What a Practical Trader Says of
the Inter-State Commerce Law.
ITS ALLEGED INEFFECTIVENESS,
Ko More Lies Against It Than as to Stat
utes Against Burglary, Etc.
SUGGESTIONS AS TO APFLICATIOX
Much has been said and written pro and
con regarding the inter-State commerce law,
but while the doctrinaires have had full
swing, the men who are vitally interested
hare been heard to but a limited extent,
and the following from Mr. John Hood,
whose experience of the law has been pric
tical, will be of interest. In answer to
Eome queries, Mr. Hood replied:
You have had the say of the commissioners
and many railroad officers, therefore, I fear it
would he presumption in me to make any
Statements or suggestions that would be edify
ing to your readers. The opinion of most of
tbose who have spoken would indicate that the
law is here to stay. Many have much fault to
find with the restrictions it imposes, and some
would be clad to see it repealed. They say it
gives water routes some advantages because
these rates are not regulated by law, and that
it drives traffic throush Canada; and some
roads can pet around the restrictions by classi
fication and others by overloading and under
billing, and some make secret cut rates to get
freight, and others depreciate the value of
Stocks in the interest of stock gamblinc, and
others say the result of the law will be to build
up large shippers and certain commercial cen
ters, etc. Therefore they reason that the
country would be better off if the law were
Repealed, altbouch it was to correct these
abuses the law was enacted.
'SUCH OBJECTIONS AITLY TO ALL LAWS.
To repeal the law because it is violated
wonld be about as sensible as to repeal all laws
relating to highway robbery and burglary be
cause thej are violated every day. The law Is
intended to prevent a favored few from increas
ing their wsalth at the expense of the many,
and would do so if executed. Hon. Franklin
1J. Gowcn estimated the amount thus secured
at about SIOQ.000,000 annually. Of course, that
amount is taken off the patrons of the rail
roads and the stockholders without giving any
There are several important amendments
pending now before Congress which may cor
rect some of the abuses complained of, as the
law was an experiment and time has developed
what amendments are a necessity.
In regard to classification, the commissioners
could suggest the proper remedies lor that,
and thoe who f hip via the Canadian route to
evade the lawshould be made to pay duty when
their goods are landed on American territory.
The present system of posting rates might be
improved on to correct such rate-cutting
by requiring common carriers to post
notice of all reductiojs in rates at least five
days before they take effect, and it might be
well to require them to have a sign board in
every freight and passenger office from the
f:eneral offices down to the receiving and de
iveringofhVes and platforms, including every
nation on their line. On the sign board hould
be printed in large letters, "Freight Kates,"'
and on the same should hang the pamphlets
containing the classification and rates, and
when a change is to be made a poster should
be placed on the same giving notice when all
lebanges are to be made in large type, not less
an size than three-inch letters as follows. Kay
winter rates are to be advanced De
cember 1, post as follohs: "Rates
will advance on December 1," or sav
April 1. Rates will be reduced April 5." With
buch notice secret rate cutting would be haz
ardous, even to tho-e who change rates to influ
ence the value of stocks. The law should stip
ulate that no advance in any calendar jear
shall exceed 20 per cent above the lowest rate
of the same jear. Thus if a railway company
would for any cause name 15c for 100 pounds on
fcixth class freight and o'her clashes proportion
ately lower between Chicago and New York, it
coul'd not advance the same above 18c per 100
on sixth class until the following January.
"With that provision stockholders and bond
holders v ould be more careful in selecting offi
cers to manage tbe.r property.
HOW TO MAKK IT EFFECTIVE.
The maximum penalty is now $5,000, and the
lowest should be 1,000, and one-half of all fines
hhould go to the prosecutor, provided he is the
injured party. Such persons would be
public benefactors. It involves so much ex
pense and vexation for an individual to prose
cute a railroad company that he is entitled to
half the flue. All lawsuits are costly and vex
atious to indhiduals. but corporations and
their attorneys appear to enjoy them as a
luxury, and generally prolong the contest as
long as they can, and why should there not be
u limit to the time all cases that are entered
under the law should be ended?
In regard to overloading and underbilhng
provisions should be made to weigh and re
ceipt for all goods shipped when it is practica
ble to do so. andlelier the same amount at
destination, that w ould correct the overloading
and underlining dodge.
THE STATES MUST CO-OPERATE.
To enjoy the full benefits of the law regulat
ing railroad traffic it will be necessary to have
State laws in all the States in harmony with
the inter-State law. home of the States have
laws regulating State traffic, ethers -have not.
The Constitution of Pennsylvania covers the
ground, but there are no penalties, and it has
been impossible to get a law passed by our
legislature to enforce that provision of our
organic law, although every member takes an
oath to enforce by appropriate legislation the
provisions of this article. Why they disre
gard thciroaths and the wishes of their con
stituents is a mystery to many people.
numeuiiuuiiiiiiudu umciais tiau iu nave
the section prohibiting pooling repealed, but
the experience shipper had with the old pool
that controlled 57 railroads extending Iro.u
Maine to the Mississippi river, admonishes
them that a railroad pool means no competi
tion and very arbitrary and unjust decrees,
which arc more to be dreaded than the Stand
ard Oil Company Trust.
DOESN'T SWALLOW EVERYTHING.
Mr. Hood shruggea his shoulders when some
of the pleas in abatement made by railway
companies were rehearsed, and intimated that
lie had been long enough in business and had
Been enough of discrimination to know that the
specific gravity of most of the excuses was
lighter than the imponderable ether supposed
to mi tue space ueiween our aimo-pucie ana
that of the celestial bodies that dot the range
of vision. He incidentally referred to the cases
of individuals and companies in tim;s past
whom he bad known to be favored and who
pew immensely rich, while men with as much
business tact and industry had hard work to
make more than a meager living. Mr. Hood
thinks that spacious pleadings will not win

