BROKEN ARM UNATTENDED FAITH FAILS TO MEND A FRACTURE GIRL SUFFERS UNTOLD AGONY THREE DAYS Swollen Member Must Be Attended to at Once or Father Will Be Ar. rested for Cruelty to Children Suffering untold agonies from the pain of a broken arm, little Mildred Crawford, tha 10-year-old daughter of F. M. Craw ford, a real estate dealer with offices on South Main street, was found by officers of the Humane society at the home of her parents, 149 East Avenue Fifty-three, yesterday afternoon. Since Thursday night the little girl had Buffered, and during that time no physi cian, say the officers, had been called to attend her. The members of the family, including the little girl, profess the Apostolic faith. According to the belief of that sect, which Is along the same lines us the Holy Roll ers and Gift of Tongues religions, it Is Bacrellgioirs to allow a physician to at tend a sufferer. For this reason the only person who attended tha little girl was T. Ord Smith of Alameda, one of the teachers of the faith. Late Friday night word was taken to the officers of the Humane society that a little girl was suffering with a broken arm at the Crawford home and that no physician was attending her. Arm Twisted and Swollen Yesterday afternoon a representative of the society went out on a trip of investi gation. The little girl was found sitting with two companions on the porch of the house. Her right arm, twisted and swollen out of snaps, was lying in her lap with no bandage of any nature to keep it In position. "What is the matter? Have you hurt your arm?" asked the officer. "Yes, sir. I fell on it. but it doesn't hurt now." was the reply, while at the Bame moment the little girl's lips were drawn tight In an effort to suppress a groan of agony which seemed driven forth by the pain. "In answer to inquiries the little girl then said: "My arm was injured Thursday after noon while 1 was running up the terrace. A dog got in my way and I fell. Mr. Smith set it for me. No, it did not hurt much except while he was fixing it. "Papa and Mr. Smith are over at the meeting of the members of the Apostolic faith on East Avenue Fifty-eight. Mr. Smith is one of the teachers. Papa and 1 are also members. My mamma Is a teacher of the faith. She is in Portland now, but will return to Los Angeles Tues- Police Surgeon Called Dr. Will C. Trew and Hr. E. H. Gar rett, chief police surgeon, were then cnlled to examine the little girl's arm. These physicians at once agred that the arm was in bad shape and that if not set at once the child would probably be maimed for life. During the examination Mr. Crawford, the child's father, returned to his home, with Mr. Smith. They Informed the phy-_ slclans that they did not deem it neces-" sary to have the arm set by a physician, as it was giving the little girl no pain, and that in all probability it would knit of Itself. Mr. Crawford was then informed by the physicians that unless he agreed to have the bone set at once a complaint charging him with crueliy would be sworn out and the child taken to a hospital where her injury would be treated. The father then agreed to call in Dr. Henry Keyes today and said he would follow that physician's advice. Brave Child Deluded "I have never seen a more aggravated case of cruelty," said Humane Officer Reynolds. "The father was allowing his belief to control him, and the result was the child was suffering untold agonies. She is an exceptionally brave little girl, and was able to control her feelings, as was shown when she denied that she was in "We"will insist taat the child's injury be given proper care, and if it is not properly set by tomorrow morning I win swear out a complaint for the fathers arrest and will take the child to a hos pital. Dr. Garrett and Dr. Trew have both examined the injury and pronounced it a serious one. ""hey say the child needs a surgeon's attention and their words are good enough for the society. It Is true the parents may have religious beliefs against having treatment for in juries, but the Humane society cannot allow that to sway its officers from their "The child's arm is broken a short dis tance above the wrist," said Dr. Garrett last night. "It is criminal to allow it to go without treatment, and If it Is not attended at once the child will suffer all her life. I offered to set the arm while at the house, but the father refused to allow me. "The actions of a man in allowing his child to suffer the pain that little girl is in, simply because he does not believe that a. physician should be called, cannot be too severely condemned. "If the arm is not attended and Craw ford is arrested I will be glad to appear as a witness and testify in regard to my knowledge of the case."

