LAW IS' INADEQUATE
Interstate Commerce Commis
sion Wants More Power.
ITS ANNUAL REPORT PUBLISHED
Should Be Able to Deal With, the
Proposed Centralization of
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15. Tho interstate
commerce commission today made public
Its 13th annual report. The feature of the
report Is the strong Plea made that con
gress uphold the Tiands of the commission
by amendments making the interstate
commerce law more effective.
Tho report say3 the commission a year
ago called attention to tho fact that in
vital respects the present law has proved
defective and Inadequate, and that until
further legislation is provided the best
efforts to regulate must be feeble and dis
appointing, yet not a line of the statute
has been changed and none or tne Duraen
sone conditions which call for relief have
been removed or modified. The existing
cond-t-ons and the developments of the
past year, it is added, render more im
perative than ever before the necessity
for speedy and suitable legislation. Nine
tenths of the people know that any rall
rozi company can charge for its service
whatever it pleases without any real
power in this comm.sslon or any other
tribunal or court to limit the amount of
such charge, and they are substantially
of one mind in desiring that this and
other defects In the statute he promptly
remedied. Shippers generally also have
been practically unanimous in favor of a
s nge classification of -freights, -uniform
ti-r all roads and all sections of the coun
try ?nd reasonably stable when estab
lished. This general public dissatisfaction has
ben frequently expressed in resolutions
of various national organizations and at
a conference in Chicago last November,
attended by representatives from a num
her of national associations of manufac
turers, merchants and others, a bill em
bracing the more Important amendments
recommended by the commission was ap
proved as the measure which would best
jneet the lequ rements of business and
commercial Interests. This bill Senator
Cullom has introduced, and the report
significantly suggests whether the contin
ued failure to perfect the regulating stat
ute on reasonable lines will not soon re
sult in a demand for the most drastic leg
islation. Continu ng, the report says:
"If the pjans already foreshadowed are
brought to effective results and others or
similar scope are carried to execution,
there would be a vast centralization of
railroad properties, with all the power
Involved in such far-reaching combina
tions yet uncontrolled by any public au
thority which can be efficiently exerted.
The restraints of competition under ex
cessive and unjust rates will In this way
he avoided, and whatever evils may-result
will be remedylesa under existing laws."
The increase in railroad business the
past year has been so great, the report
sajs, that many carriers found their
equipment Inadequate for the service re
quired. Revenues Increased greatly, while
railroad failures fell off. The rush of
business "contributed to the Improved ob
servance of published rates and dimin
ished the frequency of those practices
which arc made criminal misdemeanors by
"Coincident with those schemes of un
ified control, and while this exceptional
movement of traffic continues, the car
riers operat'ng throughout an ex'ensive
ftd jnanpr$an territory toaye recently
m&8$ snbstantiaC-and, in" many teases,
ery large increases In their scale of
charges. Those, advances In rates have
ii en mainly effected by concerted and
agreed chaSige in the classification of
freight articles. It is not Intended to In
ornate that these advanced rates are un
lawful, and no opinion Is expressed as to
"their actual or relative reasonableness.
But the fact that such extensive increases
In railroad charges nave been brought
about by the method described must be
of significant Import and furnish a
ncghty argument In favor of measures
which will be effective to secure compli
ance with the primary requirements of the
These changes were made without a
hearing, and against the protest of the
shippers, and whatever may be the merits
of the complaints, the report urges that
the law ought to he so amended as to in
sure a determination whether the rates are
Just and reasonable, and redress if they
are found unjust. Reference Is made to
the several conferences held with high
railway officials early In the year, with a
Mew to gaining from each promises to
maintain their published rates, and to the
good effect of these conferences in check
Irg the rate demoralization then prevail
ing. It is denied that the conferences
sought to secure agreements to maintain
rates, the only purpose being to secure
