HINTS TO CONGRESS
President Says" Certain New Laws
Should Be Passed.
MUST GIVE RELIEF TO LABOR
Allow Traffic Agreements Among the
Railroads Amend Anti-Trust
Law Reviso Tariff.
Washington, March 26. Insisting
that certain important measures should
be passed by the present congress, Pres
ident Roosevelt sent a special message
to both houses yesterday.
The message in part follows:
Child labor should be prohibited
throughout the nation. At least a
model child labor bill should bo passed
for the District of Columbia.
1 renew my recommendation for the
immediate re-enactment of an employ
ers' liability law, drawn to conform to
the recent decision of the Supremo
court. Within the limits indicated by
the court the law should be made thor
ough and comprehensive, and the pro
tection it affords should affect every
class of employe to which the power of
the congress can extend. In addition
to a liability law protecting the em
ployes of common carriers the govern
ment should show its faith by enacting
a further law giving compensation to
its own employes for injury or death
incurred in its service.
I also urge that action be taken along
the line of the recommendations I have
already made concerning injunctions in
labor disputes. No temporary restrain
ing order should be issued by any court
without noticce and the petition for a
permanent injunction upon which such
temporary injunction has been issued
should be heard by the court issuing
the parue within a reasonable time
nay not to exceed a week or thereabout.
I again call attention to the argent
need of amending the interstate com
merce law and especially the anti-trust
law, along the1 lines indicated in my
last message. The interstate commerce
law should be amended so as to give
railroads the right to make traffic
agreements, subject to these agree
ments being approvedby the Interstate
Commere commission and published
in all details.
In addition to the reasons I have al
ready urged on your attention it has
cow beome important that there should
be an amendment of the anti-trust
law because of the uncertainty as to
how this law affects combinations
among laboring men and farmers, if the
combination has any tendency to re
strict interstate commerce. All of
these combinations, if and while exist
ing for and engaged in the promotion
of innocent and proper purposes, should
be recognized as legal, as I have repeat
edly pointed out.
The time has come when we should
prepare for a revision of the tariff.
This ehould be, and indeed must be.
preceded by careful investigation. It
is peculiarly the province of the house
of representatives to originate a tariff
billfcnd to determine upon its terms ;
arid this I fully realize, yet it seems to
me that before the close of this session
provision ehould be made for collecting
full material which will enable the
congress elected next fall to act imme
diately after it comes into existence.
Ample provision ehould be made for
a permanent waterway commission
with whatever power is required to
make it effective. The congress should
realize in fullest fashion the fact that
the subject of the conservation of our
natural resources with which this com
mission deals is literally vital for the
future of the nation.
Numerous bills granting water power
rights on navigable streams have been
introduced. None of them gives the
government the right to make a reason
able charge .for the valuable privilege
granted. Nor Is any definite time limit
Bet, as ebould always be done in such
cases, and I shall be obliged therefore,
in accordance with the policy stated in
a recent message, to veto any water
power bill which doea not provide for
a time limit and the" collection of a just
and reasonable charge.
Many Traitors in China.
Pekln, March 26. Seven men arrest
ed recently charged with trafficking in
governmental secrets have been found
guilty and sentenced to long terms of
imprisonment. This punishment is
generally considered to be worse than
death. It would appear that the con
spiracy against tho government is fairly
widespread, and the revelations have
considerably alarmed the court. No
less than 30 important persons are now
being held in custody and it is reported
that the chief of police of the forbidden
city is among them.
Cannot Deport an Anarchist.
San Francisco, March 26 Joseph
Zaboski, an alleged anarchist arrested
by Detective Goff recently, has been
given liberty by the immigration com
missioner. The Inability of the depart
ment to find the date of bis arrival in
this country was a bar to deportaiton.
Tho polico claim to have located tho
headquarters of the foreign anarchists
in the Italian quarters and aro contem
plating a raid that will cleanse tho
place before the fleet arrives.
Kill Off Anarchist Papers.
Trenton, N. J., March 20, A bill
was introduced in the house today mak
ing it a misdemeanor to publish anar
chist newspapers. The bill is aimed
at a Paterson paper recently oxcluded
irom the mails.
HELD FOR MURDER.
Formal Charge Filed Against Slayer
San Francisco, March 27. In. "Whan
Chang and Ming Wun Chun, tho Co
rean patriots who elected to kill Dur
ham W. Stevens for what they believed
to be treoohory to tho Hormlt Kingdom,

