I5ecan.se AVillianis Announces
Himself for Honesty at the
Polls, Which Payne Doubts,
WASHINGTON, May 9. Sectional lines
were sharply drawn in the House today
anil for a cime charges and counter
charRPs of dishonesty in elections by both
political parties were heard. The two
Hoar leaders, Messers. Payne, of New
York, and Williams of Mississippi were
Mr. Payne got the floor and criticised
the floor leaders for having the hardihood
to say he was in favor of honest elections.
"Since when was the democratic party
for honest elections?" he - inquired in
stentorian tones. "Was it when It was
depriving a certain class of citizens of
suffrage by every means, by perjury, by
fraud, murder, riot and everything else
under the sun?" He wanted to know if
the Democrats favored honesty In elec
tions in the State of New York, "when
time after time they carried the election
not by the honest ballot but by fraudulent
votes deposited in the ballot-boxes and
The Democrats, said. Mr. Payne, were In
favor of honest elections only when they
sot a majority that way. "Is it neces
sary for the Democratic party in Mary
land to disfranchise the black man?" he
asked. He declared that the Republican
party had an honest majority in Mary
land, and in order to overcome it . the
Democrats were bending every effort to
deprive every citizen of the right of fran
chise, "and thereby make a Democratic
state of Maryland."
Points to Philadelphia.
Mr. Williams replied that he had lis
tened to the lecture upon honesty in
' elections from the leader of the Republi
can party, "the party of fresh, new,
crisp two-dollar bills; the party of blocks
of tive; the party of the City of Phila
delphia; the party of lecturing boards
back In 1S7B: the party that carried the
election in 1S90 by wholesale bribery; the
party that, even as late as 1900, denied
that it had been receiving money from
Hductary corporations for political pur
poses and whose officials were convicted
of falsehood in the denial; the party of
If there was anything that was a
stench in the no. trils of all humanity,
he said, it was the City of Philadelphia.
; "H lias "such abad smell,' he declared,
'"th;U even fh($ Republicans themselves
could not stand.lt air the time." " :
Mr.. Williams admitted that there was a
time when" there was intimidation and
-fraud -in liis section of the country, but
rther wn some extenuation for it "when
"There never was. however," ho ex
claimed, "any excuse or extenuation for
the Retipbiiean party in its programme of
wholesale bribery in 1K96, l!KH and 1904,
when that party took the money belong
ing to widows and orphans and never had
the manhood nor the justice to return it."
Attacks Campaign Funds.
At one lime he said President Roose
velt ih1 the manhood to say that the
Republican campaign committee ought
to return the money "that had been
iil.ch.cd from the widows and orphans
who. are the beneficiaries of the policy
i holders of the New York Life and Mu
tual Insurance companies." Crossing
the aisle and pointing his finger at
-Mr. Payne. Mr. Williams said:
. . "Yes. there was u time in the his
tory of the South when revolution
atoort in the saddle, but.'" he added,
"wince then those States have adopted
new constitutions." The disfranchise
ment laws, he -declared, "were passed
. lor the purpose of preventing fraud,
and the Supreme Court of the United
. States, has upheld them." Still facing
Mr. Payne, Mr.. Williams remarked that
the "irentli'miin'K on,.i ........i... -. i.

Idea of the Democrats being interested
In honest elections."
Mr. Payne, he said, was from "the
party of the whisky fraud, of the credit
mobllier, of the star route fraud."
"Ah." he exclaimed, "I can bandy his
tory with him all day, but I don"t want
to bandy history."
- Should Publish Funds.
He - believed in letting the dead past
bury itself on both sides. "What do you
say now." he again shrieked. "What do
you say? Here I stand. I stand to
challenge you that every dollar that
goes Into a campaiagn fund shall be pub
lished to the world the day after it is
received so the world may know the
motive of the giver and the world may
Judge the means of corruption in the
hands of the recipient?" .
Mr. Williams backed slowly to his seat,
and as he sat down he exclaimed at the
top of his voice: "What do you- say for
the future? Let the dead past go."

COMMISSION WILL INQUIRE
Cannot Forbid Advance, but Can
Show Purpose and Whether Nec
essary AH Roads Not Equal-;
ly Affected by Depression.
WASHINGTON. May 9. (Special.) An
investigation by the Interstate Commerce
Commission of tne causes for the pro
posea general advance in freight rates
throughout the country is likely to take
place. Hints from Commission circles in
dicate this as a probability. Officially,
the members of the Commission have
a yet taken no cognizance of the action
of the railroad men in arranging for
new schedules, which will Increase an
nual gross earnings from $100,000,000 to
$200,000,000, according to conservative
estimates. Unofficially, however, they
are watching events with keen Interest
in all phases of the situation.
Cannot Prevent Advance.
There Is a precedent for an investiga
tion, as the Commission undertook one
along the same lines when a movement
to advance charges was Inaugurated in
1901, before the enactment of the present
rate regulation law. To Investigate Is
practically all the Commission, with its
present powers, can do. It has no power
to restrain any advance and may only
pass upon the reasonableness of a rate In
operation upon specific complaint from
a shipper. But an investigation, it is
pointed out, would give the country the
real underlying causes for the action
about' to be taken by the railroad of
ficials. It would show in what cases. If
any, the advances in rates were just
ifiable on the part of the carriers. It
might develop that other reasons than
those given by the railroads for placing
additional burdens upon shippers and
consumers play a part in the proposed
In official circles, which have to do
with railroad and commercial affairs,
there is no disposition to contend that
an increase of rates would not be rea
sonable and Justifiable in some cases
that general advances would be just
ifiable with certain roads. But there Is
a disposition to dispute the justice and
reasonableness of Increases affecting all
roads alike, regardless of territory and
regardless of whether the roads have
suffered much or little, from the depres
sion in business or from increased cost
Aim to Discredit Kate Law.
