Kentucky Bailroad Commission Asks an
EIGHT COMBINING LINES ARE INVOLVED
Charges that They Seek to Eliminate
Competition aad Ineieaae Rate,
Over Immense Territory,
' to People's Hart.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 20. The Interstate
Commerce commission today made public
the complaint of the railroad commission
of Kentucky against the Atlantic Coast
Line Railroad company, the Louisville ft
Nashville railroad, the Southern Railway,
the Southern Railway in Kentucky, the
Southern Railway In Indiana, the Cincinnati,
New Oi leans aV Texaa Faclflo Rail , com
pany, the Cincinnati - Southern hallroad
company and the Chicago, .Indianapolis
Louisville Railroad company.
The complaint asks, for an inquiry a to
whether the contracts between these roads
constitute an unlawful combination.
The complaint says the roads cover all
Important railroad points and all railroad
lines in a territory aggregating 25,000 miles,
with an operating income of over $30,000,000
annually, and charges that J. P. Morgan
A Co. have secured practical control and
management of the affairs.
The capitalization of the defendant road
la stated to amount to at least $1,000,000,000.
It is alleged the t defendant companies
nave not filed with the Interstate Com
merce commission, as required by law,
copies of the contracts and agreements. It
Is charged that arrangements eZiBt amount
ing to an agreement by which all freights
of all the roads shall be pooled so as to
prevent competition. As a result It is
feared Tales will be advanced, communities
discriminated against and freight will be
routed over one or another line so as to
maintain .Increased earnings and create
fictitious earnings to give fictitious values.
The combination, the commission charges,
la In violation of both the letter and spirit
of the Jaws of the, United 8tates and of the
several atatea Involved.
The Interstate Commerce commission will
Immediately, notify all concerned of the
complaint and will probably arrange for. a
hearing not earlier than December.

Pacific had Just been reorganized and was
not in a position to join such ascheme.
He did not know of any Great Northern
directors making heavy purchases of North
ern Pacific stock In order to control that
line. At the time of the right for control
he and his friends held from 133,000,000 to
136,000,000 of common stock of the Northern
Pacific. On May S, after price were above
par, and it was -evident that an attempt to
secure control waa under war, he called
the attention of his associates to the mat
ter, and. no more stock Svas sold by them.
The Morgans up to that time had no sus
picion of any attempt to raid the atock.
He explained that the Northern Pacific
holdings mentioned did not include those of
J. P. Morgan & Co.
He told how at thia time he and hla as
sociates first thought of placing their
Northern Pacific stock with a holding com
pany, aa was being done with their Great
Northern stock. Nothing definite, however,
waa decided on. At that time his party
held some $20,000,000 and Morgan held about
the same amount. The capital of the pro
posed general holding company was first
placed at 4100,000,000 In the preliminary dis
cussion. Only a few individuate were at
first Interested and there waa much hesita
tion over any holding company In which all
Great Northern shareholder might not par
ticipate on. an equal haa!. Such action
would mean That the Great Northern hold
ings would amount to $225,000,000.
The Morgan and Hill Interests In the
Northern Pacific, controlled that company
ifter the redemption of the preferred stork.
Then, la estimating the Northern Securities
capital, they thought $300,000,000 would suf
fice, but the amount waa finally 3xI ut
$400,000,000, although the smaller figure was
considered sufficient as late as Decem'ier,
1901. It was Intended, however, lo' cover
everything possible and avoid amending the
articles. ' . ..
- 'Hopes to Sav Raid.
After the purchase of the Burlington and
of the large blocks of Northern Pacific
stock, the purpose of the Northern Securi
ties company was to put the stock where
It could not again be raided.

