CAW MUST BE CHANGED.
Interstate Commission Moke It An
final Kcpnrt to Congress.
The thirteenth annual report of the In
terstate commerce commission was made
to Congress at Monday a session. I he
report complain that although In its last
report the commission made clear that
the act to regulate commerce had proved
defective, and that It could not be en
forced, yet not a line ef the statute had
been changed, ami none of the burden
some condition have been removed or
modified. The commission therefore re
news recommendations previously made.
The interstate commerce law now is
unsatisfactory because railroads can
charge whatever tliey please for their
services, and no single classification of
freights can Ik- established. Vast schemes
of railway control are now In process of
consummation, and a vast centralisation
of railroad proicrtie Is under way, yet
there ia no public authority which can
efficiently control them, Wbatevf. evils
that may result are without remedy.
Among the noteworthy facts of general
interest is the remarkable increase during
the year in the volume of railroad busi
ness. Gross and net revenues of rail
roads have grown, and the duiiiImt of
railroad failures has been greatly reduc
ed. This also diminishes the frequency
of those practices which are made crim
inal misdemeanors by the statutes.
Carriers have made snbstnntiul in
creases in the scale of their charges.
They made these advances without giv
ing the shippers an opportunity to be
heard. Many complaints have Is-cn made,
but under the existing conditions the rnil
roads are free to make rates as they
choose. Published tariffs have been dis
regarded, although some shippers who
failed to receive uulawful concession
were driven out of busimss. The com
mission cannot punish these criminal In
fractions of the law. Unlawful prac
tices have been less general, however,
because of the promise to observe tariffs
made by presidents of the railroad to the

When the train brake comes into gen

"We further find that about 1S7S he
married Louisa Smith, his first lawful
wife, with whom he has ever since lived
as such, and who, since their marriage,
has borne him six children.
"That about INS.", he married, as his
plural wife, Celia Dibble, with whom he
has ever since lived as such, and who,
since such marriage, has borne him six
children, of whom the Inst were twins,

Already it has come to the point where
A woman should show pleats in some por
tion of her new gown. One may with
good grace continue to wear a gowu with
out pleats, but everyone is going to know
that it is not brand new. The pleated
skirl is a fine selection for a new skirt,
and one is quite sale to go further and
have the bodice pleated, too. The left
hand model in the next picture is ft safe
guide. It was a delicate maize pastel
cloth, pleated as4-hown, and topped by a
yoke of white lace embroidered iu maize,
this edged with white emhroidered more
heavily with maize and gilt. At the op
posite side of the picture is nnother gown
of the same general type, but in it the
princess effect from pleats above aud be
low the belt was more distinct, and its
material was black velvet. On the bodice
the folds narrowed to the waist, while
the skirt appeared to take up these same
folds and widen them to the foot where
they escaped to make the flare. Between
the pleats a gleam of satin showed. The
effect was simple, elegant and a guar
anty of gooil dressmaking.
Thia gow n would serve as a rich house
dress, or for a high-necked dinner cos
tume. Daintier and calling for less ex
penditure are tho house dresses of which
the second iu this row was a fair sample.
These may be either In any of the soft
pastel cloths, or the pretty silks that are
worn all the year round. Narrow tuck
ing takes the place of pleating, and cord
ing and smocking are also seen. A pretty
effect is made by shirring at intervals,
allow ing the material to be free between.
This idea is attractive now and is sure
to be elaborated when we come to the
lawns and chiffons of summer. In this
model the top of the f-kirt pleats was
drawn into tiny tucks, and the tucking
was continued on pieces that passed over
the belt to make bodice finish. The length
ening of waist that resulted wus consid
erable. This fancy for pleats renews favor for
strapping, which reappears in as asser-

It is such fancies that make one wonder
however women could have fluffed them
selves up In frills and pufferies.
There 1 a strong move .against the
"horsy" effect of the usual top coat.
Many women who like the looseness front
and back dislike the pocket finish, big
buttons and sporty revers. For these
women is offered an attractive choice
from modifications of the empire coat.
These show none of the awkward fea
tures of tbe box coat. Almost oil of them
are set on a yoke, and In the manage
ment of this yoke aud the draping about
Its edge lies the chief grace. The Marie
Antoinette hood drapery Is the favorite,
and i modified In many charming ways,
besides now and then being n really truly
hood. A scarf draping about the yoke,
and knotting at one aide to fall In long
ends that mark the opening of the coat
is one of the more grnceful Ideas.' Such

a deep band of sable made the shoulder