good faith in observance of published
Fifteen cases are pending in federal
courts to enforce orders of the commis
sion, and criminal cases are awaiting trial
in Louisiana, Texas and Georgia. '
During the year 1899 there were 199 em
ployes killed and 5339 injured, upon S9
roads, against 209 killed and 54S1 lnjurea
In 1S98, a result attributed to the more
general equipment of the roads with
safe ty appliances.
A review is made of judicial decisions on
interstate commerce affairs .during the
year. Concerning the refusal of the cir
cuit court lor Northern-Illinois to de
clare unreasonable the terminal charge of
52 per car, made on livestock brought into
Chicago, the report says:
"The court seems to have overlooked
what is believed to he the dominant con
e'ieration in the case, namely, that if
the through -rate to Chicago was a reason'
cL.e rate before January 1, ISM, it became
an urreasonable rate when the $2 terminal
ch? -gt was added on that date. To make
a reasonable through rate represent less
sen ice than formerly and add on another
charge for the part of the service former
ly covered by the through rate plainly
may make the total charge unreasonable,
and that, the commission says, was the
rVITED STATES SUPREME COURT.
Newfoundland Prize-Ship Cane De
cided. WASHINGTON. Jan. 15. The United
States supreme court today decided an
other of the naval prize-money cases
Etqv. ing out of the capture of vessels dur
ing the blockade of Havana in the war
wrh Spain. The case was appealed from
the decision of the circuit court of Soutn
CrroLna. the vessel Involved being the
Newfoundland. The decision of th in,r
court was reversed, the supreme court
holding that the actions of the Newfound
land were suspicious enough to justify
seizure, but not to warrant forfeiture The
restoration of the vessel to its owner "was
therefore, ordered, hut without damages
or costs. The Newfoundland Is owned at
The supreme court decided the case of
S H H. Park and others, receivers of
the Union Pacific Railroad Company vs
the city of Kansas City, Kan. The case
Involved the constitutionality of the Kan
sas law authorizing cities to extend their
borders so as to include spme lands and
not others. The opinion rendered today
sustained the law, affirming the opinion
of the supreme court of Kansas.
Justice Brown rendered an opinion in
the case of Henry Bolln vs. the state of
Nebraska on application made by Bolln
for a writ of error to the Nebraska su
preme court in the matter of the convic
'tlon of Bolln, ex-city treasurer of Omaha,
ot the crime ot embezzlement. The opin-
ion refused Bolln's application, reaffirm
ing the opinion of th6 state court and ar
firming the constitutionality of the Ne
braska law providing for proceeding in
criminal cases upon information processes:
PAY FOR VOLUNTEERS.
Tnrner'a BUI for Rewarding Philip
WASHINGTON, Jan. 1L The bill re
cently Introduced by Senator Turner, of
Washington, which provides for paying
those officers and enlisted men of the
state volunteers who served in the Phil
ippines alter the legal expiration of their
terms of service the money that would
have been due them, had they been regu
lars and discharged at Manila, is as fol
lows: "All officers and soldiers in the volun
teer service of the United States who
were serving in the Philippine islands at
the time they were entitled, under the
law, to muster out of service, and who
continued in the service in those islands
after that period, and were thereafter
transported at the expense of the United
States to this country, and were here
mustered out, hall be entitled to re
ceive travel pay and commutation of ra
tions from the port of embarkation in the
Philippines to the place in the United
States where their muster-out took place,
at the same rate and to the same ex
tent that officers and soldiers of the regu
lar army would receive such allowance
If discharged In the Philippine islands by
reason of the expiration of their terms of
service, or otherwise; provided, that the
actual cost to the government of con
veying and subsisting such volunteer of
ficers and soldiers on government trans
ports from the Philippine Islands, and the
monthly pay allowed them for the period
while In transit, shall be deducted from
the allowance provided for by this act.
"That the proper accounting officers of
the government shall determine the cost
of conveying and subsisting the several
volunteer organizations affected by this
act, from the Philippines to this country,
and shall prorate equitably between the
members of 'said organizations, and on
the basis of the amount of travel pay
and subsistence due to each person, the
cost of such transportation and subsist

