THE CASE OF BROWN.
An Issue That Is Important as Relating
to the Interstate Law.
Washington, - Nov. 12. Two weeks
ago the Supreme court made an order
fixing for the first Monday In March
the hearing of the case of Theodore f.
Brown, vs. John AV. Walker, United
States- marshal for the western dis
trict of Pennsylvania. Today the or
der was modified, by advancing the case
two months, and it will be argued
In January, after the cases already set
down for hearing on the first Monday
of that month. This la the case coming
up from the circuit court for the west
ern district of Pennsylvania, Involving
the validity of the amendment to the
Interstate commerce law, projecting
from punishment person who testify
as to violations of the law, although
they themselves may be connected with
the violation. Brown Is auditor of a
railroad and he refused to testify before
the grand Jury concerning certain al
leged violations of the law, planting
himself upon the constitutional protec
tion .to persons called upon to testi
fy . when to do so would Incriminate
themselves. He was committed to the
custody of the marshal for contempt
of court, having persisted In his re
fusal to testify after being warned by
the Judge. He sued for his release on
a writ of habeas corpus, but the cir
cuit Judge refused to discharge him,
holding that he was fully protected by
the provisions of the law referred to.
He then appealed to the Supreme court
of the United States.
The case Is considered to be one of
the most important, as far as It relates
to the Interstate law, which the court
has ever been called upon to consider,
for if the amendment to .the. law under
which it arises shall be held to be Inop
erative, it Is conceded that the penal
ties Imposed by the law for secret rate
cutting by rebate or otherwise cannot
be enforced. .

CAINE'S PLEA FOR FICTION.
Says th Novelist Should Paint th World
as 11 Finds It.
Philadelphia, Nov. 12. The British
novelist. Hall Calne, made a notable
speech before a large audience this
evening In the Baptist Temple. He was
Introduced by Rev. Dr. Russell H. Con
well aa a moral teacher. Mr. Calne said
not many years ago no novelist waa
considered a moral teacher. He then
"I want to stand here for the twin
angels of freedom and truth and plead
for the completer liberty of the drama
and fiction. Some may say they have
already too much license. It is true
that the novelist or dramatist who Is
without conscience is a llterarv anar
chist who goes about armed with dyna
mite mat might be called damnation;"
Mr. calne referred to Hawthorne's
"Scarlet Letter" as a f reat moral book.
He said Action Is not mere idle fancy
and is worthy of serious thought and
attention. He took the ground that the
novelist should have the license and
liberty to paint the world as he finds it,
and not to smooth It over.
