A hew clement ha been Injected Into th
hearing before Special Examiner George N.
Brown of the Interstate Commerce com
mission bjr the National Association of
Creamery Rutter Maker as Intervenor, In
which It auk that the rates now prevail
ing; east of Chicago be not disturbed,
contrary to the petition of the traffic bu
reau of the Omaha Commercial club, ask
ing; a lower through and car lot rata from
Omaha to the Atlantic seaboard. .
S. B. Shilling of Chicago. eretary of
the National ' Association ' of Creamery
Buttermakers was tba first witness In be
half of the lntervenors. He held that It
the rate asked la given the centralists or
big creameries or carlot shippers, the
mailer shippers wfll be driven out of bust
nena, and further, If the present rates are
disturbed It will seriously disturb the busi
ness of the butter and egg shippers. .He
maintained that If the carlot rata waa re
duced then the less-than-car-rate should ba
correspondingly reduced and unless this
waa dona his association would antagonise
the proposed reduction of the carlot and
H. R. Wright, state dairy commissioner
of Iow'a. sided with (ha Interveners and
held that the bulk of the butter going to
the eastern markets waa mad by the
small buttermakers and that a reduction
of the prevailing rates would ba a detri
ment to the smaller creameries and he was
prepared to object to the proposed rate
' reduction unless it also applied to the
smaller shippers. The large centralizing
stations or plants, he held, had greatly ex
panded under the present rates, and he
contended there' was no good reason for a
reduction of ' these rates, aVid under the
prevailing rates the big oentrallsers had
waxed aud grown ai. Ha livid, fuiluwi,
that the present rates and railroad service
wag satisfactory to the smaller shippers
and he hoped to see It continue that way.
President J. J. Farrcl of Carver, Minn.,
of the National Creamery and Buttermilk
rs association, also opposed the proposed
reduotlon of the through and carlot rata,
a It meant but another step In centralisa
tion. ' ' '
E. J. McVann was recalled 'for a brief
cross-examination by J. E.Kelby of the
He admitted that the packera, member
of the Commercial club, protested verbally
against the 'use of the name of the Com
mercial club In a auit like this one, which
might reflect upon them.' The packera had
not been asked, except In a joking way,
to Join In this complaint, but they were
not formally asked to Join In It He did
'not know Why they did not join in the
complaint, but ' it wu evidently because
they had not been asked. -
With the conclusion of the cross-examlna.
tlon of Mr. McVann, the complainants
' rested their case' '' v- '
The first witness for the defense was
D. A. Dawson of Chicago, " superintendent
of the Star Union Line".'' His testimony was
'in effect that no complaint had been filed
' to his knowledge regarding the carload
'rate from Chicago to eastern points. Ha
explained at some length the ' relation of
the carload and less than carload meth
ods of transportation, showing that the
less than carload rates were generally more
profitable to the transportation' companies,
because the tonnage per car was gseater,
a a result - of the combination of ship
ments, which in the aggregate exceeded
the carlot minimum of 20,009 pounds from
4,009 to 6,006. ,-..! -
R, C. Ford of Chicago, trafflo manager
of the Illinois Central, testified along simi
tar lines, particularly as relating to In
tervening shipments over the Illinois line
between Omaha and Chicago and other
western and north western - point.
The hearing will be concluded this after
noon, when the case will be taken under
advisement ' by the Interstate Commerce
commission, with which the litigants will
be required to file records and briefs for
the final adjudication . of the case.
Several minor- cases for reparation for
alleged excessive charges for freight are
yet to be heard by Examiner Brown and
the commission probably will not conclude
Its work before Tuesday.

Carl Herring Talks of Beligious Sig
nificance of life of MartyTcd
Carl IS. Herring delivered a ten-minute ad
dress on the spiritual significance of the
life and work of Abraham Lincoln at the
Christian Science service held Saturday
morning In Chamber' academy, "The na
tion has a divine heritage In the simple
tory of this slmpl man,".' aald Mr. Her
ring. "A man who can measure up to the
high ideal that Lincoln reached. Is worthy
indeed of study, and we may well b con
sldered In the light of what life ha to
teach of man as a spiritual creature.
"He stood among the' mountain peaks
and saw God not only as the. friend of the
free, but also of the oppressed. No mere
personality would warrant departure, from
our accustomed method of ''service, and no
one thing in him appeals to us, but all of
his great qualities bring home to our mind
the fact that history records no more sub
lime symbol of the divine mind than when
the shackles were stricken from the limbs
of the slaves." - ' '
Mr. Herring briefly analyzed the life of
the martyred president along th lines of
thought familiar to students of the work
of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy.