amount due each individual, and shall
ascertain andflnd all other facts neces
sary to determine the amount due the
several Individuals In the organizations

application on forms to be furnished by
the accounting officers.
"That there is hereby appropriated out

erwise appropriated a sufficient sum. of
money to carry out the provisions of this
This bill already has the Indorsement of
a large number of senators, and espe
cially those from the Western states
which had regiments in the Philippines.
Senator Turner says he hopes by this
bill in a measure to reward the gallant
and unselfish services of the volunteers,
who, though they might as a matter of
right have left the Islands several months
before they really embarked, rather re
mained behind and on the firing line until
a sufficient number of regular and vol
unteer troops could be sent to the Phil
ippines to take their places. According to
the provisions of this bill, the volunteers
will be allowed the same rate of pay as
would go to regulars, - which by law is
computed at the rate of one day for every
20 miles, for both officers and enlisted men,
which would bring the total up to a good,
Simon's Indian Bills.
Senator Simon recently introduced two
bills that will be wholly or partly ap
plicable to Oregon and Oregon Indians.
One bill provides that all entries of land
or allotments of land in severalty here
tofore made to any mixed-blood Indian, of
whatever degree, by virtue of any of the
laws of the United'States, are hereby rati
fied and confirmed, and said mixed-blood
Indians shall hereafter enjoy all the rights
of Indians In their respective tribes. All
mixed-blood Indians who are one-half or
less than one-half of Indian blood, who
have heretofore taken allotments of land
in severalty, shall at once receive pat
ents in fee lor said allotments, and 'all
such mixed-blood Indians who shall here
after take allotments of land in sever
alty', under any of the laws of the United
States, shall, upon taking such allot
ment of land, receive from the United
States a patent for the same in fee, and
said mixed-blood Indians, upon receiv
ing such patents, shall have the right
to sell, convey or incumber said lands,
and the same shall be subject to taxation
in the same- manner and to the same ex
tent as lands of citizens of the United
States are taxed.
"Sec 2. That any mixed-blood Indian
of mere than one-half Indian blood may
apply by petition to the district court of
the United States for the district in which
the land is situated for permission to sell
and convey or Incumber his allotment of
land; and If, upon a hearing had for
that purpose, said court shall determine
that said mixed-blood. Indian has suffi
cient capacity for and is capable of man
aging his own affairs, said court shall,
upon said petition and the evidence sub
mitted in support thereof, render a de
cree accordingly, and thereupon and there
after said mixed-blood Indian shall have
the right to sell and convey or Incumber
the whole or any part of said allotment,
conveying a fee-simple title thereto, and
upon the entry of said decree the whole
of said allotment of land shall be sub
ject to taxation in the same manner and
to the same extent as lands of citizens
of the United States are taxed, and upon
tho issuance of a patent for the allot
ment of land to any mixed-blood Indian,
shall thereafter be discharged from and
be no longer subject to the control of any
The other bill is as follows:
"That all the lands of the Umatilla In
dian reservation not Included within the
new boundaries of the reservation, and not
allotted or required for allotment to tho
Indians, and which could not be sold at
the public sale of said lands heretofore
held at the price for which they had been
appraised, and upon the conditions pro
vided in an act entitled, 'An act pro
viding for allotment of lands in sever
alty to the Indians residing upon the
Umatilla reservation, In the state of Ore
gon, and granting patents therefor, and
for other purposes,' shall be sold at pri
vate sale by the register of the land of
fice In the district within which they are
situated, at not less than the appraised
value thereof, and in conformity with the
provisions of said act, except that each
purchaser of said lands shall be entitled
to purchase one section of any subdi
vision thereof pf untimbered lands, and
160 acres, or any subdivision thereof, of
timbered land, and no more; and that resi