He Insisted that the Great Northern was

the southern lines, r.dtl.ig that the actual

business on the Great Northern, would raiiu

There was never any Intention of ne
stroylng competition between ih Northern
Pacific and Great Northern by th; organisa
tion of the Securities compauy. Very little
business on those lines, he said, wis free
from competition with other ino., so that
even If they wished to destroy competition
their utmost efforts could not effect ten
per cent of the business. He t m vt d com
petition was as full and free 'is at any t'me
in the. last twenty years.
"Neither the Great Northern company nor
Its officers aa such," added Mr. Hill, "had
anything to do with the ganliUian ct the

purely a matter for the shareholders tr,d
not more than eleven out of 1,800 took part

The names of these eleven as he remem

"My sales and those of everyone else, to

of any kind attached to the sale and no
agreement or condition wa& ever contem

Induce shareholders to sell to tho Northern
Securities company, be said, and ho had not
expected that so large a number ot share
holders would transfer their shares. He
believed that about 1,000 shareholders had
disposed of their stock.
The circular of the Northern Securities
company to Great Northern sharchoMjrs
was again put In evidence and Mr. Hill said
he received numerous requests for rdvlce
and that he personally Issued a circular In
answer, telling shareholders It waa a natter
for each to decide for himself.
Solicitor General Richards began a cross
examination, first taking up these letter.
Mr. Hill admitted that all the Great North
ern stock had not been placed In the North
ern Securities company, because It had not
been thought necessary. The price of the
remaining stock was so high they bad no
fear of a further raid. Nearly half the
Great Northern atock came in, and then a

LONDON, Oct. 20. Gerald Balfour, presi
dent of the bosrd of trade, announced In
the House of Commons today that an even

the government's shipping agreement.
The arrangement with the International
mercantile marine, he added, did not In
volve any additional burden on the ex
chequer. Mr. Hanbury, president of the board of
agriculture, said negotiations concerning
Argentine cattle were not concludud, but
the Importation of live cattle from that
republic would be permitted so soon is the
Argentine regulations afforded security

Mr. Chamberlain, replying to a question,
said the government had not fixed tho

In outlining the Sullivan matter Mr.
O'Brien alleged that Patrick Nolan, one ot
the government's witnesses In a certain
peculation In Dublin and Sllgo, although
he swore at one trial that a letter purport
ing to h&ve been written by Mr. MacHale,
president of the United Revolutionary
league, arranging for a murderous outrage,
was In Sullivan's handwriting, yet after
ward avowed that he had been employed to
shield Sullivan from Justice by discrediting
the evidence of other witnesses, and that
Sullivan was guilty of forgeries.
He said Irish member feared Dublin cas
tle waa trying to hush the Sullivan caso
up, but it was of the same class as the Pig
gott forgeries against Parnell. Mr. O'Brien
alleged the government had packed the jury
to acquit Sullivan and had then spent an
enormous sum to shelter him from Justice.
The attorney general for Ireland, J. At
kinson, charged that the facts ot the esse
had been misrepresented and taunted Mr.
O'Brien with being too cowardly to bring
this caae to the law courts.
Mr. O'Brien's motion for an adjournment
was rejected by 215 to 117.
Mr. Wyndham explained that It was Im

Afjbut the only time when the American
people study statecraft la during a political
campaign. No campaign should be abusive.
Unless there are Issues between the parties
there Is nothing to try. If the only question

Both parties complain thia year ot great
lethargy and apathy on the part of the
people. The reason Is simple. There la no
issue between the parties. The republican
party presents its time-honored principles
of sound money, protection for American
labor, and a conservatively liberal policy
towards the people Inhabiting our insular
possessions. Our political opponents pre
sent nothing In opposition. Gentlemen of
the Jury, there Is no case to try.
The only criticism I have to offer tonight
of our opponents Is this: "They seem to be

