PITTSBURG, Pa., Nov. .-The Plttaburg
Chamber of Commerce banquet tonight at
the .Schlenley hotel, which concluded the
Founders' day celebration of the Carnegie
Institute, was an event of national Import
ance, the roster of speaker being the most
brilliant In . the history of the organisa
tion. President John Eaton of the Cham
ber of Commerce presided . and Congress
man John Dal sell was toaatmaater. Three
hundred of Pittsburg's representative busi
ness and professional men were soated at
the banquet table.
The principal speakers were' Senator
PMlander C. Knox, Sir Chentung Llao
Cheng, the Chinese minister; General A. W.
Ureely, commander of the United States
signal service, and Melville E. Stone, gen
eral manager of the Associated Press.
After an Invocation, by . Rev. P. S. Mo
Cormifk. D. D.. and Introductions by Presi
dent Eaton, Toaetmaster Dalzell Introduced
General Greely, who spoke on 'The Army
of the United States A Civil as Well as a
Military factor In Our Country's .Develop
ment." Sir Chentung Llao Cheng discussed "The
Commercial Relations Between China and
the United States."
Melville E. Stone's address was on "The
High Court of Public Opinion."
Senator Knox In his speech discussed
regulation of railway charges. He said:
gaeeeh of Senator Kaex.
The president believes that the power to
pass upon the unreasonableness of a chal
lenged railroad rate or prac:ice should be
IixlK'd In some tribunal upon which can be
also constitutionally cast the power to fix
a reasonable rate or practice In lieu of a
rate found by it to be unreasonable, and
that the rate so fixed should become as
neurly Immediately operative as possible.

In other words, it would seem to be wiser
to cure the disease than treat the symp
toms. The Wall Street Journal said In l92. In
relation to the Issues Involved in the gov
ernment's attitude toward the Northern
Securities company: "The railroads at
this moment stand In serried ranks, facing
the law and the settlement of the present
dispute Involves a settlement on first prin--clplts.
Abuse of the railroad Interests on
the one hand and of the interstate railroad
commission on the otherr at this time, la
puerile. The former may have been guilty
of Imprudent action and the latter of de
reliction of duty, but these are small mat
ters when questions of first principle have
to be settled, as they have at present."
This Is measureably true today.
Coaspress Mast Prevent Injustice.
The proposition Is that congress can and
should at once enact a law covering the
main features of the public demand for a
J'rominent and efficient remedy against un
ust railroad practices, and leave to the
uture tlio determination of the wisdom and
I necessity of legislating In respect to col
lateral and related matters.
' It is the duty of congress to regulate
commerce so as to prevent injustice and
Imposition by the carriers.
The proposition to correct unreasonable
railroad rates ana practices goes no rur
ther than this. It la tantamount to the
proposition to correct injustice and lrapo
; sltion. v
' If you provide the remedy, the evil will
largely disappear. The tendency for some
time has been toward fairer dealing by the
railroads with the public.
The enlarged and more effective pro
visions against rebates and unjust discrimi

Fifty-seventh congress affected fewer rail
roads and met with less railroad opposition
than It would have met ten years earlier,

In a quasi-Judicial proceedings and proved
to be unjust and unreasonable, after the
fullest hearing and argument. There is no
order that can be made by any commission
or board now existing, or which It is pro
posed to create, that can change a rate or
practice that Is unreasonable or unjunt
without Its order being subject to review in
a Judicial proceedings In the Lnlted States
circuit court upon the ground of the un
reasonableness of the order of the commis
sion, und there is not a law that dot-B. and
probably no law could be enacted that
could, prevent the court, if satisfied that
Injustice had been done the railroads, from
staying the operation of the order upon
terms until the court had passed upon the
merits of the controversy.
Railroads Have Remedy.
In other words, the railroads enjoy a com
plete remedy against Injustice, which it is
not proposed to take away, while the public
has no effective remedy against injustice.
More than such a remedy the public does
not ask. Less than such a remedy It never
should have been without.
Exactly such a remedy congress supposed
It gave under the original act to regulate
commerce, and It was applied In a number
of cases before the decision of the supreme
court that it was not given by the act.
The administrative leatures of the power
Inherent In congress to fix reasonable rates
for transportation may be lawfully vested
In the Interstate Commerce commission.
This Includes the power to vest In the
commission authority to substitute a. rea
sonable rate for one found by It to be un
it hua fr.nnntlv been declared to De tne
law mat congress rannui vrm m
dx tolls In any constitutional court, because
the fixing of a toll is a legislative and not
a Judicial act, and congress cannot Impose
the performance of nonjudicial duties upon
the courts which exercise the Judicial power
of the Lnlted States.
It is equally c ear that congress cannot
give an appeal from a non-Judlclal or ad
ministrative body to a Judicial body for
the purpose of reviewing administrative
acts by correcting them by decreeing a
new act, as In a judicial appeal, and this
disposes of what 1 understood to he the
main contention between the advocates of
the proposition that a rate fixed by the
commission should go Into eftect at once
and the advocates of tne proposition tnat
it should not go Into efiect until approved
by a court upon appeal. It Is perfectly
evident that, If the court In the first in
stance could not perform the legislative
act of fixing a reasonable rate, it could
not perform the same act upon app..

