Government Is Beaten on
Commodities Clause.
Contention of United States That It
Applies to Ownership of Stock
Is Declared Un
tenable. Washington, May 4. It has been
ninny a ilny since a decision of the su
preme court of the United States has
been received with so much Interest
as was manifested In the decision of
that court lu what nro known as the
"commodities clause" cases, affecting
the anthracite coal carrying railroads.
These cases had been decided by the
United States circuit court for the
eastern district of Pennsylvania fa
vorably to the railroads in that the
clause of the Hepburn rate law which
prohibits interstate railroads from car
rying commodities manufactured, min
ed or produced directly or Indirectly
by the roads was declared unconstitu
tional, and the general Impression had
been that the decision would be af
firmed by the supreme court.
Justice White's decision Is that con
gress did not transcend Its constitu
tional authority In the enactment of
the commodities provision; but, on the
other hand, it was held that the gov
ernment's construction of the provi
sion had been entirely too comprehen
sive. As construed by the court, the sole
object of the clause Is to prevent car
Tiers from being associated in Interest
with the commodities transported at
the time of transportation; hence that
the law only prohibits the transporta
tion of articles when they have been
produced by n railway company which
nas not In good faith parted with
them, when the company owns or
controls In whaleAq,in-part the com
'modity to be transportedrnnd when
the company has nn -Interest, direct or
Indirect, in the commodity In a legal
It was especially held, however, that ,
the prohibition does not apply to the
ownership of stock In a producing ,
company, but that a carrier "may own 1
stock In such a company nnd nt the j
ame time transport the product of
mat company.
Summed up, the act only compels
companies to dissociate themselves
from the products they carry, and the
contention of the government that the
law applies to ownership of stock and
prohibits the transportation of com
modities simply because they have
lieen produced by a railroad company
regardless of the fact that the com
pany has parted with them Is untena
ble and incapable of enforcement.
It thus appears, first, that the com
modities clause Is a vital and opera
tive statute with respect to all prod
ucts, such as coal, which the railroad
companies actually own at the time of
transportation and that the railroads
must sell such products to somebody
else lefore they can lawfully ship
them and, second, that unless the act
Is promptly amended so as to include
stock ownership the railroads can es
cape the law entirely by converting
their direct ownership of coal proper
ties Into stock ownership by the or
ganization of subsidiary coal compa
nies. The effect of the decision' under ex
isting conditions Is favorable to the
railroads, and the government lost on
practically every point except the sus
tention of the principle involved.
Attorney Genernl Wickersham made
the following statement Interpreting
the decision as he understands It:
"Mr. Justice White's statement In
announcing the opinion of the supreme
court in the commodities clause Is In
effect that a proper construction of
the so called commodities clause Is
that It prohibits the transportation by
railroad companies only of commodi
ties owned in whole or in part by such
companies nt the time of transporta
tion and that it does not prohibit them
from transporting commodities manu
factured, mined or produced by them
previous to such transportation w'hlch
are not owned by thera at tho time of
transportation and, further, that It
does not apply to transportation of
commodities owned by other corpora
tions in which the transporting rail
road company has a stock interest.
"The decision does not sustain the
full contention of either the govern
ment or the carrlors. It adopts a con
struction of the statute different from
that contended for by both the govern
ment and the carriers. It, however,
sustains tho principle contended for
by tho government that congress has
power to prohibit a carrier from car
rying in competition with other ship
pers commodities which the carrier
owns or in which it is interested.
"It operates at once to prevent nny
oarrler from transporting any com
modity which It anna at tho moment
of shipment, and It con firms in con
gress power to extend that prohibition
to tho carriage of commodities owned
at the time of shipment by a corpora
tion In which the carrier has n stock
Counsel Fop Coal Carrying Roads Re
joices In Decision.
New York, May 4. The coal carry
ing railroads will be practically unaf
fected in their business by the deci
sion of the supreme court of the Unit
ed States In the commodities cases, Is
the opinion-of 'itobort W. De Forest,
counsel for the companies.
Only In the case of the Delaware,
Lackawanna' and Western Ilnllroad
company will changes in business
methods be necessitated by the deci
sion. Is Mr. De Forest's belief, and
this not In a way to hamper the com
pany for any length of time in the
handling of its coal products.
Mr. De Forest said:
"Practically the decision of the su
preme court Is In favor of the railroads
and the public and against the conten
tion of the attorney general that all
coal mined by the railroads wlilch
had a direct ownership In the conl and
that all coal mined by subsidiary coal
companies In which the railroad com
panies had a stock interest was barred
of Interstate transportation by the
Hepburn net.
"Of the anthracite carriers only two,
the Delaware, Lackawanna and West
ern and the Delaware and Hudson,
have any direct legal ownership In an
thracite coal. Both these companies
are authorized by their charters to
mine anthracite coal and to transport
"All the other so called anthracite
carriers that Is, the Reading, the Cen
tral Railroad of New Jersey, the Penn
sylvania railroad, the Lehigh Valley,
the Erie and the New York, Ontario
and Western, own stock in coal min
ing companies.
"The decision establishes the legality
of anthracite coal transportation by
theso six last named companies that
is, the transportation of coal mined by,
companies in which they have stock
"The whole country Js to be con
gratulated, that the supereme court has
put a practical interpretation upon this
act,, -which does not prevent the free
transportation out of Pennsylvania
into other states of a commodity which
has become a necessity of life, sub
stantially as heretofore."
Enthusiasm as Aeronautical Society

