Monon Officials Are • Defiant By Associated Press. CHICAGO, Nov. 22.— The supreme court of the United States Is to be asked to pass upon the question whether a railroad company can issue transportation in exchange for adver tising in newspapers. A test case is to be made in Illinois, or, rather, an op portunity be Riven to the interstate commerce commissioners to have the courts pass upon their ruling that noth ing but money can be lawfully received or accepted In payment for transporta tion. The justice of this ruling was npt seen by the legal department of the Monon railroad and George Kretzinger, the general counsel, and E. C. Field, the general superintendent, wrote to the Interstate commerce commission and gave their construction of the law backed by decisions of the courtß. The rule they contend as universally stuted and upheld by the courts Is: "What the parties agreed shall con stitute the ' payment, the law will ad judge to be payment. It is competent fur parties to designate in their con fraitin how and in" what payni'«tlt • ttiay be made. It 1b by no means true that payment can only be made in money; on the contrary, It may be made in property or in services." The Inhibition, they added, ngalnst charging a "greater or less or different compensation" refers alone to a dif ference in the "established rate" and not to the manner of making payment. The interstate commerce commission did not reply to the letter of Mr. Kret zinger and Mr. Field, which was dated October 1, and President McDonald of the Monon has issued orders to the passenger department to continue issu ing transportation contracts to news papers in payment for equivalent in advertising. As the interstate commerce commis sion, having made a ruling on the subject, will likely adhere to it, the Monon railroad will sooner or later be notified to appear, and this will be the first step toward a construction by the supreme court of the United States of the commission's interpretation of the new railway rate bill. As the publisher who accepts trans portation is also liable under the law, one who accepts thansportatlQn from the Monon may be also cited to appear In order that both parties to the con tract may have the question of their amenability passed upon at the same tinte.

Mr, Bryan was appointed to head a committee of former presidents of the congress to escort Secretary Shaw to the platform and when these two dis tinguished public men led the Way to the rostrum there was great applause. Secretary Shaw, who spoke particu larly for a wider foreign market for American goods, made this declaration: "If this country ever develops Inter national merchants it will accomplish it by granting them encouragement, not alone by dredging harbors and deepening channels, but by insuring them a merchant marine in which to carry, under the most favorable terms, the products of our .farms, our mine«, our fot*estFi and otff factories."

NEW YORK, Nov. 22.— Hannah Graham, the woman who caused the arrest of Knrlro CaruHo on the charge of annoying- and mistreating her In the monkey house in Central park lusi Friday, may appear In police court to morrow to press the charge against him. | Jnsi before POUrt adjourned tonight at the end of the second day's hear ing of the charge against the singer. Deputy Police Commissioner Mathot, who is' conducting the prosecution, said that he had little more evidence to offer. There was only one witness for the prosecution yet to be heard, he said, and when that witness appeared he would require less than ten minutes to complete his ease. Despite the efforts of the police, it had been found impossible to present the witness today, but he felt safe In assuring the court that the person to whom he referred would be In court tomorrow. A report soon spread that the witness referred to was the missing Hannah Graham. Hannah Graham dropped out of sight when she left the police sta tion five minutes after she had pre ferred the charge against Caruso last Friday afternoon, and witnesses for the prosecution testified that the ut most endeavors had been made to find her. but without avail. Should she appear she would furnish a sensation far greater than any which have marked the two days' hearing In the Yorkville police court. New Sensations Today was not without sensations. When court adjourned lust night Ca ruso was on the stand, and his exami nation wus resumed when the case was taken UP today. Deputy Polios Commissioner Mathot questioned the defendant cloeehi con cerning the four years when he lias appeared in this country under the di rection 'if Heiiirleh Conrled. Caruso acknowledged thai ha was in New York In 1904 and that on Febru ary 4 of that fear be sang In "Parsi fal" ai the Metropolitan opera house. It was at this point that the real sen sation of 'hi' day came. The wide doors directly behind the magistrate's bench swiniK open, and a woman in Whitt "lid with a white veil drawn close!) over her face stepped Into the room. "Caruso, look upon thix woman," said the deputy polios commissioner US the woman raised the veil and re vealed her features. "Did you ever see her before?" The defendant moved uneasily, hesi tated and then replied: "No, I have never seen her," "Did you not, on the afternoon of February 4. 1904, during the second act of 'Parsifal' stand behind this woman in the Metropolitan opera house and subject her to exactly the same Indignities to which It Is charged Hannah (Iruhain kus subjected at the Central park monkey house?" "I did not," replied the defendant. hotly, "l never »aw tha woman be fore, so far an 1 can remember."

One of the features of the day was the appearance for the defense of Dr. Adolpli Densiger, former American consul at Madrid. Dr. Densiger tes ' titled that he was in the monkey house iv Central park during Caruso's visit there Friday and that he ob served no improper action on the singer's part. He declared that he had voluntarily come forward to testify in the singers behalf because he knew him person ally, knew him to be a gentleman and the greatest tenor of this or any other time. Heing a benefactor of humanity, he desired to protect Caruso, not for him self, but for his great career. "I vol unteered to assist Mr. Caruso in ex actly the same way that I volunteered to assist Theodore Roosevelt to be come president of the United States," said Dr. Densiger. He swore that from his observation It would have been a physical impos sibility for Caruso to have acted toward any woman in the monkey house In tbe manner described by De tectlve Cain yesterday. He stood within ten feet of Caruso at the time he was in the building. Heinrich Conried, director of the Metropolitan opera house, described Caruso's mannerisms just as did Dr. Densiger. "To be brief, he is pompous, Is he Hot?" asked Mr. Mathot. "It would be more kind to speak of it as a habit." replied Mr. Conrl«d. Several other witnesses testified ns to Caruso's inability to speak English and the hearing was then adjourned until tomorrow. The police court room again housed SX great crowd today and hundreds were unable to gain admittance. GRAND JURY RESUMES EXTORTION INQUIRY By Associated Press.
