Mr. Harrlman would not ey Juet what
new undertakings he proposed. "But,"
said he, "It Is In my mind to open up new
tcrr.tory and to Tiulld new tributary line.

Thli attitude b emphasised throughout
hlii talk on railroad matters, leaving the
Infucnre that h contemplated Improv

this connection the action of the directors
of th L'nlon l'v.-lflc and Southern Pacltlo
ruliroadk today 1 significant. Both met,
but dclaid only the regular dividend.
Touching on tile railroads In Mexico, Mr.
Harrlman said he had no Immediate Im
provement in mind at any rate not until
titw equipment wa needed. At thl point
hi attention wa directed to a recent
magazine article which eald there waa a
feeling In the west against him because of
. having short haul rates.
"It Is alleged that you exact more to
haul from New York to Salt Lake City
than from New York to Ban Francisco,"
'1 don't want to go Into rates at this
time," was the brief reply. "My method
Is to serve the public arid have them get
' what they pay for.' It Is like ouylng a hew
suit of clothes you want to get the most
for your money. The publlo gets Us
money's worth. I give them the best equip
ment, the best track and regular time."

and the Interview was'at an end. Mrs. Har

Mary and Carol Harrlman, daughters, and
Iioland, Son,' accompanied him to and re
turned with him tuda? from Europe.
Many members of the fa-took sxohange
were oh board th Kaiser and they kept a
watchful eye on Mr. Harrlman sonatantly
during the trip. Soma of the passengers
who had made the trip over with him said
.that he seemed somewhat stronger than

RISE TO FOIL KIDNAPERS
Chauffeurs Made Mrs. Barclay Be
lieve Auto Had Broken Down.
CASE BEFORE COITBT WEDNESDAY
Dismissal of Writs of Habeas Cor
pt Means Connie Most Oo Book
t Kansas to Stand
KANBA8 CITY,' Mo., Aug. M.-All th
principals In the kidnaping of s-year-old
MarlanBleakley. the "Incubator baby,"
who wa stolen from her home In Topeka
Saturday, awaited today th decision of
Judre E. E. Portarfleld. before whom th
hearing on writs of habeas corpus to pre
vent th return of th child to Its mother,
Mrs. J. J. Blrakley, andth prisoner to
Topeka. will b heard tomorrow.
Should Judge Porterfleld dismiss th
writs, nothing but a recall of ths requisi
tion paper granted by the governor of
Missouri can prevent th taking of Mrs.
James O. Barclay of Buffalo, N. T., and
J. N. Oentry of Kansas City to Topeka to
James Q. Barclay, n automobile doaler
of Buffalo, husband of Mrs. Barclay, Is on
his way to Kansas City to assist his wife.
"Roxey" Ross and Will Buoy, two boyish
looking chauffeurs, employed by a local
automobile livery company, and who car
ried th kidnaping party from Topeka to
Valley Falls, where th machine broke
down, today told Inspector of Petectlves
B',d Boyle the entire story of their engage
ment for the trip.
"Mrs. Barclay, Mr. Oentry alld Mother
man engaged the car at Kansas City early
Saturday morning," said Ross today. "We
drove them to Topeka. , They told us to
stop at the old hospital, near the out
skirts of town. W were there hardly an
hour when a horse and buggy, containing
Oentry, Mr. Barclay and a child, dashed
up. Gentry pushed Mrs. Barclay Into the
machine and, Jumping In himself, ordered
us to drive north as fast as possible. I
began to suspect aomethlng.
"Between Valley Falls and Atohlson the
car broke down. We got out and began
tinkering with It. I said to Bucy, 'Never
find a piece of this machine.' W un
screwed a number of parts and scattered
them In the dust. When the car wouldn't
run any more Oentry got out and left uf.
Th party had scarcely been gone ten
minutes when a ear loaded with Topeka
people, In search of -the kidnapers, came
along. But they were too late. Wb went
to a farm house and had dinner and then
cam back to Kansas City."
The police are looking for a second man
who accompanied Oentry and Mrs. Bar
clay from Kansas City to Topeka. Hs Is
known and Inspeotor Boyle believes he will
be captured by night.
Jlro. Barclay Tells of Plot.
Today for th first time slnoe her arrest.
Mrs. Barclay made, a statement. She had,
she said, gone to Topeka five weeks ago
to see the baby that she later kidnaped.
She talked with her whil she played In
the street. "Right then," continued Mrs.
Barclay, "waa when the kidnaping plot wa
evolved and with th making of that plot
I determined that nothing mould stop ms.
"I want back to New York and mad my
plans." ' ,
After detailing the history of th entire
esse and telling the story of the actual
kidnaping, as previously related In the pa
pers, .Mis. Barclay continued:
"I have fought for Marian and. will con
tinue , to. fight as .long as there Is blood
in my. ;veln;, as loDg as there la an atom
of trenth to- carry me, through . th Strug-
"I love her. betler ' than my. life; better
than .anything else on earth.. And I'll have
her. I know that I will bs successful, for
I am right."
- .. Hadley Reopen Cos.
Late tonight Mr. Barclay was notified
that Oovernor Hadley had granted a re
hearing on the requisition secured by the
Kansas police. The matter was set for
hearing at Jefferson City next Friday
morning. If the governor decides to re
call the requisition, Mrs. Barclay and Mr.
Gentry, who helped her bring the child
to Missouri, will go free. Whatever trans
action the . governor may take,, however,
the contest for the child In th Missouri
court will go on.
RIYER RATE CASE

