latent by Tnrker. -Superintendent
Tucker of th street rail
way company, who visited tho scene shortly
after th accident, gav out -this Informa
tion, which he had obtained from the crews
of th car:
. "Th southbound car wa going down th
last inolln before reacning the Missouri
avenue turn, whan for some resson, not as
yet ascertained. It Jumped . th track. " It
so happened that a north , bound car was
approaching, and the. two poinded. .Th
front vestibule of. neither car was dam
aged, the car striking Just, back of tbe
vestibule and ripping tbe whole aides from
eaoh car. Both eara wer well loaded at
th time, the car from the south being
filled with South Omaha 'people coming t)
Omaha and the southbound car being lllled
with packing house employes." ,
Motorraan Kellcjf : Talks.
Thomas Kelley, motormitn on the north
bound car tald:- . , a
"Nothing seemed wrong as the cars ap
proached and we did noi realize the car
had Jumped until the crash came.' It all
happened so quickly nothing could be don.
I was not lo.1urd at all, ns the car missed
my vestibule." "
Willi Crosby, conductor of ' the north
bound car waa on the inside of the car,
collecting fares and said the accident hap
pened just aa he was ringing up a fare, so
quickly be was knocked off his feet' be
fore the fare was rung up. He said:
"About fly of tbe seventeen passengers
who wer aboard on my cur were hurt.
1 wa knocked off my feet and several of
my teeth wer loosened and my lip cut,
but outside of that I wa not hurt. It
was fortunate the stoves were on the right
side of th cars, aa they, wer not damaged
or upset, or there might have been a mora
serious avoidant."
At th .
Police Captain Nels Turnquist of - the
South Omaha depattment took charge of
th work of rescue. He was given valiant
jtaslstance, not only by other policemen,
butVby people who resided within the
neighborhood of . the wreck. Men and
women, particularly women! left their work
In the homesmany left hot breakfasts on
th table; other half-prepared meals on
th stoves and rushed Intg the street to
do what tbey could to alleviate pain and
administer to suffering.

The heavy snow impeded progress of
street tars all over the city. No line
seemed to be as badly handicapped, hpw
evsr, as th Walnut Hlll-Albrlght line. At

seemed on or two persons, of the large
crowds that had been waiting for fifteen
or twenty minutes, were able to adhere
somehow or other to the c,ar. Park line

not near as crowded, bving larger and hav

reported that the fatal accident at South
Omaha, was the only bad one recorded

their hug cylinders failed fully to remove

Soenes at the South Umah hospital
shortly after the accident were pathetic.
Anxious relatives congregated at th hos

rates, 48,000 miles of railway was con
structed In this country. He also referred
to the experience of many of the states in
regulating the roads, saying that in all
cases where tnere were commissions the
growth of the rnilrosd system had been
commensurate with that of the other In
dustrie of the states.
He defended the Interstate . C'ommerc
commission against the charge of incom
petency and, coming abruptly to the ques
tion of the power" that should bo given the
courts, said:
We had as well lock the fact in the face.
The plain truth in this contest between
these corporations and the peuple Is that
the railroads want the law affecting them
administered t y tribunals composed of men
appointed for life and whose amenability
to the people la therefore remote. They
are not opposed to trusting tln powers
conferred by this legislation In the Inter
state Commerce 'commission because they
do not believe competent and Impartial men
will at all times compose that commission,
but because they fear that the power of
the people to .quickly call them to account
for any forgetfulness of their Interest will
lead . them to put the public weal above
that of special privilege.
Am to Review. In Courts.
He announced, however, that he had "no
objection to such, right of retlew by tha
courts as does not In pftect either inter
fere with the rightful authority of congress
In this matter of rates or so hamper It in
the discharge' of these powers through Its
commission as to defeat or render Ineffec
tive, in whole or in part, its lawful pur
poses with respect to this subject."
'He added: "With these limitations the
right of review by the courts ougiit not to
be denied, and If It does not already exist
It ought to be conferred." -
He went on to say that the court al
ready have, without further legislation, all
the authority and power Over this subject
which they con exercise without substi
tuting their judgment for that of congress
In. . matter entrusted by the constitution
t?th exclusive Judgment of congress. -
After e presentation of this legal phase
of the case Mr. Simmons said: .
; lly' chief.. Hppref.ension concerning this
mekaure is that wniie the Courts navo uot
the contuituJUHnw, right, as, 1 ee,lt. to re
view a lawful rate hert an orTtd by (lie
ooirunlMsirm, -and while this , hill, by not
conferring it denies to them that right, still
In actual practice, by means of Interlocu
tory urdirs Imped upon ex parte anowings
of uiii'ettMonuhieness, . these orders may oo
suspended pending litigation, and In this
way many unreviewable as well as review-
able orders of tho commission will be held
In abeyance until final decree.
It Is probable that the oniy escape from
this danger will he found in taking from
the courts the right to suspend the orders
of the commission In any and all cases.
If congress rah do this, would it be right
to do It? Would It be good or had policy?
It It would be wrong or unjust to do It
we cannot, as Individuals or as n nation.
afford to do It for mere profit a sake.
Yet he had. he ' suld.' reluctantly reac hed
the conclusion that the power of suspen
sion should be employed, if the power cx
sists -to suspend It.

