New York, March 27. The mctai
bers of the Interstate commerce com
mission came to Now York today to
continue tho hearing of tho case com
monly known as tho Southern Merger.
This is tho caso brought by the
Kentucky railroad commission against
tho Atlantic Coast Line, tho Southern
Railway, the Loulsvillo & Nashville,
the Cincinnati Southern, the Cincin
nati, New Orleans and Texas Pacific,
and the Chicago, Indianapolis and
Louisville railroad companies. Tho
complaint alleges that tho defendant
lines aggregate 25,000 miles and have
an operating incomo of more than
$130,000,000; and that .1. P. Morgan
& Co. have secured practically the
controlling maangement of nil of
Afraid of Gates.
More than ordinary Interest Is man
ifested In the present hearing on ac
count of the expressed purpose of
John W. Gates to "say some things."
At tho first hearing of tho case, J.
Pierpont Morgan, in answer to ques
tions put by counsel for the Kentucky
railroad commission, said that he con
sidered Mr. Gates a "dangerous man"
in railroad finances.
George W. Perkins and others of
the 'firm of J. P. Morgan & Co made
ues of a similar expression. Their
testimony went to show that the Mor
gan activity in tho settlement follow
ing the Louisville & Nashville coup
executed by Gates was based upon
the belief that it was necessary to
the preservation ot tho financial sta
bility of tho railroads of the country
that the control ot tho Loulsvillo &
N'ashvlllu bo not left In Mr. Gates'
The present hearing Is had chiefly
at the request of Mr. Ontes who de
sires an opportunity of replying to
Mr. Morgan's statements concerning
him and he further promises to glvo
all tho inside history ot tho now fam
ous merger deal.
Gates disappointed his listeners by
r.ot fulfilling his promlsu to answer
Morgan and explain tile details of tho
merger. He apparently took keen do
light In telling how ho kept Morgan
running after him until ho secured
his own terms.
Southern Securities Company.
He testified that Morgan said they
might consider a Southern Securities
Company If tho Iltlgntion of the
Northern Securities caso was decld
ed favorably to the company. Har
rls, Gates 'partner, testified that ho
bought stock for as low as $105 and
made tho Morgan syndicate pay as
nigh as $150 for It.

FELL FROM TRAIN
HENRY BARNHART KILLED
IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA,
Telegram States That He Was Form
erly of Pendleton Stated Before
He Died That His Parents Lived in
Ashland, Or., March 27. Henry
Bnrnhart, aged 19, while stealing a
ride on a north-bound freight train,
gell off a. flat car near Gibson siding,
this side of Redding, at an early hour
Wednesday morning, and suffered in
juries from which ho died shortly
afterward. The wheels passed over
his right leg, cutting it off below tho
knee. He was taken to Redding, but
died from loss of blood beforo surgl
cal attention could be given hlra.
He said that he was bound for Pen
dleton, Or., his former home, and
where he was born, and that his pa
rents lived In San Francisco.
Tho only confirmation of the above
that can he learned from residents of
Pendleton is that Major Barnhart, for
merly Indian agent here .but now a
resident of Portland, has a son Henry
who Is now about 29 years of age, or
10 years older than the age given in
tho above dispatch. The son of the
major Is the only Henry Uarnharl
who ever lived hero of whom any
thing can be learned. One or two
parties were found who aver that
among the Indians of the name of
Barnhart there Ib at least ono iienry,
but it is very certain that had the
Injured man been an Indian the fact
would have been mentioned In the dispatch.

Plans Being Made for the Adoption of
Electricity as a Motive Power ir
Stockholm. March 27. Plans aro bo
Ing made for tho adoption of electrlel
ty as a motlvo power on the crown
tallroads of Sweden. Tho interesting
fact about tho project Is that tho es
tlmatcs have been based upon the
adoption of the system of an American
electrical engineer h. Ward Leon
ard, of New York Cltyi whoso ideas
and plans havo been taken up by one
of the great Swiss manufacturers,
and aro now being Introduced In Kur-
ope. Another interesting feature Is
the proposition to utillzo not only the
water powers, but the peat beds of
Sweden, in order to secure tho neces
sary electrical energy. Tho greatost
distance from any ono power station
to the most remote point of Its dis
tricts is 100 miles. This makes pos
sible that In caso of emergency neigh
boring stations can help each other.

A Comparison Between the Privately
Owned Roads of America and the
Public Owned Roads of Europe,
Tho terrific fact that over 70,000
people had been killed and 400.000
wounded on American railroads in the
past ten years Invites a comparison
with foreign caualitles of this sort
says tho New York World,
In tho year 1901 tho railroads of tho
United States carried 607,278,121 pus
sengors and thoso of Great Brltaiii
1.173,000,000 nearly twlco an many,
Tho American roads killed 8,445 per
sons of all kinds passengers, cm
ployecs and outsiders and wounded
63,339. Tho British roads killed 1.-
277 persons and Injured 18,375. No
less than 4,959 of tho persons killed
In this country anil 5,420 of thoso In
jured were struck by trains. It Is tho
deadly grade crossings that mako our
records so appalling. Wo kill a good
many more passengers than they do
In England, but our passengers havo
an easy tlmo compared with the un
fortunate outsiders that have to croBB
tho tracks. There wero only 55 per
sons killed and 2C injured in British
grade-crossing accidents In 1901, and
the total number of outsider suffer
ers of all kinds, Including trespassers
and suicides, was only 481 killed ana
180 hurt, against 5,458 deaths and u,
914 injuries among similar classes

department, promised Cuba thnt If
tho Cuban congress should ratify tho

ment, he would call tho United States
congress in extra session prior to Its

ed a radiogram from Minister Squires
stating thnt there wns a strong prob
ability that the Culmn congress would

plied that if such wero done It would
Invalidate the convention.
Tho state department believes that
there Is n strong foreign Inlluonco at
