Fa and the Southern acinc railways and
the Armour car, lines, Santa Fe Refrlg-e-ator
Dispatch and the American Refrig
erator Transit company. The cases were
segregated from tho . numerous cases
agulnst southeastern railways on which
hearings wero held recently.
' The principal witness today was J. 8.

tostlmony concerning rebates and declared
his Inability to break up tho practice. He

changing with the American Refrigerator
Transit company and the Michigan Cen
tral railway. The cars operated by the
Santa Fe Refrigerator Dispatch, said Mr.
Leads, arc owned by the Santa Fe railway
and are leased by the Dlspatctv.Une.
Commissioner Prouty questioned the wit
ness regarding the cost of refrigeration In
the California fruit service, and Mr. Leads
mid a charge for refrigeration Is justifiable
for the reason that the receipts from
mileage are Insufficient to )ay earnings on
the expensively constructed cars.
Mr. Ieads figured the cost of maintenance
of cars at 21 cents a day and the earn
ings for sixty-six miles at of a cent a
mile, making the annual earnings at 1142,
maintenance $7E, and net earnings J67 a
year. The cars cost about 11.100 each.
Admits Partus Rebates.
In response by Commissioners Clements
and Prouty, t Mr. Leads admitted that lie
has paid rebates to shippers of deciduous
rrults, but Insisted that there had been no
discrimination In favor of any one or more
shippers. He Justified the payment of re
bates, by saying that he found this to be
a practice Indulged In by his competitors.
The rebates, he said, amounted to 10 a
tar to Chicago, $16 to Buffalo and Puts
burg and 20 to the Atlantic coast.
A protest was made by the attorneys for
the Armour cur lines and the 'Southern
2aolflo company against the "loone manner
of examining the wlliiess."
Commissioner Clement hud culled atten
tion to the testimony kIvcii by Mr. limits !
In hearing at Chicago a year ago and
asked Mr. Leads to tell the commission
again of "theso practices." The attorneys
aid that If Mr. Leuds hud evidence of con
crete cases where rebates had been given
it Would be oil right for him to tell of
Mr. Leads then told what his company
had done and said individually he was
powerless to break up the practice.
"Why can't you break it up?" asked
"Because It would precipitate war that
niighi bring the charges below cost of re
frigeration," said Mr. Leads.
J. H. Call of Los Angeles, Cal., special
counsel for the commission, asked Mr.

LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER
DCUBT DEATH OF CHORUS GIRL
lirlatlrea of tieary Woman nt Cer
tain of Hln Found on
BOSTON. Nov. 1. Pending the arrival of
Morris Nathan, who left Pittsburg last
night for Boston, it was believed here to
day that no arrest of physician would
be made In the suit case mystery until after
the police officials had nn opportunity of
questioning the young man. The state
ment of Attorney Bisklnd, representing
Nathan, that he hoped to show that Miss
Geary Is, in fact, alive and that he ex
pected to demonstrate this by producing
the young woman, created something of a
sensation In police circles. The statement
of the attorney was read with interest In
Cambridge, where the Cjearys live, because
of the fact that some of the members of
the Geary family are not certain that tho
rings found upon the hands of the victim
were those of Susan. To the police the
statement suggested Nathan's possible de
fense and emphasized tho necessity of the
commonwealth proving positively that the
dismembered part of the body In the suit
rase, the head being mlsalng. wero portions
of the body of the Cteary girl.
Nathan and a number of officers arrived
In Boston at 4:2". A crowd blocked the
platform at the South Pnlon station, await
ing the arrival of the train. Nathan, pale
and weak and apparently quite ill. came
down the car steps' w ith the officers. The
trip to police headquarters wits made with
the horses driven nt a gallop, and Nathan
was taken at one" Into the private office
of (Superintendent Pierce. He had hardly
reached the room when a messenger came
out. lie stated that Nathan had col
lupsed and needed medical treatment.
Dr. Dunn, the police phyRician, who was
summoned to attend Nathan, informed the
police officials that It would be Imprudent
to question the prisoner tonight, and, act
ing upon this advice, bc examination of
Nathan was iiostponed until tomorrow.
Nathan ha been charged with abortion
and It Is on thi charge that. he will be
brought into court tomorrow, when 'it Is
expected his counsel will ask for a con
tinuance of the case. Captain Dugun,
after a conference with Superintendent
Pierce and Chief Wattn, stated that fur
ther arrests today were Improbable.
Nathan was held at '.ho police head
quarters for about two hams while under
treatment by the phy (elaj, , He recovered
which he waa locked tip for the night.