WASHINGTON, March 18 The house de
voted Itself today to general debate on th
legislative appropriation bill. " First ther
was discussed the question of eliminating
aged clerks from the employ of the gov
ernment: then came a discussion of free
alcohol for the arts, the restriction of Jap.
anese immigration and finally a defense of
New Tork City.' " . '
Mr Llttauer of New Tork and Mr. Liv
ingston of Georgia, representing' the re
publican and democratic View, concurred
on th question thut something must b
don in th way of reorganising the gov
ernment service. Mr. Marshall of North
Dakota gave his volije to the proposition
for-free alcohol, Mr. Hayes of California
Spoke In behalf of restricting Japanese and
Curean Immigration and Mr. Bennett of
New York defended his city In relation to
the class of foreigners who mske New York
their home.
The house at once began the consideration
of the executive, legislative and Judicial bill
on meeting today. The bill carries a total
appropriation of 83,134.181.
In explaining the. bill, Mr. Uttauer (N.
Y.) said It provided the salaries for 14,4t)
public servants, embracing the entire ser
vice. He at once proceeded with an
elaborate critical explanation the In
creasing power of th government bureau
chief and the helpless condition of congress
In controlling the expenditure of appro
priations. A . classification of salaries of
government clerks was, he said, a crying
necessity. Men doing exactly tho same
work now receive some 11,800. aim $l.$o0,
some J1.400 and other $l,0o. All this tended
to demorallie the service. He suggested a
commission to 'go Into the question. If
something was not done he predicted the
condition would grow decidedly woree. The
service of the government If business me
thods were applied. Mr. IJttauer 'ma'n
talued. could b conducted for half the
money It now costs and with three-fourths
the number of clerks. The door of entrance
to this service was wide opwn, but never.
opened wide enough to let anything but a
coffin out. . It was S life tenure.
Mr. .Grosvenor asked If there was no
power to get rid Of an Incompetent clerk.
There Is. but It. Is not Uved up to,"
answered Mr. Llttauer, who continued by
declaring that their government should not
be made a charitable institution and Its
service a home for the aged and infirm.
, Mr. Hayes of California spoke at length
In favor of extending th Chinese exclusion
act to th Japanese and Coreans.
A eulogy of New York City by Mr. Ben
nett of that city entertained th house dur
ing the last half hour of tbe session. Some
time ago, in a carefully prepared speech on
the immigration question.. Mr. Hopkins of
Kentucky made th statement that two-

Mr. Hadley, in discussing the Standard's

'A week ogo today, when the testimony
of H. Clajf Plorce was to have been taken
before Commissioner R. A, Anthony In

