Revision of Postal Rates.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 3fi -The Congres
sional Postal Commission resumed its
meetings today with Robert J. Collier as
the first speaker. He opposed the revis
ion of the laws governing second-class
matter a.s proposed by Third Assistant
Postmaster-General Madden. but ex
pressed sympathy with the. efforts of
that official to eradicate present abuses.
Mr. Collier did not believe there should
be an increase in second-class rates, but
was willing to have the law strengthened
if the existing statutes should prove in
adequate for the eradication of .abuses.
The other speakers of the day wer

Print dry's Nam on Stamps.
WASHINGTON. Nov. 2 Postage
stamps of the issue of 1V7. at
Presidential pestoffices, wilj bear on their
race the name of the state and city in
which the postoffice is situated. The
chief reason for this innovation is sajd.
at the Postoffice Department, to be the
belief that it will help do away with
postoffice robberies and make it. much
easier to trace criminals. The postoffice
robbery at. Chicago a few years ago is a
good example of the ease with which
Etiien post-ace stamps tan be disposed
of. for no trace of perpetrators was ever
discovered, although nearly JlKWm worth
of stamps was stolen, and these mostly
la small denominations Anot)er reason
for the change is to enable the Postoffice
Department to determine the amount of
business done by different postoffices and
prevent padding through stamps sold hy
torr.e offices to residents who do busi
ness in adjoining -cities.
Cholera Virus Contaminated With
Plague Virus Proves Fatal.
No Blame on Doctor.
MANILA. Nov. CT. As a result of ex
periments with cholera virus at Eilibyd
prison, ten prisoners out. of 24 who were
inoculated have died. The experiments
were conducted by Dr. R. P. Strong, of
the Bureau of Science. The death of the
prisoners took place a few days after
they were inoculated-
It is claimed by the investigators that,
the fatalities resulted from a contamina
tion of the virus with bubonic plague
virus. Cholera virus is in constant, use
here and it has proved beneficial previ
ously. It has been used in Spain in
thousands of cases with excellent results.
Governor-General Smith, in a state
ment to the public, exonerated Dr.
Strong and declared that the commis
sion would take care of the families of
the dead prisoners.

tered vouchers; approved by Supervisor
M. V. Coffey, of the printing committee,
calling for the pavment of bills of the

those of Phillips & Vanorden.
The first named member of the firm is
a brother of Supervisor Jennings Phil
lips The matter will at once be taken
up before the grand .niry. It is stated
that the evidence amassed during the day
will warrant the indictment of Coffey.
The Call tomorrow will say that Super
visor Sanderson, who departed for Los
Angeles a week ago. has left Los An
geles for an unknown destination. The
Call adds that the detective force em
ployed by Special Agent Burns has kept

Inquiry About Husband's Viola

ports on the Buford.
WASHINGTON, D. C. Nov. 26. fSpe
c.lai.i Where is Grace McKinlv Heidt.
the niece of late President McKinley?
According to newspaper reports sent
out from Des Moines. Iowa, she -was
discovered in hiding on an army trans
port on which her husband. Captain
Grayson B. Heidt of the Fifteenth Cav
alry, was a passenger for the Philip
pines. The lurid dispatch pictured Mrs.
Heidt in a starved condition. It Is
learned at the War Department that
there is no foundation for the story
that she was a stowaway on the trans
port Dix. That transport Is at Seattle
undergoing repairs and has not been
In commission for weeks.
May Have Been on Buford.
When the Sheridan went on the
rocks out in Hawaii and it was dis
covered that the small tugs available
could not properly care for her, aid
was summoned and the War Depart
ment sent the Meade and the Buford
to her assistance. Captain Heidt. who
was at Seattle, -was ordered to the Bu
ford for the expedition.
Army officers changing stations are
entitled under the regulations to trans
portation for their wives. Had Captain
Heidt been ordered to (he Philippines
for service Mrs. Heidt would have been
permitted to accompany him. But the
regulations prohibiting army officers
serving on transports from having
their wives with them is stringently
enforced- No power could have been
exerted of sufficient strength to give
Heidt permission for Mrs. Heidt to go
on the Buford to Hawaii.
Call on .peidt to Explain.
Officials of the War Department are
now asking was there a confusion in
facts In the story recently sent out
from Des Moines, and has Captain
Heidt been guilty of permitting his
wife to accompany him on the Buford.
If he has. he is likely to be ordered
before a court martial.
Captain Heidt's services on the Bu
ford have terminated, and he will soon
be back at Des Moines to rejoin his
regiment. It would not be surprising,
in view of the mystery which sur
rounds the whereabouts of Mrs. Heidt.

