"If this decision It upheld on appeal, and
It probably will be, the men who have been
planning great consolidations will have re

whether It will be the end of the move

the manipulators of stocks and bonds has
not yet been exhausted and that they will
find other ways In which they may effect
the same purpose, not so directly, but
through contracts or agreements, depending
on the personality of the managers or
owners. This would be far less satisfactory

"We had some experience with the ways
of the merger promoters here In Iowa.
The Molesberry bill was regarded by me i
as a measure In the Interest of mergers.
It made possible the expansion of Indebt
edness of railway corporations without re
gard to stocks or values. It was a step
preliminary to consolidations. I vetoed the
bill because I believed It was unconstitu
tional In that It was not of equal opera
tion but discriminated as between corpora
tions and different classes of railway cor
porations; also because I believed It was
contrary to public -policy. Then there fol
lowed the Hubbard bill, which aimed at
granting express provision for the purchase
of one railway corporation by another in
any atate. We had a statute giving this
power In Iowa and adjoining states, and
the bill merely extended It Indefinitely aa
to distance. I Insisted It should not be-

limiting It to purchase of 'any connecting

or competing.' It really makes the Iowa
tatuta far better than It waa. Under the
Iowa lawa aa we have them now no such
merger aa waa contemplated In the forma
tion of the Northern Securities company

to make direct extensions of fta lines Into
other atatea and . territories, by purchase,
but It cannot eliminate competition by ab
sorbing parallel or competing lines.

"It la this effort on the part of tha mer

to place parallel and competing lines under
one ownership absolutely, that la the fea

the federal courts have Interfered. The de
cision gave me pleasure. It la directly
along the lines I have been advocating and
la accord with the spirit of the Iowa lawa
relating to the aame subject."
The merger problem la not a new one to
Governor Cummins. Long before he waa
a candidate for governor of Iowa he, as
a plain lawyer, had aa clients aome of the
men who have been consplcuoua more re
cently ln the consolidation movement. It
waa while he waa in consultation, aa a
lawyer, with J. P. Morgan and aome of bit

Mr. Cummins' attention waa Drat called to
the plana of tho great railroad and Indus

place control ln the banda of only a few

and then atated plainly that he believed
the proposed consolidations were not only
contrary to publlo policy but opposed te
the beat Intereata of the owners of the rail
road propertlea. He declared then that If
tha movement was persisted In It would
lead. If successful aa the promoters hoped,
to a condition which would make It eaay

Mr. Moseley, who paid the expenses of

much mora sober. In conclusion he adds:

is the true solution of the capital and labor
question and welcomes trusts as best able

