a roast. Tim Hurst and Elberfeld engage
In many passages in repartee.
It waa in Cleveland one day, and It was
hot at that. Tim was having considerable
trouble keeping cool. The Kid came up
with tire in his eye. One came up that
was up around the Kid's chin. Tim said,
The Kid looked around and smiled; then
the crowd began to roar, giving Elberfeld
"the laugh."
' Tim, do you know that the last ball
that came over was aa high aa your trous

hat; we have a good crowd here today."
Tim looked down at the trousers, then
looked at the Kid and said:
"All right. Kid. I will have them
neatly pressed tomorrow."

Turner from Omaha, who Is able to give

Some wise ones are ready with the dope
that Cleveland and New York are the two
teams to fight out the pennant race In the

WASHINGTON, Jan. Sl.-8enator Ray
ners address on the expansion of execu
tive prerogatives. Senator Lodge's brief
reply and an extended discussion of the
administration of public land laws by Sen
ator Heyburn constituted today's proceed
ings In the senate.
Disclaiming any Intention of "assailing"
President Roosevelt, and professing for
him profound personal esteem. Senator
Rayner of Maryland today addressed the
senate In critical review of what he termed
the president's "usurpation of governmental
function not conferred on him by the con
stitution. "
He first alluded to the recent speech of
Secretary Root. In which he described the
gradual enlargement of federal power at
the expense of the states. "I regard this
doctrine," said Mr. Rayner, 'as a most
dangerous and Insidious attack on the In-
atltutlons of the country," He said that
because these doctrines "must be taken,
as they were Intended to be taken, as mani
festing the purpose of the administration
to carry this new doctrine of constitutional
construction Into execution whenever - the
opportunity or emergency may arise for Its
Before reviewing the specific actions of
the president which met his criticism, Mr.
Rayner remarked: "The president is la
boring under the honest Impression that
he Is responsible to the country for the
legislation of congress."
The first Instance of "conflict" between
the executive and legislative functions, Mr.
Rayner said, was In the San Domingo af
fair. In which, he said, "the president has
evidently made his own treaty." Without
discussing whether the treaty is right, he
said: 'The charge that I make Is that he
haa accomplished this In violation of the
constitution. The treaty has been prac
tically carried into effect without consult
lng the senate." The same means, he
said, might be employed for the collection
of debts from any Central or South Ameri
can republic.
Judiciary Should Be Free
Mr. Rayner turned his attention to the
Judiciary, announcing his belief that it
ought to be free from executive Interfer
ence. "It is therefore my Judgment," he
added, "that the criticism by the presi
dent of Judge Humphrey with reference
to his decision in the case known as the
meat packers' case in the Illinois court
waa an invasion of Judicial prerogativea"
Mr. Rayner then pronounced his disap
proval of the president for his "intrusion"
upon the states, taking for example the
note of the president to Governor Guild of
Massachusetts, In which the course of the
governor waa commended In refusing to
Interfere In the carrying out of the death
sentence against Charles L. Tucker. "I
never knew a communication of this sort
to be sent by a president to the governor
of a state since the foundation of the re
public," said Mr. Rayner, "and I deeply
regret and deplore the occurrence. It
would have been extremely good taste for
Governor Guild to have respectfully re
mitted this telegram to the president with
a caution that he did not request the presi
dent's opinion In the case nor the sanction
of his high station to the carrying out of
the execution."
While admitting that no technical viola
tion of any provision of the constitution
was Involved, Mr. Rayner contended that
It was a practical announcement that the
acts of state officials were subject to the
approval or displeasure of the federal gov
ernment. Railroad Legislation.
The turbulent times In the senate at
tendant on the passage of the railroad rate
bill were next alluded to by Mr. Rayner.
"The president came Into the game early,"
he began, and then added, "we realize that
no fight Is thoroughly equipped upon this
floor unless the president Is In It. He longs
for a fight as the heart panteth after the
water brooks. It was a match to the finish
between the senior senator from Rhode
island (Aldrich) and the president." The
1 mo8t wonderful exhibition of the president's
J pe, , congress Mr. Rayner believed to
have been at the time of legislating for the
sea level canal. After describing this fight
he remarked, "It shows how the dominating
spirit of the president can ride the whlrl-
w,"d, when he ha. made up hi. mind to
legislate, and how In absolute defiance of
the laws of nature he can produce a
senatorial vacum beneath the sweep of his
mighty genius."
The Schley case was the next topic re
viewed by Mr. Rayner, particularly with
reference to the president's action In the
matter. He predicted that the Schley case
would yet be reopened Just as a similar
case had recently been In another land.
"Admiral Schley shall be heard," he an
nounced, "living or dead. I have never
known an unjustlce of this sort to have
been done that the occasion did not arise
to redress It."
Tawrlttea Constitution."
The result of the president's construction
of his prerogatives, Mr. Ray nor said, had
I ralfd MW chool of scribers who had
commenced to edit a revised edition
of the constitution called "The Vn-
written Constitution." The president Is
the prophet of this new creed. "But," he
added, "one thing he has no right to do.
and that Is to use the vast public patronage
at his disposal to compel obedience to his
views. Another thing he has no right to
do and that is to make compacts with the
speaker of ths house of representatives or
Its committees, to accomplish or prevent
legislation. He has no right either the
yond his messages In which he Is given the
right at any time to suggest any measure
he may deem proper or necessary) to Inter
fere with legislation and to force congress
either to adopt his recommendations, or If
it rejects them to bring about a breach
between the legislative and executive de
partments that Is detrimental to the best
Interests of the country. That constitutes
an assumption of dictatorial power, which
the people of this republic will not submit
In concluding Mr. Rayner said:
"I believe that If the democratic party
would take up as Its battlecry the reserved
rights of the states, and the Inviolate con
stltutloned distinction of the legislative, the
Judclal and the executive departments, that
we could rally around the doctrine the In
telligent suffrages of our countrymen."
6enator Lodge, responding briefly to Mr.
Rayner, declared that nothing the presi
dent had ever said had gone so far to
ward advocating a revolution of our pres
ent governmental system as had Mr. Bry
an's declaration for the government owner
ship of railroads.
In reply to Mr. Lodge, Senator Carmack
said that while Mr. Bryan had expressed
the opinion that If government regulation
should fall government ownership ought to
come, the president had said that If gov
ernment regulation should fall government
ownership would have to come. He con
cluded that there was no substantial differ
ence between the president and Mr. Bryan
on that subject.
Heyhnra Criticises Hltrheoek.
Senator Heyburn then continued his crit
icism ot the special order ot the secretary
of the Interior, which forbids the issuance
of a patent to lands untU after an exam
ination on the ground by a special agent.
Mr. Heyburn asserted that the creation
of foreat reserves had raised the price of
wood for fuel In hla state 75 per cent, and
the price ot lumber generally from 13 to $5
a thousand feet. He said 18.000,000 acres of
land In Idaho had been converted Into
forest reserves. He could make no explan
ation of the policy being pursued unless
It was "greed of power."
Senator Carter Interrupted the discussion
to stste that last year not less than 150,-
000 settlers on land In western states mi
grated to Canada. The reason was, he said,
because settlers were tiring of the Increas
ing restrictions and embarrassments being
thrown In their way by the administration
of the public land laws. His statistics
showed that ten years ago but forty-seven
settlers migrated to Canada In a year.
Mr. Heyburn had not concluded when the
senate adjourned.

