Freight Rebates Rscsivt the Executive
Washington, Dec. 21. The president
discussed today with several callers
the proposed legislation covering the
question of freight rebates on the var
ious railroads, and the advisability of
empowering the Interstate commerce
commission to adjust freight rates
' where the same are found to be ex
cessive and onerous, especially as re
gard freight terminals.
The president Is anxious that legls
lation in the interests of shippers be
enacted at the earliest possible date.
It was stated today that one of the
president's callers is assured that At
torney General Moody Is engaged In
the preparation of a bill that substan
tially embodies the views of the administration.
Hotel of the First Class Is the Deaidtr

A meeting of the "Hotel Committee"
whs held lust evenln and O. V
Lounsberry was appointed to Inter
view the financial Interests of the town
and make an effort to Interest them In
a project that has the best interest or
all In the city at stake.
The objection has been urged that a
first-class hotel would Infringe on the
business of the hotels already running;
also, that It would tend to deplete the
revenue of the various lodging houses,
but this, as shown. In the experience
of other cities. Is a short-sighted policy
that needs paternal teaching. A first-
class hotel takes Its own risks, the
same as a boarding or rooming house
takes them, and, for the class that
wants a first-class hotel, and will ad
vertise the city because of one, and no
better advertisers than drummers ex
ist, the first-class hotel Is a necessity
and an Improvement the far-sighted
men of the city want to see established
at the earliest ostble. moment.
The project, as put forth', has In con
templation a hotel to cost In the neigh-
jborhood of $100,000, to be up to date In
all Its appointments and such as will
be advertised abroad as a place where
those seeking rest domicile during
business, or a place to stay during the
regattas, etc., is nil that can be asked.
The matter of selection of site for
the hotel. It is the sense of the meet
tng, should be left to those who sub
scribe to the stock of the concern. It
Is not understood that the men who
have "axes to grind" will In the Inter
est of the city, forgo the grinding In
order that those who come to the city
may not find a contention Instead of a
In the event of the establishment of
a first-class hostelry, It Is certain that
Astoria, Instead of being "the Jumplng-
ofT place" will be known as a city
i where accommodations to suit the fas
Uidlous ran be had.
A number of the wealthier men of
the city have already In a measure
pledged themselves to contribute to the
purchase of stock In the enterprise
and the consummation of the long de
sired end now seems In sight.

Soldiers Up Against It for Their Small
Columbus, Dec. 21. The executive
committee of the American Anti-Saloon
League met here today and de
termined to make a fight for the re
tention of the anti-canteen law. It was
also held that the fact of the prohibi
tory clause In the legislation for the
Indian territory should entitle the ter
ritory to statehood.
It was also recommended that the
passage of the Hepburn-Dolllwr bill
to prevent the shipment of liquor into
territories be urged.
Business in the Courts Mill Grinds But
The circuit court convened yester
day as usual, with Judge McBrlde pre
siding, but the grIM of the "mills of
the Gods ground slowly, and they
gound exceedingly small." .
In the case of O. W. Morton and
John Flshman against Robert Burch a
publication of summons .was ordered.
In the case of the O. R. & N. Co.
against the Masonic Building & Loan
Association, the Injunction was dis
solved. This was the case wherein
the plaintiffs sought to establish pos
session of a lot that was In conten
tion over tide water.
