that Detective James McParland has been
guilty of an attempt to manufacture testi

details of the charge befort the court and
Alva A. Swain, a newspaper correspon
lint, who represents the Pueblo Chieftain
It Denver, was called to the stand and
questioned a to a conversation ho had
with Detective McParland In Denver last
fall. Senator Borah for the state ob
cted to the conversation on the ground
hat no foundation had been laid for It.
Clare.nce Darrow, for the defense, who
sros examining Swain, explained that the
testimony was offered for the purpose of
showing that thore, existed a conspiracy
between the Nine Owners and the Pinker
tons to secure a conviction and execution
of the prisoner. "McParland approached
'.his witness In an attempt to manufacture
testimony," he declared, "and I believe
so have a right to show It."
Judge Wood said there was nothing In
. the evidence that furnished a proper foun
dation for the Introduction of such testi
mony and sustained the state's objection.
The defense took an exception and said
they would later make another attempt
to secure the admission of Swain's testi
mony. Counsel for th defense are evi
dently counting on reaching the matter
through McParland himself, but It is. quiet
probaMe that the state will not call Mc
Parland as a witness,

Commissioner of Labor Says His Lips
KONENZAMP TALKS OF STRIKE
llopefal of Reaching; Settlement After
Conference with the Telesrraph
Superintendents at San
Labor Commissioner Nelll, enroute from
Washington to San Francisco to lend his
influence In the settlement Of the tele
grapher's strike at San Francisco, which
has bean going on for some time, arrived
on the Milwaukee Tuesday afternoon and
It ft immediately afterwards on the Union
Pacific. On the train was the executive
committee of the telegrapher's union, con
sisting of 8. J. Konenkamp of New York,
deputy president of the order of telegraph
ers; Mr. J. Rvldy of Boston and J. M.
Sullivan of New York.
Vice President Konenkamp, who acted as
spokesman of the committee, said, "We are
going to San Francisco with the labor
commissioner to meet President Small of
the telegraphers' union, it Is our under
standing that the district superintendents
of - both the Western Union and Postal
Telegraph companies are authorized to
meet Commissioner Nelll and the execu
tive committee of the Commercial Tele
graphers' union. What the result will be
of course we are unable to state. We hope
to be able to make a settlement of the
San Francisco strike, satisfactory to all
parties concerned. Commissioner Neill's
dealings with the union thus far have been
entirely satisfactory to the members of
the executive committee, and he has taken
a neutral position throughout the contro
versy, but we have no reason to complain."
When asked If he thought the strike
would spread in case a settlement was not
reached at San Francisco, he said: "That
is a matter I am not prepared to discuss
ut this time. There Is general unrest
among the telegraphers of all cities we
havo visited, particularity so In Chicago,
where tho union Is better organized than
In any other large city in the country.
At a meeting held last Sunday we had a
hard time stopping them from voting to
strike at that time."
The committee was mot at the station
by representatives of the local unlou.
Commissioner Neill said his lips wore
sealed on the present situation, as he did
not consider it good policy to discuss the
real conditions, which he said he thought
could be fixed up as soon as an arbitra
tion was had. He said that most diffi
culties would not go as far as they ordin
arily do if the contestants would stop a
moment' and consider the rights of others
or would meet and calmly talk over their

DECISION IN GRAIN CASE
Interstate ronmerre roramlaaloa
Rales on One Complaint of
Kanaaa Milliner Company. '
WASHINGTON. July 9.-The interstate
Commerce Commission today, In an opinion
by Commissioner Prouty. announced Its
decision In the case of the Howard Mills
company against the Missouri raclflo Rail-
way comtianv and other carriers. The com- i
plalnant alleged that the defendant carriers
unduly discriminated against Kansas mill
ers In favor of California millers by ex
acting rates for the transportation of flour,
which was 10 cents greater per 100 pounds
than tho rates contemporaneously exacted
for transportation of wheat from Wichita
and other shipping points In Kansas to '
points In California known as "Pacific I
coast terminals." and also bv exacting I
rates for the transportation of flour, which
were 35 per cent per 100 pounds greater
than the rates contemporaneously exacted
by them for, tho transportation of wheat
from the said shipping polns to Phoenix,
Aril. The commission decided that the
flour rates between the shipping and des
tination points should not exceed the wheat
rates between such points by more than
7 cents per ino pounds.
The commission says that there Is no
Inflexible requirement that rates upon grain
and tho products of grain should be under
all circumstances the same, but that car
riers may. In Just regard for their own
Interests or to meet special conditions, vary
those rates within narrow limits, When,
however, the relation has been established
business developed and money expended
upon the strength of It, then the carrier
cannot. In the absence or some sunicieni
reason, change that relation, nor would
the commission direct such a change.

OAKLAND, Cnl., July 9. Secretary of
War Metcalf deprecates the warlike aspect
that has been given tho order for the
cruise of the great battleship squadron from
the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. The
secretary said la.sl night that the proposed
movement was that of a practice cruise
i "d that the fleet would not be kept In the
I Pacific permanently. He declared that the
"sin vi nme luti ine neet would remain
on the western side of the continent had
not been decided.
With considerable, emphasis the secre
tary voiced his opinion that th warllk
interpretation that had been made In con
nection 'with the fleet's movement wa not
Justified by the facts. In fact, the widely
published reports suggesting hostile pre
parations seem to bo a source of Irritation
for the head of the navy. He said:
The lloet which was n.ovcd from tho
Atlantic to the Pat lllc this winter is coin
ing to this side merely on a practice
cruise. The fleet will consist of sixteen or
more vessels, not more tnan twenty and Its
stay on tills side will not be permanent
Of course, the Meet will not come nere,
turn around and go right back again Ho
long it will remain In thu Pactnc will bs
determined ut th proper time.
There la no sound reaNon for excuse, for
all this talk hy the public, and through th
I ,,Hso by a waiMku naval display. 1 do not
pre or nn attempt to oventw the Japa-
believe thut the newspaper are instilled
or right In so construing mid coloring th
cruise of the warships to the Paclllc.
Every year the Atlantic fleet l.ai been
sent on a cruise. Last year It was aent to
Ouantanamo. This year it will go to the
Pacific. The long cruise Mill give the men
and the vessels a thorough tost and improve
tho efficiency of both.
