' In regard to tno railroad situation in the
west the comiiiissloncr says : "Repeated and
ruinous rntu wars dcst-uctlvo uliKo to the
, intoiusts of the railroads nnd the shiuping
public , hnvo prevailed to > nti nbirmlng extent
tin ouuhout the west in recent years. The
unparalleled development of the vast re
sources of tlio western ctates and territories
has attracted capital there , and the railroads
have opened inviting fields to Investors. As
, a result railroad lmiidin < . ' has been carried
on fur in advance of thu needs of
the country. Parallel lines and unproductive
feeders have been constructed and expensive
terminal facilities. With the opening of
nearly every through line complications hnvo
arisen nnd competition has been stimulated
to thu point of annihilating profits and often
producing ruinous lasses. That unwise or
perverse management utibvorlfj legitimate-
and healthful competition into unreasoning
and 'destructive warfare IB not infrequently
' ' plaihly apparent , but Itnowlcdgo 6f this fact
brings no relief to the lessening revenues of
* warring companies. Thuso rate wurs are "In
many , if not most cases devoid of palliation
or excuse , inanguiuled without reasonable
cntiso'nnd vindictively prosecuted with uttei
disregard of their disastrous effects upon the
interests of the companies engaged and the
business public. They destroy or Imperil the
value of railroad securities , impose unjust
burdens upon the commerce of competing
sections , prevent stability ia business and
1 render thn profits of producer und trader
ullUo uncertain.
"I do not agree with the claim so persist
ently mndu by railroad managers and their
organs and satellites that the recent losses
sustained in the railroad business are plainly
dull to the restrictive laws which have ol
lilto been enacted by congress and in many
' "of the western states. In boinu states , nota-
* v'nbly in lowu , it is undoubtedly true that
laws have uecn enacted which nro unjubt to
the railroads and injurious to public interests
and which ought to bo speedily modified or
repealed.
"Most of the legislation for the regulatioi
of railway traffic within the stales lias beci
. wisely conservative and was as surely do
'innnded for the protection of the public
against unjust charges und discriminations
i in local trade us was the intcr-stato eom-
> inorco law to protect commerce between the
states. The theory that the recogni/.ed laws
of tradu would ultimately so far prevail ns
to sufficiently regulate the management o
railroads iu the Interests of the public has
, not proved to bo a correct one. Croats huvo
demonstrated that thcso laws have become
pructlcully inoperative , und that it Is neces
sary to invoke- legislation to supplement the
operation of natural laws , establishing leglti
nmto rights and curblnir the unwurrantci
pretensions of transportation companies.
"Tltp exceedingly unfortunate situatiot
which has of late prevailed In the west am
northwest presents n vlvlii illustration uiu
I gives an expensive , tlmuuli apparently un
heeded lesson as to the effect of unregulatci
-competition. Unless conditions are changet
through thu voluntary actions of the rail
companies ur by legislative interference
inl relations will be seriously dls
turbed uim , lasting injuries inflicted upon
1 railroads und upon every department o
trade.
i. tI bollevo that In many sections of th
west , conspicuously in thu states of lowaniu
Kansas1 ; the mileage of the railroads I
greatly In excess of thn legitimate needs o
the carrying trade. If this be true , thoi
I niriiiy Investments in railroad propertie

I allrfirH , neither the ueoplo nor the railroad
compunicaiuro wholly to blame. Doth hnva
contributed to brlnft it about. The people

i.'urilt 'railroad ' companies Imvo been unduly

v a ] irublcm dlftlcult of Kolutlon , It Is safe to
snyjhiit thu remedy docs not lie In the levy
Ipp ot extortionate charges or the waging o
< muklvss rate wurs.
' 'Tlio t-oeurity of the railway system lies In
administering It with careful respect to Jus
lieu and the public welfare. If its oppressive
hand is laid too heavily upon the people , ru
Vcngu and , revolt will bo sure to follow.