she was a stowaway on an army trans

FOME. Nov. 26 Referring to the
death in Rosen Saturday night of Mon
signore StaWewski. Roman Catholic. Arch
bishop of Posen. a, high Vatican authori
ty said today that no matter what com
plications might arise regarding the Pol
ish school question, the death of this
prelate relieved the, Vatican temporarily
of a most difficult situation, as the
Pope had been in daily expectation of
a demand from Emperor William for
the removal of the late archbishop. This
is what happened in the case of the late
Cardinal Ledochowski. After his remov
al from Posen as archbishop. Germany
exerted pressure and had a German arch
bishop appointed.
Efforts are being made to postpone the
appointment of a successor to Monsignore
Stablewski. In the meantime Auxiliary

First Report Shows . Stocks and
Bonds of Half Lines Exceed
Value of Property.
INDIANAPOLIS. Lid.. Nov. 26. The
"watering" of railroad stocks or ovr-
capitalization by the large, transporta
tion lines is commented upon by the
State Railroad Commission in its first
report, which will be made to the Gov
ernor of Indiana in the next few days.
The report is the first the Commission
will have filed since its creation by the
last General Assembly two years ago.
The report shows that 43 roads report
ing to the Commission state the value
of the road and equipment, and give tha
value of each per mile. Along with this
report is also shown the amount of
stock issued. In the comparative state
ment which the Commission had made
of these items it appears that 22 of the
companies have issued bonds and stocks
in excess of the value of the roads and
"These excesses." the Commission
says in its report, "constitute what is
commonly called 'watered' stock, or
over-capitalization. Eighteen of th
roads reporting show a valuation per
mile, on account of cost of roads anc
equipment, in excess of the stock and
funded debt, ranging from $42 to
$S6.000 per mile. An examination of
these figures with a purpose of finding
any relation between known conditions
and the paper valuation is useless."
Not Allowed to Question Hill.
ST. PAUL. Nov. 26. When the Stats
Railroad and Warehouse Commission to
day resumed its hearings of the Minne
sota Shippers' Association - complaint
relative to unjust freight charges, At
torney James Manahan, who in past

was denied the right, of cross-question
ing J. J. Hill, who was the witness to
day. The Board informed Mr. Manahan
that hereafter Attorney-General Young
would question the witness.
Mr. Manahan charged that the Com
mission was trying to throw a mantle
of protection around Mr. Hill, that he
might not be cross-examined. He
threatened an appeal to the Governor.
Mr. Hill's testimony was to a la.rge
extent a repetition of testimony given
by him last week before the Interstate

oath that Grace Brown was not drowned.
It was their opinion that she died from
blows which killed or rendered her un
conscious before her body was dropped
into Big Moose Lake. They declared
that there was not enough water in the
lungs of the body to warrant a theory
of drowning.
The theory advanced by the defense
was that the blows could have been administered.-
after death, and the line of
questioning indicated a contention that
the girl in drowning rose to the surface
of the water three times and each time
struck the overturned skiff and received
the' injuries on her head.
"The condition of the. girl's lungs did
not. Indicate drowning." said Dr. O. A.
Douglas. He described the bruises on
the head and face. There was a blood