DAVID CITY, Neb., April IT. (Special
Telegram.) At the conclusion cf the argu
ment of Senator Hastings this afternoon,
C. H. Aldrlch made a short argument In
support of the motion for a new trial for
Mrs. Llllle. He asserted that the stand
ing and reputation of a man In the com
munity In which he lives Is not conclusive
as to the truthfulness of the answers given
on voir dire examination to rerve as a
Juror. This refers to Jurors Hllger, Pool
and Carlisle, against v.hoiu the charge has
been made that they had formed and ex
pressed an opinion as to the guilt or inno
cence of the defendant.
Matt Miller of counsel for the defendant
closed the argument for the motion. Mr.
Miller argued strenuously that the verdict
of the Jury was not supported by the evi
dence; that the testimony that Mrs. Llllle
was dealing on the Board of Trade ought
not to have been admitted In evidence,
that If she did deal on the Board of Trade
It bad nothing to do with the murder of
Harvey Llllle, but admitted that It might
create a bare suspicion against her and
asserted that the Jury was mislead and
dealt more with collateral evidence than
with the real evldenciary matters. Judge
Miller said It was error to admit In evi
dence the results of the experiments made
on the curtain, window and screen as to
me distance powaer Durns would be pro-
duced siml'ar to those on the curtain and
glass in the Llllle residence, that this
should have been expert testimony; xrat
it was error to permit Dr. rjeede to testify
as the first witness for the state, for the
reason that wltnesa was not the first per-
son who saw Lillie after the shooting and
further that Dr. Bcede was permitted to
testify that the concussion of the powder
produced a fracture of the skull, thus in
dicating that the gun was very close to
Llllle's sknll when the shot was fired.
Court took a recess until 7:30 tonight.
Not Many Present.
There was but a small audience in the
court room when the hearing on the mo- !
tlon for a new trial In the Lillie murder
case was resumed In the district court
this morning. Mrs. Llllle was brought
Into the court room at 10:40, accompanied
by the usual retinue, except Sam Lillie,
who was not present during the forenoon,
Mrs. Lime has the appearance of being tn
perfect health, except being somewhat pale
irom ner incarceration since February 3, I
When Judge Good continued the hearing
on the motion for a new trial to this date
he entered an order that all affidavits ln
upport of the motion for a new trial
should be filled by April 6. Notwithstand
ing this order counsel for the defense filed
four affidavit this morning. Counsel for
the state objected to this, but were given
sintil this evening to rebut those affidavits
filed this morning, and the hearing com
menced. The affidavits filed his morning were
claimed to be on newly discovered evi
dence. A. L. Hughes 7d James Clark
make affidavit as to the flndlrig of a 're
volver In an old well about 100 feet from
the Lillie residence. Mrs. Corda A. .Ball
make affidavit that on the 24th day of Oc
tober, 1902, she found a ehlrt ln the alley
near her residence with the initials "C"
and "S" on It; affiant also says that there
was several spots -on one of the sleeves
and wristband thereof that had the ap
pearance of blood stains. Mrs. Ball says
that she gave the shirt to one L. C. Ren at
hla special request. The residence of Mrs.
Ball Is about five Mocks from the Lillie
Shirt Matter Sot New.
When the coroner's Jury was holding the
Inquest a thorough and complete Investl-
gatlon was made as to the finding of this
shirt and they could not in any way con-
nect it with the Llllle murder for the
reason. If the statements made by Mrs.
Lillie were true, the man who did the
shooting never touched Harvey Llllle after
he fired the fatal shot, and It was an Im
possibility to get any blood atalns on his
Mrs. Llllle also makes affidavit and tays
she Is entitled to a new trial on the ground
of newly discovered evidence. In the finding
of the revolver and the bloody shirt; she
also avers that from the description of the
revolver given her that sho verily believes
that said revolver Is the one with which
said murder waa committed. Mrs. Llllle
also says that the finding of the shirt by
Mrs. Ball waa unknown to her or her at
torneys until on or about April 10, 1908.
The attorneys for the state have filed
affidavits completely refuting the affidavits
filed by the defense as to the Jurors, Hil-
ger, Pool and Carlisle. The affidavits aa to
Juror Pool are especially strong and aup-
port Mr. Fool in every way, and show to
the court conclusively thst he is an hon-
orame, uprignt ciuxen ln every respect.
and the allegations that he swore falsely
on his voir dire examination are false.
County Attorney Evans opened the argu -
ment ln opposition to the motion, making
a atrong, forcible argument, and by au-
tnorities ciea snowea to tne court that a
new trial couia not De granted on the
showing made by the defense; he was fol
lowed by Senator Hastings,

for Fort Norrls, where he will spend most
of the remainder of his stay In the park.
The geysers are in the neighborhood of
Norrls. If he has time he also will visit the
Falls of tbe Yellowstone.
The president has decided that he cannot
accept the wish of the labor unions to refrain
from riding on the Union Pacific because
of a strike on that line. His itinerary was
arranged months ago, and much as he de
sires to favor the union men, he cannot dis
appoint thousands of people by changing
his plans at this late day.
No news has been received from tbe
president since he left early this morning
for Norrls. As the trail had been made
passable In the worst places It Is supposed
that he reached his destination safely.
During the last two or three daya of his
stay in the park the president will be Joined
by Secretary Loeb and the other members
of the party. .
The plan for him to apend a day ln the
