(From n Staff Correspondent.)
DE3 MOHSES, May 1. (Special.) A
saving of $40,000 a year to the traveling pub
lic Is contemplated In a suit before the
Interstate Commerce commission, the argu
ment in which ha Just been filed by At
torney General Byere. It Is the finish of
th rase brought against the owners of
th. railroad bridge at Dubuque to compel
abandonment of the long-time bridge
arbitrary of 2S cents for every passenger
carried across the bridge.
"The Illinois Central Railway company,"
aay the attorney general, "haa Invested in
thl bridge J-'.T71,;i44.H and haa exacted from
th shipping and traveling public In return
18,000.000. It would seem upon such a show
ing a thia that even a railroad company
would be willing from now to make this
what haa been termed In the record a 'free
Lrtdge.' Without extending the argument
further, we repeat that under the clrcuin
tancea disclosed In this case neither of the
three defendant companies ought to be per
mitted to charge a cent for biidgo toll over
the bridge In question."
The two other companies referred to are
the Great Wester, and the nurlington. The
evidence submitted to the Interstate Com
merce commission shows that the Illinois
Central receives sbout tl9u,Q0O a year now
for the privilege of freight and passenger
aervtce over the bridge. About IIO.OoO of
this Is supposed to be for passengers at 2j
cent a trip.
Attorney General Byers made some to
markable disclosures in the hearing on the
case bef tie Commissioner Clark. He found
that the Illinois Central In fact ownsMhe
bridge through ownership of a company
which owns the stock of the bridge com
pany, and that Captain Merry, the agent
company had filed an Information aasinst "' cemrai. i w-crrn.) oi uic
which prevailed in tins section of the coun
try, Charles Adams, a negro, built a fir
in an empty freight car In the Burlington
yards earl yeaterday, then curled himself
up alongside of It and calmly went to aleep.
While Adams was slumbering the fire
burned a hole through the bottom of the
car. One of the yardmen noticed the smoke
Issuing from beneath the car and, suppos
ing that there were several tramps inside,
put the bolt on the door and then tele
phoned for th police.
Ry the time Offh crs O Neil and larry
reached the yarda Adams was nearly suf
focated by the smoke from the fire he had
started. When- the door wa opened the
negro wa found with hi coat wrapped
around lit head In an effort to keep tlie
smoke out of his, mouth and eyes. Ho wss
taken direct before Judge Snder In police
court and. after officials of the railroad
diately upon convening and accepting the
resignation fit C. W. Phillip a secretary,
passed a resolution highly eulogistic of
the retiring secretary and complimenting
him on the manner In which the affairs
of the board had been conducted fur the
thirteen years he had beeii in charge. The
new board found tiiat the old board had
kept the accounts In perfect condition, had
adopted the best system, and there had
never been a leak in th board. C. W.
sen of Red Oak today took charge of the
office a secretary.

A great deal of Interest la taken here In

resident of this city. He was a brother

later was general manager of th Denver

Bribery ia City Affairs.
An accusation of bribery In connection
with the preliminaries for th. building of
a new city hall was made In the city
commission' today. The commission has
been in a quarrel as to who should select
the architect and aa tu which architect to
name for the building and aa superintend
ent of const lucll'jr.. It la now asserted
that Alderman Ha mere called one archi

with him about an alleged deal whereby
the architect had placed S2,5iO in the hxndn
of a third party to be used in case the
architect should g-el the appointment.
