asked to accept election ¦ to the Northern
Pacific board; of directors under the re
construction which is, now under way; in
accordance with the agreement between
the Union Pacific interests and J. J. Hill.
This left the selection of the Northern
Pacific board to J. P. Morgan, but it is
likely that all the names will be agreed
to • by the , time he reaches this country.
Mr. Vanderbllt has not given his accept
ance of election to the -Northern Pacific
board, so fac as could be learned to-day.
If he declines, H. McK. Twombley will
be asked to go into the board. Both Mr.
vanderbilt and Mr,- Twombley are direc
tors of the Chicago and \ Northwestern.
Their election to the Northern Pacific
board will not, however, indicate an,in
terest of the Northwestern In the North
ern Pacific stocks so much as a desire to
operate that property in the interest of
harmony among the -Western < railways.
The other new names to be. selected for
the new Northern Pacific board will rep
resent just as, broad-minded purposes as
would Mr. Vanderbllt or Mr. Twombley. .

It is understood that the charges made
by Sir Blundell Maple are of a serious
nature. It Is said that In one case an

KANSAS CITT. 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. The attorney, said he would prove
that the defendant had received .; most
brutal treatment "at the hands of the
husband, which had caused her to 'kill
him during a temporary " fit ,' of Insanity.
They would show positively, the attorney
said, that the woman's father, and
brothers had absolutely no part in the
murder, knowing of the woman's, act
only after it had -been committed. '
The State's first witness proved.Impor

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."

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. In the course of time
my syndicate will be represented by direc
tors of the board of the Underground

that." - ij • ¦ . -. -:~c:'.' v

LONDON, June 6.— A special meeting of
the District Railway to-day sanctioned
Charles T. 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.

WASHINGTON. June 6.— In view of the
several representations made In Havana
regarding the interpretation by the Sec
retary of War to the Cuban commission
ers of the Platt amendment, It can be
stated authoritatively that the Secretary,
did not deviate from the declaration that
the President and himself had no power
to change an act of Congress. 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.
It Is understood that the letter will reach
Havana within a very short time. It has
been delayed in the mail.

- ' The i, trustees of ' the Kansas Wesleyan
University have refused to re-elect Profes
sor F. , D. Tubbs to the chair of natural
sciences, which he has held for the past
two years. The cause of dismissal is what
Is known among the Methodist clergy as
"hipher criticism" of the Bible. a mild
phrase for heresy. No formal charges are
preferred against Dr. Tubbs. The trus
tees simply left him out In making up
their faculty ; for the .- ccming ¦ year. Dr.
Tubbs returned two-or three years ago
from South America, having' been sta
tioned in Argentine as 3 missionary. It
is said that his theological views at that
time were responsible for his recall, and
after his return . he was " warned, not to
spread 'his doctrines among the students.
If is "said he has been holding private
classes at his home on '.'Higher Criticism."
The students are circulating a petition of
remonstrance - against • Dr.' Tubbs' re