London, May 4. There was. a re
markable demonstration of enthusiasm
hero when the Aeronautical Society of

Speeches were made by Major Ba

brief speeches, tersly expressing their
thanks. A reception was then held,
and the brothers were surrounded,
questioned and besieged for auto
graphs. They were given a dinner at

Blame For Adana Massa
cres Laid on Old Sultan.
Correspondence of Deposed Mon
arch Reveals Him as Archcon
spirator Against Chris
tians. Constantinople, May 4. Documen
tary evidence has been discovered
among the records of the telegraph
office here showing that the deposed
sultan. Abdul llnmld, Inspired the mas
sacres in the Adana district and that
they were to coincide with the political
events hero.
Other papers have been found indi
cating also that the conspirators nt the
palace acted in the sultan's name In
prepnrlng the military mutiny of April
13. Lists of houses, with notes on tho
kind of loot to be found therein, were
discovered on some of the prisoners
now In custody.
The urrangemcuts Included a gen
eral massacre of foreigners in Con
stantinople, including the diplomatic
representatives, on April 24.
Thirteen civilians and soldiers, sen
tenced by the rallltnry courts to death
for murder, were hanged In different
parts of Constantinople.
Major Youssef, his son, and three
other men who killed the Syrian depu
ty, Emir Mohammed Arslan, In front
of the parliament building were ex
ecuted on the spot where they commit
ted the crime. Five others were hanged
nt the entrance of the ministry of war
and three men at the Stainboul end of
the Galata bridge.
Upon the breast of each criminal
was pinned a large placard In Turkish
that could be read at a considerable
distance setting forth the sentence of
the., court '
" Major Youssef was commandant of
Jhe First battalion of the Seventh regi
ment. Among the noncommissioned
officers executed was Hamdi Bin Yech
ar, a sergeant in the Fourth battalion
of the Salonlkl chausseurs. The men
executed on Galata bridge were guilty
of tho murder of Lieutenant Ells.
Major Youssef was the man who,
after the murder of Deputy Arsian,
made his way to the house of parlia
ment and lu a speech denounced the
members for acting against the laws
of the Koran. Yechor was the man
who planned the details of the revolt
of April 13 and who was commander
In chief and practically dictator of
Constantinople for the two days fol
lowing. The other eleven men worked
under Yechar.
The new Turkish cabinet has re
signed, and the political situation Is
bewildering. No one can tell what tho
outcome will be. This latest ministry
was organized only four days ago,
with Tcwllk Tasha as grand vizier.
The sultan has requested Tewflk
Pasha to consult with his colleagues
and reconsider his resignation, al
though there is much opposition on
the part of the members of parliament
to the composition of the cabinet and
to Tewflk Pasha himself, as it is con
sidered that the ministers are too close
ly connected with the old order. The
cabinet may face the chamber, how
ever, In the hope of securing n majori

