I The Interstate Commerce commission met
Rat tno federal building yesterday and was In
Inwslon most of the day without
( reaching drflnlto conclusions on any
of tun cases involved. The first
loam iiilil was that of A. J.
Jc..it < n of Kcarnoy against tlio Union Pacific
Jon i lie Southern Pacific , alleging that the

. . fualnst Kcarnoy and other points in

jnni' ' ' .tlipr Interstate points and the Interests

! Judge Morrison was evidently in the dark
ns to that which was about to bo turned

I history of the federal building lias ever

I ' 1 he matter that had found its inception in

f , Jiri'si'iiti'd tln > comniprcial status of tlio case
: us vlowol by Mr. Ctiistin. Ho ripped up the
tii'ams of history and laid liaro many of the
loiiilimr ort'iita In the progress of the coun-
tr.v all HIP wa.v from the landing of Colum-
lius doxvn to the iirescnt timo. llo soared
nroiind among the s'liibcams and the clouds
in ties , ribine the fertility of the country ,
nnd when it came to the horrors that ho saw
Jj int' IUTOSS the path of the country's prepress
press in case the pnaent railroad rates con
tinue to pi-oval ! ho became very earnest.
Now ami then , however , ho lodged a pretty
veil directed blow.
When ho llnally got down to business ho
called as the first witness in the case Mr. .1.
11 Ixjthrop. manager of tlio Black Hills
branch of the Union Paclllc road , for the
imrposo of showing the actual cost per mile
of constructing the Kearney & Black Hills
Judge Kelley objoctcd to the introduction
of this testimony on the ground that the
ICearney & lilack Hills line was not the line
Implicated in the allegations made in the
complaint. Ho hold , finther. Unit the Kear
ney & Black Hills road was not completed at
the tlmo the charges ngalnst the Union
Mr liuatln held that ho wanted to show
by Mr I > athrop what thocostof the Kearney
& Black Illlls road was , and ho wanted to
show , further , that the Union Pacific com-
jinny hud Issued $ GOOlKK ) of Kearney Ac Black
llills ro.id bonds to its own stockholders
nnd the public had to pay Interest on thcso
bonds by pnj ing exorbitant rates on the
main line of the Union Pacific. Ho proposed
to show that the Union Pacific had built the
JUac-k Hills road for at least Sl.OOO.OOO les"
than the company claimed to have Invested
in It. The main line , ho hold , was burdened
with a thousand and ono schemes similar to
thia and tin.1 directors were attempting to
make the road pay dividends upon millions
of dollars not really represented , or Invested
in the road.
Alrlnc Jlluck lllllH History.
Chairman Morrison hold that the testi
mony going to show the cost of the Black
Hills branch would have but a slight bearing
upon the charges at Issue. Mr. Gus-
tin was permitted to ask Mr. Loth-
rep n number of questions about the Black
Hills line , but succeeded in bringing out
nothing of much consequence1 , excepting that
n majority of the Black Hills road .stock was
lield by the Union Pacille stockholders.
The commissioners gave Mr. Gustln con
siderable latitude , and lie branched off upon
cotton rates from the south to Kcarnoy.
Attorney Marquette objected to the bring
ing ill of matters that wore not spccllled in
I Mr Gnstln held that Inasmuch ns ho had
i employed the phrase "and ether interstate
points , " ho had a right to attack the rates
J in vogue to Kcarnoy from any pulnt within
f the toirltor.y of the United States ,
i Chairman Morrison stated that it was the
B duty of the commission to take into consid-
? cration all complaints with regard to unjust
I or illegal rates , but it had been the custom
ji. with the commission to take uu ono or two
cases at a time rather than to attack all the
j-J tiuds in the country at ono sitting. Ho
R therefore requested Mr. Gustln to confine
a' liia uvulonco to the charges contained In his
M-compl.unt until lie had finished it.
K 'I'll11I'd Aliiint Cotton Uiitm.
* Mr C.ustm Insisted that ho bo heard on
'f the cotton rates , however , and also re
' } quested the privilege of being sworn and
telling what ho knew about the cotton
t 'rules. Ho stated , after being sworn , that
; j if the railroads would make the same rate
J jior mlle per ton from Fort Worth. Tex. , to
f Kearney that now exists between Memphis ,
Tcnn . the rate for Kearney would bo L'O
cents per hundred , whereas it is at present
[ 70 cents.
I ' Do you think that the road ovsr which
j w receive eutton nt Kearney from Fort
Worth , Tex . should adopt the same rate per
< ' ton per mile as the roads between Memphis ,
i Tenu .and Boston ( " Inquired Mr. Morrison.
I "Yes , sir , I do , " said Mr. Gustin enorgetl-
i Air Gustln then presented two freight
i bills for freight charges upon machinery
4 which had been Hhipped from points in
I Illinois to Kearney. Ho held that tlio
charges were excessive and illegal. The
s lillls of lading wcro .submitted and accepted
? ns dot unioiitary evidence in the case. Mr.
4 Gustin r < sled his case at this point , and the
3 commu.su n took u recess for lunch.
B At the afternoon session Attorney Mar
ls | uottc. fur the defendants , introduced the
j ( iiintml reports of the Burlington and Union
9 Pacific mads for the past six years. Ho said
\ that the hchodulo of rates as submitted by
r Mr CiusMn was correct. That was all th.it
I the defendants cured to submit. The case
