for his brutal treatment of prisoners
begins putting Howard through an or- J
deal known in police parlance as the j
Fifteen Minutes passed without a
word being spoken. There was deep
silence In the room. It was so quiet
that once could have heard a pin drop.
Had a disinterested spectator been
there to witness it, he would have
been at once impressed by the dra
matic tableau presented the dead
man on the floor, his white shirt front
spattered with blood, the cringing,
frightened boy crouching in the chair,
the towering figure of the police cap
tain sitting sternly eyeing his hapless
prisoner, and at the far end of the
room Detective Sergeant Maloney
busy sending hurried messages
through the telephone.
"What did you do it for?" thundered
the captain suddenly.
Howard's tongue clove to his palate.
He could scarcely articulate. He was
innocent, of course, but there was
something in this man's manner which
made him fear that he might, after all,
have had something to do with the
tragedy. Yet he was positive that he
was asleep on the bed all the time.
The question is, would anybody believe
him? He shook his head pathetically.
"I didn't do it Really, I didn't"
"Shut your mouth! You' e lying,
and you know you're lying. Wait till
the coroner comes. We'll fix you."
Again there was silence, and now be
gan a long, tedious wait, both men re
taining the same positions, the cap
tain watching his prisoner as a cat
watches a mouse.
Howard's mental anguish was al
most unendurable. He thought of his
poor wife who must be waiting up for
him all this time, wondering what had
become of him. She would imagine
the worst, and there was no telling
what she might do. If only he could
get word to her. Perhaps she would
be able to explain things. Then he
thought of his father. They had quar-

bill, the vote being 200 to 12G.
The long and short haul clause of the
bill is a radical change from the existing
, law, and provides that a railroad can
j not, without first gaining permission,
charge more for a short haul than for
a long haul over the same linp. This is
designed to prevent the railroads from
giving coast cities lower transcontinen
tal rates than the interior cities, and Is
bitterlv opposed by the railroads which
maintain that a fundamental law of
competitive rate making will be inter
fered with by such a rule. The interstate
commission also is given authority
whenever a new rate is proposed to
suspend the taking effect of that rate
for four months so that the commission
shall have an opportunity to consider

Under its terms a railroad company
must quote a freight rate accu

The commerce court feature is kept
in the bill. President Taft regards this
as the most important forward step in
