kins Baxter of Nashville, and thOBC of tho
Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy by J. E.
Kelby of Omaha, General Freight Agents
Barham of the Nashville road; C. E. Spens
of the Burlington and Charles T. Cameron
of the Illinois Central. The official ste
nographer of . the hearing was James R.
Wick of Topeka. Kan.
The hearing began at 10 a. rn. with
M. D. Welch, general manager of the
Omaha Cooperage , company, as the
first witnesB. He Said the plant had
been ln operation about seven year, and
was engaged in the manufacture of all
kinds of cooperage, with a capacity of 1,000
or 1,600 barrels dally, and the products of
the concern were marketed mostly among
packers and distillers, with shipment, out
eldo of Omaha to Nebraska City. Bt. Jo
seph, Kansas City and Sioux City. The
principal competing point for the Omaha
conaern ls at Keokuk, Ia. The great bulk
of the material, consisting very largely of
white oak staves. Is received from Arkan
sas. Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky
points. His complaint maintains that his
South Omaha plant ls unjustly discrim
inated against In the matter of freight
rate. In favor of Keokuk from point, on
,he Nashville, Chattanooga A St. Louis
line in Tennessee, whence the largest pro
portion of his stock ls received.
Diverted to Keoknk.
"These products are bought," he said,
"from the originating points in Tennessee
on tho Nashville road to Paducah, Ky.,
from Where thev Are diverted to the I1H-
:l0,8 Central nnd thenco to Keokuk or Bt.
uua. as the case may be.
..Tn9 dlBtance from paginating point, to
Keokuk and South Omaha are practically
tne ame fcut ft dlBCrlmlnat,on ,B made ,
the Urmlna dellverIel! at Keokuk and
Bouth Omaha of from S13 to 15 per car in
favor of Keokuk. The cars are not un-
loaded In transit from Tennessee to South
Omaha, but they are unloaded while In
transit to Keokuk. The result of
this discrimination In favor of Keokuk
against Bouth Omaha effects the prick
of barrel. 2 or 3 cent, each at South
Omaha, all of which la owing to the
excessive freight. As a result, we have
been compelled to buy our material re
cently from Arkansas to a large extent,
Instead of from Tennessee, and this on
account of the freight rates. No stave
material Is produced by the etates of Kan
sas or Illinois, and but a small amount In
Missouri. The world's supply of white oak
for barrels ls obtained from the states of
Kentucky, Tennessee. Arkansas and Missis
sippi." .Mr. Welsh fortified his testimony with
numerous freight schedules, bills of lading
and expense sheets, which were made a
part of the exhibit.,
Testimony Is Prepared.
General Freight Agent Barham of the
Nashville, Chattanooga & Bt. Louis Rail
way company, from Nashville, wa. the
Mcond witness. Mr. Barbara' testimony
wa read from question, and answers al
ready prepared. He said:
"The rate from Hollow Rock, Tenn., to
Bt. Louis was less than the sum of the
locals. There was no through rate from
Hollow Rock to Bouth Omaha and the rate
from that point to Keokuk and South
Omaha so far as the Nashville road was
concerned was the same, but recently rates
had been lowered to both of the nnim.
The through rate. In each instance are le.s
than the sum of the loca rates. St Louis
was used as contributing a a rate making
.xlnt ln the Nashville road tariffs. The
through Joint rates are made on a basis
of Chicago, the lowest combined rate being
given. The Nashville road does not pub
lish a through rate to Bouth Omaha.
Revennea on Keoknk Traffic.
"The revenue derived from the Keokuk
traffic from forest products to the Nash
ville road are the same as derived from
South Omaha, never more nor less. If the
rate were lowered to a discrimination In
favor of South Omaha a. against Keokuk,
it would Involve a complete readjustment of
rates ln all territory tributary to the Nash
ville road. The basing rate to Bt. Iuls
and East Bt. Louis ls precisely the sjime.
The rate, from Hollow Rock to South
Omaha are not unjust nor unfair. The
cpBt of transportation for. short distances
ls relatively more than for longer dis-
j tances. The process of gathering emptl-s
j ls difficult and costly. The rates to South
, Omaha are as low ns can be Justified.
There has been no c om plaint of unf At me ah

