Speaking of the objects of the expedi

t was responsible for the getting together
of the party, It having occurred to me that
members of the senate and congress might
like to see for themselves the condltlun
of things under which the gigantic work
of digging the canal is being carried out.
My two colleagues and myself from Cali
fornia are more or less authorities on the
Asiatic labor question, which at the pres
ent tirr.e has the west in ferment. The

t'AMi'BELL WINS l.N T1IK FOII1TH
Is Clever, bat Lacks
- Stalna" I'onrti.
Tommy Campbell of Omaha won a fat
four-round boxing context before the Gt
liorf Athletic club at Oathofl's hail Friday
night from Kid Sherman of Winnipeg In
what was scheduled to be s six-round
go. Campbell was credited by the referee
with havuiK scored a knockout, but little
glory for tue ariair can be given the vic
tor, as the vanquished furnished all the
naming and moat of the amusement for
tne large crowd.
Nhermarl came to Omaha without a fol
lowing and was practically a stranger In
puglllbtlc circles here, although he had won
borne clever exhibitions in Canada. His
tight of Friday night made him manr
friends, however, and he was constantly
cheered by the crowd for his clever and
game qualities as a boxer. Sherman Went
at Campbell at the tap of the gong and
forced the righting at all times. Sherman
was not in the best of condition and the
honors were even at the end of the first.
Some clever boxing was furnished In both
rounds, Campbell displaying his usual
agiluy in footwork, while Uherman landed
a blow on Campbell's face in a clinch,
reaching clear around behind his body to
land on Campbell's head, which was under
hie arm. The third round was a whirl
wind of blows by both boxers, with Camp
bell holding Sherman's hand repeatedly
In the clinches, bherman was plainly wary
of his antagonist, but forced the lighting,
and would have made a better showing If
he had not si continually exposed his body.
The fourth and llnal round was Campbell's,
as he had Bherman completely winded and
unable to land a forceful blow. Campbell
struck several blows that landed low and
Sherman s seconds claimed a foul, but It
was not allowed. Campbell finally forced
Bherman lnio a corner and administered
punishment at will, Bherman finally slip
ping to the floor and taking the count.
Ouy Buckles and Kid Strupplth fough a
laughable four-round preliminary. Buckles
toyed with his opponent, who was plainly
a novice In the ring, and Seemed to think
it was a huge joke Instead of being afraid
of the consequences.
Before the contests Kid Jensen, who
foukht Paddy McMuhon a few days ago
with a broken right torearm for five rounds,
was inlroauceo ana was given a iiru.ijr
reception by the fight fana He and Camp

It Is understood that western railway lines
generally favor a free interehiuiKe of freight
oars but that eastern roads have refused
to enter into such an agreement. The rea
son for this difference, it Is si Id, Is that
eiistern romla are profit big by present con
ditions and are' using many thousand chtS
belonging to western roads, and their own
equipment as well, causing a inrlous short
age to exist in the west and south. Western
lines have been forced to Issue an order
that such cars as they have left are not to
leave their own respective tracks.
Prontj Favors Interchange.
After the hearing had adjourned Commis
sioner Prouty said:
An Interchange of ears by all the rail
roads would do awny with much of the
shipping trouble. And then, this country
Is a long way from New York. Owners
of railways are not thoroughly fnml.lar wl;h

M. A. Low, attorney for the Rock Island,
In making the closing statement for tha
rill roads, said that his road did not lack
motive power to move freight and that it
could care for all the business offered If it
could get possession of all the cars It owns.
He said that penalising the railroads for
failure to supply cars when ordered by ship
pers will have no good effect. He said that
any legislation should be along remedial
lines and should not Impose a penalty upon
the railroads for something they cannot
avoid under present conditions.
Commissioner Prouty left for Washington
tonight. The report of his Investigations
in the west will be Incorporated In a gen
eral report of freight conditions in the
United States to be submitted to Presi
dent Roosevelt and congress. ,
W. R. Wright, an agent for the Inter
state Commerce commission, who had In
vestigated the -freight congestion at Gal
veston, testified that he believed the
trouble.there was to some extent the fault
of the railroads In not making sufficient
preparation for a rush of business of which.

Defense of 'Frisco 1,1 ne. '
Commissioner Prouty invited the reprs-
scnatlves of the railroads to present their
defense to the charges which had bee
made by the shippers snd W. T. Tyl
general western and southern manager of
the "Frisco, took the stand. Mr. Tyler said,
that his road was not to biume for the
hardships which shippers had suffered bar
cause of a shortage Of cars. . He Bald that
3,000 or 4,000 cars belonging to the 'Frlsoo
were in the possession of other roads. He-
denied that the 'Frisco discriminated In
favor of certain shippers. He said that thp
practice of grain men in Kansas City of
holding loaded wheat cars until the wheat
was Inspected, sold and reconBlgned should,
cbase. Commissioner Prouty bIbo con
demned this practice. Mr. Tyler said that
the recent order Issued by the 'Frisco that
cars loaded with lump and nut coal could
not be transferred to other lines was caused
by the Inability of this road to get pos
session of all Its cars. He said that slack
coal was not Included in the order because
this character of coal could not be disposed
of at points along the 'Frisco.
F. 8. Rawlins, traffic manager of the
Kansas City Southern, advocuted the In
terchange of curs among the railroads. He
said his road had lost 3,5"iO freight cars In
four months and that 2,000 of theie cars,
belonged to other lines.
