"I .express no opinion with regard to the soundness of the decision of the [Circuit Court of Appeals rendered a ay or two ago in Chicago," said Sen ior Cummings. "The advocates of effective regulation of railway rates ve feared this result from the begin ing. It Is only another Instance of folly *f using indefinite and uncertain lan guage In order to placate and please jthooe who were opposed to giving the ntarstate Commerce Commission any ddltlonal authority, and it is enough say that assuming Judge Gross lup's construction to be correct, it robs he Roosevelt campaign for better reg ulation of railroad rates of its substan tial victory and makes another fight tbcolutely necessary.

"I have prepared and Intend to In troduce at the next session of Con gress a bill In which I shall attempt to clothe the Interstate Commerce Com mission with the authority it ought to nave. "The bill provides that on or before October 1, 1910. all Interstate common carriers shall file with the committee complete tariffs showing their inter state rates in such form that they will be understandable.

Omaha, Neb., Aug. 26.—"Don't, mother, don't say anything! You have said too much already! You will disgrace the whole family!" said Lisle Crabtree, former corporal of troop B, Second United States cavalry yester day afternoon when his mother took the stand to testify In Bupport of the insanity plea by which the defense hopes to prevent his execution for the killing of Capt. John .Raymond, his company commander. The outcome of the trial must be one of three decisions, the death pen alty, life imprisonment as a criminal or incarceration as a lunatic in a gov ernment penitentiary. Should the death penalty he given it would be shooting, hanging or any other method not unnecessarily cruel in the discretion of the court. In that case the finding would have to be ap proved by the president. In either of the other cases the approval of the department commander, Gen. Charles Morton, alone would be necessary.

RESIDED HERE FOR OVERHALFCENTURY NO DEATH IN OTTUMWA FOR YEARS WILL CAUSE SUCH WIDESPREAD SORROW AS THE PASSING OF THIS KINDLY SOUL Surrounded when death came by those of her children who wej-e able to be with her and whose devotion to their aged parent has been most striking, given all the attention and aid that, medical science could giv.?, and fully prepared to meet her eter nal reward for a life that was full of good works and of sunshine, Mrs. Sarah (Jullen breathed her last this morning at 6:45 o'clock and a kindly soul winged its flight to the bosom of its maker. Thus dosed a life that was lived for the happiness of others and earned for Its earthly monument the well deserved memorv of a good and devoted mother, kind and faith-, ful friend. Universally Loved. The death of Mrs. Cullen removes not only an aged and verv highly es teemed woman, but also one who was pioneer in Ottumwa. whose resi dence here covered more than half a century and who during that time had nei er known an enemy. Her espe cially sunny disposition "and klndiv nature made her a friend of all who came within the influence of her lov able and motherly character. Manv of those in the neighborhood and else where who are no longer little lads and lasses, but, whose younger days were spent in the vicinity of the Cul len home. 332 North Marion street, instinctively felt her as a grandmother to tliem and loved her as a near and dear relative. An evidence of this is seen in the sadness with which they have received the news of this good woman's death. Here Over Half Century. Mrs. Sarah Cullen was born in the county of Galway, in Ireland, some 84 years ago, and came to America when a girl of eighteen vears with an aunt, landing in and settling for a time iq Boston. It was in the metrop olis of the New England States that she was married to the late .Tames Cullen in 1851. Shortly after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Cullen came west, to Ottumwa and for more than half a century have made this city the home of the, family. Mr. Cullen preceded his wife in death twenty-one years ago. A Noble Woman. Since the death of her husband, this brave and cheerful Christian woman continued to live.in the city and her sorrows which the death of husband, a daughter and two sons brought her, were never allowed lo stand in the .. way of consolation and assistance to others in affliction. Sor rows that would weaken one less strong in Christian fortitude, seemed to have hi.it sweetened her disposition and none saw her when she was un able to smile and v-ffer cheer to oth ers depressed in spirit. Her unusual ly thoughtful nature so. endeared her to others that although well ad vanced In years and unable to be about but little for a long time past, she will be and is missed by many who were wont to call on her for the pleasure her presence shed upon others. Injured by a fall over a year ago. Mrs. Cullfen began to show the ad vance of age on one -whose face ever looked young. Recovering from this she at times began to feel the effects of her advanced years, but her in domitable courage would not permit her to give up for any length of time. Something more than a month ag J, however, the heart that ever beat for others began to fail in its energetic work and gradually the end drew nearer Medical skill was not spar ing in its endeavor to arrest the en croachment of her maladv and after all that was possible to do had been done, her soul passed to the care of its maker at the residence at 6:45 o'clock this morning. Surviving the death of their mother are three (daughters and two sons, Mrs. Agnes Quinlan of Cleveland, O.. Mrs. Sadie C. Barton of S. C. Cullen & Co. Miss Nellie Cullen, James .1. Cullen and Frank Cullen. The funeral will be held Saturdav from the Cullen residence, 332 North Marion street to St. Mary's Catholic church of which the decedent was a member during her lifetime in the city.

Signal Corps Officers Watch Wellman's Effort Washington Bureau of The Ottumwa Courier, Washington, D. C., Aug. 26. Signal corps officers who have been reading all of the dispatches relating to Walter Wellman's failure'to get fairly started on his journey toward the north pole are making the predic tion that if the pole is discovered by means of a dirigible it will be be cause of rare good luck. The prevalence of high winds at Spitzbergen, and from that point northward, is looked upon by the avi ators of the war department as an ob stacle difficult to overcome with a dir igible balloon. These officers have done considerable experimenting with the dirigible which was purchased from Captain Thomas Baldwin last summer. They have flown here in calm weather an on days when half a gale was blowing. Their experience in rough weather has taught them that the dirigible will be useful only so long as the atmospheric conditions re main favorable. These army officers do not believe that Count Zeppelin, with all of his experience, would stand any better chance of reaching the pole than Wellman. Lieutenant Benjamin P. Fulois of the signal corps, who has had experi ence in free balloons, dirigibles and aeroplanes, today expressed the opin ion that the high winds in the vicin ity of the north pole make it practi cally impossible for a dirigible to maintain its headway there. He be lieved that an aeroplane would stand a much better chance of reaching the long sought for goal. "It has been my experience," said Lieutenant Fulois, "that a dirigible becomes less efficient as the wind increases. I have no intimate knowl edge of the atmospheric conditions prevailing at Spitzbergen, but from what I have read I gather that there is always a high wind and that, therefore, the conditions are seldom or never favorable for a dash for the pole in a dirigible. It is my theory that if the resistance of the wind could be overcome the problem would he solved, for I do not agree that there would be motor trouble or con densation of the gas any more than would he expected elsewhere, provid ed, of course, that the proper precau tions regarding temperature were taken when the bag was filled."
