V The Minnesota rate case decision of yesterday, in which the supremo court held that the state has the riphf to H fix rnllroad charges not In confli- t H with interstate rates Is a victory for the state which strengthens the hands i of every state railroad commission in I1 J the country. Had Utah a railroad commission, i maximum rates could he prescribed in all business within the state, even in fl eluding paBscncer travel, and the rail- roads would be unable to successfully li.J flsht against this control over traffic But the supreme court still maintains that this privilege can he tak'n from H h tfce State bj congress whenever the W federal legislative body sees fit to B bo regulate rates. This drlHinn should lead to an early asserting of that power by con-ar- -s in order to avoid confusion over , Interstate commerce which has been blended with Interstate traffic and to Ji do away with the prospective danpc ! of state politics and rate-making be- H coming closely allied, to the demor.i- lization of politics H The strongest feature of the deci sion and the point which may prove most objectionable to the railroads In the declaration that the burden of proof of confiscation falls upon th railroad. The dispatches state that as a re nult of the opinion, several railroads operating In Minnesota will pay Into the state treasury approximately $3,- 000.000 In the shape of overcharges The state legislature, taking cogniz ance of the Injunction proceedings I brought to restrain Minnesota from V putting into effect merchandisp nnl commodity freight rates promulgated by the railroad and warehouse com mission and approved by the two lav making bodies, passed a law requiring the railroads to keep books' cover ing all freight charges made and to file the same monthh with the sta'c This was done to allow iersons over charged to collect the difference Hbould the state win. The reports ' demanded began with June 1, l!u)! unri since then the railroad and ware house commission has been recei. Ing and filling them. They cover ev iTv shipment in the state since the date named. In order that shippers mitfht not be hampered by annoying litigation, the 1009 legislature in ar ranging for reports covering freight flhipments declared that when the case was settled and If in favor of the State, that the money in controvers tthould be turned ovr to the state nnd returned to persons overcharged. Wall street had a nervous period this morning, owIpe to the unfavorable light in which the decision was viewed by the big railroad interests, and the BtDCk: brokers Stocks which havc bern tumbling for six month3 or more, went to new low levels. There is a nervous feeling In the big financial centers, which started with President Wilson's radlcaj free trade dclara I Hons, and has been Increasing as new shocks, such as the Minnesota rate case decision, have been Inflicted. There Is nothing left for the rail roads to do other than urge the fed rral government to extend tlf power of the interstate commerce commis slon to well into the twilight 7,one of state rights.

CALEB A. INLOW'S CONFESSION. Mrs Caleb A InloW, wife of the con victed murderer of "Eddie" Whlt. w;ts released From the salt Lake coun ty jail yesterday, after having made a statement in which Bhe Ib alleged to have admitted that she lured White to the spot where h was killed b her husband, although at the time she did not know that her husband con templated murder This tends to prove Inlow to be B COld-blooded premeditated murderer, and it does not lift from the wife very much of the guilt of an accomplice l p to the time of this confession, we had hoped, for the good of woman kind, that Mrs. Inlow would clear her self of direct complicity To the av erage person deliberate murder Is unthinkable, and only after absolute proof of a crime so diabolical Is pre sented can one come to accept it i a fact think of the criminal ot that type as a low-browed, coarse, de graded, vile person whose mind is clouded and whose soul is calloused, but in this case we have a school teacher and his wife, a woman of fine appearance and of good family, to whom a community had looked for pre cept and example and In whom morals were supposed to be well established This Inlow case is a perplexing study in human nature perverted. PROTECTING THE CHILD WORKER. Many articles shipped to this coun try are the product of either little children or convict labor, so the na tional child labor committee, through Senator VI illiam B Borah cC Idaho, offered the following amendment to the pending tariff hill ' That all goods, wares, articles and merchandise manufactured wholly or in part in anv foreign country by con vict labor; or by children under 11 years of age, or bv children under 16 years of age employed for more than eighl hours per day or forty eight hours per week, or by boys under 1 years of age, or women over 16 years of age employed for more than nine hours per day or fifty-four hours per week, shall not be entitled to entry at any ports of the United States nnd the importation thereof is hereby pr. hlbited and the secretary of the treas ury is authorized and directed to pro vide such regulations as may be nec essary for the enforcement of this provision." In explanation of their position, the members of the child labor committee stated that they believe this proposed amendment is particularly timely be cause man American manufacturers already feel the pressure of the pro posed tariff reductions and they may vary justh complain that they ac placed in unfair competition with Im porters manufacturing in countries which do not offer protection to chil dren. Already thirteen states forbid the employment of children under 16 years of age for more than eight rours a day In all Industries; while eight additional states forbid such employ ment in specified lists of industries. Thirty-six states forbid the employ ment of children under 14 years in factories. In discussing the bill Senator Borah said. "It will either be a godsend to thousands and thousands of people ill the old countries or It will be some I protection to our people here." oo PEACE CONFERENCE COMPLETE FAILURE London.