Both the Interests of the railroads and the
I public , says thu commissioner , suffer fron
the fact that railroad manairora devote thai
'energies too largely to securing 'trado fron
competing centers , und do not BUftlctcntlj
encourage the development of local truffle.
The commissioner dwells at length un the
jirvblciii of securing to the government the
; lniymont of the amounts duo fiom the
bonded rpuds. Ho says he has come to tlm
l * > Uelublon that the most feasible plan to DO
. ; idoptod U to grant a reasonable extension o
Umu with u reduced rale of Interest , und re
qulro tlin payment of n Certain per coat o
Vho gross earnings of the rouds , to ba uppllci
Iu the liquidation of. their indebtedness to
the government. This would relieve the
railroad companies from the embarrass
| wont that might come to then
, , were they required to pn >
aUod BUUIK at stated periods. Ii
( times of business depression when the re
uclpU wuro light their obligations to pa )
would bu correspondingly ruuuvtd , while It
iroaperous years they could afford to mnko
ncrenscd payments. The government has
no clnlm upon the earnings of thcso non-
subsidized lines , and trnfllo mny bo diverted
cither naturally or with n purpose from the
tided to the non-aided lines , nnd various
changes In axpcnso accounts mny bo entered
up against the aided portions thnt should bo
chargeable to the non-aided portions.
It i apparent llmt the subsidized rondi
can not discharge their oblignUons to the
government at maturity.
It Is the commissioner's opinion thnt It
would bo wise for congress to pass nn net
plvlng n reasonable extension ot the time ,
reducing the rate of Interest to 3 or 4 per
cent , requiring thnt the earnings from all
government transportation by the subsidized
companies en nil lines operated by them ,
whether aided or non-nlded , Rhould bo ap
plied to the payment of any Interest or prin
cipal duo or to become duo within the fiscal
rear in xyhlch the services might be rcn-
lercd , prohibiting the payment ofuny divi
dends by the subsidized companies unless
such company shall hnva paid nil Interest on
its bonded debt having u lion prior to the
government , and nil matured Indebtedness
nnd Interest then due , nnd such n percentage
of the gross cnrnlnus of thu subsidized lines
ns bv careful estimates would realize sums
sufficient to pay the accruing Interest nnd
rnlso a sinking fund that would meet thu
principal of Uio debts nt their maturity.
Said companies should also bo permitted to
refund the first mortgage bonds under such
provisions ns would prevent nny Increase In
I ho debt which Is allowed priority over the
debt duo to the United States.
The commissioner makes recommenda
tions of various kinds , nmoiiL them one that
nil the nccounU of these railroads bo ren
dered I hrough his oftlco Instead of going
direct to the different departments , ns in the
past , ns ho says It is Important that thcro bo
some bureau of the government in which
can be found full Information ns to the
nccountH between the railroads and the
United States.
Thorn are now millions of dollars of unset
tled bills pigeon-holed In various depart
ments of the treasury and It. Is due to thu
rntlroau companies that all these accounts
bo promptly adjusted and thnt such
Bums a * nro legally their due bo credited or
paid them. It Is also to the Interest of thn
government to know the exact condition of
its accounts with these companies.

or at least some settlement of the dllllimlty
which has all but disruutud the association.
At. the meeting tcwlny there was u full repre

which time- his term of ofllco shall expire ;
thnt for the purpose of eluding a chairman a
meeting ofjho executive couiinittoo shall bo
called on the second Tuesday In December ,
After the meeting President Cable of the
Hock Island said : "Tho whole affair has
been unfortunate , but is now settled to the
satisfaction of all. The difficulty nroso last
spring when the association adopted u new
agreement , but did not elect a chairman
unuer i's terms. Air. Abbott had
been employed for three years , or
until DocDinber 31 , Holt That hu was chair
man under the old tiKreomunt and not under

Chairman Abbott , who , during the whole
trouble , has preserved the 'strictest silence ,
to-day expressed himself as well pleased at
the rnitcome. Hu had been so .situated tliat
, ho could not resign , as some of the roads
Claimed no hud nothing from which to re

