DISCUSS RATE LAW
Railroad Men and Shippers Urge
Claims Before Commission.
REBELS ARE GAINING.
MORE TIME TO FILE TARIFFS
Railroad Men Object to Change In
Export and Import Rates
Shippers Favor It.
Washington, Aug. 30. To discuss
certain phases of the railroad rate law,
which is now in effect, thoro was a
conference which lasted the greater
part of tho day, between the members
of the Interstate Commerce commission
and representatives of the railroads and
shippers of the country. Tho railroad
officials present numbered 34, among
whom were: Vico President Caldwell,
of the Delaware, Lackawanna A West
ern; Vice President Gamer, of the New
York Central, Counsel Massey, of the
Pennsylvania, and General Counsel
Clardy, of the Missouri Pacific, while
F. Bentley, of Chicago, J. A. Farley,
of Dallas, Tex., and James Maynard,
of Knoxville, Tenn, were among the
speakers for the shippers. The Amer
ican Shippers' association and the Illi
nois Manufacturers' association were
The railroad representatives uni
formly gave assurance of their inten
tion to comply fully with the new law,
but presented their views as to the
operation of certain provisions, among L Meanwhllo
tne points uiged being extension of
time in which carriers may file their
tariffs with tho commission; continu
ance of the present method of posting
tariffs; objection to any change in ex
port and import rates pending a full
hearing, and the absolute concurrence
of all the carriers interested before the
establishment of joint rates.
The shippers' representatives urged
the protection of their interests, par
ticularly against tne railroads shifting
classifications so as to put up rates.
STRIKEBREAKERS EN ROUTE.
Four Trains of Armed Men Are Now
Rushing to San Francisco.
New York, Aug. 30. Another spe
cial train loaded with strike breakers
was started for Ban Francisco last night
by James Farley, who has been em
ployed to put an end to the big street
railroad strike in the Golden Gate city.
Three Farley trains are now trying to
cross the continent in four days, saving
a day on the average passenger sched

City tonight, and still another may
leave tomorrow night.

rounds of cartridges have been
ordered for the men, 1,000 revolvers of

or high wages has been selected.

Cabanas Taken by Guorrera and Santa
Clara Is In Danger.
Havana, Aug. 31. Tho surrender
of some of the uioro vigorous insurgent
leaders in tho provinces of Matansas
and Santa Clara, and tho coming In of
a scattering few insurgents In response-
to tne government's oner of amnesty,
is vastly more than offset by the In.
surge nt sontiment looking stronger
dally in tho country districts of the
provinces of Havana, Pinar del Rio
and Santa Clara, which is now report
ed to be gaining headway in Santiago,
from which province, however, there
are as yet no reports of organised
The testimony of persons arriving
here from tho country is unanimous to
tho effect that the people are restless
and becoming more and more excited.
Tho talk of tho towns is of these who
have gono out to loin the insurgents
and the chances of winning agAiust the
government. There aro grave doubts
of the loyalty of tho recruits, especially
of negro recruits, who are suspected iu
many quarters of a willingness to Join
the other side, with nhich many of
their peoplo are 'dent'fird.
Tho undeniable evidence of the
growth of insurrectionist sentiment is
causing increasing doubt as to whether
the government will, after all, be able
to cope promptly and successfully with
the movement, and there is much dis
cussion of the possibilities of a peaceful
settlement. Interest centers in a pro
jected meeting of Cuban veterans and
other prominent men to consider the
question of approaching Pino Guerrera
and other insurgent leaders of the Lib
eral party and members of the gov
ernment, with a view to ascertaining
whether the difficulty cannot be settled
through some compromise.

across the mountains to the north coast,

Society People's Opium Den.
Chicago, Aug. 30. A sumptuously
furnished opium den, which both men
and women in fashionable Chicago so
ciety are said to have frequented, was
raided today by detectives at 2828 Cal
umet avenue. The den was found to
consist of an entire fiat of six rooms on
the third floor, furnished and equipped
throughout in Oriental hangings and
most costly furniture. Dozens of be
jeweled and silvei mounted opium

fiscated. onr persons were arrested.
About a dozen others escaped through

How Government Inspectors Will In
dicate What is Good,
Washington, Aug. 31. Owing to the
new meat inspection law, the number
ol Inspectors' labels used will be more
than doubled. Already the Agricul
tural department has contracted to
supply 10,000 for the month of Sep
tember, and after the law becomes
effective this number will be increased
The tag is about one and ono-nuarter
inches square. It is a thin sheet of
gelatine, with a few threads running on
it. There is printed in blue letter a
legend like this: "United States. In
spected. Passed 207." The number
at the end is that of the abattoir In
spector, who simply slaps the little tag
on a piece of meat and the heat and
moisture of the freshly-killed meat
makes it stick. In a short time the
gelatine dissolves, the linen threads
rub off, and there is left nothing but
the print of thote blue letters in the
meat. It cannot be removed, except by
cutting. It Is absolutely harmless.
Grazing Tax Law Is Declared To
8a1em The Oregon Supreme court
has declared the grazing tax law of 1005
unconstitutional. The decision will
have no very far reaching effect, for it
has not been generally enforced or ob
served. A test case was brought up
from Umatilla county, with the result
that thero is one more ray of light cast
upon the problems of tax legislation In
Oregon. The decision will likely be ol
advantage in some respects to the legis
lature of 1007, which will give particu
lar attention to the enactment of tax
Briefly stated, the 1005 statute wai
declared void because it is a revenue
tax law and not a lirense law. It
possessed the language and elements
of a tax law and not of a license law.
The act provided that a tax of 20 cents
a head shall be paid upon all sheep
owned by non-residents and brought
into this state for pasturage.

"I have noticed," continued Mr.
Taylor, "that millers and warehouse
men are pretty anxious to get posses

Inducements to get farmers to store

is now drafting plans to build a reser

have an average depth of 35 feet, and
use the entire surplus water of the
Platte river. Heretofore, It has been
estimated that 38,115,000,000 cubic
feet of water was wasted yearly in the
Platte river, water which, if nroDerlv
