PROPOSED LAW TO
HIT HIGH PRICES
Chicago Congressman Says He Un
derstands There Are
Chicago, Nov. 22. Congressman A.
J. Sabath of Chicago, conferred with
United States District Attorney Clyne
Tuesday on a proposed law aimed at
the rise on food prices.
Sabath said he had information
that there are combines in food prod
ucts, such as potatoes, eggs and but
ter. He is drafting a bill which he
believes would prevent such specula
tion. Warehouse owners and cold stor
age men will be hardest hit in Sa
bath's bill, which would regulate the
time food can be kept in storage. He
would also provide for a congres
sional investigation of the food situa
tion and a special appropriation to
enable federal district attorneys to
push their fight on speculators.
Forty turkeys, 50 geese, 200 ducks
and one beef will be shot off at my
place, one mile east of Weeping Wa
ter, on Monday, Nov. 27. Will Partridge.
The suffragettes have lofty minds,
And are smart as all creation;
They can give the men some pointers
On how to run this nation.

At the Woodmen hall next Friday
For they're a bunch of orators,
And a mighty handsome sight.

Court's Action Merely Step to Place
Law Before United States
Supreme Court to Test Its
Kansas City, Mo., Nov.' 22. Judge
Wallace C. Hook, in the federal court
here today, held that the Adamson
eight-hour" law is unconstitutiona
Judge Hook refused to grant the
motion put by federal attorneys, ask
ing that the application of the receiv
ers of the Missouri, Oklahoma & Gulf
railroad for an injunction against the
Adamson law, be dismissed.
Judge Hook made his decision at
11:18 o'clock this morning. "My de
cision was merely to rush the case to
the supreme court as rapidly as pos
sible," Judge Hook said after the de
cision. "1 have given the government
until 3 o'clock to perfect an appeal
to the higher court."
Francis M. Wilson, United States
district attorney, and Frank Hager
man, special counsel for the govern
ment, intimated that the appeal would
be ready "by or before 3 o'clock.
The Court's Decision.
Judge Hook's decision follows:
"This is an independent suit to en
join the enforcement of a recent act
of congress, commonly called the
Adamson law, upon the ground that it
is contrary to the constitution. In the
chaarcter of the averments, the plain
tiff's bill of complaint is stated to be
ypical of a number of bills recently
filed by railroad companies in various
district courts of the United States.
A motion to dismiss has been present
ed on behalf of the defendant United
States attorney.?: The sole question
raised by it is that of the constitu
tionality of the law. The court is in
formed that the other cases stand on
application for temporary injunctions.
To Get It Before High Court.
"An appeal from an order granting
or refusing a temporary injunction
goes to the circuit court of appeals
and not further by ordinary procedure,
while an appeal from a final order or
decree in such a case would go direct
to the supreme court of the United
States. In the former a decision would
be inconclusive; in the latter a de
cision would definitely settle the ques
tion for the whole country. The mo
tion to dismiss the case here, how
ever it is decided, will promptly re
sult in a final decree from which an
appeal will be taken to the supreme
court. The assistance of this court
has been invoked to facilitate a final
and authoritative determination of the"
constitutional question. The case was
presented but yesterday and a decision
is desired today. It is far from being
an agreeable duty for a judge to re
cord a judicial conclusion without the
care and deliberation essential to a
conviction that he would stand to in
every circumstance. Upon the merits
of a case the government neither asks
nor receives from a court greater con
sideration than is required by the set
tled rules and presumptions of law,
but a request by the Department of
Justice to aid the progress of a case
consistently with the rights of every
one cannot be declined, certainly not
for personal consideration.

son law and of .what is said of its

practical effect and what was intended
to be accomplished by it, the judgment
is that, as the court construes the
terms of the law, it cannot be sus
tained. Since both parties have saic
they would not plead further, what
ever the decision might be, a decree
will be entered for the plaintiffs, re
citing that the defendant prays and is
allowed an appeal in open court. The
case in which the plaintiffs were ap
pointed receivers is in charge of the
judge who is acting here. An order
will be entered in that case directing
plaintiffs and their counsel to co-op
erate with the Department of Justice
in lodging an appeal in the supreme
court by December 4 next and in then
moving for the advancement thereof
for such early hearing as that court
may find it convenient to grant; also
to invite counsel for the railroad com
panies and others similarly interested
in the question involved to partici
pate in the presentation of the motion
to advance and in the arguments on
the merits as fully as though their cli
ents were parties to this litigation
Though the decree of the court in the
case here will be final in form, yet, be
cause of the exceptional circumstances
the plaintiffs will be directed to keep
their accounts and be prepared
promptly to pay their employes on the
basis of the Adamson law should the
decree not be sustained."
DANCE AT GERMAN HOME.

PRESBYTERIAN CHOIR NOTICE.
The Presbyterian church choir will
hold their regular rehearsal at the

Thursday evening of this week, at

ary. All members please take notice.
Your Own Fig Tree.
It may interest you, says the New
York Sun, to know that figs can be
grown in pots or in the open ground in
regions where there are three months
of warm weather. The fig is less like
the apple and the peach, which ripen
all their fruit at once, than like the
raspberry and the blackberry, which
ripen their fruits continuously through
the bearing season. Figs continue to
ripen fruit until checked by cold
For pot culture the fig requires about
the same treatment as a rubber plant,
and if it gets plenty of water the fruit
will ripen. Vigorous plants will have
fruit in all stages of growth, from the
smallest green fruit to the ripe figs
ready to be picked and eaten.
Low Salaries In Greece.
No doubt Greek officers, who are
very badly paid as compared with the
English standard, console themselves
with the knowledge that they are
probably as well off in the army as
they would be in any other profession,
for salaries in Greece are all ridicu
lously low us gauged by those in Great
Britain. The highest judges, for ex
ample, do not get much more than 200
a year, while many of their less exalt
ed brothers have to make ends meet
on about half that sum, with the pros
pect of a full pension after thirty-five
years' service. London Chronicle.
