You therefore ask that you may be given

MAKE A SWEEPING DENIAL
Answers ot Anthracite Roads to the
Petition Filed by William
WASHINGTON, Nor. II. The answers of
the Delaware ft Hudson, New York. Sus
quehanna Western, tha Erie and the
Lehigh Valley railroads to the complaint
of William R. Hearst of New York against
the anthracite coal-carrying roads were
Sled today with the Interstate Commerce
All the answers deny that the interstate
commerce law has been violated. They
deny that any unjust or discriminative
rates have been exacted on anthracite as
compared to bituminous or other carload
freight traffic, and deny that the petitioner
or any other persons or other independent
purchasers have sustained any injury by
reason of the anthracite transportation
The Erie, In Its answer, says the peti
tioner has no authority "to present the
petition la behalf of the so-called inde
pendent producers ot ev.hiacite eoal or
others;" denies that during certain yeara
named In the complaint it haa ec.ered into
any agreement to pool freight or freight
traffic in anthracite coal ot for propor
tionate division of coal traffic or division
of aggregate proceeds of earnings from
cnthraclte coal transportation.
The Erie company says that any tint
formlty of rates for anthracite coal trans
portation by the various carriers has been
the "natural and Inevitable result of com
petitive conditions, which require In the
case of anthracite coal, as with other com
modities, that traffic of the aame character
from the same or competing localities be
carried at substantially the same rates by
competing carriers," .
The Lehigh Valley' and tha New York,
Susquehanna A Western" answers are pre-
semea along similar lines.

BERLIN, Nov. 11. In the Reichstag to
day the secretary of the treasury. Baron
von Thlelmann, announced that the deficit
ta the Imperial budget for 1903, was esti
mated at $37,600,000. The budget, he added
would be submitted In two or three weeks.
The deficit tor 1902, was $14,750,000.
It would not do to be always providing
for deficits by loans, neither could the con
tributions of the federated states be In
creased. Nevertheless, it was probable that
the states would have to bear the loss.
What ought to be done was to Increase the
Imperial revenues so as to balance the ex
penditures. Looking around for suitable
objects for Increased taxation he saw beer
and tobacco and he begged the members
of the house to keep those in view.
Old-Aare Pensions Promised.
The government Intended, as soon as
practicable, to propose pensions for widows
and orphans. He was quite unable to say
how much such penslonswould be an ex
tension ot the state Insurance laws and
treasury burdens, but the suggestion was
made that $25 per annum waa lnsuflVient.
Assuming that $50 was enough, it would
take $40,000,000 to foot the bill.
It was Impossible to say how much the
government tariff bill would yield, but a
mere mechanical estimate, based on the
present imports showed the customs re
ceipts would increase $20,600,000. While
supporters of the tariff schedules thought
$126,000,000 would be derived.
The hint that the government wss
meditating pensions for widows and or
phans caused a stir among members, be

The deficit Is the result of the financial

CRUISER CINCINNATI IS THE WINNER

SAN JTJAN, Porto Rico, Nov. 21. Carry
ing a great white bone In Its toeth, and
with phosphorescent spray dashing high
MP on its sharp bows, the cruiser Cincin
nati forged abreast ot Culebra light at
midnight last night, a winner in the great
st ocean race of war ships ever run on tho
North Atlantic seaboard.
Nearly two miles astern of tha cruiser
flashed the white searchlight of the battle
ship Alabama. It bad distanced all its
rivals ot the heavyweight class and had
ihown Ita quality by putting up a hammer
and tongs struggle all the way from Hamp
ton Roads with the fleet-footed cruiser.
One by one it hsd left behind the little
gunboat Machlas, the Indiana of Santiago
fame, the new battleship Kearsarge, Ita

plucky Massacbuseets, sister ship of the
That the comparatively old Massachusetts
was a stronger competitor than the Kear
sarge Is one of the surprises of the race.
That the Alabama came in so close a
second to the fast commerce destroyer Cin
cinnati,' even though the cruiser hsd been
handicapped thirty-five miles at the start.
Is a superb performance for a ilrst-class
battleship heavily armed.
First Long Dlatnnce Race.
This Is the first time in history that the
ships of the North Atlantic aquadron have
engaged In such a long distance speed con.
teet in the open sea. As a component part
of the fleet now assembled for the winter
saval maneuvers under command of Ad
miral Dewey, the North Atlantic squadron
was ordered, after assembling at Hampton
Roads, to proceed to the nsval rendezvous
oft Culebra light, the teacon that gleams
from the pinnacle of a rocky little island
off San Juan point.
Here was a tuperb opportunity to test
the actual relative speed ot the ships of
the fleet In competition snd under thor
oughly practical conditions. Five of the
ships lined up for the start at noon, on
Saturday, the Alabama, the Kearsarge, the
Massachusetts, the Indiana and the Ma

The Massachusetts and Indiana are sister
vessels, launched in 1803, and with the
Oregon, not entered In this contest, they
mark the earlier type ot first-class battle
ships of the new navy.
The Kearsarge and the Alabama repre
sented later types of sea fighters.
Thirty-five miles behind the line of bat
tleships aa they passed the 'Virginia capes
came the protected cruiser Cincinnati. By
reason ot its speedier and lighter type
this wss regarded as a fair handicap for
the greyhound of the fleet, which, to do Its
destined work, should early cutclass them
all In cruising qualities.

A special dispatch from Boston, Msy 6,

regulations of the Boston Board of Health
as to barber shops: "Mugs, shaving
brushes and razors shall be sterilized after
each separate use thereof. A separate,
clean towel shall be used for each person.
Material to stop the flow of blood shall be
used only In powdered form, and applied
on a towel. Powder puffs are prohibited."
Wherever Newbro's "Herplcldo" is used on
face or scalp after shaving or batr cutting,
there Is no danger, aa it Is antiseptic snd
kills the dandruff germ.
Is especially valuable during the
