ment was made by the Interstate com
merce commission today that It would
not suspend official classification No.

This declination to act Is regarded as
a victory for the railways.
Only 58 Changes ; Some Reductions.
For nearly a month the commission
IIOH been overwhelmed with protests
against the proposed new classifica
tion of freight , many shippers seem
ing to entertain the Idea that the re
arrangement would result in largely
Increased rates. The subject was con
sidered very carefully by the commis
sion. In the 6,000 items and ratings
Involved there are only fifty-eight
changes , of which twenty-eight are
reductions and thirty advances , the
latter including twelve increases In
carload weights. In an official state
ment issued today the commission
Commloslon Issues Statement.
"The principal increases are the
carload minimum of horao vehicles
from 10,000 to 11,000 pounds and an
advance In classification of autos from
first class to 110 percent of first class
and the commission Is not satisfied
that these Items should be suspended.
"The ruling , however , will not pre
vent or delay the hearing of any com
plaint , which has been made or maybe
bo made against the reasonable and
of these or any other Increases affect
ed by the new classification. "

MOTHER'S A BASEBALL FAN.
43o the Neighbors Get Sarcastic and
Hang up Signs.
Newark , N.'J. , June 30. When Mrs.
Frank Bower of 425 South Tenth
street goes to a ball game nobody
< has to tell her why the pitcher is not
arrested when he hits the batter.
She has throe children among her
assets , and among her liabilities are
mleghbors who are of the opinion that
it is a sin and a shame that Mrs.
'Bower , in leaving home for the ball
game , should confide her two young
er children to the care of their 8-year-
For some time they have been so
neighborly that Mrs. Bower became
weary of their solicitude for the wel
fare of her children. So she hung out
on the pulley clothes line in her back
yard a placard which read :
"Neighbors : May I go to the ball
game ? "
She thought this delicate hint would
make the neighbors see that their in
terference was unheeded. She reckon
ed without her neighbors.
Only a little while after her satirical
placard appeared the clothes lines in
the other back yards In the neighbor
hood blossomed with answers. Ono
neighbor , who having no children o
her own , and has ample time in whlcl
to look after the children of others ,
hung out a placard which read :
"Who Is going to take care of your
children ? "
There was another :
"Take your kids with you. "
And another :
' . 'Ever hear of a home run ? "
Piqued by these messages , Mrs.
Bower went to the game just the
same. Last night her husband con
doled with her because of the attitude
of the neighbors and let her tell him
the story of the game. He is satisfied
with things as they are.
Montreal plays Newark today , and
Mrs. Bower will be there , neighbors' '
opinions as to the wisdom of her at
tendance to the contrary notwith
standing. Before she loaves for the
grandstand she will hoist a placard
which she expects , will convince the
lelghborH of her sincere affection for
the national gamo. This messages Is
, o road :
"I have gone to the ball game. My
children are well cared for. How about
ours ? "
If that placard docs not make the
lelghboru quit Mrs. Bower may test

The Oldest Democrat.
The death of Senator John Warwick
Daniel removes the oldest of the dem
ocratic senators In point of service.
Of the entire list he was the only one
who could be said to belong to the old
regime. And , as he was the oldest la
service , he was one of the most con
spicuous In popular favor.
For the past few years ho had re
mained much In the background. His
health had not been good and his
growing years seemed to tell on him.
He was not heard often In the senate
and his recent efforts were not hla
best. But previous to this period he
was spoken of frequently and hold
. high reputation as an orator. In those
earlier days his speeches were the
signal for the gathering of large au-
I dlences , and by many as an orator he
I was ranked with Voorhees , Ingalls ,
Wolcott and Vest. A man of exten
sive reading , liberal education and re
tentive memory , ho commanded a vol
uminous vocabulary. Ho spoke fluent
ly and with ease , and seemed never at
a loss for something pertinent to say.
Ho was a strong advocate of free sil
ver coinage and took a prominent part
In the debates connected with the sil
ver legislation of the nineties ,
j Gentleman of Old School.

Daniel so noteworthy as that of ur
banity. Whether in private life or In.

leagues , his courtesy was unfailing.
Even In the heat of debate and often
under provoking circumstances he
never failed to submit to Interrup
tions and to make polite response to
inquiries and objections. His treat
ment of his friends was worthy of the
I best days of the old dominion. He
J was the senior minority member of
, the senate committee on finance and
' held high place in many others of the
most Important committees. He was
j ' chairman of the committee of private
