DEFECTS ARE FOUND
Hepburn Railroad - Rate Bil
Open to Criticism.
COURTSHOULD BE PERMANENT
Under His Plan Judges Would Get
Lower Salary Than Commissioners
and Be ConstantlyTaken From
Regular Court Business.
OREGON! AN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Jan. 27. The Hepburn bill -will be
the basis of all discussion on Interstate
commerce legislation from now until the
bill is passed or until the expiration of
the Filty-eiffhth Congress stops further
consideration of any measure of this
kind. The bill had not been introduced
an hour before ft number of criticisms
were passed upon It- It wag pointed out
that the salaries of the Commissioners
were too high in comparison with those
of the Judges who -would be selected to
review their decisions. The Hepburn bill
elves the commissioners ,000 a year,
-while the Judges, being Circuit Judges
of United States Courts, would receive
but 57000 a year. It was stated to bo in
congruous that the reviewing tribunal
should receive less compensation and
naturally be Inferior men to those who
promulgated the order fixing rates. This
could easily be remedied by increasing
the salaries of the Judges.
The constitution of the Court of Com
merce is also stated to be in bad form
and is no doubt somewhat crude. To
have the Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court at the beginning of each year se
lect five Circuit Judges to act as a Com
merce Court would be an innovation in
the Judicial proceedings of the country.
But more than that, it would interfere
with cases that were pending, as the
court would have cases coming over from
one year to another, and there never
would be a place where Judges could be
removed and others selected. If a
court is selected, it should be permanent
and not subject to change for any pur
pose whatever. Of course, this matter
could be fixed up by an amendment when
the bill is further considered.
The bill seems to be unnecessarily long
for Its purpose and there is not much
doubt that its extreme length will be suf
ficient to prevent any action being taken
at this session of Congress. The only
kind of legislation that seems possible
now is that in some simple form which
could be easily understood and would not
necessitate great changes of the present
law or establish many new rules In con
nection with the railroad world. How
ever, the Hepburn bill Is fairly launched
and is being picked to pieces by railroad
men. These men have been against any
legislation whatever, and it remains to be
seen whether they are strong enough to
prevent anything being done.
It remains almost wholly with the Presi
dent. If he maintains his position and
insists that there .shal be railroad legisla
tion, neither the railroads nor the men
who are supposed to represent them In
the Senate and House can prevent ac
tion. They might delay it for this Con
gress, but they could not in another ses
sion. WRONGS OF THE SHIPPERS.
Senate Committee Hears Fruit, Veg
etable and Cattlemen.
, WASHINGTON, Jan. 27. The Senate
committee on interstate commerce gave
a hearing today on the subject of railroad
legislation. Judge S. H. Cowan, of Fort
Worth. Tex., advocated several amend
ments to the interstate commerce act as
a method of reaching combinations of
railroads to fix joint rates.
E. M. Ferguson, who represents fruit
and vegetable shipping associations, made
a brief speech in favor of the Elklns bill.
He protested against discriminations In
favor of concerns operating private re
frigerator cars and charged that these
owners get rates of from $100 to $200 less
per car than other shippers.
Judge Oowan, representing several
cattlegrowers' associations, who was
heard by the House committee, repeated
charges of discrimination in carrying
cattle to Northern points, saying that
there was an agreement between the rail
way companies which fixed joint rates
between various points. Judgo Cowan
said that no- cattle shipper was discrimi
nated against, but competition on rates
had disappeared by reason of combina
tions of railroads and the rates had been
advanced to many points.
The Sherman law. as a means of reach
ing combinations and conspiracies of that
character, was held to be sufficient by
Senator Elklns. He declared that the
United States District Attorney could
proceed under that law. Judge Cowan
said he was under the impression that it
was the Attorney-General who deter
mined what actions should be Instituted
under the Sherman law. Senator Car
mack took the same view and several
others said that the District Attorney sel
dom brought actions except in minor
HIS RECORD AGAINST HIM.
Savage Meets Opposition for Postmas

OREGONLaN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Jan. 27. D. L. Gillespie has re
signed as postmaster at Brewster. Wash.,
In favor of J. EL Savage. J. E. Bassctt Is
also an aspirant for the ofllce. Savage,
it Is recalled, was once United States
Commissioner at Brewster, and was re
moved from ottice on account of irregu
larities in attesting an oath. His record
has been brought to light as an argument
why he should not be appointed. Repre

problem, and will make his own selection.
The Postoifice Department is consider

SUITS BY BIG COKE COMPANY
They Claim $2,500,000 From Penn
sylvania Road for Discrimination.
PHILADELPHIA. Jan. 27,-Suits for
damages aggregating almost 52.500.tXO
were brought against the Pennsylvania
Railroad Company in the United States
Circuit Court by the Pennsylvania Coal
and Coke Company and the Webster Coal
and Coke Company, both of Pennsylvania.
The suits were based on alleged discrim
ination and favoritism shown competing
companies by the defendant and the re
fusal and neglect to furnish sufficient cars
to transport the output of coal, and coke
of the plaintiffs, and the failure to allow
the plaintiffs certain rebates that were
made to others. The suits are brought
under the Interstate Commerce act
WILL VOTE ON STATEHOOD.
Senators Agree to Wind Up Debate
on February 4.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 27. Negotiations
looking to fixing a time for voting on the
statehood bill have practically culminated
in an agreement to vote Saturday, Feb
ruary 4. The opponents of Joint state
hood have given their consent to the date,
but it may be changed in order to ac
commodate some who may still desire to
speak. The first vote will probably be on
an amendment admitting all the terri
tories as states as they now stand, and
the next eliminating Indian Territory and
Arizona and admitting Oklahoma and
New Mexico as states, as the boundaries
are- now fixed.

