Progressive Republicans and
Democrats Say Measure
Nullifies Hepburn Act
Steamship Companies Fear Pro
vision Giving Commerce
Commission Authority
[Special Dispatch to The Call] #
WASHING TON, March 6. — The " ad
ministration railway bill will be the
next big measure to come before the
innate. It is not to be taken up for
10 days or two weeks, but will then be]
made the unfinished business and
I>rcsjsed for passage.
It is estimated that six weeks to two
months will be required for debate. Ijic
bill will be bitterly opposed by the
proirrespive republicans and democrats,
who <le< lare that It nullities the Hep
burn a.c t. On account of the irritation t>.- !
iwt-fn the president and the progressives
and betwieen the two factious «i »*j>ui»
licans in the senate an optn rupture is
txp<cte<l before a vote is reached.
One «if the detects in the railway bill
K. which attention will be called on the
floor of the senate is that if the bill is
j>;is=se.i as it stands now it will permit
the Harriman merger. At least, this
is the view taken by some good law
yers about the senate. They hold that
the bill wuuld compel the government
to drop the Harriman merger suit for
the nason that under the proposed law
such ;i merger would be legalized.
Steamship companies along the At
lintlc are paid to be greatly alarmed
•over the provision which places coast
:*\ise steamers under the supervision of
the interstate commerce commission.
Some of them go so far as to say that
the bill proposed will "practically an
nihilate the coastwise and inland water
\u25a0.transportation companies."
.. " The postal savings bank bill will be
received by the house tomorrow and
promptly sent to several weeks' ob
livion in committee. The administra
tion bill will have the center of the
senate and the house will con
tinue its consideration of appropriation
.Members of the house are beginning
to analyze the amendments made to
the postal savings bank bill last Sat
urday. The one that is causing the
roost comment is that which will pre
vent postal funds from being invested
in 2 per cent government bonds, while
making all higher Interest bearing se
curities available for such investment
In Time of war or other exigency.
In the light of President Taffs New
York speech calling attention to the ob
ligation of the government to see. that
lioldTs of 2 per cent consols should
not suffer loss, and suggesting that the
government give the holders relief by
using postal funds to buy these low
class bonds, some members of congress
*?fe in the senate action a direct slap
at the president. -
In only one other way is the adoption
of the amendment explained, and that
is by the fact that those who were in
charge of the bill believed it could be
passed only by making concessions to
insurgent senators. It was charged
on the democratic side that the adop
tion of the Borah amendment was not
in good faith and that it would be
dropped in the house and finally elim
inated'in conference.
All reports from the senate com
mittee on territories indicate that the
statehood bill is in trouble, and that
Senator Bevoridge will have diffl</jlty
in getting it passed. The exact cause
for the d^lay is not apparent, beyond
the dissatisfaction expressed with the
qualifications for voting in the pro
posed new states. Senator Beveridge
continues to insist that it will pass. He
expects soon to be absent from the city
for several days and the hearings will
go over until hie return.
Another effort is being made in the
Irouse to have a small omnibus public
bill in order to give some .assistance
to certain districts whose congressmen
•are in distress. The senate is opposed
.to the bill, however, and points to the
\u25a0 large rivers and harbors t>ill in sup
port of its objections to another pork
r>arrel measure at this session. The
latter bill probably will not be brought
•out of the committee on commerce be
fore March 15 or 20. *
The postoffice appropriation bill is
still before the house. All last week
•was occupied by members in making
political speeches. Consider tion of the
measure will require several days more.
The naval bill Is about ready to be
reported, hut the legislative, executive
and judicial bill will be the next in
order in the house.