5 was closed \\ith the provision tint both Mr.
I ( instill uiid the defendants have permission
} to submit writtt-n arguments presenting their
I respective sulu.-i of the dispute.
I'alleil to ( \Vlluos9o9. .
J The sivmul ease begun by Mr. Gustin
* ngainst the I'nion Pacific and the Southern
X I'aelllc mads , in which rates on sugar from
1 western pt ints are made the grounds of co-
% plaint was called. Mr. Kelley , as attorney
6 for the Union Pacific and also representing
J tlio Southern Pacific , submitted un utllduvlt
i Hlgncd by the attorney for the Southern Pa
rt cillo btating that it was imitosslblo for the
T defendant company to got some very Import-
j nut wltnosses to Omalm at this timo. Mr.
P Sprcckcls of California Is suld to bo an im-
ij portant witness and ho is at present abroad
1 and his testimony cannot bo obtained until
S ho returns.
W Mr Kelley said that the Union Pacific
. ] company had been depending upon the
\ Southern Paclllc for a certain line of testi
mony that would be of vital interest in the
trial ot the case and ItvouU bo impossible
for the t'nion Pacific to undertake the case
Blnglo handed with anything like a fair
chance of getting itl the actual facts. He
therefore moved that tlio hoarlng bo con
tinued Ho also snidthls road would admit
that the rales from the Pacillo coast to
Kearney wow higher than from the coast to
Omaha , but tins wus forced upon the Union
Pacific by watnr competition coming by way
of Now Orlciuii and Now York.
llnd to Mf.l "Wntcr ItMtKi. "
Mr. Gustln asked the commissioners If a
railroad company had a right to cut rates to
long distance points below these which wcro
charged for nhortor hauls simply as u means
of computing with water rates.
"It has bison held at different times , " ald
Chairman Morrison , "that railroads have a
right to make special rates to certain points
where It Is ncc sary to do so In order to get
the business as ngalnst water competition.
It has also been held that thn road
making such a special rate is not obliged to
cut Its entire schedule for the entire line to
ngreo with tills special rate ; but thr > rate to
other points must be reasonable and just. A
railroad company may sco lit to carry goods
to n certain point at n very trilling profit
simply to get the business as against water
competition. It is claimed , for instance , that
these roads are obliged to ship sugar to
Omaha nt < V > crnta per hundred pounds or
lose all of the western business , because
sugar is brought around to Now York nnd
Now Orleans from thn Paclllc coast and
shipped to Omaha from the cast , cutting the
rates down to tins low point. "
"Why don't the same argument hold good
with regard to rates to Kearney ? " asked
"Well , that will remain for the evidence
in the case to elucidate. "
Decided to l'o tponn thn Ga e.
The chairman then explained that it would
bo a waste of time for the commissioners to
proceed with the hearing of the case , ceding
that the roads against which the charges
had been made were not ready to respond.
If the commission should go ahead and hear
only ono side of the case the roads might
refuse to obey any order that the commission
saw lit to issue and then the case would
hnvo to go to tlio courts for a
Html heariinr. In the courts the railroad
companies might introduce a line of testi
mony that would alter tlio status of the case
materially and the commission might not bo
uphold in Its order. For these reasons ,
Chairman Morrison said , tlio commission
had long since become convinced that It was
better to have a full and fair hearing of n
case before attempting to pass upon it or
issue any orders to the railroads implicated.
Ho held that it would bo best for Mr.
Gustin as well as the railroads against
which the irregularities were charged to
postpone the hearing until such time as all
the parties Interested could bo heard. The
ease was therefore postiwned until some
future date to bo determined by the com
Tliis brought the proceedings of the

I.tscoi.v , Nob. , May 10. [ Special Tele
gram to Tun HRK. ] Kccolver Macfiirland of
the Capital National bank proposes to test
the validity of the thousands of dollars
worth of worthless Western Manufacturing
company notes sold to various parties by C.
W.Moslicr. Soraotlmo slnco the Chemical Na
tional rnnk of Now York began suit ngalnst
the Capital National on two of thcso notes
for ? . * ,000 each , seeking to rnako the claim n
valid ono against the assets of the broken
bank because they had boon endorsed by
President Moshcr and sold by the Capital to
the Chomicnl. Today the receiver Hied his
answer setting up that the notes wcro not
a valid claim against the bank
for the reason that the Western Man
ufacturing company was composed of C. \ \ .
Moslior only , and was used by him to earn-
on "a" business for his solo use and profit ;
and that the notes were discounted by htm
as presilont of the bank for himself as the
Western Manufacturing company , and that
the notes were made out signed under his
direction ; that Mosticrdisc-ountcd more than
the amount of one-tenth of the capital stock
of the bank , or more than fcJO.UOO worth of
those notes , in violation of the law , and that
such facts were known to the plaintiff. Ho
therefore asks that the case bo dismissed as
against him as receiver of the bank.