Charge that Committee Discriminated
Against Middle West.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 81 The river and
harbor appropriation bill occupied praetlo
ally all the time of the house today. After
a short colloquy over the division of time
and the paternal advice of the speaker to
allow the chairman of the commltee of the
whole (Mr. Currier of New Hampahire) to
control the general debate, the debate was
begun by Mr. Burton of Ohio, chairman of
the rivers and harbors committee. Other
speeches were made by Messrs. Bartholdt
of Missouri, Ransdell of Louisiana, Snapp
of Illinois, Lawrence of Massachusetts,
Caudrey of Missouri, Morrel and Moore of
Pennsylvania, Bannon of Ohio, Rhodes of
Mississippi and the resident commissioner
of Porto Rico, Julio Tarrlnago. Mr. Bar
tholdt charged that the committee in draft
ing the measure discriminated against the
middle west In favor of the east and south.
The house today went Into committee of
the whole for consideration of the rivers
and harbors appropriation bllL
Chairman Burton, In making the opening
statement said It was the largest rivers
and harbors bill ever presented to congress,
and the best.
"New projects," said Mr. Burton, "are
not adopted unless provision is made for
In providing for the completion of new
projects radical departure Is made In the
bill from former methods. "It has been
thought best," Mr. Burton remarked, "to
undertake no new Improvement unless the
whole amount required for Its completion,
whether the project Involves large or small
expense. Is appropriated or authorised."
In the discussion of the rivers and har
bors bill of 1902, Mr. Burton said there had
been a popular misapprehension to the ef
fect that a very large amount of money
had been appropriated for rivers and creeks
of trivial Importance, but' It was shown
that by the act of that year only 8417,000
had been appropriated for small streams.
Speaking of the Hennepin canal, Mr.
Burton traced the agitation In favor of
It to the popular feeling, but he doubted
If it would be of the advantage anticipated.
Mr. Graff of Illinois suggested that pos
sibly the popularity had been due to the
former chairman of the rivers and harbors
committee. General D. B. Henderson, who
represented that locality In congress and
he suggested that possibly location was the
dominating Influence against It today. To
this Mr. Burton replied that It would prob
ably be a good thing If the present chair
man's "dominating influence" could be de
veloped to "the prevention of objectionable
projects" which brought him a round of
applause. . . -
Representative Bartholdt of Missouri, one
of the champions of a foui teen-foot channel
between St. Louis and Chicago, which the
committee refused to Include in the bill,
followed Mr. Burton. He charged that the
committee, under the Influence of Its chair
man (Mr. Burton), ' had unfairly discrim
inated against that project In favor of the
rival route from the lakes to the Missis
sippi by way of . the Pittsburg St Lake
Erie canal and the Ohio. Mr. Bartholdt
asserted that there was a combination of
the east and the south In the committee
against the middle west,
Mr. Ransdell of Louisiana said the rail
roads were beginning to realize that waters
must be Improved to relieve the freight
congestion which Is alarming the public.
The result, he said. Is a decided change
In the sttltude ot the railways toward
waterway Improvement. He spoke of the
recommendation of President J. J. Hill of
the Great Northern railway, that a fifteen-
foot waterway be provided from Chicago
to the ; gulf, and said that the far
sightedness of that railroad official was
thoroughly well known.
Some Savins; to Be Made In New Mall
WASHINGTON. Jan. 81. A compromise
of the proposed reduction In railway mall
pay was agreed upon today between rep
resentatives of various railroads which
hava maU contracts and the house com
mittee 'on poatofflces and post roads. The
proposition to compromise and waive a
hearing was made through Representative
Hedge of Iowa. The bill provided for a
S per cent reduction on all contracts over
routes averaging 48,000 pounds a day; a 10
per cent reduction on all routes averag
ing from 48.000 to 80,000 pounds per day.
and a flat rate of $18 per ton per mile per
year on all routes averaging more than
0.000 pounds a day. . Through Mr. Hedge
the railway men sgreed to accept this cut
providing that the flat rate on routes over
80.000 pounds a day be Increased to 20 a
The committee agreed to Increase the
rate from 118 to (19 and this was accepted.
In addition to reducing the price per ton
which railways are to be paid for haul
lng mall, which will amount to at least
13.000,000, the committee has approved o
cut of tl.000.000 in the amount to be paid
to railways for the rent of mall cars. The
committee also decided that the weight of
mall bags must not hereafter be added to
the weight of mall In computing the amount

