Representative cey of Iowa took a
pronouncod position In opposition to the
adjournment of congress for the Christ

for the house to adjourn and then Jam all
legislation through under whip and spur
during the closing days."
The expression was called out In con

ing force rf the house
Mr. Fitzgerald of New York had Just
concluded a speech la opposition to thd
resolution, in which he had sharply criti
cised the mistakes In appropriation bills
made at the close of the Ust session. Mr.
Lacty declared that owing to the policy
of holding the principal work on the ap
propriation bills until the closing days of
tue session, the enrolling clerks had worked
forty-eight hours In succession, and he
contended that under such circumstances
mistakes were to be expected.
Mr. Clark of Missouri, declared that the
statement made by Mr. Lacey about the
Idiocy pf adjourning at holidays was the
most sensible thing he had said for the '
last twelve years. i

said he believed It would be a mise thing

creep Into appropriation bills during the
closing hours of congress would be ellmin

I Mr. Tawney of Minnesota, chairman of

Mr. Clurk to specify some of the "Jobs"

Judge here on the bench, the Jurv sitting
here In this box. the officials of the gov

Inquiry Into the facts, and It becomes the

of a crime by these defendants Is some
thing of personal malice on the part of
the government attorneys and the Depart

President James J. Hill of the Great

a disappointment. To be sure, Mr. Hill
came to the hearing fortified with a mass
of figures to prove that conditions outside
the control of the railroads were alone
responsible for delay In traffic.
Sew Lines Building.
"We are to build a line from Aneta, N. D.,
to Devil s Lake, N. D.," began Mr. Hill.
"This would mean practically an alternate
line to the Twin Cities. We are also build
ing a double track line from Devil's Lake
to Rugby, N. D. This would mean a great
diversion of the traffic In that section, but
owing to the inability to secure labor we
could not complete either of these con
structions this year. They will be con
structed by next spring. We are within
twelve miles of Devil's Lake, but could
not complete the work for this fall's crop.
There Is no place In the United States
where the growth has been ss rapid as
along the line of the Great Northern. The
Improvement is tremendous and presents a
problem of vast magnitude to the railroads.
The tonnage mile has increased from
606,000 In Wi, to 1,093,000 tons In 1903, and
almost doubled since then to the present
time. I have left a sick room to come here
and give these facts. They are records
taken from the books of the company, and I
beg the commissioners to investigate deeply
Into this question."
'What do you think of J. W. Mldgeley's
scheme for an equal exchange of cars be
tween roads, or the penalty of a fine for
each car over an equal exchange in the
service of a company?" was asked.

that would require railroads to provide
equipment sufficient to meet Its trafflo
Mr. Starr testified that there are In op
eration at present In- the United States
1,800,000 freight cars. About 90,000 of these
must be rebuilt every year.
The Pennsylvania railroad owns, he said,
about 12 per cent of the total freight equip

"The producing capacity of the car fac
tories of the United States," said the wit
ness, "is about 180,000 cars a year.
"To keep up with the country's develop
ment the car plants should be able to
build at least 270,000 cars a year."
