Restriction ol Time Causes Criticism.
Roosevelt Children Share JFun.
WASHINGTON, April 24. Easter Mon
day was celebrated by the children of
"Washington with their annual egg-rolling
on the "White House grounds. For this
festival heretofore, the grounds have been
given up to the children for the entire
day, but this year it was determined by
Colonel Broomwell, Superintendent of
Public Grounds, to limit the festivities to
the period from 3 A. M. to 1 P. M. At the
latter hour the grounds were cleared of
the crowds, the people being directed to
the white lot, immediately south of the
"White House grounds proper, where the
children continued their annual romp dur
ing the remainder of the afternoon.
The change in the programme from
that of previous years was the subject
of some sharp criticism of those in charge
of the arrangements for the festival.
Hundreds of parents, accompanied by
their children, did not arrive at the White
House grounds until after noon, and many
of them did not conceal their disapproval
of the order to leave the grounds.
Mrs. Roosevelt invited a party of friends
to view the egg-rolling from the south
portico of the White House. The young
Koosevelt children, with some of their
Playmates, -participated for a time in the
frolic, having evidently a Joyous time.
During the afternoon the Marine :band
gave a concert on the White House lawn,
which attracted thousands of persons..

President Bigelow"s defalcation amounts
to about $1,450,000. but he restored $300,000.
The directors have subscribed 51,635,000
more, thus leaving the bank better off by
nearly $500,000 than it was before the
funds were depleted by the speculations of
the president.
Bigelow Has Lost Three 3IilIlon.
Bigelow is left a poor man by his
speculations and the surrender of the se
curities to the bank today. At one- time
he was personally rated as a millionaire,
and this fortune has been lost, as well
as the sum taken from the bank. His
total losses In speculation of -various kinds
in two years are estimated by his friends
at more than $3,000,000. He has a mag
nificent home on Astor street and his
family Is one of the most prominent so
cially In this city. Bigelow is a member
of the leading clubs, has been known as
one of the most generous donors in the
cause of charity, and has been a favorite
with all classes. He is prostrated by the
whole affair, and, although he appeared
at the bank during the early hours of
business, he retired to his home and re
mained there awaiting the appearance of
the United States Marshal with the war
rant for his arrest. In addition to - his
banking interests he was head of several
large mining concerns. Recently he, with
others, began suit for the recovery of
$5,000,000 paid for a patent airbrake device,
which, it was alleged in the complaint,
was worthless. He also promoted an enor
mous electrical company that has exten
sive -works In this city and Is interested
in several other concerns of a similar

He declined to say today whether these
had Impaired his capital, and declined to
discuss his defalcation or the conditions
that led up to it. A formal statement was
Issued by Mr. Bigelow as follows:
I hare no excuses to make. I do not care to
speak of motives which I had and had no
right to have. The ble men among the di
rectors of the bank have come forward in a
-way that should give absolute confidence to the
community, and they arc deserving of the
highest praise. There are no better men In
any community and no stronger men finan
cially. The bank will be better and stronger
than ever. My family has been kept in Ig
norance of the conditions, and their method of
living 1b not to be laid up against them.
Directors Say Bank Is Solvent.
Late today the directors issued the fol
lowing statement:
While the directors of the bank can aay no
word of assurance, so far as- the personal
aspect of this unfortunate caee goes, they feel
that It Is their duty, as citizens of Milwau
kee, and persons directly Interested, to assure
the public that the First National Bank Is
absolutely solvent. We make this statement
because there is possibility that many peo
ple may thoughtlessly confound what is a
personal matter with tho standing of the
bank, which is one of the great financial in
stitutions ok the Northwest.
The board of directors decided that no
attempt should be made to shield the
chief defaulter and his associates in the
crime from their full measure - of pun
ishment, and they will be prosecuted to
the full extent of the law.
At 9 o'clock everything was quiet In
the -vicinity of the bank. Posted on all
the windows and the stone columns at
the entrance were printed notices Issued
by the directors, stating the various
amounts subscribed opposite their names,
which. It is said, will more than meet
the amount of the defalcation. These
were eagerly read by passers-by, as -well
as those who had money on deposit. The
notice in a great measure had a good
effect on many who feared for the safety
of their deposits. The hank is said to
be amply prepared to meet all demands
which may be made by depositors to

