HE ALSO HOLDS THAT THE IN . DICTMENT CHARGING J. OGDEN ARMOUR AND OTHER PACKERS WITH VIOLATING ITS PROVIS IONS IS VALJD DECISION WILL HAVE AN INDIRECT BEAMING ON ALL TRUST LITIGATION. By Associated Press. Chicago, May 12. The demurrers of the Chicago packers in the "beef trust" case were overruled today by Judge Carpenter In the United States district court. ' In his rulings, Judge Carpenter de clared that the Sherman anti-trust law, which had been attacked by the packers, ts constitutional. He also held that - the Indictment charging J. Ogden Armour and other packers with violating its provisions is valid. Judge Carpenter's decision may have an indirect bearing on all anti-trust litigation In the United States in up holding the completeness and stability of the Sherman act. Of tnls feature, the court said: 'Congress aimed effectually to pre vent restraint of trade in interstate commerce; it had constitutional power to accomplish this purpose by making restraints of trade criminal acts, or by empowering the United States com plainant to secure injunctions against acts which constitute restraints of trade or by both. Passing the Sher man act, it did both." The Backers had based their demur rers on nart on an assertion that the act did not provide a crime or provide. legal and constitutional means of cor recting abuses it was designed to con trol. The directors recently denied this assumption. They also . claimed that the act did not define the misdo- inir in terms that they would enable the defendant to know In advance that such performance as it condemned were lljegaL - Of tMV the; decision T am of the opinion tnat tn su preme court of the United States has determined that sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Sherman act define with sufficient accuracy the offenses thereon enumer ated."

DECLARES THAT MERE BOY HAD AN ALLEGED INTERVIEW WITH HIM IN WHICH HE WAS MIS QUOTED AND PLACED IN THE ATTITUDE OF ANTAGONIZING THE GEORGIA CONVICT LEASE SYSTEM. v By J. H. Reese. Tallahassee, May 12. Resenting the presumption of a Georgia newspaper to reform the convict lease system of is on record as favoring a reform of the lease system, and is on record and has been for six years to that . end, Commissioner of Agriculture B. F. Mc Lin stated tonight, that he had been misquoted by a representative of the paper in question, placed in a false light and he doubted not that the cause of reform has been injured by this interference for the sake of cheap notoriety and advertising purposes. "By an alleged interview with a boy which I was not apprised was an in terview, I am placed in the attitude of antagonizing the Georgia system and saying things that I did not say," were the words of Commissioner McLiru "My position is that, we should put the convicts on the ; roads unless we are assured that the system of caring for the convicts Is better than the system we have in force. I am assured from the information of all that under the Georgia system the convicts In that state do not fare nearly so well as the convicts in Florida, and I s?y that, while I am In favor of an abolition of the lease system, that I do noc f ' - i system that will work a greater hard ship to the convicts from a humani tarian standpoint than the present sys tem does. Every southern state ex cept Georgia and Florida has put its convicts on farms and for .six years I have consistently . advocated this change, ' " PURCHASE LAND. -. "At last we have purchased land for a.farm,awi3-thB committrcro investi gate has recommended the purchase of more land. This shows the trend of sentiment in this state and every newspaper, of prominence in the state has , advocated the abolition of the lease system. We are working out our own- salvation. in-this, respect and we are In no need of belnff shown how to do , it by outsiders who are not in formed as to what has been done and what is being xione toward a better ment of conditions. Under the very conditions it is not . possible to make the change suddenly' without great in convenience and consequent hardship upon .the convicts themselves. Aside from this consideration which I con sider the chief one, it would cost the people of the state five hundred dollars per capita for the convicts, of whom there are from twelve to thirteen hun dred, to abolish the .lease system at one stroke. The lease of the, convicts now . produces about three hundred thousand dollars net. To do away with this Income which is returned to the counties upon an assesed valuation basis there would be added the cost of at least two hundred dollars for each one to care, for and guard. The sys tem we have In force is a better sys tem In my opinion than the Georgia system as it is now conducted and I know something about it from direct Information on file in my office, but I did not say, as I was quoted, that the Georgia system was a shame to the south. I have been misrepresented and misquoted by the Georgia papers." SUGAR DUTY OPPRESSIVE BUT WILL BE CONTINUED By Aoeltea Wret. . London, May 12. Representatives of those who are urging upon the govern ment the remission of the sugar tax had an Interview with David Lloyd Oeorge today and asked him to abolish thi nrovtsfnn for revenue from - the J 'orthcoming budget. The chancellor was sympathetic saying that he igreed that the sugar duty was , op pressive to the poor and interfered with a valuable Industry. It was most desirable that it should be remitted if he could extract the same amount of taxes from somebody else.