WASHINGTON, July 13.-A report was made public today by the Interstate commerce commission of its Inquiry into the railroad operations of E. H. Harrlmnn, and of the operations of the so called Harrlman lines of rail way, which hfts been In progress for sev eral months. The report, which was written by Franklin K. Lane, is the unanimous ex-. presslon of the commission. The report has been transmitted to President Roose velt and the department of Justice. It Is expected by the commission that It will be determined by the president and Attorney General Bonaparte from the Statements set out in the report whether (he government will institute any sort of proceedings against Mr. Har riman, or the corporation involved in the Inquiry. No recommendations are made by the commission as to whether criminal or civil prosecution be instituted as a re sult of Its Inquiry. The report Is an exhaustive summary of the evidence. of the evidenrc, enters fully Into a dis cussion of the policy pursued by Mr. Har rlman in obtaining and maintaining con trol of the various lines of railway in the Harrlman system, and presents a fairly complete history of the operations of the various lines. Bxcerpta from the verbatim testimony of Mr. Harrlman are given to show, as stated in the report, that "it is only the law which prevents the concentrating in Mr. Harriman's hands of every railroad line lying between Canada and Mexico" Is the frank admission of Mr. Harriman himself, made at the hearing. Has Great Ambition "To gather under ono head all existing transcontinental lines or as many as pos sible, and to exclude the incoming of all competitors, became manifestly the Har riman policy, which was inaugurated in 1901 by the 'issuance of $100,000,0(10 of con vertible bonds by the Union Pacific." Mr. Harrlman's eventual control of many of the competing transcontinental lines was prevented, it is pointed out. by the supreme court's decision in the North rn S. purities casp. It is shown by the report that it has not been the Harrlman policy to permit the properties brought under Union Pacific control to decline, as in every case they are better today than they were when Mr. Harrlman acquired them. Particular stress Is laid by the commis sion on the elimination of competition in transcontinental business among the Har rlman lines, and the combination indl catps that is the matter of large signifl rnncp developed in its inquiry. Special reference Is made to the deal hv which Mr. Harriman secured control of the Salt Lake road and manipulation of the Chicago & Alton, a very carcflu synopsis of thp financial operations in both instances being given. Concerning the Chicago & Alton transaction the com mission says: Makes Damaging Admission "It was admitted by Mr. Harrlman that there was about $nn,000,000 worth of stock and liabilities issued against which no property had been acquired, and this is undoubtedly an accurate estimate. 'The commission further says concern- REAR ADMIRAL ADMITS SOME DEFECTS EXIST POINTS OUT IMPERFECTIONS OF BATTLESHIPS Brownson Says Oregon, Kentucky and Kearsarge Were Best of Their Day When They Were Built By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, July 13.-Regardlng a series of special articles in a service publication which have to some extent been reproduced in the daily press criti cising adversely the battleships of the navy Rear Admiral Brownson today Baid '""Th'atThcVe are defects in the Oregon the Kentucky and the Kearsarge is well known; in fact, these defects were dis covered before the completion ot these shins but the wonder is that there are so few defects considering that they were tL first heavy battleships built In this "compared to the battleships of other naUo£ Tsigned and built at the Bame time the Oregon class was conspicuously superior- in fact, that class was referred oTy the leading British technical papers at the time as fhe 'peerless baUleship, and the interior arrangement and other points were of special excellence. "It is time that their armor was badly placed, but that arose from an addition to the ships of a great amount o ma terial, stored and machinery not included in the original design. "It is also true that they lacked bal anced turrets, but when they were built there were no such wreta in any navy. "Their eight-Inch ammunition tubes were also not sufficiently protected. As to the criticism directed at the larger size of the ports in the turrets, these had been corrected in later designs by bringing the trunnions of the guns nearer to .the front of the turrets, so that the battleships of later design are free from this defect "As to the gun platforms, which Is the main purpose of the ship, the Oregon class has no superior, and even at this late date they should give a cood account of themselves in action.

In Its conclusion the commission says: "The effect of the control of the South ern Pacific by the Union Pacific has been to unify and amalgamate the manage ment of these two roads and steamship lines and to eliminate competition be tween them in transcontinental business and In business to and from oriental .ports. "The joint control of the Alton rallrond by the Union Pacific and tho Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway company has undoubtedly eliminated competition between the Alton and the Rock Island between Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. "These are conspicuous illustrations of the 'community of interests' and 'har mony of management' which Mr. Harrl man suggested when he demanded repre sentation upon the Santa Fe board. "If the policy of purchasing and con trolling stocks In competing lines Is per mitted to continue. It must mean suppres sion of competition." Commission's Recommendation The recommendations of the commis sion, which are more general than spe cific In terms and application, say that the function of a railway corporation should be confined to the furnishing of transportation and that railways should not be permitted to invest generally in the securities of other railway and steam ship companies, excepting connecting lines for the purpose of forming through routes of transportation, Including branches and feeders. Its surplus funds, says the report, should he used for tho betterment of Its lines and In extensions. In conclusion the report says: "Competition between railways as well as hetwppn othpr Industries Is the estab lished policy of the nation. And while the acquisition of small minority stocks of a competing line might not decrease the competition, yet the acquisition nf any considerable amount of stock, with representation on the board of directors of such railroads, unquestionably has the effect of diminishing competition and lessening to an extent Its effectiveness. The time has come when some reasonable regulation should be imposed upon the Issuance of securities by railroads en gaged in Interstate commerce." In the opinion of the commission regu lation will tend to make securities safer and more secure for Investments, and therefore benefit not only the railroads but the public. Harriman Dominates "Within three years after the reorgan ization of the Union Pacific Railroad com pany In 1896 Mr. Harrlman became the dominating spirit in that corporation. "As chairman of the executive commit tpe he exercised powers that are well nigh absolute. The directors have dele gated their power to manage and direct all the business and affairs of the com pany to an executive committee of five members, who shall act 'In such manner as such committee shall deem best for the company's Interest In all cases In which specific directions shall not have been giv-pn by the board,' and in turn the chairman of the executive committee is (Continued on Pane Three.)