should congress deslr t6 leave It In the
hand of unbridled corporations T
"It congress cannot constitutionally
make a general declaration that th rates
shall be reasonable, ' Judge Baker con
tinues, "and not unjustly discriminatory,
and then trust an executive body to hear
evidence, th power of congress over rate
would be worthless, for It would b ut
terly Impracticable for congress Itself to
mak enactments to cover th specific
- The dissenting Judge state that com
plaint against th commission' orders are
mad on two groundsthat th rates are
confiscatory and that they are discrimin
ating. Th former he dismiss with a
brief comparison of rates. As to discrim
ination he states that If this be th case
th railroads have no complaint, but rather
Th parties which petitioned for th In
junction were the Chicago, nock Island A
Paclflo Railroad company, th Chicago,
Burlington & Qulncy Railroad company,
th Chicago, Milwaukee A St.- Paul Rail
way company, th Chicago A Northwest
ern Railroad company and th receivers of
th Chicago Great Western Railroad com
pany, t al. Th Illinois - Central, th
Santa Fa, th Alton, th Missouri Pacific
and ths Frisco Railroad companies and a
number of Important shipping lnterssts in
tervened as co-complalnants.
"Th question raised," said Judge Gross
cup In rendering his opinion, "in Its larger
aspect, is not so much a question of be
tween th shippers and the railroads as
beiwu Ihv uumiiieit4l and manufactur
ing Interest of Denver and of the territory
east of th Mississippi river on the one
side, and th commercial and manufactur
ing Interests of the Mississippi river cities
on the other."
Besides granting th permanent Injunc
tion I In th Missouri river rate case, the
court also granted a preliminary Injunc
tion In th Denver rata case which Is based
on similar principles aa th Missouri river
Flsht on Lower Rates.
Th railroads In th Missouri river rat
case sought to have the Interstate Com
meres commission enjoined permanently
from enforcing at. order of th commission
uiad June 21, IVU, relating to Joint rates
from th Atlantic seaboard to Missouri
rtver cities. This order sought to create
a system of through rates from th At
lantlo seaboard to the Missouri river that
were a reduction from the sums of the
local ratta. This, according to western
roads,- threw the burden upon them.
The Joint rate now In foroe from th At
lantic seaboard to th Missouri river on
.ilrst-claas lustier la H.17 par 1UQ pounds.
The reduced rate proposed fey th commis
sion waa 11. M. Th through rat now In
fore on th sam matter from th Atlantl
seiboard to th Mississippi river IS (7 cents,
which plus the through rat from ths Mis
sissippi rlvr to th Missouri river eonts)
makes th same total of $1.T per 100 pounds
as th Joint rat from the Atlantlo seaboard
to the Missouri river.
The commission's defeated purpose would
have allowed the Atlantic seaboard to de
liver goods to' Missouri river cities on a
Joint rat S cents lees than could have been
don If the shipments were Sent first to
th Mississippi liver and then re-sent to the
Coart Limits fonssntealon'a Power.
Today's decision, if sustained, will, it Is
said, limit th power of th interstate Cora-
mere j commission to.th settlement of ca.j
of rat discrimination.
In th present case the railroads maintain
that th prlnolple laid down by th inter
state Commerce commission would be pro
per If hppllsd to on road, but that Its
application to mora than on would work
a hardship because of th expens of oper
ation of terminals by eaoh road.
Th railroads also contended that the
reductions ordered by the commission
meant discrimination against western man
ufacturers and merchant. In favor of th
Atlantlo seaboard shippers.
Speaking of th power of th commission
th opinion says:
"W ar not prepared id ur that th
commission has th power1, to enter upon
a plan looking toward a system of rates
whsr th rate, 'for lonrer and shorter
hauls, will taper downward aocording to
distance, providing such tapering In both
comprehensively and ' Symmetrically ap
pliedapplied with a design of carrying
out what may be th economic fact that,
on th whole, It la worth something less
per mil to carry freight long distances
than short distances.
"But It does not follow that power of
that character Includes power, by the us
of differentials, to artificially divide th
country Into trade nones, tributary to glvon
trad and manufacturing canter, the com
mission, in such cases, having as a result.
to pr-determln what th trad and man
ufacturing centers shall be; for suoh power,
vaster than any on body of men baa
heretofore exercised, though wisely ex
erted In specific instance would be putting
In th hands of th commission ths gen
eral power of life and death over every
trade and manufacturing center In the
Tn opinion holds that th commission
In attempting to enforce Its order sought
to exercls this collosal power.
Jnstle of Rat Not Considered.
The opinion states that much testimony
was heard from various sections of the
country to show th affect th proposed
new rat would have.
"But in the case here," Judge Orosscup
Continued, "th qeustlon Involved Is not a
question of fact, but a qeustlon of power
th question is not whether, by the appli
cation of correct principles, a given rat
ha been decided by. the commission to
be unreasonable, but whether th prin
ciples applied are themselves within the
power uf the commission; for congress did
not intend to confer upon th commission
power to do by Indirection what It oould
not directly do did not Intend to Include
within th word 'reasonably' every power
over the trade and manufacturing country
that th commission should determine It
wa reasonable that It' (th commission)
should possess.,: .
"Again It Is urged that though th ef
fect of the order Itj ,th . Missouri rtver
rate case is to discriminate tn favor of the
Atlantic seaboard and the Missouri river
cities against 'th central Irafflo territory,
and in, th Denver ca ip favor of Denver
and th .eastern -MlsptoMppI river-country
against the Missouri river cities, th dis
crimination is not "undue" with th mean
ing of th . Interstate commerce act, and
that therefore th court have no power
to enjoin. The. difficulty with thl argu
ment Is that It drawi no . distinction be
tween th power that th commission Is
actually given and a power that
the commission I usurping."
Judge Orosscup' opinion concludes;
"It must b understood, however, that
these two orders of the oom mission ar
enjoined solely because, In our Judgment,
they lay upon the commerce and manufao-i
turlng of the localities affected an arti
ficial hand that congress never Intended
should be put forth and therefore are out
side th power conferred upon the com
mission by congress, for with the question
of a reduction In rate or a readjustment
of rates, from which such artificial results
have been eliminated, w are not now

