•iHOMMISSIOXER FRANKLIN K. LANE-is diplomatic in his
.1 utterances respecting the future of Mr. Harriman. "Will
'\J Harriman go to jail ?" asks the reporter' "I hope not," replies
-.Mr. Lane with all the solemnity of official propriety, but he
intimates that the interstate commerce commission is prayerfully
considering the facts that may involve prosecution of the nimble
\u25a0\yitted financier and railroad magnate. """Nevertheless, it is quite
.doubtful whether the facts elicited in the recent investigation will
carry Mr. Harriman far on the path to the penitentiary. His opera
ticijs, although on occasion pretty close to the border line, were
•carefully guarded and obviously taken under advice of the . best
corporation lawyers. . ,
There is, for instance, Harriman's contract with Senator Clark
|or. control of the Salt Lake and San Pedro line. That agreement,
in' the first place, was ostensibly concerned only with local business
and "contracts in restraint of trade were not at that time forbidden
by. the California statute. Since the Cartwright law went into
effect this contract has been abrogated.
Then the plea is made that Harriman, acting for- the Union
Pacific, built the Salt Lake road jointly with Clark, and his lawyers
contend that there is no law forbidding a railroad to parallel its
own- line. The fact that this new railroad would be a competitor
iv" other hands does not take away the right to build. 'Suppose
Oiat Clark were eliminated altogether and the Salt Lake road had
.been built by the Union Pacific. It will scarcely be contended
that this would be forbidden by the Sherman law against trusts.
Considering the merger of the Southern Pacific with the
.Union" Pacific, that question is found to be likewise :• perplexed
by doubt. In the first place, the Union Pacific does not own a
majority of the Southern Pacific stock/ It holds enough for all
practical purposes of control, and, in fact, does control. If the
court should hold that this amounts to a merger, then the plea
will be made that the purchase was to secure for the Union Pacific
its necessary and natural extension by way of the Central Pacific, and
the fact that the property includes the Sunset route, which should
be a competing road, is merely an accident of business that ought
hot to prejudice the Union Pacific's right to seek an outlet. to the sea.
This reasoning is rather specious, but in considering it we
. must have regard for the complexion of the United, States supreme
court. That body decided the Northern, Securities merger case
by a 5 to 4 vote, and one of the majority. Justice Brewer, reached
his conclusion by a different route from that traveled by his.asso
ciates. In fact, he held that only evil and. unhealthy combinations
in restraint of trade were prohibited. It is clear, therefore, -that
these questions are full of doubt.
Harriman as the terror of Wall street is another thing.- The
interstate "commerce commission will no doubt make sundry
severe and well merited remarks about Harriman's stock deals.
.The. inflation of Chicago and Alton was. perhaps, the "most, daring
and scientific scheme of the kind ever worked out, but it appears
tojiave been done within the law. Then Harriman borrowed
?1.*.000.000 on the credit of Union Pacific, and he has been using
that immense fund for- speculative purposes ever since. Within
three weeks he has asked the market to supply him with $75,000,000
more on Union Pacific securitvv and he proposes to use a con
siderable part of that sum in paying for stock purchases bought
by him for Union Pacific account since last June and amounting
to $103,000,000. In June the Union Pacific cash surplus was
$55,000,000, but that is all invested and more morieyiieededrto pay ;
for, the purchase of Illinois Central, Baltimore and Ohio, Atchison
and other- stocks. •
There is no reason why this process should hot go on
indefinitely, unless ! the interstate ; commerce commission can find - a
way to stop.it, and It is clear that such a way Has; riot yet been-found:
ONE remembers a more quiet time in San Francisco, when the
whole town watched'at the bedside, as one might say, of a
gentle woman, whose life hung in the 'while • the
.nation's, chief executive, her the well beloved
McKinley. waited for the sentence of life and death that Dr. {Rixey.
was to pronounce. In that day of dolor none thought this fragile
woman would outlive her stalwart husband ; none could foresee
the tragedy of his untimely taking off. It was hot ; for the*' presi
dent of a great nation that San Francisco so freely gave her sym
pathy, but rather for the plain American •'husband, the head of- a
family in whom. the national ideals attained their highest type. .
The people loved McKinley because he was a good husband
ofa good wife.- They respected «him for his ability and ;stateVman
like qualities; they knew, that the country; was ..safe in . his handsf;
but their affections were given to him because: his admirable and
yet simple family life offered the finest model" for the : Amen-