CHICAGO , Sept. 30. The intcr-stato com
merce commission mot hero this morning and
began the hearing of a number of cases. The
most important ca so was that of the Inter
state Commerce liailvvay association nguiust
the Chicago i Alton road. Tha complaint
set fortti that tills road bad mauu a contract
with a syndicate of cattle dealers at Kansas
City for shipments east of a largo unmber of
cattle , which practically amounts to n rebate.
The matter was urgueil pro and con at great
length.
Chairman Walker , of the Inter Stale Com
merce Hallway association , explained how
through rates are mndo from shipping points
in thu west thwugh Kansas City , with -the
privilege of stopover for sale at that point.
It cuttle arc not sold there they ore sent on
to Chicago on the original billing. At , pres
ent , he said , much of ttiU stock is shipped in
private cars , on which indongo Is collected
and line cars uro not much used. lie said
the American Lave * Stock Commission com
pany had made contracts with the Alton to
use 400 of ttioir cars , for which they nro to
pay ? ( ! a month rental. This is In the nature
of a rebate , nnd if nil lines should do the
same It would destroy trade.
Attorney Hrown. lor the Alton , denied the
right of the Inter-state Uuilroad association
to make complaint , on the grouud that it
was neither a real nor an artificial pot-son.
Ho acknowledged the contracts , but reserved
the right to withhold them. Ho aid not care
to have theAlton's contract niado public for
the sntUfnetlon of the curious.
Chairman " Walker replied with nn argu
ment to prpvo the legitimacy of the complaint
and his ussuuiatlan ,
After recess .luugo Cooley announced that
the question would bo talton under advise
ment , us to , whether the case In its present
form should bo considered by the commis
sion. The decision on this point will bo si veil
to-morrow morning.
The case of the Chicago , Kansas City &
Nnhraska and the Uock Isinna against the
Chicago & Alton occupied the rouinmdor of
thu day and will bo continued to-morrow.

stock stopover privilege * ! at Kansas City.
Chairman Midgloy , of the Southwestern