territory of the Nashville, Chattanooga &
St. Ixiuls road. There is no discrimination
whatever against South Omaha."
Thinks Rales Reasonable.
General Freight Agent Charles T. Cam
eron of the Illinois Central said:
"I think tne jo-ceni rate rrom i-aducah to
Bouth Omaha Is reasonab.e and Ju.t and
I will favorably compare with other rate.
from competing points by other roads to
I think the 16-cent rate from Paducah to
Omaha and South Omaha. I understand
the rate from East St. Louis to Omaha is
10 cent, which ls the same rate from Cairo
to Chicago and from Evansvllle to Chlcag .
We do not make the rate for the Nashville,
Chattanooga & St. Louis road."
C. E. Spens of the Burlington wa. th
final witness. His testimony was In effect
that the Burlington had a rate of 10 cent
from St. Louis tu South Omaha, as coin
pared with a rate of 5 cents from St. Louis
to Keokuk and that the position of the
Burlington was not difficult to defend. The
distance from St. Louis to Omaha was 458
mile, while that from St. Iouis to Keokuk
was but 172 miles. He said the earnings
per ton per mile from 8t. Louis to Omaha
on the basis of 10 cents were 4.4 mills, as

ENTOMBED MINERS RESCUED

PITTSBL'RG, April 30. After being en
tombed since last Friday noon In Berwlnd
Whlte Coal company mine No. 38, at Foust
well. near hero, the seven miners who wero
shut off from the world by a sudden rusil
of water caused by the breaking of a wail
of an abandor"'! mine, were rescued at 13
o'clock tonight. The men were greatly ex
hausted. Owing to their weakened condition it was
decided not to bring t' em out until after
the mine had been drained. , -
The men were reached "'".-if) o'clock by
Stlney Rodon aiia'jV''res Ream, who mad 1
a dash through' tit ty feet of water-tilled
heading. Earlier in the day John Bolya,
brother of tne of the imprisoned men, and
three comrades, made a futile attempt to
reach the men. They came back half
drowned and reported that portion, of lha
heading were still completely filled with 4
water and that more pumping would havo
to be done before the imprisoned men could
be reached. The efforts at pumping were
then redoubled. At 10 o'clock the wat r
had o far gono down that It was resolved
to make one more attempt to break
through to tho overcast, where lt was be
lieved the unfortunuto men were .till alive.
Stlney Rodcn and Charles Ream volun
teered for . the service. Over an hour
elapsed before either man was heard from
and then Ream came swimming baclt
through the heading, bringing the first
news from the imprisoned seven. The ef
fort hnd nearly exhausted Ream. He re
ported that the seven men were alive and
all In good shuie, but until more pumping,
was done the passage to the place where
they had taken refuge was impassible to
those who could not .wim. Then it wa.
resolved to let them remain where they
are until the heading had been pumped out.
Ream And his comrade carried to the Im
prisoned men simply a flask of brandy and
a little water. He reported that Mike Holy
had, since the breaking of the wall, between
the abandoned working., been In charge
of the movement, of hi. comrade.. Bolya
Is acquainted with every turn of the mine.
When the flood broke out he led hla com
rade to the highest part ln the heading,
where the overcast was situated. I'nder his
direction each man, before fleeing, tz'.iei
his lunch basket. When they arrived at
the overcast every lamp but one wa. ex
tinguished, and one by one the lamp, were
earh burned out until when they were
reached by Rodon and Ream there wa. but
a fluglo light rcmulrinr: and that ln danger
of running low nt any time.
When stock was taken of the available
supply of provisions it was fi und that three
baskets were but half emptlod. This scanty
store of rations was husbaned until Mon
day morning, since when the men had had
nothing to eat. Durimr lhe whole time they
huve gone without water, fearing to drink
tho water from the abandoned workings.
Ream aid that at the place where the
men had n utit refuge there had been a
Bjppiy t ties left for ti.'u y-layipg purpose.
With these Bolya Bud his comrade, had
hulit a platform, uion which they had
soupht refute, and when found there they
were not only lilgh, but dry.