This system will give a much better line on a pitcher's abili ty than the old system, and gives a pitcher of ability a chance to make a showing even though he Is with a losing team The following circular letter which President Johnson has sent to all of ficial scorers gives a clear idea of just what a pitcher will have to show in order to get a good position anions the twirlers of the league, and it eliminates all doubt as to which of several pitchers should be charged With a defeat or get credit for a vic tory, as the case may be; To Offl cial Scorers: Must Use Judgment.

JOHNSON oo MATTY HAS IT IN FOR MURPHY If there's one team in the National league the (Mants want to beat, es pecially the great and only Chris Ma thewson, It is the Chicago Cubs. An other foolish -tory penned hy C Webb Murphy whlc h appeared in a Chicago paper last week has aroused the ire of Matty and the Giants. Here Is the paragraph in a recent stor bearing the name of Mathewson it was stated that he did not have the same amount of re spect for the Cubs' pitching staff, and the team In general, that he did for several other teams. This statement follows closely upon our refusal to pur chase Insurance from Mr. Mathewson. as 1 told him any insurance that we had to give would go to Chicago men. It seems to me that if he would con centrate his mind on his work he would better avail his mission In base ball than by criticising other clubs " And so. the Giants and Matty are after the Cubs Matty was asked if there was any truth to Murphy's state ment of refusing to take' Insurance from the big pitcher, and he replied In uncomplimentary tones to the Cubs' chief. He's Laying for Cubs. "Mr Murphy simply is trying to put blame on somebody else," said Mat ty. "It is a joke for him coming back with anything about me trying to sell insurance, and never to the best of my recollection did I ask Mr Murphy to allow me to insure either himself or his team. "And Mr. Murphy says I ought to concentrate my mind on ray work. Well, this old right whip has got a few more curves left and some speed, tood. and jusl watch me when I work against the Cubs in the next series "11 I want us to do Is to bent out the Cubs, and I know that will be easy Mr Murphy can't stand de feat, and he Is trying to Jolly along the Chicago fans " WE OFFER TWO UNPRECEDENTED MILLINERY SPECIALS FOR WEDNESDAY f 1 LADIES' Mlkdk CHILDREN'S UNTRIMMED ITI TRIMMED HATS liJfl!

He was the only one of his kind and for nearly 20 years he was one of ihe richest cards that ever played the game. Always a mighty slugger, no one ever accused him of having the lightning thoughts of a Kelly or a Ruck Ewing concealed about him. but he went right along just the same, saved lots of his money and quit well satisfied. Toward the last of Jake's career the younger generation worried him a lit tle. When an ambitious youth, find Ing all lockers in the dressing room occupied, threw the old man's clothes on the floor with a shout of "Gang way for live ones!" Jake was an noyed immensely. He began to real ize that he had gone back physically and, as he was never famed for foxy craftness, he feared his day was done. Just to make a final flash and also make the younger generation look foolish, Jake sat him down alone, and did some heavy cogitating. La boriously enough, he evolved a scheme of upsetting the opposing outfit's base running and then went grinning to the field to make a demonstration. For sceveral years the hostiles had been showing up old Jake's arm an arm which, the critics said, should have been embalmed along with Phar aoh Necho. With a man on third and a man on first it was the custom to start a double lead off the bases The pitcher, as a rule, would peg to Jake and the runner on third would in stantly break for home. It would lake Jake till perhaps 8:;!0 p m to realize what the sassy thing was doing; then he would throw home and the runner would beat the ball by 20 feet. If lie hadn't started soon enough to beat the throw the ball was almost sure to j fall half way upon the sod and he could wall; in while the fuming catch er regainoti the helpless pill. Jake had done some great figurine He felt that he couldn't make the 90 foot throw home with old-time strength, but he still had tremendous power for a heave of maybe SO feet. This was his idea The first time the enemy tried that double steal he. Jake, instead of lingering around first, would be far up toward second ; he would take the ball, let the runner on third do as he liked, send the ball to Brasher, who was playing second, and get the victim before the one at DUTCH MASTERPIECES "Learn One Thing Every Day."

He had a season of real prosperity ami might have beeome rich, but after a time the commissions Interfered "ith his drinking, and that was some thing that Frans could not endure He loved the tavern better than the stu dlo; but his mastery over the brush enabled him to produce a vast amount of work In a very short time He liked better, however, to paint the jolly topers and the flsherwlves than the ngh burghers The time came when he "sweated", hla many pupils, mak ing them draw and paint BUbje I which he paid them little or nothing which he sold at fair prices to me I his weekly tavern hills.

When he was 7' years old a baker, who not only gave him bread but lent him money as well, appealed to the courts to compe Hals to pay his debts The painter's house was seized and the contents sold tr the highest bl 1 der.

Perhaps it is Earl Stanhope is reported to have been of the opinion thai life hero is very slow. And it may be. The average 'ew Yorker believes that Father Knickerbocker is right when he jokes about the matter with his contagious hilarity. If he. the New Yorker, has to spend n day here he feels so tickled to get back to Seventh avenue that he be gins to class that thoroughfare with Regent street. London, and the Rue do la Paix, across the channel. The trouble with him is that he doesn't read our statistics. Here are a few we have In hind for him. They are about us ourselves. They are per sonal and highlv satisfactory. (New York papers please copyi Philadelphia is the greatest home City in the world.