United States Involved in Case
of Perjury and Pay for
Carrying Mails
- f '\u25a0.'. -*' -
WASHINGTON, March 6.— Several
states and the United States are to ap
pear this week before the federal su
preme court in defense of rights as
serted or laws enacted.
The state of Nebraska will maintain
the constitutionality of her grain ele
vator law of 1905. The Missouri Pa
cific railway company failed to rom
ply with the law requiring railroads to
construct switch connections for grain
elevators with a capacity •of 15,000
bushels, located along their right of
Once again the controversy between
Kentucky and the national bank over
the taxing of the bank' has come to
the court.
Kansas comes into the court in de
fense of her anti-drumming act. The
law forbids the drumming or soliciting
on trains, of business by physicians,
masseurs, bath houses, boarding houses,
or hotels.- It was designed to protect
invalids traveling to Hot Springs. Al
Williams, a boarding house keeper, was
arrested in 1908 on a charge of solicit
ing on a train for his boarding house
in Hot Springs. He alleges that the
law interferes with his inherent rights.
Minnesota has complained of illegal
cutting of timber on Jier school lands.
She is seeking, in a suit against the
Shevlin -Carpenter company, to recover
thousands of dollars for timber alleged
to have been cut without permission.
The United States is interested in
an unusual naturalization prosecution
and in a suit to. determine whether a
railroad leasing^ or otherwise procur
ing the right to* use tracks of another
land-aided railroad is entitled to full
pay for carrying the mails or whether
it is subject to a 20 per cent reduction.
The naturalization question arises in
the case of the United States against
Gustav Holmgren of California. He
was indicted on a charge of swearing
that he had known for five years in the
United States, Frank Werta, an appli
cant for naturalization, whereas it is
alleged he had known him only four.
The oath was made in a state court,
but Holmgren was prosecuted on the
charge of perjury in a federal court.
The question has been raised whether
the federal courts have jurisdiction in
such a case.
The question of pay. for carrying the
mails arises out of the contract of the
postoffice department with the Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha railway.
The dispute is over the service from
Lemars to Sioux City, lowa.
Five Hundred Men Digging to
Recover the Bodies of
Railway Workers _

VANCOUVER. B. C. March 6. — Thirty
bodies have been found in the great
mass of snow, Ice, rocks and trees at
Roger"s Pass, 40 miles east of "Revel
stoke, where an avalanche buried 62
workmen engaged in clearing the
Canadian Pacific tracks of debris
brought down by. an earlier glide./
Twenty-two of the bodies recovered
are those of white men, the others be
ing the bodies of Japanese section men.
The local officers of the Canadian Pa
cific adhere to their estimate of 62
dead, as they have carefully checked
the lists of employes.
Five hundred men are at work and
the railway company expects -to have
the line' open for traffic by, tomorrow
night. It is expected that most of the
bodies will have been recovered by that
DA.\GER OP.MORE SLIDES . f. \u25a0''
The danger of more slides is immi
nent. Rain and sleet have been fall
ing for two days and tonight a ter
rific snowstorm is raging. The wind
blows through the pass, with terrific
force and the workmen are greatly
hampered' in their task. «
Passengers on westbound express No;
97, which is held at Field, having been
caught, between two slides, narrowly
escaped the fate which overtook" 'the
passengers caught in the Great
Northern disaster at Wellington/Wash.,
last Tuesday. The train, carrying
more than 100 people, had barely
passed .a point a short distance; east
of the, field station, when an avalanche
swept down the mountain, , burying
1000 feet • of track under .25 feet >of
snow and debris. . .
This was the slide that bottled the
express, and until the obstruction, at
Rogers' pass is cleared away, the train
will be held' at Field. • r _ .
The "eastbound express which ,left
Vancouver this afternoon will not be
detoured via the Crow's Nest route,, .as
it is believed, that~ the main line. will be
clear by the time the train reaches

Forty •seven Tons of Letters
Due Wednesday Forwarded

. • - ' •_. ; I -, .
Chicago and Kansas City Bags
Come Over Santa Fe and
; Rock Island
The first lot of eastern mail to reach
San Francisco N in. several- days arrived
here morning at 11 o'clock"
It was one full eastern • mail, weighing
47 tons, and was due her^e at 10:08 a. m.
last Wednesday, but the delay was oc
casioned by diverting the mail through
Portland because of the washouts in
central Nevada. Two carloads more ar
rived' last night from the north on
train No. 11.
"The mail Is still being diverted by
way of Portland," said A. H. Stephens,
superintendent of the railway ; mall
service, yesterday, "and will continue
to arrive .In San Francisco at intervals
of^about 24 hours. In addition to'this,
direct letter mails for San Francisco
from Chicago and Kansas City are be
ing diverted tp the Santa Fe and to the
Southern Pacific, and Rock Island lines.
"The first of these diverted mails
should reach San Francisco Monday
morning at S o'clock. They will con
tinue to arrive here at intervals of 24
hours during the interruption of serv
ice of the Ogden and San Francisco
line. •
"Eastbound mails are being diverted
to the Santa Fe and the Southern Pa
cific lines, to go east by way of Albu
querque and El Paso.
"We are losing from 2% to 12 hours
on mail diverted to the southern lines
and nearly two days on mail diverted
to the northern route. While yester
day's mail consisted of letters as well
as papers, the remaining mails diverted
over the northern route will consist of
heavy papers, while all letter mails will
be diverted over the southern lines."
- Extra duty is being required of all
railway mail clerks to handle the con
gested mail. The entire force of clerks
in the local postoffice. was also on hand
yesterday to handle the first mail to ar
rive from the east in several days. The
railroad officials, are promising to have
the Ogden route open again in two or
three days. »
Local service is being maintained be
tween San Francisco and Battle Moun
tain, Nev./and between Ogden and Car
lin. New - Should the gap be reduced to
a short. distance the postal authorities
probably will arrange to have the mail
moved, across the gap in wagons until
the road is again lmoperatlon.
The service between: San % Francisco
and Goldfield and Tonopnh has not been
interrupted,^ by the washouts. The
branch lines from Battle Mountain to
'Austin, Nev., and from Palisades to
Eureka, Nev.A are both out of commis
sion, with no definite assurance as to
when they. will again be placed in oper

