, in prescribing rules of evidence fa ;
good feature); it changed wholly the
criminal liability for discrimination in
rates, and it changed tbe remediea for
cause of action. While he doubted the
advisability of granting pooling powers
to railroads, he was willing to agree
that if auch pooling should be allowed it
should be under the direct control of a
responsible commission. He offered a
snbstituts to meet bis objections to the
Henderson, Republican, of lowa, asked
if the fact that small shippers under a
pooling system would not be able to get j
the advantages oi the low rates uon
given big ebippere, would not justify the
passage of a law legalizing pooling.
Cooper replied that that was the only
consideration which could induce him
tv vote to authorize pooling, but he I
wonld not do so unless safeguards and
restrictions not contained iv this bill
were provided to prevent the abuae cf
tbis proposed enlargement of tbe charter
powers of tbe railroads.
(ireebam. Democrat, of Texas, and
Moore, Republican, of Massachusetts,
spoke in support of tbe bill, aod Daniel,
Republican, of North Carolina, followed
in opposition. At the conclusion of
Daniel's argument, the house at 4:55
p. m. adjourned until tomorrow.

sioner Wright had a conference today
with Chairman McGinn of the house
committee on labor. Representative
Springer, author of the pending ar bitra
tion bill, and Representative Krdman,
wbo wrote tbe favorable report on tbe

arbitrating strikes, with a view to out
lining a programme for immediate ac
tion in congress. Mr. Wright's experi
ences in the presidential commission,
"which recently investigated tbe Pull
man strike, is depended on to give
practical form to the plan of national
arbitration. It has heretofore been
urged theoretically, hut the report of the
commission, based on experience,
recommends such favorable arbitration
aa the surest remedy against labor agi
tations and strikes. Tiie action of the <
COujujlnetOu tC> eettli- n StilaO IS unfilled
in the bill as follows:
Tbe national board of arbitration shall
have power, when in their discretion the
public interaata are at eitike, to investi
gate tbe cause of all controversies and
disputes between employees and their
employers in the I'nited States as they ,
may occur, and the conditions accom- 1
panying them and the best nieane of
tbeir adjustment, whether such contro
versies and disputes are submitted for
arbitration or not, and to report there-
On to tne president, who shall from
time to time transmit such reports to
congress. Said board shall have power
to adjust and settle by conciliation all
such disputes and controversies co iar as
it may be possible to do so.

Over tlio Coals.
San Francisco, Deo. 6.—The grand
jury hae finished its report, whioh will
be hied in the superior court this week.
The jury etudied especially the police
court system of San Francisoo, which is
characterized as unworthy and useless.
The jurors found tbat some police
judges have been derelict in duty,
spending only an hour or two a day at
their court rooms. The report stntes
that the work now performed by font
police judges could be done as well by
two, sitting through ordinary judicial
hours, and the abolition of two police
courts, wbicb would involve an annual
saving of tllo.OOO, is vigorously recom
mended. The extraordinary leniency
of certain police judges towards crim
inals with political affiliations, the
bribery, chicanery, straw bonding and
illicit tratfio in papers by police court
officials is sternly condemned and a
thorough purging of the court is urged.

Closing' Scenes in the Hatch
The Courtroom Crowded With Eager
General Hart's Kloqient Argument for
the Defence — Mr. Cook's Reply.
The Date Nearly Ready
for the July.
By tbe Associated rreu.
Woodland, Dec. tt.—At no time dur
ing tiie Wordeu Vnal were there auch
crowds aa are in attendaneo upon the
closing ccencea of tbe Hatch trial. Peo
ple go early in order to get seats, and
those wbo are late never get any nearer
than the corridors.
At 9 ;30 o'clock thia morning General
Hart resumed bia argument. He waa
once more in good voioe. His excoria
tion of ths detectives, Judge Armatrong,
Supervisor Casseiman and others was
even more merciless tban ever. Tba
latter he described aa a railroad emissary
wbo atenda with bia ear to tbe keyhole
to hear those who are testifying. Hs
made a livid word-painting of hired at
torneys, persistent detectives and pet*
jured witneaeea, backed by all that
wealth and innuenoe can command,
hounding a guiltieaa man to the gal
lowa, and then contraated it with the
picture ol a despairing wife, an affec
tionate sister and devoted parents,
hopeful but almost helpless on account
of the stings of poverty. Day after day
tbey have anxiously watched tbe faces
of the jurors for some indication of the
thoughts passing in their minds. Night
after night tbey bave lifted their
prayora to heaven that a loved member
of their family may be aent out of the
courtroom at the close of tbia trial
without a stain upon his character,
General Hart closed at noon, having
occupied nearly eight hours in the de
livery of his argument.
At 1:30 o'clock Mr. Cook began hia
argument for tbe proaecution. He be
gan by saying that tbe doty he felt
called upon to perform ia the moat pain
ful appertaining to tbe profession of the
law, It involves responsibilities that
as an individual he might well wish to
avoid, but as an officer of tbe law he
had taken an oatb not to shirk hie duty.
Mr. Cook's openiug was very impressive
and waa liatened to in breathless silence.
"I am not here," aaid be, "to employ
any of the tricke of oratory or arts of
eloquence to persuade you to do any
thing that the evidence does not compel
you do under your oath aa a jnry. It is
no part of the proaecutiou to appeal to
pasaion and prejudice or to be influenoed
by malice. It ia aa much tbe doty
of the proaecuting officer to
protect the defendant as it ie to protect
the interests of the people. One-fourth
of the cases tried by me during four
years' service as assistant district attor
ney were dismissed on my own motion
because of doubt as to guilt. For 12
hours I bave listened to the argument of |
the defense, hoping that some doubt
would be raised in my mind. I tried to j
diyest myaelf of tbe feeling of an attor
ney and sit as a juror. 1 bave beard i
nothing that shakes my confidence of
the guilt of the accused. A great deal of
the argument for tbe defense bas been
in tbe nature of violent assault upon
everybody connected witb the prosecu
tion aave myself. Mr. Hart knows I
would not lend myself to malicious pros
ecution.- He knows I cannot be hired by
any corporation or any man on earth to
persecute an innocent man, but when I
am employed I will do my duty regard ■
leaa of oonaequencea, but wholly un n
tliienced by malice or improper n o
Mr. Cook deplored the frequency ai d
bitterness of tbe allusions of counsel for
the defense to the special counsel em
ployed, and in reply he ably quoted tbe
language of Daniel Webster in his reply
to a similar assault upon bim when he
waa prosecuting McNabb for the murder
of old man White in Massachusetts.
He urged tbe jury to acquit Hatch if,
upon the conclusion of tbe argument,
there existed a doubt for which a reason
could be given. He did not want any
man convicted unless tbe evidence fully
established his guilt.
"A murder," he anid, "whicb results
from the commission of a felony, al
though tbe murder may not bo premed
itated, is nevertheless murder in the
nrst degree.
"It ia a dastardly and atrocious crime
for men to obstruct or weaken a truck in
a manner tbat must inevitably result in
a wreck and the loss of life. Samuel
Clark and the four soldiers killed on the
11th of July were hurled to destruction
without warning, and tbe men respon
sible for the wreck are guilty of an at
rocious crime."
Mr. Cook then directed bis attention
to General Han's allegation that a great
corporation, and not the people, is be
hind this prosecution.
"Its trains," eaid he, "have been
stopped; its property haa been de
stroyed ; ita employees have been mur
dered ; the lives of its passengers bad
