ANNUAL REPORT NOW OUT A LAW SHOULD BE PASSED OIV INQ COMMISSION AUTHORITY TO PERMIT REFUNDS AND ALSO REPARATIONS. (Palladium Special) Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 0. The In diana Railroad Commission makea re commendation in its annual report, Just published, for chances in eleven sections of the laws pertaining to rail roads And the authority of the com mission in railroad affairs. The need of increased power for the commis sion and of requiring the railroads to provide more adequate means for pro tecting the lives of their employes and persons required to cross the railroad right of way are emphasised in the recommendations. The need of keep ing trespassers off the right of way Is again emphasised. The following are the recommenda tions as made: "The railroad commission act should be so amended that In proper cases the railroad commission may intervene in proceedings for the location, change, or extension of a public highway over the right of way of a railway, outside of the corporate limits of cities and towna, when, in its Judgment such lo cation, change or extension would not be advisable from the standpoint of public safety. A Uniform Method. MA law should be passed providing a uniform method for presenting to the railroads, shipper or consignees claims against the latter; prescribing the kind of proofs of claims which should be submitted to the carrier and Imposing upon the latter the duty of absolutely accepting or supplementing this proof so far as It Is able. The law should alio Include a penal pro vision Intended to secure prompt set tlement of consignees' claims against carriers where the statutory method of proving the same has been followed. "A law should be passed giving the commission authority to permit re funds or reparations In case where a shipper has acquired of an authorised representative of the carrier and a sate has been quoted to him by the latter which ts lower than the lawfully pub lished rate; whereby the shipper has misled to his damage. The safety appliance law should bs so amended as to provide an ade quate punishment for wrongful de struction or Interference with the ope ration of aafety appliances used to protect highway crossings. A statute should be passed to pre vent trespassing upon railway tracks, and punishing all persons who use such tracks a a footway. We have heretofore prepared a good bill on this subject. "The safety appliance law should further be so amended as to require adequate and properly working hand brakes to be placed upon all cars, both freight and passenger. Including Inter urban cars, and as to the latter that the hand brakes should operate In dependently of the air of power brakes. Amend Safety Act. "The aafety appliance act should also bs so amended aa to give the commis sion authority to require the removal of lateral and overhead obstructions near railroad tracka In cities and towns. "A law should bs enacted providing for the elimination of grade crossings throughout the state by requiring the steam and electric railroads to sepa rate a specified number of grades each year for each one hundred miles of railroad or fraction thereof owned or operated by them. The expense of separation should.be divided between the railroads and the counties, cities and towns, wherein the crossings are located according to some fair basis to be determined by the railroad com mission. "The cities and towns code should bs so smended as to permit sn sppeal to the railroad commission from town boards and city councils respecting Hungry Utile Folks find delightful satisfaction In a bowl of toothsome fftosl , , with Cream and Sugar. When the children want lunch this wholesome nourishing food Is always ready to serve right from the package without cook ing, and saves many steps for mother.

"Sections 57805788 (Burns Statu tes, 1008) concerning wires over rail roads should be amended so as to en able the railroad commission to make general rules or orders in specific cas es governing the manner In which tele graph, telephone and other wires shall be constructed and maintained over or under tracks of railways in order to prevent injury to trainmen and oth ers coming in contact with such wires. "The railroad commission act in sec tion 7, subdivision C, should be amend ed so ss to remove the two years limi tation from the life of commission's orders, and provide instead that an order from the commission shall re main in force for such time as .shall be provided in the order itself unless sooner modified or set aside by the commission or a court of competent Jurisdiction."

The Maxwell-Hall . company, headed by Miss Gertrude Maitland had all available space taken last night at the Gennett to see the "Jealous Wife." the play was in four acts, the scenes at Atlantio City and the staging was equal to any one of the high class pro ductions, the leading role being tak en by Miss Maitland, who lived up to her, past reputation as being the most beautiful woman as well as one of the best on the stage.

Tonight closes the presentation of this play and on tomorrow at matinee and night will be given "The Triumph of Betty, which from the demand for seats shows that it "will rival the play "St. Elmo" In attendance.

Aug. 9 The announce ment the other day that the country owes to King Cotton its balance of trade, gave quite a Jar to the wheat barons of the Street, who have been disposed to appropriate to themselves all of the credit for Uncle'Sam's com mercial predominance. But for it. the United States would be a debtor instead of a creditor to the tune of some $7,000,000,000 in the last 120 years, according to the statistics re cently compiled by the Southern.' Com mercial Congress. For this period the total exports aggregated $47,991. 224,405. Cotton's contribution to this was $13,598,353,086. The total balance of trade in favor of the United States for the same period amounts to $6, 436,114,566. showing that cotton saved Uncle Samuel's skin. With the de velopment in the next century of flax, which Is now made available for the manufacture of American made linen through the wonderful process of: Ben jamin Cushing Mudge, by which it is turned, in 24 hours into fabric for -commercial use, the balance of trade should be greatly augmented. Until the discovery of Mudge's process, which is to the linen industry what Eli Whitney's gin was tc cotton, flat was not not regarded as as American industry. If it develops In anything like the proportion that cotton did following the invention of Whitney's cotton gin. statisticians say linen should become as commanding an in dustry as cotton.

"I was born that way and I must steal or I'm not happy." - Prominent criminologists and . phy sicians have been Invited to examine the youngster to determine what ab normalities they can find that predis pose him to a life of crime. In many respects the case is one of the most pathetic and interesting that has been under the observation of the authorit ies in a long time.