MILWAUKEE, Wis., April 24. An inti
mate friend of President Bigelow said:
"Wheat speculation has cost the Blge
lows their name and the bank a large
sum of money. It is a family tragedy as
well as a tremendous shock to the finan
cial circles of the city. The father, Frank
G. "Bigelow, had Chicago speculative con
nections with the firm of Tracy & Co., in
which his-son, George F. Bigelow, was a
"In the late Armour-Gates wheat battle
and the sharp fluctuations of the market,
which have come during the last few days,
the Bigelows, senior and junior, were
caught and caught for all that the bank
directors now report. Hitherto the family
name has been of the highest In the city,
and the failure will come as a sad shock
to all who know them."
Gordon Bigelow Dissolves Partner

CHICAGO, April 24. Gordon Bigelow,
son of the president of the First Na
tional Bank of Milwaukee, was a mem
ber of the firm of Tracy & Co., of this
city. As soon a3 the facts were known
of the trouble in -which Mr. Blgelow's
father was Involved, it" was decided
that Mr. Bigelow should retire from the
firm. No other change was made In its
membership, and it will continue in
business as formerly, being in no sense
involved in the troubles of the Mil
waukee bank.
NEW TORK, -April 24. At the New
York office of Tracy & Co., It -was stated
tnat Mr. Bigelow left the firm by mutual
consent. R. D. Covington, manager of
the New York branch of Tracy & Co.,
said that he had been In communication
by telephone with Mr. Tracy, who is in
Chicago, where the firm's main offices are
located, and had been assured by Mr.
Tracy that the firm was not Involved nor

