The trial of the ault of Ernest F. Wagner

In the district court yesterday.
In addition to his attorneys, Wagner was
represented by Thomas Q. Harrison, who
has not been admitted to the bar, but prac

opening statement to the jury Albertl's at

colleague. The fun began when Ovlde Vlen.
for the defense, would rise and object to
the questions in the examination of wit
nesses by counsel for the plaintiff. Hani
son would ask him if he was an attorney
and If he was not what right be had to ad
dress tha court. Vlen would then subside,
but wait hie opportunity to get back at
Harrison when he Interloped an objection,
asking his such a question as Harrison
had put to htm about being an attorney.
This was kept up on both idea until the
court Anally interfered and requested Vlen
and Harrison to restrain themselves.
The Jersey cow In dispute waa levied on
under a judgment secured against Wagner's
wife by John Beno A Co., and waa cold to
satisfy a judgment. Wagner claimed owner
ship of the cow. which, after being attached

tha value of which Wagner also sued. The
defense contended that when Wagner re

claimed that it waa the property of his

current resolution which had paased the
enat Indorsing the Hoar bill on strike
Injunctions and requesting members of
congress to vote for the measure. Strong
speeches wer made for the resolution by

by Temple and Lyman. There waa a strong
lobby of representative of the railroad
uniena preaent and It la claimed that they
had secured a promts from Tempi that
he would not . apeak against the measure,
and this resulted In much bitterness. Dun
ham moved a substitute which merely ex
pressed confidence In the Iowa congres
sional delegation and had the effect of de
feating the purpose of the resolution. This
waa adopted hy a vote of (2 to 28, and af
terwards the .resolution as adopted waa
passed by a vote of 49 to 40. The resolu
tion will go back to the senste, where It
la expected it will be not concurred in.
Strengthen Interstate Commerce Aet.
A resolution of almilar Import waa In
troduced In the senate by Senator Trewin
Whereas, It Is generally believed that the
effectiveness of the Interstate commerce
law has been seriously Impaired by certain
decisions of the federal courts and that
the law In lte present state Is practically
Inoperative In remedying the evil of the
transportation service of the country, which
was the purpose of its enactment; and
Whereas, A bill designated as H. R. 8,837
and S. F. S.S7S, known as the Nelson-Corliss
bill, is now pending In the two houses of
congress to amend the Interstate commerce
act by conferring upon the commission
created thereby additional powers for the
purpose of enabling it to enforce the pro
visions of the act, and giving Its rulings
Immediate effect pending review by the
court; therefore be it
Resolved, by the senate, the house con
curring. That the senators and represen
tatives In congress from this state be and
are hereby respectfully requested to give
eald measure careful consideration and to
uae their efforts In every proper way to
to secure Its early enactment, or the enact
ment of some other measure which will
afford the relief sought.
Woman Suffrage Wine.
The senate passed ths resolution calling
for a vote on an amendment to the consti
tution permitting women to vote. The

Mine Bxploalon Report.
The commission to Investigate mine ex
plosion made a report to the governor
today, recommending the following:
In all mines where coal Is blasted from
the solid, competent persons shall be em
ployed to examine all ahota before they are
charged. Said examiners are to have the
power to prohibit the charging and firing
of any shot which. In their Judgment, ia
unsafe. Before entering upon the d'a
charge of their duties said examiners shall
give proof of their competency to the state
mine inspector of the district In which the
mine where they are employed is located.
The state mine inspector is to have the
power to refuse to give permission to any
person to act as shot examiner who in his
Judgment is not sufficiently competent, or
he may revoke the permission granted
should it appear that a shot examiner is
negligent or careless In ths performance
of his duties.
The miner shall keep his working place,
and the operator the entries, as free from
dust as practicable, the entries to be
sprinkled as often as neceeaary to keep
them In a damp condition.
Only sand soil or clay shall be used for
tamping and shot holes shall be tamped
solidly from the powder to the mouth of
the hole, whether the aqulb or fuse ia used
to Ignite the powder. Any shot having
blown out the tamping at the first firing
shall not be recharged and fired the second
In addition to the above, such rule re
garding the use of powder, the preparing
and placing of shots, shall be adopted by
the operators and miners of each mine
so the blasting of coal may be done with
the greatest possibly aafety.
More than 14,0u0 persons are engaged In
the mining Industry of Iowa. The commis
sion suggests that enough copies of this
report be ordered printed so a copy may be
placed In the hands of every person con.

Industry of this state.
