"The provisions of the act relatire to the issuance of free tickets, free passes, free transportation, or free car riage to employes of carriers apply only to persons who are actually In the service of the carriers, and who devote substantially all of their time to the work or business of such carriers. Land immigration agents (unless they are bona tide and actual employes), representatives of correspondence schools, agents of accident or life in surance companies, agents of oil or lubricating companies, etc., are not within the classes to which free or re duced rate transportation can be law fully furnished. , "Hut tli commission does not con strue the law as preventing a carrier from giving necessary free transporta tion to a person traveling over its line solely for the purpose of attending to the business of, or performing a duty imposed upon, the carrier; nor from giving free carriage over its line to tho household and personal effects of an employe who is reqtiired to remove from one place to another at the in stance of, or in the interest of, the carrier by which he is employed. "Nor does the commission construe the law ns preventing a carrier from giving free or reduced-rate carriage over Its line to contractors for mate rial, supplies, and men for use in con struction, improvement, or renewal work on the line of that carrier, pro vided such arrangement for free or reduced-rate carriage are made a part of the specifications upon which the contract is based, and of the contract itself. "The provisions of the act relative to the issuance of free or reduced-rate transportation to ministers of religion do not apply to, or include, members of the families or ministers of re ligion. Neither do the provisions of the act relative to the issuance of free or reduced-rate transportation admit of including therein officers of the gov ernment, the army, or the navy, or members of their families. or other per sons to whom such considerations may hive been extended in the past, unless they are within the classes specifically named in the act." How It Once Prohibited King Carlos of Portugal from Viitinf King Humbert. Rome, Oct. The Tatria says that Cardinal Xetto. patriarch of Lisbon, is coming to Rome to negotiate with the Vatican a visit of the king of Portugal to the Quirinal. The king of Portugal once tried to visit the late King Hum bert, but be was stopped in Paris by the prohibition of the Vatican and the announcement that If he went on to Rome t,he Portuguese clericals -would! Join the Rcpublicansand overthrow his monarchy. The Vatican denies the truth of the statement published in La Fatria. Official reports received at the Vati can from Spain declare that the anti clerical movement in Spain is insignifi cant, in spite of the fact that it is supported by the present cabinet.

State's Main Witness Falls to Know an Important Fact. John O'Brien, superintendent of the Buckeye Pipe Line company, and E. R. Curtain, superintendent of the Man hattan Oil company, both took the "im munity bath" before, testifying in the case. With the exception of the last witness the evidence put in by the state was from officers of the alleged constituent companies of the Standard, Including the Buckeye Pipe line, the Manhattan Oil company, the Ohio Oil company and the Solar Refining com pany, it was testified by officers of tho Buckeye Pipe line and the Ohio Oil company that the Standard Oil Com pany of New Jersey owned practically all of the stock of these companies. The last witness, Willis B. L'lsh, a local grocer, was proceeding to tell the jury that when he first went into busi ness several years ago he purchased oil from the National Refining com pany, a local independent concern, but that two or three years ago he was vis ited by an agent of the Standard, since which time he had bought oil of that company. Tie had no means of know ing that the supposed agent of the Standard was such agent. Attorney Thelps stated that he wished to show that this agent hnd offered and paid a secret rebate to-the w itness since his visit, and that the witness had bought all his oil of the Standard since that time, but he said the state could not prove that tho Standard had given the agent authori ty to offer the rebate, and the evidence was thereby cut short.