MINE WORKERS MEET
(Continued from First Page.)
In our land who works for a livelihood.
When the history ot the struggles of tollers
shall be written Its pages will record no
event more Important, no principle more
aliy defended, , no battle more bravely
fought than the contest which I earnealy
hc.pe Is now about to be happily ended.
It Is not my purpose to enumerate the Im
portant events which have now passed Into
history. Imprinted, indelibly upon tho hearts
of our people are the memories of suffer
ings and hardships which have been and
are being endured. For- live long month
the eyes ot tin nation have been centered
upon your action's and It is a pleasure to
say that the great- heart of the American
reople . throbbed - in sympathy with .. you.
t Is, of course, a source of deep regret that
the millions ot under-paid workmen of our
great cities should be the most acute suf
ferers by reason of this contest between
ourselves, and eun, employer. But strange
us It may appear, hundreds upon hjndreds
of those rwho suffered most from lack of
fuel sent word ef conjmendatlon and en
couragement uAtin, in many Instances,' de
clared that -thei Woyld endijrs any priva
tion in order J,hat the miners and their
families might secure a sufficient' wage to
enable them .to enjoy a little happiness and
sunshine Instead of the gloom and sadness
which ha been thel,lot.for many years.
The debt of gratitude we owe our fellow
worker in this.nd other lands, the debt
of gratitude we, .owe a generous public and
a friendly press who have supported and
sustained us during this memorable strike,
can never be deqjateiy repaid. '
For our opponents we entertain no feeling
of malic. While they hav maligned our
characters, . impugned our motives and
sought to win victory by. methods which
we tthould scorn to use, . yet on this day,
when we have' secured an avenue of re
dress, on this day, when the realization of
our hopes and ambitions seems near, when,
the prospect of a brighter and happier fu
ture seems assured, we should hold out to
them the hand of friendship and ask them
to Join us -In providing for such business
relations as shall for all time establish
peace and tranquillity tn the coal Melds.
The day Is pant when great organizations
of capital can maintain the ..false position
that their employes shall be denied the
right to organise Into compact belle, and
speak through (he organization of which
they are members. . We recognize the right
of capital to consolidate, to federate and to
speak and act throjgh It organisation, but
In according these rights and privileges lo
capital we demand and shall assert the
same privileges for those who toll.
No Inecbnct.able Conflict.
Between the combination of capital on
the one hand and the organization of labor
on the other, there should be and need be
no irreconcilable conflicts; each is a factor
in the economic development of our civili
sation and the application of business judg
ment and plain common sense by each
would enable them to work In harmony.
While the Interests of labor and capital
are not by any meana Identical, they are
nevertheless reciprocal; each Is dependent
upon the other,, and under our form of
government one cannot proper without the
other. Abraham Lincoln truly said that
"capital Is tike frulf of labor and could not
exist if labor had not first existed;, labor
therefore dexerves the first consideration."
That this fundamental principle will be
recognised by the tribunal selected by the
president of the United States I have no
reason to doubt.
The grave question which you have been
called upon to cpnslder today, demands and
must receive your most careful thought,
personally, 1 would have preferred an ad
juatment of. the- difficulties existing In the
anthracite field by conference with the
anthracite mine owners and without, the
Intervention ot agencier, not directly In
volved, but I recoKiilse the fact that rela
tions between ourselves and the operators
have been o strained aa to render direct
negotiations at this time Impossible. If
the consequences of this strike affected only
the Interests ot the operator and mine
worker there would be leas reason for the
Intervention of a third party, but the fact
that a coal famine waa upon the people
of eaatern and seaboard states, and threat
ened to become a national calamity, Justi

Aa Athletle Event.
You want, everybody wants, brain and
muscle, wind and stamina,' and can get
them If fed properly. Thia is an athletic
age. The man er woman who Is weak or
sickly, is not In the race; success socially
or In business gees only to the strong and
healthy. It Is largely a matter of choice
with anyone for proper living, and proper
food will bring the prise.
An athlete iu Chicago tells of the good
results he obtained from proper food; he
says: "Last spring I began to train bard
to become an athlete in track events and
to grow stronger; I now know that what
strength and victories I have secured Is

The' proposition submitted fnr your con

and In It., detail may not meet with the
unanimous approval of our people, but It
Is Immeastireably better, as now presented,
than when originally offered by the repre

firm In my conviction that the prompt ac
ceptance of this proposal will secure to the
anthracite mine workers and th'iee de
pendent upon them a greater measure of
justice than they could attain bv continu

acceptance of this proposition Will secure
to the mine workers u greater degree of
justice than they have enjoyed In the past.