Executive Botrd Will Map Out Work of
Contention Today.
fioarf lrosr( f a settlement of
nispate Over Wage Scale
In Soft Coal Dis
tricts. INDIANAlOLI9 .Ind.. March 18 At the
special national convention of the I'nlted
Mine Workers of America, called by resi
dent John Mitchell In response to the re
quest of Tresldent Roosevelt, to make
efforts to avert a strike of all coal miner
In the I'nlted States, the business of th
first session which opens Thursdsy morn
ing in this city, will be a discussion of plans
for a Joint conference with the bituminous
operators In Indianapolis next week. Most
of the operators are here and the remain
der will arrive tomorrow. There were a
number of close conferences tonight at the
headquarters among the higher officials of
the organisation and the board members.
The national executive board will hold an
all-day executive meeting at their rooms to
morrow, at which they will map out a plan
to be brnujrht before the delegates Thurs
day, All the locals in the union will be
represented. The numerical strength in the
gathering will not equal that In January,
as many of the smaller locals are sending
their proxies by representatives of other
locals Instead of by Special delegates.
Will Rescind Ryan Resolatlon.
The Indianapolis Btar says: "The rescind
ing of the Ryan resolution will be the most
Important business to come before the con
vention. Until this Is done there can be no
Joint conference, with the operators who
come to Indianapolis next week.'"
This Is the effect of the announcement by
the Snthraclte operators that they Will not
secede to the demands of their employes.
The refusal of the snthraclte operators to
trest further with the miners makes a
settlement with' the union In districts 1, 7
and Out of the question. The Ryan reso
lution adopted by the miners Just before
the adjournment of their national conven
tion provides that contracts must be signed
In all districts under the control of the
organisation at the same time or that no
agreements' shall be entered livto. It Is
conceded that as no overtures for a joint
conference of the miners and operators
of the bituminous field have been made by
either party, such a conference If one Is
held, must come about as the result of the
meetings of the opposing forces being held
In Indianapolis at the same time. There is
a glimmer of satisfaction on the faces of
members of the miners executive board
which indicates that they believe there Is
yet hope for a settlement with thetr em
ployers and that at least that part of their

PARIS, March 13.-lYesldent Fallleres
today signed decrees nominating the new
ministers, which will appear In the official
journal tomorrow morning. A geuernl
statement of the ministerial policy will lie
made in the Chamber of Deputies in the
afternoon. The .cabinet at that time will
express Its determination to continue In
M. Routler's line of action reletlve to for
eign affairs, which has been repeatedly
approved by the Parliament.
It Is understood thst one of M. Bour
geon's first acts after taking over the
foreign office will be a reiteration of the
Instructions hitherto sent to M. Hevoil,
the senior delegate to the conference at
Algeciras on Moroccan reforms. These In
structions provide for the acceptance of
th proposal for an Inspector of Moroccan
police, but categorically to reject the claim
that the lntpector shall hold command at
any port.
The ministerial statement will allude to
the maintenance of the Franco-Russian al
liance and highly valued friendly agree
ments with other powers. Internal policy
also will be treated of In detail. The minis
ters will take the view that the church
and state separation law clearly established
the mode of procedure concerning Inven
tories, and will announce that measures
will be taken against the organiserse for
France Avalas Trap.
With reference to the Franco-Oermsn
controversy over Moroccan reforms the
Temps this morning says:
Should Germany maintain Its claim for
an Inspector of-police commanding at Caoa'
iilanca, F'ronce can only oppose her veto
to the humiliating proposition.- -Germany's
insistence on .the exclusion of Caea Blaruia
from a Francoo-Bpanleh mandate Is only
attributable to a desire to obtain part of
Morocco. To the trap thue laid France
prefers th status quo. which would be bet
ter than such an abdication. With accord
with Great Britain and Spain at Fex.
France haa & thousand means of defending
the status quo against German alms.
France already has conceded much and
now la only struggling 'or the minimum of
Its rights and preservation of lis dignity.