Reclamation Service Accepted Re
bates Under Law Allowing Them
to Government Settlers
Save on Irrigation.
ington. April 23. The Controller of the
Treasury accuses the Reclamation Service
of encouraging violations of the anti
rebate provision of the Interstate com
merce law. In connection with the award
of contracts, for Government Irrigation
works; the Reclamation Service indig
nantly denies the charge and replies that
It has been endeavoring, by entirely legal
methods, to save millions of dollars on
this wprk, not for the benefit of its con
tractors, not for the benefit of the Gov
ernment, not for the benefit of the rail
roads, but entirely for the benefit of set
tlers who will, in the future, take up
lands under Government projects.
With a view, to legitimately reducing
the cost of construction of big irrigation
works, the Reclamation Service, after
long negotiation with all the leading rail
roads of the West, secured an agree
ment whereby all materials for use on
Government Irrigation projects would be
transported at a greatly reduced rate,
sometimes for half rate. There Is a pro
vision of the statutes which, permits the
officers of the Government to make
agreements with railroads for the trans
portation of Government property at re
duced rates or free of cost. Jt was un
der this statute-that-tbe Roclamatlbn 'Sor
vlce was acting. But It was In the prac
tical application of Is policy that the ser
vice invited criticism.
Railroads Help to .Make Traffic.
The Reclamation Service denies that it
is encouraging violation of the anti-rebate
law: It denies that It is acting contrary
to the policy of the Administration, but
Is rather working for the public good, in
an entirely upright manner. Western
railroads which penetrate the arid re
gions where the Government is building
or contemplates building irrigation works,
have voluntarily offered to refund a large
part of freight charges on materials to
bo used on these works, whether the prop
erty belong to the Government or to
Government contractors. The railroads
take the broad view that Government ir
rigation means great Increase In their
business when the desert . Is made to
bloom: they know that arid lands, which
now yield no traffic., will furnish abund
ant trade after the Government builds Its
irrigation works, and they have liberally
offered to contribute to aid in this work,
which will be of benefit to them as well
as to the public.
Acting under these agreements with the
railroads, the Reclamation Service at first
called attontion of bidders to the reduced
rate offered by the roads, or rather to
their proposition to refund, and accord
ingly bidders reduced their proposals in
accordance with the reduction of freight
rates. The bidders did not profit a dol
lar by the transaction, for their bids
amounted in every case to what they
would ordinarily have bid. less the amount
of freight which the railroads would re
fund. Technically, this may have been
an improper method to pursue, but under
the then existing law, it was the only
way the Government could make a sav
ing for the reclamation fund. Had the
railroads made their repayment to the
Government, he money would have gone
Into the general fund in the Treasury: It
would not have returned to the reclam
ation fund. .
Xew Law Helps Reclamation.
At the last session of Congress a
law was passed which put an entirely
different phase on the matter. This
law provided that moneys derived
from the sale of property used in
constructing irrigation works, as well
as all moneys in any way earned or
saved on such contracts, should be
turned into the reclamation fund.
When this law went on the statute
books the Reclamation Service
changed its method of letting con
tracts. Now bidders pay noattentIon
to the reduced rate offered by the
railroads; they calculate on and pay
the full rate, but when the payments
are made the railroads return to the
Government by check to the Secre
tary of the Interior one-half of the
freight charges on materials, machin
ery, etc., and the money so returned
goes Into the reclamation fund. Thus
the cause of irrigation gains a double
advantage the cost of constructing a
given project Is reduced and the recla
mation fund is swelled to a like ex
tent. This practice, it is said, is en
tirely legitimate and lawful.
Tracewcll Barked Up Wrong Tree.
The crltcism of Controller Trace
well tended to give the Impression
that the Reclamation Service was in
the hands of a set of bold, bad men,
with no regard for law. As a matter
of fact these. men have a profound re
spect for the" law, but they also look
at the equities , of the case, and con
stantly bear in' mind the interests of
the settler. The homesteader on land
Irrigated by "the Government gets his
land free of cost, but he must pay for
his water rights. The cost per acre
for water is regulated by the cost of
.the project. Therefore, every dollar
saved on construction is a dollar saved
to the settler. Roughly, it is esti
mated that the concessions offered by
the railroads on transportation mean
a savins' -of, about.10 percent on-every