and It follows, of course, If the weight of
reason Is wit li the railroad, the complaint
will be dismissed. To conjecture otnerwe
would be to assume that tne commission
could not understand, or would not need,
a sound defense.
Upon tne utuer hand, if the complainant
makes good his charge of unreasonableness
in rate or practice, the commission, exer
cising the delegated non-jucncial power of
congrecs, decides what wouid be reasonable
under the evidence.
A very short a..u simple law would reach
the root of the trouble. It would, provide
that the tolls collected by common (carri
ers and the practices pursued by thein
should be just, fair and reasonable. Too
power to determine these, tolls and prac
tices should rest with the railroads, and
not be Interfered with except upon com-
plaint and after full hearing before the
' Interstate Commerce commission.
The commission should have the power.
If It finds the complaint well founded, to
declare what shall be a Just, fairly re
munerative rate or practice to be charged
or followed in place of the one declared
to be unreasonable.
This order of the commission should tako
effect within such reasonable time as shall
be prescribed by the commission In the
order, and should be final, subject only to
attack for unlawfulness In the federal
counts, where it would have to stand or
fall upon Its merits.

Passed Ipon by the
WASHINGTON. Nov. S.-Baron Soeck
von Bternburg, the German ambassador, is
expected to be present for a few days to
the Slate department, the basis upon which
his government Is willing to enter upon
negotiations with the United States gov
ernment for a new trade treaty or some
kind of an arangement that shall stave
off the dreaded "tariff war," which other
wise the department officials fear must
almost certainly begin within four months.
. i d i a ic; ucja III
The State department has so far failed to
alnl111 the German contention regarding the
arrangement under 8ectlon S of the Dlng-
ley act, by the terms of which the United
" """" """" "T
ln tne matter of trade with Germany. This
i German view is based on the fact that new
treaties, exclusive ln terms, had Just been
I ... . ,
I mad wlth number of European countries
and that America was debarred from claim-
ng the benefits of the special low customs
rates named unless It entered Into a special
! convention with Germany; but attention
has been called to the fact that this
Dingley act "arrangement" Is, by Its own
terms, terminable upon one month's notice
from either party and It is not doubted
that without prolonging the controversy
over the effect of the Dingley act "arrange
ment" of the new European treaties, Ger
many will give the requisite notice before
March 1, next, and thus terminate the life
of the arrangement beyond question.
Nothing Offletally Known.
Nothing is officially known as to the
substance of baron Stern burg's proposals.
He may propose a new arrangement under
section 3 of the Dingley act, replacing the
paragraph in the existing snangement, con
ferring the minimum tralff rates upon
American Imports, by a new section, limit
the minimum to a few articles of American
origin. This has been suggested by the
Germans on the ground that the general
concession of minimum rates on all Ameri
can products Is a much more valuable
concession to America than this country Is
able to extend to Germany under seotlon
i, because of the reduced duties therein
provided for are limited to distilled wines,
vermouth, argols and works of srt.
Another course Is the negotiation of a
general reciprocity treaty. Section 4 of the
Dingley act, authorising the negotiation of
reciprocity treaties under the specified con
ditions, has expired by limitation. The
question of expediency of negotiating such
a treaty under 'he general constitutional
powers, In view of the senate so far to
act upon any of the pending reciprocity
treaties, would have to be decided by Presi
dent Roosevelt before the Stale department
can enter upon negotiation of details.

Apparently Get Worst of Flgbt He-

SANTA" BARBARA. Cal., Nov. I. The
bodies of over twenty dead whales, known
as "killers," are floating In the channel
off Santa Crux island, thirty miles from
this city. The gigantic corpses measure
from twenty to forty feet In length end
bear mute evidence of a fierce battle be
tween the monsters.

islands, and It Is probable that in the
extermination of so many of this variety
of whale a signal victory has been won
by some ot the leviathans.
