WASHINGTON Tho supremo court
of the United States decided tho boun
dary caso between tho states of Mis

tho question as to whether a change

of tho river, to the east side of tho

Island, lying between Nemaha county,
Nebraska, and Atchison county, Mis
souri. The controversy originated In

in tho shnpo of an ox yoko, and on
tho night of July 5 of that year tho

Means by Which People Engaged
In Interstate Business Can Be Con

report of tho commissioner of corpora
tions wns submitted to congress Wed
nesday by Commissioner Garfield. Ho
says no satisfactory reform Is to be
expected under tho state system of
Incorporation; thnt tho federal govern
ment has at Its command sufficient
power to remedy existing conditions
In Its control of interstate commerce.
Ho therefore BUggosts that congress
consider tho advisability of enacting a
law for tho legislative regulation of
Interstate and forolgn commerco tin
der a license of franchise, which In
general Bhould provide as follows:
"Tho granting of a federal franchiso
or license to engage In Interstate com
merce. "Tho Imposition of all necessary re
quirements ns to corporato organiza
tion and management ns a condition
of tho retention of such franchises or
"The prohibition o? all corporations
and corporato agencies from engag
ing In lntcrstato and foreign com
merco without such federal franchiso
or license.
"Tho full protection of tho grantees
of such franchise or license who obey
tho laws applicable thereto.
"Tho right to rcfuso or withdraw
such franchiso or license In caso of
violation of law, with appropriate right
of judicial appeal to pi event ahuso of
power by the administrative officers."
Commissioner Garfield says tho
bureau under tho direction of the sec
retary of commerce and labor, affords
tho npproprlote machinery for tho ad
ministration of such a law.

Men In High Places Said to Be In

Senator Mitchell and Represcntatlvo
Blnger Hnrmann of Oregon left Wash
ington last night for Portland to ap
pear before the federal grand Jury and
faco charges which they have been
advised Implicated them in Oregon
land frauds.
Both Senator Mitchell and Mr. Har
mann declare In most positive terms
that they aro absolutely Innocent and
havo nothing to fear from returning
to Oregon. Both assert with equal
posltlveness that tho time has come
when "this outrageous persecution
must stqp." They will Insist upon their
right to go before the grand jury and
mako answer to all charges that may
bo mado against them, confident that
they will bo able to establish thoir
Innocence. They expect to havo a
hearing on Saturday.
When asked last night why ho had
decided to return to Portland at this
tlmo after declining to go as a wit
ness when summoned by subpoenas a
week ago, Senator Mitchell said:
"I was advised yesterday by tele
grams from Portland thnt It was re
ported there that Puter, Watson and
others of tho gang had mado confes
sions implicating me and that there
would be an effort mado to Indict mo
and Hermann before the Jury which
meets tomorrow. A week ago, when
I was called as a witness, I had no
intimation that it was claimed that I
was Implicated In any way and I did
not feel It my duty to go and sacrifice
public business, but tho moment I was
advised that I was being attacked
personally I concluded I was Justified
In sacrificing public business and
everything else to go and defend my
character against assaults that I know
to bo without any foundation what
ever." Senator Mitchell sent this telegram
yesterday to District Attorney Hall
and Assistant Attorney General
"I will bo In Portland next Satur
day. I demand thorough Investigation
before giand jury of all charges, if
any, against me. I also demand right
to appear as witness before grand
Representative Hermann before
leaving mado this statement:
"Information having been received
thnt there was a probability that an
attempt would be made to lnvolvo
Senator Mitchell and myself In tho
grand jury Investigation as to land
frauds In Oregon. I believe It to bo
my duty to proceed to Portland and
there ask tho privilege of meeting any
charges which may be preferred."
Both Senator Mitchell and Mr. Her
mann say, continues the Post, that i-o
movement against them has been dl
roced by Secretary Hitchcock and at
tribute it to his personal hostility to
ward them.

offico regarding tho reports from Eng

Newspaper Circulation.

state that It would cover no fewer
than 10,450 squaro miles of surface ;
that It is printed on 781,250 tons of
paper; nnd, further, that if tho num

To Train Servants.
Hamburg Is to have a school for
training servants. It is not intended
to compete with existing schools
which provide training in domestic
science for girls of well-to-do fami
lies. Every housekeeper should know
that If they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry uso they
will save not only time, because It
never sticks to the iron, but because
each package contains 1G oz. one full
pound while all other Cold Water
Starches are put up in -pound pack
ages, and tho price is the samo. 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch Is free from all Injurious chem
icals. If your grocer tries to cell you a
12-oz. package It Is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he put3 In Defiance.
Ho knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package In large let
ters and figures "16 ozs." Demand
Defiance and save much time and
money and the annoyance of the Iron
sticking. Defiance never sticks.
