ing an adequate Idea of the vast ex
tent of Oreat Britain's sea power.
Anchored In six main columns, with
mailer craft In flanking lines, every

Eight Square Miles.
The fleet occupied eight square
tallies of anchorage between the Isle
of Wight and the mainland and be

In line. Next to the Delaware and
the Von der Tann, the Danton from
"France; the Radetzki from Austria,

Discovery of Club of Fair
Smokers Has Shocked
East End of City.
Like a thunderbolt out of a clear
Bky came the disclosure recently that
there is a regularly organized club of
clgaret smokers in Richmond compos
ed of well known young girls between
the ages of 14 and IS years. Conster
nation and stir produced in the East
End by the disclosure is without pre
cedent. The discovery of the fair clgaret
smokers club, it is understood came
through the mothers of some of the
girls. Many of the parents of the
"club" membero, however, are said
to be in ignorance of the facts. Moth
ers who do know are highly shocked
and grieved and fond fathers appear
For some time past how long It Is
not known the young girls are said
to have met in various places to in
dulge In the small vice of smoking the
"pills." The one pleasure of inhaling
the nicotine has been the sole object
for the existence of the club and for
the meetings of the girls.
The point which has given the par
ents the greatest worry and caused the
greatest stir in society circles. Is
whether the girls have smoked the
cignrets to an extent that they have
become addicted to their use.

TWO LITTLE TOTS
Disappear from Home, but
Finally Located A Mys
tery Is Involved.
Manifesting neither fatigue nor wor
ry, but much anxiety as to whether
they could get something to eat, lit
tle three year old Dorothy Dayton and
year and a half old Grace McKinley,
stopped at the pest house on Friday
evening about 7 o'clock after a three
mile journey from their homes on
North I street. Mrs. William Shinn, to
wbom the requests for food were made
took them In. washed and fed them
and then called up the police where
already anxious inquiries had been
made by the parents. When the. pa
rents arrived both the children were
sleeping soundly, apparently just as
content as though in their own homes.
Just how the children could have
made the trip by themselves is a mys
tery to their parents and police. They
believe the children must have been
carried a part of the way at least and
are inclined to believe that strangers
took them" dropping . thenxneax - the
detention hospital ' because -of fear of
being arrested for kidnappers. So far
the children have been unable to ex
plain satisfactorily to their parents
how they made the trip and this fact
gives rise to the theory that the trip
was" not their own undertaking alone.
The Dayton child is the daughter
of Henry Dayton, for whom the po
lice and his family have searched in
vain for nine months. They have been
inclined to believe he was murdered
and bis body buried somewhere near
the city, but their search of possible
places where he might have been
buried has been fruitless. There is
no known reason why he should have
left his home.

ARE SELLING WOOL
County Farmers See a Drop
in the Price.
The action of the house of repre
sentatives in passing a bill lowering
the wool tariff already has h.ad Its ef
fect in Wayne county; where the farm
ers, instead of holding the wool crop
for better prices, have disposed of
their entire crop. Farmers figured
that in case the senate passed the
house bill the market for the raw ma
terial in the United States would take
quite a decided slump and rather than
take chances sold their wool at once.
At the warehouse of Clendenin &
Company on Ft. Wayne avenue, there
are 160,000 pounds of wool baled,
ready for shipment. It will require
sixteen box cars to transport .the wool
to the factories.

Chicago, June 24. With the demand
of the finance committee of the city
council for the "key" to the report of
the vice commission which has been
investigating the resorts in Chicago
the fact that it would cause a jolt
which would be felt from one end of
the country to the other because of
the wealthy men mixed up in Chica
go's tenderloin was revealed today.
"If the 'key is produced," declared
Chief Justice Olson of the municipal
courts, who is chairman of the com
mission, "the matter will be subject to
a special grand jury action.
"There may be an idea that the re
port would only expose Chicagoans of
means who pose as members of good
society on incomes derived from the
rental of houses for immoral purposes,
but others other Jekyls and Hydes,
in other cases will be . exposed. It
contains - evidence of 200 . policemen
and other officials." r
Other members of the commission
declared that the report contained
dynamite, but that if it really were
wanted for prosecutions it would be
produced quickly enough.

