JUDGES SUSPESP CUT ORDER

CHICAGO SWITCH CHARGES LOW
nednrtlnn of Terminal Fee for Tronic
portntlon of Cara to Stork
Tarda Held to Be t n
rraaonable. ST. PAITI., Minn., J ine 30.-Judges 8in
born. Ho k and Ad.ims In the Unlt.d States
circuit court today tendered an interlocu
tory decree whereby they temporarily sua
pend and enjoin the enforcement of the
order of the Interstate Commerce comml.i
bi in which reiduced the charge of certain
lallroada for the transfer of live stock from
their terminus in Chicago t the I'nion
Stoik yards from $J to $1 per car. Judge
Adams del vered the opinion of the couit.
The court held:
"The termlr.-il charge for the transporta-
tlon of these cars from the termini or me
railroads to the stock yards over the tracks
of the Union Stock Yard company wa
required by the acts of conaress to be
separately scheduled by the railroad com
panies snd they complied with those acts
and scheduled this charge separately.
"This terminal charge of per ear for
transferring the cars over the tracks of the
Union Stock Yards company to the stock
yards and returning the same to complain
ants' roads was a reasonable charge. A
reduction of It to $1 per car made it un
reasonably low. The Interstate Com
merce commission made this charge un
reasonably low because the rates of the
railroad companies on their own road and
the terminal charge of 2 were, in their
opinion, unreasonably high. This was an
error of law. Under the acts of congress,
which requires segregation of the question
of the Justice and reasonableness of each
segregated rate must be determined by it
self. Jurisdiction of Courts.
"Under the acts of congress the federal
courts have Jurisdiction to set aside or
suspend an order of the Interstate Com
merce commission which results from mis
conception and misapplication of the law
to conceded or undisputed facts. It li not
lndisiensable to the correction by the fed
eral court of an error of law Into which
the commission has fallen, whereby a
specific rate Is made unreasonably low,
that the aggrieved party should prove tnat
the effect of this unreasonably low rate
will make Its entire business unproi Itahle.
It Is enough that the reduced rate is unjust
and unreasonable.
"The order of the Interstate Commerce
commission, whereby the charge for the
transfer of live stock from the termini of
the railroad companies In Chicago over the
tracks of the Union Stock Y'ards company
to the slock yards from ti per car to tl
per car must be suspended and Its enforce
ment enjoinpd until the final direction of
the further order of the court."
Parties to Action.
The action was brought in the United
States circuit court here by Receivers
Stickney and Smith of the Chicago Great
Western and the Chicago, Milwaukee &
t. Paul, Cnlcago Ac Alton, Rock Island and
Santa Fe companies were parties to the
suit. Receivers Stlckney and Smith reside
here and the Hepburn and Sherman anti
trust laws, under which the action was
brought leave It optional to bring cases
In any district where one of the complaln
r.nts reside.
Immediately after the action was begun
United States Attorney General Bonaparte
caused to be filed a certificate requiting the
court to speed the-case and requiring at
least three circuit Judges to hear and try
It. The case was argued May 28 last.

Mas I.ranlly Flee led
to Office.
NEW YORK, June 30. Mayor Gcorse 11.
MeClellan's title to the office of mayor of
New York City was made clear by the de
cision of Justice Lambert In the supreme
court today, when he ordered a Jury "to
render a verdict that McClellan was duly
elected mayor In 1!06. W. R. Hearst has
been contesting the mayor's right to the
office practically ever since the election,
and as a result of his charges of fraud In
the original count of ballots, the legisla
ture passed a law enabling a recount.
Attorney General W. S. Jackson then In
stituted quo warranto proceedings on be
half of the people. In which both Mr.
Hearst and Mayor McClellan were named
as defendants.
Hearst Falls to Prove Changes.
The recount left Mayor McClellan with
a plurality of 2.9C.5, whereupon Clarern-e
J. Shearn, representing Mr. Jackson, al
leged that the ballot boxes had been
stuffed and requested the court to throw
out the entire vote of .112 election dis
tricts In which he charged that the bal
lots found In the boxes exceeded the num
ber of registered voters. This, however,
was based on ani Incorrect list of voters,
and when the correct list was produced
today Mr. Shearn said that the registra
tion was greater than the poll In every
district disputed. Justice Lambert declined
to throw out the contested districts. Mr.
Shearn then charged that the Inspectors
had registered an excessive number of
Mimes, but said he could not prove re
peating. The Justice then declared that the orig
inal count was quite as complete as the one
made In court and that the evidence
showed no fraud so far as the election In
spectors were concerned. He said that If
legal voters could bo disfranchised so
readily as had been attempted in this case.
this form of government would not en

tude In regard to the recount, he states
that he has been forced to pay out J4fl,(K)

