PROVISIONS OF BILL
Power of Interstate Commission
Over Railroads Enlarged,
PENALTIES HADE HOST SEVERE
Rnte Bill as Passed by Senato
Allows Interstato Board
to Fix Rates.
fEWashington.'May 19. The principal
purpose ol the railroad rate bill passed
yesterday is to penult the Interstate
Commerce commission to fix rates. Tho
provision conferring this authority is
found In the fourth section, which
amends section 15 of the interstate
commerce law so as to accomplish this
result. This section directs the com
mission to investigate complaints of
unjust and unreasonable charges on the
part of common carriers In the trans
portation of persons or property, or of
regulations or practices affecting such
charges. It also authorises an inquiry
as to whether the rates or practices are
"unjustly discriminatory or unduly
preferential or piejudlclal, or otherwise
in violation of the act," and, In case
any of these conditions are found to
exist, the commission is empowered
to determine and prescribe what will
be the just and reasonable maximum
rate, and what regulation or practice is
just, reasonable and fair.
Further, authority is given the com
mission to enforce its orders, and they
are to go into effect within SO days and
continue in force for two years unless
suspended, modified or set aside by the
commission or by a court of competent
A penalty of $5,000 for each offense
In disobedience of the order is impoeed,
and the penalty Is to accumulato at the
rate of $5,000 a day in case of continu
ous violation. Orders other than thoee
for money payments are to be enforced
by the federal courts through writs of
mandamus or injunction, and, in case
of appeal to the supreme court, these
cases are to be given preference over
all others exceptthoee of a criminal
The bill was amended by the senate
so as to give the United States circuit
courts jurisdiction to entertain suits
brought to annul or change the orders
of the commission and to provide
against the granting of interlocutory
decrees without hearing and making
appeals from such orders direct to the
There are no changes In the law rel
ative to the reports to bo required of
common carriers, and a penalty of
$100 a day Is impoeed for failnre to
comply with the report requirement.
The commission is given access to the
accounts of the companies affected by
the act, but examiners are forbidden,
under psnalty of heavy fine and long
imprisonment, to divulge the facts
ascertained. A fino of $500 for each
failure to keep proper accounts is pro
vided. TRANSIT TUBES FLATTENED.

ruys a bulletin issued by the depart
ment of Commerce and Labor. By the

merce," explains the bulletin, Is meant

countries of the world from which sta
tistical trade reports are available.

DANGER OF QUAKES.
Ono of Chief Reasons forlCommltteo
Favoring Ssa Level Canal.
Washington, May 18. That the
earthquake, that destroyed San Francis
co helped itelermino mo voio or too
connto committee on interoceanic canals
in favor of a sea level type Is apparent
from tho fact that a feature of tho ma
jority report is a discussion of the
effect earthquakes might havo on locks
and dams. Tho majority report in
favor of a sea level canal was submitted
today by Senator Klttredge.
The report says that the canal struc
tures would bo exposed to Injury by
eartnqnakes. particularly tho locks at
Gatun. It tho lock walls should bo
moved, leakage would result and tho
gates would be useless. In case of
fracture of locks, months or years
might be required for repairs, nd
meanwhile traffic would be interrupted.
It Is maintained that the dam at
Gamboa proposed by the majority of
the board of consulting engineers, is
not liable to injury by earthquakes, for
it will be built on a solid rock founda
tion, reinforced with strong walls and
buttressed at each end with walls of
rock. Nor are the side slopes of the
Culebra cut likely to be disturbed,
but an earth dam on an alluvial base
might bo cracked, draining the lock
and ruining the canal. The committee
"At San Francisco, where the water
pipes were broken, the disaster was
greatly augmented by this cause, for
the water could not be held In the
pipes and directed on the llames. What
would happen to the aquednct, con
duits, pipes and valves, buried in the
concrete walls, nsed for filling and
emptying the locks, cannot be well
It is stated that ships of all classes
could be passed through the se level
canal In 8 Si hours less than the time
that would be consumed In passing
ships through locks alone. The cost of
annual maintenance is estimated at
$1,840,000 for the sea level and $2,
330,000 for the lock type. A sea level
canal free from all obetarlee could pass
100 warships in less than a day. Naval
commanders and commercial shipmas
ters oppose locks.
The majority argues that an enemy
could destroy a lock canal much easier
than a sea level canal with explosives.
Tho cost of a sea level canal Is estimat
ed at $250,000,000, while the total cost
of the lock canal would be at least
$190,000,000, and the cost of trans
forming the latter into a sea level canal
would be $200,000,000. The conclu
sion of the majority is "that the sea
level canal can be realized in 10 or 12
years at a cost not exceeding $60,000,-
000 above that required by the con
struction of the multllock canal pro
posed by the minority."

tween 20 and 25 projects as "aids to

Spring Produces Clams.
Albany Water from a spring flowing
from a solid sandstone hill, three miles
northeast of Lebanon, produces fresh
srater clams. Though there are no
clams In the spring, and, so far as
known, none that its water could come
In contact with in any way, yet the
water, when poured Into a trough, pro
duces clams, which grow to ordinary
site. Water flows from solid rock
through an iron pipe, about 45 yards,
into a watering trough. In this trough
the clams develop. The trough has
been frequently cleaned, but fresh wa
ter chins always developed In it again.
