The report says:
Free transportation cannot be giv
en to land or immigration agents
unless they are employes in such
sense that the carriers legally could
give them transportation.
There is no authority in law for
making lower rates to land seekera
and settlers than for other travelers.
This interpretation seems to abolluh
the home-seekers' excursion which
all lines have been running for years.
The law committee advises that
transportation cannot be Issued in
payment for advertising. It is gener
ally accepted, however, that carriers
may carry an open account with pub
lishers and that publishers may carry
an open account with carriers for ad
vertising, and these accounts can be
balanced perceptibly. The balance,
whatever it Is, must be paid In cash.
The transaction must be devoid of
previous agreement that the service
done by either party for the other
is to be paid for in any other way
than by cash.
Special reduced rates may be made
for Federal and State troops and of
ficers and employes of the United
States Geological Survey and recla

A TEST OF EYESIGHT
BURLIXCiTOV RAILROAD ENGI
NEERS ARE FORBIDDEN TO
Chicago, Sept. 2G. A drastic rule
issued by the Chicago, Burlington &
Qulncy Railway may precipitate a
strike of locomotive engineers. In
substance the recent order Is:
- No man wearing glasses will be al
lowed to run a passenger engine.
Men wearing glasses will be bar
red from the cabs of the engines In
the suburban service.
Wearers of glasses will be re
moved from all freight engines that
enter congested terminals.
That matters have reached a criti
cal stage is admitted. The men have
taken a strike vote, which was over
whelmingly In favor of a strike, and
Warren S. Stone, Grand Chief of the
Brotherhood, has telegraphed Jamer
J. Hill of the gravity of the situation.
Negotiations between the manage
ment and a committee of the engi
neers have been under way for some
time, but the officials of the roai
have refused to alter their position.
The rule affects men who have been
long years In the service.
A leave-or-die principle Is In
volved, according to the engineers.
The dust, the cinders and the action
of the air, they say, soon weaken
the eyes of an engineer. If a man
whose eyes are thus affected Is no'
allowed to resort to glasses he would
be banished from his chosen employ
ment. The railroad officials today Issued
the following statement regardlrs
the differences between the company
and its engineers:
"The only question at Issue Is tt"
adoption of some standard as to eye
sight of passenger engineers in cc
tain specified service. Even the cot"
mlttee for the men admits that thr
safety of the traveling public atiu
of co-employes requires that some
standard, tested either scientifically
r by field trials, is necessary, tr--only
difference being as to what t
shall be and where it shad apply.
The company offered to lay the nmt
ter before the Interstate Commission,
but the committee declined the prop
osition." Hero of War III and Helpless.

Havana, Sept. 26. President To

An extra session of the Congress
has been called for Friday and their
resignations will then be accepted.
Affairs are still critical.
Palma Is still in the palace, where
he will remain until his resignation
It is expected here that a procla

will be issued shortly. It will be
dated In Oyster Bay, but probably
promulgated through Secretary Taft.
The conditions on the Island are In

Practically the Cuban Government
has ceased to exist, and all that pre

President has been presented to Con
gress. Senor O'Farrell, Secretary of State
and Justice said last night there
probably would be a Government by
a commission appointed by the Am
erican Government. He mentioned
Senor Barrlero, Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court, and General Mario
Menocal as possible commissioners.
This, being the case, the only al
ternative left Is for Secretary Taft to
order the marines ashore and take
charge of the affairs of the republic
under the provisions of the Piatt
amendment. Any other course would
leave the island a prey to anarchy.
Havana, Sept. 26. Secretary Taft
and Assistant Secretary of State Ba

yesterday that they were dis
gusted with the petty methods of the
Government leaders here and the
American commissioners admitted
that they had practically abandoned
hope of bringing peace from the tur
