RELATIONS OF RAILWAYS AND ELEVATORS
Mr, l.aKolletle'a Resolntloa Protldlag
for Investigation of Alleged
II legal Combination
WASHINGTON. D. C. June 26.-The sen
ate today discussed the conference report
on the railroad rate bill for more than f'jur
hours, but did not dispose of It. U was
made evident, however, that another con
ference will be ordered.
The discussion dealt entirely with the
anti-pass nnd commodity amendments, to
both of which objection waa made on vari
ous grounds. Senator Spooner expressed
the opinion that under the pass provision as
reported, senators and members of the
house of representatives would not he pro
hibited from accepting pa"ses, and other
senators construed part of the provision
fts In the Interest of a discrimination in
passes that could he m;id to take, the place
of rebates. Senators Tillman and Lodge
sharply criticised the change In the com
modity amendment so as to prohibit "rail
roads" and not "common carriers" from
engaging in the production of articles to be
transported by themselves, as In the inter
est of the Standard Oil company. '
Senator IaFollette secured favorable ac
tion on a resolution extending the Inquiry
of the Interstate Commerce commission to
the connection between the elevators of I he
northwest and the Tailroads.
Senator Hopklna took exception to the
conference report on the Niagara Falls In
ternational agreement bill. In that It docs
not provide against the treatment of tne
waters of Iike Michigan as subject to in
ternational agreement. The report was,
however, agreed to.

In support of hi contentions Senator Ia
Follette said that testimony taken by the
commission indicates a Joint ownership be
tween the railroads and the elevator com
panies to the detriment of the fanners wln
are entitled to a free and open market. He
then gave the names of Individuals and cor
porations which had secured such Inside
privileges as to give them monopolies along
various western railroad lines, the list given
Including the following:
The Chicago, Hock Island & Pacific,
Charles Counsclman; the -Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul, the Armour F.levator
company; the Atchison, Topeka Ac Santa Fe,
the RIchsnJson company: the ITnlon Paclflo.
the Pevey K levator Minpany: the Chicago
at Northwestern, the Bartlott aV Frar.ier
Elevator company; Chicago, Burlington
Qulncy, the Armour Elevator company.
As going to oontlrm his inference of a
combination, Mr. La Follette said that the
head of the Armour Elevator company Is
a laie stockholder and a director of the
Chicago. Milwaukee St. Paul.
He then read a number of letters and
quoted various statements to show that the
railroad companies favor some elevators to
which they are friendly and discriminate
against others which are not so wall re
garded by them, with the result that the
price of wheat to the producer Is far below
where It should be.
Ho declared tha.t practically all the grain
shipped Into Chicago over any one line
goes to one dealer and expresne-d the opin
ion that tViee wholesale dealers are cioevly
allied among themselves, thus constituting
a virtual monopoly of the grain business
of the country. Senator Nelon cuuflrnitKl

that he had personal knowledge of '.any
instances f discriminations by tlj rail
roads In favor of line elevators JHe had no
doubt. h said, that the h; vrai'.igatlon would
show the same combination between th
railroad companies and the elevator com
panies that had been found to exist be

WASHINGTON, June 'Jt. L'nder a rule
limiting debate on all but two sections,
the so-called Immigration bill was dis
cussed for three hours today and passed
wltimut a yea and nay vote being per
mitted on any of the paragraphs. This
bill at t muled much attention, the repre
sentatives having large foreign culonles In
their districts, lining up generally against
the head tax of SO. which was defeated, and
against the educational test. After an In
teresting contest a substitute for the edu
cational test providing that the whole mat
ter be submitted to a commission waa
adopted by a close vote. The most Im
portant features of the bill were thus
eliminated and the bill was passed with
out division. At 6:36 p. m. the house took
a recess until I o'clouk this evening to
devote three hours to oratory.
When the Immigration bill was taken
up In the committee of the whole the
amendment to the committee bill reducing
the tax from fi to Li waa debated earneaiiy

The Madison Square roof garden, which

principal comedy role In the piece, was

the audience, a series of shots rattled in
the rear of the auditorium and a man In
evening dress was seen to fall scross a
table at which he was sitting with a
party of frlenda. The mttn who had fired
the shots fled, pistol In hand, towards the
nearest exit, where he was selxcd and

In January he waa pleased to receive a
letter from the secretary of John D. Rocke
feller Inviting him to visit him In New
York with a view to the financing of his
work. Judge Lindsay went to New York,
lecturing snd being lavishly entertained
on his trip, speaking, with Secretary Taft
to Introduce him, before the school children
of Chicago. The St. Andrews' societies of
the east entertained him and listened to
him; he visited the president and was hon

During his trip he arranged with the
workers In the different cities to meet at

to promise a first Installment of 6,(sr),'VJ

Judge Llndsey returned to Denver and
gave the story to the press. Ths leaders

Judge Lindsay was unable to attend ihe

easily effected aa most of the leaders In the

The federation and the whole matter of

on the table. No reason wss given. Judex
IJndsny was bitterly disappointed. He
asked to have a convention of Juvenile

Issued the call. The convention was to be
held st Hull House, Chicago.

The object of . the Juvenile association Is
to do away with ths Juvenile court aa It

part cf the Colorado laws. In studying
the reasons why the children went wrong.
Judge Lindsay worked out the theory that
the fundamertal cause of all the mis
demeanors of children boys snd girls lies
In ths Idleness of the child. For exa- pie.

Is the one who Is brought Into court with