Hutchison , republic-mi , cnndldnto for gov
ernor , mndo his firot regular speech of the
campaign nt Vllllscn to-day. It was a very
long document , requiring nt least two hours
for delivery. The olomosynnry Institutions
of the state arc reviewed at length , showing
that nearly $ .20,000,000 hnvo been spent upon
them In addition to tlio war nnd defense fund
nnd the regular expanses to sarry on the ma
chinery of state government , all of which
has been dona upon n stnto levy at no time
Creator than % mills , and the state is now
entirely out of debt. The history of prohibi
tion Is reviewed , and upon the question of
future action , Mr. Hutchison ny B :
"Ami now wo nro confronted ngaln in
Iowa by the saino old bourbon principles of
the democratic party on n platform whoso
cry is for n license in every township iu the
stnto. Think of It , citizens of
Iowa. Yonder , n few dnys ago , in
the now procnerous municipality of Sioux
City , whnru the saloons ut ono time-battled
against the laws of our state and against
virtue , manhood nnd decency , until it por-
potrnlnd the most vllliunoUB outrage that
was over cnlculuted to call forth the wrath of
the moral people there , when the bravo soul
of Uov. George Haddock wont out to the God
who iravo it under the command of tlio
saloon ussuBsin , the democratic inrtynevcr-
tholots , met ia convention and resolved In
favor of this cursed barnacle , which modern
civilization , as constituted In Iowa , Is deter
mined to destroy. Why , Ifsecins'to me , that
tills net would rlso up before the iiooplo ot
Iowa with such nn overwhelming influence
that they would nt once exclaim : 'Wo , the
people of Iowa , wtio stumped the saloon u
curse , the enemy of civilization , the corrup
tion of our politics , the foe of mankind , , say
to the party that convened in that city where
George Haddock was murdered by n saloon
keeper , that wo will so thoroughly demon
strate to you that you will never
forget It , that the murder ot George Hud-
docic is sacicd to us ; that wo look upon his
blood as the seal which pledged ns to the
everlasting destruction and condemnation of
the saloon in lowu. "
On the question of railway control tbo gist
of the senator's remarks are contained in the
following paragraph , which comes after an
exhaustive review of the situation ;
"Upon these grounds it became necessary
"
in lown , for tlio" sake of our local trufllu und
the internal welfare of our state , to proviuo
n good , vital and effective law such ns wo
provided in the twenty-second general as
sembly , and which I believeis proving a
great benefit to the , people of Town , ana
which 1 believe Is necessary to put in a use
ful , working condition our tuto railway com
mission , and which nlso was necessary n n.
proper supplement to the Interstate com
merce law. Its featurein some respects I
know are claimed by niilway offi
cials to bo too unyielding nnd too
arbitrary , but I think it mny
safely be Bald that it contains no principle
not heretofore embodied in previous legisla
tion or that cannot bu found in the laww"of
surrounding states. I think , too. that somu
of those laws will prove the fact tha ) , ours is
le s severe than theirs , Tills is especially
true of the laws of Illinois , of many , or some
of the eastern ntntos , and of the "English
railway ami navigation act , , which is to Kag-
land what our inter-stato commerce law is to
us. And even the inter-stato commprce law
is quite ns rigid'ln iniiii.v pf its rcqulretriqnts.
This statement , ! believe , railway officials
will admit when they once realize that the
people of Iowa haves every desire to legislate
"
late in a spirit of Justice. In" thin railway
ago , to which I hnvo referred before , the
pcojilo have found it necessary that these
laws should have been enacted , thnt they have
come to stay , that they will stay , nnd that
wo believe fair-minded railway mannfjcrs
who are willing to credit thu intclli ent pub
lic for honesty and fair dealing recognreo it. "
The speech closed with allusions nt length
to the tariff , pension and other national
luestions.

"Lay mo down onsy boys , I'm dying , "
was what Dick Hill , nn ox-saloonkccpor ,
said whoa a crowd ot men carried him into
Donovan's saloon ut Klovonth nnd l > edge nt
10 o'clock last , night. Tlian they deposited
his bruised , limp form on n couple of tables
nnd sent for it physlolmi , while hu. relapsed
Into a stnto of Insensibility , from which ho
has notslnco recovered.
One of the physicians in attendance upon
Jnck Klnney , who lay on u billiard table n
block away , was the nearest medical man ,
nnd he was quickly on the spot
"Tho man has no broken bones , nor Is ho
badly bruised , but ho Is Injured Internally , "
said he. "Ho must bo sent home , " and to
his mother's residence on Sixteenth and
Sherman avenue Dick was taken ,
Dick is the man who formerly conducted
thu Lake View saloon north of the cltv , nnd
wlille oncaKod in the uilxologluul business
formed the ncu.ualntit.nco of several fast
women. Among the number was a Mrs.
Fields , who ut present is supposed to conllno
her attentions to u youug man who performs
janitorial duties at the Omaliii Medical and
Surgical limtltutc. Hut last night she wont
out for a rldo with Dick.
Hight at this point It may not bo out of or
der to state that Hlchard mndo n mistake in
going out with her , for when it comes to
bui'fry riding or traveling In hacks she has
proven herself u veritable hooJoo. This
is the second tlmo that she has
caused the death or serious Injury to her
traveling companion. Her first victim was
a prostitute , who , in her compiny , was at
tondlug the funeral of the late Sandy Forbes.
On the road to the cemetery the horses ran
away nnd overturned the carriage , killing
Mrs. Fields' companion. Mrs. Fields , how
ever , escaped without serious injury. Last
night she was not so fortunate , for If reports - .
ports bo true she will In future look at tuo
affairs of this llfo with ono oyu less.
In company with her and a little girl , Dick
slnrtod out for a drive with a horse and
buggy. While going down Dodge street the
unluiul took fright nt n passing cable car
and at once began a mad gallop down the
street. At the corner of Eleventh and
Dodge the buggy was overturned and the
occupants dashed with terrific force ngninst
the curb. The little girl was not injured ,
but the woman nnd Hill were hurt as above
stated. Mrs. Fields was taken to Uoyd's
drug store , but wishing to avoid publicity ,
her friends spirited her nxvay before she
could bo found by thn rouortors.