Th commission held a meeting, granted

Owing to the high wind there would

field, but a majority of them were unable
to battle against th wind.
Young nunau-Varilla, however, with his
machine plunging like a ship In a stormy
sea, managed to navigate tbe turbulent
air currents for one round. Then Paul
ham, who already had won a reputation
for courage and endurance, began his
thrilling flight. He made the first two
rounds at an altitude of 2ffl feet, but as

Horror and Admiration.
, The spectators gaxed aloft In admiration

the biplane struck what seemed a danger

achievement has mad him th unrivalled

Paulham had nothing to gain by th risks

Th speaker gave a review of the enact
ment of congress, and th various states,
aqd said: "We find In our legislation some
enactments that ar crude, auperfluoua
and the misdirected, and some that may
wear the mask of false pretense, but In ths
main It Is well Intended and measurably
efficient of Its purpose. The striving
manifested Is for a purer publlo life, a
more perfect administration of Justice, a
kindlier dealing with the unfortunate and
the erring, a more general eduoatlon of the
people, the protection of every man In the
earnings of his labor, the betterment of
material conditions, the conservation -of
health, the promotion of morals and mote
equal opportunities for all In the struggle
of life. In an effort of this kind, we may
expect some mistakes and can well afford
to bear with them."

Jones, food commissioner of Illinois.
Address of th Secretary.
In hi address Secretary Wilson said:
From President Emery' report you
might Infer we have don nothing down
In Washington. We are endeavoring to
operat th law with as little friction as
possible, showing leniency where honest
mistakes are made. We have Instituted
many criminal prosecutions and seised a
great quantity of Impure stuffs. We have
Investigated th milk supply of Chicago,
Kansas City, St. Louis and Cincinnati;
hare denied entry Into this country of im
ported foods found to be Impure and all
the time we are devising means of mak
ing the Ian more perfeot. We hope to
have our department co-operate with the
various state departments. I am convinced
that It will be only a short time before
the adulteration of foods In this country
shall cess altogether."
The delegates from many states prom
ised on-oners t Ion. It Is expected the ben
oat of soda question will com up again
