"Green, of the Southern Railway, resumed
the stand today at the private car llne
Jiearlns before the Interstate Commerce
Commission. He testified that his con
tract with the Armour car lines, for re
"frlgeratlon prescribes that the charges
unust be reasonable, . and no hlgher'than
tcharges for like service on other lineal
"In my opinion," he said, "the present
'rates are lower than could be made by
the carriers themselves. We have had
Jio complaints from shippers."
It -was brought out that the Armour
car lines are able to handle the business
economically for the reason that they
iiave It all and are able to prepare for It.
I Commissioner Clements asked Mr.
Greene if he did not think the shipper
hou!d receive some of the benefits from
'this economical service.
IMr. Northrup, for the Southern Raij
way. objected to the witness .answer
ing on the ground that the question was
loot one of "railroad, operation," but
While discussing this from a legal point
of view, Mr. Relchman said the sel
fiehness of the Armour car lines would
tinduce it to maintain a reasonable rate.
'Mr. Northrup added that the Southern
?Rallway Insists also upon reasonable
rates. Commissioner Prouty interrupted
Xilve by Armour's Selfishness.
; "Then it Is the selfishness of the Ar
mjour line and the grace of the South
ern Railway on which the shipper de
fends." , Protesting that the commissioner had
.stated the matter in an ungracious man
pier and unfairly, Mr. Northrup declared
.that "intelligence and business Interests
.had built up the refrigeration business;
khat it was not a matter of 'grace.' "

at the hoisting of national flags on the

Tho Pan-Russian Union of Railway Em
ployes has Issued a call for a general
strike on all the railroads of Russia. The
extent to which the call wliljbe' obeyed
remains to be seen, as the union "Is of re
cent origin, and ita strength is an un
known quantity, but up to midnight no
additional strikes have been reported. A
meeting of St. Petersburg railway men
was still In session -at a ;late; hour to
night, and had not reached a decision to
Simply Ask for Freedom.
The demands of the men are purely po
litical, and therefore it Is expected, the
strike will last only long enough'io serve
the purpose of a demonstration. The So
cialist leaders claim It .is called only to
test their strength, and Is a curtain-raiser
to a thorough and complete tie-up of the
Russian railroad systems In January, as
an object-lesson; fo the' government and
Douma. and that it will bo called oft as
oon as jt Is seen that-the strike ma
chinery 4b working perfectly. The politic
cal nature of the movement is shown in
the call of the national union for aigen
eral strike, which makes no mention of
economic demands and declares the work
men are -fighting fp.r"!the elcmerftory hu
man rights of freedom of speech and of
the press and a representative government
on the basis of universal suffrage.' and
that these are obtainable only by a striko.
"Brothers," the call says, "we have
great power in our hands. The railroad
employes throughout Russia share our
Iews. The time has come to declare a
general strike. Before our might the gov
ernment must give way."

SLUMP IN BIDS Affo'OPFERS
Held to Be GumMIng In Chicago
Board of Trade.
CHICAGO. Oct. 21. Members of the
Board of Trade have been told practically
In so many words by their attorneys that
if they continue to deal In "bids and of
fers" they are "skating on,, mighty thin
Ice.'.' It is understood that an opinion
has been handed to President Jackson in
which the attorney showed there was sub
stantially no difference between "puts and
calls" and '"bids and offers." the new
form of privilege, except in name. Both
aro gambling transactions, it Is held, in
defiance of the statutes of Illinois, upheld
by the Supreme Court. When this opinion
was given to the directors of the Board
of Trade it provoked. It Is-sald. the warm
est discussion held in executive meetings
of the board for years. Had action been
taken then. It is asserted that the ques
tion of permtlting members to deal in
."bids and offers" would have been defeat
ed, or., at least laid away for good. Friends
of the- new form of trade, however, suc
ceeded In having action postponed.

OUR METAL ACTION
-. " .-sr. By Long; Odds the Greatest Improvement
Yet Made in Piano-Player Construction
FOUND ONLY IN THE SOHMER-CECILIAN, THE FARRAND-
A . . eciLl.and the cecilian piaSq player
"We unhesitatingly state that-, there is no player action made today which can equal this new ono
of ours for compactness an'd .perfection of construction, for ease of operation, and for tho artistic
results obtained. t
. . The primary and secondary valves are now constructed of metal and all in one piece, thus occu
J.vig "n",jch lessjroom .thau did the 'old arrangement, and enabling it to be put into a much smaller
pace. than could be donq "with' tlie wdKIen actioh. -' " "'. . . t
The vacuum" clfest, or "tray," as we shall Kerohfter call it, is also made.qntirely of metal. Tho
Ipneumatids which, operate the wooden fingers'' of the Cecilian. are constructed partially of "metal instead
oT being made altogether of wood and rubber as heretofore. " ' '
The substitution of metal for wood wherever possible,' enables us;t6 condense the mechanism,, into
much smaller space, and .at the same time provides a-.uch lighter action than any of the old-style
.. .wooden ones. - .
. ' This in itself is a great and very important improvement, lnt it is not the mdiri thing.
' . . . TUq.. principal andi greatest feature is, that Ihe' ue .of metal instead of wood, absolufely and
completely does away with all of. the. dangers ancf damages to the action caused by dampness and
sqdden climatic changes! . - : ' "
. No matter how carefully constructed j the old- style wooden actions heretofore nsed in all piano
,.pla3'ers, although perfect when shipped, from the .factories, yrere bound, sooner or later, to become
"nffected by the changes in the-atmosphere- A,few rainy days might bring on the trouble. Starting the
furnace would, help it along'- In fact, anycbnnge oj: weather which would cause the wood of which
these actions were constructed, to swell or to shrank, was bound, sooner or laterT to crack, and, open
- up the joints of the wind-chests, or the pneumatics or the primary or secondary valves, so that there
.continuajjy existed- n slight leakage of air in one or more of . the various parts which were supposed
-to be absolutely air-tight, except when the air was admitted through -tha- -proper valves -provided for
vthat purpose. . , ",. ,
. .When a .leakage of. this kind occurred- anywhere in jhe action of any make of player, the trouble
, occasioned, thereby, .-was not qnly exceedingly , annoying to. the owner of the instrument, but it was
very hard for lhe Tepairer to locate, and 'when ,it was finally located it was usually necessary to ship
tle-instrument -back tp the factory where it was made, in order to property repair. it, thus causing
t gndless delay -and expense-, alliof which; is . entjely doneaway with by the use of this metal action.
Please bear in. mind that all of these troubles, about' which we have been telling you as incidental
to a wooden, action, were not only found to some extent in the old wooden action player, but are found
today in the wooden actions; of all the various piano players now on the market, and if you have had
much experieflcer with piano players yon know from experience that all we have said in regard to the
