Presldcnt Roosevelt Makes It Plain
That He Considers Commerce Regu.
latlon an Issu of Vital Importance
to the Country.
WASIIINGTON- President Roose.
, 'elt contlnuell his conferences with
members of congress on the suhject
of tarlrr rovislon nnd of leglslotlon
JlrO\.ltlln for an incrcn1o ! of the Inlm'-
state commCfce commission. Ono
statement , which stands out almost
with the pre.emlnence of an oll1cial
announcement , is that , unleEs COtllreBS
at the } lresent session shall enact legIslation -
Islation 1001 lng to a regulation of rail.
road freight rates , an extraordinar ) '
session of th Io'Ift.nlnth congress will
be called by the president to denl
with that 11roblem.
It can be sl\1d that the presllentg
regards the interst.ato commerce
question as the paramount Issue now
before the American pcople.
At the confOl'ence last Saturday he
informed those whom ho had Bum-
moned into consultutlon that , in his
judgment , lhe question of railroad
freight rates was far moro important
than that of the tariff and that , while
ho desired a readjustment of the oxlst.
ing customs duties , he would not ex.
pect auy radical differences in the re'
publican party on that question. Ho
snld definitely that ho would call an
extraordinary session of congress to
considOl' Interstate legislation unless
definlto action was talwn b ) ' congress
on the sUbject at the present. At that
session ho hoped tariff rovislon to
the extent ho had Illtllcated might bo
accomplished , hut he made it pOl'fect.
Iy clear that , in his mInd , the over.
shadowing issue was that of railroad
freight rl tes.
Ia a tnw with Spealwr Cannon who
Is recognized as being O\JIJOsed \ at this
Umo to any rovlgion of the tariff. the
president relteratell his statement
made at. Saturda"s conference that.
while he desired action on the ques ,
tlon , he was willing to abldo by the
Judgment of the republican le ders in
congress , as ho regarded the tariff
matter as ono which the chosen rep.
resentatives of the American people
should determine.
Ho Indicated , in so many wordR
that , whllo firt ) ' years hence practlc.
ally nobody would bo able to say
whether the tariff duties on any given
artlclo at this tlmo were 60 per cent
ad valorem or 6 1Jer cent ad valorem , .
and nObody would care anything about
that what the dulies were , the inter.
state commerce question involved a
principle dear to every right thinldng
and rhht minded American , precisely
as the whole matter of dealing witb
corporations Involves a prlnciplo , and
ho would fight for that principle with
all the power that in him lies.
The president corrolJOrated the
statement attributed to him that t.he
tariff question was one merely of ex.
pedlenc ) ' , which would be solved with.
mit fricUon between him and the con.
gress. Any serious differences , ho is
Imown to have said , between him and
the congress on the tariff revilion : !
matter are quite Impossible.

The charges on which infiuential
clergymen and laymen ot the Proto
estant Episcopal church nro tr'ing to
bring to trial Right He" . Ethelbert
Talbot , bishop of central Pennsylva.
nia , nro in brief as follows : Criminal
libel , immoralit ) ' , false statements ,
the circulation of a false and mali.
cious and defamatory reports , falsU-
mg , breach of ordinaUon and consecration -
cration vows and conduct unbecoming
a bishop.
In a statement Herbert Noble , a
New York lawyer , representing the
presenters in the charge against Dish.
op Talbot , gave au outline ot tllO
course to bo followed by his cliont.q in
the hearing ot the case. Mr. Noble
charged that DlsI10P Tnlbot "hns pursued -
sued Dr. Irvine relentlessly , " and then
quoted from a ( } ecislon of the supreme -
preme court of Pennsylvania in a suit
brought by Dr. Irvine against Dishop
Talbot and 1\Irs. Elliott to tllis effect :
"Undoubtedly defendants combined
to prefer charges against Irvine in
the church court and acted to support
the charges. They wanted him deposed -
posed from the ministry. That tht'Y'
also hatell him , nnd by their course
possibly graUfied less worthy mo.
Uves Umn these which prompt a true
Christian to action , is ot no moment
except insofar as It might ! Javo at-
tectell their credibility as witnesses
before the court which t.ried him. "
Mr. Noble denied that Dr. Irvine
was deposed ror immorallt ) " , denied
that for twenty 3'ears ho was under
the ban ot ecclesiastical discipline ,
Bnd that ho was ever suspended or
inhibited as charged in the Upjohn
Referring to a statement in the letter -
ter that eight bishops had hel ( }
charges ngainst Dr. Irvine , 1\11' . Noble
said the presenters ( } Isagreo with this ,
nnd added that Dr. Irvlno denies that
Dishop Burgess ever made a chnrgo
of any lt1nd against him , as alleged
according to 11. copy of UlO Upjohn
It is made clear from the develop.
monts that the names of several women -
en will be brought into the casO.
Mr. Noble S 'lya 1\Irs. Elliott , over
hose church standing the whole
controversy arose , had been pronounced -
nounced "excommunicated" by Dishop
Talbot "becauso she had married after
having obtained a divorce from her
husband on grounds other than adul-
tery. "
Continuing , Mr. Nohle says that 11:1V-
ing deposed Irvlno from office , tl s
bishop wrote on Jan. 21i , 1002 , the
lotteI' complained ot to Rev. Dr. Samuel -
uel Upjohn , and two years after Its
date sent a copy ot thiB leUer to Rov.
Dr. Jolm Fulton. The letter referred
to ao the letter to Dr. Upjohn is
.signed by "Ethelbert Talbot , " and
charged Dr. Irvlno with immorality.
Irvine Talks of the Case.
"Can n bishop or ought a bishop
write defamatory letters in secret in
ardor to injure nny member ot the
ministry ? This is the question which
will ho decided n.t the meotlng of the
board of Inquiry , " said Dr. Irvine In
dlscussing UIO charges which
been made against him.
"My reinsto.tomcnr , " continued Dr.
Irvine , "is ot secondary consideration
when contrasted with the above query.

Bishop May Not Be Tried.
Every ono ot the six men who live
nt Huntingdon. Pa. , and who are published -
lished as having signed the presentment -
mont against BIshop Ethelbert Tal.
bet , resulting in Dlshop Tuttle calling
n court of Inquiry , repudiates his sig-
nature. This vitiates the present-
ment. as the canons require that at
least three of the presenters must live
in the diocese of the accused bishop.
Not only are signatures repudiated ,
but two of the leading residents of
lIunUngdon mentioned as presenters
-.Jolltl Langdon and .Tames Deni.
thorne-are decidedly opposed to having -
ing Dlshop Talbot placed on trial. In
bct , they hl\vo much sympathy for
Dishop 'I'albot , although Mr. Langdon
at least believes the trouble might
ha vo been satisfactorily settled long
ago had the bishop co-operated with
the vestrymen of St. John's church.
Much surprise was expressed by
the six men whose names figure as
prcsenters when t11ey Baw that they
were published as being responsible
tor Il ving Dlahop Talbot threatened
wIth trial before a court of inquiry.
