Radical Order of Texas Classes Con
sumption With bmtbpOK.
Washington, Juno 2C. Federal
olUclaln having to do with tho regula
tion ami control of tho public health
with exerclned today to learn that
the public health officials of Texas
will soon Usui; a proclamation of per
manent (j ii n ro n 1 1 no ti g;il nut nil per
sons affected with tho advanced
stages of t uberculosln. Tho procla
mation will place tuberculosis In the
same category with small pox and
yellow fever, according to report, and
In being nniiod beeausij of tho In
creaned Immigration of tuberculosis
patients to tho dry climate of arid
It was sold hero that under the
Federal statutes tuberculosis Is not a
uuarsntliiiiblo disease, cither under
the maritime or Interstate Immigra
tion law, but Immigrants can now be
kept out of tho 1,'nited Htaten when
afflicted with tuberculosis, under the
new Immlgrntlon law. The opinion
wan given that It may bo dlfllcult to
sustain such a quarantine before tho
Hiipriiue Court under tho provision
of the constitution guaranteeing the
right of every citizen of the I'nlted
.States to go from one statu to an
ot her.
In each rase tho state authorities
will be compelled to prove absolutely
that the person denied entrance to
Texan is suffering from tuberculosis
In the advanced stage, and the cost
of such a quarantine will be largo.
On the question of public policy In
volved In such a quarantine no opin
ion of ofllclals could be obtained for
publication, but It Is known to be
the opinion of some of tho Individual
experts that the study of tuberculosis
has progressed so far that a state of
quarantine Is unnecessary and that
Immigration of this kind might be
treated at tuberculosis colonies If
protective steps are necessary.
Tho Issue rained In Texas has
never been heard of before by Fed
eral officials, although Colorado a
few yearn ago agitated a somewhat
similar step.

secured promises of relinquishments
of soldiers In case the soldiers were
lucky enough to draw a number, tho
Idea being to secure purchasers for
the soldiers' rkhts, nnd, it was
charged, defrauding the government
by cutting out bona fide entry.

fied that there is a similar scheme In
process of formation for the open

gation under the Huntley project in

Lower Rate on Alcohol,
Washington, June 27. A curious
case wan. filed with the Interstate
Commerce Commission today by the
Railroad Commission of the State of
Oregon ngalnst the Northwestern
and llurlington Railways and sev
eral other lines. It appears that the
defendant lines charge the same rates
upon tho denatured alcohol from
Chicago to North Pacific terminal

cohol. Hy reason of the high freight
rates the price of denatured alcohol
In Oregon is greatly Increased, as it
costs from 12 cents to 18 cents a
gallon to transport It.

Nothing to Be Gained by Inve'tiga

I I I I I... ,. T 1
I y iiriiiiigion, .iiiiio i.j. iiieie are
renMofis for Iwlieving that the invcMtigH

I he 3,000,000 acre of land remaining
of the grant to the Oregon A California
liailroad company. In plain language,
thorn in strorifg suBplcion that thin in
vestigation in a fsree and that it is not
going to K'oiriplish what was intended.
Unless indications are incorrect, some
Ixidy has injected a joker into this pro
ceeding. The identity of the person
who in standing between the jieople of
Oregon and the Southern Pacific rail
road ban riot yet been disclosed, but he
mu-t be high up in official circles.
In the first place it is contended by
men who have made a special etudy of
this quet-tion that there in nothing to
investigate in Oreg'n. All the records,
all the laws, and all the fact behind
the grant are on file in Washington
mid the determination of the beet
method of proceodure iiiuct be based on
the law and on the words. If, there
fore, tho department of justice in to
crack thin nut, it mui-t make its inves
tigations here in Washington and not
in Orfgon. The lawn maLing the grant
are on file in the State department.
The debate preceiling this legislation
are on file at the capitol, and from
these records may be gathered the in
ti lit of the men who secured the legis
lation, hi 1 mi la r information may be
triil In-led from reports on the various
bills, and all these reports are of re
cord here and not in Oregon.
Hut what is still moie important, all
the papers that jiased letween the gov
ernment and the railroad company that
secured the grant are of record in the
Interior department in thin city and
cannot be found in Oregon.

