Trade Commission's Powers Broad.
The Covington trade commission bill
would create a commission with broad
inquisitorial powers over corporations
engaged in interstate commerce.
After abolishing the Bureau of -Corporations
and the positions of Com
missioner and Assistant Commissioner
of Corporations, the bill would turn
over the organization and' powers of
the bureau to the new commission. It
then provides that all corporations
with a capital of not less than $5,000,
000, except those now subject to the
Interstate Commerce Commission, shall
submit annual reports, "records of its
organization, bondholders and stock
holders and financial condition" to the
Commission. The Commission may also
designate corporations having a cap
italization of less than $5,000,000 from
whom it desires reports. It may call
for special reports, in addition to the
regular annual statements required by
the bill, and would provide a penalty
of $100 a day for delay in filing re
ports. Investigations Are Authorised.
On the direction of the President, the
Attorney-General or either House of
Congress, the commission would be au
thorized to investigate facts relating
to any alleged violation of the anti
trust laws. The commission also would
recommend possible readjustments of
the business of corporations so investi
gated. When the commission finds in
formation as to "any unfair competi
tion or practice in commerce, not nec
essarily constituting a violation of the
law, it Is called upon to, report to the
President and aid him in making recom
mendations to Congress for remedial

A baby's inherited characteristic to

when the impact came.

the party looked among the ruins for
the missing child, but In vain. Finally,
some one cried out that the child had
been found. She was hanging for dear
life to the brace rods which run from
the bailer to the pilot bed. Apparently
she had been thrown against the pilot
and had grasped the rods intuitively.
The child was brought to Portland

Diva's Husband Hopes

Schumann-Heink May Miss
Engagement at Bayreuth.
DETECTIVES' STORIES TOLD
Results of Shadowing Defendant In
Jfew Xork In Evidence Visits to
Mrs. "Kitty E. Dean" De
scribed in Depositions.
CHICAGj, June 5 (Special.) "1 do
not want to tell the great secret in the
life of Madame Schumann-Heink. I
hope that it may not be necessary to
bring it into this case."
So said William J. Rapp. Jr.. husband
of madame, who is suing him for di
vorce before Judge Sullivan, of the Su
perior Court. Crowds thronged the
courtroom today, the third day of the
hearing, but were disappointed on fail
ing to hear the "great secret."
Detectives Depositions Rend.
They heard. Instead, depositions pre
sented by counsel for madame. These
were by private detectives and others,
and bore on the alleged close compan
ionship said to have existed between
Mr. Rapp and Mrs. "Kitty" E. Dean,
named as co-respondent in the case.
The reading of depositions will be
finished tomorrow. Attorneys Ellas
Mayer and Sidney Stein, counsel for
Madame Schumann-Heink, hope to close
her side of the case the same day. They
announced today that their client
would not leave Chicago for Bayreuth
until the case was finished.
No intimation of what the diva's al
leged "secret" might be could be ob
tained from Mr. Rapp after the hearing
today. The "secret" was mentioned in
the translation of a letter from Rapp
to madame and admitted as evidence
yesterday, but there was no further
developments regarding it today.
Secret la for Madame to Tell.
"What is the 'great secretT Rapp
"That is for madame to answer." he
said. "I do not want to tell of It, and
I sincerely desire that it may not be
brought into the case.
"But the fight between us is to be one
to a bitter end. In all my actions I
have tried to be decent and manly
toward madame. That letter showed
this to be true. Advantage has been
taken of my behavior, and now it means
that I must fight it out."
Attorney Mayer said that he knew
of no "great secret." He was asked
regarding statements said to have been
made by Rapp containing veiled inti
mations as to the reason for objections
to questions asked of madame and her
daughter last Thursday.
"Such questions had no bearing on
the evidence in this case," he said.
Spectator Expects Singing.
When court convened one woman
separated from the throng at the rear
of the room, entered the gate leading
to the "bench and approached a bailiff.
"When Is the madame going to sing?"
The bailiff looked at her In amaze
ment. "This ain't no opera-house, madam,"
he said. "This is a divorce court."
At the conclusion of the afternoon
session attorneys for Mme. Schumann- .
Heink expressed the fear that she
would be forced to cancel her engage
ment to . sing at the Wagnerian festi
val. They said It would be impossible
for her to make the liner at New York

Visits to Corespondent Related.
Alleged visits of Rapp to the apart
ments of Mrs. Dean were detailed to
day in several depositions. These calls
were made at all hours and some of
them continued until daylight, accord
ing to the affidavits. '
The associations of Rapp and Mrs.
Dean were sworn to by detectives, who
said they trailed them to a New York
apartment; by the Janitor of the build
ing and by Arthur W. Shaw, a negro
messenger, who asserted he saw the
pair enter a hotel in New York on a
February night in 1913.
Eugene Rossi, a detective, said be be
gan to shadow Rapp in December, 1912.
"The first time I saw Rapp he met a
woman on Thirty-first street and they
went to 37 Home street," he said.
"Neither of them came out "that night."
He said he followed Rapp and Mrs.
Dean on a shopping tour and told of
Rapp's entering the apartment with
his own key.
"He went there with a black satchel."
said the detective, "and the next morn
ing emerged with a suitcase."
Janitor Remembers, Too,
William Maples, smother detective,
deposed that he followed and watched
Rapp during the month of February,
1113, and that on numerous occasions
he saw Rapp In company with Mrs.
Dean. . The deposition said Mark Har
rison, an actor, was a frequent visitor
of Mrs. Dean.
John Berger, Janitor of one of tlio
buildings where Mrs. Dean had an
apartment, deposed that Rapp had been