Delayed Trains Reach Ogden
-OGDEN, Utah, M:arch 6.— Trains from
San :. Francisco carrying hundreds /of
passengers, many of whom , had been
delayed 10 days on their eastward jour
ney, reached Ogden at intervals today,
the first arriving, at 4 o'clock this
morning. This was 'the overland; lim
ited,. which- left San -Francisco for the
east more than a week ago, but was
forced by washouts in Nevada to re
turn to Sacramento, from .which point
it was rerouted. to Portland and thence
to Ogden. Delayed mall and baggage
were also a part of the train's burden.
Other trains continued to reach; Og
den over the Oregon Short Line this
evening and officials in answer to re
ports that further flood "damage oc
curred Saturday gave assurance that
the line" was open for travel, but ex
plained.it heavily overburdened by
the unusual travel and lhat they could
not guarantee close schedule time.
- Although a full week c has- elapsed

disaster to the Southern Pacific trans

Mayor McCarthy Presides at
Ceremony and Addresses
-The cornerstone of Hancock cosmo
politan grammar, school, at Mason and
Filbert streets, was laid' by Mayor Mc-
Carthy yesterday afternoon. In his ad
dress he said that the dedication of the
new Hancock school-building marked
an effective stride In' the progress of
the City. He insisted that it was his
cardinal and most solemn obligation to
protect: the children in_ the public
schools, and that they .were not- to suf
fer through the activities of politicians
oWreformers; and that he proposed to
restore/ confidence and good feeling
among the teachers of the department.
During the course of his remarks,
Mayor McCarthy referred to the news
papers as the "poisoned press.*' He said
that lie understood that Will Irwin had
been i sent .to San Francisco to gather
material for a magazine article on the
newspapers of the city. "The poisoned
press,", he; continued,— '-will never stop
me, however, in my effort to help these
schools, and put them upon a proper
basis. I know I am*right and justified,
and am .going' to .^ win this fight."
"One of the speakers," continuedthe
Mayor, "has said that he sympathizes
with the striking carmen of the. east.
It is strange to me that at a time when
John D. Rockefeller is asking the fed
eral government to aid him in giving
away $250,000,000 that .another corpor
ation should be robbing deserving men
and their families of bread. These
same men will, undoubtedly, be seeking
a few years from now to help charity.
"Andrew Carnegie belongs to this
class of philanthropist, distributing his
libraries throughout the country. But
when we recall the hundreds of lives
taken in th«j Homestead strikes, men
killed and wounded, we, wonder why
people accept these gifts.. He tried to
give San Francisco ?700,000 for a li
brary. This city refused his money
and in doing so made for itself an ever
lasting place in the hearts of union
men." .
Many of the men and women present
had attended the school, among them
being Superintendent of Schools Ronco
vieri, who was one* of the speakers.
' "Many of us," he said in"his address,
"who were born*and raised In old North
beach received our first lessons here
and gained the-elements of knowledge
in the old building."
The life work of Miss Kate Kennedy,
the first principal of the school, and
who entered the school department in
1858, was reviewed by the speaker. "It
is sad," continued the speaker, "that
Miss Kennedy's closing years were'ren
dered unhappy by those who were
strangers to her character and her good
work. In 18*87. while she was absent
from the department on leave, she was
transferred > without her knowledge
from the principalship of this school
to an inferior position. On her return
she refused to accept this transfer. In
the courts of justice she fought against
the wrong that had been done her and
achieved for herself and the noble pro
fession which she honored a victory
'now known as the famous "Kate Ken
nedy decision* that has enshrined her
memory in the hearts of all teachers
tn this department."