fired tho shots which proved fatal to
Stovens, when informed laBt night
at tho jail of his victim's death, re
ceived the news without surprise and
with manifest dolight. Since tho day
of the shooting Chang has been ex
pressing the hopo that Stevens' wounds
might prove fatal. Last night, when
asked if he was sorry for what ho had
done, Chang said: "No; I am glad.
He was no friend of Corea, and he is
There is a movement on foot among
the Japanese to erect a monument to
Stevens. Japanese commenced going
about among their fellow countrymen
this morning broaching the idea and
suggesting that subscriptions be forth
coming. The proposition is still in
the tentative stage, but, judging from
the feeling the Japansese show toward
the dtad American, there will be no
difficulty' in bringing it to accomplish
ment. "Whether the monument shall
bo erected in this city, in Tokio or in
Seoul, the theater of Stevens' services
to Japan, has not yet been decided.
CITY ROBBED WHOLESALE.
Immense Frauds Discovered in Chi
cago Water Department.
Chicago, March 27. An amazing
system of robbery and graft, involving
city employes and big business firms,
and extending back through several
years, has been discovered in the water
department. Two employes, including
a division head, were removed, and 38
eubordinate employes will be dis
charged. Some of them may be in
dicted. Through tampering with meters and
the connivance of city employes, seve
ral large corporations have defrauded
the city of hundreds of thouEands of
dollars in water taxes. City employes
have sold meters to junk dealers and
bartered materials for drinkB in saloons.
Supplies never used by'the city were
purchased ostensibly for tne water .de
partment and then used by plumbers
in private bneineese.
The payrolls were padded with idlers
and incompetents. The force, which
originally numbered 200 men, was re
duced by Superintendent W. J. Mc
Court, of the water bureau, to 50.
TROOPS ORDERED OUT.
Striking; Alaska Miners May Destro
Seattle, Wash., March 27. Troops
have been ordered from Fort Seward,
at Haines, Alaska, to preserve order at
the Treadwell mines, on Douglass
island, where 800 miners have gone on
a strike. The troops are due to arrive
at Treadwell early tomorrow morning,
and serious trouble i& anticipated.
United States Marshal Shoup, who has
just returned from Washington, left
for. the scene of the trouble, on receipt
of dispatches from his chief deputy.
The miners have threatened to blow
up the works if troops are landed on
the island. They stole 10 kegs of dy
nnmito fcndnv from the mine stores.
Colonel Green, in command of one
company of the Tenth infantry, left
Haines tonight with a gatling gun, and
should reach the mines at an early hour
this morning. The other companies
stationed at Fort Seward have been or
dered to be in readinesB to reinforce the
first company if needed.
Just before his departure for Juneau
at 9 o'clock last night, Marshal Shoup
received a messaee from his chief depu
ty that no serious disturbances have oc
curred, but trouble oi a serious nature
is anticipated when the troops are land
ed on the island in the morning.
Claims Rights in Senate.
Ran Francisco, March 27. Superior
Judge Seawell today granted the Com
mercial Union Assurance company of
Great Britain a peremptory writ of
mandate against Insurance Commission
er E. Myron Wolfe, who has withheld
from the company a certificate authoriz
ing it to transact fire and marine insur
ance business in thiB state. Mr. Wolfe
based his refusal on the ground that the
Commercial Union had illegally trans
ferred Buits filed against the company
from the Superior court of this state to
the United States Circuit court.
Does Not Want Hill.
Berlin, March 27. The German gov
ernment has informed President Roose
velt that Dr. David J. Hill, at present
American minister at The Hague, Is
not acceptable to it as ambassador at
Berlin. Charlemagne Tower, the prea
nr nmhuRwidor. declined todav to-eith
er confirm or deny this statement.
From other sources it was learned tnat
the grounds are that Dr. Hill is not rep
resentative enough for the United States
to send to Germany.

Stato RoKUlatlon Is Uttorly Killed by
Washington. March 26. It bus ro
mitrorl n Hi-ronil (liiv's conaliloration for
men in nubile life in Washington to

thn decisions handed down by tho Su-
promo court in tho Minnesota nod

tho nation, temnorarlly chucked by tho
monov stringency of lust fall. As a re
suit of these decisionH, a brighter era
for railroad nronertv Ih dawninu.
The immediato results brought about
b these decisions are:
1. No stato. through 1U) ollicors or
itscourts, can enforce a rate law passed
by Its legislature pending tne ueitiu
merit of tho law's constitutionality by
tho Federal courts, when direct appeal
is rniulo to tho latter.
2. Tho rato laws of two r-Uites havo
been wiped out completely and uery
other state in tho union that has enact
ed rato legislation is in doubt as to
whether Its luw Is valid.
3. Tho overwhelming power of a
Federal iniunction to restrain, not tho
action of suite courts, but Individuals
from proceeding through mandamus In
tho stato courts to enforce that which
tho Federal court seeks to stay, Inn
been established by tho highest tribu
nal in tho land. And thiB Is only un
other wav of declaring that tho mwer
of a stute court is nugatory, ence tho
federal autnorlty Intorlerefl.
4. Any rato luw which charges a
stato, through its ofllcers. with tho
duty of administering it is onon to Fed
erul inquiry tho moment tho state nt

fereno Is not u contravention of tho
constitutional provision giving n tato