Calls Combination of Un

Pacific Legal One.
RULING ENTERED IS
NOT UNANIMOUS ONE
Judge Hook Dissented from
Majority Opinion Read by
Judge Adams Govern
ment Was the Plaintiff.
(National News Association)
. St Paul, June 24. Edward H. Har
riman's gigantic merger of the Union
Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads
was not a combination in restrain of
trade, according to a decision announc
ed by the United States circuit court
of appeals today.
The majority opinion was read by
Judge Adams while Judge Hook dis
sented. "The proof shows that after
1901 as well as before, the rates for
.transcontinental traffic were the same
over both lines," says the opinion.
"There has since then been, with re
spect to both these lines, no impair
ment of service, no deterioration of
physical properties no discontinuance
of efforts to satisfy the public and no
complaints of shippers of inferior or
No Complaints Made.
The decision goes on to say, "The
large number of initial carriers, striv
ing for that traffic, have continued an
active solicitation for the business
over the line which assured them of
the longest haul or otherwise benefit
ed them most, and although some
agents of the two roads which, before
1901 were separate, are now joined,
they have continued to exercise their
Influence to secure business for either
road, according to its availability and
always in opposition to their other act
ive : competitors - like the Santa ; Fe
and the Denver, and ', Rio Grande
roads. ' '' '
"A substantial majority of the stock
of the Southern Pacific has been deliv
ered by parties, other than the Union
Pacific company, but we fail to find
any complaint by such holders of any
discrimination against their road or of
any failure to properly promote its
welfare. None of the minor points
charged of having been deprived of
competitive opportunities by the Hun
tington purchase are shown to have
suffered from the result of that pur
chase. "On the contrary hundreds of mil
lions of dollars have, since 1901, been
expended on those roads. Their phy
sical condition has been vastly im
proved and their efficiency for public
service, as well as for private profit,
has been greatly enhanced. The whole
proof taken together, we think, fails to
disclose any conspiracy to restrain
either interstate or foreign commerce
in violation of the first section of the
No Evidence of Combination.
"The same considerations lead to
the conclusion that no combination or
conspiracy to monopolize or attempt
to monopolize trade or commerce
among states or with foreign nations
was entered into. Moreover, the fact
that the Union Pacific company did
not secure control of the Santa Fe
road, a thoroughly sufficient, well
equipped and powerful rival for trans
continental business or the Denver
and Rio Grande road, a potential and
later an actual and powerful rival for
the same business, affords the addi
tional and conclusive evidence of no
such combination or conspiracy.
"The purchase by the Union Pacific
company soon after acquiring the
Huntington stock or the majority of
the capital stock of the Northern Pa
cific company tends to the opposite
conclusion but in view of the main
reason for its acquisition and of other
facts just referred to as well as to the
total cessation o any relations be
tween that road and the Union Pa
cific we are indisposed to give to that
purchase alone, any considerable sig
nificance. "The conclusion of facts already
stated, dispose of this case without
necessity of determining the question
much debated in the brief and argu
ment, whether or not the securing of
the control of the Southern Pacific
company by purchasing th stock of
the individual owners could in any
view of the case have contravened the
anti-trust law. On the facts of this
case, with all their reasonable and fair
inferences, we conclude the govern
ment has failed to substantiate the
averments of its bill."
Two Other Decisions.
Simultaneously decisions, favoring
the railroads were handed down in
the Salt Lake and St. Louis courts.
The case therefore is dismissed. One
particular point of Judge Hook's dis
senting opinion "was based on the be
lief that the Union Pacific and South
ern Pacific railroads were more active
competitors prior to the merger In
1901, than afterwards, and that two
lines in a broad geographical and legal

AN INSPECTION OF -LINE
P. R. R. Hopes to Reduce the
Length of the Division Be

nati Very Soon.
With the C. & O. of Indiana railroad,
a subsldary line of the Chesapeake
and Ohio svsteni: activity fnraerf 1b
its plans for double - tracking and .
straightening its line between Cincin
nati and Chicago, officials of the Rich
mond division of the Pennsylvania)
railroad are considering similar plans
for tliat line, emphasizing the fact that
the Pennsylvania road is beginning to
consider the younger line in the light
of an important competitor.
Pennsylvania officials are inspect
ing the line and are having estimates
made as to the probable cost of double
tracking between Cincinnati and Lo
gan sport and it is considered more
than likely the stbckholders in the
near future will vote an appropriation
of several million dollars with which
to carry out these plans.' At the same
time the road is double tracked, the
fed bad grades will be eliminated by
the making of fills and cuts.
The C. & O. of Indiana is making
excellent progress in double tracking
and reducing the grades and curves,
although no more than the merest de
tails have been started in this county.
It is probable it will be two years or
so before the work is completed, but
whe nit is, it will be quite a different
line from wbat it now is.
Inasmuch as the younger system
has the shortest route into Chicago
from Cincinnati "and also has the ad-

with the C. & O. system proper, it has
the "jump" on the Pennsylvania lines

greater portion of the business.
