June 6.— When Lulu Prince-Kennedy entered court' this morn ing it was to hear the outline of her case in the trial for murdering her husband, made by Attorney - Nearing for the de-; fense.

Beyer was thus left practically without any transport or supplies.: Machinist Strike Justified. On general principles Tayler thought a difceussion of the tariff at this time would be unwise and undesirable. He did not consider trusts the outgrowth of protecr tion, but conceded that incidentally some trusts might be benefited by protection, "just as the sun may cause weeds to crow." Speaking of the strike of the machinists Gunton said It was perfectly right, as he believed that labor was justified in organ izing a capital for the protection of its Interests. He said, however, that the ma chinists were blameworthy. In that they had agreed to arbitrate and then had failed to live up to their agreement. He favored compulsory education and a law limiting the hours of labor. Referring to Atkinson. Gunton said that his views were all born of theory and that when the opinion got abroad that theories akin to Atkinson's were about to be enacted Into law there came near being general bank ruptcy. Tayler announced himself as opposed to the principle involved in trusts because, he said, he considers human nature too v.eak to entrust In a few people such a power as is involved in trusts. He thought abuses were certain and that the result would be what he called Gover rnental socialism or Governmental owner ship of articles controlled by the trusts. "Do you ' know of any combine that actua controls any Industry?" Clarke cfked. Tavler said that he did not. "Is not the United States Steel Corpor ation on the border of obtaining absolute control?" asked Colonel Livingston. "1 cannot answer that question either yes or no." replied the witness, "but there are many large iron and steel concerns not in the combine. Iron ore and. coal are widely distributed, and I do not be lieve that any one will ever get absolute control of them." Tayler said that, distrustful as he was of the trusts, he had no remedy to sug .gest. He did not accept the theory that the trusts alone could be trusted to re duce the cost of commodities. Instanc ing the United States Steel Corporation, he said that its securities amounted to fl.500,000,000, while the cost had not been one- third that amount. He had no doubt that the holders of these securities would demand returns upon them. He said he •would oppose the Babcock bill placing iron products on the free list, because the re sult would be to destroy independent ef fort, while It would not especially injure the trusts, as with them the only effect could be to reduce labor. Abuses Certain to Follow Trusts. WASHINGTON. June 6.— The Industrial Commission at its cession to-day consid ered the tariff question with incidental reference to trusts, the witnesses being Congressmen Robert W. Tayler of Ohio and George Gunton, president of the New York Institute of Social Economics. Tay ler took the position that any discussion in Congress of the tariff at this time would have a damaging effect upon the country- He said the DIngley law was the most equitable tariff law the United States had ever had. He took a decided j>oeitjon against trusts and said they were not fostered by • the protective tariff. Tayer also said that he believed in the i principles of recinrocity but that he did not indorse any "of the recently negoti- Eted reciprocity treaties. Gunton devoted himself especially to re plying to an argument recently made be fore the commission by Edward Atkin sou for freer trade. Gunton said that the freedom contended for by the opponents of the tariff is analogous to the freedom of the savage, a fieedom which if in dulged in too freely not only brings In jury but ruin to himself. Upholds the Dingley Law. Tayler announced the general principle that the histcry of this country for the past few years and the conditions demand that there should 'not be the slightest re laxing of the tariff principle as now em bodied In the Dingley law. The relation of the tariff to trusts, he said, is only in cidental. The Dingley law embodies, he said, the idea that American civiliza tion is on a higher plane than any other and requires a higher reward for its labor to maintain that excellence. When ever the labor cost is greater than else where It Is necessary that there should be un equalizing influence such as the Dingley law. Primarily,^ therefore, the protective tariff law was in the interest of labor. Even the farmer, he said, gets a reciorocal benefit; • "How Is the farmer benefited by the tariff on steel T' asked Colonel Living ston. "In the first place." replied the witness, "there Is not much . tariff . on steel and Iron, except possibly on tin plate. We pay out In wages not less than $20,000,000. That means that the consuming power of the American people at home is increased to that extent, and I think that. the effect of that increased consumption is sufficient to recoup the farmer for any supposed In crease of the cost to him of iron and steel articles which he may purchase." ed Before Industrial Commission. Congressman Tayler Takes Stand Against All the * Trusts. DingleyLaw Commend- DISCUSS TRUSTS AND THE TARIFF "Yes," said .Yerkes when interviewed to night, "we have : practically got control of the Underground' Railway. That is what it amounts to. 'My syndicate is com* posed of British and American financiers, although far the largest portion of the capital comes from the United States. We hope to begin, work .in a few months, as the consent of Parliament has been ob tained. 'The system we intend to Install is al most exactly similar to that in use on the elevated lines in Chicago. We will sell the present antiquated cars and sub stitute others of an American pattern. We intend to rebuild the stations, to install arc lights. and to make the road equal to any rapid transit line in the world. "Yes, we must have American engineers to do the work. They know nothing about that sort of thing here. I tell you what is the trouble with the English concerns is 1 that they do not know the value of a scrap heap. As to the agitation over the United States buying up England it Is i absurd. Years, ago British .capital con ; trolled' the bulk of the American railroads. Since then Great Britain has been on the decline and the United States has pro- Kcessed. As a natural result the circum stances are now reversed. ' English. Company Now Satisfied. "When I first proposed to take over the Underground Railway the English com pany raised all sorts of objections, but gradually they came around and they ap pear to be perfectly satisfied with the bargain. "No, I cannot say who are in with me. However, I wish to assert distinctly that the report that the Widener-Elkins group is in any way connected with the syndi cate is absolutely untrue. I intend to re main here for a considerable time, as there are likely to be several things need- Ing my personal attention." . , After declining to say whether he con "templated buying up other roads, Mr. Yerkes concluded with a declaration that the remodeled Underground Railway would be far superior to the existing Lon don "tube." . "The people who built that," said he, "krew nothing except how to dig holes. Everything else is wrong. - Chicago is ahead of the rest of the world in electric traction. If they had studied the Chicago system they might have given London bomethring better.

Terkes" plan for the introduc tion of electricity as the motive power of the road. J. S. Forbes, the president, said the work would occupy two years. The agreement with Yerkes provided for the formation of an electric traction company to electrify the road. Mr. Yerkes, ¦who represented sixteen of the most influential firms, bankers and capitalists, was ready to stake £1,000,000 to help the railroad relieve its position. The syndi cate had already bought shares to the value of £1,250.000 and was ready to buy as many more. It had to construct a gener ating station at Chelsea, make the neces sary alterations in the permanent way and construct fresh rolling stock. - Half a million of ordinary stock paid to the Trac tion Company was taken at the nominal price of £25, and £166,000 was taken in 4 per cent debentures at par. Five per cent interest was to be paid the Americans on the outlay. A syndicate of 'bankers had undertaken to put up £1,000,000 as security for carrying out the contract.

It is said here that the amendi&ents which the Cu ban convention made to the Platt law and the incorporation of conversations with Secretary Root did not represent his views of the amendment, nor was he cor rectly quoted in the alleged statement.; Among the reports given out in Havana is the translation of a letter of Senator Platt, written to the Secretary of War, furnished as a confidential document to the Cuban commissioners when , they ¦were here. This letter briefly gives the views of .the Connecticut Senator on some features of the law which bears his name. Surprise was expressed that the letter should appear in print In Havana- General Wood telegraphed the depart ment to-day inquiring as to the where abouts of the letter of Secretary Root explaining in detail the objections to the actions of the constitutional convention.