| Remains of Cortez
A thrill has been sent through Spain
by the announcement that the remains
of .Fernando Cortez, the, conqueror of
Mexico, have been discovered. The lo
cus of the burial of Cortez has been a
subject-^for dispute, for the conqueror's
bones have lain in more than one tomb
since his death. in 1547.
Before they were placed in .the Jesuit
church in Mexico in 1794 they had re
posed in a convent. But' in 1823, at the
time, of 'the revolution, the body was
removed, and : ", ;.. only ..the pyramidal
mausoleum remained.^ -' Some asserted
that the<cofflns were taken to Italy,
others' to "' Seville, while the view ob
tained that the body had never left
Mexico. •
The coffins, although removed- from
the tomb, have been found in the
churQh, arid a Paris . contemporary, re
marks on a fact that .would doubtlessly
have interested ; Lombroso : greatly,', and
that Is the smallness of the cranium.
Ruskin's Grave
Ten years ago today John Ruskin
passed peacefully away at Coniston. . A
grave In -Westminster Abbey was im
mediately, offered by the dean, but- was
refused out of respect i for Ruskin's
frequently expressed ' wish that : he
might be. buried wherever he' chanced
to- die, says.;the Westminster Gazette.
He was laid to rest in Conston church
yard on January 25. . In : poets" corner
there is a . medallion .^of him by
Onslow. Ford, immediately^ above" the
bust' of Sir Walter Scott. ; In his native
Camberwell .the master's memory is
perpetuated ; by^: the, bestowal, of his
name "upon the v finely -wooded v park on
Denmark hill,; within: a! stone's throw
of -his. old '\u25a0 home. A .-.'sl-v
Cashier^ of^Telephone Company
Refuses to Discuss Arrest
for Embezzlement
Failure of Moving Picture Show
May Have Led to Young
Man's Downfall
The silence maintained by Bartholo
mew H. iFoley, cashier of the Pacific
telephone and telegraph company, on
his arrest Saturday on the charge of
embezzling $5,000 of the corporation's
funds, remained with him yesterday
and he. refused to discuss his plight or
the causes leading up to his arrest.
Except for h}s brother, James H. Fo
ley, an architect in San Francisco, he
was. visited by no one during* the day.
He spent his time pacing up and down
the prison cell, refusing to talk to
any one. No effort was made to get
him out: on bail.
That the investigation which was in
progress when his shortage was
covered will be continued is the" com
mon opinion. . X For, some time past
there have been rumors of shortages
and dishonest dealings; among /certain
of the^ employes of the telephone/com
pany, and it was generally known that
the managing officials were conducting
an investigation.
. . Foley's "interest in the -moving pic
ture concern in San "Mateo which re
cently closed down is believed by some
to " have been the cause of the young
man's downfall, but there is no definite j
information in support of this theory, j
Nothing further regarding this phase of
the situation is known except that he
was heavily interested in the concern
and that a few months ago it had to
close. Foley refused to say anything
about it.

Fulwood's Rents, the little Holborn
court leading into Gray's Inn Gardens,
which will be lajgely rebuilt, is so
named from the Fulwood family, one
member of which became a famous
royalist, says the Westminster Ga
zette. It formerly possessed the priv
ilege of # and hence became
resort for fradulerit debt
ors- and. still' more unpleasant char
acters.. Yet this dingy "dive" can boast
of many glorious memories. Francis
Bacon lived here. in "Fulwood's House,"
and valueJ his furniture at £60. a huge
price for that period. Here the Whig
club, "and- Melbourne and Oates* club,
met in fjie reign , v of- Charles 11., and
here. stood Squire's coffee house, from
which several numbers of the Spectator
were dated."
| Big Game in East Africa ;
,j. :—:: — : : a.
The increase of big game shooting in
East Africa threatens to bring about
the complete extermination of the
]arger mammals within about half a
century, despite the restrictions applied
to this form -of sport by the authorities,
according to the London Globe." The
most appalling, destruction is that of
the elephants; the number of tusks an
nually imported into Antwerp alone
represents the= slaughter of no fewer
than : 20,000 elephants.

patcher of the Northern Pacific railroad, was
instantly kill*Ml early this morniuK.' his head
being crushed between the buffers of pa»senser
coaches he was coupling in the depot yard here.
