Discussed by President Milton H
Smith of the L N
Admits thai the Company Issues
1 Them to Judges and Politicians
Because it Helps Business
f Mr Milton II Smith President
of the Louisville and Nashville
Railroad company has a wide
spread reputation for bluntness es
pecially when he talks to those who
occupy high places Mr Smiths
testimony before the Interstate Com
merce Commission in the matter of
extension of time to comply with the
Railroad Safety appliance act of
Congress is exceedingly interest
ing and characteristic The testi
mony was so replete with imforma
lion of legal and economic character
Ihat the senate ordered it printed
as a public document and Law
Notes has a review of it in its July
3 The Commissioners had not pro
gressed very far in questioning Mr
Smith before the delicate subject
of the depletion of railroad reve
nues by free transportation was
reached Mr Smith stated that
jiis road issued passes to the Pres
ident and United States Senators
IWe transported President
ey and party to the Nashville
ennial free but we gotour money
back by charging the people who
went to see the President he said
l Mr Smith is of the opinion that
the practice of issuing free passes
is so thoroughly established that it
can not be discontinued We may
perhaps secure an increased traffic
thereby1 said he When the com
missioners desired to know ho a far
the judiciary came in for free trans
portation Mr Smith referred the
Gonimissioners to Edward Brixter
general counsel of the L N road
The President stated however
that he was sure that Mr Baxter
was of the opinion that it was not
well to appear before a judge unless
he has a pass if he wants one
If a Federal Judge wants a
pass continued Mr Smith and
asks for it we give it We do not
press them on the point They
may not ask directly for it but may
have some friend to do it How
ever only one or two hold such
passes Concerning the relations
oC the railroad and people Mr
Smith said The people and the
carriers are getting along well and
I say let it alone They will work
it out The commission asked Mr
Smith if in the absence of
tion the traveler would not be com
pelled to pay whatever the road
No said Mr Smith
What could he do was asked
He can walk he can do what he
did before he had the railway
He can hire horses and drive
interposed some one
Yes said Mr Smith
Mr Smith clearly expressed his
opinion in favor of doing away with
government regulation of railroads
and leaving the matter to the car
rier arid the people When it was
stated that all railroad officials con
ceded that the law was being vio
lated by some one but all insisted
that their roads stuck to its very
letter Mr Smith said somebody
iB lying
Law Notes in concluding its re
view says Mr Smith is either fifty
years ahead of his time or fifty
years behind it

The Irene Incident
Apologized For at Berlin
- A Berlin dispatch to the Daily News
The Irene incident in Subig Bay was probably due to differences
between the German Nay Department and the foreign office The fof
mer has been very self confident since the seizure of Kia Chou Bay
Possibly the Philippine squadron was instructed to display military
dash and moved without diplomatic action Nothing at present
would be more disagreeable to the cabinet than friction with the United
States The dispatch adds that a letter from a German resident at
Manila says the Americans arc anxious above all to prove themselves
gentlemen and thus heap coals of lire on the head of the Spanish Gover
nor who in a proclamation described them as the scum of mankind
capable of any cruelty