That Alva Wetsel, who died at Omaha
General hospital Wednesday afternoon,
made his fatal leap from a third story
window when left alone In a fevered con
dition by a nurse whose time waa divided
among three patients waa admitted by
witnesses at the inqueat held by Willis C.
Crosby, coroner. Friday afternoon. The
verdict finds that the hospital wa negli
gent in caring for the patient and In fail
ure to notify the coroner. . .
The family of the dead man wa repre
sented by a lawyer at th Inquest, Indi
cating that further aotlon would be taken
by them following developments of th ln-i
No reason for sending th body out of
th state to Council Bluffs was given.
With the exception of Dr. A. S. Pinto,
the attendant physician, no witnesses other
than ' hospital employes were called, al
though Coroner Crosby held others In read
iness had their testimony, been necessary
to the establishment of the facts:
Doctor Ordered Fresh Air.
"I told the nurse to open thS window.
as the room waa close," said Dr. Pinto,
telling on the stand of his last visit to the
patient before the accident which caused
his death. . "She said she .would as soon
as she had finished his bath."
Dr. Pinto testified that out of a possible
10, ,000 fever cases that he . had treated
In his long army experience and elsewhere
this was the first In which a patient had
shown suicidal bent. Dr. Pinto was called
to the hospital after the aocldent and
found Wetsel In his bed, suffering from a
fracture at the base of the skull, which
alone was a fatal injury. He also learned
that th third cervical vertebra had been
dislocated by the fall. Th patient was
suffering from shock. Wetsel's death en
sued at S o'clock In the afternoon. ' ' -
"I was In th hall waiting to sweep out
room when I heard somebody cry out
'Nurse! nurse! nurse!", testified Meta
Kell, a maid employed at the hospital.
"I ran Into the room and saw th man
Itttng on th window ledge with hla feet
hanging down. He turned and looked at
me and then dropped off. I got to htm
Just In time to touch his finger tips as he
'No, I didn't see any nurse there," an
swered th maid to th question of th
Fellow Patient Soands Alarnk.
Another patient In the room had sounded
th alarm. Wetsel had been under th
care of Miss Mary Rassmussen, a nurse,
who, In her testimony, staled that she
hsd to care for three fever patten ta, an
swer th telephone and occasionally do
other work for nurses Who were off duty.
Bhe testified that for a part of the time
the patient had been restrained to . keep
him In his bed, because of a tendency to
get up when he awakened from sleep.
These restraints had been removed under
direction of the physician, that Wetsel
might be turned over from time to Mm to
avoid hypostatlo pneumonia, which I a
danger that beset a typhoid patient who
remain too long In k fljed position.
"I had gone out to my desk to record
the patient' condition when the accident
happened," said Miss Rassmussen.; Bhe
aid that the restraint put on the patient
was solely for the purpose of keeping htm
off of his feet, not with th fear that he
would do violence to himself or to others.
Marie Wleck, head nurse, when called to
testify, admitted that the' patient had been
left alone, when she exclaimed:
"Why, I saw Miss Raasmuaaen after the
accident and she aald then that she had
been In hi rjom a short time before."
i Thi led to question which developed th
fact that Miss Rassmussen In her rounds
saw the patient about once In a half hour.
Carina- for Patient.
"Is It not onaf the first Instructions of
a physician te keep a typhoid patient off
hi feetr asked Byron BUrbank, attorney
for relative of Wetsel, in eroes-examlnlng
"Then the $10 a week compensation which
thi man paid Included that protection,
"Yea." answered the nurse.
Charlea Rebel, manager of the hospital,
wa questioned by Coroner Crosby and re
lated the Story of the eeoldenl. Then the
coroner went Into the matter of th failure
to notify hi offlee, gaining a curlou ad
mission from Robel.
"Did you hav an Idea that th case
might be Investigated T" asked the coroner.
-Tee," replied Robel, calmly.
"Who did you notify of the matter r
"Our office notified Mr. Wetsel and Mr.
Ward well, the man who arranged to brlnT
Wetset to the hospital." ,
"Did you notify anyone after that"

Hearing- Before House Com '
mittee on Commerce, .'
) - .- '
WASHINGTON, Feb. U.-RepresentUve
of humane societies and live stock associ
ations were before the house committee on
interstate and foreign commerce yesterday
testing against the manner in which the
railroads handle live stock enrouts to mar
One witness declared that 1O0.S00 hf ad 'it
stock were taken from the car dead every
year as a result of Inhuman handling. ' The
loss In money was estimated at millions in
the killing of stock and In the shrinkage cf
weight. " '
A bill was before the committee fixing
a minimum rate of alxteen miles an hour
at which the railroads may transport Uvn
stock shipments. -Shippers told the com
mittee today that frequently the rate was
less than two miles an hour on an average.
Dr. William O. Stillman, president of the
American Humane association, denounced
present conditions as "a disgrace to civil
isation." F. W. Gooding, president of the' National
Wool Growers' association, said most of
th ratlroad were "crasy over the' thing
of loading their engines with all they can
haul, resulting In slow handling and great
loss to shippers."
H presented resolution from hi organ
isation, and also th National Live Stock
rected, with the knowledge that there Is
no other medicine, at any price, made any
where else In the world, which will effect
so thorough and prompt a cure as a fifty
