Tribute to the
Even John Philip Sousa, the great bandmaster, who has no use for
Phonographs, has been forced to recognize the Phonograph as a for
midable competitor. The two-step king says that people will no
longer go to concerts if they can have music in their own homes so
easily and so cheaply as they can with the Phonograph. This is an
unwilling tribute, but it is nevertheless a tribute. The man who has
a Phonograph has a concert in his own house. Even a king could not
have more. At our store you can hear them any time.

STATE WINS POINT
MISSOURI TO TEST LOW FARE
LAW FOR THREE MONTHS.
Judge Mcpherson Decides Law Shall
Be Given Practical Test So That
Reasonableness May Be Ascertained.
Injunction Question Up Later.
Kansas City, Juno IS. The Missouri
2-ccnt passenger faro act will go into
effect at C a. in. tomorrow and be
given a three months' trial. If, at the
end of that time, it is found to be uu
remunerative its enforcement can then
be fought in the courts by tho rail
roads. The- state officials are,- temporarily
enjoined from enforcing tho maximum
freight rate law and this case will be
argued later in the federal court.
Judge Smith .-I'licrson, in the
United States district court here, alter
handing down an opinion maintaining
the court's jurisdiction in tho prem
ises, ordered tho promulgation of tho
above stated facts, which had been
agreed to by tho attorneys lor the
F.tato and tho eighteen .Missouri rail
roads involved. The court In its de
cision had suggested that the 2-cent
faro should bo first given a practical
trial before injunction proceedings
preventing its enforcement bo con
sldeied. Herbert S. Hadley, attorney gen
eral, said, regarding tho 2-cent bill:
"If at the end of three months tho
railroads want to litigate tho reason
ableness of these rates tho question
of tho Jurisdiction of tho state and fed
eral courts to determine tho question
will be fought out, and the state has
lost none of its rights or advantages.
Tho Injunction suits which I have
brought ngainst tho companios on tho
pasiouger rates in tho state court will
stand. As the reasonableness of tho
freight rate law can bo moro speedily
heard and determined by the federal
court on nccouut of tho fact that prac
tically all tho testimony necessary to
tho determination lias been already
taken there, it will be heard nnd da
elded in that court. Tho state is in
tho better position to win tho case un
dor the law of 1007 than it was under
tho law of 1905. I reel that the order
made It both a moral and a substau-
tlal victory for tho state."
The Court's Opinion.
Judge McPherson said In part:
"That the fixing of rates by tho leg
islature is presumptively correct, all
concede. That it is a legislative act.
all ngiee. But that such rates must
be reasonably remunerative, cannot
longer be discussed. Tho railroads
aro entitled to cost nnd reasonablo
profit, and no fair-minded man dis
putes It. How to arrive at tho cost
and reasonable profit is a most difficult
problem. Rut It must bo ascertained
and this ascertainment can only bo
by judicial proceedings and to bo de
termined only by tho courts and ulti
mately by tho supreme court of tho
United States. No skill of tho drafts
man by tho use of words or phrasing I
can take that from the courts to the '
town meeting. It cannot bo changed ',
by declamation, either sophomoric or
by invective. It can novor bo settled
In a criminal caso by arresting ticket
ngents or conductors. Tho supremo '
court in tho end must have tho evi
dence, with the right to make tho ulti
mate findings of fact. No local tri
bunal, federal or state, can foreclose
the fact as would be done if tho caso
goes to the supremo court on writ of
error to the state courts, and from tho
state courts thero is no method of re
view by writ of error.
"Thero is but one orderly nnd
seemly way and that Is in equity, witli
the right of appeal to the supremo
court, as has been said by that court
over and over again. Tho argument
that the courts of the state can de
cide as to the validity of tho laws
of the stato, as well as can tho United
Stntes courts, will not be argued by
any federal judge, but will bo con
coded. Thoso comts are as high mind
ed and as learned as aro tho federal
courts, but that Is not the question.
It Is a question or jurisdiction. And
this court has jurisdiction and will
maintain its jurisdiction.
"it is urged with much plausibility
that because penalties aro affixed to
the statutes of 1007 that tho criminal
courts of tho states only tako Jurisdic
tion. Tho attorney general and rail
roads commissioners havo much to
do with tho enforcement of those stat
utes, which tho railways contend aro
void In part. In tho original casos
tho question was whether all tho earn
ings In tho nggregato wore remunera
tive. That question is still present
under tho statutes of 1907. Whether
these laws by raising the freight rates
and lowering tho pnssengor tares are
remunerative in the aggregate must
bo considered by tho court. The state
Is not In effect a party, because tho
charge is that these oillclals aro seek
ing to enforce void statutes, in more
ways than by Inflicting penalties."
