MRS. MARY MILLIGAN OF NOR
FOLK IN COURT.
ADMITS THAT SHE SWEARS
Most Damaging Testimony Against
the Mother From Whom the Three
Children Were Not Taken , Was Evi
dence of Her Profanity.
Mrs. Mary Mllllgan of Norfolk may
keep her three llttlo children , her llt
tlo boy of ten , her llttlo daughter of
six and tbo llttlo child of two. The
county court of Madison has said that
tbo children may stay with the mother
provided that their homo Ufa In the
future meets the requirements of the
Teara came to tbo eyes of some of
the court olllclals yesterday In Madi
son when Mrs. Mllllgau pleaded for
her children , when the two llttlo chil
dren clinging to their mother's dress
cried and begged the court to lot them
stay with the mother who bad been
charged with cruelty to them. In the
end Judge Bates , acting under the Ju
venile court law , lot the woman comeback
back to Norfolk with her homo Intact
but with a court order standing In the
county Judge's olllco to the effect that
Sheriff and Mrs. J. J. Clements should
have supervision over the children as
The unnatural use of profane and
indecent language in tbo presence of
her children was the most damaging
evidence that was brought against Mrs.
Mllllgan by her neighbors called to
Madison to testify.
This was a fault to which the moth
er admitted but holding her youngest
child In her lap and with her other
children around her the woman made
a plea for the unity of her homo which
the court did not disregard. There
wasn't much variety In the food on
her table in Norfolk , the mother said
but there was always enough of breac
and butter and breakfast food am
once a week there was meat. She
whipped her children , sbo said , as al
mothera do. And when shn swore
she said , It was only when she was
provoked and had lost her temper.
Mrs. Mllllgan takes In washing for
a living. Her homo Is a home of pov
erty , but already she has saved up $30
to meet the rigors of winter. She
wanted her children and the children
sobbed _ for tbo mother.
So when the ofllocra of the courl
atood face to face with the tragedy 01
a broken homo they let Mrs. Mllllgan
omising to use moro decorous Ian
suago in the future , go back to Nor
folk with her children.

Interstate Commission Says Action of
Adams Express Co , Unprecedented.
Washington , June 24. Interstate
commerce commissioners were amazed
yesterday when they read of the Ad
ams Express company's proposal to
issue an Interest-bearing bond dividend
of 200 per cent. First , because the
officials of tbo company thus publicly
advertise that they have a largo sur
plus on hand , and , second , that they
propose to distribute the surplus In
such a manner that future generations
will be asked to pay rates high enough
to pay the Interest charges on divi
As Individuals , commissioners talked
about the effrontery of the express
company olllclals in making such a
proposal. Officially , they considered It
their duty to say nothing because they
will bo called upon to pass upon the
question of whether rates on express
business are too high.
Tbo general view among them la
that the expresa company ofllcials
| chose the most offensive way to dis
tribute their Burplus.
As outlined In the press reports ,
they are not pretending to bo issuing
bonds to make "betterments" or In
crease the equipment of the company.
They are proposing to distribute a
largo surplus in such form that , in the
future , they will bo able to charge
rates high enough to pay Interest on
a long-paid Interest.
The proposal is regarded as moro
obnoxloua than anything Harrlman
over did or proposed to do.
It la believed that the determina
tion of the company's ofllcers to make
the surplua division in the way pro
posed la prompted by the knowledge
that on July 1 the commission will put
Into effect tbo uniform bookkeeping
system devised by Prof. Henry Ad
ams , which will classify the charges
that may bo made against capital ac
count , operating expenses and main
tenance of way. After the beginning
of July , such a charge against the cap
ital account for the purpose of distrib
uting a surplua would not bo permitted
to pasa without challenge.