men, with all the earnestness of w-hich I
am possessed 1 urge that you give your
approval to the action of your executive
officers, who have recommended acceptance
of tfie proposition that th strike be de

work In the positions and working places
occupied by them prior to the inauguration
of the strike, and that nil questions at
t,ue be submitted for adjustment to the
tribunal selected by the president "of the
The address was followed with the closest
attention. Those who expected him to tell
all he knew of the situation with reference
to the arbitration committee, and the ques
tion ot having all the men obtain their
former places were disappointed, as he re
served this for his later remarks when the
question was actually before the convention.
At various stsges he was applauded, but
when he urged the delegates to. adopt the
recommendations of the executive board to
call off the strike and send all the miners
to work In the positions they occupied be
fore the dispute started, the . noise was
Move to Accept t'oinmlaalon.
The moment he finished a Wllketbarre
delegate was on his feet to move that the
recommendations be adopted.
If this, bad been acted upon at once the
strike would have been off and the con
vention's work done, but those In opposition
would not have It that way. They wanted
to debate the matter, and kept the talK
going until the adjournment after 5 o'c'ock.
A Panther Creek engineer was the first to
take the floor in opposition to accepting
the plan until he had some assurance that
they would be reinstated In their old posi
tions. The companies have declared, he said,
they will not dismiss the men now cm
ployed and place strikers in their places.
A number of other delegates spoke along
the same lines and then still more 'con
fusion resulted over the presence of persons
who were not delegates.
One delegate took a strong position:
"We do not know whether Baer, Olyphant
or Markel is In the ball ready to vote," he
After some lime President Mitchell again
straightened matters out by requesting all
excepting newspaper men and delegates to
leave the hall. About half of those present
Then the debate was resumed, but before
It had proceeded many minutes, a delegate
demanded that the credentials of all those
In the building be examined.
This was done, and then a motion was
made to reconsider the vote by which the
newspaper men were permitted to remain.
The motion was defeated.
President Mitchell then requested the cor
respondents not to mention the name of
any delegate In his report on the ground
that it might injure him In obtaining work.
Thia ended the debate on the correspond

The only delegate In the convention who

tions with ub. but through intermediaries
we have received assurance that they are
going to meet the Ixsue fairly, that they
are not dlaposed to blacklist the men, that
they do not propose to be vindictive, that
as far as possible men are to be returned
to their old places.
It may take some time before that can be
brought about and it may be that some few
men will not be restored to their former
positions at all.- When you vote on this
proposition you muet do It with as full a
knowledge of the situation as I can give
Now, let me emphasize one point: While
the poorest boy thut worked In a breaker
la as dear to tis as the man who ran the
best engine; while we shall try with all the
power we have . to get every man that
atruck back to his old Job, we will make
special efforts for none and show special
favors to none. We want the engineers,
firemen, pumpmen. Inspectors and bosses to
So back, but we do not want them to go
ack one bit more than the little breaker
. There waa no single class of workmen
who went' out on a sympathetic strike.
Every man who struck, struck for wages;
he struck for exactly the same thing the
miner and th mine laborers struck for.
Will Protect All Victim.
As far as It Is within the power of the
union we shall afford protection to every
man, union or nonunion, who went out on
strike with vis. Hut. gentlemen, it may be
true that some will be sacrificed, and much
aa we shall regret that I desire to aay that
no battle was ever fought, no victory was
ever won, that did not carry with It some
victims. I.Ives have been lost to gain the
moet brilliant victories that were ever won
in the world. If It appeals to your Judg
ment to accept the recommendations of
Jour officers; If you decide to defer to the
udgment of the president of your country:
f you wish to be guided by the advice of
your friends all over the land and decide to
return to work, the United Mine Workers
of America will protect the man who-hap-pens
to be left out of his Job.
In our pledge to the president of the
United States, In which we notified him
that we would recommend to you a resump
tion of work, e said we would recommend
a return of our people to their old Jobs, and
if the coal companies refuse to give our
men their old places w a shall carry the
queetlon to the tribunal tn question and
ak that tribunal to decide that we are en
titled to the work we left when wa went on
Now, gentlemen, those are my views. I
have no assurance that If you return to
work on Wednesday all of you will be given
back your old place. I do believe, liow
ever, that the coal companies will gradually
displace the men who have your Jou and
give you your old place again. I dare say
that hundreds ot the men who were brougnt
her from the cities and from the farms to
tke your placea will return to the titles
and farm when- you go back. I hav no
doubt at all that before two or three weeks
have rolled by there will be uo question
about the reinstatement of the meu. How
ever, remember th'., when your vote are
cast, I want you t?ast them with the full
knowledge that some of you may not get
your old places ttack. 1 dare say the com
panies are o -anxious to hav competent
engineers, firemen, pumpmen and Inspectors
as you are to fill those place, and you
know that th men ihey brought here to
take your places ar not competent to run
the hoisting engines; that the firemen they
have brougnt here have not been sucvemf ill

