"He's ' ulned my home, he's ruined my heme," Cudahy repeated to the
officer as tiic latter placed him under arrest.
Cudahy could not bo found todn.
Extreme reticence was a marked characteristic of everyone connected with
the case today. The exact nature of Mr. LlHis's wounds could not be learned,
s neither his physician, nurses, nor the hospital physicians would discuss this
phase of the case. It was stated that Mr. Lillis would not proseeute Mr. Cudahy.
Counsel for Mr. Cudahy stated that the latter would make no statement for

but not a statement.

BILL
Majority of Committee Re
ports Favorably the Ad
ministration Measure.
ENDORESS BILL
AS PRESENTED
Washington, D. C, March 7. "Care
fully preserving the priniciples so clear
ly enunciated in the Republican plat
form of 190S," is the way the majority
of the senate .committee on interstate
commerce, which made itg report today
on the administration railroad bill, in
teiprets -the provision to permit common
carr'ers to enter itno traffic agree
ments. Ihe report is signed by senators El
kins, Cullom, Aldrich, Kean. Crane and
Nixon and will be printed with the mi
nority report submitted a few days ago
by senators ClaDD and Cummins and
with the individual report of senator
Newlands. - J
Court Feature Approved.
Approval of the court of commerce
feature is given prominence, although
comment upon other provisions is far
more interesting. For instance, the re
port says that the effect of the traffic
agreement provision is to relieve car
riers from the prohobition of the anti
trust act while preserving unimpaired
the control of the interestate commerce
commission over all such agreements.
It is said that the provision is in exact
compliance with declarations in the Re
publican platform. After quoting the
clause of the platform concerning such
agreements the report says:
"The contention that this declaration
can only be complied with by requiring
the approval of such agreements by the
interstate commerce commission before
they become operative is in the opinion
of the commtttee. destitute of the
slightest foundation.
Caicfnlly Worded Provision,
"The section in question carefully
preserves the principles clearly enun
ciated in the platform and only by a
wilful distortion of language could it
be contended that this carefully guard
ed provision involved any abandonment
of the principle of competition between
naturally competing lines."
Indorsing the proposed court of com
merce, the report says that the principal
argument in favor of its creation is that
it wHl prevent delay and confusion in
the enforcement of the law by creating
one tribunal specially versed in the com
nlicated and often technical questions
arising out of the application of the
interstate commerce law to railroads
and other carriers subject to the act.
Supreme Court Cited.
Supreme court rulings are cited in
support of the contention that the scope
of review of the commission's orders
in the court will not be wider than it
is now in the circuit courts. It is con
tended that courts ought not be en- j
dowed with merely administrative pow
ers such as are involved In the exercise
of the commission's discretion.
The claim that there will not be
enough business to keep ihe tribunal
occupied, is not seriously considered.
The administration bill gives the at- I
torney general entire charge and con
trol of the interests of the government
in all cases and proceedings in the court
of commerce and in the supreme courT
on appealed cases. This is a change t
from the existing law. The committee f
says the present system combined in the
members of the interstate commerce j
commission the functions of mvestiga- i
tor, judge and prosecutor which is de-
clared to be contrary to the cor'ectj
theory of law, or procedure. j
Postponing Date for Rote. J
Comncnt'ng upon the provision fori
investigation by the commission of pro- .
posed Increases in rates or change in I
classification as soon as it jS filed the
! majority supports, alo, the proposition I
that at any time before the rate or class!- i
fication become" fertiv. tic c- lmis- j
sion should be empowered to postpone j
the effective date for a reasonable per- j
iod to enable it to investigate the pro- j
posed action. ' 1
The bill fixes this reasonable period
at 60 days and although the commis
sion recommended that this time be ex
tended to 120 days the committee says it j
believes that with due diligence the
commission can determine within the
time allotted whether the increase
should be approved.
As to the provisions relating to
through rates and routes, the shippers (
right to route shipments and making ,
annual reports, the majority follows the

Mysterious Band Of Lumbermen Who Meet In the Dark and Meow
f
Woman Held in Juarez Can
See Liberty, Yet She Has
It Not; Law Says Nay.
AND A CHILD IS
HER COMPANION
Patient eyes, a black shawl, a worn
dress, at last a woman all set in the
shadow back of the big record desk iii
the Jaurez police station. For many
days nearly a fortnight it has been
the patient eyes have looked out over
the desk at the array of drunken .and
debauched come to ghe their names,
to be searched, at last to be jailed.
These patient eyes have seen it all
for nearly two weeks, always there,
night and day, there on the bench in
the police station at Juarez. Tne pa
tient eyes often look put through the
open doors, across the old plaza, far
away there where the ancient mission
stands, from where the chime of belis
proclaim the arrival of each new hour.
The hours have dragged night and day.
But the patient eyes remain always
tranquil, appealing, yet unmoved.
The woman is a prisoner. She is
charged with a crime the theft of a
large quantity of anoney large, at least,
for her kind. She was arrested In Jua
rez on advice from Guadalajara, where
a person lives who lost some money.
The woman's name is Maria Concepcion
Corrantes. She is of the upper middle
class of Mexico, apparently respectable,
quiet, well mannered.
Not Alone.
Few woman prisoners are lodged in
the police station at Juarez, and for that
reason the woman is noticeable, aside
from the attraction of her eyes. The
stranger wonders why she has so long
been confined in the clean, airy de
tention room, there in the long line of
municipal buildings. And then a child
romps Into the room ,a pretty child in
a soiled frock, but a clean face. The
little girl runs up to the woman. "See,"

The Reason.
That is the reason that the Juarez
police would not allow the woman of
the patient eye? to be confined in the
public jail, among the bad women and
worse men of the place. The authori
ties of the south have 20 days, by the
laws, in which to claim the prisoner. If
they do not come, the woman will be
freed.
So she is waiting for the officers from
the south to come and take her back,

Philadelphia, Pa., March 7. Follow

quiet this morning. The police depart

the negro special policemen have been
relieved from duty, in order not to add
race riots to the troubles of the police

The turbulence of the night came as
an unwelcome shock to the hopes of