Hostilities With United States Not
Dreamed of by Japanese.
Toklo, Juno 23. Public excite
ment over tho American question has
almost passed away, but agitation In
still gwlng on. It is mostly tho work
of tho politicians of tho opposition,
who are employing tho question as a
weapon of attack upon tho Ministry.
Tho Progressives and a coterie of
politicians called the "Daldo Club,"
will likely Join hands In a combined
attack on the Ministry over the
American question, their principal
aim being to strengthen their respec
tive positions in the corning election
of local assemblies and also in the
general election next year.
Their principal watchword Is the
diplomatic Irnpotency of tho SalonJI
Cabinet, which has resulted, they
say, In suffering to compatriots In
America and In inability to receive
treatment worthy of the subjects of
a first-class power.
It is difficult to foretell how far
they can succeed In stlrrlog up tho
public, but whatever attempts are
made in the way of agitation, actual
hostilities with the United States are
not even dreamed of. The war talk
In some of the American press is
totally Ignored here.
Fast Passenger Crashes Into Rear of
Work Train With Fatal Results.
Hartford, Co'.n., June 23. Six
workmen were killed and 40 were
Injured when a passenger train on
the Highland division of the New
York, New Haven & Hartford Rail
road crashed Into the rear of a work
train that was backing Into the city
from New Britain Saturday night, at
the Slgourney street crossing. Of
the Injured, two probably will die.
In one Instance, It took an hour
and a half to rescue a workman, who
was pinned beneath the trucks. His
head was hanging down backward
and he suffered severely, but the res
cuers encouraged him while doctors
reached between the framework
which held him a prisoner and
treated the wounds on his face and
TheYe are three unofficial versions
of the cause of the wreck. One Is
that the passenger train from New
Britain went out on a wrong track.
The second Is that the work train
had the right of way until 7 o'clock
and should have had a clear track,
that the passenger train was ahead
of time at the time. The third is
that the work train opened a switch
and failed to close it.

were expected to go to work only
after the present troubles at the Bay
City were over. The hands of most
of the men indicated that they were
not laborers.

Assistant Counsel Abbott, of the
United Railroads; Vice-President
Glass, of the Pacific States Tele
phone & Telegraph Company, and
Mayor Kugene E. Schmitz, through,
their attorneys, made determined ef
forts to have Superior Judge Lawler
set aside the Indictments against
them on grounds of technical errors.
After to sessions of court had been
consumed in the presentation of evi
dence In support of their conten
tions, the hearing was adjourned un
til 2 o'clock this afternoon, when ar
guments will be presented and au
thorities submitted.
Schmitz attorney withdrew from
the District Court of Appeals his pe
tition for admittanie to bail through
writ of habeas corpus, and gave the
explanation that technical omissions
In the document necessitated Its re
framlng. It was said that a new pe
tition will be filed.
During the hearing Messrs. Coo
grin and Moore amended the Joint
motion to set aside the Indictments
on grounds which, they declare, es
tablish firmly the illegality of the
present grand jury and the invalidity
of every act and indictment by that
body performed and returned.
One of the contentions of the de
fense is that the name of B. P.
Oliver, the foreman, wa3 twice drawn
from the box. The attorneys for the
Indicted officials allege that Mr.
Oliver's name was Improperly re
turned to the box after It had once
been drawn by Assistant District At
torneys Heney and Harrison without
auf rity from the court. Replying
to this charge, Mr. Heney angrily de
clared that Judge Dunne had given
the necessary authority by nodding
his head. Judge Lawior refused to
rule in the matter until the testi
mony of Judge Dunne himself can
be secured. He i3 absent from the
city on his vacation.
Statement to Jury in Defense of Hay
wood Is Weak Affair.
Boise, Idaho, June 25. Clarence
S. Darrow's opening statement to the
jury in the Haywood case yesterday
wa3 a disappointment. Like the
cross-examination of Orchard by E.
F. Richardson, It seemed to lack pur
pose, and those, who expected a
strong and plausible line of defense
failed to find their expectations real
ized. Mr. Darrow talked three and a half
hours, but, beyond entering some de
nials and making some charges, he
accomplished very little, while his
effort made a ba4 impression every
where. He made the dual mistake
of admitting what could not be ex
plained and offering diaphanous ex
planations of those things which he
declared the defense ready to prove
in refutation of testimony brought
out by the state.
At times he dropped Into stump
oratory to relieve the monotony, as
when he launched into laudation of
the Federation, when he attacked the
mining companies and when he boil
ed over with well-simulated indigna
tion at the work of the Pinkerton
agency. ,In his attack on the mining
companies, he sought to make it ap
pear that these were oppressors of
the miners until the Federation came
along and humbled them Into the
dust, compelling them to give their
men enough to eat and afford them
proper hospital accommodations
when ill. To those who know some
thing of the provision made for
miners In practically all camps
where metalliferous mining 13 con
ducted, this all sounded very cheap.