RUSSIAN HEADQUARTERS, HUAN

the news of the strike disorders and
shooting at St Petersburg and other cities

"We face the news as warriors. How
ever grievous it may be, our conscience Is
not clouded. The spirit with which the

ROUVIER DECLARES POLICY.
Will Follow Lines Combes Laid Down,
and Is Voted Confidence.
PARIS, Jan. 25. The Rouvler Ministry
held Its first formal council at the Elysee
Palace today under the presidency of
President Loubct Premier Rouvler sub
mitted his declaration of policy, which
was approved. Later the Premier pre
sented the declaration to Parliament. It
follows the policy of the late Premier
Combes, the main features being an In
come tax, the separation of church and
state, worklngmen's pensions and a re
duction of the term of military service,
with declarations severely condemning the
system of secret reports of the lives of
army officers, which brought about tho
downfall of the Combes Cabinet
The first actual work of the new Cabi
net was Its approval of the dismissal of
Commandant Rcgnlcourt from the
Legion of Honor for making secret re
ports and relieving General Pclgne from
membership in the Superior Council of
War for similar reports.
Foreign Minister Delcasse reported that
the situation In Morocco has greatly Im
proved. An unexpected Incident occurred In the
Chamber of Deputies while M. Rouvler
was reading the declaration of policy of
the new Ministry. Tho declaration con
tained a favorable reference to the active
observance of the Franco-Russian alli
ance. As the Premier made this an
nouncement he was Interrupted by cries
from the Extreme Left of "Down with
the Czar!" mingled with cries of "Assas
sins!" The President of the House. M.
Doumer, suppressed the demonstration,
declaring amid applause that the Cham
ber would not listen to such words.
During the debate on the general policy
of the government M. Rouvler said, rela
tive to the separation of church and
"Separation was not a part of the orig
inal programme of the Combes cabinet,
but only arose through special circum
stances. If separation Is made, it Is well
we should understand It thus. While re
serving the rights of the state and re
specting the liberty of conscience of Cath
olics, wc would like to accomplish It
with unanimity. The government will not
oppose the separation, but It Is best first
to discuss the income taxi"
After a spirited debate with reference
to secret reports, M. Berteaux. Minister
of War, defended the dismissal of offi
cers, which, he said, was necessary la
the Interest of discipline.
M. Delcasse, amid constant Interrup
tions from Socialist members, replied to
criticisms of the government's attitude
regarding the Franco-Russian alliance,
contending that It had been greatly bene
ficial to France.
A motion placing the debate on separa
tion of church ana state immediately alter
the Income tax was rejected.
M. Sarrien then presented a general vote
of confidence that the government would
realize the reforms declared In the pro
gramme announced by Premier Rouvier,
which was carried. The result Is a dis
tinct success for the ministry.
ROME. Jan. 27. Premier Rouvler's

REV. H. Q. REED.
423 "W. Union St., Jacksonville. Fla., Nov. 10, Ito?.
Gentlemen For several years I have suffered greatly with throat trouble and
weak lungs. The doctors said I had consumption. 1 was able to keep up with my
work with great difficulty but I Anally got so bad that I had not strength to deliver
an address. A member of my congregation recommended and brought me a bottlo
of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey. I took that one. and later on several more bottles,
according to directions, and It has completely cured me.
I am opposed to whiskey as a beverage, but I know that your whiskey, which 1
sold as a tonic. Is a most valuable medicine. I feel that I owe my life to it. I havo
lost one daughter with consumption, and 1 believe that had she had .Duffy's Purr
Malt Whiskey she would have been alive today. I trust that I can be of service ta
others by recommending your great medicine to them before it is too late. Rev.
H. G. Reed. Baptist Minister and Ed. Sunday School Lesson.
Duffy's Pure Malf Whiskey
Consumption seldom attacks until the system is run down and weakened by
sickness, overwork, worry, exposure or inherited tendencies. Duffy's Pure Malt
Whiskey is the greatest strengthener and health builder known to medicine. It not
only checks the ravages of the disease Itself, but replaces the weakened, destroyed
tissues: helps the stomach to more perfectly digest and assimilate food In order that
more, richer and purer blood will come from It: and regulates and governs tha
heart's action, so that the circulation will be strong and powerful, carrying health
and vigor to every organ and part of the human body.
Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey Is absolutely pure and free from fusel oil the only
whiskey recognized by the Government as a medicine. It has been prescribed by
doctors of all schools and sold by reliable druggists and grocers everywhere for over
50 years. $1.00 a bottle. Every testimonial is published in good faith and guaranteed.