Piles Opposes Beveridge In Senate In
Attempt to Reduce Tariff.
Washington, Mny 4. Forest conser
vation and its relation to the tariff
caused a lively discussion In the sen
ate when Senator Beveridge of In
diana, taking up an argument for the
Dlngley rates on lumber made by Sen
ator Piles of Washington, started to
demonstrate that the present policy of
the far western lumbermen was that
of total destruction of the forests.
This assumption Senator Piles par
tially confirmed on the ground that It
was almost impossible to cut out rljK!
timber in tho Pacific coast forest be
cause of its great size and proximity,
tree to tree, without destroying all
surrounding timber. He urged that a
high price for lumber would permit
Senator Piles said that It was Impos
sible to manufacture lumber on the
American side In competition with
Canada because, while the American
1 1 1 1 1 mini muNi mil oniy erect ins mill
and buy sufficient standing timber to
supply it, tho Canadian can lease from
the Canadian government (HO acres of
timber land for $140 a year and then
pay only 50 cents per 1,000 feet for
the lumber cut off as against n rate
on the American side of $2 per 1,000
feet stumpage.
The senator said the German system
of conservation was wholly Impossible
on the Pacific coast and admitted that
the Interior mills of bis section prac
tically exhausted timber land before
letting go of It.
Senator Sinoot of Utah declared him
self In favor of a duty which would
assure a profit sufficient to cover the
cost of reforestation to the American
lumberman. He said the price of
lumber was now moderate, but would
eventually go higher.
"Tho tariff keeps up the price, and
the price saves the forests," retorted
Senator Beveridge. "I hnve never
seen any lumberman in the central or
far west who undertook to save his
forests at nny price."
"When the price Is high you will
find the lumbermen conserving their
forests," said Senator Smoot.
Railroad Need Not Pay $330,000 For
Granting Rebates.
Snn Francisco, May 4. The United
States circuit court of appeals here
reversed the decision of the district
court In the case In which the Atchi
son, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway
company was found guilty of granting
rebates and sentenced to pay fines of
The cause for the reversal was the
error of the trial court In striking out
the testimony of F. P. Gregson, agent
of the Santa Fe.
Gregson testified that the had been
satisfied by the shippers that the full
40,000 pounds, constituting n carload
lot under the company's tariff, had
been placed In tho cars, but that the
railroad scales at the point of deliv
ery had shown a considerable loss In
transit. On this showing he said the
company had agreed to accept pay
ment from the Grand Canyon Lime
and Cement company of Arizona for
the amount actually delivered at the
legal carload rate.
The appellate court holds that inas
much as the freight tariff provides
that a shipper shall pay for all over
40,000 pounds contained In a car and
that since the full amount necessary
to obtain a carload rate was shipped In
each Instance the trial court erred in
not allowing this testimony to go be
fore the jury.

Owing to not being able to get the
manuscript on in time, Gardner-Vincent
Co. will present " David Gar
rick" for Thursday, Friday, and Sat
urday of this week instead of
" Sapho."
" David Garrlck " is one of tho
most beautiful plays written and
has always been in the repertoire of
such artists as Edwin Booth, Chas.
Fecter, Kyrle Bellew and In fact all
our great stars.
It tells a beautiful story of an In-"
cident in the life of England's great
est actor, Mr. David Garrick.
The first act shows the home of
David Garrick with its quaint pict
ures, play books, etc., the arrival of
Garrick after a hard and irksome re
hearsal at Druary Lane Theatre, the
scene between Garrick and Ingot
where he promises to cure the girl
of her love for him.
The second and third acts are
laid in Simon Ingot's home. These
acts test both Mr. Gardner and Miss
Vincent to the utmost, one moment
the audience is convulsed with
laughter and the next In tears.
The fourth act explains everything
and all ends happy.
As the play takes place in the old
en times, it calls for beautiful cos
tumes. Market Reports.