business with railroad companies for 20 or 25

Hall was rearrested in a cabinet in her home,
12 South Diamond street, yesterday after
noon, under striking circumstances. She
was supposed to be in Kansas, whither she had
fled after indictment In September for keeping
a disorderly and unlicensed liquor selling
house. She had been under $2,000 bail, how
ever. Her bondsman, a prominent Alleghenian,
was notified a few days ago of his liability. In
order to save himself from loss, however, he
took legal steps to levy on the Hall woman's

The latter was observed to slyly ascend the
stairs (secretly, as she supposed); and, entering
a fine room, she locked a cupboard or cabinet
door and pocketed the key. The officers took
this as indication that silver or jewels had been
there concealed. When finally they asked for

a ery painful brcakingout of the skin. We called
in a physician, who treated him. for about four
weeks. The child received little or no good
from tho treatment, as the breaking out, sap
posed by tbe physician to be hives in an aggra

more and more distressing. We were frequently
obliged to get up in tbe night and rub him with

six had attempted to cure him, all alike failing,

To compare KAUFMANNS' with other clothiers, when liber
ality is the subject, would be like placing a tallow candle along
side of the brilliant electric light Comparison is simply out
of the question. Indeed, if liberality is a virtue, then KAUF
MANNS' are possesed of this virtue to the highest degree. To
say that for every cent given away by others, KAUFMANNS'
give a dollar, would be a fair estimate This is true, and don't
you be misled by noisy actions of' certain clothiers. They may
shout a hundred times louder than KAUFMANNS', but the
latter will give you a hundred times more than the shouters.
Take KAUFMANNS' present
For instance. This matchless sale, as its name implies, means
nothing more or less than the presentation to each customer of
33 1-3 per cent of the amount of his purchase. Who can cite
a parallel to this striking liberality ? Who can name another
house that actually gives away one-third of its sales ? Who can
point out another concern that has ever had the pluck and
nerve to go through its stock and mark down every garment a
" full 33 1-3 per cent ?
KADFMANNS' DID IT
And Kanfmanns' Only !