CHICAGO , Sept. 30. [ Special Telegram to
THE BEE. ] The Hov. Ur. Charles O'Hcilloy ,
of Detroit , treasurer of tlio American branch
of the Irish National league , is in this city
to-day.
Dr. O'lloilioy was willing to discuss the
National league and its prospects and wished
to deny that the. Cronin murderers and the
Clau-nn-Gnol disruption would in any way
affect the league.
"The Clun-na-Gnol " ho said "is
- - , , not con
nected in any way with the league nor with
the Parnell home rule movement. Quarrels
in the Clan-nu-Gnol do not affect the league. "
"Was not the fund raised ut the Clan-na-
Gael. picnic at Ogden's grove scat to you as
treasurer ' . ( tf the league ! "
"Yes , and n handsome fund It was , too.
But I did not understand that to bo
u Clan-nf-Gacl ) demonstration. It was ,
as I understood it to be , the usual 15th of
August picnic of the Irish societies. 1 was
invited to speak there and I would have
spoken had not previous engagements pre
vented me , and 1 most certainly wou'.d not
huvo spoken under the auspices nor by the
invitation of the Clan-na-Gael. "
"How nbout the chnrgo made thnt the
league funds are being used for the defense
of the Cronin suspects i"
"i'lioro is no truth in it. The very system
of the National league precludes nny misuse
of its fnadS. At the national convention of
the league each local nnd state hrnncn is en
titled to representation solely in proportion
to the umount of money it may have con
tributed. So you see what a watchful and
jealous eye will bo kept upon my reports of
receipts by each branch of the league in
order that each may bo allowed
proper representation. Some time ago § 10-
OI'O ' was raised here in Chicago and forwarded
direct to Mr. Parnell. When the convention
met the loenl branches tried to claim repre
sentation for this amount , but of course it ,
did not appear in my books. As to my dis
bursements I show rcceiptB for every cent
received by me. Tlio money is sent to Mr.
Puraell and all accounted lor. "
"When will the next convention bo hold ? "
"It has not been called yet. It will bo hold
whenever Mr. Parnell thinKs proper. Wo
defer to his wishes. I imagine n convention
will soon 10 called. "
"What do you think of Mr. ParnoU'B situa
tion ! "
"I think it very good. Ho certainly has
not lost anything in piestigo and he has
probably gained. No matter what the find
ing1 ot the commission may bo now , it
cannot affect Mr. P.iraell. I think Mr. Par
nell nnd the cause of homo rule stronger than
over. "
"Wnat effect will the Cronin murder have
on the Irish movement in America } "
"Not a particle. It will be a mure inci
dent , like the 'Molly Maguiro' muni era in
Pennsylvania some years ago. This murder
is the outcome of secret spolotlos. It is not
the act In any way of the Irish people. Tlio
spirit of the Irish people is opposed to mur
der. I know an attempt will bo
made anil is being made to
throw some odium on the Irish
race , but It will fail. It makes no uilTeroiico
cither , whether the murder was the result of
n local personal enmity or the action of Camp
- ! ) , or of the Clan-na-Gnul. The Irish race
can not bo held responsible for it. The Clan-
na-Gaol Is a small fraction of the Irish people
ple and the quarrels within it uro not the
concern of the Irish as a race nor of the
homo rule movement. "
Father O'Uellloy said that ho would not
confer with any of thu Irishmen of local
prominence and would leave on the noon
train.
