STICRNEY ON NEW RATE LAW
firtat Western rresidsnt Fiji it Can Bt
Eaforoed la Toto.
INTERSTATE COMMISSION RESPONSIBLE
If ' It Falls la
tlckaey gays It
Condensed by the
A. B. Stlckney, president of the Chicago
Great Western, .has presented a list of ar
guments to- th Interstate Commerce com
mission, showing the Importance of enfor
cing the provisions of th Interstate com
merce law In respect to making and pub
lishing rates. Mr. Stlckney' argument Is
that the. present system of filing rates I
Illegal, and that some scheme could be de
vised whereby the rate could be pub
lished In a uniform way which a layman
could understand. Instead of having a
Jumbled mess, which the rate Clerk alone
of the whole railroad system, not to men
tion the public, can make any head or tall
out of. Mr. Stlckney cites as an Instance
a book published by a Mr. Stebblns In Des
Moines which upsets the assertions of the
traffic managers that achodules cannot be
made and published In the manner the law
"Against these assertions of the traffic
managers I make the moat positive asser
tion," says Mr. Stlckney. "that schedules
meeting all the requirements of the law
can be made, because schedules of the clas
sified rates of the western lines from such
commercial centers' as Chicago and Mil
waukee, St. Paul and Minneapolis and
Council Bluffs and Omsha to all western
stations, alphabetically arranged in one
book, ln such form that merchants can, by
Inspection, determine the rates, have been
How They Were Manipulated.
Mr. Stlckney's argument shows how
schedules have been manipulated for the
benefit of certain shippers and how they
will be ln the future, and that the ma
jority of these schedule are prepared es
pecially for some form of sculduggery. He
"It Is my deliberate conviction that If
the making of such Illegal schedules as are
designed to secure temporary tonnage to
the railway by the groaaest discriminations
ln respect to rate were stopped by enfor
cing the law In regard to schedule making
more than 99 per cent of the- present
schedule making would be stopped."
Mr. Stlckney maintains the whole remedy
Is In the strict enforcement of the inter
state commerce law by the commission ap
pointed to enforce the law. He says:
The law glvee the commission ample
and effective power to compel the making
and publication of the schedules In accord
ance with the law, which would prevent
and render physically impossible the dis
crimination as now practiced by manipu
Mr. Stlckney maintains the . whole sche
dule could be printed In book form like
the official railway guide, and could be
made, so all could understand. He Insists
It Is not In accordance with the law to
simply print one sheet when a change ln
tariff Is made, but that the whole book
should be reprinted.
Opinions of His Counsel.
Mr. Stlckney has appended the opinion
of his attorney to his argument, and this
ends with- this sentence:
. "If the Interstate Commerce commission
Is desirous of obeying the law It expects
the carriers to obey, It is clearly Its duty
to prevent the filing of Illegal schedules,
supplements and amendment."
Mr. Stlckney adds:
The new law Is now In effect. The rail
way companies desire to obey It. But owing
to the Impossibility of so many railway
companies coming to a unanimous agree
ment upon the details of schedule making,
the conipanlea, without the aid of the
oommlselon, are unable to adopt a form
which will prevent the manipulation of the
schedules. The responsibility rests with the
Interstate Commerce commission. The law
deprives the Individual of his natural right
to protect his equal privileges upon the na
tion's . great highways and confers the
nower and duty of Drotecting Individual
rights upon the commission alone. No
longer can the commission plead want of
power as a Justification for Inaction, as
the amended law gives ample means and
power to enforce the law, which. If exer
cised with Intelligence and courage, will
confer the expected benefits upon the peo-
File. If tne commission perrorms its auiy
ts members will be rewarded with the re
spect of Its fellow-men. If It falls, they
will merit and receive the contempt of
their fellow-cltlsens, and the law, Instead
of doing Justice, will become an Instru
mentality ot injustice.

