DENVER, Jan. 11. The -reorganization
plan of President "Frank J. Hagen
harth, by -which the National Livestock j
Association "was to be remodeled and j
ltd control vested In a board composed I
of representatives of the trades and
Interests allied in the raisins of live
stock, has been torn to pieces so far
as the railroads are concerned.
For two days an executive commit
tee composed of three representatives
of each Industry has been working- on j
the proposed reorganization, and It will
require at least one day more to, finish
Its -work. No report -will be made to
the convention before Friday morning.
Before it was dciinltely concluded to
prevent the railroads from acquiring
membership In the association a bitter
fight was waged in , the committee
room. The Texas and Colorado cattle
men became so wrought tip over the
possibility of the railroads having a
voice in the management of the Live
stock Association that they announced
their intention to withdraw from the
association if the measure was carried.
Other Western organizations gave evi
dence of a desire to take similar action,
and the adoption of the plan to admit

The roads are at a disadvantage as
far as a hearing is concerned. They
have no representation in the convene

speeches attacking them arc made.
Their cause has been upheld before the
various committees by men who believe
that they should be admitted, but they
are not trained tra'fflc officials..

OLYMPIA, Wash.. Jan. 1L (Special.)
The so-called printing combine won the'
first struggle in the House today in the
contest over the Legislative printing. The
printing combine is formed by tho man
agers of leading printing-houses in Seat

These managers are: Pliny Alien, of
Seattle; Al B. Howe, of Tacoma, an'd J,
C. Corbaley, of Spokane. They have
leased the old state printing plant in
Olympla at an expense of J1O0O per month,
which sum, however, may be applied on
the purchase price, if desired, the total
consideration to be 50000.
This morning In the House the commit

current resolution which required tho

OLTMPIA. Wash., Jan. 11. (Special.)
It was- announced at the office -of Gov
ernor Mead today that the appointments
on the Governor's personal staff hereto

tion: "Owing to -the character of the indorse,

for positions on the staff. I inferred that
the gentlemen recommended filled all the

My attention, however, has been directed
to thf following provision in the law:
" "No person shall be appointed a mem
ber of the Governor's staff except as
Judge-Advocate or military secretary, un
less he shall have .served three years in
the National Guard of this or some other
stat- or in the Army of the United States
"Until such time as the applicants- for
positions on the staff have submitted their
military records In conformity with this
provision, personal staff appointments
will not be made."

Newlands said It 'was time to ignore

of railroads and added that the power
sought was constitutional and involved no
contradiction of Democratic views as
to tho reserved powers of states and local
self-government. He held that, because
of the relations of railroads to Inter
state commerce and the Jurisdiction of
Congress over Interstate commerce. Con
gress had a clear right to exempt Inter
state railroads Incorporated under Nation
al legislation from all state or local tax
ation nnd from the regulation of rates
by such states.
Increase Commission's Power.
He advocated nn Increase of authority
of the Interstate Commerce Commission
so as to authorise it to regulate rates.
and said the transfer of control of the
railroads now exercised by all the states
to the National Commission would have
the very desirable effect of destroying re
hates. Such control, he contended, would
be advantageous to the railroads, in that
It would relieve them from the opposi
tion of varying conditions of popular judg
ment and take them out of politics.
"The only way to get them out of pol

a fixed and just rate and by unifying the
control of their operations In a body of

lieve the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion to be."

Foraker asked Newlands how he pro
posed to secure the reincorporation of the
various railroad companies, as proposed
by his resolution, to which Newlands
replied that his measure Is so framed as
to partially drive 'and partially coax tho
results. He added that one means which
might be resorted to would he to prohibit
roads from taking out any but National
corporation papers and from engaging it.
"JDoes the Senator claim that thf power

Newlands replied he did not contend that
Congress had power to regulate commerce

did contend, however, that when the Gov

had power to tax It out of existence.
The statehood bill was taken up and an
amendment adopted which will have the

NEW YORK. Jan. 11. Three police
men and two Hebrew women were In

Broad street, in the heart of the busi

It was accompanied by some sensa

so insistent that they hroke down an
Iron railing around a light-well In
front of the building and it was only
by desperate clubbing on the part of
the pollco that the excited und unruly
mob was prevented from forcing many
of Its number Into the welL The po
licemen and women were hurt at thut

of the iJelaccv-street station was;
finally called out and policemen were
stationed at Intervals of five or six

wrong with the Institution- Five hun

bank opened today, though not all of
that number were depositors.
The bank, which has deposits of $10,

and which. Cashier A. I. Voorhes
said, earned 244 per cent profits last
year, sent for money early today and
$250,0-0 was brought by the wagon. At
