CHICAOO. III., July I -The Chicago
Alton railroad and John N. Falthorn and
Fred A. M'inn, formerly ofTlclala of th
road. were today convicted In the t'nlrrd
States district court of illegally granting
rebates to the Schwarxechlld Sulxberger
Packing company. No sentence waa im
posed today by Judge Landls. pending the
arguments for a new trial for the defend
ant, which will be heard tomorrow morn
Ing. It was claimed by the government
that the officials of the ratlrojd company
had allowed tha employe of the packing
company to travel free of expense by re
funding to thera all money expended for
transportation. H waa declared by the
court that thla did not comprtae a rebate,
and he instructed tha Jury that a verdict
f not guilty should be returned aa to the
counia of tha Indictment which charged
the giving of rebate In connection with
thla passenger transportation.
In tha other eight counts of the Indict
ment on. all of which the defendanta were
found guilty, two offenaea agalnat the Elk
Ina law were proved. It waa ahown by the
government that tha railroad company had
Charged 14 per car for handling tha prod
ucts of Schwarsaehlld Sulxberger at
Kanaaf City and had then repaid tha pack
ing company $1 on each car. The govern
ment claimed, and the court held that the
failure of the railroad to publlah In lta
tariff aheet tha fact that the tl waa re
paid made It In fact a eecret rebate. It
waa claimed by tha attorney for the de
fendanta that the refund of the tl per car
waa neceaaary becauae the packing com
pany owned the railroad track near lta
plant and compelled tha railroad company
to pay that amount for trackage when It
hauled tha cara away.
Under the law the maximum aentence of
tha court may be a fine of 1120.000 for each
of the three defendanta. No Imprisonment
provision appear In tha law. There are
two specific allegations of rebating alleged

Lower Hoose Another Mora
a Toward a Responsible
ST. PETERSBURG. July .-Whll the
action of the lower house of Parliament
today In appropriating IT.SOO.onO to be dis
pensed by the administration for famine
relirf was epochal, aa the first recognition
of t"e cabinet by Parliament and the first
step in Joint work. Its Importance was far
overshadowed by the revelation of alleged
admissions made by Minister of Finance
Kokovsoff In the budget commission about
tlie padding of estimates for the liquid
ation of sir expenses. In order to be abl"
to extract a larger loan from the foreign
markets. These developments made an Im
mense sensation and were eagerly dis
cussed In the corridors of the chamber,
where It was declared that If the state
ment of the commission members were true
It plsced Russian financial methoda on a
par w ith those of mushroom Bouth Amer
irsn republics and would undermine the con
fidence of foreign financiers In the old
guard now msnsging Russian finances and
Immensely complicate future credit oper
ations. AH this naturally Is flsh for the net of the
constitutional democrats, who see In the
revelations the brightest prospect for for
cing the transfer of administrative power to
a responsible cabinet.
All of today's moves of the constitutional
democrats point to a realisation of their
expectation that they may soon be en
trusted with the full responsibility of gov
ernment, unhampered a bureaucratic min
istry. The speeches of floor leader Nabouk-
off and othera on Thursday during the de
bate on the BldelnJkoff Incident show that
the decision to break with the extremists
and socialists, aa foreshadowed In the re
cent Interview of the Associated Press with
Ivan Pctmnkevltch. haa been definitely
taken and that the party leaders are now
looking forward to constructive work In
place of merely destructive criticism , of
Warnlag from the Rech.
The Rech today, discussing the efforts
made In the British House of Commons to
Induce the British government not to send a
fleet to Cronstadt. says:
Whether the fleet comes or does not
eome, the sympathy of the Engiisn wnn
the struggle of the Russian democracy for
constitutional inatttutions Is already proved.
The same Is true of Prance. Aa regards
Germany, It Is tha sole supporter of the
old regime In Russia. Emperor William
prefers to maintain the sources of weak
ness of the Russian state In order to profit
thereby, but Emperor Nicholas should re
member th danger of outside Interference.
It was the duke of Brunswick' threat to
destroy Part If King Louis was harmed
which forfeited the king's head."
During the debate in the lower house of
Parliament today on ' th Blalystok report
an orthodox priest, Pather Aranasleff, a
radical member from the Don province.
fiercely denounced the policy of the gov
ernment, whloh, he declared, Instead of
being diretced to pacifying the country,

AERONAUT CARRIED CUT TO SEA
Prareidewe Balloonist Picked t p hy
- FiiMss BoapW it. ?!. !fv
BOSTON. July 1 After one of the most
remarkable experience in the history of
aerial navigation. James K. - Allen, the
aeronaut who made a balloon ascension
at Providence on the Fourth of July, wss
brought to this port tonight on the Ashing
schooner Francis V. Sylvia. Allen was
picked tip at sea twelve miles off Chatham
at 7:30 o'clock yesterday morning, eighteen
and a half hour after his departure from
Allen hnd a narrow escape from death
by drowning, the winds that prevailed
Wedneaday having blown hla balloon
long distance from shore. Until news of
hla arrival here became known it had been
thought that he had met hla death, aa It
was known that at the last time he was
aighted on Wednesday evening he was
traveling out to sea.
That Allen is alive tonight Is due wholly
to a fortunate shift of the wind. When
he made his ascension st Providence on
Wednesday the wind wss blowing s brisk
breeze from the southwest. The aeronaut
was carried In his balloon in a northeasterly
direction and passed over the town of
Attleboro. He had his balloon under per
feet control at that time and while in the
vicinity of Attleboro he descended twice.
From Attleboro the airship traveled In
the direction of Brockton, and the las
seen of th aeronaut by observer on shore
waa when he passed over Scltuate early In
the evening. At that time the balloon
was headed straight ont to ac'a. When
Thursday dawned without any news being
received from Allen and It became known
that the last time he was seen was when
he was on the ocean shore headed out to
sea It was then believed that he .would
never return. Alter Allen paaaed over
Maaaachuaetta bay hla plight was more
perilous. Wedneaday night he waa over
Provlncetown. At thla point of the voyage
the wind shifted from southwest to north
east, and from Provlncetown th balloon
ailed down the outer Cape Cod cos at.
At 7 to the aeronaut waa rescued twelve
mile ff Chatham by the fishermen of th
Sylvia. The balloon wa aaved In good
condition and wa brought to Boston on
th schoner. During his flight Allen cov
ered a total distance of about Jnn mile,
nearly half of which wa over the water.
The point where he ill picked up Is about
seventy-seven miles from Providence.

methoda. It Is a mistake to conxlder th-ir
presence a menace. There ought to be In
every public library in every city of any
else at laaat the clasalca in several
languages to win the confidence of these
people snd to draw them to these libraries.
Once there they should find elementary
text books In chics and other literature
that will be helpful to theni In their new
relations, translated from Kngllsh into their
own language. In other words, securing
them as patrons of the public library hy
their own claaaics. we ahould minister to
their needs precisely as we minister In
the needs of our own people. No such
texts exist, even in English. It is this
very point upon which discussion ought to
turn what this association may be able to
accompllah In the way of preparing or
securing the preparation of such texta.
