NEW YORK, April 30. President Bser
of the Philadelphia ft Reading railroad and
the Temple Iron company, was recalled by
the Interstate Commerce commission today.
He said the coal roads and coal companies
had reached an agreement for mining and
distributing coal In summer from all mines
on a percentage basts. The owners of mines
were willing to restrict the output, so the
coal road agreed to carry all coal In sum
mer as scon as mined and in no case when
It was found the market would take more
were cars refused.
There had never been any meeting
or agreement to make uniform freight
rates for anthracite coal. The charges,
he said, should be such as to ena
ble roads to earn profits representing a
percentage equal to the prevailing rate of
Interest. It was a matter of the greatest
satisfaction to him that he never had been
a party to over capitalization. In case of
over capitalisation the "water" should bo
deducted In calculating the proper earnings
and freight charges to produce them.
He then described the stock issue
of the Reading and its market
value In recent years. He said 'the capital
ization Is fair and honest; that the stock
holders are entitled to a fair return on
their Investment; that the Reading could
not reduce Its hard coal freight rate and
hope to earn that return.
It was the hope of his administration to
enable the Reading within a year or two
to pay 4 per cent on its first and second
Thomas Oppose, t'omnetitlon.
E. B. Thomae, president of the Lehigh
Valley, who followed Mr. Baer, said unre
strained and unrestricted competition was
one of the worst evils to which ths country
could be .subjected.
Asked If ho so conducted his road as
10 avoid competition of that sort he re
plied that he had not been able to do so
up to the present.
"Do you conduct your business on that
principal?" asked Mr. Shear.
The Lehigh counsel objected.
"Who fixes the Lehigh Valley ccal
prices?" continued Mr. Shear, and counsel
The commission directed the witness to
answer both questions, but under advice of
counsel, he declined.
Personally Mr. Thomas would like to pub
lish the much talked of 65 and 35 per cent
coal purchase contracts as their impor
tance was much overestimated.

' LONDON, April 30. At Ihft night ssston
of the London diocesan conference yester

sent for an explanation from Rev. Mr. Had

that none had been received.
The galleries and the floor of the little
church In the shadow of Westminster Ab
bey were crowded In anticipation of the
bishop's announcement. Arising amid In
tense silence, he said he had hoped to pre

clergyman In the matter of the grave scan

Ho could -only surmise that a bereave
ment, the death of a child, waa responsible
for Mr. Haddon's failure to auswer.
He characterized the use of St. Mark's
church for the performance of the reremony
as a grave, moral scandal and expressed
his determination not to enter the church
until due reparation bad been made.
He briefly recapitulated the contention of
the chancellor cf the diocese that he was
obliged by law to Issue a license to di
vorced persons if any clergyman could be
found to marry them.
Continuing, he read an extract from the
decision of the Lambeth conference of 1888,
condemning the practice of marrying di
vorced persons. In which It Is recommended
that In case the Innocent party should de
sire to remarry the question of tho church
service should be left to the bishop of the
"There has been considerable question on
this point," be added, "but the opinion of
the church has been strongly against this
concession. The law doea not compel the
loan of a church and much less of a clergy
man to solemnize' such a marriage. The
present scandal I hope will not be without
good effect If it directs the attention of the
entire world to the attitude of the church
on this subject and emphasizes the fact that
the proceedings of the chancellors are en
tirely beyond the control of the bishop.
"I hereby express my earnest wish that
the clergy do not celebrate such marriages,
and I certainly shall not enter St. Mark's
church until reparation has been made for
tho insult thus offered to the diocese."
The bishop's remarks were vigorously ap
plauded and the session ended with a vote
of thanks moved by the LUffragan bishop