MOriVE FOR THE CRIME
JEALOUSY IAY AT THE BOTTOM OP
THE BARXET MURDER.
Mrai Molineux' Character Brought
Into the Trial Tlie Day's
NEW YORK, Jan. 15. In the trial of
Roland B. Molineux for the murder or
Mrs. Katherlne J. Adams, the prosecution
today introduced testimony to show a mo
tive for the poisoning of Henry C. Barnet
by Molineux. While Molineux is not on
trial for the murder of Barnet, it is ex
ceedingly important for the prosecution
to connect Molineux with Barnefs deatb
as showing Molineux's character, his letter-writing
habits and his alleged use of
cyanide of mercury to kill those whom
he hated. The testimony today rested
severely upon the good name of Mrs. Mol
ineux, but her husband listened unmoved.
The prosecution called to the stand Ra
chael Green, of Washington, D. C, who
testified she had at one time lived at 257
West Seventy-fifth street, where a Mrs.
Bell lived. Asked If she knew the de
fendant, she replied that she knew Mr.
Chesborough, who lived there with Mrs.
Chesborough. Asked if she saw Mr.
Chesborough In the room, she walked
through the courtroom in front of the
recorder's desk, steppedto within three
feet of the defendant and pointed her
finger straight at Molineux, exclaimed:
"That's the man."
The next witness was Minnie Betts, an
other colored woman. She testified that
she had been employed as waitress, and
had tended the doors at Mrs. Bellinger's,
in West End avenue, and that Miss
Blanche Chesborough had lived there; but
that she went away in the summer of
189S. The witness testified that she never
saw Mr. Molineux until after he was mar
ried to Blanche Chesborough. Asked if
any other man ever came to see her there, Jl
the witness replied in the affirmative. To
the question of what he looked like, Mr.
Weeks objected, and the objection was
sustained by the court.
Mr. Osborne was afterward allowed to
show the witness a picture of H. C. Bar
net. After an inspection of the photograph
of Barnet, the witness said that it looked
like the man who called on Mi3s Ches
borough, but that she could not remember
Other witnesses during the day were
William J. Kinsley, the handwriting ex
pert; Herbert S. Jackson, the undertaker
who prepared the body of H. C. Barnet
for burial, and Albert S. Osborne, another
handwriting expert, of Rochester, N. Y.
Paralytic Tried to Kill a St. Paul
ST. PAUL, Jan. 15. James Welch made
a desperate attempt today at noon to as
sassinate Judge William Lochran, of the
federal court. Welch had a damage suit
against the Northern Pacific for being
thrown off a train at Mandan, N. D. Af
ter a trial lasting three days. Judge Loch
ran last Friday took the case from the
jury and delivered a verdict for the de
fendant. Welch appeared at Judge Loch
ran's chamber today and leveled a re
volver at the judge. Court Crier Con
way knocked Welch down before he could
shoot. Welch was disarmed, but jumped
from the second-floor window and ran.
He was captured .and arrested. Welch is
a partial paralytic, 33 years old.
Woman Protected a Jfegro;
CHICAGO, Jan. 15. Mrs. Edward RIeck
blocked the doorway of her husband's res
taurant, at 582 West Lake street, Sunday,
and by threateningly swinging a long
bread knife kept at bay a crowd of angry
men who wanted to lay violent hands on
a negro, who had taken refuge In the res
taurant. The negro, Amos Moore, is em
ployed by an express company. He was
passing under the elevated structure at
Ashland avenue and Lake street when, he
says, he was attacked by seven white
men, who beat and kicked him without
provocation until he broke away and ran
for his life. He did not stop until he came
to Rleck's restaurant.
Mrs. Rleck was alone in the place, and
Moore excitedly told her he was pursued
by a mob of men who would kill him.
Seizing a huge bread knife, Mrs. RIeck
reached the door just as the negro's pur
suers came up. At this point engine com
pany No. 7, returning from a fire, camo
up. Mrs. RIeck called to the firemen for
help, and in less than a minute several of
the firemen were pursuing Moore's as
sailants in different directions. All of
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15. Charles
Joyce, proprietor of a saloon on the corner
of Seventeenth and Castro streets, was
shot and mortally wounded this evening
by Thomas Dillon, who was recently re
tired from .the police force. During a
quarrel over the payment for a drink, sev
eral shots were exchanged' between the.
two men. A bullet from 'a small pistol
fired by Joyce entered Dillon's cheek, and
was ejected through his mouth. The shot
which proved fatal struck Joyce near the
heart, causing his death in about 20 min
utes. Dillon was taken to the receiving
hospital, but his wound is not serious.

Coursing In Chicago.
CHICAGO, Jan. 15. Five hundred sports
devoted to rabbit coursing encounterea
the opposition of the Humane Society
when they tried to bring off the biggest
event of the season at Forty-seventh
street and Western avenue Sunday after
noon. They were compelled to leave the
inclosure at the warning of officers from
the Brighton Park police station, but
finally brought off the match just outside
the city limits, and in sight of the officers.
.The purse was said to be the largest
ever offered for a coursing event in Chi
cago. The affair, however, was unsatis
factory, and no decision was rendered.
The promoters announced that they would
make another attempt: to have the race
and will invite members of the Humane
Society to witness the affair. They deny
that there Is any brutality in the sport.