ALASKA'S INDISPENSABLE DOGS
They Are the Bnrden Bearers of a
Large Khar ot the Inrrens-
The nstlve Alaska dog Is known as th
"htiskle." or "malar.ioot," and Is a mongrel
one-half timber wolf. He has character
istics which especially fit him for his work-
he Is heavy set, with a thick coat of long
hair. Impervious to cold, and with Just
enough wolf In his nature to make him
restless, eager to go, and with a atfflclent
mixture of dog to temper a fierceness and
treachery which might, nnd sometimes does,
become dangerous. AH this Is understood
In fact, carefully studied and watched by
the Alaskan, and those qualities which
manifest themselves ln fidelity and gentle
ness are encouraged by kind treatment,
while the wolfish side of their nature Is
quickly and effectually subdued by numer
ous whippings. These anlmnls have not
yet learned to express themselves by bark
ing, and the only noise they can make Is
a dismal howl. It Is a rare occurrence for
them to bit, a human being, but they will
fight among themselves on the slightest
provocation, and It Is not an uncommon
sight for half a dosen "huskies" to hold a
pitched battle on the main street of Fair
banks. A bucket of cold water will gen
erally put them to flight, but In the major
ity of cases the miners pay no attention to
the melee and allow the dogs to fight It
The wolf nature manifests Itself In their
thieving propensities, and all food must be
"cached" out of their reach. A hungry
"huskle" will open a box of canned beef
with ease by biting through the tin. He
will lie before the door of a tent or cabin,
pretending to be asleep, when In reality he
Is waiting for a chance to ransnck the
kitchen. One day I saw a miner's dinner
wrecked by his own dog, a splendid, big,
wolfish fellow, who overturned a pot of
beans and in the most unconcerned man
ner walked off with the hot bacon In his
mouth. No matter what depredations they
may commit, severe punishment, so as to
cripple of kill them, is out of the ques
tion, on account of their great value In th
transportation of supplies. It Is an in
ferior dog that Is not worth $40, and many
of them, say their masters, are not for
Two good dogs can haul a man forty or
fifty miles a day on a good trail, or carry
from 600 to 600 pounds of freight about
twenty mile In six hours. They are faith
ful to the last degree, and will work even
when, weak from lack of food. When In
thla condition, however, they sometimes
become dangerous, and should the driver

SHOOTING OF KNIGHTON IS JUSTIFIED
Wyomlna- Ranchman Telia of th
Affair at the Big: Red Ranch
Which Has Attracted So
Lee Moore, a prominent ranchman of
Douglas, Wyo., Is visiting ln the city, the
guest, of John H. Tuthlll. Mr. Moore Is
Interested in th case of Miss Edna Irvine,
th young woman who shot George H.
Knighton on the Letter Cattle company's
Big Red ranch, near Clearmont, on Sep
tember i. Mr. Moore's Interest Is to th
extent of a long acquaintance with tho
young woman and her family, he having
been the one to teach Miss Irvine to ride
the range and throw the rope. That Miss
Irvine Is one of nature's noble women Mr.
Moore Is willing to stake his last chip.
Mlaa Irvine Well Known.
Testerday afternoon Mr. Moore told tha
following In connection with Miss Irvine
and the shooting:
"I feel that anything I can say to have
Mlsa Irvine's position In the shooting cor
rectly understood Is my bounden duty. We
always called her 'Little Edna' out our
way. By nature she Is talented and viva
clous, yet she has womanly modesty, not
withstanding her life with cowboy and tm
the range. She Is known throughout Wyo
ming. While with the Ogalalla outfit
Edna's father was general manager and I
was foreman. It was In those days that I
taught the little miss how to ride her
mount, and a more apt pupil I never saw.
By the way, her father sold Bill Paxton
the first stock he owned at the Ogalalla
Act of n Tenderfoot.
'But what I want to get down to Is the
shooting. ' That man Knighton, well, you
know, Is a tenderfoot and came his braga
docclo over Miss Edna. She would not
stand for it. H s a lucky dog he Is not
dead. And then, th coward, to file a
charge against th woman. None but a
tenderfoot would file a charge against a
woman for shooting him. But 1 want to
tell you Miss Irvine was fully Justified in
doing what she did, In my opinion. Knigh
ton had been vexing Mis Irvln and her
mother for month. What girl with her
temperament would have stood It? As for
carrying a pistol, why, that Is part of her
outfit. She could pick off a prairie chicken
white you were looking at It I believe In
fair play, and I want to see that Mlsa
Irvine gets It in the newspaper, and I am
sure she will In this neck of the woods."

Fsrley does pot say that it waa the lust
of excitement snd his courage which
prompted hln to seek this dangerous
work, but It was. The men wh em
ployed him then read him Just as he hos
been reading others since. He waa made
a forehand of a squad of nonunion em
ployes, and in directing this small force
he conceived the organisation of the one
he controls today. . When the strike was
broken h took th name and addresses
of the men over whom he had been work
ing and asked them if the wanted to
break another strike. They said they
did. They had not heard that th great
Philadelphia strike waa brewing. A few
weeks later each one ot those men got a
telegram from Farley directing him to re
port to him in Philadelphia.
"I went over to Philadelphia from
Brooklyn," said Farley, one day ln speak
ing ot that time, "and asked them if they
could use some men who could run cars
and would taks a chance. They told me
to get together all I 'could, and that was
the real beginning of my business."
Since then there hss been hardly a labor
disturbance affecting street railway .com
panies on thla continent In which Farley
has not played a part. He has been as
saulted by' strikers and he has been shot at
a hundred times. Two bullets have found
their way into Inconsequential parts of his
anatomy, and one has yet to be removed.

by a distressed looking young man with
whom he hod a slight acquaintance, and
asked to do this little kindness: "My wife