On April 7th, 1902. Mr. McDonough wrote:
I am 78 year, of Hge, I have used Warner's
Safe Cure for nearly 3 years off and on. I
was troubled wi'h lume back, pains In my
kidneys tnd Inflammation of the bladder.
As soon as I wouul take 4 bottle of War

the irritation of the bladder stopped. Sev
eral times I caught cold and it settled In
my kidneys. 1 took Warner's 8afe Cure
"and each time It completely cured me."
P.efore I knew of "Safe Cure" I tried all
kinds of remedies, but they did me no good.
1 have recommended Safe Cure to a number
of people who had kidney and bladder
trdublcs and It worked like magic. It Ih a
blessing to those suffTlng from any dis

If not attended to at once your life will be

Another delegate spoke against ending
ihe strike without definite assurance of re
instatement,, and Mr. Mitchell was again
called upon . for . an . explanation of the
status .of the. arbitration plan as It now
Plan Ha . Been Modified.
In response to this request he said:
We have not adopted their proposition, as
they made it., and the proposition would
never-with my-consent have been adopted
as thev made It. When the coal companies
thought to practically name the arbitrator
we objected and secured u modification of
their proposal. That modification enabled
the president to select men outside of the
classes Suggested by the operators. Orga
nised labor Is represented on the commis
sion. I tie- rmk however, assume that
either (be capitalists or the trade unionists
who are on the corrimlsBlon will permit
their special Interests to Influence their
Judgment In making their decisons, but
organized- labor la on that commission, and
It Is there because the president of the
United States wanted it there, and becautte
we would noi agree to the proposition until
it was there. '
Then the delegate. again took up the de
bate. Many. them, were willing to return
to work and trust to the union to do Justice
to tbera.,. nother was willing to leave th
whole matter In ' the hands of President
Roosevelt's commission, and another said:
"If I cannot get my Job I can look for
another; therefore let us go to work and
give the American people some coal."
, Thisxseuttnient waa loudly applauded.
After further debate on both sides of the
question, it waa decided to let the question
go over until tomorrow morning. . com
mittee on resolutions was then appointed
and at 6:18 the convention adjourned until
10 tomorrow morning. The committee in
cluded President Mitchell. Secretary Wilson
and District Presidents Nlcholls, Duffy and
This committee met tonight and outlined
a set of resolutions to be presented tomor
row, but nothing official waa given '.out as
to what they will contain.
It Is probable, however, that they will
recommend the acceptance of the arbitra
tion plan, that all grievances be submitted
to the commission appointed by President
Roosevelt; that all men who shall not find
Immediate employment shall be taken care
of by the nnlon until they get positions, snd

thanked for tbe assistance riven the mine
workers during their struggle.
Often D!sagi With Us
Because we overeat of tbsm. Iudl
festion fallows. But there's a way to
eseape such consequences. A dose of a
food dlg-Mtent like Kodol will relive you
at once. Your stomach Is simply too
weak to digest what you eat. That's all
indigestion is. Kodol direst the food
without the stomach's aid. Thus th
stomaoh rests while the body is strength
ened by wholesome food. Dieting Is un
necessary. Kodol digests any kind ot
good food. Strengthens sod invigorate.
