In a Scathing Rebuke by Court the
Colossal Corporation Is Placed on
the Same Level an Counterfeiter and ,
Common Thief.
Chicago, Aug. 5. Judge Kencsaw
M Landls, In the United States dis
trict court, lined the Standard Oil
company of Indiana $2IVMO,uuO lor vio
lations of the law against accepting re
bates from railroads." The fine Is the

by the company through its rebating
operations. Tho case will bo carried
to the higher courts by the defendant
Tho penalty Imposed upon the com
pany is the maximum permitted under
the law, and It was announced at tho
end of a long opinion in which tho
methods and practices of the Stand
ard Oil company were mercilessly
scored. The judge, in fact, declared
in his opinion that the olllcials of the
Standard Oil company who weio re
sponsible for the practices of which
the corporation was found guilty were
r.o better than counterfeiters and
thieves, his exact language being:
"We may as well look at this situa
tion squatoly. The men who thus de
liberately violate this law wrong so
ciety more deeply than does he who
counterfeits the coins or steals let
ters from tho mall."

have studied tho different cases differ

Incline to tho belief that the assaults
are the work of one man, who has the
mad animal Instinct of the london and
Rei'lln "ripper." Others combat this
theory and point to tho widely sep
arated points at which tho crimes oc
curred and the different methods with
which flna. murder was accomplished.

Surprise Tests Inaugurated on Rail
roads Are Satisfactory.
Omaha, Aug. 7. Although the
Utile n Pacific has been the only Ne
braska road credited with having In
augurated tho "surprise tests" over
Its system, It now develops that tho
Hock Island, Burlington and North
western have for some time been giv
ing their road employes a "tryout" by
this means and that tho reports re
sulting from the tests show conditions
to bo satisfactory.
An employe of the Union Pacific
who has read the reports following
the surprise tests say that they show
a decided Improvement in vigilance on
the part of tho trainmen and that
fewer signals aro being Ignored now
than, ever before.
A new test has been made, consist
ing of tho changing of tho date on
train orders. If the engineer accepts
the order a mark is made against him.
If he refuses It on account of the
false date ho is given due credit.
Seven engineers were discharged
from tho employ of the Union Pacific
a month or so ago for passing "fixed"
semaphore signals, but most of them
were later reinstated. Tho records of
the other roads are said to show about
the same results.

Crowd Storms Street Car Barns Where "
Policeman Had Sought Refuge With
Prisoner Attempt to Lynch Offend-)
er Falls Through Ovcreagerness,
New York, Aug. 7. More of vfhnt come to be seriously known at
police headquarters as "near" crimes
against girls were followed by nearer
lynehlngs. Out of tho score of com
plaints that reached ,the police, a
half dozen dcninnded serious attention.
Whether tho number Is extraordinary
Is disputed, but certain It Is that
never before has mob vengeance so
frequently attended attacks upon chil
dren. Led by a woman who, alternately
in Italian nnd broken English, cried
"Avenge my daughter," a reckless
crowd of perhaps 2,000 persons
stormed tho Fourteenth street car
bains of the Metropolitan Street Hall
way company, where a policeman had
sought refuge with a seriously puui- ,
moiled prlfconcr. Paul Sorgerate, a
Greek peddler, thirty years of age,
had made tho mistake, so it is
charged, of kissing Grace Josco, an
Italian of cloven years. A shrill cry
from the girl and an Impassioned ap
peal by tho mother put the foreigners
of tho neighborhood In n rage and as
tho Greek took to his heels, a crowd
puraued. When a block had been cov
ered Sorgerate stumbled and fell, nnd
the mob was upon him. Kicked nearly
senseless, tho Greek nevertheless
gained his feet only to be knocked
down again. By this time somo one
had snatched a clothesline from the
window of a grocery store nnd tho
rioters attempted to put a noose over
tho offender's hend. Only. the over-1
agerness of each rioter to liavo a
hand In tho lassoing saved the ped
dler's neck. During tho confusion a
policeman arrived and clubbed his way .
to the endangered man. For a mo
ment tho crowd fell back and within
that time tho olllcer had dragged hl
man to the nearby car barns. Police
reserves stood off the mob, while the
Greek wns hustled Into a patrol
Innocent Man Mobbed.
Coated of their man, the crowd
vented Its fury on Gnston Keiiskel,
an unoffending workman, homeward
bound. As he was passing tho rioters
a boy pointed him out, at the same
time yelling: "That's the man's
friend. He was there too." Kerlskel i
was pounded until ho was unconscious.

Fnrroll, each about ten years old, ac

was frightfully mauled before rescued
from a mob by tho police.
An attempt to assault a woamn on the
street adds another case to the long
list of attacks mnde on women nnd
children in tho streets of New York.
Despite the vigilance of the police,
who have been doing double duty to
prevent a further spread of the crime
wave, the attack would have been suc
cessful had It not been for the desper
ate struggle of Adelaide Wildrer, a
trained nurse, who fought her assail
ant with n hat pin and finally routed
him. Miss Wlldrer's screams brought
the police, who pursued tho man to
Central park, where he was brought
to bay with a fusillade of bullets from
the revolvers of the officers. The

New Proof Makes Members Liable to
Murder Indictments.
Now York, Aug. 7. District Attor
ney Joromo's office, by securing a
copy of the "Fundamental Constitution
of the Reformed Hunchaklst Revolu
tionary Society," has secured evidence
which, tho attorney's assistants claim,
will place every member of the society
liable to indictment for murder.
The constitution, which every mem
ber of tho society must tnko an oath
to obey, states plainly thnt the gen
eral ass wn lily and various central
committers have the right to condemn
persons to death to carry out Its pun
ishment, and It Is on this clause that
the district attorney's office bases its
claim for tho murder indictments.
