BACK TO ' FIRST , PRINCIPLES.
HIS COUNTRT saw la a federal
court at Chicago last Saturday
. a memorable spectacle. -The
- world's premier :z ot - finance
stood at the bar of Justice.. .As they
fashioned at Philadelphia, th fathers
planned for the courts to be the
meeting plaeo of the high and low.
The goddess with-aighUess eyes and
balances. In hand has always been
typical of their Idea of Justice. In
expected that law was to be tor one
Individual or class, and not tor an
other. '- "Eaual rights for - all. and
special privileges for none" was their
theory. . . . .... .' . '
After many years of lapse the
spirit of the constitutional conven
tion of 17 89 . was revivified in the
Chicago court Saturday. John D.
Rockefeller, the foremost financier
of. all timewas ab bar. H is rich
enough to buy a kingdom or own an
emplrerA million" to him to as a
dollar to , most ' men. . With one
press of th button he could plunge
th world's financial arrangements
Into convulsions. He waa In the court
ostensibly as a witness, but In real
ity, a: defendant So was the pov
erty blown criminal who sat a few
feet away. It was elbow to elbow,
and both trembled In that leveling
presence; It was ' a scene closely
approximating the idea typified by
the blind goddess with her balances.
It was a golden bow ot promise that,
after all these years, we are nearing
again the tdeaa of the fathers. V
But, it was marred la one spot.
The poverty ridden criminal, whose
family la without support, was' sent
to the penitentiary.. The premier of
finance, whose business life Is strewn
with skeletons ot wrecked careers
and ' destroyjed,.; ; arerprises - that
crossed his path, was not sent to
prison and will not be. r Wood row
Wilson says h should be. So does
Senator Cullom. 8o does the coun
try. And . so would, the, fathers.
RAILROADS AND THE
- . , LAW.
THE KATE law, as It to called,
went Into effect, only a little
JL - over tea months ago, and al
ready a considerable number of
case arising under It have been de
cided, a large portion of them by the
railroads yielding to demt-nds made
without trial. ' la a few cases the
commission bas decided In favor of
the railroad , companies. The petro
leum cases were among the more Im
portant ones which were dismissed
after the railroads had redueed their
rates on tank oil cars to the Pacific
coast. Formerly the rate from Penn
sylvania and Ohio points to this coast
was from 10 to 98 cents a hundred
pounds, and the Standard Oil rate
from Chicago , common points was
71 'cents, the railroads charging
$105 for the return of tank cars,
but before the eases were tried the
railroads .- abolished this return
charge aad made a throu gh rate of
tO cents from all Chicago, Ohio and
Pennsylvania points. ;
. Of greater Interest and importance
to a decision" by th commission In
regard to' rates oa cotton and cotton
products from th south to Paclfio
coat port, holding that hlghr rates
to these ports than to New England
points wer Justifiable, . th commis
sion saying:- "Th conditions exist
ing a, the two loeaiitlgg are dissim
ilar.' .The New England mills, which
suffer by the competition ot the more
favorably - situated southern . mills
from the standpoint of production,
ar entitled to such advantage in
rates as they have from being sit
uated at points closer to ports where
cheap water competition has been es
tablished to th Paclfio coaat points
of consumption." '
. It may. be Inferred from this a a
general proposition that th commis
sion doe not Intend to Interfere with
the existing general arrangement of
rates between different section of
It seems that the law is working
rather well so far, and la not 'M11
inimical to honest railroading. --A
Commissioner Prouty recently said
Scores of Questions have besn raised
under the new law os which th rail
roads mlaht have demanded a declalon
by the courts before obeying- the orders
of the commission, or accepting It con
struction of th lew. but in every la
ctone they have promptly and cheer
fully coo oersted with tb commission.
On the other hand, the commission has
tried to avoid lmpolnr unnecessary
hardships oa the railroad In meet-
ins; th new conditions. , It 1 demon
strated beyond doubt that th railroads
ar In hearty sympathy with th In
terstate commerce law, and that rebate
and fctndred J. evils a r practically
abolished. Th treat majority of rail
road official ar honest , and fair-
minded, but they hv been living; un
der a cloud raised by 'unscrupulous and
dishonest' man. Todsy every railroad
Official can follow his - inclination to
treat all hlppr alike; without fear
that some official of a competing' road
will secretly pay. rebate In on form
another.. Th Jaw la designed 'to

The case against- Barney Oldfleld
was dismissed because there was "no
sufficient- evidence to justify prose
cution." Of course there wasn't.
Ther-was-no 'excuse-for" hlrarre8ttt,
In the first Instance and there never
was any evidence that Justified either
the complaint or the warrant. It
was simply a case of persecution,
resorted to in order to back up an
extravagant and sensational - news
paper story. However disappointing
that race meet may have been, there
was nothing to Justify-a charge of
fraud against Oldtleld. He is en

"Cooklnr ought to be a nice an ac