There Is a strong impression in Wash
ton officialdom that behind the causes
for raising charges openly stated by
the railroad presidents and traffic man
agers lies a plan to bring discredit upon
the interstate commerce act as amended
by the last Congress. It is not regarded
as an attempt to discredit the Inter
state 'Commerce Commission itself, al
though It is believed there may be a
design to cast odious reflection upon
the National administration at the same
time that It Is sought to bring the rate
making power conferred by the present
law into disrepute with the people of
It is insisted that the railroad mag
nates, who originally fought against the
extension of the Commission's power to
deal with the fixing of rates are now
turning to other means to render that
power distasteful to the people whose
sentiment and agitation forced Congress
to pass the Hepburn-Dolliver bill. It
would be natural, it is pointed out. for
them to seize an opportunity as soon as
possible after the new law had- gone
into effect, the popular impression being
that the ratemaking act would tend to
reduce traffic business all along the line.
SETTLE CLAIMS PROMPTLY
Railroads Find New Way to Win
Business and Conciliate Shippers.
PHILADELPHIA. May 9. (Special.)
A new gospel is being preached by the
railroads the gospel of prompt attention
to and prompt settlement of the claims
for loss and damage. In fact this de
partment of the railroads has strangely
enough become one of the main adjuncts
to the business of soliciting business, so
A greater change in railroad methods
could scarcely be Imagined, for in the old
days the loss and damage claim was a
means for the payment of a rebate and
for grevious loss and vexation to the un
favored shipper. Before the passage of
the Hepburn act, railroads apparently
maintained .loss and damage claim de
partments for the sole purpose of seeing
how little money, Justly due shippers,
could be paid out and how much it was
necessary to pay big shippers on unjust
claims in order to curry favor and secure
or retain their traffic.
Now that the new law has changed all
this, the railroads Tiave recognized that
there is no better solicitor for business
than the astute claims adjuster. Sud
denly the traffic officials have awakened
to the realization that, If they owe a
shipper money, the best, surest and quick
est way to make a friend, of him is to pay
it. and pay it without haggling and with
out keeping him out of his Interest for
months and maybe years.
So far have the railroads gone In this
respect that they are considering the ad
visability of paying 6 per cent Interest on
all claims 30 days after they accrue, pro
.vldlng they are found to be just claims.
The railroads constantly have tied up in
claims for loss and damage millions of
the shippers' money, and under any other
commercial conditions, if this sum were
due the shippers, interest would be paid
The loss and claim industry, if it may
be so termed, is of itself one of the largest
In connection with the transportation
business, and it is growing amazingly
every year, Last year the railroads of
the entire country paid out for losses
and damages the aggregate sum of $23,000,
000. This was a material Increase over
tho previous year. In handling such an
Immense business, the railroads now
believe that they should have astute and
competent men of more than average
The Pennsylvania Is one' of the roads
which are taking a lead in the matter.
On this railroad there is to be no longer
aiy haggling 'With the shippers nor any
attempt to befog the issues or to lay the
blame on someone else. Neither is the
shipper to be vexed with delay and sub
terfuge, but he Is to be given a square
deal from the start. Furthermore, all
of the smaller traffic officials of the com
pany have been clothed with authority
to deal with the shippers direct in claims
which do not exceed $100, and settle with,
them without reference to the general of
fices. In this way the shippers are
brought in closer contact with the men
who procure and handle their business,
and they know that in all matters of
claims they will be able to get an early
hearing and u sp?edy settlement. Other
railroads are following the example of
the Pennsylvania, and the change Is
working wonders in the relations be
tween the two Interests.
INCREASE SHOPMEN'S HOURS
Union Pacific Makes Improved Fi
OMAHA, Neb., May 9. (Special.)
The remarkable financial showing
made by the - Union Pacific Railroad
for the months of March and April re
sulted today in an order being Issued
to Increase the hours of 5000 shop men
from 40 to 50 per week.
The net receipts for March were
about' $10,000 dollars less than for the
same month last year. This report
was made by the executive officials of
the road but a few days ago, and car
ried with It an estimate that for April
even a better showing would be made.
This condition is considered remark
able In the light of stories of slack
ened business. rf
The order increasing the shop forces
was the first result seen of the im
proved finances. The hours of these
men were reduced during the finan
cial disturbance, and they have worked
short time all Winter. Several hun
dred more were discharged outright.'
The stock of the Union Pacific has
advanced 20 points In about two weeks
as a result of the Improved traffic and
has carried the Southern Pacific stock
At headquarters it was stated the
company is preparing to meet a large
demand the coming year for rolling
stock, and all old cars and engines
will be overhauled as fast as possible.
TRAIN MANGLES LABORER
Man Put in Boxcar Falls Under the
TACOMA, Wash., May 9. (Special.)
After being released from the detention
Jail at South Tacoma and placed on a
southbound freight train about K o'clock
this " morning by a patrolman, John
Brown, an Austrian laborer 34 years of
age, was in some manner thrown to the
tracks and dragged for about a quarter
of a mile.
Parts of his body were scattered along
the track for several hundred feet and
his watch and pocketbook were found a
full quarter of a mile from his mangled
Just how he met his death will never
be known. ' He may have been thrown
from the train or he may have slipped
and fallen. The policeman who placed
Brown on the train said he put him In
side a boxcar.
