Distinction la Pasienser Affairs.
Railways operating In Central passenger
association territory. Including the states
of Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan are
permitted, by an order Issued today by the
Interstate Commerce commission to exact
higher passenger fares for Interstate than
for Intrastate business where state legis
latures or state commissions have estab
lished a 2-cent a mile rate.
In the territory Indicated. Intrastate
fares are on a 2-cent basis, while Inter
state fares are made on a scale of Vh cents
a mile. The carriers asked for time in
which to prepare the necessnry data on the
Insufficiency bf the 2-cent rate and the
commission permits them therefore to
exact the higher rate until May 1, 1912.
The commission expresses the opinion,
however, that eventually there must be
established a distinction In quality be
tween intrastate and Interstate service, or
the two scales of fares must be made equal.

Holding that "In the absence of routing
Instructions' the shipper is entitled to have
his shipment moved via the cheapest

De Angells and Amedeo are now charged
with being active members of the Camorra

murder of Cuoccolo and conspiracy against
the other two.
Asyifftore today confirmed his earlier

which, he said had led him to believe that
the men he denounced were guilty. He de

ATLANTIC CITT, N. J., May 19.-The
report of the executive commission recom
mending the consolidation of Important!
boards of eburch government, home mis-1
slons, church erection and missions for
freedmen was presented to the Presby

to facilitate the transaction of busraeea.
The reduction plan eliminates thirty

the recommendation of the last assembly

Combines at New lork.

of Local Organizations.

Cndee Restraint of Trade to
Both Coasamers aad
NEW TORK, May 19 Sweeping chargea
of a gigantic conspiracy to maintain hteh
prices, to blacklist concerns not regarded
as "proper" trade, and to violate generally
the Sherman anti-trust law are made In a
government suit filed by Attorney General
Wlckersham In the United States court
here today against the so-called Lumber
Ten trade organizations and more than
lf0 Individuals are named as defendants in
this suit, which may be the first of several
planned by the Department of Justice
against combinations of retailers In staple
commodities and the necessaries of life to
prevent the ultimate consumer from buying
snywhere except from local retailers.
The government's suit is replete with
sensational allegations snd It asserted that
builders snd consumers of lumber the coun
try over are at the mercy of the retailers'
organisations In different sections of the
United States.
The suit filed today Is sgalnst the East
ern States Retail Lumber Dealers' associa
tion, which Is the central body of 'nine
local organisations covering five states, the
Distriot of Columbia and the cities of Balti
more and Philadelphia.
Alleaea I'ndne Restraint.
This Is the government's first anti-trust
suit conforming to the supreme court's
Standard Oil decision In that It alleges
"undue" and "unreasonable" restraint of
trade of the consumer and the manufac
turer. It la the evident purpose of the
plea to confine the charge largely to that
feature, small stress being placed on the
restraint of trade among the conspirators
Attorney General Wickershham and his
special assistant, Clark McKercher, have
devoted more than a year gathering the
evidence on which today s suit is based.
This evidence Includes copies of the al
leged agreements, black lists and reports
of the various organisations, branding
wholesalers and retailers who have dared
to violate the rules of the association as
"poachers," "mavericks,", "scalpers" .and
"Illegitimate dealers,' . to whom 'short
shrift' must be applied.
- e, Retailers Have Monopoly. '
The government charges In brief that by
an elaborate system of blacklisting not
only individual consumers, but some of the
largest Industrial corporations have been
prevented from dealing- directly with
wholesalers. By alleged-unlawful agree
ments and acts it is charged that all com
petition for the trade 'of the contractor,
the builders, the manufacturers of finished
limber products and the Individual con
sumer has been thrown entirely Into the
hands of the retailers. In the eastern states
by retail lumber dealers' associations and
its constituent organizations.
The government's bill alleges that In some
localities the wholesaler selling to a con
sumer has either been heavily fined or ex
pelled from the organisation.
Officials of the Department of Justice
regard the suit as the most Important, in
principle of any yet undertaken by the gov
ernment against alleged conspiracies said
to affect the cost of living. It Is believed
that should the courts uphold the govern
ment's contention that It Is a violation of
the Sherman anti-trust law to prevent ihe
ultimate consumer from buying direct from
the producer, other suits will be started
against combinations of retailers alleged
to be in control of the marketing of many
of tho commodities of life.

JUAREZ, Mexico. May 19. "I am going
to Mexico City. I have confidence In the
federal government. Rumors that someone

In this manner Francisco I. Madero, Jr.,
dslmissed the repoit from Mexico City this
morning that rumors were in circulation
that an attempt would be made on his life
when he arrived at the capital and urging
that precautions be taken.
When an Associated Tress representa
tive informed him of the receipt of the
message by a member of the El Paso Junta,
Mr. Madero smiled and shrugged his shoul
ders. "I have received hundreds of rumors all
through the revolution and It has been
my task to sift the reliable from the un
reliable," he added. "This one Is utterly
discredited. The federal government wants
to make peace with me."
- The face of the successful leader became
serious and he paced the floor of his of
fice with a quick, nervous stride.

"If, by any unfortunate occurrence, my
life should bo taken, anarchy would follow
In Mexico. I cannot for a moment taks
such a report seriously. My plans will not
be changed." - ' ''
Mr. Madero said present plans contem
plated the departur of himself and party
for the capital tomorrow, but added that
this might be changed after he had con
ferred with Dr. Vasoues Gomes this after
noon. Some of - Madero's advisers believe it
would be more advisable and courteous to
those who are about to step down If ths
rebel leader and his party were to post
pone their entrance to the capital until
the resignation of President Diaz hsd actu
ally gone Into effect. This point will be
definitely decided at this afternoon's con
ference. The trip will be made as unosten
tiously as possible.
Judge Carbajal today said It was neces
sary for the revolutionists to draw up In
blanket form the substance of what will be
their ultimate demands, these to be trans
mitted by telegraph to Mexico City Imme
diately with the object of securing the pas
sage If possible of certain measures desired
by the revolutionists before the Chamber
of Deputies adjourns at the end of the
present month.
Diss Telegraph to Madero.
It came out In the conversation between
Provisional President Madero and the As
sociated Press representative this morning
that for the first time since the revolution
started President Dies has held direct com
munication with the revolutionary leader.
Broken In spirit, sick and seeing before
him his native country convulsed with re
bellion, President' Diaz last night wired his
personal assurance to Mr. Madero of his
Intention to retire.
"Theother points can be settled by you
and Judge Carbajal," the mweaage said.
The message mads a desp Impression
about revolutionary headquarters. Wben
the fact of President Diss's direct com
munication became known and a feeling
was shown that Mexico, their beloved
country, torn and devastated by the long
struggle, would at last know peace.
Reason af Conspiracy.
Plans for the dopsrturs to Mexico City
within a few days of Provisional Pres
ident Francisco ' I. Madero, Jr., re
ceived a temporary setback this morn
ing when a member of the El Paso revolu
tionary junta received a telegram from the
capital stating that persistent rumors were
In circulation from the capital stating that
peisistent rumors a ere In circulation there
cf the existence .of a plot to attempt the
life of Madero . upon his arrival.
Beyond this bare statement, the message
gave no details, but the matter was con
sidered seriously enough to result in a
hurried consultation of Insurrecto leaders
as to the advisability of postponing the
trip of Madero until such time ss the re
ports were disapproved or affairs In the
capital were In a more settled condition.
A definite announcement as to this will
probably be made later In the day.
Outside of this suddtn unfavorable phase,
there were r.o development In the situation
this morning.
Mr. Madero and his advisers are still
awaiting an answer from Mexico City as
to the immediate naming of the four