SAN FRANCISCO. Jan. Sl.-Evldence
that tends to show- that the operation of
E. H. Harrlman on the coast constitutes a
violation of the Interstate commerce law
was brought out before . Commissioner
Franklin K. Lane today. C. A. Severance,
attorney for the commission, Introduced
evidence to prove his contention that Har
rlman paid a price out of proportion to
the value of the Coos Bay properties In
order to put competition out of the way.
Harrlman, Attorney Severance maintained,
was not buying coal mines primarily; he
was buying monopoly. j
D. A. Graham, who supplied this testi
mony, created another sensation berore no
left the stand. He said that when Harrl
man acquired the Oregon Railway and
Navigation company In 1901 hi. agent, cir
culated literature throughout the Orient
warning merchants and others not to ship
freight over the Graham line, the Oregon
and Oriental, as It had no transportation
facilities on this side of the world. The
circulars were dated at Portland. As a re
sult of these methods the witness said
Graham's line went out of business.
Hard and Fast Contract.
Graham was recalled to the stand for a
continuation of the story he related yes
terday, showing how Harrlman forced his
company, the Oregon and Oriental, out of
business. He stated that the Oregon Rail
way and Navigation company, owned by
Harrlman, routed hla Inward freights and
that he was required by contract to give
the1 Oregon Railway and Navigation com
pany bills of lading over that road and Its
So stringent were the conditions of this
contract, when Graham desired to give some
of his freight to the Chicago, Milwaukee
and St. Paul rood, the official., particu
larly Campbell of the Oregon Railway and
Navigation, would not permit him, but
compelled him to ship over the Chicago and
Northwestern and the Illinois Central.
Attorney Severance, for the oommlsslon,
went carefully Into the terms of this con-
trmrt. drawing attention among other
things to the fact that there was a pro
viso showing careful regard for the In
teratate Commerce commiasion.