ST. PETERSHVRO, Nov. 1. Though the
day passed in comparative quiet In St.
Petersburg and Moscow, a flood of dis
patches from all parts of the empire re
port disorder In many cities with a heavy
total of dead and wounded. The people
while celebrating their new-found freedom
were In many instances Set upon by Cos
sack and police, while sometime the
spirit of mob violence broke forth and the
lower elements of the people gave them
selve to pillage and destruction. The
mot serious disorder apimrently occurred
at Odessa, where hundreds of person ar
reported to have ben killed or wounded
and where the rioting 1 momentarily ex
pected to flare out Into a repetition of the
slaughter of last July, and at Kawin. where
a three dnys' rclgu of terror was ended
only by the retirement of all Cossacks to
Anti-Jen Ish I prlalnaa.
A deplorable feature of the news from
the Interior Is that anti-Jewish Uprisings
have occurred In many places, especially
In south Russia, where the populace
vented It hatred of the Jew by sacking
their stores and clubbing the members of
i ne race, in some cases resorting lo trie
The attark on the crowds are reported
to be In most cawes the work of Cossacks,
who many times were apparently let loose
upon the people without direction or au
thority. In St. Petersburg today. General
Trepoff, In nccordance with his announce
ment of last night, prevented the resump- .
tlon of revolutionary demonstrations by
having the crowds dispersed whenever and
wherever they gathered. Kazan place and
the Nevsky prospect wero several time
cleared by Cossacks and pollee and the
crowds were driven from the vicinity of
the university with whip and tho flat
of sabers. General Trepoff was aided by
the weather, which was cold and rainy
and which kept many persons off th
Connt Wlttc's ftreat Task.
Count Witte'a task in securing a fair
trial for the new experinent In constitu
tionalism is a most difficult one. Kc is
disappointed at .-not securing the suppar:
Of Jbp.llboE4ls.40n whose co-operation he (
counted. ' Many'of ' these, are holdtugr- aloof
and seem rather to enjoy the predicament
In which the new premier finds himself.
Meanwhile the socialists and revolutionists
who believe they have the government
stampeded are bending every effort to keep
the movement going and to precipitate a
catastrophe from which they hope a so
cialistic republic will emerge. This Is a
consummation as little to be desired by
the majority of liberals, especially tho
xemstvolsts, as by the government Itself,
and therein Ilea the chief hope that the
force gathering under the banner of Count
Wltte is sufficiently strong to make head
against tho revolutionary movement and
the spirit of unrest throughout the country.
Count Wltte Is doing his utmost to meet
the chief objections against the new re
Liberty of the Press.
In addition to the proposed amnesty for
political prisoners, liberty of the press hu.t
has been granted, Count Wltte cfferlng to
a deputation of editors who called on him
to abolish the censorship regulation, the
amusing explanation that in the hurry of
writing the manifesto the words "liberty
of tho press" were inadvertently omitted
and that tho omission hud not been noticed
until the complaint waa made.
The Official Gazette formally announces
that the term "liberty of speech" is to be
interpreted as Including the press.
Against the demand for the removal of
General Trepoff, Count Wltte, howover, la
inflexible. He informed a delegation from
the strike committee which called on hltu
toduy to demand tho releuse of their Im
prisoned comrades and the removal of
Generul Trepoff that It would be mndness
tor hlin to dismiss the only man capable of
maintaining order in the city at the present
Will Suspend Strike Friday.
Nominally for the purpose of their per

funds, the strike committee tonight do
cided to cull off the St. Petersburg Indus
trial strike at noon Friday next, but tu
resume It at un opportune moment.
The St. Petersburg rallroud men have

they have assurances that the soldiers of

No ncwtqiMpers will be Issued tomorroW

The printers have determined to work only

themselves to the censorship regulations.
The Publishers' association have met this
determination by resolving lo disregard
hereafter all circulars Issued u- the censor
and to print what they please. The japcr