DENVER. Colo., June 30. Although iuiv
didates for the nomination for vice presi
dent on the democratic ticket are numer
ous, and despite the fact that tlielr num
ber is likely to be largely increased before
a choice la actually made, It Is the general
opinion among such leaders of the party
who are now here that If George Gray of
Delaware will declare his willingness to
accept the second place on the ticket he
can have It. Joslah Marvel of Wilmington,
Del., the manager of the Gray presidential
campaign, who arrived In Denver tonight,
will not, however, give his consent. He
Insists that the Delaware man Is a candi
date for first place, and when it Is settled
that he cannot have first place It will be
ample time to place him In running for
the secondary position, provided he cares to
take it. Mr. Marvel denies, however, that
Judge Gray will he satisfied with anything
less than the head of the ticket.
It is well known that Mr. Bryan would
be pleased to have Judge Gray for the vice
presidential candidate, and the only thing
that prevents the latter from becoming a
leading candidate for that position Is the
simple but all-powerful fact thst he will
not declare himself to be a candidate
ut all.
Gray Headquarters Opened.
The Gray presidential boom was formally
launched today and headquarters were
opened In the Savoy hotel. They were ar
ranged some hours in advance of the ar
rival of Mr. Marvel, and during the early
part of the afternoon a corps of expert
bill stickers were going about the hotels
putting up lithographs of the Delaware can
didate. No other pictures have been placed
as yet, and the Gray men secured the most
prominent places In the lobbies of all of
the leading hotels. The headquarters wer
thrown open after the arrival of Manager
Marvel, but because of the 1st hour at
which he put In an appearance the Gray
boom was not put Into active operation.
By tomorrow, however. It Is expected to be
In full swing.
The Johnson headquarters will not be
opened for several days and the date on
which the Bryan banners will be thrown
out has not yet been determined, but it will
be on Saturday or Sunday, sfter th arrival
of the Nebraska delegation.
Flmht on Injunction Plank. e
It Is certain that there will be a 8tjJn
UKlll III 111." H-IIMO,.., v
possibly on the floor of the conv. t)v,
itsflf. over the anti-lr.Junctlon plank. , hp
has come Indirectly from Lincoln hsWJU(
Bryan Is In favor of a plank of a om0
radical nature, and It Is certain that
men as Roger Sullivan, national commlt.t'
man from Illinois, and Chairman Tag,g
of the national committee are strongly, n
pns.ed to It. Sullivan gave out yesterds.,,
fta'ement In which h favorfd "equal r"gh
before the law" and used other expressions
of a similar character which were con
strued to mean that he was opposed to a
strong antl-irjunctlon plank. Mr. Sullivan
denies that he Intended to convey the lm-
rresslon that he planned to fight the anti-
Injunction plank, but It Is generally be
lieved that he is against extreme language
in this part of the resolutions. It Is well
known that between Mr. Brjan and Mr.
Sullivan and other Influential members of
the Illinois delegation no particular amount
of love Is lost, and reports have been circu
lated that if an anti-injunction plank Is
adopted more radical In Its character than
the Illinois people feel that they can ap
prove that the state, when It comes to
balloting for president, will bretk away
from Its Bryan Instructions.
Sullivan denied this emphatically today.
He said:
"We were told to stick for Bryan, and
we are going to stick I do not believe that
any platform fight can change our present
program. Illinois has no Idea of breaking
away from its Instructions."
Conservatives In Evldeaoa.
The forces opposed to a radical labor
plank were strengthened today by the
arrival of Charles G. Helfner of Washing
ton state, who has the proxy of John V.
Terry, the national committeeman from
that state. Mr. Helfner announced em
phatically that the Pacific coast, and par
ticularly the state of Washington, waa
opposed to the adoption of such a plank
as was presented at Chicago by Samuel
Gompers and other officials of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor. "The adoption
by our party of such a plank would be a
transparent sop to unlor. labor which
would be repugnant to voters in all sec
tions of the country. It would be 4 prom
ise that no law-making body would be
willing to fulfill. It could not help but
lr.Jure the democratic party at th polls."
Mr. Helfner believed that the vice presi
dency will go tu the east, but he was not
ready to say how his delegation will vote.
The coming of Mr. Helfner with his
statement of the sentiment of the Paciflu
coast against the proposed antl-lnjuncllon
plar.k. and the announcement In the east
that Martin W. Littleton of Nw York
will come here to make a fight against
the Insertion of sui h a plank In th plat
form, easily makes this question the most
important under discussion. New England
Is sail to he opposed to the plank, and
New Jersey and Pennsylvania also are
accredited with pronounced antagonism to
such a resolution, if the New Yoik dele-
gallon and the Pacific coast delegations
should take a determined starxl against It,
i the fight would assume formidable pro-
I portions. It Is not believed here that the
upp union of Sullivan of Illinois snd Tag
gart of In i. ana means that the entire
j delegat i.'iia from tiiese states would op
pose .Mr. Hi. .ana wlsocs. Most of the
Icential ui.d !;. n and southern statej.