Return of the Fleet After a Perilous
Voyage In Arctic Waters.
All the vessels of the Dundee whaling
fleet, with the exception of the Polar
Star, which was wrecked in Hudson's
bay, have now returned from the season's
fishing. This year the industry, so far as
tho'Davis straits and Greenland fishing is
concerned, has been remarkably success
ful. In all, seven vessels were engaged,
or one more than in the previous year,
the Esquimaux going out as a yacht
whaler with a party of sportsmen on
The total catch of five vessels the Di
ana, the Esquimaux, the Nova Zembla,
the Eclipse and the Balaena consisted of
26 whales, estimated to yield 16 tons of
bone and 414 tons of oil. The two Hud
son's Bay vessels the Active and the
Polar Star were very unfortunate.
The Polar Star, after a long and con
tinuous struggle with the ice, beginning in
June and ending in September, was ulti
mately left to her fate In an utterly un
seaworthy state, on the western shores
of Hudson strait. The vessel encountered
fearful gales and sustained such damage
by being repeatedly "nipped" in the ice
that her crew and her cargo, 132 walrus
and four bears, were ultimately trans
ferred to the Active. The catch of the
Active comprised 173 walrus, 60 musk
oxen, 30 bears, 30 foxes, 6 wolves and 4

tinct fact brought out by this Investigation
la that wo have in this great city tho
oncst perfect Instance of centralized party
government yet known."
It declares "that we 6ee the central
power not the man who elts In the
mayor's chair, but the man who stands
behind it. We see the same arbitrary
power directing appointments, directing of
ficials, controlling boards, lecturing mem
bers of the legislature and the municipal
assembly. We see an enormous, an ever
increasing, crowd of office-holders, with
ever-Increasing salaries. We see the pow
ers of government prostituted to protect
criminals, to demoralize the police, to de
toauch the public conscience and to turn
governmental functions into channels for
private gain. The proof Is conclusive, not
that tho public treasury has been directly
robbed, but that great opportunities have
been given by manipulation of public of
fices, to enable favored Individuals to work
for their own personal benefit."
The conduct of the present police depart
ment of " the city of New York is pro
nounced .unqualifiedly bad.
The majority presented eight bills fcr
tho consideration of the legislature. The
most Important provides for the appoint
ment of a committee by the governor to
revise the New York city charter.
The minority report cays:
"As to the report ot the majority In

tests against the recommendation by the
majority for the creation of a commission
to revise the city charter, to be appointed
by the governor, and insists that any com
mittee of this character should be ap
pointed by the mayor of the c.ty of- Now

that it haa but a single recommendation

HOW MAUSER BULLETS WOUND
A Remarkable Case of a Soldier Shot
Clean Thronjrh. the Head.
After seeing their wounds, nearly all
caused by gunshot the onlooker Is struck
by the clean, well-defined, small, circular
entrance and exit the Mauser bullet
makes. It produces a canal not
much, If anything, larger than a
good-sized goose-quill, and cuts its
way through flesh and bone as
neatly as an archlmldean drill would,
leaving no ragged edges. It produces lit
tle local disturbance or bad after effects.
Hence shock to the system and subse
quent septicaemia are, owing to the less
ened destruction of soft parts and splin
tering of bone, minimized considerably.
By careful antiseptic treatment the
wounds heal In about 20 to 30 dava.
The course which some of these Mauser !
bullets take without rupturing important
vessels or producing dangerous effects Is
simply marvelous. To cut through soft
parts and follow the tracks made by these
missiles without doing Irreparable injury
would tax the dexterity of the most skill
ful and delicate anatomist that ever han
dled a. scalpel.
An extraordinary case is that of a sol
dier who was shot completely through the
head, the Mauser bullet entering the era-
nium on one side, and emerging on the
other. Not only is he Iivlner. but his
wounds have healed without a check a I and Senator McComaa favored the eon
