HOWMtD - .m. HIV til AND SIXTEENTH STREETS FORARER OHWITHESS STAHD Before Senate Lobby Committee Ohio Han Denies Mulhall's Story. UNION PACIH0 SALE 18 UP Witness But He; Klunrrd In the Ite arsranlsatlon Only to See that the Oortrnmml Got Its Shnre. Railroad Track Scales Give Shipper the Worst of the Deal WASHINGTON, Au-. !.-Investlcatlon or alleged Irregularities and. dlsorensn cles in the weighing of freight has dis closed the Imposition ot unreasonable charges, said to constitute ai grant , discrimination as would tt difference ot freight rate. In a report ot an Investigation Issued today the Interstate Commerce commis sion declares thit "a majority of track, scales now In use should at ones bo re built In order to obtain accurate re sults." Sharp criticism ot the methods of weigh ing such commodities as grain, cout and lumber la made, it being alleged that shippers almost invariably get the -ort ot the transaction. The commission has no authority under the law to Issue an order correcting the evils disclosed, but It recommends that congress confer on tt powers to fix points at which track scales shall bo installed to prescribe their standard' to test or supervise the testing and supervise tho operation of scales. The American Hallway association in compliance with suggestions of tho com. mission will shortly promulgato weigh ing regulations. Milwaukee Welcomes Flagship Niagara MILWAUKEE, Aug. 6,-Tho Perry flag ship. Niagara, with its escort, was given a great ovation on its arrival In Milwau kee today. There was a dipping of colors, blowing ot whistles and ringing ot bells by alt craft In tho harbor. In Juneau park, on tho lake front, 1.S00 boys dressed In red, white and blue caps and capes, representing a human flag, sang tho "Star Bpangled Banner." Today's program ' Included a reception and luncheon for the Ferry guests, and In the afternoon a red, whit and blue nutompblle parade. WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.-Congresslonal Investigation of Martin M. Mulhalls story of his alleged lobbying activities for the National Association ot Manufacturers took on a dual aspect today, when the special house committee began grinding on the thousands of letters already in troduced beforo the senate committee and prepared to cross-examine Mulhall on his claims of Influence with various repre sentatives. The first part of the day was taken up with preliminary testi mony of Louis Belbold of the New York World. The senate committee having finished with Mulhall, began hearing some of the men referrod to In his correspondence. Former Senator Korakcr was the first and he generally denied Mulhall's claims of Influence with him. Chairman Overman today notified for mer Representative Charles K. Llttlefletd of Maine that the committee would be glad to hear any statement he desired to moke. Mulhall claimed him as one of the friends of the National Association of Manufacturers In many fights before committees of congress. Llttloflold re cently wrote Honator Overman from Switzerland, asking for a hearing and de nying many ot Mulhall's charges. Fornkrr Hxnlnlns, Foraker explained his connection with tho sale ot Union Pacific to a reorganiza tion committee In 1697, which was brought into tho lobby investigation by David Lamnr. Lamar testified that Foraker, through Influence In Washington, took a leading part In the deal at Lamar's solicitation. Foraker testified that at the time ot reorganisation the Union Pacific owed the United States 130,000,000 and one pro posal was that tho government received enly part of that sum. Foraker swore that he did not figure In the case except In an effort to seo that the government got the whole sum. Foraker said ho had known Mulhall since 1883, when he (Foraker) was a can didate for governor of Ohio. Ho did not know how active Mulhall was In his behalf in that campaign. "I don't remember that I ever asked him to work for me, and I don't know that I asked him not to," he sold. Foraker denied that lie ever favored any legisla tion wanted by the National Association of Manufacturers or that he talked with Mulhall about legislation in Washington. Hp said he frequently talked to men in the capital, however, In those days about legislation. "Uofore wo got so good as we are n,ow," he said, "I thought It was all right to answer questions. Ot course, I never had any Idea that these conversations were to be made the basis of reports by some lobbyist." Foraker denied Mulhall's testimony ot a conference at which many leading re publicans opposed to the nomination of Taft gathered at Foraker's house to dis cuss plans for concerted oposltlon, "No such conference was held at my house or elsewhere," said Foraker. HOUSE I.OIIIIY 8TAHTS VOnK Selliold of Tinvr York Would Discus I.lrra of I'uhllo Men. WASHINGTON, Aug. R-The house lobby investigation got Under way today with Louis Belbold, who prepared the ex posures of Martin M. Mulhall for tW New Tork World, as the first witness. Identifying published statements and oth erwise laying foundations for the cross examination of former Representative McDermott ot Illinois, one of the mem bers of tho house named in Multiall'r charges, was represented by counsel. Discussing the life of public men classi fied as those whom tho National Asso ciation of Manufacturers "had no diffi culty in reaching and influencing for ouslncss, political or sympathetlo reso lutions," Mr. Seibold testified he had no purpose of Implying "any moral obliquity or legislative impropriety" to tho men mentioned. "The basts for this list," said Mr. Set bold, "was the Mulhall letters, his per sonal narrative and statements he mad to me." He told tho committee that 4QQ or 500 new tetters had been discovered within the last two or three days in which Rep resentative Falrchild ot New York was mentioned. Mexican Prisoners to Fort Rosecrans EL PASO, Tex., Aug. 5. While attor neys employed by relatives of some ot the 200 Mexican federal soldiers, who have been imprisoned at Fort Dllss since their capture several months ago at Naco, Arts., were at Austin, endeavoring to se cure from United States District Judge Maxey an order for the release of tho prisoners, the Mexicans were today secretly removed from Fort Dllss and sent west, presumably to Fort Rose crans at San Diego. It Is stated that the federal prisoners at Nogales, Arts., also will be removed. At Fort Roiecrana the men can be guarded by artillerymen, thus leaving the cavalrymen a.t Fort Bliss free for border patrol duty. Two Are Injured When Hotel Burns PHILADELPHIA, Aug.