By J. H. Reesei ' Tallahassee, Fla., May 12. No one day sensation, nor matter of ephemeral moment, will the discharge of House Messenger Edwards in connection with the so-called -. bribery investigation, prove, if indications of today may be trusted. ' ' , . Much sympathy has been aroused for the aged house messenger and it is rumored that some of the' members who were opposed to the action as re corded by a majority have threateend to block legislation on important lines If they can do so because of their in tense feeling in the premises. A circumstance in , connection with the affair, and one worthy of record ing, was the partisanship displayed by the pages when the , vote was taken. The small boys in the house .were de voted to the old fellow, and they watched the proceedings keenly. ,When the vote was announced one of these youthful attaches exclaimed, "They ought to be ashamed!" and this opinion was shared by the others who plainly exhibited their disapproval of the ac tion taken by their elders. It was noised about the corridors to day that some effort would be made to revive the Question .In some form. A resolution to pay the house messenger for the remainder of the , session was talked of, and there were other things suggested that would brlnr the-question before the house again, but the conservatives discouraged this, though there was the feeling evident that it would break out again, before the close of the session. When the vote to dis charge was taken a number of mem bers sent up explanation. SOME REASONS WHY. Hendry of Lee, said: I vote no be cause I wish to give the messenger the benefit of every reasonable doubt. Watson of Dade: As the evidence 1? purely circumstantial, and Mr. Ed wards said upon the floor of the house and under oath that he knew nothinp about the matter that he has not told, and know him to have been a brave soldier and to be a good citizen and enjoy an honorable reputation at home, I give him the benefit of the do ii-t and vote no on the motion to dis charge. McClellan of Jefferson: I vote no for the reason that the evidence is wholly circumstantial. McKenzie of Putnam: There being --o evidence showing the guilt of Mes senger Edwards, therefore I vote no. Tldwell of Jackson: 1 vote no be cause I do not believe him guilty and believe him to be the victim of a cruel injustice. Terrell of Sumter: I vote no on sus pending Mr. Edwards because the evi dence against him Is not conclusive. He Is old. his faculties not keen. I think It possible he could have been the victim of an unfortunate affair. Ward of Walton: I vote no In case of motion to discharge J. W. Edwards from the fact of his age and possible Inactive mind, past Integrity, reputa tion In home county as vouched for by -Aorle who 'know him, and further that the evidence was purely clrcum .kantiai. . Epperson of Levy: I am at all times opposed to the use of money to influence legislation. At the same time there is some doubt In my mind as to old man Edwards's being guilty. As , the proof Is entirely circumstantial. It DR. GORRIE AT APALACHICOLA Is possible in the excitement he acted unwisely. , .4 THE'AGED ANTAGONISTS.