and Morrison.
project built by the Government, and
on this basis it is apparent that in -the
end the Government will save lor the
settlers millions of dollars. By this
practice the railroads lose nothing in
tho long run, the contractors neither
gain nor lose, the Government bene
fits, but, most of all, the burden on the
settler Is very materially lightened,
and that is what the Reclamation
Service Is striving for.
There may be technical details that
will have to be worked out; some
theories may be trampled under foot
In the pursuit of this policy, but the
present administration Is run In a
practical manner; It has a due regard
for the interests of the people, and is
not playing Into the hands of specula
tors, conniving contractors or corpora
tions. The Reclamation Service Is go
ing -ahead with its eyes open, and,
while its methods may not meet the
approval of some other - departments.
Its course Is heartily approved by the
Secretary of the Interior and the Pres
ident, and that Is enough.
Railroad Man Says Interstate Com
v mission Has Power.
WASHINGTON. D. C. Anril 24.-At th
( hearing on railroad rates before the Sen
ate committee on interstate commerce to-
: day Walker D. Hines. formerly of the
Louisville & Nashville Railroad, said in
j The interstate commerce act as at present
amended prohibits ex'ery unreasonable and
, every unjustly discriminatory rate. The In-
terstate Commerce Commission may itself
j originate complaints concerning any sup
I posed violation of the law. If It finds any
rate to be unreasonable or unjustly dls
I criminatory, the carrier must be ordered to
j cease and desist from continuing to charge
I that rate. If the carrier does not comply
: with such order, the Commission or any
parson Interested may bring suit and it
becomes the duty ot the Circuit Court to
afford a speedy hearing and to make and
enforce a decree compelling obedience to the
Commission's order If that order be found
to be lawful. On any such hearing, the
Commission's findings are prima facia evl
dence rs to every act found, so that the
presumption is always In favor of the Com
mission's orders. An nnoeal lies to thr Su
preme Court from the decree of a Circuit 1
, Court In any such case. but. contrary to the j
general impression, this appeal cannot sus-
pend or postpone the taking effect or the de, I
cree of ' the Circuit Court. If the Circuit I
j Court decrees obedience to the Commis
sion's order. th carrier must at once obey
it. notwithstanding any appeal, unless the
Circuit .Court Itself Is of opinion that Justice
demands that It should suspend tho opera
tion of Its decree pending the appeal and so
orders, and. If it so orders. It can Impose
such terms as It seems lit upon the carrier
as to giving bond or otherwise.
A distinct and very important procedure is
provided by the Elklns act whereby as to
any unjustly discriminatory rates the Com
mission In the first place, without any for
mal hearing or order, may bring suit In the
Circuit Court to enjoin a continuance of the
discrimination. This avoids all the delay
Incident to a formal hearing before the
Commission. Although the applicability of
this procedure to unjust discrimination In
tariff rates even between different localities
was more than two years ago expressly de
clared by the Supreme Court to exist under
the Elklns act$ and although it is evidently
a convenient and -speedy way of preventing
unjust discriminations, it has, never been re
sorted to In a single instance.
Method of Stopping Discrimination.
Thus there is In the present law definite
provision for the correction by the oourts of
every unreasonable or unjustly discrim
inatory rate, with special provision for the
speedy disposition of all such cases and with
special provision to prevont any delay on
account of appeals by the carrier. There
fore the widely prevailing Impression that
under the present law carriers may at their
pleasure and without control charge unrea
sonably high and unjustly discriminating
lates Is thoroughly erroneous. On the other
hand every rate charged by the carrier Is
subject to the direct and effective control of
the courts of the United States to prevent
such rates from violating the interstate law In any respect. It Is tht courts
and not. as frequently claimed, the carriers
who are the Judges of what is reasonable
and just under the law.
'This preventive method of dcallng with
unlawful rates was deliberately adopted by
Congress, but has never been found Insuffi
cient In a single case and therefore It is an
unwarranted attack upontho law to assume
without any facts to support the argument
that this remedy Is worthless.especlally
when the nature of the remedy ami the ex
perience under It go to show that it Is sub
stantial and effective. The numerous fail
ures of the Commission in litigation have
not been due to any defect In the law. but
have been due Invariably either to the Com
mission's adoption of Illegal methods or to
the Commission's mistaken condemnation of
practices not prohibited by law.

reparation to any person aggrieved by the
carriers charging an unlawful rate. Not
withstanding the interstate commerce act
provides a definite and practical method of
correcting all unlawful rates, there Is un
doubtedly a somewhat general Impression
that the act Is absolutely worthless and It is
necowary to a complete understanding of the
situation to And the source of this opinion.
This opinion Is undoubtedly due to repeated
public declarations by the Interstate Com
merce Commission and its members that
under the present law the carriers are utter
ly beyond any control as to Interstate com
merce. This view has been frequently stated
In many different forms by members and
officers of the Commission In newspaper In
terviews, magazine articles and public ad
dresses. The same Idea has been repeatedly
set forth In the official annual reports of the
Commission. Such declarations began In
1S07 and have continued down to the pres
ent time. As these declarations proceed
from the very public officials who by law
are the direct representatives of the Gov
ernment In interstate commerce matters and
whose express duty it is to execute and en
force the Interstate commerce act, the very
natural consequence Is that a large propor
tion of the public accepts these statements
as correct and therefore believes that the
law now provides for unjust and unlawful
tariff rates, whereas the law does provide
perfectly correct methods which have never
been Inadequate In a single Instance.
