CHICAGO. Oct. 9.-E. O. Moffctt of the
Moffett Commission company of Kansas
City, Mo., was the first witness at to
day's session of the Interstate Commerce
commission, which Is investigating alleged
rebates on grain. Moffett testified that
owing to an allowance of l'i cents per
hundredweight, which he declared Is given
by the Cnlon Tactile Railroad company to
the Peavey Elevator company, which has
a rfumber of elevators In Nebraska, the
elevator company Is enabled to bid a higher
price on the Kansas CIUl Board of Trade
for grain hlpped from polnts.on the Union
Pacific line than any other traders. In
this way, said Moffett. other traders are
plated at a great disadvantage.

oompnnv; 8.rptarv MrVann of the
Omaha Grain exchange and J. T. J. Broad
enax, president of the board of trade of
Kansas City, were the afternoon witnesses'.
Mr. Oower testified that for snme time his
company paid the J. Rnsenbaum Grain
company an allowance of 1'4 cents a
hundredweight on grain elevated by It in
Kansas City. Mr. Gower asserted that It
was necesfiary for the railroad to do this
to compete with the 1'nlon Pacific and
other railroads, which were elevntlng their
own grain.
Secretary McVann, who was the next
witness, denied that the Omatia Grain ex
change has boycotted the 'Chicago. Rock
Island Pnclflc. as was testified by wit
nesses yesterday.
Mr. Broadennx declared that railroads in
Kansas City clean, grade, elfvat ani
clip their grain In their own elevators
without any "thnre charge than the rate
for transportation. In view of this the
private elevator lose monry In shipping
grain, because It owner must pay tne
freight rate as other shippers and besides
stand the expenses of cleaning, grading
and clipping In his own elevator. His
point was that Uie railrondn should allow
the private Independent elevator man a
certain amount to cover this loss. The
hearing will be continued tomorrow.

Five Thousand Dollar la
SAN FKANCI8CO, Oct. 3. Armed with
revolvers and pieces of gasplpe, two rob
bers entered the Japanese bank Klmmon
Glnko, also known aa the Golden Gate
hank, at In, O'Fnrrell street, at noon to
day, and after probably fatally beating two
clerks, escaped with J.VW0 In gold.
The robbers chose a time when there
were but few persons transacting busi
ness in the hank anil the sensational and
bold deed was so quickly effected that It
was all over before the crowd of people
passing the doors of the Institution were
aware of what had taken place. While one
of the hold-up men engaged the paying
tellers of the bank, the other walked to
the rear of the bank and. going behind
the counter, picked up a sack containing
$5.(100. The action of the robber who went
to the rear of tho hunk was witnessed by
one of the clerks, who Immediately raised
a cry of alarm. The cry had scarcely left
his Hps before he was struck down by the
man who was carrying out the gold.
The robber who had lieen talking to the
paying teller drew a piece of gas pipe from
his pocket and struck him a blow that
rendered him unconscious.
' Both robbers stopped long enough to
beat their victims Into unconsciousness and
then walked leisurely from the bank and
disappeared. The crime was discovered a
moment or two later whCn several cus
tomers entered the bank to make deposits.
They found the Japanese lying prone on
the floor and Immediately gave the alarm.
The police arrived shortly afterward and
the two men were taken to the hospital.
There It was said their death probably was
a matter of but a short time. Both ars
believed to have fractured skulls.
Despite the fact that the police In every
portion of the city are on the lookout for
the roblsrra not the slightest trace of them
hue been found.

More Evidence thnt Son of Kansas
City Banker I Victim of
Fonl Piny.
PORTLAND. Ore., Oct. 3. Acting Cor
oner Bagley of Hlllsbnro is so convinced
that Carey Buyder, son of R. M. Snyder,
the Kansas City millionaire, waa murdered
that he has ordered the sheriff of Wash
ington county to reconvene the Jury which
was Impaneled on Monday, when the body
of tho Kansas City banker's ion was found.
A more minute examination of Snyder's
skull by the authorities revealed injuries
at the base of the skull that must have
been made by a bludgeon and which would
have caused death. The belief Is spread
ing that Bnyder was murdered and his
body Kecreted because he knew too much
about the robbery of the Forest Grove
bank last year, though It I not hinted
that he participated In that crime, which
I alleged to have been committed by
George Berry and a man named Brashear.
Snyder's brother-in-law. Perry and Bra
shear are ex-convlcts, having served terms
tn the Kansas penitentiary.

whose real culmination Is thu coronation
of king and queen Friday night.
Crowds attending the annual electrical
pageants havo been estimated in previous
years a high as 2UO,000. Last year's crowd
was variously pluoed ..between 176,000 and
Stxt.OOO. Those estimates may huVe been -correct.

that estimate Is correct then more than

Ak-Bar-Ben last night.
Crowd Get Money' Worth.
The immense crowd wa a fitting trlbule
lo the excellence of the pageant, which
wan admittedly the most beautiful thai
has ever attended the annual function.
Ablaze with myriads of while and colored
lights tho tloats were dazzling to the cyra
of the multitudes. Like a huge dragon
with lights sparkling from every scalo tho
monster procession wprmed Its way down
the street to receive the plaudits of thu
loyal subjects of the old monarch.
And tne people were not slow In showing
their fealty to the king. Gathered from
every corner of Qulvera they vied with
each other in shouting their plaudits. The
float bearing King Ak-Sar-Ben XII was
cheered from the beginning to the end of
the triumphal march. The applause be
in charge of Chief Donahue, appeured to
gan whi n the squad of mounted pollcemta
clear the way and It continued almost un
abated until the lights OS the chariot of
the king had disappeared In the distance.
Certain portions of the parade struck the
popular fancy better than others and re
ceived u larger share of the applause, but
there wus praise, noisy and demonstra
tive, for all of them. The bands, which
had been gathered from all over the realm,
even from the land of the bakotas, drew
rounds 6 applause wherever they dis
coursed. The board of Ak-Sar-Ben governors, with
their pure white uniforms and mounted on
their restive steeds, headed the procession
proper and recelvtd suitable hpmagn from
the masses. The huge title float, "The Na
tions of the Earth," swept past the review
ing stand and was accorded similar hon
ors. Cheers for the nation followed aa
the national representatives passed tha
stand and to all of them Mayor Dahlman
doffed hi hat In salutation.
Climax of Demonstration.
The great demonstration came when tha
gorgeously lighted creation representing
America swept Into view. The cheer for
the national emblem, mingled with those
for King Ak-Sar-Ben, whose regal chariot
was close behind. The applause burst out
spontaneously and re-echoed time after
time. The first float stopped a second
while greetings passed between the mayor
and the occupants. The king's equipage
did not stop nt the reviewing stand. Fol
lowing the precedent set last year the
formality of handing the keys to tha king
; was not observed, although the keys had
been provided and were all ready to be
given Into the roval hands. King and
mayor we're face to face for an Instant
while a sign of recognition passed between
them and then the procession moved on
and the crowd closed In front of ths stand.
Thus was accomplished, amid demonstra
tions of Joy from his loyal anbjects, the
entrance into hla beloved city of King Ak-Bar-Ben
Xll. greatest, of hi line.
Parade Beat of All.
The parade waa a splendid succeea. It
reflected great credit upon It auihots
and executioners. The- theme, "Nation
of the Earth," proved a moat popular
one and one susceptible of great develop