JUDGE CARROLL COOK is troubled about ethics which/appar
ently, is in conflict with the sentiments of, his breeches pocket.
He has been;offered $50,(XX>-— so his press agent; states— -to un
i dertake the defense of Mr. Patrick Calhoun, a 'wealthy and i two
; fisted gentleman, at. present under, .a cloudi^ Judge ;Cdok: has- acquired
| a certain' reputation as 1 a defender, of criminals. . -There'' is a pre vailing
doubt- in the^pubiicvmind: whether he is 'i more dangerous ; off f,the
bench or on* the' bench. Judge Cook explains -to his. press, agent "the
doubts* that .perplex him sorely in these words : . \u25a0.\u25a0\u25a0::% \u25a0\u25a0-.\u25a0,. r ,
; . 'It is a question of ethics with -me. I feel 'that I have been elected - by,
the people of the state of California for six "years .and that, they i; are -entitled
; to my services for that time, ; and I . do not feel ' that I would . be justified 'in
resigning until my r term* has expired. ." : -' " • - \"
: Fifty thousand dollars has been mentioned, but I am of the opinion that
even that would not tempt me.. I' have /not made up my mind .fully yet,
but I think that I will stay on the bench.- If I had^employed aj man to
work for six years* and he should leave \u25a0my employ some one else
offered him more money, I think that: I would" not hire that man "again. *y
As between two bundles of hay Judge; Cook will probably. choose
the larger. Questions of ethics are luxuries for criminal lawyers.
; And as for the teirder sentiment that he confesses for ; the feelings of
I the people who hired him he might well feel himself > absolved tfrom
any solicitude on that score by ., the \u25a0 returns of the last election. \The
vote on that occasion demonstrated that his employers had not much!
use for Judge Carroll Cook. . *. •\u0084

THERE was .a. time when it was
allegedi that" the new rulings- of
the interstate commerce comrais-
sion would be as balm in Gilead
and would bring ,!n their train the
healing of many wounds and be looked
upon by the merchant as well as the
railroadman as a blessing. < This hope
has not been fulfilled, for the rulings'- of

thrs*to T say:
"The -rulings .of -I the ;; interstate : com
merce" commission are 'so conflicting and
at}. variance i,with'- each j other 'and ; with
the^published tariffs^of railroad'compa
nies .\ that .5 it >; seems : ,- peculiar ; that v the
president. does not appoint =at> least one
practical tariff man on. the commission.
One ; instance of . this , is the ruling made
recently forbidding the* use of a com
bination /of ; locals -when" thej published
through^rateWas' higher. ; At the time
the ; ruling/ was made { the v rate on: illu
minating^oil was made, by : using the
local : rate from f points 'east \of Chicago
in connection. with : 7B % cents ] rate west
of .^that* point., The ruling necessitated
using/ the through ;.rate* of the ; fifth
class, under the western- clasiflcation.
This . rate\was, $1.65 per. 100 pounds,'. a>»
against the former combination of any-"
where from"9o -cents^to $1."- Similarly
the. west, bound 'rate on canned, goods
f rom ; the . Missouri t. river and interme
diate territory .was : made by using the
locaMo .terminal territory. in connection
with? the commodity rates, • which were
from* 75 "cents} to, $l-\? The ruling as it
stillvstands xproh'ibits^the. use of the
combination and makes the $1.65 rate
apply.; The merchant, /of T' course, has
the L of : - shipping > his .goods ; toY a

\u25a0 _-.- , , c - Jack Wilson is fond of relating a little
Comedy IS bnactea comedy he witnessed not long ago on a de-
Otl a Delayed Train i aye< i coast line train. Hoar after hour the
cars had been motionless. Hope of' reaching San Francisco that night had
vanished. All but one of the passengers in the Pullman accepted the delay
philospphically The exception was a wealthy San Francisco man of affairs,
and to all who would listen he told his troubles.
"This delay means thousands of dollars to me. I should have been in
San Francisco tonight* to sign an important lease," he said. "The option
expires at midnight and I stood to clean up a fortune. This is an outrage," etc.
The rich man's fellow passengers had troubles of their own. His tale
of woe elicited no sympathetic comment until the colored porter overheard
Dives' plaint.
- "I unnerstan' jes how you all feel, sah," said the porter; "I oughter
be in Oakland tonight mahself. Mah 111*1 gal she's gwine graduate tonight,
and I 'lowed as I was gwine be dar fo' sho'."
The men who had lent deaf ears to Dives' sorrow gathered around the
porter, "expressed sympathy for his disappointment "and cheered the darky
by v tnaking up a purse to be presented; to the "li*l girl" graduate the next
day by way of, recompense for the absence of her father on the great
- . Dives did not subscribe, but he _ finished the trip in silence.
