RAILROAD MEN IN DILEMMA
Fear to ry Claims for Fear of Being

(From Btaff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Feb. 2S.-Speclal.)-"Be-tween
ths sta bill and the tnterstste com
mtrnx law as amended by the act, the rail
roads are In a peculiar position In the mat
ter f the adjustment of claims." said a
railroad official this 'morning. "It la an
exceedingly difficult matter to settle a
claim, whether for an over charge of
freight, for damages to freight ahlpment
or for anything that arises out of the pas
senger service, without subjecting our
selves to a charge of discrimination.
"It has frequently .Jjappened Blnce the
enactment jof Ufa so-called rate law 'that
absolutely just claims, so recognised by the
railroads themselves, have remained un
adjusted because of the fear that the
charge might be made that the anti-rebate
law has been evaded.
"Tne:e W. 'pending in one erf the biggest
railroad offices In this country before Its
claim department, a demand for redress
which the traffic mansger Insists should bo
adjusted Immediately. The claim agent of
t lie railroad, appealefl for advice to the
general counsel, who' leaned back In his
ilialr and quietly puffed his cigar and re
marked: 'Young man, If you pay that
i inltn you with sure go to the penitentiary.'
The claim agent Is between the devil and
the deep sea, and the fact that the United
Slates legal authorities are at present
pioKCLUtlng one of the big packers In Chl
cagu, because It Is alleged that he. Is guilty
or rex-el vrng rebates In the form of claims
has complicated the situation still further
anil tin one need be surprised If the rail
roads In se:f-j,rolectlon decide to settle no
claims whatever until directed to do so by
a court of competent jurisdiction."
Inspection of .arsery Stork.
The committee on agriculture of the
house has reported a bill which provide
for the Inspection of nursery stock. This
was .brought about first by the enormous
iAvues of the gypsy moth and the brown
tail moth, which Insects have, within the
last three yeats. practically defoliated
nearly all the trees of New England. These
Insects were undoubtedly Imported from
Enrol", but - unfortunately -the parasites
whs prey tion them did not emigrate with
ihem. and consequently they have grown
and multiplied, especially in Massachusetts,
until they have become a menace to vege
tation. ' ' ' ,; I
l nt!l recently the ravages of these moths
have been confined to the states in which
thi-y first found lodgement, but lately
mat have been discovered In Ohio and
Virginia, and. especially In New York, and
this accounts for the activity on the part
uf (ho committee on agriculture In the
The damage which threatens orclinrdlsts
unlets some such plan as that proposed by
the .rommlttee on agriculture Is promptly
adopted is shown In a letter received by
l'r. I,. O. Howard nf the Department of
.Xn'fculturv signed by George a. At wood,
i'lef of the bnrenu of horticulture of the
ftsti of New York, in wjhlch Mr. Atwood
s".ysi "We have found to date something
ovept 1.SO0 iichIs of brown-lull moth 1n
shipments from abroad. All Infested stock
so fir comes from France and the most of
It from Anglers."
Clrealar oa Immigration.
Ti.e following letter from the commis
sioner general' of immigration, Daniel J.
Keefe, to Senator Burkett Is self-explaiHt-tory.
It has a bearing upon recent clrru
lai criticising officials at Gills island for
sieged mistreatment of Russian-German
Immigrants, resulting in their rejection on
nrei urtt of being afflicted with the disease
l,i i n tts trachoma, The letter follows:
, The parly who prepared this circular
evidently believes that the passing of those
persons by medical examiners employed by
the steamship companies at foreign ports
should be all-sufficient, but It only need be
pointed out t'lM the Immigration art of
February . 19"7, prescribes that the physi
cal snd mental conditions of aliens shall
be determined by duly desansfed t'nlted
States ptiHr health and marine hnspitnl
surgeons. The assertion tht there Is Its
crimlnstlon sirs Inst one particular class of
arrivals Is hardly worthy rf denial, as you
will realise how improbable auch a condi
tion could be.
The steamship companies ar under
pfialty of IKIO for each alien brought to
this country who Is afflicted with a loith
snnie or dangerous ccntaglous disease that
might have been detected nt the P"rt of
embarkation by a con potent medical ex
amination; that the companies may fall to
carry out their obligation to their pas
sergers by adopting proper meosures to
avoid the hardship of a fruitless voyage is
something that this government cannot
control, except by the Imposition of fines
of the character mentioned, and there has
bec-n no leniency shown with respect to en
forcing this feiture of the law. On the
other hand, large numbers of arriving
aliens who have been found to be diseased
were allowed hospital treatment at the ex
pense of thetr relatives or of the govern
ment to avoid the peculiar hardship which
Is always Involved In separating the mem
bers of a family. y
The suggestion that medical officers em
ployed by this government be stationed at
the various foreign porhs of embarkation Is
Impracticable, as this proposition was ex
haustively considered some time ago and It
was ascertained through the Department
of State that several of the foreign govern
ments objected to the assignment of Ameri
can medical officers at their ports for the
purpose of examining aliens about to em
bark for the I'nited States. Furthermore,
such examination would not satisfy the re
quirements of section 17 of the Immigration
act. which prescribes a medical examina
tion at the port of entry and which would
undoubtedly lead to the reject Ion -of many
aliens for physical causes which could not
be detected at the time of embarkation,
but would, nevertheless, bring such aliens
within one or more of the classes speci
fically excluded by the statute. The hard
ships Incident to deportation would there
fore only be partially mitigated by the
adoption of the plan suggested.
In conclusion, I desire to invite your
attention to the fact that the circular letter
referred to carefully refrain from men
tinning in any specific case as a basis for
the allegations therein contained, and If
you would like to examine the papers re
lating to the cases In which Dr. V. C.
Young of Wichita Falls. Tex., was inter
ested, the flics are open to your Inspection,
and 1 invite vou to examine them, feeling
certain that, after doing ao, you will concur
In the conclusion that Dr. Young has been
accorded more consideration than the meth
ods which hava been adopted by him really

It was a happy thought that prompt
cd Miss Ethel Roche of 227 Florida
Ave., Jacksonville, Fla., to ask her drug"
gist's opinion when looking for some
thing to cure her cold." A druggist
knows the value of a medicine by the
popularity it enjoys and the repeated
calls he has for it, and his prompt
advice to her was to use Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. ,
Sister Was Also Cured

about three years ago and was so
hoarse she could hardlv sneak. Sha
says: "The druggist told me to try
Chamberlain s t-ougn Kemedy. 1 did