Federation of Methodist Churches Goes Back to General Conference By Associated Press. Chattanooga, Tenn, May 12. The question of federation of Methodist churches being considered here by the joint commissioners of the three lead ing churches, will, according to de velopments at today's session, go back to the general conference for more explicit instructions. The first ob stacle encountered last night, as stated, was the election and jurisdic tion x)f the episcopacy, but the ele ment contending for a union wide jurisdiction waived this contention this morning and the commission, without final action on this, took up other items, but were unable to agree. Bishop E. E. Hoss, of the M. E. Church, South, then offered a resolu House Passes Bill For Mon ument to Dr. Gorrie in Statuary Hall. EDITORIAL OF PENSACOLA JOUR NAL ON THE SUBJECT READ IN THE HOUSE BY REPRESENTA TIVE WEST, AND REPRESENTA TIVE DOUGHERTY SPOKE IN BEHALF OF THE BILL TO AP PROPRIATE $10,000. By J. H. Reese. Tallahassee, May 12. The house to day passed the bill for ten thousand dollars for a monument In statuary hall to Dr. John Gorrie, the Inventor of artificial refrigeration. The editorial of The Pensacola Journal on the sub ject was read by Representative West and Representative Dougherty spoke in behalf of the bill. Referring to the choice made by Georgia in selecting Dr. Crawford W. Long, the discoverer of anesthesia, for a plaoe In the na tional hall of fame, he said that the world had never produced two men who had done more for suffering hu manity than Dr. Long of Georgia, and Dr. Gorrie of Florida. The vote was 37 to 19. LIFE OF DR. JOHN GORRIE, INVENTOR OF REFRIGERATION The following regarding the life of Dr. John Gorrie Is taken from Uncle Remus's Magazine: Pack mules in old Rome and camel caravans In the Far East In early days bore compressed snow long distances from the mountain tops to cool the wine at banquets of the millionaires of the time. Some hundreds of years later scientists labored in their labora tories to devise chemical means for producing Ice to cool wines In summer. There was no other evident need for artificial cooling, and even when lce mp.klng had become fairly well recog nized In the United States Ice was practically a by-product of the brew ery. Man's eternal thirst might have been the underlying cause of the In vention of ice-making and refrigera tion by mechanical means had not Dr. John Gorrie, of Charleston, S. C, and Apalachlcola, Fla, been actuated by a higher and nobler purpose. At the World's Congress of the Re frigeration Industries held in Paris from October 5th to 10th, the special ists In refrigeration from all over the world discussed the growth of tho science of refrigeration, Its marvelous influence on the transportation of per ishable food products and wonderful contribution to the comfort of man kind. This was the first international gathering of the men who have created the mechanical refrigerating industry, the first recognition of Its place among the world's great activities. All the leading governments sent distinguished official delegations and . the scientific ! bodies were well represented. At the Paris congress the name of Edmond Carre was spoken with due reverence as the inventor of the first Ice-making machine that was a com mercial success. M. Carre should be honored as a pioneer, but to Dr. Gorrie, South Carolinian by birth and Florid -lan by adoption, the glory really be longs. M. Carre sought to produce the carafes frappes, water bottles with chunks of Ice frozen inside, that are lnseperable adjuncts -to the. tables of Parisian cafes, providing a cool chaser for wine. Dr. Gorrie sought to cool the rooms of a hospital where fever patients were confined to grilling beds with the mercury near the century mark and no ice nearer than England. M. Carre has been getting the glory because France decorates and pensions her savants to make their fame and existence sure. Dr. Gorrie made Ice as early as 1845 while M. Carre was not successful until ten years later. It was never Dr. Gorrle's purpose to perfect a process fo making Ice, but all his energies were bent on air-cool -Ing, primarily for hospitals where fever cases were being treated. At that time Apalachlcola was the most Important Florida seaport, being the outlet for all the cotton grown In the Chattahoochee Valley In Georgia and Alabama. The greatest drawback to the growth of the town was the prev alence of fever In summer. In his large practice Dr. Gorrie found It al most Impossible to treat successfully violent cases of fever In the i hot months. He first evolved the theory of controlling fever by cooling ths pa tient by external neans and It l.i fully set forth in the newspaper and scien tific print of the day. He was almost fifty years in advance of his profession along this line, but today the medical world recognizes the value of hi teachings without always recognizing whence they originally came. While pursuing his experiments In air-cooling, Dr. GorHe produced small blocks of ice, about the size of the ordinary building briclO His process was the precursor of the compressed air lce-maklng machine, almost uni versally used now on shipboard.

In view of this, it was decided that the whole matter be referred back to the respective general conferences for more explicit instructions on the pow ers and duties, of the commission. This resolution was adopted and the committee appointed. The committee will meet this afternoon and prepare the address to be submitted to a gen eral meeting to be held later. r
