Commerce Commissioner Tells
Why Railroads Suffer

CHfC'AGO, Nov. in. Commissioner
Charles A. Trouty, of the Interstate Com
merce Commission, while in Chicago to
day on his way to Milwaukee, where an
Investigation of the elevator situation
will be made, took Issue with President
James J. Hill, of the Great Northern,
and other railroad officials who recently
have declared that the Government's rate
policy tends to frighten Investors away
from railroads and thereby, disable tho
roads from making: adequate provision
for handling the country's traffic. In an
interviey Mr. Prouty said:
"I came on the Commission In 1R97, when
business was Just beginning to revive.
Almost ever since' then business has
grown better and traffic heavier. The
mails have said from year to year:
".This thing can't continue. If we buy
enough equipment for this year's business
we won't need it next year," and they
have acted accordingly. This Is the rea
son why traffic has Increased So much
faster than the facilities for handling; It.
"I believe the tendency of rates ought
to be downward as traffic grows denser,
but the Commission contemplates no
wholesale reduction."
Regarding a recent report that Presi
dent Roosevelt would recommend In his
annua! message legislation legalizing the
various railway traffic associations, Mr.
Prouty said:
"1 have no information that the Presi
dent will mako any such recommendation,
but ersonally I am in favor of such
legislation. There is no doubt tho exist
ence ef associations violates the anti
trust law. Nevertheless they serve a
useful purpose, and if their proceedings
were made public and the Commislon had
supervision of rates made by them, the
associations would bo robbed of their
power for harm." .

Federation's Opinion on Stop
ping Child Labor.
Convention "Expresses Distrust of
Federal Courts Marine Disasters
Attributed to the Employment
of Incompetent Seamen.
MINNEAPOLIS. Minn.. Nrrt-.-13.-De-splte
Senator . Albert J. Beveridge's an
nouncement at Richmond. Ind., Sunday
evening that he intends to introduce a
bill In the Senate prohibiting the employ
ment of child labor, the American Federa
tion of Labor, now in convention here,
decided today that a National law would
be unconstitutional and therefore agreed
to urge the passage of state laws that
will "stop the crushing out of child labor
In the mills and factories and coining
Its life-blood into dollars upon the coun
ters of commercialism."
Tho convention also urged favorable
consideration of the proposed amendment
of the Federal constitution providing for
woman suffrage.
The federation extends a helping hand
to the postal clerks, who are character
ized as "helpless to better their condi
tion." The boycott law of Alabama is
to be fought: the employment of inef
ficient seamen, causing disasters., is de
plored: the employment of Chinese sail
ors on American vessels condemned: the
overloading of lake vessels condemned.
The convention also urged the taking of
steps to stop the employment of foreign
"cheap" musicians and reaffirmed the boy
cott against many large concerns.
The Convention voted to support the
bill which William R. Hearst will present
to Congress with a view to having the
defects to the Sherman anti-trust law re
moved. With only one dissenting, voice, the
convention adopted a resolution calling
upon tiie judiciary committee of the Na
tional House of Representatives to re
port to the House a joint resolution which
provides for the submission of an amend
ment to the Constitution allowing women
to vote.
Another resolution was adopted indors
ing and urging the passage of Represen
tative Golden's bill In Congress to safe
guard passengers on ocean steamers, so
as to prevent such disasters as the Slo
cum and Valencia horrors.
Debate over the relative desirability of
state or Federal legislation on child la
bor occupied much of. the session today.
State legislation was timilly indorsed by
the combined vote of those who held
that under the constitution Congress
could not legislate on the ages and hours
of labor in the various states and of those
who through distrust of the Federal
courts wished laws which would be en
forced by judges answerable more di
rectly to the voters.
