Th npilfln romnlilnti of Mr. Hearst are
that the roads charge unreasonable rates;
that they discriminate In favor of the bi

against the Independent coal mining com
panies In favor of the companies controlled
by the railroads.
The commission Is also to consider while

Chicago local transfer tax, which calls for
the payment of $2 per car for cattle trans
ferred from the termini of the western rail-

powder, the exhibition closing by a charge
of all the native cavalry, which wheeled
across the plain and charged toward the
station occupied by the president, pulling
up their horses within 300 yards ot his po

The ceremonies were brought to a conclu

given by the chiefs In honor of M. Loubet.
The menu, which was printed In Arabic and

as Mr. Alles' successor, department officials
having strongly urged his selection.
Assistant Secretary Armstrong Is not am
bitious to have charge of the personnel ot
the department which usually falls to the
first assistant secretary. Should he be
transferred to the first assistant's desk,
as now seems likely, he will ask that the

Cold Delay Corn Planting;.
The weather bureau's crop bulletin says:
In the states ct the upper Missouri val
ley the week ending April 20 was milder
than usual and generally favorable for
farming operations, but elsewhere
east of the Rockies the tern
perature was much below the average and
excessive rains retarded farm -vork gen
erally throughout the Atlantic coast dls
trtcts, Ohio valley and the southern por
tion of the lake region. The central and
west gulf states and portions of the south
east Rocky mountain dope are much in
need of rain, no appreciable amount having
fallen over a large part ot these district
for more than two weeks.

Seeding of spring wheat 1 general In all
part of the spring wheat region, but prog
ress ha not been rapid in south-eastern
Minnesota, owing to wet soil. The early
sown in Iowa and South Dakota is germ
inating slowly, though even stands are
indicated. On the north Pacific coast
spring wheat seeding is much delayed.
Oat seeding baa been suspended over a
large part of the central valleys and the
acreage in some sections is likely to be
reduced In consequence. In the statea ot
the lower Mississippi valley and in Texas
the outlook for this crop Is promising.
Kalns In portions of the eastern districts
and dry weather in the central and western
portions of the cotton belt have, to some
extent, Interfered with cotton planting;
this work has, however, been vigorously
pushed and has made fair progress.
Although frosts of the 18th caused further
injury to fruit in the upper Ohio val
ley, the reports generally explain that the
peach crop la more encouraging than those
of tho previous week. Apples appear to
have escaped injury In New England and
the middle Atlantlo atates. In California
fruit is mostly in good condition, having
sustained less injury by frost than, was
estimated. Considerable early fruit has

but in Washington the cool weather has
kept bud In check and little or no injury
has resulted In that state.

failure of Lieu ten tan t-Governor Lee to

for Kelley'a surrender.
Mr. Folk ha had the move under contem
plation for aome time, aa both he and At
torney General Crow believe Kelley, will
turn etate'a evidence If given the opportu
nity. Oovernor Dockery wired Mr. Folk today
that he had received word that Lieutenant
Oovernor Lee was In Staunton. W. Va.
The absent lleutentant governor Is said to
be willing to return to St. Louis it he would
be allowed to tell only a part of what he
knows about the transactions said to have
taken place here and at Jefferson City.
Mr. Folk will not listen to any such prop
osition. He Insists that Lieutenant Gov
ernor Lee return and reveal everything
In connection with the matter tinder in-'
vestlgatlon. The lieutenant governor'
reluctance to tell all Is due, his brother,
Robert E. Lee says, to his wish to shield
ome ot the unfortunates.
