Marshal Yesterday.
HARKISBI'KG. Pa.. July 10.—The
* tate Railroad Commission to-day re
ceived a report from it* marshal.
John P. Oohoney. who Investigated
thv wreck of July 5 on the Llgonier
Valley Railroad, in which 27 persons
were killed. Mr Pohoney reports
that the wreck "was the result of the
reckless and inexcusable methods em
ployed In the operation of the line,"
, particularly in the manner of running
l a passenger car loaded with excur
I siopists ahead of a locomotive.
Marshal liohoney says there wore
. ample facilities for shirting the pas
i senger car behind tho locomotive,
l which, if it had been done, would
I have caused the engine and not th‘*
j car to receive the shock of the cot
i listen. He also criticised the manner
of giving orders to engineers. In this
j case h« finds that the order to the on
] glneer to hold his train until the
! Height inilli hail —^ sed was not a
I written order, but merely a verbs!
| M essage, which the engineer either
did not understand or forgot.

WILSON UNFAIR TO
ORGANIZED LABOR
REPRESENTATIVE HILL
MAKES A WARM ADDRESS
longmsiTun Reilly Takes* Issue
and the Two Men Nearly Come
to Blown.
WASHINGTON. July 10.—A fierce
political debate which came perilous
ly cloae to fisticuffs created a furror
In the house to-day. The partici
pants were representatives Hill and
Reilly, "of ConhecUcut. the former a
Republican and the latter a Democrat.
The trouble began when Mr. Hill,
without warning, launched Into &
political speech criticizing the labor
vtewa of Governor Woodrow Wilson.
He said Mr. Wilson. In addressing the
Princeton university graduating class
in 1!*0*. assailed labor organizations
on the ground that they made for1
“unprofitable servants” by hamper-'
Ing the individuality of their mem
bers Mr. Hill declared that the re
election of President Taft was as
sured.
“Mr. chairman.” shouted Mr.i
Reilly, “the gentleman ts much more
confident of the election of William
Howard Taft than he whs at a re-'
cent meeting of Connecticut post
masters.”
Mr. Reilly held aloft a letter which
he said he had "providentially” re
ceived tt*s morning. His informant,
who had heard Hill address the Con
nre-^cut postmasters, quoted Mr. HOP
as saying there weild be many
familiar faceB missing from around
work In the nezt election than they
<1I<1 In the last," and admonishing bin
hearers to “take off their coats and
work openly for the continuation of
the administration.*’
Angrily advancing down the aisle,
Mr. Reilly declared that Mr. Hill
had personally attacked him In that
speech He r.'ioted from Mr. Hill's
alleged remarks:
“Flehold the man you have sent to
Washington to represent tnrs district.
Do you know what he is doing? He
is voting with the southern Demo
crats to destroy the manufacturers of
Connecticut.”
Mr. Reilly vehemehtly denied that
his vote was cast for tariff measures
that would jeopardize the manufac
turing Interests of the country.
“I am sick and tired of hearing tho
gentleman from Connecticut.” ho
cried, "the know-all of tariff legisla
tion, compared with whom the dis
tinguished gentleman from New York,
Mr. i*ayne Is a mere piker. No ono
knows anything but this man from
Connecticut. I say I am sick and
tired af hearing him under the gulso
of protecting the American working
men getting sip here and feeding them
with speeches on the tariff.”
Mr Reilly referred to Mr. HIH’»
speeches on the tariff as "buncombe *
Through his arraignment Mr. fill!
vainly sought to interrupt. When ho
got the floor he was trending with
anger. Standing In front of tho
speaker's desk. Mr Hill shook a
menacing fief in his colleague's di
rection and charged him with having
unfairly and knowingly assailed him
in a speech last winter.
The two Connecticut members,
